Do NOT Reward Incompetence

Incompetence is the inability to perform; lack of competence; ineptitude.

Aspects of incompetence include:

The above is a portion of a ‘textbook’ definition from Wikipedia, NOT a criticism of someone’s character – or even their intent, individually or collectively. Please keep that important distinction in mind as you read the entirety of this article.

Decisions must be made. Continuously. By all of us. Some are relatively easy and don’t take much thought. Choosing high probability outcomes over low probability outcomes. Advancing on a green light – not a red light. Wearing shoes while walking on broken glass.

Other decisions are not quite so easy – but all have consequences, and outcomes.

The current Liberal government under out self-proclaimed first ‘post-national’ Prime Minister is making a number of decisions ruinous to the social fabric of Canada, the economic well-being of Canada, adherence to the ‘Rule of Law’ in Canada and Trudeau has even blatantly ignored his oath of office by abrogating his responsibilities to Canadians by acquiescing to ‘Compacts’ and ‘Accords’ that allow unelected foreign individuals and entities, specifically the morally corrupt United Nations, to dictate Canadian policies and financial obligations.

The Liberals under Trudeau have made their decisions – on the SNC Lavalin corruption scandal, on the Paris Accord, on the Global Compact on Migration, on Supply Management.

The decisions have been made – and the consequences are becoming increasingly apparent as our economy grinds to a halt, bordering on recession. Liberal caucus members are being booted out for standing up for their principles and the Rule of Law. Canadians are already starting to feel the choking constriction on discretionary spending as a result of the Carbon Tax.

Canadians are fighting back against Immigration Policies being dictated by the United Nations, instead of being judiciously administered by our own ‘once sovereign’ government. Canadians continue to pay multi-millions of dollars to subsidize a few privileged agricultural sectors to the detriment of other agricultural sectors as well as the hapless consumer.

Even the compliant Main Stream Media in Canada has been ‘bought and paid for’ with the recent $595 Million bribe, courtesy of the Canadian taxpayers, ensuring the continuing irrational and highly favorably biased press coverage that the Liberals enjoy from a complicit media.

While there be consequences? Only the voter can decide in October (or sooner) as we get our all too infrequent opportunity to remove an ‘incompetent’ government from office.

Removing the Liberals from wielding otherwise unaccountable political power is the ‘power’ that the voter holds constitutionally – and must exercise with the best interests of the country and Canadians in mind.

Canadians will make a decision in 2019 – and not everyone will be happy with the outcome.

Even within new political movements and federal political parties, the matter of dealing with incompetence must be addressed – and dealt with in the best interests of the membership – and the principles of the party.

Recently, the People’s Party of Canada has been assaulted on social media and even in pockets of Main Stream Media by articles and comments suggesting that there is something amiss within the ranks of the PPC – and its leadership.

I am asserting, emphatically, that there is nothing newsworthy amiss within the ranks of the PPC nor in its leadership.

Instead, there was a necessary, and principled, decision to deal with our own identified internal incompetence displayed by certain individuals who, while perhaps well-intentioned, were not contributing positively in accordance with the high standards set by the People’s Party of Canada in the discharging of their responsibilities. In short, whatever the intent, the ultimate result was incompetent. Demonstrably and empirically, irrefutably incompetent.

Incompetence, at any level, and for any reason, cannot and should not be rewarded.

The People’s Party of Canada made a decision, a necessary decision, a principled decision, in February, 2019 – and not everyone will be happy with the outcome.

If the People’s Party of Canada wants to demonstrate to Canadian voters that it has the courage of its convictions and an unwavering belief in its principles, it cannot, and should not, tolerate incompetence within its own development process any more than the Canadian voter should support incompetence when assessing political alternatives heading into this critical 2019 federal election.

National Sovereignty -Canada’s No. 1 Issue?

National Sovereignty is “The” Most Pressing Issue For Canadians

by Alex

The landscape has been changing even more in recent years. Who governs your country, and what agenda they have matters. But that divide is not what we have been led to believe.

It is not Left v.s. Right. Rather,It is Globalist v.s. Nationalist

A Nationalist believes that their country should remain sovereign, and that the citizens should be responsible for determining its destiny. There will be differences of opinions, yes, but the belief is still that citizens should be in charge of their future. The culture, language, heritage and traditions should remain intact. Control should lie with elected representatives of a Federal Parliament/Congress.

A Globalist believes that national sovereignty should be eroded or stopped altogether in the name of “the greater good”. This ideology rejects any sort of distinctive national identity, and promotes world government/1-world vision ideals. The needs and interests of host nations are obstacles to be overcome, and a global body should determine what is best for everyone. 
If you think your Federal representatives don’t look after your interests, do you think Global reps would do any better?

There is not a single administration in Canada that is responsible for this. Successive governments have implemented UN and Globalists ideas for over 50 years now. It is death by a thousand cuts.

Across the Western World, so called “Conservative” parties implement much the same policies as Liberals. They just aren’t as gung ho when selling them to the people.

