Canadians are Effectively being Kidnapped into Isolation Sites

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on February 1, 2021

The politicians and political staffers who came up with the idea to stick air travelers in quarantine hotels for COVID-19 testing and “isolation sites” for positive cases, seemed at first to be just extremely bureaucratic with their unreasonable measures, but through the implementation of the isolation policies, they have become downright authoritarian.

Yesterday Red Deer resident Rebekah McDonald posted a tearful video after she had seen her son detained at the Calgary Airport and loaded into a van to be brought to an isolation centre.

McDonald was at the airport to pick up her son after returning from Phoenix, Arizona but was unable to reconnect with him because supposedly her son had taken the “wrong COVID-19 test” which for some reason required him to be placed in an isolation centre without having been tested for COVID. 

McDonald said in the video:

They are saying it’s not accurate and they are wanting to take him to a quarantine facility. They won’t let me talk to him. They won’t let me see him. They won’t come and talk to me. The border patrol services say they have nothing to do with it – they won’t tell me who has to do with it…They say he doesn’t have a choice, that it’s the law. They say I don’t have the right to talk to him. They are taking him against my will and his will and I’m not okay with it. I don’t know what to do about it and I don’t know where I’m supposed to find him.

This has happened before in a similar fashion in Edmonton when Pastor Chris Matthews’ wife was detained for having gotten the wrong COVID-19 test when she was in Dallas, Texas. 

Supposedly all returning travels should be isolated for three days in a hotel pending results from a COVID-19 test and should be free to go home to be self-isolated for another 14 days.

Nobody is supposed to be further segregated into a special COVID-19 isolation facility unless they tested positive in the three-day test, although it seems like in the case of McDonald and Matthew’s loved ones they are being slotted right into sites like a couple of criminals trying to jump the border to intentionally infect the country. 

Example of hotels being used as temporary isolation sites.

There are no possible reason people being brought to these isolation sites, which are sounding more and more like political prisons, should have Canadian health officials blocking communications between them and their families, and not providing information on where they are being held. This is all starting to sound like how the Soviet NKVD would behave when dealing with citizens.

The way health officials and law enforcement are operating these sites and the way the rules are enforced has caused them to effectively take part in kidnapping Canadian citizens.

Getting the “wrong test” is not grounds to capture people and hold them in undisclosed locations away from their families. Even prisoners are allowed to call people and have people know where they are located and how they are being treated.


Contrast this with when people were flying into Canada from Wuhan China and not a single person could be confirmed to have even been given a COVID-19 test even if they had symptoms. 

It feels as if the Canadian government is simply trying to shock Canadians and try and push the notion that their authoritarian actions reflect how serious the pandemic currently is, even though air travel remains a tiny minority of where COVID-19 infections are caused.

It’s insane we are in a day and age where the Canadian government needs to be reminded that kidnapping innocent people is not an ok thing to do, no matter how righteous they pretend to be or however many times they say ‘health and safety’ to justify their actions.

    You all voted this moron in. You deserve it

      Actually people in Alberta DID NOT VOTE A SINGLE LIBERAL IN …
      Which may be why it is happening here a week before it is even suppose to start…

      Well, the elections that used Dominion system were rigged. I doubt the majority of Canadians (no matter how brainwashed they are) voted for the tyrannical imbecile.

    It has begun. When will they begin taking people who test positive within Canada who have not traveled? When will they begin to take people because they had contact with someone who has tested positive? When will Canadians stop getting tested or seek medical help for fear of being taken? When will begin to use covid as an excuse just to remove the people who question? Think about this

    One thing you can be sure of. Some pIace, at some point, some IiberaI MP or his friends got a contract of some sort to run these "faciIities." You can be sure they wiII want to capitoIize on the windfaII whiIe they can… stay home.
    It isn’t a coincidence that the peopIe making COVID out to be the new "BIack Death" are the same peopIe making the most money off of it. The working foIks….just have to bear the brunt; and pay up.

    The Liberal’s new COVID gulags being put into action. And the police effectively being turned into STASI

    Assumption is that covid quarantine hotels are safe. No more than long-term care ho especially. Ontario had one, secunity guard had covid and 70 residents texted and restarted their quarantine. Terdo is up the Cree on this one.

    The time has come for a collective action against those who continue to strip all Canadians of their most basic human rights. It reminds me of Hitler how he labeled Jewish People as the problem when it was him and his Regime that was. The German people allowed Hitler to do what he did without questioning what he was really doing and similarly as we are allowing the same type of tyranny to exist and thrive without questions or appropriate action. We must gather all the like minded organizations to ask all of their respective followers to work together to make a difference. We can do this by asking all of the followers to reach out to all the local businesses that are being forced to close without the proper financial compensation to help them survive the mandatory closings imposed by our Government. We should plan same day openings with hundreds of businesses and their customers should be flooding them with business at the same time. This will avoid any fines as the Police do not have enough Officers to be able to fine hundreds of businesses opening at the same time. Even if they fine you no one should ever pay it and everyone fine should take it to court and you will win as there is overwhelming evidence to prove this is a Plandemic not a Pandemic. None of the customers should wear masks or follow social distancing as we know it is all B.S.. We should help keep our friends and local businesses from losing everything they have worked for and the employees from losing their jobs forever. We are all Humans and what they are doing is against all of Humanity and we must not let this continue as this is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Canada was done over 5 decades ago. We are just waking up to the collectivist’s idea of utopia now that the majority is directly affected by these extreme measures. The insatiable hunger for power Trudeau and his globalist sycophants crave simply show that the useful idiots have held control since at least the 1970’s and were just waiting for an opportunity to ‘ensure the safety and security of the people’. Lenin’s soft appeal indeed: the outstretched hand of Socialism wrapped in the iron fist of Communism. Remember also the glorious words of chairman Mao. "Communism is not peaceful. It is the violent and oppressive tool which we use to crush our enemies."

    I still can’t believe this is actually happening in my country. It is absolutely despicable and people we better start organizing to put a stop to this criminal treatment of ourselves. So utterly disgusted with what i am reading as each day passes. This government is inept, corrupt, and horribly dishonest. But now they are going way too far.

    Pastor Chris Mathis wife. Not Matthews. Her name is Nikki.

    Wrong. Just wrong! I am doing my best to spread the word in a effort to get Canadians riled up enough to yell loud and long!
