The opening statement of the Nova Scotia Provincial State of Emergency states, “On 22 March 2020, the Government of Nova Scotia declared a provincial state of emergency to help contain the spread of COVID-19.” (Link below). Before I get started, I want to thank Jordan Hopkins for their contribution to the following verbiage.

I hope to update this as time goes on, but data from the CDC has shown that the Infection Fatality Ratio for the following age brackets is as follows: 0-19 years: 0.003%, 20-49 years: 0.02%, 50-69 years: 0.5%, 70+ years: 5.4%. 

The Canadian Statistics show: 0-19 years: 0.0045%, 20-49 years: 0.067%, 50-69 years: 1.61%, 70+ years: 22.23%. 

According to the data available, the premise of the State of Emergency is not accurate. COVID-19 is not a serious risk to "All Nova Scotians, " rather a minor health risk to everyone under the age of 70, (based on Canadian and American statistics). It is a more serious health risk to those Nova Scotians/Canadians ages 70+ according to the data.

Voluntary measures can be adopted by those demographics who are most at risk. Enforcing compliance by those who are statistically not at risk has negative consequences on the economy, mental health, civic cohesion, and many other factors. 

The government continually changes the restrictions during the "phases" of this emergency. During a State of Emergency, no price gouging (inflation) is allowed on essential items and services, yet the price of gas in Nova Scotia has increased by over .60 cents/L by times during the pandemic. The references to "new normal", "increased health and safety practices", "[required] face coverings" is completely unnecessary and leaves the door open to permanent, imposed changes for the foreseeable future, even when the worst part of the pandemic is over.

Instead of mandatory orders, I call on the government to publish data to help individuals monitor Covid-19 and make suggestions based on the data that is obtained to help citizens make informed decisions. I call on Premier Iain Rankin, Dr. Robert Strang, and every Nova Scotian MLA with a conscience to terminate the State of Emergency. The solution must be better than the problem.

In the interim, please share this petition if you agree. Feel free to exercise your Charter Rights, Human Rights Act, Health Protection Act, freedom of expression, mask exemptions, and your right to protest during these difficult times #justsayno
