Welcome to the wonderful world of Canadian Liberalism. To comprehend its transformation from what it used to be to what it is today, we point to a definitive example. The treatment of Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich is a political and legal outrage.
Appearing in court in shackles, Ms. Lich was brought in front of a judge who ran as a Liberal MP candidate in 2011.
R. vs McNeil, 1996: “No prisoner should be handcuffed in court unless there are reasonable grounds for the apprehending that he will be violent or will attempt to escape.” Not only was Tamara Lich non-violent throughout the Truckers Protest– so was every person who protested along with her.
Ontario Court Justice Julie Bourgeois denied Ms. Lich bail, having deemed the convoy organizer a risk to reoffend. Lich’s lawyer later filed an affidavit stating that had she known Bourgeois is a former Liberal MP candidate, she would have requested the justice to recuse herself from the case.
We turn to comparisons. On March 31, 2021, Haleema Mustafa, a Toronto-area woman accused of leaving Canada to join the Islamic State, was released on bail. Mustafa and her husband have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist group.
In August, 2021, Omar Mohamed, an Ontario man who travelled to Syria and called for attacks in Canada was released from prison on a terrorism peace bond. The Parole Board of Canada said it was concerned he might commit further terrorist offences, but he was released anyway. About a year later, police once again arrested Mohamed.
All are equal before the law? Witness as government wage war against peaceful protestors. What hath democracy wrought? The answer lingers in silence within our society. Canada’s democratic traditions have morphed into neo-totalitarian practices.
Who among us are willing to stand up for Canadian values? It isn’t Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. There are none among the Liberal Party. Certainly not mainstream media, nor our legal institutions. Add to it Canada’s academic world.
Not one has taken a stand against legal over-reach applied to Tamara Lich. Is this indicative of a free and democratic society? Is it emblematic of that which western democracy has to offer? Or rather, does it serve as a microcosm for what Justin Trudeau so presumptuously labelled “post-modern” Canada?
We contemplate the message Trudeau sent to Canadian society. It is basic in conception: do not mess with government. To do so is to risk jail-time without opportunity for bail. Shackled, humiliated, this individual will serve as an example of what happens to a citizen who goes up against Trudeau and the Liberals.
Rather than pointing to Tamara Lich rights as a citizen, Canadian media stand by every draconian government decision. CBC, CTV, Globe & Mail Toronto Star proceed to brand the person a racist, right-wing conspirator, and /or white supremacist.
Upon which government justify their actions as necessary to the maintenance of democracy. After which media declare that government are upholding the tenets of Liberalism.
Ironically, a search for parallels leads neither to democracies or liberal societies. Rather, affinities are found in nations so admired by our prime minister. China, Cuba, and various other communist and theocratic nations.
Media say nothing. Academia are silent as the lambs. New Democratic Party leader and staunch human rights advocate Jagmeet Singh has not a problem with the dynamic. Civil rights organizations and multicultural non-profits are good-to-go.
Why? Because Tamara Lich falls outside the parameters of those selected for insulation from prejudice? Ms. Lich does not fit into the “inclusive” model. She is not an immigrant or refugee. As advanced within “woke” society, Lich is a member of a so-called privileged class. Anglophone in ethnicity, Christian in identity. Why, even her femininity is not enough to save her soul.
And to think there was a time when social equality existed as a template for society. Those in the know recognised the ruse that is multiculturalism all along. Under the iron-clad rule of Justin Trudeau, equality has transitioned to a class structure best articulated by author George Orwell:
“All are equal, but some are more equal than others.”

I sincerely never thought they could abuse Canadian citizens this way, to treat them like prisoners of war in their own country, for no other treason than disagreeing with the Canadian government.
This is a dark day in the history of our country…
my prayer is for God to give Canada a reprieve, briefly and rain down plagues and sickness on ALL those perpetrating EVIL on this country. God bless Tamara and may God rebuke the disgustingly biased judge.
I’m thoroughly disgusted in this governments treatment of somebody that had the right to protest against what they believe was wrong. I watched her the whole trip across Canada there was nothing sinister a criminal whatsoever! Free this woman you tyrannical leader!
