Whatcott Winds Up Free Speech Tour

Whatcott Winds Up Free Speech Tour

 
EDMONTON. November 16, 2014. Author and evangelist Bill Whatcott wrapped up a weekend speaking tour sponsored by the Canadian Association for Free Expression here today. The tour took Mr. Whatcott to Vancouver and Edmonton. His topic was “The War on Christianity: Can Traditional Christians Still Witness to the Truth in Politically Correct Canada?”
 
The veteran of several dozen arrests for counselling people outside Toronto abortuaries but within the prohibited gag zone or “bubble” zone, Mr. Whatcott reflected on the “double standard” of Canada’s justice system. He recalled one inmate who had received 30 days for numerous counts of shoplifting and Mr. Whatcott getting the same sentence for protesting outside an abortion clinic.
 
He described being jailed in Toronto’s notorious Don Jail. Political  prisoners “were always treated  more harshly.” At one point, he was put in cells with delusional or violent people. At another time, he was denied socks or blankets. When he got free speech supporters to call the prison and protest, the authorities told the prisoners on his range that they were losing their television privileges because of Whatcott. A prisoner punched him in the face. “They were clearly trying to make prison so terrible and dangerous to me that I would stop protesting,” he explained.

Blasting the Persecution of Christopher Sandau

So let me get this straight. Somebody with a politically incorrect belief system who did not share it with the kids he taught or coached should be fired because a person who holds such beliefs must be regarded as  a poor “role model”. As one parent said, “You can’t be a Nazi and coach kids’ hockey”.

OK then. Can you be a fundamentalist Christian and coach kids’ hockey? For a great many people, fundamentalist Christian beliefs are politically incorrect. Members of the Law Society in this province, for example, recently voted for a policy that would deny graduates of the Trinity College law school accreditation because of principles thought to be, well, “politically incorrect”.

Can you express support for the Conservative Party of Canada on your Facebook page and coach kids’ hockey? After all, many supporters of the Green, Liberal and NDP parties would consider Conservative ideas, particularly social Conservative ideas “politically incorrect”.

But hey wait, you say. Comparing fundamentalist Christians and Conservatives to Nazis is absurd. Nazism is a totalitarian ideology associated with the commission of some of the most horrendous crimes in human history. But guess what? So is Communism. In fact the “body count” of Comrade Stalin or Mao is many times greater than Hitlers’. Funny though, many people with a Communist past in Canada, like former BQ leader Gilles Duceppe for example, were never held accountable by the media for it. In Canada, being a student Marxist has been treated almost like a rite of passage, a forgiveble stage of growing up. Those with a Nazi past, though, were hounded and deported.

<p>Throughout the sixties and seventies and eighties, Leftists and progressives decried the persecution of the "Hollywood Ten" and others, like Pete Seeger, who were blacklisted for their alleged Communist sympathies.

More than that, at least in Canada, many self-described Communists served on city councils,unions, school boards and taught in schools. Hmm. Interesting.

<p>That leads me to wonder. If Mr. Sandau made his Facebook page "a shrine for Communism", do you think he would have been fired?  Would he have been fired if he questioned the estimated number, 8 million, of Ukrainians killed in the Holomodor, which has long been established as a Plan to wipe put the kulaks? A great many, if not most members of the Canadian Communist Party at one time publicly denied that the Ukrainian "Holocaust" happened, but no one demanded that they be fired.

<p>Malcolm Ross---a published anti-semite,  was fired from his teaching job in New Brunswick even though he was well regarded by students as a good Math teacher who never shared political views with them.

Meanwhile, in BC, the BC Civil Liberties Union defended a  teacher in North Vancouver who was fired by a Catholic School Board when it was learned that he was living common law.  The Board argued that he was a bad role model for Catholic students and that he had violated the values of the school. The BCCLU argued that what this teacher did in his private life was irrelevant to his competence as a teacher. I guess it all depends whose ideological ox is being gored. </p>
<p>In the wake of this story about Mr. Sandau's firing, I am going to have to take a gravol tablet on Remembrance Day, when once again, I will undoubtedly hear someone say "They died so that we could be free". Free? Free to say only things that are deemed to fall within the pale of socially acceptable discourse? Free to repeat only approved history? Is bona fide history only to be written and interpreted by the victors, as Herman Goering cynically said? Apparently. </p>
<p>I had two uncles who fought in the war to rid Europe of Adolph Hitler. One of them didn't come back. I don't believe that either one of them, if they could speak from the grave, who be happy with the kind of country that Canada has become, a place where more and more, people must be worried about what they say. No wonder many have come to regard Canada as a "Soft Totalitarian State".</p>
<p>McCarthyism---from the Right or, as is now the case, from the Left, -- is totally unacceptable. No one should lose his job simply for expressing abhorrent political views. </p>

Freedom of Speech in Canada? No way! Hockey Coach Fired for Pro-National Socialist Facebook Comments

Freedom of Speech in Canada? No way! Hockey Coach Fired for Pro-National Socialist Facebook Comments

 
Free to hold controversial views? Not in politically correct Canada!
 
