Crumbling Canadian Sovereignty

I’m sick of people thinking politics is some sort of hobby, like we can just choose to decide it doesn’t have to do with our life, death, happiness and freedom. Looking at the mechanics that underlie our world is not something I do out of boredom. To me, it seems self-evident that we’re on this earth to learn. Learning and gaining experience seems to be what being human is all about. I don’t like reading words on a page/screen. I’d much rather create music or learn to paint, bu,t unfortunately, sometimes missing a week’s worth of news is like missing a month. Missing a month is often missing a year.

Few Canadians are aware of the true scope of the horrific G-20 event in Toronto last year. This event got very little coverage during the recent elections despite many calling it “Torontonamo”. There were agent provocateurs (cops dressed up as anarchists), $5 million spent on a fence, $1.2 billion spent on paying two- or three-thousand cops overtime so they could arrest and brutalize 1000 innocent people, many of whom were not even taking part in the protest. I even hesitate to say $1.2 billion. Who knows how much of our tax money was actually spent for security. If memory serves me well, it was originally stated it would only be around $170 million, then $300 something million, then $600 million-ish, then $900 million-ish, then finally $1.2 billion. For all we know, it could have been $10 billion.

It’s worthwhile to note that back when the H1N1 scare was happening the government gave dozens of body bags to some native communities. Why body bags? Equally disturbing and strange, it was found that the H1N1 shot caused a 300% increase in narcolepsy in children and this prompted some countries to ban it. Canada went a different route and introduced this mercury-laced H1N1-vaccine into the trivalent seasonal flu shot.

On September 29, 2009, an article came out from SkyWatch Canada titled Forced Vaccination and Quarantine Laws in Canada. That article outlined some shocking laws we have here:

In 1996 Ontario passed the Health Care Consent Act, which allows treatment such as vaccination to be administered without consent of the individual in the case of a loosely defined “Emergency”. In Quebec the Public Health Act clearly states: “Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, while the public health emergency is in effect, the Government or the Minister, if he or she has been so empowered, may, without delay and without further formality, to protect the health of the population, (1) order compulsory vaccination of the entire population or any part of it against smallpox or any other contagious disease seriously threatening the health of the population and, if necessary, prepare a list of persons or groups who require priority vaccination. ”

In 2005 a new Quarantine Act was passed to deal with the transmission of communicable diseases by travelers entering or leaving Canada. Powers are awarded under this act to a Quarantine Officer to issue an order for a traveler who may have come in contact with someone with a communicable disease, to comply with treatment (ie. vaccination) or any other preventative measure (Section 26). If the traveler refuses to comply with the order he or she may face detention at a quarantine facility, until they decide to comply with treatment (ie. vaccination) or no longer pose a risk (Section 28). The threat posed by this act is diminished by the fact that it only applies to people leaving or entering Canada. Unfortunately there is a real possibility that the definition of a traveler may be expanded to include internal travelers (ie. everyone). The 2004 Public Safety Act (Bill C-7 (2004) formerly Bill C-42 (2002)) amends the Quarantine Act , and in doing so grants powers to the Minister of Health to make an interim order without Parliamentary oversight, to expand the definition of a traveler to include anyone residing in Canada.
The moral of the story is that our government doesn’t care about us, and our government is clearly not under our control. Canada’s sovereignty is being insulted at breakneck speed. The corporate oligarchy is what is inevitably responsible for forced inoculation legislation in our country, and maybe our complacency is also to blame. These insane laws, by the way, never come as a shock to those who are aware of the efforts that have been made to combine Canada, USA, and Mexico into one country and that agenda’s underlying motivation to further consolidate power into one global government. Dana Gabriel recently wrote about Canada’s degenerating sovereignty, noting a “U.S.-Canada perimeter security agreement” that would expand “collaboration in areas of law enforcement and intelligence sharing”.

To further illustrate sovereignty’s disintegration, as it has been repeatedly pointed out, Obama launched the war on Libya without congressional approval. For Obama, the UN’s approval was enough. No citizens in the US voted for the UN to make decisions for them. I never voted for Canada to be involved in bombing innocent Libyans. Recently, Ahmadinejad had the balls to point out the inherent flaws of the United Nations, and many soon walked out of his speech. His talk of 9/11-truth also may have contributed. In addition, US presidential candidate Ron Paul has already talked about getting out of the UN as he sees it to be a threat to the US’s sovereignty and economic well-being. I want to preserve Canada’s national sovereignty. One threat to our sovereignty might be that we have a Prime Minister that goes to secret elite meetings. For the record, I wouldn’t mind if Canada left the UN too.

