END THE LOCKDOWN Rallies Spread Throughout British Columbia
I attended the weekly END THE LOCKDOWN rally in Penticton today.. About 40 freedom fighters braved wicked winds at Main & Warren this afternoon. Lots of supportive honks from passing traffic; a few fingers from the frightened and brainwashed. The END THE LOCKDOWN movement is spreading throughout British Columbia, with rallies this weekend in Vancouver, Kelowna Penticton, Vernon, Kamloops and Parksville. — Paul Fromm, Director, CAFE
An Edmonton pastor may have found out the hard way Thursday night about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s new travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trudeau announced Friday morning all returning travellers into the country must go to a government isolation centre where another COVID-19 test will be taken. If a passenger tests negative, they will be allowed to return home for a strictly-enforced another 11 days. Those testing positive will be taken to another government facility for the rest of their 14-day quarantine.
Trudeau said it will cost each traveller about $2,000 for the cost of the test, accommodations and food.
The new rules weren’t even announced yet Thursday night, but it appears officials at YYC were ready.
“(My wife Nikki) arrived in Calgary tonight and when she got there she was greeted by a Police Officer and an AHS official,” wrote Pastor Chris Mathis on his Facebook page.
“They rejected her results and told her she needed to go immediately to an isolation facility. She was told if she resisted she would be arrested. She called me, and I immediately asked to talk with the officer. I talked with both a police officer and the AHS official, they reiterated what she had said to me. I asked for the address of where she would be, they said they could not give me the location address as it was confidential.
“I asked for their names, again they would not give me any information or their names. I pushed, I questioned, I tried to fight but they said they would arrest her if she resisted. They would not give me any information on where they were taking my wife.
“She was not allowed to get her vehicle from the airport, she was immediately put in a white van surrounded by police escorts and taken to an unknown facility that is under full surveillance and has security at every entrance and exit. You can imagine I am barely keeping myself together wondering what in the world has happened in our country in what seems to be overnight.”
Earlier, Trudeau also announced all Canadian airlines had agreed to cancel all the flights to sun and sand destinations until the end of April.
“We all agree that now is just not the time to be flying,” Trudeau said.
“By putting in place these tough measures now, we can look forward to a better time when we can all plan those vacations.”
All international passenger flights, including from the U.S., will land at the Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary and Montreal airports.
Global reported the government will be hiring private security firms to help with quarantine checks on returning travellers.

Remember a year ago, calls for end to flights from Red China were called racist. A simple COVID test & promise to quarantine should suffice. These police state measures have little to do with COVID & a lot to do with destroying Canadian mobility rights. Medico-Stalinist tyranny.
The U.S Post Office is Killing American Free Press
Even the Butterfield Stage Had Guaranteed Delivery
Recently, AFP has received an increasing number of complaints that delivery of our newspaper has gone from taking 4 or 5 days to arrive to sometimes as long as a month until the postman shows up with your AFP. It’s difficult for you to stay on top of the news when the paper is in the mail a month, but we hope that the overwhelmed U.S. Postal Service (USPS) gets back on track as quickly as they are projecting.
The delays, postal representatives insist, are to be blamed on Covid staffing shortages, a reorgan- ization of the processing systems at the USPS to handle packages as opposed to publications and letter mail and, of course, the huge number of mail-in ballots that flooded many post offices in November. Add to this the summer of rioting, USPS spokesmen say, and we have had a perfect storm for delayed delivery. We prefer solutions to excuses, so we will stay on top of the postmaster to make sure delivery of AFP gets back to normal, ASAP. This does bring up a possible solution.
In 1858, the Butterfield Overland Mail Company was formed. The stage traveled from Memphis and St. Louis, mean- dering through the southwest and ending up in San Francisco. The entire route was 2,800 miles and you were guaranteed to have your mail delivered within 25 days or your money back. Back then they didn’t have global pandemics and mail-in voting. They had tornadoes, flash floods, blistering heat, rattlesnakes, bandits, and hostile Apache Indians waiting to waylay the Butterfield stagecoach.
Note that the 25-day delivery time is better service than some of you are receiving from today’s automated USPS! The only problem was, it cost $50 to have your letter delivered from St. Louis to San Francisco. Today that would be $1,587. A bit too pricey for most people, but nice to have if you really needed a parcel delivered on time. Today, the Butterfield Overland Mail Co. is out of business and the U.S. Post Office (and the postal employees’ union) is king.
