WHAT PREMIERS STEPHEN McNEIL, IAIN RANKIN, TIM HOUSTON, N.S. CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER OF HEALTH, ROBERT STRANG - AND THE MEDIA FAILED TO TELL YOU.

I am currently changing the layout of this website but have decided to keep everything up so that people who are interested have access to the information. If you are here to see the FOIPOPs - scroll down until you start to see links with the years 2021 and 2022.

INTERVIEW WITH ATLANTIC UNDERGROUND PODCAST

Thank you so much Chris for the opportunity to share 'Truth' - their data - their information - with your listeners.

Link is here to the Podcast, "A Lie to Die For."

One of the most disturbing Freedom of Information response that I have received is this one: 2022-01349-HEA.

The response confirms that while Dr. Robert Strang was making his ORDERS under the Health Protection Act - and no one questioned him - not one person in the media - not one person that I know of in health care - not one MLA or the Premier would stand in his way...his staff wrote to him stating that people had experienced severe allergic reactions on December 23, 2020 and one of them was instructed to take the second dose! A woman died after getting the Moderna vaccine in Long Term Care on January 28, 2021, another has a stroke on April 15, 2021, then a male had a neurological reaction/encephalopathy, another person on June 1, 2021 Vaccine Induced Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT). How is it that a person in the position of Chief Medical Officer can then tell people that if they don't get vaccinated that they have to go on unpaid leave? - That man got up every day - dress up in a suit - got in front of the camera and said...that these were "safe and effective." People died in the trials for heaven sakes. How is it that he felt that it was right to prohibit kids from playing sports unless they were injected with this? Based on Nova Scotia numbers it had a 99.5% recovery in Nova Scotia. I wasn't able to say good-bye to a very close person who was in my life for over 25 years. She was taken to hospital for her final days and because I wasn't injected I wasn't allowed in to see her and say good-bye. What is his definition of these words - safe and effective? - Death and injures are ok in his mind? How can he live with himself unless he has no feelings at all? Throughout these reports are "Media Lines on Some Vaccine issues for you" that he sends on to Communications Nova Scotia from the Public Health Agency of Canada. They are sent to people like Dr. Robert Strang, Dr. Teresa Tam, Deena Hinshaw, Bonnie Henry etc. to teach everyone what to say - so that they are all on the same page. Didn't Bonnie Henry say just that? That they give her what to read. Unreal. See for yourself here:

QUESTION: What's going on?

General admissions/hospitalizations (not ICU) for COVID-19 are below. The totals are not firm because they say that I might be able to determine personal medical information if they give me the exact number so they use >5 (less than five) if there are 1,2,3 or 4 people. Therefore, I left the <5 out and just added the numbers five and above.

The number of COVID hospitalizations for 2020 was 239 people.

The number of COVID hospitalizations for 2021 was 721 people.

The number of COVID hospitalizations for 2022...was 6187 people up to the end of October.

QUESTION: What's going on? As most of these people would be injected - is this injection putting people in hospital?

The information below on COVID-19 have been compiled by applying to the Nova Scotia government for Freedom of Information (FOI) records. The responses are from the Department of Health and Wellness where Dr. Robert Strang works, the Nova Scotia Health Authority which is a charity that received $2,293,000,000 from the government in 2021 to run our Nova Scotia hospitals, the Premier's Office, and the Department of Education. (Source for government contribution: NSHA-2021-183). Below you will find a snapshot of what I learned by putting the pieces of the puzzle together, links to articles that covered several of the Freedom of Information responses, several short, simple videos that puts some of the data together, and the links for the FOIPOPs so that you can look at the data for yourself in order to make your own conclusions.

The snapshot

We know that the population of Nova Scotia is 1,007,049. There were 238,474 PCR tests done in 2020 and 1,347,912 PCR tests done in 2021 totalling 1,586,386 tests in two years and 1,564,643 or 98.6% of the test results were NEGATIVE. Yes, there were more negative test results than the population of Nova Scotia. FOIPOP 2022-00445-HEA Table I.

In 2020, there were 1,493 positives and in 2021 there were 18,953 positives totalling 20,446 positives in two years and 65 people died in 2020 and 49 died in 2021 which is 114 people. Basic math tells us that 0.55% of the positive cases died in two years or 20,332 or 99.5% lived. FOIPOP 2022-00445-HEA Table I and Table 3.

So we might want to know a few health details about the people who died.

The life expectancy for those born in Nova Scotia is 80 and those that are dying of COVID? The median age is 83 years old. Yes, those dying of COVID are living longer than the life expectancy of Nova Scotians. (NS COVID-19 Dashboard) Freedom of Information request 2021-01142-HEA tells us that the top three comorbidities (other illnesses or conditions that people had when they supposedly died of COVID) were cardiac disorders (60%), neurological conditions (54%) and diabetes (21%). Eighty-seven percent of deaths were 65 years of age or older. In a FOIPOP done by someone else but captured in a FOIPOP that I requested we learn that even though people were at the end of life in Northwood Long Term Care, they were instructed to mark them down as COVID-19 deaths.

As well, we learn from Table 2 FOIPOP 2021-01575 that from March 22, 2020 to August 19, 2021 that of the 5,884 total COVID-19 cases, that 4,411 of the people had symptoms and 1,473 did not thus 25% were asymptomatic. In Table 3 Number of COVID-19 Deaths from March 22, 2020 to August 19, 2021 it is noted that no one who was asymptomatic died from COVID.

