SLOBODIAN: Liberals must come clean over fired Chinese scientists

How did one of the scientist spies manage to smuggle samples of the Ebola and Henipah viruses out of the National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg and ship them to the China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV)?




How did two Chinese scientists, connected to a military-operated lab in Communist China that conducts bioweapons research, get security clearance to work in a top-secret Level-4 pathogens lab in Winnipeg?

Who in the Public Health Agency of Canada approved the clearance of this husband-and-wife team? And were they under any pressure to do so? Or is Canada always just sloppy like that?

How did one of the scientist spies manage to smuggle samples of the Ebola and Henipah viruses out of the National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg and ship them to the China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV)?

Is anyone certain that’s all they smuggled out of Canada’s high-security lab?

What did the RCMP find in their investigation into these two operators they escorted out of the NML in July 2019?

Are the RCMP still conducting an indepth investigation? Has anyone put a leash on them?

What consequences have these two reprehensible characters faced other than getting fired this January?

How much collaboration has there been between Canada and China with research into deadly viruses and pathogens?

Why has the Public Health Agency refused to release uncensored internal documents?

The answers to these questions must be extraordinarily damning considering the Trudeau Liberal government’s refusal to let Canadians in on their secrets. 

Who exactly are the Liberals protecting by refusing to disclose these details?

Be assured, it isn’t you, no matter how much crippling hardship you endured from COVID-19 that almost certainly was engineered in, and leaked out of, the WIV these two clowns frequently visited during their tenure with the Winnipeg lab.

That the Liberals won’t hand over documents on the RCMP raid and other information regarding these Chinese scientists raises alarming red flags.

This runs so much deeper than the standard smug, condescending refusal by the prime minister and his henchmen to answer questions.

The Liberals are arrogantly defying a House order, according to Blacklock’s Reporter.

On June 2 the Commons voted 179-149 to order the release of records concerning what transpired in the NML concerning Chinese research scientists Xiangguo Qiu, her husband, Keding Chang.

A special committee demanded to know why Qui and Chang were escorted out of the NML in July 2019 – four months after one of them shipped samples of the Ebola and Henipah viruses to the WIV.

“The minority Liberal government has refused to comply with an order of the House,” said Conservative MP John Williamson (New Brunswick Southwest).  

Foreign Minister Marc Garneau explanation was pathetic and an insult to our democratic, albeit rapidly disintegrating under this Liberal regime, process.

Garneau said the cabinet had a “responsibility as a government” not to discuss the RCMP raid or the firing of Qui and Chang, because of “security requirements.”

Suddenly the Liberals are concerned about security.

The disappointing opposition cannot afford to be as weak as it has been in standing up to these Liberals. Hold them accountable, make them answer, do whatever you have to do. Just man up!

Canadians also need to know if these Liberal fans of the Communist Chinese regime directly funded any research at the WIV, especially considering the most recent revelation about what it was up to. 

Chinese Communist Party military scientist Zhou Yusen Zhou filed a patent on behalf of the People’s Liberation Army, for a COVID vaccine in February 2020 – before it was declared a global pandemic. 

Why had the Chinese already been working on a vaccine for a deadly virus engineered, almost certainly, in one of their labs?

Like Qui and Chang, Zhou had strong ties to the WIV.

Canadians need to know if Canada and China are still collaborating on deadly pathogen research. Are there any other Qui and Changs conducting similar ‘research’ in Canada. 

If so, that’s a violation of so many things, starting with an allegiance to Canada. 

Again, who exactly are these devious Liberals protecting by clinging to these fabricated security requirements?

    Not only did Zhou Yousen Zhou file a patent for a vaccine before COVID was even officially declared a pandemic, she was LEAD RESEARCHER IN THE BIOWEAPONS/BIOENGINEERING DIVISION OF THE PEOPLE’S LIBERATION ARMY OF CHINA. I say “was” because, for any still honest and uncorrupted intel officials who would like to interrogate her, too bad, she’s now DEAD. This, together with the fact that COVID’S DNA sequence of CGG CGG has never been observed to occur in nature but is used in gain-of-function and other lab research all the time, seems like pretty damning evidence that COVID was deliberately developed AS A BIOWEAPON. The only question that remains to be answered is whether its release in late 2019 was deliberate or accidental before China had managed to inoculate its own population.

    If our own leaders were involved in this at ANY LEVEL, which would not be in the least surprising, then we MUST march on Ottawa as well as every single provincial capital and demand that every single one of them be arrested for crimes against humanity and possibly also even genocide. Given the particular demographic that this virus hits, it’s possible that its intentional use as a bioweapon could be considered genocide with collateral damage. I’m not a lawyer so I don’t know this for sure, but it sure as hell would be worth finding out.

