PETITION TO THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA

  

    We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada, draw the attention of the House of Commons to the following:

    Whereas:

    

      

        A review conducted by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization found no information regarding the transmission of COVID-19 on airplanes;

      

    

    

      

        According to Westjet's first Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Tammy McKnight, as of April 23, 2021, there had been no known case of COVID19 transmission onboard any Canadian aircraft;

      

    

    

      

        An International Air Transport Association study in 2020 found that out of 1.2 billion passengers worldwide, only 44 cases of COVID-19 were reported as flight-related transmission;

      

    

    

      

        Countries around the world have removed their vaccine mandates and restrictions; and

      

    

    

      

        The vaccine mandate imposed on Canadians taking domestic flights, trains and ferries is an unreasonable infringement of their rights and freedoms that cannot be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.

      

    

    Therefore we, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada and the Minister of Transport to:

    1) Abolish the domestic vaccine passport requirement for Canadian citizens and permanent residents taking domestic flights; and

    2) End all federally regulated COVID-19 vaccine mandates and restrictions.
