Policy Announcement on Radical Gender Ideology Maxime Bernier – Press Conference – Winkler, May 23, 2023
With the active support of the woke far left and all establishment parties, including Pierre Poilievre and the fake Conservatives, radical trans activists are trying to destroy one of the key building blocks of a healthy society – the distinction between men and women. This evil agenda, which contradicts basic biological realities, is particularly harmful to women and children.
In recent years, cultural Marxists and radical activists in the media, government, and schools have made every effort to normalize toxic transgender ideology. They teach children that stereotypes determine their gender, and if they do not fit into the traditional male or female gender roles, they encourage them to think they were born in the wrong body.
Children are never born in the wrong body. Children should be taught to accept themselves, not seek solutions through pharmaceuticals and medical procedures. Chris Elston, better known as Billboard Chris, is a father and activist trying to raise awareness about the danger of gender ideology. As he likes to say: “There’s only two sexes, zero genders, and infinite personalities. Just because a little girl plays in the dirt, or enjoys sports, does not mean she’s a boy. She’s a beautiful young girl. There is no such thing as a ‘transgender child’”.
Most boys and girls suffering from gender dysphoria simply grow out of it. Many suffer from other mental issues, such as autism, or are under the temporary influence of a phenomenon of social contagion.
Bill C-4, which was unanimously adopted by all parties in the House of Commons in 2021, including the fake Conservatives, criminalizes parents and therapists who try to help minors with gender dysphoria accept who they are. In effect, the law bans “conversion therapy” in one direction, but allows it in the other. It is illegal to treat children for a mental disorder, but it is legal to encourage them to undergo “gender affirming therapy” and mutilate their bodies.
Taking puberty blockers at a young age will transform their body and sterilize them for life, when they are too young to evaluate the impact of such a momentous decision. Sex change surgeries cause many complications and require lifelong treatments. More and more trans people who underwent such surgeries regret it later in life and want to “detransition”, but it’s tragically too late.
Cultural fads like Drag Queen Story Hours promote this ideology among children and make it appear normal to identify as the other sex or as different invented genders. Last week, I met parents who are trying to get books removed from school libraries that promote gender ideology and contain inappropriate pornographic images. There is actually an article in the Criminal Code that says it’s illegal to make such images available to minors. Why is it not enforced? I will also attend a board of trustees meeting in Brandon this evening with concerned parents, where this issue will be discussed.
Women’s rights and security are being trampled to accommodate men pretending to be the other sex. As a result, women are encountering men in changing rooms and bathrooms. Violent male criminals are being incarcerated in women’s prisons. The transfer to women’s prisons of male inmates who self-identify as women has been standard practice in Canada since it was introduced by the Trudeau government in 2018. It has resulted in male criminals with histories of sexual abuse being housed alongside female inmates, with several cases of violent behaviour being reported in the media.
There is a particularly horrific case in British Columbia involving a man, Adam Laboucan, who raped a three-month-old boy when he was 15 years old. He drowned a 3-year old boy. He became Canada’s youngest violent sex offender when he was sentenced to prison at 17 years old. After he started identifying as a woman and changed his name to Tara Desousa, he was transferred to the Fraser Valley Institution for Women in Abbotsford. This is a minimum security prison with a Mother-Child Program.
It’s unbelievable that this can happen in our society today. Instead of protecting our most vulnerable, Justin Trudeau’s insane woke policies put women and children at risk, while accommodating violent rapists who pretend to be the other sex. Pierre Poilievre’s fake Conservatives have nothing to say – they even signal to trans activists that they want their support!
Women also have to compete unfairly with biological men in sports. A few weeks ago, for example, a bearded pro powerlifter, who has decided he is actually a woman, entered a women’s competition in Lethbridge. He smashed a record held by another so-called transgender powerlifter who was watching on. I’m not joking! Canada in 2023 is stranger than fiction! This is not only totally unfair for the real women participating in these competitions. It’s absurd. It’s ridiculous. It’s an insult to our intelligence.
Gender ideology is even transforming our language. Bill C-16, adopted by the Liberal government in 2016 and famously opposed by Jordan Peterson, recognized gender self-identification and opened the door to compelled speech. Since then, businesses and government agencies have banned the use of words like “woman” and “mother” in favour of “menstruating people” and “birthing people”.
While adults can make whatever choices they want regarding their sex and gender identification, Canadians who believe there are only two immutable sexes and genders must not be compelled to adapt their language and behaviour to accommodate woke gender ideology.
