Never Before: An Open Letter to the Voters in the Portage-Lisgar, Manitoba By-election by Arthur Topham June 16, 2023
Dear Portage-Lisgar Voters,
I write to you from British Columbia as a 76 year old Canadian-born citizen, father of 4 and grandfather to 8. My purpose in doing so is to try and convince you to vote for Maxime Bernier the Leader of the People’s Party of Canada in next Monday’s Portage-Lisgar by-election on June 19th, 2023.
I’ve been living in B.C since 1957 but was born into a farming family on the eastern border of Saskatchewan near Togo back in 1947 about 200 miles NW of Winkler so in that sense we were practically neighbours back then. 🙂
Over the course of my lifetime I’ve witnessed all the political/social/economic changes that have occurred in our now beleaguered country and to say the least, never before in the history of our nation since the BNA Act of 1867 has Canada had to face the imminent loss of its national sovereignty along with all the fundamental rights and freedoms it has fought so hard to gain in order to remain “Strong and Free”.
As conscientious and caring Canadians we who have been witnessing the events of the past half century and longer are well aware there is now an open, acknowledged conspiracy on the part of the world’s power brokers to extinguish the basic rights and freedoms of citizens everywhere; not only to extinguish but to exacerbate at the same time, unnatural and perverted acts which are presently destroying the lives of future generations and putting at risk the very original purpose of Providence itself.
Basically there are two versions of the present political narrative afoot: one broadcast to the world on a 24/7 basis via the legacy or mainstream media (msm) created, owned and controlled by the international globalist elites and the other via the world wide web through social media outlets such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other electronic formats. These two fundamental forms of communication compromise the yin and the yang of all our interactions amongst each other as human beings.
That said I want to get down to the nitty gritty of “Never Before” and see whether somewhere, amid the dark and sinister clouds that are quickly gathering over our nation, there might be found a ray of hope which holds promise of stemming the present tide of infamy, deception and censorship that’s now threatening our very existence not only as an independent country but even so far as a species upon Mother Earth.
A Trinity of Trouble
From a political perspective Canadian voters are facing a major conundrum in terms of differentiating fact from fiction when it comes to believing the words and actions of those “Leaders” of the legacy parties the Liberals, Conservatives, NDP and Greens. Together they comprise what’s been nicknamed “The Uniparty”. The rhetoric of all three is coming on fast and furious as we approach that fatal day when voters across the nation will have to decide who is who and who, upon gaining power, will address and remedy all the present crises that are becoming more openly grotesque and disquieting with each passing day. Allow me to present a short list of said grievances which “the people” are becoming increasingly alarmed by:
World Economic Forum (WEF) influence on Canadian Politicians
COVID-19 Scamdemic of 2000
Vaxed versus Unvaxed
Forced lay offs of Unvaxed Nurses/Healthcare Workers
Sudden Death Occurrences related to said bio-weapons
Transgenderism & the 2SLGBTQI+ agenda
Stabbing & Killing by Transgendered
Transgendering Canada’s Military
Liberal/Trudeau/Conservative/Poilievre Promotion of Drag Queen camps
Grooming of little children by Transgendered
Far Left Wokism
Trudeau’s Attack on Legal Gun Owners
Liberal Censorship Law C-11
Liberal collusion with China
Inflation, Debt & Unfair Equalization
Liberal Climate Change agenda
3 party Liberal/Conservative/NDP support for Ukraine and Zelensky
Hate Crime laws in Canada’s Criminal Code
Disregard for Canadian Constitution
World Health Organization (WHO)
United Nations Organization (UNO)
Truckers Convoy to Ottawa in 2022
Trudeau’s Emergency Order
Residential School Disinformation
Anti-White, Anti-Christian agendas
It is practically self-evident (or ought to be) that given the past 60 years since the days of PM John G. Diefenbaker and his Bill of Rights Canada’s identity and sovereignty have suffered massive assaults by foreign organizations like the UNO, WEF, WHO and NATO. The Liberal Party, buttressed and blessed by the NDP, plus the Conservative Party under Harper and now Pierre Poilievre, have all sacrificed the nation’s sovereignty and dignity on the alter of Globalism in favour of an International agenda that precludes the rights and freedoms of the common people of Canada.
