This is the first time I have ever thought the “PM” was telling the truth about his own beliefs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA1yCIHMJwY. Is a travesty! Nenshi is a liberal and this is why we have mandatory masks in Calgary, not for health but for politics. A few months ago there was talk of defunding the police. I think we should defund the politicians who have clearly used our own tax dollars to bribe the police not to mention buy out mainstream media. The media has done a fantastic job of making people think masks are normal, safe and they protect you. The road to the holocaust was paved with people just doing their jobs.
I refuse to wear a mask at work, I have been allowed to wear a face shield so I can keep my job. Still hard to breathe, weird echo and quite uncomfortable. Plus I feel like I am wearing a cone on my head like a pet who just came home from the vet. I do not feel safer. And definitely not normal. I worry that I find it hard to breathe inside this cone and see others struggling to breathe as well. What I find most shocking is people disregarding their own senses in favor of the narrative. Why do people lie? Because it’s easier. Why do people lie to themselves? Same reason. I look forward to the day people wake up and recover from this blind faith. I saw a picture of a newborn infant with a Spiderman mask on the other day. This parent should be arrested.

Most people just go along to get along. Those people are the scariest of all because they will literally do anything they are told.

that’s what one of my nieces said – she just does what she’s told – I, on the other hand – have never liked anyone telling me what to do

Thanks, it’s good to know there are some people who don’t just accept this “New normal” Boy, I hate that term. I wonder, how do you get somebody to be brave and go against the grain when it isn’t easy? For me it’s easy. It’s called doing the right thing.

I hate “new normal” too – and they were shoving it down our throats as early as April. I have been extremely disappointed with my colleagues, friends and family members who refuse to trust anything other than what is spewed at them from the TV. An article that helped me put it all in perspective was https://mises.org/library/isaiahs-job. Unfortunately, many of those closest to us are with the “masses”; we have to have faith that the “remnant” will find us 🙂

One of the options would be to sell you house in Calgary and buy some rural property outside of any city/town limits. That should give you more freedoms theoretically. I am not seeing any folks waking up. It was cool to chat with you guys in the Cafe last Wednesday.

Myliemom, I read the article you recommended. The link did not take me directly to it but I just searched on “Isaiahs Job”. It was a very interesting perspective. ONE: Is from 1930s – I think the masses believe everything is new and the past has nothing to teach us but it has everything to teach us. This kind of garbage has happened over and over again in human history. There is so much disbelief that the government’s agenda could be anything but benign. To the contrary we should all remain skeptics, And ALWAYS ask why. TWO: I think the remnant has found us I think. And vice versa.
ygrishin, most people don’t have that option to move. If wishes were fishes the well would be full, right? Also, I don’t want to give up. Not really in my nature.

I am so thankful for the remnant finding me. Feeling pretty overwhelmed by it all today. Trudeau and that deputy #$&@ of his are selling us to the WEF and Kenney is no different. I cannot believe that we are actually living the most horrific films we’ve ever seen. Where is Austin Powers? Klaus Schwab is the most evil villain I could imagine.

Canadians are a politically lazy people, we don’t just go along to get along, we demand that everyone else conform as well. These lockdowns and mask mandates will soon be followed by mandatory vaccination demands, an issue which is in fact a life or death one considering the experimental nature of the “vaccines” and the injuries and deaths which have occurred and will be occurring in the future.
I plan in defying such mandates though I hear the cost will be high (in Alberta up to $500,000 and jail time).
BTW: Klaus Schwab is the stunt double for another arch-villian, Ernst Stavro Blofeld of SPECTRE.

