WATCH: Emergency doctor says authorities are ‘standing in the way of life-saving medications’

“Not even 24 hours after getting Ivermectin, two out of my three patients were almost completely better.”

A B.C. emergency doctor helping in Alberta hospitals says he was relieved of duty for administering Ivermectin to patients in a small central-Alberta hospital.

Dr. Daniel Nagase graduated from Dalhousie University in 2004 and went on to work as an emergency doctor for 10 years. In 2015, Nagase went on to practice in rural, under-served communities in Alberta.

Nagase spoke at the Vancouver Art Gallery last Friday for the 75 Anniversary of the Nuremberg Code and shared his experience in the Rimbey, Alta. hospital while he was caring for three COVID19 patients in September.

“All the patients were on oxygen and extremely short of breath. The only medication these patients were on was steroids, a medication that will decrease inflammation, but increase the chances of a bacterial infection by suppressing the immune system,” said Nagase.

Speaking with the patients, Nagase suggested they try Ivermectin, an anti-parasite drug that’s been blacklisted for the treatment of COVID-19, yet has shown promise in recent ongoing studies.

“All three patients wanted to try Ivermectin,” said Nagase.

Nagase wasn’t able to find any at the hospital and said the Red Deer Hospital’s Central Pharmacy “refused to send Ivermectin” telling him it was “useless for COVID.”

He was then contacted by Dr. Gerald Lazarenko, the provincial medical director for pharmacy services for Alberta Health Services (AHS) who “insisted that Ivermectin had no place in the treatement of COVID.”

In the meantime, Nagase says he reached out to the local pharmacy for Ivermectin and started his three patients on Hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug approved to treat autoimmune conditions.

“I also started Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc,” said Nagase, who added he gave them Salbutamol and Flovent inhalors along with the antibiotic Azithromycin.

Nagase said by late that afternoon the town pharmacist was able to acquire Ivermectin from an agriculture supply. The pharmacist double-checked and confirmed the product was the exact same as that used for humans and Nagase then provided the appropriate dose to his patients according to their weight.

Within hours of obtaining the Ivermectin, Nagase says he got a call from Dr. Jennifer Bestard, the central zone medical director, informing him he was “forbidden from giving Ivermectin to patients.”

“She said it was a violation of AHS policy to give Ivermectin for COVID.

“But that wasn’t good enough. The next day she called the hospital and gave me 15 minutes notice that I would be relieved of my duties.”

Nagase confirmed an hour later a local doctor arrived to replace him.

“They didn’t even want me to check up on the patients who I gave Ivermectin to,” he said.

“Not even 24 hours after getting Ivermectin, two out of my three patients were almost completely better. They were out of bed walking around and all the crackles I heard in their lungs from the day before were gone. All it took was about 18 hours and one dose of Ivermectin.”

Nagase said his third patient, a 95-year-old, stayed the same but “didn’t get any worse like she had done the night previous.”

“I found out later that no sooner had I left Rimbey hospital, the next doctor who came to replace me stopped the antibiotics, stopped all the vitamins, she even stopped the patient’s inhalers, to help her breathe.”

Nagase has since learned that two of the patients he treated had both left the hospital that week.

“No doctor would take away antibiotics and inhalers for any viral pneumonia, never mind COVID. No doctor would do that to any patient with a pneumonia. Unless they were … Well I’ll let you think about that,” said Nagase in his speech.

Nagase says he has been banned from hospital practice throughout all of Alberta by AHS Chief Medical Officer Dr. Fraincois Belanger. He also says after he filed a complaint against Dr. Lazarenko for withholding a life-saving medication from patients, “the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons forbade doctors and pharmacists from giving patients Ivermectin.”

“There is something malicious going on. I hope you can all see the bigger picture.”

The Western Standard reached out to AHS for a comment on Dr. Nagase’s allegations and was told to refer to a statement shared on their Twitter account.

The tweet says AHS is aware of the speech made by Dr. Nagase and says they do not approve of the use of Ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.

“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.

“Requirements from provincial regulatory bodies for medical staff must be adhered to. Registrants of these governing bodies must not provide care that does not meet the expected standards of their profession.”