What Canadians now face is a dark future fraught with increasing turmoil, sickness, confusion, poverty, perversion and lack of principles with nowhere to turn to when it comes to the political platforms of all the major federal parties. That leaves “the people” caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place unless…unless…unless…they wake up to the realization that it is truly time to take a leap of faith and give the only other federal political party, the People’s Party of Canada, a chance to turn the ship of state around by electing the PPC’s Leader Maxime Bernier in your riding and then into the House of Commons where his voice, the voice of the People, will finally be heard.
All this said it therefore behooves the voters of Portage-Lisgar to give the people of Canada a chance by voting for the one and only candidate whose platform addresses all of the list of grievances listed above that the Canadian voters want to have resolved. The fate of our nation now lies in your hands. That one ray of hope is the People’s Party of Canada. Please do the right thing and vote for Max Bernier PPC on June 19th.
Responsible Slavery: A Critique of Mayor Bob Simpson’s Scathing Attack Upon Quesnel’s Freedom Rallies
The Cariboo Sentinel
It wasn’t bad enough that Quesnel Mayor Bob Simpson and the bulk of his gang of sycophantic city councillors had the audacity to steal the Gold Pan City sign off the intersection of Hwy 97 and Hwy 26 (Barkerville Hwy) back in 2020. Finding little else to do besides drain the taxpayer’s pocket books with one ridiculous initiative after another now the Mayor has decided to go on full attack against the citizens of Quesnel who are opposed to all the brutal and deadly decisions being implemented by the BC NDP government in response to the greatest scam the world has ever experienced in recorded history – the covertly manufactured Covid-19 deception of 2020.
In Quesnel’s City Council News for September 21, 2021 Mayor Simpson has penned one of his more scathing and deceptive diatribes, aimed at discrediting all the good efforts of intelligent, conscientious people in and around the city who’ve come to fully realize – after over a year and a half of government fear, misinformation, unnecessary lockdowns, mandated mask wearing, social distancing and, of late, forced jabs of untested, rat killing, experimental “vaccinations” now being manipulated in a myriad number of ways by all the political parties in the province and the mainstream in order to reduced everyone to a mental state akin to that of a genetically-modified turnip and thus more easily enslaved to the New World Order’s agenda for planet – that their governments at every level are no longer acting in the best interests of the people. The deluded, myopic and misinformed Mayor titled his attack “Responsible Freedom” when it truth he ought to have called it “IRRESPONSIBLE SLAVERY FOR THE MASSES!”
Of course the erudite-challenged social delinquent who scribbled out this poison-pen proclamation to the proletariats of Quesnel immediately dredged up the usual weaponized terms that every would-be dictator enlists in order to denigrate, disparage, slander and malign whomever they wish to destroy. “Anarchy”, “mob rule”, “might is right” all immediately spring forth from the fickle fingertips of Mayor Simpson in order to set the tone for his first gut shot wherein he states:
“That’s why these so-called ‘freedom rallies’ make no sense, especially in the middle of a global pandemic. The “freedom” that this minority is calling for is the freedom of anarchy: the freedom to make up their own rules independent of science, common sense, and good government.”
Having pronounced judgement on the anarcho “counter-revolutionaries” Quesnel’s Bolshevik Commissar Mayor then employs as much double talk as he can muster in his defence of Canada’s “big business” interests that have dominated this perverse, communist narrative since its inception in 2020 by making the following convoluted comment:
“Yes, good government. The inherent mistrust of “big government” in the sloganeering of these “freedom” groups is dangerous and misleading. I worked behind the iron curtain in Soviet controlled countries during the late 1970s and saw first-hand what an unelected, dictatorial government can do to those who protest against it.”
