LAVAL, Quebec (LifeSiteNews) – A university professor’s debunking of the mainstream COVID narrative has been wiped from the online sources of the media company that first published it.
Dr. Patrick Provost, a full professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Laval University and expert on mRNA, published an article that called foul on the COVID narrative on June 22 in the Journal de Quebec. The Journal‘s parent company, Québecor, subsequently took the article down.
“The true portrait of COVID-19 in Quebec” (English translation) has since been reposted in other places.
“Québecor has withdrawn this text by Professor Patrick Provost that appeared this week in the Journal de Montréal, the Journal de Québec and on the TVA Nouvelles website. In accordance with its mission to protect the freedom of the press, Libre Média is publishing it in its entirety,” tweeted Canadian politician Maxime Bernier in French.

In “True portrait”, Provost dissected the mainstream narrative about death rates, lockdown measures, and the efficacy and policies surrounding vaccination.
Regarding death rates, Provost wrote: “As of June 19, 2022, the cumulative data for all of Quebec is as follows: 15,462 deaths related to COVID-19 (chart 2.1) out of a total of 1,077,256 confirmed cases of COVID-19 (chart 1.1), for a calculated mortality rate of 1.44%.”
He added that the rate is “greatly overestimated” due to a number of factors, including a “several times higher than reported” infection rate and the fact that “deaths with, and not because of, COVID-19” were including in the tallies.
Provost stated that, according to the most recent data in the province, there has been ‘no excess all-cause mortality” in the province since the pandemic was declared, except in the over 70-year-old age bracket.
Notably, he said this higher rate of “all cause” death amongst the elderly only took place during “the first wave (April-June 2020) as well as “shortly after the imposition of the holiday lockdown/curfew or the deployment of the 3rd vaccine dose (January 2022).”
Provost did not associate the vaccines with higher death rates, but data from around the world compiled by insurance companies has shown that excess death-rate claims spiked by almost 40 per cent after populations were largely jabbed or boosted.
He then attacked the broad-scale lockdown measures that were applied irrespective of the different risk factors for different people.
“Did the pandemic reality described … justify imposing such severe and comprehensive health measures, rather than targeted ones, to circumscribe a threat that targeted a well-known category of people?” he wrote.

This time last year, Justin Trudeau and his media allies were at the forefront of falsely accusing Catholic institutions of having buried Indigenous children in mass graves at various residential schools across Canada.
There was and is no credible evidence to support these wild accusations, but many Canadians are still unaware of the facts.
SIGN to demand an apology from Justin Trudeau for promoting the "mass grave" smear
The anger generated by the media at home and abroad saw over twenty Canadian churches burned, and extensive damage done to many more, but the record has never been set straight in what amounts to a disinformation campaign.
Terry Glavin at the National Post recently wrote a masterful piece that may go down in history as the definitive “debunking” of the assertions about the mass graves that never were.
Glavin points out that “nothing new was added to the public record” concerning the history of residential schools in Canada.
“The legacy of the schools had already been exhaustively explored in the testimony of hundreds of elders and a series of inquiries, public hearings, criminal cases, settlements and federal investigations going back decades. Most important of these efforts were the widely publicized undertakings of the 2008-2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), and the content of its voluminous findings,” Glavin wrote.
“…[N]ot a single mass grave was discovered in Canada last year,” he added.
“The several sites of unmarked graves that captured international headlines were either already-known cemeteries, or they remain sites of speculation even now, unverified as genuine grave sites.”
“Not a single child” accounted for during the extensively researched commission “was located in any of these places,” Glavin underscored.
“In none of these places were any human remains unearthed.”
SIGN and SHARE the petition calling on Justin Trudeau to set the record straight.
Even Trudeau's kneeling at what was reported upon as a just-discovered residential school burial ground was a lie - it was actually a well-known Catholic cemetery, but the media didn't let these details get in the way of reinforcing their narrative.
Trudeau also called on Pope Francis to come to Canada and apologize for what had happened, as outlets like Reuters, the New York Times and scores more told the world that “nearly 1000 bodies” had been found in two mass graves.
Those online articles were quietly edited from "mass graves" to "unmarked graves", but we still have the Twitter posts from major outlets like Reuters to prove the staggering level of misinformation.
SIGN: Justin Trudeau must tell Canadians the truth - there were no mass graves
According to an extensive investigation by Professor Emeritus Jacques Rouillard from the Université de Montréal: “The ‘discovery’ was first reported last May 27 (2021) by Tk’emlúps te secwépemc First Nation Chief Rosanne Casimir after an anthropologist, Sarah Beaulieu, used ground-penetrating radar in a search for the remains of children alleged by some to be buried there.”
“Her preliminary report is actually based on depressions and abnormalities in the soil of an apple orchard near the school – not on exhumed remains.”
Professor Rouillard opined that the unverifiable narrative of what could have amounted to child-murder has led to the false assertion of genocide, an assertion without any supporting evidence.
“By never pointing out that it is only a matter of speculation or potentiality, and that no remains have yet been found, governments and the media are simply granting credence to what is really a thesis: the thesis of the ‘disappearance’ of children from residential schools,” Rouillard wrote.
“And all of this is based only on soil abnormalities that could easily be caused by root movements, as the anthropologist herself cautioned in the July 15 press conference.”
The vast majority of Canadians have been misled by the media and Mr. Trudeau, believing the most incredible smears imaginable, leading to scores of attacks on churches around the country.
It's time we heard the truth.
Please sign the petition today.
We are also cc'ing Canada's Catholic bishops on this petition - they must also demand the record be corrected, lest Canadians continue believing the mainstream media's disinformation.

The professor lamented the exclusion of “physicians from the care and any assessment of the risk/benefit ratio” regarding vaccination.
He also called the jab “an injection that is still experimental” and called foul on “mass vaccination of the entire population for a disease which particularly effects the very old and sick.”
In addition, Provost criticized the vaccination certification systems (vaccine passports) enacted by governments, which led to the “social exclusion of a minority of unvaccinated people.”
To conclude, he called for the need to depoliticize decisions, the government having “imposed decisions that go against science (e.g. curfew).”
“This reveals the importance of depoliticizing decisions that infringe on individual rights and freedoms, for example,” he said.
Quebec is facing a provincial election in October, and Provost called for a “balance sheet” for an “examination of conscience or deep collective reflection” of what has taken place and the harm that has been caused.
