According to social media reports (below), Mark "Grizzly Patriot" Friesen is intubated with COVID at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Mark was a candidate for the People's Party of Canada who lost with only 5.8% of the vote (no PPC candidate has won any riding in Canada). The PPC is a fringe political party in Canada started by Maxime Bernier, formally of the conservative party (think Tea Party in America). Their platform is far-right populism (even though they deny it). Mark has been one of the most outspoken critics of anything related to solving the pandemic including masks, lockdowns, vaccines, mandates, and vaccine passports. Mark led a failed lawsuit recently against the Saskatchewan government to stop the mandatory vaccination policy.
There are a lot of public anti-vaxxer statements from Mark to choose from, as it's obvious that he wants to be the anti-vaccine champion of Canada. You can find statements yourself by just googling his name. However, I'll try to present enough for you to get the picture and save you some time.
By the way, these are all within the past month:
He posts a video with false statements. Like, it is obvious that this guy is making stuff up. "by very very reliable sources":

And what's the appropriate response to this drivel?
Answer: But you do need a hospital bed. Fuck your freedom.
This is the person supposedly injured from the vax...
Oh... let's hear it in his own voice....
He posts false information:
This post has the nerve to ask: "How much ICU space is taken up by vaccine injuries?"
The following is extremely contrived. Sean Taylor is PPC member and candidate for something, Him leaving nursing because of this appears to be lie. He left for a political career.
Ah the Grand COVID conspiracy... completely insane.
Killing people with their mRNA. Does he even know what mRNA is and what it does?
I guess they watch Tucker Carlson in Saskatoon too, eh?
Wonder when we'll be seeing Kid Rock on sorryantivaxxer?
Here he goes! Suing Saskatchewan for vax policy...
He lost of course.
By the way, here is a twitter thread where a woman told a story of her brother-in-law becoming an anti-vaxxer and Mark weighs in ripping her with a 79 minute rant. I highly recommended reading her reaction to that, and even watching Marks angry video:
So what's going on with Mark these days?
This broke on Oct 6 (and is referenced in the twitter thread above):
And then we get more confirmation from the family today (10/12/21) because, you know, he needs prayers:
Word is he's intubated and in critical condition.
Get better Grizzly Patriot! Become the Vaxx Ox! (if you come up with a better alter-ego name for Mark please post it below).
