So Canada’s state of emergency hasn’t been lifted despite the clearing of the blockcade.
Here’s Trudeau’s words:
“After weeks of dangerous and unlawful activities, after weeks of people being harassed in the neighborhoods, [and] after evidence of increased ideologically motivated violent extremism activity across the country,” local authorities needed “more tools to restore order,” he said.
The only violent extremism I saw was from the Canadian government, first with the mandates, second for not laying out a timetable for dismantling them, third, for refusing to negotiate. As far as I can tell the only people who got hurt were those who got hurt by the police. These people weren’t a danger, they were an inconvenience.
Trudeau said that “a flood of misinformation and disinformation washed over Canada” during the protests, including from foreign sources, and the blockades and occupations “received disturbing amounts of foreign funding to destabilize Canada’s democracy.”
Most of the foreign funding and alleged mis/disinformation was from the USA. However, it’s easy to allege mis/disinformation when you don’t actually provide a list of exactly which pieces of mis/disinformation you’re talking about. Is that the result sloppy reasoning, slimy propaganda, a captured opposition or something else? Whichever options I think of, it is all reminiscent to me of the rubbish spewed forth by Eastern European governments under communism. Several east european friends of mine old enough to remember confirm this view.
This book is fantastic because it explains very readably how modern states function. When I have finished it, I’ll be able to comment more thoroughly on the extent to which Canada is undergoing a coup d’etat.
PJW on how the WEF has penetrated cabinets, Canada in particular. How true is this? Seems credible, but PJW never provides links to his sources so while interesting, I don’t trust him. Would like your comments on this.
