Dr. Hodkinson said that social distancing is useless and he condemned mandatory mask mandates. He slammed the unreliability of PCR tests, noting that positive test results do not mean a clinical infection and that all testing should stop because the false numbers are "driving public hysteria."
Dr. Hodkinson said that the risk of death in the province of Alberta for people under the age of 65 was one in three hundred thousand, and that it was "outrageous" to shut down society for what the doctor said "was just another bad flu." He called for society to be re-opened immediately to prevent the debilitating damage being caused by lockdowns.
Hodkinson's comments were made during a discussion involving the Community and Public Services Committee and the clip was subsequently uploaded to YouTube.
Noting that he was also an expert in virology, Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures COVID tests means, "I might know a little bit about all this."
