END THE LOCKDOWN MEGA RALLY IN KELOWNA DRAWS 2,000 JOYOUS FREEDOM FIGHTERS KELOWNA. December 12, 2020.
“This is the biggest freedom rally the Okanagan has ever seen,” Dave
Lindsay shouted as he greeted the over 2,000 people who had gathered
here for the Mega END THE LOCKDOWN Rally at noon. They came from Lilooet
and Kamloops, from Salmon Arm and the Lake Country, from Vernon and
Armstrong, from Keremos, Penticton, Okanagan Falls and Oliver. One
caravan even drove up from Vancouver. As the cavalcade from Salmon Arm
and Vernon drove down the highway their honking horns and anti-Lockdown
banners drew many thumbs up and supportive honks. The
rally opened with the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer. Singer and
songwriter Jacqueline-Rose warmed up the crowd as latecomers continued
to stream in. Then,
Dave Lindsay of Penticton, Chairman of C.L.E.A.R. (Common Law Education
and Rights Initiative), who has organized the weekly Kelowna Rally
since April had the crowd cheering with an attack on Bonnie Henry,
British Columbia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health: “Bonnie Henry is
trying to steal Christmas from us. Have as many people in your house as
you want to.” “And,” he added to laughter and more cheers, “Bonnie the
commie will never get another Christmas present!” Mr.
Lindsay noted: “COVID has divided families and it’s divided mine.” He
charged that the government’s position is a mass of lies and
misinformation. “The PCR test they use ha 10 major flaws. It can have an
up to 95% error rate. So, why are we using this test?The death rate in
B.C. was going down before masks were made mandatory in indoor public
spaces. Now, the death rate is going up!” In
a nurses’ case, several years ago, “Bonnie Henry gave testimony that
masks are not effective,” but now she’s imposing them on British
Columbians. “Bonnie Henry, you’re not a hero,” Mr. Lindsay concluded and
the crowd took up a chorus of “lock her up!” Ted
Kuntz, President of Vaccine Choice Canada, also spoke. He outlined the
terrible damage done to his son by a vaccine and the years of suffering
before the lad’s premature and untimely death.
Thanking the R.C.M.P. for helping the rally co-ordinate its march, Mr. Lindsay directed the crowd out from Stuart Park for a parade through the downtown part of Kelowna. Police blocked off one side of the road. The freedom fighters, including many couples with children and even some with babies in strollers stretched more than 10 city blocks. The joyous crowd, with not a mask in site, frequently broke into chants of “freedom” “no more lockdowns!” and, at several points, “Oh, Canada.” Many people along the route gave a thumbs up, many passing cars honked in approval. A few signalled disapproval, including one old lady, masked and alone in her car, who flashed the middle finger at the freedom parade.
the parade many of the freedom fighters lined the sidewalk along Harvey
Street where traffic inbound to Kelowna crosses over a bridge spanning
Lake Okanagan. The
afternoon, however, ended on a sour note when rally organizer Dave
Lindsay was presented with a $2,500 fine by the R.C.M.P., a fine that
the court-wise Mr. Lindsay intends to challenge vigorously. Once again, CAFE, which has backed all END THE LOCKDOWN protests since they began in Vancouver in mid-March, attended with a number of supporters from up and down the Okanagan.
If you live in Ontario, I expect you out next Saturday, 12:00 p.m. at Dundas Square (Yonge and Dundas St.). No excuses!
If you’re outside of Ontario, find a march near you. They’re happening all over the country.
FORCED MASKS — WE’VE BEEN SCAMMED!
“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little if any protection from infection. The desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.” — NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE, May, 2020.
THE GREATEST HEALTH THREAT IN OUR LIFETIMES? — ”
The basic facts are that the coronavirus is not fatal to 99.997 per cent
of people under the age of 65, and not fatal to 94.6 per cent of people
above the age of 65. The vast majority of people of all ages, including
the elderly, have zero or minimal symptoms when afflicted by it. The
approximately 98 per cent of people who do contract the coronavirus and
survive it appear to be thereafter largely immune to it, at least for a
time.” — Conrad Black (National Post, October 24, 2020)
“Research also shows that over 80 per cent of fatalities attributed to
the coronavirus in advanced countries that test comprehensively and
report accurately are people who also suffer from other significant
illnesses or vulnerabilities. The extent to which the coronavirus is the
effective cause of death varies in each case and is sometimes nearly
impossible to determine.” —

Lady Michele Renouf’s Thought Crimes Trial in
Germany Suddenly Adjourned, Gag Order Imposed
actress, model and longtime videographer (through her company Telling Films)
and free speech activist Lady Michele Renouf was to go on trial in
Dresden, Germany on October 16. We can’t report on the proceedings because
neither Lady Michele nor her associate and publicist Peter Rushton is
allowed to comment on the proceedings. We have been advised that they were
suddenly halted and no date set for their continuation.
