Stop Mandatory Vaccinations in Alberta Public Schools
This petition had 373 supporters
Yesterday, April 18, 2017, Marilyn Bergstra, a trustee for the Edmonton Catholic school board, introduced a motion to have mandatory vaccines. Trustees with Edmonton Catholic Schools voted unanimously Tuesday to ask the Alberta School Boards Association to join them as they lobby the government to make the legislative change.
Please join us in stopping this motion. Let the school board and the Alberta government know that this is a choice that the parents get to make.
It is our parental right to make decisions on our children's health, it is not a schools place to force a child to be vaccinated.
Not only does this go against our parental rights, it also goes against our fundamental rights that are protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. 2 (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; It also can infringe on our freedom of religion if parents decide not to vaccinate due to religious reasons.
This also can set a very dangerous precedent to allow Schools to take away our choices as parents, especially when the health of our children are concerned.
This Motion not only takes away a parents choice, it goes against our rights and freedoms, and needs to be stopped! Please sign to show that we will not stand, and to stop this from going any further than it already has.
