Ontario lawmaker receives grassroots support for bill banning COVID discrimination of workers

(LifeSiteNews) — A petition to support Independent Ontario MPP Roman Baber’s proposed legislation that would stop employers from discriminating against employees who choose not to get the COVID-19 jabs has passed 120,000 signatures.

In an email sent out to his supporters Wednesday, Baber said his petition to support his “Jobs & Jabs Bill” has massive support and asked all his followers to do what they can to support his bill.

Baber said his supporters can help the bill by completing “at least 3 of the following 4 items.”

  1. Send an email AND call the office of as many people mentioned above and urge them not to cost you or your loved one their job by blocking my Jobs & Jabs Bill.
  2. Call and tell your MPP’s staff and email your MPP’s constituency office and demand that they do not cost you or your loved one their job by blocking my Jobs & Jabs Bill. To find your MPP by postal code visit  https://voterinformationservice.elections.on.ca/en/election/search
  3. Post on all your social media that Doug Ford has an option to save hundreds of thousands of jobs but if any of his MPPs block my Bill (we are watching Government House Leader, Paul Calandra) he will sentence hundreds and thousands of people to unemployment. Please tag @Fordnation/FordnationDougFord @paulcalandra @MonteMcnaughton.
  4. Write a Letter (email) to the Editor of your local newspaper or any province wide newspaper. Your letter should implore that no one should lose their job because of a personal medical choice and that MPPs will have a chance to save all jobs this Tuesday, October 5th, by not blocking MPP Roman Baber’s Jobs & Jabs Bill.

According to Baber, all it takes is one MPP to “block the Bill” which he plans on introducing on October 5 to the Ontario Legislature.

“That is why we must now, collectively, put maximum pressure on Premier Doug Ford, Minister of Labour Monte McNaughton, House Leader Paul Calandra, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, Liberal Leader Steven Del Luca and your local MPP. Your local MPP must know that you will not stand for him or her blocking Roman’s Jobs Bill,” wrote Baber.

Baber says that if his “Jobs and Jabs” legislation is passed, it will “protect workers from termination or being placed on leave of absence due to their vaccination status or failing to disclose their vaccination status.”
