National Citizens Inquiry roars into Saskatoon

The National Citizens Inquiry into the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic continued in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The initiative which is being run by everyday Canadians, examines the impact of the government lockdowns, the virus and the COVID-19 vaccines. Testimonies are being heard from many in the health care sector along with legal experts.

Dr. Maria Gutschi is an Academic Pharmacist and Researcher who has completed reports for the Canadian Pharmacists Association. She was asked about the quality of the COVID-19 vaccines including a story reported by Reuters in 2021 about a slip up with the Moderna vaccine.

“A bunch of doses were sent to Japan, and they had stainless steel particles you could see with your eye in them, and they should never have left the factory floor. It seems to me, and this is just my impression, that the batch standards were lowered so that basically anything that came out of the factory was acceptable, so that there would be very few batches that would be turned away. That’s the way it looked like to me that any batch was going to be accepted.”

Dr. Francis Christian has been a surgeon for 25 years and was the clinical professor of surgery at the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Christian says he is disappointed at the way the government pushed the COVID-19 vaccines onto children and when he spoke out he was fired.

“In the spring of 2021, the government rolled out the COVID injection to our children, and that was being done in what I would call warp speed. And I decided that I couldn’t stay silent anymore because children don’t have voices and we have to be their voice. So I had a press conference in which I asked for something which shouldn’t really be controversial, and that is informed consent. I pointed out what informed consent in the COVID era looks like and what informed consent for the injection should look like. And I had this press conference which was actually well attended by the local press. And one week later, I was called into a meeting and fired from my contract.”

The National Citizens Inquiry wraps up in Saskatoon tomorrow before making its way to Red Deer April 26th through the 28th. It will then head to Vancouver, Quebec City and Ottawa next month.
