WHAT POWER ON EARTH CAN KILL FREEDOM?
I’ve Always Wondered For As Long As I Can Remember . . . What Force On Earth Can Kill Freedom?
AMERICA’S CONSTITUTION IS THE LAST GUARDIAN AT THE GATE & FALTERING:
In A Very Niggling Way, Even as a Very Young Man, I Always Came Back to our So-Called Canadian Democracy, as the Only Culprit Possible of Destroying the Freedoms we Cherish in Canada, which Brought Me to My Love & Admiration for the Values of the American Constitution.
I’VE WANTED TO WRITE THIS EDITORIAL FOR YEARS . . . THE TIME HAS COME:
I’ve Always Wondered . . . Because of our Canadian Democracy, What Would Stop A Government In Power From Passing Laws That Would Take Away Our Freedoms? The Answer – Simply Stated . . . Would Be A United States Of America Style Constitution & Bill Of Rights.
HOW STABLE IS THE US CONSTITUTION?
The Problem Goes All The Way Back To 1982, when the Father of Justin Trudeau, then Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau Passed the Law that Affirmed his Canadian Charter Of Rights & Freedoms, to Become our Canadian Constitution & Bill of Rights, which Ceded the Freedoms of the Canadian People to the Hands of Piss-Pot Bureaucrats (Mayors, Premiers & Unelected Judges) – Leaving the Rights & Freedoms of the Canadian People Vulnerable to their Interpretation (Whims).
CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNALS – CANADA’S KANGAROO COURTS:
Years Ago . . . A Prominent Member of One of Canada’s Many Human Right’s Tribunals, which are Comprised of Unelected (Appointed) Officials, who are Not Necessarily a Part of the Canadian Judicial System, Bestowed Upon Themselves the Power to Adjudicate (Also A Gift From Pierre Elliott Trudeau) Civil Rights & Liberties – Which When Passed, Carry the Weight of Law to Fine & Punish People with Whom they Disagree.
“THIS ISN’T AMERICA – WE DON’T HAVE A FIRST AMENDMENT” . . .
I Won’t Go Into A Great Depth Of These Tribunals . . . Other Than To Write, the Targets of these Tribunals Have the Right to be Heard, but NOT the Right to be Defended by Counsel, NOT the Right to Face His or Her Accuser & NEITHER the Right to Cross Examine.
IN CANADA . . . THIS PASSES FOR DEMOCRACY:
Even Without Aforementioned Judicial Rights – The Verdicts Of these Tribunals Are Law.
These Tribunals were First Established by Pierre Elliott Trudeau to Act as Arbiters in Instances of Discrimination, Basically in Cases of Apartment Seekers being Locked out of Rentals because of their Color, Ethnicity, Gender, Religion – Etc . . . Also to Stand in Protection for Minorities who Were Refused Services, Jobs – Etc . . . for the Same Racist Criteria . . . Which Was All Commendable – BUT . . .
Over The Years . . . These Appointed Tribunals (Every Province Has One) Took Upon Themselves the Authority to Judge all Manner of Discrimination – Real or Contrived, Much of Which Went far Beyond their Mandate, Without Federal Opposition to Reign them-in (With The Brief Exception Of Conservative Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper), Leaving their Assumed Power with Impunity . . . To Punish Whomever They Deemed – Guilty Of Doing Whatever.
There Is Judicial Recourse To Tribunal Judgments Which Includes Actual Court Defenses, where the Victim of the Tribunal has the Right to Face His or Her Accuser, has the Right to be Represented by an Attorney, and has the Right of Cross Examination . . . If The Courts Deem The Challenge To Be Worthy.
And Even If The Lower Courts Accept The Challenge . . . How Many People Have the Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars to Fight for their Rights all the Way up to the Supreme Court . . . Only If The Supreme Court Of Canada Agrees To Accept The Case?
But As Bad As This Is . . . In Canada’s Democratic Society – Bureaucrats Have the Power to Interpret, Make & Enforce Laws on Behalf of the Government in Power, which Become the Law of the Land, Upon Which Future Laws are Created by Using the Past Created Laws as Jurisprudence . . . Until these Laws are Challenged & Defeated in Court Over a Span of Years of Litigation, at the Cost of Many Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars . . . Where’s The Justice (Democracy) In That?
As A Current Example . . . By Will of the Federal Government, Without the Passage of Hearings, Debate or a Vote in Parliament, Canada has Assumed the Right to Seize Legally Owned Firearms from the Citizens of Canada from Coast to Coast.
Canada Has Also Decided By Law – Also Without Parliamentary Approval . . . to Give Hundreds of Millions of Dollars to Canada’s Media, which the Current Liberal Government Feels are Worthy of the Government’s Largesse, which in Many Ways is Similar to What the Democrats & Mitch McConnell Want to Do in the United States of America.
The Absolute Guardians Of Freedom In The United States Of America . . . Are the Steadfastness of the US Constitutional Rights of Free Speech (Freedom Of Expression) And the Right to Own Firearms for Amongst Other Things . . . To Protect The Right Of Free Speech.
AS I WROTE NEAR THE BEGINNING OF THIS EDITORIAL . . .
“This Isn’t America – We Don’t Have A First Amendment” . . . Was a “Proud” Statement Broadcast on Radio by a Senior Member of the Human Rights Commission, as he Castigated Canadians for Assuming that in Canada, we Enjoy the Same Constitutional Protections as Do the Americans.
The Fact That He Was Proud To Make This Statement . . . Was In Itself Horrifying.
CANADA IS LOSING OUR FREEDOMS BECAUSE OF DEMOCRACY:
Let Me Put This As Succinctly As I Can . . . America Is Becoming Canada.
