Court date cancelled for so-called Truth and Reconciliation Day

Court date cancelled for so-called Truth and Reconciliation Day

Dear Friends,

I just learned that my court date (October 2, 2023) for my never ending “hate crime” case has been rescheduled to October 16, 2023, which happens to be my 56th birthday. 🙂

The reason for this rescheduling is apparently the Ontario Superior Court needs the paid day off to “reflect on the tragic legacy of the residential school system and the
ways it continues to affect Indigenous Peoples in Canada. It is a day to mourn the
children who did not return from residential school and to honour the survivors,
their families, and the resilience of their communities.”
. .

So-called Truth and Reconciliation day actually falls on Saturday, September 30th, so it is unclear to me why the judges, prosecutors, court clerks, etc …. can’t reflect on Saturday on their own time, rather than Monday on the taxpayer’s time, especially when one considers their constant complaining about the court’s dreadful backlog, which is actually a serious problem.

Here is an article from two months ago on thousands of serious driving offenses being withdrawn in Toronto and across Ontario, because they can’t make it to trial in a timely manner.

More careless driving charges dropped in Ontario as courts grapple with pandemic backlogs:

It is worth noting the poor taxpayers of Ontario who work in the private sector and who are paying for these well paid civil servants to go and “reflect” about all these alleged residential school victims (or in Prime Minister Blackface’s case most likely surfing and substance abusing in Tofino), will not be getting a paid day off on October 2nd. They will be working. Advertisements Report this ad

Anyways, I was blessed to have a so-called residential school survivor named Nelson Boyer as a friend and fellow activist when I was picketing the Regina General Hospital 20 years ago. Nelson was sort of hated by his Metis settlement even back 20 years ago as he refused to be a part of the class action suit that the Tony Merchant lawfirm was initiating back then.

Nelson was Metis and was quite adament that his stay at a Catholic residential school was the reason he had a successful marriage of 50 years, a fulfilling career as a Catholic School teacher, and indeed he attributed his strong Catholic faith to his stay in the residential school. As for abuse? Beyond mild corporal punishment for serious rule breaking, Nelson didn’t see any abuse. Back 60 years ago when Nelson was a student in the Catholic residential school, corporal punishment was also common in Canada’s public schools and was not considered abuse.

Nelson by being honest and saying out loud that he was not abused and that he did not perceive himself as a victim of genocide pissed off some people in his Metis community. The Canadian government and courts were making sure there was big money to be had by claiming residential school victimhood. The narrative in the media and education establishments deliberately implicated white Christians who worked in the residential school system as the victimizers.

While no system created by humans is perfect and for certain a system like the residential school system which lasted for over a century and employed thousands of people would have attracted a few abusers, the narrative promoted by our public schools, mainstream media and indeed the Ontario Superior Court is misleading and unlike my flyer that I am charged with with a hate crime for distributing at a homosexual pride parade, I would say intentionally misleading.

The media and courts are deliberately giving an impression that native children were abducted, abused, murdered, and left in unmarked mass graves:

In Kamloops so far no mass grave has been found, though you would never know that listening to the CBC or learning at your local public school. I believe there are unmarked graves all over Canada from the residential school era. Life was harsh in the Canada of more than a century ago. Many people, native and otherwise, were poor who lived on Canada’s frontiers; the social safety nets, health care and nutrition that we take for granted today was not available back then. People died and wound up in graves with no tombstones. The little wooden crosses that a Priest or nun would put on a child’s grave more than a century ago would definitely be an unmarked grave today.

One teacher who would actually qualify as a PhD level history expert was fired by the Abbotsford School Board when he gently corrected the misconceptions of one of his students who claimed Catholic nuns, Priests and teachers were murdering native children in the residential schools. In actual fact the teacher informed his student, native and non native children died from ailments such as tuberculosis, pneumonia and influenza in the nineteenth and early twentieth century in Canada.

Many residential schools were virtually on the frontier with no doctors and no amenities that we take for granted today like hydro or running water. The fact is most of the Priests, nuns and other carers did the best they could caring for native children with the limited resources they had. The federal government at the time gave the schools a small budget to operate on and given the residential schools were dormitory style residences, respiratory infections spread easily and stuff that is easily treatable today was often fatal a hundred years ago.

The residential school narrative kind of reminds me of the narrative the Ontario Appeals Court and LGBT lobby is trying to spin at my trial. The narrative is my flyer is “hate” and homosexuals were harmed and put at risk by the words and images contained in my flyer.

To see the flyer and to decide for yourself if this flyer is criminal hate speech go here:

It doesn’t matter that the Crown’s own infectious disease expert, Dr. Mona Loutfy, was found to be more misleading in her testimony about my flyer than the claims I made in the flyer its self. Dr. Loutfy took it upon herself to lie under oath in an effort to get me convicted of a hate crime, rather than just give unbiased evidence about the statistics and images in my flyer and let the unbiased evidence inform the courts about the accuracy of my claims of health risks related to homosexual conduct.

It doesn’t matter that the original trial judge, Robert Goldstein looked for a month and couldn’t find criminal hate speech in my flyer. It doesn’t matter that Justice Goldstein in his judgment acquitting me noted there were no calls to violence and that my flyer lacks what the Supreme Court calls the “hallmarks of hatred,” ie calls for banishment or genocide, comparing targeted group to vermin or excrement, etc……

What matters is that public disapproval of homosexual behaviour and especially inconvenient facts about higher than average rates of STIs, domestic violence, promiscuity and other maladies be silenced. The Toronto courts and Ontario Attorney General’s Office under fake conservative Doug Ford have allowed themselves to be driven by an ideological agenda that seems to be devoid of any desire to arrive at the truth about wether or not my flyer is a hate crime. The Ontario Prosecutor and Appeal Courts seem driven to acheive a conviction in my case rather than simply let the facts decide my guilt or innocence. Advertisements Report this ad

To see the Toronto Star article on the Ontario Court of Appeal ordering that I stand trial again go here:

It seems to me as Canada’s leaders (politicians, judges, business elites, etc….) stray farther from the God who created them and as they turn their backs on the God who our country once acknowledged and honoured, the more they reject and even despise what is true.

Although they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools.” Romans 1:21, 22

The fact that my flyer (written by a 20 year out of practice nurse) was found to be more truthful than a currently practicing Medical Doctor who was also an infectious disease expert and who was retained by the Prosecutor to scrutinize my flyer but discredited herself by being an advocate for the side that wants to put me in jail doesn’t matter. In theory truth should be a defense in criminal hate speech cases. In my case the truth of my flyer is being ignored and they want to bring in a homosexual “expert” for the next trial to explain how my flyer is all about hateful tropes and negative generalizations designed to create an environment where hatred and discrimination can flourish. In my view the Crown Prosecutor has no interest in knowing what my actual (not hard to determine) motivations for distributing the flyer in the Toronto homosexual pride parade are.