The so-called Canadian military is already integrated with the so-called US military, such that if a “terrorist attack” or “natural disaster” happens in the US, we could face U.S. military “helping” us out here and vice versa. This information slightly disturbs many of us who know that governments can now cause natural disasters and indeed do engage in false flag terrorism.

F.E.M.A. (Federal Emergency Management Agency), an entity that Ron Paul wishes to abolish, has proven itself to be completely mad, recently, when it turned down volunteer firefighters during one of the largest wildfires in Texas history. Rewinding a few years, back when Hurricane Katrina happened, the area was locked down and guns were taken away from law-abiding citizens. Eventually F.E.M.A. workers admitted to how they had ambulances constantly coming to the work site just because they were so overworked and pressured to make these trailers on time. In the end, the trailers ended up being loaded with formaldehyde. F.E.M.A. also has set up concentration camps in many places in North America.

I feel sorry for anyone who proudly celebrates Canada day. There was a time in Ottawa, when you could legally spit on the sidewalk. Now that is not the case. There was a time when I could go for a bike ride without a helmet. Now, even in Halifax, I get threatened with a large fine for that. There was a time when people who smoked cigarettes could legally smoke outside at a bus-stop. Not anymore. The wind isn’t enough. A year ago I read an article that said that we have no right to have a lawyer present during an interrogation. Now our sorry excuse for a government is proposing draconian laws that say we can be taken for 3 days without even being charged with a crime.

People aren’t even allowed to have chickens in their backyards here in Halifax. This parallels absurd legislation which is assaulting food freedoms in the United States. A year ago, legislation was passed in the US making it illegal for people to make jam and give it to their neighbors. They would have been fined thousands of dollars if they didn’t fill out the proper paperwork to account for this food “preparation”. Even after doing it their way, with the paperwork, a farmer is still limited to $500,000 a year, for some strange reason.

Do you think that sounds a little weird? Would you believe there was talk of fining a US citizen $15 million for having a garage sale? Would you believe people are actually taken away by Child Protective Services for having their clothes in boxes or simply being vegetarians? Children all over the US are being arrested for selling lemonade . Cops ride horses inside a pub just to show you who’s boss. People are arrested and charged with life-sentences for video-taping police officers in public. People are being arrested for dancing. One woman was arrested and charged with 93 days of jail time for growing vegetables in her front garden. To be fair, the dancing thing pissed people off and a dance party successfully defied the dance ban. Similarly, grassroots backlash successfully got the charges dropped against the gardener.

It could have gone the other way. The people could have done nothing, left with their tails between their legs, and set the precedent for the taking away even more freedoms. Just because you haven’t yet had the tyranny come to your doorstep, that doesn’t mean that this tug of war isn’t constantly going on in your own backyards. People in Canada better educate themselves about what’s been going on south of the “border” because it’s a wonder that anyone, anywhere, would even think of arresting a person for dancing or for growing tomatoes or videotaping a cop. That, in and of itself, is a big statement. If you have that happening south of your border, and at the same time you’re seeing the borders being destroyed, you should be asking questions. In Halifax, every bus has a sign on it proudly saying that there “may” be audio recording for our “safety”. One police officer at the G-20 in Toronto actually told a protestor, “This ain’t Canada right now”.

There is hope, but not without awareness of the true magnitude of our dire situation. We still have a few crucial freedoms, but we must be vigilant. We have become spoiled and we must reclaim our ability to perceive reality. We must pick our battles, go with the line of least resistance, take it one day at a time and act from the heart.

Canada has never in its entire history ever been a sovreign nation. It simply ceased being a franchise of the bank of England and became a franchise of the federal reserve bank of new york

I agree with your article! I am one of those few Canadians who have been watching all of these events very closely, since before 9/11, but especially afterwards. From NAFTA, SPP, Deep Harmonization, Fortress North America, etc Canadians are in for a seriously big change one day soon. Problem is no one cares or wants to hear it. Canada is a great experiment, wonderfully produced and executed. An apathetic citizenry who are far too concerned with consumerism than they are anything else.

I live in Vancouver and I can tell you its a lost cause. People here lost their empathy and common sense a long time ago. The 2010 Olympics is a perfect example of this. Activist jailed, insane security budgets, police brutality, and a debt that we will be paying off for decades. If you even try to protest here, the average citizen freaks out on you, we are our own best police force in BC.

