I am writing to you in regards to the preservation medical rights. The CMA recently proposed the idea of vaccination mandates for school and daycare entry. Consideration of any mandate is a dangerous infringement upon the basic medical rights of Canadians. Under Section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms we are guaranteed the right of bodily autonomy.
Additionally the Patient’s Bill of Rights ensures the right of informed consent. If a parent, after much research, decides not to vaccinate but for financial reasons cannot home school or otherwise provide homecare for their child(ren), they are then consenting under duress.
Even if a family chooses to fully vaccinate, they may not agree with new vaccines that can be added to the schedule and thus also mandated. Canada is only one of 2 G8 nations with no compensation program for vaccine injury. This leaves families with the full financial and medical burden of caring for their loved one without recourse.
Please know that supporting mandates on vaccination undermines the basic rights and support for the families of this nation.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