    Melanie, how about digging in and tell the real story here about exactly why this government and others are doubling down with this draconian policy that they know full well is NOT in the best interests of Albertans. What is the real story behind the Pfizer/Moderna contracts? The public deserves to to told the truth.

    I have sent this and numerous other testimonials from doctors and scientists who are speaking out about this travesty to Jason Kenney. I am keeping a file on all of this and hopefully the day is not far away when everyone of the people involved in this are put on trial for their crimes against humanity.
    Each and every one of us must let Jason Kenney know that he cannot get away with this. His day of reckoning in a court of law must take place. SOON

    Over 3,000 Doctors and Scientists Sign Declaration Accusing COVID Policy-Makers of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’

    “Physicians’ Declaration” produced by an international alliance of physicians and medical scientists strongly condemns the global strategy to treat COVID, accusing policy-makers of potential “crimes against humanity” for preventing physicians from providing life-saving treatments for their patients and suppressing open scientific discussion.

    The document states that “one size fits all” treatment recommendations have resulted in needless illness and death.

    Time to look into some of the Govt. Drs. & so-called Health Experts for corruption . . .

    Indian Bar Association Charges WHO Chief Scientist for Mass Murder

    The Indian Bar Association is charging WHO chief scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan with the mass murder of Indians. Dr. Swaminathan spoke against the use of Ivermectin in the Tamil Nadu province with the consequence that Ivermectin’s use was blocked and Covid cases skyrocketed with deaths increasing ten-fold.

    In the provinces where Ivermectin was used—Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Goa— Covid cases declined sharply by 98%, 97%, 94%, and 86%. This success, which cleared large areas of India from Covid, was kept from you by the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, AMA, Biden, Schumer, Pelosi, and the rest of the criminals who control the narrative.

    Acting for the Indian Bar Association, Dipali Ojha said the WHO official is accused of misconduct because she used her position as a public health official to further the agenda of special interests to maintain an Emergency Use Authorization for the lucrative vaccine industry.

    A quick review of Japan’s Worldometer shows a dramatic spike starting in mid-July and peaking near the end of August.

    Japan recorded 26,121 daily COVID-19 cases on August 22, 2021 (a record high).

    On July 1st, 2021, Japan had 14.7% fully vaccinated and 26.8% partially vaccinated.

    By the peak case date of August 22, 2021, Japan reached 41.1% fully vaccinated and 52.9% partially vaccinated.

    Despite half the country having at least one dose, Japan had a record high COVID-19 case tally.

    While cases plummeted in September, there’s a convenient piece of information the mainstream media forgets to tell us.

    On August 19th, 2021, Japanese doctors started prescribing Ivermectin for COVID-19 cases.

    Vaccinated or unvaccinated, Ivermectin has shown tremendous results in early treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19.

    I first reported on Ivermectin’s positive results in India 9 months ago.

    And it wasn’t the experimental COVID-19 jabs that likely contributed to the surge to begin with.

    The dramatic decline began after the widespread use of Ivermectin.

    WHO is running the program in Canada . . .

    On Jan. 28, 2020, four weeks after Taiwan had alerted WHO that a mysterious respiratory illness was spreading in China, WHO had not yet taken action and continued to praise China.

    Tedros even praised China for their transparency and said the Chinese president had “shown ‘rare leadership’ and deserved ‘gratitude and respect’ for acting to contain the outbreak at the epicenter,” the Sunday Times reported. “These ‘extraordinary steps’ had prevented further spread of the virus, and this was why, he said, there were only ‘a few cases of human-to-human transmission outside China, which we are monitoring very closely.’”

    Speaking with the Sunday Times, professor Richard Ebright of Rutgers University’s Waksman Institute of Microbiology in New Jersey, said it was this close connection that ultimately steered the course of the pandemic:

    “Not only did it have a role; it has had a decisive role. It was the only motivation. There was no scientific or medical or policy justification for the stance that the WHO took in January and February 2020. That was entirely premised on maintaining satisfactory ties to the Chinese government.

    “So at every step of the way, the WHO promoted the position that was sought by the Chinese government … the WHO actively resisted and obstructed efforts by other nations to implement effective border controls that could have limited the spread or even contained the spread of the outbreak.

