[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.
Since going public Dr. Hoffe has been put through the wringer by the NDP government, Dr. Bonnie Henry, the Interior Health Authority, the Mainstream Media across Canada, and, of late, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC for having spoken out about the dangers of what has now become known euphemistically as “the Jab”.
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.