Americans are with you in this fight as we have political prisoners as well. let’s unite for freedom under God!
With thanks. We have a woke dictatorship north of the border
very dark and Amerika is already as bad or worse! (January 6th and unjustly accused…LoneStar1776.com and YearofJubile.com
This is no more an act on behalf of democracy, but an act against the whole of it on the part of the now deposed governments of Canada.
This is so sad, my heart goes out to this lady, my heart goes out to this mother, my heart goes out to this grandmother. Trudeau has to be put on national tv with a real lawyer, and drill the sob until truth comes out, how dare he does this to a lady, that is, in my opinion, 100% canadian, while trudeau is 100% for the Chinese,for the Muslims, and he is 100% anti-canadian. Can no one step up to the plate and take on this dictator-traitor?
that’s the problem with people nowadays it’s always someone else’s problem when you see a dictator it’s the people’s responsibility to remove him from Power by any means necessary Tamara Lich only mistake was thinking Canada was free for her to she was arrested because she protested the wrong thing she is nothing more than a political prisoner when a judge is willing to throw you in prison for protesting the whole system is corrupt and she would have never been thrown in prison if she was a member of black life matters or antifa it has been proven time and time again even in America antifa and black life matters commence multiple crimes vandalizes assaults people and they get released on bail and the charges get dropped that would never happen to someone in the right that right there says justice is not plaid fairly
The ones that belong in prison are the ones running this country into the ground. Let Tamara out of prison. She’s not the one that belongs in there.
Trudeau and his cronies should all be locked up
book of Revelation and the End Times ….accept Jesus and STAND!!!!
Prime Minister Trudeau, his cabinet, the lying Canadian media and the NDP have all portrayed this woman as a domestic terrorist when her only crime was to organize and participate in a peaceful legal demonstration.
Shame on you, Canadian Government, for acting like a third world dictatorship. You sicken me as well as the majority of Canadians.
and Amerikans…I hope!! We have January 6th and many falsely imprisoned! LoneStar1776.com
I think the author is incorrect claiming Tamara is anglophone- it’s my understanding that she’s full Métis status.
You’re right, my mistake
Wish you could have made this shareable so that as many Canadians can get this out there to show the people it’s about power over them that counts
Tyrant trudeau is making an example out of Tamara showing others what will happen if you dare disagree with him or to speak out with your opinion. Even peaceful protest is not allowed under his “rule” He is a self imposed dictator and he seems to have corrupted even the courts.
And no I did not make a spelling error on justin’s name. I refuse to recognize no respect him as a person so he does not get capital letters.
No one has stood up for this woman. You are so right. You named everyone except you didn’t include the Conservatives in your list. Haven’t heard any of them speak out for her either. God help us.
I cried during her last video where she said show love not hate, forgive not revenge. Here is a women who throughout the protest has only promoted peace and nonviolence. Just Trudeau you are showing you’re true colors. Ego before what is right and just. If not out of decency but intelligence think of what you’re doing, creating a marter.A prisoner punished for fighting for the betterment of us all.
Shackles. In my mind; I automatically see someone in an orange jumpsuit; standing before an American judge. People accused violent crime/real terrorism/multiple murder(s). Timothy McVeigh comes to mind. (Oklahoma City bombing.)
How did someone put it, “scratch a liberal and find a facist”. Clearly this statement needs a correction since the NDP are in the ‘liberal’ camp. So now: ‘scratch a liberal or ndp and surprise, find a facist’. The caring and beautiful patriotism of Tommy Douglas has been replaced by the snarling hate of Justin Trudeau throughout the NDP.
“Behind every Liberal is a fascist screaming to get out”
As an American I’m appalled at how quickly Justin Trudeau has plunged Canada into similarities to that of soviet era Russia! The very ideology that so many fought and died to protect the free from communism. Now Justin Trudeaus Canada is acting just like a complete and total tyrant. But all tyrants fall and he also will fall and when he does it won’t be pretty; he’ll be lucky to escape with his life jacket when that time comes. Rise up Canada! Rise up America! Rise up patriots! Rise up free men!
