Letter: Ironic outcome in next provincial election

Irony is the outcome of an event or action being the exact opposite to which one is working hard to prevent.

It appears a clear and strong motivator for the individuals to be not-vaccinated is the perception of government’s imposition of inappropriate interference with one’s individual rights and freedoms. Thus, these individuals refuse to vaccinate. This moral action which is a right of democracy yet not necessarily an ethical action, has and is reverberating within the large and tolerant population of Alberta.

The result in the next provincial election may be a resounding victory for a political party that more values the position of big government with reduced individual rights. If that should occur these non-vaccinated individuals can have a good look in the mirror and thank themselves. It would be ironic.
