Statement by Dr. Francis Christian FRCSEd, FRCSC
17 June 2021
Good afternoon ….
I am a practicing surgeon and I work in Saskatoon.
I do not represent any group.
I do not represent the SHA
I do not represent the University of Saskatchewan
I am directly addressing parents and children.
I speak directly to you as a physician, a surgeon and a fellow human being.
I am very pro-vaccine physician. I am only too aware of the great scourges of mankind,
including smallpox, that have been eliminated or made innocuous by vaccination.
I am also pro vaccine for my own family, including myself.
During the covid-19 pandemic I have continued to work, actually looking after patients in my
clinics and in operating rooms.
I want to start by thanking my colleagues, the nurses and physicians who have risen selflessly
and splendidly to the task of caring for covid-19 patients in Saskatoon and around the world.
I also want to thank the blue collar workers, the truck drivers, the grocery store workers, the
small business owners, the farmers, who have been working tirelessly to supply us physicians
with the essentials of life. Their exposure to peril and their rising splendidly to the needs of
society at this hour is as valuable as health care workers.
And arguably much more valuable than government and public health officials.
And now I shall directly address parents and their children.
Parents all want the best for their kids.
I am a parent and recently and joyfully, a grandparent.
I too want what is best for my kids.
In medicine, there is a sacrosanct principle before any kind of drug or treatment or intervention
is administered to the public – it is the principle of informed consent.
This principle is very simple and yet has truth, science and humanity at its heart – very simply,
the person by whom the drug, vaccine, treatment or intervention is administered must always
make the patient fully aware of the risks of the medical intervention, the benefits of the
intervention and if any alternatives exist to the intervention. This should apply particularly to a
new vaccine that has never before been tried in humans.
This new, m-RNA vaccine is now being administered at “warp speed” to children as young as 12
Parents must give informed consent to this new vaccine.
Before the vaccine is rolled out to children, both children and parents must know the risks of mRNA vaccines to children, any benefit to children and any alternatives to vaccines.
The principle of informed consent is being consistently violated in this province for the m-RNA
vaccine for our kids.
I have not met a single vaccinated child or parent who has been adequately informed and who
then understand the risks of this vaccine or its benefits.
Parents and children must at a minimum know the following before they give consent:
- That the m-RNA vaccine is a new, experimental vaccine design and has never been used in
- That the m-RNA vaccines have not been fully authorized by either Health Canada or by the
CDC in the USA or in most nations around the world. In Canada, they are under “interim
authorization.” In the USA, the CDC has them under “emergency use authorization.” Full
vaccine approval takes several years and multiple safety considerations – this has not happened
with the mRNA vaccines.
- That in order to qualify for “emergency use authorization” there must be an emergency.
For the elderly population, for the vulnerable, for health care workers, there is of course an
emergency – several thousand people in Canada have died of covid-19. But the mean age of
those who have died is 83.8. There is therefore a strong case for vaccinating the elderly, the
vulnerable and health care workers.
Covid-19 does not pose a threat to our kids. The risk of them dying of covid is less than 0.003% –
this is even less than the risk of them dying of the flu.
There is no emergency in children.
- That children do not readily transmit the covid virus to adults – and adults should be immune
or vaccinated anyway. In many countries teachers had significantly lower rates of covid-19 than
the general population.
- That the m-RNA vaccines have already been associated with several thousand deaths in the
Vaccine Adverse Reporting System maintained by the US government. These appear to be
unusual, compared to the total number of vaccines administered, but they are a strong signal
and cannot be ignored. As of 4 June 2021 and in the period of only of few months, 5,888 deaths
have been associated with the m-RNA vaccines. These are associations and not verified yet as
causations, but in any other drug or vaccine they would have been sufficient to stop the whole
program – a pause, a regrouping and certainly a big signal to not give it to our kids.
- That the m-RNA vaccine is already causing serious medical problems for kids all over the
world. There is a real and significantly increased risk of a condition called myocarditis –
inflammation of the heart for those kids vaccinated with the m-RNA vaccine. Myocarditis is a
serious condition with long term implications for some children. Some children can die with
This has been sufficient to make the German national vaccine agency to not recommend the
vaccine to healthy children and adolescents.
The UK vaccine agency, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph is also not authorizing the
vaccine for kids.
Tomorrow the CDC is meeting in emergency session to discuss this issue – there is a good
likelihood that they too will call for a pause in vaccinating our kids.
When will Health Canada act?
The principle of avoiding harm is paramount.
- The benefit of the vaccine in preventing covid-19 for kids is marginal at best in the small trials
that were done. The ARR (Absolute Risk Reduction) is less than 2%.
Small trials, like the Pfizer trials cannot detect real risk and cannot address medium and long
term side effects.
- That the drug Ivermectin, is the alternative – both for kids and for adults. And there are other
early treatment alternatives. This common, cheap and very safe drug is being blocked in many
Western countries. https://covid19criticalcare.com
That is what informed consent at its minimum for our children and parents should look like.
I urge our authorities to call a pause in the m-RNA vaccine roll-out to our kids.
Informed consent is not being given to parents and children in Saskatchewan for m-RNA
vaccines for kids.
Without informed consent, the Nuremberg code is being violated – and many physicians across
Canada and around the world are rising up to honor their pledge to always put their patients
and humanity first.
