Someone had to go on Fox News and tell the truth about the injury and death rates about the COVID vaccines. It’s never been done before. They’ve all attempts or simply not allowed anyone on in the first place.
So on August 10, at 5:35pm, I took my shot. And I got it on air. For the first time in history.
I explained just how dangerous the vaccines are including the hundreds of thousands who have died and the millions who have been injured.

And, just like that, it was over.
This is HUGE news folks. In bureaucrat speak, this is a near-complete cave-in to the actual facts:
No symptoms? No problem.
Vaccinated or unvaccinated? Same guidance.
Exposed? No need to even quarantine.
Students exposed? They can stay in class, what the hell, right?
If you managed to maintain your integrity through this awful period of time, congratulations! You are one of the rock stars of this story. You are a solid individual who has courage and stood firm and tall when it mattered most.

What is happening currently in New Normal Germany is the fascist fanatics in control of the government are rewriting the “Infection Protection Act,” again — as they have been doing repeatedly for the last two years — in order to allow themselves to continue to violate the German constitution (the “Grundgesetz“) and rule the nation by arbitrary decree under the guise of “protecting the public health.”
This repeatedly revised “Infection Protection Act” — which has granted the government of New Normal Germany the authority to order lockdowns, curfews, the outlawing of protests against the New Normal, the mandatory wearing of medical-looking masks, the segregation and persecution of “the Unvaccinated,” etc.
Covid cases in Singapore and New Zealand OVERTAKE Australia despite SUPER strict mandates: 'They don't matter'
Kevin Airs For Daily Mail AustraliaDaily Mail, July 19, 2022
New data shows Covid cases in Singapore and New Zealand have overtaken Australia in the latest Omicron wave despite ultra-strict mask mandates.
Masks are worn everywhere in the densely-populated Asian city while New Zealanders are forced to wear them in all indoor public places, such as shopping centres and libraries.
But both now have higher case numbers per million than Australia, where compulsory mask rules have been abandoned in most indoor settings.

This U.K. and New South Wales Australia data is alarming as to the risks faced by the COVID jab boosted population for hospitalization and death (post shot).
The fraud started when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes for Health (NIH), and World Health Organization (WHO), along with public health leaders like Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins and Rochelle Walensky, came up with the master deceit, whereby they redefined what it meant to be “vaccinated.”

The odds seemed impossibly long. Doctors generally take good care of themselves.
But the emails that three physicians at Trillium Health Partners had died in a matter of days were real, not a hoax.
And they did not even include two more deaths of Toronto-area physicians since July 15. Those were both apparently cardiac-related deaths, including one of a 27-year-old woman - an extraordinarily rare event.
The count of dead physicians in the Toronto area in last two weeks now stands at five, four of whom were 50 or younger. One died of lung cancer, two of apparent cardiac collapse, and in two cases the cause of death has not been disclosed.

Starting next week, fully-vaccinated travellers entering Canada through Toronto Pearson International Airport will once again be subjected to mandatory random COVID-19 testing.
The policy, which was temporary suspended last month amid long lines and delays at airports, will resume on July 19 for travellers arriving by air at Canada's four major Canadian airports in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto

Vaccinated people are now more likely to be hospitalized or die from Covid, even after adjusting for fact they're older than the unvaccinated, according to official government estimates from the Canadian province of Manitoba.
In May, the most recent month for which figures are available, only 9 percent of Covid deaths and 14 percent of hospital admissions in Manitoba occurred among unvaccinated people, even though they are 17 percent of the population.

Some 40,000 National Guard and 22,000 Reserve soldiers who refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19 are no longer allowed to participate in their military duties, also effectively cutting them off from some of their military benefits, Army officials announced Friday.
"Soldiers who refuse the vaccination order without an approved or pending exemption request are subject to adverse administrative actions, including flags, bars to service, and official reprimands," an Army spokesperson said in a statement.

A tale of three countries:
In Austria, they’ve figured out the vaccines are dangerous, so the Health Minister is now blaming the doctors.
In New Zealand, the data clearly shows the vaccinated have higher all-cause mortality, so their solution is more vaccines and they bury the papers showing the vaccines are the problem.
In Australia, the mandates are gone and a few people are coming to realize they goofed big time.

COVID booster shots appear to be less than 20% effective against infection with the omicron variant of the virus just a few months after the booster is given, a new study found this week.
The Italian study, which is a pre-print review and re-analysis of prior studies and has not been peer-reviewed, suggests boosters are effective in the short term to restore protection against the virus. But over just a few months, that wanes quickly.
Twice-vaxxed Canadian comedian who refused Pfizer booster “dies suddenly” age 32… Mark Steyn can’t believe it…

Monkeypox cannot be considered a pandemic due to the small number of cases, this virus is not highly contagious, infectious disease doctor Yevgeny Timakov told TASS. Earlier, the World Health Network called for monkeypox to be declared a pandemic.
"This disease in no way be considered a pandemic. Only a few get sick, it is not highly contagious. The virus may have changed in some way, but it does not pose a danger on a global scale," the expert explained.

Virtually every single adult in Portugal has taken at least two doses of “miracle cure” COVID vaccine, with the vast majority “boosted” as well. Yet this month, the most vaxxed country in Europe has consistently reported its worst outcomes.
Once thought to be the best positioned nation in Europe to deal with future bouts with the coronavirus, a nuclear bomb of reality has hit Lisbon.
Out of all the countries in Europe, “Portugal has experienced the most dramatic wave,” The Guardian reports. “With infections per million remaining at a seven-day average of 2,043 on Monday – the second highest new case rate in the world.”

MOSCOW, July 1. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) is lifting restrictions imposed throughout the country due to the COVID pandemic, the department's press service told reporters on Friday.
Russia records 3,155 daily COVID-19 cases, 53 deaths — crisis center
"Due to the continuing decline in the epidemic’s intensity, Rospotrebnadzor has suspended the previously imposed restrictions, including the mask mandates, bans on nighttime operations of public catering and a number of other measures. If the situation with COVID-19 worsens, these restrictive measures may come back into effect," the service stated.