He then goes on to say, “The irony today is that the anti-vax and anti-passport protesters have nothing to fear from the government they are trying to get us all to be afraid of, because their freedom to protest is protected by law.”
It’s at this juncture in Mayor Simpson’s litany of lies and sophistry that I have to stop and say to Bolshevik Bob, in a vernacular that most people in the Cariboo are very familiar with, “Bullshit!”. Your audacity to try and tell others that the protesters are “protected by law” is as simple-minded, false and absurd as it is to tell Canadians that their right to freedom of speech is also “protected by law”. Nothing could be further from the truth. The msm and all levels of government from the federal down to the provincial, municipal and regional are ALL guilty of carry out a witch-hunt against the normal people and have been doing so ever since they started down their dead-end road to mass inoculation of the whole human race. Incitement comes to mind and we see it every time some lousy, pin-head politician has the chutzpah to attack those who want to retain their God-given rights and sovereignty over their own bodies. And you Mayor Simpson are a prime example of what I’m talking about.
Further to the above fatuous frothings you carry on like a good foot soldier for the Fauci/Gates/WHO/CNC criminal cartel by pouring out more of your puerile, petrol-soaked lies and ongoing fear-mongering and hate-generating vilification, all designed to exacerbate what you’ve already attempted to cover up and deny – the Inquisitional attitude toward the “‘freedom’ protesters” who you claim are, “creating unnecessary confusion and disharmony at a time when we all need to be more trusting of our democratically elected government and its public health officers.” Nothing like a good bonfire to get rid of all those heretical protesters eh Bob?
Having betrayed the local citizens who are attempting to alert a dumbed-down public and judged them as being nothing but uninformed conspiracy theorists you conclude your hit piece with the same old worn-out status quo rhetoric in one last gesture of obeisance to your misinformed masters who you appear willing to collude with.
Follow all the rules and mandates that have proven ineffective and remember to remember:
“That the significant spike in severe cases of COVID currently threatening our health care system and most vulnerable citizens is made up of primarily unvaccinated people should be sufficient evidence that the vaccinations are providing protection against this virus. We just need more people vaccinated.”
Yet another fabricated LIE Bob meant to deceive the public when in truth it’s primarily those who have been taking the jab who are still getting the annual flu (now magically having morphed into Covid-19) and proving itself to be ineffective. But of course we can’t have the general public realize this and so you do your damnedest to convince Quesnel residents to accept that it’s those terrible “anarchist” anti-vaxers and “unvaccinated” people who are responsible for it all and that we should “trust” government and trust the pseudo-science that emanates forth from un-doctors Gates & Fauci and the CDC and the 3-stooges in our own provincial NDP government – Horgan and Henry and Hix.
To conclude, what can one say about Mayor Bob Simpson’s hate-filled rant against the freedom rally folks of Quesnel that hasn’t already been said about Preparation-H? Not much.
P.S. Do go on to the Quesnel.ca website to read the full meal deal of Mayor Simpson’s column and write to him at his email address below to let him know how you feel about it.
Mayor and Council write Council News columns to provide residents information and updates regarding Council and City projects, initiatives, committees and business. This column is published in Quesnel Cariboo Observer on Wednesdays [and is paid for by city taxpayers. Ed.].
A six-pack of Federal Candidates vying for BC’s Cariboo-Prince George Riding gathered in Quesnel’s Legion Hall on the evening of Wednesday, September 8th to stake their claim for the people’s vote in Canada’s upcoming September 20th, 2021 election. It was the strangest all-candidates forum that this reporter has ever covered and it can easily be attributed to the fact that the former world of politics has now been so dramatically transformed by the massive, mind-bending global phenomenon called “Covid-19” that any semblance of the old ways of campaigning have now taken on a surreal appearance that leaves the audience with a lingering sense of being caught up in some sci-fi world akin to Robert Heinlein’s novel, Stranger in a Strange Land.
