The truth about the 6700 victims in long term care centers with Sylvain Laforest

By Joanne of Arc for Quebec Life Coalition — Photo : AdobeStock

Have we euthanized our seniors in long term care center (CHSLD) between the spring of 2020 and 2021?

The "CHSLD - Je me souviens" documentary ["Long term care centers - I remember"], about the hecatomb of nearly 6700 seniors in those residencies, has been circulating on social networks since September 30th, 2022.

The french group called "Macarons de la Dignité" organized a private screening of the film in September, which I attended and where I met the documentary director, Sylvain Laforest. We had a first interview during that evening.

Sylvain Laforest during the private screening of his documentary « CHSLD - Je me souviens »

Sylvain has directed more than a hundred documentaries for major broadcasting networks, then worked as a journalist for the news channel RT-France as well as in video journalism for Nous-TV St-Hyacinthe. Currently, he lives from the sale of his books and dedicates his time to projects that are close to his heart, such as the making of this documentary on abandoned seniors in Quebec's long term care centers.

The following is our second interview, which goes into more detail about the drama that occurred in Quebec's long term care residencies. Before our interview, Mr. Laforest insisted that I be on first-name terms with him.

Joanna: At what point did you realize that something was wrong with the long term care centers (CHSLD)?

Sylvain Laforest: As early as March 2020. By the way, I wrote a book in 2015 called « La déprogrammation » ["The Deprogramming"] in which I already talked about a pandemic, so when it started, I knew it was the operation they were launching. However, I didn't think it would last as long as it did. When I saw the hecatomb that was being caused in the senior residencies, I began to ask around to find out what was going on and I saw that it was the government that was putting in place measures that were absolutely grotesque and that were certain to make victims, because they were talking about a lack of care from the start.

When a government encourages panic rather than problem solving, you see, already that it is in a mode of system destruction.

Joanna: How did you find the people for the testimonies of the documentary "CHSLD - Je me souviens"?

S.L: It was the Macarons de la Dignité gang that approached me. At first, it was to promote them. Then they proposed to interview people about what happened and to build a promotional campaign from that. So, I said to them "If I can get these people to come and do interviews, I can do long interviews and make a documentary", so I suggested some names. I approached Robert Béliveau and Lucie Mandeville. Alain Roy was proposed to me and Claude Laferrière, he is a well-known lawyer who was already denouncing a lot. The anonymous nurse came forward when I made the call for the general public to come and witness through their personal stories. 

I wanted to touch on several areas. With Lucie Mandeville, I had the psychological aspect, with Dr. Béliveau, I had the medical aspect, and so on. I have made 115 documentaries so far and I'm very used to structuring those. The other documentaries I have done were for the mainstream media.

Joanna: Can we conclude today that the surge in deaths that have been called "coronavirus-related" that are counted up to date in long term care centers in Quebec is completely false?

S.L: What they have done with their measures is that they have accelerated the deaths of people who would have survived another year or two. People go to long term care residencies at the end of life, they are already very fragile. In order for the pandemic (which is ultimately the flu) to look like a pandemic, they had to cause some sort of mortality peak. False cases, false emergencies, you can create them statistically, but deaths, you can't. Either people die, or people don't die. When people die, you inflate the statistics.

If you look at the statistics, the deaths that occurred in the spring of 2020, it's how the first wave was created. But if you compare the spring of 2020, with the year 2021 and 2022, it balances out. So these are people for whom we have accelerated their death. We can observe the same stratagy everywhere, in Italy, France, the State of New York, etc.

This first false wave was created with a lack of care.

The documentary makes us realize that simply denying access to these people’s natural family caregivers is the end for them. What's the point of going on living if you can't even see the people you love anymore? The people who are your last link to life...

You can't just lie about the statistics and hope to create a wave from the common flu.

