People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier launched an application for judicial review against the Trudeau Government yesterday in an attempt to fight against the ban of unvaccinated Canadians who travel by air.
Bernier, who broke the news on Blackballed w/ james di fiore, before filing the application, believes his constitutional rights have been violated after Canada’s Transport Minister Omar Alghabra banned unvaccinated travelers on October 30th, 2021.
“With implementation of these Orders, Mr. Bernier is restricted in participating in democratic discussions and the electoral process. As the leader of the fifth largest political party in Canada, in 2021, Mr. Bernier flew more than 79,000 km for work purposes. As a party leader, Mr. Bernier is required to reach thousands of people each year and to participate in various political, intellectual and charitable activities in all regions of the country. Travel other than by air is only reasonably feasible within a relatively limited radius of his residence in Quebec.
On October 30, 2021, the federal government announced that anyone travelling by air, train, or ship, must have received two of the Covid shots. The travel vaccination mandate has prevented approximately six million unvaccinated Canadians (15% of Canada’s population) from travel within Canada, and prevents them from flying out of Canada. Canadians cannot travel to help sick loved ones, to get to work, to attend university, to visit family and friends, to take international vacations, and to live ordinary lives like other citizens.”

Bernier has contracted COVID during this pandemic, and feels that his anti-bodies should be enough to allow him to travel. He also says that a person’s constitutional rights should never be prioritized below a medical emergency, despite the possibility of the unvaccinated infecting other citizens.
