BC Volunteers Launch MLA Accountability Initiative

The accountability of our elected officials is considered a basic tenet of democracy. An MLA Accountability Initiative was launched by Common Law Education and Rights (CLEAR), Truth Matters and other Freedom groups across BC on February 22 and followed up on April 28. Volunteers presented MLAs or their staff at 22 different offices with information packages providing accurate, up-to-date Covid science and questions to be asked in the BC Legislature regarding the impacts of the government’s actions on Charter rights and freedoms. The first round was completed one week prior to the opening of the Legislature to give MLAs time to read the material. The initiative was followed up by phone calls, letters and additional visits to MLA offices. Volunteer Kyle Cardinal travelled to Victoria to personally ensure the packages were delivered to the Legislature and all 87 MLAs.

“They’ve received the information in-person and by email, so none of them can claim not to have received it,” says Truth Matters volunteer Marcie Crozier. “We also sent press releases and the letters we sent to MLAs to a hundred media outlets in BC.”  

Kootenay Freedom volunteer Nadine Podmoroff reported that the Castlegar office of MLA Katrine Conroy (Kootenay West), current Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, is closed, with a sign reading: “Working from home.” Like Conroy, most MLAs seem to be working from home.

“So you have to wonder why we’re paying rent for Conroy’s office if she isn’t using it,” says Podmoroff. “They are purposely ignoring questions that people within the constituency are legitimately asking.”

A similar response awaited those who met outside MLA Britny Anderson’s office (Nelson-Creston) on April 28th. Although staff was present, the door was locked and volunteers seeking their attention were ignored. Nelson City Police showed up but did nothing, as the event was peaceful. According to Kelowna volunteer David Lindsay of CLEAR Freedom, about 20 people gathered outside the office of Opposition Health Critic Renee Merrifield (Liberal), who was in Victoria at the time. A secretary for Merrifield accepted more supporting material and listened to questions and concerns. When asked why Merrifield hasn’t posed any questions in the Legislature she said she didn’t know.

Useful questions left unasked by our elected representatives. Photo by the author.

“I explained to her how angry we were, along with thousands of others,” said Lindsay, “that Merrifield has failed to ask our questions in the Leg and contributed to our enslavement, along with deaths, pain and suffering of people without factual or legal basis.”

In Salmon Arm, about 25 people protested peacefully outside MLA Greg Kyllo’s constituency office. Again, Kyllo—who serves as BC Liberal Party Deputy Caucus Whip and Official Opposition Labour Critic—was not in the office and is said to be working from home. Only two BC MLAs have spoken out so far: Doug Clovechok (Columbia River-Revelstoke) and Tom Shypitka (Kootenay East). They spoke on behalf of employers and workers frustrated with province-wide restrictions allowing only outdoor patio service for restaurants. Clovechok and Shypitka pointed out the fallacy of a one-size-fits-all regulation from the balmy provincial capital in Victoria when parts of the BC Interior were still experiencing near-zero temperatures. They advocated for a regional approach to guidelines. Federal MP Rob Morrison (Kootenay-Columbia) stated he would follow their lead in Ottawa. “We need evidence-based decision-making if we are to shut down businesses that are hanging on by a thread,” said Morrison.

Among the questions proposed for legislative debate is one that asks: “Exactly how many cycles is the Ministry using in its PCR tests at present, and has this been consistent from the beginning, or has the Ministry used different numbers of cycles in the past, and if so, how many?” Regarding Covid vaccines, the question is raised: “Historically, it has taken about seven years for a vaccine to go through testing and reach the market. The present vaccines have been rolled out in less than six months… these vaccines are the first mRNA vaccines to be tested. With these documented facts in mind, why is this Government promoting vaccines that are still in the experimental stage, and that have been and continue to be only experimented upon humans?”   

“We checked the Hansard records,” says Nadine Podmoroff, a volunteer with the Kootenay Freedom group. “After one month of legislative session, not one MLA had raised any of our questions in the Legislature.”

