New COVID cases show increasing infections among the fully vaccinated

“What certainly is clear is this is a reversal of the numbers they were claiming when the vaccines were rolled out,” said the doctor.




New statistics from Alberta Health show an alarming trend with 82% of new COVID-19 cases now found among the fully vaccinated population, according to an Alberta physician and Alberta Health statistics.

The Western Standard spoke with a certified medical specialist who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal from Alberta Health Services.

“One of the concerns raised when the vaccination began was the possibility of antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) similar to Dengue fever,” said the specialist.

“Basically, the vaccinated become more susceptible to the disease they are supposed to be protected from.”

When assessing the high infection rate in the vaccinated population, the doctor said ADE could be the cause, but conceded it isn’t clear exactly what’s causing the trend.

Table 3. COVID-19 case outcomes in Alberta by vaccine status. Counts are provided for new, active cases, and those currently identified as being hospitalized.

“What certainly is clear, is this is a reversal of the numbers they were claiming when the vaccines were rolled out,” said the doctor.

Although the doctor acknowledged more of the population in Alberta has been vaccinated, he pointed to data on the Government of Alberta website showing hospitalization totals are nearly equal between the two groups.

With 77% of all eligible Albertans age five and up considered fully vaccinated, the unvaccinated still make up a disproportionately high number of those hospitalized over COVID-19 relative to their share of the population.

Despite the higher hospitalization rate among the unvaccinated, the infection rate increasingly does not mirror vaccination rates.

“It shows clearly fully vaccinated have no better protection than the unvaccinated,” said the specialist, while referencing findings from figure 10.  

“I am concerned that what we’ve seen with flu shots might be starting to happen,” said the doctor, who added, “It was called the ‘Canadian problem’ as it was reported by Canadian researchers first, and later confirmed by researchers in other countries.”   

“They were puzzled to find instead, seasonal flu vaccination almost doubled the risk of infection with pandemic flu.

“A simple way to understand is the body’s immune system in the vaccinated individual becomes preoccupied with making antibodies against the strain contained in the shots.

“However, what’s circulating now is quite different from what’s in the vaccines. That is, your precious immune resources are being wasted. 

“So, people who had the jabs end up becoming more susceptible when a different strain/variant starts circulating.”

The current strain circulating is now the Omicron variant and, according to the specialist, those who are vaccinated are “fighting the wrong strain.”

“The people who are jabbed are producing antibodies against the spike proteins in the alpha variant,” rather than the mutated Omicron variant said the specialist, concluding the vaccinated are becoming “more and more susceptible to COVID.”

According to the US-based Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 79% of cases in the US are now in the vaccinated.

“Among these cases of COVID-19 attributed to the Omicron variant, 34 (79%) occurred in persons who completed the primary series of an FDA-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine 14 days before symptom onset or receipt of a positive SARS-CoV-2 test result, including 14 (32%) who received an additional or booster dose…” said the CDC.

According to the most recent case counts in Ontario, 67% of those in hospitals due to COVID-19 are considered fully vaccinated, while 41% of ICU patients are also fully vaccinated.

According to COVID-19 Tracker Canada, 81% of people 5+ in Ontario are fully vaccinated.

    Gee, another idea just occurred to me. All these cases…..Omicron, Omicron, Omicron! Testing, Testing, Testing! We are still playing the game. Do we really trust the tests? Sure people are catching something, but maybe it is another flu, common cold, or one of the many other viruses in the world. One of AHS reports showed very few more deaths in 2020, than in previous years. Wouldn’t we have expected to see many more deaths in 2020 due to the deadly Covid 19.
    I do not trust anything the government or AHS is pushing.

    Finally AHS is actually reporting what all the censored doctors were saying back in March 2020. People need to be concerned about vaccine dependency. These injections are suspect. Injection mandates with no scientific data of long term affects? What are these injections going to do to the human innate immune system? The body immune system is wonderful, and these injections do not work like our childhood vaccines for small pox and measles. Consider there are cheap, safe medications and treatments that could be repurposed, why would health services not pull them out to be used. Early treatment!!! Not Suspect Vaccines. Yes, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, and many others within the Canadian Covid Care Alliance group all predicted and warned and are presently warming of problems. Shame on all governments!!!!!!! I am also perplexed at the number of physicians practicing medicine who have not done their homework and studied the scientific data and information. Is that asking too much these days? Oh yes, and all the pharmacists who are telling everyone these vaccines are safe and effective. Sure is not what has been deciphered from the Pfizer data reports.

