[Editor’s Note: After posting the initial article by Dr. Makis last evening the Cariboo Sentinel received word of yet another B.C. Doctor who had recently passed away on January 27th, 2023. I alerted Dr. Makis to the fact and he immediately responded with a second Substack article which is presented here.
The question posed by Dr. Makis is a legitimate one to ask given the behaviour of both the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), the current Leftist (aka commie) NDP government of B.C. and the mainstream media which is basically on life support at this time in world history.
I would highly recommend that readers interested in this phenomenon look up Dr. Makis on Substack and subscribe to his posts and support his vitally important work of keeping an open and honest record of the growing misfeasance being displayed by the medical profession, Canadian governments and the sold-out msm.]
Top Vancouver cardiologist just died suddenly – is information on Canadian doctor sudden deaths being censored on the internet?
A mysterious sudden death…
BY DR. WILLIAM MAKIS, MD
I received an email cautiously asking: “Is he on this list?” (our list of 132 Canadian doctor sudden deaths).
A top Vancouver cardiologist was seeing patients recently. A few days later, one of his patients was informed their cardiologist had just died suddenly.
He is not on our list. I don’t recognize his name. How did we miss this?
Dr.Andrew (Andrzej) Jakubowski died on January 27, 2023. He was 68 years old.
Dr.Jakubowski was the Program Medical Director of the Healthy Heart Program at Richmond Hospital in British Columbia (click here). Other than that, any further information is difficult to come by.
We had heard rumors that funeral homes are being advised to suppress information on sudden deaths, especially when it comes to Canadian doctors. I experienced this first hand with the sudden death of Edmonton Psychiatrist Dr.Michael Marshall.
For weeks, information on Dr.Marshall was impossible to come by. We couldn’t find out how old he was. There was no obituary. For one of the most famous doctors in Edmonton, Alberta, it was almost as if there was a media blackout. He was 45 years old when he died suddenly. A few weeks later, Edmonton Journal speculated about his cause of death:
“he’d recently suffered a head injury, but it’s unclear if that contributed in any way, or if there was another medical issue at play” (click here).
It’s very strange for mainstream media to speculate on the cause of death of a local doctor, but that bizarre media speculation drew attention away from the fact he was fully COVID-19 vaccinated and may have suffered a vaccine related injury and death.
Dr.Jakubowski’s obituary has no photo, no indication he was a doctor, no history of where he went to medical school, or where he worked throughout his distinguished career as a top cardiologist in Vancouver. Nothing (click here).
Anyone searching for information on Canadian doctor sudden deaths would never find him. And perhaps this is intentional.

[Editor’s Note: There are countless stories which the controlled mainstream media will never cover that concern the lives of individuals who, in one way or another, have been adversely affected by the ongoing repercussions arising from the Covid-19 scamdemic of 2020. It’s my intention to cover as many of them as possible on the Cariboo Sentinel site.
Sandra White’s story is likely typical of so many of BC’s registered nurses who were treated with the utmost disrespect by BC’s NDP government back in 2020 then under the leadership of Premier John Horgan. Horgan and his fellow criminal colleagues Dr. Bonnie Henry, British Columbia Provincial Health Officer and Adrian Dix, BC Minister of Health comprised the trinity of tricksters involved in enforcing the mandates prescribed by the commie World Health Organization.
Should anyone with a story to tell that would be appropriate for The Covid Files please contact the editor at email@example.com]
The Sandra White Story
Sandra White RN, BSN
I am a registered nurse in the province of British Columbia still practicing and vaccinated with Johnson and Johnson. I believe what I learned in nurses training that you always give a patient a choice in deciding what treatment they want and provide them with all the information on the risks involved. And I know the old adage of ‘do no harm’ is a mantra most of my colleagues do go by.
As a Registered Nurse I resisted all the vaccines at first because I felt there wasn’t sufficient data and time spent by the pharmaceutical companies to determine whether the immunity was working against the virus or if/what the side effects might be. Did they have any or enough human subjects they tested them on?
As a result, I was terminated like so many of my counter parts but soon broke down and took the J and J vaccine in order to work in my profession again. Because BC only ordered a small supply of J and J and late in the game so far I am okay and have taken time to take Glutathione and N-Acetycystein tabs to counter the effects of the spike protein.
The company I work for did hire me back after I got my J and J vaccine but my partner, who worked as a Wheelchair/Maintenance Technician for Vancouver Coastal Health for over 18 years full time also was terminated because of the mandates. He has had endocarditis and was scared to take the mRNA vaccine because of the myocarditis it could cause.
Even thought Dr. Bonnie Henry stated openly she was going to set up two committees: one to look at any and all medical exemptions for the vaccine and the other for religious reasons, this NEVER came to fruition.
