Two docs call for banning all unvaccinated Albertans from employment

The doctors say that it should be illegal for any non-vaccinated Albertans to be employed, even in the private sector.

Two Alberta doctors — Dr. Noel Gibney and Dr. James Talbot — have written a letter to the provincial government saying non-vaccinated people shouldn’t be allowed to be employed in Alberta.

The letter from Talbot and Gibney to Health Minister Jason Copping demanded the implementation of seven measures to help stem the COVID-19 crisis in the province.

They demand that all Albertans in the ICUs in the hospital be transferred out-of-province, making vaccine passports mandatory to access all non-essential services, and making vaccines mandatory for all employees of both essential and “non-essential” businesses.

“Alberta’s hospital system, especially ICUs are under more killing stress than at any time in the province’s history,” the letter states, as reported by Postmedia.

“All Albertans have and do depend on our acute care hospitals. We are within days of being forced to implement a triage protocol which will force health-care workers to make life and death decisions on who will get scarce resources, like ventilators.”

The doctors are demanding a four-week hard lockdown of nightclubs, casinos, bars and indoor dining at restaurants, a closure of gyms and indoor sports, and limiting capacity at stores, malls and places of worship.

The Alberta health care system has been in a battle with the fourth wave of COVID-19 with ICUs at near capacity limits and more than 1,000 people in hospitals battling the virus.

Premier Jason Kenney accepted the resignation of Tyler Shandro this week and swapped and replaced him in the cabinet with him with Copping.

Speaking on the Roy Green show Sunday, Kenney said imposing even harsher lockdowns at this stage of the pandemic “makes no sense.”

“I know there’s some people out there with the solution now is you just … impose a hard lockdown on everyone,” Kenney said.

“First of all, that makes no sense for the 80% of the population that’s vaccinated, who are at much lower levels of risk of transmission and extremely lower level of risks of hospitalization. But secondly, it’s roughly 20% of the adult population who are unvaccinated who are less likely to observe public health measures. So that’s (why) we brought in a proof of vaccination program, and we think it’s going well.”

Kenney has used “proof of vaccination program” and “restrictions exemption program” as euphemisms for the provincial vaccine passport program.

“I know that it’s easy to sit on the sidelines and criticize governments across the world for their response, but we’re all trying to do our best.”

    Shocking results out of Victoria, Australia.
    Victoria Health Minister Foley announced 867 new COVID cases were recorded yesterday. Foley said 375 people are hospitalized, 81 people are in intensive care and 61 people are on a ventilator. Among the recorded cases “78% of the hospital cases are fully vaccinated, and 17% are partially vaccinated (1 dose).”
    In other words, 95% of the COVID patients in Victoria hospitals are at least partially vaccinated.
    Why don’t they give explanations? It certainly doesn’t explain why everyone has to be vaccinated, have vaccine passports, and so on. Everyone is walking around with masks, can only go out for necessities, and still, the cases are rising sharply.
    The vaccine is for the original COV and so is the booster. They allegedly have a vaccine for Delta. Maybe that’s the one they should give out.
    Roughly half the population of Victoria is vaccinated but 78% of the hospitalized are vaccinated. The vaccinated in the hospital represent a higher number than the vaccinated in the population.

    Perhaps Talbot and Gibney could go to Australia and help out ? ? ?

    It should be noted that Talbot is the former CMOH (Hinshaw’s predecessor). He is a long time Alberta public health bureaucrat and with that very limited medical knowledge.

    That’s quite the contrast between these 2 commandants & Dr Payne who is risking his job to speak reason isn’t it. Which one would you trust with your life? It’s way past time that the unelected Nazis running the College of Physicians & Surgeons, while comfortably hiding in the weeds, be forced out into the spotlight too. How did all these lunatics manage to wield so much power? Expose the whole sordid mess!

    2 modern day NAZis. They should both be fired!! Inciting hatred, division and discrimination. They obviously are part of this agenda. The doctors and nurses risking their jobs or have been fired are telling us the truth of what’s happening in the hospitals. It’s a bunch of lies and manipulation. Jabba jabba injuries are being covered up and causing the variants. The corruption stinks to high heaven and most people lost their senses!

    Two top Pathologists reveal astonishing results of investigation into ten deaths linked to the Covid-19 Vaccines – “We’ve never seen anything like it…”

    The press conference took place at the Institute of Pathology in Reutinglen, Germany; of which Professor Arne Burkhardt has been in charge of for over eighteen years. Professor Burkhardt held the press conference alongside another experienced pathologist, Professor Walter Yang who has headed a private institute specialising in lung pathology for the past 35 years, among other appointments.

