Media Invitation – NCI Toronto Hearings March 30th-April 1st 2023

Nationwide: You are invited to attend the National Citizens Inquiry (NCI) hearings in Toronto. NCI is a Canada-wide citizen-led and citizen-funded initiative to investigate governments’ COVID-19 policies in a fair and impartial manner that is completely independent from government. Through questioning led by lawyers, individual Canadians and experts will present evidence under oath to Independent Commissioners. The first three days of hearings have been held in Truro, NS.

The NCI’s purpose is to listen, to learn, and to recommend. What went right? What went wrong? How can Canadians and our governments better react to national crises in the future in a manner that balances the interests of all members of our society?

The Toronto hearings, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT, will be broadcast live on the NCI website and on the NCI Rumble Channel
