Sexual assaults alleged @ a federal quarantine hotel and at home by a PHAC trained screening officer

Sexual assaults alleged @ a federal quarantine hotel and at home by a PHAC trained screening officer

OTTAWA, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  February 24, 2021  (LSN)  The Hon. Michelle Rempel Garner, Conservative Shadow Minister for Health, Shannon Stubbs, Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety, Jag Sahota, Conservative Shadow Minister for the Status of Women, and Richard Martel, Conservative Quebec Political Lieutenant, issued a statement following reports of women being sexually assaulted both in federal quarantine hotels and during their at-home mandated isolation:

We are deeply angered to hear reports of sexual violence are happening during federally mandated quarantines by those supposed to be protecting public health. The federal government has a duty to protect everyone in their quarantine facilities and those who are trying to follow federal regulations while at home. The Liberal government needs to tell Canadians what action they are taking to fix this public safety and security concern.

“The responsibility for the conduct of those overseeing the facilities and enforcing the rules lies with the Trudeau Liberals. It is unthinkable that the federal government is mandating women into unsafe isolation scenarios that leave them vulnerable without the assurances they need to feel protected.

“The very least that Canadians can expect is to be safe, particularly in the presence of federal representatives and while in federal facilities. These violations are unconscionable.

“The Liberal government must take action now. We call for the Liberals to suspend the hotel quarantine requirement until they have put measures in place to ensure the safety of Canadians and institute a system for verifying at-home quarantine that doesn’t involve security agents who have not been properly vetted. During this necessary pause, the federal government should continue with on-arrival testing and the 14-day at-home quarantine for all international travelers to protect the public health of Canadians