Five months after breaking the story of the CEO of One America insurance company saying deaths among working people ages 18-64 were up 40% in the third quarter of 2021, I can report that a much larger life insurance company, Lincoln National, reported a 163% increase in death benefits paid out under its group life insurance policies in 2021.
This is according to the annual statements filed with state insurance departments — statements that were provided exclusively to Crossroads Report in response to public records requests.
The reports show a more extreme situation than the 40% increase in deaths in the third quarter of 2021 that was cited in late December by One America CEO Scott Davison — an increase that he said was industry-wide and that he described at the time as “unheard of” and “huge, huge numbers” and the highest death rates that have ever been seen in the history of the life insurance business.

COVID-19 vaccines should not have been recommended for all children aged 5 and up, a top Danish health official has said.
Søren Brostrøm, the director general of the Danish Health Authority, told TV 2 that it was a mistake to broadly vaccinate children based on the knowledge that has accumulated since late 2021.
Children aged 5 to 15 were advised to get a vaccine then, as the Omicron variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus became dominant around the world.
Mimi Nguyen Ly, The Epoch Times, June 16, 2022
Pfizer has announced it will stop enrollment in a clinical trial for Paxlovid—its COVID-19 antiviral pill—for standard-risk COVID-19 patients after the latest results suggested the drug did not reduce symptoms or hospitalizations and deaths to a statistically significant degree.
Paxlovid, which consists of two different antiviral drugs—nirmatrelvir and ritonavir—is currently approved or authorized for conditional or emergency use in more than 65 countries, including the United States, to treat COVID-19 patients at high risk of severe illness, including hospitalization or death.
Pfizer said on June 14 that it will “cease enrollment into the EPIC-SR trial due to low rate of hospitalization or death in the standard-risk population.”

The number of coronavirus patients in serious condition in Israel reached 140 on Friday, marking a near 70% rise since last week, with health experts warning that the current situation was “unstable.”
While Israel has seen rising infection numbers for a few weeks, a rise in seriously ill patients marks a real concern as the country deals with the spread of the new variant BA.5, with experts warning that hospitals may need to reopen COVID wards. The number was up from 85 seriously ill patients on Friday last week.

The Chinese regime is using COVID-19 control measures to stop depositors whose savings were frozen by rural banks from protesting.
Several depositors told The Epoch Times on June 14 that the health code on their COVID-19 app turned red as soon as they scanned venue barcodes at Zhengzhou, the provincial capital city of central China’s Henan Province. A red health code—indicating a potential COVID-19 patient—means that the carrier is barred access to all public places from public toilets to shops to train stations and faces mandatory quarantine in centralized isolation centers.

It appears that the United States just became the only country in the world to “vaccinate” babies and toddlers with COVID injections.
Despite what you are reading in the press, the U.S. seems to be, as of Friday, the only country in the world to partake in experimental COVID therapeutics for infants.
On Friday, the FDA authorized mRNA COVID shots (both Pfizer and Moderna) under emergency use authorization for children under 5 years old, all the way down to 6 months of age. As you’ll see in a moment, this is unprecedented anywhere in the world.
Military Tech News, 06/14/2022 / By Ethan Huff
The United States military is having trouble keeping its aircraft in the skies these days, at least in Southern California where some three different planes and helicopters crashed in the desert in the span of just one week.
The cause of each of these incidents is still under investigation, we are told. But there is speculation among some that perhaps the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines that were forced on all military servicemen might have played a role.
The shots are known to cause blood clots, which have been linked to other mysterious accidents that have been occurring ever since the injections were first introduced under Operation Warp Speed.
In addition to causing Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, or SADS, Fauci Flu shots degrade the immune and neurological systems, which can cause changes in cognitive function and ability.
LifeSite, Tue June 7, 2022
(Children's Health Defense) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new data June 3, showing a total of 1,287,595 reports of adverse events following COVID-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 27, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). That's an increase of 9,615 adverse events over the previous week.
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.
The data included a total of 28,532 reports of deaths an increase of 220 over the previous week and 235,041 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period up 2,347 compared with the previous week.

Britain could be facing a new wave of Covid infections driven by Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5, with three counties in particular seeing a massive surge.
Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) up to June 2 indicates England and Northern Ireland are starting to see a rise in cases.
In data collected by the New York Times from Data for the UK Department for Health and Social Care, Public Health England and the Chief Medical Officer Directorate, it shows the infection rate is 31 per 100,000.
Other areas to see a surge include North East Lincolnshire with 132% and Middlesbrough with 179%.
A new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, cited in The Australian and in a New York Times op-ed today, reveals over 170,000 non-Covid excess deaths among young Americans in 2020 and 2021, most likely attributable to measures implemented to combat the coronavirus—i.e., deaths by lockdown.
The Economist puts the number even higher, at 199,000. This rate of non-Covid excess deaths among young people holds constant across European Union countries that employed strict lockdown measures, but disappears for Sweden, which did not employ such measures.

People aged under 40 are being urged to have their hearts checked because they may potentially be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.
The syndrome, known as SADS, has been fatal for all kinds of people regardless of whether they maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. SADS is an 'umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people', said The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, most commonly occurring in people under 40 years of age.
Suspension of the mandatory vaccination requirement for domestic travellers and federally regulated transportation workers
- As of June 20, 2022, at 00:01 EDT, vaccination will no longer be a requirement to board a plane or train in Canada.
- This change does not affect border measures that require all travellers entering Canada to continue following entry requirements, including vaccination.
- Other public health measures, such as wearing a mask, continue to apply and will be enforced throughout a traveller’s journey on a plane or train.

The Lancet, a world-renown medical journal, is out with a new study debunking a highly-cited CDC study that was used to support mask mandates in schools.
Specifically, the study not only replicates the CDC study, which found a “negative association” between masks and pediatric cases of Covid-19, it also extends the study to include more districts over a longer period of time. In the end, the new study had nearly “six times as much data as the original study.”
Ian Miller, Unmasked, May 17, 2022
In summary, Sweden, the country that eschewed strict lockdowns, had some of the lowest mask usage anywhere on earth, kept schools open and society functioning as much as possible, and had one of the lowest rates of overall mortality of any country in their region.
While a single graph or chart may not necessarily disprove pro-mandate arguments, this one comes remarkably close.
If lockdowns, masks and other restrictions were as important as experts and politicians preach that they are, these results should not be possible.

