Being forced to take COVID vaccine to keep your job would be ‘illegal’: Canadian lawyer

DM

A Canadian constitutional lawyer says it would not only be “unconstitutional” but “illegal and unenforceable” for an employer to force an employee to take a COVID-19 vaccine. “Any way you cut it, mandatory vaccination in all employment contexts would be unconstitutional and/or illegal and unenforceable,” said Rocco Galati, executive director and founder of the Toronto-based Constitutional Rights Centre, in a March 8 video on employee rights when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine. Galati said that according to current Canadian law, “any medical treatment including vaccination, without the informed consent of the citizen is unconstitutional.” “The Supreme Court of Canada has already ruled this,” he said, adding that if “any government body tried to impose mandatory vaccinations, it’s unconstitutional.”