As it happened, my partner, Cory and myself actually had our Johnson and Johnson vaccine booked with the Vancouver Coastal Health travel clinic a few days before the deadline but suddenly the floods came in the Chilliwack, Abbotsford area and there was a land slide in the Agassiz area. My house is in Harrison Mills and we were not allowed to leave the area for almost two weeks until they found alternate routes for people to use only for emergency supplies.
As a result, which was no fault of our own, we missed the mandate deadline and subsequently were terminated of our health care positions. My private health care company did re-hire me back once I was able to travel out to get the vax but the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority never did take this situation in consideration for Cory or me and they let him go.
Cory’s union, after a WHOLE YEAR, finally managed to get him hired back on as casual even though before he was full time but since there are no casual positions available which he could apply for he has had no work since with them yet he is on their books as a casual employee. What a bad joke that is! He only recently got a casual job driving for Handi dart. If I had not been re-hired back by my company we would both be eating out of a dumpster by now.
If the health authorities are so short in staff, which they claim, then why wouldn’t they hire people back to their former positions who got vaccinated late? There are also many well trained, unvaccinated nurses who worked before the mandates. They all used Personal Protective Wear and never got sick with Covid and also would NOT need any orientation who are waiting to return to their jobs but no, the province would rather hire international nurses from out of Canada and adjust the College regulations to help them get started.
So it’s all so easy now to see how much of a scam it all is. I would laugh if it were not so sad.
As for Dr. Hoffe I heard about him some time back. I did email him around the time he was about to meet with Dr. Bonnie Henry and others on some panel they had. [Editor’s Note: The meeting had been arranged by Dr. Bonnie Henry back in April of 2021 after she read Dr. Hoffe’s Open Letter and much to his surprise she contacted Dr. Hoffe informing him that she’d made arrangements for him to speak with a vaccine “specialist”. The results of that meeting were published on the Cariboo Sentinel site on April 16, 2021 and can be read HERE.]
He indicated he was going to present them with concerns he had with his patients who had experienced neurological deficits that appeared to be related to post vaccination. I emailed Dr. Hoffe again about a week later asking how the discussion went and I told Dr. Hoffe if responding to me were to put him at risk because of confidentiality I would understand if he could not reply. He did not reply.
Pfizer has finally come clean to some extent about some side effects their vaccine has caused. The myocarditis for sure is one and the clotting issues appear to be another. Dr. Hoffe, in his online post, has openly stated he is simply, “a country Doctor” and sought out expert opinions from scientific and learned medical professionals before he made any open statements concerning the mRNA vaccines. He simply warned people about the potential side effects and what the spike protein appears to be causing by its nature/structure in the human body. I do not recall him ever stating that no one should take the old-style vaccines. His main concern was with what the BC government was pushing and that was the mRNA vaccines. Not once did I hear Dr. Hoffe tell me or anyone else not to take the Johnson and Johnson vector routine vaccine in order to gain some immunity from the so-called Corona virus.
Dr. Hoffe was simply doing his job as a family physician. All the clients he saw who had voluntarily taken the vaccines (mRNA) came to him looking for answers to why they were experiencing neurological and other deficits and he saw a pattern and a trend and he took the necessary steps to approach Dr. Henry and her team of advisors with his concerns. If he truly were reckless he would not have taken the time to do that.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC is being punitive and ego-centric in their approach which, unfortunately, many nurses still have to put up. We are short of physicians as we are nurses in this province and the college’s ongoing efforts to have this compassionate Doctor convicted and jailed is nothing short of using Orwellian tactics in order to make an example of him and strike fear in the minds of other physicians and healthcare workers. Their actions are simply political and not based on science.
If the College gave a damn about the people of BC they would consider the developments that have arisen since the roll out of the vaccines (the science) and realize that Dr. Hoffe was simply a concerned physician about the benefits and well-being of his patients. The Covid 19 virus will continue to mutate over time and there’s hope herd immunity will take its course. It’s too bad that the College is not spending more time on trying to ban gain of function studies in the world that are being used as bioweapons instead. I feel that we need to just tell the College to ‘get over it’ and leave this man alone so that he can get back to what he does best – be a good country Doctor who cares about his patients.
On Saturday, February 4th, 2023 I received word that the long awaited hearing which the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. had planned for Lytton, B.C. family physician Dr. Charles Hoffe was not going to be cancelled as some earlier reports had intimated. The report that I received indicated that Dr. Hoffe was in serious trouble due to the fact that his lawyer in Toronto was ill and in hospital and Dr. Hoffe wasn’t able to get all his legal ducks in a row before the commencement of the hearing process slated to begin virtually on February 13th.