In my opinion, based on currently available information, Monkeypox is a virus and disease which is endemic in Africa, emerges sporadically after transmission into humans from animal hosts, and is typically spread by close human contact. It is readily controlled by classical public health measures. It does not have a high mortality rate. Unless there has been some genetic alteration, either through evolution or intentional genetic manipulation, it is not a significant biothreat, and has never been considered a high threat pathogen in the past.

Passengers flying to or from Israel will no longer be mandated by the Israeli government to wear face masks, the Israeli Health Ministry announced Tuesday.
Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, Health Ministry director-general Nachman Ash, public health chief Sharon Alroy-Preis, and COVID czar Salman Zarka agreed Tuesday not to extend Israel’s mask mandate on passenger planes during international flights, effectively ending the requirement.
The mandate is set to expire next Monday, ending the mask requirement in all closed locations in Israel, with the exception of medical centers and nursing homes.

China reported the first case of a COVID-19 infection caused by the "more contagious" Omicron BA.4 variant, which was imported, according to an epidemiological survey by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
On May 4, a case of Omicron BA.4 infection was confirmed in China, the first reported in the country. The patient arrived in Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province from the Netherlands on April 29 and was admitted to an isolation hotel. The next day, she tested positive for novel coronavirus.

Using data from 35 countries and 602 million people, peer-reviewed study confirms previous research and cautions use of face masks "may have harmful unintended consequences."
A new peer-reviewed study entitled: "Correlation Between Mask Compliance and COVID-19 Outcomes in Europe" has demonstrated that use of face masks, even widespread, did not correlate with better outcomes during the COVID epidemic, based on data from 35 European countries with populations of over one million people each, encompassing a total of 602 million people.

Unvaccinated people are much more likely to develop broad antibody immunity after Covid infections than people who have received mRNA shots, a new study shows.
The gap remains large whether people had mild, moderate, or severe Covid infections, the study showed - undercutting a crucial argument that vaccine advocates have made to defend the shots.
The research draws on data from Moderna’s 30,000-person clinical trial for its mRNA shots. It may help explain why so many Americans now suffer multiple Covid infections, sometimes within months.
Face Masks Lead to Breathing Dangerous Levels of Carbon Dioxide Even When Sitting Still, Study Finds
Will Jones, Daily Sceptic, 13 May 2022
Wearing a face mask results in exposure to dangerous concentrations of carbon dioxide in inhaled air, even when the mask is worn for just five minutes when sitting still, a study has found.
With surgical masks, the CO2 concentration of inhaled air exceeded the danger zone of 5,000 ppm in 40% of cases. With FFP2 respirators it exceeded it in 99% of cases. The CO2 concentrations were higher for children and for those who breathed more frequently.
Acting NIH Director Admits Appearance of Conflict of Interest in Secret Royalty Payments to Fauci, Scientists
Epoch News, Mark Tapscott, May 11, 2022
Undisclosed royalty payments estimated at $350 million from pharmaceutical and other firms to Dr. Anthony Fauci and hundreds of National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists do present “an appearance of a conflict of interest,” according to the agency’s acting director.
Dr. Lawrence Tabak, who took over as NIH director following the December 2021 resignation of the agency’s long-time leader, Dr. Francis Collins, told a House Appropriations Committee subcommittee that federal law allows the royalty payments, but he conceded that they don’t look ethical.
Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine Protection Against Omicron Fades Just Weeks After Second And Third Doses, Study Finds
Robert Hart, Forbes, May 13, 2022
Immunity against the omicron coronavirus variant fades rapidly after a second and third dose of Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine, according to peer reviewed research published in JAMA Network Open on Friday, a finding that could support rolling out additional booster shots to vulnerable people as the variant drives an uptick in new cases across the country.
Levels of omicron-specific “neutralizing” antibodies—which can target the virus and stop it from replicating—decline rapidly after a second and third dose of Pfizer’s shot, according to the Danish study of 128 people who had received two or three doses.

Rates of confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection and severe Covid-19 were lower after a fourth dose of BNT162b2 vaccine than after only three doses. Protection against confirmed infection appeared short-lived...For confirmed infection, a fourth dose appeared to provide only short-term protection and a modest absolute benefit. Several reports have indicated that the protection against hospital admission conferred by a third dose given more than 3 months earlier is substantially lower against the omicron variant than the protection of a fresh third dose against hospital admission for illness caused by the B.1.617.2 (delta) variant.
California Globe, Katy Grimes, May 13, 2022
SB 866 by Senators Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) to allow children ages 12 to 17 to take the COVID-19 vaccine without parental consent, just passed the California State Senate Thursday.
California legislators formed a “vaccine working group” earlier this year, claiming they wanted “to facilitate coordinated action and bring thoughtful, comprehensive approach to save lives.”
As Karen England with the Capitol Resource Institute explained to the Globe in March, “...This bill not only strips parents of their right to make important decisions regarding their child’s health, but it also places minors in a potentially dangerous situation. If a minor were to have an immediate adverse reaction to a vaccine, the parent would not know. Parents MUST be allowed to be the decision makers when it comes to the health of their children.”

It is hard to destroy your own cause and feel righteous while doing so, yet the American left has done it.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it does not have documents backing its claim that COVID-19 vaccines do not cause variants of the virus that causes COVID-19.
The CDC’s website calls it a myth that the vaccines cause variants.
The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a nonprofit, asked the CDC ...for documentation supporting the claim.
In one request, the group asked for “All documents sufficient to support that COVID-19 vaccines do not create or cause variants of the virus that causes COVID-19.”
...The CDC has now responded to both requests, saying a search “found no records responsive” to them.

