Top docs say unvaxxed can avoid COVID only by shutting themselves off from society

“It’s not absolute that anyone who is unvaccinated will get COVID,” said Njoo.




There’s no reason to believe all of Canada’s five million unvaxxed people will come down with COVID-19, says Canada’s deputy chief public health officer.

But to be able to avoid the virus, they would have to shut themselves off from society, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Dr. Howard Njoo earlier told reporters he considered vaccination a “personal choice” though he himself is fully immunized.

“It’s not absolute that anyone who is unvaccinated will get COVID,” said Njoo.

“They would have to take a look at what’s happening in their community and take extraordinary steps to avoid contact.”

The Public Health Agency said millions of Canadians remain unimmunized though overall vaccine coverage is 84% of eligible people.

“There are still over five million people eligible who haven’t been vaccinated,” Dr. Theresa Tam, chief public health officer, told a Friday press briefing.

“That creates pockets the virus can get into. The other thing is this virus has proven time and time again it can undergo evolution, so we will have to monitor that.”

“Is it safe to say if you’re an adult in this country and you haven’t been vaccinated you’re going to get COVID?” asked a reporter.

“It does depend on where you are,” replied Dr. Tam.

“Obviously in areas where there’s high activity you’re more likely to get COVID. It depends. So if you’re an adult unvaccinated in an area where transmission is occurring, then there is a very good likelihood you’re going to get infected.”

“Maybe I can add to that,” said Dr. Njoo. “If you are an unvaccinated Canadian, theoretically yes, you could seal yourself off from the rest of society, withdraw from community life and limit your chances of coming in contact and becoming infected. I think that’s challenging for everyone.

“We’re all social beings and there are always basic things people need to do in terms of getting groceries. You can have it delivered. You can take extraordinary steps to limit any potential contact.”

Njoo on October 11 told reporters he, his wife and adult children were fully immunized but said he had acquaintances who were not.

“If they choose not to be immunized that’s their choice,” said Njoo.

“If a family member is not vaccinated, you should politely explain your situation. I’ve had conversations with friends who are having a tougher time with especially members of their family who are not vaccinated at all.

“There are consequences in terms of even family dynamics and others feeling safe about getting together. So I’ll leave it at that.”

    Huh,and these medical experts can’t figure out that a lot of these unvaccinated people have probably had Covid and now have lifetime immunity which gives them all herd immunity. So no need to hide out.

    The Italian Higher Institute of Health has drastically reduced the country’s official COVID death toll number by over 97 per cent after changing the definition of a fatality to someone who died from COVID rather than with COVID.

    Italian newspaper Il Tempo reports that the Institute has revised downward the number of people who have died from COVID rather than with COVID from 130,000 to under 4,000.

    Yet another article written without FACTS! These “vaccines” do NOT stop one from GETTING or SPREADING Covid! They were originally designed to boost your body’s immunity and therefore lessen the severity of symptoms in case you caught covid. This may have been necessary for the most vulnerable in the worst hit areas such as nursing homes, but for the vast majority of society (that has a 99% survival rate POST infection), the risks from the shots did not justify their use. Dr. Robert Malone (the inventor of MRNA technology) has himself called these vaccines “leaky”, and has said the OVER VACCINATION of the world is leading to the more dangerous variants appearing. The vaccinated are carrying the same or HIGHER viral load as the unvaccinated. More and more statistics from places like Israel and the UK are coming out proving that hospitals are filling up with FULLY vaccinated individuals. On top of that, there is this:

    As of October 22, 2021, the VAERS report in the US had:

    17,619 dead from the vaccines, 86,542 hospitalizations, 94,163 urgent care, 130,795 doctor office visits, 7,706 anaphylaxis, 10,465 bell’s palsy. And it is believed that these numbers only represent 1% of total cases! It was a shocking statistic back in the 80’s when 7 people were killed from Tylenol poisoning, and the product was pulled from the shelves worldwide. But these numbers…nothing to see here folks.

    Running articles like the one above, once again makes your paper look like you are following the lemmings in the MSM and their big pharma pushed narrative. There are lots of facts out there from real experts that justify why people are saying no to vaccines. Maybe you could print more of them and less of the thinly veiled scorn of those who choose to think for themselves.