To help put this into perspective we learn from FOIPOP 2022-00455-SNSIS that in 2020, a total of 9,964 died from all causes in Nova Scotia and 65 of them were COVID or 0.65%; less than 1%. In 2021, a total of 10,072 died from all causes and 49 were COVID or 0.48%. Again, less than 1%. In two years, 20,036 people died in Nova Scotia from all causes and 114 were COVID or 0.56%. Less than 1% of the deaths in two years – during a ‘pandemic’ were COVID.

That means that 19,922 people who died in Nova Scotia in 2020 and 2021 or 99.43% died from other causes. NOT COVID-19.

In a FOIPOP “Dump” from Nova Scotia Health we learn in FOIPOP NSHA-2020-69 that thirty-three people died in 2020 when life-saving surgeries were cancelled throughout Nova Scotia.

What were the COVID-19 ICU Hospitalizations to July 31, 2021 (19 months)? Did any hospitals in Nova Scotia with ICU beds have no COVID-19 ICU hospitalizations?

Yes – between January 1, 2020 to July 31, 2021 – in a year and a half during this pandemic - there were ZERO (0) COVID-19 ICU hospitalizations at five hospitals;

Aberdeen Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 ICU hospitalizations out of a total of 857 ICUs.

Cumberland Regional had ZERO (0) COVID out of 443 ICUs.

South Shore Regional had ZERO (0) COVID out of 512 ICUs.

St. Martha’s Regional had ZERO (0) COVID out of 692 ICUs.

Yarmouth Regional had ZERO (0) COVID out of 575 ICUs.

The following Nova Scotia ICU Hospitals saw 2% or less of COVID-19

Cape Breton Health Care Complex had 10 COVID-19 ICUs out of 1,494 or COVID was 0.67% of the total.

Colchester had 9 out of 1,103 ICUs or 0.82%.

Dartmouth General had 5 out of 754 ICUs or 0.66%.

QEII, the VG and Halifax Infirmary together had 74 ICUs out of 4,608 ICUs or 1.6%.

Valley Regional had 12 out of 589 ICUs or 2.03%.

The above information is from a combination of two FOIPOPs: FOIPOP NSHA-2021-109 & NSHA Copy of FOIPOP 82 Data-Updated.

Did any hospitals in Nova Scotia have no COVID-19 general admissions (not ICU)?

Yes – the following hospitals had ZERO (0) COVID-19 hospitalizations up to October 2021. (This was the date I submitted the FOIPOP):

Annapolis Community Health Centre had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Buchanan Memorial Community Health had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Digby General had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Eastern Memorial Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Eastern Shore Memorial Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Fisherman’s Memorial Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Queens General Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Roseway Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Sacred Heart Community Centre had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

St. Mary’s Memorial had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Strait Richmond Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Victoria County Memorial Hospital had ZERO (0) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

The following hospitals had LESS THAN FIVE (>5) COVID-19 general hospitalizations:

Inverness Consolidated Memorial had LESS THAN FIVE (>5) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

Musquodoboit Valley Memorial had LESS THAN FIVE (>5) general hospitalizations.

Northside General Hospital had LESS THAN FIVE (>5) COVID-19 general hospitalizations.

To help once again put the numbers in perspective, in May 2021 at the QEII, VG, and the Halifax Infirmary had a total of 200 COVID-19 hospitalizations which totalled 10% of their hospitalizations for that month. Ninety percent were for other illnesses or conditions. The question is - were they in hospital FOR COVID? or where they in for other reasons and tested positive with a PCR test that is unreliable at detecting illness.

There were 110 COVID-19 ICU Hospitalizations out of a total of 11,627 ICU Hospitalizations in 2020 and up to July 31, 2021. That's 0.95% of the total that were COVID-19 ICU Hospitalizations. Turn that around...99.05% were ICU hospitalizations due to OTHER CAUSES. This information is from FOIPOP NSHA-2021-109 and "Copy of FOIPOP 109 Data Updated."

In FOIPOP “Copy of FOIPOP 82 Data Updated” from Nova Scotia Health, I went back to 2015 to compare ICU hospitalizations by hospital in Nova Scotia.

In 2015 there were a total of 7,906 ICU hospitalizations.

In 2016 there were a total of 8,300 ICU hospitalizations.

In 2017, there were a total of 8,024 ICU hospitalizations.

In 2018, there were a total of 8,005 ICU hospitalizations.

In 2019, there were a total of 7,708 ICU hospitalizations.

In 2020, there were a total of 7,306 ICU hospitalizations. (Yes, during a ‘pandemic’ there were the least ICU hospitalizations going back to 2015.)

In 2021, up to September there were 5,855 ICU hospitalizations.

In April of 2021 this same FOIPOP shows us that there was a reduction in ICU beds from 121 beds to 117. (4 less beds for the months of May (31 days), June (30 days), July (31 days), August (31 days), September (30 days), October (31 days), November (30 days) and December (31 days) totals a reduction of 245 days x 4 bed reduction = 980 nights...during a so called pandemic.

To help put things in perspective, we also learn in FOI NS-2022-004 that there were 3,198 total Staffed Inpatient Beds as of April 2020 and 3,239 Staffed Inpatient Beds as of April 1, 2021.

As well, in FOIPOP NSHA 2021-181 I requested all data on the reasons why people were admitted into hospital by most responsible diagnosis and there were 82 pages with 72 different reasons on a page totalling 5,904 different reasons. “COVID-19 Virus Identified” was one reason...and “COVID-19 causing adverse effects in therapeutic use” was another. This was from December 14, 2020 to September 30, 2021.

