During his tour of Canada’s Maritime Provinces, I was honoured to have a conversation with People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier.

Maxime is perhaps the only Western politician calling for peace and prosperity in Ukraine and asks that the two warring parties continue negotiations to end the conflict.

We also talked about the effectiveness of Canada’s Senate in revoking the Emergencies Act, the defunding of the CBC and an end to all subsidies to media including advertising funds, the irrationality of Justin Trudeau’s and Jagmeet Singh’s measures on travel for those not “vaccinated,” and the prospect for the publishing of his book “Doing Politics Differently.”

757 – Putting freedom on the ballot

“I’ve been offside with public opinion,” confessed Ontario’s MPP Randy Hillier in announcing his decision to withdraw from Ontario politics early in March. Concluding that Ontario is being ruled “by the mob,” Hillier cited the sad fact that it was many members of the public “who encouraged our government to take these excessive (Covid) measures to allay their fears.”

As someone who had recently planned to form his own Ontario political party to field candidates in the June 2 Ontario election –now under way – the reasons for his decision to entirely withdraw from the political arena are chilling and warrant everyone’s attention.

“I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no political solution to what ails society,” Hillier lamented. “The only way back to a free country is if we re-engage with the public and help shape public opinion – help people understand the value of freedom.”

Hillier’s advice is right on the money. As Ontarians head into the 2022 election, there is a level of hostility towards freedom greater than at any other time in the nation’s history. Electorally, this does not bode well for any candidates or political parties calling for freedom, but at the same time it demonstrates the need to “shape public opinion – help people understand the value of freedom.”

It seems self-evident that before winning freedom through the ballot box, it must first exist in the hearts and minds of voters themselves. Less evident is the price that must be paid to make this happen. It requires those who love freedom – more than they fear losing elections – to use electoral opportunities to campaign for freedom even against the odds.

As things look right now, it may be a long time indeed before conditions in Ontario are Just Right to result in freedom through the ballot box, but it’s always the right time to put freedom ‘on’ the ballot.

In an era of massive violations of individual rights by tyrannical governments around the world British cartoonist, Bob Moran’s work has become iconic for the freedom movement. His artwork both pokes fun at the political elites while revealing their true nature as despots.

He has recently teamed up with The Democracy Fund, a Canadian charity promoting the cause of individual rights and freedom.

Robert Vaughan spoke with Mr. Moran about The Democracy Fund, his political motivations, and his influence on a culture in decline and in desperate need of positive imagery and inspirational humour.

754 – It’s party time for capitalism! | Mark Pellegrino

Co-founder of the American Capitalist Party, our guest Mark Pellegrino has set the terms from which to expand his April 7 discussion with Just Right co-host Robert Vaughan on video into today’s broadened discussion on the ideas and philosophy that drive many freedom and capitalism advocates: Objectivism.

Across various jurisdictions, the creation of political parties founded on freedom/capitalism suggests an awakening to the fundamentals underlying our political crisis. Most interestingly, many of these parties (including the American Capitalist Party) have cited the ‘Objectivist’ philosophy of Ayn Rand as a guiding light in the establishment of their own party policies.

However as one might expect, even among those inspired by Rand’s philosophy, disagreements and various interpretations of her ideas abound. Happily, these conflicting opinions actually provide a much-needed discussion of the principles and forces that drive our political zeitgeist.

In America as in Canada, there are a growing number of political parties seen to be on the ‘freedom’ side of the political polarity. Among them: various independent and libertarian parties in both countries, Ontario’s Freedom Party, Canada’s People’s Party, and of course, the American Capitalist Party.

“Libertarians reject an objective (universal) morality,” argues Mark, in citing how the American Capitalist Party differs from various libertarian parties.

In the end, which of these parties ever wins an election will depend less on their policies and platforms being Just Right, than on a majority of the voting public believing them to be right enough to support at the polls.

Trucker’s Freedom Convoy 2022 unmasks Canada’s freedom delusion | Salim Mansur

 Conservatism, Governance, Latest, Law, Political Parties, Politics  Comments Off on Trucker’s Freedom Convoy 2022 unmasks Canada’s freedom delusion | Salim Mansur

The Truckers Freedom Convoy of the past two weeks has lifted the veil, or the mask, on just how fundamentally flawed Canada is and always was. Amid the blaring of truck horns cries of “mandate freedom” are echoing down Wellington Street in Ottawa. Unfortunately, Parliamentarians are deaf to these pleas and if one knows anything of Canadian history, as does our guest Professor Salim Mansur, Parliamentarians have never had freedom on their agenda.

