The family of a 4-year-old leukemia patient is furious after finding out they will be evicted from a Ronald McDonald House in Canada due to their unvaccinated status, according to a report from the Daily Caller.

What are the details?

Canadian parent Austin Furgason went viral after video showed him confronting a Ronald McDonald House administrator over the organization's policy on vaccinations.

According to local reports, the Ronald McDonald House of British Columbia and Yukon state that all guests and visitors to the house "must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19."

"These measures in addition to an abundance of sanitizer and kindness will help us ensure the safety of everyone at the house," the organization's website added.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the organization is enacting the mandate beginning on Jan. 17, followed by a two-week grace period in which guests and visitors can begin their vaccination series. All people ages five years and older will be required to get the vaccine in order to visit or stay with the organization.

Furgason added that the organization is evicting him and his family unless they comply with the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

In a widely viewed video shared on Twitter, Furgason was heard saying that the organization is set to evict the family in just a few short weeks if they do not comply with the vaccination mandate.

“Because we don’t have the vaccine, you’re going to throw us out in the snow with a few weeks' notice,” Furgason said. “Like this is some kind of crazy evil like I have never seen in my life.”

“Your conscience is seared,” Furgason told the manager in the video. “This is absolutely evil. ... Don’t think you guys are just going to get away with this, because we’re going to fight this and expose this to people.”

The Daily Mail reported that those who fail to comply with the new mandate will be required to leave the facility by Jan. 31, but will be offered "alternative accommodations" such as hotel rooms.

A letter detailing the new guideline added, "RMHBC recognizes and acts upon its responsibility to maintain a safe and healthy environment including taking every precaution reasonable in the circumstances to protect the health and safety of individuals attending at an RMHBC Facility, particularly given the vulnerable populations serviced by RMHBC and the significant risk of transmission of communicable disease in our congregate living settings."

Ronald McDonald House Charities did not respond to the Daily Caller's request for comment in time for publication.