To name a few:

UN Global Migration Compact-UN Agenda 21/2030

UN Digitial Cooperation (Internet Regulation)

UN Religious Defamation (Blasphemy Ban)

UN Paris Accord (Carbon Taxes)

UN Global Citizenship Initiative

UN Gender Agenda

Much of the work on my site, Canuck Law, has been to draw attention to what is happening. Globalist forces are piece by piece taking away our freedoms and autonomy.

In addition to writing about this topic, I took action in a different way: going to court (3 times now).

Challenge to the UN Global Migration Compact:

As was reported, I went to Calgary on December 6, 2018 in an attempt to file a legal challenge to it being implemented.

 The short version of events is this, after some back and forth, the Federal Court Judge threw out the case (and awarded $500 in court costs). Although numerous grounds were cited in the reasons, one important thing stands out.

THE FEDERAL COURT RULED THAT THE United Nations Global Migration Compact WAS NEVER INTENDED TO BE A BINDING LEGAL CONTRACT. 

Many of us were worried that signing this agreement would become a sort of “soft law”, which legally binding future decisions could then be based off of. In a sense, leaving the Compact unchallenged would the worst . But now that a Court has ruled it’s not binding, that “should” put a stop to it.

There are 2 other matters pending:

1/ Attempting to close the loophole in the Canada/US Safe 3rd Country Agreement. Canada and the US recognize each other as safe countries. Therefore, people attempting asylum claims should not be able to “shop” around, but claim asylum in the first country they reach. However, due to poor wording, it seems to not apply if they cross anywhere other than an official port.

2/ Although still in the proposal stages, hundreds of high ranking officials within UN supporting countries are floating the ideal of a UN Parliamentary Assembly, or Global Government. Obviously, Canada will have no control over its own interests if we joined such a group. Canada would be just 1 of 193 nations (and hold 0.5% of voting rights).

It will be interesting to see how those turn out.
Regardless, Canadians do need to wake up to what is happening around them. We don’t have a country, if we cannot control our borders, immigration, laws, or domestic policies.

I openly advocate leaving the UN (see https://canucklaw.ca/canada-should-leave-the-un-the-masterlist/). As more and more Canadians become aware, this opinion will certainly grow.

BIG COUNTRY + SMALL POPULATION = UNIQUE ECONOMIC NEEDS

As we all know, this great country of ours has one of the largest land masses of any nation on earth. We are also one of the least populous of all the developed nations of the world. These two factors create the need for certain conditions to be in place, to ensure that Canada’s economy works well for us all. These conditions relate to taxation, energy costs, and, most importantly of all, the value of money itself.

We need to have the lowest possible rates of taxation — that is, we must strive for a system in which each level of government collects only enough tax revenue to fund its current operations ( according to its Constitutional duties ), and no more. We must also strive for an equality of taxation, so that no one pays tax until he or she has earned enough to provide the basic necessities of life for themselves and their dependents, and that once that cost-of-living threshold is exceeded, every person pays at the same rate. Penalizing people for hard work and success is just as wrong as extracting it from those who cannot even meet their basic needs ; both practices must be ended, and never again must they be inflicted on the Canadian people. This is one of those things that sounds obvious, that hardly needs to be said out loud, or written down. And yet, when we observe the current situation. . .

A geographically large country, naturally, means large distances for the transport of raw materials, goods, and people. We also are frequently cursed with cold winters, and blessed with hot summers. And so, affordable energy — gasoline and diesel and jet fuel for transport, heating oil, natural gas, propane, electricity, and yes, coal for heating and cooling our homes and workplaces, and for powering industry — is not only desirable but essential to our well-being, physically as well as economically. This, again, would seem to be an obvious truth, a “no-brainer” in modern parlance. And yet. . .

The third essential condition for a broadly healthy Canadian economy, and one so important that it trumps all others, is a strong, stable currency. Strong, because a country of thirty-five million or so will never achieve the economies of scale of a country like our neighbor to the south, say, with its 350 million-plus people! Therefore we need our pay and our savings to be denominated in a currency that is at least equal in value to the US dollar, preferably higher. Remember that everything we buy is priced in US dollars, whether we realize it or not. A weakened Loonie artificially raises our cost of living above the requirements of reality. Stable because the weakening ( debasement ) of a nation’s currency is the most insidious and destructive form of taxation known to man. In fact, a government that has intentionally and with forethought debased/devalued its currency has committed and act of treason, or at the very least, common theft, against its people. Currency debasement ( more politely and misleadingly called “inflation” ) destroys the value of a human being’s labor ; her ingenuity ; his thrift. And what are those three things, after all — except the bedrock of a truly healthy economy, the most basic tools by which each of us can earn our living, and support ourselves and our families? So then, clearly the need for a strong, stable Loonie is something that, once again, should go without saying. And yet. . . And yet.

Currently, none of these vital conditions are in place. Canadian individuals and businesses alike are subject to a myriad of taxes, often at rates that would make a neighborhood loan shark green with envy. Energy costs are artificially inflated through hidden ( and unnecessary ) taxes, excessive regulation, and a mindless devotion to fanciful pseudoscientific theories, often quite openly. And as for the poor old Canadian dollar, well. . . keeping the Loonie artificially depressed has become pretty much the default position for all the alleged divisions of the political-bureaucratic complex — mainly because it is very lucrative for a very small subset of the population, the subset that contributes large sums to political parties, has connections and clout inside those parties, and can be counted on to provide high-paying-do-nothing jobs to retired politicians. The net effect of this is that ninety-five percent or more of the Canadian public is systematically impoverished for the benefit of a relative handful of insiders. Does that sound like good policy to you?

