digital charter

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement that he would introduce a ‘Digital Charter’ to protect Canadians from on line ‘disinformation’ was a chilling indictment of his government’s ideology and political objectives.

Unable to control the public narrative in his favor as he heads into a federal election, Trudeau has sought to undermine the very foundation of liberal democracy by threatening to impose “meaningful financial consequences” on social media platforms that do not censor, ‘deplatform,’ or otherwise “counter disinformation” on their sites.

To call this unconscionable would be an understatement. But given the identity politics that has defined Trudeau’s government as one obsessed with categorizing the nation’s citizens on the basis of race, color, sex, language, heritage, gender, and religion, his agenda deserves to be called that and more. After all, maintaining falsehoods requires censorship; truth requires an environment of freedom of speech. Continue reading »

With the introduction of Canada’s “Digital Charter” it is as if Justin Trudeau has taken a page out of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four— committing yet another assault on our freedoms.

Placing partisan unionists on the panel to select which Liberal-friendly media outlet should receive his bribe money to keep conservative voices from being expressed is taking a page from Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals.

In all his actions Justin Trudeau is making himself out to be a tyrant in the style of the Chinese communists which he so admires.

Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University makes a plea to stop this full-frontal onslaught of our freedoms before it is too late and we lose that one freedom which makes all our other freedoms possible: our freedom of speech.

609 – Socialized health care’s sacred immorality

In the United States, Medicare costs (along with the cost of health care services generally) continue to rise to unsustainable levels. As patient satisfaction levels decline, many Americans have been led to call for a Canadian-style ‘universal’ health care system. Meanwhile in Canada, and unknown to most Americans, health care waiting lists continue to grow, as more and more Canadians find themselves unable to get the basic care they need.

While each country boasts excellent health care services, broad accessibility to these services has become another matter entirely. Common to both countries are various prohibitions of the provision of medical services on a truly free market, which guarantees cost escalation. As more people find it difficult to afford their basic health care needs, politicians have seized upon the problem they caused by offering them a means to access those services without incurring a direct personal cost – socialized health care.

In the perpetual controversy over socialized health care, confusion reigns supreme, partially due to the varying testimonials of patients within a given system. Some are quite happy with the medical services they receive, while most appear less so. Another reason has to do with the fact that at any given point in time, only a minority of people find themselves forced to experience their health care systems directly, while the vast majority has no direct knowledge of the crisis looming at their doorsteps.

“Dangerous” – Paul Joseph Watson, Milo, Laura Loomer, and Alex Jones (again) are some of the latest victims of the big tech purge of “far-right” voices. Facebook and its sister site Instagram deleted their accounts in a coordinated hit, ironically on the eve of Press Freedom Day. What were they guilty of? Of being “dangerous.”

Voices that do not adhere to the current orthodoxy are increasingly being silenced. Big tech companies are clinging to the blurred lines between platform and publisher in order to have their cake and eat it too.

Join Danielle and Robert as they discuss the ramifications of the current state of internet censorship.

University of Chicago history professor, Rachel Fulton Brown has been criticized and even harassed for a blog post she published on June 5, 2015 titled “Three Cheers for White Men.” (https://tinyurl.com/yyu6a4sq)

Her post explained that “white men,” the racist and inflammatory term used by Leftists to denote — in a derogatory way — Western culture, were responsible for such things as chivalry, women’s rights, and free speech.

We spoke with Professor Brown at a meeting of the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship at Western University in London, Ontario on May 4th, 2019.

Compelled speech at the Law Society of Ontario – An interview with Bruce Pardy and Lisa Bildy

All lawyers and paralegals play a vital role in Accelerating Culture Shift, one of 5 strategies adopted by the Law Society to address the barriers faced by racialized licensees.

As part of this strategy you are required to create and abide by an individual Statement of Principles that acknowledges your obligation to promote equality, diversity and inclusion generally, and in your behaviour towards colleagues, employees, clients and the public.

This was the direction from the Law Society of Ontario to its membership in 2017. The obvious political ideology at play here offended many Ontario lawyers and some of them banded together to create “StopSOP” (Stop the Statement of Principles).

In April 2019 they fielded a slate of 22 Bencher candidates who stood for election to the society’s Convocation with the entire slate being elected.

Leading the revolt against compelled speech and in favour of non-partisan lawyers were Law Society members Lisa Bildy, StopSOP Campaign Chair and Bruce Pardy professor of law at Queen’s University.

Robert Vaughan interviewed Bruce and Lisa while attending the Society For Academic Freedom and Scholarship’s AGM at Western University in London, Ontario.

A tax on “carbon” is a tax on life. Carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant, but according to the ruling class, the fact that we – by the very act of breathing – produce it, effectively makes US pollution.

Never mind that carbon dioxide is plant food and is essential to life on this planet, we must pay penance for our very existence to the elites that jet around the world expounding upon the dangers of global cooling, er, global warming, um. . . wait (I’ve got it now): “climate change”.

Join Danielle and Robert as they explore yet another example of “rules for thee and not for me” and the propaganda surrounding the so-called threat of CO2 to the planet.
