Wednesday 9th February 2022

Once again, this morning I watched the “ugly three” ministers on the Freedom Convoy 2022.  I do not man that they are facially ugly but their attitudes most definitely are.

Their common theme today was that all these demonstrations are breaking the law.   Ok, just which law has been enacted by the federal “government” to allow coercive mandates to be imposed in complete contradiction to our Charter of Rights and Freedoms?

BILL BLAIR, the Butcher of Toronto.  The man who controlled the most aggressively brutal police forces during the G20 meeting in Toronto. No one will ever forget that female enforcement officer’s feral look on her face as she battered a peaceful protester. Nor will we forget the sight of a small circle of Canadians sitting peacefully singing Oh Canada right before the tear gas was fired and the circle attacked viciously and dragged away to detention. How many protesters were assaulted by your glorious police sworn to serve and protect the people?  Thanks Bill.   Your attitude towards lawful actions speaks clearly in your past actions, and the look on your face today was clear that you haven’t forgotten and ……

MARCO MENDICINO:

Your ability to avoid answering the questions while repeating ad nauseum that the “unlawful” protests were under control is amazing.  Clearly the control belongs to the truckers, not the massed police forces.  You can increase the police and it will not alter that determination of the truckers to get back the FREEDOM taken away by illegal and coercive mandates. Perhaps it is time for you to acknowledge that the people of Canada mostly realise that FREEDOM is important and are beginning to understand that they have lost theirs.

“No one is above the law”   Really?  

The criminal code is not the law?

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms part of the Constitution Act 1982 is not the law?  

When the government of Canada recognizes that they too must abide by the law of the land instead of the law according to Trudeau they will have the right to claim that we are a democracy (that’s a joke now) with a rule of law.  Until then be careful what you say.

OMAR ALGHABRA:

Your mandates in the federally controlled sections in the transportation industry are the cause of this truckers FREEDOM Convoy.  My employer in the marine sector was obliged by you to attempt to coerce me into taking an untested, unapproved jab I did not and still do not want. They however recognized that I have the right to not accept this coercion but I must be tested before I perform shifts.  Being in BC I have to pay for all tests  (including the rapid tests being given away in other jurisdictions like boxes of candy on Halloween). 

The answer to this whole glorious absolutely Canadian mess is so simple but the three of you are so terrified of losing your cushy jobs by offending his pharmaceutical majesty Trudeau, that you will not acknowledge it.

Remove the illegal coercive mandates and within hours the problem will be solved.

By listening to the millions of supporters all over Canada for these truckers asking for FREEDOM from mandates that tell them ‘get jabbed or lose their job’, you will end the Canadian portion of this now worldwide protest.  Somehow, I believe you will find support from your Liberal comrades in your caucus.   By the way if you doubt what I say forget about massive foreign donations and realise that Canadians have raised more money in less time for these Truckers than the Liberal party could hope for this year.

What we all want is for the truck drivers to get back to work, for illegal coercive mandate to be done and gone, for Trudeau’s antifa to go back into hiding again, and for Canada to open up again and acknowledge that flu season is still upon us and we have survived them before and will again.

For Canada’s sake wake up and act for us all for a change.

Wet’suwet’en

February 2020

We now have our own version of Standing Rock here in Canada, involving real people who live as they have for millennia on unceded territory in British Columbia.

Under the Indian Act, it was decreed that there would be elections on reservations etc., to run those reserves and those who won the brass goose would be called elected chiefs.  Problem is that like almost every politician in North America, they are subject to the bribes or threats of the corporate powers whose only interest is money.  These elected chiefs in Wet’suwet’en,  for whichever of the above reasons, fell in line with the power structure (read corporate right and profit versus peoples’ rights) and here is where the whole problem arises. 

The elected chiefs are there to run their reserves as businesses and in accordance to the scraps given them by federal and provincial money, and even smaller scraps by corporate powers plundering their lands.

The Hereditary Chiefs are there to ensure that the way of life, the land, the waters and the air are not irreparably damaged for those yet to come. They too are the keepers of history and tradition and that includes sacred lands where their ancestors are buried.

The Hereditary Chiefs are not bound by threats of less money or the promise of more money as that is not their way.  Their way is the way of the land as it has been for thousands of years.  Because of their stewardship of the land, air and water it is all still there for their people and they are trying to make sure that it will be next year, next decade and next century.  Don’t try and tell them they can’t get by without money, for money is only a new imposition upon them since the foreigners attacked and stole some of this land a few centuries ago and introduced them to European ways of treachery.

Under the leadership of the Hereditary Chiefs, there are still animals to trap, water to drink and clean air to breathe and life experiences to be taught to the young people; that is all under attack by corporate greed with elected people from Canada and BC in full agreement.  

 Only when the last tree has died
and the last river has been poisoned
and the last fish has been caught
will we realize that we can’t eat money  (Native American Proverb)

So what is happening in the unceded territory of the Wet’suwet’en is an affront to all those who agree with and have signed on to the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.  Can you imagine the outcry if the Algonquin territory upon which our capital is built, was to be taken back and turned into a massive amusement park? Oh, actually I suppose it has already if you have a twisted sense of humour, for it is becoming more and more difficult to differentiate between politicians and willful children pretending to have fun.

 If this is what it means when the PM reiterates over and over again that the most important relationship the government has is with our First Nations, Inuit and Metis, then we are in a period of time travelling with Alice through her looking glass.

 What have we become Canada?
