EXCLUSIVE: Suspended Calgary cop breaks silence

Denison breaks his silence and has agreed to an exclusive interview with the Western Standard.




Const. Brian Denison, a 24-year veteran with the Calgary Police Service (CPS), was recently suspended with pay for his stance on the CPS’s COVID-19 vaccination policy. Following his suspension, Denison posted an emotional video while in uniform and seated in his police cruiser.

The video went viral and created some backlash for Denison, including from mainstream media outlets and the CPS who has now charged him with insubordination and discreditable conduct.

Denison breaks his silence and has agreed to an exclusive interview with the Western Standard. Tune in Friday, December 10 at 5 p.m. for the exclusive.

    “breaks silence”? All his troubles seem to stem from not being quiet. He doesn’t have to be vaccinated. He could just opt for frequent tests.

    what the health authorities STILL havent done is REMOVE THE BAN on doctors providing early treatment for Covid, and prohibiting the use of Ivermectin while doing that (banned) early treatment. The ICU’s in Alberta will be BACK TO NORMAL as soon as that has been done. The guy who could do that is Jason Kenney, but he has obviously decided NOT to do it. And he has somehow convinced a few from the constituency associations, and the party organization, to do along with that decision.

    If there is a way for us to provide support for people like this police officer, WS could provide a service by posting how we can do that. For example, if a public hearing is called against this officer, I think many of us would come out in support, and/or provide monetary or legal support.

    This totalitarian BS has to stop. Dr. David Martin has posted some specific names and positions of some of the globalists. So long as they remain in the shadows and dont feel any repercussions, this BS is apt to continue.

    Lets uncover who these people are. E.g., EXACTLY WHO did kenney and Steven Poloz (Bank of Canada) meet with in 2014 when they were at Bilderberger?? What did they talk about? Is there more to come from these Globalists? I read some time ago that Reuters (the news agency) was owned by the Rothchilds. I read a week or two ago that the outgoing chairman of Reuters is/was on the Board of Pfizer. What are the connections here? What does Klaus Schwab do in his spare time? How does he make his money? Its an odd coincidence that all these health authorities/organizations around the world have the same prohibitions against early treatment and against such useful drugs as ivermectin? Perhaps there is a story buried in here somewhere for a journalist to uncover?

    Mandates 22 months into this Wuhan Virus scare are just NONSENSE.

    People like the officer who have been interacting with citizens all through this process would be have likely come in contact with the Virus on numerous occasions and most likely have Natural Immunity which according to several Studies art over 20 Xs better than the now Failing VAX.

    Boosters are the new mantra today, and Pfizer is now working on shot No. 4.
    VAXED people are Spreaders and in many countries today are the majority of the Hospitalized.

    Dennison is one of the FEW Canooks who is paying attention . . . another is Dr. Nagase in BC . . . I suspect the worst is yet to come for those who took the VAX, in Britain today the Under 60s who are VAXED are dying at twice the rate of the Un-vaxed.

    Kudos and blessings to this man for his integrity; for speaking truth. The disgraceful censorship of truth is beyond shocking. That the masses cannot see what’s taking place before our very eyes is incomprehensible.
    Here’s a documentary that gives a summary of what’s taking place globally; it connects the dots.

    Thank you for standing up. Let’s all keep matters in perspective; covid has an infection fatality rate of 0.17% in Alberta, meaning that for every 10,000 people who actually contract covid, 17 will die, and the vast majority of those fatalities belong to a demographic that could have benefited from focused protection, but did not recieve it. Instead we have agreed to pervasive systems of government surveillance and control alongside ever increasing encroachment on personal freedom and property rights. It is encouraging to see people standing up.

Ottawa press gallery discusses letting Chinese propaganda agency in

Xinhua has been accused of misusing press privileges at the direction of Chinese diplomats.




Officials with the Parliamentary Press Gallery held a behind closed doors meeting on Tuesday to talk about letting reporters from Xinhau, the Chinese Community Party’s propaganda agency, into the club, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

“The gallery is not bound by any outside political considerations,” said gallery president Catherine Levesque of the National Post. 

“We are doing our due diligence to ensure Xinhua meets certain criteria and we will be making a decision shortly.”

Xinhua has been accused of misusing press privileges at the direction of Chinese diplomats.

“Membership in the Parliamentary Press Gallery allows access to the secure physical buildings of the parliamentary precinct and the opportunity to directly question individuals who drive and shape public policy,” gallery directors wrote in a 2020 code Journalistic Principles And Practices.

“As a result, accreditation is a privilege, not a right.”

Xinhua had been a member until 2020 when its press pass lapsed.

The Department of National Defence in 2012 blacklisted the agency from attending its press briefings, and a Xinhua correspondent in 2012 disclosed he was asked to maintain surveillance on Chinese dissidents in Canada.

The gallery would not discuss the Xinhua application but the gallery code states members must “respect the rights of people involved in the news.”

