Sioux Lookout residents Michael Sweeney and Andrea Romyn took to the streets in downtown Sioux Lookout on Nov. 26 to protest COVID-19 proof of vaccination public health measures and workplace COVID-19 vaccination policies on Nov. 26.
Sweeney said, “It’s about the vaccination passes themselves which further segregation.”
“How are people okay with segregation, with other people dictating that you need to be forced to take something against your own will? And people have the audacity to turn around and tell you, you have the choice. What choice did I have, the choice to loss my job, or to continue on with life, that’s not a choice,” he stated.
“This is not a health and safety issue, it’s about compliance,” Romyn said, adding, “I’ve spoken to a few people that said they had no choice, because it’s between livelihood, feeding your family and kids, paying for your mortgage, or a job, that’s not a choice, it’s coercion.”
“Now they’re vaccinating the little kids, which breaks my heart,” Romyn added.
