TAM: No proof vaxports work

In fact, the Public Health Agency of Canada hasn’t even studied the effect such passports would have on immunization rates




There’s no proof vaccine passports work, says Canada’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Theresa Tam.

In fact, the Public Health Agency of Canada hasn’t even studied the effect such passports would have on immunization rates, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

“It’s something we should pay close attention to and study,” said Tam.

“That also helps other jurisdictions should they want to make these kinds of decisions.”

Four provinces to date – British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Québec – have issued orders requiring proof of vaccination to access non-essential public services like restaurants and hockey arenas.

Tam said 7.3 million Canadians are not yet fully vaccinated, including five million who have declined the first inoculation.

An average of 69% of eligible residents are fully vaccinated in the four provinces with vaccine passports with vaccination rates in provinces without mandates average 67%.

“In your opinion do vaccine mandates or vaccine passports have any kind of impact on boosting vaccination rates?” asked a reporter.

“We are watching carefully,” replied Tam.

“We don’t have good evaluation or statistics except that provinces individually have said, I think in the media, that they saw an increase in uptake.”

“Is there data indicating what does work?” asked a reporter.

“Some of it is just trust-building, getting influencers, youth influencers, people who can get to social media, TikTok in particular,” replied Tam.

Local health authorities should consider operating mobile clinics through workplaces, she said.

“What I’m interested in is an actual study of course of the full range of approaches,” said Tam.

“But the question prior to that, which is: do locally implemented requirements for vaccines to access non-essential services, for example, work? That remains to be seen.”

The Liberal Party in its September 1 campaign platform advocated an Act of Parliament “to ensure every business and organization that decides to require proof of vaccination from employees and customers can do so without fear of a legal challenge.”

Currently, compulsory vaccination to access public services would breach the Privacy Act, said Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien.

Canadians who have declined a COVID-19 shot are “more than just being wrong because everyone’s entitled to their opinion, they are putting at risk their own kids and they’re putting at risk our kids as well,” Trudeau said August 31.

“What about my choice to keep my kids safe? What about our choices to make sure we’re getting through this pandemic as quickly as we can?

“We’ll stand firm on our commitment. We’ll protect businesses that mandate vaccinations from unjustified lawsuits.”

    Simple test:
    Israel, massive vaccination, 3rd shot, etc.: 45 deaths /day.
    Palestine, almost no vaccination, 0 deaths / day

    Woops. Did you vaccinate children in fear of a disease they stood a 99.999% chance of surviving, most of them not even knowing they had it? In most of Europe it is now illegal to vaccinate under the age of 15. Canadians are bat sh#t crazy.

    I’m at the place where regardless of my personal views on these shots I won’t ever take it. I’ll stand in solidarity with those getting abused by the government and standing for their own values.

    It takes a lot of courage to blindly obey the government and the lier’s in charge of the health care system.

    They call them those people, or the unvaxxed.

    Straight out of the book of hitler …. Congratulations to all the spineless folks out their watching their neighbours be marginalized by nonsense rules .

    It is time to become a peaceful, public nuisance. Enter establishments without masks. Enter vaxx-only places and refuse to provide identification. Peaceful non-compliance encourages others to do the same. They can’t stop all of us. It is time to work together—Vaxxed and unvaxxed alike. We were all the same people in 2019, and we still are. Don’t let them label you.

    Pass ports are just another way of discriminating against people. There is a lot of information out there that says vaccination wears off. A third shot will be needed. Then a fourth and a fifth. There is a lot of information out there that informs us that the vaccine long term effect will be devastating and will have no effect on other varrients.
    No one talks about testing to see if a person already has immunity before forcing the vaccinating. Any time there has to be this much propaganda to get people to vaccinate it is likely not in the best interest of the recipient. Looking at the data the fourth wave is not any where near what the third wave was yet they lead everybody to believe it is.
    When there is a great percentage of the medical staff that refuse the vaccine. Why would anybody in their right mind take it. Forcing people to take it or lose their pay is barbaric at best.
    And when the only winners are the Big Pharma and government who in their mind would believe either.

Truckers: ‘We are not separatists or terrorists’

The organization announced the number of heavy trucks-alone- going to Ottawa is close to 50,000, a large increase from the original expected 1,600 trucks.




Truckers on the Freedom Convoy are rejecting characterizations they are “separatists” and “terrorists.”

“A small team of Alberta truckers, their family members and friends, came to the decision that the Government of Canada has crossed a line with implementing COVID-19 vaccine passports and vaccine mandates. As of today, we now have the support of millions of Canadians from across the country,” group organizers said in a press release.

Demands from the Freedom Convoy to the federal government are:

  • Terminate all vaccine passports, including inter-Canada passport systems.
  • Eliminate mandatory programs of vaccination and contact tracing.
  • Respect the rights of those who wish to remain unvaccinated.
  • Cease the divisive rhetoric attacking Canadians who disagree with government mandates.
  • Cease limiting debate through coercive measures with the goal of censoring those who have varying or incorrect opinions.

“A unified and free Canada can be our future, and it starts now with reminding the government they serve the people,” stated the truckers.

“We have an opportunity for all of us to come together irrespective of our differences and do what is needed to ensure our freedoms are protected now and for future generations.

