On Tuesday, The Board of Health, the health committee of the Toronto City Council, gathered for a virtual meeting to discuss the city's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This meeting was open to the general public, and it featured multiple speakers who shared their thoughts on the local administration's approach to dealing with the city's outbreak.
One of those speakers was resident Dan Hartman. He talked about his son, Sean, who had a terrible reaction to the Pfizer vaccine. (Related: Investigation proves Pfizer vaccine offers less than 1% protection against COVID-19.)
"My son played hockey … since he was eight years old," said the Toronto native during his testimony. "He took a year off for COVID and he got extremely bored sitting in his bedroom. He decided to go back to hockey this year, and to do that he had to have a vaccination to play hockey."
Minor hockey clubs across the Canadian province of Ontario have imposed COVID-19 vaccine mandates on anyone who wants to play. All young athletes aged 12 and up were asked to provide proof of vaccination to participate.
Sean received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Aug. 25. Almost immediately after, the teenager started experiencing adverse effects due to the vaccine. "He had a rash all over his neck and face and brown circles around his eyes," explained Dan.
On Aug. 29, Sean went to the hospital. He was sent home with a prescription for ibuprofen.
"On the morning of Sept. 27, his mother found him dead on the floor beside his bed," said Dan. "All he wanted to do was play hockey."
Grieving, Dan and his wife ordered an autopsy to try and figure out what happened to their son.
Unfortunately, the autopsy did not provide Dan with many answers. The coroner refused to rule on Sean's possible cause of death, merely listing his death as "unascertained." This conclusion is found in only two percent of autopsies.
But the autopsy did reveal that Sean had a "slightly enlarged heart" at the time of his passing. Sean has never been diagnosed with any heart condition.
Not satisfied with the results of this autopsy, Dan sought a second opinion and sent the autopsy report to "a second well-known pathologist in Canada who wants to remain anonymous for fear of losing his job."
According to the doctor, the COVID-19 vaccine is the main cause of Sean's death.
"I know in my heart and soul, I believe the second pathologist that the vaccine killed my son," he said during his testimony. "It's not as rare as everyone thinks it is. It's happening. It's on Twitter every day, people dying from this. I'm not an anti-vaxxer at all, I'm really not. But I think there is something wrong with this one."
Dan later questioned how safe the COVID-19 vaccine is, and how he believes it has killed so many people. "Nobody ever talks about deaths, and it is happening, more than anyone knows, and it is just being denied and silenced," he said.
He added that, when he found out the Pfizer vaccine killed his son, he tried to figure out whether he could sue Pfizer. When he learned that he couldn't, he said "that in itself tells me they knew people were going to die and they are just immune from any accountability."
Post-vaccination heart conditions like myocarditis are very common, especially among people who take the mRNA vaccines like Pfizer. Young men are also at a much higher risk of experiencing heart conditions that appear after getting vaccinated.
