Maxime Bernier Sets Penticton Audience on Fire: “When Tyranny Takes Control, Revolution is a Necessity!”
Penticton, British Columbia, September 5, 2021.A confident Maxime Bernier wowed an enthusiastic rally of over 300 people today at Penticton’s Gyro Park. The People’s Party of Canada founder and leader called for a freedom revolution by Canada’s Dispossessed Majority: ” “When Tyranny Takes Control, Revolution is a Necessity! … Our goal is to unite all Canadians under the freedom banner,” he added. I want to live in a country described 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. “ Mr. Bernier, the first federal leader to visit the Okanagan this election cycle took aim at Prime Minister Justin Tudeau: “Justin Trudeau is the most divisive prime minister in Canadian history. “He has divided us by race, by religion and now by vaccination status,” he said to enthusiastic applause. Many of his supporters held anti-forced vaccination signs and were veterans of END THE LOCKDOWN rallies over the past 18 months in Kelowna and Penticton. Mr. Bernier is the only federal leader dissenting from the COVID-hysteria and freedom sapping policies many politicians have imposed. “This virus only endangers those elderly people with several co-morbidities,” he argued. There should be no forced masking, no imposed vaccines and no more lockdowns, he said to prolonged applause. It’s time to develop and made-in-Canada health policy, to defund the World Health Organization (WHO) and fire “that Theresa”(Tam) woman.
“The People’s Party of Canada will fight for Canadians regardless of their race or sex or vaccination status,” he promised.”We want our country back. It’s all about government control versus individual freedom.” He said that last week, the mainstream media, which usually ignores him and the People’s Party, called to see if he would condemn protesters, many from the END THE LOCKDOWN movement, which picked Justin Trudeau’s meetings in Bolton and Cambridge, Ontario. “I told them, no. I am the only leader not condemning them. I am encouraging them to speak out for freedom.”
Mr. Bernier noted the bias of much of the media and the discriminatory exclusion from this week’s leadership debates. He urged supporters to spread the word about the party and its platform on the social media: “Be active on the social media,” he urged, “as most of the mainstream media will not be covering us.”
Maxime Bernier assailed promises by both Justin Trudeau and Conservative leader Erin O’Toole to balance the budget in the distant future, without cuts by magic. This is impossible, he scoffed. The People’sParty is not afraid to cut programmes, he said, for instance: “cut foreign aid by $5-billion and keep the money in Canada; cut corporate welfare — no more handouts to Bombardier and General Motors — by $10-billion; cut the $1.5-billion that funds the CBC.” The crowd exploded with cheers at these proposed cuts.
The People’s Party of Canada local candidates — Sean Taylor for South Okanagan-West Kootenay and Kathryn McDonald for Central Okanagan—Similkameen—Nicola — were introduced and distributed literature and lawn signs to eager volunteers.Maxime Bernier stayed for almost an hour afterwards posing for photos with well wishers and answering questions. He then headed up the road to Kelowna for a mid-afternoon rally that attracted about 400 people.
Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression, commented: “I’ve been attending political rallies since 1965 and this is the first one that ever started on time. Kudos to Maxime Bernier and the local organizers. ” — Paul Fromm
Five Globalists will shoot the shit in next week’s controlled “leaders’ debate. The only nationalist, pro-freedom candidate Maxime Bernier is excluded. The PPC is now consistently polling ahead of the Green Party, & has candidates in over 90% of ridings; Greens in less than 75%.
Next week, Party Leaders will descend on the National Capital Region to take part in the Federal Leaders’ Debates organized by a government-appointed agency.
All except one.
As you are probably already aware, PPC Leader Maxime Bernier was unjustly excluded from these debates.
The PPC is now consistently polling ahead of the Green Party, and has candidates in over 90% of ridings across the country while the Greens have candidates in less than 75% of ridings.
Why is Annamie Paul included while Maxime Bernier is left out?
Because the Green Party does not disrupt the mainstream narrative! The establishment knows that if Max is given a credible platform, his message will resonate with average Canadians, and the narrative will crumble.
We will not stand by while the establishment elites in the government and media try to silence us.
We will be gathering outside the venue on Thursday, September 9th to show our support for Max and the PPC and demonstrate that we will not be ignored!
