My discussions on pornography in the past have not involved human trafficking, not because I did not think there was a link but because pornography exists whether human trafficking does or not. You can not just lump them altogether unless you address the elephant in the room that is "human trafficking" itself. Not all trafficking leads to porn videos, it goes down to street level, prostitution and sex crimes. If you want to address all of the tentacles of the beast then you must go after the head. Human trafficking. Pornography existed long before the levels of human trafficking that exist in Canada and the United States today. Pornography is the bastard child of the oldest profession on our planet.

I want to warn you ahead of time that this is a very long blog entry. It will include the embedded videos I am responding to for your viewing. Try to watch the videos in their entirety before reading my comments. The videos of Mark and Frank I was able to post responses to on their YouTube channels. The video of ADM livestream I could not post my comment. It was far too long for YouTube's standards. It is viewed below and I will go over to ADM's video and put a link to this blog article there.
Here is my response to this ADM video that I couldn't put on YouTube because it was too long.
OMG I'm in a Conservative stronghold with a Liberal secondary and I got 1,102 votes in the Federal election! I got 400 more votes than Max Bernier in York Centre! :O
Since this is about everyone’s experiences with the PPC, let me share what I can of mine without getting too in-depth into private conversations or material.
Back before I became a candidate for the PPC, and during my candidacy, I was frequently warned about the ulterior motives of Maxime and the PPC HQ. I laughed at comments that Max was a dictator and seeking a totalitarian authority over what was meant to be a “party of the people”. While I am still divided as to Max’s true intentions, I find that the Party itself is, as someone described it back then, little more than a “Paper Party”.
Last year there was a lot of talk about the need for a Constitution, not so much from the members themselves (candidates, coordinators) but more from the naysayers, ones like Shawn, Nichole, and others. There was that one troll who created multiple accounts and attacked a few of us on Twitter. I think he had 5 accounts running at one time that I know of.
As I was new to the political realm in this newer decade, I did not really question the inner working of the Party itself. I was repeatedly assured that everything was moving ahead as it needed to, and we all had to do our part to raise funds and get new members. It was always about getting new members and member donations with HQ.
So, as I said, I did not really care much about the Constitution and even corrected a couple trolls, like Shawn, that I was not the one asking where a Constitution was. I figured we would have one if not before then immediately following the election. I thought that is what the convention thing in Ottawa was meant to do, come up with all the structure from the members who could afford to attend (on their own dime).
We, as an EDA, were mostly left in the dark. Our local Rep was never available to answer questions so I would email to one of the ‘higher ups’ who would provide us with some guidance on questions. He and I also had a lot of frank discussions about some of the naysayers and concerns I had of a couple local issues.
All during the campaign my supporters believed that contributions made to PPC National would trickle down to us. They were shocked when we told them that PPC National did not support us financially in any way. I asked a couple times if we could not, at least, get the money generated by memberships in our riding.
My EDA thought that was a reasonable request, I thought, it was not even barely $1,750 IF everyone paid their full dues and I knew many were Free founding members. I asked HQ, through the proper channels, at least twice for financial support. Nothing. Our EDA was paid for financially by two of us. Justin, who had founded it, and myself, I think we spent over $1,500 between the two of us on everything from pens to banners to advertising. At least a quarter of that before we were “officially” an EDA. Yes, all VOLUNTARY all paid for by US. Not a dime from PPC National.
My campaign was paid for by me and donations from our local members and supporters (see Elections Canada website, we filed our paperwork before most of the other EDAs and National). Again, PPC National contributed ZERO.
And not only that, the PPC National, continued harassing our local riding members for donations, on top of what we were trying to get from them to pay for my campaign and the EDA operations. Countless emails from “Maxime Bernier” hitting them up for $1, $2, $3, and so on. I remember complaining once about that to the Regional co-ordinator who would take my questions. Answer from PPC National HQ – NOTHING.
I agree with Frank when he says that the PPC HQ attitude was "ignore it and it will go away". We had an incident involving an EDA member. I spoke to a Co-ordinator when the story first broke and I told them we should hit it head on and end any rumours. I was told HQ said to leave it alone and let the story die.
Well, six months later we're campaigning and a candidate, totally unrelated to our riding, was asked about the controversial story. It led to a day of frenzied calls and texts, and a statement that Global ended up pretending didn't exist and instead said "PPC declined to comment". After the dust settled that same Co-ordinator came back to me and said that I was right and we should have dealt with it months before. But that was the HQ policy, if we didn't come up with it you need to be quiet and ignore it and it'll go away. Nothing ever goes away.
There was constantly the feeling of a lack of leadership and structure. I do not remember how many times I was frustrated that our local Rep was unreachable so I would keep talking to, I guess he was one of the National co-ordinators? I am trying not to give any names of them because I do not have my notes in front of me.
This isn’t about naming names so much as sharing that the frustration Frank Vaughan experienced, and he was a lot better connected to HQ than I was, is very much real. And, in 35 years in retail, from pushing carts to running businesses I do not understand how an organization with millions of dollars passing through it could be allowed to be so disorganized, or clandestine for a public political party. But I guess that’s what Corporations are in the end, secret clubs where only a select few really know what is going on behind the curtain.
I will tell you something about Maxime Bernier and the West. Maxime lost the West. The only way he could have won it against the CONservatives was if he had risen up as a Provincial leader, not a new Federal Party with a leader from Quebec. I do not know how many times I heard, and fought against, that mentality. Not another leader from Quebec! Well, both Scheer and Trudeau were born in Ontario, so I don’t see in the end what difference it really makes where your roots are, or who you persuade to vote for you.
I am from Ontario and, culturally, we were raised to dislike Quebec. It did not bother me that Maxime was from Quebec. Who cares so long as he is fighting for all Canadians, right? The West, though, they keep shooting themselves in the foot. They blame the East for Trudeau and constantly bad mouth the East, even though many people in the East support Alberta and a united Canada. But it was all about the “99% of us” with our heads in the sand eh Mark?
The election came and went, and then everyone at HQ seemed to go on vacation. Christmas came, New Years, and it was just when Covid was starting up in early March that there was a little activity. Not much though, overall people were still left wondering where was Max and what was the PPC up to?
So, I think it was March or April that I started asking where the Constitution was that they kept promising us. I had filled out the, what was it called, the form the candidates completed anonymously on their experiences with the PPC process. I did not fill mine out in secret, I put my name on it and invited them to contact me for more information. PPC National HQ response – NOTHING.
I remember they told us at one point we should start holding meetings. I explained to them first that the dead of winter wasn’t a good time to try and hold meetings in rural Ontario, and then the excuse was the government was threatening lockdowns. It did not make sense to organize things and pay for advertising and meeting spaces (if we could find any) and then be told we were not allowed to hold a meeting. This was one example of how the PPC HQ had blinders on to everyone outside of the big cities, or even their office it seemed.
Around June, they called for a new Regional Coordinator for our area. I asked casually about it and someone sent me the job description, list of duties, and said if I were interested to let them know. I read over the paperwork, asked a couple friends, and after FIVE DAYS – TWO of them the weekend. I sent an email inquiring about applying for the position. I was told – it had already been filled by someone qualified who did not take so long to respond. … Respond to what? I had not even said I was applying, nor did they give me a deadline to get back to them. After that I had had enough, and, combined with health issues I’d been fighting with since November, I decided my piece of mind and personal health was more important than a Party that had left us IN THE DARK for almost 6 months.