I went to the college website and read the following notification in the Public notifications section:
“The hearing of the citation issued for Dr. Charles Douglas Hoffe, a family physician practising in or around Lytton and Kamloops, BC, has been scheduled for February 13 to 17, 21 to 24, and 27, 2023. The hearing will proceed virtually, subject to further order of the Discipline Committee.
At the hearing, a panel of the Discipline Committee will inquire into Dr. Hoffe’s alleged misconduct, namely that, he contravened standards imposed under the Health Professions Act, including but not limited to the Canadian Medical Association’s Code of Ethics and Professionalism by publishing statements on social media and other digital platforms that were misleading, incorrect or inflammatory about vaccinations, treatments, and public measures relating to COVID-19.”
After a bit more digging about on the site I found the names of those physicians who make up the Discipline Committee. None of them are board members. I found a contact phone number for 5 of the 6 in case anyone would like to speak to them about your concerns. These are public numbers online so there’s no issue about calling them. They are the following:
Dr. Darlene Michelle Sribniak Hammell Ph: (604)-733-7758
Dr. K.E. Bennett(no contact number found)
Dr. Duncan James Etches Ph: 778-994-4998
Dr. Joseph Harris Finkler Ph: (604) 788-9668
Dr. Robert Andrew Irvine Ph: (604)-806-9075
Dr. Barbara Jeane Kane Ph: 250-564-1152
I started covering Dr. Hoffe’s long and contentious story back on April 11th of 2021 when I first got wind of the fact that he had gone public about the so-called “vaccine” after one of his patients in Lytton, B.C. died and three others were permanently disabled following their first dose of the experimental Moderna Gene Modification ‘Vaccine’.
It wasn’t long before the dark forces behind this global attempt at mass genocide of the world’s population commenced. In a follow up article titled Must Be the Season of Satan: A Defence of Dr. Charles Hoffe on April 16th, 2021 I had the following to say, “As inevitable as the morning sunrise the reaction by mainstream media and its band of brainwashed minions to Dr. Charles Hoffe’s revelations concerning negative effects upon his patients by the experimental mRNA vaccine Moderna, was to commence a campaign of slur and slander against the courageous, Truth-telling Doctor from Lytton, B.C.”
“Once again we are witnessing the venomous, draconian actions of the BC NDP government via their servile minions Dr. Henry and the Interior Health Authority (IHA), in this latest blatant attack upon Dr. Hoffe’s integrity and his very livelihood, not to mention the well being of all the local residents of the town of Lytton, BC where the good doctor has dedicated many years of service to the community.
The unabashed arrogance and power-tripping displayed by these bungling bureaucrats and their political overlords, all of whom are willing participants in what is now recognized universally as being the most virulent attack upon the human race ever witnessed in recorded history, demands that ‘we the people’ expose their actions for what they are and thwarted them in every way possible.
The letter issued by the Lytton Medical Clinic on May 4, 2021, provides a general overview of the maliciousness of the NDP traitors when it comes to their deliberate, crude and cruel reactionary response to anyone, be they a professional medical practitioner or not, who displays the intestinal fortitude to speak Truth to power as was done by Dr. Hoffe in his original open letter to Dr. Henry.”
Back to the Present
Upon hearing that the College was going ahead with their ’Show Trial’ hearing I wrote an email to Dr. Hoffe offering my services once again and letting him know I would do everything in my power to make the general public aware of his plight and get the message out for people to write letters of support and send them to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC via their online complaints section.
This morning I received a reply from Dr. Hoffe in which he covers his present legal situation and which also provides an overview of what we the people can do to help him out.
Thank you for reaching out, and for your desire to help shine a light in this present darkness.
I have just spoken to my lawyer in Toronto. He has recruited the help of a BC lawyer, to assist while he recovers. He states that although it is too late to submit expert witnesses for the trial, it is not too late to submit evidence.
Nevertheless, the College is not following legal protocol, and is acting in a tyrannical manner. They need to be held to account. Hopefully a letter writing campaign, or flood of complaints, may enable them to realise that public opinion is not in their favour. This is the Contact Us page: https://www.cpsbc.ca/contact-us
I believe that my case may be critical, as it will set a legal precedent for the future.
People often ask what they can do to help. This is a real case where every person can make a difference. The College needs to be deluged in complaints and letters against their own misconduct and persecution of ethical and caring doctors. The letters do not need to be complicated or detailed. Simplicity may be more powerful than complexity.
Lastly, the College is unlikely to respond to the letters and complaints, so I would suggest that people should keep resubmitting them every week until they are acknowledged.
Thanks again for your help.
