“Vaccine Apartheid” and “Who will be held accountable for Covid19 murder?”

Doug explained his upset and anger at “Vaccine Apartheid” of the Canada-first, beggar-the-rest-of-the-world attitude of the federal and provincial governments in the inoculation campaign to provide Covid19 vaccine to Canadians. In addition he expressed shared dismay with the Executive Editor of the British Medical Journal that no-one is going to be punished let alone held accountable for the outrageous and unnecessary loss of life, which he says can be classified as murder, that was incurred through government inaction, faulty policies and negligence during the month of the Covid19 pandemic.

The link to the editorial of Kamran Abassi of the British Medical Journal is appended here. There are also links to a number of articles describing the injustice and poor logic of Vaccine Apartheid.
