Canadian Federal Government Sued for Quarantine Order

Apr 6, 2021 | Quarantine

On 15 March 2021, a news organization, Rebel News Network Ltd., sued the Federal Government about it’s requirements to quarantine. The argument was made that Part I of the Canadian Constitution Act of 1982 which  is known as the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, are being breached.  It was reported by a news organization,  Black Locks, that “The order under the Quarantine Act requires air passengers including Canadian citizens to prepay three nights’ stay at airport hotels, meals, cleaning and pandemic tests on arrival in Canada, about $2000 by federal estimate. Rebel News said the order was “not necessary or even effective at reducing the spread of Covid-19,” and the “true motivation for mandating the quarantine provisions was to effect an arbitrary detention to deter travel outside the country by implementing a dangerous, costly, capricious and mandatory quarantine period for air travelers entering Canada.” The argument is further supported by the refusal of the Minister of Health to release the evidence on which this quaratine order are based.
