Wildrose leader says Alberta government is ‘fearmongering’ as Pfizer pediatric vaccines roll out

“This does nothing but feed the fear and anxiety that this government and chief medical officer want to continue to spread and perpetuate.”




In Tuesday’s provincial COVID-19 update from the Alberta government, and one day before the launch of Pfizer’s pediatric vaccine program for children five to 11-years-old, the government highlighted the death of a child under two related to COVID-19.

Although Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw said COVID-19 was a “contributing factor” in the infant’s death, she said there were also, “complex pre-existing conditions that played a significant role,” but did not elaborate any further.

“The government is again causing fearmongering and anxiety amongst the population just before the release of the vaccine for kids,” Wildrose Independence Party (WIP) leader Paul Hinman told the Western Standard in an interview.

“Please tell us what pre-existing conditions were involved and how long they’ve had them,” said Hinman.

“They never mention that.”

Alberta Health launched the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination program for children aged five-11 on Wednesday with more than 394,000 pediatric doses arriving in Alberta.

A Government of Alberta release says the vaccines are currently being distributed across the province to Alberta Health Services (AHS) vaccination clinics and pharmacies in communities where AHS clinics are not nearby.

“The wait is nearly over for Alberta families with children between the ages of five and 11,” said Alberta Premier Jason Kenney.

“Now that there is a safe, effective vaccine approved for use for these youngsters, and with doses arriving in the province, we can start booking appointments.”

Vaccination appointments can be booked starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday with dates available as early as Friday.

Alberta Minister of Health, Jason Copping said the newly-arrived Pfizer pediatric vaccines are being sent to over 100 locations across Alberta to “safely and quickly make these doses available to young Albertans.”

Copping says 42,860 appointments were booked for the pediatric Pfizer vaccine as of 11:30 this morning. 

“This is very concerning that the government would release such a statement the day before it is releasing vaccines for children five to 11,” said Hinman.

“This does nothing but feed the fear and anxiety that this government and chief medical officer want to continue to spread and perpetuate.”

Hinman alludes to what he calls “carefully crafted” wording that “minimizes the fact of complex pre-existing conditions” which he feels should have been shared while pointing to an incident of “fake news” reported in an earlier provincial COVID-19 address.

In October, Hinshaw reported the death of a 14-year-old boy as COVID-19 related. Although she mentioned the boy had “pre-existing conditions” that contributed to his death, his sister, Simone Spitzer, quickly took to Facebook calling out the Alberta government for spreading “fake news.”

“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.”

 Within two days of Spitzer’s post, Hinshaw publicly apologized to the family and said she was sorry if her comments added to the Spitzer family’s grief.  

“Announcing this without any other details is reprehensible to me,” said Hinman adding he would be doing things “very differently” if he were in charge.

“First of all, if we are going to report on deaths, we need to be reporting on all deaths and break it down so there is better perspective,” said Hinman.

“Second, we shouldn’t be talking about cases; we should simply be talking about those who are sick.

“When you look at the actual stats, the idea that these children need to have an injection is not supported,” said Hinman, referencing a graph from the Government of Alberta website.

Data from the Alberta government website

Hinman cites low case rates of hospitalizations for two age groups under 20 years of age. He also points to even lower case rates of ICU admissions for those same age groups.

“These case rates don’t include how many of these children had pre-existing conditions. That’s important information to include and they (the government) never include that,” said Hinman.

“This vaccine hasn’t gone through proper safety trials and kids have a really low threat from COVID.”

But Hinshaw said: “The evidence is clear that the pediatric Pfizer vaccine is highly effective at limiting the spread of COVID-19.

“Parents who choose to have their young children vaccinated against this virus will not only help to protect their kids but their families and communities too.”

Hinman said what upsets him the most is “COVID segregation.”

“The unvaccinated are being blamed for spreading COVID but there is categorical evidence that the vaccinated are carriers as well,” said Hinman.

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

Parents are being encouraged to book first-dose appointments for their children aged five-11 through the Alberta Vaccine Booking System or by calling Health Link at 8-1-1.

AHS says the recommended interval between first and second doses for children aged five-to-11 is at least eight weeks. It is also recommended that children should not receive any other childhood vaccinations within 14 days of the COVID-19 vaccine.

    The Kenney government, along with the CPC, the Lieberals and that of the federal and provincial NDP are nothing more than reprehensible charlatans that will do everything they can to subject the citizens to their globalist agenda,. When the President of Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Stefan Oelrich come out at the WHF and admits that the mRNA is not a vaccine but a gene and DNA therapy drug people should really open their eyes as to why is this necessary!!! True vaccines have been a blessing to mankind as the vast majority would agree but screwing with peoples genes is a step way above expectable.

    Take your VAX and shut up is the Mantra of these despots . . . even if it Kills you . . .
    The vaccine is already proven to be dangerous. On November 12th, the CDC released the latest figures from the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System).
    To date, children ages 12 to 17 have suffered 22,782 total adverse events, including 1,400 rated as serious, and 29 reported deaths. Among the deaths: a 17-year-old girl from Washington, a 12-year-old girl from South Carolina, a 13-year-old girl from Maryland, and a 17-year-old girl from Texas. 59 cases of life-threatening anaphylaxis were reported in this age group – with 96% attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine. 552 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation) were reported, with all but 10 linked to Pfizer, and 131 cases of blood clotting disorders, with 100% linked to Pfizer.

    Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Taiwan have stopped vaccinating younger groups because of reported heart damage and other injuries. (See here, here, and here.) All four countries report worrisome rates of myocarditis and pericarditis, which cause heart inflammation, in younger people injected with Covid vaccines. And in Germany, federal data shows that children aged 12 to 17 were far more likely to be damaged from Covid vaccines than from Covid. Children were hospitalized post-vaccine with myocarditis, pericarditis, thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Around the world, children are suffering from Covid vaccines.

    Pfizer conducted NO long-term studies on their vaccine’s impact on kids – none, nada, zilch, zip.

    Fauci and the FDA admit they don’t know if the vaccines are safe for kids. “The real question that we have not yet answered is the safety data of an mRNA vaccine in young people vis-a-vis myocarditis,” Fauci told Reuters in October. And Dr. Eric Rubin, a voting member of the FDA panel that endorsed the vaccine and editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, casually noted, “We’re never going to learn about how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it. That’s just the way it goes.” In other words, what’s important to these “experts” isn’t protecting your kids. It’s protecting the vaccine, with your kids as the unfortunate guinea pigs.

    The Comment: NDP is running AHS…sounds right.
    Note: UCP says they will not have forced Vaccine for kids to attend school. Not mentioned in this article? Why? We will see if this holds true. JK said “there are virtually no child deaths from Covid in Alberta.

    In my opinion, unless a child has medical issues, they should not take an experimental Vaccine. Full Stop.

    We will kill 117 kids to save one child from dying from COVID in the 5 to 11 age range

    That’s according to a risk-benefit analysis done by risk-benefit expert Dr. Toby Rogers. His analysis has been viewed by over 22,000 readers. No mistakes were found. Nothing but praise.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I remember a time when drug companies would pay people to be part of their experimental trials. The willing individual was warned of the potential risks involved, would sign a waiver absolving the company from any damages, and then proceed to be a living guinea pig for cash.

    Now, families are lining up to freely offer their children as lab rats for an EXPERIMENTAL shot! Meanwhile, big pharma makes $1000.00 a second from their compliance, and has complete immunity from potential damages or death that may result.

    Increasingly the WIP is the single voice in Alberta speaking against government tyranny and the forced exposure of the population to very dangerous leaky “vaccines”.

    Unfortunately the bulk of the population are sheeple and fully committed to the fear porn of the UCP and NDP. But at least there is an option to point those who are coming awake. Many don’t have that option.

