Leading cause of death in Alberta (BY A LONG SHOT) is “Unknown”. Why isn’t our next Premier talking about this?


8 minute read

If you were to ask 10 random Albertans what the leading cause of death was in 2021, many would respond with either COVID-19, or perhaps cancer.  If they really pay attention to things like this they might say heart disease or maybe dementia (old age).

Lucky for us the Province of Alberta has made the cause of death statistics public since 2001.  If you’d like to see them, click here and download “Leading Causes of Death”. If you do, you’ll see that for 15 years in a row, from 2001 to 2015 the leading cause of death for Albertans was heart disease. Dementia makes a strong push toward the end of that time frame.  By 2016 dementia became the leading cause of death for the next 5 years in a row.  Here’s what the list of the top 10 causes of death looked like in 2019. That was the last year ‘before’ COVID-19 appeared on the list.

2019 Organic dementia 1 1997
2019 All other forms of chronic ischemic heart disease 2 1886
2019 Malignant neoplasms of trachea, bronchus and lung 3 1523
2019 Other chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 4 1159
2019 Acute myocardial infarction 5 1061
2019 Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, so described 6 678
2019 Accidental poisoning by and exposure to drugs and other biological substances 7 677
2019 Stroke, not specified as hemorrhage or infarction 8 602
2019 Diabetes mellitus 9 569
2019 Other ill-defined and unknown causes of mortality 10 522

Then along came COVID-19.  In 2020 dementia remained the leading cause of death for Albertans, but COVID-19 came charging out of nowhere to become the 6th most common cause of death.  It’s important to note though the stats say COVID-19 “identified”.  That makes it unclear whether COVID was THE cause, A cause, or A symptom.  The other interesting thing to note was that in 2020, suddenly “Unknown Causes” skyrocketed up to the fourth leading cause of death, outpacing even COVID.

2020 Organic dementia 1 2081
2020 All other forms of chronic ischemic heart disease 2 1897
2020 Malignant neoplasms of trachea, bronchus and lung 3 1563
2020 Other ill-defined and unknown causes of mortality 4 1464
2020 Other chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 5 1178
2020 COVID-19, virus identified 6 1084
2020 Acute myocardial infarction 7 1067
2020 Accidental poisoning by and exposure to drugs and other biological substances 8 920
2020 Diabetes mellitus 9 743
2020 Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, so described 10 670

In 2021 you might expect COVID-19 would leap into top place in the list of leading causes of death for Albertans. That’s not what happened.  COVID did climb from the 6th most common cause of death to the 3rd most common cause, but at the same time “Unknown causes of mortality” EXPLODED into the top position.

Looking back on the last 20 years before 2021 the number 1 cause of death ranged from a low of 1,581 people dying of heart disease in 2012, to a high of 2,018 people dying of dementia in 2020.  It was only 2020 when the number of people dying from any single cause topped 2,000 for the first time.

Then in 2021 a whopping 2,135 people died of dementia.  That would be enough to be the number one cause of death any other year since records have been kept. Except it wasn’t because in 2021 3,362 people died of unknown causes! Not only did “unknown causes” of death rise above that threshold of 2,100.  It DEMOLISHED that number.

2021 Other ill-defined and unknown causes of mortality 1 3362
2021 Organic dementia 2 2135
2021 COVID-19, virus identified 3 1950
2021 All other forms of chronic ischemic heart disease 4 1939
2021 Malignant neoplasms of trachea, bronchus and lung 5 1552
2021 Acute myocardial infarction 6 1075
2021 Other chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 7 1028
2021 Diabetes mellitus 8 728
2021 Stroke, not specified as hemorrhage or infarction 9 612
2021 Accidental poisoning by and exposure to drugs and other biological substances 10 604

It’s worth repeating, in 2021 “Unknown Causes” were responsible for the deaths of 3,362 Albertans! That’s over 50% more deaths than any of the leading causes since records have been made public!

