Right in the centre - Lift the veil of fear and secrecy


By Ken Waddell

Neepawa Banner & Press

This Christmas greetings edition of the paper is printed in a tradition that has been going on for over 100 years for this paper. Businesses, organizations and individuals take a moment to offer thanks to customers and friends and extend best wishes for the Christmas season and the New Year. At the Banner, we add our since best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. May this special season and the New Year, 2022 be a blessing to all who read this paper. We thank our readers and customers for supporting us. Between the two Banner papers, Neepawa and Rivers, our message goes to over 25,000 people in print and is read worldwide on the internet.

We hope the simple message about baby Jesus, born to be our Saviour, brings truth and love at a time when we need it so badly. I am going to do something in this column that I don’t know if I have ever done before. If I have, it’s been rare in the 32 years of writing this column. Let me explain. We often read in main line media that a person has been quoted who “is not authorized to speak publicly on a topic,” or we often read “this person only could speak on the condition of anonymity for fear of losing their job.” I hate those statements but the rest of this column is dedicated to statements that people have made to me that can only be put in print without a name attached because they would lose their job. I think that is terrible that our society is so enslaved to bureaucracy and silencing that we have to be afraid for our jobs when we speak out an opinion or facts as we know them. I will let the readers judge  the following parts of this column but it will show we need a major shake-up in Manitoba and across Canada. If the suppression of information and facts continues, we are in for a rebellion and I don’t want to see that. I would much rather see the truth spoken without fear or retribution and let the people decide how to assess what is going on once they have been armed with truth.

•Doctors and health care workers are not allowed, yes, you read that correctly, not allowed to speak out on C-19 for fear of losing their jobs or medical license.

•Doctors will say publicly that there is no treatment for C-19, you can only treat the symptoms. That is only partly true. Reliable Manitoba doctors have told me about a few different treatments.

•One method brought to my attention is to use a nebulizer with pharmaceutical grade hydrogen peroxide which can be used for essentially any respiratory ailment including those caused by viruses. If you want more information on this you can email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

•A well known doctor told me that being infected with C-19 gives better and longer acting protection than the vaccines. Manitoba Health hasn’t recognized that yet it seems.

•I have been told that the new drug to treat C-19 from Pfizer has good results, but, ironically, it operates in much the same way as Ivermectin, which has been denounced and mocked.

•There are many drugs that are cheap and efficient but are not being used and that is bothering and puzzling many doctors, but they can’t speak out or they will lose their license.

•The surgical and procedures backlog now stand at over 150,000. That’s 11 per cent of the population of Manitoba is waiting for surgery, a procedure or test. That means heart and cancer patients are at immense risk of a shortened life as heart disease and cancer waits for no one. One doctor said the death rate will be much higher in the next few years as cancer surgery delayed means the surgery is much more difficult and less effective as the cancer spreads. Cancers have been spreading for a year or more now as the health system is being crippled not so much by C-19 as by the rules.

•Manitoba risks losing surgeons and specialists as they can go to the United States where the rules are not as strict (or as stupid I my words, not the doctors). If surgeons or specialists leave Manitoba now, they won’t be back.

•It has been suggested to me that I should run the following ad: “Wanted: 50 doctors to band together to approach our provincial government to demand that Manitoba Public Health (MPH) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba (CPSM) provide leadership as to the basic narratives of medical ethics as they pertain to the age old concepts of full disclosure and informed consent. Many successful, globally accessible, treatment options are being denied citizens and patients of the province - failure to disclose must result in government dissolution of the CPSM and calling upon all those leading the MPH to appear before MPs in session to justify their Covid strategies position. It is unconscionable and unethical that physicians are not permitted to treat Covid patients in the early stages of infection (a basic tenet of medicine) without fear of loss of licensure.

•That proposed ad is pretty severe but everybody is working their hardest in the battle against C-19. But it doesn’t matter how hard we fight if we aren’t allowed to use the available tools, intelligence and ammunition that is available.

•Over this Christmas season, I challenge MPH and CPSM to lift the veil of fear and secrecy so we can all participate in accessing real solutions.

•May God bless and keep us in the power of truth and love.
