EXCLUSIVE: Documents from an internal Facebook investigation into Qanon show, for the first time, the massive scale of the conspiracy theory's community on the platform. We're talking thousands of groups, millions of members. From me and @ArijitDSen https://t.co/LElvZbXzpP
Here's the statement. It is so stupid to conflate seasonal influenza to COVID-19, but lo. Furey writes: "Would [the B.C. nurses] also push back against mandatory COVID-19 vaccines?" Considering he claims to be a journalist, *maybe he should have asked.* https://t.co/bTxjO2K7fJ
There is some truth it. The B.C. Nurses Union *did* lobby to amend that policy, while stressing "vaccination is one effective way of protecting patients and health care workers." However, the new policy is suspended during outbreaks (meaning vaccinations can be mandated.)
But people read, and believe, this shit! When you write something like "the B.C. Nurses Union successfully fought the provincial government to remove a rule mandating nurses receive the flu shot," people come away wondering whether the government is silencing front-line critics!
Furey does not point to a single good reason to be wary of mandatory vaccination. Clinical trials are incredibly thorough and possible adverse effects are always well-documented. Furey largely goes "oh well people don't trust experts, therefore we shouldn't trust experts."
No. This is factually incorrect. Anthony Furey either doesn't understand basic technology (which is believable, given his past reporting) and/or he doesn't care, and just wants to rack up rage-views by people who believe his nonsense. https://t.co/CbWSdhPD97
Stuff like this actively undermines public trust in our pandemic response — not just the federal government, but provincial responses, too. Yesterday, Furey and his shady thinktank True North were spreading misinformation about Canada's COVID Alert app. https://t.co/DVFaiGMtAv
Here's Anthony Furey in the Toronto Sun, publishing absolute nonsense about mandatory vaccines, calling a hypothetical COVID-19 vaccine a "hastily developed serum." This is so goddamn dangerous, and these cranks don't seem to care. https://t.co/NcNvLkzGpC
The Wuhan Institute of Virology handles the world’s most dangerous pathogens, making it the target of conspiracy theories about the origin of the coronavirus. @janisfrayer was granted access to the lab and has the story. https://t.co/6WAfM6Z7VZ
Watching @janisfrayer at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and remembering when the White House and others blamed the lab for the coronavirus outbreak without citing or showing evidence, then just as quickly dropped the claim. https://t.co/PD7ErHu1jE