    Since there is no byline on this, a general comment—More BS from the globalists, who seem to have gotten their medical credential out of a box of popcorn.

    The big reason there are ICU cases off the charts is because EARLY TREATMENT OF COVID IS PROHIBITED BY THESE globalist clown “doctors”, and known medicine that could be presribed is also forbidden. Ask your family doctor if they can give you early treatment if you are diagnosed with Covid, and see what they tell you.

    If, say, bacterial pneumonia couldnt be treated by your family doctor, on pain of him/her losing their medical license, then bacterial pneumonia cases would be stacked up in the ICU’s.

    We KNOW that early treatment works. It worked for President Trump. And for his buddy Rudy Guiliani. And more recently, for podcaster Joe Rogan. It would work for you and your friends, if the criminal globalist “doctors” would just get out of the way. And the ICU emergency numbers would vanish, and the whole thing would be seen as the total BS that it is. Kenney and Notley (and a host of others) are the problem, not some virus they have named Covid.

    Been covid free since the start of this tyranny. Been sick with an odd flu a few times this past year, out of the ordinary for me and my family. Wife and I went in for antibody tests in Edmonton and had negative results. My doctor put our whole family on a vitamin regimen which we hoped would stop covid, guess what it has.

    If this was solely about the virus then a positive antibody test would be recognized as sufficient – but it is not, which speaks volumes.
    Do not comply!

    I didn’t think there were five million sane people in Canada. Saying that, a lot of folks who got the jab did so under pressure for their own reasons, I understand that. It’s the psychopaths and their minions that disgust me, and truth be known I don’t think there are as many of them as we’re led to believe; they’ll be going down shortly.

    So time and time again so called doctors don’t understand how herd immunity works. A vaccine normally has sterilizing or near sterilizing immunity. This means the virus does not replicate inside the cells of your body thanks to the vaccine. The vaccinated are protected from disease and also protect the unvaccinated around them because they don’t spread it around. With enough people vaccinated herd immunity is achieved. Vaccinated people can also go into areas where the virus is present and be rest assured they are protected. That is how it is supposed to work. These mRNA vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity therefore the vaccinated can catch it and spread it. Herd immunity in this scenario is not possible. It is only in the strangest of Orwellian times that getting a vaccine makes people afraid of catching the virus from others that have not had the vaccine, and in the same breath think that everyone should get that same vaccine that makes them vulnerable to catching the virus from others.

    Is Dr. Howard Njoo really that clueless?

    The vast majority of the “Un” VAXED have likely met The Wuhan Virus and have Natural Immunity which Scientists tell us is 20 to 27 Xs better than then now failing VAX.

    As Hospitals are filling with the Complications caused by the VAX, is it not time for the Doctors and despotic Politicians to wake the hell up? Some Nurses are now claiming that the “Delta” Variant is actually Reactions to the VAX.

    NS Wales in Australia has hospitals full . . . and according to one of the Doctors these only ONE of the Patients is not VAXED . . . the rest are ALL VAXED.

    More fear porn from a ‘Doctor’, who has likely only ever earned income off the public teat, and never worked as a ‘doctor’. Exactly like Deena ‘Mengele’ Hinshaw.

    Most of these public health “top docs” have never practiced medicine. Looking at Hinshaw’s biography she has never practiced medicine and has worked for the government ever since finishing a medical degree and then a masters in public health administration.

    Again, these bureaucrats again go on about the importance of getting the gene therapy jab to give “immunity” but then warn of the dangers of the unjabbed in that they can spread it to the jab. So I guess there is no immunity?

    These bureaucrats are not experts nor scientists and are way out of their league in this crisis. They may even be on the big pharma payroll and are not working for public safety but for government/corporate tyranny.

    “If they choose not to be immunized that’s their choice,” said Njoo

    Violating citizens Charter Rights for exercising their right to bodily autonomy is not choice. That is called coercion and it is illegal to coerce people into taking medical procedures. This is black and white there is no nuisance. You either live in a free society or you do not. Clearly Canada is not which is a disgrace.

Maskless teen student with asthma ostracized at Calgary Catholic school

“Kids in my class called me an ‘outsider’ which made me feel worse than I already felt,” said 14-year-old Darius.




A Calgary Catholic school has segregated and since banned a student from attending school for not wearing a mask, says the student’s parents.

And before that, teachers had even taped off an area around the boy’s desk “like a crime scene.”

Darius Lynn, a Grade 9 student at St. Helena Junior High School in Calgary, suffers from asthma and was permitted to go maskless at his desk during the 2020-2021 school year.

When Darius returned to St. Helena for the 2021-2022 school year, without his parents’ knowledge, he was advised he would be required to wear a mask full time.

He complied for the first few months but eventually reported to his parents in late November he was struggling to breathe while wearing the mask.

“I had no idea he was told to wear a mask again this year,” Darius’ mother Stephanie told the Western Standard.

“My husband and I just assumed he wasn’t needing to wear a mask again this year.”

Stephanie said she and her husband Paul reached out to the new principal and Darius’ teachers to request they allow their son the same exemption as the previous year.

They were told he would need a doctor’s note, which Stephanie said they have been unable to acquire.

“Mask exemptions are impossible to get,” said Stephanie.

“Right now, doctors are just too scared to write them.”

Stephanie said the school’s solution was to, “move my son’s desk into the hallway.”

Darius also spoke with the Western Standard and said the teenagers in his class referred to him as an “outsider” after he was moved into the hallway.

“When they did group projects, they would just send me to the library and I had to work on my own,” said Darius.  

“Kids in my class called me an ‘outsider’ which made me feel worse than I already felt.”

Stephanie said she and her husband tried to appeal to the principal, but “she wouldn’t budge,” so they reached out to the superintendent.

“We begged for her to let Darius back into the classroom but he ended up sitting out there for two weeks where he was discriminated against and basically ridiculed so we contacted the superintendent,” said Stephanie.

Stephanie said she emailed Chief Superintendent Bryan Szumlas with the Catholic School Board who helped the Lynns get their son moved back into his classroom.

“So, he was moved back into the classroom, which was good, but what we didn’t know was that his teachers taped off the floor around his desk like a crime scene,” said Stephanie.

“After they put tape on the floor around my desk, some of the kids in my class would step past the tape and pretend they couldn’t breathe,” said Darius, explaining the teasing he endured.

Darius said his teachers had witnessed some of the teasing, but said, “most of the time the teachers didn’t do anything about it.

“They (teachers) also made me wait a few minutes before I could move to my next class because there were basically a bunch of students in the halls.”

“It was just awful what they were doing to him. They were treating him like a walking disease and visibly segregating him,” said Stephanie.

Stephanie said Darius had to stay within his taped boundaries for about a week until Christmas break.

“After the break, the principal notified us that Darius wouldn’t be welcome back if he wasn’t willing to wear a mask,” said Stephanie.

“In fact, one of the communications with the school referred to his asthma as his ‘apparent asthma’ like we were making it up or something.

“They said he could move to the online schooling system or do their D2L system from home,” said Stephanie referring to a web-based learning system offered throughout the school division.

“He doesn’t do well online so we are just trying to do the best we can. He’s in Grade 9, he should be able to be with his peers to finish off his last year in middle school.”

Darius said he has mixed feelings about not returning to school.

“I’m just really upset that I don’t get to see my friends anymore, but I also feel like I have less distractions at home,” said Darius.

Stephanie said it’s been a hard year for Darius as he also had to walk away from community hockey due to the vaccination mandates and additional costs associated with frequent rapid testing.

“He is totally destroyed,” said Stephanie.

The Lynns have two other sons — both attending Notre Dame High School — one in Grade 11 who is special needs and one in Grade 12.

“The real kicker for us is that we have a special needs son who has never worn a mask, doesn’t social distance and we have never been required to show a doctor’s note for him,” said Stephanie.

“They have totally humiliated my son and I’m angry. We just want our son to be treated with dignity and compassion. He has lost hockey because of the mandates and now he isn’t allowed to go to school.”

