A City of Busselton councillor has backed the calls for the Capes to abolish COVID-19 vaccine mandates following the State’s first special electors meeting on the topic. This week councillor Anne Ryan will put forward a motion at the City’s ordinary council meeting calling for her fellow councillors to abolish the controversial mandates surrounding COVID vaccines, citing a lack of proof the world is in a pandemic. Last month 450 community members called for the City of Busselton council to write to Premier Mark McGowan and other State Government ministers to abolish the mandates due to their negative impact of businesses. Among the six motions put forth by electors, the City was asked to advocate for the State Government remove volunteers from the vaccine mandate, provide clearer information of business obligations and liabilities around the mandates, to conduct a survey to understand the impact of the vaccine mandates and remove all vaccine and associated mandates. A sixth motion was also put forward for the City of Busselton to perform its own survey to assess the impacts of COVID-19 mandates on ratepayers. While the motions are set to be put to council at this week, it’s been revealed Cr Ryan has put forward an alternative motion demanding the State Government to immediately remove all vaccine mandates and declare the City of Busselton a “pro-choice” community. According to her alternative motion put forward, Cr Ryan claims there is no evidence a pandemic currently exists. “It is not our role to be a pseudo health department. Health is the role of the state,” her motion reads. “For the last two years we have been acting under instructions from the Premier under a state of emergency, however little evidence exists to substantiate the mandates. “We must resume the role that we were elected for, not kowtow to the Premier with ridiculous rules that make no sense and are crippling our business and private businesses and tearing families apart.” Cr Ryan’s alternative motion has been opposed by the City’s officer recommendations. The City of Busselton council meeting agenda also revealed while no one spoke in objection to the special elctors meeting motions, the City has since received opposition via emails. Councillors will debate the motions and what steps the City will take in response to the meeting demands at Wednesday’s council meeting from 5.30pm.
