Facebook Tries to Censor Derek Sloan’s Press Conference on Censorship of Doctors

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on June 17, 2021

Member of Parliament Derek Sloan held a press conference on Parliament Hill this morning that was meant to give a voice to censored doctors being suppressed from talking about potential issues with COVID-19 vaccines.

These medical professionals are currently working and are experts in relevant fields to the subject of COVID-19 and vaccines. Dr. Byram Bridle for instance is an immunology professor from the University of Guelph Ontario, who himself has expertise in the area of novel vaccine development.

There was also Dr. Patrick Phillips from Englehart Hospital and Dr. Don Welsh from the University of Western Ontario. 

All these medical professionals are in no way “anti-vaxxers” and actually would recommend vaccines in other circumstances where fewer studies and reports are coming out raising concerns with the safety of the vaccines for some Canadians.

Derek Sloan, before bringing in the medical professionals to speak, cited a few cases he has been made aware of, where younger Canadians were experiencing heart inflammation after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, which required one young woman to take medication that could risk the health of the one kidney she were born with.

Overall the expert testimony based on the research and information gathered by the medical professionals MP Sloan brought to speak at the conference was not sensationalistic, nor speculative, it was very grounded and provable issues that they believed posed enough of a risk that it could outweigh the risk of COVID-19, especially with alternative treatments already available. 

Dr. Welsh had himself noted that in many studies it has been shown that despite the majority of any vaccine being meant to stay within the shoulder muscle where it is injected, the COVID-19 vaccine instead has been often entering into the bloodstream in great part, causing complications for some patients.

Regardless of the credentials and professionalism of the people who spoke at Sloan’s press conference, Facebook stopped the airing of the Facebook live feed Sloan’s team had posted on their page where most people watching the conference were viewing it. 

The live feed was later restarted in a separate live video, but it was clear the feed had been suddenly interrupted not unintentionally during Dr. Phillips’ testimony. Facebook may have not been able to stop the discussion from taking place or justifiably shut down Sloan’s page for holding the conference but they could force a second live stream to be started that would ensure some viewership would not carry over to the new video, due to the lag inbetween.

Ironic, seeing as one major thrust of the press conference was Sloan and the medical professionals talking about censorship they and others have faced by just trying to have the discussion regarding the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines. The doctors themselves said they had been supported by many other medical professionals who were worried about losing their jobs if they spoke out.

It was also quite telling that at the end of the doctor’s speech when it went to questions from the press no mainstream media outlet asked a question, indicating they largely ignored the press conference, likely because the information being given goes against the liberal media narratives.

    I was watching on cpac and it cut out when the media started asking questions. The first reporter actually asked good questions. I was surprised!

    That is Dr. Byram Bridle of the University of Guelph, not Dr. Don Welsh.