And let’s look at the Nova Scotia COVID-19 dashboard a government website found here: https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/204d6ed723244dfbb763ca3f913c5cad

As of October 18, 2022. Hospitalizations by vaccine status: 6% have had zero doses, 6% have had one dose, 20% have had two doses, 27% have had three doses, and 41% have had four doses. 94% have had at least one dose and 88% are fully vaccinated.

A total of 49 people are in hospital (with?) COVID. There is a total of 3,239 staffed Inpatient Beds in Nova Scotia. (FOI NSHA-2022-005) Forty-nine hospitalizations out of 3,239 beds is 1.5 %. Thus, 98.5% are NOT COVID-19 hospitalizations.

Vaccination status of deaths since December 8, 2021: 19% have 0-1 dose, 28% have had 2 doses, and 53% have had 3 doses. Eighty-one percent (81%) of the deaths are fully vaccinated.

And to roll out injections for children as young as six months old when they don't work and the risk to children is just about zero?

What is a ‘COVID-19 deceased case’ as defined by the province of Nova Scotia? --- “A probable or confirmed COVID-19 case whose death resulted from a clinically compatible illness, unless there is a clear alternative cause of death identified, for example trauma, poisoning or drug overdose.”

Wait a minute...what exactly is a clinically compatible illness to COVID?

And what about this? In FOI NSHA 2021-185 I ask for, "Any record, proof, document, report that an asymptomatic positive COVID-19 case is contagious and spread to others in Nova Scotia.

Guess what...after a thorough search...there was no record.

Now, one would think that the media, the medical community or those responsible for our higher education would look at this data and a light bulb would go off - but a government COVID deal paid out an extra $65 million to Nova Scotia doctors and $24,612,000 was given to NS school boards in the form of grants for COVID with no requirement for receipts.

No one wants to talk about the elephant in the room. Meantime, the data is starting to speak for itself.

MEDIA COVERAGE ON FREEDOM OF INFORMATION RESPONSES:

I sent many of my FOIPOP responses to all the MLAs, reporters with the CBC, CTV and the Chronicle Herald, our provincial paper. Only the Chronicle covered information. I would like to thank CANUCK LAW, Rebel News, and Linda Pannazzo for reporting on several of my FOIPOPs.

CITIZENS ALLIANCE OF NOVA SCOTIA (CANS) REQUEST FOR JUDICIAL REVIEW - RECORD PROVIDED BY THE PROVINCE

I would like to congratulate CANS for their determination and dedication to the people of our province as they bravely wade through the court system and request a judicial review.

In the Health Protection Act it states in Section 32 the following: Powers respecting communicable diseases 32 (1) Where a medical officer is of the opinion, upon reasonable and probable grounds, that (a) a communicable disease exists or may exist or that there is an immediate risk of an outbreak of a communicable disease; (b) the communicable disease presents a risk to the public health; and (c) the requirements specified in the order are necessary in order to decrease or eliminate the risk to the public health presented by the communicable disease, the medical officer may by written order require a person to take or to refrain from taking any action that is specified in the order in respect of a communicable disease.

On our behalf they are asking the courts to look at whether Dr. Robert Strang worked within his powers under the Act or overstepped the authority that he was given. Was he justified?

I certainly have my opinion. There were people who were arrested for being outside. People were not to walk on a beach. They provided information that was out of context, there was pain and suffering, closures, isolation, loss of family, loss of friends, loss of employment, injuries and loss of life from the vaccines, loss of life from not getting timely life-saving surgeries, the inability to play sports, go to restaurants, attend church services, funerals, the inability to see loved ones before they died...all for a 'virus' with a 99.57% recovery rate in NS. There is something very wrong with this picture and I'm sure very pleased that we have some brave souls questioning this matter. You can click here to see the links to the record that the province provided the court. Thank you CANS.

CANS VERSUS STRANG - THE RECORD

FIVE SHORT VIDEOS ON FREEDOM OF INFORMATION RESPONSES PLUS ONE ON THE TERRAIN THEORY.

1. What Houston and Strang AREN'T Telling you about COVID-19 in Nova Scotia. (7 Minutes)

This video below captures the total ICU admissions in Nova Scotia for all causes and the FACT that only 0.94% of ICU hospitalizations were COVID-19 up to July 31, 2021; the total number of deaths in NS and the FACT that 0.65% were COVID. It takes us through the FACT that Nova Scotia had the lowest ICU admissions in 2020 and in April 2021 the NSHA reduced the number of ICU beds by four which is a reduction of 1,100 stays. There is data on the serious adverse events from the vaccine which may explain why some people don’t want to take it.

Click on this video: What Houston and Strang aren't telling you about COVID-19 in Nova Scotia.

2. COVID-19 in Nova Scotia: Behind the Scenes. (15 Minutes.)

This video provides context and background to what has been announced to the public for the past two years. It includes the number of tests, number of negatives, number of cases, number of COVID hospitalizations and ICUs per hospital in N.S., 25% of cases were asymptomatic and the fact that not one asymptomatic person has died from COVID. There is no record that a positive asymptomatic COVID-19 case has spread to another Nova Scotian. Also included are the minute notes on why COVID-19 treatments such as Ivermectin and Bamlanivimab not being permitted for use in N.S. YES there are treatments...(and you do have what people refer to as an immune system)...but public health forgot that point for the past two years. (15 minutes)

Click on this video: COVID-19 in Nova Scotia - Behind the scenes data that puts things into perspective.

3. Nova Scotia Adds "Blood Clotting Disorder" to TOP 10 Reported Adverse Events to the COVID-19 Vaccine.

This video shows us that on September 30th, 2022 the Nova Scotia government added "Blood Clotting Disorder" to the TOP 10 reported adverse events following immunization with the COVID-19 vaccine.

4. Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness Epidemiologist use Creative Calculations to Scare People.

In the Nova Scotia Monthly COVID-19 Epidemiologic Summary dated August 24, 2022 it states that "Unvaccinated Nova Scotians were hospitalized at nearly four times the rate and died more than three times the rate as those with three or more doses." --- The key here is that they did NOT compare the unvaccinated with the vaccinated, but chose to compare the unvaccinated with only those with three or more doses. I'll walk you through this FOIPOP data confirming this.

5. The Most COVID-19 Hospitalizations are in 2022 - NOT 2020 or 2021. What's going on Folks? (12 minutes)

I'll walk you through information from four FOIPOPs which show that something weird is happening in Nova Scotia and there is silence from authorities in health care, the media, and our politicians. Is there any wonder?

6. Germ Theory VS Terrain Theory

This video by Dr. Sam Bailey out of New Zealand takes a look at the Germ Theory which we learned in school...and the Terrain Theory - which makes more sense to me. Notice both are theories. Maybe mucus, coughs, fever, diarrhea and vomiting are actually our friend - It's our own body trying to get rid of toxins and heal.

Germ Theory vs Terrain Theory

What is a Freedom of Information request?

Information Access and Privacy (IAP) Services does not answer questions or provide analyzed data. They only provide government records. Therefore, we are required to ‘turn a question that we have’ into a ‘request for a record’ and then with the information provided in the response (if they provided it) we can attempt to piece those records together so that we understand what is happening in government behind the scenes. First, we should not have to request records and then ‘go to battle’ with government staff to get the information that we want. Sections of the Act are often used as reasons for not providing the record - or the record can be so redacted that it fails to give us what we are seeking. This process works for government but fails the people and needs to be revamped.

The Freedom of Information responses are sited under the following 12 topics:

1. Masks and Lockdowns

2. COVID-19 PCR Testing

3. Hospitalizations

4. Comorbidities, NS Data on Deaths & Natural Immunity Information

5. Vaccination Information

6. Vaccination Passport/Proof of Vaccination

7. Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI)

8. Freedom of Information Responses involving money spent for COVID-19

9. Data on Deaths in Nova Scotia

10. Involving the Premier’s Office

11. State of Emergency

12. NSHA Freedom of Information Dumps (I requested all previous FOIPOPs done on COVID-19 to the NSHA)

Date range for record search: July 15, 2020 to August 16, 2021. Attached as Exhibit ___ is a true copy of what I received back: 2021-01565-PRE. It is interesting that the studies that I sent to the Premier’s office are not in this reply.

b) On August 23, 2021 I applied for the following FOIPOP information from the Premier: All information, reports, updates, correspondence, briefing and meeting notes that include the phrase "Scotia Pass" - "Vaccine Passport" - "Proof of Vaccination." Date range for record search: March 31, 2020 to August 30, 2021. Attached as Exhibit ___ is a true copy of what I received back: 2021-01584-PRE.

In addition, certain information was excluded from the FOIPOP Act, per section 4, and has not been provided: •4(2) (a), Act does not apply to published material or material that is available for purchase by the public •4(2)(e), Act does not apply to a record that is created by or is in the custody of the Conflict of Interest Commissioner appointed pursuant to the Conflict of Interest Act, the Ombudsman or the Review Officer and that relates to the exercise of that person’s functions pursuant to an enactment.

This would include letters/memos/e-mails/correspondence etc that have been issued - including any that may have been issued to MLAs and other levels of government - stating that the vaccine is not mandatory. This would include Premier Tim Houston and previous premiers who would have issued such a letter to MLAs and other groups, organizations etc. in the province. (This is circulating around on social media - that MLAs - and municipal staff - can have an exemption – looking for information as to whether this is true or not) Date range for record search: November 30, 2020 to October 6, 2021. Attached as Exhibit ___ is a true copy of what I received back: 2021-01858-PRE. Comments in response letter: After a file search, we have located no records responsive to your application. Therefore, it is my understanding, pursuant to clause 7(2) (b) of the Act, that Office of the Premier does not have custody or control of records which would respond to your application.

d) On January 27, 2022 I applied for the following FOIPOP information from the Department of Health and Wellness: In this article:https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/nova-scotia-gospel-light-baptist-church-covid-outbreak-1.6250957 it states: “Three people have died in the past week of COVID-19 — one at a group home in Amherst and two at a long-term care home in Pugwash, N.S. — and the province has said those cases trace back to the Gospel Light event.” 1.

12. NSHA Freedom of Information Dumps: The Nova Scotia Health Authority is not required to publicly post FOIPOPs. Therefore I created a FOIPOP asking for all COVID related FOIPOPs. These are not directly my FOIPOPs but they have been provided to me through a FOIPOP request. This is Nova Scotia Health Information. Total number of pages in FOIPOP: 1,935. I have listed the request date, a description of the request, and the page(s) that the request has been provided.