I really don’t think vaccines will be made mandatory, and I also don’t think those “covid passports” will go far or last long.
- Trudeau himself said that mandatory vaccines would be divisive and he doesn’t want that for Canada. (Yes, I was surprised to hear him say that too, and yes, I know he could change his mind, but it’s at least encouraging that he said this).
- Kenney last year changed the Alberta health act to specifically remove the option for the government to force vaccinations on the people. Yes, Canada could still force it, but Alberta now can not.
- Both Israel and NYC “vaccine passports” are only good for 30 or 60 days which means even those are not intended to be long term implementations.
- Biden has said they will not enforce vaccine passports, but will produce guidelines for the private sector if they want to use them. So if the radical left in the US isn’t going that route, then there just doesn’t seem to be much appetite for it.
- There’s a lot of push back against vaccine passports by strong governors in the states, the general populace in online polls, and even the media is split on it. Yes, there are certainly those headlines which say “vaccine passports are coming” but there are also those which say “vaccine passports are a non-starter”.
- And without government mandates on passports, any private company passports won’t last. If for example one airline requires vaccine passports, but others don’t, they’ll stop requiring them as soon as they realize they’re losing market share.
- Texas has vaccinated 14% of its population and eliminated the mask mandate over a month ago and their cases continue to decline. They are returning back to normal, and if it can happen there it can happen here.
So all of that gives me hope, and yes it’s easy for us to find evil and tyranny and insanity, we should also be looking for the hopeful signs that things are not as bad as they seem, and those signs are out there. So please everybody, be vigilant but don’t assume the worst. It will bring you to depression, and we don’t need that.

I’m surprised Trudeau made such a statement(1), it shows an awareness beyond the normal bacterial level he sits at.
I didn’t hear that Kenney removed that statute in the Health Code it that’s a very good thing he did because enforcing it would be political suicide.
Looks like Canada is again behaving in a retrograde fashion if what happened in Ontario today is any indication.
I’m looking at the legal aspects of pushing back and refusing any such order, Alberta has/had a statute on the books allowing forced vaccination.
This is a good site for knowing your legal rights and status of some of the cases going on w.r.t the pandemic lockdowns
Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms
In Alberta, for example, legislation already exists in the Alberta Public Health Act’s section 38(1)(c)
which purports to authorize the government to enter your home without a warrant during a declared
public health emergency, and vaccinate you and your family against your will. Alberta Health has
confirmed its view that section 38(1)(c) does provide government with the power to order mandatory
immunization or re-immunization for Albertans. The Alberta Government has indicated that they will
remove this section from the Act, and the Justice Centre will be carefully observing the Government’s
actions to ensure that it does.
I’m trying to remain positive and the statements you’ve made give me some hope as I was going to fight legally and physically not be become a Nuremberg 2.0 case study(ie experimental human subject #4535).
April 10, 2021 at 4:58 pm #4816
Looks like at least the mandatory vaccine side of your argument is wrong. With the recent lockdowns put out by AHS and Jason Kenney, Kenney has stated the lockdown will be lifted with enough people getting the Covid Vaccines. If that isn’t mandatory, then explain what it is. That’s strong arm tactics just like mafia and other criminals use. Do what we say or else! What about those that are working and have already been threatened with: you must mask or lose your job; you must vaccinate or lose your job; you cannot speak against Covid measures and narratives or lose your job; you must follow what we dictate or you will be fined or have your church taken over by cops with guns and security fencing, etc.?!!! Without using the word “mandatory” – but it doesn’t get more mandatory than the threats and the unjust and illegal actions that have been occurring across Canada in many different ways and examples.
April 10, 2021 at 5:54 pm #4823
Kenney is finished as Premier of Alberta in the next election, he’s shown no leadership and no spine when dealing with Ottawa on any issue, whether the carbon tax, pandemic or transfer payments. He’s turned out to be exactly what I feared when I voted for him to get rid of the Notley gang, another career Ottawa politician looking to round out his government pension.
The UCP has been nothing but a joke for Alberta, Trudeau and the Liberals have walked all over this province in terms of jurisdiction over many things including healthcare, instead we have someone who decides to enforce the wishes of Ottawa and tramples on our constitutional rights. All the while I don’t hear a word of protest from Kenney, instead he thinks getting the cops out there is a great idea and doesn’t bother to act like a champion of this province.
All he complains about is the government deficit and how we need more business in Alberta while at the same time shuttering what’s left here. He’s not a champion of this province, I keep thinking how Ralph Klein or Peter Lougheed might have acted under these circumstances and it certainly wouldn’t have been like Kenney.
Look at how some US governors like Kristy Noem of South Dakota have the courage to tell the medical mafia and clowns like Fauci to stuff it when they bring out their ideas for even tougher restrictions and lockdowns. In Canada what do we have, a female version of Fauci who is proposing even harsher measures and nobody at the provincial level dares to push back on it, this says a lot about the Canadian character and especially about the kind of leadership we have chosen.
Mandatory seems to be a variable statement depending on who uses it but the use of coercion, whether legal, economic or social is a form of force and it’s too easy for those in government to simply go along with it as the easiest path.
April 10, 2021 at 6:49 pm #4827
Wholeheartedly agree with all of what you said. We need Trudeau out, but who would be the right choice to replace him??? Not O’Toole or Singh – that will just be more of the same. We need Kenney out and Notley is worse. Who to bring in instead of all of these horrors? Absolutely wish Klein was here now!

