“Freedom Convoy” Protester Reportedly Said Vax Mandates Block Him Visiting Sick Kid — Medical Facility Says That’s False

It’s a parent’s nightmare: your child is sick, and you cannot be with them. In the midst of a pandemic, it’s something plenty of parents have worried over, but a medical facility says that one family’s story of suffering through the experience isn’t actually accurate.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – FEBRUARY 16: A police officer stands guard near trucks participating in a blockade of downtown streets near the parliament building as a demonstration led by truck drivers protesting vaccine mandates continues on February 16, 2022 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canada’s history to try to put an end to the blockade which is now in it’s third week.

Jake Klassen is quoted in a Fortune article this week, saying that he and his wife can’t visit their nine-year-old daughter, who is in palliative care in Winnipeg.

According to the story, he says that the facility, St. Amant, does not allow families to visit unless they are fully vaccinated. Klassen says, “This is something worth fighting for,” noting that the facility’s rules have kept him from seeing his child for months, and that he fears his semi trailer and two campers, which are part of a blockade formed of parked vehicles at the Canada-U.S. border, might be seized by the government.

On social media, Klassen and his wife are being described as the worst parents of 2022, and as abandoning their daughter over a shot.

Here’s the problem though — the medical facility, which has gotten exactly the attention you’d expect out of being mentioned in this context, has responded and said it’s factually incorrect.

In a statement, St. Amant said, “At St.Amant, Designated Family Caregivers, who are unvaccinated are welcome to visit within the visitation pod (which is away from all other residents).”

They also responded with appreciation to those who have made donations, and provided this link to the foundation that provides many of their facility’s comforts and needs for those who are still asking where to donate.
