Crumbling Canadian Sovereignty

I’m sick of people thinking politics is some sort of hobby, like we can just choose to decide it doesn’t have to do with our life, death, happiness and freedom. Looking at the mechanics that underlie our world is not something I do out of boredom. To me, it seems self-evident that we’re on this earth to learn. Learning and gaining experience seems to be what being human is all about. I don’t like reading words on a page/screen. I’d much rather create music or learn to paint but unfortunately, sometimes missing a week’s worth of news is like missing a month. Missing a month is often missing a year.
Few Canadians are aware of the true scope of the horrific G-20 event in Toronto last year. This event got very little coverage during the recent elections despite many calling it “Torontonamo”. There were agent provocateurs (cops dressed up as anarchists), $5 million spent on a fence, $1.2 billion spent on paying 2 or 3 thousand cops overtime so they could arrest and brutalize 1000 innocent people, many of whom were not even taking part in the protest. I even hesitate to say $1.2 billion. Who knows how much of our tax money was actually spent for security. If memory serves me well, it was originally stated it would only be around $170 million, then $300 something million, then $600 million-ish, then $900 million-ish, then finally $1.2 billion. For all we know, it could have been $10 billion.
It’s worthwhile to note that back when the H1N1 scare was happening the government gave dozens of body bags to some native communities. Why body bags? Equally disturbing and strange, it was found that the H1N1 shot caused a 300% increase in narcolepsy in children and this prompted some countries to ban it. Canada went a different route and introduced this mercury-laced H1N1-vaccine into the trivalent seasonal flu shot.
On September 29, 2009, an article came out from SkyWatch Canada titled Forced Vaccination and Quarantine Laws in Canada. That article outlined some shocking laws we have here:
In 1996 Ontario passed the Health Care Consent Act, which allows treatment such as vaccination to be administered without consent of the individual in the case of a loosely defined “Emergency”. In Quebec the Public Health Act clearly states: “Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, while the public health emergency is in effect, the Government or the Minister, if he or she has been so empowered, may, without delay and without further formality, to protect the health of the population, (1) order compulsory vaccination of the entire population or any part of it against smallpox or any other contagious disease seriously threatening the health of the population and, if necessary, prepare a list of persons or groups who require priority vaccination.”
In 2005 a new Quarantine Act was passed to deal with the transmission of communicable diseases by travelers entering or leaving Canada. Powers are awarded under this act to a Quarantine Officer to issue an order for a traveler who may have come in contact with someone with a communicable disease, to comply with treatment (ie. vaccination) or any other preventative measure (Section 26). If the traveler refuses to comply with the order he or she may face detention at a quarantine facility, until they decide to comply with treatment (ie. vaccination) or no longer pose a risk (Section 28). The threat posed by this act is diminished by the fact that it only applies to people leaving or entering Canada. Unfortunately there is a real possibility that the definition of a traveler may be expanded to include internal travelers (ie. everyone). The 2004 Public Safety Act (Bill C-7 (2004) formerly Bill C-42 (2002)) amends the Quarantine Act , and in doing so grants powers to the Minister of Health to make an interim order without Parliamentary oversight, to expand the definition of a traveler to include anyone residing in Canada.
The moral of the story is that our government doesn’t care about us and our government is clearly not in our control. Canada’s sovereignty is being insulted at breakneck speed. The corporate oligarchy is what is inevitably responsible for forced inoculation legislation in our countries, and maybe our complacency is also to blame. These insane laws, by the way, never come as a shock to those who are aware of the efforts that have been made to combine Canada, USA, and Mexico into one country and that agenda’s underlying motivation to further consolidate power into one global government. Dana Gabriel recently wrote about Canada’s degenerating sovereignty, noting a “U.S.-Canada perimeter security agreement” that would expand “collaboration in areas of law enforcement and intelligence sharing”.