There have been 3 non confidence votes against the Liberal government after the last “budget” was announced – if you can call it that. Each time the NDP leader has voted against an election. We need to force an election. Half of the seats the NDP have are from BC. If the NDP would just remove themselves from the equation we could get on with it. Trudeau is at the least incompetent. He has destroyed Canada’s reputation as intelligent, honorable, equality & freedom-loving people. The last election’s results should be questioned. Heavily. At the most he has become our crime-minister. He is doing things to our governmental system and our way of life only a dictator does. This has to end now! Wishing doesn’t make things happen – action does.

Until now I’ve been going maskless and just telling them that I have exemption. They now won’t let you in even if you claim exemption. I have resorted to wearing a bandanna to get in. It is amazing how often that bandanna falls down below my chin. That and I can breathe completely easy with it on. I think I could do a set of weights with it on but not cardio.
“I need to make some adjustments” is the first line I use. Then I ask them
“Even the pro-mask side says bandannas are useless so why did city council make them legal?”
“If the situation was as bad as they say, why would they let something 100% useless be allowed?”
They usually walk away at that point.
December 21, 2020 at 12:28 pm #1755
I feel a great deal of resentment at the fact that I can’t just walk into a store without worry like I have all my life unless I am complying with this ridiculous crap. I have mostly been avoiding going in stores at all. When I rarely have I have not worn a face covering. When I have gone into a store I usually time it for when not too many people are in the place. I have not been challenged yet for being mask-less and I am beyond caring if I get weird looks. People need to understand why we need to fight these rules. It’s so obvious!!

I have a mask exemption…and I am getting tired of being verbally attacked in grocery stores, medical offices, Star bucks, etc. from those who think it is their obligation to instruct me to put on a mask. I am starting to avoid going shopping for my family or going at odd hours. At times, I even put a bandana over my face…then cough unrelentingly….because of the numerous attacks from Calgarians who think it is ok to violate other people’s rights. Any advice for a mom who is trying to survive, maskless?

Curbside pickup for those days when you just cant face another “baaa-baaa wear your mask like a good sheepie”. But I am with you not wearing the mask. I applaud you. No one should have to!

Its becoming a vicious cycle, we want to support the financial well being of local businesses in our communities, but being forced to wear a mask etc are egregious violations of our personal rights as independent free human beings and societies. We are forced to endure the indignities of unwarranted unscientific measures in order to alleviate the economic burden being placed on said businesses by the same unwarranted unscientific measures. We MUST break the Cycle and RESTORE liberty, dignity and prosperity to our communities
April 1, 2021 at 3:03 pm #4286
Yes, it’s ironic. The last few years before the pandemic I was always harping on my family to “shop local” and only order online if you can’t get it locally, because I’m a small business owner myself and I’m tired of seeing local stores shut down because everybody’s buying from Amazon, but now I find myself buying even shampoo from Amazon because I don’t want to have to deal with the mask nazis at Walmart. It’s bizarre.

I also have an exemption and I use it at IKEA where they give you a wrist band at the door so the other staff don’t harass you, but no matter where I go (without a mask) I avoid eye contact with other customers because there’s always one that wants to say something and I hate that. A few weeks ago in Sobeys some old lady said “I guess you forgot your mask at home”. I ignored her and walked away but it’s made shopping so stressful and takes all the fun out of it.
I used to love going out and smiling and chatting with strangers and being friendly but now I put on a frown, avoid eye contact and generally try to make myself look like someone who’s in no mood to talk. I also leave the store as fast as possible which means I often forget to buy things I need. Sigh.
The most frustrating of the whole thing is knowing that masks are 100% pointless yet the narrative is that if you don’t wear one you’re “dangerous” to the public and you should be shunned and shamed. Regardless, I will not be shamed into wearing a face mask. I will stand up for my right to liberty, and to me liberty means I decide what I wear and what I don’t wear. Nobody can tell me to put a face mask on.

