Fisman’s COVID study triggers inquiry in House of Commons 

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is getting grilled on its involvement in a controversial study that the Trudeau Liberals used to justify their COVID restrictions, including their divisive vaccine passport.

Fisman’s COVID study triggers inquiry in House of Commons 

An order paper question filed towards the CIHR from a Conservative MP is asking for more details on the study conducted by David Fisman, titled “Impact of population mixing between vaccinated and unvaccinated subpopulations on infectious disease dynamics: implications for SARS-CoV-2 transmission.”

The study found that the risk of COVID infection was “markedly higher among unvaccinated people than among vaccinated people under all mixing assumptions.”

The CIHR has 45 calendar days to provide a response to questions digging into allegations that the study was bogus — and one that Liberals even mentioned in the House of Commons when justifying their vaccine passports that kept many COVID unvaccinated individuals barred from work, travel, and restaurants.

Questions posed to the CIHR relate to the study’s funding stream, the peer reviewers’ qualifications and names, conflicts of interest, as well as if there was “federal government involvement with, or communication regarding, any component of the application review process, research study, or media outreach.” 

Fisman’s Fraud author celebrates

The study, which Canadian statistician Regina Watteel literally wrote a book about, called Fisman’s Fraud, has been highly criticized for its methodology, something Watteel alleges was scientific malpractice.

Watteel has stated that Fisman “concocted a model simulation that FLIPPED reality, the authors then asserted their findings as fact and proceeded to inform public policy based on the fabricated results.” 

“More specifically, the study leveraged a false premise to vilify the ‘unvaccinated’ and support public policy that limits their access to public spaces. Within one week of its publication the study made its way into the House where Liberal MP, Adam van Koeverden, cited it as justification to keep the travel restrictions,” she added in her substack.

Fisman denies the claims and says he’s grateful for all the attention the criticism has given his study.

Health Canada investigated for fraud?

Earlier this week, Liberal MP Ya’ara Saks acknowledged that it’s possible Health Canada is being investigated for fraud, though she wouldn’t say much else.

The development came during a Standing Committee on Health, when Conservative MP Todd Doherty asked the Associate Minister of Health point blank if there was such an investigation ongoing.

“I know that there are investigations that are ongoing,” Saks said, but wouldn’t say if any pertained to Health Canada or PHAC.

“Liberal Minister admits Health Canada is being investigated in fraudulent dealings with outside contractors,” Doherty later posted to X.

In December, documents revealed Health Canada paid social media influencers to persuade their followers to get COVID vaccinated.
