“If you’re looking to get married in the town of Oakville, Ontario, you now have to show proof of full vaccination in order to obtain a marriage license.” [Source: Conservativereview.com]
In a clear contravention of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Canadian town of Oakville, Ontario, now requires anyone wanting to make appointments for marriage licenses and ceremonies to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. The requirement openly contravenes Article 16 of the Human Rights Declaration, which, without exception or limitation, specifically states that men and women of full age have the right to marry.
Even prior to this requirement, as citizens of Ontario, residents of Oakville were already subject to significant restrictions of their rights. Since late September the province has required full COVID-19 vaccination for entry to restaurants, gyms, nightclubs, sporting events, concerts, and other locations. Hardly surprisingly, therefore, these restrictions have quickly become subject to widespread public protests.