All of this must be changed, and changed soon. None of the old-guard parties will do anything substantial or even noticeable in these areas, no matter what their election-time rhetoric might be ; a casual glance at recent history will tell anyone that. No, we need to take a new direction. The road less traveled, as it were. We need a fresh approach in this country, and that approach is the People’s Party of Canada led by Maxime Bernier.

And that, as it were, will make all the difference.

 

Another New Year, and maybe — perhaps — a New Era in Canadian Politics

The new year, 2019, is upon us. How are everyone’s resolutions going? Same as mine, I’ll bet! But even if we slip a bit on the determination to quit eating junk food, or cut down on the beer, or to squeeze those sit-ups and crunches into our daily schedule, let us all make one resolution that we really do keep : Let us make 2019 the year that Canadian politics changed for the better. Let us make 2019 the year that government and its institutions started to work for the average Canadian, rather than against them.

Let us make this the year that punitive, confiscatory taxation ended forever ; the year that Canada adopted the principle that the people who earn their money by the sweat of their brows know better than politicians or bureaucrats how they should spend it ; the year that governments restricted themselves to taking only as much revenue as is needed to finance their basic, legitimate functions and services, and no more.

Let us make this the year that governments stopped hounding entrepreneurs out of business, through excessive and unnecessary regulation ; the year that they stopped taking money (taxes) from people making $ 12.00 per hour and giving it to various and sundry corporate welfare bums so they could continue to enjoy seven and even eight-figure incomes, even as the businesses and industries they control continued to gush red ink ; the year that Canada returned to a true free market economy, where governments began to (finally) stick to their duties and stopped trying to pick winners and losers.

Let us make this the year that Canada was made once again a businessman’s economy, once again a working man’s economy, where success is largely determined by work ethic, ingenuity, and thrift ; and let us make this the year we forever consigned to the ash heap of history this banker’s economy, this money-shuffler’s economy, in which we currently find ourselves trapped. For what true progress can be made while the main determiners of success are one’s relationship with one’s investment banker, and a willingness to knowingly take on mountains of debt that can never be repaid?

Above all, let us make this the year that we discarded the scurrilous notion that a country can be made stronger by making its individual citizens and legal residents weaker —  taxing them at 50 % – plus rates, constantly placing restrictions or outright bans on behaviours and pastimes that are of no harm to anyone, putting up artificial barriers to entry throughout numerous industries, etc. — and instead accepted the rather obvious fact that a strong nation can only be made up of strong individual citizens.  

Let us do all these things, friends, and more. Let us stop the bleeding — the bleeding of the Common Man — that has been going on for decades, since the so-called “Progressive Era” found its way into the Canadian body politic. Let us set the people of this great country loose to pursue their goals, their dreams, their passions, without undue interference. Let us do all these things, and in so doing make our country, the True North, strong and free like it never was before. We CAN do this. Indeed, we MUST.

Only One Goal for PPC in 2019

Creating 338 Electoral Districts in less than 3 months was a monumental achievement for the People’s Party of Canada in late 2018 – but it means absolutely nothing if the real goal is not reached in 2019.

There is only one goal – and that is to source, nominate, campaign and ultimately elect sufficient People’s Party of Canada Members of Parliament in October 2019 to change the course of Canadian federal politics – and possibly the course of history.  The battle is being fought worldwide between sovereignists and globalists for the fate of nation states.

In countries with strong nationalist values such as the USA and Australia (among others) the Populist movements have begun to restore the commitment to sovereignist emphasis on the ‘State ensuring and enshrining the best interests of its citizens’.  In other socialist trending countries, including Germany, Sweden and unfortunately Canada under the misplaced, destructive globalist dogma of  Trudeau’s Liberals, abrogation of duties to citizens in favour of globalist ideologies has prevailed in recent years.

Surprisingly, or perhaps not surprisingly, the French citizenry has started to strongly push back with the emergence of the Yellow Vest movement that is being emulated elsewhere, including in Canada.  (It is worthwhile to know that the values espoused by the Canadian Yellow Vest movement closely resemble the stated values of the People’s Party of Canada, even though the Yellow Vest movement is overtly apolitical).

It is almost astounding how quiet the complicit Main Stream Media has been on the numerous issues that are facing Canadians as a result of the globalist, unsustainable, economy crushing policies of the current Liberal majority government in the House of Commons.

It is simply incomprehensible that Canadians could potentially face another term of office for this morally corrupt group of socialist sycophants who have neither the ability, nor the resolve, to address current Canadian issues with any sense of patriotism, accountability or wisdom.

The model being utilized, all too successfully, by Trudeau and the Liberals is based on divisive identity politics that panders to any number of special interest groups with the expectation that those special interest groups will form a common voting bloc favouring the Liberals in 2019.