Do you know there have been more vaccination injuries in 20 months with this glory water, than the last 37 yrs. in the states there are 17,000 dead from this poison, but make sure you get your kids filled with this. The most vaccinated countries have more cases, and hospitilazions than before the so called vaccine. It’s a failure and doesn’t work more than a few months. How many boosters are people willing to line up,for

    It is absolutely outrageous as to what these regulating bodies are doing!!! You can find Dr. Ryan Cole’s videos online–he says it much better than I can. These prohibitions ARE DESIGNED TO fill up the ICU’s and generate deaths, rather than cure patients that need care. Exhibits #1, #2 and #3 are: President Trump, Rudy Guiliani, and Joe Rogan (all of which came down with covid and were cured in very short order since they found doctors who would engage in early treatment. The vaccines do not meet the definition of “vaccine”, and are experimental shots that are not safe, not effective, and whose long term effects are unknown.

    Child sacrifice is specifically condemned in the Bible. There is no justification for giving a child, that has less that a 1% chance of even getting mildly ill, an insufficiently tested (ie experimental)DNA altering, concoction to protect who?? There will literally be hell to pay for promoters and adherents to this cult.

    Thank You Mr Hinman!….Want to take part in a genetic jab experiment as an adult, fill your boots. Letting or convincing your under 18 to 12 this is for the team, shame on your sorry ass. Putting this in the arm of an under 12 is nothing short of child abuse! WTF here?! There is NO angle that this can be seen as acceptable in any way, NONE. I will not judge any adult for their personal choice but taking your goober into this game? Go see your proctologist to clear mind, get a grip on humanity!!!

    The drive by any means to get children shots has a hollow ring to any one with normal IQ. There have been no long term trials and nil info on what and how the trials if any conducted. The AHS socked their strategy on the shot and come hell or high water will not change course.Th danger is unknown at this stage of the shots, Best keep your sleeves rolled down and count on your immune system to do its job.

Sask Polytech ditches vax policy but burdens unvaxxed with testing costs

The Justice Centre is unsatisfied with the response of Sask Polytech and reiterated its intention to pursue legal action against the institution and against the University of Saskatchewan over its requirement for staff and students to be vaccinated for COVID-19.





The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is unsatisfied with the decision of Saskatchewan Polytech to reverse its vaccination requirement for staff and students because the institute does not recognize natural immunity and imposes testing costs on the unvaccinated.

On November 19, the Justice Centre sent Sask Polytech and the University of Saskatchewan letters demanding they reverse their requirement that all staff and students be vaccinated by January 1, 2022. 

On December 1, Sask Polytech reversed its “vaccinated only” policy but now requires unvaccinated staff and students to comply with testing three times a week at their own expense. In a press release, the Justice Centre called this “unacceptable.”

“Such testing requirements for students are even greater than the Saskatchewan government’s requirements for employees of its ministries. Sask Poly has also failed to recognize the compelling scientific evidence of natural immunity for those who have already recovered from Covid-19 and have proof of antibodies,” reads a JCCF press release on Saturday.

“Testing costs, which could exceed $200 per week, mean that only the wealthy and privileged can bear the burden,” stated Andre Memauri, the Justice Centre’s Saskatoon-based lawyer.

“Sask Poly, which has chosen to impose discriminatory testing requirements for staff and students, has the ability to acquire these tests at wholesale cost.”

The Justice Centre said it would commence legal proceedings against Sask Poly in the Court of Queen’s Bench unless Sask Poly immediately absorbs the testing costs and recognizes natural immunity. 

On October 28, the U of S and Sask Polytech announced mandatory vaccinations for all students, staff and faculty, removing the alternative of twice weekly testing which had been in place since the start of the school year. The Justice Centre will also commence legal action against the U of S for refusing unvaccinated students. 

On November 26, Global News reported a 19-year-old student was hospitalized briefly with breathing problems after receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The student’s mother, Michelle Marciniuk, publicly called for the university to reconsider its policy.

The U of S’ policy includes exemptions on medical and religious grounds in accordance with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code. But according to the Justice Centre, the university usually rejects exemption requests or does not respond to them for several weeks. Besides this, the university has made itself the arbiter of faith considerations for religious exemptions. Medical exemptions have become a difficult document for patients to receive in Canada, due to regulatory pressure on physicians not to provide them based on their medical judgement except in very rare circumstances.

