Democracy oh Democracy where are you?

Where is democracy in Canada now?

“The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it”.    Joseph Mengele

The concept of democracy is that people vote for their representatives for all levels of government, and those elected represent their constituents to the ruling body, in our case our House of ill repute, and clearly that is not happening in Canada.

Just this month the people of Ontario were given their opportunity to vote, and such was the discontent with Ontario’s government that many did not even bother to vote as they knew that they are not and will not be represented.  This does not only apply to Ontario, but when a populace decides not to even bother to vote it speaks volumes for the state of our democracy in Canada.

We no longer have representatives in Canada at any level who are interested in their constituents but simply tow the party line which is mostly dictated by the corporate powers. 

We are promised the fertile earth and get only dry sand.

Actually, here in Canada w are becoming an arm of the WEF and WHO which mean our leaders will soon, if not already, be complete puppets of those organizations.

As long as the elected continue to act this way we are hopelessly screwed and democracy is further away with each election.

“Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it.”   Judge Learned Hand 

Our system should allow for checks and balances but it does not. Federally we have a senate which is supposed to be a house of sober second thought to our House of ill Repute, and when they recently got a chance to hold that house of ill repute in check by appearing ready to refuse to agree to the emergency powers illegally invoked by our “nice hair” drama teacher, he simply reversed himself and revoked those emergency powers. The Senate was not needed in this case but it appears they were ready for once to act on behalf of Canadians and their freedoms 

There is talk of doing away with the monarchy when the current Queen passes away.  I am sympathetic with that concept as I have and feel no loyalty to Charles, but what will we do if we do decide to go that way?

Will we need a new constitution written by Klaus Schwab who is not interested in provincial powers?

Will we indeed officially become a banana republic with some idiotic tinpot puppet in control?  (Oops, we may be there already!)

Will we become a republic with a moron with a powerful pen to sign way our freedoms?

The crown has representatives at federal and provincial, levels who sign all new laws into effect, so does that mean with their demise we will have petty gods in each province too?

We got an example recently of what could happen with the federal and provincial mandates over the Fauci flu with Trudeau and Bill Gates making an obscene amount of money from the untested, toxic jabs which did not stop that flu, did not create herd immunity and have had and will continue to have horrendous short and long term side effects.

‘The truth often evades being recognized due to its utter incredibility’   Pericles?

Is that what we want, or are we willing to actually demand of our representatives that they act for us rather than against us?

Often, I have felt like a lone voice in the forest, but recently I have realized that more and more people are waking up. Will we stand up or simply sit idly by while we are the recipients of hate speech from a WEF puppet with “nice hair”?  Speech that would have put you or I into the criminal court.

We can take it or we can insist that our elected representatives and their hired, but unelected, underlings act on our behalf instead of some wealthy corporate fat cat lobbyists.

However, one thing is very clear Canada is NOT a democratic country

More rumblings from the west coast of Canada

I have been stewing about this for a few days now and have reached the point where I cannot contain myself any longer.

For more than two years now the CBC has fed us a line of bullshit unequaled in Canadian history, or at least since Brian Mulroney rode his hobby horse away from Reagan’s stallion after the FTA back when (1989)   Yes, I know they (CBC) have been off the mark for much longer than that but since early 2020 they have excelled in their propaganda of fear and division created by our moronic ex school teacher without any clothes, assisted by Fauci and Gates.  While he still talks of helping the middle class and those struggling to join it he actually has destroyed the middle class here in Canada whilst his family foundation is raking in a fortune from every MnRA jab.  Aquitas from UBC developed and of course patented the delivery system for these jabs – not sure how they beat Fauci to it but they did and 40% of Aquitas is owned by – you guessed it – the Trudeau foundation.  Without the fear and panic caused by the CBC and their constant promotion of Trudeau in his Svengali disguise demanding that we all get his jab whilst he turned Canada into a potential zombie state we might have learned the truth from those real scientists who were trying to get our attention.  Instead, all we got was paid mouthpieces whose ready abandonment of the Hippocratic Oath was amazing.

