Detective Helen Grus Sent Email to Ottawa Police Service Questioning Vaccine Adverse Effects and Deaths

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Read the email that Ottawa Police Detective Helen Grus sent to the Chief of Police and fellow officers in September 2021.

Ottawa Police Detective Helen Grus faces internal ‘Discreditable Conduct’ charges for initiating an investigation into possible connections between nine sudden infant deaths and the COVID vaccine status of the mothers.

Grus, an experienced detective with the Sexual Assault & Child Abuse Section, was initially suspended without pay in January 2022 for refusing to declare her private medical information. The Ottawa Police Service mandated that all employees were to be injected with the experimental mRNA gene therapies commonly known as the ‘COVID vaccine’.

The detective then became the subject of an internal investigation alleging that she “self initiated an unauthorized project” and accessed police records about nine sudden infant deaths. The Ottawa Police formally charged Grus in July, 2022. Her next appearance before the internal court is on September 15, 2022.

After I covered the case on my Twitter feed, numerous sources supplied me with copies of an email purportedly sent by Detective Grus to then-Chief of Police Peter Sloly and many other police colleagues in September, 2021.

I will have much more to say about this case in the coming days, but for now I have satisfied myself that the following email was written and sent by Detective Helen Grus. It is an accurate copy of the words, but I have broken a few of the longer paragraphs into shorter sections for readability, and added ‘(Ottawa City Manager)’ to clarify the role of Steven Kanellakos who is mentioned in the email.

September, 2021

To my dear police family,

Over 18 years ago, I joined OPS and have never regretted the blessed opportunity I was afforded. There is no greater happiness in life than to help those truly in need. I am doubly blessed as I have been granted the good fortune of serving our communities proudly with you.

Being raised by God fearing parents who fled socialistic regimes where citizen’s rights to education, jobs, housing and freedom of travel were restricted based on their religious beliefs and political affiliations.

I was taught life was to be lived with dignity, honour, always seeking the truth and always staying true to and loving your family, your country and God!

Family extends to friends, colleagues, neighbours and the community as a whole. I can say without a doubt, my family has given me strength, happiness and support throughout the years. Never does a day go by that I do not thank God for my family and this life I love!

Canada’s Constitution and our Charter of Rights and Freedoms have made Canada an amazing place to call home. As a police officer, I am honoured to have solemnly sworn to uphold this Constitution, which protects all our citizens’ rights and freedoms. I am a proud Canadian who loves my county.

My faith in God is strong. Everything just fell into place throughout my entire life; family, friends, good health, amazing career, the list is endless. Some call it chance, I consider my life to be blessed by someone much greater than you or I.

This past year and a half has been challenging for everyone. Watching news releases each day I fell back on my investigative skills directing me to seek out the source information in attempts to corroborate the doom and gloom of each day’s news reports on Covid-19 deaths, cases, prevention, transmission etc. I have researched countless peer-reviewed medical studies, government sites providing statistics, documents and data. I further have had extensive discussions with physicians, psychologists, community members who have suffered in result of not only the virus itself but also the crippling effects of the lockdowns; lost employment, mental health, discourse amongst friends, families and communities.

To be clear, I do not deny that people have contracted SARS-CoV-2; with varying outcomes including succumbing to the virus.

I do have serious concerns with the worldwide silencing of doctors, virologists, biologists,

pharmacists, psychologists etc.

Prior to submitting any further disclosure about my informed medical decisions in relation to

SARS-CoV-2 vaccination status, I wish to have OPS or designate answer the following:

  1. What is the probability of fatality from SARS-CoV-2 in Ottawa, Ontario and Canada?
  2. What is the probability of recovery from SARS-CoV-2 in Ottawa, Ontario and Canada?
  3. How do annual death rates compare from 2000 to date in Ottawa, Ontario and Canada?
  4. What is the guidance for certifying deaths from SARS-CoV-2 in Canada and why did the WHO alter the criteria at the onset of the proclaimed pandemic in relation to the guidance for certifying deaths from SARS-CoV-2?
  5. Has OPS reviewed the available databases of material adverse effects reported to date for people who have received the EUA vaccines against SARS-CoV-2?
  6. Is OPS aware of the adverse effects their own membership has experienced upon receipt of the EUA vaccines against SARS-CoV-2?
  7. Can you provide evidence that fully vaccinated persons do not contribute to the transmission of SARS-CoV-2?
  8. Can you provide evidence that increased vaccinations do not contribute to the evolution of the new variants?
  9. Can you provide evidence that the mandated EUA vaccines will be equally effective against newer variants?
  10. Can you provide evidence that conventional pharmaceutical treatments which are fully safety-tested, licenced and approved, like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine, are ineffective?
  11. Are you aware that all vaccine producers; Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson have been granted indemnity and bear no liability for the consequences of their vaccines which are only in clinical trial phase and being distributed under Emergency Orders?
  12. Will OPS take full legal and financial liability for any injuries, adverse effects and/or death occurring to members following the receipt of any EUA vaccine potentially mandated?

