Open Letter to Dr. Bonnie Henry, Adrian Dix, Premier John Horgan and Attorney General David Eby – 3.0 – October 6, 2021Open_Letter_to_Henry_Dix_Horgan_Eby_Oct_6_2021
INTRODUCTION AND CALL TO ACTION
We are a large group of concerned health professionals in the Okanagan Valley, B.C. Our previous letter was sent to you, Dr. Henry, Mr. Dix and Mr. Horgan, on Sept 9th, 20211, and although it has been well received by medical professionals and academics in Canada and around the world, we have yet to receive your reply. Again, we demand that you stop the “vaccine” mandates and other restrictions being forced upon the citizens of British Columbia. Current evidence overwhelmingly demonstrates severe harms caused by both the Covid-19 restrictions and the “vaccines”. The threats and coercion contained in your health orders and press conferences have nothing to do with health or eliminating a virus and everything to do with punishment of non-compliance. This type of behaviour by government and public health officers is not typically witnessed in a democratic society.
We stand against coercing people to accept experimental medical treatment, the threat of daily PCR or rapid antigen testing or suspension/termination of employment. We are pro-science, pro-transparency, pro-choice, pro-informed consent and pro-unity. We respect everyone’s right to bodily autonomy and to choose or refuse medical treatment.
These mandates violate long-honored medical principles of “Do no harm”. It is our view that your health policies have done little to lessen the effects of Covid-19 on our population and have caused much harm and many deaths. They have also created societal division at a time when cooperation and unity is crucial. We have all witnessed and experienced it personally. Across the country, provincial governments are all pushing a similar one-sided narrative and detrimental “health” policies. As health professionals, we are being asked to sign “gag orders” to hide from the public the catastrophic events that we are witnessing in our hospitals and medical clinics. We are being blocked from providing treatment to our clients when safe and effective therapies, such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine, are available. Irrationally, we are being told the only way through this crisis is to vaccinate everyone. The message is clear: support the government’s story or you will be punished. It is profoundly disturbing that our appointed Public Health Officer and our elected government leaders present themselves as the voices of compassion when we only hear dictates that are coercive, divisive, and callous.
We recognize that Covid-19 is an illness that has taken lives, just as the flu and other well-known infections have done. It can cause a small proportion of patients to become very ill. However, Covid-19 has been intentionally marketed to appear far deadlier and more problematic than it really is. Covid-19 can be successfully treated, but the treatments are being withheld. Conservative estimates reveal that 75% of deaths could have been prevented if treated early, even at home, with antivirals and supplements. The recommendation for and excessive use of ventilators has further contributed to an increased death rate. Outcomes, where early treatment was dispensed into the community, provide clear evidence of the benefits of a more pre-emptive approach with well-proven medicines.
The Government of India declared on Oct 4th, 2021 that their most populated state, Uttar Pradesh, is now officially Covid free 2 after widespread use of ivermectin. 3
Dr. Henry, you made a remark in your book “Be Kind, Be Calm, Be Safe”, that you began selling during the peak of the 2020 pandemic, that drew some attention. Tamara Jansen, Member of Parliament for the constituency of Cloverdale-Langley City, highlighted some concerning comments you made on pages 40 and 41 of your book:4
“Just like every other chief medical officer of health across the country, I had a mandate and the legal authority to speak directly to the public about issues related to health. I was fully aware, however, that if I were wildly offside with what the provincial health minister [Adrian Dix] and government [Premier John Horgan, David Eby etc.] believed, it could make my position challenging, and that if I was too far off the mark too often, the government could render me ineffective or fire me altogether.”
Dr. Henry, when you referred to your concerns about the consequences of being “too far off the mark”, were you referring to a government program that conflicted with scientific evidence and the welfare of British Columbians? Did you put your personal and financial interests above the health and well-being of the people you took an oath to serve? Or perhaps you never took that oath.