What I love about this ' article' is that the author spends most of the time railing about what's happening down south, and only gets back to slagging on Canada when it suits him...Re the G20: I have no problem, whatsoever, with the cops cracking the heads of those oh so brave ' protesters' who wore scarves and smashed up the businesses along the way. That innocent people got caught in the fray, and the way they were treated was deplorable. However, these summits have devolved into political theatre where everyone knows what's going to happen. Hey, here's a thought; if we really WERE in a police state, they would have just opened fire and solved the problem quick. I can still ride my bike without a helmet, my Smoker friends can still smoke outside, there were yard sales galore happening here all summer. So, I don't know what you're talking about here about lost freedoms.
Of course, I don't expect this post to be here, as I have dared to question the validity of the above, but hey - ...its a free country , ain't it? I mean, the BIG BAD GOVT hasn't taken that yet, have they???

Sadly I have to agree with the first poster here - Canada has never had any sovereignty, just the illusion of it.

We supposedly earned our sovereignty by fighting for it at Vimy Ridge.

So we earned our sovereignty by fighting really well for our masters, and have since continued to support those masters and do their bidding even while officially opposing them.

All we did was add a few more masters to the list of those we "sovereignly" work for...

Example - Vietnam involvement was opposed by the Gov here, but plenty of "exchange programs" sent thousands of Canadian soldiers to fight with the U.S military despite our "opposition".

Kind of like how we opposed the recent Iraq War yet our JTF2 and other special ops groups were still there assisting with "humanitarian operations".

But anyways, as I've been trying to point out to people here many of the techniques implemented by the U.S to manipulate and control people were developed here or at least by Canadian researchers.

Canada has served as a testing ground for many different techniques as well, since we're more "passive" and "easy-going" so we tend to take things at face value really readily - ie we make good lab rats.

It's the same for Australia and numerous other Anglo-American puppet states.

Very few Canadians would consider the "powers that be" here to be malicious, the "encouraged" focus here is on dismissing them as a bunch of fools who are frequently incompetent and corrupted but not outright "bad".

And focusing on how evil the U.S government is for manipulating and purposefully selling out it's citizens to big business/banks.

The propaganda we're fed about Canada being the "good" nation is more easily swallowed when we compare ourselves to the corrupted and evil warmongers in the U.S.

We accept that they are corrupt and retarded yet we still seem to think they are the best people for the job.

Well I suppose the low voter turn-out in recent years shows that to be untrue, but sadly in our system not voting doesn't count for much as far as those "powers that be" are concerned.

You have to do more than simply not vote, you need to actually speak out.

As I was told like 10 times yesterday most Canadians honestly believe that "if you don't vote you have no right to complain".

If you think the system works while at the same time the best reason you can come up with for why someone should vote is that they then have the right to complain about how the corrupt government constantly screws them then quite frankly - you're a moron.

If you willfully participate in a system that you know is wholly corrupted then it is you who should not have the right to complain.

I'm sticking to my principles and Gandhi's recommendation of non-participation in anything I see as evil/immoral.

If I did vote I still wouldn't have a voice as I would be electing someone else to be my voice, and in order for them to do anything they need friends - and those friends come at a price.

If they don't become corrupt they don't get any support and don't accomplish anything of value and can effectively kiss any re-election chances goodbye.

Career politicians have to be corrupt in this system or they won't be career politicians, a corrupt system demands it.

Giving away my voice to a corrupt politician is not the best option, it should be the last option.

But it's the Canadian way as much or more so than it is the American way.

I'll admit I suppose I could have been more sophisticated with my language but I think you get the main idea of what I was trying to get across. I generally concur with your analysis, guys (except maybe the 3rd poster). There is an illusion of sovereignty. It's just that I feel the general degradation of society and most Canadians I talk to are too oblivious of most of what I included in most of that article. Recent events are a signpost that we are that much closer to seeing our leaders for who they really are.

That said, I do sense an explosion of interest in the truth and a huge awakening happening. I feel if more Canadians are exposed to the creeping legislation which paralells the south, concerning vaccinations and food freedoms, if more of them see a documentary highlighting the brutality of the g-20 event in Toronto, then that might jolt Canadians out of their trance just a bit and help erode the illusion. When I tell Canadians that kids all over the US are getting busted for selling lemonade, they are genuinely surprised and seem that much closer to one day connecting the dots, despite how apathetic they are at this particular moment in time. For the record, I never thought I lived in a free/sovereign country to begin with. The stench of authority was always there.

