Legal Issues

Legal aspects of COVID-19 measures must be approached on a jurisdictional basis. As such, no comprehensice position is possible, but we will add information by country as it becomes available.


Rebel News has engaged legal counsel on the legality of mandatory mask wearing and vaccination. As a result, they have made available, cards and buttons describing your right to refuse mask wearing under the law in Canada[1]. They also have a ‘fight the fines‘ campaign.

Ontario MPP has researched the mask issue and discusses it in this next video:

Canuck Law has some tips on dealing with the issue of being challenged on not wearing a mask[6].

Death Rate

Continuing anecdotal reports of miss-classification of deaths as due to COVID-19 are borne out by recent research by Gu.


The public is widely uninformed or misinformed about the efficacy and availability of certain types of tests. Now we will track new developments.

An Israeli Israeli firm, Newsight Imaging, has developed a saliva test[2] that returns a result in less than a second and a 95% accuracy at a cost of less than $0.25 per test. It is in clinical trials.

Testing in Canada

The Canadian government has set up the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force
