Yesterday I asked the question, "Singapore Charges Unvaxxed for COVID Medical Care. Will Canada be Next?" Today, as if on cue, Quebec Premier Francois Legault announced financial penalties for mere citizens who don't want to take the experimental medical procedure known as the COVID vaccine. Legault refused to say what the financial penalty would be, saying only it would be … [Read more...]
Compelled Speech is Now the Law of the Land
Alberta Justice Adam Germain tore up the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, then spit the tattered remains in the face of Calgary Pastor Artur Pawlowski. Why? Because Pastor Pawlowski dares hold an opinion unapproved by our political masters. Justice Germain believed it was his duty to crush this dangerous man, this man of ideas and principles, because our so-called 'just … [Read more...]
BC Supreme Court Sides with Bonnie Henry, BC’s High Priestess of COVID
So much for Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. If you ever believed the Charter was worth the paper it's printed on (I don't) then the decision in Beaudoin et al v. British Columbia and Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry should disabuse of that silly notion. On March 18, 2021, BC Supreme Court Justice Christopher Hinkson sided with Dr. Bonnie Henry - BC's … [Read more...]
BC Premier Horgan Obeys One Section of Charter While Happily Violating Another
On Thursday, January 21, 2021, BC Premier John Horgan told reporters he would not impose a travel ban based on a “review of our legal options.” The Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees our right to mobility in Section 6: Mobility Rights. 6 (1) Every citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in and leave Canada. (2) Every citizen of Canada and every person who … [Read more...]
All Hail the High Priestess of COVID – Dr. Bonnie Henry
If COVID is the new god then Bonnie Henry is its High Priestess. On Tuesday, December 8th, the High Priestess of COVID published the latest version of her bastardized commandments. If the restrictions that follow make no sense to you, don’t worry your pretty little head over them. This doesn’t have to make sense. It’s government policy. All Hail the High Priestess of … [Read more...]
Is Canada’s Democracy Doomed?
Democracy is doomed globally but that’s an issue for another day. Today I’m only concerned with waking my fellow mere citizens in the Great White North from their slumber. “I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.” Those nine words doom Canadians because whenever government decides to "help us" the loss of individual freedom and prosperity is never far … [Read more...]
Justin Trudeau: I Will Always Defend Approved Speech
Section 2 (b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms is clear. Canadians have the right to freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression. The lesser son of the man who brought Canada the Charter of Rights and Freedoms is, sadly but predictably, utterly incapable of defending this bedrock principle of the Canadian Constitution. Trudeau's pathetic mewling started after … [Read more...]
Why do Criminals Go Free When Police Screw Up?
In response to my Friday column Cops Screw Up: Drug Dealer Jermaine Barrows-Taylor Escapes Illegal Handgun Conviction, one reader shared his frustration with this case specifically, as well as these types of cases in general. I do not understand why police screwups result in criminals going free. If police illegally search a vehicle and find a body, does the driver get a … [Read more...]
Enhancing Public Safety by Granting Early Release to Criminals?
Ontario released over 2,300 convicted criminals from jail early due to fears over a COVID-19 outbreak in the prison system. Those fears are valid, as the Mission Correctional Institution in British Columbia proves. That correctional facility, as of April 23, 2020, has 65 inmates and a dozen staff members testing positive for COVID-19. It’s the highest concentration of … [Read more...]
MP Cheryl Gallant Tables Bill C-222 to Limit Expropriations of Private Property
In Canada, property rights are provincial jurisdiction, except when they’re not. There is some federal overlap and overreach, and it’s the overreach Cheryl Gallant addresses in her Private Member’s Bill C-222, introduced to Parliament on February 17, 2020. To understand how intertwined these issues are, it’s necessary to briefly delve into the history of property rights and … [Read more...]
The Canadian Government’s Scheme to Censor the Internet
Freedom of Speech is a fundamental right of all human beings. If this Liberal government wants me to give up right to free speech and beg for their permission to speak they'd best come with a bevy of armed Thought Police thugs because the only way they will shut me up is if they kill me. George Orwell's classic 1984 is not an instruction manual. It's a dire warning about … [Read more...]
An Open Letter to Jati Sidhu, MP (Mission — Matsqui — Fraser Canyon)
Dear Mr. Jati Sidhu, MP (Mission — Matsqui — Fraser Canyon) I write to you, my elected representative to Parliament, to urge you to vote against Iqra Khalid's Motion M-103 "Systemic racism and religious discrimination" this week. My rationale is simple. Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees my right to freedom of speech. That right includes the right to … [Read more...]
Our Right to Privacy vs Police Need to Investigate Crime – Who Wins?
Police want easy access to personal information, generally with the assurance that they will not misuse the data they collect. The trouble is they almost always misuse the data, or if that statement seems too unfair, they often use it in ways never intended and they said they would never do. Take the testimony of Scott Naylor of the Ontario Provincial Police before the … [Read more...]
The Canadian Charter of Approved Beliefs? I thought it was the Charter of Rights and Freedoms!
I could have sworn we mere citizens, through the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, enjoyed a quaint little notion called Freedom of Religion and that we could not be discriminated against because of our choice of religion. It appears I was mistaken. Either that or the moronic bigots at Nanaimo City Hall violated the Charter Rights of Canadians they identified as … [Read more...]
[Video] High River RCMP Dog and Pony Show
RCMP in High River, Alberta, broke into the homes of evacuated residents and seized every firearm that wasn't bolted down or locked in a safe, claiming "public safety". These criminals with badges and guns must lose their jobs and face criminal charges for violating the Charter Rights of High River residents. Write your MP, Prime Minister Harper, Premier Alison Redford … [Read more...]
RCMP Commissioner Robert Paulson Finally Speaks to High River RCMP Gun Thefts
It took over a week but RCMP Commissioner Robert Paulson finally came out of hiding to face Canadians about the criminal actions of his force in High River, Alberta. Well, he didn’t actually come out of hiding to face Canadians. He merely published a letter to the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP on the RCMP’s website. He still hasn’t reached down into … [Read more...]
Lillooet, BC, Takes SLAPPing “Mere Citizens” to an All-New Level
Just down the road from me is the town of Lillooet. It’s a nice enough place to live except, that is, for the local politicians. They’re a nightmare; control freaks of the highest order. Back in 2010 Lillooet Mayor Dennis Bontron wanted to ban what he called “unauthorized meetings” in an effort to curb vandalism. The penalties proposed for holding an "unauthorized meeting" … [Read more...]
Is Every Phone Call You Make Recorded Without Your Knowledge or Consent?
Constitutions, Charters of Rights and Freedoms, and Bills of Rights mean something under one and only one condition: when those in power choose to follow them. There is not a government in the world that actually respects the documents created by those who founded those nations. Here in Canada, the ink wasn't dry on the Trudeaupian Nightmare, our Charter of Rights and … [Read more...]
Mass Hysteria: Government’s Age-Old Boogeyman by Jane Gaffin
Has the world suddenly gone bonkers? Well, no. The world seemingly has been afflicted with mass insanity since time immemorial. Hi-tech toys merely allow the madness to be refined. Eavesdropping on every telephone conversation, snooping into every e-mail message, cameras and recorders spying on and listening to citizens on every street corner, super-snoop … [Read more...]
Police overwhelmingly support C-30’s warrantless searches and violation of privacy
It really isn’t a shock to see police chiefs from across Canada coming out in support of the warrantless search and privacy violations contained in Bill C-30, disingenuously named “Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act”. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) even go so far as calling it a “reasonable tool” in the battle against crime. Obviously they … [Read more...]
Individual Rights: What’s the big deal?
I am in the middle of an email conversation with a colleague who professes to believe in the Individual Rights and Freedoms of all Canadians. I say “professes”, because this individual seems unable to grasp the concept of Individual Rights at all. This individual asked a small group of us whether or not we each individually believed in the Supremacy of God. Now before any … [Read more...]
Terrorism Law: A War on Internet
All levels of government are trying to feed balderdash to ordinary Canadians as a way of brainwashing them into feeling guilty unless they willingly accept reverse onus (guilty as charged and no way to prove innocence) without uttering a whimper or protest to unwarranted Internet surveillance. (Translation: stupid, low-life minions aren’t trustworthy or deserving, let alone … [Read more...]
Was Ireneusz Janiszewski Exercising His Charter Rights or Obstructing Justice?
I've been meaning to write about this for a few days, but other things just get in the way sometimes. That's unfortunate, because this is an important case that deserves attention. On May 30th, 2011 Ireneusz Janiszewski photographed police arresting a man who was allegedly drunk in public and causing a disturbance. It is a fact that you are allowed to photograph and/or … [Read more...]
Rookie Woodstock Constables violate Charter, get case tossed
"This could only happen in Canada, the judge rules and that's it," said Charlie Dalgarno, past-president of the Woodstock Royal Canadian Legion. Legion members were very upset with the ruling by Judge Marietta Roberts that set alleged swastika graffiti painter Christopher Saggau free. Saggau was accused of painting swastikas on the Victoria Park Cenotaph the night before … [Read more...]
If we’re willing to stifle free speech at the Langley School Board, how are we supposed to teach our children what it means?
Langley, British Columbia is the latest battleground for freedom of speech, but that battle isn't happening inside a courtroom. It's happening in the Langley School Board Office. Schools are supposed to be the place where we teach our children what it means to be a citizen. It's where we are supposed to teach them what our Rights and Freedoms are. It's where, each … [Read more...]
Corporations use lawsuits to Muzzle our Freedom of Speech
Canadians supposedly enjoy, under our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Right to Freedom of Speech. That Right has been reduced to a mere privilege over the past 40 years through the use of Human Rights Tribunals and Hate Crime legislation. What used to be our God-given Right is now reduced to mere "Approved Speech". The trouble for Canadians is this: Who must we get … [Read more...]