The normalization of radical gender ideology will have a catastrophic impact on women and children if we do not reverse course soon. That is why I am releasing this official PPC policy today. The People’s Party is the only party taking this issue seriously. None of the establishment parties, including the fake Conservatives, have anything to say about it. On the contrary, they support these disastrous policies and trends.
It is completely unacceptable that not a single elected MP is brave enough to stand up for women and children, and basic biological realities! I have been speaking out against this madness for many years already, and I will continue to speak out against it in Parliament once I am elected MP for Portage-Lisgar.
First, a PPC government will modify the Criminal Code to outlaw the use of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and any form of bodily mutilation on minors with the goal of “transitioning” to another sex. Moreover, any person encouraging minors to “transition” will be held criminally responsible for attempting to cause harm.
We will remove the ban imposed by Bill C-4, the so-called “conversion therapy bill”, that is preventing parents and counsellors from helping minors who suffer from gender dysphoria accept their body.
We will strictly enforce section 163.1(1)(b) of the Criminal Code in order to remove inappropriate pornographic content from schools and libraries.
We will protect women’s spaces – bathrooms, changing rooms, shelters, and prisons – from intrusion by biological men.
We will maintain separate competitions for women in which biological men cannot participate in sports regulated and funded by the federal government.
We will abolish federal programs that fund sex change operations for civil servants and prisoners.
And finally, a PPC government will repeal Bill C-16, the bill that added gender self-identification as ground for protection against discrimination.
Most people living in this riding support these policies. They have a choice on June 19: They can support a fake Conservative who, like the rest of his party, will say and do nothing; or to elect someone who is not afraid to speak up against radical gender ideology and to fight to protect women and children. Thank you.
As 2022 draws to a close I see Canada’s Independent and Social Media along with the Conservative Party of Canada all abuzz over PM Justin Trudeau’s latest effort on the part of his globalist handlers to deliver a final blow to the New World Order’s inescapable Nemesis – the INTERNET.
Ads on Facebook by the Conservative Party of Canada, like the one below, are calling on Canadians to sign their petition and help them stop the Liberal’s blatant attempt to curb the tongues of the general public when they’re online before the final judgement call occurs and “the People” learn who is really behind all the madness the world’s been subjected to since the advent of the Great Scamdemic of 2020.
When I clicked on their petition ad to sign it a window opened stated the following:
STOP ONLINE CENSORSHIP
“We the undersigned call on the Liberal government to stop their C-11 censorship law that will curtail the freedom of expression Canadians enjoy online.
Whereas the Liberal Bill C-11 threatens to end the freedoms of Canadians on the internet in an open marketplace with a free exchange of ideas.
Whereas under this archaic system of censorship, government gatekeepers will now have the power to control which videos, posts and other content Canadians can see online.
Whereas Conservative Senators are keeping up the pressure in the Senate to abandon this ill-conceived censorship of freedom of expression online.
And whereas Conservatives will continue to fight back to defend the freedom of expression of Canadians, without which no other Charter rights are possible.
Therefore be it resolved that we call on this Liberal government to roll back their online censorship law C-11, and ensure Canadians’ right to freedom of expression online is protected.”
Of course for old radical’s such as myself who’ve been in the freedom of speech front line trenches for decades (and still am!) there’s a bit of irony (and possibly even hypocrisy) attached to the Conservative Party’s current love affair today with the concept of “freedom of expression”.
I can readily recall that it was under the dictatorship of the late Conservative PM Stephen Harper that the freedom of expression loving folks in Canada were already living in and suffering under a tyrannical, Orwellian dystopia thanks to former PM Pierre Trudeau and the Liberal’s draconian Sec. 13 “hate crime” legislation which they had surreptitiously slipped in under the wire immediately following 911 when the House was adjourning for the Christmas break.
Below is an image of many of the former victims of Canada’s undemocratic Censorship Laws.
While Sec.13 was obviously not the creation of the Conservative Party, PM Harper’s government had been going along with it up until the point where they finally realized that it was in fact a double-edged sword; one that could be used to silence not only critics of the left but also critics of the right. This occurred when a couple of media personalities of the day (who I’m not able to identify due to legal restrictions) had complaints laid against them by those who they were running down in the controlled media.
As a result of the conundrum the Conservatives found themselves in they were able to eventually repeal this specious piece of Orwellian legislation with the help of some Conservative Senators back in 2012.
Their fundamental error though at the time of repealing Sec.13 from the Canadian Human Rights Act was to fail to go one step further and repeal the more sinister and dangerous freedom-destroying legislation contained in the Canadian Criminal Code under Sections 318-320; ones which the Liberal government continues to embellish with further restrictions and undoubtedly plan to use against Canadian citizens in the times ahead.
It’s my hope that this time around the Conservative Party of Canada, should they gain a majority in the next federal election, will resolve this issue of freedom of expression once and for all and return to the common sense approach that existed in the former Canadian Bill of Rights which Conservative PM John Diefenbaker bequeathed to Canada on July 1, 1960. His words, spoken 62 years ago, still strike the hearts of all freedom loving Canadians today:
“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and for all mankind.”
History of Censorship in Canada
For those too young to remember and those still asleep at the wheel a decade ago it’s incumbent upon me to clarify the who, what and where of this former Censorship legislation known as Sec.13 and Sec. 318-320 of the CCC as well as the history of censorship in Canada from its nascent beginnings.
It’s my position, based upon over 20 years of research and 15 years of ongoing litigation, that Canada’s judicial system was infiltrated and co-opted by globalist interests operating in Canada since as early as 1919. Of course such an assertion will automatically be met with a loud hue and cry of “preposterous! outrageous!” followed immediately by much hand-wringing and declamations of “hatred” and “racism” and further punctuated, dramatized and broadcast across the nation via the Controlled Mainstream Media. So be it. It doesn’t detract one iota from the facts.
All that’s required in order to verify this war against our rights and freedoms, including our most basic right of speaking out and expressing our views on issues vital to our national well being, is to delve into any and all of the legal cases over the past 55 years associated with the issue of freedom of expression and one will see immediately that in practically every instance the globalist elites lining up and vying for intervenor status. And furthermore, concomitant with their zealousness to intervene is usually the underlying fact that it was themselves who were instrumental in bringing forth the charges. And if that isn’t the norm then they’re undoubtedly there to make sure that the complainant (usually an agent in one form or another) gets the maximum support of their power and influence in the courts and the media.
One might legitimately say that these deceptive measures to control freedom of speech actually began before the commencement of WW2. After Hitler and the National Socialist Party came to power in 1933 the world’s globalists in Canada were already growing fearful that Canadians might begin to believe what Chancellor Hitler was saying about the International banking cartel and their control of Germany’s own beleaguered nation and so, as a result of their growing paranoia, the provincial government of Manitoba, (of all places) passed a statute to combat what was apparently perceived to be a “rise in the dissemination of Nazi propaganda”, the premise of which (The Libel Act, R.S.M. 1913, c. 113, s. 13A (added S.M. 1934, c. 23, s. 1) was later to become The Defamation Act, R.S.M. 1987, c. D20, s. 19(1) and was in all likelihood the first volley launched against freedom of expression in Canada.
Up until 1970 Section 181 of the Criminal Code which reads, “Every one who wilfully publishes a statement, tale or news that he knows is false and that causes or is likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years.” was the only provision in the Code even remotely connected to the offence of group defamation but it didn’t, at the time, specifically make mention of “hate propaganda”.
When WW2 ended the work of the globalists began in earnest. Their first step in the direction of censorship was the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 with its references to “hate propaganda”. By 1953 we find that the globalists in Canada were already diligently pursuing efforts toward this same end with their attempt to insert anti-hate propaganda provisions into the Canadian Criminal Code which was being revised in that same year.
Their deceptive labours eventually bore fruit in 1965 when they were finally able to convince Canada’s federal Justice Minister Guy Favreau to appoint a special (interest?) committee to look into the purported “problems” connected with the dissemination of “hate propaganda” in Canada.
Surprisingly (not) what became known as “The Special Committee on Hate Propaganda in Canada” was fully furnished with a gaggle of legal beagles that included one notable lawyer who would become instrumental in aiding the globalists in their relentless quest for censorship laws.
This was none other than Professor Pierre E. Trudeau, Associate Professor of Law, University of Montreal, soon to become Canada’s Prime Minister.
The committee studied the alleged “problem” from January 29th to November 10th, 1965 and their conclusions called for new legislation that ultimately affected the Post Office Act, the Customs Act, and most critically in today’s context, what is now Section 319 of the Criminal Code.
Only now that the true history of the last eighty years is finally coming to light, thanks to the free and open Internet, are we allowed to search for and see the original, unadulterated script that was so cleverly designed by the NWO forces of the day and it turns out to be a program of diabolic, treacherous, political pragmatism designed to destroy democratic institutions and replace them with an atheistic, elitist, macabre vision of a New World Order where they, and only they, would hold all the power and control over the world’s people along with all the resources of the planet.
It was back in the mid-1970s when the globalists began lobbying Ontario’s then Deputy Attorney General, F.W. Callaghan and putting pressure on him to silence one of their critics, a rather vociferous fellow by the name John Ross Taylor who had come up with the novel idea of leaving telephone messages on the phone lines of those who he was critical of. The recipients of Ross’s unwelcome expressions were demanding of the Federal Department of Justice the inclusion of speech-restricting legislation that removed the need for “willfulness” or fair comment based on public interest. In that way they could circumvent having to pay their own legal costs which would, under the new law, be off loaded on to the unsuspecting Canadian taxpayer instead.
According to the history of Section 13 by Marc Lemire, an advocate and fighter for freedom of speech during PM Harper’s reign, he states, “In 1976, the Federal Government was looking at a larger Act for employment issues and the provision of federally regulated services. This Act eventually would end up with the innocuous sounding name: the Canadian Human Rights Act. Although no other section of the CanadianHuman Rights Act covered speech, it was not a problem for the Federal government to capitulate and slip in an extra section to satisfy Ontario’s Attorney General’s lust to silence John Ross Taylor and his home-based answering machine.”
“In 1977Bill C-25 or the “Canadian Human Rights Act” was passed by the House of Commons on July 14th. Contained within it under the sub-title of “Hate messages” was Section 13 which read:
13(1) It is a discriminatory practice for a person or a group of persons acting in concert to communicate telephonically or to cause to be so communicated, repeatedly, in whole or in part by means of the facilities of a telecommunication undertaking within the legislative authority of Parliament, any matter that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt by reason of the fact that that person or those persons are identifiable on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.
As Lemire goes on to state:
“Only a few years after the law was enacted, Mr. Callaghan finally got his wish and John Ross Taylor became its first victim, with the Canadian Human Rights Commission itself and several globalists as the complainants.
“Since the law was first enacted, two major changes were made to Section 13. These changes fundamentally shifted the original intent of the legislation, and turned Section 13 into an instrument to financially and morally punish those with politically incorrect views.
“The first change to the legislation occurred on May 15, 1998, when Royal Accent was given to Bill S-5 (1998), which added a new penalty provision to the Canadian Human Rights Act. Bill S-5 added Section 54 to the Canadian Human Rights Act, and allows the Human Rights Tribunal to impose a financial penalty of up to $10,000. On top of the fines, Section 54 also gave the fanatical Tribunal the ability to impose penalties of up to $20,000 as so-called ‘special compensation’.
“According to the background section of Bill S-5, these penalties were added ‘as a response to the rising incidence of hate crimes around the world. The government believes that stronger measures are needed to deter individuals and organizations from establishing hate lines. It hopes to accomplish this by allowing victims of such lines to apply for compensation and subjecting offenders to financial penalty.’
“The second change occurred in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Sadly, this legislation equated non-violent politically incorrect words – which are covered by Section 13 – with terrorism and concerns of national security. Under the guise of Bill C-36 – Canada’s Anti-Terrorism Act, Section 13 was expanded to cover “a group of interconnected or related computers, including the Internet.”
This change, gave the power to the Canadian Human Rights Commission to censor the internet and harass Canadians with views that the Rights Fanatics disagree with.
Closer to Home
Of itself censorship is nothing new having been around since Cicero’s day. It didn’t become established to any degree until after the middle of the 15th Century when Johannes Gutenberg invented the movable-type printing press and set off the Gutenberg revolution. Once the technical means were in place allowing mass communication to occur the inevitable pursuit of controlling the narrative also appeared and by the turn of the 20th Century the globalists of the day had already firmly established their worldwide news networks. They’re still with us today and the times we now live in are, in many ways, but a reflection of the effects that the controlled media has produced upon the planet over the past 125 years.
Having arrived on this 3rd rock from the sun in 1947 I was in a sense a Johnny-come-lately in terms of understanding how the mass media was structured even though by the time I left high school in 1965 Marshall McLuhan’s Gutenberg Galaxy had already been on the market for three years. My time spent at Simon Fraser University from its opening in the fall of ’65 until I left with my Teaching Certificate in hand was the precursor to what would eventually turn out to be a rather radical life spent within McLuhan’s famed galaxy.
I didn’t encountered the malevolent effects of censorship until I reached my 50th year. It was only then I finally realized that if a Canadian citizen wishes to express themselves in a free and open manner that the heavy hand of Big Brother can and will appear to silence you. My reaction at the time to having my letters to the editor of the local community newspaper the Quesnel–Cariboo Observer censored by my then employer School District #28 set me on a new path that would eventually lead up to the present moment and the issue now at hand.
Those who know me and my previous published works since I began publishing my own newspaper The Radical back in June of 1998 will understand perfectly well what I’m talking about when I state that ever since I first encountered head on the diabolic, Big Brother, Communist threat to individual freedom of expression back in 2007 the issue of CENSORSHIP has over shadowed my life’s work.
