Vaccine-Injured People, Along with Doctors and Lawyers, Speak Out Against Canada’s Covid Mandates
Canadians injured by COVID-19 vaccines were among those who reported their tragic stories to a three-day Citizens’ Hearing in June of this year. The hearing was organized by the Canadian Covid Care Alliance (CCCA), a group that includes over 600 independent Canadian doctors, scientists and health care practitioners who are not connected with government or pharmaceutical companies.
The hearing took place in Toronto from June 22 to 24 and also heard from doctors, lawyers and scientific experts who questioned the decisions to enforce vaccines, masks and lock downs as the only approach to battling COVID-19 across Canada.
Veteran reporter Trish Wood presided over the hearing. Veteran Canadian politician Preston Manning was among the panelists who heard testimony from Canadians injured by vaccines that they were often coerced to receive, those who lost their livelihood for not complying, and many others.
In total there were about 60 speakers, all of whom affirmed that what they said was “true to their knowledge to the best of their ability to know that.”
Impact of Vaccine Mandates and Mask-Wearing
On Day 1, many spoke of how they or others were impacted by the vaccine mandates. They included university students, a college instructor, a paramedic, a doctor, a pilot, a postman, a member of the armed forces, and a military chaplain.
The first day of the hearing also brought those who said they were impacted by masks. This included the parents of a teenage girl who started passing out 60 times a day. It was finally discovered that she had developed an unhealthy breathing pattern from wearing a mask during physical activity.
As well, some speakers spoke about the impact of lockdowns – for instance, not being able to visit loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes and the consequences for their loved ones.
Impact of Vaccine Injuries
Day 2 focused on those who took the vaccine and experienced adverse events. There were ten such speakers who either spoke for themselves or on behalf of a loved one. Many of these stories were heart wrenching.
Also, Max Daigle talked about his organization, the Canadian Adverse Event Reporting System (CAERS), which listens to the vaccine-injured and records their adverse events. CAERS (link in Resources list below) is an “independent reporting system created by Canadians, for Canadians.” As well, a couple of parents who disagreed with their ex-spouses on vaccination of their children spoke.
Effects on Small Businesses and More
Day 3 of the hearing heard from small business owners on their struggles, but also their creativity. As well, four politicians talked about what they learned from their constituents and how they tried to help.
Doctors, scientists and other experts spoke on all days and are listed here with a short description of their topic:
- Irvin Studin, Worldwide Commission to Educate All Kids (post pandemic) – impact of closing of schools
- Chris Schaefer, respirator expert – the low oxygen levels that can occur behind a mask.
- Dr. Keren Epstein-Gilboa, developmental psychology expert – the harms to children of not seeing faces, etc.
- Two professors, Dr. Steven Pelech (UBC) and Dr. Bonnie Mallard (University of Guelph) – natural immunity
- Dr. Chris Milburn, former director of emergency medicine – speaking out against public health policy
- Dr. Patrick Phillips – how vaccine adverse events that he reported were rejected
- Dr. Francis Christian, surgeon/professor – on writing a letter of concern about vaccinating children
- Dr. Julie Ponesse, ethics professor – on the state of our democracy
- Dr. Eric Payne, child neurologist – the poor effectiveness of the vaccines and myriad adverse events
- Deanna McLeod, clinical data evaluation expert – kids and the vaccines; and separately, conflicts of interest
- Dr. Maria Gutschi, pharmacist – how testing was reduced by calling them “vaccines,” poor manufacturing quality
- Shawn Buckley, lawyer – a wording change in the test that a COVID-19 vaccine must pass in order to be approved
- Dr. Richard Schabas, retired public health physician – established public health guidelines were not followed
- Brook Jackson, former regional director of a Pfizer clinical trial site and whistleblower
Other speakers included an indigenous chief and a nurse/indigenous elder who shared testimony about what they are seeing on their reserves. As well, many lawyers spoke about their clients, cases, or provided legal analysis.
The hearing provided much emotional and scientific material to be absorbed and processed by our collective hearts and minds. Although there was some discussion of solutions, the main focus of the hearing was to listen and document. The immediate and critical next step is for more people to learn of the hearing, so all were encouraged to share the hearing with their family, friends, and fellow Canadians and residents. Recordings and written summaries are available on the CCCA website (link in Resources list below). Anyone who would like to add their story may get in touch with CCCA.
In addition to the hearing, another recent initiative of CCCA is its “Stop the Shots” video. This video summarizes the scientific evidence in everyday language to help parents make an informed choice on whether or not to give their child the COVID-19 vaccine. See CCCA website. This is timely, as Health Canada recently (July 14) authorized use of the Moderna vaccine for children 6 months to 5 years of age.
About the Canadian Covid Care Alliance: CCCA is an alliance of independent Canadian doctors, scientists and health care practitioners committed to providing top-quality and balanced evidence-based information to the Canadian public about COVID-19 so that hospitalizations can be reduced, lives saved, and our country safely restored as quickly as possible.
