(Natural News) A major newspaper in Canada is requiring potential applicants to be fully vaccinated in order to apply for a job opening.
The Globe and Mail posted a job opening on July 15 looking for a full-time editorial reporter for its Ottawa bureau. The job involves “covering federal politics and national news,” and requires applicants to have a “strong capacity to speak French.”
“To be considered for this position, applicants must have experience covering daily news assignments and a proven interest in political coverage. They must also have the ability to develop contacts and to elevate our coverage with enterprise work. As always, the goal is memorable journalism,” stated the job posting.
“We are looking for a reporter who is energetic versatile, innovative and curious. The successful candidate should also be an excellent team player as they will be expected to work with reporters at the Ottawa Bureau other areas of the newsroom and across the country.”
The Canadian newspaper’s job opening was “an opportunity for a driven and ambitious journalist who wants to play a key role in our political coverage.”
Those who wish to take part in this, however, need to get their respective Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines first.
“All offers of employment with the Globe and Mail are conditional upon the candidate being fully vaccinated. To prove they are fully vaccinated, all new hires will be required to provide evidence by emailing a copy of their vaccine dose administration receipt(s) to Human Resources prior to their start date.”
According to the job posting, “fully vaccinated” pertains to “someone who has received the full series of a vaccine, or a combination of vaccines, accepted by the government of Canada … and has received the last dose at least 14 days prior to their start date.” Currently, the COVID-19 vaccines by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen are approved for use in the country.
Applicants seeking vaccine exemptions “based on one or more of the protected grounds in the Human Rights Code” must lodge their requests to the publication’s human resources department for approval.
“If the accommodation request is not approved and the candidate is not fully vaccinated, any offer of employment will be revoked.”
“Dedicated to inclusion” yet excluding the unvaccinated
The newspaper’s job posting reiterated its dedication to “diversity and inclusion in the workplace,” even though its requirement for applicants to be vaccinated excludes a sector of the population.
“The Globe and Mail is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible work environment, where all employees feel valued, respected and supported. We believe this strengthens our business and our journalism. We welcome and encourage applications from individuals from all groups regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, age and physical ability.” (Related: Lawfare with Tom Renz: Courtney Flynn says woke makeup giant Sephora pushing RACISM under the guise of “diversity and inclusion” – Brighteon.TV.)
Seemingly in line with woke policies in other leftist establishment, the job posting echoed themes of inclusion – with special emphasis on “women, aboriginal peoples, members of visible minorities and persons with disabilities” as mandated by Canada’s federal contractors program. The proportion of applicants in these four categories were also tracked, added the job description.
Based on the job description it posted, the Globe and Mail appears to echo the antagonistic stance harbored by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau against the unvaccinated.
Subsidies received by the newspaper from the Liberal government in Ottawa seemed to back this up. In 2019, the Globe and Mail received more than CA$2 million ($1.57 million) in untendered contracts from the federal government. The following year, it asked Ottawa for a bailout.
Prior to the 2021 federal elections in Canada, Trudeau’s government gave out more than CA$60 million ($46.97 million) to media outlets in the country. While the recipients of this money were not named, the Globe and Mail was reportedly among them.