May God be with you,

Instructions on How to Send a Letter to the
College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC
It’s actually quite simple to send the college a letter. Here’s how. First click on this url https://www.cpsbc.ca/contact-us which will take you to the Contact page on the CPSBC website. It will look like the screenshots below.
While it may provide some instant relief by venting aggressively I suggest in this case just tapping it cool and being as forthright as possible without too much ad hominems, etc.
Sample Letter of Support for Dr. Hoffe
“As a concerned citizen of the province of B.C. I am deeply troubled by the College of Physicians and Surgeons’ ongoing persecution of Dr. Charles Hoffe, family physician from Lytton, B.C. I have learned that you are planning to hold a hearing beginning February 13th, 2023 that will run for 10 days. I have been following the plight of Dr. Charles Hoffe ever since he stood up and spoke out for his patients back in the spring of 2021 when one person who took the government mandated ‘vaccine’ died and others were permanently disabled following their first dose of the experimental Moderna Gene Modification ‘Vaccine’. All of the grievances that you display in the Hearing notification for November 21, 2022 for Dr. Charles Douglas Hoffe alleging misconduct are nothing more than pure unmitigated fiction and outright baseless fabrications and lies. The COVID-19 “pandemic” was, and will remain forever, the greatest criminal fallacy ever forced upon the human family and those who instigated it and those complicit in its actualization (which includes the College of Physicians and Surgeons) will eventually be brought to justice and punished to the full. I hope that you will come to your senses and drop all these spurious allegations made against the good Doctor Charles Hoffe. What you need to do immediately is issue a public apology for the way that you have treated Dr. Charles Hoffe and admit that you erred in your duty to your colleagues and to those under your mandate as well as the general public. As it states on your website under the heading ROLL OF THE BOARD: “The Board is responsible for setting strategic direction, developing policies and providing oversight of the College’s performance. Board members are guided by the following principles of good governance.” The first on the list is INTEGRITY meaning the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. As well as Integrity your mandate includes COMMITMENT TO EARNING AND MAINTAINING THE PUBLIC TRUST. “The Board acknowledges its ultimate accountability to the public and commit to continuously earning and maintaining the public trust.” Tragically, for the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC and for all the victims of this massive, fraudulent scam by the NDP government of B.C., you have now lost the public trust and likely will never regain it again. Please – do what you can while you can to make amends for all the deception and hurt and suffering that you have caused the citizens of this beautiful province. A first, and giant step, would be to grant amnesty to Dr. Charles Hoffe and drop all of the bogus charges now pending against him. God grant that you do the right thing.
Signed, Joe/Jane Blow, A concerned citizen.”

I find it quite disturbing at this time in B.C.’s political landscape to find that 37 of B.C.’s mayors will be returning to office because no one ran against them. The following mayors (taken from the Province article above) have all won by acclamation:
“B.C. mayors who won by acclamation this year include: Dennis A Buchanan, Alert Bay; Joe Craner, Armstrong; Barbara H Roden, Ashcroft; Ward Stamer, Barriere; Mike Hurley, Burnaby; Ryan Windsor, Central Saanich; Ruth Hoyte, Coldstream; Nicole B. Minions, Comox; Michelle P. Staples, Duncan; Sarrah A Storey, Fraser Lake; Steve J Morissette, Fruitvale; Linda J McGuire, Granisle; Ken Williams, Highlands; Shane Brienen, Houston; Allen Miller, Invermere; Maureen Pinkney, 100 Mile House; Sylvia Pranger, Kent; Don McCormick, Kimberley; Phil Germuth, Kitimat; Aaron Stone, Ladysmith; Sheri A Disney, Masset; Alan Raine, Mountain Resort Municipality; Tom Zeleznik, Nakusp; Kevin Murdoch, Oak Bay; Martin Johansen, Oliver; Nicole MacDonald, Pitt Meadows; Scott Cabianca, Port Clements; Brad West, Port Coquitlam; Mark Baker, Sayward; Cliff McNeil-Smith, Sidney; Colin Ferguson, Silverton; Christine A Fraser, Spallumcheen; Sean Bujtas, Terrace; Dan B. Law, Tofino; Owen M. Torgerson, Valemount; Ed Coleman, Wells; Julie Colborne, Zeballos.”
My consternation with this stems from the fact that ever since the Covid-19 scandemic of 2020 B.C. and every other province and territory in the country has basically been under the rule of politicians at every level of government who have NEVER stood up to all the draconian, unconstitutional, inhumane mandates and restrictions that were imposed upon their provinces.
Here in the Cariboo we have two locations (Wells and 100 Mile House) where the local citizenry doesn’t appear to be concerned about the loss of freedoms and the horrendous repercussions that have resulted from all the forced vaccinations and the false mask mandates, etc.
