Mr. Wayne Llewellyn tells of his attempts to supplement his retirement income during the pandemic but was disallowed due to the mandates. He filed complaints but got no results, “Even when I filed a complaint for the violation of my privacy and I got that letter from the privacy office saying that the provincial government didn’t have the authority to do what it did under those two pieces of legislation, I thought for sure there would have been some kind of sanction put against Dr. Henry, but there wasn’t.”
Good afternoon. Next witness is Wayne Llewellyn, so if you could give us your full name, and then spell it for us, and then I’ll do an oath with you.
My name is Wayne Llewellyn, W-A-Y-N-E. My last name is spelled, L-L-E-W-E-L-L-Y-N.
Do you promise that the evidence you’re going to give today will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?
I do swear.
I’m going to bring you really quickly up to March of 2020. You had spent 35 years working for a major municipality and you retired in 2011, is that correct?
You presently live in Penticton?
And you’re starting to enjoy some of the hobbies that you wanted to explore during your retirement. So as 2020 came, tell us what happened.
Well, March of 2020, I was on track to supplement my income by playing guitar in wineries, as well as serving in wineries and stuff like that. It was actually a dream job and that added up to about 10 per cent over top of my pension income, so I thought it was pretty good, living the right life.
I was walking home in March of 2020, walking up the hill, and I heard about these lockdowns and so on, and I said something just does not feel right here. Two weeks turned into two months, so I started to do my own research.
Before I get into all of the other stuff that I’ve done, what is really driving me in all of this is, I believe that I’ve got one family member for sure that’s been vaccine-injured. She’s a sister-in-law that lives in Ontario. She got both injections and ended up in hospital for about six weeks. She was initially diagnosed as having multiple sclerosis. They ran every test under the sun and eventually admitted that it was the vaccines that caused the injury. Now she can barely walk without a cane, and her children have to help her do basic things like get groceries.
Another family member, the dearest person in the world to me, got an injection in May of 2021 and six weeks later had to have their appendix out. I’ve also got three grandchildren and I can’t see them living in the type of world that we’re currently in today. Even starting back then, I said I have to do something.
I initially filed a complaint against Bonnie Henry with the College of Physicians and Surgeons in November of 2020, questioning whether or not she had the evidence that was needed, that there weren’t more harms being done than good. What’s interesting, shortly after that, I did receive a call from a member of her office, her name was Allison. She wouldn’t give me her last name, but she asked me what my concerns were, and I think it was a follow-up of a fairly pointed email that I had written to Dr. Henry. I said, “You know, there’s no evidence to support what’s going on. There aren’t dead people in body bags piling up everywhere.” All this lady by the name of Allison could tell me was, “Well, there’s a global pandemic, you know.” I said, “Where’s the evidence to support what’s going on?” She wouldn’t tell me. That was on Christmas Eve of 2020, and as a public servant of 35 years, I would have never called somebody on Christmas Eve to talk about issues like that.
By the time June of 2021 rolled around, I filed the second complaint against Bonnie Henry for violation of privacy. People in British Columbia had received an envelope from Dr. Henry that had a window on it with their name and then in bold blue letters across the top of it, it said, “A COVID-19 vaccine has been reserved for you” and to me, that’s the same as saying your next colonoscopy has been scheduled. I filed a complaint on the basis of violation of privacy, again, expressing my concerns that there is no evidence. It was an experimental gene therapy that was being rolled out that has some evidence of it causing harm, up to and including,
death, and the communications that were sent along with that envelope were not factual. They did not meet the duty of confidentially and, in fact, they were totally inappropriate and more coercive than anything.
I also, at the same time, filed a complaint with the privacy office and I got a reply from them. They investigated it and I eventually got a letter saying that the provincial government didn’t have the authority to do what it did under both the Public Health Act as well as the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
Eventually the College of Physicians and Surgeons bounced out both of my complaints on the same grounds that they didn’t have jurisdiction to hear the complaint, and my only options were to go to a second level of appeal, which is the Health Professions Review Board and/or go to the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Not being a lawyer, I don’t know how to do complaints to the Supreme Court of British Columbia, so I pursued the Health Professions Review Board. I submitted every case that I could find that was previously decided by the Health Professions Review Board and included about 90 pages of information, and it was bounced out.
By the time September rolled around, John Horgan was on the news, and he was likening the unvaccinated wanting to enter into pubs and restaurants to be equivalent to unruly patrons and that if a business owner found that the unvaccinated were wanting to get in, they should call law enforcement.
To me, that totally violated the principles and the purpose behind the BC Human Rights Code, and it’s predicated on three principles that I would like to share right now. The first one is to foster a society in which there are no impediments to full and free participation in the economic, social, political, and cultural life in the province. The second purpose of that Code is to promote a climate of understanding and mutual respect where all are equal in dignity and rights. The third is to prevent discrimination. That complaint went nowhere. I did receive one reply from the Human Rights Office saying would I like to have a conversation about it? And I said absolutely, I can’t wait for a hearing date. I have heard nothing back since. In December, I’d also filed concerns with the BC ombuds person’s office and that was also totally brushed off.
One of the more significant initiatives that I undertook started in October and November of 2021. A lady in the Maritimes had filed a criminal complaint with one of the local police forces down there. I got the information from her and made a template up using her information, as well as gathered all the information that I could. Along with three other people, we eventually did submit a criminal complaint to the Penticton detachment of the RCMP.
