Amendment to 2005 IHR Letters

Letter 2. Subject: The WHO has disregarded its own binding process rules and regulations.

Letter IHR-1 & IHR-1 attachment: download from this folder.

Canada must immediately withdraw from the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The World Health Organization (WHO) has disregarded its own binding process rules and regulations in relation to adopting amendments to the 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR).

The proposed amendments shorten the time for:
a) scrutiny of any future amendments to the [original] 2005 IHR from 18 months to 10 months; and
b) implementing future changes into Canadian domestic law from 24 to 12 months.

By the WHO's own rules, proposed amendments are required to be submitted 4 months prior to the World Health Assembly (WHA) meeting which took place on May 24, 2022. As such, they should have been submitted before or on Jan 24, 2022 to allow the members to review and assess the proposals. Instead, the proposals were submitted during the May 2022 meeting, and should have been declared NULL and VOID at the time by Canada and other member nations.

The Canadian Constitution sets out the division of federal and provincial powers in the field of health. Given this division of powers, it is evident that shortening the period of public consultation and parliamentary scrutiny will not allow sufficient debate federally and provincially, as well as debate in the Senate. The WHO submitted the proposed amendments illegally, and then proceeded as if the amendments were validly submitted: an duplicitious action that renders it an untrustworthy organization.

Letter 3. Subject: WHO-developed requirements, such as mandatory vaccination and contact tracing, violate Canada's laws.

Letter IHR-2 & optional IHR-2 attachment: download from this folder.

Proposed amendments to Articles 1 and 42 of the International Health Regulations (IHR) change the overall nature of the WHO from an advisory organization to an (unelected) governing body whose proclamations would be legally binding on member nations. This would compromise Canada's rule of law.

Here is an example: Article 18 of the only published proposed amendments we have access to, give the WHO the authority to require medical examinations, ...proof of implement contact tracing, and TREATMENT. However, the Canada Communicable Disease Report (CCDR) May, 1997; Vol 23S4 and Canadian National Report on Immunization; 1996, states: Unlike some countries, immunization is not mandatory in Canada; it cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution.” Yet if the WHO becomes an unelected legally binding governing body, Canadians' rights, guaranteed under Canada's constitution, will be abrogated.

Moreover, adoption of IHR amendments only requires an approval vote of 50% member nations. However, most of WHO's member nations are not democratic countries. As such, amendments that are binding and contrary to Canada's rule of law may be voted on and approved by other nations. The result will be that Canada will be forced to comply, despite the contravention of Canada's Constitution. This is a deal breaker!