Coupled with this disturbing issue is the fact that back in the 2018 civic elections held on October 22nd out of an estimated total of 7, 500 people entitled to vote in the City of Quesnel only 1,909 ballots were cast which, when translated into a percentage, meant that around 74% of voters were too apathetic to get off their butt that day and do their democratic duty for what was still (at the time) QUESNEL – Gold Pan City.
For those voters who’ve endured the slings and arrows of outrageous mismanagement and misfeasance by the previous Mayor and the majority of City Councillors it’s now clearly imperative that action is necessary to challenge the old regime and to light a fire under the 75% of potential voters who let their lines go slack back in 2018.
It’s time for the people to rise up and replace the old guard and elect those who are willing to stand up to all the feigned ‘authority’ that we’ve witnessed over the past 4 years and the best place to begin will be to support former City Councillor Ron Paull in his bid to be Quesnel’s next Mayor.
Responsible Slavery: A Critique of Mayor Bob Simpson’s Scathing Attack Upon Quesnel’s Freedom Rallies
The Cariboo Sentinel
It wasn’t bad enough that Quesnel Mayor Bob Simpson and the bulk of his gang of sycophantic city councillors had the audacity to steal the Gold Pan City sign off the intersection of Hwy 97 and Hwy 26 (Barkerville Hwy) back in 2020. Finding little else to do besides drain the taxpayer’s pocket books with one ridiculous initiative after another now the Mayor has decided to go on full attack against the citizens of Quesnel who are opposed to all the brutal and deadly decisions being implemented by the BC NDP government in response to the greatest scam the world has ever experienced in recorded history – the covertly manufactured Covid-19 deception of 2020.
In Quesnel’s City Council News for September 21, 2021 Mayor Simpson has penned one of his more scathing and deceptive diatribes, aimed at discrediting all the good efforts of intelligent, conscientious people in and around the city who’ve come to fully realize – after over a year and a half of government fear, misinformation, unnecessary lockdowns, mandated mask wearing, social distancing and, of late, forced jabs of untested, rat killing, experimental “vaccinations” now being manipulated in a myriad number of ways by all the political parties in the province and the mainstream in order to reduced everyone to a mental state akin to that of a genetically-modified turnip and thus more easily enslaved to the New World Order’s agenda for planet – that their governments at every level are no longer acting in the best interests of the people. The deluded, myopic and misinformed Mayor titled his attack “Responsible Freedom” when it truth he ought to have called it “IRRESPONSIBLE SLAVERY FOR THE MASSES!”
Of course the erudite-challenged social delinquent who scribbled out this poison-pen proclamation to the proletariats of Quesnel immediately dredged up the usual weaponized terms that every would-be dictator enlists in order to denigrate, disparage, slander and malign whomever they wish to destroy. “Anarchy”, “mob rule”, “might is right” all immediately spring forth from the fickle fingertips of Mayor Simpson in order to set the tone for his first gut shot wherein he states:
“That’s why these so-called ‘freedom rallies’ make no sense, especially in the middle of a global pandemic. The “freedom” that this minority is calling for is the freedom of anarchy: the freedom to make up their own rules independent of science, common sense, and good government.”
Having pronounced judgement on the anarcho “counter-revolutionaries” Quesnel’s Bolshevik Commissar Mayor then employs as much double talk as he can muster in his defence of Canada’s “big business” interests that have dominated this perverse, communist narrative since its inception in 2020 by making the following convoluted comment:
“Yes, good government. The inherent mistrust of “big government” in the sloganeering of these “freedom” groups is dangerous and misleading. I worked behind the iron curtain in Soviet controlled countries during the late 1970s and saw first-hand what an unelected, dictatorial government can do to those who protest against it.”
He then goes on to say, “The irony today is that the anti-vax and anti-passport protesters have nothing to fear from the government they are trying to get us all to be afraid of, because their freedom to protest is protected by law.”
It’s at this juncture in Mayor Simpson’s litany of lies and sophistry that I have to stop and say to Bolshevik Bob, in a vernacular that most people in the Cariboo are very familiar with, “Bullshit!”. Your audacity to try and tell others that the protesters are “protected by law” is as simple-minded, false and absurd as it is to tell Canadians that their right to freedom of speech is also “protected by law”. Nothing could be further from the truth. The msm and all levels of government from the federal down to the provincial, municipal and regional are ALL guilty of carry out a witch-hunt against the normal people and have been doing so ever since they started down their dead-end road to mass inoculation of the whole human race. Incitement comes to mind and we see it every time some lousy, pin-head politician has the chutzpah to attack those who want to retain their God-given rights and sovereignty over their own bodies. And you Mayor Simpson are a prime example of what I’m talking about.