(Mercola) – According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, more than 1 million excess deaths — that is, deaths in excess of the historical average — have been recorded since the COVID-19 pandemic began two years ago, and this cannot be explained by COVID-19.
Deaths from heart disease, high blood pressure, dementia and many other illnesses rose during that time. “We’ve never seen anything like it,” Robert Anderson, CDC’s head of mortality statistics, told The Washington Post in mid-February 2022.

Masking was the single most common non-pharmaceutical intervention in the course of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Most countries have implemented recommendations or mandates regarding the use of masks in public spaces. The aim of this short study was to analyse the correlation between mask usage against morbidity and mortality rates in the 2020-2021 winter in Europe. Data from 35 European countries on morbidity, mortality, and mask usage during a six-month period were analysed and crossed. Mask usage was more homogeneous in Eastern Europe than in Western European countries. Spearman's correlation coefficients between mask usage and COVID-19 outcomes were either null or positive, depending on the subgroup of countries and type of outcome (cases or deaths). Positive correlations were stronger in Western than in Eastern European countries. These findings indicate that countries with high levels of mask compliance did not perform better than those with low mask usage.

Nearly 400 million people are estimated to be under some form of lockdown in China as officials try to stop a fast-moving omicron outbreak that is beginning to weigh on the world’s second-largest economy.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been sent to isolation facilities in China, and millions more have been told to stay in their homes. Officials in dozens of cities have shut down normal daily life across the country in a race to track and trace the coronavirus and stamp out China’s worst outbreak since the start of the pandemic.

Heart inflammation requiring hospital care was more common among people who received COVID-19 vaccines than those who did not, according to a new study of tens of millions of Europeans.
Rates of myocarditis or pericarditis, two types of heart inflammation, are above the levels in an unvaccinated cohort, pegged at 38 per 100,000 after receipt of a second dose of a vaccine built on messenger RNA (mRNA) technology in males aged 16 to 24—the group studies have shown are most at risk of the post-vaccination condition—researchers with health agencies in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway found.

For some, it’s just a sniffle. But for others, COVID-19 can hit hard. Either way, some people who get COVID-19 will suffer from long-term effects. This is known as “long COVID,” and its sufferers are often referred to as “long haulers.” Chances are you already know about long COVID and you may even have been affected by it or have friends or family who are. What is less well known, however, is that neurological issues are common in long COVID.

As some people have now been vaccinated for more than half a year, evidence is pouring in about Covid vaccine efficacy. When evaluating vaccine efficacy, it is important to distinguish between efficacy against infection, symptomatic disease, and transmission versus efficacy against hospitalization and death. For infection and symptomatic disease, the COVID-19 vaccines are not as efficacious as hoped, with immunity gradually waning after a few months. For hospitalization and death, immunity is stronger, lasting for at least six months.

Shanghai, China's financial center, reported a record surge in daily COVID infections on Monday despite the CCP's best efforts to contain the ongoing COVID outbreak, which is the worst outbreak in China since the virus first emerged in Wuhan more than two years ago.
The country’s determined efforts to contain growing outbreaks despite the "mild symptoms" reported led to lockdowns that affected more than 50 million people at their peak; but the deleterious impact on China's economy has led the CCP to ease some restrictions, particularly in the southern tech hub of Shenzhen.

White House COVID-19 adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said he expects to be investigated by Republicans if they take back control of the House during the 2022 midterm elections.
“It’s Benghazi hearings all over again,” Fauci told The Washington Post on March 15 in reference to numerous GOP lawmakers saying they will look into alleged gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, located near where the first COVID-19 cases were officially reported in late 2019.
Fauci, an unelected federal official who has headed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984, claimed that potential hearings “will distract me from doing my job, the way it’s doing right now.” Should there be hearings and an investigation, Fauci said, “there will be nothing there.”
The source, who is not authorized to speak publicly about the upcoming policy change, said an official announcement is expected later this week.
The change is welcome news, just in time for the tourist season, said Perrin Beatty, president of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and co-chair of the Canadian Travel and Tourism Roundtable.
Austria suspends law forcing all adults to have Covid jabs and admits the 'encroachment of fundamental rights' is not justified
AFP, 9 March 2022
Austria is suspending mandatory Covid-19 vaccines for all adults saying the pandemic no longer poses the same danger, just weeks after the law took effect.
The Alpine nation of nine million people was one of the few countries in the world to make jabs against the coronavirus compulsory for all adults.

(LifeSiteNews) – Antibodies to the novel coronavirus have been discovered in blood samples dating from September 2019 in Europe, prior to the supposed outbreak in Wuhan, China, marking an “enormous” change in how the government response to the virus should be viewed, a leading medical professor said. ....Commenting on the discovery, Stanford medical professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya noted that stored blood samples from September and November 2019 ... disqualifying initial media reporting that a Wuhan wet market had been the source of the global outbreak of the virus.
“The implications are enormous,” Bhattacharya said, highlighting that since the virus was in the population “long before the official start date, it was too late to stop the disease from spreading across the earth.”

PARIS (AP) — France lifted most COVID-19 restrictions on Monday, abolishing the need to wear face masks in most settings and allowing people who aren’t vaccinated back into restaurants, sports arenas and other venues.
The move had been announced earlier this month by the French government based on assessments of the improving situation in hospitals and following weeks of a steady decline in infections. It comes less than a month before the first round of the presidential election scheduled on April 10.

The Biden administration wants to expand a federal COVID-19 tracking system created during the pandemic to provide a more detailed view of how respiratory and other infectious diseases are affecting patients and hospital resources, according to a draft of proposed rules reviewed by Reuters.
The plan would build upon a hospital data collection system designed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under the Trump administration. Management of the program was transferred last month to HHS's lead public health agency, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said on Sunday that a fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be necessary to continue to help keep hospitalizations manageable and sicknesses more mild.
"Right now, the way that we have seen, it is necessary, a fourth booster right now. The protection that you are getting from the third, it is good enough, actually quite good for hospitalizations and deaths," Bourla said while appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation."

Ontario has quietly revealed that the number of persons in the province whose death was caused by COVID-19 is much lower than the story the previous statistics told.
What the data reveals is that, depending on the wave, the number of reported deaths where COVID-19 was actually the underlying cause of death ranged from about 75% to just under 60% of the previously disclosed numbers.