Doug Christie often warned: “It doesn’t matter what is written in constitutions or Charters of Rights and Freedoms. You only have those rights you are prepared to fight for.”
 
Freedom of speech and freedom of thought are very much in peril in Canada today. Many people just don’t get it.
 
Christopher-Maximillian Sandau posted some of his historical views on his Facebook page. He expressed doubts about the 6-million claim — an article of faith more sacred in political correctness than the divinity of Christ is for Christians. He felt German World War II villainy is exaggerated.
 
The Langley, BC man’s main love in life is coaching amateur hockey. He never tried to indoctrinate the young hockey players. However, when the contents of his Facebook page became known, the local hockey league promptly dismissed him.
 
So, the man is fired for nothing more than the non-violent expression of his political/historical views on his own time. Some anonymous (of course!) parent even pontificates:  “ You can’t be a Nazi and coach kids hockey.” Well, what if you’re a communist, a homosexual activist, or a Zionist? Mr. Sandau denies being a supporter of National Socialism, but, even if her were, so what?
More than ever, CAFE and free speech supporters have our work cut out for us in convincing Canadians of the sacred importance of freedom of thought and freedom of speech.
A minor hockey coach in British Columbia has been fired for posting pro-Nazi content on his Facebook page, conceding to one local reporter following his dismissal: ‘I get it, it’s a really touchy subject.’ Christopher Maximilian Sandau was formally relieved of his duties on Saturday, after the North Delta Minor Hockey Association discovered his online activities. He was coaching teams with players the age of middle school students.

‘Hockey has been my life,’ Sandau told The Surrey Now, a paper headquartered about an hour’s drive east of Vancouver. ‘My view on the history basically got me canned. A lot of people have no idea about the other side of the story.’

‘The posts contained extreme and objectionable material believed to be incompatible with an important purpose of our minor hockey association: ‘To promote and encourage good citizenship,’ association president Anita Cairney said in a release. ‘The (hockey association) requires that our coaches present themselves as positive role models for our children athletes.’ …

The Surrey Now quoted an unidentified parent: ‘You can’t be a Nazi and coach kids hockey.’

A Facebook page under Sandau’s name was pulled down late Wednesday afternoon. Before it disappeared, it was a curated library of sympathetic Nazi images and commentary. One of the most recent posts had been made on Tuesday, featuring a photograph of an undated Nazi rally under the caption: ‘Not too many speakers get the attendance of over a million people from far and wide…’

‘I was doing a good job and I wasn’t trying to impose my political beliefs or anything on anyone,’ Sandau told CTV. “From the time I stepped onto the parking lot of the arena to the time I left, I was all about hockey and trying to help the kids get better.”

Sandau, a 33-year-old resident of Langley, B.C., told The Surrey Now he considered himself ‘a big history buff,” and claimed of the Holocaust: ‘There is no such plan, there was no idea.’

‘These people died from typhus,’ he told the paper. ‘The Germans were actually doing their best to save these people. These people were not that evil as we’re told.’” (National Post, November 5, 2014)

British Columbia Lawyers Just Voted to Discriminate Against Christians

British Columbia Lawyers Just Voted to Discriminate Against Christians

It should be front page news across Canada: British Columbia’s lawyers have just voted to ban any Trinity Western University law school graduate from practicing law in B.C.

Not because these students would be unqualified.

Not because they have done anything unethical.

The opposite, in fact: it’s because Trinity Western students sign a personal conduct pledge to live by Christian values — including to abstain from sex outside a traditional marriage.

Incredibly, this voluntary, personal ethics pledge is the very reason why B.C.’s lawyers are blacklisting Trinity Western students.

It’s shocking. It’s illegal — the Supreme Court of Canada already dealt with this subject, when the B.C. teachers profession tried to blacklist Trinity Western students before. The Supreme Court ruled 8 to 1 in favour of the school.

The benchers of the B.C. law society — that is, the small group of lawyers elected to run the profession — had originally decided to do the right thing, and accredit the university. But a group of anti-Christian bigots forced a province-wide vote on the question. And to the profession’s everlasting shame, a majority of the lawyers who voted, voted for bigotry.

These B.C. lawyers surely know that they’re flouting the Supreme Court’s ruling. But these lawyers don’t care — their own anti-Christian bigotry trumps their belief in the rule of law.

It’s a disgrace.

