Dr. Stephen Malthouse read a prepared statement —
We are a wide and diversified community of Canadian doctors coming from all over Canada that are sending this critical announcement to the Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons of our numerous Provinces and Territories and also to the general public at large, whom we provide services to.
On April 30th, 2021, Ontario’s medical professional licensing body, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), released a declaration prohibiting doctors from disputing or discussing any or all of the official actions enforced in reaction to COVID-19.
The CPSO at that point went on to intimidate medical doctors with penalties and even corrective action.
We consider this latest announcement of the CPSO to be unethical, anti-science, and profoundly troubling.
The statement goes on —
When it comes to the lockdown interference, for instance, medical professionals have a fiduciary responsibility to explain to the general public that solitary confinement imposes costs on the general public, including in greatly enhanced clinical depression and even suicide rates, put off investigation and procedure of many forms of cancer (featuring postponed surgical treatment, radiation treatment ), increasing waiting lineups ( significantly raised client suffering) as well as boost rates of child home abuse.
We, doctors, strongly believe that with the CPSO declaration of 30 April 2021, a watershed moment in the attack on freedom of speech and medical inquiry has been reached.
By ordering medical professionals to be quiet and comply with only 1 narrative, or else face discipline and censure, the CPSO is asking all of us to break our principles, our ethical values, the Nuremberg Code, as well as the scientific search of truth.
We will not ever obey and are going to always put our clients 1st.
The CPSO must withdraw and retract its announcement of 30 April 2021.
We likewise give notice to various other Canadian and worldwide licensing jurisdictions for medical doctors and allied professions that the suppressing of scientific inquiry and any kind of order to breach our principles and expert promise to our clients, on its own might constitute a crime against humanity.
