Volunteer to Host a Candlelight Vigil in your Community!
On behalf of Canada Health Alliance (CHA) and Vaccine Choice Canada (VCC), we would like to thank you for stepping forward in your local community to assist with our Nationwide Candlelight Vigils initiative. Our intention is to bring healing to our communities and offer support to those who have been harmed by either the vaccines or public health mandates.
For more information about our initiative, please visit the Candlelight Vigils page.
We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for all participants involved in the Nationwide Candlelight Vigils initiative, including all members, volunteers, advisors, individuals from other groups or organizations and members of the community.
Please review the following terms and conditions:
1. Candlelight Vigils are peaceful and quiet gatherings to honour those injured or harmed by vaccines and/or mandates.
2. This is NOT a protest or a rally, but an opportunity for communities to come together and support each other during times of grief.
3. It’s meant for people to tell their stories and hear the stories of others.
4. It provides the injured with support and resources.
5. It builds community and fosters a sense of belonging.
6. It helps people connect the dots about their own injuries or that of their loved ones.
We do not believe in, advocate, promote or support any sort of violence, illegal criminal behaviour or destructive revolutionary change. We do not believe, based on the lessons of history, that change through violence or force is a desirable foundation for the betterment of any country or society.
This Code of Conduct applies for all participants:
1. Treat others with dignity and respect at all times.
2. Do not use demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behaviour and speech.
3. Do not use these events for self-promotion or for financial gain.
4. Be aware of “agent provocateurs” who deliberately behave controversially in order to provoke argument. Do not engage with these people. Conduct yourself with restraint and dignity.
5. If you are approached by a representative of the media, be cautious about what you say. It is best to refer them to a CHA or VCC representative.
6. Do not damage property, either deliberately or recklessly.
7. Uphold the rights of all individuals, including the freedom of opinion, expression and peaceful assembly.