The official record of the BC Legislature, The Hansard, reveals that MLAs have spoken about how important it is to get Covid vaccines to elderly and Indigenous communities as fast as possible. Official Opposition criticism so far has been limited to chastising the government for not distributing vaccines fast enough. Questions about potential adverse reactions to this experimental, trial phase vaccine have so far been left unaddressed. The US database Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), which is voluntary and thus captures only an estimated one percent of all such reactions, records more than 118,000 adverse reactions in that country alone from these new vaccines, including 3,544 deaths.[1] This is more than American deaths from all vaccines combined during the past 15 years. Canada’s adverse events reporting system continues to insist upon a “one in a million” adverse reaction rate that is not supported by other data. Questions remain as to the accuracy of both these databases.

Volunteers plan to continue monitoring the Hansard and MLAs’ record of action or inaction, with further actions planned to hold their MLAs accountable. Local activists are building a coalition with Alberta groups raising similar concerns with their MLAs. The Truth Matters (https://www.truth-matters.ca/) website provides the documentation, MLA letters and other resources available to anyone who wishes to use them.

To date only automated responses to this reporter’s questions have been received from the four MLAs queried.

Vaccination Selfies Part 2: Nine Tragic Stories

In Part 1 I discussed the adverse reaction rates to Covid “vaccines” being reported (or under-reported), and why these statistics are likely a small fraction of the actual total. I also provided information about vaccine injury compensation programs, which again are woefully inadequate to the task. “Let the buyer beware” remains as essential a warning in today’s world as it ever was. We share with these families the grief and stress they must be suffering and pray they receive loving support from loved ones and their communities. Given the way we have been abandoned to the ravages of corrupt governments and healthcare systems, that may be all that is left to us. That, and the vital role of knowledge in protecting ourselves and those we care about. (All links and references provided at end of article.)

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #1: 18-year-old suffers blood clots

Emma Burkey, a Nevada teen who received Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) Covid vaccine on April 1 underwent three brain surgeries to repair blood clots she developed about a week after receiving the vaccine, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. According to family spokesperson Bret Johnson, after Burkey, 18, suffered seizures, doctors placed her in an induced coma and on a respirator. The high school senior has improved and is now awake and off the respirator, but still requires a tracheostomy tube, which has impaired her ability to speak.”

“As The Defender reported April 16, Children’s Health Defense queried data from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) for events associated with clotting disorders. VAERS yielded a total of 795 reports for all three vaccines from Dec. 14, 2020, through April 8. Of the 795 cases reported, there were 400 reports attributed to Pfizer, 337 reports to Moderna and 56 reports associated with J&J.”[1]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #2: 33-year-old woman partially paralyzed

“A healthy 33-year-old woman in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, who asked to remain anonymous, experienced paralysis 12 hours after getting her first dose of the Pfizer Covid vaccine and is still hospitalized, WPXI-TV reported. The Pennsylvania woman said she initially felt fine after being vaccinated, but woke up in the middle of the night with no feeling in her arms or legs.”

“Paramedics rushed her to the hospital where she was later transferred to the Cleveland Clinic where doctors ran tests to figure out how and why she suffered paralysis. An MRI and spinal tap were clear and blood work all came back negative, ruling out any rare diseases or disorders. Although she has regained feeling and strength in her arms, she has no function from her lower chest down besides very slight movement in a few toes.”

“A search on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) for paralysis, including transverse myelitis, myelitis, paralysis and Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), yielded 151 total reports. Eighty-eight cases of paralysis-related disorders were reported with Pfizer, 62 with Moderna and 11 with Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) vaccine.”[2]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #3: 63-year-old woman dead

Virginia Ellington, 63, died just 48 hours after receiving the J&J “vaccine.” Image courtesy Health Impact News.

“Family friends of Virginia Ellington, a North Carolina college professor who taught at Appalachian State University, have contacted Health Impact News to inform us of the 63-year-old’s death just 48 hours after receiving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.”