Further to the above fatuous frothings you carry on like a good foot soldier for the Fauci/Gates/WHO/CNC criminal cartel by pouring out more of your puerile, petrol-soaked lies and ongoing fear-mongering and hate-generating vilification, all designed to exacerbate what you’ve already attempted to cover up and deny – the Inquisitional attitude toward the “‘freedom’ protesters” who you claim are, “creating unnecessary confusion and disharmony at a time when we all need to be more trusting of our democratically elected government and its public health officers.” Nothing like a good bonfire to get rid of all those heretical protesters eh Bob?
Having betrayed the local citizens who are attempting to alert a dumbed-down public and judged them as being nothing but uninformed conspiracy theorists you conclude your hit piece with the same old worn-out status quo rhetoric in one last gesture of obeisance to your misinformed masters who you appear willing to collude with.
Follow all the rules and mandates that have proven ineffective and remember to remember:
“That the significant spike in severe cases of COVID currently threatening our health care system and most vulnerable citizens is made up of primarily unvaccinated people should be sufficient evidence that the vaccinations are providing protection against this virus. We just need more people vaccinated.”
Yet another fabricated LIE Bob meant to deceive the public when in truth it’s primarily those who have been taking the jab who are still getting the annual flu (now magically having morphed into Covid-19) and proving itself to be ineffective. But of course we can’t have the general public realize this and so you do your damnedest to convince Quesnel residents to accept that it’s those terrible “anarchist” anti-vaxers and “unvaccinated” people who are responsible for it all and that we should “trust” government and trust the pseudo-science that emanates forth from un-doctors Gates & Fauci and the CDC and the 3-stooges in our own provincial NDP government – Horgan and Henry and Hix.
To conclude, what can one say about Mayor Bob Simpson’s hate-filled rant against the freedom rally folks of Quesnel that hasn’t already been said about Preparation-H? Not much.
P.S. Do go on to the Quesnel.ca website to read the full meal deal of Mayor Simpson’s column and write to him at his email address below to let him know how you feel about it.

A six-pack of Federal Candidates vying for BC’s Cariboo-Prince George Riding gathered in Quesnel’s Legion Hall on the evening of Wednesday, September 8th to stake their claim for the people’s vote in Canada’s upcoming September 20th, 2021 election. It was the strangest all-candidates forum that this reporter has ever covered and it can easily be attributed to the fact that the former world of politics has now been so dramatically transformed by the massive, mind-bending global phenomenon called “Covid-19” that any semblance of the old ways of campaigning have now taken on a surreal appearance that leaves the audience with a lingering sense of being caught up in some sci-fi world akin to Robert Heinlein’s novel, Stranger in a Strange Land.
There was an element of the Titanic to the event wherein the candidates’ chairs took on the appearance of the deck chairs on the ill-fated ship that eventually came to symbolize any human effort fated to fail because the basis for it had been pre-empted by some savage force too shocking and dreadful for the human mind to accept as reality. For the majority of the candidates present on stage, plus the Green Party candidate who appeared via video link, this obvious state of affairs appeared to be missing. It was business as usual.
With all the hullabaloo surrounding masks and forced experimental “vaccines” and lockdowns I was pleasantly surprised to find that upon entering the Legion Hall I wasn’t given the 3rd Degree. I had arrived early because I’d heard on Facebook that the Peoples Party of Canada candidate, Jeremy Gustafson, was coming to town a couple of hours earlier to meet up with friends and supporters and I figured it might be an opportunity to touch base with him before the forum commenced. Upon entering the hall I was greeted by two ladies who were busy setting up chairs and preparing for the event. They were pleasant and friendly and when I told them I was a reporter for the Cariboo Sentinel they appeared pleased and proceeded to set up a media table along the south side of the hall across from the candidates and provided it with bottled drinking water as well.
After some typical delays setting up the electronics and mikes and video for livestreaming the event via Facebook and connecting with George Henderson at MyCaribooNow radio a formal welcome was given to all the candidates by Tim Lofstrom, President of the Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce who were hosting the event.
Following that a Moderator for the chamber, Ruby Derksen, explained to the candidates and the minuscule audience of approximately 20 people present, the protocols for the evening’s entertainment. Each candidate would be given 3 minutes for their introductory speech then all candidates would be given a number of questions (all the same) for them to reply to. Once everyone had completed the question period the event would then culminating with another 3-minute summing up for the candidates.
Years of political activism and publishing in the Alternative News Media gives one a background gestalt from which to judge candidates and after listening to the speeches and responses to the questions from the Moderator it was clear that two candidates stood out from the rest and they did so merely by displaying their earnest concerns about the devastating effect that the Covid-19 plandemic was having on the nation as a whole; how it, more than any other factor, was responsible for Canada now being on a collision-course with economic ruin for small businesses while at the same time dividing and destroying families and using force to prohibit churches from gathering to worship the Creator.