reports: “On 16th October 2020 an Australian-born Briton goes on
trial in Dresden for ‘incitement’ – not for terrorism or threats, but because
of a 10-minute speech given to 300 mourners at a commemoration of the Allied
terror bombing of Dresden in 1945.The charges have been brought under Germany’s
draconian volksverhetzung law – Para 130 of the criminal code,
against Lady Michèle Renouf. … In February 2018 Lady Renouf attended a
public commemoration in central Dresden, marking the anniversary of the 1945
terror bombing by the Royal Air Force and the USAAF. Responding
to an anti-British comment by someone in the crowd, Lady Renouf was invited to
give a brief spontaneous speech in which she acknowledged Britain’s shame for
its deliberate wartime policy of targeting civilians.
During this speech she referred
to the following facts:
Many influential Britons at
the time condemned Churchill’s barbaric terror bombing policy and the
associated demand for unconditional surrender – such people included Lord
Hankey (formerly Sir Maurice Hankey, founder of the modern civil
service); the Rt. Rev. George Bell, Bishop of Chichester; Labour MP and
future minister Richard Stokes; and government scientist and future
bestselling novelist C.P. Snow.
The terror bombing of Dresden was
a literal holocaust in which tens of thousands of civilians were burned alive.
We shall never know the atrocity’s exact death toll, because the city was
packed with refugees – uncounted and undocumented – fleeing from the advancing Soviet
The Allied justification for this
targeting of civilians was that Britain and America were at war with Germany.
Yet, this factor is ignored when discussing what has become known as the
‘Holocaust’, an unchallengeable dogma taking the place of history.
The simple fact that Jewish
civilians were interned in camps is today regarded as a ‘war crime’ and part of
‘genocide’, regardless of what did or did not happen in the camps
themselves, a topic which Lady Renouf did not address, knowing that it is
illegal in Germany to debate such matters. It is odd to condemn internment
itself as criminal, bearing in mind that both Britain and America interned
enemy aliens. It is scarcely surprising that European Jews were placed in this
‘enemy alien’ category, given the actions of the self-styled leaders of World
Jewry who had as early as 1933 declared economic war on Germany. Moreover the
future founders of Israel such as Chaim Weizmann were actively engaged
in a campaign of covert warfare, some of it contrary to international law, in
collaboration with Britain’s Special Operations Executive. In itself it
was not unreasonable for the German authorities to intern large numbers of
European Jews as potential collaborators in this covert war.
On Friday, October 16, CAFE supporters and Truth and Justice for Germans staged a protest outside the German Consulate in Toronto urging Germany to drop all charges against Lady Michele and show respect for freedom of speech.
CAFE Urges Vancouver City Council Not to Impose Masking Indoors
Canadian Association for Free Expression, BC,
Paul Fromm, Director
Dear Member of Council: In the past eight months, Canadians have seen the most massive intrusion into their freedoms and civil rights in our nation’s history, dwarfing even the War Measures Act.
Travel to some provinces has been banned or restricted; businesses forced to close down; jobs eliminated and the mandating of intrusive,
uncomfortable and largely useless face masks. Remember back to March and April when Teresa Tam, Chief Medical Officer of Health for Canada dismissed masks as not very effective? What has changed? If you’re a smoker, take a strong drag on your cigarette, hold the smoke in your lungs, put on your mask and exhale. The smoke will drift through the mask and up and down and around and over it. If the mask can’t stop the smoke you can see, how will it stop the virus you can’t see?
You are being urged to require that masks be worn indoors at city facilities. The motion is to be presented October 20 by Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung. According to CTV News (October 7, 2020, “Richmond’s medical health officer Dr. Meena Dawar… indicated she favoured other precautions over mandating masks. ‘There is little justification for a mandatory mask policy and I recommend that it not be pursued,” Dr. Dawar wrote, and added buying masks could create ‘additional financial costs for already stretched households,’ as well as create potential barriers for people who cannot wear masks due to certain medical conditions. ‘In the hierarchy of measures public health has recommended to prevent transmission since the beginning of the pandemic, non-medical mask wearing is one of the lowest.'”” I append a statement by many prominent medical men and women that the forced lockdowns and masking are the wrong way to handle the COVID virus.

