TDF legal team is gearing up to fight against discriminatory booster mandates on behalf of post-secondary students and staff.
TORONTO: The Democracy Fund (TDF) has delivered a letter to Western University objecting to its newly-imposed booster mandate. The letter warns the University that the booster mandate is likely unlawful, unconstitutional and medically unnecessary. TDF is urging the university to rescind or modify the booster mandate. You can read a copy of the letter by clicking here.
TDF is also offering free legal information to post-secondary students and staff who are facing the newly-imposed booster mandates. Western University announced on August 22, 2022, that it would require proof of a booster shot from all students, faculty, staff and visitors to its campus and the University of Toronto announced it would require proof of a booster shot from students living in residence on July 28, 2022.
As other Canadian universities and colleges are likely to follow suit and implement these same restrictions, TDF lawyers are making the necessary preparations to fight these unlawful, discriminatory mandates. Students and staff facing booster requirements can visit thedemocracyfund.ca/boosters to tell their story and submit an application for free legal assistance.
Western University announced the implementation of its booster shot just two weeks shy of the beginning of the school year, leaving students who have already paid their tuition fees and organized their accommodations in a difficult position, while also facing the potential loss of their academic year.
TDF has begun crowdfunding to hire the best civil liberties lawyers in Canada to fight booster mandates. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today!
