This development came to light last month as Canadian doctors and a civil liberties lawyers raised concerns about the growing trend. Dementia was the leading cause of death in Alberta from 2016 to 2020.
Listed as the leading causes of death last year in Alberta were unknown causes (3,362), dementia (2,135) and COVID-19 (1,950). Other leading causes of death are chronic ischemic heart disease, malignant neoplasms of the trachea, bronchus and lung, acute myocardial infarction, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes mellitus, stroke and accidental poisoning by and exposure to drugs and other substances.
Dr. Daniel Gregson, an associate professor in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary, said that it's probably multifactorial, so there could be many factors that are in play.
Those factors include a lack of resources to determine the cause of death in certain cases, delayed access to healthcare services and post-COVID complications.
"We have this impression of surviving COVID, and that's the end of it, and that's not necessarily true," he said.
Health officials and so-called experts are refusing to even consider that the thousands of deaths from unknown causes in just one Canadian province may be connected to COVID-19 vaccines. Instead, they're trying to pin the blame squarely on COVID.
Gregson noted that a large study conducted in the U.S. found that people with COVID-19 are at a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, pulmonary embolism and death compared to those who were not infected. He failed to mention that multiple studies have shown that vaccinated people are dying at a higher rate from all causes than the unvaccinated.

Deaths from unknown causes have not appeared as a leading cause of death in Alberta until last year, but the number of deaths listed under that category seems to have been increasing since at least 2019. That year, 522 deaths were recorded under this classification before almost tripling to 1,464 in 2020.
The government said some of those deaths were still under investigation and the numbers will eventually be updated.
Following the publication of the latest data in July 2022, a spokesperson for Service Alberta said that the "other 'ill-defined and unknown cause of death' classification is given when a cause of death cannot be determined, or when a death is still under investigation with a medical examiner. Some deaths originally coded in this way are updated as a final determination of the cause of death are determined."
The spokesperson explained that the number will continue to be refined as final medical causes of death are determined. He also claimed that the number had already been revised down by 35 percent compared to previously published data.
