The public should be assured that the vast majority of Canada’s 448,000 regulated nurses are united in their commitment to operate from a stringent code of ethics, and they are duty-bound to use science, evidence, and facts @canadanurses…
“The reckless views of a handful of discredited people who identify as nurses have aligned in some cases with angry crowds who are putting public health and safety at risk”
“For some reason they would have us believe that millions of the best educated health scientists, public health experts, physicians & nurses globally have all missed something they have not. Their outlandish assertions about science would be laughable were they not so dangerous”