    As this becomes more obvious day by day expect Trudeau and the globalist swine and Pfizer whores to desperately double down on injecting everyone with the mRNA poison in an effort to eliminate the control and comparison group

    Interesting study from Denmark on over 11,000 participants shows the vaxxed and the boosted are in big trouble. 2022 is already shaping up to become a bad year.

    I started following and taking daily screenshots of AHS numbers in September. If you had the ability to look up historical data on AHS’ site you’d see the trouble vaxxed are heading into. Vaxxed new covid cases climbed steady from 24% in September to 55% by the 22nd of December. Took 3 momths to go up 30%. That number has grown to 85%(another 30%) over 10 days in December to January.

    During these same 10 days vaxxed went from 25% of hospitalizations to 55% of hospitalizations.

    2022 is going to be a bad year for the vaxxed.

    Today Insurance Actuaries & Coroners are seeing Spikes in death rates from 18 to 64 in the VAXED community.

    6 months from now this could be the dominant issue . . . what do you think our Politicians & FakeStream Media talking heads are going to be saying then? And what about our Health Authorities the WHO frauds like Dr. Tam & Henry who are complicit in this culling of humanity?

    Will Fauci, Gates and their accomplices be arrested as the January 6 folks who walked into the Congress Building were?

    CN you hit the nail on the head (how many Covid deaths and injuries are jab deaths and injuries) Check out how the insurance companies are waking up to the fact there is a 40% death increase of working age people in the last year alone. Hmmmm I was born at night but not last night.

    Thank you Melanie for reporting this. You are a real journalist.

    We need more real journalists and more honest, ethical, and brave physician specialists to speak out on this.

    So how will Dr. Deena Mengele, oberführer ‘Justin’ Kenney and Reich Minister of Health Propaganda ‘Justin’ Crapping explain this to the sheeplw of Alberta, that buy all of this shiite?

    Very good explanation of the current state of affairs pertaining to Covid infections.

    What is of note as well is that the “unvaccinated” category on the Alberta Health website includes anyone that presents to hospital within 14 days of the first or second doses, so it would be interesting to get the data on how many of the “unvaccinated” in that category really should have been considered vaccine injured instead. ie. If Jason Kenny had announced a “pandemic of the recently vaccinated” this surely would have raised some eyebrows.

    This is exactly what mRNA technology invented Robert Malone was warning about ( and censored by the MSM of course)
    The “vaccines “ could cause ADE and end up being very detrimental
    The “cure” could be much worse than the disease
    I believe Pfizer and Trudeau know this and are desperate in trying to eliminate the healthy non vaxxed control comparison group
    That is why they are doubling down on “vaccines” that clearly do not work as promised
    This experimental gene therapy “vaccine” could turn out to be the biggest fraud and crime against humanity in history

WATCH: UCP MLA calls AHS ‘bloated’ and ‘underperforming’

“Even at a 90% inoculation rate in those 12 and older, we struggle with capacity,” said Guthrie criticizing AHS for the lack of available hospital beds throughout the pandemic and the many cancelled surgeries as a result.




Alberta Health Services is “failing” and needs “transformation,” says UCP MLA for Airdrie-Cochrane Peter Guthrie in a Facebook post.

Guthrie posted the video on Tuesday and said after speaking with many of his constituents, he had been “wrestling” with his thoughts on the state of Alberta’s healthcare system.

Guthrie highlighted the two-year period of the pandemic going from “zero data and no vaccine” to having data from around the world and a vaccine, “yet we seem to be in a circular loop.”

“Even at a 90% inoculation rate in those 12 and older, we struggle with capacity,” said Guthrie, criticizing AHS for the lack of available hospital beds throughout the pandemic and the many cancelled surgeries as a result.

“And AHS seems to recite the same recycled ideas including masking, passports and other various restrictions.”

In September, Guthrie said he and other MLAs questioned AHS and the Alberta government on the use of vaccine passports saying they were “divisive and possibly ineffective in stopping transmission,” and were showing waning efficacy.

“I don’t feel our health leaders adjusted to this evidence,” said Guthrie.

Guthrie also criticized AHS for not investing in researching treatments for COVID-19 symptoms and for working to “deter” the use of early treatments.