NOVA SCOTIA HEALTH LARGE FOIPOP DUMP (DESCRIPTION AND LINK)

The Nova Scotia Health Authority does not have to post any of their FOIPOPs on-line. So I must say - I had a 'lightbulb moment' to do a FOIPOP in order to receive all the FOIPOPs on COVID-19. It's over 1900 pages and covers a number of significant topics including: the number of cancelled services which included 32,540 diagnostic imaging, 3,263 MRIs, 4,998 CT scans, 6,512 ultrasounds, 3,097 x-rays, 1,141 EKGs, 449 Eccho, 2,776 Mammo, 8,210 breast screening, 3,213 surgical cancellations in 2020); a result of this 33 people died because they needed life saving surgeries in a timely manner and the hospitals were closed down; the inserts to the rapid tests which indicate to me that a positive result means that it could be a co-infection, a bacterial infection or COVID-19 - the way it is written, it can't tell the difference between the three; Dr. Lisa Barrett advocating and doing presentations to NOT allow the use of Ivermectin; minutes on other treatments that they blocked from use and "kept" for a research study instead of using it to save lives; the Nova Scotia Health Authority pamphlet on COVID-19 states that it is pneumonia.(Did you ever hear Strang say that it was pneumonia?) It also shows an e-mail back and forth that shows that even though people at Northwood (a long term care facility in Halifax that had 53 of the 65 deaths in 2020)... were at the end of life they were instructed to mark them down as COVID-19 deaths. Why would they do this? To create fake numbers and drive up the fear?

Chronicle Herald Coverage: Are Nova Scotians getting the full story on COVID Vaccine Safety

NOTES:

The NS Department of Health and Wellness provided me with the definitions of a "deceased case" and "vaccine status." They are as follows:

Deceased case: "A probable or confirmed COVID-19 case whose death resulted from a clinically compatible illness , unless there is a clear alternative cause of death identified (e.g., trauma, poisoning, drug overdose)." "A death due to COVID-19 may be attributed when COVID-19 is the cause of death or is a contributing factor. "

Vaccine status is defined as follows: "Unvaccinated: Individuals meeting the national confirmed case definition of COVID-19 and having illness onset: <14 days post first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine or after having received 0 doses of any COVID-19 vaccine."

So a deceased case can be probable and from a clinically compatible illness. It does not have to be confirmed. Interesting. They also lumped together those with NO SHOTS with those who have had one dose. Why did they decide to do that I wonder. So when they report that the unvaccinated are taking up hospital beds is it infact those who have had one shot?

Table 1: I learned that in 245 days, from December 13, 2020 to August 15, 2021 there were 4,555 cases and 29 deaths. Basic math tells us that 0.63% died who "got COVID." Less than 1%. 99.37% lived.(FOIPOP 2021-01142 above tells us the comorbidities that people had when they blamed it 100% on COVID-19. Those who died in 2020 were very sick and 82% died in Northwood. One facility.)

From Table 2: By week, from December 14, 2020 to August 22, 2021 - there were 754,384 of the 1st dose, 676,566 of the 2nd dose, for a total of 1,430,950 doses.

From Table 3: By week, from December 13, 2020 to August 22, 2021 - there were 400 non-serious adverse events following the COVID-19 vaccine. There were 83 serious adverse events. According to the definitions supplied in this FOIPOP the following is a Serious Adverse Event Following Immunization:

Definition of a Serious Adverse Event: An adverse event following immunization that has resulted in AT LEAST one of the following: Hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; Death or permanent disability/incapacity.

Nova Scotia’s Covid -19 response actions have been based on national and international guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). As the leading agencies for pandemic response nationally and internationally, both PHAC and WHO are continuously reviewing the evolving scientific evidence regarding COVID-19 and the effectiveness of various measures. These reviews are used to form their guidance, position statements, and other documents all of which are in the public domain.

The Government of Canada’s resources, including COVID-19 guidance documents, are available at https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-diseasecovid- 19.html

The WHO’s resources, including COVID-19 technical guidance, are available at https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

The Department of Health and Wellness Public Health Branch continues to be in ongoing contact with PHAC and WHO as evidence has evolved throughout the pandemic. This includes as a participant in federal/provincial/territorial conversations, including committees and networks. This has enabled recommendations on public health measures to be informed by the most up to date evidence.

Surely if Strang says that "the science is clear" - that he has a copy and has read the science - and would be willing to share it...but obviously not.They want me to go on a wild goose chase to find it.

Number of COVID-19 Cases by month that were Asymptomatic and Symptomatic and total for each year 2020 and year 2021 3.

This FOIPOP tells us the following government information that was not shared with the public to provide context:

In Table 1 we learn the following:

The total number of PCR "tests" performed by the Public Health labs is 238,474 in 2020.

Of those 238,474 test results, 236,820 were NEGATIVE. 1,493 tested positive. Out of the 1,493 positives, 65 died. (Table 3)

NOTE: 53 of the 65 were in one long term care facility called Northwood, the largest care facility in Nova Scotia.

In the "large NSHA FOIPOP" (link above) we learn that "someone" told management to mark down people that died as COVID even though they were "at the end of life."

Also in Table 1 we learn that in 2021 after they started injecting people with "the vaccine" the PCR "technology" (in my opinion it is not a 'test') was used 1,347,912 times on people in Nova Scotia. (This is more than the population of Nova Scotia.)

Of those 1,347,912 "tests" that were done, there were 1,327,823 PCR "tests" that were NEGATIVE meaning (in my opinion) that the majority of people in Nova Scotia who tested were negative...but we were not told this.

There were 18,953 who "tested positive." And from that, 49 people died "from COVID"(In Table 3) in 2021.

So in 2021, 49 people died "from COVID" out of 18,953 'cases' which is 0.25%...not even 1%.

And we learn in FOIPOP 2022-00547-HEA and FOIPOP 2021-01142-HEA and from Stats Can that the people who died had SERIOUS comorbidity issues. I would like to know how many people died who started out with a HEALTHY immune system. That might be another FOIPOP to do.