There was an element of the Titanic to the event wherein the candidates’ chairs took on the appearance of the deck chairs on the ill-fated ship that eventually came to symbolize any human effort fated to fail because the basis for it had been pre-empted by some savage force too shocking and dreadful for the human mind to accept as reality. For the majority of the candidates present on stage, plus the Green Party candidate who appeared via video link, this obvious state of affairs appeared to be missing. It was business as usual.
With all the hullabaloo surrounding masks and forced experimental “vaccines” and lockdowns I was pleasantly surprised to find that upon entering the Legion Hall I wasn’t given the 3rd Degree. I had arrived early because I’d heard on Facebook that the Peoples Party of Canada candidate, Jeremy Gustafson, was coming to town a couple of hours earlier to meet up with friends and supporters and I figured it might be an opportunity to touch base with him before the forum commenced. Upon entering the hall I was greeted by two ladies who were busy setting up chairs and preparing for the event. They were pleasant and friendly and when I told them I was a reporter for the Cariboo Sentinel they appeared pleased and proceeded to set up a media table along the south side of the hall across from the candidates and provided it with bottled drinking water as well.
After some typical delays setting up the electronics and mikes and video for livestreaming the event via Facebook and connecting with George Henderson at MyCaribooNow radio a formal welcome was given to all the candidates by Tim Lofstrom, President of the Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce who were hosting the event.
Following that a Moderator for the chamber, Ruby Derksen, explained to the candidates and the minuscule audience of approximately 20 people present, the protocols for the evening’s entertainment. Each candidate would be given 3 minutes for their introductory speech then all candidates would be given a number of questions (all the same) for them to reply to. Once everyone had completed the question period the event would then culminating with another 3-minute summing up for the candidates.
Years of political activism and publishing in the Alternative News Media gives one a background gestalt from which to judge candidates and after listening to the speeches and responses to the questions from the Moderator it was clear that two candidates stood out from the rest and they did so merely by displaying their earnest concerns about the devastating effect that the Covid-19 plandemic was having on the nation as a whole; how it, more than any other factor, was responsible for Canada now being on a collision-course with economic ruin for small businesses while at the same time dividing and destroying families and using force to prohibit churches from gathering to worship the Creator.
The manner in which the chairs were lined up meant that the candidate for the People’s Party of Canada – Jeremy Gustafson – was the first to speak. Next to him was the current incumbent representative for Cariboo-Prince George, MP Todd Doherty and then the NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon. On Audrey’s left was Henry Thiessen representing the Christian Heritage Party of Canada followed by Garth Frizzell of the Liberal Party of Canada. The final candidate was Leigh Hunsinger-Chang for the Green Party of BC.
The first of the two stand-out candidates in order of the seating arrangement was Jeremy Gustafson for the Peoples Party of Canada.
The second candidate, whose views on the critical issues were in most part in accord with the PPC candidate, was Henry Thiessen of the Christian Heritage Party of Canada (CHP). I should also add that the CHP has been for years now the only federal party that has made freedom of speech a major plank in its platform.
In a sense the above unmentioned factors must have played a part in the choice of questions being posed to the candidates but, as so often happens in today’s society – one saturated with decades of subliminal indoctrination in the gross art of political correctness – the crux of the issue, the mandated Lockdowns and the pending Vaccine Passports weren’t brought to the forefront but lay in the background while side-issues such as mothers’ mental health and child development, the opioid crisis, government assistance for residents and businesses affected by wildfires and the recent msm red-herring Residential School uproar coupled with alleged “missing children” were all laid out on the table for each candidate to address. The COVID-19 ‘epidemic’, better known as the “plandemic” or the “scamdemic” in the Alternative & Social Media, only surfaced in a peripheral manner when candidates were asked what strategies and approach their party planned to implement in order to help small businesses. It’s akin to a federal government election taking place during the period of WW2 in Canada and the candidates then running for election not being asked any questions regarding the war.
