(TargetLiberty.org) – The pandemic has caused its fair share of draconian restrictions. This time, a Canadian judge has banned a father from seeing his own children because he hasn’t been vaccinated against COVID-19.

On January 31, a judge in New Brunswick, Canada, ruled an unvaccinated father of three should be denied access to his children because he allegedly endangers one of them. Justice Nathalie Godbout of the Court of Queen’s Bench said she was issuing the order “with a heavy heart” – but that didn’t stop her from ending the man’s shared custody agreement with his ex-partner. She also ordered that the mother can have the children vaccinated without the father’s consent.
Godbout claimed the order was necessary because one of the children, a 10-year-old girl, has a compromised immune system and is more vulnerable to COVID. She also said the father can request the lifting of the suspension if he gets vaccinated.
Canada has some of the strictest anti-COVID laws in the western world, and a growing number of Canadians have had enough of them. Hundreds of truckers are currently occupying central Ottawa in protest against vaccine mandates despite a draconian police crackdown, and there have also been protests against compulsory mask-wearing.
Despite the opposition, though, liberal Premier Justin Trudeau seems determined to continue his heavy-handed tactics.