Please note too (to provide further context) that between 9,000 and 10,000 people die every year in Nova Scotia.

In 2022 after 80% plus of the population in Nova Scotia has been injected and people have been fired for not doing so (with something that doesn't work) the government data tells us that in January, February and March there have been a total of 201,567 tests done and 30,741 positives. 168,100 negatives.There are more positives now than in 2020 at the start of the pandemic because testing is still through the roof.

Also - to my knowledge the PCR test is NO LONGER USED in the States as of December 31, 2021. Florida dropped the test early in this so called pandemic due to the high Cycle Thresholds being used.

In Table 2 in 2020, of the 1,514 positive COVID-19 cases...718 had symptoms and 439 were asymptomatic or had no symptoms (because in my opinion they didn't have COVID. Actually in my opinion no one had COVID.) Three hundred and fifty-seven (357) people, it was unknown whether they had symptoms or not.

In 2021, of the 9,425 cases, 712 had symptoms and 2,138 did not...and 6,575 were unknown or not entered as to whether or not they had symptoms.

In Table 3 we learn that in 2020, 65 people died of COVID, in 2021 49 people died of COVID and in three months in 2022 (Jan-Mar...which March is incomplete) there were 118 people whom the government said died of COVID. (Were any autopsies done I wonder to confirm any of this?) So basically after being masked, shut down, injected...more people "died of COVID in 2022" in three months than in 2020 and 2021 combined.

In another person's FOIPOP we learn that the PCR technology was set between 38-42 Cycle Threshold at labs throughout Nova Scotia.

I would like to request an update on FOIPOP 2021-01142-HEA (to learn all the comorbidity data that the people had who died 'with' or 'from' COVID-19) with 1.) a breakdown in ages as follows: 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69,70-79, 80-89, 90+ 2.) and a breakdown on how many of the total were fully vaccinated. 3. How many died of the total in Long Term Care or a nursing home. Please include an updated Table 1 with the age ranges noted above as well as Table 2 and Table 3. with a break down with how many were fully vaccinated. Thank you! (Date Range for Record Search: From 02/29/2020 To 03/31/2022)

Read carefully the definition of a "Confirmed Case," "Unvaccinated," and "Deceased Case." Very enlightening.

So Table 1 and 2 have to be redone to provide more accurate numbers. We need a breakdown of those who did not receive ANY SHOTS. Zero. They lump them together.

We can also see from Table 3 that of the 195 who died from "COVID" in Nova Scotia from February 29, 2020 to March 31, 2022, there were 67 with cardiac disorders, 54 with neurological conditions, 27 with diabetes, 22 with pulmonary disorders, 12 with chronic renal disease, 7 with cancer, 6 with immunocompromised conditions. (so what did these people REALLY die from? COVID or their conditions?

For part 3 of your request DHW does not hold information about the vaccination status of COVID-19 hospital. You may choose to follow up with Nova Scotia Health for this information.

What this FOIPOP tells us:

This is where I start to question what is happening to people who have received the booster. There are cases and hospitalizations increases with those who have two or more shots in December 2021. Don't take my word for it. Please look for yourself.

26. 2022-00626-HEA click here to download 2022-00626-HEA

Table 4 is concerning. It's COVID 19 deaths by immunization status. From September 2021 to December 2021, there were 27 deaths from "COVID." Seven did not have any shots, and 20 had one or more doses. Then we see something strange happen in the next four months. Sixty-five had no shots who died and 132 had one or more doses. So out of the 197 who died of COVID during this time frame, 32% had no shots of vaccine and 67% had shots.

In Table 6 we learn that 87 people have had a serious adverse reaction to the vaccine. A serious adverse event means that they are disabled, incapcitate or have died. That's pretty serious for a 'safe and effective' vaccine that injures people and doesn't work.

Table 8 tells us that 11 people have died in Nova Scotia as a direct result of taking the vaccine.87 people have not recovered from a serious reaction to the vaccine and 7 are permanently disable and incapacitated.

NOTES: Even though they did not give me what I asked for (I wanted the INTERNAL reports and they gave me correspondence from people) - Christine Massey’s info is in there! The Premier's office received this and they ignored it. She did dozens of FOIPOPs around the world that proves that the virus does not exist!

The Premier’s office received some VERY GOOD INFORMATION from members of the public.

Five stand out to me.

1. P 10 is from someone in Meaford Ontario. They quote Geert Vanden Bossche and the Childrens Health Defense Org.

2. P32 Letter states that they had discussions with Dr. Carr, Dr. Davidson and Dr. Kevin Orrell. Well written letter about monoclonal antibodies that were not used. Written from someone in East Bay NS.

3. P 37 As mentioned above - I recognize as Christine Massey’s work who has a website - a worldwide collection of FOI responses from 141 institutions (41 of them Canadian) showing that "the virus" was never isolated/purified, and thus "it" has never been characterized, sequenced, or studied with controlled experiments.

FOIs reveal that health/science institutions around the world have no record of SARS-COV-2 isolation/purification, anywhere, ever.

4. P70 the mention about Israel’s 4th shot.

5. P 76 letter was to the Premier of Quebec but copied all premiers and provides lots of scientific links that the ignored.

· Can "Nova Scotia's TOP DOCTOR" not think for himself and analyze local data to make his own conclusions? (Wouldn't that be part of his job description?)

· He is the top paid bureaucrat in this province with a salary of over $300,000 and he can’t look at who is dying from COVID (that doesn't exist) and reassure people that the hospitals are in fact NOT being over-run by COVID. (ICUs and hospitalizations from COVID were less than 1%.)

