Minister’s Statement on Protests at Hospitals

NOTE: The following is a statement from Health and Wellness Minister Michelle Thompson

I am aware of the protests expected to take place at hospitals today, here and across the country. Hospitals are not the place for anti-vaccination protests.

Our physicians, nurses and health-care staff have worked throughout the pandemic to care for our loved ones and protect our communities. They all deserve to come to work safely and without harassment. Those choosing to protest outside hospitals are putting at risk the delivery of health care to the people who need it.

Peaceful protest is, of course, a right, but it should be done at an appropriate location, not at our health-care facilities.
