Randy Hillier, Maxime Bernier & Derek Sloan form END THE LOCKDOWN CAUCUS

I’m happy to announce that I have joined other representatives from all three levels of government to form the End the Lockdowns Caucus. This national caucus is a non-partisan effort to bring forward and represent the views of Canadians who know that lockdowns cause more harm than the virus. 

Together, we will be giving a voice to the millions of people on the other side of the COVID debate in an organized fashion. There will be more to share in the near future as we begin this new journey, and we invite you to build a powerful voice and opposition.

If you are in elected office, join our caucus and have a voice; if not, contact your local representatives at all levels of government and of all political stripes to encourage them to speak for you by joining together. You can also sign our petition to support and endorse this great initiative here. Be sure to share this with your friends and family and encourage them to sign and share it as well.

I’d like to welcome our four newest members Paul Hinman, Mayor of West Lincoln Dave Bylsma, and Alberta councillors Glen Carritt and Jason Alderson. Already in a day we have doubled our caucus.

Within days of our announcement, the Ford government has now said that they will be easing restrictions in the coming days. They know we are organizing and they’re afraid. They don’t want to defend this in the courts, they don’t want to defend this in the legislature because they know they will lose.

Together we will speak loudly, clearly and end the lockdowns. 

Randy Hillier

Several former and current politicians have banded together to form a non-partisan organization calling for an end to lockdowns, which they claim violate Canadians’ fundamental Charter rights. 

The End the Lockdown Caucus was first announced on Thursday in association with the Liberty Coalition Canada. 

So far, the group includes Ontario MPP Randy Hillier, former Conservative MP Derek Sloan, former MP and People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, Perth East Councillor Darryl Herlick and Centre Wellington Councillor Steve VanLeeuwen. 

“After careful examination and scrutiny of mitigation measures undertaken by all levels of government, it is now evident that the lockdowns cause more harm than the virus and must be brought to an end,” claimed a statement signed by the group. 

“We devote our energy and efforts to the just and compassionate objective of reopening our businesses, schools, places of worship, recreational facilities, along with the full resumption and expansion of efficient medical services. We desire to restore dignity and respect for all Canadians by safeguarding our representative democracy and its institutions, defending our Constitution, personal freedoms and responsibilities, whilst implementing focused protection for the most vulnerable.”

Petition to Stand With Derek Sloan

Petition to Stand With Derek Sloan

Right now in the Conservative Party, we are seeing a clear case of dirty politics.

On January 20th, MP Derek Sloan was kicked out of the Conservative caucus. He will no longer be allowed to run as a Conservative Party member in future elections and will now sit as an Independent MP.

This happened after Erin O’Toole initiated a caucus vote which resulted in a majority of Conservative MPs voting to remove him from the caucus. This vote was initiated because Derek Sloan had apparently accepted a $131 donation to his 2020 leadership campaign from a white nationalist named Paul Fromm.

As many quickly pointed out, there are factors around these allegations that don’t hold up. For example, the Conservative Party took a cut from this donation and they weren’t even able to flag his name.

Additionally, the donation was apparently made under the name ‘Frederick P. Fromm’, so even if Sloan was expected to recognize the name of this obscure white nationalist, the donation was made under a name most would not recognize as his.

Derek Sloan is likely being thrown under the bus for being an extremely vocal social conservative.

Derek Sloan has spoken out unequivocally against abortion, euthanasia, attacks on religious freedom and many other vital issues to conservatives and faithful Christians, many of whom see him as their voice on Parliament Hill.

Erin O’Toole has always claimed to want a big tent party in the Conservative movement, but clearly Derek Sloan has been too successful at mobilizing people who agree with him on these issues for O’Toole’s liking.

Sign our petition to tell Erin O’Toole that you stand with Derek Sloan. We want him back in the Conservative caucus – and we want to know everyone who voted him out in the first place so we can support more tolerant conservatives in upcoming primaries and elections.

To make matters worse, the Conservative caucus vote that resulted in Derek Sloan being ejected was confidential. No one knows who voted to suppress Derek Sloan’s freedom to represent his constituents, and who voted in support of his freedom.

If you’re represented by a Conservative MP, don’t you think you deserve to know if they voted to suppress one of Canada’s most outspoken social conservative politicians? Don’t you feel that how a Conservative MP voted on this reflects on whether they’re capable of truly representing religious and social conservative constituents, such as yourself?

There may be good reasons why the Conservative Party would need to hold confidential votes at private meetings. But on issues like deciding what beliefs can be represented in the party, there needs to be transparency.

