Analysis / Bias
Awake Canada presents news and opinions on Covid-19 and Vaccines from a conspiratorial perspective, as evidenced by its coverage of Covid 19. For example, this video featuring anti-vaccination doctors, “Doctors All Over The World URGENT Warnings Of Taking The Covid 19 Vaccine. Watch This Video!” and “What ‘Covid-19’ Really Is” Dr ‘Judy Mikovits’ PhD. Explains What ‘Sars Cov2’ ‘MRNA’ Vaccines Are.” Judy Mikovits has been known to make claims that have been proven to be false such as this “Fact check: Unfounded claim that 50 million Americans would die from COVID-19 vaccine.”
The website exhibits a consistent conservative bias that contains factually incorrect information or misleading claims, such as “Overview of Massive Voter Fraud to Steal the Election,” which suggests that the 2020 US Presidential Election was stolen through voter fraud. There has been no evidence of large-scale systemic election fraud that would change the election results. Additionally, the website does not always provide clear attribution for its sources or relies on Questionable sources like Children’s Health Defense, which has failed numerous fact-checks related to vaccines and health.
Finally, the website promotes conspiracy theories and pseudoscience, such as weather modification, homeopathic remedies for Covid-19, and alternative theories on the cause of climate change that are opposed to climate scientists’ consensus. In general, Awake Canada is a right-wing conspiracy and pseudoscience website that promotes conservative propaganda.

- No, ‘top doctor’ wrong – US reporting system Vaers doesn’t say thousands of deaths ‘directly due to’ Covid vaccines. – False
- “Canadian Court Ends Covid Emergency | Mask Mandates, Lockdowns, & Emergency Use Jab are now Unlawful. – Misleading