The incumbent MP for Cariboo-Prince George, Todd Doherty of the Conservative Party of Canada had the usual, status quo patent responses to all of the questions; ones that he’s been repeating on a regular basis over his past 6 years of tenure as representative for ‘the people’. In his opening remarks during the 3-minute introductory speech Doherty waxed eloquent by stating, “I’m deeply passionate about the concerns of this region.” When I heard those words coming out of his mouth I immediately reflected upon the many Open Letters, LetterOne, LetterTwo, LetterThree, that I had sent to MP Doherty over the past 9 months asking him to address the many critical issues surrounding the government Lockdowns, the attacks upon Christian churches and the pending experimental ‘vaccine’ passports, along with all the other serious problems stemming from these brutal initiatives that fly in the face of our Constitutional Rights and Freedoms only to be met with dead silence on every occasion. So much for Mr. Doherty’s “deeply passionate” concerns for his constituents.
Seated (appropriately) on Doherty’s left was NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon.
From what I could hear of Audrey’s comments (which was very little unfortunately due to the erratic nature of the sound system) and observe from her presentation she was well prepared to respond to the status quo questions that were on the evening’s menu and spoke with confidence and one might even say passion on certain issues. As she spoke I again reflected upon my own past years of personal involvement with the New Democratic Party which spanned my early life from birth until the early 1970’s when I became interested in the new kid on the block – the Green Party – and turned toward it and helped form the first local Green Party chapter in Quesnel back in the early 80’s. My family, going back two generations had been strong supporters of the CCF and then the federal NDP under the longstanding leadership of Tommy Douglas. Our household was basically democratic socialist since the 1930’s.
While I listened to Ms. Mckinnon responding to the questions my mind also turned to the present NDP government here in B.C. and to the current federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, all of whom are hell-bent on jabbing every single soul in the province and country with these untested, experimental injections of toxic substances that are now crippling and killing hundreds of thousands of people around the world. It’s bad enough that these lethal untested shots are killing the elderly and the immune compromised yet Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Dix and Premier Horgan are all for incrementally lowering the age at which the poisoned jabs are administered so that now children are also endangered by this mind-boggling, mass hysteria that’s overtaken both the federal and provincial levels of government across the nation. When Dr. Charles Hoffe, MD, a long standing, well respected family physician from Lytton, B.C. attempted to alert Dr. Henry to the fact that the Moderna jab was killing and disabling his first nation patients the NDP government immediately turned on the good doctor and cut back on his ability to work. Then, to exacerbate the whole thing suddenly Lytton is subjected to a ‘wild fire’ and Dr. Hoffe’s clinic goes up in smoke!
So when I hear the NDP’s Singh telling Canadians, “This is an unprecedented moment for our country. Canadians need a government that has their back….”
and, “We believe the government should immediately take a leadership role in a federal vaccination strategy to ensure all Canadians can [will?] be vaccinated.”
and, “Canada needs to have the capacity to produce vaccines for public health emergences…New Democrats will establish a crown corporation charged with domestic vaccine production so that Canadians are never again at the back of the line.”
plus, “The federal government must also step up and regulate natural health products….”
I shudder, while my immediate thought is yes, the NDP’s Singh wants control of Canada so he can stab the people in the back with these untested so-called ‘vaccines’ under the pretence of there being an actual “pandemic” and in the process kowtow to the same international, communist-created orgs like the U.N. and the WHO and megalomaniacs like Gates and Fauci who are most likely funnelling into Horgan’s back pocket unmentioned amounts of currency for supporting their Machiavellian agenda of global hegemony.
Having such reflections while NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon was doing her best to put the NDP’s platform agenda into a more palatable presentation my heart went out to her while my thoughts turned to Tommy’s dream party and the realization of how it’s now turned into just one more nightmare for Canada’s electorate.
