Your health care decisions are personal.
Medical and therapeutic ethics are fundamentally important.
The B.C. provincial government has announced a mandate that as of September 13, 2021, proof of having received one or more experimental COVID-19 injections will be required as a condition of full participation in public life.
Mental Health Wilderness First Aid opposes this profound violation of Canadians' constitutional rights and of medical and therapeutic ethics. We respect the legal and moral rights of all Canadians to privacy and fundamental liberties. We will not be requiring health passes of our staff, contractors, or students as a condition of participating in our programs.
Health passes, or vaccine passports, create a system of legal coercion and medical apartheid that violates both the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms and the Nuremberg Code as well as basic ethical guidelines. It is wrong to coerce someone to undertake a medical procedure.
Our duties are to our professional ethics, our conscience, and our civilization, not to an unconstitutional government mandate. We will not help the government violate the Charter nor contribute to the downfall of Canada as a free and just society.