The family has since been referred to Area Director Deana Helton with regard to their son’s situation.

The Western Standard has contacted the school principal along with Helton but hasn’t heard back yet.

Copping strikes EMS advisory committee amid system strains, red alerts

The Alberta Provincial EMS Advisory Committee will provide recommendations on a provincial EMS service plan by May.




Health Minister Jason Copping has appointed MLAs R.J. Sigurdson (Highwood) and Tracy Allard (Grande Prairie) to co-chair a new EMS committee to address “unprecedented” demands on the healthcare system.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is also rolling out a 10-point plan to maximize EMS system capacity.

The government listed many aggravating factors driving the system strains including “EMS staffing fatigue and illness, hospital offload delays, more requests for patient transfers, delays in receiving new ambulances and specialized vehicle parts caused by global supply issues.”

The province has seen a plethora of “red alerts” reported by EMS members and tweeted by the Union of Health Care Professionals @HSAAlbertaEMS. A red alert is when there are no available ambulances for emergency calls.

The government also reported a 30% increase in 911 calls in recent months. There was no mention of personnel shortages caused by the government’s COVID-19 mandate.

“Alberta’s government has been supportive of EMS throughout the pandemic. As we approach the peak of Omicron cases, we know the EMS system is seeing significant strain, which impacts service. We recognize this is a challenge and are taking immediate steps to improve emergency care access while we explore longer-term solutions,” said Copping.

AHS will immediately hire more paramedics, transfer low-priority calls to other agencies, and stop automatic ambulance dispatch to motor vehicle accidents with no injuries. AHS is also “launching pilot projects to manage non-emergency inter-facility transfers, and initiating an ‘hours of work’ project to help ease staff fatigue.”

Dr. Verna Yiu, president and CEO of AHS is confident these actions “will allow us to better support our EMS staff and front-line paramedics, and in turn this will ensure our patients receive the best care possible.”

Additionally, AHS will issue a request for proposals in February to conduct a third-party review of Alberta’s provincewide EMS dispatch system.

“The objective review by external health system experts will provide further opportunities to address ongoing pressures, improve effectiveness and efficiency through best practices, and provide the best outcomes for Albertans who call 911 during a medical event,” the government said.

The Alberta Provincial EMS Advisory Committee will provide recommendations on a provincial EMS service plan by May. Committee representatives include “contracted ambulance operators, unions representing paramedics, municipal representatives and Indigenous community representatives.”

Sigurdson said the committee will consider taxpayers’ needs.

“Albertans expect that when they call 911 in their time of greatest need, EMS will always answer. The committee’s goal will be focused around ensuring and improving service to Albertans while supporting the most critical piece of that equation: our EMS staff across all of Alberta.”

WATCH: O’Toole will not be welcoming the truckers in Ottawa

“It’s not for the leader of the Opposition to attend a protest on the Hill or a convoy, it’s up to politicians to advocate for solutions, in a way that’s responsible and respectable to the health crisis we are in.”




Conservative leader Erin O’Toole was asked six times during a Monday press conference about his stance on the truckers Freedom Convoy 2022, before giving a vague answer.

“We have been talking with the Canadian Trucking Alliance for several months,” said O’Toole told reports.

“We’ve seen a crisis in the supply chain coming for several months and we’ve proposed policies to try to help alleviate that. The most important of which is vaccines. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated.”

O’Toole press conference

Other specific. questions on the truckers’ comments were left with vague answers.

But the end of the conference O’Toole said it’s not his place to get involved.

“It’s not for the leader of the Opposition to attend a protest on the Hill or a convoy — it’s up to politicians to advocate for solutions, in a way that’s responsible and respectable to the health crisis we are in,” O’Toole said.

“We’ve been trying to tackle the supply chain crisis, encourage vaccination, not ignore problems and divide the country like Mr. (Justin) Trudeau does.”

O’Toole said policies cannot be put in place which could contribute to supply chain issues, as Canadians are already worried about their grocery bills.

O’Toole said he was focused on the economic strain Canadians are having, with record inflation, cost of living, 30% higher gas prices and the housing market’s rising costs,.
