C3RF Member Update - 29 May, 2020

Remarque! La version française suit un peu plus bas Note! May is C3RF Funding Drive month - see notice below! Letters – the new dictator The month of May has been a busy one for C3RF member correspondence. Happy to say that the vast majority of letters received have been of a supportive nature with many expressing concerns over the state of democracy in Canada. There were exceptions, however, and one in particular needs to be addressed here. I speak of the letter from Sally (not her real name) who was very distraught over last week’s seeming comparison of the Wuhan virus crisis with the holocaust. Sally, you see, is a direct descendant of an Auschwitz survivor and was left with the impressio

Remarque! La version française suit un peu plus bas Note! May is C3RF Funding Drive month - see notice below! The dictatorial impulse Does anyone else wonder how the high-minded notion of “flattening the curve” in the face of the Wuhan virus crisis became “flatten your Charter Rights”? How did an initiative aimed at providing our medical service sector with a few weeks to prepare for a possible Italian-style system overload become a nationwide “lockdown”? A “lockdown” that would go on to shut down our industries and balloon our national debt even as it would restrain regular Canadians, healthy or otherwise, from straying aimlessly into public spaces. Consider the following: Newfoundland and

75 Years after VE day, what is the current state of Canadian civil liberties?

Professor Emeritus Salim Mansur, author of “The Delectable Lie” and several other thought-provoking books on the social condition, recently turned his attention to the 75th anniversary of VE Day – the day the allied powers declared victory over Axis forces in Europe. In an extended interview with “Just Right Media”, he wonders what the “greatest generation”, the generation that won WWII and went on pave the way for a “Cold War” victory over the Soviet Union, would think of the current state of Western freedom. Would they wonder how such hard won triumphs over the tyrannies of their day were frittered away to the point that their descendants now find themselves locked away with their civil li

Recall the idea, originally floated by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as a concept in 2007, hit the twittersphere some nine weeks ago and quickly became the modus operandi behind our efforts to deal with the Wuhan virus pandemic. It mattered not that the strategy had no basis in hard data and could not even be considered to be a model derived from any real w

The Democracy-Despotism Spectrum – a recap Last week’s update reviewed the status of civil liberties in Canada given the various attacks on personal, fundamental freedoms over the course of the past five years. In doing so, we used a template developed by the Encyclopedia Britannica way back in 1946 when the world was completely enmeshed in extricating itself from the damage done by decades of despotism. The template proposed that

The Liberal Government 'Gun Grab', the Charter and Your Rights and Freedoms

Editor's Note: In this video interview with the RAIR Foundation, Major Russ Cooper (Ret'd) discusses the assault on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms through government overreach. The latest instance is Prime Minister Trudeau’s “gun grab” – the passing by an Order-in-Council directive with no parliamentary debate of a restrictive gun law that would deprive thousands of Canadians of legally acquired weapons. In Canada, gun owners are subjected to stringent background checks and no one outside of military or security forces can legally own automatic weapons. While the weapons that Trudeau wants to grab may look formidable, none can fire more than one bullet with one trigger pull and
