Trudeau's internet censorship bill must be stopped

Brian Lilley

"If the idea of the government controlling what you can read online, what you can post online, and what videos you can view doesn’t strike you as quite right, then you might be a Canadian. Sadly, it’s the government of Canada that’s now putting forward legislation to give itself the type of powers we normally associate with basic dictatorships, like China."

It was April 16 when Premier Doug Ford announced indoor religious services must be capped to a maximum of 10 people. This was the first Sunday where the new rules took effect."

Do 75% of Canadians want to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Anthony Furey

"Earlier this week, Dr. Theresa Tam says lockdowns will only be lifted by the summer if 75% of Canadians are vaccinated. While Canada’s slow vaccine rollout makes Tam’s goal appear unattainable, the other important question to ask is if 75% of Canadians even want to get the COVID-19 vaccine."

A COVID Apology to America, on Behalf of the Evangelical Church

Chris Hume

"Dealing with government overreach, media-induced fear, and hysteria without end would have been bad enough. But the one place where Christians should have been able to find refuge was in the church. There, believers should have found a different spirit—a spirit of faith and trust and courage. A spirit of freedom and peace. Believers should have been able to point to the church—the called out ones—and said to a watching world, 'Behold, there is something otherworldly, something different from the world.' Sadly, that wasn’t the case for most churches. Uncertainty, fear, cancellations of fellowship, mask requirements, and social distance regulations thrived in the church just as much as in the world."

Unprecedented Times Call for Precedented Measures: Coronavirus and Cancelling Church Services

Chris Hume

"But there is another area of life that has been impacted by the response to the virus: the gathering of God’s people on the Lord’s Day. It seems the majority of Christian congregations have suspended the gathering of the saints during this time. The unprecedented times have led to the temporary setting aside of the precedents that have characterized the church for generations."

Podcast: Evidence Delayed is Evidence Denied

John Carpay, JCCF

"After missing last week's show, we play catch-up on the government lockdown files. Generally, health authorities and politicians across the country are increasing Covid restrictions. At the same time, governments are using delay tactics in court, claiming they need multiple months to produce the evidence that might justify their Charter-violating laws, policies and health orders, and telling judges they need more time. After 13 months, this is no excuse. They should have been ready with their 'science-based' evidence a long time ago, as soon as the violations of Charter freedoms began in March of 2020."

Video: INTERVIEW with Pastor James Coates: GraceLife Church raided by RCMP

Sheila Gunn Reid, James Coates

"GraceLife Church was seized Wednesday by Alberta Health Services, in a dawn raid on the property. In this exclusive interview, GraceLife Pastor James Coates reacts to the confiscation of his church."

Podcast: our Vaccine Passport Please

John Carpay, JCCF

"Government officials are now floating the idea of vaccine passports. Is this a violation of our constitutional and/or privacy rights? Scientifically, we have little evidence about the long term effects of the various vaccinations. They're still at the experimental stage. To be talking about health passports now tips the bureaucrats' hand. It's more an exertion of government control, an abuse of power, than scientifically sound policy to benefit society."

Alberta government seeks to delay May 3 trial of Pastor Coates and barricades Church

Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom

Podcast: Canada’s Covid Failings

John Carpay, JCCF

"Canada’s provincial and federal governments had a bad week on the Covid file, as increasing case numbers, leading to increased lockdowns and fines, are revealing their restrictions don’t seem to be working. To make matters worse, we learn that the country’s Covid deaths in long term care homes are the highest in the developed world. We discuss this news and John gives us a sneak preview of an upcoming paper, as yet untitled, that the Centre is working on now."

Did Lockdown Work? An Economist’s Cross-Country Comparison

Christian Bjørnskov

"I explore the association between the severity of lockdown policies in the first half of 2020 and mortality rates. Using two indices from the Blavatnik Centre’s COVID-19 policy measures and comparing weekly mortality rates from 24 European countries in the first halves of 2017–2020, addressing policy endogeneity in two different ways, and taking timing into account, I find no clear association between lockdown policies and mortality development."

Video: Mandatory Vaccinations and Vaccine Passports

Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom

"In the latest escalation of rights infringements, governments in Canada are now actively discussing legislation which would mandate vaccination for Covid. Citizens across the country are rightly concerned. In other provinces, governments are saying that the vaccine will not be forced, but there will be consequences for not taking it."

Kyle Becker

"The Biden administration is set to launch a COVID passport that would track Americans that took the vaccine, despite warnings by civil rights advocates."

The death of Covid tyranny may be nigh - Are we finally heading back to the old normal?

