(LifeSiteNews) — In a series of passionate tweets, Ontario-based doctor Matt Strauss called on hospital CEOs to “pick up the phone and call everyone you fired over unethical, ineffective, unscientific vaccine mandates” as a way of combating the major staffing shortages hospitals are facing in the province.

“I spent the holiday weekend working in an Ontario ICU. It was *completely* full and there was ZERO Covid. The staffing problem is very real. Poor morale and high workloads form a vicious circle. Here’s how I would fix it if I were a hospital CEO,” opened Strauss in a social media post on Wednesday.  

“1/ Apologize. Pick up the phone and call everyone you fired over unethical, ineffective, unscientific vaccine mandates. Ask them to come back. Then apologize to everyone who is still at work but felt coerced.

2/ End the mask mandates. It’s been 2.5 years that HCW haven’t seen each other smile or had a non-muffled conversation. This takes a psychological toll. Hard to measure, but it’s real 

3/ End the punitive, mean-spirited visitor policies. Nothing burns HCWs out more than telling families they can’t see their loved ones, then getting yelled at by said families. These policies protect no one.

4/ Welcome back the volunteers, gift shop workers etc. Hospital lobbies used to be bustling places where the community met and pitched in.

5/ Stop the silly screening protocols. There is no scientific basis for treating the hospital entrance like a militarized border crossing. Everyone knows to stay home if sick. I don’t need someone to hand me a mask with salad tongs. Redeploy those workers to patient care.”

Strauss also made a few other suggestions, such as having CEOs “commit to working 2 shifts per month as a frontline health care worker in [their] background profession,” paying nurses more, and admitting the pandemic “is over.”

As indicated by Strauss, while most of the COVID hysteria from the past two years has died down, Canada’s healthcare sector is still using disproven scientific rationale to hold on to many of their so-called pandemic measures.

In fact, despite COVID vaccine trials having never produced evidence that the shots stop infection or transmission, the province of British Columbia refused to allow unvaccinated medical staff back to work amid a shortage, and instead pledged $12 million to hire foreign nurses.

In addition to the healthcare sector, Canadians are still subjected to testing protocols at the border, mandatory mask wearing on public transportation, and vaccine mandates for many private and public sector jobs, despite overwhelming evidence showing the ineffectiveness of masking, the ineffectiveness of the vaccines, and the large number of serious consequences, including death, that have been linked to the experimental injections, lockdowns and other pandemic protocols.
