Free Speech Supporters Demand that Rogers Rehire Don Cherry

Several dozen supporters of free speech from a number of groups, including the Canadian Association for Free Expression, the Canadian Nationalist Party and the Yellow Vests, rallied in support of fired broadcaster Don Cherry Saturday afternoon. The protest took place outside Rogers HQ, which owns Sportsnet and which fired the controversial broadcaster for pointing out last weekend that immigrants, who feast off Canada’s milk and honey and freedoms, should honour the veterans who fought to preserve these rights. Under the old Red Ensign, the flag of the Real Canada, they called for the reinstatement of this iconic hockey and broadcasting legend. Mr. Cherry is the latest victim of the “cancel culture” of political correctness.


Signs denounced corporate cowardice, the intolerant cancel culture and called for defunding the far leftist Canadian Broadcasting Agency that leeches over $1-billion a year to pump Cultural Marxist propaganda into our living room.

Elections Canada.

 

Dear Sirs:

On July 15, I spoke to a “Michael” in your office and filed a formal complaint asking for an investigation of threats made by the Canadian Anti-Hate Network to publicize the names of persons who joined the Canadian Nationalist Party in order for them to receive certification by Elections Canada as a recognized political party. I warned that these threats were being circulated on the Internet to intimidate those who had signed in the hopes that they would withdraw their signatures.

I had been advised that such use of public information was illegal. The names of signators were to be used “for election purposes” — that is, to challenge their validity — not for doxing or intimidation purposes. These threats, I warned, constituted voter intimidation and cyberspace thuggery.

It has now been three months since my complaint and I have received no acknowledgement, let alone any response.

I phoned Elections Canada again today seeking to speak to your legal department. I was told they were unavailable. I explained the newest development and again wish to lodge a formal complaint.

On Sunday, September 15, the threats became reality. The Canadian Nationalist Party is now a duly registered Canadian political party. A website,  Anti Racist Canada,blogspot.com, http://anti-racistcanada.blogspot.com/2019/09/the-cnp-eligible-for-official-party.html whose cowardly authors are, of course, anonymous posted the first two of 250 names of those who had signed up as members. They stated:

“The next article will contain a list of names and cities/towns of individuals who signed the forms that allowed the registration of the far-right Canadian Nationalist Party; we won’t publish the addresses however. .. . These are public documents that every citizen can access and Canadians do have a right to know who in their community has supported the registration of this far-right party.

I won’t be posting many images of the forms in the upcoming article but as a bit of a preview I will post these two. Readers won’t be surprised by what they see.”

The “I” in this article is anonymous. The first two names published were mine and a gentleman from Saskatchewan.

I again ask for an investigation and determination whether this clear effort to target people for exercizing their democratic rights  for election purposes violates the Canada Elections Act.

Sincerely yours,

Paul Fromm

Director

Elections Canada.

 

Dear Sirs:

 

Today I filed a verbal complaint with one of your employees, Michael by name. I now wish to make this a formal complaint.

 

It has come to our attention that a group calling itself the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, with a website by the same name, has declared its intention to widely publicize the names and address of the 250 who will have signed as members of the Canadian Nationalist Party, when it obtains formal registration as a political party

 

In their July 10 statement this group of anti-democratic fanatics stated:  “The Canadian Anti-Hate Network will publish the names of 250 members of the neo-Nazi Canadian Nationalist Party if they are successful in becoming a registered political party. We plan to publish these names and their cities of residence as soon as they become public, and will encourage local media to run stories naming neo-Nazi supporters in their communities. … This kind of naming and shaming is part of our mandate of exposing hate groups to make sure communities are well-informed, and to ensure that there are significant, nonviolent social consequences for supporting hate groups.”

 

This ugly bullying threat is libellous, as well. We have studied the platform of the Canadian Nationalist Party and found that the  group would more accurately be described as traditional Canadians and populists, not National Socialist wannabees. CAHN, who boasts longtime anti-free speech campaigners like Bernie Farber and Richard Warman as board members, seeks  to intimidate citizens from their right to vote as they choose. Furthermore, even if the aims of the party were national socialist in nature, they still have every right to exist and campaign.