The Great Barrington Declaration

public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging
physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies,
and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.
both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our
careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing
devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results
(to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening
cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and
deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in
years to come, with the working class and younger members of society
carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave
Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is
available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged
Fortunately, our understanding of the
virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is
more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young.
Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms,
As immunity builds in the population, the
risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know
that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e. the
point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can
be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should
therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd
The most compassionate approach that balances the risks
and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at
minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity
to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those
who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.
measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public
health responses to COVID-19. By way of example, nursing homes should
use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent PCR testing of
other staff and all visitors. Staff rotation should be minimized.
Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials
delivered to their home. When possible, they should meet family members
outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of
measures, including approaches to multi-generational households, can be
implemented, and is well within the scope and capability of public
Those who are not vulnerable should
immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene
measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be
practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and
universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular
activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults
should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other
businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities
should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they
wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the
vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.

Dear Mr. Gammal: I am a client and shareholder of BMO.
Your decision to give a million dollars to certain Black groups is a concern. Do you give money to groups that promote European pride?
Of most concern, however, is BMO funding the Canadian Anti-Hate Network. This is a militant anti-free speech and anti-democratic group. It surveilles and smears people on the right side of the political spectrum.
Among other things,
* CAHN Board member Evan Balgorde lobbied Mohawk College in Hamilton Ontario to cancel a debate featuring People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier during last year’s federal election. Masked radicals protested the meeting trying to block attendees and, in one especially disgraceful incident, three maked thugs tried to block a feeble 81-year old woman on a walker from gaining access to the meeting.
*CAHM Board member Bernie Farber has written that far right parties should not be allowed to run in elections — an unusual take on basic democratic rights.
* Last year, CAHM tried to intimidate and interfere with the rights of Canadians to peacefully support the political party of their choice. It published the names and cities of the 250-plus people who registered as members of the rightist Canadian Nationalist Party in order for it to obtain certification by elections Canada. This matter is a subject of a complaint to Elections Canada.
Ensuring a client’s financial security involves shrewd and informed judgement, not merely following the fashionable trends of the moment. The decision to squander a million dollars, in part to support a nasty, anti-free speech group in Canada, shakes my confidence in the judgement of the senior management of BMO Financial. Sincerely yours, Paul Fromm
Four Hundred People Stress Loss of Freedoms in “END THE LOCKDOWN” Protest at Queen’s Park, Toronto
The “END THE LOCKDOWN” protests in Toronto started two weeks ago at Queen’s Park with about 50 people. The premier denounced these concerned citizens as “a bunch of yahoos” who were reckless. Many now wear the term “yahoo” as a badge of honour. A week ago, the protest had swelled to 200. On a frigid, windy May 9 — yes, it must be global warming — there were 400 protesters of all ages in Queen’s Park. CAFE (the Canadian Association for Free Expression’s) contingent, marching under the Red Ensign quadrupled from the week before. The protesters emphasized several concerns — the lies we’ve been told (3,500-13,000 deaths in Ontario by the end of April — actually fewer than 500); the insane closing of parks and other facilities; the worries about 5G technology and concerns about the danger of vaccines and the terror or compulsory vaccination. Most of all protesters stressed the outrageous loss of individual rights — freedom of movement, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech. Several repeated an important warning: “Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of people.” Independent candidate (Brantford-Brant) in last fall’s federal election Les Bory took the following video. It includes interviews with many protesters, including Paul Fromm, Director of CAFE
Dieter played at CAFE meetings in Toronto and at Paul Fromm’s annual “too-late-for-Christmas-too-early-for-New-Years” Party for the past 20 years. He’d been playing accordion since his teen years. His iconic Die Gedanken sind Frei (“Thoughts Are Free”) was a standby at CAFE meetings. Dieter Heinrich Kahl was 80. He was born in Bremen, Germany on October 24, 1939. He worked for five years in South Africa and came to Canada in 1969. He was an avid gardener and sportsman and a passionate supporter of free speech.
