[Editor’s Note: This bullshit by the NDP government and their Ministry of Fire Starters is looking more like a bloody holocaust every day than a “controlled burn”. It simply boggles the mind hearing about the asinine behaviour of the the fire crews and their government Overlords. The people affected MUST take control of the situation and let the supposed “authorities” know that their actions are absolutely criminal and that the citizens affected won’t stand for it any longer. Please share this latest video and write to the dimwitted Ministry of Forests and give them something to think about!]
[Editor: I just received an email from one of the local residents who has a place close to Celiste. She sent an email she received from the local Regional District representative outlining the situation on the ground.]
“Sometimes takes a day to get an answer or for CSRD to figure out a plan. Medications: There have been challenges for the people stuck, yes stuck, in Magna Bay to Seymour Arm. Getting out of there, a non-evacuation zone, means coming to Ross Creek Store and waiting for three or four more cars who want to leave. Then they get an escort through to Squilax, to make sure they’re safe (and to make sure they don’t drop off any supplies to anyone in the evacuation zone). Anyway, medications – So, pick a pharmacy in Chase or Salmon Arm, call them to get the meds set up, tell them the CSRD is authorized to pic them up. Call the EOC at 250-833-3350 and tell them where they are and ask where they will be delivered. They will be delivered to Anglemont or Ross Creek Store.
Had a friend take videos of a trip to Anglemont so I could get a handle on how things are going in the Evacuation Order Zone. And things are looking better. That glorious rain last night cooled things down it seems. There are definitely hot spots, along the roads, in the trees (which you can see through very easily now). I did not see any live flames on that video. Ross Rathbone sent me some pics, and a location pin of some fire in a steep area of Onyx Creek and I sent it along to BC Wildfire who passed it on to their operations group. I don’t think it got acted on because they had 3 or 4 helicopters working on the Sorrento fire for most of the day.
It’s 5:30pm now and they’re still going at it.So, in talking to my community contacts, it seems things are settling down a bit. The 6 hours of rain we had last night sure helped lift spirits even if it didn’t do enough to the fire. Most activity has moved from stomping out fires to building fire guards. BCWS has been working with us in a few places but we know the fire in Sorrento is moving faster towards civilization than the fire in the NS is right now.
And speaking of civilization I haven’t gone into this in great detail but in a conversation, I just had with one of my fellow CSRD directors, she wasn’t aware of the level of lockdown that we are living under. So I’m wondering if my fantasy stories maybe didn’t quite get the message across.
We are living in a Police State.
From the #1 highway you are stopped and have to show a pass, or know the password, or the secret handshake. Then driving to Magna Bay you are stopped at the Scotch Creek bridge where you need the magic key. At Ross Creek you are stopped once more where you need to perform a leprechaun dance to get through. Coming back you need the same skills, except in the reverse order. Everyday day they change things. I heard a story where the guy had to do the leprechaun dance on his hands, but I think that’s just a rumour.
So all of this to make sure that a hot dog or full water bottle, or a jerry can of gas, or a generator, or water pump (hope we don’t have to fight any fires), doesn’t get dropped off in the big EZ (eviction zone).
The specific words texted to me are “The (Emergency Operations Centre) will not be authorizing supplies or permits to support the people who ignored the evacuation order”.
Pretty simple, straight forward.It is astounding to me the number of people who have phoned, texted, emailed (although I have been very bad responding to the emails) with offers of help, or want to come help fight fires. You can’t imagine what it means to me/us the level of support.
And for those who are wondering whether I’ll ever get back to my fantasy story, well the few hours of sleep I am getting are devoted to various chapters in a Tolkienesque novelette that I’ll be working on once we get through this mess. I just don’t have the brain power to devote to it right now.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: One of British Columbia’s foremost medical sentinels, Dr. Charles Hoffe, MD, a man of great courage, dedication and integrity, has been in the trenches on the front line of the Covid-19 disinformation war since April of 2021 when he first alerted the general public to the dangers of the vaccine the NDP government of John Hogan had mandated for Health Care Workers and the citizens of the province.