 

Canadian Anti-Hate Network Board member Evan Balgord, a former assistant to Toronto’s Mayor John Tory, enthused: “Employer concerns are a natural consequence of supporting a neo-Nazi party. Practically, however, we won’t have the time to research 250 individuals. Local media might. I’d note they can avoid that consequence by emailing Elections Canada and withdrawing their support. – Evan”

 

Then, as a further step to interfere with the secret ballot and the right of citizens to freely choose the party they prefer, the CAHN offers a carrot:  “If any of members of the Canadian Nationalist Party want to avoid being named and facing the social consequences of supporting a neo-Nazi party, they can email Elections Canada at info@elections.ca to withdraw their support.”

 

The threatening tactics of the CAHN are no different than posting goons armed with clubs outside polling stations reminding voters not to vote the “wrong” way.

 

We call upon Elections Canada to investigate the campaign by the Canadian Anti-Hate Network to intimidate voters and further to take all available action against the goons of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network. We may have reason to fear foreign interference in the Canadian election process but it is clear that there are some domestic forces seeking to do the same thing.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

Paul Fromm

For Immediate Release

CAFE Calls on Elections Canada to Investigate Bullying & Intimidation Tactics of Canadian Anti-Hate Network Aimed at Registration of a New Populist Party

REXDALE, July 15, 2019. Today the Canadian Association for Free Expression is filing a formal complaint with Elections Canada demanding an investigation into bullying and intimidation of voters by a group of anti-racist extremists calling themselves the Canadian Anti-Hate Network. In July 10 Twitter postings, this group has threatened to publicize the names and addresses of persons who sign up as member of the newly formed populist Canadian Nationalist Party, in order to qualify the party for official recognition as a party in the upcoming October federal election.

In their July 10 statement this group of anti-democratic fanatics stated:  “The Canadian Anti-Hate Network will publish the names of 250 members of the neo-Nazi Canadian Nationalist Party if they are successful in becoming a registered political party. We plan to publish these names and their cities of residence as soon as they become public, and will encourage local media to run stories naming neo-Nazi supporters in their communities. … This kind of naming and shaming is part of our mandate of exposing hate groups to make sure communities are well-informed, and to ensure that there are significant, nonviolent social consequences for supporting hate groups.”

 

“This ugly bullying threat is libellous,” says CAFE Director Paul Fromm. “The Canadian Nationalist Party are traditional Canadians and populists, not National Socialist wannabees. CAHN, who boasts longtime anti-free speech campaigners like Bernie Farber and Richard Warman as board members, seeks  to intimidate citizens from their right to vote as they choose.”

 “The list of signators  ti register a political party is public ONLY for the purposes of establishing the bona fides of party supporters,” he adds.

In a further tweet, the hitmen of political correctness gleefully anticipate the loss of jobs for people participating in this democratic process. In a July 10 tweet, Canadian Anti-Hate Network Board member Evan Balgord, a former assistant to Toronto’s anti-free speech Mayor John Tory, enthused: “Employer concerns are a natural consequence of supporting a neo-Nazi party. Practically, however, we won’t have the time to research 250 individuals. Local media might. I’d note they can avoid that consequence by emailing Elections Canada and withdrawing their support. – Evan”

Then, as a further to interfere with the secret ballot and the right of citizens to freely choose the party they prefer, the CAHN offers a carrot:  “If any of members of the Canadian Nationalist Party want to avoid being named and facing the social consequences of supporting a neo-Nazi party, they can email Elections Canada at info@elections.ca to withdraw their support.”

The threatening tactics of the CAHN are no different than posting goons armed with clubs outside polling stations reminding voters not to vote the “wrong” way, says Mr. Fromm an activist with 48 years experience battling the forces of censorship and speech constraint in Canada.
