A protest being held by Vaccine Choice Canada will be taking place Tuesday morning at Queen's Park to fight against mandatory vaccinations. The group will be joined by five Ontario moms with kids in the school system, who collectively believe that mandatory vaccinations are unconstitutional. Ontario vaccine laws require all students in public schools to have received vaccinations against a certain list of diseases unless they have applied for and received a formal exemption. Vaccine Choice Canada has launched a lawsuit in the Superior Court of Ontario, which challenges the Immunization of School Pupils Act, alleging it has no constitutional validity, according to their news release. They also state in the release that the legislation is excessively harsh and severe. One of the reasons they believe that mandatory vaccination is unconstitutional is because it "violates their right to freedom of conscience, belief, religion, and thought."Other reasons are that the legislation could violate children's rights to education, along with intervening and interfering with the parent-child relationship, which is all protected under the constitution. Furthermore, they allege that the Immunization of School Pupils Act breaches a person’s rights to informed medical consent and choice.

They must also sign a statement of conscience or religious belief, according to CP24. As of 2017, however, the parents must attend an information session before obtaining a non-medical exemption.\nIf parents do not comply to these rules regarding vaccination exemption, their children can be suspended from school, according to Global News.\nThe province has not yet filed a statement of defense against the action filed by Vaccine Choice Canada, CTV News reports.\nHowever, a spokesperson for Health Minister Christine Elliott told Global that, “The Ministry of Health is continually evaluating the best available evidence to improve the uptake of vaccines, reduce risk of disease outbreaks and achieve better health for all Ontarians.”\nThere are stories everywhere.
