COVID 19 -- Litmus Test for Liars

September 18, 2020



liar-500.jpg


There is a positive side to the coronavirus hoax. 
It has exposed the extent of Illuminati banker power
and confirms their intention to enslave humanity.
Anyone who promotes this hoax is under their control, 
a globalist traitor or a pathetic dupe. 

Based on the uniformity of the worldwide response, 
a Communist one-world-government based empowered by
the world central banking cartel is already in place.







"You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies."  John 8:44

 I googled "Canada Coronavirus deaths" yesterday and learned there have been 9200 deaths "attributed" to the Coronavirus. 

So in a country of almost 38 million people, 9200 people may have died of this virus. That is less than one-quarter of one percent. 

The "pandemic" was not widespread, almost 2/3 were in Quebec and 30% in Ontario. So over 90% of the "deaths" occurred in these two largest provinces yet the whole country has been locked down.

Furthermore, 80% were in nursing homes, i.e. old people with other ailments. 

Even Google will tell you: "Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment," a reminder that in the past if we got the flu, we'd just lay low for a week. They didn't declare a national emergency.

Obviously the "pandemic" is cover for the globalist's hidden agenda, a "Great Reset."

As a result of this "pandemic", the government has provided over $53 billion in benefit payments to 8.16 million Canadians (1/3 of the workforce) who are unemployed. That is expected to rise to $80 billion. (Is this the end of "work"?)

The annual federal deficit has exploded by a factor of ten, from $34.4 billion to $343 billion. Another $80 billion will be added to the deficit next year.  (The Rothschilds create this money out of thin air but the Canadian taxpayer will repay it in sweat and tears.)

One-third of all small businesses may never reopen. The travel and hospitality industries have been decimated. Professional sports are being canceled.

Yet, in spite of this, there has not been any criticism from the mainstream media or politicians. Not even sports fans have complained. Indeed, some people think Fidelito's resolute action might earn him a majority government.

It must be the fluoride in the tap water.

OUR "LEADERS" ARE IMPOSTERS


trump-asked.png
 On page one of my book Illuminati: The Cult that Hijacked the World (2008), I wrote, "If this were a movie treatment, it would be rejected as implausible. Our leaders are not chosen for their intelligence or achievements but rather because they are able to win the peoples' trust and willing to betray it. They are chosen by a small Satanic cult -- Cabalist bankers and Freemasons -- that controls the world's finances and media...Many "leaders" are kept in line by having them indulge in horrifying occult rituals including human sacrifices, sexual orgies, pedophilia, rape, torture, and murder...The Illuminati goal is to degrade and enslave humanity, mentally and spiritually if not physically. [Their] influence is like cancer that extends throughout society."  Does the Coronahoax make sense now? 

It's no wonder our "leaders" are criminals, Satanists, and perverts. These are the only people the central banking cartel can trust. The Rothschilds are Satanists (Cabalist i.e. Masonic Jews.) Their cartel is a criminal fraud. They create the medium of exchange ("currency", "credit") out of thin air as a debt to themselves and charge interest. Any government could do this themselves interest and debt-free. Honest public servants represent a mortal threat to this racket. 

 All the policies deemed "progressive" -- gender-bending, multiculturalism, miscegenation, migration, attack on marriage and family, (homosexuality, pornography, promiscuity), BLM, ANTIFA -- are designed to undermine the target population, people of European and Christian descent who the Cabalist bankers regard as the last remaining obstacle to their hegemony. They are promoting sodomy in public schools. They are all about promoting sickness. "We corrupt in order to control," is their credo. We are being inducted into their cult as their servants.

GUNS 

It's surprising that the Illuminati launched this audacious psyop knowing there are 400 million guns in private hands in the US. Apparently they think American men -- emasculated by feminism and exhausted from porn -- will not mount any serious resistance. 

Universities and media now just promote the Satanist agenda. People like Stefan Molyneux and E. Michael Jones are de-platformed. Truth is labeled "hate." This amounts to mental enslavement.  Masks are mandatory in many places. Vaccines are next. 

Our society is satanically possessed, governed by psychopaths, traitors, and liars who wish to poison and enslave us. The "virus" symbolizes this Cabalist cancer. Our social institutions have all been subverted. The time has come for resistance and renewal. 

Take heart! Satanists destroy themselves.