Please understand, I love policing and I love coming to work each and every day. I do not wish to be insubordinate. I do not wish to be accommodated. I feel I can continue my regular duties in SACA safely and effectively without having to disclose my personal medical decision. I maintain my health with nutritious eating, exercise and attempt to acquire proper rest. I monitor my health with medical check-ups and as requested; complete the requested daily screening.

I do not envy the position of our decision makers and policy makers as the public outcry is extensive.

It is my informed opinion that much of the fear-based decision are based on the hear-say of the media’s non-stop narrative.

Having spoken to numerous colleagues at OPS, I do request OPS management, including Health & Safety check on the Mental Health of our members. Many are not only carrying the burden of the past year; responding to the rise in suicides and attempt suicides, seeing the destructive rise of opioid related deaths, overall mental health decline of society.

Most recently, the members that take pride in the rights and freedoms of our great nation are struggling with the strong-arm approach of “Employees who refuse to comply with the requirements of this policy will not be permitted in the workplace and may be subject to a variety of consequences, which can include leave without pay or discipline, up to and including dismissal”, by (Ottawa City Manager) Steven Kanellakos.

This has caused great stress to members, in a time when all members working at OPS have the right to work in an environment that is respectful and free of harassment and discrimination. All members have an individual responsibility to contribute to creating and maintaining a respectful workplace.

I conclude with a request for you to listen to Dr Julie Ponesse’s podcast, professor of Ethics at Western University.

I am proudly committed to protecting the safety, security and quality of life to our communities; side by side with my brothers and sisters in blue.

God Bless and Stay Safe,

Helen Grus #1631

  • If only she loved her country as much as she loves her county.

  • Helen Grus should receive an award for protecting the rights of every Canadian, as the Canadian Charter is supposed to do; for bravery for educating herself and expressing herself; and for heroism. If such as awards do hot exist, one should be created for her.

  • Ottawa Professional Firefighter

    Det. Helen Grus is a modern day hero.
    The City after having the mayor declare mandating jabs was illegal (August 2021) proceeded with a mandatory policy a month later. The province never stipulated one has to be threatened with loss of income of not vaxd. They didn’t even say jabs were mandatory they just said places of work had to have a “policy”
    I know several firefighters who had serious adverse events after jabs. Some will never return to their jobs as they have permanent disabilities from the jabs. All were healthy and vigorously fit people. Now they are faced with a lifetime (shortened) of pain and suffering from an experimental treat enemy “therapeutic” as Dr. Kieran Moore states this summer.
    All for a virus that was a flu for most young healthy people. I had it, and it was miserable for 2 days. Followed by 7 days of fatigue. No lingering effects.
    I too saw the suicides she mentions in her email. It was devastating to witness. Especially in the young people. This was blown way out of proportion by the media and the Gov. I followed the data from Ottawa public health and Ontario and to say the whole thing was a massive over reaction is an understatement.
    Interestingly Ontario stopped posting Hospitalizations – ICU admissions and Deaths by Vax status in June of this year because the data was damning for their cause. The triple jabbed were over 75% of the hospitilaztions for COVID – almost 75% of the ICU cases and the triple jabbed deaths were more than the unjabbed one jabbed and two jabbed combined!!!
    Not a lie. I took the screenshots of their nice pie charts.
    Maybe that’s why Kieran Moore started back peddling and stated “it’s now a risk based approach” and for “healthy young adults the risk outweighs the benefit”
    I am angry for those who were forced off because of this policy but most angry for those forced to take this crap to keep their families solvent with their pay cheques.
    Peace Out!

  • It is the least we can expect from our heavy-handed government. I only wonder why the media has not demanded this information months ago.