There are lawyers in B.C. from a variety of religious backgrounds — Muslims, Sikhs, Jews, etc. But only lawyers who follow Christian ethics will be banned.

That’s bigotry. That’s un-Canadian. It cannot stand.

Last night I interviewed Earl Phillips, the executive director of Trinity Western’s law school. He was much more polite than me — maybe that’s his job. But I’m steaming mad.

Here’s the video of our interview

Please watch it, and tell me what you think.

Do you think we should fight back?

We’ve already sent a massive petition to the law society — the largest in B.C. history. But it doesn’t seem to have worked.

I think the next step is to hire a lawyer, to sue the law society, and force them to comply with our Charter of Rights.

We just can’t sit idly by while this discrimination happens right before our very eyes — by the very profession whose mission is to protect our rights.

I’m not ready to announce anything like a lawsuit yet. But I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, we’ve got to keep raising the alarm.

This is bigger than just Trinity Western. This is about freedom of religion for our entire country. This is about stopping the foul precedent that these law societies are setting, that anti-Christian discrimination is somehow acceptable.

Yours truly,

Ezra Levant

29th Annual George Orwell Free Speech Dinner Honours the Late Doug Christie

29th Annual George Orwell Free Speech Dinner Honours the Late Doug Christie



VICTORIA, BC. October 18. The 29th annual George Orwell Free Speech dinner was held her today, drawing free speech supporters from all over British Colmbia and from as far away at Ontario and Texas. Keltie Zubko , editor of Friends of Freeom Newsletter of the Canadian Free Speech League and wife of the late free speech champion Doug Christie, is keeping this annual tradition alive. It was an emotional event and a moving and proper tribute to a man who was a giant in the free speech movement in Canada for over 30 years.

The meeting preceeding the dinner was chaired by law student Jeremy Mattock. He recalled: “I worked with Doug for three years and he inspired me to work for a better, freer, more just society.

He discussed the persecution of the planned Trinity Western University law school. “This would be a Christian university and encourage lawyers to be Christian servants of their clients. However, there have been efforts to prohibit future graduates of Trinity Western Law School from getting articling jobs (essential before being called to the bar). The philosophy of Trinity Western is to ask students and faculty to refrain from excessive use of alcohol and drugs and to maintain traditional Christian standards of sexual morality,” he explained. “Yet, many lawyers want to prohibit such people who voluntarily agree to such restrictions from even practising law.”

He warned: “There are increasing and dangerous restrictions on who can and cannot speak out. Evangelist and author Bill Whatcott was fined $17,000 by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission for expressing the traditional Christian view on homosexuality.”

“How long will it be,” he asked, “before expressing the traditional Christian view on marriage could land you in jail or be excluded from polite society?”

And, he warned, “web publisher Arthur Topham (radicalpress.com) may face jail time for making available on the Internet what’s available in some bookstores and libraries, books like The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and Germany Must Perish. But the government does not go after bookstores or libraries. It goes after the little guy, like Arthur Topham.”


Victoria lawyer Barclay Johnson who wound down much of Mr. Christie’s law practice and represented CAFE in its appeal to Federal Court in the Marc Lemire Sec. 13 case, joked about wearing an Hawaiian happy shirt. He said that crime rates in Canada are falling but police forces keep growing. “Between 2001 and 2012, policing costs rose 8.7% but crime fell 26.7% and police work load decreased,” To justify their expansion and the huge bite they take out of local budgets, police are increasingly in the revenue collecting business. Police salaries are huge. “The average salary for a policeman in Victorias is $96,000 per year,” he said.

“We have way too many police officers. So, they come up with these strategies so that no one will complain about their high salaries. “They are writing tickets like crazy.” He cited a weekend blitz exposed last summer in the Vancouver Province. The RCMP were out in force in the sparsely travelled stretch of Highway 3, between Hope and Princeton. Over 100 cars were seized under civil forfeiture on the spot. One family who had their car seized were in a remote area out of cellphone range. They had to flag passersby just to return to a large town.” That’s also bear country. The police just left them. In that case, Judge Bowden ruled that yiou cabn’t be subject to civil forfeiture for speeding.

Civil forfeiture is a major abuse and both Doug Christie and Barclay Johnson were among the first to expose it more than two years ago. “Why is the government getting into selling used cars? It’s all about money. The municipalities’ biggest expense is policing,” he noted.


]]]]
Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression, gave the keynote presentation about the present state of free speech in Canada. “Sometime next year,” he said, “the B’nai Brith and Richard Warman Sec. 319 ‘hate law’ charges against Arthur Topham will go to trial in Quesnel. Topham is a fearless terrier and will not give up.” CAFÉ has been helping him financially and will continue to help him in this evil case, where he is being prosecuted for material posted on his website radicalpress.com, includingThe Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, Germany Must Perish (a hateful book providing a blueprint for genocide of the German people) and Israel Must Perish, a clever Topham spoof of the previous book. For the prune-faced, humourless politically correct, it was a SATIRE, meant to expose and criticize Germany Must Perish,” Mr. Fromm chided.