Sitting next to Audrey Mckimmon on her left was Liberal Party of Canada candidate Garth Frizzell. Now of all the candidates running for office here in Cariboo – Prince George I suspect that Garth Frizzell is likely the one who is facing the greatest challenge of them all. To my knowledge the Cariboo has never been that favourable toward federal Liberals and it’s only due to the fact that the Social Credit Party morphed into the provincial Liberal Party some years ago that we have any Liberal governments in the province.
While the candidates were milling about prior to the start of the forum it was Garth who came up to the media table and introduced himself and we engaged in conversation. He told me a bit about his past, how he’d come to Prince George about 20 years ago and has been actively involved in the community for the past 14 years as a member of Prince George city council. He told me that taking on the task of representing the federal Liberals would likely be challenging as it wasn’t like being a city councillor where your political leanings weren’t always hanging off your chest wherever you went and therefor it was much easier to work with the people and businesses and community groups. After our little chat I asked Garth if he minded if I took his photo and he was happy to do so as one can tell from this portrait.
When it came to the questions put to him his responses were, like all the other mainstream parties, status quo with, of course, the Liberal slant to them. A pleasant man and a good speaker like the NDP candidate Audrey Mckinnon, one is left to ponder why these younger folks would choose to represent the parties they do. Is it just a reflection of our system itself where the older established parties somehow are still able to attract the younger generations or is it the level of awareness of those who are now immersing themselves in the political process? Choice, one supposes, is the basic principle behind it all. If only that were the case for the people of Canada as well when it comes the mandates and Lockdowns and pending Vaccine Passports which take effect today.
The final candidate, Leigh Hunsinger-Chang for the Green Party of BC, was inaudible for many in the Legion Hall, including myself and so I cannot say how she responded to the questions put to her by the Moderator. Given how the Green Party of BC has colluded now for years with the BC NDP, one can only extrapolate and assume that her peachy replies to the queries didn’t fall too far from the NDP’s tree.
When it finally came to the summing up for each candidate the same two stand-outs addressed the elephant in the living room of Canada. Henry Thiessen made it clear that until we deal with the fundamental issues surrounding the present Covid fear-crisis that little will result from the election. The only one which I was able to capture in full was that of Jeremy Gustafson of the People’s Party of Canada. He was gracious enough to furnish me with his notes and this is what he had to say to the people:
“I’d like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for inviting me as many of my fellow PPC candidates have been excluded from debates. And I’d like to thank my fellow candidates for running. I’m surprised no one is concerned about the loss of our freedoms. You’re all terrified of catching COVID from me because I’m unvaccinated but you’ve had the vaccine and so you should be protected. You were all banging pots and pans at 7:00 pm for the nurses. They were heroes, now they’re going to be fired for refusing the vaccine. I asked them why, they said it’s too new and untested. You know what climate change and COVID have in common? They’re models and models say this might happen or this could happen. Well, it also might not happen or could not happen. And by climate change I mean the theory that anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the primary driver of climate change not the natural process of climate change that’s been going on for billions of years. You don’t even know what people are talking about anymore because they keep changing the definitions of the words. Like herd immunity, when enough of the population gets sick and develops immunity. Remember 18 months ago, “Oh, we can’t do that”. Now herd immunity only comes from vaccines so it’s OK. The government’s job is to make tough decisions, I know COVID is real, that people have died, but not enough to justify the devastating effect of the lockdowns where women are being used as punching bags and suicide, drug addiction, depression are now rampant throughout our society. The PPC is the only party standing up for your freedoms. We will end mandatory vaccinations. We will end federal vaccine passports for travellers and will cut federal funding for provincial lockdowns. If they want to lockdown it’s on their dime. So vote for the PPC, the only party standing up for your freedoms.”
And so it went on the evening of September 8th, 2021.
