In response to the unprecedented mass violations of Canadian’s Charter Rights from government across the country in response to the COVID19 pandemic, a group of current and former elected representatives have come together to form the End the Lockdowns National Caucus.

The caucus is a non-partisan group seeking to provide formal challenges to current COVID19 policies with a specific emphasis on ending governments use of province-wide lockdowns and stay-at-home orders. 

All members of the caucus, which includes Randy Hillier – MPP, Maxime Bernier – PPC Party Leader, Derek Sloan – MP, Darryl Herlick – Perth East Councillor, and Steve VanLeeuwen – Centre Wellington Councillor, signed the following statement as a means of establishing the caucus. The statement reads as follows:

“We are current and former elected representatives from municipal, provincial, and federal levels of government across Canada, unified in pursuit of the truth, and resolved to ensure there is open, honest, and public debate regarding the COVID-19 government response.

After careful examination and scrutiny of mitigation measures undertaken by all levels of government, it is now evident that the lockdowns cause more harm than the virus and must be brought to an end.

We devote our energy and efforts to the just and compassionate objective of reopening our businesses, schools, places of worship, recreational facilities, along with the full resumption and expansion of efficient medical services. We desire to restore dignity and respect for all Canadians by safeguarding our representative democracy and its institutions, defending our Constitution, personal freedoms and responsibilities, whilst implementing focused protection for the most vulnerable.

We hereby voluntarily sign this agreement on the 2nd day of February, 2021.”

The caucus is open to all members, at any level, of representative government and others are encouraged to contact the caucus for more information.
