    Ontario to deploy military medical personnel claiming 'health system struggling with Covid third wave'

    The federal government is deploying military medical personnel to help Ontario's beleaguered health-care system with a deadly third wave of COVID-19.

    The government said Monday Ottawa has approved a request for assistance from Ontario to provide support to the province as it struggles with high rates of infections.

    In a statement, it said the Canadian Armed Forces are preparing to deploy up to three multi-purpose medical assistance teams of nurses and medical technicians to hospitals and other facilities struggling to keep up with a spike of new infections.

    Such teams were deployed into long-term care facilities in Ontario and Quebec last spring as the first wave of COVID-19 swept across the country.

    Reconnaissance teams are expected to hit the ground on Tuesday to start assessing the specific needs at different health-care facilities as the federal and Ontario government iron out the final details.

    "The Canadian Armed Forces will be there for Ontarians in their time of need alongside our partners," Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said.

    "We are ready, willing and able to help Ontarians through this tough time."

    The government said it is prepared to deploy federal health human resources and fund the redeployment of the Canadian Red Cross to augment or relieve staff within Ontario's medical care facilities.

    It also said the Royal Canadian Air Force personnel will be flying medical personnel from Newfoundland and Labrador to Toronto Tuesday to help in Ontario medical facilities.

    Military aircraft are also being made available to fly medical professionals from other provinces to Ontario to help with the pandemic, with expectations that the first group will arrive on Tuesday from Newfoundland and Labrador.

    Newfoundland Premier Andrew Furey announced on Monday that nine health-care workers are being sent to work in downtown Toronto, including three doctors, a nurse practitioner and five nurses.

    Furey, whose wife Dr. Allison Furey works in pediatric emergency care and is among those heading to Ontario, has said the health-care workers are volunteers drawn from areas of Newfoundland and Labrador where there are adequate staffing levels.

    Monday's announcement followed a formal request from Queen's Park for military and Canadian Red Cross assistance.

    "We have been working with the federal government to identify health human resources located across various federal agencies who might be suitable for deployment to assist with the critical care surge in Ontario," said Stephen Warner, spokesman for Ontario Solicitor General Sylvia Jones, in a statement.

    "At the conclusion of that process, we have made a request for the assistance of those identified resources, many of whom reside, for example, within the Canadian Armed Forces and Canadian Red Cross organizations. In addition to health human resources, we are requesting logistical and operational support as we seek to augment our response to COVID-19."

    On the weekend, Ontario Premier Doug Ford said the province's intensive care capacity "has been stretched to its limits by the U.K. variant" of the virus that causes COVID-19.

    Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic Leblanc first announced last week that the military would fly medical personnel from other provinces and territories to Ontario, and that Ottawa would cover the transportation costs.

    Leblanc said at the time that Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island had indicated a willingness to help Canada's most populous province.

    Ontario reported 3,510 new cases of COVID-19 Monday and 24 more deaths linked to the virus. Of the new cases, 1,015 were in Toronto, 909 in Peel Region, and 391 in York Region.

    The Ministry of Health reported that 2,271 people are in hospital with COVID-19, but noted that more than 10 per cent of hospitals did not submit data over the weekend and that number will likely go up when those reports are received.

    There are 877 people in intensive care because of the virus and 605 on ventilator.

    A total 4,696,211 vaccine doses have been given in the province so far.
    SOTT Comment: Note that countries throughout the West have claimed they have been 'overwhelmed' by the coronavirus, despite hospitals having lower patient admissions than previous years. It has become clear that these facilities were struggling to cope before the coronavirus, and the situation has been made many times [worse] with restrictions removing beds and distancing limiting capacity, as well as staff being forced to self isolate at home for weeks on end because, while healthy, the unreliable testing system recorded them as being positive for coronavirus.

    As for the situation in Ontario, it remains to be seen just why they've felt the need to enlist army resources; although countries calling in the army to help with normally civilian issues has become worryingly frequent since the lockdowns began.

    The call for a military intervention was anticipated by these two when addressing the curious reaction of most, if not all, of the police chiefs across Ontario refusing to follow Doug Ford's orders:

    You can't just rollout a full blown totalitarian regime. You do it progressively, giving people time to adjust to restrictions and the military presence.

