Hinshaw Defends Public Health Measures in Court


Deena Hinshaw, Alberta Chief Public Health Officer and witness for the Alberta government, tells court she wasn’t making public health orders, cabinet was.

Hinshaw was in Court Monday in the court case of Ingram et all vs. the Alberta government. The Alberta government is in court to defend its public health measures in the civil trial arising from a constitutional challenge launched more than a year ago.

“There was no approach that would have been an approach with no harms for anyone and we did our best to move that voluntary approach as far as we could and unfortunately it was not successful and we were left with few options to protect the healthcare system,” said Hinshaw.

During testimony, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) Dr. Deena Hinshaw refused to take responsibility for provincial lockdowns and mandates, repeatedly stating she made recommendations to cabinet and it was cabinet that made the orders.