Latest flu vaccine was INEFFECTIVE during the 2021-2022 season and was deemed a 'poor match' to the strain, CDC report finds
Mansur Shaheen, Dailymail.Com, March 10, 2022
Experts at the University of Pennsylvania warned late last year that this year's Covid vaccine may be ineffective.
The flu shot used during the 2021 to 2022 virus season was a poor match and did little to prevent circulation, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report finds.
Researchers found that the vaccine only reduced the number of mild influenza by 16 percent, which they do not consider statistically significant.

A court loss for the FDA in a Texas district court means the agency on Tuesday began to release a massive trove of hundreds of thousands of documents related to its review of Pfizer’s safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine.
But what exactly will be uncovered in each batch of released documents is anyone’s guess.
The nonprofit that won the court case, known as the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency, promptly released the Pfizer documents on its website this week but did not offer any sort of organization or explanation of what they show.

A long line of huge semi-articulated trucks, recreational vehicles and cars was circling Washington DC, on Sunday, in preparation for what their protesting drivers have pledged will be a week of traffic disruption around the US capital aligned around a loose collection of demands, including the end to all coronavirus pandemic-related restrictions.
From its temporary base at a speedway vehicle racing site in Hagerstown, 80 miles north-west in Maryland, organizers of what they term the “People’s Convoy” of about 1,000 vehicles have said they plan to welcome the new work week by driving slowly around Washington on the already notoriously congested Beltway, or ring road, at the minimum legal speed in an attempt to get their message across to national politicians.

New York City has become the latest and largest city in the U.S. to announce it's dropping most of its COVID-19 restrictions as the Omicron surge continues to wind down. Starting Monday, businesses will no longer be required to ask for vaccination cards, and masks will no longer be mandated in public schools for children ages 5 and older.
"We have to get our economy back on track," Mayor Eric Adams said on Friday.
The city, which was once considered the epicenter of the pandemic, now has a positivity rate of only 1.6% over a 7-day average.

A bill by Senate Republicans to terminate the national emergency declaration for the Covid-19 pandemic passed 48 to 47 Thursday on a party-line vote.
While the legislation has a slim chance of passing the Democrat-controlled House and President Joe Biden has already threatened to veto the bill, the vote is yet another rebuke of the administration’s pandemic policies at a time it is seeking billions from Congress to keep them going for several more months.

More than a thousand large trucks, recreational vehicles and cars are gathering on the outskirts of Washington as part of a protest against Covid-19 restrictions that threatens to roll on the US capital in the coming days.
The so-called “People’s Convoy”, which originated in California and has drawn participants from around the country, is calling for an end to all pandemic-related restrictions. It was inspired by demonstrations last month that paralyzed Ottawa, Canada’s capital city.

The Swedish study suggests the vaccine is capable of becoming DNA, which is what the CDC claimed would not happen.
A study by Swedish scientists finds that when the vaccine's mRNA enters human liver cells it triggers a number of reactions that yield a reverse transcription that turns the mRNA into spike DNA, according to the Epoch Times.
The scientists, in their study published in the journal Current Issues of Molecular Biology, state that they have found "evidence that COVID-19 mRNA vaccine BNT162b2 is able to enter the human liver cell line Huh7 in vitro."
Ontario Judge Sides With Mother Opposing Covid Jabs for Her Kids, Says Her Concerns ‘entirely understandable’
The Highwire, March 2, 2022
Below is an excerpt from the judgement recently handed down by Ontario Judge Justice A. Pazaratz in a court case where the father wanted his two children, ages 12 and 10, to receive COVID vaccinations. The mother was opposed.
 When did it become illegal to ask questions? Especially in the courtroom?
 And when did it become unfashionable for judges to receive answers? Especially when children’s lives are at stake?
 How did we lower our guard and let the words “unacceptable beliefs” get paired together? In a democracy? On the Scales of Justice?

England ended all remaining covid restrictions Monday amid falling cases, and Australia reopened its borders to overseas travelers, as countries around the world seek a way to “live with the virus.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s message of a return to normalcy was partially blunted since Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for the coronavirus over the weekend and was experiencing “mild cold like symptoms.” Lawmakers from the opposition Labour Party and some public health experts have also criticized Johnson’s move as premature — and even reckless — as the country reported more than 1,000 deaths in the past week.

The New Zealand High Court has upheld a challenge to a vaccine mandate for Police and Defence Force staff, stating that it was not a “demonstrably justified” breach of the Bill of Rights. Justice Francis Cooke was asked by a group of Police and Defence Force personnel to judicially review the vaccine mandate enacted under the COVID-19 Public Health Response Act in December.
The mandate required all Defence Force personnel and all Police constables, recruits, and authorized officers to receive two doses of the vaccine by March 1.
But on Jan. 6, three unvaccinated staff who did not wish to receive the shots sought a judicial review of the mandate. They were supported by affidavits from 37 of their colleagues in the same position.

One of the Coutts border blockade protesters charged with a weapons offence told supporters that Mounties were pushing them to a violent confrontation rejected by demonstrators.
In a video posted to Facebook on Sunday, just hours before she was arrested for mischief and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, Jaclyne Martin noted RCMP had disabled protesters' heavy equipment so it couldn't be driven onto Highway 4 to block the border crossing.
"The RCMP admitted to that vandalism," said Martin, 39, while calling for more support at the blockade that was cleared two days later after more than two weeks of protests.

The political action committee said it was launching the motorcades in the first month of March. One would travel from California through the Southwest and Deep South to DC. Two others would originate in Ohio and end in the capital.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he's invoking the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canada's history to give the federal government temporary powers to handle ongoing blockades and protests against pandemic restrictions.
"It is now clear that there are serious challenges to law enforcement's ability to effectively enforce the law," Trudeau told a news conference Monday afternoon.
"It is no longer a lawful protest at a disagreement over government policy. It is now an illegal occupation. It's time for people to go home."

