Two Ontario nurses are facing scrutiny after a trip to Washington, D.C. for an event organized by a group called Global Frontline Nurses. 

The College of Nurses of Ontario confirmed on Twitter that the two nurses, Sarah Choujounian and Kristen Nagle, are under investigation.

Nurses Against Lockdowns has shared videos of both women speaking at the event, called the Global Frontline Nurses Summit. 

The summit reportedly took place hours before rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

In the video, Nagle claims that the COVID-19 death rate in Canada does not justify current lockdown measures.

"In Canada, we're seeing a different scenario. So there's about 16,000 deaths all over Canada, a country of 37 million. I think that's what, like, .0004% of the population and we are basically in complete lockdown," she says.

"Stand up to hypocrisy," she continues, "otherwise, the hypocrites will teach."

Choujounian also speaks, identifying herself as being from Toronto and saying she's been a nurse since 2004 and has spent most of her career working in long-term care. 

She claims she was fired for posting about her anti-lockdown beliefs.

The CNO says it cannot publicly disclose the progress or ongoing status of the investigations.

However, any details that are permitted to be shared will be made available on the Find a Nurse public register.
