CAFE Urges Vancouver City Council Not to Impose Masking Indoors

CAFE Urges Vancouver City Council Not to Impose Masking Indoors

Canadian Association for Free Expression, BC,

Paul Fromm, Director

Dear Member of Council:
In the past eight months, Canadians have seen the most massive intrusion into their freedoms and civil rights in our nation’s history, dwarfing even the War Measures Act.

Travel to some provinces has been banned or restricted; businesses forced to close down; jobs eliminated and the mandating of intrusive,

uncomfortable and largely useless face masks. Remember back to March and April when Teresa Tam, Chief Medical Officer of Health for Canada dismissed masks as not very effective? What has changed? If you’re a smoker, take a strong drag on your cigarette, hold the smoke in your lungs, put on your mask and exhale. The smoke will drift through the mask and up and down and around and over it. If the mask can’t stop the smoke you can see, how will it stop the virus you can’t see?


You are being urged to require that masks be worn indoors at city facilities. The motion  is to be presented October 20 by Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung.
According to CTV News (October 7, 2020, “Richmond’s medical health officer Dr. Meena Dawar… indicated she favoured other precautions over mandating masks. ‘There is little justification for a mandatory mask policy and I recommend that it not be pursued,” Dr. Dawar wrote, and added buying masks could create ‘additional financial costs for already stretched households,’ as well as create potential barriers for people who cannot wear masks due to certain medical conditions.  ‘In the hierarchy of measures public health has recommended to prevent transmission since the beginning of the pandemic, non-medical mask wearing is one of the lowest.'”” 
I append a statement by many prominent medical men and women that the forced lockdowns and masking are the wrong way to handle the COVID virus.

The Great Barrington Declaration

The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection. 

Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice. 

Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.

Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza. 

As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e.  the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity. 

The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection. 

Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19. By way of example, nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent PCR testing of other staff and all visitors. Staff rotation should be minimized. Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered to their home. When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures, including approaches to multi-generational households, can be implemented, and is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals. 

Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.

On October 4, 2020, this declaration was authored and signed in Great Barrington, United States, by:

Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring of infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations.

Fired for My Political Views: The Peel Board of Education Buckled to Canadian Jewish Congress Pressure

In 1997, I had a young family & was fired at a very vulnerable time in my life, solely for the non-violent expression of my political views on my own time, off school property — victim of the thought police at the Canadian Jewish Congress. The censorship tail wagged the dog, the Peel Board of Education.

Free John McCash Protest by CAFE Outside Brampton Provincial Court

Free John McCash Protest by CAFE Outside Brampton Provincial Court

BRAMPTON, September 25, 2020. Members of the Canadian Association for Free Expression staged a protest outside the Provincial Court in Brampton, Ontario, where the latest victim of political policing during the COVID hysteria was to make his first appearance by video.

Get too mouthy opposing being muzzled like a dog, argue with some bossy clerk now acting as a mask enforcer and you might get arrested in COVID crazy Canada. “A 48-year-old Mississauga man has been charged for a … tirade caught on camera in Mississauga, Ont. on Sunday, July 5 which went viral after a White, non-mask wearing man berated staff at T&T Supermarket who told him he couldn’t shop at the store without a face covering.  ‘If I wear a mask I will have an asthma attack and these communists are attacking all of us…go back to China and take your coronavirus with you,’ said a man in a … tirade filmed by a bystander.

“The video was uploaded to YouTube and has been viewed over 280,000 times and was filmed at the predominantly Chinese-operated supermarket. It starts with a White man with his wife near him dumping grocery products from a bag on the floor while telling staff he ‘will never come back here again.’  The man then goes on to threaten the staff that he’ll ‘have the media’ here and staff can wear their masks and get sick. ‘When you wear the mask, you get sick — it’s science,’  he said.'” (CTV News, July 16, 2020)

“The charges were clearly political,” CAFE director Paul Fromm said. “There’s no crime here. Mr. McCash is being punished simply for speaking up and opposing the mask tyranny.”

CAFE Announces A Supporting Contribution to Gab

REXDALE, June 19, 2020. This evening CAFE Director Paul Fromm announced a supporting contribution to Gab in light of their steadfast support for free speech and open discussion. The Canadian Association for Free Expression, founded in 1983, is one of Canada’s leading free speech advocacy groups.

“Corporate censors and thought control fanatics in Silicon Valley and corporate America place little value on free speech and are quick to throttle free thought to please various minorities,” Fromm said.

“Gab is an open and welcome forum, CAFE is happy to make a modest contribution and urges other free speech supporters across the globe to do likewise.”

How Lamestream Media Censorship Works: Leftist Smear Outlet “Vice” Drops Interview With Paul Fromm After Learning Who He Is

VICE is a leftist Toronto online media outlet. They covered recent END THE LOCKDOWN freedom rallies at Queen’s Park. An Twitter observer explains: “

VICE interestingly let Toronto protesters say whatever silly thing they wanted even if it made them look bad, though it weirdly did not say anything about who Justin Long and Paul Fromm are. Long might be relatively unknown, but Fromm?

Well, that didn’t last long. Aghast that they had let one of Canada’s best known dissidents speak for himself, they quickly regretted their ways.

Update: A previous version of this story featured an interview with a man who only identified himself as “Paul.” VICE has learned the man was white supremacist Paul Fromm and has removed the interview.
