Dr. Henry,


A recap of the lifting of COVID-19 masking and vaccine mandates in Canada:

  • Alberta: February 8, 2022

  • Saskatchewan: February 14, 2022

  • Nova Scotia: February 28, 2022

  • PEI: February 28, 2022

  • Manitoba: March 1, 2022

  • Ontario: March 1, 2022

  • Quebec: March 14, 2022

  • New Brunswick: March 14, 2022

  • Newfoundland and Labrador: March 14, 2022

  • Yukon: March 18, 2022

  • NWT: (never had one)

  • Nunavut: (never had one)

  • British Columbia: Possibly June, 2022 – but don’t worry, it will only be temporary before we crush our citizens’ will to live again!

Health Canada advises that, on March 3, 2022, these were the following cases and deaths in Canada:

I’ve taken the liberty to adjust deaths per hundred thousand in each province that reported deaths:


BC – 0.28

AB – 0.17

MB – 0.23

ON – 0.14

QU – 0.29

NB – 0.26

NS – 0.22

YUK – 0

NWT - 0


I’m assuming you look at this chart, and say – well, British Columbia is almost as high as Quebec, we need to keep it locked down (even though Quebec is wide open)! However let’s play devil’s advocate: how do you know that BC’s high death rate isn’t a result of its draconian lockdown measures? It appears that BC is actually trending higher in deaths because of lockdown restrictions: of course, this avoids the real question, which is whether it is reasonable to restrict 5,000,000 peoples’ Charter rights for 13 daily deaths. Alternately, perhaps BC’s death rate is higher than average for the simple fact that we have the oldest population in Canada; it is bizarre that I, with one university statistics class under my belt, have probably spent more time analyzing this than your office.


I’ve also been trying to figure out why you and Mr. Horgan are intent on being the COVID-19 outliers of the world, and my best guess is that, you know when the restrictions lift, the inquests will start. I’d love for you to respond to that … but given your history of ignoring me, I’m not optimistic.


I’ll be in tomorrow’s convoy to Salmon Arm, maskless and vaxx-less as per usual, to show you and Mr. Horgan that British Columbians are, and will continue to be, indomitable. It’s really a miracle that I’m still alive, given my proclivity towards risky behaviour!


Hope to hear from you soon.