As the good doctor waits to hear whether the planned hearing by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. will go ahead he continues to speak out on public forums and rallies and video interviews informing the public about B.C.’s Health Care System. The following article deals specifically with the draconian legislation contained in the current NDP government’s Bill 36. It’s information that every citizen of the province and the nation should be cognizant of if they’re concerned about the future of their own health and the health of coming generations.
I would ask that readers do their very best to help spread the message Dr. Hoffe presents in his article to their friends, family, politicians and every social media platform they can access. He needs our support more than ever now and one thing is certain – he deserves it!]
Bill 36: Destroying Healthcare in BC. Another triumph for medical tyranny, And another nail in the coffin of healthcare in British Columbia.
By Charles Hoffe, MD
One year ago, the truckers drove to Ottawa with the historic Freedom Convoy. They were protesting against the tyrannical, unethical and illogical public health legislation. Unvaxxed truckers were being forced to quarantine for 14 days whenever they crossed the US border.
These were the grievances of the truckers:
Mandating a vaccine that does not stop the spread of the disease is completely illogical. If the shots don’t stop you getting Covid, and they don’t stop you spreading Covid, then they cannot possibly keep anyone else safe. So the mandates were completely senseless.
Restricting travel to stop the spread of the virus that was already on both sides of the border was completely senseless.
Forcing people to have a medical treatment that they did not want, is illegal in Canada. (Supreme court decision 1980)
So clearly, the vaxx mandates are not based on either science, logic or truth. They are simply just about tyrannical control.
The truckers went to Ottawa to protest against this tyranny, the massive government over-reach and these violations of our constitutional rights.
And the response of the Trudeau government was not to engage in dialogue as one would expect in any democratic society. But instead they responded with violence and force. The response to the protest against government tyranny and massive government over-reach, was even more tyranny and massive government over-reach.
The response of the government completely validated the entire freedom protest by demonstrating to all the world exactly what the protesters were complaining about.
During the course of the last year there have been numerous medical tyranny protests, three of which have been outside the offices of the College of Physicians and Surgeons. I and other doctors pleaded with the public health authorities to return to the ethical practice of medicine.
• It is never acceptable for anybody to be forced to have a medical treatment that they do not want.
• It is never acceptable to conceal evidence of harm from a medical treatment.
• It is never acceptable to withhold medical treatment from people with a life-threatening infectious disease as they have done with Covid by blocking the prescription of ivermectin.
The mandate of public health, is to protect the public. And the mandate of the College of Physicians and Surgeons is to protect the public from the unethical and illegal practice of medicine. Every doctor in Canada is held accountable to the Code of Ethics of the Canadian Medical Association. Yet, our public health doctors across the country have violated it, their own code of ethics, and threatened retribution upon any who disagreed.
So, just as the Trudeau government responded to the protest against tyranny, with even more tyranny, exactly the same has happened in British Columbia. Bill 36 is, to the doctors of BC, what Trudeau’s commissars were to the freedom protesters in Ottawa. Another tyrannical act to crush dissent.
The response of our medical leaders to our protests against medical tyranny was even more medical tyranny. Bill 36 demonstrates exactly what we have been protesting about. We have a crisis of moral integrity in the leadership of this country.
And we have a crisis of healthcare in British Columbia because our public health leaders chose to fire 2500 healthcare workers in BC who refused to get the ineffective vaccine. Firing healthcare workers in a pandemic is beyond stupidity. And firing them for refusing to take a medical treatment that cannot keep anybody safe is even more stupid.
How can firing healthcare workers in a pandemic possibly align with their mandate to provide healthcare?
There are one million people in British Columbia who have no family doctor. I constantly have new requests to take on more patients. People are desperate. Rural emergency rooms across the province are recurrently closed due to the lack of doctors, and surgical wait lists grow ever longer. Meanwhile, vax-free doctors are not allowed to work in the hospitals under these absurd and illogical public health policies.
So, this seems to be a planned demolition of healthcare in BC. This is a fabricated crisis.