Ramesh Thakur

"The enormous gulf between observational data and the unshakeable cult-like belief system of the scientific-political elite on lockdowns is baffling... Hundreds of millions have suffered between the callousness of the modelling dogmatists, panic-fueling media, authoritarian instincts of social engineers and cowardice of science-challenged politicians. Children and the elderly were both badly betrayed by the pandemic lockdowns. We’ve endured extraordinarily widespread human suffering, long-term economic devastation and reckless government spending for a year."

The pandemic has worsened the child mental health crisis. How parents are handling it all.

Priscilla Blossom

"A study published in the journal Psychiatry Research confirms there has been a strong negative mental health impact on our youth due to COVID-19 and pandemic lockdowns. The study reviewed numerous articles and found the effects were even greater depending on variables such as pre-existing mental health conditions and being economically underprivileged. Additionally, in recent months the CDC has noted a surge in mental health-related emergency department visits among children throughout the pandemic, further suggesting a mental health crisis among our nation’s youth."

"'rights protections do not go away in a pandemic,' adjudicator Jennifer Scott wrote in her decision released on Tuesday."

Risk of Asymptomatic Spread Minimal. Variants Over-Hyped. Masks Pointless. An Interview With Professor Jay Bhattacharya

Oliver May

"New variants are of no concern. There is no need to cancel summer holidays. Millions vaccinated, coupled with immunity from millions of prior infections means we can surf on the crest of the third wave, rather than being remotely concerned about it. In fact, the UK should open now. And vaccine passports, certificates, or whatever name they are being given, will do nothing to improve the health of the population – all headlines we have read and heard over the past week or so."

Podcast: The BC Judgment Comes Down

John Carpay, JCCF

"A good news/bad news show. First, John tells us about Pastor James Coates' release from prison in Alberta.

Are there any grounds for appeal?"

It’s unethical to ignore the harms of lockdowns on kids

Anthony Furey

"Many health professionals have concluded that children are less susceptible to COVID-19. In fact, health experts have learned that influenza is more harmful to children than COVID-19. So why aren’t our public officials talking more about a balanced approach to lockdowns? It is unethical and immoral to ignore or downplay the harms of the lockdowns for children and youth."

A year of fear

Gary Sidley

"Dr. Gary Sidley analyses the language of fear that has been peddled throughout the pandemic"

It’s time to close Trudeau’s dirty and dangerous quarantine hotels

John Carpay, JCCF

"Politicians failed to protect the vulnerable sick and elderly in long-term care homes who make up about 80 percent of Covid deaths, and instead pushed millions of otherwise healthy Canadians into isolation, loneliness, unemployment, poverty and misery. Obviously, the government’s lockdown measures in the past 12 months have failed to keep Covid out of nursing homes, and the federal government has not produced any evidence of a link between nursing home deaths and international travel."

Parents against COVID-19 health measures pull children from classes at northern Alberta school

Stephen David Cross

"A northern Alberta school has seen its student population drop in half as parents opposed to COVID-19 public health measures removed their children from classes."

For many Canadians, the cure is worse than the disease

Candice Malcolm

"It has been over a year now since COVID-19 began to wreak havoc on our society. Remember, we were originally told to stay home for 14 days to 'flatten the curve.' The curve described the number of critical care patients in our hospital system, which we were told was at risk of being overrun because of COVID-19. Our under-funded government-managed system simply couldn’t handle the predicted worst case scenario influx, and so, we all stayed inside for the 'greater good.' Well, those two weeks have turned into 52 weeks and counting and, in that time, we’ve witnessed a remarkable transformation of our society."

Ontario’s arbitrary COVID-19 restrictions

Anthony Furey

"It’s becoming clear that some of Ontario’s COVID-19 restrictions are not based on science. The latest example is in Toronto and Peel, where health officials have finally allowed restaurants to open their patios.
Why were the patios closed in the first place? There’s no science to suggest patios were contributing to the spread of the virus."

Video: Locked Down: Canada’s failed approach to COVID-19

True North

"Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, Canadians have been victims of some of the strictest lockdown restrictions in the world."

Do Lockdowns Make A Difference In A Pandemic?

Maria (Masha) Krylova

"Once something becomes a habit, it can be hard to break. So it has been with the array of restrictions governments imposed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. What were initially billed as short-term measures to “flatten the curve” morphed into something much bigger and longer-term: comprehensive policies altering nearly every aspect of our lives , imposed by the local premier, governor, or top health official with little reflection and only the barest legislative oversight. 'Lockdowns' quickly became conventional wisdom and the accepted ideology of nearly every societal elite. And with many lockdowns or key elements lingering even today, they proved anything but short term."

Podcast: Pastors Fined, Imprisoned, and Threatened in Canada The Battle for Liberty Heats Up

Kevin Swanson, Michael Thiessen

Pastor Michael Thiessen, campaign manager for Liberty Coalition Canada joins us for a lively discussion on the battle for liberty. The moment of truth is upon us. Will Pastor Coates and Pastor Thiessen succeed, or will liberties for church meetings be severely curtailed in Canada? Will Christians be finally forced to flee?

Hospitals at capacity as COVID-19 fears lead to sicker patients seeking treatment

Nicolle Williams

"Several hospitals in the Ottawa area are at or over 100 per cent capacity, but not because of COVID-19 patients. Rather, officials say it's because many people who don't have the virus are delaying going to hospital, and when they finally do seek treatment, they're very sick. Leah Levesque, vice-president of patient care at the Queensway Carelton Hospital (QCH), is calling the phenomenon 'the unintended consequences of COVID.'"

Why we fear Covid too much

Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom

"All deaths are tragic. We do not value one life over another, on the basis of age. However, the vulnerability of the elderly and infirm to the Covid virus, and their geographic concentration, point to a rather obvious mitigation strategy. Rather than locking down healthy people everywhere, our efforts should be focused on protecting a relatively small population of unhealthy, and largely immobile people, in the readily accessible places where they live. In Canada, after a year observing this, we continue to do the exact opposite. Risk is a part of life. Calculating our exposure to risk is something we do all the time. For example there are 160,000 vehicle accidents on Canada’s roads every year, and around 2,000 people die in them, not to mention a far larger number of Canadians who will suffer harms including emotional distress and quadriplegia. But individually, millions of Canadians still make the daily decision to drive, or to be a passenger in a motor vehicle."

How masks could affect speech and language development in children

Carly Thomas

As they grow, babies use lipreading as part of speech and language development. This means that for infants who are in daycare settings, and therefore constantly seeing masked caregivers, "there may be some detrimental effects of at least extended exposure [to masks]."

End the doctatorship, elected politicians must be in charge

Brian Lilley

When all of this is said and done — when COVID-19 and the restrictions brought in by politicians no longer dictate our days — there’s one major change we need to make to our public health laws and regulations. We need to strip public health doctors of some of their arbitrary powers to ensure we never live under a 'doctatorship' again."

Pandemic isolation depriving toddlers and babies of needed social interaction, microbes

Cameron French

"A year into the pandemic and sick of being cooped up in their homes, many Canadians may feel like they’re near the breaking point. But for infants and toddlers, the lack of contact with people outside of their immediate family means they’re missing out on social and biological interactions that are key for their development, say experts."

Don’t Get Fooled Again by Religious-Freedom Restrictions

Lathan Watts

This past year demonstrates the truth of C.S. Lewis’s observation that the most oppressive tyranny is the one “sincerely exercised for the good of its victims.” From his work God in the Dock, Lewis reminds us that: “…those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience…This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

No clear, significant benefit to lockdowns

Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom

Sometimes it seems a rational discussion of lockdowns is beyond Canadians. However, more and more the credible voices are confirming what has been suspected from the start: Lockdowns don’t work and are actually harmful.

Canadians are letting lockdowns happen

Jerry Agar

"Politicians in Canada can get away with a greater degree of ordering people around, even ordering them into unemployment and bankruptcy, because most Canadians will put up with it. Sure, we have our anti-maskers and our rogue restaurant owners – the occasional kerfuffle at the airport – but politicians know they are unlikely to suffer in the next election. Small business owners are outvoted by fearful people and the public sector. Too many Canadians are busy hating on anyone who travels as opposed to asking whether the policies make sense. Totalitarianism relies on a division of us and them."

The other side of COVID-19: Mental health challenges prevalent in youth

Media Room, Hamilton Health Sciences

"Youth admitted for medical support after a suicide attempt has tripled over a four month period, compared to last year. Patients are staying in hospital longer due to more serious attempts. A large number of these youth have reported COVID-related issues such as lack of social interaction, increased conflict at home, and the inability to rely on friends as main contributors."

COVID-19: Vaccination passports likely on way for travel, though fraught with concerns

Derrick Penner

"Canada won't leave the country behind if other countries adopt 'vaccine passports' as a requirement for international travel, but domestically, politicians are wary of the ethical pitfalls that would go with such programs."

COVID-19 lockdowns may impact cognitive ability, risk assessment: study

Brooke Taylor