“This is a crucial case,” Mr. Fromm warned. “We hope to discredit the ‘hate law’ and challenge its application to the Internet. Interestingly, the first two impugned books are freely available at libraries and at some bookstores. Once again, the law is being used to silence the independent, the little guy.”

Good news: The Ontario Civil Liberties Association has entered the fray on Arthur’s behalf and is circulating an on-line petition urging British Columbia Attorney General Suzanne Anton to withdraw her consent to this “hate law” prosecution.

” In New Brunswick, we will soon go to the New Brunswick Court of Appeal in the matter of the McCorkill will,” he said. Robert McCorkill, a retired chemistry professor willed the U.S.-based National Alliance his collection of rare coins and artefacts, valued at upwards of $250,000. The free speech hating Southern Poverty Law Centre in Montgomery, Alabama objected about this support for “White supremacists.” Ottawa lawyer and frequent human rights complainant Richard Warman alleged the bequest was contrary to “public policy.”

“The next thing we knew,” Mr. Fromm recalled, “Isabelle McCorkell (yes, different spelling), the professor’s long estranged sister, who had made no legal moves since his death in 2004, surfaced and challenged the will seeking to have it overturned as ‘contrary to public policy.’ Umm, was someone whispering in her ear? Almost immediately, the New Brunswick Attorney General, the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs and the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith sought and obtained intervener status. CAFÉ intervened on behalf of the estate.”

“In June, we were stunned by the decision of Mr. Justice Grant to invalidate the bequest,” Mr. Fromm reported. The reason: the bequest was contrary to public policy; that is, the NA’s views were politically incorrect. For good measure, without even a charge or trial, much less evidence or a defence, the judge found that the National Alliance was guilty of violating Canada’s ‘hate laws.’ This decision puts the boots to property rights and freedom of belief and MUST be appealed. We must win this case or the right to bequeath your property to whom you will may have to pass the litmus test of political correctness,” he warned.

“There is a visceral hatred for Christians on the part of most of the political and legal establishment in this country,” Mr. Fromm argueed. He pointed to last year’s decision in the Whatcott case where the “cultural Marxists on the Supreme Court of Canada” basically ruled against public expressions of traditional teaching on homosexuality. Homosexuals are now a designated “vulnerable minority” although the militant homosexual lobby has won almost every battle it has fought. “The Supremos ruled that not scientific truth, not sincerely held religious belief, not political discourse nor hoest opinion were defences against the accusation of exposing a privileged minority to contempt. Quite simply they hate Christians,” Mr. Fromm warned a subdued audience.

And, the appalling harassment of Christian crusader Bill Whatcott continues. Mr. Fromm recounted Mr. Whatcott’s latest run is with cowardice and censorship. “He sought to organize a meeting on Christian morality in the modern world. He had a lawyer vet a proposed ad in the Regina Leader-Post. The Leader-Post refused to run this tasteful and non-inflammatory ad. Thus, it would be hard to advertise his meeting. Mr. Whatcott then ran off and distributed 5,000 leaflets advertising the meeting to be held in Lee’s Funeral Home. The press contacted the home and asked whether they were comfortable with protests. The management, who agreed with Whatcott’s conservative Christian morality, promptly collapsed and cancelled the meeting, much to the delight of the Leader-Post. The Delta Regina, on seeing the publicity, reneged on its booking. Mr. Whatcott then lined up St. Athanasius Ukrainian Catholic Church. It too wimped out fearing negative publicity. Thus, a conservative Christian cannot find a venue and cannot publicly advertise a meeting to discuss morality vis a vis homosexuality and abortion.”

“Many Canadians have only the vaguest commitment to free speech. Businesses often are utter cowards and censors. We have a lot of work to do, not just in protesting to those businesses that trampled on Mr. Whatcott’s rights but in trying to turn more Canadians on to freedom. Doug Christie always said: ‘It doesn’t matter what is in constitutions or Charters of Rights and Freedoms; you only have the rights you are prepared to FIGHT for,’ he concluded.

IHR Meeting Discusses Censorship in Budapest

 

IHR Meeting Discusses Censorship in Budapest

Vienna, Virginia. October 11, 2014. Three participants in last weekend’s much harassed Future of Europe Conference in Budapest delivered their accounts and explanations to a meeting of the Institute for Historical Review (IHR).

Author F. Roger Devlin and Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression, explained the sequence of events. About two weeks before the conference, socialists and the former communist party in Hungary spread wild alarm about the meeting of “White supremacists”.| A media frenzy followed.

