Fro Jerche started this petition to Heather Stefenson (Premier of Manitoba)

Pandemic or no pandemic, the government has primary authority in Manitoba and in a democratic country, the people are the government.

Throughout the course of the Pandemic, the people of Manitoba have sacrificed many constitutional rights including but not restricted to the right to peacefully assemble and the right to travel.  With the most recent mandates, many citizens of Manitoba are now being given further medical requirements in order to enter public facilities, to receive education and even to carry on in their workplace.  We, the people, have allowed this to go on in full recognition that our physical health is important. 

After months of punitive restrictions we are also reminded that our freedom to make decisions in the best interest of ourselves and our families is also a significant responsibility.  A responsibility we willfully accept as our own.  The government, health or educational institutions can make recommendations but in the end we are responsible for decisions affecting our bodies and those of our family members. And we willingly do so without the desire to affect others in a criminal manner. We want that responsibility back. 

Public Health Recommendations? Yes!

Public Health Mandates? No. 

Mandates must stop. Why? 

Words associated with mandates are force, intimidate, social pressure.  Each of these words coincide with bullying and we all know bullying is wrong. The government told us to think of others. 90% of Manitobans do! We do not need to be mandated to care.  Participating in a medical procedure does not nor will it ever determine the amount of 'care' a person has in them for others.  Mandates take away our freedom to willingly care for others by telling us exactly how and where we should do so. That is wrong! 

There is no freedom in that.

The words essential and non-essential have been 'thrown around' during the pandemic. Let it be known that all people in our country are essential.  And those people have the right to choose what is and is not essential to them.  We are here to remind the Manitoba government that as citizens of Canada we are and have all been workers in the fight against Covid and we want freedom to decide how we will continue to contribute in the fight against this virus.  When doing an experiment, scientists need people to actively risk, those to take placebos and those who are not involved. All are valuable. Without one group the experiment is useless. We are asking for the freedom to choose which group we wish to be in. 

It is disheartening (to say the least) that Manitobans are being segregated based on their Covid 19 vaccination status. 

Please sign if you agree.

The mandates must end.