Of course we know our readers are as upset about this as we are, but we are at the mercy of the USPS. And, it is just not the newspaper that is being delayed. Your book orders have also been delayed. We were told by the Capitol Heights Post Office that they still have some of our orders—yet to be shipped from Dec. 9.
SO, not only is this killing those of you who are waiting patiently for your AFP and your book orders to arrive, the delay has hurt us financially. As we watch our bank account dwindle, we know, somewhere out there, are the hundreds of payments and donations we must have to survive.
Please consider making a donation here to help support AFP if you can.
Shocking! B.C. Chief Medical Officer of Health Bonnie Henry admits that limitations on gatherings: “None of this is based on scientific evidence!!!!!” It’s all about people control! Medico-Stalinist tyranny at work https://www.bitchute.com/video/Oddgw16zBcI4/
, John Tory’s Anti-END THE LOCKDOWN Rally Goon Squad — “It Felt like Tienamen Square, Not Toronto”
This past Saturday, police were out in full force at Yonge-Dundas Square yet again to violently shut downToronto’s weekly anti-lockdown protest.
As one protester succinctly put it, Yonge-Dundas Square was more reminiscent of Tiananmen Square than the bustling downtown plaza we’ve come to know and love.
Unlike the week before, however, protesters weren’t even able to enter the area, as police had it completely cordoned off — forcing the crowd to peacefully assemble across the street where they were picked off, one by one, for exercising their right to protest. There seems to be a whole new litany of things citizens cannot do in the vicinity of Yonge-Dundas Square. These include (and we’re not making this up): Standing alone on the sidewalk Waving a Canadian flag Chanting anti-lockdown rhetoric Painting anti-lockdown messages on one’s minivan
The police also made sure to harass, shove, and bully Rebel News reporters who were there to do what the mainstream media was unwilling to do — cover and report on the rally.
Where was this reaction during the Black Lives Matter protests this summer?If you recall, Toronto police refused to condemn those protests, choosing to capitulate and take a knee instead. I made sure to ask every police officer I talked to about that, but unsurprisingly, they had little to say about the matter.In any event, the protesters remained defiant and continued with their plans to march around the city.
You can watch my entire report right here: More than 100 police officers greeted the protesters who were brave enough to return to Yonge-Dundas Square. And just like at the start of the protest, officers continued with their pugilistic enforcement tactics.
Toronto police have reached a new low and have obliterated whatever public trust still remained. They’re no longer upholding their oath to serve and protect the people, preferring to do the bidding of our political elites instead. What were they trying to accomplish with this disgraceful abuse of power and how much did this farce cost the taxpayers? To what end exactly?
More importantly, what do Mayor Tory’s thugs have in store for us this weekend? We’ll be back this Saturday to find out. Stay tuned. Yours truly, David Menzies
A YEAR AFTER OUR CRIMINAL COMPLAINT TRAVIS PATRON STILL HASN’T BEEN CHARGED
THE LEADER OF THE NEO-NAZI CANADIAN NATIONALIST PARTY IS ESCALATING HIS ATTACKS ON THE JEWISH COMMUNITY
July 16, 2020
Canadian Anti-Hate Network
In June 2019, the Canadian Anti-Hate Network filed a criminal complaint with the RCMP in Saskatchewan for an antisemitic video posted by Travis Patron, leader of the neo-Nazi [false] Canadian Nationalist Party. The RCMP says they launched an investigation. A full year later the RCMP has not made any further statement on the status of that investigation, despite Patron escalating his antisemitic calls to arms. It’s turning into international news.
Given the most recent incidents, CAHN board member Richard Warman filed a renewed criminal complaint with the RCMP and CIJA and the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center followed suit, filing their own complaints.
If you support our work against the neo-Nazi [false] Canadian Nationalist Party, help us out at antihate.ca/donate. Thank you!
The video that prompted our June 2019 complaint deals in antisemitic tropes, calls Jews a “parasitic tribe,” and says they need to be dealt with once and for all; any reasonable person would understand the video as a call for deportations and genocide.
