Gritty Teacher Refuses to Disclose Vaccine Status, Asserts Rights & Wins Back Job

Join us for this special interview with Deanna Gontard, a gritty and dedicated teacher who refused to bow down to the York Region District School Board’s unconstitutional and unlawful vaccine mandate. With job loss a reality, Deanna stood firm on her convictions, the law and help from activist Jody Ledgerwood and her Know Your Rights package to protect her private medical information.

Deanna courageously refused to declare her vaccine status and came out a winner earning back her teaching job after initially being put on unpaid leave.

Follow Bright Light News to find out about Deanna and Jody’s upcoming workshop.

  1. this is blatant oppression just like Hitler in the holocaust as this precious French teacher said. Letting the government inject substances into us just because there’s a ‘global pandemic’ is absurd. Speak up for your rights or die! Mark Loya can eat my nuts

  2. I don’t believe Mark Loya. He put the same email up here so many times just to influence people because he is the supposed expert and he’s putting the French teacher in her place. Her story rings true. His does not. His story is just the media making something up to try to influence a lot of people.
    Have courage my friends. We can win over this totalitarian new regime in Canada but we all have to be determined and firm.

  5. Thank you for allowing me the time and space to express my opinion and beliefs.

    “Covid -19”, which originated back in the fall of 2019 in China and for many of the older people here in Canada, who have paid attention to these world-wide pandemics….we have formed our own views. Yes…the majority of these viruses have come from China…however, it is not fair or right to condeme their people or country. This was not deliberate on their part…most likely, at best, all that we can hope and ask for is an open and honest conversation about how it began and to coordinate a worldwide defense for the next one. We are all humans fighting on behalf of all life here on Earth.
    Myself, I only know, what I have read and evaluated as true to my way of thinking. I do believe that, when someone is “speaking to the masses”….at times, the message may be subjective and misleading and for many reasons as well.

    Some of the “facts” that I believe are,
    “Covid -19” first showed up in that fish market in the female worker…she felt that she may have picked up this virus when she used the bathroom….this I think was back in Oct. 2019. Ontario’s 1st case was found at Sunnybrook Hospital approx. January 22nd 2020.
    From that day up to today….our province has recorded 621,000 positive cases.
    This figure represents only 5 to 6 per cent of Ontario’s population….and only a very small per cent of all these 631,000 people have been seriously affected or died. I do comprehend the Hurtful Tragedy Of Losing A Loved One to this Ugly Virus and Understand Your Sadness And Pain….(I lost a co-worker to this virus.) It is strange that, the normally high rates of people getting the flu are non-existent today and last year as well…so the mask, social distancing and washing our hands is all we had to do to make the annual flu disappear?
    Some exaggerations that I believe are
    “Look-out the numbers are sky-rocketing”.
    How? The numbers went from approx. 250-300 back in July/August to 600-700 in November (let us keep in mind that our province chose to open up almost everything.. was anyone expecting the numbers to keep heading downward?)
    If they were above 1,000 per day, then I may agree. Ontario did have a top of 4,800 in 1 day….and over 2,000 per day for possibly 3 or 4 months continuous.
    I do believe that, If You Have Underlying Health Issues….then For Sure You Should Take The Jab. I feel so strongly that, I Won’t Get Or Give The “Covid” To Anyone That, I have said to my work…”If I contract this virus (let alone, give it to anybody) that, I will gladly leave my employment…all you have to do is, ask me to resign and I will”. Unfortunately, they forced me to resign and I Treasured My Job.
    I read how Ontario had a total of maybe 64 children (under the age of 19 or so) have ended up in the hospital with “Covid -19”.
    Then they go on to explain it that out of these 64 kids….20 – 30 of these kids were actually in the hospital for other reasons…broken arm/falls and while there, they tested them for the virus and found out that they had it…which is
    Very Misleading. Then I read how More Children have been hit with other Serious side effects due to the taking these vaccines. I am not a Doctor Or Scientist, I am only me…I person with one opinion about what I feel is Better For My Health…The Health Of Others and what I feel is My Right To Chose.
    If I am wrong about any of my statements…Please, I hope that you will forgive me and also correct me. We can only learn more by speaking truthfully about what we feel in our hearts and minds. Thank you. -Alfie

    1. Asymptomatic is a term used in the medical field in regards to whether or not you are experiencing ‘symptoms’ ie (with Wuhan-flu) those could be loss of smell, low grade fever, general fatigue, cough. Having a low viral count (indicating the China-virus has entered your body) will not trigger symptoms until your viral count rises and then you start to experience those symptoms. Unless you have been vaccinated, in which case, you may not feel those symptoms even though you are out in public buying food at the store, mingling with coworkers et el with a high viral load with its associated transmissibility (as per the CDC’s own admission). The governments ‘vaccine’ to this point seems to be a failure and since they put ALL of their eggs in one basket and never bothered to codevelop any OTHER types of vaccines or treatments because Faucci assured them his mRNA was the miracle they needed, Uncle Sam is scared sh*tless because they have no other answer 2 years into it…..oooops

  6. Hello Kelli, I am a mother of a 1 year old boy and I am concerned about vaccination. I would like to know which schools are giving the excemp in Ontario and what kind of forms.