Comments for "COVID 19 -- Litmus Test for Liars"

Doug P said (July 11, 2020):

I wonder if anyone knows what the death rates are. The gross misrepresentation of death rates is now the defacto proof that Rockefeller medicine lies for money. I prefer using 9-11 as a litmus test and always look to see what someone said about 9-11 back 20 years ago whenever possible. This is not only a psy-op but a massive humiliation and the humiliation breaks the spirit.


Michael said (July 11, 2020):

Fine article and thanks for putting those death percentages into perspective
for Canada. It appears they are going for broke with this craziness. Many are
duped here but in my county in Texas there are a lot of folks I meet that see
through the overblown aspect. Local police here will not force the use of
masks despite the governor's recent mandate.


Bruce G said (July 10, 2020):

Wish to thank so many of you for your comments and directions.

In light of this most recent post on The Great Reset and COVID the Theological response is the most obvious course to consider. Some may have faith in "armed resistance " but I know they have no ability to comprehend the Wall Street NWO connection despite all that's been said ("What's the Matter With Kansas?") and that may be their undoing.

They will fight for Money ie Mammon as they would for "Christ". Do they know the difference?

As for Rural Americans and their guns, can any reasonable observer detect any "fear" ----really--- from the Establishment on that? I'm sure Management has a "solution" relative to "guns". Small town resistance will easily be overcome by Main Battle Tanks and maybe even tactical neutron devices if that's deemed necessary.


Essel said (July 10, 2020):

Thomas said [below]: "The problem is that violence has always been and will always be a solution."

Can we cite ONLY ONE example of a military victory of the forces of good fighting a Masonic subversion?

Always, the bad guys have won by force of arms. See the French and Italian Revolutions (Garibaldi & Cie), the two World Wars to name but a few examples. Let's not talk about the Bolshevik revolution! Of course, this does not appear to the masses because it is the victors who write history and children learn that the "good" was on the side of the victors!

Why is this so? Why such an apparent "injustice"? It is easy to answer. First of all, we must point out an obvious fact that is generally forgotten: Does not God, the Almighty God, who could "with a breath of his mouth" destroy the wicked?

Answer: For the victims, who complacently consider themselves innocent and blameless, have not behaved in accordance with what God expects of men. They have multiplied iniquities and crimes before His face. And the first of the crimes, which was that of Adam and Eve and which almost everyone commits, is to make oneself God instead of God by telling oneself what is right and what is evil. And to believe and live as if the man was his own end and earthly life an end in itself. The Flood had no other cause. Then, of course, the crimes that were illuminated must be denounced, but the solution lies in the return to God and His Commandments. Not in words. In acts.


Tony B said (July 10, 2020):

Few have picked up on one of the major reasons the world cabal has dumped this phony pandemic on everyone. In fact, those who have do not think this through but automatically oppose it.

Today's world is so removed from reality, the reality created by God, who said all shall live by the sweat of their brow, that it can no longer continue the way that it has been going. Today almost all work can be done by machines of one kind or another and the greedy at the top will never hire a human if they can get a machine to do the same work.

Those behind this "reset" have as much as told us so for some time. It is their solution to this mal-nature which is deadly wrong.

A proper solution has to be some sort of guaranteed income to families. When machines build products with very few human jobs helping, there has to be some way for people to buy and use those products or the economy dies from lack of exchange media - a tried and true tactic of the money creators, in fact. But with machine mass production in spades and few jobs available for people the result will be want in the midst of plenty in a gigantic degree never before believed possible. This would cause a massive upheaval against technology and machinery, and rightly so.

But these wannabe world rulers, who hate their brows to sweat, all apparently satanic to the core, such as the new antichrist, Bill Gates, who is connected to both the Rothschild families and the Rockefeller families and is involved in absolutely everything which is destructive of life (WHO, vaccines, food poisoners - Monsanto, instant life killing 5G, digital money only for those allowed to live, fake vaccines to label/control the slaves allowed to exist, etc.) these Satanists WANT 85% TO 95% OF THE WORLD'S PEOPLE MURDERED. Of course, not them, but for us, those they consider their cattle to use as they please, according to their satanic manual, the Talmud.


JG said (July 10, 2020):

There is a large population of rural Americans who are well armed and WILL defend their property and families IF they are in danger. They also support their local police, national guard, and the people of their community. They DON'T hate themselves, the law, or their country either.

The MSM continues to ignore this reality because they know they can't change it.