The majority of the Main Stream Media cannot be considered anything other than complicit allies of the Liberals going into 2019.  The recent $600 Million financial ‘bail out’ package announced by the Liberals to prop up failing once popular news media sources and outlets virtually ensures that these already left-leaning organizations will continue their established policy of ignoring all Trudeau/Liberal Party transgressions and shortcomings instead focusing their collective attention on issues south of the border.

This dereliction of responsibility and accountability to Canadians by too much of the failing Main Stream Media is only one hurdle that the People’s Party of Canada must overcome in 2019.

The prospect of ‘vote splitting’ will resonate loudly in conservative and populist circles.  Unquestionably, the more political parties that exist on any part of the political spectrum will inevitably split votes as the electorate has more choice.

Stay focused on the reality that only certain political parties have the policies and platform to countermand the disastrous consequences that have already emerged from the incompetent legislative disasters already passed by Trudeau’s Liberals.   Also stay focused on the disappointing similarities between Trudeau’s Liberal and Scheer’s Conservative Party of Canada.  It is increasingly apparent that Scheer’s misguided attempt to become a ‘Centrist’ leader of a ‘Centrist’ CPC will not get the job done.  

There is a strong likelihood that Scheer’s CPC will steal votes from the Liberals every bit as much as the People’s Party will most certainly draw votes away from the genuine ‘conservative’ segment of the CPC that still remains.  If the CPC and the Liberals both profess to be ‘Centrist’ parties committing to the same unsupportable UN agenda driven globalist policies, astute Canadians will soon recognize that the People’s Party of Canada is the only legitimate alternative to restoring Canada to a path of Canadian values and a ‘Strong and Free’ Canadian future.

A minority government with a PPC/CPC coalition is an outcome in October, 2019 that might actually benefit Canada the most.  It would force the CPC under Scheer to return to some of the genuine conservative values on which the CPC was based, now abandoned in pursuit of ‘power at any price’.

Rather than dealing with any more of the ‘hot button’ issues that are becoming more clear to the average voter, I choose to conclude this article with the serious challenge resultant from Bill C-76.  This questionable legislation was passed by a compliant NOT independent Senate in time to allow this Bill to become enforceable in time for the 2019 election.

While Bill C-76 sounds altruistic at first blush, a closer examination reveals that its real power is to limit the ability of a new political force to maximize its message while existing parties will benefit from their ‘already established’ presence in the minds of voters.

To quote the Canadian Civil Liberties Association presentation to the Parliamentary Committee:

“With respect to political advertising, the CCLA notes that the restrictions place significant limits on political expression, which lies at the core of the freedom of expression that is protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. While we appreciate and take seriously the concern that wealth should not be translated into the ability to dominate political discourse, we have not seen the evidence that purports to justify the restrictions contained in the Bill and the distinctions it makes between different types of political expression and different political actors. Restrictions on core political speech should not be imposed absent evidence that the restrictions are necessary and proportionate. This evidence has not been produced in relation to the existing third party advertising regime in the Canada Elections Act, nor with respect to the changes proposed by Bill C-76. Further, we suggest that the Committee consider whether limits on spending should be set by an independent body, rather than established in legislation (and subject to an inflation adjustment factor).”

The purpose of this legislation may mitigate the ability of concerned Canadians to mount an all-out assault against the sitting Liberal government under Trudeau.  It therefore becomes even more vital that Canadian voters intent on unseating the Liberals band together to get the message of the People’s Party of Canada out to friends, neighbours and acquaintances.

Canada cannot economically or societally sustain another Trudeau Liberal majority.  Neither can Canada allow a federal government to continue to abrogate its sworn pledge to Canadians to govern in the best interests of Canadians. We cannot allow our Canadian government to transfer that responsibility to a corrupt, agenda-driven United Nations group of unelected bureaucrats whose vision is not congruent with Canadian values, Canadian law and our shared Canadian future.

The People’s Party of Canada has a great message for Canadians – and a great messenger in Maxime Bernier.  The only goal that matters in 2019 is to ensure that both the message and the messenger are front and center in the discussions of responsible, accountable Canadians throughout 2019 and leading up to the October, 2019 federal election.

The 2019 Canadian federal election may well be a turning p0int in Canadian history.  The consequences of allowing the globalist aspirations of an incompetent Prime Minister (already touting himself as wanting to be the ‘first post-national Prime Minister’ in Canadian history) to continue his destructive dark, not sunny, ways are almost too alarming to imagine – or permit.

The Power of One. Conviction. Courage.

The world is full of doubters.  The world is rife with naysayers.  Canadians have become jaded, disenchanted and disgusted with the political climate – and our political system.

For almost as long as I can remember, I have been repeatedly asked ‘What do you want me to do about it?  Do you really think that one person can actually make a difference?

Today, I am happy to advise that the answer to the above question is ‘YES’.

Unequivocally.  Without qualification.  Without compromise.

Today, a passionate and remarkable courageous Canadian patriot has challenged the Canadian parliamentary system – in the process challenging the right of the Liberal majority government in the House of Commons to lead Canada into a globalist, agenda driven United Nations Compact on Global Migration.

