A member of the legislature of Canada’s province of Ontario was expelled during a session Tuesday morning because she was not vaccinated for COVID-19.

Cambridge, Ontario, MPP Belinda Karahalios had recently recovered from COVID-19 and tested negative for the virus. But Speaker Ted Arnott ordered her to leave because the current advice from the public officer of health was that she must be out of the chamber for 90 days following her positive test, Canada’s CBC News reported.

“I need to address the member for Cambridge – member for Cambridge is obviously in the precinct and in the chamber at the present time in contravention of the current COVID-19 screening protocols that have been adopted by the Legislature – and I must now ask the member to withdraw from the chamber and leave the precinct,” Arnott said.

Karahalios refused, saying “the rules that you’ve set out is proof of double vaccination or proof of negative rapid antigen test, which I was able to provide this morning.”

“I’m not in contravention of the rules,” she said.

But the lawmaker was escorted out after Arnott asked her three times to leave.

On Twitter, Karahalios, a critic of vaccine mandates and pandemic lockdowns, called the Ontario government a “disgrace” and its actions “an affront to democracy.”

Alluding to her natural immunity – which more than 140 studies have shown to be superior to immunity afforded by vaccines – she said she was removed despite being “the MPP least likely to spread COVID-19.”

In June 2020, Toronto’s City News reported, Karahalios was expelled from the Progressive Conservative caucus by Ontario Premier Doug Ford for voting against a sweeping law that extended pandemic emergency orders.

Ontario officials announced this week that people given vaccine exemptions will soon be forced to adhere to a system in which they must present a QR code for entry to public establishments.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