The legitimate citizens of America are fleeing cities like New York, Chicago, Seattle, and Minneapolis. The urban areas might resemble what they were in the late 1960s once again if this ignorant chaos persists.


Thomas said (July 10, 2020):

I am afraid Hal Turner is pronouncing a truth here that none of us really want, but communism is hell on earth and the devil cannot be defeated with non-violent resistance and renewal.

Hal Turner said: https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/the-problems-inside-the-usa-are-not-going-to-stop-until-the-american-people-grab-up-every-communist-marxist-and-socialist-line-them-up-against-a-wall-and-machine-gun-them-to-death

The problem is that violence has always been and will always be a solution. Human nature is unfortunately like that.

Robert A. Heinlein describes it very vividly in his book Starship Troopers on page 359.

Conspiracy is Not a Theory

September 17, 2020



William-Casey-CIA-disinfo-campaign.jpg.optimal.jpg

The modern world reflects the Satanist (Cabalist Jewish) conspiracy
against God and man. The mainspring is the Cabalist Jewish (Masonic) central banking cartel. Its goal is the enslavement of mankind in a New World Order, world government tyranny,  aka "globalism." This is behind the COVID pandemic hoax.
As Andrew explains below, the CIA helps administers this conspiracy worldwide. It is the "Deep State." 






Andrew is a retired attorney living in Texas.

Understanding Conspiracy Theories

by Andrew
(henrymakow.com)

The problem with trying to explain "conspiracy theories" is most people don't understand that a "conspiracy" is: 

An agreement among two or more coconspirators to commit an illegal act through legal means or to commit a legal act through illegal means. 


So why are CONSPIRACY THEORIES demonized by MASS MEDIA (MSM) today? 

In 1967 the CIA  simply changed the definition of CONSPIRACY THEORIES to mean any narrative not approved by the CIA. The CIA Created the Label "Conspiracy Theorists" ... to Attack Anyone Who Challenges the "Official" Narrative.


mock.png
The CIA's disinformation campaigns were known as "Operation Mockingbird" where the CIA charged the MSM to repeat the same story. Washington Post publisher Hugh Graham famously said that a journalist was cheaper to buy than a whore, "a couple of hundred bucks a month."

It was so effective that Zbigniew Brzezinski said in 1972, "Shortly, the public will be unable to reason or think for themselves. They'll only be able to parrot the information they've been given on the previous night's news."

Outside America, however, conspiracy theories are well respected. 

For example, Russian Biologist and Former U.N. Expert Igor Nikulin explained last February that COVID-19 is a Biological Weapon Used by Global Government to Reduce the World's Population.

Igor Nikulin: "I believe that it is no coincidence [that China was infected with coronavirus]. I believe that this virus was selected very carefully, in order to reach countries that are considered to be America's rivals, such as China, Iran, and some EU countries including Italy. Many people think that there are pro-Russian tendencies in those countries, and this is why we see more infected people in those countries. I don't think that this is a mere coincidence. This is a scheme by the world's elites..."

Interviewer: "The global government..."

igor7.png
Igor Nikulin: "Right. The global government is the correct term. At least that is what they call themselves. No one elected them but this is how they see themselves. These 200 families have $400 trillion, and they consider themselves to be the most important people on Earth. They own most of the media outlets. They are the ones making the Hollywood movies - for example, they make movies about pandemics. These families control the minds of humanity, and claim that humanity must be reduced to one-tenth of the current population."

[...]

Interviewer: "Is it really possible to produce biological weapons that target a specific nation or ethnic group, and that may infect them but not others? There were reports that the Israelis were thinking about producing - or have actually produced - some sort of biological weapon that kills Palestinians but does not harm other Israelis. Is it true? Is it possible?"

Igor Nikulin: "People talk about this. I know that a few years ago, there was a strange epidemic in Madagascar. It was not in Africa. It was a pneumonic plague, which is a horrible thing. This epidemic killed only the locals, while it did not harm European tourists and not even the yellow race. There is also, of course, weapons such as Ebola, Avian Influenza, and the coronavirus that is currently infecting mostly Chinese and other Asian peoples. Such weapons exist. In 1999, the Americans started a project... The head of the CIA at the time, George Tenet, and President Clinton said that they would produce pathogenic agents that would affect certain races but not others. Twenty years have passed and the time for field experiments has come. It seems that planet Earth has been turned into a testing ground. I'll go even further and say that the Anglo-Saxon countries have issued a biological warning to all non-English speaking countries: 'Either you live according to the laws we impose on you, or you will not live on this planet. Either we kill you fast or we kill you slowly.' This is the main problem of modern world policy."

lenin-lie.jpg


On September 15, 2020, a high-level Chinese virologist who has fled the PRC under duress said China's government 'intentionally' released COVID-19 'I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab, which is the top coronavirus lab in the world.'