Before we got to actually submitting that complaint, I was able to get the signatures of just over 200 people that were also interested in the following areas that we believe should have been investigated by the police. They include assault, extortion, intimidation, breach of trust by a public official, criminal negligence, and administering a noxious thing. I included other information with that, probably one of the most significant pieces of information that I can recall—that I know that this Commission has already heard about—is the Pfizer post-marketing reports. In that report, there were 1,227 people that had died out of a total sample size of 42,086 people. And within three days, that complaint was bounced out of the Penticton RCMP detachment, saying that what we had submitted didn’t mean a thing.
What is also interesting is, I know a gentleman in Victoria that went through the exact same process of gathering other people. He used the same information that I did. He went down to the Victoria detachment of the RCMP, and they told him there that they don’t take criminal complaints.
In addition to that, he then decided he would go over to the Victoria Police Department, and he was able to sit down with one of their officers for about an hour and a half with three other gentlemen. In about 10 days, that was bounced out, for the same reason as the Penticton detachment individual had bounced out our complaint there.
Around the winter of 2021, I heard from Brian Peckford that said we have to learn how to start to hold our politicians accountable. So we started an MP accountability project. What I’ve done with that is, I’ve been able to collect the contact information of roughly 300 people that I know regularly write our Member of Parliament asking him to do things like safeguard our democracy and human rights; to serve the public’s interest above all else; to ensure that he does things like act with integrity and avoid conflicts of interest—advising him of his duty to inform and educate citizens on the activities of Parliament and how citizens can actually engage in legislative processes. So far, I’ve been totally ignored over writing him probably 25 to 50 times, except for once, last month, where I received a one- line reply saying that our Member of Parliament was going to be in Parliament speaking about the issue that I’ve raised a concern about. He ended up not addressing it at all.
Another thing that I did was, by the time May of 2022 rolled around, I said, “Okay, filing complaints against Dr. Bonnie Henry is not working, what else can I do?” So I filed a complaint, along with four other people, against one of the individuals that work at the College of Physicians and Surgeons on the basis of them not doing their job. The title of the complaint is really that it’s a failure to superintend the profession, which is one of the requirements of individuals under the Health Professions Act, as it existed at that time. The duties of all colleges are to protect the public and act in the public’s interest. Even things like you heard from Dr. Charles Hoffe yesterday, how he tried to report vaccine injuries—which could be as a result of some sort of hazardous agent—and there is a section in the Public Health Act that requires doctors, or they call them prescribed persons, to report if they find that there is an adverse agent that’s going around.
Another part of the complaint relates to the lack of the College enforcing things like the BC Health Care (Consent) and Care Facilities (Admissions) Act. Section 2 of that Act, the title of it is called Consent; Part 2 is Consent. I read the Nuremberg Code and then looked at Part 2 of the BC Health Care (Consent) and Care Facilities (Admissions) Act, and it basically codifies the principles associated with informed consent and so on. There are seven parts to that complaint. I don’t want to go into them in too much detail because it’s still under consideration by the College, and we haven’t received the decision back.
But the seven parts are first is a failure to superintend the profession; a failure to enforce standards of practice and reduce unethical practice; a failure to enforce professional ethics; a failure to employ inquiry procedures that are transparent, objective, impartial and fair; a failure to observe practice standards guidelines, legislative guidance, such as the BC Health Care (Consent) and Care Facilities (Admissions) Act, as well as the codes of ethics and violation of public trust, as well as professional incompetence.
Have any of these complaints been successful and, secondly, are any still outstanding?
This one that I’m talking about right now is still outstanding and none of the others have been successful. Even when I filed a complaint for the violation of my privacy and I got that letter from the privacy office saying that the provincial government didn’t have the authority to do what it did under those two pieces of legislation, I thought for sure there would have been some kind of sanction put against Dr. Henry, but there wasn’t.
Okay, and I presume that, while these lockdowns and whatnot were going on, you were unable to do your music.
And also, you were unable get your other part-time income that you had with the winery companies.
That’s right. I refused to wear a mask. I did wear a shield for about two days, at one time, but, other than that, I said, “No, I’m not playing this game.” I was going to be going to a new winery. I was really excited about it and that all evaporated.
Is all of that employment back to normal now?
It could be. I might be able to get a job again, but I haven’t been pursuing that. I’ve been trying to fight these battles instead.
Okay, I’m going to ask the commissioners at this point if they have any questions for the witness? Going once. Going twice. Okay.
I think, in the interest of keeping our facility here from turning into a pumpkin, I’m going to let you go. Thank you very much for coming to the National Citizens Inquiry and giving us your evidence. Thank you. Good luck with the music.

Mr. Wayne Llewellyn is a retired citizen of B.C. and he was working part-time to supplement his income when the pandemic started. Several of his family members suffered illnesses from the vaccines, and he was prevented from continuing with his employment because of the mandates. He filed two complaints against Dr. Bonnie Henry through the College of Physicians and Surgeons, of which both were subsequently denied.
Mr. Llewellyn has filed many other complaints to many organizations including the RCMP, all of which have been denied. He did file an additional complaint against the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons, which is still outstanding.