“Ellington’s daughter Becca Ingle said the local doctor, who did a preliminary examination, told the family that her mother died of a stroke. The local medical examiner, a paramedic and a teacher who signed the death certificate, wrote that the vaccine was one of the “significant conditions contributing to her death.” Ingle says her mother was in good health prior to her death.”

Dr. Stephan Moll, a medical professor, researcher and hematologist at UNC Health, believes connecting the vaccine to a stroke is a rush to judgment. But the family is unconvinced. “It (the vaccine) definitely escalated things,” Ingle said. “Whether she was going to have a stroke in 30 years or whether she was going to have it now, it definitely triggered it.””[3]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #4: 43-year-old Mississippi man paralyzed

“On April 15, it was reported that a healthy 43-year-old Mississippi man suffered a stroke and subsequent paralysis hours after being vaccinated with J&J’s Covid vaccine. He is unable to walk or talk, and is paralyzed on one side of his body. The family believes ‘without a doubt’ the vaccine was the cause.”

“A systematic review I SAGE journals of TM (Transverse Myelitis) revealed 37 cases of transverse myelitis reported with different vaccines, including MMR, hepatitis B and DPT. Researchers found that in rare cases, vaccines may be associated with autoimmune phenomena like transverse myelitis and speculated that a common denominator like an adjuvant, might trigger this syndrome.”[4]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #5: 68-year-old Kansas woman dead

“Kansas Department of Health and Environment spokesperson Kristi Zears told The Wichita Eagle that Evans had an anaphylactic reaction during a waiting period after receiving the shot. She was transported to the hospital and pronounced dead a day later. It is not clear whether Evans had underlying health conditions and the Kansas health agency did not indicate which Covid vaccine was administered.” [5]

“A March 26 report from VAERS revealed 2,306 reports of anaphylaxis in response to COVID “vaccines.” Fifty-five percent of anaphylaxis reports were attributed to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, 45% to Moderna and 1% to the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine, which was rolled out in the U.S. on March 2.” [6]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #6: 39-year-old woman dead

“Kassidi Kurill, a 39-year-old healthy single mother from Utah died four days after taking a second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Feb. 1. According to local news channel KUTV, her family said that Kurill, who was a surgical technician for plastic surgeons, “had more energy” than most people around her and was a happy person with no known health problems. After receiving the “vaccine,” her liver ceased functioning but she died before she could be stabilized in time for an organ transplant. Kurill’s family is still waiting for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.”[7]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #7: 36-year-old doctor dead

Dr. Barton Williams, 36, died several weeks after receiving his second dose of an unspecified Covid vaccine. Image courtesy Children’s Health Defense.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating the death of Dr. Barton Williams, a 36-year-old doctor in Tennessee who died Feb. 8, about a month after receiving the second dose of a COVID vaccination. According to news reports, Dr. Williams died from the adult form of multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-A), a condition caused when the immune system attacks the body resulting in multi-system organ failure. MIS-A is considered extremely rare. Dr. Todd Rice from Vanderbilt University Medical Center said most often, people who get MIS have either a mild or asymptomatic COVID case. “It’s not the virus causing the damage here. It’s the body’s inflammatory response to the virus that is causing the problems,” said Rice.”[8] [9]

NOTE: This is also known in medical parlance as a “cytokine storm,” when the immune system is over-stimulated and regulatory genes fail to shut off immune response before it begins attacking the body’s own cells or organs.

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #8: 58-year-old woman dead

Drene Keyes, 58, died hours after receiving Pfizer’s Covid vaccine. Courtesy Children’s Health Defense.

“State and federal officials are investigating the death of a 58-year-old woman in Virginia, who died hours after receiving the first dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. Drene Keyes, described as a “gifted singer and grandmother of six,” found herself unable to breathe and began vomiting within a couple hours of being vaccinated, according to media reports. She was rushed to Riverside Tappahannock Hospital, where doctors administered an EpiPen, CPR and oxygen.”

