Traditional Liberalism is a political philosophy based on individual rights, consent of the people, and equality before the law. Liberal values support individual rights, democracy, secularism, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion,and a market economy.
Core competencies of Liberalism include:
— willingness to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one’s own; openness to new ideas.
— a political and social philosophy that promotes personal rights, civil liberties, democracy, and free enterprise.
To state that these values have eroded within modern Canadian society is the understatement of the decade. “Consent from the public” exists no more. Poll after poll reveal divergence between public opinion and government policy. Justin Trudeau has defied public will since the day he became prime minister.
Individual rights have degenerated. Covid-related restrictions are impeding individual liberties in unprecedented terms. The more that time passes, the tighter the neo-totalitarian screws. The latest progression being an invocation of the Emergencies Act to quell Truckers Protests throughout the country.
Brian Peckford, former premier of Newfoundland, was part of the group of lawmakers and politicians who formulated Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the early 1980’s.
In terms of the impact of the pandemic, Mr. Peckford states in an interview that he “cannot believe what is happening to our country. I am extremely saddened by government enacting measures that clearly violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”
Both a fundamental of liberalism and democracy, freedom of speech is currently under attack.The Trudeau government’s Bill C-10 and Bill C-36 call for internet censorship, including punitive damages and fines for violators.
On the topic of individual rights, no piece of legislation has impacted society more than the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In the year 2000, two Canadians published a book called “The Charter Revolution And The Court Party.”
“The Charter of Rights has transformed Canadian politics. The Court made itself the second most powerful institution in Canadian politics after the Federal Cabinet. Behind the judges are a well orchestrated network of state-funded interest groups that use litigation and the media to achieve what they can’t win through democratic elections.”
Here we uncover what ex-Liberal PM Pierre Trudeau brought to Canada. The result was a paradigm shift of magnanimous proportions. Special interest groups, backed by leftist lawyers, gained political leverage to push around the Canadian majority.
The phenomenon exists to this day If readers are wondering why, for example, the Transgender movement has had so much power, the roots are found Charter Rights. Pierre Trudeau did not simply pass legislation. He opened our Constitution, and embedded his Charter within. Brazen and bold, the public had no influence on the matter. It was a Trudeau-family speciality re-invigorated once Justin Trudeau became PM.
The result was the demise of the power of the people–an antithesis of the Liberal ethos. Being replaced with special-interest will–- the “sufferings” of minority communities being the primary concern. The Charter even went so far as to disempower Parliament. Our country was being controlled by the “will of the minority”– as advocated by the PMO and the courts(non-elected).
Pierre Trudeau had unilaterally transitioned power to “his people”– leftist lawyers, liberal judges, so-called suffering minorities. The power began to be drained out of traditional Canada– conservatives, westerners, Anglophones, Christians– and into the hands of multicultural advocates. In 2022, we see this manifest in the power of non-profit organizations to control the majority. Such developments do not occur in random fashion.
In 2015, the phenomenon went through the roof. The election of Justin Trudeau ushered in new Canadian society. Liberalism transitioned to what is best described as pseudo-communism. Seeds sown by Pierre Trudeau’s Charter becoming magnified as Justin Trudeau transferred Canada to the far reaches of leftist globalism.
Naturally, he cannot to this alone. A synthesis of government and media messaging paved the way. News presentation morphed into propaganda intent upon conditioning public for f liberal-globalism, or what we know as “woke politics.”
More was to come. Of any phenomenon involved, nothing can touch Covid-19 as catalyst for the new Canadian order. The pandemic provides an ability for government to control citizenship behavior as never before. It serves as justification for an emulation of authoritarian societies within Canada.
Don’t walk here, don’t stand there, don’t assemble in crowds(no public protests– just like China), and countless other restrictions. All of it conditioning citizens to behave in the same manner as citizens in non-democratic, authoritarian countries.
And most relevant of all– get yourself vaccinated. And what if you don’t? Line them up to join the maligned “anti-Vaxxer” community. Shunned and ostracized, these folks have become a 21st century villain community.
Let CAP pose some serious questions: Has all this “Liberalism” resulted in progression toward a free and democratic society? Or is the end result one of ramping up authoritarian control? Is it a coincidence that this developed in the six-year period that Justin Trudeau has been prime minister?
And what of the most recent– and most extreme– introduction of the authoritarian? We speak of the Emergencies Act— a government-authorized law under which banks can seize funds held in personal bank accounts.
How does one describe this condition– with the epithet “sunny ways are here again?” Canada–you have been hoodwinked. If not for media, all thinking Canadians would understand the true goal of the government of Justin Trudeau.