Bill 36 is yet another nail in the coffin of healthcare in British Columbia and the response to our protests against medical tyranny was only more of the same tyranny. In truth Bill 36 is medical tyranny on steroids!
Just to give you a quick glimpse of the absurd violations of medical ethics and our constitutional rights these are the high points of Bill 36:
Bill 36 gives the medical colleges the right to mandate any vaccine, at any time, as a licensing requirement in BC. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1980 that informed consent is required by law. So forced injections are never legal. Yet the college now has the legal mandate from Bill 36 to forcibly inject any healthcare practitioner against their will as a licensing requirement.
So for the benefit of our medical leaders who do not understand either the law, nor medical ethics, I wish to say the following:
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms begins with the sentence: “Whereas, Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law;”
For those who do not understand the supremacy of God, let me say this: Your body, just like every other created thing in the universe, was created by Almighty God. God gave your body to you to possess for the duration of your life on Earth. Therefore, your body belongs to you. It does not belong to the government. It does not belong to your employer. It does not belong to the College of Physicians and Surgeons, or anyone else.
Your body belongs to you, and no one else has the right to do anything to your body that you do not want. Forced injections are a violation and a desecration of your personhood. I have met so many people who are victims of forced vaccination who went to their vaccine appointment with trembling and tears knowing that they were being violated and desecrated. They were being forced to receive an experimental gene therapy injection that they did not want, they did not trust, and they did not need. They felt like they were being raped.
When the government demands to inject things into you that you do not want they are claiming jurisdiction over your own body. Forced injections are tantamount to rape. They are a violation of your God ordained personhood and your human rights. The code of ethics of the Canadian medical Association enshrines the principle of patient bodily autonomy. Bill 36 violates of this code of ethics. And the fact that our public health authorities do not understand this foundational principle of medical ethics is deeply concerning.
When you have to submit to forced injections to be able to work, you are no longer your own person, you have been bought with a price. You have been bought for the price of your paycheque or your freedom. You are a slave. And your slave master will control what you can do, where you can go and for how long. And if, at any time, you rebel against your slave master your ability to work or travel will be revoked. That is why you are a slave.
Bill 36 threatens any healthcare practitioner who they consider to be guilty of the crime of “misinformation” with a $200,000 fine and/or six months in jail. This is a violation of our constitutional right to freedom of speech but worse than that it shows a profound misinterpretation and revisionism of the very nature of science itself. Just as freedom of speech is the bedrock of democracy, scientific debate is the lifeblood of science. The facts of science and medicine are never settled.
Science and medicine are always a work in progress. Without scientific debate science cannot progress. The “facts” are always evolving. Anyone who has the most basic understanding of science, will know that the concept of scientific misinformation is an oxymoron.
Back in the 16th century the mathematician and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543) proposed that the sun was stationary in the centre of the universe and that the earth revolved around it.
Later, in the same century, a brilliant scientist called Galileo (1564-1624) also supported Copernicus’s theory. His views, of course, deviated from the accepted views of the scientific community. This was considered to be dangerous misinformation. He wasn’t given a $200,000 fine but was put under investigation, given a gag order and placed under house arrest in order to protect the public from this “dangerous misinformation”.
Science and medicine are always a work in progress. The concept of scientific misinformation, is an oxymoron, simply because we cannot know what we do not know. The absolutes of science are provisional at best for this very reason.
So when Bill 36 threatens doctors with jail time and crushing fines for daring to disagree with an unscientific and illogical public health policy this is tantamount to a denial of reason itself and constitutes what would best be described as a totalitarian, dictatorial reaction to medical common sense. It is not about health; it is not about science; and it is not about safety. It’s all about government control over every aspect of a person’s medical well being and that is why it boils down to nothing else but medical tyranny.
Pasteur was ridiculed for years, for his theory that germs cause disease. And Semmelweiss was treated like an outcast for trying to persuade surgeons to wash their hands and sterilize their instruments. These doctors were considered to be spreading misinformation, and were punished for it. History repeats itself.
Our Public health policy is going from bad to worse and that is why we are now in a healthcare crisis; one that has arisen from extremely misguided healthcare policy.