The rightist government of Viktor Orban, facing municipal elections, caved in and ordered its interior minister to take all legal measures to shut down the conference. The convention centre where the meeting was to be held cancelled its contract. The hotel where people who registered through NPI were to stay cancelled reservations.

Although Hungarian nationalist party Jobbik had been a key planner of the event, they quickly folded, announcing that they had not known that the National Policy Institute (NPI), the organizers were “White supremacists,” an allegation which is false. Another organizing sponsor Arktos Books also folded.

Key participants, including Alexander Dugin, a former advisor to Vladimir Putin, were denied visas. On the Monday before the conference, NPI founder Bill Regnery, arriving in Budapest from London, was arrested, deported and slapped with a three year ban from the Schengen countries.

On the night before the conference was to occur, about 50 participants were in a Budapest pub. Riot police burst in and checked everyone’s ID. Some were searched. About 30 were detained and taken to their hotels for further investigation. Richard Spencer, the NPI organizer was taken off to jail, held until Monday and then deported. He, too, has been slapped with an arbitrary three year ban from the Schengen countries — all the EU, except England and Croatia.

Nevertheless, an intrepid Jared Taylor and a Hungarian contact salvaged the conference. A restaurant was arranged or Saturday night. About 100 attendees gathered clandestinely and heard short after dinner talks by Mr. Taylor and Professor Tom Sunic.

Frederick Fromm

Well, concluded Paul Fromm, ” we came to Budapest to discuss ‘the future of Europe’ and we saw first hand that the future will have to be fought for. It is a life and death struggle between the Cultural Marxists who are engineering the genocidal replacement of Europeans by the Third World and nationalists or Identitarians who wish to preserve the national characteristics of their lands and who want to keep Europe European. The methods of the Cultural Marxists involve repression,” he concluded.

IHR Director Mark Weber had also been in Budapest and offered a broader explanation of what had happened. “Before an earthquake takes place,” he said, “there are powerful movements of forces within the earth. Last May’s political earthquake was the election to the European Parliament of a large number of nationalists and Euroskeptics like Marine LePen’s National Front, UKIP in Britain and Jobbik in Hungary, This caused an unprecedented level of anxiety in the U.S. and European political establishments.”

The election results showed the bankruptcy of both conservative and socialist parties. They ignore chronic youth unemployment and seem helpless before the greed of multinationals. “People sense something is wrong,” Mr. Weber said. “Europeans are dying out and, with each passing year, America is becoming more and more unrecognizable — a Third World country,” he added.

Germany is Abolishing Itself, a recent book by a long-time member of Germany’s socialist party and former Governor of the Bundesbank, Thilo Sarrazin sold more than 1.5-million copies and set off shockwaves. “This reasoned and logical book and its author were furiously denounced by the media and the political establishment. Sarrazin stresses deep rooted social, economic and genetic problems,” Mr. Weber explained. Germany is threatened by a low birthrate. The Golden Age of German’s post war economy is ending. The income of the average worker has not increased in 20 years.

For the post war years, each generation is one third smaller than the previous one but people are living longer. ‘Germans,” said Mr. Weber, “live self-centred lives. There is a dull fatalistic sense of a future where Germany will decline as will the population’s intelligence and skill. Intelligence is 80 per cent determined by genetics. We know that the average intelligence level in the West has been declining. And the average immigrant to Europe is less intelligent than the average German.”

However, the U.S. works to break down active ethnic solidarity world wide. “The Americanization of Europe means the ethnic extinction of Europe,” Mr. Weber warned. “Without Europeans, Europe is just a geographic designation. There can be no real Europe without Europeans. The central fact of American history is that it was founded and developed by Europeans,” he explained. “If it had been founded by Africans, it would be like Haiti’. You cannot a society like Denmark with a population of Mexicans.”

“The breakdown of the West,” he stressed, “is the result of radical egalitarianism and individualism. A 100 years ago, the whole world, with the exception of Japan and Ethiopia was dominated by Europeans. Today, Europe cannot or will not even protect its heartland.’

“The end of World War II was a catastrophe for the West. French author Celine saw the Axis forces as the bulwark of Europe against the egalitarianism of Soviet Communism,: Mr. Weber said.

“A nation that embraces an ideology not rooted in reality will not survive nor does it deserve to,” he concluded.