    In collaboration with several other anonymous pathologists, Professor Arne Burkhardt and Professor Walter Yang investigated ten deaths that had occurred after the person had received the Covid-19 vaccine, and this is what they found…

    Of the ten deaths, the two Professors confirmed that they concluded five were very likely due to the Covid-19 vaccine, two were probably related to the vaccine, one was inconclusive, and two they concluded had no relation to the Covid-19 vaccine.

    I have visited several Drs during the last 21 months . . . and was more than surprized by their lack of knowledge in the Covid realm.
    Not one of them recommended Therapeutics that would have helped to keep me & my family healthy.
    Not one of them understood what a PCR Test even was . . . my wife’s Dr. gave me a long complicated explanation including how it identified genetically the Wuhan Virus . . . which is completely made up nonsense. The PCR Test cannot tell one Corona Virus from another.
    My son’s Dr. recently admitted that he was on a conference call from the Provincial Authorities the morning before he visited and was given his marching orders. When asked about Miocarditis and other side effects he just walked out of the room.
    This is what is passing for “Medicine” in the era of the Wuhan Flu.

    Why are the VAXED Afraid? Because the Propaganda Govt Funded media & the Intimidated Drs. are making it that way. What are they going to tell the VAXED when the Hospitals are filled with VAXED folks with Covid in the next couple of months? We are already seeing that in several countries.

    Recent data shows that in the states where the highest percentage of their residents received the shot and are fully vaccinated, there were the highest increases in COVID cases.

    The shot isn’t preventing the spread of the illness, but it seems to possibly be doing the opposite.

    One of the states that has had the best numbers with COVID recently is Texas. It is a more conservative state with a much lower percentage of vaccinated individuals.

    There have also been many people coming over the border without the vaccine, and yet the number of those sick in Texas has not been greatly increasing, as it has in Maine, Vermont, and New York.

    Dr. Noel Gibney and Dr. James Talbot are really this friggin ignorant?
    What do these clown Drs. believe the “VAXED” have to fear?
    Does the VAX not work?
    Did it ever occur to these morons that up to 1/3 of the Alberta Population have Natural Immunity from coming in contact with the Wuhan Virus? Which according to Science is 20 to 27 Xs more robust than the Experimental VAX.

    I propose that Drs. who have given their Patients fraudulent Propaganda for the last 21 Months that has been fed to them by the Provincial & Federal Health authorities should have their Licences to Practice Medicine Cancelled! They are not Drs at all, just Conduits for the Govt.

    Interesting that a news article in 2015 had this to say about Dr. James Talbot:
    “Talbot was also instrumental in the province’s decision to dramatically increase its supply of flu vaccine in 2014, ordering more than 2 million doses up from 1.3 million the previous year. The vaccine was later found to be ineffective against a new strain of H3N2. For the first time in nearly two decades, the province recorded more than 100 flu-related deaths.” Guess some people are just slow learners.

    Also, most doctors are not experts in virology. Virology is studied minimally in medical schools. A doctor specializing in this field or a student working up and finishing post graduate studies specializing in virology would have forgotten much more then Talbot and Gibney ever knew. Many of these experts have spoken out but the do not get a platform with the mainstream media.

    Talbot is an Alberta political figure. No doubt this is a political operative designed for Kenney/Notely to implement much more drastic and horrific measures.

    India got their emergency under control by sending in care packages containing vitamin D, Ivermectin, and hydroxychloroquine. For purely political reasons the last 2 substances are banned from treating Covid-19. Sending in care packages is beyond the scope of these imbeciles who cannot think outside their small box.

  21. Cosmo Kramer

    September 27, 2021 at 7:42 am

    What the 2 doctors (one of them the retired CMOH bureaucrat) and Alberta Health will not do is provide treatment. They will have nothing to do with recommending good health measures and taking vitamin D to mitigate this. Proven effective treatments such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are not allowed. The much more qualified Dr. Eric Payne wrote a better letter to the College of Physicians and surgeons and is not widely known. That this made postmedia and from a CMOH indicates a likely political operation and forecasting of more horrific policies.

    What the 2 “doctors” can’t realize that in a province with approximately 4,000,000 people that just over 200 ICU beds does not indicate an emergency. How many of you see the signs of a medical crisis in your own lives? Not many can see lots colleagues missing work, funerals, busy funeral homes, etc. No doubt there are a lot of people getting sick but the solution would be to fix the system to adapt instead of blaming others. Pushing novell unconventional gene therapy injections where the trials are scheduled to end in 2023 is highly irresponsible.

    Kenney makes a false claim that non-injected people are “likely” not following measures and that is why he implemented vaxports. What is the evidence for this statement? Also, he fundraised a week earlier on that he was against vaxports. To get the data ready, the personnel in place to implement it, the legal aspects, the planning, this had to be in the works for at least 3 months. Whatever Kenney says just cannot believed in that he is a pathological liar.

