Society has turned upside down .
 
According to www.nanaimonet.com, here is a government medical authority issuing public statements about the dangers of certain drugs and overdose of them, yet is completely silent about the injuries and deaths from their sponsored and supported free covid vaccines. 
 
They actually have ads on the airways pushing theses vaccines and how safe and effective they are. Yet thousands have died and hundreds of thousands have been injured from use of these vaccines as disclosed by the VAERS system in the USA and the Eudra Vigilance system on the EU. 
 
These are the same people who told us that they would prevent transmission of the virus. Right now most of those in BC hospitals with so called covid are people who have taken these covid vaccines ! Safe and effective alright!
 
And this is all with our money! Our tax money!!
 
And to add insult to ‘injury ‘ these authorities charge $65 to an individual to get an vitamin D test —a vitamin that has proven to impede infectious disease viruses like the present covid virus. Studies have shown reduced hospitalizations from covid those who had adequate levels of vitamin D as opposed to those who had inadequate levels of vitamin D . Here are some studies that give credibility to these statements :
  • A Spanish randomized controlled trial found a 96% reduction in the risk of requiring intensive care in patients receiving high-dose vitamin D (100,000 IU).
  • Another Spanish study with 930 hospitalized patients found a 87% reduction in ICU treatment and a 79% reduction in mortality in patients receiving high-dose vitamin D.
  • A study in a French nursing home found an 89% decrease in mortality in residents who had received high-dose vitamin D either shortly before or during covid-19 disease.
  • A retrospective British study of approximately 1000 hospitalized covid patients found an 80% reduction in mortality with high-dose vitamin D.
  • A large Israeli study found a strong link between vitamin D deficiency and covid-19 severity.’

In the last 40 years our debt has mushroomed 10 fold. 

1981-82 our federal debt was $107 billion; 

2021 our federal debt is more than $1,000,000,000,000. Really it is more than $1.4 trillion.  

We are in the trillions regarding federal debt

How do you like that? Borrowing and someone else is to pay it off. Imagine if you operated your household like that? 

Health care 

2019 — #4.6 million, 16.9% of Canadians were without a family physician – Statistics Canada. 

2021 — Second last out of 11 industrialized countries on health care 

2021— Below the average of these countries on affordability 

2021— Last in terms of performance vs spending

2021– Canada fell out of top ten in the world — now 13 and that does not include the recent violations of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

If you look at the Governance side 

Prime Minister’s Office (include Privy Council Office which reports to PM) employs 1,500 

Prime Minister breaking the law five times and still PM  

No party has introduced legislation to increase penalties on MPs who break the law 

Parliamentary Committees closed down by majority party — SNC Lavalin Scandal

PM guilty of obstruction of justice — Conflict of Interest Commissioner  

Laws introduced that will limit a person’s freedom  

Pandemic 

Numerous violations by Governments of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms  

A Judge hearing a case against the Govt Party for whom she was a candidate  

Accused of mischief can see you in shackles when brought to court 

Independent science ignored and often denigrated  

Doctors and researchers harassed and loosing their jobs from Government agencies  

All of this under the watchful eye of Conservative, Liberal and NDP.  

So why should taxpayers vote for this picture of incompetence, constitution breaking, wild spending, science corrupting, unproductive, law breaking, health destroying, tech failing leadership?

Scanning the 304-page document here is what stood out for me. 

Deficits 
Over the next five years we will not be paying our way. Rather we will rack up another $147 billion in deficits to be added therefore to our Federal debt which is now over a trillion dollars. 

Growth 
For the future period to 2060 Average potential GDP growth per capita of 18 OECD countries like ours , Canada ranks last.

Research and Development
Research and Development Business expenditures as a per cent of GDP in the OECD group of nations Canada ranks 21 out of 37—years 2015–2019 

ICT Hardware and Software and Database Investments Canada ranks 17 out of 29 OECD countries —2015–2019

Government In The Economy Growing, Growing 
In Budget 2021, the federal government announced a range of important programs and initiatives that will help foster economic growth, including:

• $8 billion to transform and decarbonize industry and invest in clean technologies and batteries;

• $4 billion for the Canada Digital Adoption Program, which launched in March 2022 to help businesses move online, boost their e-commerce presence, and digitalize their businesses;

• $1.2 billion to support life sciences and bio-manufacturing in Canada, including investments in clinical trials, bio-medical research, and research infrastructure;

• $1 billion to the Strategic Innovation Fund to support life sciences and bio-manufacturing firms in Canada and develop more resilient supply chains. This builds on investments made throughout the pandemic with manufacturers of vaccines and therapeutics like Sanofi, Medicago, and Moderna;

• $1.9 billion for the National Trade Corridors Fund to make Canada’s transportation infrastructure more efficient and more effective, like twinning parts of the Trans-Canada Highway in Nova Scotia and road and rail improvements at the Port of Vancouver;

• $1.5 billion for regional development agencies to support the country’s economic recovery through programs like the Jobs and Growth Fund and the Canada Community Revitalization Fund;

•$1 billion for the Universal Broadband Fund (UBF), bringing the total available through the UBF to $2.75 billion, to improve high-speed Internet access and support economic development in rural and remote areas of Canada;

•Enhancing the Canada Small Business Financing Program, increasing annual financing to small businesses by an estimated $560 million;

• $1.2 billion to launch the National Quantum Strategy, Pan-Canadian Genomics Strategy, and the next phase of Canada’s Pan-Canadian Artificial Intelligence Strategy to capitalize on emerging technologies of the future;

•$1 billion to revitalize the tourism sector;

• Helping small and medium-sized businesses to invest in new technologies and capital projects by allowing for the immediate expensing of up to $1.5 million of eligible investments beginning in 2021;

• Continuing to work with partners to support the revitalization of East Montreal, including projects that promote innovation, development, and a green and inclusive transition of the area; and

• Cutting tax rates in half for businesses that manufacture zero-emission technologies

And in 2022 
A New Growth Fund of $15 billion

A new Innovation and Investment Agency—$1Billion 

Whew! Get the picture???