So now here we are two years later still being fed the same line of BS but in-between we have had the stripping of the rights and freedoms we used to have over our bodies and what is pumped into them either experimentally or not and full information about ingredients and possible long-term side effects.  Illegal mandates in the transport industry inspired a Freedom Convoy which arrived peacefully in Ottawa, occupied the streets there and remained peaceful; cleaning the garbage and snow from the streets; looking after war memorial and Terry Fox Statute, feeding the homeless, hungry population of downtown Ottawa, and having a party every weekend for all, including children.  Of course, this had to end violently as that is all Bill Blair knows, and Trudeau illegally invoked The Emergencies Act to enable that violence to take place – which of course it did with military police using the usual methods to violently disperse the freedom convoy and steal bank accounts of participants and jail without bail so called leaders of a peaceful protest for mischief.  Then when that violent damage was done and it looked as though the Senate was about to reject the illegal use of this act, it was abruptly withdrawn.  Did we get the news and explanation as to why from the CBC?  Of course not as they are a political arm now not a real news source.

Just in time to change the channel there is a conflict which has been brewing for a decade or more that blows up in Ukraine so of course reporters go there to spread the false news yet again.

So after these years of lies and deceit by the CBC can we be blamed for believing that everything we hear from over there is BS.  Why are we taking the actions we are to supply a CIA/Nazi backed army to attack its own people and propagandize that it is the Russians who are doing it?   I for one do not buy into this as nobody has been able to explain to me why the Russians would want to  kill those who they want to liberate.  So once again I am being ostracized as someone with no idea what is going on.   Really?  Zelensky is part of Schwab’s growing empire of globalists so of course our Canadian globalists  have to assist him at the expense of the Canadian people.

Here in alpahabetical  order is the list of MPs who have ties to the WEF:

Terry Beech, Marie-Claude Bilbeau, Randy Boissonault,Francois-Phillip Champagne, Ed Fast, Sean Fraser,Chrystia Freeland, Marc Garneau, Karina Gould, Patty Hajdu, Ahmed Hussen, Melanie Joly, Mike Lake, Mary Ng,Ginettee Pettitpas Taylor, Pierre Poilievre, Michelle Rempel, Andrew Sheer, Jagmeet Singh, Justin Trudeau, Jonathan Wilkinson

As you can see that is a big chink of the cabinet, some conservatives and even an MP from the fringe party – the NDP.  I would have thought that as the WEF is so completely opposite to what the Canadian people want for themselves and Canada, membership in such a lunatic group should be disclosed as conflict of interest but I also suppose that with this particular PM nothing about Canadian law applies anymore.

Ms. May has also swallowed the koolaid on this one as she did with the Freedom convoy, and the Covid thing too.

Then along comes the budget 2022 and caused me to write to one of those on the list:

To Chrystia Freeland, Canadian Finance Minister, Board member of the WEF

Re Budget 2022

While I do appreciate that you must obey your leaders, Trudeau, Schwab and Zelensky, I cannot endorse your efforts to give weapons of war and death to a CIA/Nazi regime in the Ukraine.

These will only be used against Ukrainians to devastating effect and blamed of course on the Russians.  No one has been able to explain to me why Russia would bomb and shoot those who wish to be free and maybe join them, but I do understand why the military in the western part of the country would want to destroy those who want to leave.

If you were to listen to your other “democratic” bosses – the Canadian people – I am sure you would find that the vast majority would prefer that you spend this obscene amount of money on running, fresh water on reserves, or really have an impact on low-cost housing both on and off reserves, but you cannot listen to the Canadian people can you?

I do not consent to your willful spending of money on a conflict far from our shores with absolutely no benefit for Canada when we need soo much done here at home.

In disgust

Jeremy Arney etc.,

Since then, the Canadian military seems to have been stripped of its heavy artillery so it can be sent overseas for another “army” to use on its civilian population and blamed yet again on Russians.

I know I am older now, not necessarily wiser but it does seem to me that there is huge apathy here in Canada to what is really being done to us. Yes, I hear lots of people saying its all bs but they are not willing to do anything about it.  The great Canadian live and let live seems to have taken on a new meaning – live until they take it away from us.

Time to go back to bed and rest for my shift tonight.

Wonder how many discards this got?

