Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada was arrested in the town of St. Pierre Jolys, Manitoba on June 11. Robert Vaughan discusses this dramatic event, unprecedented in Canadian history, with Professor, Salim Mansur.
“We are no longer an advanced liberal democracy, that is Canada. We have rapidly, over the past 15 months, turned into some third-world country, basically an Animal Farm, a totalitarian Animal Farm where there is one set of laws for me and another set of laws for you.” ~ Salim Mansur.

“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!” That has been an increasing chant heard at ever-growing protests around the world and in Canada, where Ontario’s fascist premier Doug Ford boasts that his is the most locked down jurisdiction in North America.
Sad to say, freedom has never been on the agenda of any political party found in the federal parliament or provincial legislatures of Canada. This is remarkable, given that freedom has always been touted by each of these parties as being a fundamental value of the nation. Yet freedom always takes a back seat to their various collectivist priorities – priorities that simply cannot possibly co-exist with freedom.
Tragically, most of those chanting ‘freedom’ are not really seeking individual freedom because they do not even know what freedom is. Rather, they are desperate to escape their latest version of oppression – currently a pretended ‘viral’ epidemic created to generate fear and to justify the unjustifiable – tyranny.
Though it is true that Canada lacks principled leadership, the real weakness in the Canadian fabric is not to be found in its leaders; it is to be found in Canadians themselves who routinely dismiss supporting the rare political party or politician that would put freedom first.Continue reading »
Comments Off on 705 – Winning back our freedom—and why philosophy matters
As more and more people ‘awaken’ to the tyrannical reality of the global lockdowns, a great dilemma presents itself.
No matter how many grasp the true nature of our tyranny, or publicly protest, or civilly disobey our tyrannical laws and politicians, or challenge the courts, the sad fact is that all of Canada’s political parties in the parliaments and legislatures of the country are the source of the tyranny. Without a political option that will guarantee individual freedom on principle, our tyranny will never end.
To Canadians who want an end to lockdowns and other tyrannical rules and regulations, there are currently only two political parties in the nation opposed to them on principle.
Federally, the choice is the People’s Party of Canada, under the leadership of Maxime Bernier. And provincially in the province of Ontario, it is the Freedom Party of Ontario under the leadership of Paul McKeever.
While there are a few independents and occasional members in various parliaments who have expressed opposition to the lockdowns, their opposition has not been based on the necessary philosophical principles. Instead their concern has been over issues of ‘democratic process’ or calls for more ‘accurate’ statistics and ‘scientific’ evidence, none of which could ever justify today’s tyranny.
Given these circumstances, things may seem hopeless for those yearning to win back their freedom democratically – at the ballot box. Worse, many believe that their vote would be ‘wasted’ if they voted for a party that has no elected members and whose past vote totals have been in the single digit percentage range. Without a ‘majority’ how can such parties ever win an election?
Answer: it doesn’t take a ‘majority’ of eligible voters to elect a majority government. In fact, as illustrated by Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever in his analysis of the past ten Ontario elections, the elected parties consistently received between 18.2% to 29.7% of eligible voters, most resulting in majority governments.
Given that every other elected political party in Ontario has vowed to keep the lockdowns going indefinitely (even though they have no moral or democratic right to do so), a vote for any of them is a vote for continued tyranny.
Polls are now suggesting that as many as 20% of Ontarians want their freedom back, a percentage that becomes politically significant in light of the reality of past electoral results. Unfortunately this minority is still reluctant to vote for its convictions, blinded by political myths and unaware of how easily circumstances could be reversed.
As we have demonstrated many times in the past, the political world is and has always been ruled by minorities. ‘Majorities’ always follow, they never lead.
Tyranny will never end in our society until a significant minority philosophically commits to a real political option that is always Just Right – freedom.