    Nightmare! Companies Profit by Quarantining New Hires

    by Kinsey Nordlund
    (henrymakow.com)
    April 27, 2021


    (Not CH)

    After he was hired by Canadian Natural Resources in Northern Alberta, Corey Hagopian was deceived, tested and quarantined in primitive unsanitary conditions, against his will.

    from Facebook

    by Kinsey Nordlund
    (henrymakow.com)

    Imprisoned - blacklisted - unemployable - lines - mind games - terror tactics - lies - nondisclosure agreements - rotten food - submit - signing documents under duress - you don't have a choice - snitches.

    What do these words have in common? A worksite in Northern Alberta.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with a wonderful young man last Sunday.

    Corey Hagopian and his girlfriend sold everything they owned in Ontario for the promise of a better future in Alberta.

    What he encountered at on a job site in Northern Alberta was nothing short of a nightmare. Trained in electronics engineering as a technician with a specialty in non-destructive testing and ultrasonics, he was hired to work at a [oil company] Canadian National Resources (CNQ) site in Northern Alberta.

    He was told he would be working 40 minutes from Edmonton; they failed to mention that was by plane. When Corey found out he would be flying into camp he asked about being Covid tested. He was told no he wouldn't be tested; that they could not force him to be tested.

    He got on the plane and at the other end of the ride, he was told to line up for a test. He managed to avoid being tested then but they came looking for him the next morning demanding he be tested.

    He managed to escape that test to get into the field to work but that evening his trainer insisted he needed to be tested. Corey responded by repeating that he was told he wouldn't be forced to test.

    The trainer said that he couldn't force Corey to test but they could force him off the site if he refused. Corey thought about it and decided that if he was going to be forced to test then he didn't want to work there.

    He was told he couldn't get off the property by bus, car, or plane without being tested. He was trapped. He agreed to the first test; he spoke to the nurses explaining he had a sinus issue and to please be careful. The nurse was anything but careful, the next morning when he bent to tie his shoes his nose began to bleed and proceeded to ooze blood for the next few days.

    Although he was upset and angry about the violation of his person and his personal rights it appeared to be a one-time thing and he could get his months shift in and go home.

    Before the first week was out the one-time test turned to every 72 hours; then every 48 hours, then by the end of the week it was everyday.

    Not agreeing with their protocols, he said once he was paid for the first week he was leaving. That first weeks pay was withheld. He continued to put up with procedures trying to get to the next payday so he could leave.

    On the 11th day in camp being tested everyday, he was told he had a positive result. When he asked to see the results, he was denied.

    He was ordered to pack his things he was being moved to an isolation unit.


    INCENTIVES TO VICTIMIZE PEOPLE

    I shared Corey's story with a friend I know who also worked up north. He told me that Alberta Health Services pays the company for every person in Covid isolation.

    They pad the numbers to increase the amount of money they receive from the government. Remember the government doesn't produce anything to make their income and thus the money they give to these companies comes directly out of taxpayer's pockets. They may only have 50 people isolated but they tell AHS that they have 100 or 200.

    If AHS plans an inspection, a tip off to the inspection results in moving people into the isolation unit, suddenly someone who has no symptoms and negative tests upon arrival are positive.



    The isolation unit Corey was moved into hadn't been cleaned. There was feces on the floor in the bathroom, sneeze droplets dried on the table, the bed had sleep imprints and dirty linen from the previous occupant.

    When Corey complained he was told to clean it himself, there were towels, cleaning product and gloves already waiting for him. Corey continued to demand his right and wanted to leave. He was told that he would need his home isolation plan approved before he could leave.

    Strangers hearing of his plight offered to bring his car to him so he could leave. While he wrote his plan, the strangers got the keys to his car, and started the 10-hour drive to get him. He was lucky he had moved to Alberta, those who work there who are not Alberta residence are not allowed to leave, full stop and forced to endure these conditions.

    AHS approved his plan the next day, but he wasn't notified that it had been approved for another four days. While interned in this makeshift prison, his meals were meager and stale. Much of it was rotten and uneatable. While waiting for his approval, he learned that there were others who were in the same situation.

    He managed to help three young women to escape as well. One of the pair coming with his car, told him to call the RCMP and tell them what was happening. Corey took the advice, spoke with a constable from Ft MacMurray explained the situation, forwarded his AHS plan and that people were coming for him.