As far as that absurd attitude, the one saying you don't have a right to complain if you don't vote- that attitude is blasphemy. Not voting IS a "vote". And you're right, there are other ways we can affect change. Voting with our wallets, supporting independent media and putting our feet down about boycotts, to name just a few. By the way, I also had a gut feeling that Canadians were good lab rats for those very reasons outlined. I'm glad somebody pointed that out. I get that same overwhelming impression that Canadians seem to think our leaders are just incompetent fools and not "bad". As far as I'm concerned, our leaders are much worse than "bad". Hopefully people will continue to support the independent news media in whatever ways they can so that the true scope of their leaders' crimes are brought to light.

Here in Canada we are "brainwashed" in the exact same way the Americans are - through the "education" system.

An education is simply a program of learning whereby a certain set of information is presented and a certain perspective of how to interpret that info is "taught" to us.

I have recently read through 2 different elementary school history text books - one from my time in school and a "current" one from my niece who is in school now - and I didn't find a single negative point made about Canada at any time.

Except for a brief 2 paragraph mentioning of the "schools" that brutalized and killed numerous native's in the early to mid 1900's, and some criticism of how the policies toward natives up until the 80's and 90's were "quite inhumane".

No mention of how the current "reservation" system that mimics apartheid South Africa's and Zionist Israel's way for dealing with "inferior" races is purposefully meant to break down and destroy their culture and people as much so as the "schools" were, just in a more PR friendly way(we're giving them land, they should be grateful!).

I know for a fact there are many negative points that could be made about Canada throughout it's short history, but the "official history" doesn't like to tarnish the BS propaganda image of Canada being the "good" nation that only helps and never hurts people.

Hence there is no mention of the crimes committed by our forces in "humanitarian operations" in Eastern Europe throughout the 90's(though my old text book was before those crimes actually happened so they wouldn't be mentioned).

Hence there is no mention of the decade + long program which I believe was called "Echelon" whereby Canadian intelligence services worked hand-in-hand with the CIA to spy on Americans and hand over that info to the Americans while they did the same for us, getting around laws in both nations preventing them from spying on their own citizens.

Now more recently it's Canadians handing over prisoners to be tortured by the U.S, and assisting with CIA "rendition flights" and such.

And adopting our own variations of nearly every totalitarian law/rule that the U.S has installed or plans to install down there in the near future. Some of ours go further than the American counter-parts even.

Hell, that dumb bastard Harper was talking about bringing in mandatory minimum sentences for drug possession cases just in this last year at a time when the U.S government is discussing phasing them out because they've been so ineffective(the prison/law enforcement lobbies will prevent that I'm sure though).

Our government, military and intelligence services have long worked hand in hand with the CIA which is the chief agent of Anglo-American "domination" over the world.

To think that Canada is different than the U.S, that we aren't part of any "NWO" type conspiracies to screw the little people for the benefit of the "elites" requires a thorough propaganda indoctrination.

How else could you ignore the Canadian government's extreme measures and money wasted to ensure that a group of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world could be safe for a day from the masses they are supposedly there to discuss ways to help out?

They are the same corrupt POS's that hold meetings on ways to "combat poverty around the world" in 5 star luxury hotels and resorts right across the street from shanty town slums - and they build fences to hide the poverty they are there to "combat" - and when the slum's residents tear the fences down they waste money to park a bunch of buses in front of them to block them instead.

For these corrupt pigs "combating poverty" means figuring out ways to get 3rd world countries to accept more ridiculous loans they will never be able to pay back so they can be exploited more for the profit of those pigs so they can afford to rent 5 star hotels and have conferences on ways to "combat poverty" more effectively.

Canada is the U.S's "little brother" for a reason, and although that image itself is propaganda to play into Canadian's propagandized "inferiority complex" and keep us well ingrained with the idea that the Americans are evil warmongers but we are too closely intertwined with them(we're family) to not still be their bitches it is also unfortunately true.

We belong to the U.S, if they completely collapse economically then so will we(maybe delayed a bit, but it will happen), if they get attacked we catch the "blowback", and so on.

We are the 52nd state, though to be fair there are about 40 or 50 more of those unofficial U.S States these days too, and we aren't the worst of them in my opinion.

But if I was in charge we would have smothered "big brother" in his sleep long ago... :sigh:

We are sheeple too, just with a different branding. The maple leaf brand instead of the eagle, but of course we're just a subsidiary of them.

Technically we are a subsidiary of a subsidiary since we still hold the British monarchy as figurative rulers, and we still give the monarchy power through the Governor General position we maintain.

But the Anglo-American sphere is a joint operation headquartered jointly in Washington DC. and in London, England, so whether we put the Brits or Americans first is irrelevant.

It's the same old game and Canadians are equal players.