The manner in which the chairs were lined up meant that the candidate for the People’s Party of Canada – Jeremy Gustafson – was the first to speak. Next to him was the current incumbent representative for Cariboo-Prince George, MP Todd Doherty and then the NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon. On Audrey’s left was Henry Thiessen representing the Christian Heritage Party of Canada followed by Garth Frizzell of the Liberal Party of Canada. The final candidate was Leigh Hunsinger-Chang for the Green Party of BC.
The first of the two stand-out candidates in order of the seating arrangement was Jeremy Gustafson for the Peoples Party of Canada.
The second candidate, whose views on the critical issues were in most part in accord with the PPC candidate, was Henry Thiessen of the Christian Heritage Party of Canada (CHP). I should also add that the CHP has been for years now the only federal party that has made freedom of speech a major plank in its platform.
In a sense the above unmentioned factors must have played a part in the choice of questions being posed to the candidates but, as so often happens in today’s society – one saturated with decades of subliminal indoctrination in the gross art of political correctness – the crux of the issue, the mandated Lockdowns and the pending Vaccine Passports weren’t brought to the forefront but lay in the background while side-issues such as mothers’ mental health and child development, the opioid crisis, government assistance for residents and businesses affected by wildfires and the recent msm red-herring Residential School uproar coupled with alleged “missing children” were all laid out on the table for each candidate to address. The COVID-19 ‘epidemic’, better known as the “plandemic” or the “scamdemic” in the Alternative & Social Media, only surfaced in a peripheral manner when candidates were asked what strategies and approach their party planned to implement in order to help small businesses. It’s akin to a federal government election taking place during the period of WW2 in Canada and the candidates then running for election not being asked any questions regarding the war.
The incumbent MP for Cariboo-Prince George, Todd Doherty of the Conservative Party of Canada had the usual, status quo patent responses to all of the questions; ones that he’s been repeating on a regular basis over his past 6 years of tenure as representative for ‘the people’. In his opening remarks during the 3-minute introductory speech Doherty waxed eloquent by stating, “I’m deeply passionate about the concerns of this region.” When I heard those words coming out of his mouth I immediately reflected upon the many Open Letters, LetterOne, LetterTwo, LetterThree, that I had sent to MP Doherty over the past 9 months asking him to address the many critical issues surrounding the government Lockdowns, the attacks upon Christian churches and the pending experimental ‘vaccine’ passports, along with all the other serious problems stemming from these brutal initiatives that fly in the face of our Constitutional Rights and Freedoms only to be met with dead silence on every occasion. So much for Mr. Doherty’s “deeply passionate” concerns for his constituents.
Seated (appropriately) on Doherty’s left was NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon.
From what I could hear of Audrey’s comments (which was very little unfortunately due to the erratic nature of the sound system) and observe from her presentation she was well prepared to respond to the status quo questions that were on the evening’s menu and spoke with confidence and one might even say passion on certain issues. As she spoke I again reflected upon my own past years of personal involvement with the New Democratic Party which spanned my early life from birth until the early 1970’s when I became interested in the new kid on the block – the Green Party – and turned toward it and helped form the first local Green Party chapter in Quesnel back in the early 80’s. My family, going back two generations had been strong supporters of the CCF and then the federal NDP under the longstanding leadership of Tommy Douglas. Our household was basically democratic socialist since the 1930’s.
While I listened to Ms. Mckinnon responding to the questions my mind also turned to the present NDP government here in B.C. and to the current federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, all of whom are hell-bent on jabbing every single soul in the province and country with these untested, experimental injections of toxic substances that are now crippling and killing hundreds of thousands of people around the world. It’s bad enough that these lethal untested shots are killing the elderly and the immune compromised yet Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Dix and Premier Horgan are all for incrementally lowering the age at which the poisoned jabs are administered so that now children are also endangered by this mind-boggling, mass hysteria that’s overtaken both the federal and provincial levels of government across the nation. When Dr. Charles Hoffe, MD, a long standing, well respected family physician from Lytton, B.C. attempted to alert Dr. Henry to the fact that the Moderna jab was killing and disabling his first nation patients the NDP government immediately turned on the good doctor and cut back on his ability to work. Then, to exacerbate the whole thing suddenly Lytton is subjected to a ‘wild fire’ and Dr. Hoffe’s clinic goes up in smoke!
