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.

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.

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.

NAFTA Aftermath – Autopsy

Canada sent a part time drama teacher and a second string journalist to the NAFTA table to negotiate Canada’s short to medium term economic future with its largest trading partner.

The result was a deal that was inevitable and predictable – incredibly badly mishandled by a part time drama teacher and a second string journalist.  It was to be expected.

After months of Trump bashing, false bravado and a Santa Claus wishlist of conditions that were never going to be achievable in an adult, mature, pragmatic world, Trudeau and Freeland were sent home from Washington DC last week to moan, complain and commiserate with their sympathetic CBC and media (I don’t consider CBC legitimate media, BTW) sycophants.

With those two lightweight impediments safely out of the way, Trump, Robert Lighthizer and their team took the junior varsity Canadian contingent to school on negotiating and winning concessions.

To be fair, the US was going to gain ground on Canada – even if Canada would have sent reasonably competent negotiators.  Facts are facts.  Realities cannot be ignored.

Canada relies on the US for more than 20% of our economic output.

The US relies on Canada for less than 2% of its economic output.

Canada’s GDP growth rate as at July 2018 is 0.7%.

USA’s growth rate as at July 2018 is 4.2%. (6 times the Canadian rate)

Canada is increasing regulations and government interference in economic investment, both from Canadian and foreign sources.  Bill C-69 which allows the Environment Minister a veto is a prime example.

The US is systematically deregulating under Trump.  His promise that two (2) regulations will be eliminated for every new regulation implemented was incredibly conservative.  In fact, in 2017 twenty two (22) deregulatory actions were issued for every one (1) new regulation.

Canada’s exports of oil and petroleum products has almost flatlined since 2010 Petroleum exports were $94 Billion in 2010.  Petroleum exports were $97 Billion in 2017.

US exports of oil and petroleum products has more than doubled since 2010.

In 2015, the US was the 2nd ranked energy producer at 15%.  Canada was the 6th ranked energy producer at 3%.

The US accounted for 97% of Canadian energy exports in 2017NOT A TYPO.  97%.  The source for most of this information is Natural Resources Canada Government of Canada, easily confirmed on the Internet.

Even worse for Canadians, NAFTA regulation Article 605 effectively gave control over the Canadian energy resources to the US.  One of the immediate, long lasting results was that West Canada Select oil averaged $48.55 per barrel in August 2018 whereas West Texas Intermediate (equivalent) averaged $68.06 per barrel in August, 2018.  

The Canadian discount to world market price is a staggering 30%, rounded off.  This discount has been a historic reality.

I could add more fuel to the fire but any cogent, astute, thinking Canadian can see where this analysis is heading.

Canada is highly reliant on the US for our economic well-being – and our economic future, whether we like it or not.  In fact, the more the Canadian government obstructs the expansion of distribution networks to facilitate an expanded international market for our products and our resources, the worse the crisis is becoming. 

What the Canadian government, led by Trudeau and Freeland, proposed to the US in negotiations was ridiculous in the extreme. 

A series of ‘Core Objectives’ was published by Chrystia Freeland on August 14, 2017, most of which were ‘dead in the water’ to any astute, savvy analyst.

The governing Liberals wanted to incorporate new gender based standards into an international trade agreement. 

The governing Liberals wanted to incorporate new Environmental and Climate Change wording.

The self-same delusional Liberals wanted to add an ‘Indigenous Chapter’ into the revised NAFTA agreement.

The governing Liberals wanted to ensure the continuation of Supply Management policies.

There are almost ten more self-serving impossible demands that Trudeau and Freeland wanted to incorporate into a new international trade agreement with the US and Mexico.

It is obvious to any intelligent, practical observer that none of these fantasies would ever find their way into a new trade agreement – yet Trudeau’s government (with the complicit obtuse support of a fawning Canadian media) continued to press forward – with the anticipated disastrous consequences.

Trudeau and Freeland even threw more fuel on the fire by denigrating Trump, the success of the US economic transformation and totally misreading the effect of the actual election of Trump in 2016 (by a US electorate fed up with its own previous incompetent, globalist government championed by Obama).

While we will save the impact of changes in the new USMCA negotiated agreement for a future analysis, given that the US Congress must still provide its assent to the new agreement, the fact remains that Canadians should be grateful that the US did not punish the naive, globalist self-serving proselytizing Liberals with an even more one-sided punitive agreement.

