The Covid Information Centipede and Excess Death in Canada

On May 2nd, 2023 that bastion of Canadian truthiness published an article titled Excess deaths in N.S. recently hit peak since start of COVID-19 pandemic. So unusually I will give the CBC due regard for a credible headline. Unfortunately, dear reader, that may be one of the final truths our national nanny tells in the actual piece. But what they do offer us is a very clear window into Canada’s narrative sausage factory. What we find is a very interconnected web of insiders who have created a maze of interlocking corporate partnerships, non profits, non partisan think tanks and pressure groups linked directly to one of Canada’s largest polling firms and the senior civil service and politicians whose interests they serve as a control mechanism. And the best part is dear reader you pay for much of it with your tax dollars. Though this system of government can produce whatever narrative it requires coming out of its expert groups, the polling provides the appearance of public support or outrage as required and then our attentive politicians act based on this web of propaganda and spin.

So in our particular case on excess Deaths: the Nova Scotia Government has been steadfastly silent. First delaying the release of the statistics then refusing to comment on them. The Nova Scotia Government needs cover; CBC is on the way. First we are presented with the assertion, based on nothing but that it is probably Covid, by our first sketchy non profit  COVID-19 Resources Canada and its designated expert Tara Moriarty: 

Covid 19 Resources Canada which received funding from the Liberals is headed by Dr. Moriarty and Dr. Guillaume Bourque. Let’s start with Dr. Bourque Professor in the Department of Human Genetics and the Director of Bioinformatics at the McGill Genome Centre. He is about to get rich from the Liberal Government

Bourque also works with Dr Fauci and the same NIH that is financially interlocked with Wuhan.

The ironically named Professor Moriarty is also a recipient of loads of Canadian tax dollars in her research on Tick borne diseases at the Moriarty Clinic. She even manages to shill for climate change and vaccines while doing it.

We are then bizarrely presented with the idea that opioids are to blame …but not really: “Another possible cause of excess mortality is opioid overdoses. Based on preliminary data, the province believes there were 62 deaths last year from opioid overdoses. That number is not unusually high — there were higher numbers in 2012, 2014 and 2017.”

Now the actual purpose of the entire piece is revealed as we are introduced to Tim Caulfield: 

Tim is a (mis)information expert who is the Canada Research Chair in Health Law and Policy at the University of Alberta and who very sternly assures us that whatever is causing the excess deaths it is not the vaccines

Well thank goodness that’s cleared up. Tim Caulfield has been a Trudeau Foundation Fellow since 2013. He has a Bachelors in science from 1987 but the rest of his training is in Health Law. He got his Doctorate in Law at Dalhousie in 1993 and immediately became the head of Research Director of the Health Law Institute at the University of Alberta. He has been a major voice of Covid authoritarianism for the last 3 years. Tim was strangely prepared for this role by starring in a 2017/ 2018 TV documentary on debunking science conspiracy theories called A User’s Guide to Cheating Death with Timothy Caulfield. The trailer is beyond ironic

Strangely his Wikipedia page notes, “Caulfield has advocated for medical professionals to not exaggerate potential benefits of new unproven treatments in fields that have only long-term potential“. Tim was essentially established as a medical expert for kicking Vagina Candle Ladies’ ass in a trade book, Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?, in 2015, After his TV debut he became a general mouthpiece for everything Woke. From Climate change and Gender theory to White privilege, he’s a go-to guy in Canadian MSM. In the early part of the Covid event he surfaced in a highly funded Liberal information dominance scheme called Science Up First, a fully Liberal funded attempt to suppress any dissent. He was recently rewarded with the Order of Canada.

His role in the article is to lecture any who might wonder about the causes of this strange increase in people dying around them, that it isn’t the vaccines and to even think such a thing could cause someone’s death. To back that incredible claim he cites the very expert sounding Council of Canadian Academies (CCA). They in turn assert in a government funded report that what they term misinformation “cost 2,800 lives and $300 million in hospital expenses over nine months of the pandemic”. The CCA is chaired by Chantal Guay who also happens to be a very highly paid Trudeau appointee:

The CCA is also, as you may have come to suspect, funded with taxpayer money:

Interestingly enough, the CCA in their report cite getting all of their statistics from Abacus Data. Abacus Data CEO Bruce Anderson even wrote an article about the Data set in Macleans and proudly boasted : “Since vaccines against COVID-19 first came into view last fall, our team at Abacus Data has been studying public opinion about getting vaccinated. After more than 30,000 interviews on the subject here’s where we stand; all of our work has been shared as a contribution to a coalition of organizations working together to help promote vaccinations.” Well that sounds unbiased. 

What a tangled web we weave.