The Russian expert seems to be more credible because he's not playing BLAME GAMES and correctly pointing to THE GLOBAL GOVERNMENT ... which is how Russians refer to UN Agenda 2030 NEW WORLD ORDER ... whose admitted goal is to reduce global population 90%."

Sweden Parties While We Suck CO2

sweden.jpeg

I asked our Sweden correspondent how
his country evaded the #scadmdemic nonsense.
He answered that resistance is growing there. The
government has neither the credibility 
nor the means to enforce a lockdown.





By KMG
(henrymakow.com) 

The Swedish alt media has grown too powerful for TPTB and the criminal ghettos are too many and it would be impossible for the feminist Swedish police to enforce any lockdown here and then the whole world would be shocked to see Sweden and perhaps learn from Sweden - so TPTB didn't dare to touch us at all I believe...

Imagine the other week when Danish (!) people came to a Swedish Muslim ghetto and burned the Koran in Malmo. Reaction from Muslims? "We will enslave the jews..." - the Muslims were singing songs against the jews... It's true that these Muslims have understood more now than before and they (quite rightfully) blame things on the Swedish crypto jews after the Aschberg (Mossad) murdered Bechir Rabani.

So the situation is complicated here with the masses becoming more and more aware. Alt media channel Swebbtv has exploded in 3 years with 60 K YT subscribers (much more than our fake state television) and very powerful retired CEOs and stars openly supporting their channel  in very high-quality interviews (i.e. former Scania President Leif Ostling)


Youtube tried to shut them down but there were huge protests against the gov't (also from inside the gov't according to our sources) so they put it up again - imagine we can really stop the gov't from shutting down alt-media channels. The socialist prime minister is now waving Swedish flags and complaining at our migrant hordes... Of course, he is trying to escape the coming judgment and trying to recruit nationalist supporters. Classic tactics.

We have another ten to twenty powerful and well-informed alt-media channels - all of whom have picked up the truth and importance of culture war. The tax bureau attacked a former Swedish conservative FEMALE Christian alt news priest the other week and tried to tax her to death for receiving donations online. There is a huge protest about that now with people supporting her "en masse" so the gov't loses every major battle it seems.

To summarise: inform the people about the corruption, the culture war and then expose every attack from the tyrants on the alt media people. That is when the tide will turn. My take. Whichever attack on the people that they carry out at this moment fades into nothing very quickly because people protest and they are angry.

Last week our Parliament reopened after the summer break.

Can you imagine - EVERY MP was shuttled in on the backside of the parliament building to escape the protesting people and the alt-media people standing at the front door... This is how scared they are now.

Our minister of justice said publicly that "Swebbtv is the enemy of the people...". He lied: "Enemy of the Satanists" is the correct term.
----

First Comment from K-

I have put some thoughts on why Sweden didn't go for lockdown as most other countries in the world, as it's not logical for me that politicians (i.e. the guys drawing in the strings), should be as helpful that saving us from mandatory quarantine, masks on so on? I. e. the same politicians that for some 30 years or so have almost go over bodies to implement the Kalergi plan of ethnical cleansing here in Sweden. So an agenda of something other than medical or scientific must be behind the Swedish non-lock down policy? I have been thinking in terms of shielding the Swedish economy from a housing bubble crash, or spare Sweden before it's role as a pilot country on the mandatory vaccinations? But as the Swedish guy in your latest article put it, the reason is that the Muslims (about 10% of the population)  and other immigrant groups in Sweden is now so very large and spread everywhere  (ca. 1/3 of the population), that mandatory lockdown is impossible to uphold. I therefore think the guy 'KMG' is exactly right on the nail on this.

Also in the other article, the one by ex. diplomat Jens Jerndal, I think this is a great article. I didn't know about him before but took a lock and did see that the same, or near identical article, had been published earlier on a Swedish forum. I did notice that he is 86 years old and it's striking that some so rather old persons - well, he seems to have a young mind - is at the forefront to save the world from the perpetrators of the Plandemic. He not only informs us, he also give us advice on how to act.