Comments Off on 702 – UNDRIP and the indigenous question | Ron Vaillant
The sovereignty of nations is globally under attack, ironically by a group called the United Nations. The attacks are disguised in a myriad of ways, one of the lesser-known being a scheme known as UNDRIP: the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Despite its name, UNDRIP is not about addressing ‘indigenous’ concerns, but about a huge land grab that will affect every resident in Canada. Having conducted his own investigation into UNDRIP, our guest Ron Vaillant was alarmed to discover that there is no definition of ‘indigenous’ in the UN declaration, a curious omission given that the entire document is predicated on actions based on protecting ‘indigenous rights.’
He is now sounding his own alarm about Canada’s Bill C-15 and the 46 Articles of UNDRIP broadly supported by Canadian politicians in upcoming parliamentary votes.
In the inevitable confusion that abounds when essential and fundamental terms are left undefined, it is difficult to see the truth behind the cloud of distractions obscuring our view. It is an inconvenient truth that any government policies based on ‘indigenous rights’ are policies based on the collectivist principle of race and racism.
The proper grounds on which to base land claim settlements rights and governance is the principle of individual rights. It is perpetually Just Right that each individual be accorded freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of association, and the private property rights necessary in the exercise of such freedoms.

“History is made by minorities – or, more precisely, history is made by intellectual movements, which are created by minorities. Who belongs to these minorities? Anyone who is able and willing to actively concern himself with intellectual issues.” – Ayn Rand
Along with their global counterparts, Canadian politicians have become willing collaborators in a plan to establish global fascism. Leading the charge is Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, an avowed admirer of totalitarian government. As a globalist himself, Trudeau does not represent Canadians but instead represents a small group of evil individuals who have made no secret of their plans to destroy the West and all Western values.
Canadians are reliving a very familiar political pattern in history, not unlike that of the Vichy government in France during the last world war. Then, as now, the greatest weapon threatening the fascist German government was freedom of speech – and the power of the ideas being spread by those in the resistance.
“The battle of human history is fought and determined by those who are predominantly consistent, those who, for good or evil, are committed to and motivated by their chosen psycho-epistemology and its corollary view of existence,” observed Ayn Rand. Continue reading »
Comments Off on 698 – Speaking conservatively about conservatives and freedom | Salim Mansur
The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) is nowhere to be seen on the freedom front. Yet, freedom-loving conservatives repeatedly vote for – and are routinely disappointed by – this party that has ever moved Leftward and is now virtually indistinguishable from the Liberal Party of Canada.
“Are conservatives stupid?” That’s just one of the uncomfortable questions fielded by our ‘conservative’ guest Salim Mansur, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Western Ontario.
At a time when the coronavirus tyranny continues unabated, massive protests against lockdowns and other controls on personal association similarly continue unabated. But these protests are being directed against the very politicians and political parties keeping everyone locked down – namely, every party in parliament.
Having no effective representation on the political front, the voices of freedom may be heard, but not heeded, and are indeed condemned. As the official opposition in Canada, the CPC has offered no opposition to the Liberal fascist agenda, despite the party’s name. And with the word ‘conservative’ in the party name, who can blame unsuspecting conservative initiates from voting for ‘their’ party? Continue reading »
In the political polarity of Left and Right, the Left represents a condition of tyranny and collectivism while the Right represents the condition of freedom and individualism.
It is tragic that so many who support freedom and individualism recoil from being labeled ‘Right,’ or otherwise avoid any political label entirely. It is tragic because such people have handed an epistemological victory to the Left, one that makes it nearly impossible to politically move in the Right direction – towards freedom instead of away from it.
Compounding the tragedy is the reason why most people are unaware of the correct Left-Right polarity as described above. There is a clear history demonstrating that it was those on the Left who contrived the false communism-fascism polarity of Left and Right. They succeeded in having this model taught in schools where they could indoctrinate people to believe that the political ‘spectrum’ places communism on the Left and fascism on the Right. But this is not so, and to believe so has tragic consequences for anyone who values freedom.
Why? Because missing from the Left’s political ‘spectrum’ model is any place for freedom and individualism, two political ideals diametrically opposed to both communism and fascism. The ‘spectrum’ model also creates the illusion of an imaginary ‘center’ or ‘middle of the road’ where one must be positioned to be at the greatest distance from each ‘extreme.’Continue reading »
