ALBERTA (LifeSiteNews) – An emergency room physician from Alberta has claimed that the hospital capacity crisis in his province was “created,” is nothing new, and is not from COVID-19 patients.
“We have a crisis, and we have a crisis because we have no staff, because our staff quit, because they’re burned out, they’re not burnt out from COVID,” said Dr. Gary Davidson who works as an emergency doctor in Red Deer.
Davidson was speaking to a large crowd in central Alberta, and made the comments on September 18, according to media reports. The video circulating online of Davidson’s comments is just over six minutes in length.
“And the day before I lockdown, I texted one of my political friends and I said, we [Alberta] must be heading into lockdown because the numbers are starting to droop,” Davidson said in the video.
“As soon they droop, they put us in lockdown, so it looks like a lockdown fixed everything, and they’ve done this every time,” he continued. “I know, because I see the numbers. And so, you know that if you’re into one and a half days or two days into a droop, you’re going to have a lockdown because it gets better then, of course, it fixed it.”
