OTTAWA, ON — In a country-wide broadcast this week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denied ever forcing COVID-19 vaccinations on Canadian citizens and also reminded the general public that Canada has always been at war with Eurasia.
"Ingsoc…I mean…the Liberal Party, would like to remind Canadian residents that just as we have never had peace with Euraisia, I also never ever told the public they had to be vaccinated or lose their jobs," Trudeau announced over Canada's network of in-home telescreens. "Let this serve as a reminder that anyone found in disagreement with this proclamation will be remitted immediately to the Ministry of Love for reeducation!"
Canadians reacted to the message with mixed emotions. "I could have sworn he mandated that all truckers entering the Canadian border had to be vaccinated or they would lose their commercial drivers' license," said Ottawa citizen Winston Smith, who was never heard from again.
Trudeau went on to say, "While not forcing anyone to get vaccinated, I chose to make sure all the incentives and all the protections were there to encourage Canadians to get vaccinated. Now let us begin the Two Minutes Hate towards Eurasia and the unvaccinated!"
As of press time, Trudeau's image was seen projected on the sides of buildings with the message "Justin Is Watching" scrawled underneath. Liberal Thought Police were on hand to gently remind skeptical residents they must comply or be lovingly starved and tortured to bring their beliefs in line with the Party.
It's a serious medical emergency: you're minding your own business when you hear an opinion you slightly disagree with.
