ER Editor: Another unpleasant admission about Canada, this time the government of B.C. While this is linked to below, see this interesting and disturbing report, titled Are Canadians willing police ‘informers’?
The BC Government News twitter account is a very smooth affair, radiating caring and concern for everybody. Notice how the screenshot of the offending tweet below uses innocuous, helpful language, implying the SNITCH is just being a good person:
‘Tag a friend or family member who still needs their first dose and help them register here.’
Tagging actually means publicly outing them in an eternally-recorded digital medium. It also means that YOU get to decide if they should be vaccinated. This information still belongs in the digital hands of the government despite the tweet being deleted.
Canadian Government apologises after encouraging public to snitch on unvaccinated family members so they can be identified
THE DAILY EXPOSE
The British Columbia government has apologised after asking Canadians to snitch on their unvaccinated family members.
On Thursday, an official BC government Twitter account called on residents to tag their unvaccinated friends or family members in the replies. The tweet has since been deleted.
“Thank you! Next, let’s get to 80%! Tag a friend or family member who still needs their first dose and help them register here: gov.bc.ca/GetVaccinated,” read the tweet. (ER: At this link it says ‘File Not Found’. Saanich News has removed this page, as have other Black Press Media outlets who picked up this report.)
Despite the tweet’s deletion, an unknown number of people were publicly outed as unvaccinated in the replies.
According to Black Press Media, the BC government apologised for the incident saying that they will work to “ensure this does not happen again.”
A survey by Leger from 2020 found that 40% of Canadians were willing to snitch on their fellow citizens for not complying with COVID-19 measures.
In comparison, only 27% of Americans were willing to do the same when asked the same question.
Several places including London, Ontario have established COVID-19 snitch lines where residents can report others for breaking gathering limit rules or playing sports in parks.
In British Columbia, the City of Vancouver has a reporting system where residents can report house parties with 6 people or more and gatherings of 50 or more people.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)

Quebec has snitch lines. Report to the cops:
But, wait! Wayback Machine for that page shows many many hits in 2020, with a big decline from December 2020 and on into 2021:
Those hits are for what? People looking to snitch? Why the drop-off? Did the snitches all run out of neighbors to turn in?