    That evening guards and nurses on site called the RCMP reporting that Corey was threatening to pull the fire alarms, telling people he would give them Covid and being disruptive. When the constable called Corey to find out what was going on, Corey was baffled.

    He hadn't left his room; he hadn't threatened anyone with anything beyond his knowledge of his own human rights. The constable was confused, but fortunately believed Corey. When Corey's ride didn't arrive right on time, the guards harassed him, goading him with questions like was he sure someone was coming? Did he know what day it was? Did he know his name?

    Questioned one would be asked if given the Montreal Cognitive Test. While packing on his last day, he heard a woman crying out his window. She was telling the persons on the other end of the phone that she couldn't stay in those conditions, but she couldn't lose her job, she had a mortgage and children to support. Corey found her and they talked. He promised he'd get her out too.

    His whole time in the CNQ camp he was harassed and treated poorly. Those who comply with the rules and all the testing are treated like royalty, those who don't are treated like prisoners. Everyday you are given contact tracing forms or what the employees call 'snitch' forms. You are required to tell on anyone you see cough, sneeze, or blow their nose.

    Anyone who takes more than 15 minutes to eat or had their mask below their nose. You don't need to test positive to find yourself in isolation, you need only be close to someone in your 'bubble' who may have been in contact with someone who may be positive.

    My friend said that even showers are monitored by a guard at the door. If you take more than 15 minutes to undress, shower, dry and redress, you are made to explain why you took so long. He said everything is a line and a time limit. A line up for room assignments, a line up for a test, a line up for meals and lunch preparation. Every second of your day is scheduled. He too was not told before he arrived what to expect.

    I can only assume employees are not told the truth because if they were, they would never agree to go. My friend managed to stick it out a few months before he could no longer take it and quit. He and Corey both told me they were denied access to their test results, new people on site are not told of their rights. Many comply out of fear. Fear of losing their employment and being blacklisted from ever working in the industry again.

    My friend was forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement that will fine him $500,000 if he openly discusses the inhumane treatment they endure. Corey wasn't sure if he signed such a document, but that ship has sailed.

    Sunday at a rally in Calgary Corey spoke in front of a crowd for the first time regarding his experience. After meeting many in the crowd, some who believed him and some who didn't, he was pulled aside by a young woman asking for help. Her partner was in the same circumstance as Corey, and she was scared for his safety. . As we spoke, we counted seven people with remarkably similar experiences. He has met people from all over Alberta who applaud him for his courage to speak out, to not be silenced into submission. I

    If you or someone you know has experience similar treatment in one of these northern camps and would like help either escaping or just to help in solidarity, please contact me at cnordlundkinsey@yahoo.com or Corey at Hagopiancorey@gmail.com.

    Ford announced that they have administered over 5 million doses of the claimed "vaccine" - now let's count the casualties.

    On the side, people are getting more rude and difficult to deal with in normal situations especially observed in work scenarios - where, if you held them accountable to the harassment policies and such other codes of behaviour that they all signed - they would be fired.

    I imagine an imploding of belligerent people in our near future. Crazy.

    Canada's COVID Insanity: Mikhaila Peterson, Viva Frei, Ezra Levant | ROUNDTABLE | Rubin Report

    Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Mikhaila Peterson, Viva Frei, and Rebel News’ Ezra Levant about the extreme authoritarian lockdowns Canada has used to fight the spread of COVID.

    Canada’s extreme COVID travel restrictions, stay at home orders, and awful vaccine rollout stand out among the developed world.

    Anti-lockdown protests are growing in size.

    Canadians are coming to the United States to get the COVID-19 vaccine and avoid many month delays in their home country.

    How did Canada get COVID so wrong?

    Dave talks to his Canadian guests for some insight into what’s happening just north of the United States border.

    I just want to remind people - the media within a country is often found to be telling a story about another country. (For example, they will say that there are an extreme amount of covid cases when it's not true. When they say that about a country that you are not in, you can not see it for yourself.)

    As they restrict travel and delete info off of the internet, it becomes more difficult to verify facts from fiction.

    I have heard that there are many problems in western Canada, and I am in the east. Yes, here they continue with lockdowns but there is still a lot of traffic on the highways in and out of the cities. I have no issue getting groceries at this time - apart from the obvious mask issues. Many other things I have to purchase online, which is a pain in the butt depending on what it is.

