WATCH: Sister of dead 14-year-old boy blasts Alberta Health for labelling his death COVID-related

“He died from Stage 4 brain cancer, not from covid. This is fake news,” said Spitzer in the post.




Simone Spitzer took to Facebook calling out Alberta Health for calling her 14-year-old brother’s passing a COVID death despite the fact he was on palliative care for Stage 4 brain cancer.

In the provincial government’s COVID-19 update on Tuesday, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw made mention of the boy’s death.

Although Hinshaw mentioned the boy had complex pre-existing medical conditions that contributed to his death, she included the boy’s passing with the reported 33 new COVID deaths over the long weekend.

Referencing an Edmonton City News story mentioning her brother’s death, Spitzer confirmed in her Facebook post “the 14-year-old on the article is my brother.”

“He died from Stage 4 brain cancer, not from covid. This is fake news,” said Spitzer in the post.

“He was diagnosed in January 2021, and hospitalized in August. Two days before his death he was tested for covid and it turned out positive.”

Spitzer goes on to request people share her post and inform others that this story is fake.

The Western Standard reached out to Alberta Health for comment but did not hear back in time for publishing.

    Have Cdn Politicians & Health Authorities taken millions from Pharmaceutical companies as they did in Australia?

    In 1976 the Swine Flu vaccine initially killed but three (3) people, and the local government(s) in nine (9) states, immediately discontinued to administer the vaccine. A short time later, twenty-five (25) people died and the Federal government said – ENOUGH! And, shut down the vaccine distribution for the entire country. (NY Times, Oct.13, 1976)

    The sociopathic global elite, who get older by the day whilst time is running out for their individualist eugenics version for the New World Order. Their life-long goals must not be achieved by others and they doggedly believe that they must be completed while they are still alive. A truncated list might include:

    David Rockefeller, who died in 2017, but still referred to the good people of the world, as “human weeds.”

    Baron Rothschild at 85, who believes that dominance lies in the control of the world’s currencies, i.e. the Federal Reserve.

    George Soros, now 90, believes that dominance is best achieved through chaos and destruction. It would appear that George may well get his way, sooner than later…

    What they and others such as Bill Gates represent is a global cabal of the most politically and economically powerful people in the world, with an overall heinous agenda, but each with its own individual mini-agendas, fighting to lead the charge, and because they are all sociopaths, each wants to be THE ONE…!

    The one major realization many will need to internalize is that we are at war, a war against the evil medical mandates of our own government, funded by the global elite, and to fully appreciate this, it is necessary for you to believe that the same cabal of evildoers who created the Wuhan coronavirus (see Event 201), are also suspected of being the ones who produced the spike-protein-ladened-Covid vaccines in order to implement their diabolical Great Reset.

    Everything is Covid now . . . Serial Liars like Dr. Hinshaw, Health Agencies and our feckless and stupid politicians have dragged this insanity out for almost 2 years.
    And the Govt Funded FakeStream Media has played right along . . .

    ALL over the world Hospitals are filling with the VAXED . . . except in Canada. Why is that? A Pharmaceutical company has just come out with a New Oral Covid Medication . . . looks remarkedly like Ivermectin but costs 400 Xs more.

    “Let’s Go Brandon” . . . and you could add Trudope, Kenney & Horgan !

    I wonder, just how many millions $$$ have been paid to our politicians and health tyrants. To ram fear, misinformation and the deadly jab onto the ever gullible public.
    This is crimes against humanity. They will not get to just say sorry and walk away.

    It’s highly likely he didn’t even have COVID. A positive result would have been from effects of the cancer, not a virus, which AHS knows very well.

    Shame on you Dr. Hinshaw, shame on you. You of all people with children, exploiting a child. How many other souls have you exploited to support the narrative and your pay cheque? May this boy now rest in peace and his family find the love and support they need to heal from his prognosis of brain cancer and his untimely death.

    Anyone who believes the politicians and the health experts is suffering from mental issues.

    It’s all a lie .

    Vaccines are most deadly after the second does up until 2 weeks … they are reported this way because of it.

    The efficiency is borderline after just a few months and require boosters.

    Everyone who rushed out to get needle rapped …. Enjoy the so called freedom and be sure to get your boosters.

    And as always be afraid of the unvaxxed. Your vaccine is the only way out and provides complete protection, except from the unvaxxed .

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.