    US is not interested in the truth, then the facts there own money, helped pay to have these gains of function experiments right in the US. Could it be Trudeau’s confusing love for China hinges more on the fact his secrets would be out in the open, for all Canadians to see concerning Covid

    If they come clean I say they’ll have proven they’re complicit in crimes against humanity and election fraud…these types know that and they’ll literally kill to conceal.

    How the United States of America hasn’t caught on that Canada was involved also is strange. Unless Trudeau – Biden & the Chinese have a secret deal ? This is way more then what the RCMP are saying it’s a “policy breach” way more.

    Must be embarrassing to the Prime Minister that one of the Chinese Scientists was awarded The Order of Canada. By the former Governor General of Canada. Kind of taints the appeal of that award for a Canadian.

OPEN LETTER: Health care workers against mandatory vaccinations

The letter was signed by 3,544 health care workers including 73 physicians, 1,111 nurses, 227 paramedics and thousands of allied health professionals, pharmacists, dentists, lab workers, psychologists and counselling professionals, medical students, AHS administrative and support staff and other health care professionals.




An open letter penned by Alberta Health Services (AHS) workers was sent to AHS on Monday by Calgary constitutional lawyer Carol Crosson.

The letter was signed by 3,544 health care workers including 73 physicians, 1,111 nurses, 227 paramedics and thousands of allied health professionals, pharmacists, dentists, lab workers, psychologists and counselling professionals, medical students, AHS administrative and support staff and other health care professionals.

Dear Dr. Verna Yiu:

This open letter is in response to your announcement of mandatory full vaccination for all AHS staff by Oct 31, 2021. We represent a wide range of vaccinated and unvaccinated health care professionals from multiple disciplines, who are deeply concerned about these mandatory vaccinations.

There are many reasons why we stand against mandatory vaccination and highlight some of them below. These concerns are supported by peer-reviewed publications and statements by established organizations:

• These mRNA vaccines have not been proven to prevent disease uptake nor disease transmission supported by the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report August 6, 2021 / 70(31);1059-1062 (among other reports) where it is stated “Real-time RT-PCR Ct values in specimens from 127 fully vaccinated patients (median = 22.77) were similar to those among 84 patients who were unvaccinated, not fully vaccinated, or whose vaccination status was unknown (median = 21.54)”. Asymptomatic unvaccinated people have never been proven to be more infectious or transmit more disease than vaccinated individuals.

• The overall survival rate from COVID is approximately 99.7% and varies by age and underlying health status.

• The vaccine is showing weakened efficacy after only a few months. AHS’s own data shows currently approximately 25% of all new cases are in fully vaccinated patients and over 18% of hospitalizations are also fully vaccinated with percentages increasing as weeks go by.

• The United Kingdom and Israel – two highly vaccinated countries have extremely high percentages of hospitalized patients being fully vaccinated. Indeed, the Israeli Public Health Department recently estimated the efficacy of the Pfizer vaccine had fallen to 39% against the Delta variant and another recent study from the Mayo clinic had similar numbers at 42%

• Historically, scientific consensus has been that natural immunity is superior to vaccine immunity. Many health care workers are already Covid recovered and immune. What evidence does AHS have for mandatory vaccines in those individuals?

As front-line health care workers, we have witnessed serious adverse events, including deaths, that were temporally, closely associated from the administration of these vaccines.

• As per VAERS data (US vaccine injury database), Aug. 27, 2021, at least 650,077 people in the US have been injured and 13,911 people have died soon after the administration of the Covid vaccine. These numbers could actually be 10-100x higher as a Harvard study showed only 1-10% of all adverse events are actually recorded. The Harvard study’s findings are corroborated by our experience that the vast majority of temporally related adverse events are not being correlated and reported by healthcare workers. If we don’t correlate these temporally related events and report them, the data will never be there to accurately assess causality and truly ensure safety, which is the bedrock to obtaining proper informed consent.

We believe that the proposed vaccine mandate is contrary to section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms “freedom of conscience and religion” as well as section 7, “the right to life, liberty and the security of the person and the right to not be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.”

