Canada To Send All Its Anti-Vaccine Idiots To Re-Education Camps.
The Canadian province of Ontario is about to pass a bill that would require parents who don’t want to vaccinate their kids for religious or “moral” reasons to take a class in which some nice medical professional patiently explains to them that vaccines do not cause autism, why herd immunity is important, and the fact that measles, mumps and rubella are not actually diseases anyone wants to have.
At least then, they will be somewhat more informed about the stupid decision they are about to make.
(e.g. Jim Carey's former flaky girlfriend!) The bill is being proposed following the suspension of 591 students in Waterloo who failed to update their immunization records, as well as outbreaks of whooping cough in Alberta and chicken pox in Michigan, not to mention the measles outbreak that hit the United States last year. Given the liberal majority government in Ontario, the bill is likely to pass in time for the next school year. It will also allow medical professionals to issue proof of immunization, which will allow for easier tracking of those records. If parents take the class and are unmoved in their beliefs, they can still opt to not vaccinate their kids. Unfortunately, it’s likely that they will still decide against vaccinations, because these kinds of people often believe in a worldwide governmental conspiracy to cover up the fact that vaccines cause autism for some nefarious reason, and will likely see these classes as a part of this. However, perhaps these classes can reach parents who are less far gone in their beliefs, and it will be worth it for that alone.
The girl's mom, Christina Barnett, told InsideEdition.com that little Harper was driving around the neighborhood one afternoon with her nanny.Even though she has multiple toddler-sized cars, Barnett said that the bright yellow miniature Mini Cooper was her "favorite little car," since it's the only one equipped with a gas pedal.But what the 2-year-old likes even more, Barnett said, was the police cruiser that their cop neighbor often drives, mentioning that Harper "gets so excited when she sees the car."So when Sergeant Bryan Jared of the Lexington Police Department spotted the girl on the block as he was getting off work, he didn't pass up the opportunity to say hello."He turned the lights and the sirens on, got out, and pretended to give her a ticket," Barnett said, laughing. "She's really comfortable around him."The neighborhood sergeant then uploaded the picture on his Facebook, writing, "Said she was late for a nail appointment."Jared later told Barnett that her daughter was charged with multiple offenses, including speeding, driving underaged, picking her nose, and, "her Taylor Swift music was too loud.""It’s not something we encounter every day, but our officers are ready to respond as needed," Lexington Police Department's public information officer Brenna Angel told InsideEdition.com.Jared said that he has known Harper all her life, and the infraction was out of character on her otherwise impeccable driving record: "She's usually a good girl."Jared did reassure InsideEdition.com that she will not be charged for drinking and driving, since the only open container that was found in her car was a half-empty Capri Sun.When she was handed the ticket, her nanny Alexis Frederick Shuler told InsideEdition.com that she kept asking, "what is this?""I'm sure she just batted her eyes and got off with a warning," one person commented.