At the time Patron claimed it wasn’t about Jews:
“Unless you self-identify with the accusations in the video, then it doesn’t concern you. But if you choose to be offended by it, ask yourself WHY? Is it wrong for Canada to rid itself of a parasitic relationship that has only served to suck us dry? #Zionism #cdnpoli”
Patron has a social media history of supporting “historical revisionism,” a term Holocaust deniers [false — skeptics] use to self-identity, liking posts quoting Hitler, and promoting the writings of Quebec fascist Adrian Arcand, a Hitler supporter who was arrested and interned during WWII.
Despite his barely veiled neo-Nazism, [false] our promise to name their members should they not renounce their support, and the pending investigation, Patron’s Canadian Nationalist Party was ultimately recognized as a federal political party with all the inherent benefits in time for the 2019 election. Unsurprisingly, Patron and his two candidates received almost no votes.
In November 2019, Patron was charged with aggravated assault and assault causing bodily harm for allegedly attacking two women who wouldn’t get in his car. Those charges are pending.
Since then Patron has made nonsense arguments that he isn’t subject to Canadian law and dispensed with any pretense that he isn’t targeting Canadian Jews. He has posted a video giving a Nazi salute, which he calls a Roman salute, and published a flyer with the transcript of the first antisemitic video, adding:
“The people we speak of are not truly ‘Jews.’ They are liars and deceivers attempting to shield themselves from criticism using a false identity. Let us be aware and expose them for what they are: a tribe of parasites.”
Patron has since made other videos in the same vein, and is also dealing biblical antisemitism, including sharing an infamous bible passage saying Jews are of the “synagogue of Satan.”
CAHN believes the evidence is more than sufficient for the RCMP to criminally charge Patron with the wilful promotion of hatred against the Jewish community who have every right to be protected from Patron and the poison of his hate propaganda.
It’s been over a year since the first criminal complaint. How much longer do we have to wait?
Preston Manning: Lockdown rules are violating our rights. I’m calling on the justice minister to intervene
Author of the article:Preston Manning, Special to National PostPublishing date:Jan 26, 2021 • 20 hours ago • 7 minute read
The following is an edited excerpt from a letter sent by Preston Manning, former leader of the Reform party and former leader of the official Opposition in Parliament, to Justice Minister and Attorney General David Lametti.
The primary purpose of this letter is to request action on the part of yourself and the House of Commons’ standing committee on justice and human rights to achieve a better and more equitable balance between: the protection of the health of Canadians through government measures adopted in response to the COVID-19 crisis and the protection of the rights and freedoms of Canadians as guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
One of the unfortunate and presumably unintended consequences of the health protection measures has been the widespread and prolonged infringement of “fundamental rights” that are guaranteed by the charter:
Regrettably, it must also be emphasized that these violations have been occurring for more than 10 months and in large and ever-increasing numbers throughout the country. Moreover, in addition to these violations of “fundamental freedoms,” other important rights and freedoms guaranteed by the charter are also being infringed, including widespread violations of democratic rights, mobility rights, legal rights, equality rights and the right of every citizen and permanent resident to “pursue the gaining of a livelihood.”
The denial of the right to pursue the gaining of a livelihood, which includes the right to work and operate a business, is particularly devastating, as it affects the social, economic and financial well-being of millions of Canadians.
While health under our Constitution is primarily a provincial responsibility, given the federal role in responding to COVID-19 and in bringing the charter into being, surely it is the federal government that ought to take the lead in balancing our COVID response with the rights and freedoms that are enumerated in the charter.
I acknowledge that Section 1 of the charter does permit governments to impose limits on the rights and freedoms of Canadians, so long as those limits can be “demonstrably justified” as “reasonable” in a free and democratic society. But in order for these measures to be seen as legitimate, the government has an obligation to provide Parliament, and the public, with evidence that it has done its due diligence and taken into account all the scientific evidence, including the views of those who disagree with the government’s assumptions.
For example, if the governmental response includes continued lockdowns, a demonstrable and reasonable justification would require the government to present a clearly written plan. Such a plan should:
show exactly why such extraordinary measures are required;
identify the nature and magnitude of the anticipated impacts of such measures;
propose concrete measures for mitigating the known collateral damage that such lockdowns produce; and
specify when these supposedly “temporary” measures will end, and on what basis (to say that lockdown measures will be lifted when the number of “cases” is “low enough” is not a satisfactory criterion and only generates massive uncertainty among workers, employers and investors).