Based on our experience, the above arguments (plus others not listed in this letter) and our evaluation of the current literature, we decisively conclude that we are in strong opposition to mandatory vaccination. As of Nov 1, 2021, or earlier, AHS’s decision to implement such a mandate will prevent many dedicated health care workers and other AHS staff from performing the jobs they have done valiantly over the past eighteen months. This will put our currently severely strained health care system under further undue and needless pressure and put more Albertans at risk due to our inability to provide care for our patients. We respectfully request that the vaccine mandate be rescinded immediately so that AHS Health care workers can continue to provide care for Albertans.

AHS investigating Western Standard for restrictions, vaxport non-compliance

The AHS employee responded, “Some of these [regulations] are good, and some of these are, you know…”




Update from the Publisher

This isn’t a regular news story since its about ourselves; so rather than drink our own bathwater and send this to one of our reporters, I’ve decided to publish this as an update from the publisher.

At 10:25 a.m. MST, the Western Standard received a telephone call from Alberta Health Services (AHS) on our office line. The AHS official — whom I will not name — dialed through to speak with yours truly.

He informed me that AHS had received a complaint that the Western Standard was not complying with government-ordered restrictions and vaccine passports. I responded plainly: “That is correct.”

He was silent for a moment, not quite knowing how to respond to my admission of guilt. He inquired further, asking the same question another way.

Please forgive me the indulgence of quoting myself.

“I take the health of my employees and those around us seriously. I and my employees take COVID seriously. I would be happy to review any recommendations that you may have for us, but I do not recognize the right of the government to tell me how I must run my own office space. Any government official wishing to enter the property must produce a warrant, otherwise they will not be permitted entry.

“Western Standard employees are free men and free women, and as such, I trust them to make responsible decisions about their own risk tolerances. Any Western Standard employee that feels that they would be unsafe in the office has only to inform me and we will make reasonable accommodations.”

The AHS employee was a perfect gentleman and handled himself well. He was just a little taken aback at my answer.

We also discussed the Alberta vaccine passport orders, and the Calgary mayor and city council’s decision to ban non-vaxport compliant “non-essential businesses.”

My response again was simple.

“Media is an essential service and I do not recognize the right of the government to decided if we are essential or not.”

The AHS employee responded: “Some of these [regulations] are good, and some of these are, you know…”

Fair enough.

So AHS is investigating to see if we are deserving of a visit from them and the police or not. We’ll see what comes of it.

One way or another, our policy will not change:

  • Employees are free to make their own choices about their personal enforcement of restrictions;
  • Employees may work from home if they feel that they are at unreasonable risk;
  • Employees must work from home if they are sick or anyone they are in close contact with contracts COVID-19;
  • And, employees are encouraged, but free to make their own informed choices about vaccines.

I suspect that the complaint came from a crank on Twitter that’s upset with my not-so-secret policies as it concerns compliance with government orders.

We take COVID-19 seriously. This isn’t some made-up conspiracy of a mysterious cabal in a dark and smokey room. I personally trust my doctor’s advise on COVID-19 vaccination, and got my jab as soon as I possibly could. I have always encouraged an open dialogue about vaccines with those in my social and professional circles, encouraging it, but never, ever demanding or requiring it.

Alberta’s ICUs are facing incredible pressure right now and necessary “elective surgeries” are being postponed. This is driven by the fact that Alberta’s government has not built up the necessary ICU capacity — despite having one of the most expensive health care systems on the planet — and 19 months since COVID-19 landed to do it. Lockdowns and vaxports will not solve this problem.

COVID-19 will continue to mutate and evade efforts to eradicate it. Alas, it may be with us for a long, long time. Even locked-down island nations like Australia cannot eradicate it, despite turning that once-free country into a veritable police state.

Despite my hopes the vaccines would eliminate it, COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon. There appears to be no way around the fact that COVID-19 is going to tear its way through the population until it burns itself out. The cost is, and will be, terrible. But there appears to be no way to stop it, even with a never-ending cycle of lockdowns, and the positive effects of vaccines.

All we can do is build our health care capacity to deal with predictable surges, as the fourth wave was, protect those who are genuinely vulnerable, and make the best of a bad situation.

And as we struggle through this, we cannot lose what is most important in life. We cannot surrender our long-fought freedoms for short-term security. We cannot take away the best years of our children’s lives. We cannot forbid loved ones from mourning their dead at funerals. We cannot outlaw family and friends from gathering for weddings. We cannot forcibly segregate people from these events because of their private medical decisions, even if we disagree with them.

Which brings me back to AHS’s investigation of the Western Standard. I care more about our employees than any government official will. We will be responsible and take necessary precautions, but as we see fit as free men and free women capable of making our own decisions.

Any government official who thinks otherwise had better get a warrant.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**

The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
