This thread is a transcript of his statements during a Zoom conference call with government officials in Alberta last week. Link to full video/audi here:

/2
"There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus."

/3
"Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season.

This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s avery dangerous game. "

/4
"There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny, and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t need anyone to tell us."

/5
"Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous."

/6
"Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people– I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense–seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face."

/7
"Social distancing is also useless because Covid is spread by aerosols which travels 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences."

/8
"Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting."

/9
"I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for Covid. Positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem."

/10
"All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3000 to 5000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection."

/11
"And I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000."

/12
"You’ve got to get a grip on this. The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. it’s simply outrageous!"

/13
"It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that. Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine."

/14
"You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow. Thank you very much."

Just got my account back after Twitter locked it for retweeting a tweet about Benford's law and the US presidential election.

Benford's law/law of anomalous numbers is an observation about the frequency distribution of leading digits in many real-life sets of numerical data.

/1
Twitter deemed that my action violated their rules against "posting or sharing privately produced/distributed intimate media of someone without their express consent" and made it clear that "repeated violations may lead to a permanent suspension of your account".

/2
Benford's law has a history of being applied to election forensics, and was used as evidence of fraud in the 2009 Iranian elections. In the United States, evidence based on Benford’s law has been admitted in criminal cases at the federal, state, and local levels.