This exchange is as a result of my wife and I meeting with our local Member for the Legislature. I had asked in the meeting for an opportunity address the member’s Party caucus to present an overview of the Constitution Act 1982 of Canada that I helped create. This is the reply I received today from the member’s assistant and my reply. 

‘Good morning Brian and Carol, 

I am just following up with you both after your meeting with MLA Walker on February 18th. Adam has discussed with the caucus outreach coordinator the request you have made for a presentation and meeting with a group of MLAs during session. The request has been formally denied based on the inability by you to provide a slide deck to our office for us to pass on to caucus in advance of said meeting. Additionally, the request for a 1 hour meeting has been denied based on the scheduling of session, as the pre-determined times for outreach meetings where MLAs are in attendance have already been filled. 

If you would like me to schedule another meeting with Adam for you, please let me know, as I am happy to do this for you. 

Cheers, 
Claire Stechishin - Constituency Assistant for Adam Walker, MLA Parksville-Qualicum’

‘To: Mr Adam Walker – MLA 

How sad! You cannot even sign your name to a letter to a constituent. 

I remember when I first got elected to a Provincial Legislature and how proud I was to write back to a constituent with my own signature. That the citizen knew I cared enough about his or her issue that I would personally respond and take ownership. And,of course, because I was that person’s elected representative; I was accountable and responsible to my constituent—-he or she paid my salary with their taxes. Your assistant is responsible to you not me. 

When process and red tape becomes the condition on whether a constituent can address your caucus we now know why in my public talks here in your own constituency and on Vancouver Island generally there is such cynicism towards Governments’ ability to confront their issues. You make it impossible for you to hear, to listen, to appreciate, to understand. 

In my particular case I naively thought that you and your caucus would find a process whereby the only living First Minister who helped craft the Constitution Act 1982 would be given some latitude to speak to that Act. This, I thought, would be especially true given this Act contains The Charter of Rights and Freedoms( first time in our history we have a written document to protect the rights and freedoms of all Canadians)  which many contend, including me, has been violated by your Government and by all the Governments of Canada in allegedly mitigating a manufactured emergency. For example, I have actually taken the Federal  Government to court over their particular travel mandate. 

In our meeting your lack of understanding of the Charter was breathtaking. It was as if  I was talking to a by law officer for a Municipality, not an elected Representative of the People to a Provincial Legislature, a position that obligates you to know and understand our Constitution. It was another pothole that had to be addressed.  

Your Government has introduced measures which violate various sections of the Charter including Section 2,6, 7, 15. And no Government has made any attempt to justify their unconstitutional actions. Your Government wrongly believes that they are protected by Section 1 of the Charter but this is a big mistake. Section 1 was not intended to apply to this circumstance. And even if it did, for arguments sake, apply, no Government in Canada, including yours,  has met the four tests of that section —demonstrably justify, with reasonable limits, by law, in a free and democratic society. Nor has any Government addressed the principles underlying the Charter in its preamble: ‘supremacy of God and the rule of law. ‘ 

It was this and many other points that I wanted to discuss with your caucus so that they were aware of the context and the bargain that was  struck in achieving The Constitiution Act of 1982 which involved many other issues like : seventeen months of talks, the Federal Government’s unilateral action half way through the talks that failed in the Supreme Court, indigenous people and their rights, minority language rights, equalization and regional disparity, an amending formula, and non renewable resources.  

 You seemed unaware in our meeting that many people are suffering as a result of your Government’s unconstitutional measures. Your Government has caused people their jobs, families are divided, people have died as a result of delayed surgeries and appointments caused by unnecessary lockdowns, and people have been unable to see loved ones on a timely basis and with compassion. There is even a study out of our own Provincial University, Simon Fraser, by Professor Douglas Allan, demonstrating from 80 studies the harm that has been done. Hundreds of such studies globally validate Dr. Allen’s work. 

Science also opposes many of the things your Government has done, from masks, to PCR tests, to go home and get sicker, to deadly vaccines, all the while undermining the use of adequate levels of vitamin D not to mention the many early treatment protocols that were available and ignored. 

I feel obligated to distribute this exchange widely because the people need to know just how our Provincial  Government works, personified  as it is through you actions in this instance.’

Honourable A. Brian Peckford P.C.
Last Living First Minister Who Helped Craft the Constitution Act 1982 and Chairman, Taking Back Our Freedoms.

Re Brian Peckford's piece on the disaster of Canada's politics, not only are these lackies unfamiliar with Canada's Constitution, they have no idea who you are Brian.