The goal of our movement is to ignite white identity across the country, with the ultimate objective of preserving as much of the remaining European Canada as we can. To achieve this, we have many possible strategies at our disposal, ranging from simple acts like mailing flyers and putting up posters to more complex ones such as organizing small protests. Underground activism is crucially important and must be pursued with unrelenting vigour. Political activism, however, is often overlooked. A right-wing populist-nationalist party, despite not explicitly advocating for the interests of white Canadians, is an excellent avenue for this type of activism.
Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party is the single largest collection of angry old stock Canadians in decades. Enraged by hate speech laws, climate alarmism, vaccine mandates, excessive taxation, political correctness, the sale of Canadian land and resources to proxies of the Chinese state, anti-white teaching in public schools and universities, and massive unrelenting non-European immigration, they have gone off the reservation and thrown their support behind the one candidate who dares oppose the political and media establishment.
Bernier has many problems, all of which I will admit freely. His fanatical libertarian religious belief in the free market leads him to endorse policies that are damaging to his own political prospects at present, and even to the country if he gets back into Parliament. His attack on the “milk and dairy cartel”, despite dairy producers making up a significant portion of his own riding of Beauce (Quebec), was incredibly poorly thought out. Deeper than this, an unlimited free market rips apart tight-knit local communities and reduces Man to a mere economic unit. It’s the opposite of conservatism. And then there’s his habit of calling the Left the “real racists” and Trudeau a “fascist”, which reveals either a misunderstanding of the current political situation, or an unwillingness to call our enemies honest descriptive names such as “globalist” or “anti-white”.
Bernier’s outlook has problems, but one of the marks of wisdom is the willingness to work with what you’ve got. We have to be wise. If this were the 80s or 90s, maybe we could afford to waste decades waiting for a politician to come along and say all the things that the Council of European Canadians believes in the exact way we say them. But it’s 2021; our people are on track to become a minority within 10-15 years and the federal government is preparing hate speech laws to target us. Now is the time for serious action, not pointless daydreaming.
Patriotic Canadians are beginning to wake up to a semblance of the reality that we at the CEC have known for years. They realize that Trudeau’s regime isn’t just “goofy” or “too politically correct”; it is seeking to eradicate the Canada we grew up with. Protesters have been chasing Trudeau across the country and crashing his campaign stops. In Bolton, Ontario, 200 protesters forced the prime minister to cancel a rally when his Liberal supporters were outnumbered by the protesters. In another embarrassing turn of events, he ventured into a neighbourhood and was pursued down the street by angry citizens yelling obscenities. In Cambridge, Trudeau was forced by protesters to delay his speech; when it did start, his voice was nearly drowned out by honking horns and yells.
One of 200 anti-Trudeau protesters in Bolton, Ontario Erin O’Toole denounced the protesters, saying they had gone too far. Bernier, on the other hand, was sympathetic: “Trudeau spent the last six years telling Canadians many of them were racists and white supremacists. And now he can’t understand why some are yelling back obscenities at him?”. Bernier is right. Although the media is right that much of the anti-Trudeau protesting is based on opposition to vaccine mandates and lockdowns, the extent is being exaggerated. There is an obvious undercurrent of general anti-Trudeau sentiment in the conservative countryside, and a significant aspect of it is a vaguely expressed but genuinely felt notion that Trudeau is tearing down our national identity.
We can help crystallize this notion. There is palpable anger in our country right now, but it is only partially formed; the rage of Canadians who can sense that things are going extremely wrong, and that Trudeau has something to do with it. People are beginning to realize that statue removals, the renaming of street and schools, influxes of Muslim refugees, and mass non-European immigration are all part of a program that will lead to the abrogation of who we are as a people. I call on all members of the European Canadian movement to join the People’s Party and inform our fellow citizens about what’s really going on.
The clearest immediate benefit of this to expand the numbers of readers, writers, and donors in our movement. Joining your local People’s Party club or committee will put you in direct contact with freethinking Canadians willing to challenge the orthodoxies of the day. Once informed about the true nature of the mass immigration agenda, how it is reducing white Canadians to a minority in the service of radical leftist ideologues, banks, and massive corporations, most will recognize this as a bad thing that has to be fought. They will be extremely glad to hear about eurocanadian.ca, since freethinkers in this time of mainstream media misinformation are always looking for websites that don’t push a globalist establishment agenda. They will be overjoyed and astonished to hear about dissident academic Ricardo Duchesne and the books that he has written about Canada and the West. Furthermore, to redpill one person is to redpill dozens, through the chain effect of all the family and friends they will pass this information on to.
