Dear Chief Medical Officer Brendan Handley,

I would like to request the drug Ivermectin be approved and encouraged for use in the Yukon.

In my previous letter, I expressed concerns about the measures put in place on May 25, 2021. In my letter, I outlined the fact that measures didn’t make sense given the fact that the vaccine neither stops receiving nor transmitting COVID 19. I suggested that vaccinated people are more of a danger to those who are unvaccinated. This has turned out to be true with the recent outbreak or COVID 19 in the Yukon, and the report that those in hospital have not been vaccinated.

I want to remind you that the vaccine is experimental and that some of us are not comfortable with taking an experiential vaccine. It is our right not to do so. Further, I shared some statistics that were very concerning to me – vaccine-related deaths and the high incidence of Covid19 in hospitalizations in black people in Canada and indeed the United States.

I also mentioned that the vaccine is not necessary as there are effective repurposed drugs. Those drugs are not currently recognized and approved in Canada.

I would like to share with you that two of my close family members have lost their lives to COVID 19. A first cousin in Jamaica and another first cousin in England – My cousins were black, in their 40”s, predisposed to diabetes, which is almost a given in the Arboine family, as well as high blood pressure. I would like to debunk a common misconception related to this – we are not of low socioeconomic status (in fact quite the opposite) or out in the streets exposing ourselves to covid19 unnecessarily. We are simply genetically predisposed.

My surviving family members in Jamaica have now been prescribed a Ziverdo Kit which contains Zinc Acetate, Doxycycline, and Ivermectin, and have it on hand in case they develop symptoms.

If anti-discrimination matters to you, rather than post a Black Lives Matter profile picture or wearing the t-shirt, I am asking for real changes that matter and makes a difference.

I am sharing here the research from world-renowned Dr. Pierre Kory.  This link takes you to information to bring to your doctor and you will also see up to date information on the use of Ivermectin worldwide.

US Senators Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio, and Marsha Blackburn have recognized Dr. Korry’s work in a recent statement and plan to take steps in the US. It must be stated, although these three senators are GOP, Dr. Kory is a declared democrat – until now COVID19 has been made into party politics in Canada and the US, which has no place in public health.

I ask that you take my request seriously and look into the effectiveness of Ivermectin and approve and encourage its use.
