A Canadian surgeon has been fired from his position at the University of Saskatchewan and suspended from teaching after expressing concerns about Covid-19 vaccine safety.
Dr. Francis Christian, Clinical Professor of General Surgery, released a statement on June 17 noting that he is pro-vaccine but stating that the principle of "informed consent" are being violated. According to medical ethics, patients should be made “fully aware of the risks of the medical intervention, the benefits of the intervention, and if any alternatives exist to the intervention.” However, as Dr. Christian notes, this is not being done in many instances with Covid-19 vaccinations.
Dr. Christian stated that he was not come across “a single vaccinated child or parent who has been adequately informed” about Covid vaccines for children.
Five days after he made his statement, Dr. Christian was contacted by the Saskatchewan Health Authority/College of Medicine. In a letter, the Health Authority stated that it had “received information that you are engaging in activities designed to discourage and prevent children and adolescents from receiving Covid-19 vaccination contrary to the recommendations and pandemic-response efforts of Saskatchewan and Canadian public health authorities.”
Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is representing Dr. Christian. The Centre's Litigation Director, Jay Cameron, cautions about the "growing censorship of medical professionals when it comes to questioning the government narrative on Covid."
We are seeing a clear pattern of highly competent and skilled medical doctors in very esteemed positions being taken down and censored or even fired, for practicing proper science and medicine.Jay Cameron, Litigation Director, Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms
Surgeon fired by College of Medicine for voicing safety concerns about Covid shots for children
SASKATCHEWAN: The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms represents Dr. Francis Christian, Clinical Professor of General Surgery at the University of Saskatchewan and a practising surgeon in Saskatoon. Dr. Christian was called into a meeting today, suspended from all teaching responsibilities effective immediately, and fired from his position with the University of Saskatchewan as of September 2021.
There is a recording of Dr. Christian’s meeting today between Dr. Christian and Dr. Preston Smith, the Dean of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan, College of Medicine, Dr. Susan Shaw, the Chief Medical Officer of the Saskatchewan Health Authority, and Dr. Brian Ulmer, Head of the Department of Surgery at the Saskatchewan College of Medicine.
In addition, the Justice Centre will represent Dr. Christian in his defence of a complaint that was made against him and an investigation by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan. The complaint objects to Dr. Christian having advocated for the informed consent of Covid vaccines for children.
Dr. Christian has been a surgeon for more than 20 years and began working in Saskatoon in 2007. He was appointed Director of the Surgical Humanities Program and Director of Quality and Patient Safety in 2018 and co-founded the Surgical Humanities Program. Dr. Christian is also the Editor of the Journal of The Surgical Humanities.
On June 17, Dr. Christian released a statement to over 200 doctors which contained his concerns regarding giving the Covid shots to children. In it he noted that he is pro-vaccine, and that he did not represent any group, the Saskatchewan Health Authority, or the University of Saskatchewan. “I speak to you directly as a physician, a surgeon, and a fellow human being.” Dr. Christian noted that the principle of informed consent was sacrosanct and noted that a patient should always be “fully aware of the risks of the medical intervention, the benefits of the intervention, and if any alternatives exist to the intervention.”
“This should apply particularly to a new vaccine that has never before been tried in humans… before the vaccine is rolled out to children, both children and parents must know the risks of m-RNA vaccines,” he wrote.
Dr. Christian expressed concern that he had not come across “a single vaccinated child or parent who has been adequately informed” about Covid vaccines for children.
Among his points, he stated that:
- The m-RNA vaccine, is a new, experimental vaccine never used by humans before.
- The m-RNA vaccines have not been fully authorized by Health Canada or the US CDC, and are in fact under “interim authorization” in Canada and “emergency use authorization” in the US. He noted that “full vaccine approval takes several years and multiple safety considerations – this has not happened.”
- That in order to qualify for “emergency use authorization” there must be an emergency. While he said there is a strong case for vaccinating the elderly, the vulnerable and health care workers, he said, “Covid does not pose a threat to our kids. The risk of them dying of Covid is less than 0.003% – this is even less than the risk of them dying of the flu. There is no emergency in children.”
- Children do not readily transmit the Covid virus to adults.
- M-RNA vaccines have been “associated with several thousand deaths” in the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System in the US. “These appear to be unusual, compared to the total number of vaccines administered.” He called it a “strong signal that should not be ignored.”
- He noted that vaccines have already caused “serious medical problems for kids” worldwide, including “a real and significantly increased risk” of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart. Dr. Christian notes the German national vaccine agency and the UK vaccine agency are not recommending the vaccine for healthy children and teenagers.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority/College of Medicine wrote a letter to Dr. Christian on June 21, 2021, alleging that they had “received information that you are engaging in activities designed to discourage and prevent children and adolescents from receiving Covid-19 vaccination contrary to the recommendations and pandemic-response efforts of Saskatchewan and Canadian public health authorities.”
