Renowned pathologist, Dr. Roger Hodkinson spoke at the Edmonton City Council Community and Public Services Committee zoom meeting on November 13, 2020 about the city’s move to extend its coronavirus face-covering bylaw. Hodkinson, an expert in pathology, slammed the Canadian government’s coronavirus response and blamed politicians and media for generating false fear.
A recording of Dr. Roger Hodkinson’s testimony was released were he called coronavirus crisis “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.” The doctor condemned the government’s overblown response to the virus and its negative affects,
The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. It’s simply outrageous!
The doctor said that nothing that can be done to stop the spread of the virus besides protecting older more vulnerable people. He stressed that the virus is comparable to a “a bad flu season” adding, “this is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s a very dangerous game.”
Dr. Hodkinson’s slammed the government’s misguided advice of social distancing and lockdowns stating,
“Social distancing is also useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow…”
Dr. Hodkinson condemned mandatory mask mandates and their lack of effectiveness,
Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue-signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous.
Dr. Hodkinson pointed out on the call, that his current role as CEO of a biotech company, Western Medical Assessments, which manufactures COVID tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.”. He spoke of the unreliability of PCR tests, noting that “positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection.” Furthermore the doctor believes all test should stop immediately because the inflated “fake numbers are driving public hysteria.”
Dr. Roger Hodkinson’s credentials are extremely impressive, he received his general medical degrees from Cambridge University in the UK, and then became a Royal College certified pathologist in Canada (FRCPC). Dr. Hodkinson was the President of the Alberta Society of Laboratory Physicians and Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa. The Doctor was also a pathologist with the Medical Examiner’s Office in Edmonton determining the cause of death.
Listen to Dr. Roger Hodkinson’s testimony:
Many thanks to the Defender for the transcript of Hodkinson’s testimony:
This is Dr. Hodkinson, I just wanted to let you know I’m standing by.
OK, well we would love to hear from you, the floor is yours.
Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. What I’m going to say is lay language, and blunt. It is counter-narrative, and so you don’t immediately think I’m a quack, I’m going to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I’m coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.
I’m a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I’m the ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. I was previously an assistant professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa, but more to the point I’m currently the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test.
And [inaudible] you might say I know a little bit about all of this. The bottom line is simply this: There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s a very dangerous game.
There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t need anyone to tell us.
Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue-signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people — I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense — seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.
Social distancing is also useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.
And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless you’re presenting to the hospital with some respiratory problem.
All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3,000 to 5,000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection.
And I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this.
The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. It’s simply outrageous! It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that.
Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow.
Thank you very much.
Dear Dr Hodkinson, thank you very much for your testimony regarding the Corona Virus hoax I received same via WhatsApp today!! We really desperately need more professionals like you standing up against this horrific crime against humanity. I have forwarded your testimony to all my friends and family! The so-called fact-checks of course aver that you never said all this. And some of my friends also do not believe that you said the danger of the virus was a hoax.
Can you PLEASE confirm to me whether your testimony is indeed real or whether it is fake – like the fact-check aver. I would really appreciate to know the truth. THANK YOU!!! May God bless you!
Hi, I’ve been searching for the direct link for the ‘Alberta Society of Laboratory Physicians’ with absolutely no luck. I’ve searched via Duck Duck Go & Qwant but can not find a homepage for ASLP.
Many ppl are trying to make Dr.Roger Hodkinson out to be a liar & saying (just like the fact checkers) that he claimed titles that he didn’t. Also ppl are bringing up the Alberta Medical Association as evidence, showing who their president is, but this is a completely different place. This is occurring because good old Google have added their website to a title that says ‘Alberta Society of Laboratory Physicians’ ..so dodgy! So I am trying to call ppl out & prove them wrong. If you can assist me to find the direct link for the ASLP this would be great. I know this doctor is speaking the truth & his credentials say it all. But as usual ppl are easily misled & misinformed by the corrupt establishment & their deceiving tech company puppets.
Thanks very much, I’d truly appreciate any help you can provide.
i agree that people i send this too are writing back after checking with snopes (of all places, but some still trust it!), saying it isn’t this doc on the phone or he didn’t say it or whatever to discredit the information. whoever posted this needs to answer these comments right away if this is going to be circulated.
For those that keep asking if it was really Dr. Roger Hodkinson who called in to the Edmonton meeting in Canada, yes yes and yes. Those fact checkers are funded shills. Snopes are absolute grifters, go check into their history. They can’t kill his credentials, so they pretend it might not have been him. Dr. Hodkinson has done a fb interview w/ Randy Hillier, MP (one of the few decent conservatives willing to take a stand for us), he’s done other interviews, that you can find on Bitchute (because YT/Goolag) are fascist censorious dictators and delete his viral videos there. I love seeing all the lawsuits against Goolag, twittler and fb lately, just as an aside.