Canada sent a team of incompetent ideologues to the negotiation table with the United States.  Mexico was astute enough to recognize the economic danger that loomed on the horizon if a favourable deal with the ever-strengthening US economy was not accomplished quickly – posthaste.  Resultantly, Mexico negotiated a bilateral deal with the US whereby its own national interests would be protected, Canada notwithstanding.

By comparison, an inept, short-sighted ‘post-national’ Trudeau sat on the sidelines, buoyed up by adoring sycophants, including the Canadian Main Stream Media, who collectively truly had, and have, no clue concerning the precarious position that Canada is currently in as a result of the gross negligence and mishandling of the engines of the Canadian economy.

The collective well-being and prosperity of Canada hangs in the balance and we are currently governed by a self-serving elite that neither knows, nor cares, about the damage that the governing Liberal Party is doing to our economic future.

Alarmingly, under the leadership of an equally naive and compromised Andrew Scheer, the political posturing of the Conservative Party of Canada may well have made a bad situation even worse.  A stubborn commitment to Supply Management, already a millstone around the necks of almost all Canadians, would have almost certainly blown up any last chance that the USMCA (formerly NAFTA) deal would ever consummate for the benefit of Canada – and Canadians.

In hindsight, Canadians should consider ourselves lucky that the damage done was not even worse.  Canada signed an 11th hour deal under extreme duress.  Canada, and Canadians, are fortunate that Trump’s negotiating team did not impose even more conditions that would have penalized Canada over time.

The Liberals under Trudeau, and the Conservative Party of Canada under Scheer, have proven themselves to be incapable of governing Canada in a fiscally responsible and accountable mannerThe NDP are so far removed from economic reality that the NDP does not even deserve a place in a discussion concerning fiscally responsible government.

While the CBC and the media sycophants are spinning this ineptly handled agreement of national importance as a ‘success’ for Trudeau and the Liberals, astute concerned Canadians of all backgrounds and financial circumstances are increasingly uneasy with the mounting evidence.

Canada is ‘out of step’ with current economic realities.  The governing Liberals are practicing divisive identity politics inside Canada – and were shot down in flames at the USMCA negotiations when they attempted to impose these unsupportable, unsustainable globalist values on other sovereign nations.

Instead of learning from the error of their ways, I fully anticipate that the Liberals, the CPC and the fawning Canadian leftist media will ramp up their rhetoric – pushing Canada even further into a socialist landscape which cannot help but thrust Canada into a possible economic collapse.

Where, on the horizon, should Canadians look for a ray of hope?

I suggest that you look no further than Maxime Bernier and the People’s Party of Canada.  Mr. Bernier was the ONLY Member of Parliament who had the courage and the conviction to bring the NAFTA issue to the table in the House of Commons with a reasoned, responsible and accountable solution – that would have served Canada well in the negotiations with the US.

All other Members of Parliament voted against the common sense solutions provided by Mr. Bernier that may well have improved Canada’s bargaining position – and thereby Canada’s economic well-being and future prospects for all Canadians.

Let that sink in while you contemplate your election options going forward into 2019.

What We Want from the PPC

A new political party at the federal level does not ‘just happen’.  

There must be discernible, identifiable and tangible reasons why thousands of concerned, politically active citizens choose to reject established institutions.

In the words of my very astute (in so many ways) partner, ‘We did not leave the Conservative Party of Canada.  The Conservative Party of Canada left us”.

Membership in a political party, perhaps support for any movement, should require a personal ‘buy in’, a belief that there is congruence between the goals and objectives of the organization – and the goals and objectives of the individual.  Why would I support a political party that doesn’t represent the values, principles and beliefs that I personally consider important?  Most importantly, why would I be willing to ‘go to war’ for any entity which I do not believe is fighting the same battles, for the same reasons, to achieve the same outcomes?

That, I believe, is the essence of the considerable and indisputable support for Maxime Bernier – and the People’s Party of Canada, a political alternative that is still in its transformative evolution.

In no particular order of importance, here are some of the issues for which I am personally willing to ‘go to war’ alongside our battle commander Maxime Bernier:

Let advertisers and/or subscriptions pay for CBC propaganda (and the salaries of the taxpayer subsidized propagandists who spin the propaganda for the Liberals).  Taxpayer support for CBC must end.