    “It is impossible for me to believe that the officials in Geneva, who were making those statements, believed those statements accorded with the facts that were available to them at the time the statements were made. It’s hard not to see that the direct origin of that is the support of the Chinese government for Tedros’s election as director-general …

    “This was a remarkably high return on [China’s] investment with the relatively small sums that were invested in supporting his election. It paid off on a grand scale for the Chinese government.”

    “Red Deer Hospital’s Central Pharmacy “refused to send Ivermectin” telling him it was “useless for COVID.”” ? ? ?

    So a Pharmacist is now overruling Drs.? That is quite insane . . .

    But this is a result of Canada’s inept HC system that has bought into the Corrupt WHO CCP Dogma and is Killing Canadians by the 1000s by withholding Drugs that we know work in other jurisdictions.

    Kudos to Dr. Nagase for stepping up and actually Practicing Medicine in Canada. Most Cdn Drs. it appears would watch you Die rather than risk their standing with the Medical Associations.

    Canada’s Cuba Style HC system has been failing for Decades and now we all know it !

    Just looked at some statistics compiled on the site of jccf.ca (they draw these numbers from govt of alberta). Over the week of 9/23 to 10/01 there were 120 covid mortalities. Of those, 103 were over the age of 60 and 92 over the age of 70. This is still a virus that is disproportionately taking the lives of people who could are known to be at risk and could be selectively separated and protected. Instead we have monomaniacal hysteria, health care authoritarianism and grotesque government policies.

    I have lost all respect for our medical profession.

    I am aware of a person suffering a massive stroke in less than 24 hours after receiving first dose of vaccine. They later died. The physicians assured the spouse it was not related!!

    It is clear there is a deliberate, malicious attempt to ensure that this crisis continues and that any alternatives to vaccines are maligned and not allowed.

    Patients are left to die on purpose! There can be no other explanation.

    Dr Charles Hoffe and Dr Nagase are heroes! There will be a special place in hell for all of the parties involved in this.

BC top doc says declining vaccine protection over time means more boosters needed

Data from Israel — which has seen a steady increase in COVID-19 infections since June 2021, despite a high vaccination rate — showcases the transient nature of the jabs efficacy.

mm

Published

on

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has a Christmas present for British Columbians, and no, it’s not thousands of health-care workers getting their livelihood back — but rather: more COVID shots.

Health authorities announced Tuesday that COVID-19 booster vaccines will soon be available to the general population, making BC the first province in Canada to do so.

The announcement comes less than one week after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ensured nationwide booster shots for the coming years.

The province says “BC’s elderly and most at-risk” will be prioritized through the December holiday, but as of January 2022, boosters will be available for all British Columbians 12 and older.

Those registered in the Get Vaccinated System will receive a notification when it’s time for a booster jab, roughly 6-8 months after their previous dose.

“Our vaccines are highly effective. However, we are starting to see a gradual decline in protection over time. As a result, we are taking the proactive step of expanding boosters to everyone in our province,” said Henry.

Data from Israel — which has seen a steady increase in COVID-19 infections since June 2021, despite a high vaccination rate — showcases the transient nature of the vaccines efficacy.

Israel’s response, in an attempt to get cases down again, was to require booster shots after six months of one’s second dose in order to be considered “fully vaccinated.” Now officials in Israel are discussing the need for dose number four.

In BC, booster shots will not be included in the BC Vaccine Card for access to various settings — at least not yet — but the number of British Columbian’s lacking trust in the governments word grows steadily.

In May, 2021, Henry said “there is no way that we will recommend inequities be increased by the use of things like vaccine passports for services with public access here in British Columbia.”

Fast forward five months — vaccine passports are now enforced with no medical or religious exemptions, non-compliant businesses are being shut down, and workers are being removed from their jobs by the thousands for not getting the shot.

“I bet most politicians in Canada would admit that even they were surprised how malleable much of the public has proven to be,” writes political columnist, Spencer Fernando.

“No amount of hypocrisy or shifting narratives seems to stop a large number of Canadians from succumbing to fear-based appeals on the ‘need’ to restrict our rights and freedoms.”

Whether or not the fear is justified remains a point of vigorous dispute among scientists — with some focusing on the accuracy of BC’s testing methods when it comes to the data surrounding COVID deaths, hospitalizations, and positive cases as a whole.