“AHS and the College of Physicians (and Surgeons of Alberta – CPSA) have penalized, suspended and even revoked licenses’ of those Alberta doctors trying to find a treatment, including anti-viral medications, that may help a patient avoid symptoms.”

Guthrie took aim at the “billions of added dollars” the government has put into healthcare for AHS to hire more doctors yet said wait times have not improved across the province. He also referenced a report by the Fraser Institute that pegged Canada as second behind Switzerland for the most expensive universal healthcare system in the world, but added Canada also sits among the bottom on performance.

“This reinforces the need for reform,” said Guthrie, adding he doesn’t blame frontline workers and suggests we should be looking to those healthcare workers for suggestions on how to improve what he calls a “failing” healthcare system.

Guthrie said pre-COVID19 — and immediately after he was elected — he and other MLAs felt upper management changes in AHS were necessary.

“We felt that AHS was a bloated, underperforming entity that requires transformation,” said Guthrie.

“With the uninspiring performance of AHS over the last two years, right or wrong, that sentiment still holds with me.”

Guthrie said he believes “high-calibre candidates” should be sought outside of AHS and said the healthcare system in Alberta should not be left to continue struggling and suggested other strategies should be explored by professional consultants from outside AHS.

“We must endeavour to generate confidence, not fear,” said Guthrie encouraging people to share their ideas and thoughts on how to improve Alberta’s healthcare system.

Omicron grounds every 1 in 5 WestJet flights in February

Customers affected by the new cutbacks will hear from WestJet within the next few days.




A total of 20% of WestJet flights will be cancelled in February — Omicron and past layoffs are to blame.

“As we continue to navigate the unpredictability of the Omicron variant on our staffing levels, along with the ongoing barriers to international travel, we are making every effort to proactively manage our schedule in order to minimize disruption to our guests’ travel plans,” said President & CEO Harry Taylor in a press release. 

“To our guests impacted by these additional consolidations, we sincerely apologize for the disruption and appreciate your continued understanding and patience.”

Customers affected by the new cutbacks will hear from WestJet within the next few days.

The aviation industry is the only transportation sector in Canada requiring full vaccination status to use and is the highest COVID-19 tested consumer activity in the country.

“Canada remains one of the only countries in the world requiring multiple molecular tests for fully-vaccinated travellers — these testing resources should be redeployed to our communities,” said Taylor, commenting on the demand to stop arrival testing.

The measures are in addition to the 15% reduction in flights implemented in January because of staff shortages.

These events follow the December deadline for WestJet employees to be vaccinated, where hundreds of employees were fired because of their vaccination status.

Misery index places Canada in bottom ranks

“Canadians are rightly concerned about the country’s high inflation and unemployment rates, and when compared to other developed countries, Canada is not doing well.”




Canada’s combination of high rates of inflation and unemployment have secured it the sixth most “miserable” advanced economy in the world.

Tuesday morning, the Fraser Institute released a study that ranked the International Monetary Fund’s top 35 economic countries.

With an inflation rate of 3.15% and unemployment rate of 7.72%, Canada’s 2021 Misery Index score is 10.88.

“Canadians are rightly concerned about the country’s high inflation and unemployment rates, and when compared to other developed countries, Canada is not doing well,” said Jason Clements, executive vice president of the Fraser Institute.

Fraser Institute

American economist Arthur Okun created the Misery Index to understand the level of economic strain felt on an everyday basis for regular citizens of a country.

Inflation and unemployment act as measures that drastically affect the costs of living that impacts economic well-being on an individual level.

Only five countries received worse scores than Canada, Spain in the last spot with a score of 17.61, followed by Greece (15.73), Italy (11.96) and Iceland (11.26)

Countries above Canada’s score include France (10.10), the United States (9.72), Australia (7.33), and the United Kingdom (7.17).

Japan (2.61) and Switzerland (3.57) received the top scores being the least miserable.

The Misery Index was prominent in policy discussions during the 1970s and 1980s, but fell out of the spotlight during the 1990s while inflation and unemployment was low.

“The fact we are again discussing the Misery Index and Canada’s high ranking on it is bad news for all Canadians, who will suffer as a result,” Clemens said.

“Governments across Canada, particularly the federal government, should prioritize those policies that will make Canadians less miserable by lowering inflation and unemployment.”
