Every year since the first influenza epidemic at the end of WWI people have died from the flu. In those first days, before any people had acquired any natural antibodies, the death toll was staggering. But in more recent decades, the flu tended to only affect persons with prior existing co-morbidities such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer or cancer treatments (which can suppress the immune system).
The way Covid-19 has been portrayed by both governments and the media had most of us huddling in our homes with fear. We were all told that the hospitals would be overrun and the dead would be stacked in the streets like during the medieval Black Plague. Extraordinary measures that infringed upon our constitutional rights have been justified as necessary for the “public good.”
But now that we have endured almost two years of this, with no end in sight, let us look at one very important statistic: the overall death counts and death rates in Canada.
This first graph of Total Deaths in Canada shows us the same steady increase in deaths during Covid as during the few years prior. Where is the spike in deaths that we were told Covid produced?
I didn’t make this up. This chart is by an organization called Statista. You can find this same chart for yourself with a Google image search for “Canada Deaths by year.”
Hmmm! Where are all those excess deaths we were told were happening due to this pandemic?
Now let’s go directly to StatCan data.
This is a screen shot I got directly off the StatCan website. It took me quite a while to find it. I’m sorry I didn’t have the presence of mind to copy the URL so I could share it here. But I promise I did not make it up or doctor it in the least.
If you look at the last column you will not that the Death Rate per 1000 of the population in 2012 was 6.9. And the Death Rate per 1000 Population for 2020 was not even a full percent point higher.
Here us a different chart I also found on StatCan.
This is another screen shot of a graph right off the StatCan website. Again, I apologize for not copying the exact URL. But I did not change this at all either.
What? 2020 was the year we were told how many thousands were dropping like flies of Covid.
Oh wait! You can see more of a rise between 2019 and 2020 but it looks about the same as the rise between 2014 and 2015.
How is that possible if the media were telling the truth? Is StatCan lying or the media? You choose.
I dug some more and found these different stats on StatCan with actual death numbers. You will note that the time spans for these are each a pair of years, perhaps to cover the “Flu Season’ of each winter. I made this chart of the data I found on StaCan.
Either the stats are wrong or we have been lied to. If it is the latter, the necessary cooperation must have been extensive or it would have been exposed long before now. Who would need to be involved? At the minimum, our federal and provincial government leaders, our hospital system and our news media.
We will tackle each of these sectors in future episodes.
But the inescapable fact is that both Canada’s death counts and our death rates have NOT shown any real pandemic. And yet look at the destruction of businesses, disruption of families and violation of our rights has been done for what can only be called a sham.
