Some Ontario towns won’t let couples get a marriage license without a vaccine passport
In Oakville, Ontario in Canada, engaged couples will have to show a vaccine passport to attend a meeting for a marriage license. The only way around the requirement is to get married in a different town.
“Appointments for marriage licenses and ceremonies that have already been booked prior to September 22 will not require proof of full vaccination,” the city website says. “…however, any new appointments for marriage licences and ceremonies will be required. Ceremonies will be held inside town hall as of November 4, 2021.”
A marriage license is a requirement to be recognized as legally married in Canada. In Oakville, a marriage license cannot be obtained online.
“You must schedule an appointment to receive your marriage licence,” the city’s website says. “To be eligible for an appointment, please ensure that the intended date of your marriage is finalized and you have an officiant that has agreed to perform the marriage.”
Additionally, a couple might not get married if they do not pass a screening at the city’s building.
“When you arrive at Town Hall for your scheduled appointment, you will be required to complete a COVID-19 self-assessment,” the city said. “If you do not successfully meet the screening criteria, you will not be allowed to enter the building and your appointment will be canceled.”
The city’s requirement for proof of vaccination for marriages is in line with the vaccination mandate implemented in Ontario last month. link
Supermarkets in German state of Hesse can now block entry to the unvaccinated
The new Covid health pass entry rules announced by the central state of Hesse have upped the pressure on the unvaccinated by allowing all shops to implement the so-called 2G rule at their doors.
The 2G rule refers to public places being given the option to allow entry only to vaccinated (geimpft in German) or people who’ve recovered from Covid (genesen). and has so far been allowed in half of Germany’s states for certain public places like bars, restaurants, nightclubs and cinemas.
The government in Hesse said that it had taken the decision to go a step further and allow shops to bar entry to the unvaccinated “at the request of the sector”.
Implementing 2G rules allows shops to drop mask-wearing and social distancing rules.
“We expect that this option will only be used on some days and that businesses which cater to everyday needs will not make use of it,” state leader Volker Bouffier said on Tuesday.
The decision comes after a Frankfurt court ruled in favour of a barbecue utensil store which had launched a legal objection to the fact that it could not implement 2G rules on its premises.
The court said in its ruling earlier in October that it had “considerable legal reservations about the exclusion of sales outlets and similar establishments from the so-called 2G rule”. link
Chicago Police Union Boss Tells Cops to Defy COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate
A Chicago police union boss told cops to defy the city’s upcoming COVID-19 vaccination reporting mandate.
Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said Tuesday he would take Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s administration to court if it enforced a directive ordering city workers to report their vaccination status by Friday.
Under the order, unvaccinated municipal workers who don’t submit to regular COVID-19 tests would be placed on unpaid leave.
...“It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50% or less for this weekend coming up,” the labor leader said.
Catanzara instructed his members to file for exemptions to receiving the vaccine, but not inform the city, in the clip.
“I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody, let alone that information about your medical history,” he said. Full article here
Msm is reporting on all the people walking off their jobs. According to them all these people are walking off their jobs simutaneously because of "working conditions." Not one word about the vaccine mandate. Gotta get the "news" to their dwindling audience. They even came up with a catchy new word: Striketober
Welcome to #Striketober. Thousands of workers are walking off the job at Kellogg's and John Deere amid the labor shortage, with Hollywood employees up next.
Thousands of workers across the US are on strike, and thousands more are preparing to walk out. It's being called "Striketober," and it shows a revitalized labor movement ready to down tools. Workers are flexing their power across the economy by quitting, striking, and demanding better conditions. A new month has been born in 2021. Instead of October, it's "Striketober."
That's because thousands of workers in every industry are saying no to current working conditions. They're not joining the wave of workers quitting during "the Great Resignation" phase of the labor shortage. They're staying at their current work - but demanding it change.
From Alabama coal miners to Hollywood theater hands and from Kellogg's to John Deere, American workers are flexing their power across the economy. link
This article link was just below the one above on my internet search for "walked off the job."
Again no mention of a vaccine mandate. 4.3 million walked off their jobs for every reason under the sun except the truth.
A record 4.3 million workers walked off the job in August
The number of job openings in August took a breather from the record highs it had been notching in recent months, but a record 4.3 million workers walked off the job, according to the federal Job Openings and Labor Turnover Summary.
Job openings fell from a record 10.9 million to 10.4 million — an unexpected drop that experts say could be attributable to contractions in commercial activity due to the delta variant of the coronavirus, falling economic expectations, companies' taking late-summer breathers from hiring, statistical noise or some combination of the above. link
I wonder if these "journalists" had to ace their creative writing classes to get hired. Or even better their bullshit classes.