The charter provides for the protection of the rights and freedoms of Canadians by declaring that: “Anyone whose rights or freedoms, as guaranteed by this charter, have been infringed or denied may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction to obtain such remedy as the court considers appropriate and just in the circumstances.” The Constitution also empowers courts to declare that “any law that is inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution is to the extent of the inconsistency, of no force or effect.”
However, I would suggest that these provisions are insufficient under the circumstances, given that the process of applying to the courts for relief is unfamiliar to, and beyond the means of, most Canadians. Since not all Canadians have the resources or the expertise to avail themselves of this right of appeal to the courts, inequality of access becomes a further limitation on the ability of Canadians to exercise this right.
Furthermore, if all the Canadians whose rights have been infringed over the last year were to apply to the courts for redress, it would overwhelm the court system. Even in the event of such a flood of applications, the courts are likely to view the health protection issue, particularly in an emergency, to be a policy matter to be dealt with by Parliament, not the judiciary.
As a lifelong democrat and a former parliamentarian, I completely agree that the balancing of conflicting rights is first and foremost the responsibility of the duly elected Parliament, with appeals to the courts being a measure of last resort. After all, Canada’s current Constitution was drafted and made law by elected representatives of the people, not appointed judges, so it is elected officials and those reporting to them (civil servants) who have the primary responsibility for protecting the rights and freedoms it guarantees and balancing that protection with other demands.
This leads me to a third request, namely that you and your parliamentary colleagues implement other measures that could be undertaken by Parliament, cabinet and the civil service to correct the current imbalance between the necessary protection of the health of Canadians and the equally necessary protection of their constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms.
These additional measures are required because what might have been confined to a health crisis has unfortunately been turned into a social crisis, an economic crisis, a pending financial crisis and a crisis for children, university and college students, and high-performance athletes — three cohorts of Canadians who are least vulnerable to the coronavirus and who ought to have been the least affected by efforts to limit its spread.

Allow me to suggest five such measures:
Public recognition by the prime minister and the government that the COVID-19 crisis has become a multi-dimensional public emergency that requires the government to broaden its management beyond the health department and the advice of the medical community to include a broader range of scientific expertise and the meaningful involvement of other federal agencies with experience and expertise in managing public emergencies.
The convening of special sessions of Parliament, until the COVID crisis has passed, in which each member will be given an opportunity to give a short report on the health situation in his or her constituency, the positive and negative impacts of the health-protection measures adopted and suggestions for securing a more balanced and effective response.
Ordering the Department of Justice to conduct comprehensive assessments of the impacts of health-protection measures on the rights and freedoms of Canadians; to openly and transparently present the results of such assessments to Parliament; to put forward proposals for balancing health protections with the protection of rights and freedoms; and to adopt and implement those balancing measures that receive majority support in Parliament.
Action by the ministers of finance, economic development and natural resources to introduce legislation requiring economic impact assessments to be performed on every major health and environmental protection measure proposed or adopted by the federal government.
The employment of due diligence in the development and implementation of these and whatever further measures are required to effectively balance the protection of the health of Canadians with the protection of their rights and freedoms.
Let me make crystal clear that I fully recognize that the coronavirus is a serious threat to the health and well-being of Canadians that requires substantive governmental action. I myself, due to age and a family predisposition to lung-related illnesses, am personally in a very vulnerable group.
But in the interests of all Canadians, I respectfully ask for your active support in achieving an equitable balance between the protection of the health of Canadians and the protection of their fundamental rights and freedoms under the Constitution, and an equitable balance between the physical well-being of Canadians and their social, economic and financial well-being.
Winter Soldiers — Report on the Breathe Freely Gathering in Victoria, January 23, 2021
To : those who care about good government in British Columbia
GATHERING Jan 23 2021 in Victoria B C
A few hardy souls gathered on the doorstep of the Ministry of Health on a bright wintry afternoon, Jan 23 2021. 20 warm bodies holding signs educating passersby with more and better information than they’re getting from the govt. Reactions were 50 50 thumbs up approving honks, versus hollering disapproval. What came through from the screamers is : deep animosity. There’s a whole lot of pent up hurt and confusion barely kept in check by head Witch Bonnie Henry casting her spell every day chanting “ cases cases cases death death death”
As Professor Marshal McLuhan taught me : “When someone feels his self image is challenged, he has a mandate for war.”