Okay, this is supposed to be my notes on watching this video, so let me get back to it.
It is a particularly good question. Where is Max’s book? I mean, wasn’t that one of the cornerstones of his fall from grace with the CPC and another excuse that led to his leaving the “morally corrupt” Party? Granted he was right, the CPC is morally corrupted, any conservative party claiming to be “pragmatic centrist” should have their banner ripped down from their Headquarters. I was happy to have found a Party that was standing up for conservative, or even libertarian, values and was pro-Canadian nationalism and sovereignty.
Alberta hates Quebec because Quebec (and Ontario, and the Maritimes) was getting all of the Equalization payments. Martin, Liberal, was the one who included Alberta’s natural resources as part of the general fund contributions. I’m not using all the fancy lingo here, basically the resources were taxed, and the money went into the general fund. This was then paid out through Equalization payments to the provinces “in need”. Paul Martin set that up (resources as part of calculation), and HARPER did not stop it. It was ascended and passed and took effect under Harper’s reign. He loved the West so much he did truly little to protect it in regard to Equalization payments. Nothing stopped him from doing the very thing the PPC wanted to do, reduce them down to Zero. He had eight years. I think it is ironic that the West separatist movement was, at least at one time, led by a guy from Ontario. A transplant, not even a true Westerner.
The Four Principle Pillars of the PPC – Respect, Fairness, Personal Responsibility and Freedom. They had all but dissolved in the spring. Apparently the PPC House was built on sand, and in those months of silence most of the good candidates (yes, me included) gave up and left. It left behind the far-right, the bitter, the disenfranchised, the libertarians (real ones) and, quite frankly, the ones you probably would not vote for. Not all of them, a few good candidates are still struggling with the hope the PPC will be more than just words on paper. We all thought it would be last year, we honestly did.
Frank Vaughan and I both share a “personal responsibility” to our friends, family, neighbours, everyone we told that they should not listen to the naysayers, the trolls, the Communist Broadcasting Channel, Global TV Hate News and the Cee-no-evilTV news. We owe it to them to keep up the fight. To keep asking the difficult questions. To demand answers, from the Party OF the People. Now, myself, personally, I have moved further away from all of this toward my own hobbies, less stress, less daily attacks from the trolls.
I have a listing of THIRTY names I have been called in the last 18 months and I share it from time to time. If anything, though, running for the PPC did little but build up my strength and character. To be a better me when there are people screaming vitriol and hatred in your face 24 hours a day. I walk away from the PPC with that inner strength, founded on their failing, I guess. In the end, I win.
Let’s talk about this thing Mark was saying, that he and Salim are working on some great plan involving the PPC? Maybe? And standing against the Great Reset. I am certain that Mark has his own pet project, which I forget the name of, in which he can do and say whatever he wants. But I agree with Frank in that there will come a time when he realizes that PPC HQ will do one of two things, take his ideas and give him no credit for them, or, tell him to piss off in a nice politically correct way. The glow will fade and disappear, and he will see the PPC for what it has become, The People’s Party of Canada Corporation, and nothing else. It is almost bordering on a shell corporation at this point. It does not appear to be spending anything in the fight. It would have been better to register as an Activist group than a Political Party at this rate. The momentum to be anything greater is gone.
Maxime was terrible at the debate. I mean, I could have done better. I do not speak French so I would have lost there, but after 10+ years in Government Max does not speak English that well either. I do not hold that against him. I expected to be an MP and barely know enough French to read that side of the cereal box. I figure that is what they pay translators for, while English and French are the official languages, I live in a dominantly English-speaking riding and I’m not trying to be the Leader or even a Cabinet Minister. I just think someone trying to be a Leader would be far better at debating in both English and French.
If the People’s Party of Canada is NOT a Party of One (Max) then how is the open opposition of Maxime Bernier hurting the People’s Party of Canada? People thought Scheer sucked as Leader but the Conservative Party didn’t disappear overnight. It lost members because it was morally and ethically corrupt, not just because their Leader reminded everyone as a Milquetoast Boy Scout.
It is true, Max, and the PPC, monetized populism, but beyond that they do not seem to do much else. Heck even their monetization skills are lacking, one of the things I suggested to them was to set up a PPC Swag store, for the EDAs to buy from, thereby generating “fees” from the EDAs while providing EDAs with low cost mass production uniformity. Response from PPC National HQ – NOTHING.
Maxime was the first politician I wanted to meet in person, in my life. Second would now be Trump, but I know he does not have time for me like Maxime did at the immigration conference or candidate’s announcement conference.
And then there’s Toronto. York Centre. I said it when Max announced it and continued to say it, Toronto is a RED city. It is Liberal. Always has been always will be. It was political suicide to run anywhere in the GTA if you are not either Liberal or a very well-funded Conservative. Running for York Centre, Max lost Quebec, his home, and Ontario, because like Quebec we despise Toronto’s politics and political favour.
So, Bernier lost the West, he lost Quebec, and he’s all but mostly lost Ontario because we don’t like being left in the dark for months. I would be embarrassed, but hell, make $200,000 a year (pay & pension) and you get 642 votes. I make about $21k as a retail clerk (with a campaign budget under $2,500 I think it was) and even I got 1,102 votes in my riding. I do not have much ego but even I feel pretty damn impressed with myself after hearing how abysmally Max failed in York Centre.
I do not like Mark Friesen’s or ADM’s style when it comes to their videos but so what? I agree with Frank, if you want to do it a different way then start your own channel. I tried, for a couple months, but like I said I have moved on to other things.
The PPC killed the multi-million dollar and free advertising momentum they had after the election with seven months of silence. It was almost like the money flowed in, they paid for Max’s campaign (screw the rest of us) and that was it. No keep the tide going, no build on that 280,000 voters and 40,000 members. It was almost like they wanted it to flounder and fail? It is a “not for profit” by the way Mark, not a “non-profit”, there is a difference. In this area, the PPC was already struggling thanks to their stand on supply management. I mean, I live in farm country for goodness sakes! I did not agree with that Party platform point, but it was one Max stood on so much I tried to not bring it up as best I could. I suspect it cost me as many votes as I ultimately ended up winning.
I have, since June, and more particular since September, been calling for the end to Party politics in Canada. And yes, I was asked to run again for the PPC. I respectfully declined; it was right after being told I took too long to apply for Coordinator. Anyways, I am done with Party politics on a Federal level.
I believe now we should have 338 (for lack of better structure) Independent candidates. These independent MPs would then select a new Prime Minster (who I think should be changed to First Minister) by vote, based on merit. The Cabinet members would be selected from the MPs based on merit, and where close, there would be votes cast. The remaining members would be not so much the “opposition” as the ones who agree or disagree on things. The Cabinet members bring forth the ideas from wherever and the members vote for or against. No more voting along Party lines. From now on you vote according to what your riding constituents want not what the King wants. I think MPs should have 2-4 year terms max, then off 1-4 year break, then return (all by vote of course) for 2-4 year terms again before mandatory retirement as MP. Not actual “retirement”, I mean they just can not run as MP again. They would “retire” at minimum 60 like anyone else could. I would call for a cut back in pay to $140,000/year +benefits.
