In an interview on CBC’s Power and Politics, conservative leadership candidate Leslyn Lewis firmly defended her position against the global pandemic treaty that would undermine Canadian sovereignty.
During the interview, the host, Vassy Kapelos, suggested that Lewis wasn’t basing her claims on reality because the WHO hadn’t fully drafted its treaty.
Lewis responded, “If 190 countries are getting together to put together the framework of a treaty, and working on the treaty, and they have met twice already, in December and in March — that is not a theory, that is actually fact. And this is something that is happening, the WHO is proposing a global pandemic treaty, and that will limit a sovereign nation’s ability to set things such as when the borders will be closed, what kind of protective equipment will be used.”
“Can you point to any sentence or any document that says that?” asked the host, perhaps not knowing the WHO’s own website reports on their plan to implement the treaty by 2024.
Lewis, an international lawyer, responded, “They have stated that it’s a world pandemic treaty.”
“We need to be vigilant about what we sign onto and what we consent to.”
During the WHO’s special session in December entitled “The World Together,” they kickstarted the process that would, under Article 19 in the WHO’s constitution, provide the globalist organization “with the authority to adopt conventions or agreements on any matter within WHO’s competence.” [Emphasis added]
This authority was initially designed to pertain only to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control but is being expanded to include dictating Member States’ future pandemic responses.
Lewis has sounded alarm bells on the WHO’s proposed treaty for several weeks. She recently stated the treaty would allow the WHO to determine what is a pandemic and when one is occurring, even over something non-viral like an obesity crisis.
More recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the German Health Minister added that countries disobeying regulations dictated by the WHO through their pandemic treaty might need to be sanctioned.
First, media outlets ignored Lewis, but then they attacked her.
Earlier this week, she was framed as an “anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist” by Press Progress.
In the article, Lewis was mocked for tying Bill Gates to the WHO’s Global Pandemic Treaty — even though the Gates Foundation has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to the WHO and currently stands as their largest donor, second only to the United States.
