Just to follow up on this. Yesterday I was so offended by Ms. Ireland’s article that I didn’t even think to perform a conflict of interest check. Today, however, with the objectivity of cold eyes, I would like to point out the following:
Neither Dr. Banerji, or Dr. Martinez, the two “experts” cited by Ms. Ireland, appear to be mental health experts from their online biographies. And indeed, Dr. Banerji unfortunately sustained the suicide of her adoptive son in 2018, so any claim to be an expert in identifying or treating depression in youth is not borne out by this very tragic evidence. (As someone who has experienced suicide on two very personal levels, I can certainly empathize with Dr. Banerji – but that does not excuse her from waxing poetic on a subject that is not her expertise.)
In addition, Dr. Banerji is employed by the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (“DLSPH”) and, as Ms. Ireland is no doubt aware, DLSPH “receives funding from government, philanthropic, not for profit and private sector organizations. Private sector funding sources include vaccine manufacturers.” When one pokes further, DLSPH discloses “engaged partnerships” with the World Health Organization and Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, which is partnered by the WHO, UNICEF, the World Bank and the Gates Foundation. Gavi accepts donations from “corporate partners; . . . vaccine manufacturers; . . . research and technical institutes; and implementing country governments.” (https://www.gavi.org/our-alliance/about) One need only start googling terms like “Gavi”, along with “Pfizer”, or “Moderna” to see the level of duplicity and collusion that is happening in plain sight. I trust I don’t even have to explain my concerns with any organization affiliating with Bill Gates, who, along with Dr. Fauci, is potentially the most dangerous megalomaniac in the world at present.
19 of the 27 members of the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table (“Science Table”) are employed either by DLSPH or to the University of Toronto directly. Many members of the Science Table have been redflagged for their acceptance of funding by Big Pharma, the most notorious being Dr. David Fisman, who has received honorariums from several pharmaceutical companies, including our favourite mRNA vaccine manufacturers. Dr. Fisman, as you are likely aware, has been a COVID-19 doomsday preacher from the beginning, notwithstanding that none of his predictions or modeling have ever even entered the realm of reality. Other members of the Science Table have financial interests in promoting lockdowns and have made money hand over fist in the past 20 months.
I briefly looked at the Canadian Paediatric Society’s website to determine whether Dr. Martinez has any obvious conflicts of interest. However, that website does a much better job of hiding its conflicts of interest than DLSPH. Perhaps a Freedom of Information Request by the CBC is in order? (You’ll have to excuse my perverse sense of humour, I know the likelihood of that happening is up there with Dr. Tam admitting that COVID-19 restrictions don’t work.)
Given these very clear conflicts of interest, and the likelihood that there are many more conflicts of which we are all unaware at present, I demand that the CBC publish a clarification on Ms. Ireland’s article disclosing the financial ties of all parties. I’m sure I’ve missed many more conflicts in my brief internet search, but again, I’m not a journalist who has a duty to interview objective members of society and, where it is apparently impossible to find someone who is not in bed with Big Pharma, to disclose their financial and political interests so that the masses understand that they are being fed a very specific narrative for a very specific reason.