While most Canadians have had enough trouble wrapping their heads around the inevitable consequences that will certainly arise should Canada foolishly allow an ideology driven, ‘post national’ incompetent Prime Minister to continue to abrogate his responsibilities (and his oath of office) by allowing a globalist agenda to start dictating Canadian immigration policy, a select few individuals have begun to speak out.

We admire those who have seen the danger from the outset.  Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada, was the first elected Member of Parliament to speak out against the Compact – and rightly so.  In the process, Mad Max has forced the weak leadership of Andrew Scheer and his special interest caucus into finally taking a ‘political stand’ against the Compact on Migration.

But, is a ‘political stunt’ by Opposition Members of Parliament sitting in the minority in the House of Commons really going to have any impact on the ultimate decision of Justin Trudeau to enter into this ill-advised deception, the consequences of which will be felt by all Canadians for generations to come?  An Opposition motion was already defeated in the House.

Maxime Bernier remains the only Canadian Member of Parliament who had the integrity, the personal commitment and the courage to initiate this debate in Parliament.  The pretense of Scheer, coupled with the obvious documented prevarications of Michelle Rempel who has spoken out of both sides of her mouth on the issue as the ‘Shadow’ to the Minister of Immigration, is just another clear indication that the Conservative Party of Canada is a political entity that truly has no underlying principles or integrity – relying instead on the results of polls and focus groups to belatedly help them guide their self-proclaimed ‘Centrist’ aspirations.

But this article is not about Maxime Bernier.   Nor is it about the People’s Party of Canada, Canada’s newest political party that is going to champion the rights and sovereignty of Canadians going into the 2019 election.

Instead, this article truly is about The Power of One.

While too many Canadians have adopted a defeatist attitude concerning our rights and remedies, cynical that their individual efforts will have any discernible impact, there are a few, far too few, who have the courage and the commitment to tilt bravely at the ponderous Windmills of Government, Quixote-like, using tools and enfranchised, constitutionally enshrined abilities that are available to us all.

We commend those who have signed Petitions denouncing the Global Compact on Migration (myself included).

We support those who will be giving their time to attend rallies this weekend throughout Canada, protesting the inadvisability of the Liberal Government signing an agreement that will significantly weaken Canada’s sovereignty and status as a democratic nation among nations.

As compelling as these initiatives are, or may become, they pale into almost insignificance when compared to the dedication and effort of a single Canadian Patriot who has taken it upon herself, in spite of the naysayers and doubters, to challenge the signing of this Draconian document in the only meaningful way recognized in law.

Today, a young woman boarded a flight from the interior of BC, and without virtually any outside assistance, filed a Statement of Claim in Canada’s Federal Court in Calgary, Alberta, arguing against the constitutionality and the legality of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signing this UN Sponsored Global Compact on Migration.

I have been fortunate enough to have been kept ‘in the loop’ as this courageous and committed young woman reached out to discuss the merits of her actions, then I shared some of her frustrations as many influential individuals well-known in media terms either ‘shied away’ from any involvement or participation, or chose to just ignore the emails and overtures that we sent.

Undeterred, Alex has persevered – and she is to be commended for it.  I can attest that she has spend dozens of hours doing her homework, researching the law, examining the constitution and reaching a conclusion that must be tested in the highest courts in the land.

Alex has, this day, Thursday, December 6, 2018 filed a Statement of Claim arguing that inalienable rights of Canadians will be affected by the decision of the Liberal Party of Canada to enter into an agreement that evidence shows that those self-same Liberals may have conspired to create – without prior consultation with the Canadian people.

Alex has advised that she is also preparing the necessary Temporary Injunction to be filed with the Federal Court and with all Provincial Attorneys General as the impact of the Global Compact on Migration affects not only the constitutional right and authorities of the Federal Government but also the Provincial Governments own constitutional powers and responsibilities, under Constitutional definitions.

This action has been taken by Alex in advance of the actual signing of the Global Compact on Migration because she believes, rightly so, that the interests and rights of Canadians must be protected and enforced by the highest courts in Canada, the Supreme Court being the ultimate authority on constitutional issues.

It is Alex’s sincere belief, based on extensive research and evidentiary precedent, that Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party have no legal basis on which to enter into this Global Compact on Migration – and that Canadians deserve an opportunity to have our voice heard both in and out of Parliament BEFORE such an agreement could ever become legitimate and legal.

The Order of Canada is an oft misused recognition of Canadians that have shown exemplary service to Canada in the performance of their duties and through their actions.

I would be proud to see that honour conferred some day upon Alex as she is the first, and only, Canadian to date (of whom I am aware) who has shown the courage, the commitment to Canada and the Rule of Law, and also the responsibility to her fellow Canadians to challenge the LEGAL authority of Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in their pursuit of yet another failed policy decision that will negatively impact the welfare and the well-being of Canadians, potentially for generations to come.

I urge you to get behind this young woman as she has planted a flag that millions of Canadians should rightfully rally to.  

There are few issues facing Canada that may have similar deleterious, negative consequences relating to this abandonment of Canadian sovereignty.

More nations worldwide every week are declaring that they will NOT sign this ideological Globalist agreement.  Many of our closest allies and neighbours have already spoken out against the ratification of this Compact.  I leave it up to you to do your own research and come to your own conclusions.  Inevitably, you cannot trust the Main Stream Media to give you a balanced, fair assessment.