(For example a breakdown of how many died of cancer, heart disease, suicide, drug overdose, kidney failure etc. for the above years) (Date Range for Record Search: From 12/31/2019 To 3/11/2022)

NOTES:

In 2019, there were 9,772 people who died in Nova Scotia from all causes.

In 2020, there were 9,964 people who died in Nova Scotia from all causes and we know that government said that 65 of them were "COVID."

In 2021 there were 10,072 people who died in Nova Scotia from all causes and we know that government said that 49 of them were "COVID."

So in 2020 and 2021 there were 20,036 people in Nova Scotia who died from all causes and 114 of them, the government said died of COVID. That's 0.56% of the deaths in two years was COVID.

Of the 114 "COVID deaths" at least 53 were at Northwood and at the end of life.

The FOIPOP response for categorizing the cause of death is incomplete for 2021 but let's look at 2019 and compare it to 2020.

Under section "IX. Diseases of the circulatory system TOTAL" we learn that in 2019, 14 males and 28 females died of Influenza totaling 42.

We also learn that the total for all causes of pneumonia was 154.

To help with perspective again, in section II in 2020, we can see that 1,553 males and 1,334 females died of Neoplasms - a total of 2887.

(What is a Neoplasm? An abnormal mass of tissue that forms when cells grow and divide more than they should or do not die when they should. Neoplasms may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer).

In 2020 under the same heading, we learn that 5 males and 6 females died on influenza totaling 11 and the total of all types of pneumonia is 102.

Our new novel COVID-19 disease is 27 deaths in males and 39 deaths in females which totals 66.

I wrote the department to ask when the information off of the death certificates would be put into the system for 2021. This is the reply: "I spoke with our Research and Stats officer, and essentially we are behind in coding the death information that is sent to Stats Canada. We have competing priorities, specifically implementing a new vital event registry, which has prevented us from focusing on our core responsibilities. In time, we will be able to get up to date with coding and sending death information off to Stats Can and the data will be more accurate.

Data on the number of hospital beds available by hospital for 2019, 2020, 2021. If there is a change throughout the year (increase or decrease) please note that as well.

NOTES: We learn perspective and context from this FOIPOP. When one of the premiers, Dr. Strang or the media would state that there are 20 or 200 in hospital with COVID, it is good to know that our "Total Hospital Inpatient Bed and Bassinet counts by Zone and Site" to put that number in perspective.

In 2019 the total capacity is 3,379 with 3,210 staffed and 3,118 in operation.

In 2020 the total capacity is 3,411 with 3,198 staffed and 3,103 in operation.

In 2021 there is a total capacity of 3,449 and 3,239 staffed and 3,144 in operation.

So based on this government information there are more staffed than in operation each year.

Let's do some basic math. Let's say that 66 people were hospitalized with "COVID in 2021. That sounds scary. But when we know according to FOIPOP NSHA 2022-005 that between 146 and 164 people were not admitted because of COVID but for other reasons and tested positive, and we know that there are 3,144 staffed beds in Nova Scotia and only 66 were "for COVID" (which now we know may have been for OTHER REASONS)...we learn that 66 out of 3,144 staffed beds...that's 2%.

Did anyone tell you this? Nope.

NOTES: Up to December 31, 2021 (two years) there were between 146 and 164 number of patients (the NSHA does this >5 crap which makes it difficult to determine the actual number) who tested positive for COVID-19 on or prior to admission to hospital for other ailments or illnesses. All of these would have been announced as COVID hospitalizations in the news, by the premier or Dr. Robert Strang. By not providing this context, once again I feel that they were misleading the public in my opinion.People were not so sick from COVID that they had to be hospitalized...but tested positive and may have been asymptomatic and not sick at all from COVID.

Any and all records, proof, documents, reports, evidence that a Symptomatic positive COVID-19 case is contagious and spread to others in Nova Scotia.

NOTES:

Re: Access Denied – OUR FILE# NSHA-2022-007 THEY STATE: "There is ample public knowledge available showing that someone who is symptomatic and tests positive for COVID-19 can spread the disease. This evidence comes from both scientific studies and from people discussing their personal experiences with COVID-19.

I replied:

Christine Massey has a website - a worldwide collection of FOI responses from 141 institutions (41 of them Canadian) showing that "the virus" was never isolated/purified, and thus "it" has never been characterized, sequenced, or studied with controlled experiments. And thus the alleged RNA strand of 30,000 base pairs with a spiky protein shell that spreads "covid" via natural modes of exposure has never been shown to exist. The FOIs are here: https://www.fluoridefreepeel.ca/fois-reveal-that-health-science-institutions-around-the-world-have-no-record-of-sars-cov-2-isolation-purification/

You can find 2 previous versions of declaration/affidavit here, along with compilation pdfs of the FOI responses grouped by country:

https://tinyurl.com/IsolationFOIs

Thus, the question of proof of COVID spreading to others is a legitimate question. What proof does the NSHA or the DHW have that this spreads?

Also, there is the Germ THEORY verus the TERRAIN THEORY. Both came out at about the same time. Both are THEORIES!!! J Dr. Sam Bailey talks about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFS57OJ9VyM if you are interested.

I personally believe the terrain theory...that we don’t catch this so called virus that has never been isolated. It is basically a healing reaction in our own body from too many toxins in our air, water, food, environment...and when we are old or very unwell with several comorbidities, the body has a difficult time getting rid of the mucus and we die. In my opinion people who die in long term care at the same time are going through such a crisis at the same time. That it is not spread from room to room. Thus, I was asking what they really died from as per the Northwood Presser Note FOIPOP because it is stated that they were at the end of life and were instructed to mark them down as COVID. I am very surprised that there is no FOIPOP response to that one.