OCLA Petition: Congratulations and Thank You to all who have signed it

October 20, 2014

Please do your best to share this email and petition with friends and family and associates. We need to build the support for the OCLA initiative by increasing the signatures into the thousands. See additional information on the OCLA petition below:

 
 
Dear Supporters of Freedom of Expression, 

Please take a moment to read and consider signing OCLA’s petition in defence of the civil rights of Arthur Topham, a BC man who is currently being prosecuted under a “Hate Propaganda” section of Canada’s Criminal Code. The petition is online at the following link: http://www.change.org/p/hon-suzanne-anton-attorney-general-of-bc-jag-minister-gov-bc-ca-hon-suzanne-anton-retract-your-consent-for-the-criminal-proceedings-against-mr-arthur-topham?utm_source=guides&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=petition_created
 
OCLA has the position that sections 318 to 320 of the Criminal Code should be repealed. These sections allow egregious violations of the civil rights of liberty, just process, and freedom of expression. Under these provisions, a person can be jailed without the Crown being required to prove any actual harm to a single identified individual.
 
Mr. Topham was arrested in front of his spouse, detained, subjected to a home-invasive seizure, and faces jail time if convicted, for expressing his highly unpopular views.
 
OCLA’s public statement on this matter is available at: http://ocla.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/OCLA-statement-re-Arthur-Topham.pdf
 
Please read OCLA’s letter to the BC Attorney General asking her to withdraw her consent for this prosecution, which is available at: http://ocla.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/2014-09-24-Letter-OCLA-to-AG-of-BC.pdf

Tremaine Free; Christian Evangelist Bill Whatcott “A Security Risk”?

Tremaine Free; Christian Evangelist Bill Whatcott “A Security Risk”?
VICTORIA, BC. October 18, 2014. This morning I received a call from political prisoner Terry Tremaine who had just been freed from his vindictive 30 day sentence imposed AFTER he had purged his contempt; that is, removed or asked to be removed (by STORMFRONT) several dozen postings that had been complained of by his longtime tormentor Richard Warman.
 
Mr. Tremaine had commented to me several days before his release for civil contempt against a law that Parliament has repealed (Sec. 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act): “Those characters is judges robes were determined to give me a custodial sentence. There is terrible overcrowding in Saskatchewan prisons. They were transferring inmates from the crowded jail in Saskatoon to Regina. This was clearly a punitive, political sentence. They should have given me a suspended sentence or an ankle bracelet.”

Political prisoner Terry Tremaine
 
Political prisoners are clearly treated more harshly in Canada, expense to the taxpayer be damned.
 
Meanwhile, activist and evangelist Bill Whatcott wanted to visit Mr. Tremaine in prison, partly in support of free speech and partly as the imperative of his Bibilical duty to comfort the afflicted and visit the imprisoned. Unlike many who talk a lot about religion, Mr. Whatcott actually practices what he proclaims. So, he applied to the prison to visit Mr. Tremaine. Mr. Tremaine duly signed an authorization accepting a visit by Mr. Whatcott.
 
However, no visit ever took place. “Saskatchewan Corrections turned me down as a ‘security risk’,” Mr. Whatcott told CAFE. “I’m not going to break the guy out. He’s only serving 30 days,” he scoffed. “I am not a drug pusher.”
 
Authorities regularly invoke “security” to justify bullying and repression. Visitors see the prisoners behind a plexiglass barrier.  The notion that the 50ish evangelist would somehow be a danger to Mr. Tremaine or the prison is ludicrous. The “security threat” assertion becomes even more inane when we consider that Mr. Whatcott and I both visisted another political prisoner, Brad Love in Lindsay in May. Ontario’s prisons seemed to have no problem with Mr. Whatcott visiting Mr. Love or another female political prisoner, anti-abortion campaigner Linda Gibbons, then incarcerated in Milton in the Vanier Centre for Women. – Paul Fromm

VELVET REPRESSION: HOW THE CHRISTIAN HATERS CURTAIL CHRISTIAN WITNESS IN REGINA

VELVET REPRESSION: HOW THE CHRISTIAN HATERS CURTAIL CHRISTIAN WITNESS IN REGINA

Evangelist and author Bill Whatcott is a determined guy, but he has run into a brick wall of Christian-hating bigotry and cowardice in Regina. Bill wanted to hold a meeting focusing on Christian morality in these troubled times. He lined up three speakers: peter LaBarbera, President Americans for Truth About Homosexuality; Father Jeffrey Stefaniuk, Ukrainian Catholic Priest Father Stephaniuk will expound on the Catholic teaching of separation of church and state, and Susan Takata, Ex Gay ministries, Christian missionary,
 
He sought to advertise this event planned for October 28 in the local daily newspaper The Regina Leader-Post. A copy of the proposed ad, vetted by a lawyer, appears below. It was informative and neither inflammatory nor insulting. However, after a quick perusal, the ONLY daily newspaper in town rejected the ad, without explanation.
 
