Dear Members and Friends, August 22, 2015
As many of you are aware after reading our Summer 2015 V-Bulletin
, the 80,000 member Canadian Medical
Association (CMA) intends to vote on a "mandatory vaccination
Resolution at its General Council meeting in Halifax, August 23-26 recommending that all children registering for school or daycare show
proof they are fully vaccinated. We interpret this as an intention to
lobby politicians for legislative change to impose vaccine mandates and
remove parental decision making about vaccination.
The CMA Resolution is an attempt to disempower parents from deciding
which, if any vaccines a child would get, and aims to make CMA doctors
the sole arbiters of who qualifies for exemptions. Such a move is
illegal, unjust and unethical.
Vaccine Choice Canada has mounted a vigorous protest against the Resolution. Our letter
, sent to the CMA Board of Directors and Executive, sets out the
legal, medical and justice issues that are violated by any policy which
attempts to impose mandatory medical treatment of any kind, including
We are asking all concerned people to write their own letters of protest
to the CMA. Please feel free to use the points we present in your own
letter to the CMA opposing this ill conceived plan to remove parents’
right to make fully informed medical decisions on behalf of their
children. The CMA address, email and fax numbers are provided both in
our letter, and the recent summer 2015 V-Bulletin, and are set out
below for your convenience.
Simultaneously, we've also launched an online petition
titled No Vaccine Mandates in Canada!
The Petition is directed at the Canadian Medical Association which we
invite you to sign and add your comments about why you think mandatory
vaccination is unacceptable in a “free” society. Every time someone
signs the Petition, it is sent directly to the CMA office in Ottawa.
Since launching the petition last night, it is already circulating
around the world and has garnered hundreds of signatures and comments,
all in support of this initiative.
the CMA with more protests than they’ve ever received about
any health related issue. Please share the Petition link with as many
people as possible, especially on social media
to insure that our
message goes out in ever widening circles. Let the CMA know what you
think about their plan to impose mandatory vaccination on
Canadian children as a condition of entry to school and daycare.
We thank you for participating in this Call to Action to protect and
preserve our health freedoms and our personal and civil rights
guaranteed by the Canadian Constitution.