I also think of 83 year 'young' Dr. Lorraine Day, as the "Super grandma" in class with the "Superman". Here is some videos with Dr. Day from May 9, 2020:

Dr. Lorraine Day AIDS Expert: The Plandemic Was Designed To Usher in the NWO and the Noahide Laws To Depopulate the Planet And To Make Everyone Pay For It! - Great Eye Opening Videos! Saturday,

I like your mixing kindness of animals and so on at your sight. We really need some good things to change our minds on, and to contrast all the evil of this world now. Maybe the last video of ABBA will fit into that?

Comments for "Sweden Parties While We Suck CO2"

Tony B said (September 18, 2020):

Interesting good news, showing what is possible when you can get the truth to enough people.

This reminds me of what one of my "phone man" sons discovered back in the 70s/80s, wiring government buildings for phones.

Whenever a new county courthouse is built in the U.S., from that time on, it now contains secret entrances and exits for the judges and their cars. Obviously someone already knew that judges were going to go for the agenda, not the law, therefore they would soon become very unpopular and afraid of the wrath of the people.

Most U.S. judges of all types, as well as most U.S. lawyers, are freemasons. In some states, 100%. Practically, maybe positively, a prerequisite. Remember, judges, are appointed, seldom, if ever, elected.


We're All Being Played

This is how you destroy a Nation from within and in a very short order.
Will it work, I guess that depends on you and me.

by John Jensen
(henrymakow.com)

    Something to think about....
       
The US Population is 330,000,000 and in 5 months the number of deaths was 130,000. The number of deaths as a percent of the population is 0.03939 %, compared to the number of cancer cases diagnosed in 2019 (1,762.450) and 607,000 deaths.

    This doesn't seem far-fetched because it is happening before our eyes.

    A very well-orchestrated plan, or an unimaginable set of events that just fell into place with the United States front and center? Your call.

    Scare people with a virus, force them to wear masks and place them in quarantine.

    Count the number of deaths every second of every day, in every News Headline. By the way, ninety-nine and eight-tenths percent of the people who get the virus recover. About one to two-tenths of one percent who get the virus, die. Most of them have other medical problems. Did you catch that? Less than 1/2 of a percent die.

    Close businesses = 35,000,000+ instantly unemployed.

    Remove entertainment and prohibit Recreation; Closing parks, gyms, bars, restaurants, sports.

    No dating. No touching. Isolate people. Dehumanize them.

    Close Temples, Churches, Mosques and prohibit worship. Close schools. Create a vacuum and let depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and desperation set in.

    Then, ignite hatred and civil unrest, creating Civil War.

    Empty the prisons because of the virus and fill the streets with criminals.

    Undermine the law, Riot, Loot and Attack all Law Enforcement. For example, send in Antifa (freedom fighters?) to vandalize property, but tell the government to order a stand-down. Then... Defund Law Enforcement and abolish Police.

    We are all being played by those who want to destroy America! This is how you destroy a Nation from within and in a very short order. Will it work, I guess that depends on you and me.

Judaism in Essence is Satanism - We've all been duped, including many Jews

August 22, 2020

Judaism in Essence is Satanism- We've been duped
(including many Jews) 

Israel Shahak (1933-2001) was a professor 
of organic chemistry, at Hebrew University
 of Jerusalem.

Far from championing monotheism, Shahak
claims that Judaism is Satanism in disguise.
This may explain the direction of mankind.





by Israel Shahak
(henrymakow.com)

"The religion of most traditional Jews is not monotheistic, but contains a variety of male & female gods ... religious Jews apparently pray to Satan almost as readily as to God ... ritual itself is absolutely uppermost, while interpretation is secondary ... many traditional rituals explicitly intend to fool or trick God or His angels

The primary reason for the existence of non-Jews is to serve as slaves of Jews ... In 2010, Israel's top Sephardic rabbi declared that the only reason for the existence of non-Jews is to serve Jews & do work for them ... Jewish religious traditions regarded slavery as the natural & appropriate lot of all non-Jews, Jews some of the leading slave-traders historically