See, how Canada’s Christian-hating system works is that it will hypocritically purr: “Of course, you are free to hold a meeting and free to express your religious beliefs.” What they don’t add is: “But we won’t let you tell the public and we’ll try to deny you a meeting venue.”
 
Not to be deterred the determined Whatcott took a week off work — that’s a week without pay. He booked Lee’s Funeral Home for the meeting and printed up 5,000 flyers announcing his meeting. Then, with the help of a few friends, he physically delivered these flyers door to door.
 
Then, disaster struck. Just as the last of the flyers had been delivered, he got a call from Lee’s Funeral Home. Someone from the press had called and inquired whether they would be comfortable with  protests against this meeting. If the call was from the press, it was especially reprehensible. It was a case of the press trying to MAKE news not report it. Worse, the call was a mischievous threat much like some gangster putting a big paw on your shoulder and asking whether you’d like him to pay a visit to your home. “Visit” in this context doesn’t mean coffee and cookies but serious trouble!
 
Anyway, Canada being the land of the wimp and the coward, in no time Lee’s Funeral Home collapsed and cancelled a contract where cash had already exchanged hands. Worse, the funeral home director knew and agreed with Mr. Whatcott’s Christian traditionalism.
 
The Leader-Post, which wouldn’t let Mr. Whatcott (October 16, 2014) advertise the meeting reported gleefully on its cancellation. They quoted funeral home Greg Kulak: “

“They will not be using our facility,” said Kulak. “This doesn’t lend with our core values.”Assuming the quotation is accurate, it is illiterate and impenetrable — “lend with our core values”? It’s a funeral home that prepares corpses and buries people. How is traditional Christianity contrary to the home’s “core values”?
 
By now, the resourceful Mr. Whatcott had booked another venue — the Regina Delta. As soon as the Leader-Post smear appeared, the cowardly Delta reneged on the booking: ” Please be advised that we will not be proceeding with your event planned for our facility on October 28th. The space has been cancelled. – Doreen (Doreen Smith)
I urge you to protest to both Greg Kulak and the Delta. Doug Christie always said:  “It doesn’t matter what is written in constitutions or charters of rights and freedoms. You only have those rights you are prepared to fight for.” Trudeau’s phony Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which actually curtails individual rights in favour of group rights, is a huge fraud. Many Canadian businesses have absolutely no commitment to basic freedoms.
Here are the people to whom you should protest:

Bringing the Light of Christ to our culture!

Image
Peter LaBarbera, President Americans for Truth About Homosexuality
Peter will be lecturing on how the Bible applies to today’s culture and how Canadian Christians are to respond to such issues as same sex marriage, euthanasia, abortion, pre-marital sex and easy divorce. 

Image
Father Jeffrey Stefaniuk, Ukrainian Catholic Priest
Father Stephaniuk will expound on the Catholic teaching of separation of church and state. Father will also share his thoughts on what it means to be a human being made in God’s image and the tension between the Christian concept of human beings being created with an infinite value vs the secular and utilitarian concept of human life having a value relative to the perceived quality of one’s life.

Image
Susan Takata, Ex Gay ministries, Christian missionary
Susan will give her testimony of how God took her from a life filled with pain, depression, sexual abuse and struggles with her gender identity. Susan will share how she tried to live her life as a man for many years and how through the love of Christ and the compassion of her local church, she was able to accept the gender she was born into. Susan is now living a fulfilled life as a woman and is ministering to others struggling with issues of sexuality and gender identity.

Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in an evening of learning and respectful dialogue!
Beverages and snacks will be provided!
Join us!

Conference will be held at Lee Funeral Home, 3101 Dewdney Ave, Regina, SK, Tuesday, October 28, 6:00 – 9:00 PM [/del]
Note: Due to Lee breaking contract with our conference we have had to change venue. Our conference is still being held on the same day, but at a different location. You can either go to Lee Funeral Home at 6 PM and someone will be there on the sidewalk to let you know where the new location is or you can call Bill Whatcott 306-861-6140 for more information

A voluntary donation will be requested to cover conference expenses

For more information please contact Bill Whatcott, Executive Director, Christian Truth Activists
Phone: 306-861-6140, e-mail: billwhatcott @gmail.com, website: http://www.freenorthamerica.ca

End of Flyer

Anyways, upon receiving the rejection e-mail, I promptly got to work printing 5,000 flyers adverting the conference. I drove to Regina this evening with my box full of flyers and got to work going door to door advertising this intellectually stimulating and inspirational conference. I will likely be in Regina all week delivering the 5,000 flyers door to door. If there are any volunteers who would like to do door to door with me letting the public know this conference is open and that everyone has an opportunity to challenge their assumptions and learn, please give me a call or send me an e-mail! I got out 250 flyers tonight and have 4750 more to go!