We should have our answers ready. Anybody got any good ideas? How about:
masker: “Guess you forgot your mask at home”
anti-masker: “No, I decided to take a stand against fear”
masker: “Where’s your mask?”
anti-masker: “Well, I put it on this morning but when my husband farted I realized it wasn’t offering me much protection”
masker: “Why are you not wearing a mask?”
anti-masker: “Because I believe in science”
masker: “You know, you’re supposed to be wearing a mask”
anti-masker: “Actually, I’m supposed to be living in a free country”
masker: “If you don’t put on a mask, I’m calling the police”
anti-masker: “If you think I’m so dangerous, shouldn’t you be running away? “

Does anyone know if there is a map that shows businesses that we can go shop at in Calgary that are implementing the resources from this website and are NOT enforcing masks? I’d love to know.
April 10, 2021 at 5:35 pm #4817
Don’t know of any in Calgary, but I go to all the grocery stores in Cochrane without a mask, finding almost 100% acceptance. Most clerks will engage in conversations, even coming up close beside me to talk. Most customers will do the same, and several state they wish they could go unmasked but don’t like the potential of confrontation. Only once did a senior of about 80 years of age make comment to me about not having a mask on. I responded “no, I don’t” and carried on. At many businesses in Cochrane, only a few clerks ask me if I want a mask (typically those ones are about 20 years of age). I say no thank you and carry on with my business. There have been places where I have left because they won’t serve me, such as MacDonald’s and Coffee Traders, but I have found the majority don’t even ask if they can provide you with a mask – they allow you in and conduct business with you. I’ve not tried Walmart since I refuse to shop there. Maybe one day I will just to browse about.
April 10, 2021 at 6:08 pm #4825
I’ve found the attitude of people outside the bigger cities is distinctly different, they aren’t as bent out of shape about covid and don’t buy into the fearmongering of the media. In Calgary our idiot of a mayor Nenshi decided masking needed to be a bylaw and made it so, without consultation when the covid numbers were not severe. He also wanted extraordinary powers of arrest and detention using not the police but the bylaw department!. He wanted to setup his own quarantine centers around the city and an official snitch line for people to rat out their neighbors for violating covid restrictions. At one point I thought he had gone full Soviet on us.
The sad thing is there are those people who wholeheartedly support even tighter restrictions up to an including covid detention camps if necessary for those refusing vaccinations, they don’t care about civil/personal rights and truly think the end justifies the means, their safety means you have no rights.

