Earlier Friday, Nikki Mathis was put into quarantine by government officials at a state-run isolation facility upon her arrival at Calgary International Airport, despite having tested negative prior to her flight. According to her husband Chris, Mathis was threatened with arrest if she refused to comply. The Buffalo Tribune obtained exclusive footage from Nikki Mathis via Chris, showing her room in the facility. Mathis says she feels "locked-up," and concedes that while it's a "nice hotel room," she'd rather "have her own bedroom [back home]."
Mathis notes in the video how there's a guard staffed outside her door, preventing her from leaving.
Member of Parliament David Yurdiga has called the situation deplorable, stating that "this incident goes against everything that makes us Canadians. We should demand far better from our government; to not even know where our loved ones are being held is a both a breach of government trust and a massive instance of state overreach."
Soon after, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms announced its intent to sue the federal government, calling Mathis' forced confinement unconstitutional and demanding her immediate release. The organization subsequently decided to begin legal proceedings against the federal government.
Kenney has denied that the AHS was involved:
