B.C. COVID-denier had illness but died of drug overdose, coroner says – CTV

Feb. 8, 2023

VICTORIA – A report from British Columbia’s coroner says a prominent anti-vaccine and COVID critic died in 2021 of a drug overdose, although he also tested positive for the illness post-mortem.
The report says Mak Parhar was found by a family member unresponsive in the bathroom of his New Westminster home on Nov. 4, 2021.

Coroner Damian Balam’s report into the death says Parhar was found lying on the floor with drug paraphernalia including a syringe, a glass pipe and a burnt spoon nearby.

Balam’s report says Parhar had ethanol, cocaine and fentanyl in his system at the time of death, ruling it accidental due to “mixed illicit drug toxicity.”

The report also says Parhar had COVID-19 at the time of his death, though the coroner found it played no role.