Totally agree! God will deal with Justin Trudeau and I heard the word “treason” used! He would have been better off to confess and tell the truth of all the corrupt and evil dealings he’s involved in! Buy he chose to defy God! I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes! “Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord!”
What has happened to Canada really d with the war in Ukraine they are turning a blind eye to Canada real problems. Sad indeed!
Yes, yes it is!!?! This is not the Canada I grew up in. It’s really sad to see how many people DON’T see how bad for our country and democracy itself this is. This isn’t freedom. Come on people this is really bad the government is over stepping big-time. Get off the couch. There’s so many wrongs being committed by TRUDEAU and the government pick one , let’s go people. To think this doesn’t or won’t effect you is nuts really. They work for us and nothing is wrong with peaceful protest.
Russel Brand made a.great point today, the fact that Trudeau’s own national security advisor, said no one listed as a donor to the freedom convoy, was a security threat to Canada. How is this not news, oh yeah as Mr Huxley says: Newspeak.
This is the worst representation of Freedom in Canada ever. And we are bringing in Ukrainian Refugees,??? What kind of disgraceful and disgusting justice system is this ??? Wow …Canadian Ukrainians are sickening by these people. 😥🇨🇦🇺🇦🕯🙏🛡
Trudeau is loving his freedom to do as he wishes with zero repercussions! He has not been challenged on anything from SNC Lavalin to the WE scandal to the scamdemic. When you watch parliament it’s like a three ring circus, everyone is in their own ring and the words just float around on deaf ears. What a joke, the words are useless, they accomplish nothing, this is democracy, ludicrous!!! Tamara Lich and the others including Artur Polawski, in solitary confinement for twenty days for what, standing up for freedom and following his belief in GOD. Oh wait, religious freedom is a thing of the past as is freedom of body autonomy and speech!!! Angry does not sum up my feelings in the state of this country, not proud to be a Canadian. Bring back Canada, land of the free, home of the brave!!! Let those innocent people go, throw the politicians and cops in jail and give me my money back for the terrorist you paid, Mr Trudeau. Disgusting!!!!!
I’m just disgusted by all this extreme treatment towards a woman who organized the most “grandiose” and peaceful protest with the outmost respect for our constitution. I can’t stop crying at the thought that my beautiful country has turned to CRAP ! Trudeau must leave !
Canadian media is state funded.
“The definition of fascism is ‘The marriage of corporation and state.’ ” – Benito Mussolini.
Today’s marriage of illiberal cultural Marxists throughout government with illiberal cultural Marxists throughout corporate media and the big social media corporations online, the big banking corporations and so on – essentially to bypass all lawful limitations on governmental power – IS FASCISM, by definition.
Virtually all Canadian corporate media receives very substantial state funding. Think about what that means. The big banking & financial corporations have become little more than tools to be used like weapons against those who instinctively oppose iron fisted fascism. Social media corporations happily work to CENSOR all “misinformation” which of course is easily defined as anything these “marriage of corporation and state” FASCISTS don’t like. The list goes on and your eyes are now opened to see it on your own.
I suspect there are huge numbers of people out there who instinctively know that something is terribly wrong, but have yet to put a proper name to the ignorant ARROGANCE that is so boldly running roughshod over liberty today.
That name is FASCISM. The marriage of corporation and state to bypass and effectively eliminate all lawful limits on governmental power. Know it when you see it and do everything you can to stand against it in every way possible way. It’s later than you think. FASCISM. Right there, in your face, pretty much everywhere you see that marriage of corporation and state being used to censor and silence all political opposition today. Tamara Lich is being used to set an example of what they will try to do to YOU if you rise up against this fascist marriage and begin to make a real difference too. They fear you so much they are risking everything to scare you, the common people, out of even trying. Do you already self-censor what you are willing to say or type in the public domain / social media online? If so they are already controlling you.