    I think it’s time to start banning and forcibly removing certain medical “professionals” from the province. No severance, immediate loss of of salary, benefits and pensions. Immediate loss of their medical license to practice in Alberta. I’m not naming any names but 2 spring to mind.

All four visits had one thing in common…..a very long wait to see a doctor while every variety of crack-head and drug abuser was prioritized and consumed most of the time and resources of available staff. How about instead, we make everyone pass a drug test before being employed in Alberta? Let’s stop villifying people whose decisions are not imposing any meaningful negative externality on anyone else….or at worst are not a greater drain on our socialist medical system than those on a long list of people making “irresponsible choices”

Four Alberta doctors file lawsuit againt AHS and Yiu over forced vaccination

“The Plaintiffs oppose being forced against their will to be vaccinated without their informed consent as mandated by AHS,” the statement of claim reads.

Published

on

A statement of claim was filed Friday against Alberta Health Services (AHS) and President and CEO of AHS, Dr. Verna Yiu by four Alberta doctors opposed to vaccination mandates.

“The Plaintiffs oppose being forced against their will to be vaccinated without their informed consent as mandated by AHS,” the statement of claim reads.

“Further, the Plaintiffs are opposed to disclosing their private health information or have disclosed their private health information with respect to their vaccination status against their will under threat of termination or unpaid long-term leave.”

The statement of claim says the plaintiffs are also concerned the COVID-19 vaccines are “experimental and have not undergone sufficient long-term safety observation,” and claim the ingredients for the vaccines have yet to be fully disclosed.

Plaintiff Dr. Joanna Moser is an anesthesiologist in Calgary and Red Deer and has had severe allergies to past vaccines. Moser is concerned about the risks she faces not knowing what the full list of ingredients are and fears having an adverse reaction to the shot but has been denied an exemption.

The legal filing also highlights the doctors’ concerns that “the COVID-19 vaccines do not provide full immunity,” and may only “lessen the severity of symptoms or potentially reduce the risk of hospitalization.”

In addition to citing numerous Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms violations and medical references disputing the safety and efficacy of the vaccines, the statement of claim also says the doctors are facing “discrimination” and have suffered “vilification and extreme ill-will” as a result of “false public statements” that the “unvaccinated are to blame for the pandemic.”

 Local lawyer, Jeffrey Rath of Rath & Company filed the statement of claim on behalf of his clients Friday afternoon and intends to file an injunction application on Monday.

“We’re filing the injunction to provide temporary relief for our clients and others while waiting for this to get to trial,” said Rath in an interview with the Western Standard.

“The injunction will bring broad-based relief to all those unvaccinated within AHS on the basis that it’s creating a toxic work environment and is willfully creating contempt and hatred towards unvaccinated staff members.”

An injunction, if successful, would force the vaccine mandates to be put on hold until the claim is finally determined.

Banned BC doctor claims COVID ‘the greatest propaganda campaign in human history’

“This is a pandemic caused by the vaccinations and were talking about high school level biology,” said Dr. Nagase.

mm

Published

The current COVID-19 crisis is because of a “pandemic caused by vaccination,” said banned Dr. Daniel Nagase, in an exclusive interview with the Western Standard.

Nagase, a B.C. doctor who came under fire for giving patients an unapproved treatment for COVID-19 while working in Alberta hospitals, has been relieved of his duties in September and is no longer permitted to work in Alberta Health Services facilities.

Early October, a video of Nagase speaking at an event commemorating the anniversary of the Nuremburg Trials went viral with his account of working in an Alberta hospital treating COVID-19 patients with Ivermectin, which is also used in agriculture settings.

Western Standard exclusive interview with Dr. Daniel Nagase

The Western Standard shared the video and subsequent tweets from AHS about the incident.

“All physicians — including temporary locums — are governed by AHS’ medical bylaws when working in an AHS facility. Under these bylaws, there are expectations for all physicians to follow regarding unapproved use of medical therapy,” said AHS.

Nagase said he is not against vaccines, but said “there’s never been anything like this given to humans,” referencing the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

“Medically speaking, scientifically speaking, this is a lot closer to gene therapy than it is other vaccines that have been put out in history,” Nagase said adding he has not had a COVID-19 shot yet.

Nagase said his life has been turned upside down since he began to speak out about his experience being relieved of duty for treating COVID-19 patients with Ivermectin, but added, “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Since his message has gone viral on social media, Nagase said he’s been able to reach more people with his message that “Ivermectin is a safe medication for coronavirus 19.”

Nagase has researched trials in other countries and said, “in every single one of those studies, Ivermectin worked. In moderate COVID and mild COVID mortality is reduced to zero.”

Also concerning to Nagase is that doctors are being prevented from treating patients as they would have been able to in the past.

“What they did is something that has never been done in 200 years of medical history. They banned doctors from trying a medication and banned patients from receiving it,” said Nagase of how Ivermectin was prohibited from being prescribed and used to treat COVID-19 in Canada.

