I think everyone should be aware of this important information about the human rights record of WHO’s Director-General as a member of the government of Ethiopia, and also of the vaccine damage record of the Gates Foundation, who for example, caused paralysis in almost 500,000 children in India. I have included other arguments at the bottom. In light of these facts, I would like you to reflect on the nature of those who are globally leading the current policies, their lack of credibility, and the possible consequences of those policies for ordinary Canadians.
The following facts relate to the credibility of and the global human rights implications of the COVID-19 policies advocated by the World Health Organization, governments, corporations and media.
The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, was Ethiopia‘s Minister of Health (2005-2012) and Minister of Foreign Affairs (2012-2016) https://www.who.int/dg/biography
According to reports:
In 2007, Ethiopia refused to acknowledge a fatal cholera epidemic that infected many people: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/feb/22/ethiopia
Development aid has been used for political oppression:
Indigenous communities have been forcibly evicted to make way for large-scale land-grabs:
There are consistent allegations of torture used against political prisoners.
The Amhara Professionals Union and others have accused the WHO Director General, and the government and political party he belonged to, of targeting the Amhara people for depopulation using various methods (relating to nutrition and health care)—including the coercive use of injectable “contraceptives” which caused permanent infertility among many Amharic women.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has been a major contributor to the World Health Organization. For the 2016-2017 budget, the top two contributors were the USA and the Gates Foundation.
Dr. Michael Ryan, the Executive Director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Program, joined WHO in 1996. Dr. Ryan has also worked with the Gates Foundation.
During a WHO press conference on March 30, 2020, Dr. Ryan called for going door to door during the COVID-19 lock-down to “look in families to find those people who may be sick and remove them and isolate them . . .” See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v3vlw14NbM at WHO YouTube channel. The question starts at 46 minutes 20 seconds and his answer concludes at 50m 50s.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funds and advocates for policies and technologies relating to the management of human beings in the areas of population, disease, nutrition, reproduction and education. The Gates Foundation has funded many organizations besides WHO and the CDC Foundation. Its leadership includes Warren Buffett and William H. Gates Sr.
During the COVID-19 event, the media has given Bill Gates a prominent podium from which to issue declarations to governments and the public.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has recently highlighted criticism of Gates’ record and WHO.
The following concerns are based on one of Kennedy’s articles and the sources provided:
The Gates Foundation funded a campaign to eradicate polio. As a result of this campaign, from 2000 to 2017, in India, there were estimated to be an additional 491,000 cases of children with non-polio acute flaccid paralysis caused by the vaccine. In February 2017, the Indian government cut ties with the Gates Foundation and ended its control over the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization.
There have been outbreaks of vaccine-derived polio elsewhere:
In 2009, there were Gates Foundation funded tests of experimental HPV vaccines on 23,000 girls in India and 1,200 suffered severe side effects. The Indian parliament investigated.
The above article also discusses Depo Provera (DMPA) and its side effects, including sterilization. Informed consent is critical. The following document mentions that this drug has been used in Ethiopia and many countries: http://www.1037thebeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/DEPO-PROVERA-DEADLY-REPRODUCTIVE-VIOLENCE-Rebecca-Project-for-Human-Rights-June-2013-2.pdf
A Gates-funded experimental malaria vaccine was tested in which 151 children died. Serious adverse events occurred in 1,048 out of 5,949 children.
During Gates’ MenAfriVac campaign in 2010, there were reports of the meningitis vaccine being forced on African children with many cases of paralysis resulting.
In 2010, Gates made a $10 billion donation to WHO and called for a decade of vaccines.
In the same year, he presented a TED Talk on “Innovating to Zero” about population and carbon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaF-fq2Zn7I. Since then Gates has made other significant presentations.
In 2014, some Kenyan doctors accused WHO of chemically sterilizing millions of unwilling Kenyan women with a “tetanus” vaccine campaign. Labs found a sterility formula in every vaccine tested which had been developed for contraception in the 1990s. The same type of incidents were reported in the 1990s also.
A 2017 study shows that WHO’s DTP vaccine kills more African children than the diseases it prevents, with vaccinated girls suffering ten times the death rate of unvaccinated children.

Follow up information on why we should get people back to work to avoid greater suffering asap:
From March 26, 2020
Covid-19 — Navigating the Uncharted
By: Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., H. Clifford Lane, M.D., and Robert R. Redfield, M.D.
” . . . If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS . . . “
I would like to express my disagreement with the Canadian and Ontario government policies in response to the COVID-19 virus epidemic.
On March 23, the federal government announced a threat to enforce “social distancing” guidelines (https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-covid19-premiers-address-1.5506473).
Also, the Ontario government announced the shut-down of all “non-essential” businesses (https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/canada/covid-19-ontario-to-close-all-non-essential-businesses-three-new-cases-in-ottawa/ar-BB11Amza).
“Speaking in Toronto, [Premier Doug Ford] said only grocery stores, pharmacies, takeout and delivery restaurants, essential manufacturing industries and supply chain suppliers — as well as the province’s liquor stores — will be allowed to remain open. A full list of businesses allowed to stay open will be released Tuesday, he said.”