Cambridge, Ontario, Trudeau Welcoming Committee This is not to mention the possibility that we actually end up electing one or two People’s Party candidates (not necessarily Bernier) in rural ridings in this or future elections. If this happens, we may well have a nationalist voice in Parliament. Candidate Chelsea Hillier, PPC candidate for Elgin-Middlesex-London, ran a great ad showing videos of statues being toppled, declaring that Canada is experiencing a “systematic destruction of our cultural identity” and filmed a statement with a Red Ensign on the wall behind her desk. Imagine if we got her, or a similar candidate, into Parliament. The Overton Window would be pushed further as Canadians watch the mainstream media and political leaders viciously denounce the private member’s bills she would introduce to restrict immigration and protect statues.
The People’s Party has the potential to become a nationalist party with candidates in many rural ridings advocating implicit white identity politics in Parliament, with a strong CEC contingent in every local committee continuously redpilling new party members. With any luck, implicit white identity could spread to local politics in small towns, where mayoral candidates could win based on cultural and social conservatism. Of course, this would only be the political strategy of the CEC; our strategies of underground activism currently being pursued anonymously by members in their own communities must remain our strongest focus. To sacrifice the opportunities offered to us by this new political party, however, would be a great misfortune.
Meme magic? I was recently walking through Richmond, Vancouver, and for block after block I saw nothing but Chinese signs and Asian restaurants and stores. Asian immigrants have entirely replaced the population of this area. A great Greek philosopher once said there is no loss like the loss of one’s homeland. I felt that loss deeply as I walked through this sprawling Chinese colony on Canadian soil. We all feel this loss. If you live in a big city, you might feel it daily. If you live in a small town, you probably feel it when you go to spots you used to love in big cities that have been ethnically, culturally, and linguistically transformed beyond recognition.
The answer to this is not to despair or discard practical strategy, but rather to acknowledge the severity of the situation and fight back. It won’t be a particularly glamorous fight, or even a dramatic one, but through a long slog we can wake Canadians up to the war being waged against their heritage. We can preserve European Canada in large swathes of the rural regions and form local organizations dedicated to the advancement of our culture. We can fight back against “rural immigration programs” and anti-white curriculums in public schools. The fact that the globalist establishment is implementing hate speech legislation and internet censorship show that the fight is not lost. They fear us telling the truth to Canadians. And they should.
The slogan “my body, my choice” is not a new one. It has been around for years and, until practically yesterday, everyone who heard it – or read it on a placard – knew who the person saying it –or holding the placard – was and what this person was talking about. That person was someone who identified as “pro-choice”, the choice in question being the choice of a woman to have an abortion.
Those of us who were on the right side of the abortion debate, the side that generally went by the label “pro-life”, would answer this slogan by pointing out that it was not just the woman’s body that would be affected by the abortion. The unborn baby inside her would also be affected. Indeed, its life would be terminated as that is the essential nature of an abortion. The pro-choice movement has gone to great lengths to disguise the true nature of abortion from itself, and from those women contemplating one. They use euphemistic language like “reproductive rights”, “reproductive health”, and the like in order to depict abortion as being merely a routine medical procedure. They object strenuously to efforts by the pro-life movement to shatter this façade and bring the true nature of abortion out into the open by, for example, showing graphic depictions of aborted babies.
It can no longer be assumed, when one hears the slogan “my body, my choice”, that the person speaking is talking about abortion. Indeed, it is probably safe to say that if you hear that slogan today, the chances are that the person saying it is not talking about abortion at all. This is because in the last couple of months or so the slogan has been adopted by a different group of people altogether, those who are on the right side of the forced vaccine debate and are bravely standing up to the mob which, scared senseless by two years of media fear porn about the bat flu virus, is supporting governments in their efforts to shove needles into everyone’s arms whether they want them or not.
The mob’s answer to this new use of the slogan, when they bother to respond with anything other than “shut up and do what you are told” is similar to the pro-life movement’s answer to the pro-abortion use of the slogan. It is not just our bodies, they tell us. It is our duty to do our part to take the jab in order to protect others from the bat flu and if we don’t do our part the government should force us to do so by making our lives as miserable as possible until we do.
