Lockdown critic Dr. Matt Strauss can “AND WILL” be removed

Lockdown critic Dr. Matt Strauss can “AND WILL” be removed

as Haldimand-Norfolk's new top doc if there are “any concerns

NORTHERN, ONTARIO   ~~~~~~  September 14, 2021 (LSNews)  Doug Ford's chief medical officer of health told media — after questions were closed — that the interim appoint of Dr. Strauss “cannot be permanent”.

Ontario's chief medical officer of health Dr. Kieran Moore told a reporter that he can “and will” remove Dr. Matt Strauss from his new position as acting medical officer of health in Haldimand-Norfolk if there are “any concerns regarding the safety and health of that community”.

Dr. Strauss recently came out against the “purported mortality benefits of [the] lockdown[s]”, saying that “more liberal approaches have not demonstrated any mortality reduction from the more stringent policies”.

The remark about removing Dr. Strauss was made after a press conference featuring Dr. Moore, Health Minister Christine Elliott and Kaleed Rasheed, associate minister of digital government, in response to a question from the President of the Queen's Park Press Gallery, Colin D'Mello of CTV News Toronto.

Near the end of the conference, the moderator announced the “final question” of the day would be from Jeff Gray with the Globe and Mail, who quizzed Minister Rasheed on the development of the upcoming app.

After Rasheed answered Gray's followup question, D'Mello interrupted the moderator's attempt to close the floor:

MODERATOR: “Thanks everyone...”

D'MELLO: “Question for Dr. Moore... it is a very important question...”

MODERATOR: “Last question, Colin.”

D'MELLO: “Dr., thank you very much. Sorry, Dr. Moore, this is our only opportunity with you [and it's] once a week, so, Haldimand-Norfolk has confirmed that Dr. Matt Strauss will be the medical officer of health. Last week you had said he was unqualified because he didn't have the credentials needed, specifically to be a local medical officer of health. So, what is the next step here, from your perspective?

“I don't know if I said he's unqualified,” said Dr. Moore, before D'Mello interrupted him to amend that Moore said he didn't possess the “exact qualifications” needed for the position.
