Update New Zealand 09-05-22
Very exciting things are happening in Australia that is going to affect New Zealand in the coming days and I cannot wait to share with you what’s going on. 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, September 5th, 2022, for your weekly update.
Very exciting stuff. Queensland in Australia, as of the second this past Friday, has relieved the mandates for private healthcare. They did keep it in place for emergency care facilities and nursing homes, but they did get rid of it for all other forms of private healthcare. That’s very significant. It’s the first real tangible release that we’ve seen in this entire ordeal that we’ve been on for the last year.
Not only is that happening, but there’s already rumbling throughout Australia about the ability of providers or individuals that were forced to get the vaccination, they are now able to sue their providers and their providers are able to sue OPRA, which is their government agency that monitors all healthcare. It’s just unbelievable what’s unraveling in Australia right now.
The reason that’s important for you is we believe that that’s going to take away New Zealand’s ability to continue to be on this island of their doing what’s best. When you start seeing neighboring countries in the same hemisphere starting to release the requirements, it makes it harder for them to stand on that.
We still believe things are going to let go in New Zealand in September. I don’t know how they can continue to labor on this, but it’s still been very quiet. We’ve had no new complaints. They’re still relatively laying off the individuals that they did target a few months back. We’re just still believing that things are going to release here very, very soon.
Now with that being said, we’re also wanting to be proactive about moving forward and making sure that things like this can’t happen again. I think I’ve shared with you before the lawsuit that we’re putting in place in Australia that goes after the government’s ability to create any type of mandatory behavior when there are other therapeutics that are as good or better than what they’re actually mandating. We’ve got a very detailed lawsuit that we are putting together in Australia that’s not just going to affect Australia, it’s going to affect New Zealand and other parts of the world because it sets a precedent about what governments can and cannot do in these areas of pandemics.
I want you to be looking out for that. We’ve been raising money. I’m about $100,000 away from hitting our goal. If you or someone you know has deep pockets and wants to be a part of a piece of legislation, or litigation rather, that’s going to be pretty pivotal in the history of this whole thing, we would sure love for you to reach out to us as we’re still trying to raise the money to be able to push that case through.
But we’re very excited about that, but these are the things that we’re trying to do to not only affect what’s happening now, but what we believe is going to be happening in the future. We know that this isn’t the end of it all. We need to continue to stick together. We need to continue to move forward proactively to make sure that we’re putting things in place that really do protect the rights of you and your ability to practice and live as you choose, so really good stuff.
Finally seeing some breakthrough. I cannot wait to be able to report to you that the same thing has happened there in New Zealand, but I do believe it’s coming. I think all the signs are leading that way. Those of you that have stuck around, those of you that are just now getting back into practice, just know that we’ve got your back. We’re going to continue to support you, but we believe the day is coming when you’re not going to have to worry about this particular issue.
We can move on to being proactive and fixing things in other ways. We love you. We appreciate you. Have a great, great week this week knowing that things are starting to turn in our direction. We love you. God bless you. We’ll talk to you next week. (This is a computer-generated transcript. Please excuse any errors.)
