Deanna McLeod

Deanna McLeod spoke on Covid “vaccines” for children. She outlined her background. (This presentation was also based on slides, and the information was thus presented very quickly.) She is attuned to how Big Pharma markets products for their benefits alone, and skew away from the harms. There are three basic questions to be asked—see the slide—and if the answer is “no” to any of them, one does not use that product. The current Covid “vaccines” are not like traditional vaccines at all. Pharmaceutical companies were crafty in calling this genetic material “vaccines,” they thus misled the public, and created a bias in how people approach the data. Big Pharma and the government spent millions ($50 million on the part of the Canadian government), on a pre-marketing campaign, setting the stage also for identifying opposing questions as “misinformation”. There is no need to treat asymptomatic children, she pointed out. Most US children are already immune, so there is no basis for “treatment”. McLeod also argued, based on evidence presented, that the “vaccines” simply do not work to any significant extent—there is no large benefit. The principle of minimal intervention is being ignored; the burden of care is placed on a wide group. The trials show more cases of infection happening among those children who got the shots. “Safety” is being manipulated; instead what we have is “declared safety,” in the absence of rigorous long-term testing. (She is compelled to bring her presentation to a close, due to time limits.)

There was no time for questions. She did mention that much of the funding for her company’s research in fact comes from pharmaceutical companies themselves.

Keren Epstein Gilboa

Dr. Keren Epstein Gilboa has a PhD in developmental psychology with related research, publications, academic teaching and past clinical practice. The aim of the testimony was to provide insight into children’s social and emotional experiences for the past 2.5 years by comparing precepts of child development established prior to the 2020-2022 crisis to conditions that children endured due to the officially instated measures. She emphasized infancy and early childhood due to rapid brain growth during the first 45 months of life and the impact of this period on continued development. 

Gail Davidson

Gail Davidson addressed Canada’s commitments under international human rights law. Covid mandates restricted many rights, including freedom from arbitrary detention, torture, and rights to education, work, and freedom of choice, and rights to dissent and to engage in free speech. Canada is bound by its commitments to numerous human rights charters and treaties, those at the core of the United Nations. The Supreme Court of Canada has already ruled that Canadian law must provide at least as much protection as that provided by international human rights law and jurisprudence. Rights that can never be legally restricted or suspended, are freedom from non-consensual medical experimentation or treatment, and freedom from torture. Any law that mandates injections without informed consent is unlawful. Consent must be provided voluntarily, must be informed (there must be discussion about risks, and alternatives), and the principle for respect for autonomy underpins the right to informed consent. Propaganda, lack of information, and severe punishments for failure to submit to injection or to promote the pharmaceutical products, all worked to violate informed consent. Freedom of movement and assembly were also restricted. Canada’s emergency measures were unlawful, she concluded.

(The material present is available in a paper which she published via the CCCA).

In response to questions from the panel, on why would Canada hold itself to account to international law if it does not hold itself accountable to Canadian laws, she nonetheless advises Canadians to submit complaints to UN committees on human rights, torture, and to a variety of special rapporteurs who monitor freedom of expression, movement, assembly, and so on. Each body will note the violation, and make a recommendation to Canada—and they can be embarrassing because they get international attention. Attempts by Gail Davidson to inform provincial and federal governments about their duties under international law and treaties, received no reply, not even an automated one.

Max Daigle

Max Daigle, president of CAERS, nearly died from the H1N1 vaccination, and is still suffering from it. He has built an adverse event monitoring system, for Canadians to voluntarily self-report. He explained the meaning of Vanessa’s Law (The “Protecting Canadians from Unsafe Drugs Act” [Vanessa’s Law] amends the Food and Drugs Act. It includes new rules that strengthen the regulation of therapeutic products, and improves the reporting of adverse reactions by healthcare institutions. As well, these measures are intended to improve Health Canada’s ability to collect post-market safety information, and take appropriate action when a serious health risk is identified. The law is named after Vanessa Young, daughter of the Member of Parliament from Oakville.) He resents how injured Canadians have been marginalized and stigmatized.

CAERS has so far accumulated about a thousand reports, and the initiative is entirely run by volunteers. They lack resources to disseminate the existence of CAERS to people who might want to report, but do not know how. For now, he estimates, the reports they have are a mere tip of the iceberg. CAERS was launched nationally after December of 2021. Given the restricted resources, they have not yet been able to perform any meaningful statistical analysis of the data they have. When they receive the reports, they have no means of submitting them to Health Canada or any other governmental, regulatory body. He doubts whether a government, focused on divisive communication, would be receptive to these reports. No government agency has called CAERS out of an interest for the impacts on Canadians of products that have an accelerated/truncated path of development.

Those who have used the system have been very grateful to have someone who listens to them and cares about their situation. It is a challenge for the volunteers, who are all healthcare practitioners, and some have left because the stories have proven to be too much for them to bear.
