People are putting anti-vaccination DVDs, notes on windshields in Kamloops

Kamloops residents have been finding anti-vaccination propaganda on their car windshields this past week. 

The DVDs have reportedly been found on windshields in several different parking lots. They have the words "Critical Information" and "Sounding the Alarm" on them, and they come with a letter inside.

A healthcare worker fears this is spreading misinformation. She was granted anonymity for this story because of the high likelihood she could lose her job as a repercussion for speaking publicly.

“These were handed out at Walmart, Costco, Home Depot and a few other places,” she said. “I had mine put on my windshield at Walmart this past Saturday. Several were handed out. I would say at least 50 cars had them on their windshields. I work in healthcare. I’ve done my research on these vaccines. This misinformation could cause harm in the wrong hands.”

The letter states it is from something called the "World Health Alliance".

"Unsuspected by the masses the truth is being suppressed behind endless layers of corruption to steer every country into a Global Agenda; the United Nations 21 & 2030," the letter said. "If you still think that this is a conspiracy theory, then their news medias got you exactly where they want you." (Sic).

There are instructions on how to use the DVD and a warning that content is unsuitable for children.

She suggests people gather information from healthcare professionals instead of from the internet or a DVD.

"Everyone has a choice in what to do with their bodies," she said. "Everyone has the right to do their own research. In my personal opinion having these DVDs handed out does nothing but cause more confusion, and adds to the misinformation of these vaccines. There are better ways of communicating with the public to convey one's concerns."

She said she didn't play the DVD in case it is carrying its own virus. She didn't mind having the material put on her windshield.

"As long as there is no damage to my vehicle go right ahead and stick a flyer on it," she said. "What I choose to do with it is my personal business. In this instance, the DVD and letter went straight into the trash bin."
