LifeSiteNews reported that faculty members at the University of Waterloo (UW) in Ontario, Canada were responsible for the endeavor. It stemmed from an open letter sent to all faculty, staff members and students on the entire campus in September 2021. Initially having only 32 signatories, the number of people who affixed their names to the open letter grew to 155.
“Any mandates involving vaccination, declaration of vaccination status and testing violate all employment contracts that were concluded, as well as all offers of admission that were accepted before the mandates were imposed. The rights infringed upon include those enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms – the highest law of the land. Thus, the mandates are unlawful and invalid,” said the open letter.
A subsequent letter sent to UW’s Board of Governors and school Senate in March pointed out that the COVID-19 vaccine mandate imposed by UW President Vivek Goel “may have been significantly influenced by his membership in the federal COVID-19 Immunity Task Force.” Goel, who assumed the leadership of UW in July 2021, had also served as the founding president and CEO of Public Health Ontario.
The UW president’s membership in Ottawa’s COVID-19 Immunity Task Force violated university policy with regard to conflicts of interest, the letter argued.
Only one document in the university’s archives mentioned Goel’s link to the task force. It did not include a statement from the UW president saying that his association with the entity “could affect, or could be perceived to affect, the decisions he would make.” The March letter explained that university policy “requires proactive disclosure of conflicts and potential conflicts, but Goel failed to do this.”
UW professors speak out against Goel’s vaccine mandate
Several UW faculty members spoke out against Goel’s vaccine mandate, sharing their thoughts on the matter to LifeSiteNews.
Applied mathematics professor Edward Vrscay, a signatory of the September 2021 open letter, said the university’s handling of COVID-19 shows that it is more concerned with compliance rather than public health. Incidentally, Vrscay’s tenure of more than 35 years at UW is threatened due to his non-compliance with the university’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. (Related: Canadian professor fired for refusing to get injected with covid vaccine.)
He quoted a March 23 statement Goel gave to the Waterloo Region Record, in which he said the success of the vaccine mandate is measured “in the high level of compliance” among the university population instead of the reduction of COVID-19 cases since the mandate’s introduction.
Philosophy and cognitive science professor John Turri, meanwhile, scrutinized UW’s COVID-19 case data. He pointed out that over a period of eight months, the vaccine mandate is only “associated [with] one fewer positive COVID-19 test on campus every two months.” This, Turri pointed out, is a number “not meaningfully different than zero.”
The philosophy and cognitive science professor later responded to the UW president’s comments about his initial observation: “Goel shockingly implies that compliance itself was the goal; high compliance shows that the policy succeeded. This contradicts the requirement’s stated objective [of reducing the spread of COVID-19].”
Vrscay ultimately remarked that the vaccine mandate espoused by Goel is but a symptom of a larger cultural shift occurring at universities across Canada.
“In a sense, it is even deeper than just an institution where you are not free to say what you want. It filters down into everything, into a ‘censorship’ if you will. This is not just about vaccination. This is a spiritual war, [and it’s] happening for a reason: To show how corrupt every man-made institution is.”

Red Power Ranger Actor Charged in Connection with COVID Relief Fraud Scheme
An actor who played one of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” was charged over his alleged involvement in a scheme to fraudulently obtain federal COVID-19 relief money. Actor Jason Lawrence Geiger, 47, played the red ranger in multiple seasons of the 90’s television series.
Geiger, whose stage name is Austin St. John, was one of 19 people charged in the scheme. The accused individuals received at least 16 fraudulent loans totaling $3.5 million, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas.
The indictment, which was returned by a federal grand jury on May 12, 2022, charges the defendants with conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, a group led by Michael Hill and Andrew Moran is alleged to have executed a scheme to defraud lenders and the Small Business Administration’s (SBA’s) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
Geiger, the former Red Power Ranger, was allegedly part of the network.
“Hill is alleged to have recruited co-conspirators to use an existing business or create a business to submit applications to obtain PPP funding. Once enlisted, Moran is alleged to have assisted his co-conspirators with the application paperwork, including fabricating supporting documentation and submitting the application through the online portals,” prosecutors said.
“On the applications, the defendants are alleged to have misrepresented material information such as the true nature of their business, the number of employees, and the amount of payroll. Based on these material misrepresentations, the SBA and other financial institutions approved and issued loans to the defendants.”
The loans were provided as part of the federal government’s massive $349 billion federal CARES Act. Funding was supposed to go to businesses who either lost money or were forced to close as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns, but the group led by Moran and Hill pocketed the cash for themselves.
In some instances, those accused sent the money to Jonathan Spencer, 33, to invest in foreign exchange markets, prosecutors said.
Geiger was arrested Tuesday and remains behind bars until a court hearing in Plano on Monday. He has pleaded not guilty to a single count against him.
According to The New York Post, the former “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” actor plans to “vigorously defend himself against this allegation.”
INSANITY: Biden Deboards Plane in South Korea All Alone with Mask On – Sees People and Takes Off His Mask
There is so much about this sequence that is just plain insane.
Joe Biden arrived in South Korea and when deboarding the plane alone, he is wearing a black mask. Once he goes down the stairs and steps on the ground, he takes off his mask as he met by the leaders in Korea.

What is wrong with this picture?
For one, Joe Biden pretending to be the elected President of the United States is wrong. All Americans know that there is no way Joe Biden earned 81 million votes in the 2020 Election. The guy couldn’t get 10 people at his rallies.
And secondly, Biden wearing a mask outdoors with no one near him is a joke. The mask provides no protection to him or anyone else in this picture.
Thirdly, after Biden sees his hosts, Biden takes off the mask. No one there is wearing the mask. If it was necessary for Biden to wear the mask down the stairs, it would have been necessary to wear it around others, but instead, Biden takes it off.
“Where Do I Get My Reputation Back?” – President Trump Responds to Hillary’s Russia Collusion Sham that Defamed Him for Years
On Friday we heard testimony from her own Campaign Manager that Hillary Clinton encouraged the fake news story that candidate and President Trump was a puppet of Russian President Putin. President Trump asks how does he ever get his reputation back?
Hillary’s Campaign Manager swore under oath on Friday that Hillary was behind the Russia collusion lies about President Trump.
Mook shared that Hillary knew about it and approved it.
Hillary Clinton called President Trump a puppet of Russian President Putin. Behind the scenes, we now know that she was working on lies to tie candidate Trump to Putin. It was all made up. Hillary was playing chicken with Russia risking a nuclear war.
President Trump shared on FOX News about this revelation and how his reputation was so terribly damaged by Hillary’s lies.
Former President Donald Trump reacted to the bombshell testimony out of the trial of Michael Sussmann that Hillary Clinton herself approved the dissemination of false information alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank to the media.
Trump told Fox News Digital that the entire Russia investigation is “one of the greatest political scandals in history,” and that he will “never” get his “reputation fully back.”
Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook on Friday testified as part of the first criminal trial out of Special Counsel John Durham’s years-long investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, saying Clinton approved and “agreed” to share the discredited data with the media.
FOX News won’t have President Trump on their regular news shows because they don’t want him sharing the truth about the stolen 2020 Election and the attacks he endured while in the White House all based on lies from the left and their RINO accomplices.
Americans know the truth and have known it for years.
