The National Citizens Inquiry (NCI) is in Red Deer, Alberta beginning today and running through 28, 2023.

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 NCI’s purpose is to listen, to learn, and to recommend by asking questions such as: “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?”

Testimony provided to date in Truro, Toronto, Winnipeg and Saskatoon have been stunning and heart breaking: funeral directors who refused to keep family members separated from their loved ones; health and safety professionals who watched every rule of workplace safety get decimated by employers; and police officers who refused to implement martial law when politicians called for it.

Testimony clips from past hearings are available here.
