SOLBODIAN: Tam needs to answer questions about Fauci lies

What does Canada’s chief medical officer think about the lies Dr. Anthony Fauci, top medical advisor in the U.S., told to save his sorry skin?




A good time to hear Dr. Theresa Tam’s perspective on the shocking revelations would be now.

What does Canada’s chief medical officer think about the lies Dr. Anthony Fauci, top medical advisor in the U.S., told to save his sorry skin?

Was she surprised to hear Fauci funded dangerous gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) where mounting evidence points to as the source of the leak of COVID-19 that killed 3.7 million people and crippled global economies?

Does she support this research that manipulates viruses and pathogens, increasing their lethality by turning them into super viruses to see how they affect humans? 

Despite Tam’s close ties to the World Health Organization (WHO) wasn’t she told Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infection Diseases (NIAID), was funneling U.S. tax dollars into dangerous research?

Tam, an advisor to the all-knowing WHO, is allegedly bound by a non-disclosure agreement.

Did Tam rely on Fauci’s advice about face masks? 

If so, is she troubled that Fauci was intentionally deceptive when he mandated masks, yet secretly said they don’t protect people from COVID-19?

“The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material,” Fauci wrote in a recently disclosed email.

After this stunning revelation, will Tam recommend altering edicts forcing Canadians to wear masks?

What does Tam think about a growing chorus of experts questioning Fauci’s calculations on the COVID-19 death toll?

The damage Fauci inflicted on a world devastated by COVID-19 may be incalculable.

He hid information that might have drastically changed the course on how this pandemic was handled.

Fauci was busy behind the scenes working damage control to protect himself, to hide that he was directly implicated in funding engineering the very coronavirus he was ever-so-heroically fighting to save them from.

The gall of this creepy little man is unfathomable.

Thousands of emails obtained by Buzzfeed and The Washington Post through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request prove Fauci fretted the public might believe COVID-19 ordinated from the WIV. 

They reveal he was told Jan. 31, 2020, by National Institutes of Health scientist Kristian Anderson that COVID-19 bore the marks of being engineered by gain-of-function research.

Yet Fauci repeatedly said COVID-19 originated from bats, or maybe pangolins, eaten in a Wuhan wet market while disputing the possibility it was engineered in the WIV down the road.

He lied to the cameras, he lied in the White House, he lied under oath in a Senate hearing.

As more virologists and scientists speak out, the door is slamming shut on the theory that COVID-19 was transmitted from animals to humans.

Between 2014 and 2019 the NIH, backed by Fauci’s NIAID, committed $7.4M for research that includes some gain-of-function work, some of it conducted at the WIV.

Many researchers oppose what’s a means of creating bioweapons. 

Even China’s ‘batwoman’ Shi Zhengli, WIV’s head coronavirus researcher, warned about the deadly Frankenvirus experiment she helped create. 

Fauci’s long been an avid supporter of this research.

Canadians need to know if Tam, a medical professional, is troubled by Fauci’s scheming betrayal.

Why did it take FOIP emails to expose Fauci? Many people must have known about his nefarious deeds.

Experts – doctors, scientists, researchers – who dare question the great Fauci or the WHO’s COVID-19 claims are under siege. Attempts have been made to destroy their careers.

Fauci carried a frightening amount of influence beyond the U.S. borders. How much did Canada rely on  him to shape its response to COVID-19?

Tam’s not the only one yet to comment on Fauci’s fall from grace.

Our politicians are silent. Are they afraid of offending the communist Chinese government at the expense of Canadians?

Ontario MP Derek Sloan is one of the brave ones who was chastised and labelled a racist for asking questions Canadians want answered.

“The trail goes pretty deep here. We see that the NIH was funding gain-of-function research of viruses in China. They said it wasn’t supposed to be for that. We have no idea what China was using it for. We’re just buying into whatever China tells us. I think Canada is too naive in dealing with the communist party of China. We need to wake up,” said Sloan.

“There needs to be a Royal inquiry into every aspect of the handling of COVID-19. And it needs to start yesterday. This is something I called for a few weeks ago. There are so many pieces to this that just don’t add up. We need to get to the bottom of it and we need to do it quickly.”

With the Liberal government’s abysmal record of transparency and an election looming don’t count on them.

And this is likely something the opposition – particularity the timid Conservatives – won’t tackle.

