Politicians that pushed discriminatory vaccine mandates are slowly being brought to justice.
The top doctor in British Columbia has been named in a lawsuit launched by public service workers over the province’s vaccine mandates.
The lawsuit, filed in the Supreme Court of BC, names Dr. Bonnie Henry and the Province of British Columbia as defendants.
The action was formally filed in late October, and was officially announced Wednesday via a press release on the BC Public Service Employees for Freedom (BCPSEF) website.
The plaintiff has filed this action because the Province’s COVID-19 employee vaccine mandate, enacted by executive order of the provincial Cabinet, was contrary to public service employees’ Charter rights and violated their medical privacy and bodily autonomy.
Although the action has been launched by one plaintiff, it is being brought on behalf of all unionized employees of the BC Public Service harmed by the Province’s vaccine mandate.
As such, it has the potential to assert the rights of tens of thousands of unionized public servants in British Columbia.
The lawsuit alleges that Dr. Henry relied on bad data to impose vaccine mandates, and that the mandates violated the Canadian Charter.
Dr. Henry is facing pressure from the BC Conservative Party to relinquish her role as the province’s top doctor, with nearly 20,000 people signing a petition to have her terminated.