Encountering signage urging “take off the mask” a guy wearing the muzzle can have a minor psychotic break. Our tiny witness contradicting the official brainwashing causes him to lash out at us for startling him out of stupor. Normal politeness comes unglued … they scream out their confusion = “go to hell”.
From half a year’s involvement in this authentic populist movement I know that part of my calling, is, channeling that raw emotion on to who’s responsible — the fools in high places perpetrating this Crime against Humanity ie. the Covid 19 HOAX; namely, John Horgan and his supporting cast of NeeDiPpers.
Our little rallies are crucial for connecting like-minded folks in what we used to call the real world. A good example being last week, when the car rally was forming at Dallas Road, a man came up and told the protesters that he had no idea there were people like him = disgusted with the official version of KronaMadness. The warMth of a simple hug means a lot in these trying times
After standing with the protest for a while on Blanshard St., I headed out to the Breathe Freely EVENT which I had organized. There, I did most of the talking as six of us stood around in LESS THAN so-called Social distance, encouraging each other. I got a kick out of handing out pages proving a “support group” is one of the categorical exemptions from the Public Health Act Order banning GATHERING and EVENTS. Another exemption being, “political activity”. I had a hard copy in hand so if an officious bye=law enforcement officer were to start in on me, she could be put in her place. You’re damn’d right we’re a support group!
One of the attendees was a man who had been given a violation Notice for failing to wear a mask in a public place. The very next day after diktat M425 came in to effect – November 26 2020 – he’d gone in to a food store, done his shopping silently, all the while the employees were literally ‘in his face’ bothering him because he wasn’t muzzled. When the police arrived he was laying on the floor, without a word. They handcuffed him and put him in the cop car, ostensibly under arrest for “obstruction of Justice”. But the cops spent the next half hour discussing what to charge him with. Eventually, he was handed a ticket pursuant to the Covid19 Measures Regulation Act. When I get an image of that Violation Notice, I’ll be sending it out : Publicity is the soul of Justice.
The tragedy in which we now find ourselves could not have happened without despicable complicity by the so-called “legacy media”. In nearly a year, not once have I seen a line of print in the local rags / pathetic excuses for newspapers, contradicting the premise of medical fascism with a smiley-face
Last summer the very character of our province changed without a murmur nor the rustling of a wing feather by those who style themselves the guardians of propriety. Statutes were sneaked through the castrated Legislature. The Emergency Powers Act and the Covid 19 Measures Regulations Act and the Public Health Act were amended so that merely talking back to someone in authority re the HOAX of the purported pan-demic, is now an offence. Really ominious, is, official protocol for having someone tossed in a mental ward for voicing disbelief with the Central Party Line. The tentacles of Red Fascism wrapped around British Columbia while citizens slept. The court jesters, scribblers and quislings such as David Obee, Les Layne, Vaughn Palmer, Michael Smith, Keith Baldrey etc. are missing in action. Worse, though ! where are the guys who pretend to be Christian leaders? Commanded by God to be Watchmen on the Wall? With rare exception … a bunch of chickenshits whom Jesus Christ said he will spue out of his mouth because they were lukewarm when it mattered. This coming Friday, I’ll be in the Vancouver Lawcourts viewing the Affidavits of a couple of pastors – men with the courage of their convictions – who have a Judicial Review underway, challenging the lockdown measures pertaining to believers congregating
At the Breathe Freely GATHERING one of the attendees told me what happened in Duncan, just lately. His friend called her doctor, requesting a note to substantiate medical exemption from having to wear a face covering. Without so much as consulting her, the doctor made an appointment for the patient to go in for an interview with the mental health branch. The book “Psychopolitics” by one of the monsters of Stalinism, Lev Beria, describes how the psychiatric profession was captured by the communists, so dissenters were labelled “insane” then parked in mental wards. This is how it was done in the Soviet Union and is done in Red China and British Columbia, this afternoon.
I’ll be convening another meetup of Breathe Freely, soon. Please share this little missive to let all and sundry know RESISTANCE IS NOT FUTILE
