LETTER: Maple Ridge man considers term ‘anti-vaxxer’ discriminatory

Local resident concerned about discrimination against unvaccinated people

Dear Editor,

Just wanted to say that the term “anti-vaxxers” is becoming a very derogatory/prejudiced term.

It lends itself to a type of modern-day discrimination against people who for one reason or another have chosen not to vaccinate at this time. Also many people have natural immunities against COVID and do not require a vaccine or would rather wait till the vaccination experiment has produced reliable data.

To my point, the PPC represents a growing movement of people who want to maintain the choice of what goes into their body and that should be respected especially by the media.

Philip Brekkaas, Maple Ridge