To Chrystia Freeland Canadian MP
Board member of the World Economic Forum

The Canadian government has criminalized the receiving of funds from the Freedom Convoy 2022 campaign and now are trying to seize the funds to redistribute.

This is what I received in an email yesterday from GiveSendGo and my immediate reaction was one of frustration and anger that once again a man who proclaims Democracy, Freedom, Sovereignty and Rule of Law for everyone around the world yet does not practice any of them here in Canada, has deliberately attacked Canadians rights to support what they consider to be a good cause; The cause of Freedom.  This is the second time for the same cause so there can be no clearer message to all Canadians: “If you support Freedoms guaranteed in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms you are a criminal”.

I consider now that any donations requested of me for the Liberal Party of Canada will also be unlawful solicitation for the WEF.  

When a peaceful protest about unlawful actions by the federal government causes this much hatred, and indeed blatant hate speech from a Prime Minister, who then deliberately instigates police violence, it is clear that all vestiges of the Rule of Law and Democracy have left the room.

This Liberal Government is totally out of control and has lost sight of Canada and the Canadian people just to placate and please Klaus Schwab and in your case to ensure your continued membership on the Board of his World Economic Forum.

You cannot serve him on the one hand and the Canadian People on the other as his and our views on life are diametrically opposite; his being that we are all slaves and should be happy to be so, and ours that we still believe that freedom and the rule of law is possible in Canada in spite of this PM and you; so, I suggest you resign your seat in the House of Commons immediately in order to cease your unlawful, anti- Charter of Rights and Freedoms activities which are also against the common law of Canada.

I no longer consent to anything you have done or are doing because I now believe it is your intent to destroy Canada.

In total disgust,

Jeremy Arney

What a hollow suit !

Last week I watched on the Conflict Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) as our PM went to Europe to meet with real, or as real as they get today, leaders over there.

He was as usual well dressed and coiffed and strode like a man full of Klaus Schwab instilled confidence. However, he made such a fool of himself whenever he opened his mouth that I cringed that he really thought he was representing Canada.

Here is a man who said on twitter  (2 Feb 2022) of peaceful truckers:

“Today in the House all MPs unanimously condemned the antisemitic, islamophobia, anti-black racism, homophobia and transphobia that we have ever seen on display in Ottawa over the past number of days. Together. Let’s keep working to make Canada more inclusive.”

Actually, I read Hansard for that day and found no mention of any of the gross accusations the MPs were supposed to have supported. Once again, our PM is promoting his own agenda and words onto others.

At any given time, I suspect there are more of those feelings in the chamber than there was outside where the whole protest was inclusive and full of peace and love. To any one of those MPs who supposedly condemned the protestors on Feb 2 do not make the mistake of thinking this is over. Freedom is too strong. You should cherish it and allow yourselves to be free to support your constituents or you may well get fired next election.

Then the Emergency Act was invoked to deal with a parking problem in Ottawa,  and brutal police enforcement against those who did not resists them even when being held on the ground and kneed, pepper strayed directly into their face, or trampled by horses. Imported thugs waded onto lines of peaceful protestors with batons being used to beat them back even though they were against concrete barriers.  Bill Blair must have been wetting himself with glee and remembering Toronto.

The Emergency Act had to be passed in the HOC and the Senate and it looked as if it would not pass in the Senate, and the parking problem having been brutally solved, so low and behold it was revoked in the nick of time.

But the point here is that this whole thing was about Freedom from being coerced into taking experimental and toxic jabs against a not quite regular flu.  No one in the convoy was a particular  anti-vaxxer, in fact most had already submitted to the coercion and been jabbed, but the illegal mandates towards those who work in the federal jurisdiction of the transport sector and specially to those truckers who crossed the border with the USA, who had to take a ten day quarantine when they came home was too much. Freeland exempted 200,00 civil employees from jabs but these did not include independent truckers. To go from hero to vilification in two years should be reserved for people like Trudeau, except he was never a hero after he rescinded his Election change promise. 

So here is this PM over there in Europe talking about Freedom and Democracy and Sovereignty and the Rule of Law which are all things he is denying Canadians.  Can he not see that the whole world is laughing at him?  He is also stealing from our military stockpiles which will have to be replenished, and donating huge sums of money to Ukraine with no idea of how he will pay for it or even what it will actually be used for. That is a subject for another day.