Informed consent and the concept of patient bodily autonomy is the bedrock of medical ethics and yet those ethical healthcare professionals who hold to these principles have been fired from their jobs for refusing the jab, thus creating a health-care crisis that has put the public at risk.
So what are BC’s health authorities planning to do about this dire situation? Are they sitting down with the anti-vax medical practitioners to work out an amiable solution to the issue? No, they certainly are not. Instead the health authorities are trying to attract foreign healthcare workers to fill the void.
But what healthcare worker in their right mind would ever move to BC with the knowledge that they have to relinquish autonomy over their own body to the state and be injected with whatever the state chooses, as a condition of employment?
And what healthcare worker in their right mind would move to BC with the threat of jail time and/or a $200,000 fine for saying anything with which the government disagrees?
Furthermore, Bill 36 is driving even more BC doctors into retirement as they are simply unwilling to work under this draconian legislation. This is the last straw.
So, Bill 36 is the final nail in the coffin of BC healthcare and the ethical practice of medicine in BC. It is also another nail in the coffin of our democratic society where freedom of speech and scientific debate are now no longer tolerated in the medical community.
Bill 36 detrimentally impacts every patient and every healthcare professional in BC who are all victims of this misguided, unethical and illegal legislation.
It is time that a public health policy was drafted by people who understand democracy, the scientific process and most important of all, medical ethics. We have a crisis of moral integrity in our leadership and the people of Canada deserve better.
British Columbia to decriminalise hard drugs to ‘end stigma’ amidst unsolvable addiction crisis
January 30, 2023 by Save Britain
Canada will temporarily decriminalise the possession of certain illegal drugs such as cocaine, MDMA, and opioids for personal use in British Columbia (B.C.) to help combat the province’s burgeoning drug abuse problem effective on January 31, 2023.
The exemption, which is a first in Canada, is intended to reduce the stigma associated with substance use and make it easier for people to seek help from law enforcement and other authorities.
The provision will be in effect from January 31, 2023 to January 31, 2026, and instead of punishing those found in possession of small amounts of exempt drugs, police will provide information on available health and social supports.
Broken behind the beauty
Canadians are proud of their country’s beauty and the generosity of their people. And, as you drive past rows of gleaming glass towers framed by the snow-capped Rockies and the Pacific waters of the Burrard Inlet, Vancouver is undeniably stunning — widely regarded as one of the world’s most ‘desirable’ cities to live in.
However, driving down the “drug city” dispels all such optimism.
Tents line the entrances to every building that hasn’t bribed them to leave or pleaded for police intervention. The goods they stole to satisfy their drug cravings litter the street, waiting for someone to buy them.
Addicts huddle in doorways, openly injecting, cooking, and smoking hard drugs like heroin, crack cocaine, crystal meth, and fentanyl — a lethal synthetic opioid 50 times stronger than heroin that has killed hundreds of thousands in North America. Others lie motionless on the ground, even in the rain, or stagger around in search of their next fix.
The crisis is about to worsen as a result of Canada’s ruling class’s disastrously misguided, woke politics.
Drug decriminalisation – is it the best decision?
Canada, which announced plans last year to put warning labels on fatty or salty foods as well as ‘poison in every puff’ warnings on cigarette packets, is more than happy to stigmatise drinkers, smokers, and obese people in the name of improving their health.
British Columbia, particularly Vancouver, has become a haven for liberal Canadians, who have elected a provincial government that believes society is too harsh on addicts.
They insist that decriminalisation will end the “shame” of drug use.
Anyone will be able to inject, smoke, snort, or swallow whatever they want, whenever they want — even if they want to sit on the swings next to children in a playground. And the police will have no authority to stop them as long as they have no more than 2.5 grammes of a drug in their possession.
Between 2016 and 2021, over 26,000 people died in Canada as a result of opioid-related overdoses. Overdose deaths have killed over 9,400 people in British Columbia since the province declared a public health emergency in 2016.
“Substance use is a public health issue, not a criminal issue,” said Sheila Malcolmson, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions in British Columbia, adding that the exemption will help the province combat the crisis.