Create a ‘merit based’, controlled/vetted immigration system whereby immigrants demonstrate that they actually want to be ‘Canadians’ and contribute positively and productively to Canadian society – and the Canadian economy.

Stop the unjustified/unsupportable practice of misusing Canadian taxpayer dollars to fund political initiatives/special interest groups in other countries i.e. How can anyone justify Canada contributing $20 Million to the Clinton Foundation in 2017?

End Supply Management.  There is no credible economic model that supports, circumstance that warrants, or benefit to Canadian consumers that derives from the unsustainable, unsupportable government intervention in three (3) special interest groups, dairy, poultry and egg producers.  If NAFTA negotiations fail primarily because of the mainstream political support for the dairy, poultry and egg lobbies, Canadians will be penalized by the loss of readily accessible markets to our largest trading partner.

Re-establish the sovereignty of the Legislative branch of government that has been usurped by the Judicial branch of government.  No political party has the courage to invoke the ‘notwithstanding clause’ and assert the democratically vested right, as established by the votes of Canadian citizens, whenever legislation is struck down by a an unacceptably politically active Judiciary.

Assert the Constitutional authority of the Federal Government when, and as, required.  i.e. Pipeline approval and the distribution of Canada’s natural resources is a federal responsibility.  Any challenges by provinces or a politically active judiciary should be immediately turned aside – in the national interest.  

Assert the universality of Canadian law, rights, responsibilities and jurisprudence.  There should not be different legal interpretations, divergent requirements, even differing sentencing for criminals. i.e. Immigrants being ‘excused’ for not knowing or adhering to the Canadian Criminal Code.  Abhorrently and inexplicably, the confessed first degree murderer of an innocent 8 year old child in 2009 is sent to an ‘Aboriginal Healing Lodge’ instead of remaining in prison to serve out the rest of her sentence. London Free Press September 28, 2018

Cease the interference by the Federal Government in the free market and adopt a strict laissez faire economic policy.  Bombardier has received almost $5 Billion in federal and Quebec government support (Globe and Mail, March 22, 2018) and Toyota Canada received $110 Million in 2018 to assist with the expansion of Toyota in Canada, as examples.  These unfair, special interest subsidies into specific government handpicked industries and companies is not in the best interests of all Canadians.  

Eliminate the National Carbon Tax.  This is an arbitrary tax that will cost Canadians billions of dollars without any likely environmental benefit – except for those on the government gravy train.

Be honest and forthright with Canadians concerning actual events on the ground in Canada.  The recent terrorist Danforth shooting (acknowledged by ISIS as its premier terrorist incident worldwide thus far in 2018) is an example of how the current Liberal government lies, obfuscates and suppresses information that Canadians deserve to know.  The government is accountable to the voters – not the reverse.

Provide a fair and equitable framework for all Canadians concerning Aboriginal rights, vetos and governance.  No one special interest group can have dominance over all of Canada because of a historical claim that has long since lost its validity.  Canada has paid compensation and restitution for more than a century.  It is now time for aboriginal groups to become productive, equal citizens in the Canadian federation –  for better or worse.

Eliminate the federal control over Health Care funding that is constitutionally the responsibility of the provinces.  Let the provinces decide on their own Health Care models and practices. Do not legislate against private options for Canada.   

Renegotiate the Federal Equalization Payments model so that some Canadian provinces do no pay unfairly for political and social decisions made in other provinces.  Without a level playing field, the future of the Canadian federation is at serious jeopardy.

Create a fair, sustainable taxation system that is simple and universally based, similar to that which has recently been introduced in the US.  Basic individual tax rates should be reduced and personal exemptions increased. I am hesitant to apply hard numbers at this time recognizing that any reduction in income must be offset by reductions in expenditures – and I don’t know how long it is going to take to right the ship.

Reduce corporate taxes to a flat 10%.  If Canada does not create a favourable economic, sustainable and absolute environment for business investment, the current drain of Canadian and foreign investment will continue – leading possibly to an impending recession.  Canada is the tail trying to wag the dog.  The US has created a strong, sustainable economic investment climate and Canada will languish and fall hopelessly behind if we do not accept current economic realities.

