Resistance grows – Global Compact on Migration
It was just over a month ago that the prospect of a Canadian signature on next month’s Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was raised on these pages. At the time, the Land had no idea of just how big the cow flop was that it was about to step on. Indeed, it didn’t even know a cow flop was just ahead. That is all changing now as your participation, in petitions, letter writing campaigns and calls to your MPs, have shaken the nation into realizing that an “international M-103 on steroids” is upon them. Problem is, this “M-103” will not just “quell” your free speech rights to prevent criticism of related government policies and plans but will pick your pocket to support the priority demands of an ever-increasing number of both legal and illegal (irregular is the term now) migrants.
The proof of the success of your efforts is in the pudding and the pudding comes in the form of political party statements and far-reaching social media productions. The People’s Party of Canada and the Christian Heritage Parties were quick off the mark to condemn the Compact. The Conservative Party hesitated at first saying there were no worries as the Compact was “non-binding”. They changed their tune, however, with your assistance and now decry the whole effort as something that must not be signed. We now have the situation where, if the Liberals go on to sign the Compact, the government risks alienating a sizeable and growing contingent of the Canadian population. Could this be next year’s “ballot-box” question if they do? With your continued help, I believe so.
By way of social media, Stefan Molyneux and Faith Goldy have taken the time to produce very well-received videos on the Compact. Stefan’s is long at over one hour but the first 10 minutes uses fact-based logic to utterly destroy the assumptions and false narratives that underpin the Compact. Faith’s effort is much shorter but features the same clear thinking in her “take no prisoners” style. Another article that delves deep into the underlying motivating factors that are driving the Compact onto the international stage is produced by the Islamist expert, Dr. Bill Warner. Please feel free to distribute these articles, tweets and videos as far and wide as you can.
Progress report – formal complaint against Liberal Party and personalities
Recall your participation in last month’s letter-writing campaign that brought Tom Quiggin’s formal RCMP complaint to the attention of the Canadian public. His complaint was exhaustively researched and alleged that the Liberal government, along with its agencies and personalities, were complicit in funding terrorism with taxpayer money. A very serious charge that met with mixed responses from political and security authorities.
In response to your letters and on the political side of the equation, politicians were quick to dismiss Tom’s charges and attacked the messenger while ignoring his trove of fact-based evidence. Given Mr. Quiggin’s well-established credentials as a court-qualified expert on terrorism, these responses reek of desperation. It needs to be noted that these desperate rejoinders came not only from Liberal MPs but highly placed members of the official opposition. One such response, replying to C3RF member Gilles (not his name), stated that his own review of the allegations led him to believe they were based on stereotyping and inuendo. “Nothing to see here” was the response and there was certainly no rebuttal of the specific, corroborated pieces of evidence uncovered in the complaint.
In contrast to this flippant, dismissal of the evidence, security authorities have been more diligent in addressing Mr. Quiggin’s allegations. The RCMP responded to Tom the same day he submitted his complaint on 09 October, 2018. Subsequent to this communication another was received on 24 October with an assigned file number and a notification that the matter had been forwarded to the “appropriate business line” with a “response for the Commissioner’s consideration” anticipated in the next few weeks. This is all to the good as the assignation of a file number obligates the progression of related issues. The wheels of justice may be grinding slowly at the RCMP but they are moving and making much more progress than that being made by our political institutions.
Now is the time to consider joining the C3RF letter-writing campaign if you haven’t already done so. Instructions and sample letters to the RCMP Commissioner can be found in the 19 October, 2018 C3RF update here.
C3RF Twitter highlights
This week’s theme-based twitter highlights home-in on the stunning reversal affected by Premier Ford through his rejection of a policy convention call to debate the teaching of “gender identity theory” in Ontario’s public schools. Ford’s decision seems to be a cave-in to leftist ideologues and stands in stark contrast to his electioneering assertion that gender theory was nothing but “liberal ideology”. It would appear that Premier Ford might not be the protector of free speech that we thought. How could he issue directives that call for universities to initiate free speech policies prior to September, 2019 on one hand and then deny a debate on “gender theory” on the other?
It would appear that Premier Ford sees tolerance as a one-way street. A street that accommodates the loudest voices regardless of the facts they bring to the argument. Alternatively, those who don’t sling epithets but bring heart-felt truths to the table are caught up in a cynical political game - a game that sees the tolerant pilloried by the intolerant. It’s almost as though the latter understand that unconstrained debate will allow the truth to come out and that the truth just isn’t on their side. Regardless, here’s a smattering of related tweets:
How disappointing? Premier Ford caves on resolution to simply debate the teaching of "gender theory" in public schools. Goes along with Wynn and Horvath - is just too dangerous to even discuss. Who made then the keepers of #freespeech?
Ontario PC Party passes resolution to debate suitability of "gender theory" teachings in Ontario schools. NDP and trans advocates assert the need for such studies are beyond debate. Just who are the guardians of #freespeech?
Ongoing operations and trends
C3RF continues to monitor and advise on the threat posed by the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration to your fundamental, individual rights as a Canadian citizen. In addition, we are closely tracking progress made on Tom Quiggin’s ground-breaking formal complaint on the government’s alleged support of terrorist operations with your taxpayer dollars. Other initiatives in our sights include the legal suit opened against the Ottawa Public library by C3RF founding members Valerie Price and Madeline Weld. Recall that this suit is a result of the library’s last-minute refusal to accommodate a showing of Michael Hansen’s film, “Killing Europe”. You may view a discussion of the related, follow-on film, “Killing Canada” here.
Please note that efforts aimed at preserving the fundamental rights and freedoms of Canadians are not without cost. For those of you who have recently contributed to our coffers, thank you very much. We cannot continue to operate and progress such initiatives without such aid. Having said that, we could certainly use a lot more of it from all others and hope you can contribute towards making a difference. If you are able to make a monthly donation, no matter how small, even $5/month, it will help us plan our finances and provide funding for a rainy day which is sure to come.
And while you're considering making a difference, please follow C3RF on Twitter, on Facebook and on our web site and share with friends our great content and a realistic outlook on the continuing battle for Charter Rights in Canada. Please note as well that we have introduced a new “twitter feed” capacity that allows you direct access to C3RF “tweets” on an immediate basis along with month-by month Twitter archives.