I think the Governor General should be elected. I think the Senators should be elected. And, recall elections, within 2 years of being voted in, for ALL political leader roles from Mayor up to First/Prime Minister. Things would be passed in House of Commons because they were the right thing for Canadians and the majority of Independent MPs agreed.
I think Elections Canada and the election process should be automatic and hands-off. No PM calling By-elections or elections. If a position is vacated max 30 days, then a by-election is called on day 30 to be held 45 days later, except in election years within 6 months of the federal election. If I had been elected MP the first thing I was going to look into was simplifying the Elections Canada processes and Parliamentary structure reform (aka election reform).
This gives candidates the 30 days the position is vacant to be prepared to register and run on that day the election is called. All automatic though, no approval from the PM. Just do it. If a PM loses confidence, then another is voted in by the MPs within a set period. We don’t vote for the PM now, so it won’t be any different really and your MP keeps their position til the next general election or recall within 2 years.
Back to the PPC. They kept pushing the Nationbuilder website, which is clunky, and who had $50/month (some EDAs getting bills for $$$$). I had my campaign site, cost me $12/month, and I had an EDA site, with a redirect that one cost us $1/month. And the PPC National HQ, who could not even give us our own members fees, wanted us forking out $hundreds each month.
A question, why is Maxime Bernier and the PPC National HQ afraid of answering questions of its members? Mark says you can just contact them, well, I’ve sent them four emails (one being that post-mortem, HA I knew I’d remember the name survey) since January 1st, and NOTHING. Heck, when the new “experienced” Regional Coordinator took over, he expected me to do the legwork for him. I told him to contact Justin and I was out of it. That was back in June and I was told in September very little had taken place on the EDA front. The map of proposed EDA coalitions, as it turns out, was almost identical to the one I had proposed and tried to start the ball rolling on with a couple of our neighboring EDA’s (who weren’t interested enough to bother getting back to me) a year earlier. Go figure eh.
Twitter, Instagram? And a YouTube channel with sound and video issues from day one. Hell even Rempel half baked on her living room floor did better videos than the Maxime Bernier Show in 2020. I have not watched it since the beginning of it, maybe it has improved, if it’s even still on? I heard even Mark had more Subscribers than Max at one point.
And Maxime, after losing his home riding what did he do, he became one of “those candidates” like Patrick Brown, who when horribly defeated in one place went to another where he didn’t even live to run. Though, I am not sure, was Patrick Brown from Brampton? Either way he went from Premier to Mayor, ouch! But Maxime, went into the lion’s den in Red Toronto to do what? Lose again? Get lots of donations, lots of money flowing IN, for what? Who is behind the scenes suggesting such a terrible political strategy, if not Max’s ego? Though at this point Max does not even need to be an MP, his paycheque still keeps coming in while having someone else spew out a tweet or Instagram pic here or there. I wish I made $200k a year doing that.
Frank said there is a point you lost faith in Max as leader. For me, that was June 2020.
On the topic of the Constitution, no one seems to talk about the fact that, before the Bloc uprising in 2019, Quebec wanted to re-open negotiations about the Charter and possibly join Canada. Justin Trudeau said No.
If I ran again, which I do not think I will for a while, it would be as an Independent. Party Politics is too corrupt.
I am preparing one giant article of my comments on this video, but I did get this comment back from Mark (when I replied to his video trashing Frank).
Mark Friesen: “Did you see the adm livestream where I asked repeatedly to get me in and he finally relented and brought me in?”
I sat up until 6am in the morning, watching that video, this one I am commenting on now, here’s what I see in the comments:
Mark came on to chat and commented at 1:12:54, ADM said a couple things and Frank said some things, neither of them invited Mark onto the livestream because he was not invited to be a part of it to begin with.
That being noted, ADM should have invited him. It seemed odd to have Frank responding to Mark’s comments with critickill thinker and ADM but not have Mark on?
I did not like the way ADM was badgering Mark after sending him the link (if I recall this took place after Leo left). It was sent in his Twitter, while everyone was on YouTube, and it takes time to jump around to various mediums. I will give Mark 2 minute grace on that.
Anyways, let’s look at Mark’s comments during the stream until he was sent the link and joined at 1:22:24 after Leo left at 1:19:57. To be honest, I found Mark’s request to join unprofessional and watching it unfold I do not feel that ADM “finally relented” and let him on. The entire process, buried in dozens of other tweets, took less than 10 minutes. Adding to that several of Mark’s tweets were shared on the main screen, hardly the strategy of someone trying not to include someone in the conversation.
It should be noted only Mark’s comments are below, to show he did push to be brought on five times. I don’t know what was being said in chat or outside of the stream, but verbally neither ADM nor Frank refused to add Mark. Frank didn’t have the power to and ADM may have responded slower, but you must also take into account dozens of chat comments and a conversation or response to main screen comments made during that same time.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Bring me on
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Whoaaaaa I never said I’m done with the ppc
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Negative. He has not.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*I challenged him to a discussion.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Bring me on.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Frank refuses me. Wtf are talking about
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Haha. No you don’t. Bring me on.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*So you won’t bring me on? I’m not hijacking anything. Your asking me questions I want to answer.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*I won’t have you dictate terms
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Bring me on.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Is this not a platform for everyone? Now I’m hijacking the stream? I’m just trying to be open. You wont do it.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Like what? I came in and said it was a good talk about the senate.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Haha. You guys are hilarious. My money is right here. Bring be on!
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*A loser? Never called him a loser
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Unreal.
Mark Friesen *GrizzlyPatriot* *FFCS*Where’s the link?
As livestreams go though, Mark could be seen as “hijacking” the conversation, HOWEVER, ADM did not invite Mark to begin with and I feel this should have been done. Both Mark and Frank had done their own videos against each other, this seemed like ADM siding with Frank and stifling Mark.
That being said, it’s ADM’s channel. If Mark wanted to have a head to head with Frank through ADM he could have just as easily asked ADM to set it up. Personally, though I think Kelly Lamb would have been a much better moderator, ADM is clearly pro-Frank which is unfair in moderating a debate (we get enough of that from CBC).
So that’s my $5 worth. Like I said I’m putting these in one big article on my blog with the embedded videos, probably tomorrow.
I don't know if I can condemn the media and government for the failings of individuals. The "government" does not exist without the personal responsibility of the individuals who are supporting this mob mentality that we must fear the covid Boogeyman at every turn. Be they government members or individuals stocking food in a store, everyone is at fault.
Stores, I walk against the arrows. They are a ridiculous waste of time. Someone walked against one the other day and apologized to me, I told her it was okay the arrows are a waste of time. So I'm supposed to spend as little time as I can in the store, but they want me to walk down 1.5 aisles just to pick up a box of cereal ten feet away from the main aisle? One aisle I wanted to walk down, so I turned my cart around backwards and walked backward down the aisle :)
You go to Walmart and the grocery section, pharmacy/drug section and cash are drowning in arrows, stickers and signs... the rest of the store is devoid of any signage. One could argue it is the width of aisles but the grocery aisles are almost as wide as the aisles in hardware or seasonal or electronics. So, covid spreads in grocery but not in toys or shoes or electronics? It just goes to show, again, the ridiculousness of these arrows and lines. I went there the other day and it looks like walking into customs at the airport. They have blue barricades set up at the front foyer funnelling people into one line to enter the store. I hope it's just a seasonal thing, but I doubt it. Walmart doesn't spend money on short term things.
