Title: Lawsuit Alleges Negligence and Suppression of Information in Pfizer Vaccine Injury Case
A lawsuit has been filed by Carrie Sakamoto, a mother of three from Lethbridge, Alberta, who claims to have suffered permanent Bell’s Palsy as a result of receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The lawsuit names several government health authorities and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, accusing them of negligence, providing false and incomplete information, and suppressing truthful and reliable information about vaccine injuries. This case raises concerns about the safety and reliability of COVID-19 vaccines and the handling of information regarding potential side effects.
The Lawsuit and Allegations
Carrie Sakamoto, previously healthy, received the Pfizer vaccine and began experiencing health problems shortly afterward. Her condition deteriorated to the point where she was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy, a condition that paralyzed her face, mouth, and tongue. She faced difficulties with swallowing, eating, and blinking and experienced swelling in her brain, vomiting, and a sensation of her “brain being on fire.” Sakamoto spent 17 days in the hospital and underwent extensive rehabilitation to regain basic functions.
As a result of severe and permanent Bell’s Palsy, Sakamoto contends that she now suffers from various chronic health issues, including facial paralysis, hearing loss, vision impairment, anxiety, depression, memory loss, cognitive impairment, and sleep disruption. In order to accommodate her medical needs, Sakamoto and her family were forced to sell their rural family farm and relocate to an urban area.
Lawsuit Accusations and Compensation
The lawsuit alleges that government health officials, including the federal Minister of Health, the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, Health Canada, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, were negligent in providing accurate and complete information on vaccine injuries. It also accuses them of intentionally suppressing and censoring information about potential harms related to the Pfizer vaccine. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is similarly accused of disseminating false and incomplete information.
Sakamoto has received compensation from the Canadian Vaccine Injury Program; however, her lawyers argue that the amount is inadequate given the extent of her suffering and financial losses. Eva Chipiuk, one of Sakamoto’s lawyers, points to the responsibility of those who promoted COVID-19 vaccines as safe and effective with minimal risk, stating that the representations made by the government and the CBC resulted in serious permanent harm to Sakamoto.
Empowered Canadians and the Institute for Justice and Freedom
Empowered Canadians, an organization dedicated to empowering and mobilizing citizens, is supporting Sakamoto’s case. Their mission is to hold the government accountable. The Institute for Freedom and Justice (IFJ), a charitable organization focusing on promoting an understanding of the Canadian Constitution, is also involved in this matter.
Carrie Sakamoto’s lawsuit alleges negligence, suppression of information, and harm caused by the Pfizer vaccine. The case raises questions about the transparency and accuracy of vaccine information provided by government health authorities and the media. It highlights the importance of comprehensive reporting on vaccine side effects to ensure public trust in the vaccination process. The outcome of this lawsuit may shed further light on the accountability and responsibility of those involved in public health communication.