We are facing one of the most monumental tests of character, that we have ever encountered in our lifetime. The fate of Trudeau’s passports will show us exactly what Canadians are made of. This is a test of our strength, character and fortitude. A test that will determine exactly how much of our humanity remains.
We are talking about segregating a large portion of society simply because they refuse to inject themselves with an unknown, untested and unstudied concoction of Lord knows what. If this is allowed to go forward, it will open the door to a dangerous trend. The repercussions from this can and will be disastrous. The majority of us refusing, understand this. We will not bend, regardless of Trudeau’s tyrannical mandates, or whatever daily dose of madness he decides to present. Businesses will go under. People will lose their homes and livelihoods. Many will starve. Depression and suicide will be at an all-time high. Even worse, our children’s freedom of movement and their future generations will be controlled at the whim of a government whose level of integrity I certainly question. They will no longer live in a world where they have the right to express themselves without fear of repercussion or what view-points they choose to embrace. This is already happening to many. They will not be able to decide upon where they can go, what they can do or what is put into their bodies. Saying no to these passports is our last line of defense and it is critical that we make a decision wisely. It is our final chance to draw our line in the sand.
I hate to admit it but I was losing faith in the vast majority of my fellow Canadians. Everywhere I would go everyone was wearing a mask when the mandates were in effect. Maybe this was the goal all along. To make us feel as if we were the minority. Thank God my lack of faith appears to have been unfounded. I opened my Facebook page and I was overjoyed to find that I had been proven wrong. Thousands and thousands of businesses all across Canada are standing up and saying they refuse to discriminate against anyone, regardless of their vaccination status! The vaccinated, right along with the unvaccinated, are declaring they will not ask anyone to disclose their health information. They are not comfortable with the direction our government is headed in. No longer are Canadians going along just to get along! This was the last straw and they are drawing their line in the sand. Yes, these businesses are more than likely aware that discrimination is not only not acceptable, but also illegal. I am sure that they are well aware that the government was passing their dirty work onto them. They are the ones taking all the chances when the flood of lawsuits would ultimately come pouring in. They are the ones whose businesses are at risk and had the foresight to see the writing on the wall. Standing their ground and telling the government that they will not participate in these crimes takes courage and willpower. I applaud every single one of them! I, for one, will be showing my appreciation by supporting their businesses and avoiding any big box store. These big box stores, with their oppressive and overbearing attitudes, have made billions throughout this crisis while many small businesses were barely surviving. A good portion did not.
It wasn’t just the businesses that were proving themselves to be of noble character. I came across several vaccinated individuals stating they would not support any business who mandated these passports. They believe in freedom of choice and that every single one of us has the right to choose what goes into our bodies. I found myself very close to tears at times and my heart swelled with pride. In spite of our government’s non-stop news tactics to try and create divide, many vaccinated individuals were refusing to buy into it. This showed me that they are loyal to their unvaccinated loved ones, regardless of their choices. They will not stand by, while potentially, millions will be segregated and subjected to discrimination. They understood that this went far beyond being able to go to a football game or the cinema. If our government is willing to go to these lengths what would follow next? Will we be denied entry into a grocery store or a doctor’s office? With the track record of government lying about vaccines not being mandated and two weeks to flatten the curve this was a distinct possibility. Sure, Trudeau says he won’t force people to vaccinate. But isn’t the threat of being fired the same thing? I was hopeful that more and more people would continue to stand arm in arm in solidarity with their unvaccinated brothers and sisters.
You know that Canadians have now passed the test and are showing true grit, courage and character as they continue to stand their ground. Canada is a free country! For the sake of us all, and future generations, it is imperative it stays that way. We must stand united against any policy that jeopardizes our freedoms. It is my hope that more and more vaccinated continue to stand up and tell the government to shove that passport where the sun doesn’t shine! As for the countries that think Canadians are meek and mild mannered I’m beginning to think we just might surprise you, as well as our government. When push comes to shove, Canadians will take a stand and we will fight back!
