After Reports Of Women Being Sexually Assaulted

Conservatives Call On Liberal Government To Suspend Quarantine Hotels

NORTHERN ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  February 24, 2021  (LSN)    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.”

Following reports of women being sexually assaulted after being forced by the government into quarantine hotels, and women being sexually assaulted after being forced into in-home isolation by the government, the Conservatives are calling for a suspension of the quarantine hotel requirement.

Here is the statement issued by Conservative Health Critic Michelle Rempel Garner, Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety Shannon Stubbs, Conservative Shadow Minister for the Status of Women Jag Sahota:

“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. Yet, 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.”

Rather than a pause on the quarantine hotels, they should be ended entirely.

We have seen repeated abuses of government power and massive government overreach, clearly violating the individual rights and freedoms of Canadians.

This must end.

Individuals must be allowed to take their own level of risk, and the government must stop abusing their power and putting people at risk through this unacceptable deprivation of freedom.
