If you object to vaccinating your child, you’ll have to take classes on vaccines – if you are an Ontario resident.
This in light of a rash of anti-vaxx parents pushing against immunizations across the country – and a recent case in Alberta where a couple is facing jail time after their unvaccinated child died of meningitis.
So the Ontario government’s new plan is about to take action and force those who refuse to vaccinate their kids to take health classes first.
Ontario law says parents can be fined up to $1000 if they don’t immunize their kids. An exemption can be granted however, if they file “a statement of conscience or religious belief with the proper medical officer of health.”
Now, what do you think: Would you like to see legislation passed in Manitoba that would force those against vaccinations to educate themselves further in order to get an exemption?
And what about taking it one step further as they have in Australia? Should we also implement the Australian “no jab, no pay” system, which refuses child-care benefits to parents who don’t vaccinate their children. The Australian government finds early results are showing that it has worked.
