Scott Spidle, the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) Candidate for West-Nova Riding, testified at the National Citizen Inquiry on the COVID-19 vaccine, expressing his hesitation to take the vaccine and his concerns about its safety.
When asked if he was eager to take the vaccine when it emerged, Spidle replied, “No.” He admitted that he did not take the vaccine, citing numerous reasons. One of the reasons he mentioned was that he had survived COVID-19 and believed that his natural immunity was longer-lasting and more effective than the vaccine.
Spidle also expressed concerns about the safety of the vaccine even before it was rolled out. He mentioned that in the fall of 2021, he had lost two loved ones who died shortly after receiving their vaccine injections. One of them experienced massive heart failure within 48 hours, despite having no previous heart conditions, and the doctor could not determine the cause.
Due to these reasons, Spidle admitted feeling apprehensive about getting the vaccine. He was then asked about his feelings when provinces across Canada and the federal government started implementing vaccine mandates. Spidle stated that he found it to be a clear violation of basic rights and believed it had severe effects on people’s lives, families, relationships, and employment, as testified by numerous individuals at the inquiry.
The National Citizen Inquiry on the COVID-19 vaccine, organized by the website https://nationalcitizensinquiry.ca/, has been established as Canada’s response to gather testimonies from individuals who have concerns or opinions about the vaccine and its mandates. The inquiry aims to provide a platform for individuals to share their experiences and perspectives on the vaccine’s safety, effectiveness, and implementation of mandates in Canada.