“Keyes’ daughter, Lisa Jones, told WKTR: “They tried to remove fluid from her lungs. They called it ‘flash pulmonary edema,’ and doctors told me that it can be caused by anaphylaxis. The doctor told me that often during anaphylaxis, chemicals are released inside of a person’s body and can cause this to happen.””

“Virginia Health Commissioner M. Norman Oliver told NBC News today that “preliminary findings” indicate that the cause of death was not anaphylaxis, but it will take several weeks for additional information to become available. “We can confirm that the death occurred within hours of having received the vaccine, but that is not evidence of it being related,” Oliver said.”[10]

As Robert F. Kennedy Jr. writes: “The routine of reflexively dismissing suspicious deaths and injuries as unrelated to vaccination not only calls into doubt the official data tallies on vaccine injuries, it also contrasts markedly with the habit among public health officials of authoritatively attributing every death to COVID-19 so long as the deceased tested positive for Covid within 60 days of death using a PCR test notorious for producing false positives.”[11]

“Pfizer touts a 95% efficacy rate in its clinical trials, but this is a meaningless measure of “relative efficacy” based on a tiny cohort of 94 people in the placebo group who got mild cases of Covid during the clinical trials. The “absolute,” or “actual,” efficacy of the vaccine during clinical trials was 0.88%. According to the British Medical Journal, this means that health authorities must administer 155 vaccines to avert a single case of mild COVID.”[12]

Kennedy, the founder of Children’s Health Defense, is a well-respected lawyer who has represented families whose children have suffered adverse, often life-altering reactions to vaccines, including autism.

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #8: 60-year-old lab tech dead

“Officials in Orange County, California, are investigating the death of a 60-year-old healthcare worker who died four days after receiving his second injection of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine. Tim Zook, an x-ray technologist at South Coast Global Medical Center in Santa Ana, was hospitalized on Jan. 5, several hours after being vaccinated. Zook’s wife, Rochelle Zook, told the Orange County Register that her husband’s health rapidly deteriorated over the next few days. He died Jan. 9. Tim Zook was “quite healthy” his wife said, though he took medication for high blood pressure and was slightly overweight.”[13]

Vaccination ‘Selfie’ #9: 56-year-old doctor dead

Dr. Gregory Michael, 56, died of ITP-induced stroke weeks after receiving the Pfizer/BioNtech “vaccine.” Medical examiners ruled there was no cause and effect despite his otherwise healthy condition. Yet another coincidence? Image courtesy Children’s Health Defense.

“On January 3, Dr. Gregory Michael, a beloved Miami obstetrician and enthusiastic COVID-19 vaccine booster, died of a hemorrhagic stroke after receiving Pfizer/BioNtech’s vaccine. Dr. Michael developed acute idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura(ITP)—a known vaccine side effect—immediately after receiving the jab. His platelet count dropped from 150,000 to zero and never rebounded.”

“An army of experts from around the world, involved in the vaccine program, consulted in doomed efforts to restore Dr. Michael’s platelet count. The inevitable brain hemorrhage killed him two weeks later. Michael’s wife said that her husband’s death was “100% linked to the vaccine. She added that he was physically healthy, exercised often, rarely drank alcohol, never smoked cigarettes and had no known comorbidities.”

“According to the New York Times: “Dr. Jerry L. Spivak, an expert on blood disorders at Johns Hopkins University, who was not involved in Dr. Michael’s care, said that based on Ms. Neckelmann’s description, ‘I think it is a medical certainty that the vaccine was related.’” Yet according to the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department, there was “no medical certainty” the vaccine caused Michael’s death. Yet another coincidence? Come on. Get real. Have some human compassion for these poor families. [1]

Vaccination ‘Selfies’ Part 1: The Risks Are All Yours

Eighteen-year-old Emma Burkey develops blood clots requiring three brain surgeries a week after receiving Johnson & Johnson’s Covid vaccine. Dr. Gregory Michael, 56, a healthy Miami obstetrician with no previous co-morbidities dies of a hemorrhagic stroke after receiving the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine. Virginia Ellington, 63, an otherwise perfectly healthy North Carolina college professor, dies of a stroke just 48 hours after receiving the Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine. In a small British Columbia community, a doctor raises the alarm after three of his patients are disabled after receiving the Moderna vaccine and one dies three weeks after receiving the injection.