Rempel, interesting to note soon after your exchange and videos on her she went through a makeover on YouTube, a lot of her, half baked on the floor of her livingroom rants disappeared.
The H1N1 influenza hit us as the Spanish flu in 1918-1920. It wasn't until 1942 that we had a vaccine to it. And now, 75 years later the influenza vaccine is still not effective in preventing the spread of the virus. I have seen, and I stand behind it. Every community who gets the "flu clinic" within 3-4 days there is an "outbreak of the flu" in that same community.
I think Trudeau will get his live, along with some migrants, got to get that minority vote.
The flu shot is ineffective. The media reported on the waste of $billions of taxpayer dollars for the flu shot. Studies showed the ineffectiveness of the flu shot issued year after year, that one should now start skipping a year between for the shot to work better. Every year we're told that the strains of the flu shot this year didn't protect us against the strains that ended up going around this year.
Because of all this Big Pharma saw they were about to lose money, and the Government Must protect Big Pharma's profits. And so, along came covid and the rapid vaccines that will be needed, twice and every year to "be effective". And yes, I had the flu shot 2 years in US and 2 more in Canada, it didn't prevent me from getting any more sick than usual. In fact, this year being the exception, I went nearly 5 years only getting sick maybe once a year, no flu shots. I achieved that through better hygiene (washing hands/sanitizer more) and eating better.
I would like to see a leadership challenge by Derek Sloan to lead the PPC. If it is truly a "Party of the people" then a leadership race shouldn't be threatening to Max or the PPC.
Vaccines being rushed, people need to read about thalidomide, first draft of SARS vaccine, and other drug disasters.
Complete immunity? It was over 180 YEARS of issuing the smallpox vaccine (mandatory) before they could call it "eradicated".
The whole "you people need to wake up" "you people need to stop this and that" and so on, I just saw one on the Rebel today, turn me off. I've said it about the police enforcing the blockades of places like Adamsons. Stop treating them like the enemy, they have families to feed just like you. The "Government" is the one passing the measures and orders. Those in government are the ones we need to focus on. Make allies of the police not enemies.
I ignore the arrows in the store, and half the people in there are doing the same. In some of the stores they are starting to wear off the floor. One person made a comment, I just said "oops". Another person apologized for going the wrong way and I said "it is okay". I think the next time someone Karen complains I'll pull a 90 degree swing and start walking backwards. I'm supposed to be spending LESS time in the store, not more walking down extra aisles I don't need to buy anything from just to get to the ENTER HERE line in the next aisle.
I wear a mask, after 5 months of protest, because I can now be denied entry to grocery stores, medical services and even work if I refuse to wear their face diaper. I believe a mask is OKAY in a medical facility, an old folks home, an international air/port and someone can choose to have masks in their home (particularly if they are immune compromised). Otherwise (and even in these situations) masks are USELESS.
I mentioned before you condensing of the hearings was an amazing job. And the things being said in them is downright scary.
These electronic petitions filed officially through the House of Commons are the only e-petitions that mean anything, the only other petitions that mean anything must include all of your personal details next to your name when you sign them. I tell everyone, if you want to sign an e-petition that means anything at all, these are the ones you sign. The rest are email farming.
That guy Schwab (sorry for misspell) reminds me of the robes the Vulcans wore on Star Trek:TNG.
The war in Afghanistan wasn't over human rights, it was to secure the continued access to opium and lithium. Opium, because drugs in the hands of "the bad guys" means money, money leads to weapons and funding terrorism. Lithium that powers everything around the world.
We talked about the Great Lakes forced flooding before. Now, in November, when St. Lawrence and Great Lakes shipping drops so to does the water levels. For the whole of spring, summer and autumn our beaches were GONE. A beach that was fifty metres down to the water's edge a few years back was under 2 feet of water this year. Global warming, climate change? Okay, so why now in November ALL of the beaches are back? Did the icecaps suck all the water back up the rivers lowering the Lakes water level? The flooding was human-made not climate-made.
Our local Medical official has spoken up a number of times against several of the covid measures including writing a letter to parents against testing children for covid. I had never even known all those months the stand he was taking because, officially, he was forced to tow the Government line. I've tried sharing the heck out of his letter, it's right here: https://www.publichealthgreybruce.on.ca/About-Us/News-Releases/ArticleID/656/Open-letter-from-Grey-Bruce-Medical-Officer-of-Health-Dr-Ian-Arra-to-Parents-Grandparents-and-Guardians-of-children-in-Grey-Bruce
We are in the dangerous parallels of Germany in the 1930s, the grandma suicide is just another terrifying step. "For the good of the people" you should just kill yourself. That's insane!
Mark's vaping and his eyes wandering away from the camera were two turn-offs for me. When I forced myself to listen, his words pushed me out the door. I know people who are not professionals, who don't have studios set up, who spend more time making nature videos than talk in front of a camera who still know that presentation is everything. If you look amateur you're treated like an amateur. Heck, I know, my videos are that way but I'm not running a channel seeking thousands of supporters either. I'm comfortable with my reality.

I love the fulcrum videos where you analyse the articles and explain them in honest terms.
My birthplace had a great little newspaper, after 100 years they were bought out and shut down, now they are a couple columns in a conglomerated publication. I'm surprised 2 newspapers have survived here in the town I live in for as long as they have. I know one has become a cut and paste publication with no room for unbiased opinion or news.
When we're talking about Freedoms to be and do, Peel region is now deciding for their residents what products in stores are "essential" vs "non-essential". Your shelves will be stocked, but only with the products your Government has approved.
What bothers me the most is not that there are votes for Biden or for Trump, it's that people care more about who won than HOW they won. It's scary how ignorant of the democratic process Americans have become.
Covid1984 is by far more effective than the Climate Change Scam could have ever dreamed to have achieved in the way of control, totalitarianism and the end of freedom as we've enjoyed it for 75 years.
It look 20 years to develop an ineffective vaccine for Influenza, it took over 180 years of use for a vaccine to eradicate smallpox. How can a vaccine passed in just months be trusted to be effective whatsoever without thorough proper testing over months if not years.
I will continue to believe my "conspiracy theory" that covid was first studied during and by the Chinese scientists who got "kicked out" of Winnipeg. Taken back home to China where it was weaponized in Wuhan. Then, perhaps, to be bought/given to the US government but instead accidentally released in late 2019 into the general population. This is a manufactured virus.
I just had it out on Twitter with someone today how the conspiracy theories get too ridiculous and if people learned to tone it down and stick to the facts we'd have a fighting chance.

I remember you discussing it back in January. I remember you videos and anyone worth half their weight in salt could easily search this website or YouTube and find your videos from way back then.You spent the time telling people they need to prepare to "stay out of the way" of the measures that were heading our way. You questioned the videos out there and demanded answers. While you were making the educated guesses our local politicians were telling us we were racist and xenophobic and telling us to eat in Chinatown. You never advocated for a general lockdown, you suggested that ways (masks) might help to slow the infection and avoid lockdowns. You didn't tell people what to believe, you presented the evidence and asked people to think for themselves.
