‘Our challenge to Canada’s federal and provincial governments boils down to this: after fifteen months of locking people down, isolating them from their friends and family, closing schools, bankrupting businesses, and closing houses of worship, show us your science.’
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms today released “Lockdowns and the Science of COVID,” a paper based on the medical and scientific evidence presented recently before the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench by expert witness Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
Dr. Bhattacharya is a tenured Stanford professor of medicine, with particular expertise in the health and well-being of vulnerable populations. As a co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration, he and over 50,000 medical doctors and infectious disease specialists have called on governments to lift lockdown restrictions on healthy people and instead provide ‘focused protection’ to the elderly and infirm. This would allow for herd immunity to develop safely amongst healthy people.