Nagase has been banned from hospital practice in all AHS facilities, but is still able to practice if he opened his own office. However, Nagase said as of Monday, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta has asked him to voluntarily withdraw his licence.

“And usually when they demand you voluntarily withdraw your licence, it’s because they are leading up to involuntary revocation of your license,” he said.

Nagase also slammed the Alberta government for its handling of the health crisis.

“It has been completely anti-science,” Nagase said who went on to explain “when healthy people wear masks, you are actually driving the evolution for any virus to overcome that mask.”

“This is a pandemic caused by the vaccinations and were talking about high school level biology.

“I’m worried that we are living through the greatest propaganda campaign in human history,” Nagase said when asked why he believes there is such conflicting information around the pandemic.

When asked how he would have handled dealing with the pandemic, Nagase said, “two weeks to flatten the curve and that’s it. Isolate only the people that are at high risk of dying — that’s all.”

Nagase is in Calgary speaking at the Freedom Talk conference running Friday and Saturday. Details on the conference are here.

For those not on Facebook, the video will also be available here on Rumble.

BC Liberals refuse to accept Gunn as leadership candidate

“LEOC concluded that to approve Mr. Gunn’s candidacy would be inconsistent with the BC Liberal Party’s commitment to reconciliation, diversity and acceptance of all British Columbians,” said the party in a statement.

Published

BC Liberals have told Aaron Gunn he will not be allowed to stand as a candidate for the leadership of the party.

“After a thorough review of Mr. Gunn’s statements on social media, both public and private, and after having provided Mr. Gunn with the opportunity to respond to concerns raised by certain of those statements, LEOC concluded that to approve Mr. Gunn’s candidacy would be inconsistent with the BC Liberal Party’s commitment to reconciliation, diversity and acceptance of all British Columbians,” said the party in a statement.

Gunn was less than pleased with the decision.

“Today, it became clear that conservatives, and all British Columbians who believe in common sense and freedom of speech, are no longer welcome in today’s BC Liberal party. I will be releasing a full statement later today, but rest assured, if you think this fight is over, you couldn’t be more wrong,” he tweeted.

Gunn tweet

“mm 7 unelected, non-Indigenous insiders decided my candidacy would be inconsistent with “reconciliation”… Meanwhile, it was ACTUALLY supported by the only Indigenous person in the race,” he tweeted.

“Imagine being so entitled and arrogant that you believe a small group of unelected insiders should decide the future direction of a political party and not its democratic membership.”

Gunn announced on October 9 he would try and run for the leadership.

“I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines … the policies being enacted are the antithesis to common sense,” Gunn told an enthusiastic crowd assembled at the Greek Community Centre in Saanich — a municipality of the Greater Victoria area — moments ago.

“For too long, politicians have promised us one thing, but failed to deliver once in power … under the NDP things have gotten worse,” he said, referring to John Horgan’s government.

“I think it’s time for a change, I think it’s time for renewal and I think it’s time for common sense,” he said moments before officially announcing his candidacy.

Gunn, 31, who planned on running under the banner: Bring Back Common Sense, tried to join six others — Gavin Dew, Kevin Falcon, Michael Lee, Val Litwin, Ellis Ross, and Renee Merrifield — who’ve already tossed their hats into the leadership race ring.

His said priorities would have included scrapping the carbon tax, “serious” health care reform, and opposing vaccine passports.

“I’ll be the only one in the race opposing those, as I believe I have a substantially different approach than the other candidates. I’ve got very clear positions on on the development of resources, on supporting our forest industry, on supporting our energy industry, and a whole bunch of other things.”

Gunn said changes need to come from the top.

“I think it all starts with political leadership,” he said.

“When (police) feel they don’t have the political support, or no one’s got their back, I think that trickles down into what you see in everyday policing issues. I know many police — I’ve talked to people in the Vic PD, for example — they know sometimes they arrest one of these people, and they do all the paperwork only to see them back on the streets in just a matter of days, or even less.

“So I think there’s lots of problems and, provincially, there’s only so much you can do, but you can direct prosecutors to pursue maximum sentences, and to pursue people who are repeatedly and flagrantly breaking the law.”

Gunn served Canada during a three-year stint in the Army Reserves straight out of university, before he went to work for the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation where he founded and became executive director of the “Generation Screwed” initiative which battled government debt, among other issues.

He’s been on the fringes of the political scene for the past three years or so, and his YouTube videos have garnered more than 50 million views and tens of thousands of followers, making him one of British Columbia’s most listened to political voices. (As an example, his Facebook followers number 20,000 more than Premier John Horgan).

Gunn said he not only wants to rebrand the BC Liberal Party — which is not affiliated with its similarly named federal party, but to rename it, as well, to reflect his and other party member’s conservatism.
