Discover the contents of a secret memo that reveals the efforts of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office to develop communication strategies to combat negative perceptions of COVID vaccine side effects. Explore the implications of fudging statistics and learn about ongoing vaccine injury compensation battles.
In a shocking revelation, a secret memo from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Privy Council Office has come to light, exposing the government’s awareness of COVID vaccine-related injuries and their attempts to shape public opinion. The memo, titled “Testing Behaviourally Informed Messaging in Response to Severe Adverse Events Following Immunization,” emphasized the potential impact of adverse events on public confidence. This article delves into the memo’s details, shedding light on the strategies employed to sway public perception of COVID vaccine side effects.
The Influence of Adverse Events on Public Confidence
The memo highlighted that adverse effects following COVID vaccination, coupled with the government’s response, had the potential to shake public confidence in the vaccination rollout. It acknowledged that vaccine-related events could range from minor to severe. With this understanding, the memo underscored the need for proactive measures to address potential adverse events and devise winning communication strategies that would maximize public confidence in the government’s COVID regulatory regime.
Fudging Statistics and Wordplay
Surprisingly, the memo also suggested the use of wordplay to manipulate statistics surrounding COVID vaccine deaths and injuries. By employing phrases such as “the chance of it happening to me (COVID shot injury) is one in a million” instead of acknowledging specific instances, the government aimed to downplay the severity of adverse events. Comparisons to other risks, like car accidents, were also explored to minimize the perceived risk of vaccine injuries. However, this raises ethical concerns regarding transparency and the importance of informed decision-making.
Balancing Vaccine Safety and Public Confidence
Acknowledging the delicate balance between ensuring vaccine safety and promoting public awareness, the memo emphasized the need to maintain public confidence in the vaccine’s safety. This recognition reflects the challenges faced by governments worldwide in navigating the communication surrounding vaccine-related adverse events. Striking the right balance requires transparency, accurate reporting, and fostering trust among the public.
Vaccine Injury Support Program (VISP) and Compensation Battles
The Canadian government introduced the Vaccine Injury Support Program (VISP) alongside the approval of the first COVID shots in December 2020. VISP aimed to shield vaccine makers from liability for COVID vaccine-related injuries. However, as of now, only $2,779,277 has been paid out through VISP, leaving many vaccine-injured individuals seeking further compensation.
A recent lawsuit filed by Ross Wightman from British Columbia against AstraZeneca, the federal government of Canada, the provincial government, and the administering pharmacy highlights the ongoing struggle for fair compensation. Wightman experienced total paralysis after receiving the AstraZeneca shot and was subsequently diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). This case brings attention to the urgency of addressing the compensation needs of vaccine-injured individuals.
Lack of Mainstream Media Coverage
Throughout the COVID crisis, Canadian mainstream media barely touched upon the link between COVID vaccine side effects and the vaccines approved for use in Canada. Reports from the United Kingdom have shown a significant increase in Guillain-Barré Syndrome cases following AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccination. Despite these findings, most Canadian provinces quietly halted the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine shortly after its approval due to concerns about blood clotting.
The disclosure of the secret memo has shed light on the tactics employed by the Canadian government to influence public perception of COVID vaccine side effects. The memo’s suggestions of fudging statistics and using wordplay raise concerns about transparency and informed decision-making. Ongoing battles for fair compensation and the lack of mainstream media coverage further underscore the need for open dialogue, accurate reporting, and public trust in the face of vaccine-related adverse events. As we move forward, it is crucial to prioritize both vaccine safety and public confidence to ensure the successful rollout of COVID vaccination programs.
