Canada’s ruling government is becoming more fascist by the day

Justin Trudeau and his minions are becoming even more totalitarian by the day, intent on forcing their will upon the Canadian citizens. I am sure that Canadians consider themselves to be a free people, and they do have “The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms”, but I wonder how many of those freedoms are being guarded by the current ruling government?

According to Wikipedia,

. . . some Charter rights are subject to the notwithstanding clause (section 33). The notwithstanding clause authorizes governments to temporarily override the rights and freedoms in sections 2 and 7 through 15 for up to five years, subject to renewal. The Canadian federal government has never invoked it, and some have speculated that its use would be politically costly.

The “notwithstanding clause” can override section 2, which is:

Section 2
lists what the Charter calls “fundamental freedoms” namely freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, freedom of thought, freedom of belief, freedom of expression, freedom of the press and of other media of communication, freedom of peaceful assembly, and freedom of association. In case law, this clause is cited as the reason for the religious neutrality of the state.

Apparently now you can be imprisoned in Canada for protesting peacefully against the government.

The other sections that can be overridden by the “not withstanding clause” are:

Section 7
right to life, liberty, and security of the person.
Section 8
freedom from unreasonable search and seizure.
Section 9
freedom from arbitrary detention or imprisonment.
Section 10
right to legal counsel and the guarantee of habeas corpus.
Section 11
rights in criminal and penal matters such as the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Section 12
right not to be subject to cruel and unusual punishment.
Section 13
rights against self-incrimination.
Section 14
right to an interpreter in a court proceeding.
Equality rights
Section 15
equal treatment before and under the law, and equal protection and benefit of the law without discrimination.

More about Section 33.

    Here is the Emergencies Act of Canada:

    https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/e-4.5/page-1.html

    Ask yourself if the current “crisis” rises to this level:

    For the purposes of this Act, a national emergency is an urgent and critical situation of a temporary nature that

    (a) seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it, or

    (b) seriously threatens the ability of the Government of Canada to preserve the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of Canada

    and that cannot be effectively dealt with under any other law of Canada.

    This doesn’t look like it will end well for any government in the free world. March 5 & 6 are the dates as of now, for Southern California.

    Paragraph 1 in our constitution act reads:

    “The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a
    free and democratic society.”

    Three clear conditions must be met.

    reasonable limits
    prescribed by law
    demonstrably justified

    All three conditions must be met. As the last surviving person who helped write and sign the constitution act, former Premier Peckford has made it clear that these conditions were there for extreme circumstances, such as a war situation. The conditions are very difficult to meet.

    “When the Emergencies Act is invoked, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (Charter) continues to protect individual rights as the Government of Canada takes the necessary steps to safeguard the safety and well-being of Canadians. In deciding on measures to take, the Government must respect constitutionally protected rights and freedoms, including the rights of citizens to enter Canada and the right to life, liberty and security of the person, as well as Canada’s obligations under international law. The Charter allows the Government to balance the rights of the individual with the interests of society where limits on guaranteed rights and freedoms can be justified in a free and democratic society.

    Specifically, section 1 of the Charter allows the Government to put limits on rights and freedoms if those limits:

    are set out in law;
    pursue an important goal which can be justified in a free and democratic society; and
    pursue that goal in a reasonable and proportionate manner.
    This means that during a public order emergency, as defined by the Emergencies Act, the Government must only take actions that are a reasonable and proportionate response to the risks to safety of Canadians.”

    He now has 7 sitting days to present a motion, which much be voted on by both the House of Commons and the Senate. The question is, does he already have them stacked in his favour or not?

    The announcement that they are going to use these “emergency powers” to freeze truckers’ bank accounts further confirms this article.
