After Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Government imposed one of the most restrictive vaccine mandates in the developed world, one Canadian town has taken medical tyranny to the next level by refusing to grant marriage licenses to couples that aren’t fully vaccinated.
The Town of Oakville, Ontario, a small city with more than 200,000 residents, will not allow a couple to apply for a marriage license unless they both show proof of full vaccination.
In a statement, the town acknowledges that this requirement exceeds that of the Province of Ontario, but the new requirement is an effort “to provide added protection to our community and town staff from COVID-19.” We thought that’s what the vaccine was supposed to do?
But it’s not just marriage: the unvaccinated in Oakville will be effectively barred from a number of public services outlined in the statement below:
- Indoor use of recreation and culture facilities, including arenas, community centres, pools, senior centres, the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, and Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate
- ServiceOakville counter at Town Hall
- Any new appointments for marriage licences and ceremonies. (Appointments for marriage licenses and ceremonies that have already been pre-booked do not require proof of full vaccination.) Ceremonies will be held inside town hall as of November 4, 2021.
