Twenty-two years ago, I migrated to this wonderful country looking for a place filled with opportunities and away from corruption and social injustice. I’m entirely grateful to my country Canada where I’ve been able to build a beautiful life!
In the previous 20 years before this planned agenda started to unfold, I never imagined that I would have to put myself in the position of explaining my rights to a customs officer so I would be allowed to enter my homeland freely and without delays. What I experienced this past Sunday, August 14, was an intense and gratifying moment I will never forget.
Thanks to your work and the resources you published, I was able to pass without delay or hindrance UNJABBED, UN-MASKED, NO ARRIVECAN, NO TESTS, NO QUARANTINE AND NO TICKETS!!!
I want to thank you for all the wonderful work you do and the help you are providing to all of us! Knowledge is power! We all have to speak up to educate those who don’t know, so we can all be free.
I feel responsible for sharing my experience with others travelling outside Canada and returning home soon. I thought that the best possible way would be to share my story and the footage with you so more can benefit from what I’ve learned.
Feel free to use these materials in the best way you consider appropriate to educate as many people as possible.
I’m not looking for recognition or a pat on the back. All I want is to see more people around me confident enough to stand for their rights.
Due to my work I’ve had to travel to Europe twice in the last six months. During my first trip, I was able to leave the country two days before the travel ban for the “Unvaccinated” took effect. When I returned, I had to cancel my last flight from Montreal to Halifax, where I live. I had to rent a car and drive 12 hours straight to make it home after an Air Canada operative told me: “You’re unvaccinated!?! There is no way you will be boarding that flight.”
I resisted all the way home from Europe without having to install the ArriveCan App. Still, when I faced the Customs Officer, she made me fill out a paper with all my information and told me that I had to get a test, quarantine and do the self-test eight days after my arrival. To top off the entire experience, the RCMP showed up at my door three days later to verify that I was following procedure! I felt like a dirty criminal and dreaded the day I had to travel again.
Two weeks ago, I was able to return to Europe, but I didn’t want to relive that experience again. So I discussed with my wife that I would stand up for my rights this time and follow the consequences, even if that meant getting an unlawful ticket to fight in court. We started researching and found videos of other brave Canadians standing up for their rights. Then she sent me the Domestic/International Travel Notice of Liability you published, which made me feel empowered. I was ready to go all the way and issue NOLs to anyone that stood in my way! Luckily, it wasn’t necessary because the information in that document gave me the knowledge to communicate what I wanted without things escalating.
By seeing other people’s experiences and reading about my rights, I first realized that I needed to avoid getting denied boarding the plane for not having the App installed. When reading the App description in the App Store, I noticed that it clearly states: “Travellers with a right to enter Canada, such as Canadian citizens, Canadian permanent residents and persons registered under the Indian Act, will not be denied boarding of their flight or entry to Canada if they do not use ArriveCAN, but may be required to test on day 1 and day 8, quarantine for 14 days, and face fines.”
So I showed this description at all the ArriveCan Checkpoints set by the Airline before boarding all my flights. In addition, I told the airline operatives that the denial of me boarding the plane would violate my civil rights and freedoms as a Canadian Citizen and reassured them that I would be dealing with the consequences for not following this illegal “mandate” when I arrived in Canada.
Second and more importantly, I needed to hold on to my Passport at the customs booth to have the upper hand. That way, I could walk out of the airport without complying with anything and without a ticket. So, I wrote a 2-minute speech that I practiced during my return flight home. With those words, I intended to educate the officer, avoid her taking things personally and state respectfully and firmly that she had no right to share my Passport or information with any health official. All this before she asked me any questions.
The attached video shows how the interaction went and how after I finished what I had to say, the officer stuck to the customs questions and skipped any health Canada-related matters. After verifying in the system that I had no red flags in my Passport, she welcomed me to Canada and directed me to the exit door.
We all need to start speaking up. But we also need to remember that this war we are currently fighting is not against those enforcing these illegal mandates. If we allow things to get personal, we will lose. That only creates more division and hate. Most people want to do good; they just don’t know better. We need to educate them and demonstrate that we are confident enough to claim what’s solely ours. Our rights and our freedoms!