So when I hear the NDP’s Singh telling Canadians, “This is an unprecedented moment for our country. Canadians need a government that has their back….”
and, “We believe the government should immediately take a leadership role in a federal vaccination strategy to ensure all Canadians can [will?] be vaccinated.”
and, “Canada needs to have the capacity to produce vaccines for public health emergences…New Democrats will establish a crown corporation charged with domestic vaccine production so that Canadians are never again at the back of the line.”
plus, “The federal government must also step up and regulate natural health products….”
I shudder, while my immediate thought is yes, the NDP’s Singh wants control of Canada so he can stab the people in the back with these untested so-called ‘vaccines’ under the pretence of there being an actual “pandemic” and in the process kowtow to the same international, communist-created orgs like the U.N. and the WHO and megalomaniacs like Gates and Fauci who are most likely funnelling into Horgan’s back pocket unmentioned amounts of currency for supporting their Machiavellian agenda of global hegemony.
Having such reflections while NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon was doing her best to put the NDP’s platform agenda into a more palatable presentation my heart went out to her while my thoughts turned to Tommy’s dream party and the realization of how it’s now turned into just one more nightmare for Canada’s electorate.
Sitting next to Audrey Mckimmon on her left was Liberal Party of Canada candidate Garth Frizzell. Now of all the candidates running for office here in Cariboo – Prince George I suspect that Garth Frizzell is likely the one who is facing the greatest challenge of them all. To my knowledge the Cariboo has never been that favourable toward federal Liberals and it’s only due to the fact that the Social Credit Party morphed into the provincial Liberal Party some years ago that we have any Liberal governments in the province.
While the candidates were milling about prior to the start of the forum it was Garth who came up to the media table and introduced himself and we engaged in conversation. He told me a bit about his past, how he’d come to Prince George about 20 years ago and has been actively involved in the community for the past 14 years as a member of Prince George city council. He told me that taking on the task of representing the federal Liberals would likely be challenging as it wasn’t like being a city councillor where your political leanings weren’t always hanging off your chest wherever you went and therefor it was much easier to work with the people and businesses and community groups. After our little chat I asked Garth if he minded if I took his photo and he was happy to do so as one can tell from this portrait.
When it came to the questions put to him his responses were, like all the other mainstream parties, status quo with, of course, the Liberal slant to them. A pleasant man and a good speaker like the NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon, one is left to ponder why these younger folks would choose to represent the parties they do. Is it just a reflection of our system itself where the older established parties somehow are still able to attract the younger generations or is it the level of awareness of those who are now immersing themselves in the political process? Choice, one supposes, is the basic principle behind it all. If only that were the case for the people of Canada as well when it comes the mandates and Lockdowns and pending Vaccine Passports which take effect today.
The final candidate, Leigh Hunsinger-Chang for the Green Party of BC, was inaudible for many in the Legion Hall, including myself and so I cannot say how she responded to the questions put to her by the Moderator. Given how the Green Party of BC has colluded now for years with the BC NDP, one can only extrapolate and assume that her peachy replies to the queries didn’t fall too far from the NDP’s tree.
When it finally came to the summing up for each candidate the same two stand-outs addressed the elephant in the living room of Canada. Henry Thiessen made it clear that until we deal with the fundamental issues surrounding the present Covid fear-crisis that little will result from the election. The only one which I was able to capture in full was that of Jeremy Gustafson of the People’s Party of Canada. He was gracious enough to furnish me with his notes and this is what he had to say to the people:
“I’d like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for inviting me as many of my fellow PPC candidates have been excluded from debates. And I’d like to thank my fellow candidates for running. I’m surprised no one is concerned about the loss of our freedoms. You’re all terrified of catching COVID from me because I’m unvaccinated but you’ve had the vaccine and so you should be protected. You were all banging pots and pans at 7:00 pm for the nurses. They were heroes, now they’re going to be fired for refusing the vaccine. I asked them why, they said it’s too new and untested. You know what climate change and COVID have in common? They’re models and models say this might happen or this could happen. Well, it also might not happen or could not happen. And by climate change I mean the theory that anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the primary driver of climate change not the natural process of climate change that’s been going on for billions of years. You don’t even know what people are talking about anymore because they keep changing the definitions of the words. Like herd immunity, when enough of the population gets sick and develops immunity. Remember 18 months ago, “Oh, we can’t do that”. Now herd immunity only comes from vaccines so it’s OK. The government’s job is to make tough decisions, I know COVID is real, that people have died, but not enough to justify the devastating effect of the lockdowns where women are being used as punching bags and suicide, drug addiction, depression are now rampant throughout our society. The PPC is the only party standing up for your freedoms. We will end mandatory vaccinations. We will end federal vaccine passports for travellers and will cut federal funding for provincial lockdowns. If they want to lockdown it’s on their dime. So vote for the PPC, the only party standing up for your freedoms.”
And so it went on the evening of September 8th, 2021.