I said it before, Trudeau, Hajdu and Tam are the three horsemen of the Covid-19 crisis in Canada.
I went grocery shopping and built up my reserves because of you! I grew a garden because of you! You... warned us and I took the personal responsibility and acted on the warnings... and all I can say it - THANK YOU. I continue to build up a reserve of food (which, if supplies never run short, will still carry me through the winter when the roads close) and we've already been planning the gardens for next year. You were responsible for the heads up. I was responsible for acting on it.
It took 20 years to develop an ineffective influenza vaccine, after 75 years it still fails to stop the influenza pandemic from spreading year after year. And we should all jump for a vaccine that is developed in just 6 months? The influenza vaccine makes Canadian Big Pharma $millions every year.
I don't have the updated figure, but a COVID-19 test costs at least $20US (which taxpayers are footing the bill for, over 9 million tested in Ontario already with only 2.3% coming back false/positive). It is a great way to launder money these days.
I don't know anyone who has had Covid-19. I do live in somewhat of a bubble but I do communicate with dozens of people around my circle. I do have a few people who "suspect" they've had it as far back as December. They won't get tested though for fear of having their lives destroyed under the scarlet letter of P (Positive case). They aren't sick, they aren't dying, their symptoms (if they had covid) were the same as a severe cold.
The "cure" has been far worse than the "cause".
I remember the movie "Frequency" in which a nurse catches an accidental dosage that would have killed the patient. The patient turned out to be a serial killer who not only murders her but several more women because he lived. One tiny event can change the future. You just don't know.
Manure is just one part of the "bigger picture", it takes a mosaic of different things to maintain the ecosystem, the left wants uniformity and control.
What amazes me about the left when they try and discredit us and puts words in our mouths. The Facts are all out there to see. We don't hide from our words. We don't try to claim we didn't say something when it is there in black and white. I believe the honesty of the Right confuses the Left. It's why I use the term "Liberal Logic" so often, it is a way of thinking that is not logical, and "Liberal Math" where in the common sense Right "1+1=2", to the Left "1+1=well, we shouldn't calculate that because it's racist, let's just say 5 is the answer because it includes 1,1 and 2 as 1"
I gave the PPC a chance, now I see myself as an "Independent" and if I ran again that is how I would run in a Federal election. I think I like the idea of working behind the scenes some time too, as you did, with the electoral process, just to understand more about how it works.
It's funny you mention ads, this weekend I'm going through and removing Google and Amazon ads from all of my sites. It just isn't worth it.

It is this tainted society of instant gratification, everyone wants that election endorphin blasted through their systems so they can go back to complaining about covid and Trump's latest hairstyle.
The Post Millennial just said Trump lost the election when the legal democratic process has not officially declared it so. This mess in the US is exactly why I think out Minister of Justice/AG and Elections Canada must be kept at arms length out of the reach of the PM. The processes of investigation and election must be automatic, they must be forced, they must be unchallengeable.
I screenshot Trump's posts with the blue warning. I take a red line and scribble out the warning and share the screenshot. :)
I got to add a few new names I've been to called to my list since the election. I'm up to 28 insulting and derogatory names I've been called in just 18 months. I don't let it bother me, I use it as examples of what level I should not allow myself to sink to.
Last night I asked someone for their suggestion, they spent the next 3 hours stonewalling me and "assuming" my intentions. THREE HOURS. They finally settled to a defacto agreement that we agreed on some of the points of the initial discussion (the name change of a school in Halifax). This guy lost the argument at the end by calling me the C word. Very low brow. I told him so and muted him after that.
I have always screenshot and archived everything I've publicly engaged in over the last 18 months, and Tweets I've begun to share those screenshots on Mewe as I delete my back-tweets often. I think Tweets should last 3-6 hours then automatically disappear. If you haven't said your piece by then it's too late to participate in the thread.

I was up until 3:45am, I went to bed around the time that Rebel News ended their coverage for the night. Every one of those workers who "went home to bed" for the night should have been charged with election tampering, The problem with mail-in ballots and voting in general is that each state has its own rules and regulations regarding the election process. A Federal election should have set rules across ALL of the states exactly the same rules. No accepting ballots on this day but not that day, no looking for postmarks, no going to bed. This is a major flaw in the US Election process, the lack of uniformity.
I can not remember what year it was, but I remember when Canadian media called a winner in the election and they were WRONG. And, albeit briefly after that, they made it policy not to announce winners until the Elections Canada station declared the winner first. I wish I could remember when it was, I think it was back when Mulroney was in power. It was embarassing to the Canadian media to have dared to make that mistake... my how the mainstream media has changed in just a couple decades. Now they declare a winner even when the results are legally in question.
I got into a lot of Twitter fights over the covid deaths and the Obama cages and how Trump was not responsible for either of them. I also dealt with the "conspiracy theory" of someone rigging the elections... but no one on the left dared to question the "why" and "how" the States just up and decided to go to bed and stop counting. In the key states where Trump was winning, before bedtime.
As soon as question was brought into the electoral stage that fraud "may" have occurred there should have been outrage and people demanding answers... not pretending it never happened. They have already found that dead people voted, 140 year old men voted, and ballots were not allowed to be properly scrutinized. Meanwhile... the media and Twitter...
I am still stunned that the sitting President of the United States was openly censored by Twitter on election night. I couldn't believe it was happening... until it happened each and every time Trump has posted since. It's insane!
I've argued with people on the left about this many times. If you are standing behind your opinion use your real name and real photo. If you are afraid to use them then perhaps you should re-examine what you are saying. Employer or not, you can have an opinion and if it is reasonable and fair you will be heard and Left or Right, if you are reasonable, you should be heard because that's what honest open discussion and debate of new ideas is all about.
Comments on Part 2 https://www.frankvaughan.ca/fpv-218-part-2-election-2020-can-you-say-the-same
While the Canadian system is better (election process wise), you might want to look at advanced polls and what happens to ballot boxes in between the days polling stations are open for business. As an MP electoral reform was going to be my personal project. There are things we still need to do. The electoral process must be automatic and at arms length from the Party in Power. We need Citizenship Voter Photo ID cards, if you can't prove you are a citizen then you don't get to vote (and yes, last year during the campaign I did support "residency voting", but by election had changed my position on that). We are clearly better than the US but we still have a few kinks to work out.
In response to this video: https://www.frankvaughan.ca/fpv-217-election-2020-trump-vs-biden
I’ve been saying since the project was announced in Toronto, they are indeed building Covid Concentration Camps, and if you compare Canada 2015- to Germany in the 1930s there are a lot of, albeit in modern form, parallels. I’ve been crucified on Twitter repeatedly for saying death is natural, and covid is just another thing we have to live with. Even bending and lying about the numbers they still can’t get “cases” up to 2.5% of “tests” and deaths are just 5% of that tiny 2.5%. Enough is enough. No “new normal”.
Zeitgeist did a segment on the Federal Reserve, creating money out of nothing and then loaning that to the people. In the past, and still today, governments like ours used omnibus bills to hide changes supporting globalism and quietly chipping away at the foundations of democracy. I’ve tried to point out that Soros is the face of evil but he is not the crowd standing behind the curtain. He is there for you to focus and waste your time on while the elitists slip everything past you in plain sight.
