EXCLUSIVE: U of A health professor says the vaccinated are more likely to contract Delta variant

Professor Warren Kindzierski says “The data presented show fully-vaccinated people aged 60 years and over are being infected, hospitalized and dying from the Delta variant.”




A University of Alberta public health professor claims that vaccinated people around the world are leading the fourth wave of COVID-19 by being infected with the Delta variant at a greater rate than the unvaccinated.

Warren Kindzierski, an adjunct professor of environmental health at the University of Alberta School of Public Health, said studies in England, Scotland and Israel have led him to that conclusion.

And he said vaccine passports won’t do anything to stop the wave from hitting Alberta, which is further behind than countries in the Delta wave.

“The data presented show fully-vaccinated people aged 60 years and over are being infected, hospitalized and dying from the Delta variant. mRNA vaccines and the mRNA-produced non-sterilizing antibodies do not appear to be working as originally intended for the Delta variant,” Kindzierski wrote in a paper on the Ontario Civil Liberties Association (OCLA) website.

“As for people aged 60 or older who are of average health or better, or those who have been previously infected, the evidence is weak that they need to be vaccinated for COVID-19 in Alberta.

“Requiring proof of vaccination for people to enter certain businesses and to attend certain events is not supported by science as vaccinated people can be infected by the Delta variant and transmit it to others.”

He said studies in England have shown people who were fully vaccinated had higher numbers than not vaccinated for people 60 years and older in cases of emergency admissions and deaths recently in England.

Kindzierski said a study on the database of Maccabi Healthcare Services, which has about 2.5 million Israelis enrolled, showed similar trends.

“The study found that people who were vaccinated in January and February of 2021 were – in June, July and the first half of August, 2021 — at 13-fold greater risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected,” Kindzierski said.

“In comparing outcomes for more than 32,000 people in the database, the study also found the risk of developing symptomatic Covid was 27 times higher among vaccinated people, and the risk of hospitalization from COVID-19 was eight times higher among vaccinated people.”

“Are mRNA vaccines working for the Delta variant? The answer to this is apparently no. All viruses survive by replicating (creating copies of themselves). There are always a lot of imperfect copies (mutations) produced by the copying process,” he said.

“Among RNA respiratory viruses — including coronaviruses — these mutations occur quickly so that there is rapid genetic drift, which continually produces new strains. Mutated viruses (variants) are normal and expected.

“The data presented tells us that the Delta variant is indiscriminate of vaccination status – i.e., it can infect both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.”

The Western Standard contacted Alberta Health Services but they declined comment.

Alberta Health responded on Wednesday.

“The claim that Delta affects vaccinated and unvaccinated “indiscriminately” is a calculated distortion. The variant does infect vaccinated people but at far lower rates and less seriously,” said Health spokesman Steve Buick.

“The claim that vaccinated people age 60 and up can have severe outcomes like unvaccinated people again is a calculated distortion. Yes, they can but in fact, they have them at far lower rates. We are seeing this right now in Israel, among other jurisdictions.

“The claim that the evidence is weak for vaccinated healthy people 60 and up is nonsense. There are plenty of admissions in that age group and all adults can transmit the virus. 

“The claim that the restriction Exemption Program is not supported by science is a political statement that shows contempt for the evidence. Vaccinated people can be infected and transmit COVID but they’re at far lower risk, especially for severe disease, as we’ve stated above.

“The vast majority of infectious disease experts and other clinicians and scientists with expertise in the field support vaccination. A few outliers who put ideology over evidence are not an indication vaccines are not effective.”

    Rome Declaration: Over 6,700 Doctors Sign Letter Rejecting Coronavirus Tyranny

    The Rome Declaration states in part: “the political intrusion into the practice of medicine and the physician/patient relationship must end.”

    A powerful statement rejecting coronavirus tyranny has been signed by over 6,700 doctors. The document is known as the “Rome Declaration” and physicians from all over the world have signed.

    A conference that took place earlier this month in San Juan, Puerto Rico featured the initiating physicians. One of the goals of the event was to be a launchpad for “more in-depth and open conversations around the Covid pandemic.”

    One positive outcome of the conference is that persecuted physicians who are fighting to preserve the patient-doctor relationship have found that their courage has inspired others:

    Although many of the doctors on the panel have been censored and criticized on both social media and mainstream media…many have received strong positive recognition in the medical community prior to expressing their views around the pandemic.