Dr. Christian’s concerns regarding underage Covid vaccinations are not isolated to him. The US Centre for Disease Control had an “emergency meeting” today to discuss the growing cases of myocarditis (heart inflammation) in younger males after receiving the Covid-19 vaccines.
The CDC released new data today that the risk of myocarditis after the Pfizer vaccine is at least 10 times the expected rate in 12 – 17 year old males and females. The German government has issued public guidance against vaccinating those under the age of 18.
The World Health Organization posted an update to its website on Monday, June 21, which contained the statement in respect of advice for Covid-19 vaccination that “Children should not be vaccinated for the moment.” Within 24 hours, this guidance was withdrawn and new guidance was posted which stated that “Covid vaccines are safe for those over 18 years of age.”
Dr. Christian says there is a large, growing “network of ethical, moral physicians and scientists” who are urging caution in recommending vaccines for all children without informed consent. He said, physicians must “always put their patients and humanity first.”
Dr. Byram Bridle, a prominent immunologist at the University of Guelph with a sub-speciality in vaccinology, recently participated in a Press Conference on Parliament Hill on CPAC organized by MP Derek Sloan, where he discussed the censorship of scientists and physicians. Dr. Bridle expressed his safety concerns with vaccinating children with experimental MRNA vaccines.
Justice Centre Litigation Director Jay Cameron also has concern over the growing censorship of medical professionals when it comes to questioning the government narrative on Covid. “We are seeing a clear pattern of highly competent and skilled medical doctors in very esteemed positions being taken down and censored or even fired, for practicing proper science and medicine,” says Mr. Cameron.
The Justice Centre represented Dr. Chris Milburn in Nova Scotia, who faced professional disciplinary proceedings last year after a group of activists took exception to an opinion column he wrote in a local paper. The Justice Centre provided submissions to the College on Dr. Milburn’s behalf, defending the right of physicians to express their opinions on matters of policy in the public square and arguing that everyone is entitled to freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, as guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms – including doctors. The Justice Centre noted that attempting to have a doctor professionally disciplined for his opinions and commentary on matters of public interest amounts to bullying and intimidation for speaking out against the government.
Last week, Dr. Milburn also faced punishment for speaking out with his concerns about public health policies, as he was removed from his position as the Head of Emergency for the eastern zone with the Nova Scotia Health Authority. In an unusual twist, a petition has been started to have Dr. Milburn replace Dr. Strang as the province’s Chief Medical Officer.
“Censoring and punishing scientists and doctors for freely voicing their concerns is arrogant, oppressive and profoundly unscientific”, states Mr. Cameron.
“Both the western world and the idea of scientific inquiry itself is built to a large extent on the principles of freedom of thought and speech. Medicine and patient safety can only regress when dogma and an elitist orthodoxy, such as that imposed by the Saskatchewan College of Medicine, punishes doctors for voicing concerns,” Mr. Cameron concludes.
Roger Reid says
Dr Milburn is absolutely correct. As a vulnerable person I believe only those at risk should be vaccinated. Shutting down businesses should have never happened. It would certainly appear that the cure may be or is more dangerous than the illness.

Ok ,that's it some people are clearly going to be responsible for the extra deaths ...,beyond,those of the naturalapprox14^ to 22 thousand that die every year from the common cold people.

Thankyou for your hard work everyone; is there a way to send encouraging words to these Dr's
My goodness; I follow Derek Sloan as well and Ezra LEvant; I wish I had money to give everyone.
Anything else I can do?
Officially, the number of deaths linked to the COVID vaccines is 6,000 (VAERS database). Steve Kirsch, a tech entrepeneru, who got vaccinated and now deeply regrets it, thinks the real number is 26,000 and the CDC is censoring VAERS.
Dr. Peter McCullough claims a CDC whistleblower told him the real number is 50,000 deaths!
The vaccines are far more dangerous than COVID-19 itself. COVID-19 is a scam-demic given that the tests are garbage. The real goal of COVID-19 scaremongering seems to have been to justify vaccinating everyone- this is why safe+effective+cheap treatments like HCQ/zinc, Ivermectin and plain old Vitamin D were suppressed, so the "emergency" usage of vaccines could be justified.
VAERS deaths are only the tip of the iceberg. This 4-minute video shows how to download the true vaccine-related death rate from the CDC:
Nicole Smith says
The video is "not found" - any other way to get it?