How a drag queen wants to steal Christmas

The Santa Claus parade is coming to Montreal. This November 19, young and old alike will line the streets of the city to watch a procession of reindeer, elves, Santa Claus and … a drag queen? If for you “one of these things is not like the other”, then you may want to check out our petition to the Montreal Downtown Business Development Corporation (MDBDC), organizers of the annual Santa Claus Parade in downtown Montreal.

They seem to think that after two years of forced confinement, Montreal families will want to come back to an abandoned Montreal downtown core to watch a winter-themed LGBT pride parade featuring “Barbada”, the city’s “lovable” drag queen, who stirred controversy earlier in the year by touring the city’s children’s libraries with his “drag queen story hours”.

Some might consider these “drag queens” to be “lighthearted” and “fun”, but there’s a sinister side to this trend. Via these “funny and eccentric” characters, every other day in our schools and libraries, children are being conditioned into believing that men can be women, and women can be men. These lies, repeated over and over, have dire consequences on the mental and physical health of our children. In the US, as many as 121,882 children between the ages of 6 and 17 were diagnosed with gender dysphoria or confusion about their sex, between 2017 and 2021. Tragically, many of these children have gone on to undertake dangerous and irreversible hormone therapy and surgeries, which will mark them forever.

I for one have had it with every single cultural event being appropriated by LGBT ideologues and turned into a child-indoctrination session for their anti-family movement. If you, like me, would just like to have an event or two represent traditional family values, then sign and share our petition today:

God bless,

Georges Buscemi, President
Quebec Life Coalition / Campagne Québec-Vie

p.s. You don’t have to be from Montreal to sign this petition. Montreal, and the province of Quebec in general, is like a laboratory for the rest of Canada. If they try something “progressive” and subversive here without it encountering any resistance, then they won’t hesitate to export it to the rest of the country and beyond. So please sign, wherever you are from. Let’s work together to protect our kids and stop this “drag queen” trend from ruining childhoods and Christmas itself!

Controversy surrounds choice of "drag queen" as "star fairy" at Montreal Santa parade

By Joanne of Arc for Quebec Life Coalition — Photo : Unsplash: Parade/Wikipedia: Barbada

A transvestite will be present as the ''Star Fairy'' at this year's Montreal Santa Claus Parade.

After two years of cancellation due to the pandemic, Barbada, a transvestite, will be present at the Santa Claus Parade on St-Catherine Street in the Quartier des spectacles, on November 19th, starting at 11 am. The event is organized by Montréal Centre-Ville, a non-profit organization with nearly 5,000 member businesses.

This year marks the 70th edition of the Santa Claus Parade, but it is the first time that a transvestite will participate in it. According to the Montreal Downtown website, this is an annual tradition for more than 400,000 spectators, and the event will also be aired on the TVA network on Sunday, November 20th at 4 p.m. According to organizers, this is the largest holiday event in Quebec.

"The Santa Claus Parade is a great family tradition that has been going on for 70 years in downtown Montreal. It inaugurates the winter season, which we hope will be just as exceptional as the summer we just had. Whether it's to welcome Santa Claus, spend a holiday with family, gather with colleagues or start holiday shopping, downtown is still the place to be for all Quebecers," said Glenn Castanheira, Executive Director of Montréal Centre-Ville.

Since the announcement of drag queen Barbada's participation in the Montreal Santa Claus parade on November 19th downtown, the outrage was evident on social networks and is spreading, according to Frédérique de Simone of the Journal de Montréal.

"Late-term abortions are performed here every week" - Nurse at the Jewish General Hospital

By Joanne of Arc for Quebec Life Coalition — Photo : Unsplash

A nurse at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal informed Quebec Life Coalition that late-term abortions, i.e. at 21 weeks gestation or more, are performed on a "weekly" basis at this famous Montreal hospital. 

According to the hospital's website, the hospital was founded in 1934 and is considered a teaching hospital that is one of the largest and busiest acute care hospitals in the province. 

A nurse at the hospital, who wishes to remain anonymous, contacted us after realizing that an abortion had taken place in her workplace at 24 weeks of pregnancy for the eugenic reason of having Down syndrome.  

