I'd like to ask our provincial health officer to stop wearing performative Indigenous jewelry & accessories out of respect for this population that has been disproportionately harmed by her lax Covid policies.
Also **the toxic drug crisis** that has impacted the #DTES, home to many Indigenous people, where under her leadership BC has *failed* to regulate the drug supply.
And this... there's so much harm Bonnie & co have done
From this week's independent report of the BC government's Covid-19 handling Indigenous impacts of BC's pandemic response

From today's report:

"Indigenous respondents held more negative views on government’s performance than others, with almost 90% disagreeing with the statement "'The B.C. Government managed the pandemic well'"
"The abrupt removal of most restrictions in April 2022 left most First Nations with no time to react to the changes in areas surrounding their communities and lands."
"More consideration should have been given to the impacts of removing almost all restrictions in April

A disgusting article in which Dr. Henry conflates violent anti-vax extremists with Covid conscious activists asking for more protections like masks.…
Let me be very clear: if she actually listened to us, she'd know we are not advocating for "Covid Zero" but for simple effective airborne precautions that reduce morbidity like masks.
It is not lost on me that she met with Northern Health & First Nations Health Authority but mentioned nothing about the 5yo Indigenous girl, Mavis, from BC's North who died in November of Influenza

A thread on @WorkSafeBC's woefully inadequate Covid guidelines for employers. 🧵
1/ the 2022 guidelines fail to mention #LongCovid, though this is a serious disease that has caused ~4M Americans to leave the workforce…
2/ The guidelines say "As COVID-19 vaccinations have become widely available to British Columbians, the overall risk of COVID-19 transmission and serious consequences has diminished."

Really? 👀

A lot of folks who sound alarms about Covid & immune dysregulation are looked at like they have a third eye or accused of being alarmist.

Well, here's a great read on the issue by Nobel laureate & immunologist @ProfPCDoherty…