“received information that you are engaging in activities designed to discourage and prevent children and adolescents from receiving Covid-19 vaccination contrary to the recommendations and pandemic-response efforts of Saskatchewan and Canadian public health authorities.”
Well, informed consent does do that....it discourages people from getting vaccinated.
Knowledge is power, etc.
Mindless bureaucrats gotta be mindless bureaucrats.
They are too stupid to understand that their goal is supposed to be public safety, not mindlessly adhering to protocol and filling out Form 74B/D16-46/DEX.14/26B properly.
Karen Rankin says
Over 500 doctors have signed a petition to stop the EAU of this vaccine. They deem it too unsafe, after all of the reports of injuries and deaths, across the US and around the world. Some doctors have been very vocal, and are furious that this vaccine is still being pushed for ages 12 and older, to receive. Many say those under 12 should never get this vaccine, and pregnant women should never get this vaccine.
I admire these doctors for speaking out regarding their concerns. May many continue to speak out on the dangers of this vaccine! God bless their efforts!
You did all read that the 1st doctor in the article is pro vaccine right?
Not sure about the others
The YouTube video on the press conference organized by MP Derek Sloan that had discussion of censorship of scientists and physicians (link in the article above) has been itself censored. It seems to have violated YouTube Community standards.
Thank you so much for all this info... I'm one of the people these doctors are fighting for, I, have absolutely no medical training and struggled.to her my head around what is really happening. I have a healthy curiosity, but that alone would not have saved me from the covid marketing campaign. The brave doctors and scientists who have broken rank and shared their knowledge have saved my family from vaccine harm. I have transitioned from a place of paralysing covid fear to protesting in the streets. Bless you all and the legal teams and other supporters you have, May they grow in number.
Up until a week ago I was also a person that thought the government was doing what they needed to do to keep people safe. Then my sister woke me up. I now know that the government is lying to us, spreading propaganda, pushing a vaccine that isn't safe, and hasn't been adequately tested (even though they told us it was), and trying to silence anyone who speaks out. They are pointedly keeping other treatments that can save people's lives hidden from the public, they are punishing doctors who prescribe it, and telling pharmacies not to dispense it. They do this to artificially keep the covid numbers high, and to push the vaccine, and so they can continue with their fear mongering. They are trying their hardest to keep us afraid, so we will continue to comply with everything they tell us to do. They are violating our rights, and the majority of us are happily letting them do it. Unfortunately I did not wake up in time to save me, and my son, from the vaccine. I would never had gotten it if I had known then what I know now, and I definitely wouldn't have let them give it to my son. Some people will never wake up, no matter how much evidence you show them of what is happening. This is because of something called mass formation, which is sort of a type of mass hypnosis. I am very glad for the doctors and scientists for speaking out, without them I may never have woken up, and start seeing what is actually going on. We all need to try and wake people up, whomever we can. The sheep are the ones that will never wake up, but that's okay, we don't need to spend our energy trying to wake up the sheep, instead we need to wake up the lions.
My fellow Canadian’s and our American brothers and sisters.
It is easy to see whenever a government begins to mandate to you, what you can put in your own bodies without informed consent , while silencing the real professionals , and their real life experiences. You have now began living in a communist dictatorship . But we are not we are Canadian ( Remember The True North Strong And Free ). With that expertise why would a
government that is supposedly for it’s people , be constantly threatening our doctors for speaking their truths. and removing our unalienable rights ( given to us by god) it is absolutely crucial to hold on to our freedoms that we never indulge such blatant intimidation tactics against our doctors. Just the opposite they should be encouraged to share the numbers and stories with the people, so they can make an informed and educated decision. With threats to their careers, reputations, many doctors in Canada have and continue to issue dire warnings about these unproven vaccines because they took an oath ( Hippocratic oath) to us their patients , to protect them. Unfortunately many doctors and surgeons in Canada continue to shut up instead of stand up , and not honestly inform their patients of the dangers of taking an unproven vaccine. I believe they will be held to account and not just in the history books . They only give a one sided government mandated script , that they must abide by even though it goes against their oath and nuremberg code ( I believe section 120 of the Nuremberg code ) crimes against humanity ( which is exactly what our government is doing ) . !!! In my educated opinion. and how our gvt. has become so tyrannical, and oppressive . Bit by bit taking away our god given rights and freedoms and using COVID as the distraction, this is the tool that takes our eyes off the real objective which I believe the goal is to erode are rights away completely so they have total control of the population. This is going on globally due some homework ( ten or fifteen minutes is all it takes ) you will see the biases of the mainstream media on display for all to see. The mandate protest going on all over the