"I work at the Jewish General Hospital as a nurse. Last week, I discovered that there was a woman 24 weeks pregnant with a child with Down syndrome who was in the case room for a "therapeutic abortion". I was devastated to see such a late-term abortion take place at my workplace. Because I was so upset, I asked Brian [Vice President of Quebec Life Coalition - ed.] to pray for this child and his mother. Unfortunately, the abortion took place and I still pray that the woman will realize the atrocity that happened and seek healing through God's mercy" shares the nurse.  

"I saw another "therapeutic abortion" on the schedule this week at 33 weeks, it happened again, I never realized before how often they take place" - Photo: Unsplash

She adds, "I had heard before that abortions take place at the hospital where I work, obviously, but for the most part I was under the impression that they take place at a less advanced stage, at less weeks, not to say it's better, but the procedure is much less complicated at less weeks. I thought the hospital did them up to 8 weeks, but I learned through a colleague that late-stage abortions also take place in the case room and that we have to respect that..." 

She also sadly added, "I saw another therapeutic abortion on the schedule this week at 33 weeks, it happened again, I never realized previously how often they happen." 

After our interview, the nurse reported to me that according to her co-worker, these "procedures" occur on a weekly basis.  

She concluded, "What I find frightening is that this child was aborted at 24 weeks at the hospital where I work while we have an excellent intensive care unit and we have so many babies at 24 or 27 weeks who are living because of this intensive care that we provide! So it's stupefying. If the patient wants to keep the baby, we do everything we can to keep the baby alive. We put it in an incubator, we give it oxygen and even a tube to feed it. We do so many interventions because the mother wants to keep the child. But, if the mother suddenly decides she wants an abortion (at 21 weeks or more), that's what we end up doing. "

She cancels her son's late-term abortion at the Jewish General Hospital of Montreal

Samuel David at 9 months old with the 3 other children and his family

By Joanne of Arc (Quebec Life Coalition) - Photo: Catherina David

Catherina David is a stay at home mom of four kids who contacted us to share the beautiful testimony of her youngest child, Samuel David. She reached out to us at first for prayer and support on her pregnancy journey. Today, she wants to share with us, in detail, how her story unveiled. She discovered she was pregnant at almost 9 weeks into her pregnancy while she was moving from Quebec to Ontario.

She was very excited and happy about her new pregnancy initially. Her doctor asked her to do an additional test when she was 5 months pregnant, through which she learned that her baby had trisomy 21 (Down syndrome).

After having delivered three perfectly healthy children, it was certainly a big shock to her. She admits that she was devastated and didn't know how to react. She cried the whole day when she found out the news, and then the whole week after it.

When she met with her doctor after learning the news, he said to her “I leave it up to you whether you want to keep the baby, if you want to continue the pregnancy or if you want to terminate it we will make it as easy as possible for you, but you will have to go to the hospital and have a regular childbirth delivery”.

She went to the Jewish General hospital for the abortion, before she decided to change her mind and keep the baby. Catherina, was guided by her faith and a dream she believes was from God that helped her resist the temptation to end the life of her child.

We haven't finished pushing back against this insane idea of killing handicapped babies

Thank you to everyone who has so far signed our petition against child euthanasia in Canada. Reminder: Once again Quebec is initiating the next step in Canada's race to the abyss. Dr. Louis Roy, representing the Quebec College of Physicians before the House of Commons Special Joint Committee on "Medical Assistance in Dying", recently proposed the euthanasia of infants with "severe malformations" and "severe and serious syndromes". You can read the rest of this sordid story here.

If you know someone who could sign, or haven't yet done so yourself, please read and share this petition now, as we are trying to get over 1000 signatures. And we haven't finished pushing back against this insane idea of killing handicapped babies. On top of this petition, we will soon be postcarding around Montreal, where the College of Physicians is headquartered, to inform the local population about the dark plans being hatched right in their midst. 

So once again, I urge you to sign our petition against the euthanasia of infants and to have it signed around you. Let's say NO to the killing of so-called imperfect children.

