Update New Zealand 08-01-22

A pretty quiet week in New Zealand, but we have had some communications that I want to share with you today. So there’s still some good information for you. Good morning, New Zealand chiropractors and allied health professionals. My name is Bharon Hoag. I am the Executive Director of The Chiropractic Defense Council coming to you today, Monday, August 1st, 2022 for your weekly update. 

A pretty quiet week, as I said, not a lot going on, no new information. We haven’t seen any new alerts or anything happening. However, we are starting to see an uprising from the general public, which has been very interesting. Always great to see civil disobedience being done in an appropriate manner. And that’s starting to happen. The government’s been very quiet. We’re still waiting to hear back on what’s happening with the appeal of the educators and healthcare workers.

That’s still just kind of sitting in limbo at the moment. But we have had no new activity that we’re aware of any chiropractors being fined or any allied health providers being fined, which is good news. Again, we’re reiterating we want you working. We want you to do what you do. We want you to do it without fear and knowing that we’re there to support you, and anything that changes or anything that moves, we’ll be sure to let you know, but at this point, there’s just not any real new information.

Not a lot going on this week. I will just continue to remind you of the bigness of what it is we’re doing. We do expect some things to start shifting near the end of the year. We’re not exactly sure what’s going on. We know The World Health Organization is doing some crazy stuff, and looking at trying to create a global pandemic force which is just very interesting looking at their ability to move in sovereign nations and dictate certain protocols. 

We’re doing some work on that because we don’t want them coming into New Zealand or Australia or Canada or the United States and start dictating things outside of the context of our own countries. It’s a very scary kind of talk, but we’re monitoring that with our legal teams, making sure that we can prevent anything like that from happening. So listen, I know that these have been crazy times. I know that there are still some of you that may be watching this, that have decided not to practice yet, and I’m not going to guilt you or make you feel inappropriate for doing that.

But what we’re doing is we’re taking a stand for the truth of what we know for the truth of our patients, of our communities, and not letting the governments just control, especially when the data does not support it. We’re not being defiant for the sake of being defiant. We’re standing in the place of truth. I need you to understand and maybe that’ll help you to feel more confident. Just take steps forward, to get back to serving your community the way that God has intended you to do so. And we want to make sure that we’re supporting you in that effort. 

So please make sure you reach out to us and communicate with us. If you have any issues, if you get contacted by The Ministry of Health or any of those types of issues, that’s why we are here. That’s what we do. And we’re going to make sure that you are protected to be able to continue to practice. 

With that, I’m going to bid you adieu for this week. I hope you have an incredible week. We’ll be back at you next week sharing any new information that we have. Please feel free to reach out to us. In the meantime, we love you. God bless you. (This is a computer-generated transcript. Please forgive any errors.)
