Fired “Canadian” virologist secretly worked at Wuhan Lab on mRNA vaccines in 2019 
PHAC maintains the shipment Dr. Xiangguo Qiu sent to the Wuhan Lab on March 31, 2019, had nothing to do with COVID.

Uncovered documents from Canada’s top spy agency show that seven months before COVID broke out in Wuhan, the now-fired virologist from Canada’s top biolab was secretly researching mRNA vaccines at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

CSIS indicated that Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, the PHAC employee who transferred pathogens from Winnipeg to Wuhan in March of 2019, also contributed on another project at the Wuhan lab that started shortly after.

The second project started June 2019, and likely included gain-of-function research.

The documents were part of a 600+ page report released by an ad hoc committee of parliamentarians that studied matters related to Dr. Qiu’s transfer of pathogens (reportedly containing Ebola and Henipah viruses) from Winnipeg to Wuhan on March 31, 2019.

Parliamentarians were invested in providing transparency to Canadians about what really happened behind the 2019 suspension, then 2021 firing of Dr. Xiangguo Qiu and Dr. Keding Cheng from the National Microbiology Laboratory [NML] in Winnipeg.

The long-awaited investigation into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the federally employed scientists has produced shocking revelations, and unfortunately cemented another all-too-recent national embarrassment for Canada, one that’s arguably on par with last year’s whoopsie involving a standing ovation – and a 98-year-old Nazi vet.

The partially redacted documents show that Qiu, who was born in China, secretly worked for and was paid by various Chinese Communist Party entities for research meant to benefit China’s biological technology, and she, along with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), intentionally hid these activities from PHAC.

CSIS wrote that “Ms. Qiu was associated to multiple ‘talent programs’ administered and funded by various [People’s Republic of China] entities.”

“Service information reveals that these programs aim to boost China’s national technological capabilities and may pose a serious threat to research institutions, including government research facilities, by incentivizing economic espionage and theft of intellectual property,” documents read. 

One program she worked on was directly for the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) that CSIS called “Project 1,” albeit with mostly blacked out project details. 

However, of the details that weren’t blacked out, CSIS indicated that Qiu was listed as a project designer and manager of this Project 1, where she was “working on mRNA vaccine construction.” 

This Project 1 was to take place between January 1, 2019, and December 31, 2021.

Even more disturbing is there exists strong evidence that Dr. Qiu and the WIV intentionally deceived PHAC in discussing the purpose for the March 31, 2019 transfer of pathogens.

Under Project 1’s application’s section titled “Review opinions of applicant’s organization,” it states “We are in the process of applying for official permit to transfer BSL-4 pathogens from Canada to China. To avoid confusing the leaders, it’s better not to let the National Microbiology Laboratory know about this project. And since there will be no budget transfer for China to Canada, it’s not necessary to have the opinion from National Microbiology Laboratory.” [Emphasis added] 

Furthermore, in the controversial package that Qiu ultimately sent from Winnipeg to Wuhan (which reportedly contained Ebola and Henipah viruses), at least 5 of the virus strains from the pathogens were referenced in Project 1 – the project that was developing mRNA vaccines. 

PHAC was not aware of Project 1, but has stated that Qiu’s firing had nothing to do with the shipment she sent to WIV on March 31, 2019, which PHAC approved. 

PHAC insisted in 2020 that the shipment, and Dr. Qiu’s firing, had nothing to do with COVID, amid a number of other breaches of trust she was guilty of committing. One other such breach of policy was allowing two unauthorized individuals into the Winnipeg lab, and a conflict of interest related to a patent.

As per CSIS, “The desire on the part of WIV Project 1 members to keep this project secret from NML suggests that the PHAC-approved transfer of BSL-4 pathogens to WIV contained strains that – unbeknownst to PHAC and NML – were to be used in WIV project 1.”

Yet another project running through the WIV, where Dr. Qiu was in charge of “overall planning,” CSIS called “Project 2.”

This project was to take place between June 19, 2019, and May 2021. Project 2 assessed “cross-species infection and pathogenic risks of bat filoviruses for future vaccine development purposes, which suggests that gain-of-function (GOF) studies were possibly to take place.”  

Qiu and her husband’s whereabouts are currently unknown.

These allegations have not been tested in court. 

Poilievre responds to Trudeau’s attempt to cover-up

Opposition Leader Pierre Poilievre issued a scathing statement after the release of these documents.

“This is a massive national security failure by Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government, which he fought tooth and nail to cover up, including defying four parliamentary orders and taking the House of Commons Speaker to court. He cannot be trusted to keep our people and our country safe,” he said.

Trudeau responded to Poilievre’s accusations by accusing him of promulgating conspiracy theories.

The Trudeau government did indeed sue the Speaker of the House of Commons to prevent the release of this information. 

And, in 2019 when a committee was beginning to investigate this same incident, Trudeau called a snap election, putting an end to the committee’s activities.