For Life,

Georges Buscemi, President

The 40 Days for Life in Sherbrooke

By Joanne of Arc for Quebec Life Coalition - Photo: Joanne of Arc

This fall, hundreds of communities across North America and several Canadian cities simultaneously organized a 40 Days for Life campaign from September 28 to November 6, 2022.

The 40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:

  • 40 days of prayer and fasting to end abortion
  • 40 days of peaceful vigil
  • 40 days of community awareness

I was present in Sherbrooke on the 31st day to report on this event. Brian Jenkins, who is the leader of the team, was on place to give me a warm welcome. This man spends 12 hours a day outside, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. during the 40 days, as an advocate for life. He takes a break at noon, during which Mr. Gerard replaces him, for the entire length of the 40-day vigil. The vigil participants vary from day to day, but Brian and Gerard are present daily.

By law, Brian and the other participants must not be within 50 meters of a facility where abortions take place, in this case the CLSC Belvédère (Local Community Services Center). So far, there have been no counter-demonstrators, whereas last year a pro-choice group of 100 people gathered against 3-4 people who were doing the vigil. Gerard shares with me that the Sherbrooke police supported the vigil participants last year, and since then they have been supported by the Sherbrooke authorities. Brian has a working relationship with the police of Sherbrooke and can count on them for their help to maintain their safety.

Why Quebec again?

Once again - and this is to my great shame and pain - Quebec is initiating the next step in Canada's race to the abyss. It was Dr. Louis Roy, representing the Quebec College of Physicians before the House of Commons Special Joint Committee on "Medical Assistance in Dying", who recently proposed the euthanasia of infants with "severe malformations" and "severe and serious syndromes" for whom their "prospect of survival is virtually nil, so to speak". You can read the rest of this sordid story here.

First, I urge you to sign our petition against the euthanasia of infants and to have it signed around you. The situation is serious: the holocaust of unborn children not having quenched the bloodlust of the evil spirit that animates our contemporary societies, we have "out of compassion" moved on to the elderly, the sick and now to newborns, who will now be able to benefit from "special help", from "health care", which consists in injecting a human with a deadly poison. We are now to kill born children!

Why Quebec again?

Why do some Quebecers seem to take pride in being at the sharp edge of this "progressive" spear that is piercing the politic body of the country and killing it? Because this is not the first time that someone from here has set up iniquitous laws for the whole country.

In fact, in the last 60 years, Quebec has often been the origin of the culture of Death in Canada: it has been the launching pad for both abortion (the supreme court decisions involving Henry Morgentaler, Chantal Daigle) and euthanasia (Quebec National Assembly in 2014) as well as for the rejection of religion in the public square (the so-called “Quiet Revolution” of the early sixties and, more recently, bill 21 which forbids government-funded workers from expressing their religious beliefs at the workplace, including classrooms and daycares).

The country will never be pro-life so long as Quebec, probably the single most “progressive” (read: pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia, anti-family, anti-God) jurisdiction in North America, continues to lead the rest of Canada into the abyss.

However ably pro-lifers in English Canada forge a strong chain of pro-life provinces across the country, that chain will only be as strong as its weakest link. And so long as Quebec remains a most weak link, shot through with the rust of moral and spiritual decadence, pro-lifers in other provinces will work in vain.

This is not to say that Quebec is responsible for all the ills in Canada. Far from it. But in Quebec we do have a special responsibility to the rest of the country. We must do more and better in Quebec if we are ever to hope to reach our goal of making Canada pro-life.

As the proud President of Quebec Life Coalition, I solemnly pledge to do better for Quebec and for Canada. This year we have hired two more people, our reporter Joanna and our political operations director Arpad, with the help of our loyal partners Campaign Life Coalition. With your generous help, we will continue to strengthen our pro-life and pro-God presence in Quebec, for where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more!