Jewish lives have infinite value, non-Jewish ones none at all ... if a Jew needed a liver, it would be obligatory to kill an innocent Gentile & take his ... today Israel is widely regarded as one of the world centers of organ-trafficking

israel_shahak1.jpg
According to the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is perhaps the vilest being who ever lived, condemned to spend eternity in Hell, immersed in boiling excrement ... many deeply religious Jews utter a prayer each day for the immediate extermination of all Christians

The traditional penalty for any Jew who informs authorities on any matter regarding Jews has always been death, often preceded by hideous torture. ['Law of the informer' (din Moser) - A Jew who reveals Jewish secrets is a 'Moser' & the law imposes death on Jews who betray fellow Jews to the judgement of Gentiles. 'Law of the pursuer' (din Rodef) commands every Jew to kill or wound severely any Jew perceived as intending to kill another Jew.]

Political rulers with little sympathy for subjects sometimes restrict power to a small group of well-rewarded mercenaries [i.e., leading Jews 'kosher nostra'] ... E.g., traditional economic niches of European Jews from tax-farming, with Jews more likely to extract every last penny, their antipathy for all non-Jews ensuring minimal tempering by human sympathy

All powerful mass-media technologies of our modern world, film, radio, & television, invented & pioneered by Gentiles, but in each case control was seized by ruthless Jewish businessmen ... By the 1950s, nearly all of America's leading concentrations of electronic media power were solidly in Jewish hands

British Columbia is Officially a Police State

August 21, 2020

British Columbia is Officially a Police State



Below is the media release today by the BC Government turning the screws on those who dissent from their in-sane masking/ social distance orders.

oh, this is going to be good = the rally on August 29 2020 in Kelowna bodes to be a defining moment in Canadian history. 
----

Police and other provincial enforcement officers are being given the ability to issue $2,000 violation tickets for owners or organizers contravening the provincial health officer's (PHO) order on gatherings and events.

They will also be able to issue $200 violation tickets to individuals not following the direction of police or enforcement staff at events or who refuse to comply with requests to follow PHO orders or safe operating procedures or respond with abusive behavior.

Effective immediately, these new measures are enacted under the provincial state of emergency, using the extraordinary powers of the Emergency Program Act (EPA) in the ongoing support of B.C.'s COVID-19 response and Restart Plan.

"These orders will help us put a stop to the selfish acts of a small minority of British Columbians, who are threatening to erode the progress our province has made in controlling COVID-19," said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. "While I'm disappointed these measures are now necessary, I am taking this action to give police agencies and provincial enforcement officers the ability to take action against those who are putting people's lives at risk."

In addition to enabling action from police, the Province is enlisting compliance and enforcement staff from provincial ministries to support enforcement and help issue tickets for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes liquor, cannabis and gaming inspectors, community safety unit inspectors and conservation officers.

"As a regional federation of local governments, we welcome these new measures, and we look forward to collaborating with the Province to ensure a co-ordinated and thoughtful response to COVID-19," said Linda Buchanan, vice-chair, Metro Vancouver board of directors. "Metro Vancouver will continue its critical role as a convener on ideas and strategies for preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our region and supporting the Province in keeping COVID-19 at bay."

The enforcement focus will be on $2,000 fines to owners, operators and organizers for contraventions of the provincial health officer's order on gatherings and events. This includes hosting a private party or public event in excess of 50 people, failing to provide appropriate hand sanitation and washroom facilities, failing to provide sufficient space in the venue for physical distancing, failing to obtain a list of names and contacts at a large event or having more than five guests gathered in vacation accommodation.

When required, police and other provincial enforcement officers will also be able to actively enforce the order and ticket a series of other infractions, including:

$200 violation tickets for individuals who actively encourage others to attend gatherings or events that do not comply with established requirements, or refuse to leave or disperse when directed to do so by enforcement officers; and, $200 violation tickets for individuals who refuse to comply with requests to follow the PHO order or safe operating procedures of a restaurant, bar or another licensed establishment, or respond with abusive behavior towards employees.

Violation tickets expand the Province's enforcement toolkit to support the COVID-19 response. Police and other provincial enforcement officers will independently exercise discretion to issue tickets for Emergency Program Act order violations under the Offence Act's Violation Ticket Administration and Fines Regulation.

If violation tickets do not act as a deterrent, or in cases of particularly egregious contraventions or for repeat offenders, police can recommend charges in relation to the offense. On conviction, judicial penalties of up to $10,000 may be levied.
