ER doc invites Kenney to visit ICUs to see the front lines of the war on COVID

The province has been battered with the Delta variant of the virus since the start of September and has seen hospital ICUs filled to overflowing and climbing death tolls.

An Alberta emergency room doctor has sent an open invite to Premier Jason Kenney and Health Minister Jason Copping: Come visit our ICUs for a first-hand look at the front lines of the battle against COVID-19.

“We’ve been told, through the endless months of this relentless pandemic, to keep our distance to stay safe. From the outside, where life almost feels normal, it is understandable to want to keep your distance from the unfathomable horrors we face in the hospitals every day,” said the letter, signed by Dr. Paul Parks, head of emergency medicine for the Alberta Medical Association.

“To break the disconnect, we urgently need you to see what we are experiencing. We would like to formally invite you to come visit an Edmonton ICU as soon as possible to see it for yourselves.”

The province has been battered with the Delta variant of the virus since the start of September and has seen hospital ICUs filled to overflowing and climbing death tolls.

Parks told Kenney space is only being found in some ICUs because other patients are dying in such large numbers.

And, he added, it’s taking a heavy toll on health care workers.

“Even as we create more unconventional beds, we cannot create an endless ability for our health care workers to carry this impossible burden. We will be paying the price of this physical and moral suffering for years to come,” Parks wrote.

“Unfortunately, we will see the immediate consequences in the days and weeks to come, with staff simply unable to maintain the standard of care necessary to keep such gravely ill patients alive. Health care workers are doing all they can with every fibre of their being, but human capacity is not an infinitely renewable resource.”

“Alberta is at the edge of a precipice, but it is a precipice that right now only we can see. Please let us show it to you.”

    So many lies, so much damage done by those bought and paid for by big pharma and TRUDY. EVERY promise made broken. Meanwhile there is still NO verified proof CV19 was isolated. The variants are coming from ALL you who took the baby experiment. YOU are the super spreaders and should be quarantined. Israel is living it.

    Monoclonal antibody treatment . . . working great in Florida keeping people out of Hospital and on the road to recovery.

    Are Canadian Health Officials so ignorant they can’t look around the world and find out what works . . . or do they just consult Justin Trudope?

    In almost 2 years NOT ONE of these institutions have ever offered any Therapeutic information that would keep Canadians healthy and out of the Hospital. Why is that?

    As the Hospitals fill with the VAXED . . . they can’t even admit their gross failure . . .

    WHY? WHY? WHY? Are these ICU’s overflowing? With early treatment this can be avoided completely. When will AHS and Kenny get off their ass and allow doctors to be doctors.

    Lol, these attention whores in medicine just keep seeking their 15 minutes.

    I know a number of people in the hospitals and there is nothing unusual happening with volumes.

    Here is a better idea, fully privatize medicine and get the government out of it.

    Poor planning and asinine decisions are the key problems with AHS.Firing health care workers who won’t take the shot because of their personnel beliefs by cockwomble leaders speaks to the issue.

    A cursory Google search shows that in 2010, the same Mr. Parks (sorry, my D key keeps printing as M) 😉 said our acute care system was near “catastrophic collapse.” Just another credentialed political operative. The more important question still remains as to whether the detestable Kenney is in league with the AHS 5th column, or is merely a victim of their machinations?

    The jurisdictions that didn’t do lockdowns and coerced mass vaccination are not having any problems at all and their pandemic is now over.

    Come see it and then what? Come see the horror of the suicides and bankruptcies from shutting down. Come see the horrors of families falling apart, of children who don’t know how to smile because they are masked all day. Come see the horrors of the damage from the jab. It is all horrible. Stop politicizing the impacts of this man made virus.

Top Ontario doc says separating vaxxed and unvaxxed best way to get COVID under control

Ontario has had more than 626,000 cases of COVID-19 which has left more than 10,000 people dead.

One of the ways to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control is to stop “the mixing of unvaccinated and vaccinated,” says Ontario’s chief medical officer.

“Basic means of protecting individuals is stopping the mixing of unvaccinated and vaccinated,” said Dr. Kieran Moore at a Tuesday press conference.

“And if our cases continue through and after the holidays we would make recommendations of government to continue the certification process in play. But we’ll continue to review the data. We do have a very robust testing strategy in Ontario for the winter months as we’ve released previously. We’ve purchased … 11 million rapid antigen test for all students in Ontario.”

Moore was asked whether COVID-19 is “something we’re just going to have to learn to live with” and whether it would ever go away.

“We have a long ways to go with the World Health Organization and other international organizations to try to decrease the number of individuals in which this virus can mutate and/or spread,” he said.

