Conservative MP Leslyn Lewis has initiated a petition in the House of Commons, urging the Canadian government to withdraw from two global intergovernmental organizations, the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The petition argues that Canada’s membership in these organizations undermines personal autonomy, compromises national sovereignty, and imposes negative consequences on the Canadian people. It emphasizes that the potential drawbacks of membership far outweigh any benefits.
The petition specifically highlights several aspects of these organizations that have raised concerns among Canadians. One of these is Agenda 2030 and its operational “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs). There is apprehension that the SDGs will infringe on cultural values, education, nutrition, child development, and other aspects of Canadian society. Furthermore, the petition mentions Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), a program that promotes and normalizes sexual values and activities in publicly funded schools. Parents are increasingly worried about the erosion of their children’s innocence due to these changes.
Another area of concern is the International Health Regulations (IHR), which have undergone amendments that appear to prioritize universal surveillance over the creation of healthy societies. There are fears that these changes align more with the interests of globalist entities rather than the well-being and freedom of Canadians. The petition argues that these sweeping impacts on public and private life serve the UN/WHO and unelected private entities, while diminishing the health rights and freedom of Canadians.
The petition has gained significant traction, amassing 6,290 signatures in just a few days since its launch on October 10. This highlights the growing support among Canadians for the withdrawal from these global intergovernmental bodies. This is not the first petition submitted by Ms. Lewis regarding the WHO. She previously submitted a petition regarding amendments to the IHR, calling for an immediate parliamentary debate on the legally binding health regulations.
Citizens like independent researcher James Roguski have been closely following the actions of the WHO and its health policy forum, the World Health Assembly (WHA). Roguski claims that these organizations are continuously seeking to expand their power while neglecting their actual responsibilities, such as the development of international advertising and labeling of pharmaceutical products.
The petition sponsored by Ms. Lewis will remain open until February 7, 2024, allowing concerned Canadians to voice their opposition to the proposed changes to the IHR. This is particularly significant as member states will vote on these changes at the WHA’s annual meeting, which will take place two months after the petition’s closing date.
In summary, the petition initiated by Leslyn Lewis calls for the Canadian government’s withdrawal from the UN and WHO, citing concerns over the erosion of personal autonomy, national sovereignty, and negative consequences for Canadians. The petition highlights specific issues such as the SDGs, CSE, and amendments to the IHR that have raised alarm among Canadians. The significant number of signatures received so far demonstrates the growing support for this cause.
