Stop The Discrimination Against BC Public Servants

Campaign Created by: BCPS Employees For Freedom Society

The funds from this campaign will be received by BCPS Employees For Freedom Society.

Goal: CAD $150,000
Raised: CAD $ 15,864

BCPS Employees for Freedom stands for the bodily autonomy and medical privacy of all peoples in British Columbia.

We are working to stop the Government of British Columbia from violating B.C. public servants’ constitutionally-protected employment rights, medical privacy and bodily autonomy through its coercive Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Policy and Order.

The B.C. government wants to punish public servants for not complying with its proof of vaccination mandate by terminating their employment for cause and not paying severance.

B.C. public servants are active in every domain the provincial government is responsible for, including:

  • the environment and Indigenous relations;
  • economic and social development;
  • transportation, infrastructure and agriculture;
  • energy and natural resources;
  • public safety and the administration of justice;
  • and more.

We are your family, friends and neighbours, and we provide the services British Columbians count on every day.

To learn more about us, watch our Employee Stories, read our News Releases and see our Open Letters.

Donor funds support our efforts to stop vaccine mandate terminations of B.C. public servants. Funds cover legal fees and administrative costs.

BCPS Employees for Freedom is a volunteer-run registered not-for-profit society in the Province of British Columbia, Canada.

MEDIA RELEASE : Plaintiff Launches Class Action Lawsuit
November 30, 2023
facebook X

VICTORIA – The BCPS Employees for Freedom Society (BCPSEF) is pleased to announce a class action lawsuit has been launched by representative plaintiff and BCPSEF member, Jason Baldwin, on behalf of all unionized employees of the B.C. Public Service over the Province of B.C.’s proof of COVID-19 vaccination mandate imposed on provincial government employees in November 2021. The plaintiff’s claim is against the Province of B.C. and British Columbia’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.

The plaintiff has filed this action because the Province’s COVID-19 employee vaccine mandate, enacted by executive order of the provincial Cabinet, was contrary to public service employees’ Charter rights and violated their medical privacy and bodily autonomy.

Although the action has been launched by one plaintiff, it is being brought on behalf of all unionized employees of the BC Public Service harmed by the Province’s vaccine mandate. As such, it has the potential to assert the rights of tens of thousands of unionized public servants in British Columbia.

The action claims the Public Health Officer committed the tort of misfeasance by:

    having no basis in fact to justify the information, data, and advice she provided and upon which the Province relied to develop its employee vaccination policy, and
    wilfully or recklessly ignored known potential risks of adverse events associated with the COVID-19 vaccination in providing advice to the Province.

The action further claims the Province violated employees’ rights under s.2d — freedom of association — of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and that forced disclosure of private medical information violated common law and statutory privacy rights.

The plaintiff seeks compensation through an award for aggravated and punitive damages. The plaintiff has retained counsel Umar Sheikh of Sheikh Law to represent him in this matter.

Mr. Cassels shared a variety of experiences and reflections from his 30-year career as a researcher, award-winning communicator and advocate for evidence-based drug and healthcare policy.