“We don’t differentiate people that have died from COVID and have died with it,” said Dr. Steven Pelech, president and chief scientific officer at Kinexus Bioinformatics Corporation, and chair of the Scientific and Medical Advisory Committee at the Canadian Covid Care Alliance in an interview with the Western Standard.

Pelech argues the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are poorly done in BC due to a high cycle threshold (CT), which as a result yields a high percentage of false positives, thus crediting an inflated number of deaths to COVID.

The PCR test is a tool often used in medical and biological research labs to detect the presence or absence of a gene, and while the test can detect the presence of a virus if you are infected, it can also detect fragments of the virus post infection.

The higher the CT, the more likely it is to pick up fragments of inactive viral DNA.

“They may very well have the remnants of the viruses genetic material that they breathe in, or they may have already recovered from COVID,” said Pelech.

In contrast to Pelech’s words, Medical Director of the BCCDC, Dr. Mel Krajden says a high CT is necessary when using the PCR tests, arguing that despite a potential for false positives, it is needed to detect early infection.

“People don’t understand that in early infection you will get at very high CT a very low viral load, and then as the infection progresses you get a high viral load and a low CT,” Krajden told the Western Standard.

The test, however, does not differentiate between what may be an early infection vs what may be genetic debris that poses no threat.

“High levels of amplification increase your chances of picking up garbage, that’s the problem,” said Pelech.

“If you’re around 38 cycles, maybe one out of 10 results at that level is accurate, whereas the rest can be false positives.”

Krajden said the CT varies across jurisdictions in BC, but confirmed it is “typically in the range of 35-42,” and sometimes mid-40’s.

The province does not take the probability of false positives into account when reporting its COVID data.

Krajden said that regardless of how the PCR test is administered, the point of focus should be from a population prevention perspective, specifically vaccination — hence the booster shots.

“The single most effective way of shutting down this pandemic is having a population that is immune,” said Krajden.

“The vaccines protect people from severe disease and death, and they do an excellent job at doing that.”

While the actual level of protection against COVID-19 one obtains upon getting vaccinated is debated, it is widely agreed upon that the shots efficacy wanes over time — and that the class of antibodies produced by the jab do not prevent propagation of the virus within the airways.

Krajden did say that a vaccinated individual can be asymptomatic and have a high viral load — further confirming that vaccinated people spread the virus, often unknowingly.

“After vaccination you have lots of IgG antibodies in your circulation and there is not much at the site where the virus comes in, so you can receive and transmit,” said Pelech.

“And as for being a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’… nonsense. Total nonsense.”

UCP MLA Aheer demands Kenney resign, praises sex scandal whistleblower

“I want to take a moment to applaud her (Ariella Kimmel) for her strength and to demand the resignation of the premier. This is a failure of leadership and a failure of being human.”

Alberta UCP MLA Leela Aheer (Chestermere-Strathmore), has blasted Jason Kenney in a press conference and demanded the premier step down.

In a statement of claim, former chief of staff, Ariella Kimmel, detailed her time in a “poisoned work environment” and spoke of sexual harassment and the excess drinking she witnessed while working in the Legislature under Kenney’s government.

None of her allegations have been proven in court.

“I want to say how very sorry I am for Ariella who has a tremendous amount of courage and strength to be able to share her story,” said Aheer during a press conference Wednesday, following the explosive allegations Kimmel brought against the premier’s office.

“When somebody like her takes a step forward to say what happened to her and to come forward with the truth of this level, it makes us all take a pause about many things,” said Aheer.

“I want to take a moment to applaud her for her strength and to demand the resignation of the premier. This is a failure of leadership and a failure of being human.”

Aheer, former Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism, and the Status of Women, said Kimmel was her “lifeline to the premier’s office” calling her competent, strong and beautiful and said she “deserved to be treated with a completely different level of respect.”

“On behalf of anyone — and this is not a political issue, it’s not a particular party issue — this is an issue of people. It’s an issue of how we treat people who are coming forward with honesty and integrity about what has happened to them.”

Numerous tweets in response are calling on Aheer to “cross the floor” to join the NDP.

