Suspended RCMP officer calls out ‘fearmongering’ in open letter

A goodbye letter shared on the Mounties for Freedom website will likely “ruffle some feathers” said author Cpl. Richard Mehner, a 21-year RCMP veteran, now on leave without pay.

“Unfortunately, our government has told me I have to tell them what’s in my body, and if the right drug is not inside me, I have to get it as a condition of my continuing employment, human rights be damned,” said Mehner in the letter.

Mehner discussed how as an RCMP officer he learned to evaluate everything put before him and not “simply accept its veracity based on the authority behind it.”

As an example, Mehner pointed to the last federal government census and said he was surprised to see three boxes in the gender section — male, female and other.

“For real, the federal government of Canada allowed you to make up your own gender on the last official census,” wrote Mehner.

“I found this to be a combination of amusing and insane. Feeling particularly bullheaded and cheeky at the time, I naturally chose Minotaur as my gender.

“Yes, that’s right, on the Canadian government census my gender is that of a mythical giant man with the head of a bull.”

Mehner said he was “skeptical of the pandemic from the start” but said he was open to seeing what evidence would surface.

On his watch, Mehner said he was privy to all sudden death files coming through his detachment in Burnaby, BC since the pandemic began and saw “no upward trend whatsoever.”

Mehner said he saw a “very stark contrast” in what he was seeing day-to-day versus what was being conveyed on TV.

Then, in the summer of 2020, Mehner said he contracted COVID-19.

“For a few days, I was really tired and shivered a lot,” Mehner wrote.

“Then it was over. I survived the ‘deadly’ disease like the vast majority of anyone else who caught it.”

In his open letter, Mehner quoted world population statistics — without source — showing the global overall death rate was unchanged at 0.76% from 2018 to 2020 and took aim at the media for their “narrow focus of case counts and COVID deaths.”

Throughout his letter, Mehner quotes the word “vaccine” a number of times and draws attention to this.

“Oh look, ‘vaccine’ is in quotations again. Why am I doing that?” Mehner wrote, followed by the bold, larger-cased answer, “Because it’s not a f^#king vaccine!!!”

Mehner explained his understanding of how vaccines work and dismissed the COVID-19 injections saying he believed they did not compare.

“The fact that ‘vaccinated’ people still get Covid and spread it should tell you this madness will never end as long as you buy into the official narrative,” said Mehner.

Mehner goes on to explain his understanding of how the COVID-19 injections work pointing out his concern the manufactures “themselves have admitted they don’t know the long-term side effects,” and have been shielded from civil liability should their vaccines cause harm.

“Make no mistake here. This is a large-scale drug trial and whoever was jabbed is taking part.”

Another concern Mehner stated is his belief natural immunity is being “ignored” and proceeded to highlight a number of studies, including one out of Israel.

“The largest study was in Israel where the researchers concluded that natural immunity conveyed 27 times more protection than vaccination.”

Since he has refused to comply with the vaccine mandate — calling it “nonsensical, illegal and unethical” — Mehner has been put on leave without pay and indicated he has obtained legal representation.  

“Despite the fact approximately 70% of the Federal workforce gets testing as an option, for some inexplicable reason, the RCMP, the CBSA (Canadian Border Services Agency) and Federal Corrections have a mandatory vaccination order,” wrote Mehner.

Mehner finished his open letter telling Canadians not to be afraid.

“Turn off your television and radios. Do your own research and question everything. Knowledge begins with asking questions.

“With each new variant, they will try and frighten you, despite the fact that never in the history of virology has a virus ever mutated to become more deadly.”

Mehner also took the opportunity to include information and links on two groups — Mounties 4 Freedom and Action 4 Canada — calling them groups of freedom-loving Canadians.

Mehner signed off with a P.S. to his Chief Superintendent Graham de la Gorgendiere: “I taped a copy of this letter on your office door, Martin Luther style. If you don’t understand the historical reference, I invite you to look it up.”