Reduce the size of government.  Enough said. 

Deregulate.  Again, enough said.  

Balance the budget.  Once again, enough said. 

Straight talk.  Enough of political correctness.  Call it like it is. 

Read Max Bernier’s vision for The People’s Party of Canada on his own website and referenced on The People’s Party of Canada website.  Many, if not all, of the above policy ideas are identified and discussed.

There are a large, and growing, number of Canadians who are looking for, demanding, significant changes in the Canadian federal government actions and policies.  The People’s Party of Canada is the vehicle for the necessary changes.

Please turn this article into a ‘Hobo’s Stew’ by contributing your own thoughts and ideas.  We will bring them forward at a constituency, province and national level, as appropriate when The People’s Party of Canada convenes its initial policy convention.

The Power of Vox Populi

The People’s Party of CanadaParti Populaire du Canadapeoplespartyofcanada.ca

Within hours, the phenomenon that is the People’s Party of Canada became  a viable, credible, ELECTABLE alternative for Canadian voters in the upcoming 2019 Canadian federal election.  Within literally minutes of the formal announcement by Maxime Bernier, visionary founder, the Twitter universe exploded with tweets from all regions within Canada, committing to membership in the fledgling political party.

Not surprisingly, the expressions of support were accompanied by a formidable number of financial contributions that will almost certainly move the needle from the announced $140,000 in the bank at inception to a potential multiple millions of dollars by the end of the very first weekend.  (A goodly number of those contributions will certainly come from former Conservative Party of Canada members who are moving their support, in significant numbers, to the People’s Party of Canada).

Proof?  I was sitting in front of the fireplace and watching the tremendous interest being expressed through continuous chimes on my iPad announcing that another member had joined – and that another financial contribution had been provided in accompaniment.  My own credit card took a very worthy and necessary hit this morning – as did my partner’s.

Why necessary?  

Because the creation of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) provides the ‘People’s Voice’, Vox Populi, that has been a vacuum in Canadian politics (and elsewhere) for a significant number of years.

The established political parties will rail against, minimize, denigrate and otherwise attempt to smear the formation of, and the intentions of, the People’s Party of Canada and its founder.  The problem is that those efforts will fail – just as the efforts to prevent the very creation of the PPC itself, failed.

The Reason?

Unlike the sycophants of the Liberal Party of Canada, the NDP and other left leaning political parties who succeed because of the ‘hive mentality’ of their membership base, the new and future members of the People’s Party of Canada have a pent up appetite to actually be able to engage, personally interact, with the Canadian political system.  The tired, predictable establishment parties pay lip service to the accountability to members – but fall woefully short in actually adhering to that fundamental principle of democracy.

The leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada proved to its own members that it was no different – and no better.  There is credible, irrefutable evidence that Andrew Scheer and the CPC leadership deliberately kept certain agenda items ‘off the table’ at the recent Halifax Policy Convention. 

As a delegate expressed personally to me after that convention, he spent thousands of dollars of his own money to travel coast to coast in Canada to have a voice in the decision making process.  Instead he, along with all other attending CPC members, were spoon fed the issues that would be ‘allowed’ to be discussed and with the amazing (and equally alarming) caveat that Andrew Scheer and the CPC National Committee would not be bound by any decisions that were supported by a majority of the attending member representatives.

Is it any surprise that Maxime Bernier announced his resignation from the Conservative Party of Canada at the very outset of the Halifax convention – or that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of CPC members tendered their resignation shortly thereafter (including me)?

The facts are self-evident.  Democracy and the underlying principles of democracy have been pushed aside in most existing political parties as those parties have become vehicles for special interest groups -whether those groups be corporate, societal, racial, global or otherwise.  In the minds and actions of almost all existing political parties, members (and in fact Canadians) are not equal – and are not treated equally.

The notion of ‘political correctness’ has allowed incredible, unacceptable abuses of the political system and Canadian voters have been acquiescent enablers, by default.  No one has previously had the courage and the conviction to stand up to the misinformation and ‘Fake News’ provided by a complicit, partisan Main Stream Media.

