Trudeau Again Forced to Cancel Campaign Event
That is great to hear.
I hope that he gets totally trounced.
Can Americans contribute to Canadian political candidates?
I don’t think so but I have not been following the polls
Keep up the good fight Westcoastjan.
Just an update from Winnipeg. Yesterday my wife and I attended a rally at our Provincial Legislative Buildings in support of teachers that were given a mandatory vaccine policy. There were approximately 100 of us there which was not bad considering this rally was done on a days notice through social media and at 9:00 AM during most people’s working hours. I talked to several teachers personally and heard many sad stories. Some of them will lose their house because they won’t buckle, others say they can survive approximately 6 months on their personal savings.
In the next 3 days we are attending 2 more rallies, another one in support of the teachers and the other being the Canada Day Walkout. In addition to that we will be attending a private “Town Hall Meeting” where people are begining to organize against this tyranny and 2 People’s Party of Canada Rallies in support of local Candidates.
I typically don’t vote, but the way I see it all 3 main stream parties have the same lockdown/vaccination policies. If you vote for O’Toole or Singh you might as well vote for Trudeau. I also don’t believe the tripe about splitting the vote. That is just used to keep us in the rigged game of their selected candidates and policies. Max Bernier and the PPC are offering a good alternative policy and now have 331 Candidates running across Canada (link below). Even if they only win a handful of seats this might be enough to throw a monkey wrench into the system. At the end of the day I don’t believe there will be a political solution to this crisis.
Hotsauce, I also intend to vote for the Convservative Party on Sept. 20 because they still respect freedom and people’s choice about getting vaccinated or not. Both the Liberals and NDP have gone off the rails on this issue. It would be scary if either the Liberals or NDP won.
westcoastjan, I know what you are saying, but realistically there will still be somebody that will win the September 20 election and if it is the Liberals or NDP, things will get significantly worse than they are right now. Please consider voting Conservative this time in addition to all of the other great things you are doing. That is the only party that has a chance of winning against the Liberals or NDP and they need as many votes as they can get. The Liberals or NDP would further destroy this country and that’s what will happen if the Conservatives don’t win.
Hi Mike, I do not believe foreigners can make political contributions, as per this article:
Campaign Financing Rules
1. Only individuals, not corporations, can make political contributions
The Canada Elections Act (“CEA”) is Canada’s primary federal electoral legislation. As such, it governs and regulates the process by which Members of Parliament are elected to the House of Commons. Under Section 363(1) of the CEA, no person or entity other than an individual who is a citizen or permanent resident as defined in subsection 2(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act shall make a contribution to a registered party, a registered association, a candidate, a leadership contestant or a nomination contestant.
I am sure people find ways to get around that. There are also contribution limits, which we also know are subject to corruption via various means.
Much as I detest O’Toole (I will never forgive him for what he did to Derek Sloan), I’ll vote conservative. Not that it matters, my riding has been solidly NDP forever.
But…a minority conservative government would be able to do precious little, which is what we want, because every time the federal government attempts to ‘fix’ anything, they just make it worse.
And it’d get rid of Trudeau.
Call me a cynic. Doug Ford is supposed to be conservative but he doesn’t seem too concerned about rights. I am pretty sure Trudeau will be elected again anyway.
Friedrichs_teeth, I agree that Doug Ford has been terrible throughout the pandemic. It is shocking the policies that he has implemented including aiming to limit people’s mobility as a way of helping to stop the pandemic.
O’Toole at least said he would respect people’s right to choose whether to get vaccinated or not and would provide unvaccinated people with other options to be able to board a plane, train, etc. domestically. If Trudeau wins again, he will implement mandatory vaccination for Federal workers, implement vaccine passports for all domestic travel by air, train, and boat, and get all of the provinces to implement an electronic vaccine passport system with the new billion dollar vaccine passport fund that he is touting. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if he also started relentlessly encouraging employers to do mandatory vaccinations of their employees, even though that is illegal.
That is why I am voting for O’Toole. I think unvaccinated people will be able to not have to worry so much about rights being taken away if he wins. It may not be the best option but in my mind it’s the only option with a viable chance of stopping Trudeau from the insane measures he wants to implement. I’m sure the NDP would be even worse and no other party stands a chance of winning.
I fell for that, “don’t divide the vote stuff last election” and the Tories had a crappy leader then and they still do now. They couldn’t drag it over the finish line. I am voting ppc. I live in a heavily tory riding anyhow. So my vote won’t matter but I believe that tory leadership is cooking the books on the leadership race. They use dominion voting systems on the conservative leadership race. And the last two races were a last minute win away from a populist leader given to a tool.
This election will be rigged the way all other elections are, and always have been. In the West they give us elections to provide us with an illusion of participatory democracy. If anyone thinks that the entire system is not corrupt and politicians are not beholden to their corporate / globalist puppet masters then you are naive.
Rocco Galati, the lawyer leading the constitutional legal challenge against BC and Canada said that he has not voted since he was called to the bar decades ago. He readily says the system is corrupt and casting a vote means you are supporting the continuation of said system. This is something everyone needs to consider.
Revolutions are started through mass non-compliance. The seeds of revolution are being / have been planted. I intend to nurture those seeds as much as possible. I want to see this system of governance abolished and power returned to the people, where it rightly belongs.
