Panel hearings from students claiming to have been damaged by Canada’s COVID-19 policy


Ceira Bishop, a college student in Toronto, said she was forced to get the COVID-19 vaccine to continue her research, but suffered heart damage after the injection, and invited Canadians who were adversely affected. Means of remarks by COVID-19 told experts in the hearing.

Bishop, who was studying at the University of Toronto Metropolitan, was one of the four college students who testified on the first day. Citizen hearingJune 22-June 24, an independent study organized by the Canadian COVID Care Alliance to investigate Canada’s pandemic response.

Bishop said he immediately hesitated about the vaccine when he saw how urgent the development of the vaccine was.

“I found some articles about how peplomer isolated from COVID is damaging. I was worried about its safety because I knew that the vaccine used peplomer. “She said. “I chose not to be vaccinated. I also conducted a risk and benefit analysis because I was young, healthy and free of comorbidity. [was that] It didn’t make sense to get vaccinated. “

However, after her school mandated the vaccine, Bishop decided to take a shot for fear of increasing her student loan and delaying her career. However, after receiving her second dose, she had severe chest pain and was sent to the emergency room, where she was later diagnosed with heart damage.

When asked to comment on the Bishop case, the University of Toronto Metropolitan told the Epoch Times in an e-mail statement that it needed to “change its activities and operations to protect the health of individuals and groups,” COVID. -Follow the vaccination policy under the Ontario Resumption Act, which added that compliance with -19 is legally required, and recommendations from public health authorities.

Democracy question

Bishop said she did not provide risk and benefit analysis to students when her university promoted vaccine policy.

“The university just mandated [the vaccines], I don’t think there was any kind of traffic between college and students, “Bishop said. “As far as I know, there was no dialogue between the university administration and the students.”

“I don’t think the university should teach people what to do about medical decisions.”

Former MP and official opposition leader Preston Manning said the Bishop case was a democracy in Canada if authorities at academia, businesses and other institutions imposed similar obligations without consulting students and employees. He said it would lead to a bigger problem in the process.

“The government empowers these institutions (in this case universities, like businesses and everyone else), and there is no dialogue between them and the people involved in doing this. In fact work, does this make sense? I think this is a very missing element of how all this was done, “said a panelist at the June 22 event. Manning, who led the hearing, said.

“It has more than just a student-university relationship. Companies proceeded with their mission without discussing with their employees, but other institutions did the same. In a sense, undemocratic ways. Will be processed by. “

Belief in science

Henry Lu, a computer science student at the University of Toronto, said he was absent from one course before graduating when the school introduced a vaccine policy. He said the cancer survivors have very much protection for his medical privacy and he does not want to be vaccinated.

He initially stated that the university had several alternative options for dealing with people like him, but they were soon phased out. To be tax exempt in Ontario, people must receive their first dose and report side effects.

“That is, you have to have myocarditis after taking the first shot … or you have to have a severe allergic reaction when you take the first shot. So they tell people Russian on the first shot. I’m letting you play roulette, and hey, if you survive, they give you a tax exemption. It’s unacceptable to me. “

Lou was asked if the reaction of Canada’s COVID-19 shook his belief in science.

“It didn’t shake my scientific beliefs at all because the science they advertise isn’t science. I follow real science,” Lu told panelists, many so-called scientists say vaccines are safe. He said he was just repeating the government’s claim that it was effective.

“Doctors are supposed to be the ones who look at each patient individually and come up with individual solutions to the problem. Everyone has different problems. Everyone has different bodies.” Lu said.

Injured youth

Hayley Weinrauch, a single mother and student in Saskatchewan, shared her story at an event on June 22 about how mandatory vaccines hurt her financial well-being and undermine family relationships.

She she was forced to end her studies if her vaccination obligation left her on unpaid leave and her college required students to be vaccinated by September last year or else they were forced to end their studies. He said he was in grief.

Waynelauf said he eventually received a religious exemption, but had to fight through a tedious process to get it, “I lost a lot of faith in our society.” Stated.

Hayley Weinrauch’s sister, Jaiden Weinrauch, was playing rugby at a university in Nova Scotia, but was banned from participating in team practice due to vaccination obligations and lost her scholarship. Her travel restrictions imposed during her pandemic also prevented her from returning home for Christmas and her grandfather’s funeral.

“It was arguably the most difficult year of my life,” she said. “Socially, I felt very isolated and very isolated from others.”