Once you have established, in your own mind, that this is truly one of the ‘Hills to Die On’ as it truly is that consequential in the future well-being of Canada, then be prepared to stand behind this courageous, determined young woman as she faces the slings and arrows that she will inevitably draw.

Do not discount ‘The Power of One’.  Be prepared to provide your support, moral and financial, to ensure that ‘The Power of One’ carries the weight of millions of Canadians who need to voice our collective concerns in front of the highest courts in Canada.

Alex needs to know that she does not stand alone.

PPC Message? Wildfire.

The People’s Party of Canada, and the message of Maxime Bernier, is spreading like wildfire – the good kind.  Incredibly successful rallies have been held in the past week, Vancouver with more than 500 attendeesCalgary with more than 500 attendees and Etobicoke with more than 1,100 enthusiastic participants.

How are we doing locally?  Amazingly well!  Since Monday, November 12th, the People’s Party of Canada had interviews (with related articles) from both daily newpapers in Kelowna as well as Penticton, Global TV Okanagan broadcasted an interview with Daniel Joseph, newly elected President of the Kelowna-Lake Country EDA and CBC Radio Daylight South hosted by Chris Walker broadcasted a 10 minute live interview.

Growth of the People’s Party of Canada has been literally exponential.  In two short months, the PPC has more than 33,00 members.  EDA’s have been established in almost half of the 338 Electoral Districts throughout Canada.  All EDA’s will be in place by year’s end.  Elections Canada has granted the People’s Party of Canada ‘eligibility’ status as at November 14th, meaning that the People’s Party of Canada can now contest by-elections and become fully accredited and registered as a tax-deduction eligible federal Canadian political party as soon as the PPC runs its first candidate.

Locally, we are assisting in setting up the EDA’s in Central South BC.  By November 25th, all six Central South BC EDA’s will be created and managed by capable Boards of Directors.

With the federal election in Canada less than a year away, naysayers and doubters said that the People’s Party of Canada had no chance of mounting a legitimate campaign that will challenge the status quo.

Those naysayers and doubters will be proven wrong.

Orwell’s 1984. Here. Now.

Government agencies gaining access to all of your financial history -without your knowledge and consent. 

Authorities prosecuting individuals who have rightly and justly chosen to defend their homes and families in life-threatening situations.

An elected government taking an increasing percentage of your hard earned income and giving those tax dollars to third world despots and globalists organizations actively working to undermine  Canadian legal, social, economic and cultural values – replacing Canadian sovereignty with socialist ideological globalism.

Divisive identity politics that promotes special interest group interests ahead of the welfare and well-being of all Canadians, with justice and law no longer applied equally, universally and in accordance with legislation by ‘social activist’ judges who no longer respect the power of the legislative branch of government.

The looming spectre of a sitting Canadian government abrogating its responsibility to Canadians and allowing the UN to create an immigration policy that will overwhelm the Canadian identity and create an unsustainable financial burden of untoward proportions.

An elected government picking economic ‘winners and losers’ based on ideology and globalist lobbying instead of protecting and preserving the right of Canadian investors and workers to generate income and economic well-being in a free market, laissez faire demonstrably successful economic model as evidenced south of the 49th parallel since the election of Trump.

We watch our elected government, openly and publicly, encourage known terrorists and agents of foreign powers committed to the destruction of Canada and our value systems to return to Canada, whether Canadian citizens or not, with impunity and with blatant disregard of existing Canadian laws and international law concerning insurgents and terrorists.

Have we lost our collective minds?  How did we get to this place?  And why are more Canadians not standing up for the Canadian values that made our country strong, free and a land of opportunity?  When did we become acquiescent sheep instead of entrepreneurial, hard-working individuals interested in preserving our integrity, our freedom, our responsibilities, and our future?

Two of the most compelling and disturbing books of my youth were written by Eric Arthur Blair (aka George Orwell) , a 20th century colourful literary eccentric who sported tribal Burmese tattoos, ‘went native’ even in his own country and was descended from ‘landed gentry’ who filled exotic colonial posts including a father who worked in the Opium department of the Indian Civil Service and a wife who worked in the Censorship Department of the British Government Ministry of Information .

In spite of this background, perhaps because of it, Orwell became one of the most visionary writers of the mid twentieth century, writing dystopian novels concerning totalitarianism, propaganda and state control over individuals.  ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘1984′ are as bleak, chilling and prophetic as is Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’.

As disturbing as those ‘science fiction’ genre novels seemed at the time, never did I actually believe that I would, in my lifetime, witness firsthand the current epic degeneration and corruption of foundational Western Civilization freedoms, values and principles.

Until the collapse of the Berlin Wall, totalitarian statehood seemed restricted to Third World nations, the former USSR, Communist China, North Korea and their ilk.

Now, however, due to an incessant creep of socialist, globalist doctrine infused into otherwise democratic countries, we are witnessing an attack on Western Civilization values that is a virtual assault on a significant egalitarian system that most of us have grown up to embrace and cherish.

