COVID-19: Unvaccinated nurses’ clinic in Kamloops evicted by building owner
A private health clinic that was started by unvaccinated nurses last week in Kamloops has been evicted by the owner of the building.
In a Facebook post, Ezra Wellness in Kamloops says it’s looking for support to find another place to operate.
“If you have or know of some office space available, with like minded compassionate owners, please let me know so we can land and move forward peacefully,” Glenn Aalderink, the nurse who started the clinic, said in the post.
The post said when the provincial government ordered all health care workers to be vaccinated, he “moved on” and created an alternative clinic.
“We have a no sublease clause in place and this is not an allowable option,” said Shaw.
“With each of our commercial tenants, we have a process we follow to vet and approve all tenants. Part of that due diligence process is to ensure all tenants are able to meet the legal, financial, and insurance covenants on the commercial space. Without having gone through this process and because we have a no sublease clause in place, we cannot reasonably give approval on a lease.”
Aalderink, who is a member of the Canadian Frontline Nurses, a controversial group that staged “freedom rallies” against vaccines and masks at hospitals, told local radio station CHNL last week that the clinic was started on a volunteer basis but that the plan was to eventually bring in a fee for clients accessing their medical and wellness advice.
