Roman Baber Commits to Firing Dr. Theresa Tam If He Becomes Prime Minister

Former Ontario MPP and Conservative leadership contender, Roman Baber, in a recent email to Conservative Party members pledged to “fire Dr. Tam on day 1” if he becomes the next prime minister of Canada. 

Baber in his email said:

On September 2, 2020, Dr. Theresa Tam told Canadians to wear a mask during intimacy. That day, she lost any credibility she had left, but Justin Trudeau and many Conservatives are still afraid to challenge her. Not me. 

As Prime Minister, I will fire Dr. Tam on my first day in office!

Baber as one of the more socially and fiscally liberal leadership candidates has been leaning into his opposition to COVID-19 restrictions and mandates, which he became well-known for after he was removed from the Ontario PC Party for openly challenging Premier Doug Ford’s draconian approach to public health in January of 2021.

In Baber’s short email to CPC members he also stated a few other areas of public health policy he would seek to change.

Baber stated that: 

I will withdraw Canada’s participation in the new WHO Pandemic Treaty.

I will scrap and outlaw all of Justin’s unscientific and discriminatory mandates and passports.

I will get accountability after establishing a Judicial Inquiry to investigate Public Health decisions and the influence of foreign interests, pharmaceutical companies and their lobbyists on pandemic decision-making.

Although Baber is not considered to be likely to win the CPC leadership race he has been helping his chances by distinguishing himself on the issue of opposing COVID regulations as he has a solid record on the issue, unlike the other leadership candidates who are perceived late to the party. 

Hopefully, Baber can become a more significant player in the leadership race, as it would help to further mainstream a strong stance against overbearing public health measures in the Conservative Party.

Even if Roman Baber does not become the CPC leader it seems like he is growing on party members, making him an obvious choice for a cabinet position in the next Conservative government, if the CPC manages to beat the Trudeau Liberals next election.