The U of S crowns itself for academic freedom, diversity, equality, human dignity and a healthy work and learning environment, yet it has harshly terminated faculty for speaking on the hallmark principle of informed consent for Covid-19 vaccination of children,” stated Andre Memauri, a U of S alum. 

“Now, the U of S seeks to exclude and villainize those who decide for various reasons not to be vaccinated…Without question, our community has been through a great deal of difficulty and it requires these institutions to lead as vessels of science not ideology…The Justice Centre demands both schools follow the science and adopt policies that bring students together in the most safe and lawful manner.”

The letters sent to both schools from the Justice Centre on November 19 warned that the schools are seeking to deprive students from education on the basis of vaccination status, contrary to Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Sections 2(a), 7, and 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

CRA wants more tax filers to file online

The government’s own research shows millions of paper filers resist change.




The taxman is angry that too many Canadians are still filing by mail, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The government’s own research shows millions of paper filers resist change.

“Those who submit their taxes by mail most often say they use paper rather than filing electronically because it is simply how they prefer to do it, e.g. they do it out of habit, because ‘it’s what they are comfortable with,’ they like it, etcetera,” said a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) report.

“Just 13% cite security issues.”

Data show of 30.5 million tax returns filed this year a total 2.7 million or 9% were filed on paper. Millions of taxpayers, a total 4,234,772 including Internet filers, demanded refunds be paid by mailed cheque instead of direct deposit.

The CRA complained it would be “more timely and efficient” if all taxpayers used the Internet. The Agency spends $6.9 million annually mailing T1 general tax forms alone.

“There is still a sizable proportion of taxpayers who are conducting their business with the Canada Revenue Agency through paper rather than taking advantage of digital services which are much more timely and efficient,” said the report.

Research showed typical paper filers were working age men under 55 who completed their own return without a tax preparer, had a university degree, earned more than $80,000 a year and were more likely than other Canadians to prefer in-person teller service rather than online banking.

“The most important factor influencing why respondents file by paper instead of online is disinterest,” wrote researchers, who added: “Apathy is a barrier. Fifty percent of likely switchers say they are simply not interested in switching. Therefore the agency will have to demonstrate the value of switching.”

Findings were based on questionnaires with 2,000 taxpayers who filed returns by mail. The Agency paid Earnscliffe Strategy Group $130,061 for the survey.

The research follows a failed 2012 campaign to have all Canadians use direct deposit for payment of tax refunds and benefit cheques. The attempt by the Receiver General of Canada, the federal office responsible for processing payments, was intended to save costs. Paper cheques cost 82¢ apiece to process compared to 13¢ for electronic transfers, by official estimate.

An estimated 13% of taxpayers refused to surrender bank account information to the Receiver General. “Cheque recipients have become harder to engage,” said a 2020 Department of Public Works survey.

“A few have a general distrust of the Government of Canada’s ability to protect data,” wrote researchers. A total 23 percent of Atlantic residents said they wouldn’t rely on the government to protect their privacy, followed by 22% in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, 21% in Ontario, 19% in Alberta, 18% in BC and 12% in Québec.

WATCH: Alberta Oil drives Guilbeault to meeting with Nixon

Federal Environment Minister Stephen Guilbeault’s tour of Alberta has already kicked off with a whiff of hypocrisy.




Attended by a sizable entourage, Guilbeault exited his black gasoline-powered SUV and hustled into the McDougall Centre in Calgary for a meeting with Alberta Environment Minister Jason Nixon.  

Guilbeault has dedicated most of his career to telling Canadians they need to transition from petrochemically fueled transportation. During this meeting though, Guilbeault chose not to find an utilize an electric-powered SUV in order to demonstrate his environmental virtue. With the resources of the entire federal government behind him, one would have thought that Guilbeault could have arranged appropriate transportation for his cross-Canada tour.  

It’s almost as if electric vehicles are still not ready for mainstream use yet. 

At least Guilbeault contributed to the Western economy with his conspicuous consumption of local petrochemical products.