To further illustrate sovereignty’s disintegration, as it has been repeatedly pointed out, Obama launched the war on Libya without congressional approval. For Obama, the UN’s approval was enough. No citizens in the US voted for the UN to make decisions for them. I never voted for Canada to be involved in bombing innocent Libyans. Recently, Ahmadinejad had the balls to point out the inherent flaws of the UN and many soon walked out of his speech. His talk of 9/11-truth also may have contributed. In addition, US presidential candidate Ron Paul has already talked about getting out of the UN as he sees it to be a threat to the US’s sovereignty and economic well-being. I want to preserve Canada’s national sovereignty. One threat to our sovereignty might be that we have a Prime Minister that goes to secret elite meetings. For the record, I wouldn’t mind if Canada left the UN too.
The so-called Canadian military is already integrated with the so-called US military, such that if a “terrorist attack” or “natural disaster” happens in the US, we could face U.S. military “helping” us out here and vice versa. This information slightly disturbs many of us who know that governments can now cause natural disasters and indeed do engage in false flag terrorism.
F.E.M.A. (Federal Emergency Management Agency), an entity that Ron Paul wishes to abolish, has proven itself to be completely mad, recently, when it turned down volunteer firefighters during one of the largest wildfires in Texan history. Rewinding a few years, back when Hurricane Katrina happened the area was locked down and guns were taken away from law-abiding citizens. Eventually F.E.M.A. workers admitted to how they had ambulances constantly coming to the work site just because they were so overworked and pressured to make these trailers on time. In the end, the trailers ended up being loaded with formaldehyde. F.E.M.A. also has set up concentration camps in many places in North America.
I feel sorry for anyone who proudly celebrates Canada day. There was a time in Ottawa, when you could legally spit on the sidewalk. Now that is not the case. There was a time when I could go for a bike ride without a helmet. Now, even in Halifax, I get threatened with a large fine for that. There was a time when people who smoked cigarettes could legally smoke outside at a bus-stop. Not anymore. The wind isn’t enough. A year ago I read an article that said that we have no right to have a lawyer present during an interrogation. Now our sorry excuse for a government is proposing draconian laws that say we can be taken for 3 days without even being charged with a crime.
People aren’t even allowed to have chickens in their backyards here in Halifax. This parallels absurd legislation which is assaulting food freedoms in the US. A year ago, legislation was passed in the US making it illegal for people to make jam and give it to their neighbors. They would have been fined thousands of dollars if they didn’t fill out the proper paperwork to account for this food “preparation”. Even after doing it their way, with the paperwork, a farmer is still limited to $500,000 a year, for some strange reason.
Do you think that sounds a little weird? Would you believe there was talk of fining US citizen $15 million for having a garage sale? Would you believe people are actually taken away by Child Protective Services for having their clothes in boxes or simply being vegetarians? Children all over the US are being arrested for selling lemonade . Cops ride horses inside a pub just to show you who’s boss. People are arrested and charged with life-sentences for video-taping police officers in public. People are being arrested for dancing. One woman was arrested and charged with 93 days of jail time for growing vegetables in her front garden. To be fair, the dancing thing pissed people off and a dance party successfully defied the dance ban. Similarly, grassroots backlash successfully got the charges dropped against the gardener.
It could have gone the other way. The people could have done nothing, left with their tails between their legs, and set the precedent for the taking away even more freedoms. Just because you haven’t yet had the tyranny come to your doorstep, that doesn’t mean that this tug of war isn’t constantly going on in your own backyards. People in Canada better educate themselves about what’s been going on south of the “border” because it’s a wonder that anyone, anywhere, would even think of arresting a person for dancing or for growing tomatoes or video-taping a cop. That, in and of itself, is a big statement. If you have that happening south of your border and at the same time you’re seeing the borders being destroyed, you should be asking questions. In Halifax, every bus has a sign on it proudly saying that there “may” be audio recording for our “safety”. One police officer at the G-20 in Toronto actually told a protester, “This ain’t Canada right now”.
There is hope, but not without awareness of the true magnitude of our dire situation. We still have a few crucial freedoms but we must be vigilant. We have become spoiled and we must reclaim our ability to perceive reality. We must pick our battles, go with the line of least resistance, take it one day at a time and act from the heart.