Michael Higgins treatment for teaching honest history rather than distorted leftist race baiting in not dissimilar. History, reasearch, and truth its self was on Mr. Higgin’s side, but he was fired from his job as a history teacher anyways. The people in power over Mr. Higgins career preferred the leftist narrative and untruths about Canada’s residential schools legacy over historical accuracy and an honest examination of Christian run residential schools. Advertisements Report this ad

Interestingly those on the far left who wish to criminalize my speech are working to criminalize Michael Higgins speech as well. Radical native, pro-abortion, and self described pro-trans activist NDP Member of Parliament Leah Gazan wants to amend Section 319 (the section I am charged under) of the Criminal Code to add “residential school denialism” to the code and make it a so-called hate crime. Quite disturbingly Trudeau’s Justice Minister David Lametti has indicated he is open to adding “residential school denialism” to Canada’s criminal code. This means historians like Michael Higgins who push back against a politically correct but unbalanced narrative, might not only find themselves out of a job, but also becoming the cell partner of Bill Whatcott who also pushed back against a damaging agenda bolstered and propagated by numerous untrue but seemingly unassailable assumptions.

As the left seizes control of the courts and legislatures of our land the narrative has become more important than the truth. And sadly the time honoured principle of the truth being a defense is ceasing to be something that those who are being prosecuted for speaking the inconvenient truth can count on for their exoneration. For a judicial or political system to be credible, it must desire truth and enshrine truth as a defense. Increasingly, Canada’s political and legal systems are lacking credibility.

 “So Pilate entered his headquarters again and called Jesus and said to him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus answered, “Do you say this of your own accord, or did others say it to you about me?” Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you over to me. What have you done?” Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” John 18:

Remembering A Free Speech Martyr & Christian Author, Malcolm Ross

Remembering A Free Speech Martyr & Christian Author, Malcolm Ross

A friend gave me his treasure trove of tapes and book and pamphlets among which are many recordings of CAFE meetings

I listen to a tape in short segments. 
I am most of the way through the talk given by Malcolm Ross June 25th 1998 “My 10 Year Battle for Vindication.”
I’m pretty sure I bought Ross’ book from you at some point. [The book is Cross-Examination: Christianity on Trial –– BY Malcolm Ross fired for his religious writings on abortion and other issues appealed to Canada’s Supreme Court in 1990. This rare book is available for $25.00 plus $10 postage from C-FAR Books, P.O. Box 332, Rexdale, ON., M9W 5L3, CANADA.]

I will be turning the tape-recording in to a transcript. His explanation of the implications of the ruling of the Supremes is shocking a quarter of a century later — astonishing not a scintilla of genuine “evidence” that any real person felt they were in a “poisoned environment” in his classroom. Yet, the Supremes figured out that it was only reasonable to draw the inference  of such !!

This, I fear, is what’s going to happen to Bill Whatcott, if he goes through the meatgrinder again. The Bible itself becomes ‘hate literature’ if published anywhere outside some little ‘safe space’ of a building properly registered with the gov’t as a ‘charity’ for purposes of income tax receipts

Ross cites a book to do with the doctrines of modern Juda-ism in which the “Holocaust” is understood to be an essential part of that religion.

There isn’t one person in a million who grasps that. I sure didn’t

What that means for Canada, is,    after the recent amendment to section 319 of the Criminal Code, a person can be prosecuted for ‘blasphemy’ against the state-sanctioned religion,  if some one of the Jud-aic persuasion, feels his or her dignity has been impugned by his questioning the Hollywood version of World War II.

Lawyer John Rosen Convinces Political Prisoner Bill Whatcott to Appeal to Supreme Court of Canada

Lawyer John Rosen Convinces Political Prisoner Bill Whatcott to Appeal to Supreme Court of Canada

The old Supreme Court of Hungary located dowtown Budapest, close to the Danube River

Dear Friends,

After a discussion with my lawyer John Rosen, I have reluctantly decided to return to Canada to appeal my latest Ontario Court of Appeal decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Prime Minister Blackface (Left) and Justice Lorne Sossin he/him (Right) believe in gender ideology and despise freedom of speech.

To see Lorne Sossin’s he/his corrupt decision that will likely get him an appointment to the Supreme Court of Canada by Prime Minister Blackface himself go here: Advertisement

I was adament that appealing to the Supreme Court of Canada was a waste of time and that appealing to the Hungarian government for asylum as a persecuted Christian made sense, given my personal circumstances. (Prosecutor wants 18 months incarceration for a flyer that doesn’t likely violate any law in Hungary and definitely didn’t violate any law in Canada a few years ago.)

To see the flyer Justice Sossin he/him and his two fellow Trudeau appointees think might be hate speech of a sort that harms vulnerable homosexuals marching in the Toronto shame parade with silhouettes of Christ on their crotches by causing “emotional distress,” or that might have caused some Joe Sixpack to have feelings of “detestation, and villification” towards the pink speedo brigade after reading it go here:

Anyways, Mr. Rosen and his assistant lawyer, a young lady by the name of Mindy I think, countered that they can see “significant errors” in the judgment and that I really should appeal it. Looking at the flyer from the the point of view of common sense, according to how I see the world, I agree there are “significant errors” in the ruling. I actually see how a homosexual activist like Nick Mule’ could prejudice a judge or jury to find me guilty of so-called “hate speech,” but I don’t see how Mr. Mule’ can help a judge or jury come to an honest decision regarding my flyer’s legality.

Mr. Mule when under cross examination demonstrated that he could pick apart my sentences and photographs, deny what they actually communicate, and read all kinds of nasty motives into my literary work. The problem with this is Nick Mule’ is not me, and he cannot get into my head to read my motives. His idea that my flyer contains “tropes” to spread “hatred” is not true.

Even under intense scrutiny from the LGBT activist infectious disease specialist Mona Loutfy who discredited herself by being less than honest under cross examination, and who tried to mislead the court in her personal crusade to have me convicted of a “hate crime; it was found most of my flyer was substantially true (prevalence of hepatitis amongst homosexuals, prevalence of HPV of the rectum, etc….) and the parts that came up less than 100% accurate were only dated, (more homosexuals died of AIDS at an earlier age when I was a nurse than today thanks to modern anti-retrovirals that were not available when I was practicing); no evidence came out that I was lying (unlike the Crown’s infectious disease specialist).

