In a recent Globe and Mail article, Professor Richard Moon commented on the growing debate over mandatory COVID-19 vaccines for children.
According to the news article, many religions, including the Mennonite Church Canada, have come out in support of vaccines. The church’s executive ministers issued a statement that said religious exemptions should not be granted.
Professor Moon said a person requesting a religious exemption may sincerely believe it’s a valid reason not to get vaccinated. But given the current circumstances, he said, a court would likely rule that vaccine requirements are justified under the limitations provision of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