How do you think that the half of the Canadian government cabinet who are also under Klaus Schwab’s thumb feel about all this?  Probably do not care at all.

One more quote from Trudeau:

“While the Emergency Act is over the issue won’t just go way. We need to constantly work to defend our democracy. The Emergency Act was created to flow from and uphold the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These measures had to be and were compliant with the Charter.”  

Defend our democracy? What democracy is he waffling about here? We do not have democracy here in Canada; we have a semi-dictatorship where all the power lies with the PM and the PMO instead of with the people. Anyone who claims we are a democratic country is simply smoking the wrong stuff. How can anyone equate police thuggery and violence in the face of a very peaceful request for return of freedoms, as being in compliance with the charter?

No matter how hard I try I simple can’t imagine that any Act of Parliament should be deliberately in opposition to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  Beating up on peacefully demonstrating grannies, reporters and freedom seekers by imported military styled police thugs is in compliance with which Charter from which banana republic?

By the way for the last two years at almost 24 hours a day CBC could be:  Covid/Climate-Catastrophe/Convoy/Conflict Broadcasting Corporation but whichever, it does not serve Canadians as it has all just been propaganda on behalf of a man who is making a fortune from his family trust owning 40% of Aquitas, and getting royalties from every jab around the world.

When Canada really needs a leader where can we find one?

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.

What now Trudeau

          Is Justin Trudeau for the people of Canada or for the big corporations?

From Natural News

“Bill Gates admits that 700,000 people will be harmed or killed by his coronavirus vacines

 

Sunday, May 17, 2020 by: Ethan Huff

Bill Gates also says flu vaccines do not work for older people

During this same interview, Gates admitted something that we, too, have reported on: that influenza vaccines are pretty much useless in older people.

Though supposedly high-risk seniors are pushed to get their flu shots annually, Gates confessed to the fact that this yearly ritual does nothing to protect them against the flu.

“The efficacy of vaccines in older people is always a huge challenge,” Gates stated. “It turns out the flu vaccine isn’t that effective in elderly people.”

“And that actual decision of, ok, let’s go and give this vaccine to the entire world, governments will have to be involved because there will be some risk and indemnification needed.”

“The side effect of treason is lead poisoning or rope burn, but not usually both,” joked one Big League Politics commenter in reference to Bill Gates.

John the Baptist paved the way for Jesus,” wrote another. “Bill Gates is paving the way for the antichrist.”

And yet:

“Canada is sending nearly $800 million to an GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, an organization founded by Bill Gates that works with the WHO to provide universal access to vaccines, and the the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, an organization created by the WHO

According to a press release from the office of Canadian Minister of International Development Karina Gould, the money will come in one payment of $600 million, followed by a promised $47.5 million over the next four years.”

That is to say, $600 million now and almost $ 12 million a year for 4 years.  Is this a Prime Ministerial executive order in response to incessant lobbying or has it been voted on in our makeshift parliament?   In either case it is shutting the barn door after the horses are gone, and please tell me that this will not be financed by the Bank of Canada.

That is a lot of money that could be spent on Canadians such as the First Nations, Inuit and Metis reservations to give them drinkable water, or nationalizing seniors’ homes to provide first class care instead of the current scrimping and saving by private corporations trying to make an enormous profit on the cheap; or money for the CMHA to provide for the homeless, or hospital beds for the sick without enough insurance, or maybe there could be some tax relief for the working poor instead of massive cuts for the very wealthy and big business, thereby giving back to the taxpayers instead of pandering to the tax dodgers who thrive by using off shore tax havens.  It would be interesting to know just how much tax Gates’s companies Microsoft, Bayer (Monsanto) and his obvious interest in big pharma companies who produce these toxic vaccinations are paying into Canada’s treasury. Good luck in finding out!  Perhaps, and most likely, GAVI even claims charity status!

It is interesting that 80 years after it was created to help Canada out of the depression of the 1930s era, fully pay for our part in WW2, create the St Lawrence Seaway, our health program and old age pension among such things as roads, bridges, hospitals and schools, the Bank of Canada finally after 46 years in the wilderness simply as an inflation watchdog, has been resuscitated by the son of the man who switched it off.   But even then, there is a reason which is only partially to help Canada and its provinces and that reason is to help big corporations by purchasing their bonds! Where, I ask, in the Bank of Canada Act, or in its mandate does this get covered? Big corporations with their huge profits over the years and their ability to raise money through the stock markets, or borrowing from their friendly private banks, are now able to take advantage of the Bank of Canada’s lower rate of interest. If ever there was any further evidence needed that Canada is not a democracy but a corpocracy this must be it.  We, as Canadians, own the Bank of Canada, not the IMF, BIS or World bank and their member private central banks.   When will we see an end to the multitude of lobbyists who bargain for such advantages? And worst yet get them whilst you and I can’t even get a letter in response to our letters to Ministers or even most MPs.   Something is still very wrong and getting worse. If you have money for lobbyists to get almost anything you want while most Canadians are stricken by debt with less and less relief in sight, then we know something is way out of wack.  The choice of rent or food should never happen in a country such as Canada and yet for the vast majority of Canadians it does.   But we have to give largess to the fat “for-profit” corporations even in times such as these. I would like to think that the constant demand by the Canadian Action Party has had something to do with this, but I am aware enough to know it is strictly to pacify the big “for-profit” and any cost corporations.

The disaster called the conservative party of Canada is trying to find a leader and talk of Stephen Harper being called back seems as ridiculous as it sounds.  After all, he is already calling for smaller government when he increased the number of MPs by 30 and then tried very hard to take away the right of thousands of Canadians to vote! Surely we need that just as we need holes in our heads. By the way, the current crop seems to want a smaller deficit yet more money for their hard-hit constituents…Some things never change.

More than ever now is the time when Canada needs a hero and I see no sign of one on the horizon.  What I see instead is panic and pandemonium, ever-increasing national debt and ever-increasing anger, fear and distrust between Canadians.

Be safe…..

Jeremy

PS. Every year thousands of people die from complications with the regular old flu and I wonder how many of these “flu” deaths have been classified as COVID to help pad the figures.  If none, then I wonder how many more have died from the regular old flu and e simply not hearing about them?

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?

A new bigger cabinet for Canada or is it?

 

 

I watched the swearing of the 2019 Liberal Cabinet with some interest and some great disappointment.

First and most important the same old oaths of allegiance were made to the Queen of the Commonwealth rather than to the people of Canada. Two things on this. First, she doesn’t pay one single solitary penny (or now obsolete cent) towards those who are swearing allegiance to her or to her representative here in Canada who is also paid and a home is provided for by the people of Canada to whom she owes absolutely no allegiance. She is simply a figurehead.   Second, if these MPs are elected and paid for by the people of Canada why do they not consider us allegiance worthy?

As to the cabinet itself it was a huge relief to se that Freeland was removed from the Foreign Office which might indicate that Canada will once again have relationships with all countries, Clearly, Freeland has some very strong views about which countries were and are acceptable to Canadians and I would venture to say that she was wrong in asserting her own prejudices upon us all.  It was and is and should be very important to have some relationship with all countries, especially those with whom we have disagreements.  How will differences be solved if we have to use countries such as Italy for example to communicate our views?   Perhaps if Ms. Freeland had spent more time on diplomatic relationships with those countries instead of taking over trade agreements (really disguised investment agreements) when we had a Trade Minister perfectly capable of doing that job then we would have more friends and fewer enemy states. Our relationships to Russia, Iran, China and Venezuela to mention just a few depended entirely on her whims and prejudices and not necessarily the desires of the Canadian people.  Since we are trying for a seat on the Security Council again then we should have been making friends not exacerbating her enemies.  Her position as deputy PM fills me with concern.

Searching for ministers who had any ties to the west – Alberta and Saskatchewan really – is I suppose a political future reality, but in my view, those two provinces clearly banked on Scheer being elected and lost.  Too bad.  They will be looked after as they are still part of Canada but to pander to their needs when they are so clearly out of step with reality is nonsense.   Oil is different from bitumen, and bitumen is what is extracted from the tar sands not oil. CBC pundits such as Alison Redford and the ultra-conservative Christy Clark seemed to think that oil and gas is still the number one priority for Canada rather than developing clean alternatives asap.  I still have no word from any bitumen export promoters as to where these “new” markets are located.