Thank you everyone who stands for freedom refusing to comply! I stand with you. In trying to avoid in-person shopping I have gotten very creative at online shopping – you actually can avoid Amazon and Walmart but this does not feel like I am doing enough anymore. Last time I went into the Dollarama about a month and half ago without a mask the security guard challenged me I said I have an exemption then ignored him, he eventually stopped following me. When I was paying for my stuff my card did not work and I had the thought that they were intentionally messing up the sale but she was probably just nervous and pushing the wrong buttons. I did get out of there with my goodies and felt somewhat triumphant as I evil eyed the security guard on my way out. The whole experience was surreal and definitely not enjoyable. Plus for almost a year the store has been playing propaganda on the intercom thanking patrons for keeping everyone safe. I want to change the channel on this sci-fi show. But the thing is we can’t. As surreal as it is, this is our reality! If we let it be… I think I’ll try again sans-masking it, I have been feeling increasingly cowardly that I have not for some time. It isn’t even that others disapprove or fear of confrontation. It’s resentment that my shopping time is ruined. But if we want our way of life back we have to take it back. People need to see each other’s faces again. We need to remember how things used to be. And I want to be a part of that! Look out Dollarama here I come!
April 11, 2021 at 12:02 pm #4852
what seems to work best for me, is if i avoid eye contact and quickly go in and out of stores
if anyone questions about no mask, i just say i have a nose problem and keep on going – so far have not had much static except from the bus driver who did not want to let me on the bus – i got his badge number (you are allowed to do that) and reported him
April 12, 2021 at 11:40 am #4868
I don’t go out anymore, not that I ever had an active social life to begin with, I’ve only seen 2 people face to face for lunch in the past 6 months. I get all my groceries online starting a month before the first lockdown last year and have become used to it. I hate the hassle to dealing with nosy busybodies minding your business and not their own in stores and I’ve never liked crowds to begin with.
Masks don’t figure strongly in my life because I don’t go out and I’m not employed at the moment so I don’t have to be in a workplace. However, I will refuse to comply with any vaccination order and that’s my greatest fear, not the lockdowns, not the masking but the use of force to violate my bodily integrity.
What worries me is that Trudeau has bragged that by June, Canada will have stockpiled 44 million doses of vaccine and Health Canada is recommending Quarterly booster shots! Some people who took the vaccines contracted covid despite being vaccinated and vaccine side effects are being hidden by the media.
What angers me the most is the constant propaganda campaign fearmongering people to comply and get their shots, the direction is turning more and more forceful and that’s my worry. It might turn into a “the ends justifies the means” scenario that the governments will use on the non-compliant, be ready for them to crackdown on protests to silence any dissent, they’ve done that in the UK and especially brutally in Holland.
April 23, 2021 at 3:16 pm #5104
Vaccine bullies who don’t realize that’s what they are doing. Guess they need to be taught. I’m up for that.
May 8, 2021 at 11:45 pm #5939
You maybe correct considering what happened at the Whistle Stop Cafe and the arrests these past few days, I’m hoping things don’t turn towards strongarm tactics but I suspect there will be instances where the enforcers are a little too eager to show everyone who’s boss.
Also I can see gov’t orgs like the AHS thinking it has immunity to legal consequences in violating people’s Charter Rights, something they’re going to learn the hard way in court when the reality of this scamdemic comes to light. Government types always think that they’ve been granted immunity to misconduct, especially in emergencies only to find out later that they can in fact be sued.
Things are turning around in the UK and people there are have actually managed to turn back some of the authoritarian excesses of their government. The same cannot be said in Canada, where most people are compliant sheep, ready to obey and do as their told, even to the point of having someone else do their thinking for them. But with the recent mass protests in Toronto and Montreal it seems even Liberal supporters have had enough, so there may be some hope after all.
All I can say is that Kenney is finished as a Premier here and the UCP had better be considering a replacement in their leadership or it’s over for them in the next election.
May 11, 2021 at 7:32 pm #6031
The only way to deal with bullies is stand your ground. It does not have to be physical. Is just confidence that you are in the right. The good news is that you are not alone in your beliefs and the evidence is tipping the scales. Hope is a powerful thing, we have to have it. I will not give it up.