    Canada gave money to the research lab as well as the United States. We aren’t exactly innocent of being involved in biological warfare. The Canadian government helped kill people. The Winnipeg Lab is involved. Big surprise. CCP and Trudeau are best of friends, and let’s not forget Mayor Nenshi of Calgary. another CCP party friend and admirer.

    The saddest thing of all is that all of us anti-vaxxer, tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorists who were screaming from the rooftops about this purposely released (and yes there is proof – go through all the emails and the multiple published peer-reviewed paper trails) gain of function virus, which by definition is a PLANNED pandemic, were right.
    Sadder yet, is the same bunch of us who were cautioning everyone AGAINST injecting themselves with the experimental gene-therapy shots rebranded as vaccines were not only ignored but also vilified, demeaned, ostracized, discriminated against, etc. There is proof these shots are far more harmful than safe, but our govt STILL coerces people into injecting them, and people refuse to consider the mounds and mounds of proof.
    What is it going to take for people to see how corrupt this entire system is? Big Pharma funds 2/3 of Health Canada’s budget. No one sees a conflict of interest here? It also is the major advertiser for every mainstream media outlet. Can we spell PROPAGANDA? It funds research at the universities, prints the textbooks, and controls every aspect of so-called health care.
    We can choose to allow these corrupt people to control our lives or we can choose to find the courage to ask WHAT IF? What if this is all true? Then, maybe, just maybe we can all work together to find a solution.

    We will not hear any criticism from Dr.Tam regarding Fauci’s involvement with the Wuhan Lab, as I suspect this may be why.

    Who cares what she/he (TAM)thinks. We should be asking how she is connected to the Winnipeg LAB that surely will be proven to be connected. Go watch John E Hoover Channel on YT. Look for the post “The Canadian Connection” from aprox 3 weeks ago!

    We in Canada do have the right to question loyalty to Canada Justin Trudeau. Your loyalty to Canada has been suspect since your utterance “the country Canada belongs to us” meaning Quebec. Also your utterance that “Canada is a Post Nation State” is further proof you have no loyalty to Canada, but only to Quebec.

    In Canada. If you are a white person asking a critical question of a not white person. You are then subjected to being called a racist by the Prime Minister of Canada. Then subjected to a leftist media hanging to make sure the point is driven home.

    Here is the problem for Canada. Trudeau appoints many to important positions not based on experience or competence. Minister of Finance Freeland as an example.

    Trudeau’s love & infatuation with all things Chinese is another concern. Level 4 Virology Lab at Winnipeg, Manitoba as an example.

    MP Sloan’s question regarding loyalty to Canada was a fair comment to Tam. One that I would have asked myself if I was there PM Trudeau.

    CNN & the socialist media in the USA are lying & spinning Dr. Fluci’s story backwards and forwards, but I think those e-mails of his along with others are implicating. Dr. Fluci & others involved could be cuffed to a criminal process. We will see.

    Fox News is on the story full-time & we have nothing like Fox News in Canada to hold Trudeau & his crew of misfits accountable. If we had a 24/7 conservative news channel, on cable, wouldn’t that be nice?

    Fauci lied like a sidewalk, his Emails now reveal that he knew the truth 15 months ago.
    He signed a waiver to allow Gain of Function research & funded the Wuhan Lab. Obama also could be in on the scam . . .
    He should be investigated and do some jail time . . . and any others connected to this scam.
    To me he always looked like a little wanna-be Napoleon.

    Tam lied and repeated WHO propaganda right from the start. Many in Canadian Media & Politics today are CCP Assets . . .

    This was never any more than a Bad Flu Season . . . the insane Lockdowns have done enormous damage to the Canadian Public and destroyed much of the Economy.
    O’Foole and the Cons have been missing in action . . .

    In spite of dozens of well-qualified Drs. mostly in the USA where they were not being Crushed by Cdn Medical Associations . . . they were ignored. It was all about Politics folks . . .

    Douglas W. Allen, economics professor at Canada’s Simon Fraser University said;
    Lockdowns have had little effect on bringing down COVID-19 deaths and could be one of Canada’s biggest policy failures in history, a professor wrote in a research paper published this month.

    But low intellect Premiers & the slow-thinking Crime Minister consulted no competent Scientists . . . just followed the China Model of lockdowns & tyrany.

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.