    Thank you in advance
    Alejandra

  7. Do you not understand that unvaccinated does not mean sick and contagious? Just because a teacher is unvaccinted, they do not pose a threat to their students. They test several times a week (in case they are asymptomatic) and stay home like everyone else when they get sick. Vacvinated teachers can also infect students…and let’s not talk about the obvious. The greatest potential threat to infection is other students. Think before you type!

    1. Lets not mention the covid vaccines are killing and maiming people at a rate weve never seen before. More negative effects and deaths than all other vaccines in history combined.

      1. This is all fake news. The people and groups who perpetuate these lies have anterior motives and they are ALWAYS monetary.

        Here is a letter from the York School Board…

      1. A typical vaccine might but these don’t. If you actually listened to what you have been told, these vaccines are only designed to lessen the symptoms, not prevent infection or the transmission. In a highly vaccinated country like Israel the majority of people hospitalized have been fully vaccinated, and they also die. That’s why they are on their 3 rd booster shots and soon to start their 4th. It only provides short term protection, 4 to 6 months before it fades. Gibraltar has one of the highest rates of vaccinated with one of the highest rates of infection. That blows your theory out the window. Please pay attention to the world around you instead of just looking out your window if you wish to stay informed about the subject.

    2. Virus theory is full of flaws and gaps in science! Virus is fake and nonexistent!
      Wake up! Pandemic was proclaimed illegally, actually criminally! All this nonsense about symptomatic and asymptomatic infections is just retards blabbing…
      Look around people you know! How many died? No child died from it, but now we’re supposed to vaccinate them, although they have zero risk?!
      Wake up!

  8. Retired, supply teacher. They are so desperate for teachers they looked the other way or is this fake?
    I would say it is fake, students have to disclose their vax record for years or they were sent home why not teachers? Great double standard…people get your shot, save a hospital visit, stop this freedom and rights crap for the good of everybody!

    1. Freedom and rights crap???? You are a sheep and will regret the day people like us give into this medical tyranny…. Live free or die

      1. Dying on your own time but don’t take anyone else with you. Has no one learned the lesson from the Spanish flu. Read up on what we had to do then which is similar to stop that killer. Too bad you still get free hospitalization. And if she contracts covid-19 and passes it on to students I hope there will be serious consequences for willfully and with malice endanger the lives of her students. Where is the freedom when you’re lying in the hospital bed waiting for someone else to die before you get an ICU unit like what happened out west.

        1. This is not comparable at all to the 1918 Spanish Flu. There was a paper from 2008 with Fauci and two others where they concluded that the majority of deaths that occured in 1918 was from bacterial pneumonia not a virus. Look it up. The other thing you need to contemplate before judging this woman and making comments of her free hospitalization who is standing up for your freedom, is that this is not a vaxxine. No viral fragment in it. The efficacy is alarmingly low. So people that are double jabbed are transmissible and are getting sick??. They have never done this type of MRNA on humans.ADE ( anitbody dependant enhancement) is a very real side effect . Ask Dr, Robert Malone the creator of MRNA.
          So yes people should have a choice. Especially when there are more deaths and adverse affects from this “jab” than all combined over the last 30 years . That is fact. For a virus that has a 99.7% survival rate. The cure should never be worse than the disease.
          I urge you to look into this for yourself and don’t gobble up the info on the news. The headlines are orchestrated, the journalists have scripts. Look into who owns the media , who sponsors. MMMh the vaxxine companies. Weird. You wonder why the most credible virologists, epdiemologists, Md’s are and have been censored this whole time?? No room for debate over a “novel” virus.?
          Students you say . They are not at risk. I mean you really need to look at the actual stats of all of this .
          Instead you will put blame and hate toward your fellow man/woman when you really need to look at who you are trusting and why?? I mean they told us DDT was good at one point, asbestos, GMO’s.
          Trying to say natural immunity isnt as good as a manmade concoction? That is absurd. If you had covid and recovered naturally that is the best form of defense. Thats just biology, immunology ..whatever science 101.
          Why did Turdeau purchase 400 million doses? Every shot is worth 105.00. Why does Pfizer not have to release results from trials now until 2050? Also we are one of the 9 countries to make a contract with Pfizer. If we do not fulfill , Pfizer now has the authority to cease assets. Who agreed and voted on that? Moderna first time ever making a vaxxine. I am sorry that you don’t understand that the people who have died from covid have been from 2 , 3 or even 4 co-morbidities. That directly from CDC. No different than the flu. Oddly we had no flu in 2020. Don’t get me started on the PCR test that has about a 5 % accuracy. We use a threshhold of 33-40 CT’s here in Canada . Which you will find it in everything. Why other countries banned the test. The creator of the test , Kerry Mullis, stated it should never be used for virus detection. It’s use was for forensics. Why ppl literally tested fruit etc to show how ridiculous this test is.
          If they cared about health they would be speaking of things that boost your immunity because that is how our bodies are designed.
          We have ruined so many ppl’s lives over this. Suicides and overdoses are thru the roof. Businesses losing their shirts while the billionaires have increased. The Costco’s and Walmarts with 300 pl every half an hour but not one covid case and shut down??? Strange. People who have passports and want to freely divulge their medical status can go to restaurants sit down hav a beer but those that beleive in medical freedom and don’t want tyranny can only go sit in a Macdonalds? That just makes sooooo much sense. lol
          Division is insane and all by design . Media is great at causing this division.
          I mean there are ppl paralyzed, bells palsy., miscarriages , strokes all from jabs and ppl think they are making it up ??. How unhuman do you have to be to not have compassion and to listen with a open heart. Anyway please do some research. Read some pier reviewed medical reports. Look at stats. Stop watching the news.