“But I do see a time when we’ll have low, endemic rates and it will turn out to be like influenza or other winter respiratory viruses where there’s a seasonality to it, where it does have an intermittent impact on our health-care system and like influenza, you need an annual vaccine to protect against it.”

Trudeau’s beach denier demoted

Trudeau was photographed twice on a beach in Tofino after deciding to skip the first day of a holiday he created — the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.

The Justin Trudeau spokesman who told reporters the prime minister “wasn’t on a beach” when he was, has been demoted, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Trudeau was photographed twice on a beach in Tofino after deciding to skip the first day of a holiday he created — the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.

Trudeau had promised to “set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government.”

Alex Wellstead will be “taking on new challenges” as press secretary to the industry minister, the Prime Minister’s Office said yesterday.

Wellstead in a statement called it “a very difficult decision to make.” He had worked as Trudeau’s official spokesman for 20 months.

Wellstead on September 30 issued misleading statements to conceal the fact Trudeau spent the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation at a beach resort in Tofino, B.C.

“He wasn’t on a beach,” Wellstead told The Canadian Press at the time. Global News and the weekly Chilliwack Progress photographed Trudeau strolling on the beach and enjoying a glass of beer on a beachfront patio.

The Prime Minister’s Office claimed Trudeau was in private meetings in Ottawa. Staff flew an Indian Residential School “survivors’ flag” and issued a solemn statement in Trudeau’s name.

“We remember the children who never made it home,” it said.

Wellstead did not explain his conduct.

“You as a communicator need to understand everything,” Wellstead said in a March 30 interview with public relations students at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ont.

The prime minister in 2015 Ministerial Mandate letters said officials must be truthful and transparent.

“Members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, indeed all journalists in Canada and abroad, are professionals who by asking necessary questions contribute in an important way to the democratic process,” wrote Trudeau.

“Your professionalism and engagement with them is essential.

“We have committed to set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government. It is time to shine more light on government to ensure it remains focused on the people it serves.

“Government and its information should be open by default. If we want Canadians to trust their government, we need a government that trusts Canadians.

“It is important that we acknowledge mistakes when we make them. Canadians do not expect us to be perfect. They expect us to be honest, open and sincere in our efforts to serve the public interest.”

Trudeau on October 6 apologized for the Tofino holiday.

“Traveling on September 30 was a mistake and I regret it,” the prime minister told reporters.

“What made you decide to take a personal trip on a day your government set aside to honour the victims and survivors of residential schools?” asked a reporter.

“Like I said, it was a mistake,” replied Trudeau.

Feds threaten regulated businesses with COVID fines

The labour department in a statement said it would rewrite the Canada Labour Code to mandate vaccination for some 955,000 private sector employees in federally regulated sectors like air transportation, banking, broadcasting, grain milling, marine shipping, railways and interprovincial trucking.

If they don’t mandate vaccination of workers, the Labour department is threatening to levy cash fines against airports, banks, radio stations and other federally-regulated employers, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

But the Liberals stopped short of repeating an earlier threat to strip workers of legal rights to challenge vaccine orders.

“It is time to move on,” said Government House Leader Mark Holland.

“Get vaccinated. That’s what Canadians expect to have happen.

“I think the country understands we have now 90% of Canadians who have had their first injection, over 86% with their second. All workplaces across the country” should promote vaccinations, he added.

The labour department in a statement said it would rewrite the Canada Labour Code to mandate vaccination for some 955,000 private sector employees in federally regulated sectors like air transportation, banking, broadcasting, grain milling, marine shipping, railways and interprovincial trucking.

First Nations businesses will be exempt.

“Employers who do not comply with their obligations under the Canada Labour Code may be subject to compliance and enforcement measures including administrative monetary penalties,” the notice said.

“The government will consult with key stakeholders, including representatives of small and medium-sized employers, as it works expeditiously to finalize the new regulations which would come into force in early 2022. The government will also develop resources to help federally regulated workplaces implement the COVID-19 vaccination requirements.”

The notice made no reference to a liability shield proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the election campaign. Trudeau on September 1 said a re-elected Liberal cabinet would shield employers from any legal challenge of vaccination orders.

“We’ll stand firm on our commitment,” said Trudeau, adding: “We’ll protect businesses that mandate vaccinations from unjustified lawsuits.”

Canadians who declined a COVID-19 shot were “more than just 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,” said Trudeau.

“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?”

The Liberal Party in its September 1 campaign platform stated: “A re-elected Liberal government will table legislation 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.”

Compulsory vaccination breaches federal law, according to a May 19 statement by Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien and 1996 National Immunization Report by the Department of Health.
