Dr. Theresa Tam,
Chief Public Health Officer
RE: Invitation to scientific forum regarding evidence supporting COVID-19 mandates
Dear Dr. Tam,
Please consider this our formal invitation to participate in a forum to openly discuss the evidence and science pertaining to the current declared COVID-19 emergency and mandates. As you are aware, there is a growing number of Canadians - led and inspired by the Freedom Convoy 2022 - who have traveled from across the nation to peacefully assemble in solidarity with the truckers. This movement is a lawful protest that is making its presence known across the country, and has garnered support not only throughout our nation, but also internationally. They are calling upon all Governments of Canada to publicly declare an end to the public health emergency and all COVID-19 mandates provincially and federally. The evidence is clear that there is no health emergency, and the mandates cannot be supported scientifically. Twelve global nations including the UK and the Nordic nations of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden have now either dropped mandates entirely or will in the immediate future. Since the beginning of this declared pandemic, Canadian experts in immunology, virology, epidemiology, evidence-based medicine, academic science, and clinical medicine have been asking to have a public debate regarding the science that has been used by public health to justify the restrictions and mandates. To this end, subject matter experts in COVID-19, medicine, immunology, epidemiology, and virology, including Dr. Byram Bridle, Dr. Paul Alexander, and Dr. Roger Hodkinson are inviting senior Health Administrative representatives of the Federal Government, Dr. Theresa Tam and Dr. Howard Njoo, as well as Dr. Shelley Deeks, the chair of the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), to an open and fair discussion. Specifically, we are requesting that the Health Authorities supply the associated evidence and data that demonstrably justify their case for the public health emergency and the initiation and continuation of mandates. We will be inviting the national media to broadcast the forum and will take all necessary steps to ensure a courteous and respectful discussion between the doctors. We understand this is very short notice, but given the situation and opportunity, we are hopeful you will be able to attend. If unable to attend in person, we would welcome your attendance via web-based conferencing. If this is the case, please supply the necessary details, and the data you will be presenting in your response.
Location: Marriot Hotel Ottawa, York Room Date: Friday, February 11th, 2022 Time: 1 pm EST
Please respond with your intention to participate no later than Thursday by end of business day.
Dr. Byram Bridle, Dr. Paul Alexander & Dr. Roger Hodkinson . . .
