BC judge denies government’s request to drop human rights case against them

A judge has denied BC Chief Public Health Officer Bonnie Henry’s application to throw out a challenge against her government’s authoritarian COVID vaccine mandates.

BC Supreme Court Justice Simon Coval decided that the CSASPP’s petition — which alleges that Henry’s public health orders were unreasonable and unconstitutional — had met the requirements of ‘public interest standing.’

“In my view, the petitioners are correct that whether those actions comply with the Charter and the [Judicial Review Procedure Act] are clearly questions suitable for judicial determination.”

“Regarding a serious issue, the Impugned Orders directly impact members of a defined and identifiable group in a serious way that, at least on the surface, relates to their Charter rights.”

Coval further stated that the petitioners proposed alternative approaches to the government’s draconian mandates, which “raises substantial questions that meet the threshold of ‘clearly not frivolous.'”

Ultimately, the judge ruled that the issue was serious enough to go to court.

As previously reported by The Counter Signal, BC’s policy was so extreme that even those with legitimate medical conditions or those with religious reasons not to get vaccinated were not exempt from having to provide proof of vaccination.

In fact, there were absolutely no exemptions to BC’s vaccine passport system.

“Those rare people who have a medical reason why they can’t be immunized … they will not be able to attend those events during this period,” Henry said at the time.

“This is a temporary measure that’s getting us through a risky period where we know people who are unvaccinated are at a greater risk, both of contracting and spreading this virus.”

Currently, vaccine data dumps are casting shadows over the ‘safe’ vaccines that Henry mandated, suggesting more lawsuits could be coming.