"I had an abortion... out of fear" - Lise Dufour testifies

By Joanne of Arc for Quebec Life Coalition - Photo: Lise Dufour/Josée Poulin

Lise Dufour is the author of the book: J'ai avorté... par peur. Avec Lui, espérer encore! [I aborted...out of fear. With Him...still hoping!]. This woman does not consider herself a researcher or an expert on the subject, but she is a seeker of God. She has a deep respect for Life since she came from darkness to light in a journey of grief centered on the unborn child. As she says, "Life is God's most precious gift and it is eternal."

She therefore "dreams of a society that respects Life and is not turned toward death," quite simply.

Lise Dufour at the launch of her book in Quebec City - Photo: Josée Poulin

Lise just launched her book in Quebec City on October 10, 2022. Brian Jenkins, Vice-President of QLC, was there. He reports that there was a good number of women supporting her and a warm atmosphere. At the end of her talk, she shared her testimony, and Brian called it a "cathartic" (liberating) moment. Several other women then decided to pay tribute to Mrs Dufour’s courage and shared their testimonies.

The author agreed to answer my questions after I read her book. Her book is a testament to her journey after undergoing the abortion of her daughter at the age of 30.

Joanne for QLC: Can you share with me how long you have you been testifying about your story of aborting your daughter Elizabeth?

Lise Dufour: I have been talking about it more openly since the unborn child-centered grief journey with Benedetta Foà (an Italian post-abortion psychologist) in September 2013, more than 25 years after the abortion.

I have testified on a few occasions, but it was through more personal exchanges with women that allow them to open up a bit about their own experience.

Joanne for QLC: Recently, you launched your book J'ai avorté... par peur/Avec Lui espérer encore (I had an abortion... out of fear... with Him... still hoping) in Quebec City in which you testify about your own abortion. I think that your testimony can open the door for other women to give themselves permission to express themselves. Is it common for women to shut themselves off after an abortion and suffer in solitude?

Lise Dufour: I can't answer for all women, but the ones I've met have often told me that it was the first time they've talked about it. I believe that a woman who has had an abortion quickly closes the door on this experience so as not to suffer too much from it. Does she suffer in solitude? No doubt... That is why I wrote this book. I don't know if it will have the desired effect on women who have undergone an abortion, that is, to open their secret garden. I hope with all my heart that it will, so that they can free themselves from a huge burden. Revisiting this experience by naming the feelings experienced can do them a lot of good and all the healing journeys I have participated in demonstrate this. I see women and men straighten up, get back on their feet and become radiant. They come back to Life!

Interview with Dr. Robert Béliveau, an expert in a documentary about victims in the Quebec Long Term Care Homes (2020-2021)

By Joanne of Arc (Quebec Life Coalition) - Photo: Documentary "CHSLD - Je me souviens"/Joanne of Arc/Adobe Stock

Dr. Robert Béliveau is a retired family physician. He is one of the experts who participated in Sylvain Laforest's documentary "CHSLD - Je me souviens" [Long Term Care Homes– I Remember]. This documentary, which has been circulating on social media networks since September 30, was made to pay tribute to the 6 700 victims of Long Term Care Homes in Quebec, who were seriously affected from spring 2020 to spring 2021.

The purpose of this production is, above all, to remember that it is our duty, both collectively and individually, to uphold the dignity and sanctity of all human life. One of the topics that was discussed in the documentary was the mandatory vaccination of seniors in Long Term Care Homes, even against their will.

In the medical community, opinions were and remain divided on this subject. On the other hand, Dr. Béliveau clearly states his position in the documentary.

"The first thing we have to realize is that we are currently in a system that is completely corrupt [...] It doesn’t mean that all doctors are corrupt. You have to take responsibility and not let yourself be blindly dictated to by others who have conflicts of interest. The NIH, the CDC, Health Canada, they are infiltrated by Big Pharmas. There should be total independence and Pharmas should not be involved at all. There are still doctors who see things clearly. "

Dr. Béliveau also agreed to speak with Quebec Life Coalition at the private screening of the documentary that took place in Montreal. The following is our interview.