Nuclear weapons were probably the best invention ever, they have brought about the awareness of Mutually Assured Destruction and the importance of never choosing that course of action.
I said it back when they were negotiating the Free Trade Agreement, some day Canada, USA and Mexico will be replaced with the North American Alliance.
Trump’s “ban on muslim” countries, was a list of countries that Obama wanted to ban travel from. All Trump did was add a couple countries and push it forward.
On pedophilia and MAP, I did write this on my website https://www.ledicarusmedia.com/ledicarus-from-the-hip/concerning-map-minor-attracted-persons
The Hunter Biden story will disappear if Biden wins (keeping with that I’m responding to this video a few days after the election) but beyond, you’ll see it forgotten just like the source of covid (which in it’s early days I still think originated in Winnipeg, taken by the 2 kicked out scientists to Wuhan, weaponized, possibly for nefarious selling to another country, the US tried to get a hold of it and it escaped during the transfer. Yes, I believe covid release was an accident but it was well timed to push forward the globalist agenda).
Drugs – I think small personal possession should be minor fines with no jail, catch and release basically. Dealers on the other hand should receive the brunt of the justice system.
Voter ID, as I said during the campaign last year, I’m still for a Citizenship Voter Photo ID card for Canadians and ONLY in person voting.
If Biden wins, he’ll be “retired” or declared incompetent within 6 months and Harris will be in charge. Polls and polling are complete garbage. I have made it my mission every time a poll comes out to point out the “80%” is from a pool of maybe 1,003 people vs 40 million in Canada. Polls are NOT a reflection of the opinions of the country.
I pulled my hair out the other day trying to explain the difference between being “elected a leader” and “being a leader”.
If it’s any consolation, about being behind and catching up. I have 6 of your videos to watch and I’m not even at work still.
Here is a guy who is down on his luck, who is not asking for a handout but working hard to get himself out of his own situation. Along comes the draconian government to steal from his efforts to get the most minimum of standards in his life, a roof over his head.
Young people and women, the two categories that were demanding the Liberal government take action on climate change including the end of single-use plastics. Now they are the ones abusing the use of these plastics the most in the name of personal safety. Oh the irony.
We can't even properly recycle the plastics we collect for recycling! Why not put the money into building manufacturing that takes these plastics and recycle them into new products? Why don't we, at the very least, build incinerators that can burn these "terrible plastics" and turn them into life saving electricity? Before Sheila even said it, I'm pro-incineration in Canada.
The 3R's reflects this, reduce, reuse, recycle. Products in that loop are meant to remain in the loop. Reduce consumption, reuse consumption, recycle it back into the point of re-producing it again to reduce the 'new' products out there. It's like recycling tires and turning them into roads.
The generation X that Trudeau was born into was the greatest push for the 3R's... what happened between 1995 and 2015? Where did the 3R's go? Our local Chinese restaurant put take-out in reuseable cheap plastic containers. I can reuse them to store leftovers in the fridge, can't do that with soggy wet cardboard.
Trudeau isn't a puppet he's a wilful idiot.
What is the alternative to foam (recyclable) takeout containers, why paper containers of course! Now we can cut down more trees so the Liberals can finally start meeting their 2 Billion tree planting pledge.
Does the end of "single use plastics" mean that the pandemic will officially end in 2021?
We are not in a "cold war" we are defending ourselves against the tyrrany and murderous factions that are and will rise up over the next decades against the freedom of the western world.
The old woman who defended Hitler and the Nazis seems to have missed the decade before WWII when they tried peaceful negotiations with the rising fascism in Germany. And after war broke out countries occupied by Germany could do nothing but appease and surrender to the Nazis or they would be eradicated by them. I know Liberals are doing their best to erase history but she looks like she was around when WWII was taking place.
You will need Premium to watch the video. Spend the $80 it's worth it!!
My thoughts on pornography:
Online / video formats -
Websites should only have paid consenting actors who are 21 years of age and older. That being said, if two consenting adults over 21 want to film and share their sexual activities that's up to them (I would strongly discourage it however, the internet is forever).
Website access can be free or paid. I don't see the point in limiting access* it only encourages illegal trade and activities.
Access to 18+, though if the age of consent to sex is 16 you have to wonder about the age to watch porn in that case. If a minor (16-17) watches porn in the privacy of their bedrooms they might be less inclined to seek it out with a peer under the bleachers or in the backseat of a car.
I don't see an issue with the long standing marketing of sex and suggestive images through magazines, with the buyer age restrictions and the same requirements as online for participants age/consent/paid.
Guns don't kill people, people do. Video games don't make people violent, they choose to be that way. Porn doesn't turn people into sexual deviants, people are just that way.
Watching porn doesn't make you attractive to minors or children. That is pathetically lame-minded to make that connection. It's like saying "You like guns so you want to kill people"? That's liberal logic at its' finest.
Hey, I'm a grown up adult, I watch porn, so what. I've watched it with my partners too. I'm an adult, I get to do adult things. And I am absolutely opposed to anything of an intimate and sexually suggestive nature involving minors and children (as you've read).
I personally wish I had been more active in life to participate in those groups protecting children. If I had one regret in life, which I don't, that would be in the top five. I find it appalling that when you see instances of such deviant behaviour online there's no where to report it.
I once read of deviant activities on Facebook (though involving 2 adults). I reported the post - nothing, it called out and doxxed someone publicly but "does not go against our standards". The post sounded pretty serious though and I didn't want to just drop it. I looked into the local police to report it. Here's an email. Great. But no one monitors this email. What? Oh, but here's 30 ads, emails, websites, APPS, IMs and PMs portals on how you can rat on your neighbours for having a party during Ford Nation lockdowns.
I am a single person, what the hell else is there to do when the bars are closed and it's 2 am? Would you rather all the single people are out there stalking others down dark empty streets when they want to get their rocks off? I mean, that's what you think people who watch porn will do right?
If you are an adult it's your own bloody business what you choose to watch or read provided everyone involved are also consenting ADULTS.
Do you really think eliminating porn is going to cure sick minded people? Is that why you all want to take away guns, for the few nutcases out there? I think you will find the majority of people who oppose porn are happily married and their spouses don't like watching it or at the very least they have sex several times a week. If you aren't then you should be critiquing your own life more.
Admittedly if I were with someone I would watch porn a lot less than once a week or so but then would being intimate with another person in physical form not just be another type of porn? Are you not, in fact, acting out your fantasies with that other person and they with you? Should we ban that too, I think Trudeau wants to. After all intimacy leads to sex and sex leads to children (the wrong type, if you know what I mean).
Anyways, it's fine, you do what ever you want and let everyone else do whatever they want, all legally of course.
I believe we should legalize and regulate prostitution too, but that's another discussion (and no, I have never enlisted the services of such a profession, I've never needed to thanks).
And that's my five cents worth.

Think about this for a moment,
As of today, August 30, 2020 11:00 am (from January 14, 2020 onward)
41,935 confirmed cases (0.14%) (21,922 May 14)
Tests completed 2,916,275
Intensive care: 1,036 cases (633 May 14)
Hospitalization: 4,858 cases (2,779 May 14)
Deaths: 2,809 cases (6.69%) (1,825 May 14)
Total serious cases requiring hospitalization: 5,894 out of 41,935 (14.1%) (concerning is 2,809 deaths of 5,894 hospitalized) mostly seniors (May 14 cases over 60 - 68.8%)
Outbreaks in LTCH: 411
Outbreaks in Retirement homes: 183
Outbreaks in Hospital: 99 (492 hospitals)
For comparison only,
Influenza A causes about 12,200 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths in Canada each year. The influenza A outbreaks caused 219 hospitalizations, 103 cases of pneumonia and 60 deaths according to Government statistics.