When CN and CP were sold to private interests any clout with them disappears into corporate profit which is separate from the needs of the Canadian people.   Has everyone forgotten what happened after the Wheat Board was closed (against the grain farmers wishes) and then sold to the Saudis and so no-one ordered rail cars for the grain?  Now there is a strike based on personnel safety – which could end up with another Lac Megantic disaster if not taken care of – and those provinces are screaming for back to work legislation. Oh boy.

Another disappointment is that there will be no return to the use of our own public  bank – the Bank of Canada – to finance what we need as both the Minister of Finance and the PM are both puppets to the big banks, both domestic and international and their profits must be assured no matter how much it costs the people of Canada.

Then there is O’Regan who mishandled how many portfolios (3) s in the last parliament being given even more powers as Minister of Natural Resources of all things.  Must be nice to be a buddy to the PM what?   How he will deal with the likes of Kenny whose redneck, bigoted,white supremacist roots are plain to see will be interesting to watch. I expect him to retreat in tears very quickly.

Overall not a particularly impressing cabinet but I will wait to see what happens.

What the heck is going on?

February 7th 2019

 

From: Rule of law, to breaking UN declaration, to recognizing a rebel as an interim president to giving $53 million to that same country.

“Regardless of what goes on in other countries, Canada is — and will always remain — a country of the rule of law,” Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa on Wednesday.

 No State or group of States has the right to intervene or interfere in any form or for any reason whatsoever in the internal and external affairs of other States. … The right and duties set out in this Declaration are interrelated and are in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations.Dec 9, 1981

  1. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks with Juan Guaidó, Interim President of Venezuela

Ottawa, Ontario – February 3, 2019

Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with the Interim President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó. The two leaders discussed the importance of the international community sending a clear message regarding the illegitimacy of the Maduro regime and the need to respect the Venezuelan Constitution. Both underscored the importance that free and fair Presidential elections be held.

The Prime Minister commended Juan Guaidó for his courage and leadership in helping to return democracy to Venezuela and offered Canada’s continued support.  The Prime Minister noted that the Lima Group meeting in Ottawa tomorrow will consider how the international community can further support the people of Venezuela, including through immediate humanitarian assistance.

Juan Guaidó conveyed his commitment to a peaceful transition to democracy, in line with the Venezuelan Constitution, and thanked the Prime Minister for Canada’s role in helping lead the international response to the crisis in Venezuela.

I could fully understand this behaviour from Donald Trump who probably wants to build a Trump Tower or Golf Course there and to whom the relevance of truth or consequences has no meaning, but to come from Canada?  

Where is the mandate from the people of Canada for this serial interference in defiance of the UN declaration?  Do we not matter when we are supposed to pay for this instead of real-time problems here at home?  

 Rule of law only applies when it is convenient maybe?

Of course how silly of me….it’s simply an extension of the Bev Oda / Stephen Harper bribery in South America on behalf of Canadian Mining Corporations.   See the “Ugly Canadian” by Yves Engler for full details on that corruption and how much it cost us. Remember that “Surprise” cartoon of Harper removing a Trudeau mask to reveal himself? 

$53 million would supply a lot of mobile homes to Cat Lake or any other reservation with housing mould problems.   It would create jobs for Canadian manufacturers – if there are any still in Canada, I think one somewhere in Ontario may still be building I am not sure or maybe Ford has closed them down by now.  But safe warm houses for our original people is not a priority whereas the future gross profit, at local inhabitants’ loss of rights and homes even their lives, for some Canadian mining corporations is.  

Sounds about right for a crown/corporation owned and run colony.

So what do we do about it?

Our taxes pay for those who make these very poor judgements so maybe we should refuse to pay for MPs who put corporate greed and profit over Canadian wellbeing – and I mean ALL Canadians which includes the First Nations, Inuit and Metis.   Tax time is coming so claim your refunds but if you owe do not submit one penny (?) extra until you get an accounting in writing from your MP as to why he/she should be paid by you and not the crown to whom they swore allegiance.

