Toronto Star: Everything about Lyme disease is steeped in controversy. Now some doctors are too afraid to treat patients
[CanLyme Note: In the below article there are outrageous, disgraceful, and dangerous comments by Tara Moriarty and Todd Hatchette. Tara says a study showed labs returning 60% false positive test results which is simply not true, or in other words, a blatant lie. That study was not powered to determine true positive or negative results. The conclusion of that study was, Continues →

Nov 22, 2018 Papineau case delayed 3 years!! The delays in the Papineau case against his physicians may end up being a Charter of Rights case.

Canadian Frank Papineau sues physicians Dr. Pablo Romero-Sierra, Dr. Johnny Brisebois in Ontario Superior court. Trial to start November 26th, 2018
[UPDATE: This case has now been adjourned (postponed) by the courts for 3 years!! They allege they do not have the judicial resources to hear this until then, then there will likely be another excuse. Was this a political decision? How does this postponement compare to other adjourments?] Nov. 12, 2018 Ontario, Canada resident Frank Papineau has had enough and Continues →

Oct. 2, 2018 Caledon Enterprise newspaper Janice Barry was at a vet office in Alliston with her dog when a poster caught her eye. It listed the symptoms of Lyme disease in dogs. It sounded familiar.

One in three ticks in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, carries Lyme disease yet no help for the tens of thousands chronically ill across the country due to false information.
[CanLyme note: For decades Canadian health care leadership have downplayed the prevalence of Lyme disease (borreliosis) in ticks based upon poor surveillance protocol while ignoring reams of published research. They further downplayed the prevalence of this disease in humans with an outrageous, dangerous and deadly adherence to a testing policy that they knew missed most cases. Canadians must be fearful of Continues →

Lyme-disease-carrying ticks a growing problem in Ontario as ticks climb tops of tall grass waiting for victims
[CanLyme Note: this article includes some information we disagree with. Treating with a single dose of antibiotics lacks GRADE level science to support it as an effective approach and was a closed door decision showing arrogance, not ethical science. Opposing experts and advocates were not consulted therefore the policy is invalid – longer durations of antibiotics are needed.] from ‘FARMERS Continues →
Far-Reaching Dispersal of Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Lato-Infected Blacklegged Ticks by Migratory Songbirds in Canada
https://doi.org/10.3390/healthcare6030089 Abstract Lyme disease has been documented in northern areas of Canada, but the source of the etiological bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (Bbsl) has been in doubt. We collected 87 ticks from 44 songbirds during 2017, and 24 (39%) of 62 nymphs of the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, were positive for Bbsl. We provide the first report of Bbsl-infected, songbird-transported I. scapularis in Cape Continues →

To Hell and Back: denial of access to health care in Canada. Another disgraceful failure of the Public Health Agency of Canada, now a Human Rights issue
June 19th, 2018 This is another example of the disgraceful anti-science, anti-collaborative management of health care in Canada. Federal and provincial health authorities, devoid of oversight by patients and their experts have total disregard for the life and well being of untold thousands of Canadians whose numbers are growing annually. Holding meeting after meeting with no progress, no action plan, no Continues →
Borrelia miyamotoi rash is breaking the myth that rashes caused by borreliosis (Lyme disease) must expand beyond 5 cm.
Canada has Borrelia miyamotoi and other borrelia from coast to coast. The standard guidelines imposed on doctors state myths about rashes that science has shown us are not correct… The guidelines state that 60-80% of people will get a rash, NOT TRUE Only a small subset of the borrelia bacteria will cause any rash. Rashes must expand to 5 cm Continues →

The majority will not get the rash so their diagnoses will be missed. Then Dr. Gregson goes on to say they want clinics across Canada like the one in BC at BC Women’s Continues →
[CanLyme Note: The Lyme disease disaster for Canadians is an excellent example of how the ‘self-regulating’ medical colleges and medical associations have woven themselves into the publicly funded health care system positioning themselves as the only experts, and policing any physicians who disagree with them, out of business. No outside scientific expertise is allowed no matter how much harm is done Continues →