    Reaffirming their commitment to the Hippocratic Oath, the physicians cited an “unprecedented assault on our ability to care for our patients”. They declare in part that “the political intrusion into the practice of medicine and the physician/patient relationship must end.”

    This story needs to be covered by every media outlet…instead of vaccinating children and having continuing waves of sickness, this shows the tremendous success they have had in Uttar Pradesh in eradicating Covid. Simple, cheap and almost no known side effects. But the media blacks it out, and we have wonderful professionals losing their jobs and/or being slammed as quacks for encouraging its use. https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/indias-ivermectin-blackout—part-v-the-secret-revealed/article_9a37d9a8-1fb2-11ec-a94b-47343582647b.html?fbclid=IwAR1xynglzwZe-EPDNSoJ8TvZmbA7JaFcNiPoB60t9bUOl2ODTVIO5tK7yE4

    “New Israeli Study Finds Fully Vaccinated People are at “Greater Risk of Hospitalization” and 13 TIMES MORE LIKELY to Catch Covid-19
    Than Those Who Have Recovered and Have Natural Immunity

    A new study out of Israel has seemingly confirmed that individuals who have natural immunity have better protection against the NEW DELTA VARIANT than people who are fully vaccinated.

    The team of researchers, from Maccabi Healthcare and Tel Aviv University, published their study earlier this week to medRxiv.org.”

    This issue has absolutely nothing to do with a virus and everything to do with getting everyone equipped with a QR Code.

    How much longer before we are all equipped with a QR Code? This interview hits pretty close to home.
    Think back 75 years ago during the Nuremberg Trials and the purpose of the Nuremberg Codes. How far have we progressed in 75 years? Time to start paying attention folks.

New Sask law exempts employers from COVID-19 lawsuits

The release bragged that Saskatchewan was one of only five jurisdictions with such extensive sexual harassment protections, but after the legislation was passed, Morgan defended the COVID-19 provisions as being common.




By Lee Harding

Employees’ quests for legal COVID-19 recourse has died with recently passed legislation that is “protecting vulnerable workers” according to Labour Minister Don Morgan.

Legislation recently passed by the Government of Saskatchewan prevents employers from being sued for implementing measures listed in the Public Employers’ COVID-19 Emergency Regulations or the Employers’ COVID-19 Emergency Regulations.

Amendments to the Saskatchewan Employment Act say “no action or proceeding lies or shall be commenced or maintained against an employer” if that employer acts in good faith.

“It’s broad general thing that would cover anything related to COVID-19 — signage, lack of signage, whatever else might reasonably arise from it. The threshold is that they must act in good faith,” said Morgan.

“We aren’t trying to target a specific lawsuit that’s been started or being threatened … But we know that COVID-19 vaccines, etc., are a worldwide issue right now and we want to be able to encourage our employers to have some comfort that they’re not going to be subject to lawsuits.”

The legislation applies regardless of when a perceived transgression may have occurred. The amendment received royal assent November 30. However, when the Saskatchewan Employment Amendment Act, 2021 was first announced in a press release November 18, nothing about COVID-19 was even mentioned.

Although the opening sentence mentioned “better and safer workplaces for employers and employees” the rest of the release concerned details about sexual harassment and union bargaining provisions.

Now the Labour Relations Board must exclude supervisors from the same bargaining unit as those they supervise, wherever possible. Sexual harassment at the workplace is now defined as any unwelcome action of a sexual nature, and provisions of the act extend beyond employees to include independent contractors, students, and volunteers.

“The legislation that governs our employers and employees needs to address the challenges of the modern work environment, including protecting vulnerable workers,” Morgan wrote in the release. “These amendments will help us build a stronger, safer and healthier Saskatchewan.”

fact sheet the release linked to concluded with a brief mention of COVID-19.

“We are introducing a provision that will provide protection for public and private sector employers that comply with the new COVID-19 vaccination regulations. These regulations give the employee the choice of showing evidence of being fully vaccinated or evidence of a negative COVID-19 test at least every seven days.”

The release bragged Saskatchewan was one of only five jurisdictions with such extensive sexual harassment protections, but after the legislation was passed, Morgan defended the COVID-19 provisions as being common.