In 2016, there were approximately 35,972 vehicle accidents on Ontario alone – with just under 500 deaths involved. Seniors citizen (65+) was by far the largest age group of traffic fatalities with a total of 446 deaths, the next being ages 25 to 35, with a total of 321 deaths.
Cardiovascular diseases caused 26,012 deaths in Ontario in 2015 (IntelliHEALTH). Approximately 900% of the number of people who have died from "covid-19" in 2020.
2019 Overdose deaths in Ontario 1,507 and ED visits / hospitalized 11,413. Approximately 45% of the number of people who died from "covid-19" in 2020.
No stats available for Canada, so we have to go with the US figures. "The list price of a COVID-19 diagnostic test varies widely depending on the hospital, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation analysis released Wednesday. It found that large facilities nationwide charge between US$20 and $850 for each test, not including the cost of the provider visit, facility fee or other services".
Estimating Ontario's cost at $58,325,500 US (minimum) or $76,396,781.29 Canadian (minimum) netting 0.14% positive results. ($10,695,549.38 Canadian minimum of the amount spent on positive results).
This has always been a hard issue to define with any legal and fair approach.
Let me explain.
If you are 18 and attracted to your 17 year old friend, "legally" you are a MAP (Ephebophilia). And if you look at the definition of MAP they've really stretched it so as to justify it somehow ethically and legally but let's keep it basic - a legal adult attracted to a legal minor.
I think, flat out, a MAP should be someone 21+ attracted to someone 17 and under.
And legally, if you are 18+ attracted to someone under 14 it's a crime period.
If you are 18-20 they are 14-16 it's a serious mental/social issue that needs addressed and possible crime. It's circumstances sometimes. I mean 16 is the legal age of consent. I can't destroy someone's life at 18 because they had sex with a 16 year old. What if they met as a couple 14/16, waited to have sex til the one was 16. So now it's a crime because one is "legally" an adult?
"Coming out as a MAP" should be treated as coming out with a mental disorder, and baring any illegal activity, they should be helped. Remember anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, PTSD from childbirth, were all things that would get you sent to an asylum 75 years ago too.
Being a MAP (under my definition) wouldn't be "being normal". You shouldn't be thrown in jail for admitting it but you shouldn't be praised either. It should be handled quietly between you, your family and mental health professionals (pre-Trudeau ones).
I’ve said this for months now. I am not opposed to the wearing of a mask, though I believe it should be personal choice. I am opposed to the draconian laws handed down by the governments forcing us to wear them. Not because the science supports them but rather because the State says to do it so you must.
Hi Frank, it’s great to see you back up and running again (at least technologically if not physically).
PPC – So, the financial summary from the PPC. Yup, I saw that $100k and thought what happened to his pension? That was the second insult after the first in which most of our donations to the PPC HQ ended up in his riding? I doubt my constituents were happy to hear about that one.
$100k isn’t much, it’s about $300 a riding, but that’s a lot of campaign signs for $300 – certainly better than the $ZERO dollars we got (we didn’t even get token amounts for the memberships in our own ridings that were collected overall, which I argued for back in late summer).
I think my campaign received around $650 in contributions from the public, $1,400 through my donations. Every penny that went in went to running the EDA and my campaign. I think the ending balance was about $40 and we are, of course, ALL volunteers. I put a lot more in that can’t be put in monetary amounts either (as you most certainly did, and understand I’m sure).
I can’t see myself ever running for the PPC again knowing the truth about how money was earned and spent not to ignore the months of silence where we were basically left out in the cold wondering what the HQ was up to. “Disappointing” is the nicest word I can say.
Netflix – I gave up on them in early 2019. They were producing such garbage and most of the shows were “Netflix Originals” and you know how great those are. I switched to Amazon Prime, costs me about $90/year, gets me free Prime delivery through Amazon (which helped immensely during this covid nonsense) and I’ll probably renew it. Between that and YouTube I have all the video entertainment I would ever need.
Garden – You definitely helped inspire me to plant our garden. Just in the last week we’ve filled half a sink with cucumbers, and a small bag of yellow beans (which is more than I expected after the pests attacked them). I have 2 big pumpkins forming, tomatoes, carrots, beets and hopefully in time peppers. I’ve already enjoyed 3 of the cucumbers cut up as a side snack. Most of the seeds were from William Dam (I think the tomatoes, beets and onions-which didn’t grow weren’t). I’ll definitely order from them next year and we’re planning a 50-100sqft expansion to the gardens. My wildflowers are slow but some have started blooming, hopefully in time to feed some butterflies and bees before October. Loved the farm videos from the both of you (and junior LOL).
I can’t wait to see the direction you’re taking your channel Frank, you’ve still got at least a few of us and your numbers will grow again before the end of the year.
Excellent video, to be honest, about the last one, I didn’t even bother to watch the leadership coverage. I knew my favourites wouldn’t win and that if I just checked in eventually Twitter would tell me who won – which it did. I would have, like you, supported Sloan 1st and Lewis 2nd. I didn’t like O’Toole or Mackay personally they just seem to much like what they’ve already got and the CPC needs to be torn down to the foundations and rebuilt. I think even the limp left conservatives are happy to see Scheer go though. They are starting to realize that Trudeau is in power because the CPC did not choose a strong leader and it has cost us all.
We’re up over 45 cucumbers now from the garden, I’ve lost count, pumpkins, beets, carrots, tomatoes are on the way. The bugs really took a chunk out of the bean plants but we’ve had a decent handful of yellow beans already. I agree with the others, your/wife’s videos and words were the inspiration for me to really start and maintain a garden this year. We’re already planning next years’
I’m still very disappointed with where things are at with the PPC. They asked me to consider running again should there be a flash election, I’ve declined. I believe there are reasons for that beyond just my personal health right now. Running as an independent crossed my mind too, but for now I’m pursuing other projects.
Have a good one.
Long video so you get a long comment First, I like the direction you’re heading so far
I have tried, as I did through my campaign last year, to strike a balance between opinions. Not a compromise, not a defeat, it is an acceptance. It’s like drivers licenses, I agree in the education and licensing of gun owners. I’ve expressed this opinion on my website. Extremism has always and will continue to fail as a tactic for change.
I’ve been on the fence with the CBC. Either defund it entirely and turn it into PBS, or, sell off the News division (it’s not like they cover much Canadian news anyways) and focus on the Entertainment side of CBC. This would eventually lead to private funding or collapse based on their quality. The News should not be directly connected to or funded by the government, the problem with the alternative is these big media conglomerates which are, censorship wise, no better than the government of the day.
Is Derek Sloan going to end up like Max Bernier? Stay on for a year and eventually be pushed out of the CPC? And then what, will he run for the PPC?