Sadly, Mr. Mule’ and it seems the Ontario Appeal Court that ruled we need to hear from him, has no interest in the truth of my flyer. The truth won’t likely matter so much as the impugned motivations of alleged hatred and ill will that I am alleged to have, this will be discussed as the driver of my flyer.

To see the flyer that is heading to the Supreme Court of Canada go here:

However, Mr Rosen and Mindy weren’t looking at the appeal from the angle of Bill Whatcott’s common sense. They see significant legal and technical errors in the Ontario Court of Appeal judgment and they believe there is a good chance the Supreme Court will feel compelled to address these errors.

My initial thoughts, while listening to Mr. Rosen was, I didn’t actually care if there are appealable errors. The Supreme Court is very expensive and 100% of pro-family lawyers thought I was winning the 2013 Whatcott decision and they were wrong. Being out of Canada has it’s down moments. I don’t know Hungarian and I don’t quite know what to do here. If I elected to stay in Hungary and ask for asylum, there is no guarantee the Hungarian government will accept my claim and for months I would be compelled to reside in a somewhat spartan, semi secure, refugee centre. But the streets of Hungary are clean, you see no drug addicts, garbage, needles, etc… littering the capital city’s streets.

The streets of Hungary are safe everywhere, people seem more honest, and crime is much lower than in Canada. No Hungarian kids and almost no adults are identifying as homosexual, gender confused, bisexual or furry. Cancel culture doesn’t appear to be a thing here. You won’t lose your job for saying Bruce Jenner is a man. People here are normal and the past three weeks has convinced me the Canadian government, academia, justice system and media are actually really spiritually sick and corrupt.

Our media and government has a religious devotion to so-called harm reduction, critical race theory, gender ideology, climate alarmism, etc…. Our broken justice system likes to pontificate a false and harmful narrative that non-white criminals are chronic victims of systemic racism and therefore somehow merit ridiculously light sentences that fail victims and law abiding taxpayers. The false “harm reduction” narrative is an absolute disaster for Canadians. Overdoses have never been been more common, whole cities are being turned to garbage as junkies and discarded needles litter the streets, emergency wards are swamped with opiate and meth overdoses and normal patients suffer. Hungary and Singapore are testimonies that safe, clean streets, and normal people is possible. I have not seen a single drug addict shooting up on a sidewalk or dude in a dress demanding that I should call him a woman in either Budapest or Szeged.

Anyways, I thought God wanted me in Hungary and I prayed for His guidance in regards to this matter and when the negative decision came down from the Ontario Court of Appeal, I really thought God arranged for me to be in Hungary and that I am meant to live out the rest of my life here. But now I am confronted with new information. So, I prayed again, maybe God does want me to fight another round in our courts, though I have no confidence in their neutrality or sense of fairness when it comes to socially conservative Christians.

I talked to one of my long time friends and supporters in Vancouver. She appreciates John Rosen’s work on my case and offered to donate some money to the Supreme Court appeal, if I decided to come back and appeal the Ontario Court of Appeal decision. Mr. Rosen agreed to launch the appeal for $10,000 with an understanding there is no guarantee I can raise anything close to what an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada costs in the future. There really is no church, lobby group, legal group, etc… backing my court battle.

Most “respectable” Conservatives prefer to fight safer battles, such as gun control, Blackface’s insane spending habits, vaccine mandates, etc….. Those fights are all worthwhile, but Romans 1 and Leviticus 20 is clear God is opposed to homosexual perversion. It really is not about two consenting adults in the privacy of their bedroom. The harm this sexual agenda has caused to children, our healthcare system, our education system and indeed to our civil liberties; not to mention truth its self, is tangible and severe. This Ontario Court of Appeal decision that I must go on trial again is clear evidence that speaking truthfully and in good faith about the LGBT agenda is fraught with serious and life altering risks. Truth is no longer a solid defense in Canada when it comes to so-called hate crime cases.

I am a controversial and less than perfect Prophet that has been given this calling. It really seems only God and a handful of loyal friends has walked with me through this long seven year trial. It also seems clear God has persevered me this far, but I have no answer how, and it often seems precarious, though He is faithful.

O God, you know my folly;
    the wrongs I have done are not hidden from you. Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me,
    O Lord God of hosts;
let not those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me,
    O God of Israel.
For it is for your sake that I have borne reproach,
    that dishonor has covered my face.
I have become a stranger to my brothers,
    an alien to my mother’s sons. For zeal for your house has consumed me,
    and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
When I wept and humbled my soul with fasting,
    it became my reproach.
When I made sackcloth my clothing,
    I became a byword to them.
I am the talk of those who sit in the gate,
    and the drunkards make songs about me. But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord.
    At an acceptable time, O God,
    in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.”
Psalm 69:5-13

I will be back in Canada soon and if God so desires and enables it, we will see what happens when this case reaches the Supreme Court of Canada.

In Christ’s Service, Bill Whatcott

The Vengeful Grinding of the Ontario “Justice” System: Ontario Court of Appeal orders Bill Whatcott to go on trial again for Gospel flyer delivered at Toronto Homosexual Parade 7 years ago

Naked Sodomite is delighted as he receives one of Bill Whatcott’s “Zombie Safe Sex Packages” from a courageous Christian Truth Activist who had to disguise herself as a “Gay Zombie Cannabis Consumer” to march in the 2016 Toronto Homosexual Pride Parade and deliver this much needed Gospel and accurate health information to this poor lost soul.

To read the unanimous three judge decision from the Ontario Court of Appeal written by the Justice who doesn’t assume you know he is a male and wants to help you out by letting you know he is Lorne Sossin he/him go here:

Justice Lorne Sossin he/him reasoned I needed to be retried because Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Goldstein didn’t properly consider the “expert” contributions queer liberationist Professor Nick Mule could make in determining whether or not my Gospel flyer is “hate speech.” From R vs Whatcott:

[43]       Professor Mulé testified about how the identifiable group would perceive the flyer. Professor Mulé explained how the tropes of anti-gay discrimination, present in the flyer, impact the community. The perspective of the target community is not only relevant per se in an analysis of hate speech, but it is critically important to an assessment of whether the challenged speech causes “emotional distress” to the members of that community: see Ward v. Quebec (Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse), 2021 SCC 43, 463 D.L.R. (4th) 567, at paras. 62, 75, 83-84. The perspective of the gay male community as it relates to the tropes present in the flyer might strengthen (or diminish) the hatefulness of Mr. Whatcott’s communication.

[44]       Emotional distress caused to individual members of the group is one of the pressing harms that anti-hate speech laws aim to address. The second, identified in KeegstraTaylor, and Whatcott (SCC) is the social impact of hateful speech against a targeted group. “If a group of people can be considered inferior, subhuman, or lawless, it is easier to justify denying the group and its members equal rights or status”: Whatcott (SCC), at para. 74. Professor Mulé’s evidence aimed to help the trier of fact situate Mr. Whatcott’s communication via the flyer in its social and historical context.

