Lawyer sends letter to College of Physicians and Surgeons demanding resignations over mandated vaccines

In an interview with the Western Standard, Lawyer Jeffrey Rath said those he represents are “horrified” the College would be supporting mandatory vaccination.




Alberta lawyer Jeffery Rath has sent a letter to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA) demanding every member of the council resign.

Rath, from the Foothills law firm Rath & Company, was retained by a number of doctors “both vaccinated and unvaccinated” who have chosen to remain anonymous “given the veiled threats contained in recent correspondence directed at physicians in this province by the CPSA Council and the CPSA,” the Monday letter stated.

In the letter, Rath points to numerous alleged issues his clients believe have amounted to unethical conduct by the CPSA and CPSA council, including:

  • Taking “vindictive actions” against physicians in an effort to “silence” them
  • Interfering in patient autonomy
  • Colluding in the coercion of patients being forced a vaccine against their will
  • Controlling physicians’ ability to apply their best medical judgement for patients with regard to alternative treatments to COVID-19
  • Creating a “sky is falling” approach to the outbreak while not communicating the “vast majority of hospitalizations and deaths associated with COVID-19 are in populations over 70 years of age.”
  • Forcing health care workers and others to be injected with a COVID-19 vaccine against their will
  • Suggesting children under 18 be permitted to get vaccinated without parental consent
  • “Ignoring” the absence of long-term safety data
  • Interfering with a physician’s care and treatment of their patient by advising them to limit the granting of vaccine exemptions
  • Ignoring emerging data that “shows natural immunity is more than 10 times more effective than the mRNA injections in preventing COVID.”

The letter also calls into question the term “immunized” and suggests the term is misleading “given the limited protection now provided by the Pfizer/Moderna injections.”

Rath also accuses the CPSA of ignoring “real world safety data” and states the “vaccination program being adjusted on the fly underlines the experimental nature of these injections.”

Referencing violations of the Criminal Code of Canada, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Nuremburg Code, Rath concludes in the letter that “forcing injections on people through vaccine mandates constitutes an “assault” under the Criminal Code” as well as “violates the CPSA’s own Standards of Practice.”

The letter goes on to state the banning of Ivermectin for COVID treatment is a “further example of the CPSA Council unethically interfering in the provision of medical services to citizens of Alberta by their physicians” and points to a number of studies on the anti-parasite drug.

The CDC, FDA and Health Canada have not authorized the use of Ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 at this time.

“In this regard, we would respectfully request that every member of the CPSA Council that publicly supports the present coercive injection program of the AHS and who is not willing to take a stand for the individual autonomy and dignity of physicians, nurses, health care workers and citizens of Alberta, immediately resign from the Council of CPSA,” the letter demands.

In an interview with the Western Standard, Rath said those he represents are “horrified” the CPSA would be supporting mandatory vaccination.

“The college (CPSA) or anyone else has no right to force anyone to be vaccinated against their will.”

“AHS (Alberta Health Services) doesn’t want to acknowledge that those in the hospitals and those that are dying are the ones who are typically in hospitals and dying. The aged and those with comorbidities.”

“The only true emergency here is that we will soon have fewer and fewer nurses and doctors because they are leaving in droves due to these vaccine mandates,” Rath said.

Rath said he and his clients will wait for a response from the College before they determine their next step.

    Just wow! This is great! As a retired nurse with 30 years experience in Public Health including managing a large city school immunization program, I have been appalled at the medical tyranny. I have sent several letters to my elected officials which includes much of the information shared in this letter to the CPSA. More people need to be writing their politicians; otherwise, the voters are seen as consenting to all this tyranny. What is hopeful is that there will be a reckoning…

    Thank-you Melanie Risdon for writing this story. The Global Covid Summit, that took place in September, showed that doctors around the world are speaking out against regulatory boards such as the The College of Physicians and Surgeons. It is getting harder to find proof of this summit, but here is a recent article.

    The big question is ; will these head shed doctors have to testify under oath; will they delay delay to attend the trials. There will be a deluge number of law suites and many class action suites as well.With the backlog in the courts will anyone alive today see it happen.The right action but as a favourite Saskatchewan politican said delay delay delay.

    Every member of the CPSA should not only resign but should be investigated for collusion with big Pharma.

    Thanks for covering this Melanie. I hope Western Standard is seeking Freedom of Information documents that support (or contradict) the bed count info, the deaths from Covid and how many had pre-existing conditions, the number of people with ONE vaccination that ended up in hospital, even when they don’t meet the 14 day window.

    We need transparent and truthful information. Don’t tell me that someone who has spent a lifetime in school, residency and practice is going to give it all because the inoculation is safe and effective. You have to be fully into the cult to buy into that narrative.

    To gain accreditation with the College of Physicians, candidates must pass a criminal record check and be people of high character. I’m glad someone has finally suggested that colluding to assault someone is criminal….. and as such the council should resign.

    The Wuhan Virus has exposed the abject Corruption in the Provincial & Federal Health Departments. Drs. have been kept from actually practicing Medicine for the last 2 years by these tyrants.

    Hopefully there will be many more lawsuits . .

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.




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.




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.




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.
