In your Policy Guidance of July 2021 you write:
Ultimately, it is the position of B.C.’s Human Rights Commissioner that duty bearers can in some circumstances implement a vaccination status policy such as a proof-of-vaccination requirement—but only if other less intrusive means of preventing COVID-19 transmission are inadequate for the setting and if due consideration is given to the human rights of everyone involved.
It is our pleasure to inform you that, there does in fact exist a less intrusive means of preventing COVID-19. A little pill that is adequate in all settings.
Ivermectin, a Nobel Prize-winning, WHO designated Essential Medicine, anti-parasitic drug with a 40 year 3.5+ billion dose safety record, has been shown to have significant anti-viral properties. It has been used successfully by many public health jurisdictions around the world to flatten COVID_19 curves when vaccine has been unavailable or in
limited supply. Most notably it was used by India to help knock down their delta-variant driven 2nd wave when their vaccine program was failing due to supply chain issues. It is still in use there to prevent infection of front line health workers and to treat COVID 19 infections. (1)(4)
Unlike antibodies from vaccines, Ivermectin, due to its bio-chemical mechanisms of action against the virus, has been shown to be indifferent to variants. (2)
Ivermectin has also been shown to have significant efficacy in treating COVID-19 in all settings and in all phases of the disease including Long Covid. (3)
The media are happy to conflate human-quality Ivermectin with animal Ivermectin animal-quality preparations. The recent stories on TV and in print on so-called horse paste were inaccurate and wholly biased.
Consequently we, the undersigned, call upon you, Commissioner,
to immediately declare the BC Government’s vaccine campaign to be an infringement upon the Human Rights of the people of British Columbia, and to require the BC Government
to cancel their vaccine passport plans,
to outlaw mandatory vaccinations,
to order reinstated any and all British Columbians fired for declining vaccination, to immediately make readily available all data and information related to the use of Ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 to all doctors in British Columbia, and
to actively encourage all doctors in British Columbia to discuss prescribing Ivermectin for their patients.
And, we the undersigned, call upon you to require the broadcast news media in British Columbia to adhere to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Code of Ethics as it relates to accuracy and bias, and to oblige the National NewsMedia Council to remind
its members in British Columbia to adhere to their own Codes of Ethics as they relate to accuracy and bias.
To hear the voices of people successfully treated for COVID-19, we commend you to the Testimonials Section of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance website – FLCCC.com.
