Building the Sasquatch Tribe

As always, I would like to begin with a thank you from a place of gratitude. I began this substack just under a year ago, and it has become such a great success, all through your support. I have already sent out a few newsletters with my thoughts on how I will be proceeding with substack and my life goals in general. This will be an ever evolving project, so from time to time, I may change course depending on feedback and personal drive. 

Suspension for Enactment

Speaker of the House for the Canadian federal Parliament, Anthony Rota, suspended the sitting of parliamentarians on Friday, February 18 due to the operation of removing the “Freedom Convoy” protestors from Ottawa beginning. He cited “exceptional circumstances” and that “safety is paramount” for the politicians and staff, as justification to essentially stop the debate on whether the Trudeau Liberals should be allowed to use the overreaching powers of the Emergency Act.

Canadians Comment on Trudeau’s Act

Canadians Comment by Collin Wynter “We’re not using the emergencies act to call in the military. We’re not suspending fundamental rights or overriding the Charter of Right and Freedoms, we are not limiting people’s freedom of speech, we are not limiting freedom of peaceful assembly, we are not preventing people from exercising their right toContinue reading “Canadians Comment on Trudeau’s Act”

Creating an Emergency Lane

Canadians protesting the Trudeau Liberal government in Ottawa, as well as their own provincial governments respectively, has entered the third week of civil disobedience. The protest originally against mandated vaccinations for truckers was planned to begin on Saturday, January 29th, although some people arrived on the 28th. After beginning, the scope of objection to government policy has expanded to include concerns about political overreach and  the demand to remove all covid 19 restrictions. The discontent seen in the public square after suffering through the past two years of nonsensical policies that seemed based on political and business maneuvers, rather than on science and public health, has taken its toll on the psyche. The people have had enough.

Who’s Driving the Narrative?

Who’s driving the narrative of the trucker convoy protest that is currently situated in Ottawa Toronto and the Ambassador Bridge at the Canada US border crossing in Ontario; Emerson crossing and Winnipeg in Manitoba; Coutts in Alberta; Victoria in BC; Montreal in Quebec, among other cities and places across the Canada; is it the truckers, the politicians or the media? Who will win public opinion to affect government policy and have the restrictions and mandates removed from Canadian society? This is no easy and simple answer. As we shall see, there are a variety of interests and actors attempting to shape the protest into a political crisis that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau desires to use to his political ends.

A Brief Analysis of WPATH SOC8

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health is an international organization that sets standards of care (SOC) to be disseminated to country based organizations down to the grassroots level. These standards affect all aspects of what is known as “trans health care” and influences all persons involved, even the general public. They released a preliminary version of their SOC version 8 for review, and requested feedback. Below are just some of my thoughts on the document, which you can learn more about here. For those not fully abreast of the organization and its mandate, the sections may appear disjointed. I will be releasing a more detailed analysis when their final version is released next summer. Suffice to say, there are many concerning recommendations; the least of which being, the apparent argument going on within the document itself, between a narrative of development medical professionals concerned about the medicalization of children, versus activists willing to sacrifice the childhood for their ideological belief in the transgender identity.

Revving Up the Engines, Part 3 of The Great Canadian Protest

‘The Liberals’ and the left wing media’s narrative is crumbling’, is a common exposition by those who have been watching the Freedom Convoy protest in earnest. As there continues to be no actual evidence that the protestors are “right wing extremists”, that they are the decried anti-vaxxers so feared by Trudeau, that they have violent intentions to tear down the government, the propaganda by those salivating at such a scenario, is ramping up

Fuelling Up on Freedom

they worry they can’t afford food. It’s for the 60 year old small business man who has spent his entire adult life building up an enterprise and watching it wiped out. It’s for the depressed 14 year old who’s been locked out of school. It’s for the families that can’t take it anymore. It’s for the people who want to stand up and speak for their freedoms. It’s for all those that our government and our media have insulted and left behind. It’s for the people who work hard to put food on our table, to stock our shelves and to make this country work. It’s for all that is great and that attracts hundreds of thousands of people from across the world to come here. They come here not for the warm weather but for our freedom and that’s why we are gathered here today. Freedom not fear. Truckers not Trudeau.”

Keep on Truckin’

“The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa are holding unacceptable views that they’re expressing, do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other who know that following the science and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, rights, and values as a country.”