Meanwhile Twitter users are being invited to post their “vaccination selfies,” as usual without one word of caution about these trial phase, experimental drugs, which many scientists have explained do not meet the clinical definition of a vaccine. They are more accurately referred to as “gene therapies” that use an unproven mRNA technology.[1] According to vaccine manufacturers these “vaccines” are in trial phase until 2023. Because of their trial status, they are licensed under a special dispensation known in the US as an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), with a similar arrangement in Canada. From a legal standpoint, no trial phase drug of any kind can be mandated.[2] Normally, clinical trials are conducted in closed, carefully controlled environments, with a placebo group, volunteers who are usually paid to participate, and double-blind trials. The mass rollout into the public of these “vaccines” is unprecedented for any drug in a trial phase.

Anyone offering their arm should know that they are volunteering to be part of the largest medical experiment in human history. The Nuremberg Code requires that medical practitioners obtain fully informed consent from every patient who agrees to accept any experimental medical treatment. That means they must be informed of all known potential adverse reactions to date and must consent to the risk. Further, a physician’s Hippocratic Oath requires that they “first do no harm.” It is a duty for doctors to inform themselves and their patients of the known risks for this or any other treatment. Following this principle, it is also unprecedented for a drug trial with such a high rate of adverse reactions to not be stopped immediately. (See statistics below.)

Worst of all, the risks you take when enrolling in this Covid “vaccine” trial are all your own. If you are injured or disabled as a result of an adverse reaction, your health insurance likely won’t cover you. “Contrary to popular perception,” explains the website Money Control, “existing health insurance policies are unlikely to cover the cost of vaccination and adverse reactions, if any. Only policies designed purely for the Covid-19 vaccination process—there is none at the moment—will cover the costs.”[3] Hospitalization due to adverse reactions to Covid-19 vaccines may be covered, but this will likely vary by country, state and province depending on health insurance policies.[4] In the US, vaccine manufacturers bear zero liability for adverse reactions, leaving the injured to seek compensation in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. This separate court system was established in 1988 in response to high numbers of adverse reactions to the DTP (now DTaP) vaccine.[5] Only a small fraction of cases have made their way into this court and according to the VICP’s own infographic, only 5,403 cases have resulted in settlements between 2006 and 2018. Of the 23,993 petitions filed with the court since its inception in 1988, only 7,948 were offered compensation, totalling $4.3 billion.[6] Lawyer Hunter Shkolnik says vaccine courts and compensation programs amount to a “get out of jail free card” for Big Pharma.[7]

“Americans who suffer adverse reactions to coronavirus vaccines that the US is racing to develop will have a hard time getting compensated for injuries from the drugs,” reports Bloomberg Law. “That’s because pandemic-related claims for vaccines will be routed to a rarely used federal program set up to encourage drugmakers to help combat public health emergencies. It spares pharmaceutical and device makers from costly liability lawsuits in exchange for taxpayers compensating injured patients—though it doesn’t guarantee there’s funding to do so. Since it began in 2009, the program has paid out less than $6 million, and it has yet to receive any dedicated US government funding for Covid-19.” Patient advocates say compensation requests for Covid vaccine injuries should instead go through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Richard Topping, a former Justice Department attorney, predicts that, at very least “this is going to be a big deal,” and at worst, “a crisis.”[8]

