The he final day of hearings focused on family law in the context of courts that simply uphold, without any question, state doctrine on the Covid so-called “vaccines” and that in almost all instances in Canada have denied the choice of parents who are against the shots for their children, when another parent is for them; the economic and personal impacts of the mandates, particularly where business owners are concerned; the flaws and failures of the public health response, with expert testimony from Ontario’s former Chief Medical Officer for Health; testimonies from elected representatives; expert testimony from a prominent whistle blower on Pfizer’s safety trial data; and, the development of an agenda for the “next steps” taskforce. This brought to a close this powerful round of citizen hearings, with more promised for the future.
Myriam Bohemier, the only Quebec participant in the hearings, is a Montreal lawyer, who spoke in English but was aided when necessary by the translation assistance offered by Richard Girgis of Fearless Canada. Bohemier spoke on family law issues of relevance. She discussed parents who disagree with each other, where one does not want their children to be jabbed. The parents who do not want the injections have “less rights than a serial killer” in a legal proceeding, and they have no defense. Parents who protest against the jabbing of their children, in family law courts, are formally treated as “conspiracy theorists,” and their arguments are dismissed. Only a single Ontario judgment was favorable to dissenting parents—but in Quebec, all judgments have ordered “vaccinations” and have humiliated dissenting parents as “conspiracy theorists”. February, which was likely the darkest month of these two years in Quebec, saw three judgments that prohibited parents from relying on experts to challenge public “recommendations” on “vaccination”. Judges decided to ensure 100% adherence to “public health recommendations”. Bohemier tried to gain a full hearing on the merits of this decision, but the courts treated the injections as an urgent matter in an “emergency”. Judges rely on affidavits, public policy documents, and the Facebook pages of the “conspiracy theorist” parents, in devising their rulings. The only exemption would be for children where the family doctor swears that the injection would be contraindicated. Otherwise, anti-injection parents have zero defense. When Bohemier tried to introduce documents produced by experts critical of the “vaccines,” the judge assured the opposing lawyer that he would disregard all documents coming from outside Canada; in other cases, judges have called into question the expertise of opposing doctors, thus dismissing their reports from submitted files. In some cases judges barked at dissident experts, “tell me ‘yes’ or ‘no’: is it safe?”. The unfairness of judges has also been shielded from appeals. Parents supporting injection, were relieved of any duty to provide scientific support for their choice.
In response to questions from the panel, on parental rights, Bohemier said it is an established right for parents to exercise vigilance and care of their children, and have parental authority. But on questions that affect “the nation,” some parents are clearly robbed of their authority. Is there any public movement protesting the bias of the courts? Richard Girgis noted that Quebec probably had the biggest protest movement in Canada, from the spring of 2020 onward, and the Conservative Party of Quebec gained enormous ground by challenging the pandemic policies; there were massive protests, on every issue of relevance—masks, lockdowns, jab mandates, etc. Despite this, the media and the National Assembly of Quebec were effectively locked in step behind the government. Quebec media in particular were viciously slanderous against protesters and dissidents. Bohemier is a member of Reinfo Covid, which has 10,000 members.
Bohemier has tried to use freedom of speech rights on the part of protesting parents, to defend them against their inputs being nullified. Bohemier has decided to make a documentary of the procedures to be followed by protesting parents. “We are not ‘complotistes’ (conspiracy theorists), but rather ‘questionistes’ (questioners)”. Bohemier has even been assailed as a “complotiste” by rival lawyers in cases. Judges have dismissed basic facts—such as the mRNA “vaccines” being experimental—or have (ironically) accused her of being melodramatic by describing “vaccination” as an issue with life or death consequences. Bohemier is also preparing a letter of protest on how Chief Justice Richard Wagner who, since September of 2021, imposed a policy requiring “vaccination” of all his fellow judges, plus making disparaging comments about the Freedom Convoy. She asks: “do we still have a right to a fair trial?”. Judges in Quebec argue that they cannot substitute for executive decisions, says Girgis, which means that right out of the gate they have sworn themselves against exercising any kind of independence. In the end, Bohemier says, children are losing their rights to their parents.
Karen Kobel: “As a business owner during this pandemic, my family, my staff and myself were greatly impacted by the rules, restrictions, mandates, and lockdowns that were set upon us without full transparency, communication, data, and support. It was heartbreaking to watch our livelihoods suffer and taken away from our community and our clients when offering mental, physical, emotional, spiritual help in such heavy and dark times.
I also suffered side effects and vaccine injuries after receiving one dose of this treatment. This put me in a unique category: injured, “unvaxxed,” and a business owner. I set forth on a journey for answers and sent in my side effects and injuries to CAERS, VISP, and the regular adverse effects of a vaccine. I was able to run my business as someone suffering side effects with only 1 dose, but I couldn’t go out to eat for my anniversary, birthday, or swim lessons for my daughter. It was a test of my mental heath, resiliency, morals, principles, and authenticity, but I have now seen the other side and will never go against my instincts.”
Josh Shulman, also in BC, was the owner of the Smugglers’ Smokehouse restaurant until he had to close it. “The COVID policies enacted by our federal and Provincial governments completely destroyed my wife and I’s ability to run our business successfully. The lockdowns and restrictions completely took away one of our two locations. Due to size and location of our remaining restaurant location, were were unable to have outdoor seating or seat enough people inside to make the money we needed to pay our business loans. The FREE money being handed out robbed us of our employees. Our only option was to continue to go deeper in debt in order to make it through the lockdowns. That option was not something we were very comfortable with but we were contemplating it. Until we saw that we were going to be expected to police peoples health status on behalf of the government via the “Vaccine Passport”.
We felt that was a very unreasonable ask. Especially when it became common knowledge that the passport was not about safety but more about coercion. The government was using their ability to restrict activities as an incentive for more people to accept the vaccine. At that point in time, we decided that we did not want to continue to fight to survive. With no end in sight, how long would we be going deeper in debt to feed our family?
We made the decision to sell off all of our equipment, find someone willing to take over our lease and close the business we had worked so hard to create. Not because we had failed at business but because our health officials and politicians had destroyed our business model. Prior to the COVID policies we were on track. Seeing positive growth from year to year. Now we are struggling to get our financial lives back on track after loosing everything we worked hard to create.”