Considering the Government of Alberta closed businesses, schools, and recreation centres for a virus responsible for 1,950 deaths in 2021 it is astounding that our media isn’t screaming and our government is not aggressively trying to figure out what caused the deaths of 3,362 Albertans!

It’s not just Alberta and Canada seeing this alarming trend.  In England officials are reporting an increase in excess deaths of over 15% compared to the 5 year average. ” Harley Street GP Charles Levinson told The Spectator that while “every slight bump or uptick in the Covid numbers demands endless column inches”, there had been “total silence from so many” on the “damning” overall death statistics. “

British health researcher John Campbell reveals the situation in England.

It used to be the media’s job to take the data and ask questions.  Somehow they’ve failed to recognize the significance of THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH sweeping much of the planet.

If you were unable to come up with your own questions when you watched John Campbell’s video, you might very much appreciate this commentary from Jimmy Dore.

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.

Trudeau gov’t still receiving COVID shots while throwing away $1.5 billion worth of expired jabs

Published on

From LifeSiteNews

Canada has contracted for delivery up to 90.8 million COVID vaccines by this December despite decreased demand from Canadians for the experimental shots.

Canada is still under contract to purchase shipments of the experimental COVID vaccines while at the same time throwing away $1.5 billion dollars worth of expired shots.   

According to information obtained April 8 by Blacklock’s Reporter, Liberal Health Minister Mark Holland revealed that Canada is still being forced under contract to purchase new vaccines even as the Department of Health has thrown away $1.59 billion worth of expired shots.

“As additional vaccines were authorized for use in Canada, manufacturers increased production capacity and demand from Canadians decreased,” Holland explained in a December 6 briefing note.   

“Overall wastage increased,” he wrote. “Additionally, as new formulations have been authorized for use to address variants of concern, wastage of older formulations has increased.”  

According to the briefing note, contracts with vaccine companies have compelled Canada’s Public Health Agency to continue to purchase the unwanted vaccines. The suppliers included Pfizer Canada, Novovax Incorporated and Moderna Inc. 

“The Public Health Agency does not intend to procure additional COVID-19 vaccines once firm contractual deliveries under existing Advance Purchase Agreements are completed at the end of the calendar year 2024 for messenger RiboNucleic Acid vaccines and in 2024 for non-mRNA vaccines,” said the note. 

While the note did not disclose how many more vaccines Canada is still on the hook for, a 2023 report from the Department of Public Works revealed it had contracted for delivery of up to 90.8 million doses by December 31, 2024.   

Since November 24, 2023, a total 52.9 million doses have been thrown away. The wastage cost Canadians $1.59 billion according to the Auditor General’s estimate that the shots cost about $30 per dose. 

“‘Up to date’ is the right way to think about vaccination now,” then-Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos told reporters June 30, 2022. “‘Fully vaccinated’ makes no sense now. It is ‘up to date.’” 

“We will never be fully vaccinated against COVID-19,” he claimed. “Like the virus, our immunity also evolves.” 

However, government research has revealed that the majority of Canadians are flat-out refusing a COVID booster injection. Data from the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccination: Vaccination coverage dashboard, shows that only 14.6 percent of Canadians, about 5.7 million, have had an “XBB.1.5 vaccine” COVID booster.  

Canadians’ decision to refuse the vaccine comes as a Statistic Canada report revealed that deaths from both COVID-19 and “unspecified causes” surged following the release of the so-called “safe and effective” vaccines. 

LifeSiteNews has published comprehensive research on the dangers of receiving the experimental vaccine, including heart damage and blood clots.    

The Trudeau government, with the help of the Department of Health, heavily promoted the COVID jabs, which were rushed to market.

In 2021, Trudeau said Canadians “vehemently opposed to vaccination” do “not believe in science,” are “often misogynists, often racists,” and questioned whether Canada should continue to “tolerate these people.”   

A recent study done by researchers at the Canada-based Correlation Research in the Public Interest found that 17 countries have a “definite causal link” between peaks in all-cause mortality and the fast rollouts of the COVID shots and boosters.   