We witnessed, from afar, the degeneration of European nation states as they abrogated their own sovereignty by creating ‘Post National’ and ‘Super National’ institutions such as the European Union, de-legitimizing their own laws, rights and responsibilities in the process.  We watched these European nations start to lose their own national identities and culture, as an uncontrolled spread of multi-culturalism and multi-nationalism, aided and abetted by virtually uncontrolled immigration policies, has diluted the social fabric of these countries, most notably Germany, Sweden, France, Belgium, Great Britain and Sweden, to the point where police tell law abiding citizens that they literally must stay out of ‘lawless zones’ into which the police forces will not venture even to protect citizens who pay dearly for that right.

We watch as a globalist financed and backed caravan of illegal aliens approach the US southern border to demand entry and rights accorded to US citizens without following due process.  We sit by, idly, as the Canadian government allows thousands of illegal aliens into our own country, housing these illegal aliens in expensive hotels without any established limit on how much of our taxpayer Canadian resources will be expended – and to what purpose.

We sit back, comfortably and idly, as Canadian main stream news organizations propagandize, idolize and deify Canadian political leaders who are actively, and with malice aforethought, destroying the very institutions, values and principles that made Canada one of the world’s pre-eminent countries that could once hold its head high in the international community of nations.

Take some time and think about what is really happening to you, your country Canada – and your future.

Think about the consequences of restricting free speech as mandated by M-103.

Consider the possible economic collapse of the Canadian economy as is likely because of Bill C-69 and punitive Carbon Tax legislation.

Ponder the invasion of your own personal, and financial, privacy as a result of the sitting government supporting Stats Canada gaining access to your personal financial information, current and historical, without your knowledge and consent.

Reflect on the unimaginable social cost of allowing a little known and understood clause in the Paris Accord to force Canada to enter into an immigration policy known as the UN Global Compact on Migration which virtually assures that the Canadian government, and Canadians, will lose jurisdiction over our own immigration policies and goals.

Invest some time and educate yourself to the social, cultural and economic catastrophic  maelstrom that Canada is fast approaching – unless concerned, knowledgeable and principled Canadians intervene and throw a corrupt, globalist, ideologically ‘bought and paid for’ Liberal government out of power in 2019.

Then, do yourself a further favour and read, or re-read, Orwell’s ‘1984’.  Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’.  Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’.

Ask yourself, objectively, how close we really are to those chilling alternatives becoming our new Canadian reality.

You, the Canadian voter and taxpayer, may well be the last line of defense.

Think about your future, the future of Canada and the future of generations of Canadians who will depend on the decisions we collectively make.  Now.  Today.  In 2019.  Then ask yourself how many more chances are we going to be given to preserve all that we have achieved and hold sacred – the very fabric of our Canadian identity.

An Historic Opportunity — To Stop Doing Dumb Things

Today,  Peoples Party Of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier officially filed with Elections Canada to register Canada’s newest political party (I would post a link with pictures, if I knew how to do stuff like that!).  This is an historic day, and it represents an historic opportunity : an opportunity for the people of this country to one day soon elect a government that will stop doing dumb things. 

Too many of us, for far too long, have concentrated on what we think our governments ought to do , as if having everyone’s laundry lists filled and hobby-horses catered to would somehow lead to good governance.  As understandable as this approach may seem (and I have been as guilty of it as anyone else in the past), it is erroneous.  For to achieve that good and sensible balanced governance which all normal people want, avoiding harmful policies — in other words, not doing dumb things — is just as important, maybe even more important, than “doing the right things”.

Imagine then, a government that no longer practiced confiscatory taxation, but instead strove for fairness in the tax system, ensuring that no Canadian paid income tax until he or she had earned enough to support themselves and their dependents, but also making certain that hard work, ingenuity and  success were not punished ;  imagine a government that recognized that the notion of “managing the economy” is patently ridiculous, and thus refrained from all the forms of corporate welfare that have so distorted and held back the economic landscape of this country, and from promoting and subsidizing certain favoured industries at the expense of all others ; imagine a government that would vet all potential immigrants carefully, to ensure that only those who want to come here and live as Canadians, and help to make the country a wealthier, happier place, would be welcomed in, while ensuring that habitual criminals and those looking to import the cultural practices that made their home countries intolerable for so many would be politely turned away ;  imagine a government that would do everything possible to keep the Canadian Dollar strong and stable, therefore preserving the value of every Canadian’s labour, entrepreneurship, and savings,  rather than purposely devaluing it for the benefit of a well-connected few.

And imagine, if you will, a government that would only employ the Canadian Forces if there was a direct national interest in doing so, or if the lives of Canadian citizens were in jeopardy, and would never callously place our soldiers in harm’s way for the sake of making a few brownie points with the UN or NATO, or for preserving the silly notion that one can practice “peacekeeping” in places where the peace has not even been made.  

The dumb policies mentioned above — absurdly high taxes, economic micro-management, corporate welfare, out-of-control immigration and so-called Multiculturalism (AKA a recipe for civil war), currency debasement, and misuse of the military — are but a few of the practices that have cost Canadian taxpayers dearly over the past several decades.  How many billions have been squandered (after first being confiscated!), how many lives have been ruined, or even lost, because governments of the past decided, in their lack of wisdom, to go down these roads?  

