Canadian Nurse Faces Disciplinary Hearing For Social Media Posts Criticizing Covid Mandates

If you’re tired of censorship and dystopian threats against civil liberties, subscribe to Reclaim The Net. In a striking case that brings free speech to the forefront, Saskatchewan nurse Leah McInnes has found herself on the brink of a disciplinary hearing. She expressed her reservations about COVID vaccines and mandates on social media platforms, opening up a debate on her right to voice opinions on such critical issues. Her statements landed her in hot water with the College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS), which is accusing her of engaging in professional misconduct. The alleged misconduct, as claimed by CRNS, is rooted in her involvement in protests against vaccine mandates and vaccine passports during the COVID-19 pandemic. McInnes is presently involved in a four-day tribunal hearing in Regina, which started yesterday. The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), arguing in her defense, has asserted that she has the right to express her views on vaccine mandates, vaccine passports, and related issues like freedom of choice and medical privacy. Interestingly, McInnes’ opinions on COVID shots and mandates were specifically aimed at Saskatchewan’s vaccine policies. Saskatchewan health officials, it should be noted, did not particularly enforce vaccine mandates for healthcare workers but heavily advocated for people to receive the shots. However, CRNS claimed McInnes’s public articulation amounted to disinformation and misinformation and could mislead the public, alleging a misuse of her power as a nurse. The JCCF, however, pointed out the regular references to the government’s vaccine policies as “mandates” by media…Canadian Nurse Faces Disciplinary Hearing For Social Media Posts Criticizing Covid Mandates
