CANADA: Nineteen firefighters in Calgary who were fired for refusing Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccination” are now suing the department and the city for $38 million in damages.
Plaintiffs say the Canadian city’s injection mandate “violated” their basic “human rights” by forcing them to alter their DNA in order to continue working and making a living.
“There’s something tyrannical about these mandates,” says Stephen Dabbagh, the lawsuit’s leader. (Related: Canada’s covid jab mandate is why the trucker caravans were formed.)
“We can’t identity everybody behind it, but what we can do is hold people accountable, like the fire chief, politicians, city managers. Those people are responsible for their actions.”
Dabbagh had worked as a firefighter at the Calgary Fire Department (CFD) for some 20 years, including most recently as a fire captain. He reportedly resigned under duress on Dec. 8, 2021 after being told that he had to take the jab.
Unwilling to let that stand without a fight, Dabbagh and 18 of his colleagues banded together to try to stop the “political and ideological tyranny of these mandates.”
“It’s about trying to hold people (politicians, bureaucrats) accountable for their actions,” Dabbagh told LifeSiteNews.
The suit’s Statement of Claim was delivered to the City of Calgary and CFD on July 7 in the Court of Queens Bench of Alberta.
More lawsuits like this need to be filed
A portion of the suit, $2 million, aims to cover damages for mental duress and violations of the firefighters’ Charter rights under the Criminal Code for “Punitive and exemplary damages.”
“By forcing its loyal employees to take experimental injections as a requisite to employment, the City has breached its legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to its Employees contrary to section 217.1 of the Criminal Code of Canada,” the lawsuit reads.
“The Plaintiffs have suffered measurable damages, including mental distress, anxiety, and, in particular, injury to dignity and self-respect. The Plaintiffs are therefore entitled to significant damages due to the manner in which the City suspended their employment, including a claim for punitive aggravated damages arising from flagrant human rights and Charter violations.”
All city employees in Calgary, including firefighters, were told back in the fall of 2021 that they had to get jabbed for the Fauci Flu and show proof of it or else submit to constant “testing,” which involves an invasive cotton swab being shoved up the nose.
There were also limited exemptions available, though not many qualified for those.
In March of 2022, Calgary’s covid jab mandate was “suspended,” but it was already too late for Dabbagh and his colleagues. Their goal now is to get paid for what they had to endure, as well as to stop this type of tyranny from ever being imposed again.
“The law says we have these rights (to refuse the jabs via Canada’s Charter) even if they are not being upheld by the courts,” Dabbagh says.
“For me, it is using every avenue to fight against the political and ideology tyranny of these mandates … These medications, or whatever they are called, are not safe and did not work.”
Nearly all of the firefighters named in the suit have worked as city firefighters for a long time. One of them was fired simply for showing support for the Freedom Convoy, which is a violation of rights all on its own.
Some of the firefighters have returned to work but under duress. They are still named in the lawsuit because their human rights have been impacted, and “even people who were on leave at the time have still suffered human rights violations,” says Alberta lawyer Leighton Gray, who is representing the firefighters in the case.