i need a good reply to maskers who say “kovid is on saliva”
April 23, 2021 at 3:12 pm #5103
What sort of dufus says that? I would say ignore them if you can. If people were interested in the truth we would not be in this mess, but actually respiratory rna viruses are very small (100 nanometers) and will not be contained by “droplets” of saliva. Masks are not filters for these particles they are too small. These viruses are airbourne. Those idiotic blue surgical masks show penetration levels of approximately 55–85% and 70–90% at flow rates of 30 and 100 liters/minute, respectively, for 300 nm particles as per study Filtration Performance of FDA-Cleared Surgical Masks – Rengasamy, Samy etal. 2009. Which means those memes circulating around picturing a chain link fence GATE with no fence are quite apt. I have also heard the expression “Wearing a mask to protect your self from kovid is like expecting a chain link fence to stop the rain.”
BTW, I went to Dollarama and it was freakin’ great! Next time maybe I’ll remember everything I went in there for…
April 30, 2021 at 1:02 pm #5693bananasParticipant
A few examples from my neck of the woods (SW Edmonton):
– I’ve been wearing a cotton bandana, in such a way that air gets in from underneath, and have had no issues. Went to the public library shortly after provincial gov’t made masks mandatory (on top of already existing city bylaw), and the librarian stated bandanas were not acceptable and demanded I wear a disposable mask she was prepared to give me. She was the same librarian who witnessed me use the library before and never made a peep about bandanas. I guess she felt empowered then. They also chase after you with hand sanitizer fanatically. Well, does not matter anymore because apparently libraries are super spreaders and must be shut down.
– Active Physio Works at Magrath, in addition to all of the now standard covid “precautions” (questionnaire, thermometer gun to your head, sanitize hands), now hands out a mask from their supply and demand you wear it. Does not matter if you are already wearing a mask – not good enough for them. For this reason I switched to a different physio place which is less fanatical.
– I went to a community clinic this week for a minor procedure. Had to have a mask on. Me laying on the table on my stomach, face to the side, mask all askew – medical personnel did not care in the least. I got a feeling they treat these “precautions” as unnecessary theater but have to follow through lest AHS reprimands them.
P.S. Is it safe to post names of businesses that are not covid zealots on here? I would not want covid Karens descend on these last specks of humanity. I’m new to the site and wish I’d discovered it earlier.
April 30, 2021 at 1:13 pm #5696
I live in Terwillegar. Here are a list of the stores you can go constantly for essentials without wearing anything:
Esso at 23 ave and Rabbit Hill Road
Petro Canada on 23 Ave by Rabbit Hill Road
Freson Bros on Rabbit Hill Road
Safeway in Windemere
SW Edmonton has a very high compliance rate compared to other areas of the city, but they are compliant because they are afraid of confrontation, which means if you choose not to comply they don’t bother confronting you. It’s peculiar how things work.
May 6, 2021 at 5:34 pm #5891
Next time I go to a store without a mask on I am wearing my new COVID 1984 T-shirt!
May 6, 2021 at 8:27 pm #5897
I live in Woodlands/Woodbine and the Safeway and Shoppers Drug Mart in the Woodbine Square don’t hassle me about not wearing a mask. Also in Woodlands is the Circle K and beside that, the Liquor Store that don’t care if you aren’t wearing a mask.
I don’t go to the mall anymore as I can’t stand the hassle and seeing people lining up outside stores. Has anyone been to SouthCentre with success?
July 9, 2021 at 9:16 pm #6514
So I did what I said I was going to do the weekend before the mask bylaw was lifted in Alberta. I wore my COVID 1984 T-shirt without a mask in the Dollarama. No one said a thing. Maybe it’s an attitude…. It felt good I can tell you that. I was tired of not being openly defiant of the massive injustice. I am happy that the bylaw has been lifted. But the fact that people have been brainwashed is sadly evident. I still see so many people even outside wearing a mask. And more sadly, my workplace has said they are not removing the mask restriction for now. When I heard this news I thought I was going to lose my mind. I had to go outside before I wrecked something. I am still wearing my face shield in the office except when behind my plexiglass fish bowl. This is all so very wrong. I have come to realize in the last week that there is no going back to normal after this and also that I have been kidding myself along with everyone else that it would. I’m thinking that the last time I did not feel trapped in the Twilight Zone was when I went to the Dollarama with my COVID 1984 shirt. I’m going to do more of that. This is my new normal, world. And I’ll be damned if I’ll back down.

In a video Chris Schaefer did on masks, he showed the CO2 levels (using a meter) in masks and even in shields the %age of CO2 gets quite high.

They also have done tests for the amount of bacteria in these masks after only a few hours of use and it’s frightening. Yet we have lots of sheep willing to impair their own health on command. So you’re slowly suffocating yourself or giving yourself the possibility of a respiratory infection all based on the fearmongering of the health authorities and the government.
That quack Dr.Fauci even at one point suggested double or triple masking! Such is the insanity of the health profession, yet they’ll censor anyone speaking out against this scamdemic.

There is so much wrong information about how masks are not harmful to wear. Much of the information that proves they are harmful has been quietly (or not so quietly) shoved to the side in favor of this idiotic mask-wearing. People that are still wearing need to be taught which is so ridiculous since it is instinctual in anyone with a brain not to suffocate yourself. Where is this video Chris Schaefer put out? I have a file on my computer filled with mp4 videos – I keep collecting on a USB as well because censorship is so rampant.