Before showing how and why the pro-life movement was right in its answer to the slogan as used by the pro-abortion movement while the supporters of forced vaccination are wrong in their answer to the slogan, it might be interesting to observe another way in which these two seemingly disparate issues intersect. Among those of us who are on the side of the angels against forced vaccination there are those who are merely against vaccines being coerced and there are those who have objections to the vaccines qua vaccines. Those who object to the vaccines qua vaccines could be further divided into those who are against all vaccines on principle and those who have problems with the bat flu vaccines specifically. The latter include a large number of traditionalist Roman Catholics and Orthodox, evangelical Protestants, and other religious conservatives. One of the reasons more religious conservatives have objected to the bat flu vaccines is that the mRNA type vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna) are developed from research that used a cell line originally derived from an aborted foetus and the Johnson & Johnson viral vector vaccine used a cell line from a different aborted foetus in its production and manufacturing stage.
Now, let us consider some differences between these scenarios that render the pro-life movement’s response to “my body, my choice” valid, and the pro-forced vaccination mob’s response to the same invalid.
The pro-life movement objects that “my body, my choice” is not a valid defense of abortion because abortion causes the death of someone other than the woman choosing to have an abortion. This is a strong argument because a) abortion always, in every instance, and indeed, by definition, causes such a death, b) the death is always of a specific someone who is known, to the extent an unnamed person can be known, and c) the death is always intentional on the part of the persons performing and having the abortion. The opposite of all of this is true in the case of someone who rejects the bat flu vaccines. Someone not getting a vaccine is never the direct cause of another person’s death. An unvaccinated person can only transmit the virus to someone else if he himself has the virus. Even if he does have the virus and does transmit it to someone else that other person is far more likely to survive the virus than to die from it. This is true even if the other person is in the most-at-risk category. It would be extremely rare, if it happens at all, that causing another person, let alone a specific other person, to die would be part of the intent in deciding not to be vaccinated. Therefore, the argument that the pro-life movement uses against “my body, my choice” in the case of abortion, does not hold up as an argument against the same in the case of forced vaccination.
A second important difference is in how the expression “my body, my choice” is used by the two groups. The pro-choice movement uses it against those who would prohibit women from having an abortion. The opponents of forced vaccination use it against those who would compel everybody to take an injection. To compel somebody to do something requires a much stronger justification than to prohibit them from doing something. This is especially the case when it comes to medical procedures. A reasonable justification for denying someone a medical procedure that is not urgently needed to save the person’s life from immediate danger is far more conceivable than such a justification for compelling someone to undergo a medical procedure. In the case of the bat flu vaccines, the clinical trials of which will not be completed for another two years, many of which include mRNA which has never been used in vaccines before, which increase the risk of the heart conditions pericarditis and myocarditis, as well as thrombosis (blood clots) and Bell’s palsy, and which is for a respiratory disease that people who are young and healthy have well over a 99% chance of surviving and even those who are not young and healthy are far more likely to survive than not, the idea that compelling anyone to take these could ever be rationally justified is morally repugnant.
So we see that “my body, my choice” is weak and invalid with regards to abortion but is strong and valid with regards to forced vaccination (vaccine mandates, vaccine passports, etc.) The only reason there is a mob supporting and calling for the latter today, is because people and businesses have been terrorized by the media and their governments and subjected to hellish lockdowns and restrictions for almost two years, are sick of it, would agree to almost anything to be rid of it, and so they jumped aboard the forced vaccination bandwagon when the public health mandarins said that we need vaccine mandates and vaccine passports to avoid another lockdown. The public health mandarins are lying, however, as they have been lying since day one of the bat flu pandemic. All that is needed for us to avoid another lockdown is for governments to start respecting our constitutional rights and freedoms and the constitutional limits on their own power. They will only do this if we insist upon it. Letting them get away with forced vaccination is not a step towards the return of freedom, but towards greater tyranny. — GERRY T. 19, FREEDOM, MRNA, TYRANNY, VACCINES

FraserValleyPPC.ca PRESS RELEASELabour Day Fraser Valley Rally with Max Bernier ABBOTSFORD, BC – The Fraser Valley PPC EDA is pleased to host the leader of the People’s Party of Canada, Maxime Bernier, at the Fraser Valley Rally. The rally will take place between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at the Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford on Saturday, September 4, 2021.The event will include several candidates from as far east as Hope, as far north as Lillooet, and as far west as the GVRD.
