We apparently are not part of Canada
“There are two good things in life – freedom of thought and freedom of action”. W. Somerset Maugham
Here in BC we are used to forest fires every year, floods most years and we are able live through them. A couple of years ago we had an “atmospheric river” hang over the Fraser Valley and into the interior, causing major flooding of towns and farms, and washing out roads and bridges cutting off the Canadian supply lines into and out of the Vancouver docks. People died along with a huge number of livestock near Abbotsford and fruit and veggie crops were wiped out. This was a local emergency requiring just some help from the federal military to help fill sandbags. We handled the rest here in BC.
Compare that and the recent ‘Fiona’ disaster on the east coast with the 3 week occupation of a town in Ontario by truckers who had maintained the supply chain throughout the draconian plandemic measures, and many of them had submitted to the coercion concerning the untested, toxic, emergency use only approved jab anyway. What they were protesting was the destruction of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which in itself should have been a national emergency. Against all odds an irritated PM who was compromised over the jabs anyway, invoked the Emergency Act, which demands a commission to decide if the use was justified.
Well, Paul Rouleau came out with his politically expedient judgment on the Emergency Act invoked by that high and mighty PM.
The clear level of danger to Canadian national security was apparently met in the view he expressed.
Either my mind is broken or I am missing something very important.
All the non-violent border blockades which did have an economic factor, but not a national security factor, were lifted prior to the invoking of the Act, so all that was left were the peaceful, Canada loving Freedom Convoy truckers in Ottawa. They wanted to talk but were denied that right by a PM who was more interested in labeling them than listening to them. There was a claim that violence could break out by the citizens of Ottawa if they did not get their wish to have those truckers gone without any settlement of the Freedom issue. Their local citizen ‘freedom’ was more important than the national freedom.
The CBC had a synopsis of the report which had several points:
“Protesters wanted to be obeyed not heard”
There was a very small element that wanted a MOU delivered but was rejected as not legitimate or relevant to the freedom movement, and it was denied by the Convoy but not by the propaganda machines CBC etc.,.
“No leadership with which to negotiate”
Strange how the City and police were in constant communication with leaders who held daily press conferences (not attended by government media) and were eventually arrested for mischief and held in jail without bail for weeks, and who still have to live their lives under judicial supervision.
“No ability to control people at protests across the country”
Here we go again with this control of the people issue, particularly those who have a legitimate right to protest what they consider illegal actions by a WEF driven government. The border crossings blockades may have been inspired by the Freedom Convoy, but were not directly connected. The need for action had been shown to the world and the mantle was picked up at border crossings.
“Many protestors were peaceful but protests were not”
Now what the heck does that mean? CBC double speak propaganda at its finest is the best I can come up with.
I have not read the report and do not intend to as it claims something which never happened.
So anyway, as I sit here on Vancouver Island, as I did a year ago when I felt no threat to Canadian National security from anyone except the government, which was and still is determined to decimate our Constitution Act 1982 with its embedded Charter of Rights and Freedoms, our supposed Rule of Law, along with any small shred of democracy that exists in name only and a parliament that supposedly works for the people not the WEF and its pathetic hangers on.
Here I still am having watched most of the hearings and watched the videos of a year ago, showing the baton wielding police, backed by some kind of military armed to the teeth and RCMP horses stomping an indigenous old lady, bring that violence to the nonviolent protestors who I understand were already getting ready to leave, and I am/was supposed to feel threatened by the truckers? I spent years driving long-haul all-over Canada and the US and should have been there with my fellow truckers. Alas, I could not be and I still regret it. Yes, the federal and provincial governments are a threat to me but I see no act (Emergency or otherwise) being used to get rid of them. The answer I am told is vote out those you want out, but in doing so the first past the post system will not change unless there is a minority government with the control in the hands of small parties and or independents. Block voting undemocratic parties must go the way of the dodo. We have now had two elections since the last ‘first past the post’ election was declared to have taken place in 2015 and that was another broken promise.
“Sunny days are here again” turns out to be for corporate interests not the Canadian people.
Meanwhile, I am supposed to believe that the Freedom Convoy protestors were a threat to our national security but the extraordinarily violent “police” force was not? Of course they were not as they had a ‘get out of jail’ card since they were ordered into being by our PM, backed by Freeland (freezing money – such a dirty trick but typical), Blair and Mendicino to create the violent national security situation they were supposed to be removing. Where was our AG at this time? Hiding under his desk most likely. This whole thing reflected badly on Canada around a world which was watching our truckers trying to protect freedom with great interest.
Violent suppression is more akin to tinpot dictatorships that a supposedly democratic law-abiding country.
Now we have the vindication our PM organized so well, and Canada steps one more pace into an undemocratic, unjust and unlawful land mass at the beck and call of the WEF. “You will own nothing and be happy” and you will welcome all future invoking of the Emergency Act to defend the indefensible acts of this or a future regime.
Yesterday’s news people, move on; there is nothing here to cause you to worry about the future your children and grandchildren will face !