        2. Spanish flu was in 1917 after war caused major famine and happened in population fed by military rations! Don’t try to understand anything veiled by history! You’re retarded so badly that you missed entire social phenomenon of Cancel Culture!
          Hospitals are empty! Understaffed because of sabotage of scheduling!
          Do research you imbecile!

        3. This is just more false news perpetuated by fake media who are making money off of people who will read their fringe news and believe it.

          Here is a letter I received after I searched for answers…

      2. What is shocking is that your teaching our children. A fool willing to give away rights and freedoms in exchange for following a dictatorial mandate based on untruths and medical misinformation.
        Many a degree and certificate adorn the walls of simple-minded home owners.
        God help us.

    2. Not true. Kids without vaccines can go to school in Ontario. A few forms to fill out but by no means do they “have” to be vaccinated to attend school.

      1. @Kelly
        Nice to meet someone else who’s done their homework. You are absolutely right, children can attend school without being vaccinated (most parents are not informed that this is an option). It doesn’t have to be a medical or religious exemption, it’s called a conscience belief exception. The parents fill out a form (I believe that the parents have to get the form notarized), watch a 25 mins video about the benefits of vaccination and then they are given an exemption certificate. Easy as that!!

      1. Justin,

        You are frightened so you gravitate towards reading about all the reasons you should not take the vaccine. We all understand your fear. But, we also have read and listened and watched numerous sources about why the vaccine is safe and made the decision to do what makes he most medical sense-take the vaccine.

        Where do you get your news? From fringe sources? These sources have also been investigated and have been found to have skin in the game (making money off of convincing people the medical and anecdotal evidence is false). This article is just another example. The Ms. Gontard interview is full of falsehoods.

        Here is a response from the York school board…

        1. If its so safe how do you explain the 18 thousand + deaths reported to vaers? Why don’t you watch testimonies from INDIVIDUALS who have been injured? Go and tell them its safe and effective.

          Whether you think its helping or not, coercing people into getting it by threatening job loss, travel rights and access to basic services is wrong. If you think its so safe and effective then by all means, get in line for your endless boosters. But don’t pressure the entire population of the world into getting it.

    3. You can believe what you want but the obvious remains … the vaccinated are getting Covid too, and dying from it. The immunity from the vaccine wears off incredibly quickly! Stop believing what the mainstream media is telling you, it’s a lie!!!

      1. And what media do you consider legitimate? The ones that are so far to the right that you can smell a rat? What makes these sites any more legitimate to you? You think they are in it for the good of humankind?
        C’mon-you don’t think these organizations are not making huge profits off of spreading false news? If not, there is the hull ability in all of this.

        This sub teacher story is just another example of false news.

        Here is a letter I received when I asked the York school board to respond to this video…

    4. You are obviously unaware or simply do NOT want to accept the VAERS report of the thousands of people that have died from the vaccines, and the over 400,000 that have suffered serious and debilitating side effects. So if you want to get the jab, go fir it, but I will not subject myself to this experiment . Big Pharma, Bill Gates, and Fauci are NOT your friends. Wake up!!

      1. That’s how you get through life…being vulgar when someone disagrees with you?

        You think your opinion matters one iota to anyone when you do not have the capacity to respond to someone who disagrees with you with civility.

        Pathetic.