It is clear, then, that avoiding dumb and counterproductive actions is vitally important, not least because it then saves resources for the truly beneficial things governments can do, such as providing transport infrastructure, keeping the civil peace, adjudicating disputes, protecting the borders, and ensuring the existence of a decent social safety net to be used by those who find themselves in dire financial circumstances through no fault of their own.  But where will Canadians find such governance?  Who can form a government which is capable of NOT engaging in stupid and counterproductive policy?

It won’t be the Liberals, that’s for sure.  Nor the NDP ; both of these are too busy thinking up new ways to restrict and regulate every facet of every Canadian’s life to bother themselves with such deep thoughts.  And the Conservative Party of Canada have lately developed an acute allergy to principles of any kind, to the point where the voter never knows where their stance is on any topic from one day to the next.   The Green Party, of course,  doesn’t bear mentioning.

No, friends, the only hope of this kind of wise, balanced governance is from the newest kid on the block, the Peoples Party of Canada.  It is growing by leaps and bounds every day, and Maxime is working hard to gather to it people of like mind to himself — people who believe in the natural liberty of all human beings, in true free enterprise, and in small, efficient government that always works for the benefit of the Common Man, and avoids doing patently dumb things.  

Like I said. . . an historic day.

On Finding the True Political Centre

Self-styled experts are fond of telling us that to be successful in politics, one must learn to be “kinda middle of the road”,  that you must be neither right nor left wing but rather a “centrist”.  This has almost become a sort of received wisdom, particularly in Canada, and politicians and their parties seem to be forever striving to be seen as the ones who are “claiming the centre ground”.  This would be admirable, and beneficial, except for one little thing.  Actually, one big thing.   The fact is, very few people  — and even fewer careerist politicians and bureaucrats —  understand what the terms “right-wing” and “left-wing” mean, and thus have no idea where the true centre lies, or what it means to be a true centrist.

Let us begin by defining the two terms placed in scare quotes above in plain language.  To put it simply,  a leftist believes in the supremacy of the State, that government is always good, always the answer to everything, and has  a role to play in most if not all aspects of the lives of the citizenry.  A rightist believes the opposite ; he distrusts all government, thinks it is at best incompetent and at worst willfully crooked, and thinks that he would be better off without it, or at least most of it.   

From this we can see that the extreme end of the left-wing spectrum is Totalitarianism, wherein the government controls the better part of the economy, strictly regulates the lives and actions of all the people, and even attempts to control the way they speak and think.   Examples of these extreme-left societies would be the old Soviet Union, Cuba under Castro, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and of course, the good old PRC.   On the opposite end of the spectrum, we can see that the extreme right-wing position is literal anarchy —  no laws, no rules or principles, just every man for himself and the best man, on a given day, wins.   There are no long-term examples of any jurisdictions that thrived in a state of anarchy, for obvious reasons.

Clearly, life under a far-left government is intolerable to any psychologically normal person.  And anarchy, while it might sound like fun on the surface, is almost always the begetter of Totalitarian states — because in the vacuum created by a lack of basic law and order, you get a situation where the nastiest sociopathic control freaks battle it out to see who will be the top dog, and the winner(s) of that contest invariably impose a harsh police state in order to consolidate their power.  Not good!

So, what would constitute the true centre, and therefore a true centrist?

A true centrist believes this :  That there must be just enough rule of law to stop or at least discourage people from harming one another physically, financially or reputationally ;  that all people should have equal rights and responsibilities before the law, and no one person or group should receive special favours, or be purposely kept down ;  that taxation, although necessary, is an evil, and should kept to its lowest possible level, regardless of what systems may be used to collect it ;  that it is possible to have a social safety net while still preserving the individual’s freedom to choose ; and that each level of government ought to confine itself to its duties as outlined in the Constitution and refrain from other activities.   The true centrist believes that lawful authority and personal liberty must be in equilibrium, and therefore compliment and enhance each other.  

But where is this true centre to be found in Canada’s political landscape?  Not the Liberal Party ; not when they are led by a man who grew up at Fidel Castro’s feet and expresses his admiration for the Communist Party of China.  Nor do the CPC qualify anymore, if they ever really did ;  they have now drifted back toward the middle-left, and have become a (prospective) patron of special interests (how things have changed since Mr. H  was pushed aside!).  The NDP, while at least honestly deluded, remain in thrall to neo-Marxists, Trotskyites and trendy activists of every stripe.  A hopeless situation for the true centrist voter, then?

Ah, not so fast!  There is hope.  Hope that this country could at last have a balanced, fiscally and morally responsible government, one that respects all Canadians, and treats them as both  equals and as adults.  That hope is called . . .  the People’s Party of Canada.  Believe it, friends :  the PPC, and Maxime Bernier, are the real thing.  And it is quite possibly the first time that a truly national political party has been founded based on the premise that the concerns and welfare of the Average Canadian are the most important concerns of a proper and just government.  

Good governance, and an increase in general freedom and prosperity, are possible.  We just have to want it, and then labour to make it so.

Who’s in?