[45]       In sum, the trial judge failed to address whether situating the flyer in its social and historical context was necessary for the trier of fact to determine whether the text, images, and the flyer as a whole, relied on stereotypes and tropes about gay men that expose them to feelings of detestation and vilification in the eyes of the reasonable member of society.

If you want to know more about “expert” Nick Mule’ and his valuable “academic” contributions on important subjects, such as kink, BDSM, doing sodomy while high on meth, the importance of legalizing the doing of sodomy in public parks, and queering social work, go here:

No doubt Lorne Sossin he/him is on to something when he wants the next trial judge to consider the “expert” wisdom of Nick Mule’ in figuring out whether my flyer is “hate speech” for which the Ontario Attorney General is on record for putting out a Canada Wide Arrest Warrant and is seeking 18 months incarceration.

By the way what does this flyer say that is so complicated and serious that it needs Nick Mule’s wisdom; one acquittal, and more than seven years after the fact, to help a judge determine whether or not my flyer is criminal “hate speech?”

To see the flyer for yourself go here:

Interestingly, a Russian group by the name of “Foundation for the Fight against Repressions” inquired about my court battles and persecutions. I looked into them a little and discovered their founder is Yevgeny Prigozhin, the owner of Wagner mercenary group. Anyways, I gave them an interview and they wrote an article with what might be quite a few spelling errors (English is not their first language), or maybe the spelling and grammatical errors are from Google translate, as I had to translate this article from Cryllic to English. There are also some factual errors regarding my numerous cases over the years, but the gist of my journey and the consequences of speaking out against abortion and homosexuality in Canada is clear enough in this Russian article.

For a prayer item, and just so you know, I am currently in eastern Europe and seeking political/religious asylum. While I had and continue to have a lot of confidence in my lawyer John Rosen; I have no confidence in Canada’s legal system, especially our Supreme Court of Canada which would be my next step. And at age 55, I don’t really feel like sitting in an Ontario Correctional Centre for the next 18 months and then starting over when I get out with a so-called “hate crime” conviction on my criminal record. Twenty years ago, this flyer would never have resulted in a hate crime investigation in Canada, never mind a charge for an indictable offence that would lead to a Canada wide arrest warrant and an unfavourable ruling from an appeals court. No police force would have laid such a charge, and no Attorney General would have issued an arrest warrant, as freedom of speech was actually a thing in Canada. Now the state of freedom of speech and religious freedom in Canada is such, that a conviction is highly likely and the conviction will likely be upheld in the higher courts.

My name Whatcott is already cited in a dreadful Supreme Court of Canada ruling which was unequivocal that truth was not a defense against prosecutions conducted by Human Rights Tribunals, see Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission vs Whatcott.

Since the dreadul Whatcott decision in 2013, the two Trudeau appointees to the Supreme Court have insured the court will be even less sympathetic to Christian speech on moral issues in the public square. I don’t believe I would be doing Canadian Christians and others who value freedom any favour by taking this flyer to the Supreme Court of Canada and setting an even worse precedent, in the area of criminal law no less.

In Christ’s Service, Bill Whatcott

But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 1 Peter 3:14,15

Dear Friends,

Rod Taylor and I just did an interview together and I am quite happy with it. We discuss King vs Whatcott as it pertains to freedom for Christians to speak to the moral and political issues of the day. We also talk about how I became an activist for the cause of Christ and my life as a criminal before coming to Christ. We also talk about how the Canadian judicial system responded when I was an actual criminal, hijacking buses, committing robberies, etc…. and how it responds today to non-violent speech and “thought crimes.”

Update on Rob Hoogland: Praise the Lord! Canada Post walked back from terminating their reliable 20 year plus employee over a Facebook Post he made on the company page criticizing their promotion of homosexuality and transvestite pride.

Seeing as Mr. Hoogland is returning to his job Tuesday, I closed the fundraiser I made for him and sent the money I raised ($100) to help him a little bit with groceries for the couple weeks he spent suspended without pay. One other friend notified me he sent some cash directly to Rob to also help him out. Kudos to that friend for being kind enough to help a man of no social stature, for no other reason than to be an unconditional blessing to a guy in need. It is sad that there is fear in Canada of incurring punishment or job loss for helping Christian/conservative causes and individuals.

I pray this video edifies you and thank you those who chipped in a little to help Rob out and those who prayed for him during his time of need.

Dear Friends,

The Toronto Court of Appeal will be hearing the Ontario Attorney General’s appeal this coming week, (Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at 10:00 am, EDT) against my aquittal for their specious hate crime charge levied against me for covertly sharing the Gospel at the Toronto Homosexual Shame Parade in 2016.

Here is a 2016 Lifesite news article on our Gospel ministry to the homosexual parade:

Shortly after Lifesite wrote the above news article the homosexual activist lawyers who launched a $104 million class action lawsuit against me for my ministry to the Toronto Shame Parade threatened Lifesite with being included in the lawsuit if they did not remove the above story. To Lifesite’s credit they never removed the original story, but rather wrote this one here:

Anyways, due to cost and logistics of travelling across Canada, the Ontario Court of Appeal is offering zoom to myself and anyone else who wishes to attend my hearing virtually.

The link you can use this coming week (Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at 10:00 am, EDT) is:

Pass Code: 322347

Unless permission is given by the court, it is an offence under s. 136 of the Courts of Justice Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.43, punishable by a fine of not more than $25,000 or imprisonment of up to six months, or both, to record any part of the hearing, including by way of screenshot/capture and photograph, as well as to publish, broadcast, reproduce or disseminate any such recording.

It is recommended to log in early to make sure any bugs are resolved. if you have an issue you can call:

For those who wish, you can support my lawyer’s important, competent, and much appreciated work here:

Please pray for God to vindicate us at the court of appeal and that a clear and unambiguous ruling is made that Gospel truth speech can never be defined by the authorities or homosexual activists as so-called “hate speech.”

Free Unrestricted Speech is the Servant of Truth

Pelagius was a Celtic monk who lived in the late fourth and early fifth centuries.   Although he was born somewhere in the British Isles, he lived most of his life in Rome until the city was sacked by the Visigoths.  Following the Fall of Rome he fled to Carthage and spent the remainder of his life in the region of North Africa and Palestine.  This was hardly a quiet retirement for it was in this period that the preaching of his disciple Caelestius brought him increasingly under the scrutiny of St. Augustine of Hippo and St. Jerome and led to his teachings being condemned by multiple regional synods, his excommunication by Innocent I of Rome in 417 AD, and finally, the following year which was the year of his death, the most sweeping condemnation of his teachings as heresy at the Council of Carthage, the rulings of which would later be ratified by the third Ecumenical Council at Ephesus in 431 AD making the condemnation of Pelagius and Pelagianism the verdict of the whole Church in the days before her ancient fellowship was broken.

