    Unvaxxed parents evicted from Ronald McDonald House

    Unvaccinated parents of four-year-old boy battling leukemia claim they are being evicted from Ronald McDonald House in Canada - but the charity IS offering them alternative accommodation

    The family of a four-year-old boy battling leukemia claim they are being evicted from a Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver because they are refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19 - but the charity says it will be offering them alternative accommodations.

    Ronald McDonald House's British Columbia and Yukon Branch (RMHBC), which provides temporary housing for families of children undergoing treatment for serious medial conditions, on Monday sent out a letter to all its residents, notifying them that a vaccine mandate was going into effect on January 17, followed by a two-week grace period.

    Under the new policy, everyone five years and older must get at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Those who fail to comply will be required to leave the facility on January 31.

    Austin Furgason, a father-of-two from Kelowna, British Columbia, shared a video on social media on Tuesday, which shows him confronting an administrator at the Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver, where his family have been staying while his four-year-old son, Jack, is undergoing treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

    In the recording, Furgason shows the letter announcing the vaccine mandate to the camera, then asks to speak to an administrator.

    'I just want to get this straight: by the end of the month, my four-year-old boy with leukemia is getting evicted because we don't have a vaccine? ' he asks.

    The administrator replies that the eviction would not apply to his son, who is under five, but rather to his parents if they are unvaccinated.

    'This is some kind of crazy evil like I've never seen in my life,' Furgason says.

    In the letter sent out by Ronald McDonald House, it states: 'RMHBC recognizes and acts upon its responsibility to maintain a safe and healthy environment including taking every precaution reasonable in the circumstances to protect the health and safety of individuals attending at an RMHBC Facility, particularly given the vulnerable populations serviced by RMHBC and the significant risk of transmission of communicable disease in our congregate living settings,' the letter read in part.

    RMHBC told CityNews that its family services team and social workers will work to find alternative accommodations, such as hotels, for unvaccinated patients and their loved ones.

    In the video, posted to social media, Ferguson launches into an argument that even that even those people who have been vaccinated can still contract and transmit COVID. He also accuses the charity of forcing people to choose between their children and getting vaccinated against their beliefs.

    Furgason points out that his son, who is seen playing on the floor next to him, has his other required shots, adding: 'we're not anti-vaxxers.'

    The RMHBC official presses Furgason on whether his family are vaccinated against COVID, to which he says: 'no.'

    The video of Furgason's confrontation with the RMHBC manager has gone viral on Twitter, having been viewed more than 721,000 times as of Wednesday, and has prompted a response from the charity, which runs more than 685 programs benefiting sick children and their families in 62 countries around the world.

    As of Tuesday, the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control has reported a total of over 286,000 COVID-19 cases in the province, with 2,239 new cases.

    In regards to the "case numbers" ... if people would just STOP getting that stupid, bogus test every time they sneeze, the numbers would plummet.

    At this point, vaccinated and unvaccinated are both spreading this. If the vaccine prevented spread, then I would say yes, if you're going to be close to an immunocompromised population, you should be vaccinated, but we know now that is not the case. And I totally agree with you about the case numbers! Quit. Testing. Healthy. People. PERIOD!

    I just heard that a GoFundMe page was started for them and it's over $100,00 already. Haven't had a chance to check it out.


    ETA: it's currently at just a smidge over $157,000

    What do you think the general opinion in Canada is amongst the people?

    Don't know for sure, but I'd say most are outraged unless they are so pro-jab they can't see anything else. At the rate the GoFundMe is growing, I'd say there are an awful lot of people who think it's inhumane to kick out parents and children over the age of 5.

    Currently just over $162,000

    My job is providing one test for every employee and five KN95 masks and we are near 100% vaccinated. Seems like a money laundering scheme. Has Hunter Biden been hired by a medical supply company lately?
