End The Mandates

February 10, 2022

For two years Canadians have done what the government asked of them. When we were told it would take two weeks to flatten the curve, we stayed home. We adapted as restrictions changed, mandates were implemented, lockdowns came and went. The target for what the end of the pandemic looked like was moved, changed, and thrown out all together.

Since March 2020, Canadians have sacrificed, persevered, and worked hard to get through this pandemic. Not a single one of us expected we’d be in the same place two years later.

But now, Canadians are tired. Every time it seems like we’re on our way back to some sort of normal, a new variant shows up, pulling the rug out from underneath us. Every time it feels like we’ve made some progress, we’re back at zero.

Premiers Kenney and Moe are leading the way back to normal by removing restrictions. Canada’s Chief Medical Officer Theresa Tam has said all existing public health measures need to be “re-evaluated” so that we can get back to some normalcy”. It’s time for Justin Trudeau to follow their lead, and to remove the federal mandates and restrictions.

Now in the House of Commons, Canada’s Conservatives have called on the government to table a plan for the lifting of all federal mandates and restrictions. We’re calling for that plan to be tabled by February 28th. It’s time to see the road map to normal.

We have come to a point in this country where the restrictions and mandates are causing more harm than good. We’ve created a divide between families and friends, and the Prime Minister’s rhetoric has only made that worse.

It is in the best interest of our country to end the divisiveness and unite as Canadians. No more us versus them, it’s time to get back to the true north strong and free. We’ve worked hard, we’ve sacrificed enough.

Two years ago, this virus was unknown. But since then, science has developed treatments, vaccines, and best practices. We’re at a point where it no longer makes sense to have the virus in the driver’s seat, we need to start living with the virus and get back to normal.
