The BC NDP has hired the former Alberta Chief Medical Health Officer Deena Hinshaw for a six month contract in an unelected bureaucrat role as British Columbia’s deputy provincial health officer.
The BC government said Hinshaw will “support the work of the office of the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, while filling in for another deputy provincial health officer who is on assignment.”
“I feel very fortunate to work alongside such talented and dedicated public health experts and I know their expertise will be a great assistance as we emerge from the pandemic and continue to address the many public health challenges facing the province,” Henry wrote in a news release.
In her first press conference as premier on Oct. 11, Smith said she would no longer take advice from Hinshaw.
“I will get new advice on public health,” Smith said. “I appreciate the work that Dr. Deena Hinshaw has done, but I think that we’re in a new phase where we are now talking about treating coronavirus (as) influenza.”
The public slammed Hinshaw for her misleading and inaccurate statement for the cause of death of a child using the unfortunate event to further push Covid-19 propaganda and divide society.
The disgraced former health officer received backlash after it was found she was lying about a child death during her Covid-19 update press conferences. She claimed at one point a child died from Covid-19, the family of the child spoke out against that claim as the child was in a battle with cancer and that was the cause of death.
The province of Alberta announced in November that Dr. Mark Joffe, vice-president and medical director for Cancer Care Alberta will be replacing her. Since January 28, 2019, Hinshaw had been Alberta’s “top” medical professional.
The Kenney government imposed mandatory vaccination mandates under Hinshaw’s direction and closed schools and churches. Officers from Alberta Health Services went to churches to check that Covid guidelines were being followed; those who did not were fined or shut down.
Many of the charges have been dropped. Charges that were pressed against Tim Stephens, an Alberta pastor, for was acquitted of the charges for breaking the province’s public health orders of physical distancing during the Covid-19 “pandemic”. Regarding the allegations, Stephens was incarcerated for a total of 21 days.
Residents of Alberta were degusted and slammed her and the province when it was revealed she received close to $228,000 for a Covid bonus in 2021 which was the largest cash benefit payout of any provincial bureaucrat on top of her already $363,633.92 salary