world (not shown on mainstream media as they want you to believe everyone is ok with these illegal lockdowns and mandates not following the science but making it up as they go, imagine politicians and self declared poliscience) as they try to bring us into a global gvt. With complete control of the population. We Are Being Deceived by a government that couldn’t run around the block ( true doh really ! it’s not his fault that he’s about as sharp as the edge of town but so many things are as he has sold us out one lie one scandal after the other) let alone a country of 40 million people . Remember this is not an approved vaccine it has not been approved except for emergency use. In other words it is an experiment and we are the mice. If you question this it’s good thing but please for ten or fifteen minutes take that time an go into rumbl you search and you will find you can get information from both sides of these issues just search and read . Try “Canadian doctors speak out on COVID” articles and video’s I am sure you will be shocked!!!. Before I end if you don’t believe what I am saying , call your life insurance company and ask if you will be covered if you die from taking the vaccine. You might be very surprised at the response you get . Please people this isn’t about politics ( liberal or conservative, and others don’t let our government divide us it is what they want, and are doing so well ) . Remember your mom and dad telling you “don’t believe everything you hear” “ if your friend jumps off a cliff are you going to follow “ how about “ something about this doesn’t pass the sniff test “ all good advice still today Red , yellow , black and white ,Democrat or liberal god loves us all and he doesn’t do politics. God bless Canada and god bless Canadians. Pray for our brothers and sisters in America and both of our great countries. One last comment this just came into me !!! They are talking now about forcing people who have not taken the vaccine to be required to wear a yellow wrist band. For the younger people who do not know a lot about the Second World War , FYI one of the first things implemented in the begging stages of the holocaust was for all Jews to be mandated to wear the yellow Star of David on their arm the tattoos came later for the detention camps . Past always reflects present. Much love and peace to whoever might find and read this .
I agree with you completely, but just a week ago I wouldn't have seen it, but then my sister woke me up. What they are doing is wrong, and I believe that one way to show them, and others, that we are not complying, is to stop wearing a mask, and to not use a vaccine passport, even if we can. The people see us and other people not wearing masks, the more people will know that not everyone agrees with what the government is doing, and it might even give them the courage to take off their masks as well. We should support the restaurants and businesses that refuse to comply. One thing you said is that peyote should do their own research, and look at both sides, but a funny thing happened when I tried to search for things on the Google search bar. The only sites that came up were government sites, and sites promoting the same narrative. No sites came up with opposing views. I had to actually go to "duckduckgo" to find the opposing views and science. The government and tech giants are already using sensorship to keep us from finding out the truth, and to hide the truth from us. It is just so unbelievably wrong for Canada to be doing this, and for Canadians to be letting it happen.
William David Tiptom says
leftists no longer believe in REAL science. The global 'warming' agenda put the final nail into that coffin, lmao. You are no longer allowed to ask questions about anything the agenda asserts.....gender, environment, virus origin, vaccines.....ANYTHING they are pushing is off limits.
the morons fail to comprehend that telling us all that we cant ask questions just enforces the idea that we're right that they ARE up to something nefarious..
IF they werent, they'd WELCOME the questions and the challenge to their assertions and views.
Tom Harris says
I listened to the "meeting" at https://www.dropbox.com/s/5rv1galfv8npa3g/2021-06-23_08-26-55.wav?dl=0 and was disgusted to hear how Doctor Christian is being treated for simply standing up for informed consent. I hope this is sent far and wide and these medical totalitarians held to account.
Randy Hickey says
Well lets see. To go over the lies, propaganda, censorship, in your face hypocrisy, senseless control measures and other very evil diversion tactics at this point would be useless to wake any of the subjects. I will simply point out the needless deaths and destruction. Suicide increased through the roof, increased overdoses, turned away critical surgeries (yes indeed), neglected/ intentionally infected LTC elders (yes 100%), decreased life expectancy due to stress, depression, breathing your own bacteria never to be accounted for, and finally deaths due to the jab which we will also never know the full total. Then of course there's the utter destruction of economies, missed education, livelihoods destroyed, businesses, families and the unforgivable trauma on our children is the worst. My wife and son got the "so called" vaccine behind my back. They both tested positive for covid. I treated them with Buckley's cold and flu, hugs and chicken soup. 2 days later they were better with a slight loss of taste and smell for a couple more days. Unvaxed I never caught it. I've been out of work for 2 years now because of this garbage. I worked hard my entire life supporting my family. Now I simply don't know if I can face humanity again. I say this as we're down to using my sons RESP's to keep mortgage. I guess the only thing to take away is how dangerous liberal ideologies are to us all. My heart will never heal. To the future readers ... Covid was a lie.
