Canadian Doctors Speaking Out
More covid news: How will we know that a covid-19 vaccine is safe?
The first principle of medical and health care practice is to do no harm. Furthermore, evidence-based medical information should be the determining factor in all governmental healthcare rules, policies, and procedures. The current government measures regarding COVID are not supported by evidence-based medical research and many of these measures are harmful to individuals, families and society in general. In partnership with Canadian Health Alliance, based on the lack of medical evidence and harm being caused, we call on all levels of government to immediately stop promoting the following measures:
- Lockdowns and physical distancing
- Promoting the use of masks
- Handwashing and cleaning surfaces with toxic disinfectants
- Quarantines of asymptomatic people and social isolation
- Using RT-PCR testing on people
- Advocating inadequately tested gene-modifying COVID-19 vaccinations (insufficient human and animal trials)
- Unnecessary COVID-19 policies at hospitals and other health care facilities
- Business closures or restrictions
- Restrictions on churches and places of worship
- Closures of public facilities including schools, playgrounds, parks and recreational facilities
- Misrepresentation of the COVID situation in the media
- The use of fear and other psychological coercion techniques
The CANADA HEALTH ALLIANCE is a non-profit collaboration of medical doctors, nurses, chiropractors, naturopaths, pharmacists, and other healthcare practitioners from across Canada whose common goal is to protect the rights of our patients to access the highest quality healthcare available, continued freedom of choice, and autonomy through informed consent.
Our goal is to halt the misuse of power by politicized public health “experts” currently being conveyed through damaging COVID-19 public health policies that are destroying Canadian society and the health of Canadians.

Concern mounts over censorship of Canadian doctors
A video of Canadian doctors listing reasons not to be afraid of COVID-19 was censored within minutes of being posted to YouTube, says a group advocating to end government lockdowns.
Liberty Coalition Canada posted the video to YouTube on Monday morning, and 20 minutes later, the video-sharing platform removed the post citing a violation of its policy.
“YouTube censored us really quickly, almost immediately,” said Liberty Coalition campaign manager Michael Thiessen.
The move is indicative of the escalating censorship for anyone questioning the government’s approach to COVID-19, contended Independent MP Derek Sloan, a member of the End the Lockdowns National Caucus.
“What we’re seeing is: whatever the prevailing consensus is — if you run counter to that, then you’re silenced,” Sloan told iPolitics on Tuesday.
“But good science is all about consent and discussion, and we seem to be seeing the shutdown of that debate.”
The video in question was created by The Canada Health Alliance, a group of medical doctors, nurses and other health practitioners with a goal to protect patients’ freedom of choice and autonomy through informed consent. Some professionals in the Canada Health Alliance are also part of the Liberty Coalition initiative Professionals Against Lockdowns.
The video, which was posted yesterday, and had been viewed on Rumble nearly 57,000 times at the time of iPolitics’ publication, begins with an introduction from B.C. medical doctor Stephen Malthouse.
Malthouse lists a range of reasons not to be afraid of the novel coronavirus, including that: the vast majority of people with COVID-19 have few or no symptoms of being sick; there are less patients in the ICU than in the previous three years; and that yearly deaths since 2001 have remained relatively steady, other than a slight uptick in deaths in 2020, which he attributes to an aging population.
He also says COVID deaths in children are so rare the death rate is statistically zero. Meanwhile, the survival rate for those under 50 is greater than 99.9 per cent, or 94.6 per cent for those over 70, before early treatment like Vitamin C or D.
In a policy published in May 2020 to respond to COVID-19 videos, YouTube said it doesn’t allow content that spreads medical misinformation, including claims about vaccinations that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization.
In what Sloan describes as the most controversial part of the video, Malthouse says PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests are “practically worthless,” with research now showing that only three per cent of people with a positive PCR actually have COVID-19.
This is worth debating because Ottawa is basing most of its decisions off case-counts determined by PRC tests, said Sloan.
“If there is a critique for them… that’s a discussion worth having.”
The eastern Ontario MP, who was booted from the Conservative caucus earlier this year and is one of just two federal politicians critical of government lockdowns, said it’s difficult to prove the video contains inaccuracies, due to varying opinions among medical experts.
And even if a factual error is proven “we live in a democracy where people are allowed to throw things out there, they’re allowed to be wrong,” he added.
Instead, Sloan said experts with dissenting opinions are being threatened by their professional organizations.
Roger Hodkinson, a pathologist in Edmonton, Ab., said the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta sent practitioners a letter warning them not to speak to patients, or even neighbours, about a counter COVID-19 narrative.
Hodkinson has been wide-ranging in his criticism of the government’s response to the COVID-crisis, including to say vaccines, masks and lockdowns are not needed because the general public is not at risk from COVID-19. He’s also said the vaccines as presently tested are unsafe.
Interviews he’s given on the novel coronavirus have all been removed from Facebook and YouTube, he told iPolitics, adding that censorship of his views is especially “sinister” because it maintains ignorance among the public.
“People just don’t understand, first of all, how mild this disease is… and how unnecessary a vaccine is, and how unsafe it is at this point in time,” he said.
Sloan said the censorship is coming at a time of both unprecedented deficits and curtailing of civil liberties, saying “if there’s ever a time for free and open discussion, it is now.”