Here is Chris’s video on testing different masks https://rumble.com/ve57c5-respirator-specialist-from-canada-proves-masks-for-coronavirus-cause-harm.html
Check at 8:52 for the part about shields.

I went to vote for anti-lockdown PPC candidate. Was most regrettable action I have ever taken. Fully intended to be in and out wearing no mask. Went early before work and waited for the doors to open. Watched the security guard show up. Watched the sheeple show up with their masks on outside. I was first in line. Throughout this whole thing I have not put one of those filthy little blue things on my face. There was a great deal of angry swearing on my part (which I felt mildly bad about afterwards) but they forced me into wearing one of their face diapers for 10 minutes. Longest 10 minutes EVER. They were not going to let me vote even after I told them I had an exemption. A wave of disgust and rage filled me for myself, the situation and everyone around me. The twit who harassed me into wearing kept thanking me profusely and I told him to F-off. I voted and threw it at the little bastard behind the booth plexiglass and walked out of the gym once my ballot was in. I was madder than I think I have ever been. I was given a wide berth by the sheeple on the way out. Why did I go? I had to see if they were going to include the PPC candidate on the ballot as I had heard happened in some places in Canada during advance polls they were omitting. He was on the ballot. Not really sure how I feel about this experience. I wish I had not gone. Voting has always been a positive experience for me, now I have been robbed of that. Plus, I am pretty sure this election was rigged. Was it all for nothing? I guess maybe I had to see it to believe it how far down the rabbit-hole Canada is. I wonder did anyone else have this happen to them?

Sorry to hear that you had such difficulties in getting to vote and were forced to wear a mask. Me & my friends (several) went to vote separately, and none of us had to wear masks. One was asked to use sanitizer. Nobody said anything at all to me or all the others, except which table to go to, the instructions to ensure the ballot was filled in correctly, & the box to put the ballot in after completion.
The returning officer made it very clear to us that it was illegal to prevent anyone from voting, with or without masks, and they must have made this clear to the polling station volunteers too.
Funny thing though, when I got to my vehicle after voting without any hiccups, on mainstream media radio, it was announced that people would have to mask in order to vote. You obviously got a polling station that went against the law & went along with MSM propaganda.
Too bad you didn’t have documents to present validating that what the polling station was doing was illegal. All of us will have to be prepared for every situation, and we will all have to stand our ground and have documents proving we are in the right and lawful side of things. Anywhere we go, we should try to have larger groups of people to educate others on the laws.
Mandates are not laws.

I was asked to sign a contact tracing form; I declined and was told that was absolutely fine. I was asked to wear a mask; I declined and was told that was fine too. My problem is when I went to a employee to fill out my registration form, he filled it out for me but missed a letter in my name. I walked over to the polling booth, decided to review the form, discovered the error and brought it back to him. He said he would have to fill out another form to correct the error. He handed me the new form, and another employee asked me to review it. I did, said it was fine and walked over to the polling booth. However, when I glanced over it again I noticed that this time instead of an 8 in my postal code, the man had written an S. I found this error, based on how it was written on the page, to be quite subtle and difficult to detect. At that point I was becoming somewhat suspicious since this form was given to me as a result of a prior error, and so you would think that more care would be given to ensure its accuracy, as well as the fact that he written the postal code correctly on the first form. Knowing that postal codes never end in letters and that practically everyone is aware of that, as well as how clear my postal code is displayed on my identification, at that point I was under the impression that this man may have purposely included these errors in my registration. I further speculate, based on these details the general feeling of the interaction, that his actions may have been due to my refusal to comply with the Health Orders. I know that one individual’s vote is practically insignificant in an election, and so I am not alleging voter fraud. What bothers me is the prospect that this man may have attempted to invalidate my vote under the premise that my personal health decisions ought to preclude me from engaging in our democracy. I’ll never be sure.

The polling station was a school so maybe that made a difference. Maybe I gave in too easy but I was going to be late for work. Even if I had papers that polling station would have been hostile and I regret not making more time for standing my ground. Every single vote should count – it is our right to be heard! I feel dirty about the whole experience. Sounds like some polling reps were passive-aggressive which is to me even more insidious. I think the division goes deep and may never be reconciled between those who have been fooled and those who are not. I fear what it will take to get people to wake up.