What did Pelagius teach that was so vehemently rejected by the early, undivided, Church?

Pelagianism was the idea that after the Fall man retained the ability to please God and attain salvation through his own efforts and by his own choices unassisted by the Grace of God.   Expressed as a negation of Christian truth it was a denial of Original Sin and of the absolute necessity of God’s Grace.

Over a millennium later the Protestant Reformers, strongly influenced by the teachings of St. Augustine, would read their own conflict with the Patriarch of Rome through the lens of the earlier Pelagian controversy although the Pelagian controversy had to do with the absolute necessity of God’s Grace whereas the controversy in the Reformation had to do with the sufficiency of God’s Grace.   This led to further distortions of historical understanding of the earlier controversy so that in certain theological circles, particularly those who identify so strongly as Calvinists that in their hierarchy of doctrine they place the canons of the Synod of Dort in the top tier, make those matters on which all the Reformers agreed – the supreme authority of Scripture and the sufficiency of the freely given Grace of God in Christ for salvation – secondary, and assign the truths of the ancient Creeds to a tertiary position, any positive statements concerning Free Will are looked upon as either Pelagian or a step down the slippery slope to Pelagianism.

Free Will, however, is not some aberration invented by Pelagius, but a truth held by all the ancient orthodox Churches alongside Original Sin.   Neither is confessed in the Creed, because neither is Creed appropriate, but both are part of the body of the supplementary truths that help us to understand Gospel truth, the truth confessed in the Creed.   Free Will and Original Sin are complementary truths.   Apart from Free Will, the only explanation for Adam’s having committed the sin that brought sin and death upon his descendants, is some version of supralapsarianism, the repugnant and blasphemous hyper-Calvinist doctrine of Theodore Beza that teaches that God decreed the Fall of Man to occur in order that He might have grounds to punish people He had already decided to damn.

Why did God give man Free Will if He knew man would abuse it and fall into sin?

If God had not given man Free Will, man would not be a moral creature made in God’s own image, but would rather be like a rock or a tree.  Man without Free Will would have the same capacity for Good that a rock and a tree have.   Rocks and trees perform their Good – the reason for which they exist – not because they choose to do so, but because they have no choice.   This is a lower order of Good than the Good which moral beings do because they choose to do it.   God created man as a higher being with a higher order of Good and so He gave man Free Will because man could not fulfil this higher Good without Free Will.   Without the possibility of sin, there was no possibility of man fulfilling the Good for which he was created.

Original Sin impaired man’s Free Will and in doing so placed a major roadblock in the way of man’s fulfilment of the Good for which he was created.   When Adam sinned he bound himself and all his posterity in slavery to sin.   The ancient sages, such as Plato, urged man to employ his will in subjecting his passions to the rule of his reason or intellect.   They understood that the worst slavery a man could endure is not that which is imposed from the outside by laws, customs, or traditions but that which is imposed from the inside when a man is ruled by his passions. This is the closest than man could come to understanding his plight without special revelation.   When Western man in the post-World War II era turned his back on Christian truth he abandoned even this insight and began embracing the idea taught by Sigmund Freud et al. that liberating the passions rather than ruling them was the path to human happiness.   Although the evidence of experience has long since demonstrated this to be folly Western man continues down this path to misery.   The salvation that God has given to man in Jesus Christ frees us from this bondage to the sin principle, which rules us through what Plato called our passions and St. Paul called our flesh.   This is why the work of Jesus Christ accomplishing our salvation is spoken of as redemption, the act of purchasing a slave’s freedom from bondage.

God created man in a state of Innocence which is an immature form of Goodness.   Man in his Innocence possessed Free Will and was sinless but lacked knowledge and maturity.   He was not intended to remain in this state but to grow into Perfection, Goodness in its mature form.   The Fall into Original Sin interrupted the process of maturation and would have been ultimately fatal to it were it not for the Grace of God and the salvation given to man in Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, which Grace of salvation frees us from the bondage to sin into which we fell that we might finally grow in Christ into Perfection, the maturity of freedom with knowledge, in which we voluntarily choose the Good.    If we could somehow remove man’s ability to choose evil this would in no way assist man in his journey, by God’s Grace, to Perfection.   This is the Christian truth illustrated by Anthony Burgess in his novel A Clockwork Orange (1962)    The experimental technique to which the narrator submitted in order to obtain a reduced sentence, succeeded in removing his ability to commit violent crime, but failed to turn him into a good person.  In the novel, Alex does eventually become a better person but not as a result of the Ludovico Technique.  (1)

I recently remarked that the orthodox arguments for the necessity of Free Will for man to choose the Good can also be applied to Truth to make a more compelling case for free speech than the one rooted in classical liberalism that is usually so employed.   I wish to expand upon that idea here.   Think again of Burgess’s novel.   The Ludovico Technique rendered Alex incapable of committing violent crime – or even of acting in legitimate self defence – by causing him to experience nauseating sickness and pain at even the thought of doing the things that had landed him in prison, but it did not change his inner nature, it merely prevented him from acting on it.  Now imagine a story in which a similar form of extreme aversion therapy to the Ludovico Technique is developed, not for a violent, rapist, thug but for a compulsive liar, (2) which similarly prevents him from speaking what he knows not to be true.   This would not remove his internal compulsion to lie and make him naturally truthful, it would merely prevent him from acting on the compulsion.

If it is important, both to us as individuals and to the larger society to which we belong, that we develop good character by cultivating good habits, then it is important that we cultivate the habit of speaking the Truth to the best of our understanding.   By adapting the lesson of Burgess’ novel as we did in the last paragraph, we saw that artificially removing the ability to do other than speak what we understand to be the Truth is not the way to achieve the cultivation of this habit.   In the actual contemporary society in which we live, we are increasingly having to contend with constraints on our freedom of speech, not through experimental aversion therapy, but through laws and regulations telling us what we can and cannot say.  

These come in two forms.   The first and most basic are rules prohibiting speech – “you can’t say that”.   The second are rules compelling speech – “you have to say this”.   This distinction has in recent years been emphasized by Dr. Jordan Peterson after he ran afoul of a particularly egregious but sadly now almost ubiquitous example of compelled speech – the requirement to use a person’s expressed preference in pronouns rather those that align with the person’s biological sex.   Here, the speech that is compelled is speech that falls far short of Truth.   Indeed, the people who want this sort of compelled speech are generally the same people who speak of Truth with possessive pronouns as if each of us had his own Truth which is different from the Truth of others.

