Banned viral video. Dr. Hodkinson pulls no punches in calling masks useless, calling for a stop to testing people who don't feel sick, and calling to reopen. In this video, he addresses a Community and Public Services Committee in Alberta on November 13, 2020, saying the government response is about politics, not medicine.

"It's no different from last year's flu. What else do you want to know."
Interviewed by Anna Brees
Canadian doctor blasts corona hysteria: ‘Greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public’ a quote from lifesitenews.com. Alberta, City Council Community and Public Services Committee meeting held on November 13,2020.
"Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. And what I am going to say is lay language and blunt. What I am going to say is counter-narrative. So you don't immediately think I'm a quack I'm going to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I'm coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.
I'm a medical specialist in pathology that includes virology. I trained in Cambridge University in the UK. I'm the ex-president of the pathology section of the medical association. I was previously an assistant professor in the faculty of medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the royal college of physicians in Canada examination committee of pathology in Ottawa. But more to the point, I'm currently the chairman of a bio-technology company in North Carolina selling the COVID19 test.
The bottom line is simply this. There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It's outrageous. This is the greatest hoax perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus other than protecting your more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It's not SARS. It's politics playing medicine, and that's a very dangerous game.
There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home. We took chicken noodle soup. We didn't visit granny and we decided when we would return to work. We didn't need anyone to tell us.
Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for there effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signalling. They're not even wore effectively most of the time. It's utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people. I'm not saying that in a pertusis sense. Seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying without any knowledge base to put the mask on their face.
Social distancing is also useless because covid is spread by aerosols which travel 30 metres or so before landing. And closures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as was stated in the great barrington declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.
And a word on testing. I do want to emphasize that I am in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not underlined in neon mean a clinical infection. It's simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop unless you're presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem. All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control. Give them all 3000-5000 International Units of vitamin D everyday. Which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood in infection.
And I would remind you all. Using the provinces own statistics, the risk of death in this province is 1 in 300,000 (three hundred thousand). 1 in 300,000. You've got to get a grip on this. The scale of the response you're undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way you're proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings, etc etc it's simply outrageous. It's just another bad flu and you've got to get your minds around that. Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You're being led back right down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health in this province. I'm absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow.
Thank you very much. "

"Das Ausmaß der Reaktion, die Sie ohne jegliche Beweise unternehmen, ist völlig lächerlich!"
"Ich möchte betonen, dass positive Testergebnisse keine klinische Infektion bedeuten. Das treibt lediglich die öffentliche Hysterie an, und alle Tests sollten aufhören!"

“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax every perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.
It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season.
“This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine. And that’s a very dangerous game.”
“Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence based on their effectiveness whatsoever. Seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying without any knowledge…putting the masks on.”
Hodkinson said social distancing is also “useless” because the virus can travel up to 30 m before landing.
He said positive tests, which do not accurately reflect whether you have the virus, are driving “public hysteria,” adding testing should stop unless you show up at a hospital with respiratory problems.