BBC reports: Canada trucker protest: What powers will Emergencies Act give Trudeau? - The law will grant Mr Trudeau's government extraordinary powers for 30 days - including the power to prohibit public assembly, travel and the use of specific property.
BBC, February 15, 2022
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has invoked the never-used Emergencies Act to give his government enhanced authority in response to the anti-vaccine mandate protests and blockades gripping Canada.
The law will grant Mr Trudeau's government extraordinary powers for 30 days - including the power to prohibit public assembly, travel and the use of specific property.
Under the Act, the government has a number of far-reaching powers at its disposal.
The government could bar travel to or from specific areas - from Parliament Hill or major border crossings, for example. It could order the evacuation of people and personal property from certain areas, possibly using this power to clear out congested areas of protesters. And it could direct individuals and companies to render essential services, perhaps ordering tow-truck companies to lend their services and clear the roads of demonstrators and their vehicles.

While Quebec is in full confinement mode, Florida is Cowboyland, where you barely know COVID is happening, despite much higher new case and hospitalization rates than ours .
It's lunacy by Canadian standards, but an eye-opening experience. For starters, everyone's out and about, filling bars, restaurants, movies, gyms, and jam-packed sports arenas.
Stores and supermarkets don't require masks but some cashiers and customers wear them, though often under their nose or chin - Florida-style. It seems a way of announcing: "Look - I'm masked!" when they're not.
Nearly 80 per cent of the Canadian population is vaccinated with at least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. But with studies pointing to the protective benefits of these vaccines, it may be puzzling to see that the majority of virus-related hospitalizations in most provinces involve people who are fully vaccinated against the disease.
...A recent study conducted in Ontario looked at the effectiveness of two and three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine against Delta and Omicron among about 20,000 patients in December. Results showed that six months after receiving two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, little protection remained against symptomatic illness from the Omicron variant.

Canadians have done as they were told during the pandemic. They lined up for shots until the country had one of the developed world's best vaccination rates; they endured some of North America's longest lockdowns; and they've complied with a wide assortment of curfews and quarantines.
But even in a society known for its civility and deference to authority, many are reaching their limit.
Pent-up frustration and rage have burst into the downtown core of the nation's capital, with hundreds of truckers and other protesters occupying Ottawa's streets for nearly a week to oppose vaccine mandates. The group has been championed on Fox News and by Joe Rogan, Elon Musk and Donald Trump. Demonstrators have built makeshift shelters and collecting propane tanks, vowing to stay until vaccine mandates are lifted.

The move begins a two-part relaxation of curbs announced at the end of January -- despite the country hitting record levels of daily cases last month -- and comes as England and Denmark also eased their restrictions.

The protection people experience after recovering from COVID-19, known widely as natural immunity, lasts for at least 18 months, according to a recently published study.
Researchers in Italy analyzed the level of antibodies in 36 patients who were documented as contracting COVID-19 in March 2020.
"At 18 months, 97% participants tested positive for anti-NCP, hinting towards the persistence of infection-induced immunity even for the vaccinated individuals," researchers wrote.

Do you ever notice how almost all of the leaders of almost all the countries in the Western world, particularly in the English-speaking Western world, seem kind of the same? They're what we call neoliberal. They're all weak and fearful, if you think about it. And yet if you listen to them talk, you'd think they were omnipotent.
...Now, mostly they're puny people. But when they speak, they sound like Caesar standing in purple robes in the forum, commanding the known world.

Hundreds of protestors have gathered in front of Australia's Parliament House in solidarity with the massive Convoy to Ottawa that converged on the Canadian capital around the weekend of Jan. 29.
Calls for a similar movement have been echoing Down Under for days, and on Jan. 31, a crowd organised under a "Convoy to Canberra" campaign gathered in front of the national legislature, according to videos circulating on social media.
The crowd can be heard chanting, "What do you want? Freedom! When do we want it? Now!"

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia made it illegal for people to gather along a highway ahead of the "Freedom Convoy" of truckers that made their way across the country in protest of vaccine mandates.
The local government issued "a directive under the Emergency Management Act prohibiting protesters from blockading Highway 104 near the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border."
The directive specifically states supporters of the Freedom Convoy and another protest, the Atlantic Hold the Line event, can't gather along Highway 104, on the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border. The directive states that "allowing people to gather in those areas would put themselves and others at risk."

The police had warned Xie Yang, a human rights lawyer, not to go to Shanghai to visit the mother of a dissident. He went to the airport anyway.
His phone's health code app - a digital pass indicating possible exposure to the coronavirus - was green, which meant he could travel. His home city, Changsha, had no Covid-19 cases, and he had not left in weeks.
Then his app turned red, flagging him as high risk. Airport security tried to put him in quarantine, but he resisted. Mr. Xie accused the authorities of meddling with his health code to bar him from traveling.
"The Chinese Communist Party has found the best model for controlling people," he said in a telephone interview in December. This month, the police detained Mr. Xie, a government critic, accusing him of inciting subversion and provoking trouble.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family were moved from their residence to a secret location on Saturday due to the security risk posed by growing anti-vax protests in the capitol of Ottawa, CBC reports. Protestors initially descended on the streets Saturday to push back against the country's vaccination mandate for long-haul truck drivers, many of whom operate across the U.S.-Canadian border. However, it has since turned into a massive-though currently peaceful-protest against a variety of public health measures. Many truckers and other protesters have flooded the parliamentary precinct. Trudeau is currently in isolation after one of his children tested positive for COVID.
Majority (54%) now say they want all restrictions to end - increase of 15-points since early January
Angus Reid Institute, January 31, 2022
If Omicron cases have indeed ebbed, it has many Canadians asking what is next. Vigilance is the request from public health officials - though plans for vaccination proof have begun to diverge, with some provinces removing requirements and restrictions. The public sentiment appears to be moving in the direction of opening up communities. Indeed, in the past two weeks the number of Canadians saying they would like to see restrictions ended has risen by 15 percentage points, to a majority (54%):
New York Post, January 29, 2022
A convoy of Canadian truckers and their supporters rolled into the nation's capital city of Ottawa Saturday to protest Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The so-called "Freedom Convoy" started as a protest against a vaccine requirement for cross-border truckers, but grew into a mass demonstration against the Canadian government over other coronavirus regulations. ...By the end of the day, about 2,700 trucks were expected, a federal government source told Reuters.
The protests have drawn support from some Conservative lawmakers who oppose vaccine mandates in both the US and Canada and others including Tesla founder Elon Musk and Donald Trump Jr.
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Saturday, Jan 29, 2022
Update (1500ET): While in a normal world this would be beyond satire and ridicule, it is perhaps of no surprise whatsoever that the blame for instigation of the "Freedom Convoy" is already being placed on so-called 'Russian actors'...
[CBC]..."...given Canada's support of Ukraine... I don't know it it's far-fetched to ask but there is concern that Russian actors could be continuing to fuel things as this protest grows... perhaps even instigating it..."
As Brian Lilley writes at The Toronto Sun, "the media in this country is not acting as a neutral observer and conduit for news on this matter, most have decided the trucker convoy is the enemy and are treating it as such."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not comment Saturday on the Freedom Convoy 2022 demonstration in Ottawa as thousands of people and hundreds of trucks descended on Parliament Hill in numbers so large police closed the city core to traffic. ...CBC reported Saturday morning that Trudeau and family were relocated from their home at Rideau Cottage to an undisclosed location for their safety. ...However, after he was relocated, Trudeau remained active on Twitter.
Why the double-vaccinated in some places are testing positive for COVID more often than the unvaccinated
Tom Blackwell, National Post,Jan 27, 2022
As one infectious-disease specialist said, the trend is "curious." In at least three provinces lately, Canadians who are double-vaccinated have been more likely to test positive for COVID than the unvaccinated, a fact that has been seized on by anti-vaccination activists as supposed evidence the shots don't work.
On Monday in Alberta , for instance, 89 in 100,000 people who had received two doses of vaccine tested positive for the coronavirus, compared to 68 in 100,000 of those who have so far avoided vaccination.