No current political leader has the courage and the conviction to speak out concerning the inequities being introduced into the Canadian milieu.  We have a current Prime Minister who, in fact, deliberately introduces divisive politics into his daily discussion with full malice aforethought.  In the fallacious name of ‘diversity’, he creates cabinets not populated by the best qualified, but through a meticulous, albeit ridiculous, process of ensuring gender, ethnicity, cultural and ‘who knows what else’ diversity.  The result?  Proven, ongoing missteps, blunders, idiotic decisions and policies that have pushed Canada to the edge of an economic and societal cliff – with a very long, protracted fall to the bottom.

Canada has an official ‘Leader of the Opposition’ that doesn’t even know the requirements of his own job – or his necessary and vital role in the Canadian parliamentary process by holding the sitting government to account.  In his insecure desire to be a ‘people pleaser’ and accommodate all points of view, Mr. Scheer has fallen into the age old trap.  If you pretend to be all things to all people, you ultimately become virtually nothing to anyone.  Your job, Mr. Scheer, is to hold the government to account – not to agree with them when that government is making horrific, unsupportable decisions and failing badly on certain fronts, including NAFTA, the Energy Sector, Immigration and a host of others.

In their lemminglike pursuit of power, virtually all current federal political party leaders are rushing their parties, Canadians and the Canadian identity itself closer to the cliff.  Voters, most voters, are not stupid and we will not allow such destructive behaviour to continue – not if there is a viable alternative.

Enter Maxime Bernier, the man who should have become the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, were it not for a convoluted, still disputed and somewhat irregular voting procedure at the last CPC leadership convention.

In hindsight, the fact that Mr. Bernier was denied that leadership role within the CPC may be, in fact, the best thing that could have happened to Canada – and for Canadian voters. 

There is a tremendous amount of inertia that must be overcome within an existing political party in order to make meaningful changes.  There is too much political baggage and there are too many established special interest groups that have seized control over various aspects of the status quo.

It is, in fact, better to sometimes start afresh.

Maxime Bernier today has formally introduced the People’s Party of Canada to the electorate in Canada.  This new party has full intentions of becoming a viable, electable political force in time to make a tremendous difference prior to the upcoming 2019 federal election in Canada.

The groundswell of energy and support for this new movement is palpable and growing.  

Mr. Bernier is the perfect leader for this initiative as his own personal values and principles have remained unwavering throughout a significant period of time.  Mr. Bernier has shown that he has the courage to challenge conventional wisdom (when he can prove it wrong), the conviction to follow his principles and debate them in the public forum – and to challenge the indoctrinated partisan Main Stream Media who are destined to become as big an enemy to the People’s Party of Canada as are the insecure leaders of the Liberals, the NDP and the Conservative Party of Canada.

I believe Mr. Bernier will have the personal integrity, the courage, the conviction and the resolve to publicly state that ‘What is politically correct is, in fact, what is best for ALL Canadians, on balance‘.  

The individuals I have already talked to, and corresponded with, that have either joined or expressed interest in the People’s Party of Canada, are energized, committed and resolved – to a degree I have not seen previously roaming the Canadian political landscape. To an individual, these proud Canadians believe that we collectively have found a new home – and a new voice.

Without any central direction or input, I am aware of multiple ‘grass roots’ initiatives that have already been planned and implemented.  Through the utilization of social media, including Facebook (treat with extreme caution and use at your own risk), Twitter, Instagram and other vehicles, the message can be shared quickly and without a prejudicial filter.

For those who want a quick primer on how to engage safely and efficiently using social media, I have written a guide entitled 21st Century Media Boot Camp‘ that will give you some ideas and strategies concerning how to proceed with getting the message out quickly and at minimal expense.  Send an email to frogfogmedia@gmail.com for a copy that will be dispatched to you in PDF form for your immediate download.

A movement was created today that has incredible impetus – with an unquestionable opportunity to make a genuine, positive difference to how Canadians, and Canada itself, proceeds as we navigate hostile, uncharted waters fraught with dangers that are becoming ever more apparent.

People’s Party of Canada is the most positive development I have seen in a number of years and gives me hope that there is, indeed, still a chance to make a difference.

Help make that difference by going to the peoplespartyofcanada.ca website.  Listen to YouTube interviews with Maxime Bernier.  Read the proposed policy points and reach out to fellow concerned Canadians to help make this new political movement a vital, viable and electable alternative for Canadians in time for the 2019 federal election – and thereafter.