In Canada, the federal government established a “pan-Canadian Vaccine Injury Support Program” that was announced—curiously—on the eve of Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine rollouts in December 2020.[9] Despite the government’s dubious claim that “Serious adverse reactions to vaccines are extremely rare. They happen less than one time in a million,” the timing of this program seems highly suspicious. Even with incomplete reporting of adverse reactions to Covid “vaccines,” the one in a million rate is proving a falsehood, especially if one takes into consideration that on average, only 1% of adverse reactions are actually reported. The Canadian government so far has provided no details as to possible compensation for injuries, although the program covers all Health Canada approved “vaccines.”[10] But given the dismal statistics from the comparable US system of compensation, Canadians may be little better off. As the Biblical proverb aptly says, “The sensible man seeks advice from the wise, he drinks it in and increases his knowledge,”[11] and is thus protected from dangerous experimental drugs.

US adverse reaction statistics

As of April 2nd, the total number of reported adverse reactions to Covid “vaccines” (actually an experimental gene therapy) in the U.S. surpassed 50,000, with 2,249 deaths and 7,726 serious injuries between December 14, 2020 and March 26, 2021.[12] Keep in mind that their Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is only voluntary and is thus estimated to only capture 1% of all such adverse events. That suggests these numbers could be low by two orders of magnitude, meaning that American adverse reactions to Covid vaccines could be as high as 5 million, and deaths as high as 224,900. (Admittedly this is speculation given that complete data is unavailable.) Johnson and Johnson claims to report all adverse events while still insisting there’s no relationship between its “vaccine” and subsequent reactions.[13]

Europe’s statistics

“According to the latest figures derived from the European Medicines Agency’s database of Covid-19 vaccine adverse reactions, 162,610 injurious events and 3,964 deaths have now been reported. Among the three major vaccines approved and deployed in Europe, Pfizer-Biontech’s vaccine accounts for over two-thirds of reported injuries and mortalities, or 102,100 and 2,540 events respectively. …AstraZeneca’s adenovirus vaccine is particularly worrisome. It has been less than two months since its administration in the EU commenced; already there have been over 54,000 injuries and 451 deaths registered. Consequently, many European nations, which are more committed to protecting their citizens than increasing pharmaceutical profits, have placed moratoriums on administering AZ’s Covid vaccine. In the UK, over 114,000 adverse reactions from AZ’s product or 4.6 reactions per 1,000 recipients has been reported.”

Authors Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null note that this is disturbing because “the EU has a far more robust and accurate vaccine injury reporting system in place” than the US. (See first paragraph.) “Since December 14, 2020, the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has only reported 44,606 adverse events and 2,050 deaths—a small fraction compared to Europe and where the average European citizen is generally healthier and where far less doses have been administered.”[14] (Note more up-to-date figures quoted above.)

Canadian statistics

Canada’s adverse events reporting system is little better than the American VAERS system. It only reports a total of 3,444 adverse events reported following vaccinations totalling 7.5 million, with 464 considered serious.[15] This smacks of serious under-reporting when compared with the European or even the American figures. Dr. Charles D. Hoffe, a physician in Lytton, BC, stated in an interview that the reporting forms for each patient experiencing an adverse reaction are nine pages long, a considerable investment of time for busy doctors. Thus virtually guarantees a low rate of reporting, since most doctors are paid for patients seen, not for paperwork. As Dr. Hoffe stated in his Open Letter to Bonnie Henry: “I have also noticed that these vaccine induced side effects are going almost entirely unreported by those responsible for the vaccine rollout. …this issue should be addressed too.”[16]

Just in his small community, of 900 people vaccinated, Dr. Hoffe has reported “one person dead, and three people who look as though they will be permanently disabled following their first dose of the Moderna vaccine. The age of those affected ranges from 38 to 82 years of age.” If the rate of adverse reactions in a community of under a thousand people is 1 in 225 as Dr. Hoffe reports, then how is it possible that the Canadian government statistics are providing an accurate record of Covid vaccine safety?

In Part 2 of this article, I provide nine examples out of the thousands so far reported of people injured, disabled or killed by these experimental drugs. Some of this is hard reading. But their stories must not go unreported, and stand as a warning to us all.