The PRC technology (it is not a test) is being run at too high re Cycle Thresholds and will pick up anything – and is useless – doesn’t show that you are contagious as per the words of the inventor. Thus in this case it creates false positives. In the USA they no longer use the test. It stopped December 31, 2021. In my opinion they are all false positives. It is not to be used to diagnose disease. The inventor Kary Mullis, spoke out against Fauci about this and was found dead in 2019.

So even though I sensed that the NSHA found the question bazaar...I was interested in the response! What proof or record is there that it is being transmitted from one person to another? I don’t think they could make it spread from one person to another. When families get sick in the same household, they are usually eating the same stuff, get run down etc. It was interesting – I worked in a Youth Health Centre in a high school and all the sick children were sent to my room. I never got sick. My hubby gets sick – I never get sick.

When I look at who died of this...they were very sick – most at the end of life. Yes – there are lots of cases – but I don’t believe the test – and if I did, there is over a 99% recovery in Nova Scotia based on the figures that I have. I know that your position is to only facilitate the process of doing FOIPOPs...but just wanted to clarify the reasoning behind the question.

Kind regards,

Shelly

A BIT ABOUT ME.

Like many people in Nova Scotia I knew that they were lying and making up rules that were nonsense. I waited for the media to dive deep into the data to no avail. So I got started...I made requests for government information on-line through a process called 'FOIPOP.' The Premiers (three Premier's were in office during the two years) and Strang (he does not deserve to have Dr. in front of his name) were putting on a fear inducing 'show' and I felt that we deserved to know the truth.

Don’t get me wrong, when this started I was cautious but questioned things. I had lived and worked in Japan and backpacked through China for several months. When I watched the footage of what was happening over there - to me - it felt staged. I reflected on being in a market in China and there was a dead woman laying there stiff - her purse untouched. I watch in shock as people just carried on as if she wasn't there. People 'dead in the streets due to COVID-19' could have been a compilation of such images...after all did we see anyone drop dead here? No - most were in long term care and at the end of life.

So when things don’t make sense...or government is contradicting itself...I feel that I have an obligation to speak out. Yes, it is uncomfortable but necessary.

I recall the first words I put on my Facebook page when I started to look at the data – they don’t care about our health – “This is all about a vaccine” – that pretty much sums it up.It ends up that these ‘safe and effective vaccines’ are useless...no one is immune after all...and now people are starting to question if people are getting sick due to ‘COVID’ or because the vaccine has harmed people's health.

In my opinion this was an emotional and stressful rollar coaster ride for thousands of us. It still chokes me up to tell you that I was not allowed to say good-bye to my 92 year old dying mother-in-law who was in my life for over 20 years. My hubby and his sister had helped her into a vehicle to take her to hospital to have her ‘checked out’ as she was growing very frail and she never returned home. Her final weeks were spent in Yarmouth and Roseway Hospital and I never saw her alive again. I called Yarmouth Hospital; I phoned and emailed my MLA for Shelburne, Nolan Young. I wrote letters to the premier and Strang. I sent emails to Nova Scotia Health...all to no avail. There was either no response or the answer was 'no' because I had decided, based on my research - that the vaccine was a health risk.

The outcome of this decision was that I was not allowed in a hospital to hold her hand to give thanks for having her in my life - to say good-bye. Some may have a different point of view - but to me this is cruel and a horrible way to treat human beings who are losing a loved one.

At the end of the day...what did all of this accomplish but harm.

So for those of you who wondered what data they were using to base all their decisions and “Orders” on I have acquired some of that data for you – it’s government information that I have posted below...and in my opinion - what they did to us was totally unjustified. I have shared with you a very different story than what you were told. You can decide.

To those Nova Scotia premiers who were in the limelight and used their power inappropriately to spread fear and to advance a political narrative instead of providing a foundation of reassurance and hope, to Dr. Robert Strang who demanded behaviours in conflict with social norms, disregarded the rights of others, was unable to distinguish between right and wrong, had difficulty showing remorse and empathy, had a tendency to only provide one side of the story, manipulated data and hurt others, had a general disregard towards people and self-responsibility as if we were dimwits, expressed anger and arrogance on a regular basis all with a superficial charm, and failed to take provincial data into account, and to journalists and reporters who called people ‘anti-this and anti-that,’ invoked shame, and caused the unnecessary escalation of unwarranted fear and did disastrous investigative journalism – there are no words to adequately describe the assault and harm that you all have caused to hundreds of thousands of us – for a ‘virus’ (if it exists) has a 99.57% recovery in Nova Scotia.

WHAT'S A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (FOIPOP) REQUEST?

The Province’s website states: "Nova Scotia is the first province in Canada to enact a Freedom of Information (FOIPOP) Act. They claim, "The act is a formal process to obtain access to records under the control of the provincial government."

Why do they have an Act? So that they can use a bunch of loopholes to NOT provide you with the data that you have requested. It's like pulling teeth. It gives a host of extra government workers permanent employment blocking a citizen’s right to information that belongs in the public domain in the first place. Then you have to justify why you want the fees waived. Yes, they can charge you big bucks for your request and will do so even when you state that you can not afford it, while they are being paid with our tax dollars to do the work. They can also extend it up to 60 days if they want to draw out the process. The premier's office doesn't even respect the process and went over deadlines, the responses were off topic and there is no reprocussion. It’s $5 and in my opinion should be free.