It is time to make a stand against the outrageous totalitarian behaviour that the other parties and governments continue to illegally press on the citizens of Canada. “We are citizens with a mosaic and thriving Canadian identity, persons and peoples of all beliefs, lifestyles, and perspectives, who stand united under the longstanding Canadian values of freedom, respect, fairness, and responsibility,” said Timothy Knight, acting CEO, Fraser Valley PPC EDA.
The number one issue in front of Canadians is the government’s totalitarian response to COVID-19.The standard approach to pandemic management had always been to protect the vulnerable and allow the rest of the healthy population to go about their regular lives while building herd immunity. Lockdowns of entire populations were never part of any pre-covid pandemic planning. Max Bernier commits, “We will repeal vaccine mandates!

The proposed laws, expected to be introduced to state parliament in the first half of 2022 with bipartisan support, will prohibit the display of swastikas and other “hate symbols” in public spaces.
The Australian federal police earlier this year called for a ban on “extremist insignia and propaganda”, The Guardian reported.
Alongside the ban, Victoria will introduce sweeping new changes to anti-vilification protections, which will be extended to cover areas such as “sexual orientation, gender identity and people with disabilities”.
The state attorney general, Jaclyn Symes, said that the new anti-vilification laws, along with the banning of National Socialist imagery, would “send a strong signal” to Victorians.
The Liberal member for Caulfield, David Southwick, agreed. His Melbourne electorate has a large Jewish population and Southwick said he had seen an escalation in recent years of the prevalence of “hate symbols”.
“A couple of years ago we saw a swastika painted on an aged care retirement home full of Holocaust survivors … and it’s not just an issue for the Jewish community, it’s right across the board,” Southwick said.
Last year, it was reported that a Swastika flag was flown over a home in north-west Victoria, with the local authorities unable to order its removal because it was legal.
“This abhorrent behaviour has no place in our state. The fact that you’re having to ban something that shouldn’t be happening in 2021 is quite sad, but it’s necessary,” Symes said.
Thursday’s announcement was widely supported by anti-White groups around Australia. Peter Wertheim, the co-chief executive officer of peak Jewish body the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, congratulated the Victorian government.
“New codes and symbols are continually being developed by hate groups and the legislation will need to be flexible enough to capture this,” he said.
“We hope the federal government will follow suit.”
The Equality Australia CEO, Anna Brown, also released a statement strongly supporting the move.
“We look forward to working with the government … to ensure the report’s recommendations are swiftly implemented,” she said.
So far, the new laws would only ban “hate symbols” in physical public spaces, although discussions will take place at a federal level with regards to online spaces.
Symes will be looking to engage the federal attorney general, Michaelia Cash, later in the year on banning internet distribution of these sacred symbols.
“I hope that other states will follow our lead … but I think anything that we can do as a nation to prevent these hurtful symbols and the messages that they convey should be considered by all states. We want to send a message to people that are flirting with neo-nazism that this is not something that Australia accepts,” she said.
CAFE Supports No Forced Vaxxing” Rally in Penticton
PENTICTON, BRITISH COLUMBIA September 1, 2021. Over 100 freedom fighters staged a rally outside the Penticton General Hospital today. This was part of a Canada-wide day of protest against forced vaxxing of nurses and other medical personnel and, more generally, against the imposition of vaccine passports soon to be required for entry to restaurants and indoor gatherings in Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Manitoba.
Protesters stressed the importance of individual choice and freedom, Many people have religious or medical objections to these COVID-19 vaccines. Many are hesitant and others rebel at the imposition of what is supposed to be a “good thing.”
Several women wondered why there were no feminists out at the protest. Their slogan “my body, my choice” applies to abortions, which all federal party leaders except Maxime Bernier applaud, yet the same motto does not apply to state or employer-ordered vaccinations!
Rally organizer Mary Lou Gutscher counted 110 participants at the rally.
“CAFE heartily endorses these protests,” said Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFE). “One of a person’s most important rights is choice of medical treatment. Forcing people to get jabbed to keep their job or go to a restaurant or fly a plane is aggression and assault. Big Brother, back off!”
