The federal government faces a surge in anger across the country as faith organizations rebel against arrogant Trudeau’s slide towards authoritarianism.
Justin Trudeau’s attempt to make faith organizations adhere to his worldview in order to access federal money faces a growing rebellion across our nation.
Faith groups are challenging the Trudeau government in the strongest possible terms, and are pledging to fight Trudeau’s Canada Summer Jobs policy as being against the Charter.
As noted in a recent report, President of the Canada Christian College Charles McVety “called the new policy “Draconian,” “communistic” and a violation of charter rights.” “Ideology tests do not belong in this country of Canada,” he said. McVety said the issue is top of mind for Christian Canadians, who are joining forces to fight what he called “pure discrimination.” He worries the policy will be expanded to other federal government programs.”
Those strong words where echoed by Peter Marshall, the head of Canadian Religious Broadcasters, who said the policy from the Trudeau government is “discriminatory and fascist,” adding “If we go down the road of what our prime minister is trying to do with this policy, then is it OK to be punitive toward those that don’t embrace your philosophy, your ideology, or your political viewpoints? That is tyrannical, and very dangerous to our country.”
Marshall makes an essential point:
This isn’t just about what one faith group happens to believe, it’s about the idea that the government is telling Canadians that they must agree with the government in order to get federal funding. Making this even worse, the Trudeau government has repeatedly refused to deny that they will expand the policy to other programs.
We are seeing the growth of an authoritarian attitude within Trudeau and the government. While they hide behind ‘inclusivity’ and political correctness, they are attempting to silence and punish those who don’t do their bidding, and see themselves as the masters of the Canadian people, rather than our servants.
As reported – surprisingly – by CBC, the head of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) Michael Bryant has also expressed concerns:
“CCLA has been freedom fighting for 50 years, so the feds’ promotion of Charter rights is great news, except when the government becomes thought-police, telling organizations what they have to stand for, in order to obtain federal funding for a program for which they’d otherwise be eligible.”
That represents a serious danger to our nation, and it’s why all Canadians – regardless of whether people agree or disagree with the viewpoint of faith groups rebelling against the policy – should stand with those who are fighting for the protection promised by former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker:
“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.”
