What Are You Doing This Year?
How would you describe your political activity over the past 5 years? 10 years? 25 years?
What do you think of the political situation in Canada today? Have you contributed to where we are as a society? Are you happy with where we are as a nation?
As we walk into another new year, have you wondered if there is any way to pause the juggernaut of the liberalization of Canada to restore a foundation of freedom and equality?
Currently, CHP Canada is awaiting the results of the success or failure of the Judicial Review of Guelph & Area Right to Life vs the City of Guelph. We participated by serving as “intervenors” in the case. Were you able to participate in supporting this legal effort? If so, we really thank you. We can’t take on these projects without your help. Standing up to bureaucratic bullies is critical to the future of free speech in Canada. It also protects freedom of belief, freedom of expression and all the other Charter-defined freedoms we once had and then took for granted.
If your freedoms matter to you, read on. If you want your children and grandchildren to experience our inherent freedoms, then read on. In spite of what our Constitution declares, these are not guaranteed . . . we have seen those freedoms being stripped away. We need only look to the tattered state of our democracy to understand that we are in great danger of losing what was once so dear to us that we sent our soldiers overseas to help others defend their freedoms. That was when Canadians understood the foundation of our heritage and the importance of doing more than just surviving day to day. We need to proactively defend our cultural heritage and pass it on as a legacy to future generations.
What role will we have as Canada feels the impact of the passing of Bill C-4? In a representative democracy, such as Canada, we would expect that our elected representatives in the House of Commons would represent Canadians of all political viewpoints and protect them from the lap-dogs of the progressive movement. Yet, not a whisper of opposition from Members of Parliament about this highly contentious action by the inner circle. Can it be that our representative democracy represents only the political elite and not you and me . . . Canadians?
As a muzzled population, we need only look to our inability to speak against COVID regulations. Even doctors may not speak of their doubts about the COVID mRNA vaccines without facing loss of their medical practice. Has this impacted the ability of simple Canadians to make decisions for ourselves and our families?
Is this the security of person that our Constitution means when our government issues an ultimatum that we either allow our bodies to be controlled by the state or we may not work to provide for ourselves and our families? Is this justice?
Section 7 of our Canadian Constitution assures us that “7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.”
Look at our inability to oppose the ‘Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity’ (SOGI) curriculum. Our freedom of speech does not extend to cover that. Opposing the indoctrination of our children into a lifestyle that we do not support is something that our government will not allow. We are no longer free to stand against the well-oiled movement that imposes a very biased sex-ed curriculum on our children. Yet, there are those of us who believe that our bodies are the “temple of the Holy Spirit” and that we have a responsibility to honour biblical guidelines of sexual behaviour and purity.
Our beliefs have been discounted by our governments; we need only look to Bill C-4, which does not allow someone trapped in an “alternative lifestyle” to seek help leaving that lifestyle. Alternatively, someone from the straight lifestyle cannot escape the state-funded promotion of alternative lifestyles.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for Canadians. We can either walk away and accept the insidious advancement of ‘newspeak.’ Or we can stand up as a united front and say that we will not only oppose but we will drive back the forces that have decimated our freedoms.
Too many people over the past 25 years, and more, left the fight without understanding what it was about. Too many people were busy with life and chose to not defend the rights we once held so dear.
Canada’s Christian heritage is not about making people into Christians. That’s the job of the church. It is not about making Canada a theocracy. It’s not about denying people their right to choose for themselves whether to worship our God, another god, or no god. Canada’s Christian heritage is the foundation of our Canadian laws.
In some countries, laws are applied unequally. Women live under a different set of laws than men. Race, ethnicity, etc., may serve different functions in the application of the law. If there are exceptions to a law then there is no equality under the law.
Upon achieving adulthood, each person should be governed by the same laws. If it is illegal to assault one person then it is illegal to assault another person—any person.
Our heritage is that ALL are equal under the law. What is illegal for one is illegal for the other. The penalty for one is the penalty for the other.
This helps explain why Omar Khadr being forgiven for his crime of terrorism—including the blinding of one of our allied soldiers and the death of another of our allied soldiers—caused so much controversy in Canada. After having been convicted of serving a role in the war against Canada, he received a gift of $10.5 million dollars from you and me, an apology on behalf of you and me, a private meeting with our Prime Minister. All that for his role in aiding our enemies to the harm of our allies—we used to call that treason.
A different law for him than for the rest of us . . . this knocks the foundation out of our Constitution, which assures us that “ . . . Canada is founded on principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” We have laws protecting some of us more than others. If someone beats up any Canadian they get charged with simple assault but if they beat up another Canadian they are charged with assault plus other charges. How is that just and equal?
The rule of law is now unevenly applied.
CHP Canada requires equal application of the law. CHP Canada rejects the concept of treating certain categories of people differently than others. CHP Canada seeks to restore our foundation of freedom and equality.
Will you stand with us in 2022? Will you take some time from your busy agenda to join us in fighting for freedom and equality in Canada?
Join CHP Canada today! Your help is needed!