This definition of “non-essential” is very arbitrary. Most people depend on the income from their job to pay for their basic needs, and their job depends on someone’s business staying open.
To me, shutting down the economic and day-to-day activities of Canadians in this way is destructive. What will happen to our ability to pay our bills, to keep our homes, to feed ourselves, to pay for prescription medicines and look after our family members adequately after another two weeks (or another month) of these policies? The logical result is much worse than anything this virus is doing.
Look at the official statistics for this virus (https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection.html).As of March 24, this page indicates that there are are 1,959 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Canada and 27 deaths. Of that total, there are 588 cases and 8 deaths in the province of Ontario.
The domestic response to this virus is therefore out of proportion to its impact by comparison to other causes of death in Canada. For 2008, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada (https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/phac-aspc/migration/phac-aspc/publicat/lcd-pcd97/pdf/lcd-pcd-t1-eng.pdf):
For all ages, total deaths: 238,612 from all causes. These included 71,948 from cancer, 69,945 deaths from circulatory system diseases, 20,728 deaths from respiratory system diseases, 12,018 deaths from nervous system diseases, 11,535 deaths from mental disorders, 10,234 deaths from unintentional injuries, 10,053 deaths from endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases, 9,769 deaths from digestive system diseases, 5,289 deaths from genitourinary diseases, 4,704 deaths from infectious & parasitic diseases.
Deaths from suicide in 2017 is 11.7 per 100,000 (https://www.statista.com/statistics/434539/death-rate-for-suicide-in-canada/). Based on the population being 35,151,728 in 2016 (https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/12-581-x/2017000/pop-eng.htm), that means there were about 4,100 suicides in 2017.The death rate for meningitis is about 0.2 per 100,000 which calculates out to about 70 deaths total in 2017 (https://www.statista.com/statistics/434424/death-rate-for-meningitis-in-canada/).
The death rate for “influenze and pneumonia” (these are combined) in 2017 was 20 deaths per 100,000 (https://www.statista.com/statistics/434445/death-rate-for-influenza-and-pneumonia-in-canada/) which comes out to a total of over 7000 deaths.
“Cancer remains the leading cause of death in Canada. Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime and about 1 in 4 will die from cancer.
“In 2019, an estimated 220 400 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer and 82 100 will die from cancer.”
Think of all the Canadians who are dying from cancer while the government and media and corporations focus on coronavirus.
Considering these death statistics, consider the effects of inadequate or zero income on nutrition and medical treatment. What are the psychological effects of social distancing on personal happiness and on reproductive fertility? What effect is there going to be on suicide rates? What level of emotional distress is caused by the fear of the virus, the lack of income and the feelings of helplessness that are likely to result? What happens when people can’t afford gas or car maintenance?
Lets take a look at the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/const/page-12.html#h-40 What constitutional authority allows governments to shut down our economic means of survival – our ability to pay for housing and food so that we can live? Are these policies constitutional? These principles are legal facts. These are also morally and philosophically justified realities which many people are being led into a denial of through weak, one-sided arguments:
The Charter refers to a “guarantee of rights and freedoms.” Note the word “guarantee.”
“Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
“(a) freedom of conscience and religion;
“(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
“(c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
“(d) freedom of association.”
With “social distancing” and “self-isolating” measures, the government, major corporations and their media organizations are interfering with “freedom of peaceful assembly,” and “freedom of association” – and also with freedom of religion.
With their censorship efforts against alternative views, they are interfering with “freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication”.
Quoting from the “Mobility Rights” section of the Charter:
“(1) Every citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in and leave Canada.
“(2) Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right
“(a) to move to and take up residence in any province; and
“(b) to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province.”
Note that the Charter guarantees the right to mobility, whether you agree with all of that or not. But, in spite of this, the government wants everyone–symptoms or not–to stay in their homes. But this has never been done before.
Note that the Charter guarantees the right to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province and yet the Premier of Ontario has shut down many businesses, and the Canadian Prime Minister tells people to stay home–never mind their economic needs.
Is the seriousness of this virus enough to justify a violation of these fundamental freedoms and these economic and mobility rights?
In fact, how many people are going to die or become seriously ill because they and their family members are not mobile and not able to act independently in their own economic interest?
And I also want to quote these reminders from the “Legal Rights” section as a response to whatever other policies are being considered:
“7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.”
“8. Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.”
“9. Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned.”
And that is just a few of a long list of very relevant and important legal rights.
Note that number 7 refers to the right to “security of the person.” In my opinion, this implies that a person has a right to be in charge of their life–to live securely enough without fear so that they are able to provide for themselves (and their families) and survive economically.
Most of us have to deal with serious problems in our lives (other than this virus) that require our ability to exercise a free conscience as to what is our highest priority day by day. Drowning out our ability to think straight and act freely by subverting our priorities to an anxiety-creating, monomaniacal and exaggerated message–which also threatens our freedoms and our economic well-being–is not a morally legitimate activity by governments, corporations and media.
