Things turned ugly in Canada after community organizers started offering to teens online whose parents are against the COVID-19 vaccine to secretly drive them to a vaccination site.

It began on Friday (Dec. 3), after a Saskatchewan community organizer named Julian Wotherspoon posted a Twitter message offering to assist any 13- to 17-year-olds who wanted to get vaccinated despite opposition from their parents. “I’m your ride to the clinic,” she said. “If anyone asks, I’m taking you and my kids to a movie. Let’s do this.”

According to the Saskatchewan Health Authority, children aged 13 and older “who are able to understand the benefits and possible reactions” of a vaccine do not need a parent’s permission to be jabbed. Equally, teens can refuse immunization by giving “mature minor” consent to their health provider.

Wotherspoon’s tweet caused quite a stir online, eliciting both praise and outrage. She has since made her account private.