Statements claiming the convoy participants are ‘separatists’ or ‘terrorists’ are “categorically false and an attempt to smear” the movement, organizers said.

“It is saddening this kind of rhetoric is coming from Prime Minister Trudeau and his government. Instead of protecting our basic freedoms outlined in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Justin and his government seek to do the opposite. He is continually issuing defamatory comments and maligning large segments of the population. If history has taught us anything, these are actions that cannot be ignored. We are peaceful, hard-working Canadians who love our country and want the betterment for all Canadians.”

The organizers said due to the mass support of the movement, they can no longer guarantee the average Canadian will not be disrupted by the protest.

“For that, we are truly sorry, and we will do our very best to limit the disruptions to your lives. We ask that Canadians remember we are fighting for everyone’s freedoms and it’s the political class that has abandoned us all,” said the release.

The organization announced the number of heavy trucks going to Ottawa is close to 50,000, a large increase from the original expected 1,600 trucks. One driver going the opposite direction told the Western Standard he measured the convoy at 100-km long as it approached Winnipeg.

Some supporters are unable to commit to the whole trip, but are finding ways to still participate.

“A lot of vehicles just join the parade while it’s close to their homes and then peel off later, so it’s dynamic,” Martin Halvorson, a driver in the convoy, told the Western Standard.

“The amount of people is unknown because we are not counting … The numbers are big,” convoy organizer, Andy Draaistra, told the Western Standard.

“All the support is unbelievable, we hope the overpasses will hold the tons of people,” said Draaistra.

The protest is against federal COVID-19 mandates and is scheduled to arrive in Ottawa January 30 and then hold a mass demonstration the next day, Monday, when Parliament reumes.

China changes Fight Club ending to cops busting anarchists

Multiple scenes from the original cut were deleted and a new ending was added.




The classic film Fight Club has been changed for viewers in China, with a ‘happy ending’ that complies with domestic censorship rules.

An altered version of the 1999 film was released on streaming platform Tencent Video in China over the weekend.

Multiple scenes from the original cut were deleted and a new ending was added.

Many in China had seen the original film pirated online and were surprised when streaming the newly released version.

Instead of buildings exploding at the end, the version shows authorities step in and win. 

Original closing scene of Fight Club

In the closing scenes of the original the narrator kills off his imaginary alter ego Tyler Durden and then watches multiple buildings explode with Marla Singer, suggesting his character’s plan to bring down modern civilization is underway.

In the censored version released in China, the narrator still kills off Durden, but the exploding buildings scene is replaced with a written message on black screen.

“The police rapidly figured out the whole plan and arrested all criminals, successfully preventing the bomb from exploding.”

As well as Tyler, figment of the narrator’s imagination was sent to a ‘lunatic asylum’ for psychological treatment and later discharged.

Revised ending to Fight Club

China is home to some of the strictest rules regarding censorship, and only a handful of foreign films are released each year.

In the past Hollywood has created alternative cuts in order to comply with Chinese censorship rules, in hopes to access millions of viewers in the country.

It is unclear if the cut was made by western movie producers, or the Chinese government.

Tencent did not comment on the matter.

Authorities under President Xi Jinping have been working to eliminate society of influences classified as unhealthy, including within movies, television, computer games.

This effort was also extended to cracking down on the country’s local celebrities for perceived immoral behaviour.

The Cyberspace Administration of China announced earlier this week an organized month-long ‘clean’ web campaign to create a ‘civilized and healthy’ online atmosphere.

Butt launches Twitter tirade on Scheer for supporting truckers

“It’s a truly depressing turn for our politics to take in Canada. Have we paid no attention to what happened to US politics, and how it happened?”




The former top aide to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has launched a Twitter broadside against former Conservative leader Andrew Scheer after he supported the truckers’ convoy rolling across Canada to protest vaccine mandates.

“Thank you Truckers! Trudeau is attacking personal liberty and threatening everyone’s ability to get groceries because of his overreach on vaccine mandates. He is the biggest threat to freedom in Canada,” Scheer tweeted.

Scheer tweet

That was enough to set Butts off.

“A breathtakingly irresponsible thing for a former Leader of the Opposition to say. Calling the prime minister — any prime minister — the biggest threat to Canadian liberty? This isn’t a dog whistle. It’s a welcome mat,” he tweeted.

“Politics is a rough business and not for the thin of skin or faint of heart. But the people in these enormously important offices have to respect those offices, even if they don’t like each other.”

Butts tweet

In a later tweet, Butts said: “Have been thinking about Mr Scheer’s comments all day. It’s a truly depressing turn for our politics to take in Canada. Have we paid no attention to what happened to US politics, and how it happened? I almost wish I were a Conservative, so I could fight for my party’s soul.”

On the weekend, Butts took a run at organizer Tamara Lich in an attempt to cast doubt on the integrity of Convoy For Freedom 2022.

“An Alberta separatist has collected almost a million bucks on a GoFundMe page to ‘support’ trucker protests. Where will the money go?” asked Butts in a tweet. 

More than $4.5 million has been raised to date as thousands of truckers are expected to descend on Ottawa this weekend.