The rules that prohibit certain types of speech are no more respectful towards Truth.   Here in the Dominion of Canada, the rules of this type that have plagued us the most in my lifetime are speech prohibitions enacted in the name of fighting “hate”.   The very first in a long list of sins against Truth committed by those seeking to eradicate “hate speech” is their categorizing the speech they seek to outlaw as hateful.   Hate refers to an intense emotional dislike that manifests itself in the desire to utterly destroy the object of hatred.   This is a more appropriate description of the attitude of the people who call for, enact, and support “hate speech” laws towards their victims more than it does the attitude of said victims towards those they supposedly hate.   The first calls for laws of this nature came from representatives of an ethnic group that has faced severe persecution many times throughout history and which, wishing to nip any future such persecution in the bud, asked for legislation prohibiting what they saw as the first step in the development of persecution, people depicting them very negatively in word and print.   The government capitulated to this demand twice, first by adding such a prohibition to the Criminal Code, second by including a provision in the Canadian Human Rights Act that made the spread of information “likely to” expose someone to “hatred or contempt” into grounds for an anti-discrimination lawsuit.   The CHRA provision was eventually removed from law by Act of Parliament but the present government is seeking to bring it back in a worse form, one that would allow for legal action to be taken against people based on the suspicion that they will say something “hateful” in the future rather than their having already said some such thing.   The campaign against “hate speech” has from the very beginning resembled the actions taken against “precrime” in Philip K. Dick’s The Minority Report (1956) in that both are attempts to stop something from happening before it happens, but the new proposed legislation would take the resemblance to the nth degree.   Early in the history of the enforcement of these types of laws the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the lack of a truth exception did not render the limitations they imposed on freedom of speech unconstitutional in Canada (Human Rights Commission) v. Taylor (1990).   More recently this notion of truth not being a defense was reiterated by Devyn Cousineau of the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in a discrimination case against Christian evangelist and activist Bill Whatcott.   Whatcott had been charged with discrimination for distributing a flyer challenging a politician who had been born a biological male but who claims to be female.   Cousineau made the statement in ruling against the relevance of evidence the defense intended to present as to the complainant’s biological maleness.   Clearly, if the upholding of laws restricting freedom of speech on the grounds of “hate” require rulings to the effect that truth is no defense, then these laws are no servants of Truth.

That, as we have just seen, those seeking to restrict speech are serving something other than Truth, something they are willing to sacrifice Truth for, is a good indicator that it is free speech that is the servant of Truth.   Further analysis confirms this.  If speech is restricted by prohibitions – “you can’t say that” – then unless those who make the prohibitions are both incorruptible and infallible, it is likely that much that is prohibited will be Truth.   If speech is compelled – “you must say this” – then again, unless those compelling us to speak are both incorruptible and infallible, it is likely that what we will be compelled to say will not be the Truth.   The good habit of truth-telling, which we ought to seek to cultivate in ourselves, in which cultivation the laws and institutions of society ought to support us, is a habit of caring about the Truth, searching for the Truth, and speaking the Truth.   Restrictions on speech, rather than helping us cultivate this habit, teach us to take the alternate, lazier, route of letting other people rather than the Truth determine what we must and must not say. 

Even restrictions on speech aimed at preventing the spread of untruths ultimately work against the speaking of Truth.   As long as there are such restrictions, especially if the penalties for breaking them are severe, there will be something other than Truth to which people will look to determine whether or not they should say something, and the result will be that less Truth will be spoken out of fear of running afoul of the restrictions.

The classic liberal case for free speech was made by utilitarian philosopher John Stuart Mill in his On Liberty (1856).   It is the topic of his second chapter “Of the Liberty of Thought and Discussion” which begins by arguing that this freedom is necessary not only when governments are tyrannical and corrupt, but under the best of governments as well, even or especially, when governments have public opinion behind them.  “If all mankind minus one were of one opinion”, Mill wrote “and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.”   In support of the position taken in these justifiably famous words,  Mill’s first argument was that mankind is better off for having all opinions, false or true, expressed, because the expression of the false, makes the true stand out the more.   He wrote:

the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.

In what he stated here, Mill was quite right.   Unfortunately, what he meant by truth, small t, is not the same thing as Truth, big T.   Mill wrote and thought within what might be called an anti-tradition that started within Western thought almost a millennium ago with nominalism and which has produced a downward spiral of decay within Western thought.   Mill came at a late stage in this anti-tradition, although not so far down the spiral as to think that truth is entirely subjective and different for each person as so many do today.    It had been set in that direction, however, by nominalism’s rejection of universals, whether conceived of as Plato’s otherworldly Forms existing in themselves or Aristotle’s embodied Ideas existing in their corresponding particulars, except as human constructions that we impose on reality by our words so as to facilitate in the organization of our thoughts.  By so departing from the foundation of the tradition of Western thought, nominalism introduced an anti-tradition that over time came more and more to resemble an embrace of Protagoras of Abdera’s maxim “man is the measure of all things”.   In the wisdom of the ancient sages, Truth, like Beauty and Goodness, were the supreme universals.   Philosophically, they were the Transcendentals, the properties of Being or existence.   In Christian theology, they existed in God Himself not as attributes or properties, but as His fundamental nature.   Human happiness, however the philosophical and theological answers to the question of how it is attained differed (the Grace of God is the theological answer), consisted in life ordered in accordance with Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.     Mill’s small t truth is worlds removed from this and this weakens what is otherwise a good argument against restrictions on the free expression of thought.   If truth is not Truth, an absolute ultimate value in itself which we must seek and submit to upon peril of loss of happiness, but something which may or may not be available to us because we can never be certain that that what we think is truth is actually truth, then it is a far less compelling argument for allowing all thought to be freely expressed in words that it serves truth better than restrictions would.    It opens the door to the idea that there is something that might be more important to us than truth, for which truth and the freedom that serves it might be sacrificed.    Indeed, Mill provided the enemies of Truth and freedom with that very something else, earlier in the first, introductory, chapter of his book in which he articulated his famous “harm principle”.   He wrote:   

The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others.

