Politician Warns: Trudeau Govt Plans To Build COVID ‘Quarantine / Isolation’ Camps Across Canada
An Ontario politician is raising alarm over the Trudeau Liberal government’s plan to expand COVID isolation/quarantine facilities coast to coast.
Randy Hillier, Independent Ontario MPP for Lanark, Frontenac & Kingston, expressed concern over the “Federal Quarantine/ Isolation sites” in the provincial question period late this week.
He asked the Doug Ford government of Ontario if they knew of “how many of these camps will be built, and how many people does this government expect to detain.”
He pointed out how documentation shows that the “Federal Quarantine/ Isolation sites” could be used for “other requirements” besides for COVID-19.
“So your government must be in negotiations and aware of these plans to potentially detain and isolate citizens and residents of our country and our province, so speaker, to the Premier, where will these camps be built, how many people will be detained, and for what reason, for what reasons can people be kept in these isolation camps, and I’d like to have the Premier assure the people of Ontario…,” said Hillier, whose microphone was cut off before he could finish.
In an email sent to his followers, Hillier expressed more of his concerns.
“The Premier has been actively dodging my questions since July. Today was just another example of the new status quo in Queen’s Park, no response.
“After this exchange I’m not even sure if the Premier and his Cabinet know what’s going on regarding the Federal government considering the expansion of isolation/ quarantine facilities from coast to coast,” wrote Hillier in an email sent out Thursday.
“The expansion of isolation/ quarantine camps in Canada is something of concern and the Ontario government must know about it, so why won’t they tell the people of Ontario?”
The Government of Canada (GoC) is currently soliciting feedback and information from industry service providers for additional “Federal Quarantine/ Isolation sites” which if built, could be used for “other requirements” besides only for COVID-19 imposed quarantines.
