The prime minister of Canada Justin Trudeau has recently drawn a lot of attention when he stated that he didn’t force anyone to get vaccinated with the Covid-19 vaccines:
“While not forcing anyone to get vaccinated I chose to make sure all the incentives and all the protections were there to encourage Canadians to get vaccinated.”
While this might technically be true as the Canadian government did not physically and forcibly insert the shot in people’s arms the readers and the Canadians will very gladly go through his numerous attempts at vaccine coercion in various speeches. Clearly his gaslighting is one of a kind.
“If you don’t want to get vaccinated that’s your choice. But don’t think you can get on a plane or a train just like vaccinated people.”
“And now is the time for people who are still resistent to getting vaccinated to realise that their choice which has consequences at putting our kids at risk which has consequences at having us risk more lockdowns because they haven’t chosen to get vaccinated yet – that there will be consequences for those people in not being able to go to the movie theatre not being able to go on a train or a plane.”
“I want to stand up for the choice of those who were there for their neighbours not those who are risking us all going into further lockdowns of slowing our economic recovery.”
“Trying to bring people together is not always compatible with science with respect for human rights with the best way to move things forward. I mean when Poilievre talks of ‘We need to unite people’ ‘We need to bring people together’ we’re talking of defending the rights of people who are anti-vax.”
“If you want to get on a plane or a train in the coming months you have to be fully vaccinated. So families who are with their kids don’t have to worry that someone is going to be a pandemic danger and sit next to them across the aisle.”
“Unfortunate that people who chose not to get vaccinated are now the ones clogging up our ICU systems and our hospital beds should be available for people who did their work and did get vaccinated.”
“We have to make sure that business choose to move forward with vaccination requirements aren’t subject to unnecessary or unjustified lawsuits.”
“If you make a choice a personal choice to not get vaccinated then I will have no sympathy for you when you come to me and say ‘Oh but I can’t go out to a restaurant with my friends or I’m not being allowed to go to the gym or my employer is telling me I have to continue to work from home’. You don’t have a right to endanger others.”
For Trudeau the non-vaccinated were putting them all at risk. I hear liar liar pants on fire.
