What happened in 2022? The Canadian excess mortality conundrum, what caused it and will it continue?

Online

Replay "What happened in 2022? The Canadian excess mortality conundrum, what caused it and will it continue?" where we explored 2022 Canadian excess death levels which almost doubled compared to 2021 levels, surpassing US excess deaths for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. What is causing these excess deaths? Are they all still due to COVID? Are there other significant drivers contributing to recent excess mortality? More importantly to those trying to understand future longevity: Will the pattern continue? And Is 2022 mortality data representative of the future?
