(Charity) University Of Toronto “Institute For Pandemics” Funded By Millers, Merck, Run By Ontario Science Table

Remember those conspiracy nuts saying this was never going to end? The University of Toronto Institute for Pandemics was launched in 2020. It hosts many of the same players from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, and the Ontario Science Table, such as Adalsteinn Brown, David Fisman and Colin Furness.

Fun fact: University of Toronto has several registered charities tied to its name. Much more on that later.

COVID-19, SARS and other urgent health threats began in animals. It’s time to drop misleading distinctions between human and animal health. Our underpinning “one health” approach considers human, animal and environmental health together.

Read between the lines on this. Not only is this meant to be about human health, but “fighting climate change” could easily be worked into the narrative.

The cause of pandemics is complex; beyond any single government or world body to address. But the opportunities are equally strong, if we can couple technological advances with an intimate knowledge of health systems, economics, the intersectional social determinants of health — and the credibility to influence change amid a historic crisis of trust in governments and the media. Universities must play a central role if we are to mitigate the human suffering and economic devastation caused by pandemics.

This group also promotes the globalist narrative that no country can do this on their own. There is also the implicit declaration that they will try to influence how the media perceives Government. This comes across as pushing propaganda.

The same self-declared “Ontario Science Table” experts who advocate for stripping the rights of Ontarians away will now be doing it directly from the U of T. As shown earlier, there is no real independence, either from Government, or the World Health Organization. It’s quite the rabbit hole.

This “institute” was started up thanks to a $1 million donation from the Vohra-Miller Foundation. About the couple that heads it:

Sabina Vohra-Miller graduated from the University of Toronto, with both a Bachelors and Masters in the pharmaceutical studies. She then spent several years in that field before starting up the Vohra-Miller Foundation with her husband. She co-founded the South Asian Health Network, which pushes vaccines and anti-racism, and founded Unambiguous Science, a website that pushes vaccines. She’s now on the Advisory Table of the Institute for Pandemics.

It’s a bit disturbing that Sabina either misrepresents (or simply is unaware) that these “vaccines” are not approved. They were given interim authorization for emergency use. But her website does little except shill and promote them.

Craig Miller spent years with Kijiji, which is an eBay company. He then moved on to Shopify, leaving in 2020. A few side notes: (a) eBay was founded by Pierre Omidyar, who was been involved in social change, and a “more informed media”; and (b) Shopify was contracted to make a contact tracing app with the Federal Government.

Craig also publicly pushes the climate change narrative. It will be interesting to see if (or how) the Institute for Pandemics will incorporate that into their agenda.

Both of them seem to have ties to organizations that will benefit from prolonging this “pandemic”.

Merck Canada’s $3-million investment will help the centre’s diverse mix of public health researchers to better understand the decision-making of individuals and communities around whether and when to receive immunizations. With expertise in vaccine science, social and behavioural health, equity and health systems, the centre’s faculty members will produce scientific research to aid the Ontario government, policy-makers and public health advocates around the world in increasing public knowledge of and access to immunizations.

Also consider that Merck Canada (the drug company) donated $3 million to the Institute for Pandemics. From their perspective, it makes sense. More pandemics mean a larger market for more drugs. Of course, with tax rebates from the Canada Revenue Agency, this $3 million gift will cost considerably less. This school has quite a few pharma donors.

It was covered previously how several current Medical Officers of Health are either Professors at U of T, or have other ties to the school. This sets up an obvious conflict of interest.

  • Barbara Yaffe – Ontario Deputy Medical Officer
  • Eileen De Villa – Toronto Chief Medical Officer
  • Vinita Dubey – Toronto Associate Medical Officer of Health
  • Lisa Berger – Toronto Associate Medical Officer of Health
  • Christine Navarro – Toronto Associate Medical Officer of Health
  • Avis Lynn Noseworthy – Medical Officer of Health for the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge
  • Vera Etches – Ottawa Deputy Medical Officer of Health
  • Brent Moloughney – Ottawa Associate Medical Officer
  • Lawrence C. Loh – Peel Medical Officer of Health
  • Hamidah Meghani – Halton Region Medical Health Officer
  • Nicola Mercer – Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Medical Officer (U of T Medical School)
  • Mustafa Hirji – Niagara Acting Medical Officer of Health (U of T graduate)
  • Elizabeth Richardson – Hamilton Medical Officer of Health (U of T graduate)

Adalsteinn Brown is the head of the Ontario Science Table, and the Institute for Pandemics. He also runs the Dalla Lana School for Public Health. This effectively means he is the boss of other Professors in that Department. How will the power dynamics work here, as these MOH are supposed to be independent?

Moreover, there are other U of T Professors on the Science Table and the Institute for Pandemics. Will these create conflicts with the MOH, and their dual roles? Why isn’t all of this publicly discussed?

  • Students’ Alzheimer’s Alliance at the University of Toronto (SAAUT)
  • Scholarship Bursary & Education Committee Medical Alumni Association of University of Toronto
  • Student Christian Movement in the University of Toronto
  • The Encumeical Chaplaincy at the University of Toronto
  • The Governing Council of the University of Toronto
  • Trust Under Will of Reuben W Leonard for University of Toronto
  • University of Toronto International Health Program (UTIHP)
  • University of Toronto Community Radio Inc.
  • University of Toronto Schools

Interesting bit of information: there isn’t just 1 charity tied to U of T. There are 9 of them. However, only a few of them are of concern for this article. The Governing Council of the University is by far the biggest one. In their recent tax filings, this NGO claimed to be financing work and research globally. These include:

-UNITED STATES
-(Other countries in Europe)
-(Other countries in Asia and Oceania)
-UNITED KINGDOM
-FRANCE
-(Other countries in Africa)
-SPAIN
-UGANDA
-KENYA
-THAILAND
-GERMANY
-ZAMBIA

-INDIA
-REPUBLIC OF NORTH MACEDONIA

-ISRAEL
-JAMAICA
-MEXICO
-BRAZIL
-JAPAN
-UKRAINE
-COLOMBIA
-GUYANA
-CAMBODIA
-GHANA

So much for being a Canadian school. Now, how much money are they actually taking in and spending each year?

The Governing Council of the University takes in some $3 billion annually. They also pay their Executives very, very well. But it’s easier to do when the donations received are subsidized by the public.

It’s worth pointing out that this “charity” operates plenty of programs abroad. This is likely since many of their donors have interests abroad. A more detailed look at their financials would be appreciated, but here are some of the more generous ones listed by the school.

Is all of this going towards education and research? Or is it to be used to justify draconian measures UNDER THE PRETENSE of education and research?

  1. WOW! Great job on the research! I wonder how many Jesuits (or Jesuit trained individuals) work at the U of T?
