To the current Minister of Transport for Canada and the Queen.
On 3rd November of last year, I wrote to you asking several questions about both The Constitution Act of 1982 and the repeal of that act; the criminal code re coercion into taking an unproven, not yet tested for long term effects toxic jab.
I am not surprised that I have not heard from you as silence is your best defense for illegal and irresponsible actions against a selective portion of the transportation industry.
Since your colleague the Minister of Labour is coming to your rescue with some overreaching regulations under Part 11 of the Labour Act, again aimed at specific targets within the federal jurisdiction but excluding some 200,00 federal employees according to the deputy PM,
“Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland Wednesday detailed a vaccination program for federal employees exempting over 200,000 workers without mandating immunization proof.” CANADIAN NEWS Oct 7, 2021
I wrote to him on 4th January asking for clarification, and no I haven’t heard from him either.
But to the situation in which your federal ministry of transport now find itself regarding transportation and the supply chain.
For you information I have been involved with transportation sine 1973 in one form or another – mostly as an over the road long haul driver travelling between Canada and the USA. I am acutely aware of the importance of moving products of all kinds to their destination safely and on time. One of the main reasons I stopped was the increasing regulations making it very hard to conform to this ideal of safety and on time. Petty regulations and high fines were a reality I had no inclination to encounter.
Crossing the border has never been easy with all the paper work involved, but now you are demanding that all drivers be fully vaccinated or self-isolate between trips. Perhaps you are not aware that most drivers are alone in their cabs for 20 hours a day, and only leave their cabs for necessary breaks and fuel. Sitting a home for 10 days at the end of each trip not only reduces the movement of goods but also makes driving unaffordable. Each 5 day trip would require 10 days of sitting at home !!! Perhaps you are not aware that there is already a shortage of drivers without you making 25% of those left sitting at home for no reasons other than sheer bloody mindedness!
But the overriding aspect that the CBC finally acknowledged today that this Freedom Convoy of truckers heading your way, is not about icy roads, (whoever heard of such nonsense – icy roads are a fact of Canadian winter) but about something that used to be really important to Canadians. It is called Freedom. This is not a word used in Ottawa anymore because your leader only believes in freedom for corporate profiteering.
I heard today that you claimed the truckers had been given plenty of warning about this yet another illegal mandate of yours so the fault lies with them and not you. How can you sleep at night with this attitude? Who gave you the right to demand that anyone should hand over control of their body to you are anyone else?
Your government will, I am sure, blame everyone but yourselves when the crunch comes and the grocery stores are almost empty, gas shortages are everyday events and unemployment skyrockets. You will have no answers because you are bereft of ideas that do not originate with your heroes the Economic Forum, Fauci, Pfizer and Gates.
You have bought this upon yourself, and I feel no sympathy with anyone but the unwitting Canadians who were foolish enough to believe the Emperor’s new clothes scam.
Enjoy the convoy when it arrives and hopefully you will have the courage to meet with them.
One thought on “Open letter to Omar Alghabra”
Hello from the UK
Many thanks for this post. Excellent letter! I wrote my own posts in support. I am very angry to see Canadians so abused by Trudeau etc. I am not PC.