The argument I used about global warming was, back in the 80s we fought “acid rain” and “CFCs”. Now the developed world did end up banning CFCs but what about acid rain? Did it just go away? I don’t remember the #CCPV19 virus curing acid rain like it has climate change (reflective of the massive drop of the words “climate change” in every single weather related event on my planet).We didn’t fail you Greta, we stopped acid rain! What have you done lately?
I believe we should have calmly and intelligently encouraged mask usage back in January. Today it makes no sense, but as I said to someone the other day I don’t oppose the strategic use of masks but being “forced” to wear one is the problem. And everyone I say that to just does not seem to ‘get it’.I checked the #CCPV19 stats the other day. LESS people have tested positive for Covid-19 in Canada than die from H1N1 each year. I think in Ontario it was something like 40,000 positive out of 2 MILLION tests (not exact stats but that crazy small a percentage). Covid is nasty but it’s just like the flu for risk. But you are absolutely right and have been. Duck and cover!
I’ll be honest, I live in fear of losing part of my sight because of the substantial backup and delays of surgeries here in Ontario. Fortunately I’m at a point where things are pretty stable, but I’m at home on disability waiting for life to get back to somewhat normal. I feel for those people not as fortunate as me who have serious health issues and they’re basically being told to ‘take a number’.
Isn’t it interesting that back in January or so teachers were striking for smaller classroom sizes and more pay. I guess they’re lucky #CCPV19 came along eh? The ridiculous thing I heard the other day though, I think it was the teachers union, on the radio whining once again. This time they were ranting about Ford downloading covid measures to schools boards. The radio spot was declaring that the Ford government should be responsible for planning. Aren’t the school boards the so called “front line” people who should know the best way to introduce covid procedures in schools? Does the school board do anything except pick up a paycheque?
It took, what was it, 25 Years to develop a vaccine for the Spanish flu? And we’ll have a CCPV19 one in a year? Umm NO.
Obama, didn’t he win the Nobel Peace prize and then months later start a war in the Middle East (one of many conflicts)?
I said it with the CONservatives, and the same applies to the Liberals. Tear it down to the foundations, rebuild it, and then I might consider it. I don’t find myself “traditionally conservative”, I don’t really like labels. I think you should stand for what you believe in and what you feel will be the best course for Canada. Whichever Party that might be, that’s why I went PPC, hoping for change.
An argument I’ve tried to make when people say that Trudeau is a “traitor”. Maybe, but our government system allows him to do and say the things that have happened. I think we need changes in our Parliamentary system and should adopt some Republic ideals. If I had been elected Elections Canada was going to be the first department I was going after for reformation and change.
China has all of these little towns and then they build massive ghost cities where millions could live but no one goes. It’s crazy the way China has developed, it’s a model to the need for strategic sustainable planning.
The NDP wants a nice Spring bonus from the Liberals. The next election might come next Fall, but only if the CPC shifts the minds of Liberals against their leaders, or, and somewhat of a fantasy here, the Max Benier’s of the nation stand for the People and not their next Paycheque.
Trudeau has achieved his position of corruption because our system allows him to do it but more importantly we have allowed him to do it. Andrew Scheer was one of the worst CPC Leaders and this year is one example. As the official opposition, from January thru April he did nothing to stop Trudeau. He did nothing to stand up for Canadians.In a time when he could have thrown caution to the wind and he took the safe route instead. All he did was assure himself a comfy desk job somewhere, probably back in Insurance.
You’re absolutely right about Maxime Bernier (and the PPC HQ). You are right about the naysayers, those who spoke to us last year, trying to get us (who believed in the dream of something better) to see the Man behind the mask. Actions do speak louder than words.
The goal of Trudeau and the Liberals (and the NDP, Greens and who knows maybe the CPC) is to bankrupt this nation. Then go begging to the World Bank and the United Nations to bail and buy us out. China will be sitting there waiting for the Fire Sale of Canadian resources if we don’t stop running down the path we are on.
It’s my argument against the people who fly the flag upside down like they think it achieves anything. Our country is in distress but by dishonouring our flag and calling for help all you are doing is begging the United Nations to step in and take over.
If our leaders are not accountable we must demand better.
If our leaders are lying to us we must demand answers.
If our leaders betray us we must find new leaders.
Always question your leaders even when they appear to be doing what you want them to do.
When I ran for office back in 2005 I had the opportunity, as you and I did last year, to build on that wave of public visibility. Right after though I moved around, I pursued other projects like starting my own store years later. I’ve travelled across half of Canada. I’ve lived in the North. I’ve helped so many people without having the need for a title in front of my name like “Councillor”.
Heck right now I’m pursuing a hobby, Ledicarus Media Paranormal, because it’s interesting and fun. The dead are far easier to get along with than some of the living.
These people who sit in their chairs in front of their keyboards spending hours every day spitting out vitriol and hatred simply to boost their own egos. It’s disgusting. I remember that video of the one guy, Tommy Robinson when he worked for the Rebel, who went to that 20-somethings house and confronted him for comments he’d made against Robinson on social media. Tommy was just like, ‘why, what was the point, what did you really achieve?’ (ref: Tommy Robinson confronts Twitter troll). You said it, people don’t like to hear themselves being told they are wrong and then be open to having a discussion about why.
I don’t regret not taking advantage of that wave back then because I would have missed out on all of the opportunities and experiences I ended up having instead. Life is about living. One of my favourite quotes I’ve said many times “Work to live don’t live to work”.
What's next Ontario? Your phone reports to other phones that you tested positive for COVID-19 #CCPV19. (it's already pre-installed, all you have to do is either agree or download the new APP) OK.
And next, we move into the stage where you are denied access to stores and services because your phone has alerted them of your private medical status.
Ooh but it's "privacy-first," they say. Sure.
All someone has to do is stand at the door with the APP and track people as they come in the store. Probably identifying the person who tested positive.
So much for privacy.
Now you can turn around and go back out because "we don't serve your kind here".
And be prepared, next year we'll add "influenza alerts" and "hepatitis alerts" and "he appeared at a protest rally alerts" and "whatever else we want alerts" because you've already agreed to the spyware APP on your phone.

I was an environmentalist back in the late 1980s, it doesn't make me an Environmentalist for life, it just means I am conscious of my place in the environment. Unfortunately, what I choose and what the political leaders and corporations choose have two different objectives.
As someone who lives in one of the windiest areas in South-Western Ontario near over 150 wind turbines I can tell you 1) they don't run all the time, 2) they took months to make them compatible with the grid because they are considered to be "dirty" energy. The government of the day negotiated contracts paying 90c/kWh and selling it to consumers for peak 20c/kWh, then jacking up transmission rates and taxes.
Green Energy was an economic disaster in Ontario in regards to wind turbines. Why we didn't focus more on supplementing nuclear and coal with solar and wind on small scale I don't know. Why could we note give each property a smaller scale wind turbine or solar panels and reduce their dependence on the grid. Why, because of money. It's not about being green climate-wise, it's about being green dollar-wise.
Instead of shipping our recyclables overseas, if we don't recycle them into products, then we should burn them here in Canada in energy-generating plants, more power for larger communities through burning waste. Instead of having less people to have less stuff why not just have less stuff? Do we really need 15 kinds of bathroom tissue (ok, maybe during a deadly pandemic but under normal conditions)? Because there's no profit in that for the Ted Turner's of the world. Our problem is that we choose excess over necessity. We don't have to live without to have everything we need to live quality lives.