In October, LifeSiteNews reported how the Polyomavirus Simian Virus 40 (SV40), which is a monkey-linked DNA sequence known to cause cancer when it was used in old polio vaccines, has been confirmed by Health Canada to be in the Pfizer COVID shot, a fact that was not disclosed by the vaccine maker to officials.  

In November, officials with Canada’s Department of Health refused to release data concerning internal audits related to the COVID crisis that show “critical weaknesses and gaps” according to their own department memo.

Elon Musk-backed pro-freedom Ontario doctor takes on regulatory board in court battle

Ontario pediatrician Dr. Kulvinder Kaur Gill

By Clare Marie Merkowsky

Ontario physician Dr. Kulvinder Kaur Gill, with financial backing by Elon Musk’s X, is fighting the College of Physicians and Surgeons in court for punishing her for posts criticizing COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

Ontario physician Dr. Kulvinder Kaur Gill, who has received financial backing from Elon Musk’s social media company X, is still mired in a legal fight against the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario after the regulatory board punished her for comments she made criticizing COVID-era policies.   

During an April 10 session at the Divisional Court of the Ontario Superior Court, Gill challenged several cautions imposed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSO) over her comments made on X, formerly known as Twitter, in 2020. 

“The committee’s decisions were neither reasonable nor justified and they failed to engage with the central issues for which Dr. Gill was being cautioned,” Gill’s lawyer Lisa Bildy said during the Wednesday court hearing.  

Bidly argued that Gill had a “reasonable scientific basis” for her posts, adding the previous decision made against Gill targetted her for opposing the mainstream narrative.   

“The decision starts with the premise that doctors have to comply,” she said, warning that censoring doctors would have a “chilling effect” on free speech.   

One of Gill’s “controversial” posts read, “If you have not yet figured out that we don’t need a vaccine, you are not paying attention. #FactsNotFear.” 

“The Supreme Court of Canada has made it clear that regulated professionals have robust protections under the Charter when they express their opinions in the public square, as Dr. Gill has done,” Bidly said 

Gill, a Canadian physician who became well-known for speaking out against draconian COVID mandates in her home province of Ontario, was sanctioned by her medical college and forced into costly legal battles. After bringing notice to her case, billionaire Tesla owner Elon Musk threw his support behind Gill, vowing to aid her financially.

“As one of the first Canadian MDs to oppose lockdowns on Twitter in 2020 … I’ve been persecuted for four years solely due to my tweets. Please help a fellow Canadian! ~$300k in court-ordered costs due in four days,” Gill wrote on X on March 21, along with a screen shot of Musk’s August post promising to fund legal battles for those targeted for posting on X.  

A short while after Gill’s post, Musk replied, writing, “We will help.” 

Gill is a specialist practicing in the Greater Toronto area, and has extensive experience and training in “pediatrics, and allergy and clinical immunology, including scientific research in microbiology, virology and vaccinology.”  

Last September, disciplinary proceedings against her were withdrawn by the CPSO. However, last year, Gill was ordered to pay $1 million in legal costs after her libel suit was struck down, and recently she was told she must pay $300,000 by the end of March. 

The CPSO began disciplinary investigations against Gill in August 2020, with The Democracy Fund (TDF) noting she was the target of “an online campaign by other doctors, media and members of the public to generate complaints against her.”  

Gill has a large following on X and since mid-2020 has been active on the platform criticizing COVID mandates. She was one of the few Canadian doctors who spoke out strongly against the COVID dictates early on and would take to X regularly to share her views.  

Due to Gill’s social media posts, she has faced continued investigations as well as disciplinary actions by the CPSO. There have also been public complaints made against her, which the CPSO investigated.  

In late 2020, she took legal action against a group of some 23 doctors, academics, reporters and even the former president of the Ontario Medical Association, who she claimed had allegedly damaged her reputation as a “medical professional for unfairly attacking her anti-lockdown stance.”  

The result of the case, which is being reviewed by the Honourable Harriet E. Sachs, Frederick L. Myers and Sharon Shore, has not been announced as of yet.