The Commons by a unanimous 266-0 vote last February 22 condemned China for human rights atrocities including the genocide of its Uyghur Muslim community. MPs also voted to petition the International Olympic Committee to relocate the 2022 Winter Games from Beijing.

“We need to move forward, not just as a country but as a world, on recognizing the human rights violations that are going on in China,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier told reporters.

“This is an issue that matters deeply to me, to all Canadians, and we will continue to work with our partners and allies on taking it seriously.”

Xinhua was originally granted Press Gallery membership in 1964 at the request of then-Foreign Minister Paul Martin Sr.

“It is a step in the direction of mutual understanding between Canada and mainland China,” Martin said at the time. Membership was approved in a press credentials swap that saw the Communist Party permit the Globe & Mail to open a Beijing bureau.

PHA head says cellphone snooping fears unwarranted

Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said managers at no time collected information that personally identified any of 33 million cellphone users.




The president of the Public Health Agency (PHA) says Canadians need not fret over the fact his organization snooped on 33 million cellphone users, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said managers at no time collected information that personally identified any of 33 million cellphone users.

“No personal information was asked or was received,” Kochhar told the Commons health committee.

“No individually identifiable data is contained in any part of the work.”

The Commons ethics committee last Friday voted 10-0 to examine the data collection program using cellphone tower tracking. The PHA said it sought the information to monitor compliance with lockdown orders.

“The actual reason why we collected this data is reliable, timely and relevant public health data comes out of it for other policy and decision making,” said Kochhar.

“This is population-level mobility data analysis. This is what we have collected.

“That would help us to understand the possible link between the movement of populations within Canada and the impact on COVID-19. We did that in terms of a very clear way of getting that open and transparent means of collection. We never, ever actually know when we use that information that it is individually identifiable. It is aggregated data.”

MPs on the ethics committee earlier noted cellphone users were never told the PHA was collecting the cellphone tracking data. Conservative MP John Brassard (Barrie-Innisfil, Ont.), noted the scope of the monitoring was only detailed when the Agency issued a December 17 notice to contractors to expand the program.

“It becomes increasingly concerning that government is seemingly using this pandemic as a means and a cause for massive overreach into the privacy rights of Canadians,” said Brassard.

“As parliamentarians, it’s incumbent upon us to make sure we protect those rights, that there is proper scrutiny and oversight.”

“The Public Health Agency was collecting data without the knowledge of Canadians, effectively doing it in secret. We need to know what security measures were in place to protect the privacy rights of Canadians.

“It is vital we do not allow the COVID response to create a permanent backslide of the rights and freedoms of Canadians including their fundamental right to privacy.”

Health Minister Duclos has no info on $150-million COVID contract to SNC-Lavalin

But testifying at the Commons health committee, Duclos had no answer when asked why the contract was issued.




SNC-Lavalin was given a $150-million sole-source contract to provide “urgently” needed field hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic — but Canada’s Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos doesn’t seem to know much about it, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The field hospitals were never used.

“This is obviously in support of the needs at the request of provinces and territories,” said Duclos.

But testifying at the Commons health committee, Duclos had no answer when asked why the contract was issued.

“What is the status of the mobile field hospitals SNC-Lavalin was contracted to produce?” asked Conservative MP Shelby Kramp-Neuman (Hastings-Lennox, Ont.).

“It was an example of the significant level of preparation that we did throughout the crisis,” replied Duclos.

“Why have the field hospitals from SNC-Lavalin not been deployed?” asked Kramp-Neuman.

Duclos replied he had no information on “the exact nature of the state of that equipment.”

“Did the Prime Minister’s Office approve of this?” asked MP Kramp-Neuman.

“That’s a public works question,” replied Duclos.

“We’re not getting a lot of clarity here,” said MP Kramp-Neuman, adding: “The buck stops with you. Sadly, I recognize you don’t have all the answers to everything, but it doesn’t seem like we’re getting a lot of answers to anything.”

An unidentified Department of Public Works manager finalized the SNC-Lavalin contract on April 9, 2020 without notice to other bidders.

“A public call for tenders was not issued due to the urgency of the need as a result of the pandemic,” said an internal e-mail.

However, as late as Sep. 9, 2020, the Québec contractor had still not fixed a delivery date, according to staff emails.

Paul Thompson, deputy minister of public works, Tuesday said he knew little of the contract details.

“I personally don’t have all the details at my fingertips,” said Thompson.

SNC-Lavalin was paid to supply field hospitals equipped with 200 hospital beds, ventilators, masks, medical gowns and ten days’ worth of medication, back-up generators, water and oxygen tanks, X-ray machines, shower bays and latrines.

“The self-sufficiency of the unit makes it extremely flexible for deployment where the need is greatest in Canada,” said a memo.

Internal records dated Oct. 13, 2020 disclosed no one wanted the field hospitals.

The department said spending included $2 million for design work and millions more on warehousing medical supplies for presumed future use.