Richard Fantin tweeted: “A ‘strong woman’ or really strong person, would not continue to support a party that literally uses harassment as a matter of public relations policy. If you were ‘strong’ you wouldn’t need the UCP to back you and would have left long ago.”

“Cross the floor. Please,” tweeted former broadcaster Alicia Hope-Ross.

Aheer replied: “I’m sure people would be fine if I crossed the floor today. That would be completely understandable, but what does that do?

“I have a responsibility to stay put, make change, make it happen and call it out when it happens.”

When asked if she would launch a leadership bid to replace Kenney should he step down, Aheer said: “It would be completely self-indulgent to think about a leadership race at this time. It’s more important to make sure we get through COVID, but that doesn’t mean he (Kenney) has to be there.”

“Right now we can put an interim leader in, we have many many competent people in the ministry right now who can easily carry that forward until we get through COVID.”

UCP MLA claims Kenney knew about toxic workplace allegations

Kimmel’s lawsuit alleges sexual harassment and heavy drinking by ministers and staff in the premier’s office, which is responsible for overseeing ministries, CBC reported.

Published

A former UCP cabinet minister says Alberta Premier Jason Kenney knew about allegations of a toxic work environment in his government that included sexual harassment and heavy drinking.

“Ariella Kimmel is an incredible and courageous women (sic). Premier Kenney – you knew! Step down! ” tweeted Leela Aheer, UCP MLA for Chestermere-Strathmore.

Aheer was commenting on a lawsuit filed by Kimmel who claims she was fired after speaking out.

Kimmel’s lawsuit alleges sexual harassment and heavy drinking by ministers and staff in the premier’s office, which is responsible for overseeing ministries, CBC reported.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Kimmel has worked with the UCP government since May 2019, most recently as the chief of staff to the minister of jobs, economy and innovation from August 2020 until she was fired in February.

The statement of claim says Kimmel witnessed Agriculture and Forestry Minister Devin Dreeshen drinking with other ministers and staff and appeared “heavily intoxicated.”

Kimmel had an on-and-off relationship with Dreeshen prior to being appointed chief of staff in 2020,” the CBC report said.

She alleges after expressing her concern about how much Dreeshen had been drinking, she was confronted by the minister who “aggressively yelled at her to the point where she was in tears and a concerned bystander intervened.”

The statement also points to another incident two days later where another group was drinking in the minister of health’s office. Kimmel alleges the minister’s principal advisor, Ivan Bernardo, made sexually inappropriate comments to one of her female staff members.

Kimmel claims her report of the exchange to Chris Thresher, chief of staff in health, and the premier’s director of issues management, Matt Wolf, went unanswered for close to a month.

On November 17, Kimmel was asked to meet with Kenney’s principal secretary, Larry Kaumeyer where she shared about her interaction with Dreeshen and the sexual harassment by Bernardo.

Kimmel said she was told by Kaumeyer that Bernardo was “not going to be fired” but would be leaving his position at the end of the year anyway. Kimmel said her other concerns were not addressed. Kaumeyer is no longer working in the premier’s office.

Kenney’s chief of staff, Pam Livingston, sent a statement to the CBC.

“Sexual harassment is abhorrent and has no place in our workplace and society,” Livingston wrote.

“This government has zero-tolerance for harassment and takes all allegations of this nature very seriously. We are fortunate to have a highly skilled and diverse public service and we are committed to providing a safe and productive workplace for all of them.”

Kenney’s office says they cannot comment as it is a confidential human resource matter and added that Kimmel’s termination was unrelated to the allegations raised in her lawsuit.  

Kimmel was terminated on February 5 even though she has been told by Kaumeyer she would not be fired for bringing her concerns forward. She is seeking more than $399,000 for damages and the salary owed to her until her contract would have expired in May 2023.

Kimmel says she is unaware of any formal investigation launched by the premier’s office surrounding her complaint brought forward against Bernardo, who has since resigned in December 2020 to return to practicing law.

Damages Kimmel is claiming in the lawsuit include: “poisoned work environment,” fabricating and spreading rumours against her, failing to implement a robust sexual harassment policy, terminating her employment in reprisal, causing mental distress and reputational harm, and affecting her future employment opportunities.”