I hear you say that they will come after you for sure and yes they will, but if 20 million of us do it that would be a rather daunting task and would certainly make a strong point. After all, they like to get paid just as do you even if their $167,000 per year plus expenses (for a backbencher) is three or four times what you make.

When the election is finally called this fall, remember to vote for someone new with small party or independent status and get rid of these crown/corporation owned puppets.  Maybe even run yourself and help bring some semblance of reality to Canada.

Canada is back ?????

Sent to Prime Minister Trudeau and other political misfits listed below

Unist’ot’en, Cat Lake and Venezuela

I am very upset and frustrated at the actions taken by the RCMP on behalf of a corporation which has not and obviously does not feel the need to get agreement from all levels of aboriginal leadership before it destroys the livelihood and, eventually I am sure, the homes of those Canadians – the people of Unist’ot’en. What is happening in northern BC is indeed an insult to not only the people who live there, but also to all Canadians.

Even Lord Dufferin stated back in the 1800s that there was “an initial error” in the way BC dealt with the “Indian title” issue. In the talk he went on and said that in Canada, “Before we touch a single acre, we make a treaty with the chief representing the bands we are dealing with, and having agreed up and paid the stipulated price….we enter into possession, but not until then do we consider that we are entitled to deal with a single acre”.

We do understand that in swearing allegiance to the Crown (sic. corporate power and profit) and not to the Canadian people you have in fact abandoned all the Canadian people to please that Crown. Now you are going to ask us to vote you back in again so that you can swear allegiance to a foreign entity again and ignore us until 2023. No wonder you didn’t want anything but FPTP voting.

I cannot understand how thick skinned you must be to state over and over again that your priority is to establish a good relationship with our First Nations, Inuit and Metis, and yet here you are using a national rent-a-cop paramilitary force to stop them from accessing their homes and trap lines. At the same time, that force is protecting and even promoting the illegal actions of Coastal GasLink and their contractors. Clearly, you have no shame, no humility, no understanding of anything but bowing down to the corporate profit which guides what you do.

What is truly sickening is that any alternative government will do exactly the same as both those other parties are as controlled by the Crown and corporate wellbeing as are you. Even a minority government will no longer be a viable alternative, as all members will swear allegiance not to the Canadian people who vote for you and pay for you but to the Crown.

How many times do you have to be reminded that each time you refer to Canada as a democracy in our House of Commons you are showing us your ignorance at what a democracy is or should be, and you are at the same time misleading the House which is supposed to be against the House rules. Canada has never been a democracy and never will be under the present governmental stewardship. We have a parliamentary system that is indifferent to the people which is the exact opposite of a democracy.

Combined that with your acceptance of an upstart as the new president of Venezuela you have demonstrated again to the Canadian people that you are out of touch with us, that you are out of touch with what Canada should and could be, or is this what you really meant by: “Canada is back”..

No State or group of States has the right to intervene or interfere in any form or for any reason whatsoever in the internal and external affairs of other States. … The right and duties set out in this Declaration are interrelated and are in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations.Dec 9, 1981

What right, I ask you, do you have to complain about another country’s government and its perceived bad treatment of it’s people when here at home in Canada we have deliberately kept our First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in poverty and squalour on reservations not of their choosing, living without drinkable water and in moldy houses as now is shown to be the case in yet another reservation – Cat Lake. Instead, you self-righteously take your orders from foreigners and their corporations before you deal with the problems we have right here in Canada.

Did you not learn anything by our actions in that disastrous and horrendous war on the people of Libya on behalf of the IMF? American military intervention means bombing what they consider to be an offending country into rubble and oblivion without regard for the civilians killed as happened in Libya. Do you want to take us there again?

All your grand words and talk of perceived atrocities in another country means nothing when you treat our original inhabitants of this fantastic land like vermin, to be pushed aside and extinguished all for the sake of a few worthless pieces of paper.

Yes, I am angry and absolutely disgusted.

I am too old to assist physically but I have and will again donate to and support the Unist’ot’en cause and their right to live unmolested on their un-ceded traditional territories which, up until the European settlers came with gold lust and power in their hearts, have supported their way of life for millennium.