If one understands Canada’s Constitution and is familiar with its laws and practices then one realizes that Canada is not, nor was it ever, a nation of individual rights and “We The People”, rather, Canada was always a nation of We The Parliament, or We The State.

In the British tradition, Canada’s Parliament is supreme. It can, and often does, pass laws that violate the individual rights of its citizens. “Peace, order, and good government” is the mantra of Parliament used by Conservatives and Liberals alike. It is the motive for governance enshrined in Canada’s Constitution (Sect. 91). Contrast this to the founding motivation for the American Revolution and the structure of its government—individual rights. We The People, the first words of the U.S. Constitution, set the USA apart from every other nation on Earth and which still, to this day, is the only country founded on the principle that individual rights lie outside of government and that the primary role of government is to protect those rights.

Canadians often turn to the Canadian Bill of Rights (1960) or to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) as assurance that their individual rights are protected in law. In Canada, however, our individual rights lie not outside of our laws to be protected by the government, they lie inside of government, are limited by the government, and are often violated by the government.

The Bill of Rights is simply a federal statute applying to the federal government which has historically been ignored by the courts. The Charter is a document where peoples’ rights are bracketed by two sections (1 and 33) which, in effect, give power to the Parliament to override any individual right at its discretion.

As Professor Mansur expounds in this discussion, there are no federal parties in Parliament whose raison d’être is to defend the rights of Canadians. The Conservative Party often thought to be the party on the side of individual rights is in fact, as Professor Mansur makes clear, in Parliament to conserve the institutions of Parliament and its credo of “peace, order, and good government.”

“The Conservative Party has been conserving the formulation of the 1867 Act that is peace, order, and good government. (It) is not a party of freedom-loving people. They are not a party that has put the freedom issue at the top of the political agenda.”

A more robust understanding of Canada’s Constitution and how Canada’s Parliament works should reveal to Canadians that they live at the privilege of Cabinet. Their individual rights are an after-thought to the structure of Canadian governance and not a fundamental focus of legislation.

It remains to be seen in this chaotic and tumultuous time whether Canada will ever evolve from a nation of We The State and peace, order, and good governance to a nation of We The People and life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Truckers’ Freedom Convoy may just be the spark that ignites the freedom revolution that Canada so desperately needs.

Canada’s ‘fake news’ media has transformed itself from being the ‘mainstream’ to being the ‘mean-stream’ media. Even before the Truckers for Freedom convoy arrived in Ottawa last weekend, the ‘mean stream’ of misleading and false accusations made against them have offered the world first-hand evidence of the media’s hatred and intolerance towards peaceful freedom-loving Canadians.

Indeed, the sheer intolerance and disrespect towards those who have a different opinion exhibited by Leftist ‘pro-vaxxers’ stands in stark contrast to those labeled ‘anti-vaxxers’ or some variant of a right-wing pejorative. The latter exhibit no animosity whatever towards the former, and would never deprive them of their right to choose.

The Left, on the other hand, would deny the ‘unvaxxed’ health care, freedom of association, freedom of speech, the freedom to work, and certainly the freedom to remain injection free. They would segregate them entirely from the rest of those who submit to political mandates.

Trudeau’s unconscionable statements expressing intolerance for the ‘unvaccinated’ and the ‘unacceptability’ of certain political opinions have been met with revulsion and disgust on the part of those who value individual freedom.

Yet his fascist intolerance has also been met with an increased popularity in the polls, as has been the case with similarly intolerant and fascist provincial premiers. Thanks to the ‘mean-stream’ media, a majority of Canadians remain isolated from the truth about the lockdowns and ‘vaccines’ that are no such thing.

As inspiring, positive, and re-assuring as the world record-breaking event in Ottawa has been for those on (and in) the Right, Justin Trudeau and his paid-for ‘mean-stream’ media have been doing everything possible to portray the event as some kind of racist-fascist plot to overthrow the country. We can expect more of the same propaganda to come.

So far, it looks as if the Truckers for Freedom have done everything Just Right; now comes the hard part.