OTTAWA - The first trucks in a massive convoy organized to protest the federal government's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for cross-border big-rig drivers have left Kingston, Ont., and are on their way to the Ottawa area.
Kingston police announced on Twitter that the last vehicles in the convoy had departed the city around 9:30 a.m. Friday, putting its likely arrival in the capital at around noon.
The convoy has been gaining participants and supporters as it rolls across the country from all directions for a weekend rally.

Sweden's health authority said Thursday that it would not recommend COVID-19 vaccinations for all children aged five to 11, the country again choosing a different coronavirus policy than much of Europe.
The Scandinavian country, which controversially opted against any form of lockdown or school closures during the pandemic's early days, recommended jabs only for children who were at risk.
"The vaccines are safe, there are very good vaccines but we are now focusing on the medical benefits of the individual child and we don't see that the benefits are great enough for us to recommend for the whole group," Britta Bjorklund of the Public Health Agency said.

Denmark Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced on January 26 Denmark would be throwing out most of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions it placed, including mask mandates.
Restrictions currently in place are for the public to wear masks on public transportations, in restaurants, in shops, and people entering healthcare facilities and retirement homes, according to the Associated Press. However, following the February 1 change of restrictions, masks will only be required in hospitals, healthcare facilities and homes for the elderly.
"We say goodbye to the restrictions and welcome the life we knew before," Frederiksen said. "As of Feb. 1, Denmark will be open."

Oppressive COVID Measures for the Unvaccinated Were Based on 'Software' Error, Claims German Minister.
Wahagen Khabayan, The National Pulse, January 24, 2022
The "pandemic of the unvaccinated" was caused by a computer glitch. That was the conclusion of the Health Minister of Germany Karl Lauterbach, after months of vilifying the unvaccinated in the nation's second largest city, Hamburg.
...Now, an investigation from the Sueddeutscher Zeitung and Welt newspapers has found that the numbers in Hamburg's Social Services departments were drastically skewed and, in most cases, they didn't even know who was vaccinated and who was not. This, however, did not stop them classifying everyone with an unknown status as unvaccinated. Indeed, by the end of November, a whopping 70 percent of the positive cases had unknown status.

A New York State judge ruled on Monday that the state's mask mandate had been enacted unlawfully and is now void, according to court documents.
Gov. Kathy Hochul had renewed a rule requiring masks or proof of vaccination at all indoor public places throughout the state in December, amid a winter virus surge, and said it would last a month. The state Health Department then extended the mandate an additional two weeks, to expire on Feb. 1.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is saying he's sorry for invoking Anne Frank and the Holocaust in the off-the-rails speech he gave at an anti-vaccine mandate rally over the weekend.
"I apologize for my reference to Anne Frank, especially to families that suffered the Holocaust horrors," Kennedy announced Tuesday on Twitter. "My intention was to use examples of past barbarism to show the perils from new technologies of control. To the extent my remarks caused hurt, I am truly and deeply sorry."
Kennedy drew massive outrage in recent days for his speech on Washington, where he pushed an amalgamation of conspiracy theories that vaccines and mandates are part of Bill Gates' plot to use satellites and 5G cell phone technology to subjugate humanity under totalitarian control. Kennedy drew the most condemnation, however, when he compared vaccine mandate opponents to Jews who hid from the Nazis during the Holocaust.

Hans Kluge, the World Health Organization's Europe director, says the continent is moving towards an "endgame" scenario, in another sign that Omicron heralds the beginning of the end of the pandemic.
Despite record cases being recorded in multiple different countries, Kluge told AFP that the milder nature of Omicron means COVID-19 could finally be on the path towards becoming endemic.
"It's plausible that the region is moving towards a kind of pandemic endgame," said Kluge.
"There will be for quite some weeks and months a global immunity, either thanks to the vaccine or because people have immunity due to the infection, and also lowering seasonality," he added.

