The Second Highest Court in the land has spoken . . . And it’s time to FIGHT-BACK:
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IN CANADA IS CONDITIONAL UPON WHAT THE FRENCH MINORITY OUTSIDE OF ETHNOCENTRIC QUEBEC DEEMS TO BE ACCEPTABLE.
I have been embroiled in a battle over whether or not Freedom of Expression does indeed exist in Canada for EVERYONE, or whether that Freedom is open to interpretation by minority French language tyrants, self-serving sellout politicians, and ACTIVIST JUDGES . . . have learned by Judicial fiat – FREEDOM of Expression in Canada is a ONE WAY STREET.
I will deal with TYRANNY of the MINORITY, since . . . until we tell them where to get-off, they will never stop their constant bitching and demands for privileges and rights above and beyond what is enjoyed by the majority.
And I will DEAL with the politicians in a way that is just not done in Canada.
But . . . What has become critical in Canada, just like it is in the USA; is what we can do about Activist Judges who make the laws opposed to protecting them?
The beauty of a Constitution – or in this specific case . . . Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms . . . is that it should be an inviolable Pledge that makes Canada as FREE as possible, with the LEAST amount of government intrusion imaginable.
BUT THIS ISN’T THE CASE . . . IN FACT – IT IS TO THE CONTRARY.
Like most Democracies, where politicians and bureaucrats work overtime just to create laws, regulations and intrusions into the lives of the people who pay them, do so just because they can – and MORE so, because they have to justify their bloated salaries, perks, lack of real work, and pensions – Canada is no different.
As if a bloated and INTRUSIVE government isn’t bad enough, it is what they will do or say for votes – that is way over the top.
THE BIG LIE . . .
CANADA IS A BILINGUAL COUNTRY – WHEN IN TRUTH IT IS NOT!
Some Quick Statistics:
1 – Canada’s Population 34,000,000.
English Speakers 80% . . . French Speakers 20%
2 – Ontario’s Population 13,000,000
French Speakers 4%
3 – Quebec Population 8,000,0000
French Speakers 80%
French Speakers in all of Canada EXCLUDING Quebec . . . that does not consider itself Canadian – LESS THAN 3%.
Canada is a country where the mass of people who consider themselves to be French, live almost entirely in the ethnocentric separatist province of Quebec, that through gutless federal political appeasement, it has been recognized by Canada’s Parliament as a NATION within Canada, where the UNRESTRICTED use of the English language is AGAINST the law.
Remember what I just wrote:
IN QUEBEC . . .
THE UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS AGAINST THE LAW where almost 20% of the people do not consider themselves to be French.
How did it come to pass, that in a country such as Canada, where a Constitution and a Charter of Rights and Freedoms is in place to PROTECT & GUARANTEE Freedoms, such as Freedom of Expression . . . that the UNRESTRICTED use of the English Language could possibly become ILLEGAL anywhere?
It came to pass for many reasons, BUT FOR THREE MORE THAN ANY.
1 – The politicians SOLD-OUT all of their principles, if indeed they ever had any, just to win votes. They went along with racist and coercive French language laws, so as to not upset French language and cultural BIGOTS who might otherwise not vote for them.
2 – The English-speaking minority within Quebec (a bit less than 20%), INCLUDING the English Language Media, went along with being under the cultural thumb of French BULLIES for two reasons:
a . . . Because the English speakers didn’t want to be seen to be anti-French.
b . . . Because the English community leaders were elitist cowards who placed more value on appeasement than upon Freedom.
3 – The LEFTIST Courts saw their role in defending Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms as being interpretive, instead of them being the ultimate Gate-Keepers to all the Freedoms.
As a result of political dishonesty, English community cowardice, and Judicial ACTIVISM, Canada is a severely divided country existing under a MYTH – that it is bilingual.
In 100% . . . absolute . . . incontrovertible TRUTH . . . the VAST majority of French Quebecers see themselves as Quebecois before being Canadian.
They also see Canada as a cookie jar, where they expect and DEMAND that English speakers throughout the other nine Provinces and three Territories feed their extreme LEFTIST appetite as if it is somehow coming to them.
But that’s the way it has been in Quebec from the very beginning of Confederation since 1867.
Quebec is the Province of my birth, and the birth of my parents, that I left in the year 2000, to live in the English Province of Ontario, where ONLY 4% of the population consider themselves to be French.
So . . . How does it happen that in the Province of Ontario, where the population is 96% English, and just about 100% English speaking, that the UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE BECOMES ILLEGAL?
You read that RIGHT – In English Ontario . . .
THE UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS ILLEGAL!
AND HERE’S HOW IT HAPPENED . . . Several communities in Ontario, which are relatively near to Ottawa, where there are significant numbers of French residents amongst English Ontarians, coerced the towns through ethnocentric threats such as – not passing a FORCED bilingual commercial sign bylaw is anti-French and RACIST.
AND NO ONE WANTS TO BE LABELED A RACIST OF ANY KIND.
To win the passage of these ANTI-ENGLISH bylaws, all that was needed were: a compliant and ignorant English majority, a MUTE media, self-serving gutless politicians, and an Activist FRENCH/BILINGUAL Judiciary that made it LEGAL to OBLITERATE the section of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (section 2b) that was created to GUARANTEE Freedom of Expression by FORCING people to use the language of OTHERS.
As of June 2012, a unanimous Ontario Court of Appeal decision ruled that:
Even though FORCED bilingual signs violate Constitutional Guarantees for Freedom of Expression, the Judges overruled the Charter of Rights and Freedoms because in their minds . . . IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
I’m going to leave you with this:
1 – At the demand of the “OTHER” side, all the Judges who heard the case had to be bilingual, which means one of two things: That the Judges are either French who can speak English, or English with a PROCLIVITY towards the French.
Either way . . . I am quite certain that we never had a chance in Court, since the deck was stacked against us from the very beginning.
AT GREAT FINANCIAL COST . . . WE ARE GOING THE DISTANCE:
We have made arrangements to Appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, which I have no great faith in, since the Supreme Court has already demonstrated many times over, that they too do not have the gravitas to stand in defense of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, above and beyond all specious French DEMANDS.
I’ve had ENOUGH . . . And after years of playing DEFENSE, naively expecting the justice system to work as it should, I will MUCH sooner rather than later be taking the FIGHT to the Ethnocentric French Activists, to the Courts, AND MOSTLY TO THE POLITICIANS.
I am more than prepared to stir the pot, take the flack, the threats, and the insults that will come my way because I am determined to win back what should have NEVER been taken from me and the majority of English Canadians.
EITHER WE FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOMS . . . OR WE DON’T DESERVE TO HAVE THEM.
I will outline my battle-plan within the next few editorials, as the artwork and media are being developed and produced to carry us into battle.
But I will tell you all this – This is not a battle I can fight alone. Nor do I intend to.