“That’s being done generally across North America,” Morgan said.

The same day Morgan made his comments, a post on the Freedom Alliance Facebook page suggested a strong desire for legal recourse alongside skepticism, and an apparent unawareness of the new provincial law.

“Does anyone here know of any lawyers in Saskatoon that believe in the same rights and freedom as we do? I believe it’s time to really do something about losing my source of income 

“The couple lawyers I did speak with basically said the pandemic supersedes all our rights! Would be great if we found a lawyer that called out the BS! Might have to source out to other provinces,” replied Michielle Ross Noble.

“At the mine I work at they had a lawyer go to bat and it seems to be that the government is above the law and beyond the constitution. Money talks louder than laws these days,” replied Garrick Bernard.

“I also live near Saskatoon,” replied Ron Chappell. “Good luck finding a lawyer that will stand up for your rights and freedoms. Seems these evils are above the law including the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms. There should be lawsuits going on everywhere. Either we don’t hear about them or they are not happening. Justin Trudeau is [a] tyrant.”

To this Funk made what proved to be a moot reply.

“Then a group of us should band together and file lawsuits! Who’s with me?”

Maverick leader describes his perfect successor

“I am aware of three or four people who are seriously considering running for leadership,” interim leader Jay Hill told the Western Standard.




Jay Hill, interim leader of the federal Maverick Party, says he hopes for a candidate for his replacement is someone that can “move the provinces and premiers towards greater autonomy for the West.”

On Wednesday, the Maverick Party released the rules for its leadership race that will see a new leader elected May 14, 2022.

The party will officially be accepting leadership applications as early as January 3 with a deadline of April 30.

Hill says he hopes to see two to six candidates apply.

“I am aware of three or four people who are seriously considering running for leadership,” Hill told the Western Standard.

“We’re more so focused on the quality side of things rather than quantity.”

The Maverick Party, formerly known as Wexit Canada, advocates for greater autonomy for Western Canadian provinces including BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the three territories.

“I’d like to see someone with the right vision and oratory skills to communicate with passion for Western Canadians,” said Hill.

Hill pointed to Quebec’s position within Canada and said the Maverick Party supports moving the western provinces in that direction.

Included in the list of rules for those interested in throwing their hat into the leadership race is a registration fee set at $10,000.

“Our governing council really struggled with that fee,” said Hill, who indicated the registration fee is still “substantially less” than any of the other federal parties.  

“We were really aiming for the right balance — that sweet spot — where you want to be realistic and make it doable and not a deterrent.

“It’s efficient to get serious contenders with serious commitment to register and not those with frivolous reasons.”

Hill, the former House leader for the Conservative Party of Canada, said he’s “too old” to run the party moving forward.

“My roll in elected office is done,” said Hill, adding he was done with the “high stress and high drama” when he quit federal politics in the fall of 2010.

When a new leader is elected in May, Hill plans to stay on and assist the party “depending on the needs of the new leader and how he or she feels I can contribute the most.”

Hill said he is excited and is looking forward to “a good, credible and lively leadership race.”

Maverick Party petition calls for carbon tax break for Canadians

Canadians will soon have to choose between food on their tables or heat in their homes,” the petition reads.




The Maverick Party, with a newly launched petition, is calling on the federal government to suspend the collection of carbon taxes from Canadians from January 1 to April 1, 2022.

Carbon tax is a levy imposed on human activity that results in carbon emissions being released into the atmosphere, usually by the burning of fossil fuels like gasoline, natural gas and coal.

The petition notes although carbon taxes are designed to “change behaviour,” the rising costs of living are an “added extra burden” on taxpayers.  

The petition also says the party “understands that the cost of living is increasing at a pace that families can’t keep up with,” pointing to “skyrocketing” inflation and the cost of essential items rising.

“Many Canadians will soon have to choose between food on their tables or heat in their homes,” the petition reads.

“The federal government can alleviate some of the burden by declaring a carbon tax moratorium on New Year’s Day 2022.”

The Maverick Party is demanding the government give Canadians who are “drowning financially” a break to get through what will likely be “the most expensive winter in memory,”

The Trudeau government implemented the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act in 2019 that was upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada in March of this year.

“Putting a price on carbon pollution is widely recognized as the most efficient means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also driving innovation,” the Government of Canada states on its website.
