Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to
address you on this very important matter.

I'm a quack, I'm going to briefly outline my credentials
so that you can understand where I'm coming from in
terms of knowledge base in all of this.
I'm a medical specialist in pathology which includes
virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the U.K.
I'm the ex-president of the pathology section of the

professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of
I was the chairman of the Royal College of
Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology
in Ottawa, but more to the point I'm currently the
chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina
selling the COVID-19 test.
And [inaudible] you might say I know a little bit about
all of this.
The bottom line is simply this: There is
utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by
and politicians. It's outrageous.
This is the greatest
hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.
There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain
this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable
people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a
bad flu season.
This is not Ebola. It's not SARS. It's politics playing
medicine and that's a very dangerous game.
There is no action of any kind needed other than what
happened last year when we felt unwell.
We stayed home,
we took chicken noodle soup, we didn't visit granny, and
we decided when we would return to work.
We didn't need
anyone to tell us.
Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for
their effectiveness whatsoever.
Paper masks and fabric
masks are simply virtue-signaling. They're not even worn
effectively most of the time. It's utterly ridiculous.
Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people - I'm not
saying that in a pejorative sense - seeing these people
walking around like lemmings, obeying without any
knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.
Social distancing is also useless because COVID is

And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I'm
in the business of testing for COVID.
I do want to
emphasize that positive test results

It's simply driving
public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless

All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and
to give them all in the nursing homes that are under
your control, give them all 3,000 to 5,000 international
units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to
radically reduce the likelihood of infection.
And I would remind you all that using the province's own
statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province
is one in 300,000. One in 300,000...!
You've got to get a
grip on this.
The scale of the response that you are undertaking with
no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the
consequences of acting in a way that you're proposing.

I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this

Thank you very much.
