TORONTO, June 24, 2003 ( – Financial Post Business editor Terence Corcoran has once again come out swinging at the World Health Organization’s “reckless” exploitation of Canadian SARS and Mad Cow Disease incidences as opportunities to increase its power over the world’s nations.  Corcoran laments that “The SARS effort—with its sensational global death scorecard, its aggressive statements on risks, its authoritarian-style travel edicts—has wreaked havoc on the Toronto economy and spooked travellers away from other parts of the country”. He emphasizes that Canada has never adopted the same cost-is-no-object strategy for known diseases and causes of death that have caused vastly more deaths.  More than 218,000 people died in 2000, says Corcoran, “many of causes that are easily more preventable than SARS. Various forms of influenza and pneumonia killed 4,966 Canadians. Not one travel ban or isolation order was issued”. To put the figures in even sharper perspective he writes that “An astounding 62 people died falling out of bed, almost double the number of people who succumbed to SARS in Canada”.  An avid investigator of UN Global ambitions, Corcoran warns, “The WHO sees itself as a global authority to which national and local governments must be subservient. The SARS case was the first major test of the WHO’s ability to railroad national governments, and it succeeded. If the WHO can issue travel warnings over SARS, and succeed in turning an industry upside down, imagine what it could do in other areas.  See the Post article at:
