  • A Yale University study published in JAMA (Sayed et al.) finds that 57% of US doctors received payments from Pharma firms over the past decade, totalling 12 billion USD. The average amount paid to the top .1% of orthopedists was $4,826,944. For the top .1% of cardiologists, it was $3,197,675, and for the top .1% of neurologists and psychiatrists, it was $2,588,819. The drugs related to the highest industry payments were blood thinners Xarelto and Eliquis, followed by Humira, to treat psoriasis, and Invokana and Jardiance—both used to treat type 2 diabetes.
  • Food Banks Canada’s annual poverty report card finds that food bank visits have increased by 50% since 2021. The report also found that one in four Canadians have unstable or inadequate access to food.
  • Parks Canada announces a new policy allowing “newcomers to Canada and new Canadian citizens” free admission for a year to all national parks, historic sites, and marine conservation areas. However, if you’re already a tax paying citizen, you’ll be paying full price (about $75 for a single adult or $151 for a family).

  • AstraZeneca withdrew its COVID-19 vaccine globally after its phase three clinical trial data revealed that 1 in 9 people experienced an adverse event and 1 in 35 participants experienced a serious adverse event. The company has faced a mountain of lawsuits worldwide and has recently admitted in court that its COVID-19 vaccine can cause a unique condition that can lead to blood clots.
  • A new Cleveland Clinic study concludes that, “consistent with similar findings in many prior studies, a higher number of prior vaccine doses was associated with a higher risk of COVID-19. The exact reason for this finding is not clear. It is possible that this may be related to the fact that vaccine-induced immunity is weaker and less durable than natural.” —Clin Infect Dis (Shrestha et al.) 
  • Scientists trying to reinfect people with the COVID-19 virus so they could test vaccines and treatments found high levels of immunity made it nearly impossible, according to results from the COVID-19 “Human Challenge” trials in the UK. As Brian Hooker, chief scientific officer for Children’s Health Defense put it, “The results show the power of natural immunity as compared to the many breakthrough infections in vaccinated individuals …  Any assertion that vaccination-based immunity is more powerful than natural immunity is complete lunacy—the acquired immune system is a beautiful thing and vaccination is a much less effective substitute.”
  • After years of denial, an NIH official has finally admitted that taxpayers funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan. At long last, National Institutes of Health (NIH) principal deputy director Lawrence Tabak admitted to Congress on May 16th that US taxpayers funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China in the months and years preceding the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Internal emails from the National Institute of Health show Dr. David Morens, Fauci’s senior advisor, was actively shielding certain communications from being accessible through FOIA requests. In Moren’s emails, acquired by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic in Washington, he mentioned that certain topics, such as the Wuhan lab connection, should only be discussed on his personal Gmail account to avoid FOIA requests.
  • Loblaws and Sobeys’ parent companies are under investigation by Competition Bureau Canada for alleged anti-competitive conduct. The commissioner claims grocery giants’ designed their lease agreements to restrict other potential tenants and their activities, thus hampering competition in the grocery market.
  • The BC government has introduced legislation to prevent protests around schools. While the new legislation is aimed to “keep kids safe and focused on their education by preventing disruptive behaviour,” the BC government ironically continues to place social issues, such as gender identity, inside the classroom.
  • The EU’s European Council has followed the European Parliament in approving the “Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act” —an act that essentially legalizes biometric mass surveillance in the bloc. The AI Act will also permit many forms of emotion recognition—AI systems that claim to know what we are thinking.
  • A group of West Virginia female middle-schoolers who protested a transgender athlete’s participation in their track and field competition have been barred from future meets for defending their right to have only biological females participate in female-only events.
  • No evidence COVID-19 vaccines stopped transmission when authorized, Canadian Federal Government confirmsThe Health Minister’s representative in the House of Commons has just confirmed that “at the time of initial authorization of the first COVID-19 vaccines … there was no reported evidence on the efficacy of the authorized COVID-19 vaccine to prevent asymptomatic infection, to reduce viral shedding, or to prevent transmission.” Despite this fact, public health messaging suggested that herd immunity was only achievable through mass vaccination.
  • US CDC officials had indeed found evidence that the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines had caused multiple deaths before publicly claiming that there was no evidence linking the vaccines to any deaths, according to an internal file obtained via a FOIA request by The Epoch Times.
  • Patrick Provost, a professor and biochemist with 35 years of research experience in the areas of genomics, lipid nanoparticles, and RNA, has been fired from Quebec City’s Université Laval over his criticisms of the Covid-19 vaccine. Professor Provost’s firing stemmed from him stating that he believed the risks of COVID-19 vaccination in children outweigh the benefits because of the potential side-effects from mRNA vaccines.
  • After two cases in the US and another in Australia, US federal health officials are ramping up efforts to combat what they claim is the growing threat of H5N1 bird flu. The US Department of Health and Human Services has announced that officials are moving forward with a plan to produce 4.8 million doses of H5N1 avian flu vaccine for pandemic preparedness. FDA Commissioner Robert Califf warned that a potential bird flu pandemic could “be ten times worse” than COVID, despite the only two US cases of human bird flu presenting as pinkeye.
  • Pfizer Inc. has agreed to settle more than 10,000 lawsuit cases accusing the Pharma giant of hiding the cancer risks of its Zantac heartburn drug. The FDA confirmed that Zantac was carcinogenic in 2020 and ordered drugmakers to take all versions of the medicine off the market.
  • While Ontario does not cover most sleep apnea surgeries and many jaw surgeries, an Ontario resident who wants both a vagina and penis wins public funding for unique surgery. A court has ruled Ontario must pay for a penis-sparing vaginoplasty for a person who identifies as neither fully female nor fully male. Denying the procedure would infringe on the person’s Charter-protected right to security of the person, an Ontario court said in its ruling.
  • Hypocrisy at its finest: Mark Zuckerberg, a vocal critic of “human-induced climate change,” just purchased a new $300 million, 287-foot mega yacht, powered by four massive diesel engines. Zuckerberg reportedly purchased the yacht, which requires a whopping $30 million a year in annual upkeep, as a 40th birthday present to himself.