The Government has announced it will axe the use of mandatory Covid vaccine passports in England as plan B restrictions are set to lift next week.
Speaking in Parliament today, Boris Johnson outlined the next steps for living with coronavirus, saying plan B measures, brought in to control the spread of Omicron, will be allowed to expire on March 24, and that this date could be brought forward.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced England will return to Plan A after claiming "our scientists believe it is likely that the Omicron wave has now peaked nationally".
WHO Chief Scientist Dr Swaminathan: "...there's no evidence right now that healthy children, or healthy adolescents, need boosters. No evidence at all."
Samantha Taylor, The Blaze, January 19, 2022
Dr. Soumya Swaminathan - the World Health Organization's chief scientist - says that there is zero evidence to support the idea that otherwise healthy children and adolescents need a booster shot of a COVID-19 vaccine.
What are the details?
During a Tuesday media briefing, Swaminathan said that while she believes there is a certain degree that vaccine immunity wanes amid the Omicron spike, more research needs to be conducted around who actually needs booster shots, Reuters reported.

Some of the Netherland's most celebrated museums, concert halls and art centers opened their doors Wednesday to host hairdressers, nail artists and fitness instructors, in playful protest against what they see as inconsistencies in the country's coronavirus protocols.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said last week that businesses such as beauty salons and fitness centers would be allowed to resume operations after a strict lockdown that was imposed in mid-December. But cultural venues such as theaters and galleries would remain shut for at least another week, he said.
Effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines against Omicron or Delta infection
Background The incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection, including among those who have received 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines, has increased substantially since Omicron was first identified in the province of Ontario, Canada.
Results ...In contrast, receipt of 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines was not protective against Omicron. Vaccine effectiveness against Omicron was 37% (95%CI, 19-50%) ≥7 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine for the third dose.
Conclusions Two doses of COVID-19 vaccines are unlikely to protect against infection by Omicron. A third dose provides some protection in the immediate term, but substantially less than against Delta. Our results may be confounded by behaviours that we were unable to account for in our analyses. Further research is needed to examine protection against severe outcomes.
The C.D.C. concedes that cloth masks do not protect against the virus as effectively as other masks.
Apoorva Mandavilli, NYT, Jan. 14, 2022Updated Jan. 15, 2022
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday clarified its stance on various kinds of masks, acknowledging that the cloth masks frequently worn by Americans do not offer as much protection as surgical masks or respirators.
While this disparity is widely known to the general public, the update marks the first time the C.D.C. has explicitly addressed the differences. The agency's website also no longer refers to a shortage of respirators.

He told The Epoch Times that the ruling is "another serious denial of scientific fact" specifically mentioning the denial of natural immunity in CMS vaccine mandates.
'Open the damn country back up': Jordan Peterson calls on Canadians to have 'courage' in fight against lockdowns
Anthony Murdoch, LifeSite, Wed Jan 12, 2022
(LifeSiteNews) - Popular Canadian psychologist and cultural analyst Jordan Peterson called upon his fellow countrymen to have "some courage" to fight back against COVID lockdowns and demand that Canada "open up."
"Enough, Canadians. Enough, Canadian politicos. Enough masks. Enough social gathering limitations. Enough restaurant closures. Enough undermining of social trust. Make the bloody vaccines available to those who want them," wrote Peterson in a January 10 opinion piece published in the National Post. "Set a date. Open the damn country back up, before we wreck something we can't fix. Time for some courage. Let's live again."
Covid infections and deaths SOAR after the first vaccine dose Stunning figures from Canada show a huge spike in cases after vaccinations
Alex Berenson, January 14, 2022
The Covid vaccines look worse and worse.
A reader has pointed out an amazing dataset from the province of Alberta, Canada which reports Covid cases, hospitalizations, and deaths by day after the first and second vaccine doses.
Infections, hospitalizations, and deaths from Covid all soar in the days and weeks after people receive their first vaccine dose. Alberta has about 4.4 million people, so this sample is not small. The vast majority of vaccines given in the province are the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, though about 10 percent are the DNA/AAV vaccines, mostly from AstraZeneca, which is not used in the United States.
The figures further support the national-level data from Israel and Britain, which last year saw Covid deaths hit all-time highs just after they began mass vaccination campaigns.

Collette Martin, a practicing nurse who testified before a Louisiana Health and Welfare Committee hearing December 6, 2021. Martin claims she and her colleagues have witnessed "terrifying" reactions to the COVID shots among children - including blood clots, heart attacks, encephalopathy and arrhythmias - yet their concerns are simply dismissed.
Among elderly patients, she's noticed an uptick in falls and acute onset of confusion "without any known etiology." Coworkers are also experiencing side effects, such as vision and cardiovascular problems.
Martin points out that few doctors or nurses are aware the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) even exists, so injury reports are not being filed. Hospitals also are not gathering data on COVID jab injuries in any other ways, so there's no data to investigate even if you wanted to.

A Republican Party congressman has compared mask and vaccine mandates to Nazi Germany, the latest in a growing number of politicians around the world to do so.
Rep. Warren Davidson of Ohio tweeted a picture of a Nazi health document called a "gesundheitspass" on Wednesday, saying the "Nazis dehumanized Jewish people before segregating them."
Davidson posted the image in response to a tweet from Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, DC, reminding people they would need to show proof of vaccination and wear masks to enter some city venues from January 15.

A Quebec Superior Court judge has temporarily suspended a father's right to see his child based on evidence that the man is not vaccinated against COVID-19 and appears to oppose government anti-pandemic health measures.
In a decision published Dec. 23, Justice J. Sébastien Vaillancourt wrote that continued visitation was not in the interest of the 12-year-old child or the child's two younger half-siblings, given the state of the pandemic.
The decision states the man told the court that despite his "reservations" surrounding vaccination, he followed the rules in place and rarely left home.
However, Vaillancourt wrote that posts on the father's Facebook page suggested he was a conspiracy theorist, which led the court to doubt he was following health rules as he claimed.

MONTREAL - Adult Quebecers who refuse to be vaccinated against COVID-19 will be forced to pay a "significant" financial penalty, Premier Francois Legault said Tuesday, one day after the sudden resignation of the province's public health director.
The penalty would be the first of its kind in Canada and would apply to unvaccinated residents who don't have a medical exemption, Legault told reporters in Montreal. The "health contribution" is necessary, he said, because about 10 per cent of adult Quebecers aren't vaccinated, but they represent about half of all patients in intensive care