On the surface, this seems like a principle that could do nothing but safeguard people against the abuse of government power.    In our day, however, we can see how it is actually a loophole allowing the government to justify any and all abuse of power.   Our government, for example, is currently using it to justify its bid to bring the flow of information entirely under its own control.   The Liberal Party of Canada, which is the party currently in office, has made combatting what it calls “Online Harms” part of its official platform.   The Liberals’ not-so-thinly-veiled intention is enacting this goal is to bring in sweeping internet regulation that will give them total control over what Canadians can say or write or see or hear on the internet.   Neither freedom nor Truth is a high priority for the Liberals, nor have they been for a long time, if they ever were.   The late Sir Peregrine Worsthorne years ago wrote that by defeating its old foes, and turning its attention to declaring war “on human, and even eventually animal, pain and suffering” and thus introducing the necessity for vast expansion of government power, liberalism “from being a doctrine designed to take government off the backs of the people” had rapidly become “a doctrine designed to put it back again”, and, he might have added,  in a more burdensome manner than ever before.

Mill was right that truth is better served by allowing all thoughts to be freely expressed, even false ones.   Apart from the acknowledgement of Truth as Truth, the absolute unchanging universal value, however, the argument is weak.  Within the context of liberalism, it is doomed to give way to that ideology’s insatiable lust to control everyone and everything, in the insane belief that it is protecting us from ourselves, and re-making the world better than God originally made it.   When we acknowledge Truth as Truth, we recognize that it is what it is and that it is unchangeable and so no lie can harm it.   Lies harm us, not the Truth, by getting in our way in our pursuit of Truth, but attempts to restrict and regulate the free verbal expression of thought, even when done in the name of combatting falsehoods, do far more harm of this type than lies themselves could ever do.   Just as men need free will to choose the Good, we need the freedom to speak our thoughts, right or wrong, in order to pursue and find and speak the Truth.

 (1)   The chapter containing this ending was omitted from the American edition of the novel and from Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 film adaptation based on the American edition.

(2)   The idea of preventing a liar from lying has been explored in fiction.    The science fiction device of truth serum is one common way of doing this.  Note that the real life interrogative drugs upon which this device is based, such as scopolamine and sodium thiopental, don’t actually compel someone to tell the truth, they just make him more likely to answer questions put to him.  In Carlo Collodi’s The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883) the title puppet, a compulsive liar, is not prevented from lying, but prevented from getting away with it, by the device of his nose growing whenever he tells a lie.  Closer is the 1997 film Liar, Liar, starring Jim Carrey as a lawyer whose son is magically granted his birthday wish that his father be unable to tell a lie for 24 hours.   William Moulton Marston, the inventor of the polygraph or lie detector, under the penname of Charles Marston created the comic book superheroine Wonder Woman and gave the character a magic lasso that compelled anyone trapped in it to speak the truth.    None of these stories was written with the idea of the necessity of freedom of speech for genuine truth telling in mind. — Gerry T.

William Whatcott

Imperfect Christian “Saved by grace through faith,” Ephesians 2:8,9

Category: Pro-Family

Start Date: October 5, 2021


In June 2016 Bill Whatcott and a half dozen other Christian activists entered the Toronto Homosexual Pride Parade under the guise of being members of The Gay Zombie Cannabis Consumers. During the parade, they handed out about 3,000 small packages made to look like condoms that contained Gospel flyers warning homosexuals of the physical and spiritual dangers related to homosexual sexual practices and sharing the good news that Jesus Christ died for all of humanity, including those who have embraced the homosexual lifestyle.

Bill knew that homosexual activists would be unhappy with his Gospel-centered, church- militant infiltration of their tax funded parade – a parade full of hate speech towards Christians and where open displays of sexual perversion and nudity is rampant. However, Bill never dreamed the homosexual activists would go as far as they have in trying to destroy him, his friends, and his supporters, in an attempt to silence his voice.

In 2016, following the parade, homosexual activists George Smitherman, Christopher Hudspeth and Doug Elliott announced a $104 million dollar class action lawsuit on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, in a bid to financially ruin Bill Whatcott and anyone who helped him in any way to bring the Gospel to the Toronto Homosexual Pride parade. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, former Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberal party of Canada were among the “victims” named in the law suit. After two years of litigation and discovery, the homosexual activists realized that Bill Whatcott did not own anything, that no one with substantial money was supporting him, and that he was never going to reveal the names of his friends, even if he was put in jail for contempt. So, Elliott, Hudspeth, and Smitherman eventually dropped their lawsuit in 2018.

Bill thought that was the end of the retaliation by the LGBT activists for his bringing the Gospel to their parade in 2016. Two years passed by and everyone thought that was the end of the matter. But to Bill’s surprise, in June 2016, one of the last acts of the Ontario Liberal government was to have the Attorney General authorize the laying of the charge of public incitement of hate, contrary to s. 319 of the Criminal Code of Canada, against Bill. It was alleged that Bill’s Gospel flyer that was distributed at the 2016 Toronto Pride Parade by the “Gay Zombie Cannabis Consumers” was hateful against gays.

A Canada-wide warrant for his arrest was issued. When Bill heard about the warrant he voluntarily surrendered to police in Calgary and was brought to Toronto to stand trial for this so-called “hate crime.” Although released on bail once he got to Toronto, one of the release terms subjected Bill’s Gospel flyer to a publication ban in Canada.

Bill’s case proceeded through the criminal justice system for 3 years. After a number of pre-trial motions, the case was heard in the Superior Court for Ontario in October 2021. Although the case proceeded virtually because of government imposed COVID restrictions, it was well attended by those interested in the issues. On December 10, 2021 the trial judge released his judgment finding Bill not guilty and entering a verdict of acquittal. [Search: R. v. Whatcott 2021 ONSC 8077 at Superior Court of Justice Judgments (].

One would think that, with the end of the trial, the homosexual activists would move on and not continue to lobby the government. Even though Bill was found not guilty, those who pressed for the charge and his conviction were not satisfied with the fact that, he did not escape unscathed.

Bill lost his job as a bus driver when the Canada Wide Arrest Warrant was issued and was reported in the media. Between the date he surrendered in Calgary until he could appear in Toronto to get bail, Bill spent almost a week in jail. Unfortunately, that has not been the case. The previous cases left Bill with virtually no money to defend himself on the charge, so he was required to apply to Legal Aid Ontario for assistance. Although there was resistance to his application, Bill eventually received assistance but now owes a large debt to Legal Aid Ontario.

Recently, Bill was served with a Notice of Appeal to the Court of Appeal for Ontario, filed by the Attorney General of Ontario, to which he must respond to protect his name, his reputation and his freedom. The problem is that this entire ordeal has placed an enormous burden on Bill, emotionally, physically and of course financially.


Bill’s lawyers estimate the cost of responding to the appeal would normally be about $100,000. They are prepared to work at the Legal Aid rate, but even then, the cost will be about $50,000. Bill simply is not able to pay that amount.

If God would put it on your heart to help out in defending this important legal victory in the Ontario Court of Appeal, we would be grateful.