I will be going to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission tomorrow at 10:00 am to file a complaint against the Regina Leader Post. They are the only major newspaper in Regina and pretty much have a near total monopoly on print media in this city. There certainly is a compelling interest for conservative Christians in insuring Regina’s only major newspaper becomes less discriminatory towards our point of view.

Please pray for these two endeavours.

In Christ’s Service

Whatcott conference: Sexuality & religious freedom censored!

Whatcott loses venue for conference 
THE LEADER-POST
OCTOBER 16, 2014
http://www.leaderpost.com/news/Whatcott … story.html

REGINA — A conference featuring one well-known anti-gay activist and organized by another is looking for a new venue after the original host pulled out upon hearing more about the event.

Bill Whatcott planned to hold a conference at Lee Funeral Home in Regina on Oct. 28 to discuss Christian views of sexuality.

But after learning more about the conference, Greg Kulak, general manager of the funeral home, decided it would not be happening.

“They will not be using our facility,” said Kulak. “This doesn’t lend with our core values.”

Kulak explained Wednesday he was under the impression that the event was a part of bimonthly meetings held by the St. Pius X Catholic Church. “I thought it was basically Latin mass.”

Kulak received calls about the conference from concerned residents who received a flyer in the mail advertising the event.

The conference ― Bringing the Light of Christ to Our Culture ― was to feature Peter LaBarbera, president of the U.S.-based Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. LaBarbera ran into problems during his last visit to Saskatchewan.

On April 14, LaBarbera and Whatcott were arrested on the University of Regina campus allegedly for refusing to leave when instructed by campus security to do so. Whatcott and LaBarbera set up an anti-abortion display and were handing out anti-LGBT literature.

Whatcott and LaBarbera stand trial on Oct. 30 in Regina charged with mischief.

Whatcott, executive director of Christian Truth Activists and the conference’s organizer, said he is talking to a lawyer about the funeral home’s cancellation, alleging a breach of contract. Despite the setback, he insists the conference will go ahead.

“I am looking for (an) alternative venue. And, ultimately, I’ll just trust God. If I get a place, I’ll get it. And if I don’t get it, it’ll be on Lee’s sidewalk. We’ll just hold the conference there or in his parking lot and he can arrest us and take us out,” Whatcott said.

“I haven’t given up. I was a little surprised that (Kulak) bailed.”

Also scheduled to speak at the conference was Jeffrey Stefaniuk, a Ukrainian Catholic priest and Susan Takata, a Christian missionary.

“My take on events in Canada is (that) Christians are, sort of, maligned and under siege,” said Whatcott. “And, certainly my belief, and what I want with the speakers that I’ve chosen is to bring a message that as Christians we do have something to offer to the public square. And, we should not be afraid, in these times, to bring our point of view forward.”

Days before the U of R incident, LaBarbera spoke at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life convention on April 11 and 12 in Weyburn. The event was met by protesters and a petition with hundreds of signatures intended to stop LaBarbera from speaking. LaBarbera was initially denied entry into Canada over concerns that he was spreading hate speech. But he won an appeal and agreed to leave the country by April 17.

In 2005, the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission found Whatcott guilty of inciting hatred against homosexuals in pamphlets he distributed to homes in Regina and Saskatoon in 2001 and 2002. That decision was upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada on Feb. 27, 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the SHRC’s decision.

Dear Friends,

For the sake of truth I would like to inform my readers this statement by Kulak is not true:

Kulak explained Wednesday he was under the impression that the event was a part of bimonthly meetings held by the St. Pius X Catholic Church. “I thought it was basically Latin mass.”

In actual fact I gave Greg Kulak a copy of the flyer I distributed throughout Regina and he read it before taking $395.00 off my Mastercard for the conference

You can see the flyer here and it is quite clear we were a conference on sexuality and religious freedom from a Christian perspective, not a Latin mass:
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10239

“Kulak received calls about the conference from concerned residents who received a flyer in the mail advertising the event.”

Yup that is all it took for a fellow Christian to cave and then bear false witness in the media and in the process make those who are anti-Christian and anti-free-speech very happy….. sad1

(Here is one group that is happy that Lee has terminated our meeting https://www.facebook.com/groups/intolerancefreeweyburn/ The Leader Post Reporter seemed pleased the conference was shut down too)

Of course God is still in control and His Church will still bear witness to what is true. I just ask for prayers. When Christians do this I find it discouraging…….

To call Lees and call on Greg to apologize for selling out Whatcott, simply to avoid some negative publicity and crank calls from leftist censors and to either reinstate the conference or compensate Whatcott for all his lost advertising, air tickets and lost wages for his speakers who are coming two days before Bill’s trial because they were supposed to speak at the venue I rented for them, and the $395 hall and catering deposit please call:
