I sit down with Richard Garner to explore the rise of Justin Trudeau and what it says about the nature of our political systems. As always, big questions are asked: can our existing systems truly produce a thriving world? What might the solution be if not?
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a statement on Friday, wherein he gave himself a self-congratulatory pat on the back, calling the trip “successful.”
The prime minister was criticized by European politicians over his record on human rights abuses after he delivered a low-energy speech to a quarter-full auditorium of European politicians.
“The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today successfully concluded his trip to Brussels, Belgium. The Prime Minister addressed the European Parliament, and participated in an extraordinary North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Summit and a G7 Heads of State and Government Meeting,” the statement says.
It would continue: “… On March 23, the Prime Minister addressed the European Parliament where he condemned President Putin’s war of choice and reaffirmed Canada’s steadfast commitment to Euro-Atlantic security, including by calling for further coordinated strong support for Ukraine in response to Russia’s aggression. He spoke of the need to continue working together to promote international peace and security and defend democracy. During his address, the Prime Minister highlighted the close partnership between Canada and the European Union based on our shared values.”
The prime minister‘s speech also included criticism of Canada’s Freedom Convoy organizers, calling them populists who preyed on Canadians’ anxieties.
“Even in Canada, where 90 percent of people are vaccinated, and our motto as a country ‘peace, order, and good government,’ we saw anti-vaccine and anti-government protest evolve into illegal occupations of our communities and blockades of our borders,” said Trudeau, who added that the leaders of the convoys were “effective in turning citizens with real anxieties against the system best suited to allay those concerns.”
Following Trudeau’s speech, European politicians criticized the prime minister to his face, saying he was acting like a dictator.
Mislav Kolakusic from Croatia accused Trudeau of conducting “a dictatorship of the worst kind,” specifically calling out Trudeau for figuratively trampling on the rights of Canadians, as well as literally having horses trample women during the Freedom Convoy protests.
MEP Christine Anderson of Germany told the prime minister that he was a “disgrace to any democracy.” Anderson criticized Trudeau for violating “democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.”
“A prime minister who openly admires the Chinese basic dictatorship, who tramples on human rights, by persecuting and criminalizing his own citizens as terrorists, because they dare stand up to his perverted concept of democracy, should not be allowed to speak in this House at all. Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace for any democracy, please spare us your presence,” said the MEP, to applause.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did everything he could to shut down the Freedom Convoy protesters; from declaring a state of emergency, to seizing money they fundraised, to sending the police in to use physical force against them.
Trudeau is still dealing with the political fallout from how he handled the Freedom Convoy demonstration, with a vast majority of voters disapproving of his handling of the situation and his overall approval rating dipping significantly. The Gateway Pundit Reports–
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party approval rating has reached its lowest point in nearly a year, following Trudeau’s crackdown on “Freedom Convoy” protestors in February, according to a Tuesday poll from Nanos Research.
Nanos Research, a public opinion and polling company based out of Ottawa, Canada, released a poll showing that Trudeau’s liberal party was facing its lowest approval rating in nearly 12 months, according to the Wall Street Journal. Trudeau’s remarks towards those who challenged his COVID-19 health policies came under fire from members of his own party, who considered them disdainful, the outlet reported.
A separate Nanos poll found that 47% of Canadians’ impression of Trudeau was “worsened” by the Prime Minister’s “handling of the Truckers Convoy Protest.” Comparatively, 20% said it improved their impression of Trudeau while 31% said it had “no impact,” the poll found. An additional 2% were “unsure” of how their impressions were affected.
Last month, a group chat was leaked that showed police actively take joy in brutalizing Freedom Convoy demonstrators. In what is alleged to be an RCMP group chat, police officers made jokes about protesters hearing their ‘jackboots on the ground’.
One officer seemed excited at the chance to beat up protesters, saying that he hopes protests are still going on next week so he can ‘get his turn’ in a text sent the weekend before police began using violence against the mostly peaceful demonstrators.
Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich had a message for Justin Trudeau, after reports that the prime minister would be invoking the Emergencies Act: “We will hold the line.”
Lich said that the protestors would remain “peaceful and planted at Parliament till the mandates are removed.” Lich was speaking during a press conference in Ottawa on Tuesday, addressing Prime Minister Trudeau’s statement that he would use the Emergencies Act to clear the protestors from the city.
The Freedom Convoy organizers have previously said that they would remain in Ottawa until the vaccine mandates were lifted. Fellow protestors who blockaded the Ambassador Bridge between Windsor, Ont. and Detroit, Mich., were cleared over the weekend.
Four premiers have stated their discontent with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s reported decision to invoke the Emergencies Act. Premier Scott Moe (Sask.), Jason Kenney (Alb.), Francois Legault (Queb.) and Heather Stefanson (Man.) voiced their displeasure with Trudeau’s move.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford made an announcement on Monday to lift Covid-inspired restrictions earlier than previously planned.
Trudeau intends to speak to the nation on Monday afternoon.
The Trucker Freedom Convoy to Ottawa Canada entered its second day today, with no signs that things were slowing down. As I have periodically checked in to live streaming throughout the day, I have heard people on the ground in Ottawa state things like: “They think we’re all going home now, but we’re just getting started!”
There was a stage set up in downtown Ottawa this morning where local pastors and others took turns addressing the crowds. The protests have been remarkably peaceful, so far, given the size of the crowds, which even the corporate media admits is in the “thousands” but is probably in the tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands. Some people on the ground are estimating up to 2 million.
And yet, the corporate media continues to characterize the protesters as “radicals” and “domestic terrorists” even suggesting that “Russian actors” are probably fueling the protests.

In some positive news, Scott Moe, the Premier of Saskatchewan, a Canadian province that borders the US, called for an end to vaccine mandates for the truckers.
The trucker convoy has received widespread support and their supporters have raised millions of dollars to support them to cover the cost of fuel and food, making this appear to be more than just a weekend event. Their success this weekend has spurred on plans for other trucker convoys in the U.S. and around the world.
What will happen next? That is the big question facing Canadians and those around the world as they watch what is happening in Ottawa. People are scheduled to return to work tomorrow, Monday morning, including members of Parliament.
Meanwhile, there won’t be many trucks crossing the border between Canada and the U.S., which is sure to exacerbate already stressed supply chain problems.
If this drags on into the week, the Canadian government is sure to take action. But just what that action will be, and whether or not members of the military and RCMP will obey their tyrannical leaders if they ask them to turn on their fellow citizens, is yet to be seen.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked today about the 50,000+ truckers and millions of supporters of the “Freedom Convoy” that is headed to Ottawa to protest the heavy-handed government COVID approach.
In true totalitarian fashion, the pontificating pustule of pompous promotion claimed the people protesting his position are a “fringe minority” of the Canadian people, holding “unacceptable views” against his regime.
This guy is almost as bad as Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand. How a majority of Canadian people could possibly support this arrogant and condescending weasel simply shows just how pathetic the political opposition in Canada really is.
Put a solid, strong and articulate conservative up against these creeps and things might change. However, that person needs to be able to look the uber-leftist media in the eye, speak with plain commonsense, and call them on their bulls**t.
Renowned Canadian constitutional lawyer, Rocco Galati, sits down with journalist Rajie Kabli to discuss a lawsuit filled against the Canadian Government for extreme COVID-19 measures. Why are alternative perspectives being censored? Why are so many doctors and scientists presenting their opinions and research being completely ignored by mainstream media? Why are people made to point fingers at those who raise concerns?
They are suing the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Theresa Tam, Premier of Ontario Doug Ford, and many more. You can view the 196 page statement of claim here.
The names and stories of some of the individual plaintiffs have been redacted on the documents by the plaintiffs themselves.
Social media posts from Rocco Galati, the lawyer representing the plaintiffs, said it was done out of precaution to protect the individuals from harassment.
The plaintiffs include academics, doctors, people with disabilities and more.
Complaints include business closures, the mandating of masks and social distancing rules which the group argues are “extreme, unwarranted and unjustified” responses to the pandemic were “not scientific, nor medically-based, nor proven.”
They also bring forth evidence stating that government mask mandates can cause “physical and psychological harm.”
The group accuses the WHO, mainstream media and the federal government of spreading false alarm during the COVID-19 pandemic
Galati recently sat down for an interview with journalist Rajie Kabli for a two part interview. Below is part one, you can watch part 2 here if interested.
Why This Is Important: The sentiments shared by the plaintiffs in this case seem to be on part with many professionals across the world. For example,
More than 500 German doctors & scientists have signed on as representatives of an organization called the “Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee” to investigate what’s happening on our planet with regards to COVID-19, expressing the same sentiment. They came together to investigate the severity of the virus, and whether or not the actions taken by governments around the world, and in this case the German government, are justified and not causing more harm than good. You can more on the organizations website if interested, they’ve repeatedly shared their opinion that what is happening is completely unnecessary and harmful in many different ways. They have referred to the pandemic as “fake story all over the world.” You can read more about that here.
Dr. Michael Palmer, a chemistry professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada, who also has a medical degree with a specialization in microbiology is making headlines for for distributing a course outline to his students saying his in-class exams aren’t mandatory “because of the COVID fake emergency,” according to CBC news. The course outline was posted on social media after it was recently distributed to students. You can read more about that story here.
An article published in the British Medical Journal has suggested that quarantine measures in the United Kingdom as a result of the new coronavirus may have already killed more UK seniors than the coronavirus has during the peak of the virus. You can access that report and read more about it here.
The Physicians For Informed Consent (PIC) recently published a report titled “Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) Compares COVID-19 to Previous Seasonal and Pandemic Flu Periods.” According to them, the infection/fatality rate of COVID-19 is 0.26%. You can read more about that and access their resources and reasoning here.
John P. A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Stanford University has said that the infection fatality rate is close to 0 percent for people under the age of 45 years old. You an read more about that story here.
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history is also part of Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee mentioned above and has also expressed the same thing, multiple times early on in the pandemic all the way up to today.
Implementation of the current draconian measures that are so extremely restrict fundamental rights can only be justified if there is reason to fear that a truly, exceptionally dangerous virus is threatening us. Do any scientifically sound data exist to support this contention for COVID-19? I assert that the answer is simply, no. – Bhakdi. You can read more about him here.
Michael Levitt, a Biophysicist and a professor of structural biology at Stanford University, criticized the WHO as well as Facebook for censoring different information and informed perspectives regarding the Coronavirus. He said that “The level of stupidity going on here is amazing.” You can read more about that here.
The examples listed above aren’t even the tip of the ice-berg.
There is also the issue of deaths being attributed to covid when they’re not really a result of covid. You can read more about that and see some more examples here.
The point is, citizens scientists and doctors do not feel heard when it comes to what they want to see done by governments when it comes to the current state of our world, so they are becoming frustrated. Taking legal action seems to be the only way to get attention these days.

I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since 🙂 There are many things happening on the planet that don’t resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It’s been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
TORONTO (AP) — A military reservist who allegedly crashed his truck through a gate on the grounds where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lives was charged with 22 crimes on Friday, including weapons offenses and uttering threats.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Deputy Commissioner Mike Duheme said Corey Hurren had several weapons when he was arrested Thursday.
He declined to comment on the motivation of Hurren, a 46-year-old on-duty member of the Canadian military reserves who also has a gourmet sausage business in Manitoba. The man had a bail hearing Friday and was remanded in custody until July 17.
He faces charges including two counts of possessing a restricted or prohibited gun, four counts of careless use, storage or handling of a firearm and four counts of possessing a firearm for a dangerous purpose.
Police believe he was acting alone.
Shortly before the incident, a post on Hurren’s GrindHouse Fine Foods Facebook page showed a meme of a large outdoor party that would supposedly occur after the COVID-19 lockdown and it directed people to look up “Event 201,” a worldwide pandemic preparedness exercise run last year that conspiracy theorists sometimes use to suggest Microsoft founder Bill Gates is behind COVID-19.
Police said Hurren crashed his truck through the gate at 6:30 a.m. Thursday. The truck was disabled and the suspect was spotted with a rifle before being contained in a greenhouse on the sprawling property in Ottawa. Police began talking to him and he was arrested two hours later.
Trudeau lives on the grounds of the property where Canada’s governor general resides. The post of governor general, currently held by Julie Payette, is a mostly ceremonial position. Payette also was not home at the time.
Trudeau, his wife and three children live in a cottage on the property because the prime minister’s traditional residence is in disrepair.
“This was something that no one wants to hear, that someone entered your home,” Trudeau said. “I want to extend my sincere thanks to the RCMP and the Ottawa police service that did a remarkable job in ensuring that there were not injuries.”
Trudeau declined further comment.
“As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity.” -Hunter Thompson