The legal consequences alone, after spending over a decade in and out of the Provincial and Supreme Court systems, have left an indelible mark on my ability to speak TRUTH to the power brokers who, since the onset of their transparently overt 2020 Covid attack upon humanity, have now turned the socio-political world into a farcical free-for-all with no holds barred.
Front Page News for November 23, 2012
“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, Shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and Beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” ~ Jesus Christ, St. Matthew Ch. 7, vs 24 -27
The premise of my argument that Canada’s Legacy media or MSM is, and always has been, an integral part of the NWO’s overall plan to formulate and establish Orwellian laws inimical to the rights and freedoms of the Canadian people stands undefeated to this day for the simple reason that the globalists will never debate the issue in an open public forum as they’re fully aware it’s much easier to just use the power of their press to vilify and smear anyone who exhibits the testicular audacity to openly challenge their verifiable culpability in every criminal deception they’ve been involved in over the past century and longer. Frankly stated it’s the modus operandi of these globalists to react precisely in this fashion for that is how they mendaciously twist and stifle debate on any issue of national importance to Canadians, be it our Charter rights or our fundamental right (and responsibility as patriotic protectors of our country) to question the direction of the nation’s domestic and foreign policies.
It’s also my ardent contention that the Censorship template for Canada’s anti-free speech legislation, falsely labelled “Hate Propaganda” was, from the start, designed in such a way as to function as a legal shield which the globalists could then use to defend themselves against any allegations aimed at exposing their covert actions, all of which were designed to benefit their inordinate influence over Canadian politics.
Back during the period of my legal battles with the Canadian Human Rights Commission then Conservative PM Stephen Harper was the globalist’s Trojan Horse de jure and front man in this deliberate, ongoing, slow motion coup to capture the nation’s political and legal systems. His only saving grace was to have not stood in the way of repealed the Sec. 13 law before his tenure ended.
When we go back in history and retrace the steps these Machiavellian interlopers have taken since the end of World War 2 it’s clearly evident what they’ve been up to, especially in light of the now increasing displeasure that more and more Canadians are exhibiting toward the actions of the current Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when it comes to his relentless, mean-spirited attacks upon our truckers, our clergy and our nurses and doctors.
Those despicable actions, exacerbated to the nth degree by his psychotic obsession with wanting to jab every living soul in the country, from pregnant mothers and new born babies to the aged, with the World Health Organization and Fauci’s poisons that are now decimating the world’s populations everywhere make it abundantly evident that our nation is under serious attack by these foreign globalist insiders who are manipulating the Prime Minister of the country to commit treasonous acts designed to obliterate the people’s fundamental rights and freedoms.
These examples coupled with his outright phony posturing and endless display of abject obeisance to the wishes of international globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum of which he’s a charter member and one of the more fanatical and embarrassing examples of what a true Statesman ought not to be all point to the unequivocal conclusion that the nation has been betrayed by the Liberal Party of Canada and it MUST BE REPLACED in the most expedient manner as possible.
A final reminder for readers is Sec. 2b of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms which clearly delineates our fundamental right to freedom of expression:
Sec.2b(2): Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press andother media of communication.
As fate would have it my own legal case was destined to be the test case for the globalists working in Canada. Should they win and find me guilty under Sec. 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada then that precedent would undoubtedly unleash a flood of subsequent attacks upon the rest of the bloggers and publishers and writers and artists living in Canada who might also see an imminent threat to their freedom of expression encapsulated in this draconian, Orwellian legislation designed with malicious forethought to censor truth and stymie any and all attempts to achieve and maintain justice and freedom of speech in Canada.
Just as the great parable of Jesus Christ shown above regarding the foolish man who built his house upon the sand has come down through history so too has the foolish attempt by those who labour for the Satanic forces to build a globalist house of invisible governance upon the sands of deception, usury and an insatiable lust for power and control over their fellow mortals.
Now that the rains of the peoples’ outrageous indignation and the floods of perceived injustice and repression of personal freedoms and the winds of Truth and Freedom are beginning to beat with greater and greater intensity upon the once mighty and powerful House of the New World Order (thanks to the miracle of the Internet), the underpinnings of this deceptive, age-old hoax are giving way and, if the people continue to unite and persevere in their staunch resistance to and abolition of all the censorious “Hate Propaganda” laws now being used against them, then soon and with great relief and thankfulness, will come the inevitable fall of this House of Horrors followed by a new beginning for those who want only peace and love and justice and brotherhood to reign supreme.
