If there had not be the pushback – the outrage, the sharing of memes and stories, the mocking of Trudeau’s ridiculous claims – Canada would still be under Emergency Rules.
There are times when I have doubts about how I spend my time. Keeping a hawkeye on the politicians, not only of our country, but others, as well. Taking the time to write out posts explaining just WHY we should care. Spending time on social media, promoting discussion of government overreach abuses, and urging others to spread the word.
Wading through official documents – proclamations, rules, legislation – analyzing the effect on ordinary citizens, and looking for anti-Constitutional effects.
Looking for ways to bring up aspects of government abuses that even the Woke can agree are Just Too Much.
And, now, seeing the result of a relatively small group of people, firm in their resistance to the vaccine mandates, bring the Trudeau government to reverse course.
Kudos, Canadians! Sometimes, the Mild-Mannered Triumph!
In addition to the ridicule he received, word is that Trudeau was told by his masters at the World Economic Forum to pull back. He was exposing their plans for a digital identity, social credit system that is to be tied in with the banking industry. It was to be tried out in Canada first and then expanded. By implementing the Emergency Act which includes some of the banking controls and identity tracking Trudeau had inadvertently exposed too much and too soon their plans for the Great Reset. World domination is a tricky business. You can’t let the sheeple know too far in advance what’s coming or the might not cooperate.
Yes, pulling back is a common Prog practice. “Two steps forward, one back” has always allowed them to solidify gains.
Trudeau proved he could get agreement despite misgivings about the need being very questionable. Once he got the implementation of the Emergency Powers Act under such weak premises, that was enough to comfort his global masters it could be implemented again, given even less legitimate reasons.
Sorry Linda to suggest restraint for your enthusiasm, but I’ve been around too long, seen too much to celebrate this “retreat.”
How timely. Jordan Peterson posted this today on FB:
You’re likely right.
I hope I’m not.
What I want is our spirit not to take another hit due to disappointment fed by false retreats. (Incidentally false retreats were how the Mongol hordes time and again came to dominate for nearly 200 years.)
When the Nov 3rd theft was not even allowed an honest hearing in any court or the press, our esprit de corps took a terrible hit. It’s the Right that believes in rule of law. And what happened? Too many we expected had to be on the side of shedding light let us — the whole world wishing to still see our shining light — down. That should not be allowed to ever happen again without warning, hence my comment.
I’ve watched gasoline prices go up. And they went up and up until people changed their driving habits. Then the cost went up a bit more, until the cost of gas was the subject of conversation with strangers and anger was growing. Then it dropped, slowly, but not down to the cost before. They ratchet stuff up, till the people are pissed,then they back off.
I remember watching the news and one day, I saw G W Bush talking to someone who told him about the price in Europe.
I don’t know why we can’t have that here.
He was in the scene, not the focus. His voice was not the only thing to be heard. I was watching his face and, well, reading lips along with a bit of audio, easy enough..
It is never a waste of time to keep up with what the enemies of humanity and freedom are up to.
It is good for morale laughing at memes and learning new things or hearing about what Joe and Jane Doe are doing in Anytown and their take on it.
Take what you can use and discard the rest.