Galatians 6:2: “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”



Well-known pro-family activist Bill Whatcott’s trial began today at the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto for an alleged “hate crime” he committed in which he distributed pamphlets at the 2016 Toronto Pride Parade warning people of the physical and spiritual dangers of homosexual activity.

“I’m [being prosecuted] under the ‘Willful Promotion of Hatred,’” Whatcott told LifeSite on Friday.

“The law itself is terrible, I think it is ambiguous,” he added.

According to Whatcott, the Crown prosecutor alleges that his distribution of the flyers constitutes the “wilful promotion of hatred” against homosexuals per the Criminal Code of Canada, and in turn is seeking a prison term of 18 months if Whatcott is found guilty.

Whatcott, who has pleaded not guilty, told LifeSite that he rejected a plea deal for “three years house arrest” because he feels as though he has a “moral obligation” to fight the charge entirely.

“I couldn’t plead [guilty], it is so blatantly absurd, I owe it to this country to not plead [guilty],” he said.

The incident in question took place in 2016 when Whatcott and several others marched in the Toronto Pride Parade dressed in skin-tight green bodysuits with face masks as members of the “Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association.”

As previously reported by LifeSite, the group distributed 3,000 pamphlets that included flyers warning of the spiritual and physical harms of homosexual activity.

The flyers, which are currently under a publication ban from the court, contained graphic images of sexually transmitted diseases, as well as Bible verses and statistics regarding homosexual behavior.

The flyers also displayed a picture of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, calling for their repentance regarding their “homosexual activism.”

Bill only needs $500 to cover his long drive back to Alberta, so let’s support this brave man as he stands up for the truth in court.  

A Small Victory: Yukon Cops Decline to Charge Bill Whatcott With “Hate” for Having Told Biblical Truths About LGBTQ Practices

No Criminal Charges for Whatcott’s mission to the Yukon

Bill Whatcott truth telling and speaking out against the Yukon government’s imposition of homosexual clubs on school children in front of the Yukon Legislature, May 2022

No charges against man who distributed anti-LGBTQ2S+ leaflets in Yukon: RCMP

Yukon NDP and cabinet communications confirmed the respective parties reported leaflets to RCMP

A man who distributed a series of anti-LGBTQ2S+ leaflets in Whitehorse last month will not be facing criminal charges, police confirmed in an email on June 3.

RCMP previously told the News there were four files under investigation related to Bill Whatcott’s recent time in the territory.

“Anyone with questions or concerns is encouraged to reach out to the Whitehorse RCMP or other supports/resources that they trust,” Cst. Carlie McCann said.

“Police will continue to take any concerns from the LGBTQ2S+ community seriously, and are working to strengthen our relationship with the LGBTQ2S+ community.”

An NDP spokesperson and cabinet communications for the territorial government each confirmed in May the respective parties reported the leaflets to police.

The leaflets specifically criticize Bill 304, a motion put forward in the Yukon legislature by NDP MLA Emily Tredger, who is named in the leaflet, during the 2022 spring sitting.

Premier Sandy Silver of the Yukon Liberal Party is also called out by name in the leaflets, alongside Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In April, Yukon legislators from all three territorial parties voted in favour of passing the opposition-led bill to make it mandatory for territorial schools to have safe spaces in the form of activities and organizations dedicated to LGBTQ2S+ students.

Whatcott Acquitted of “Hate” Charges

Whatcott Acquitted of “Hate” Charges

[It’s been three years of torment for Bill Whatcott. In 2016, he and several other Christians infiltrated the Toronto Gay Pride parade disguised as Gay Zombies and handing out a hard-hitting tract that criticized the practice of homosexuality from both a Biblical and scientific point of view. The LGBTQ crowd has not amused by this spoof. High powered homosexual lawyers launched a class action suit against Mr. Whatcott seeking $104-million for hurt feelings and humiliation and, more deviously, seeking the identity of fellow participants or any who had backed him or housed him or contributed to the printing of his literature. The suit was reluctantly dismissed by a judge.

The lobby did not give up. Ontario’s then lesbian premier Kathleen Wynn and her Pakistani Attorney General Yasir Naqvi gave the necessary Attorney General’s consent to laying of charges under Canada’s notorious anti-“hate” law, Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code. Despite lobbying by CAFE and the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, the new Kathleen Mulroney Doug Ford’s first Attorney General refused to stay the charges or withdraw the A’s consent.

The case slowly wound its way through the courts. The charge was always bogus, easily defended on two grounds: sincerely held religious belief and truth (scientific/medical facts about the vile results of homosexual practices). So, today was a sort of Christmas present for Bill and his family. Yet, it marked once again ABUSE BY PROCESS, how a state beholden to entitled minorities can persecute a person and hobble them with bail conditions, stress and worry.

CAFE reached Bill this afternoon at his home in Alberta to congratulate him. “I am just happy to be able to spend Christmas with my family and not in the South Toronto Detention Centre,” he said. — Paul Fromm, Director, CAFE]


I have been acquitted of the charge “Wilful Promotion of Hatred.” This is good news for me personally. The Crown Prosecutor was seeking 18 months incarceration for my zombie stunt where I snuck into the Toronto Homosexual unGodly pride parade with much needed Gospel literature and medical information warning about the dangers associated with the homosexual lifestyle.

While this is good news for me and to some extent this is good news for all Canadians who value freedom of speech, the judgment is not without its concerns. Justice Goldstein noted my stunt fell into the “grey zone” between freedom of speech which is offensive and hate speech which is criminal.

The flyer which I handed out in the Toronto Homosexual UnGodly Pride Parade in my view should not fall into any type of “grey zone.” Now that my trial is over and my bail conditions are lifted, you can freely view the flyer for yourself. This flyer should be unequivocally legal in a democracy.

To see the now uncensored flyer go here:

Feel free to share my flyer with others. This flyer is no longer under a publication ban. Let me also take this opportunity to thank Mass Resistance for keeping this flyer publicly available on it’s website for people to see when it was illegal for me to share it in Canada.

Notwithstanding this victory, I note religious freedom and freedom of speech still remains distressingly precarious in Canada. I have no easy answers on how to bring back the vibrant and free society we once had, but I do pray that Christians will find their boldness and let their lights shine once again in our land. I do believe where there is a national repentance and where people turn from licentiousness to virtue and self control, we will gain greater freedom.

If we embrace Biblical repentance and turn away from sexual anarchy, atheism, and materialism, and turn towards God and an acceptance of the Lordship of His Son, Jesus Christ, our King over our lives; I believe God’s blessing will come once again. It is clear to me where Christ is, there will also be freedom. Bill Whatcott

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1

When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land
2 Chronicles 7:13, 14
