Two articles caught my attention recently. The first is from the Toronto Sun, dated July 4, 2022. The headline reads: ‘TWO DOSES ARE NO LONGER ENOUGH’: Canadians required to get COVID shot every nine months.
The most important sentence in that article is: The unknown causes of death category only began appearing on the list in 2019 — there is no record of it ranking before then, dating back to 2001.
If you want to jump to the conclusion that the vaccines are the true cause of these unknown causes of death, take note that we do not yet have enough information to know that. For all we know, the highest cause of death in Alberta has always been unknown. They’ve only been keeping track of that category since 2019. If they had been keeping track of that category since 1962, and suddenly it is the new number one cause of death starting in 2021, we would have a good reason to suspect the unknown cause was the vaccines. But we don’t have that data yet. (There is this too.)
When I first started watching this PSA, I thought it was a message against vaccines. The young healthy woman was double-vaxxed, she still caught COVID, and she still ended up in the hospital where she thought she would die. Surely this means the vaccines don’t work, right?
Two decades ago, when I was 4 years old, my parents immigrated to Canada from India in search of greater freedoms, autonomy and economic opportunities. They’re core Canadian values — enshrined in our national anthem, which gloriously heralds “The True North strong and free.”
However, the past two years have seen a near complete erosion of the foundational liberal values that have attracted millions of immigrants like myself to this country.
Under the once-righteous guise of COVID safety and online protections, the Canadian government has taken its power to extreme levels once only imaginable — let alone permissible — in a dissent-stifling authoritarian state.