BREAK FREE. Or not. It’s up to you and how courageous you can be, or not. You can BE the hero you’ve been waiting for, simply by RECOGNIZING FASCISM WHEN YOU SEE IT and speaking up against it, and refusing to comply when government oversteps it’s bounds. You have been waiting for you. Imagine that. 🙂
Communism!!!! Good bye 🇨🇦. You WERE ONCE a great country. The people lost sight of your beauty and forgot what it is to be free. God PLEASE keep our land!!!!
FREE TAMARA LICH!!!
Wow,, my heart goes out to you Tamara. You did so much for us. I am so proud of you and all you stand for. Stay strong lady, the truth and freedom will come.
This is a dangerous slippery slope our Canadian leaders have led us down! Accountability is in order!
In the United States, defendants routinely appear in leg, arm and waist shackles. No one thinks anything of it. Of course, we are not like THEM totalitarian Russkies who display defendants in cages. No not us! Kudos to Canada for understanding the inconsistency of having people appear in chains in courts of law. Shame on Judge Bourgeois for emulating her craven judicial colleagues to the south.
The freedom convoy exposed a totalitarian government, successful in its WEF agenda to create a now existing mass psychosis……I for one have been shaken awake, am shocked to my core….”!! How can this be happening?!? Tamara is not a terrorist, she’s only accused of crimes the government has fabricated.They’ve bent laws and created a few new ones to unjustly deny her of her Charter of rights!!! Reoffend?!? Are they kidding?!? Trudeau has quite an entourage of willing participants, a mass psychosis following, weak opposition… if more people don’t soon wake up we’ll be in jail just for commenting the truth!!!! You’re in my prayer’s Tamara 🙏
This is just the beginning of the terrible treatment the far left is giving to this heroic woman, they will give her 10 years, long with the others,
Where are the men of Canada ? Lost your testosterone? This country is run by weak incapable sissy men enough is enough we are becoming a tyrannical communist country our rights are slipping away while we sit and watch and say this will never happen to me we for all those who are quite you are the problem
Trudeau loves the loss of male testosterone. Hence the luv of LGBT
OMG.. This is EVIL
I cannot understand WHY Tamara Lich is still being held.
This was a peaceful protest
PM Trudeau is the one who caused all the animosity and he who brought in all the police.
I believe it’s Trudeau who should be in shackles and have to answer for the tyranny that he caused
The government should be ashamed of themselves. And as for all the cops that were in Ottawa, I’m not sure how any of them can sleep. They all took a oath upon becoming a cop and not one has lived up to it. I’m ashamed to call myself a Canafian the way they all acted. Get Trudeau out of government…..
The first Rule of Holes. When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. But you see the Librano Crime Syndicate cannot help themselves, so self assured are they in their own superiority. I sense the influence of that odious little critter Lametti in this. By their actions, driven as always by their egos, they have raised Tamara to the level of a historic figure. Stay strong Tamara, hold your head up high. This too shall pass. The Bollywood Bridesmaid has awoken Canada. If I may quote Hamlet……. He is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more.
Tamara does not deserve to be treated with such disrespect and condemnation. She has only fought for the rights of Canadians. Her stand was peaceful. The request for a sit down meeting would of solved alot and would not have cost the tax payers millions. Ego won Mr Trudeau and everyone paid the price.
Trudeau declared the protest illegal because he had to quash anything that appeared as a populist uprising against the tyranical plans of the WEF of which Trudreau is a puppet and Christia Freeland is his handler. The globalists did not want Freedom Fighters to get the upper hand and start a world wide movement.
Tamarra and the protest were completely peaceful and legal but Trudeau had to demonize it to use the Emergency Act to bring in the goons. He and Freeland overstepped their bounds when they froze bank accounts. Now the world knows what these globalists are capable of if their plans are not stopped. Stopped they must be!
This is a disgrace, it’s so sad we cannot voice our rights. Freeland seemed to enjoy making these so called temporary laws. She and Trudeau are cut from the same cloth. l think they should be rename Mr. @ Mrs Justin Putin. As far a the judge , why hasn’t something been done about her. Don’t vote her as your Liberal MP…You’ll be sorry.