    If a person wants to get outside, they can go out. If a person wants to find a job, there are jobs.

    If a person wants to find out what is going on in a country that they are not in, find someone on Avalon or an independent news source.

    The governments are suppose to work for us. Not control us. We need to remind them at every opportunity that we can.

    We need to remind people that they have the power to exercise their rights.

    **Just watching the video posted right above this post. I love Rebel news - they have been doing a great job - however, right now Mr Levant who is representing Rebel News spoke about the travel restrictions that people are facing when returning to Canada. When you return to the country, they are asking that you quarantine for 14 days in their facility (or a hotel?). But, if you stand your ground and decline, the worse thing that will happen is that you receive a ticket. Yes, it is $3000.00, but if you fight it in court it will be thrown out because it is unconstitutional.

    He is stating what the government WANTS to do. Not what they should be doing. They should be working for us, not against us and we have to let them know that or it is our own fault.

    Imagine if 10's of thousands of people did this - the courts would be over-burdened and probably throw them all out and you wouldn't even have to show up.

    They hunted him down like he’s a terrorist.

    Police cars swarmed him as he drove home from his church. They ordered him out of his car and made him kneel down on a busy highway.

    Heavily-armed SWAT police arrested him. But he’s not a terrorist. He’s Artur Pawlowski, a Christian pastor. And he’s now in jail.

    Wow - look at the title! SWAT Team arrests a Canadian pastor.

    This is the media trying to scare people - plain and simple.

    I see 3 police officers.

    2 years ago I had a SWAT team come to my house at 2am. They looked very different than these guys, I can tell you that!

    I was living in a rented house and they were looking for the previous tenant. When I faced them and asked them what they were doing at my home at 2am they said they were looking for (a name I can't remember) and I said, well he doesn't live here - your intel is pretty bad. They apologized and left without even asking to see my I.D. I expected that they had reviewed a picture of the guy they were looking for. (I was awake working luckily or my kids would have had a terrible scare.)

    How this went down - My dog barked at something out the front window. We were in a rural area so I was always wary of coyotes, skunks, etc. I looked out and saw some shadowed figures walking on the lawn coming toward the house. I could tell they were official by the way they were behaving, moving and their clothing. So I went to the front door anticipating a knock, but I could see a figure trying to look into the window that is beside the front door. So I turned on the light and opened the door. They were surprised by my nature of not being afraid of them and I said, "What are you doing? You scared the heck out of me!" The look on their faces was bewilderment - I think at that point they knew they were in error and had no idea who I was.

    Anyways, I am off topic, but I felt the need to explain this story.

    My point is again - the media and the government are trying to make us comply. They need our permission and we need to stop giving it to them.

    You're lucky they weren't executing a no-knock warrant.

    The lockdown in Ontario Canada gets extended again. Government keeps pushing it out further.

    How long you ask? 2 weeks longer....what difference will that make?....It will make some people that have resisted taking the vaccine to maybe change their mind - that's what I think.

    I'm in Ontario too and yes, its p@##ing me off too with the never-ending lockdown but its making me double-down even further and I feel that most of the people not taking the jab will stick to their guns - especially as more info comes out.

    My husband has had the first Pfizer shot and I've shown him the recorded stats for injury and death and it makes no difference. He'll be going ahead with the second. That's his choice.

    Sadly, it seems even the words 'immune system' brands us as conspiracy theorists! Once a term taken seriously, has now become derided as old wives tale, woo woo with 'no real science' vs 'the groundbreaking technology jab'!

    I remember when it was only a tiny handful of folk at the early rallies in Toronto and now look!!! They are growing by the week!

    Yes, I am hearing and seeing that more people across Canada are starting to make more noise!

    Something just came to my mind....there must be something new at play here.

    Being Canadian, we know how tolerant Canadians have been more than most other people. We have always watched the U.S. population get into arguments with their friends and family over politics. Even to the point where families would break up and no longer talk to each other. As Canadians, this didn't make sense to us. Even with our politics, if someone voted for a different party, we might make a joke, but rarely would it evolve to a serious conflict that would end relationships.

    But with the vaccine talk, people are really taking sides. I have never seen Canadians fight amongst themselves so much over an issue. There is something new being used. Or something that we are familiar with being used in a new way. Whatever it is, it has changed the way governments are able to manipulate people.