Join our campaign to get O’Toole to release the names of those who voted to eject Derek Sloan from the Conservative caucus. We must also demand that he do everything in his power as party leader to bring Derek Sloan back into the party.

O’Toole was quick to say after kicking out Sloan that this is not meant to be a condemnation of social conservatives in general. I’m sure O’Toole is internally justifying that he is only kicking out Sloan because he’s divisive and is causing a lot of negative media attention.

But the fact is that the mainstream media in Canada will always ensure that the beliefs of social conservatives will be divisive. These organizations have close ties to Canada’s left-wing parties, and so a socially conservative politician can either hide their views or cause negative media attention through their honesty.

You also cannot kick one of the most outspoken pro-life, pro-family, and pro-liberty candidates out of caucus and not expect a severe backlash from people who hold these values.

When CitizenGO sent out surveys to candidates of the Conservative leadership race last year, Derek Sloan was the only candidate to respond with a full endorsement of the values we surveyed him on.

O’Toole may not be as left-wing as our Prime Minister, but when he says that people like Derek Sloan are not welcome in the Conservative Party, I cannot help but feel he’s attacking the values of CitizenGO and our supporters.

Please sign to stand with Derek Sloan: Erin O’Toole must rectify this poor decision that he initiated. He must allow Derek Sloan back into the Conservative caucus and be transparent about who all voted to kick out Sloan in the first place.

Thanks for all you do,

James Schadenberg and the entire CitizenGO Team

P.S. Remember, if it weren’t for social conservatives, Erin O’Toole would’ve lost to Peter MacKay. Social conservatives are necessary for the success of the Conservative Party and its leader. We must demand to be respected.

“This is ridiculous,” Derek Sloan refuses to leave CPC without a fight

“This is ridiculous,” Derek Sloan refuses to leave CPC without a fight

By True North Wire – January 19, 2021 Share Facebook Twitter Linkedin ReddIt

Conservative MP Derek Sloan says he will fight efforts by Erin O’Toole to kick him out of caucus.

“If I am guilty of something, they are guilty of something. This is ridiculous,” Sloan said in a Facebook video on Monday.

“I’m not going to go down without a fight.” https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?height=476&href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FDerekSloanCPC%2Fvideos%2F438544913916115%2F&show_text=false&width=267

On Monday, O’Toole said he has begun the process of removing Sloan from caucus after it was revealed that Sloan’s leadership campaign received a donation from known white supremacist Paul Fromm. 

“Racism is a disease of the soul, repugnant to our core values. It has no place in our country. It has no place in the Conservative Party of Canada. I won’t tolerate it,” O’Toole said in his statement. https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1351319921423249408&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Ftnc.news%2F2021%2F01%2F19%2Fthis-is-ridiculous-derek-sloan-refuses-to-leave-cpc-without-a-fight%2F&siteScreenName=truenorthcentre&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

However, the MP for Hastings – Lennox and Addington is accusing the party of hypocrisy. 

According to Sloan, Fromm was a party member and voted in the party’s recent leadership contest — something that would have been known to all leadership candidates, including O’Toole, and party headquarters as well. 

In a statement on Twitter, Sloan says he was unaware of this donation and that nobody made any effort to contact him.

“His donation was processed without either my campaign or the CPC realizing who had made the donation,” said Sloan.

“The Party must check each donor to ensure they have not exceeded the maximum, I did not hear from them, ever, on this matter.” https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1351356504201375747&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Ftnc.news%2F2021%2F01%2F19%2Fthis-is-ridiculous-derek-sloan-refuses-to-leave-cpc-without-a-fight%2F&siteScreenName=truenorthcentre&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

Sloan said it’s absurd to expect that any politician to be familiar with the names of every single one of their donors. Fromm’s donation of $131 was one of 13,000 donations to Sloan’s leadership campaign. 

Leadership campaign donations are processed by both the campaign staff and the Party. 

Under the Reform Act, O’Toole can initiate a vote within the party to remove a member of caucus should they lose the confidence of the party. https://www.youtube.com/embed/AzgTqOrHhOY?feature=oembed

FROMM GATE: Conservative Party Accepted Fromm’s Membership Application, Mailed Him Leadership Race Ballot, Accepted Returned Ballot Says Sloan

Conservative Party Accepted Fromm’s Membership Application, Mailed Him Leadership Race Ballot, Accepted Returned Ballot Says Sloan

NewsSpencerFernandoJanuary 18, 20210

How can they justify booting Sloan when it appears responsibility actually rests with the central party.

With Conservative leader Erin O’Toole pushing to remove Derek Sloan on a weak pretext, Sloan is pushing back.

In a letter shared online, Sloan went through the chain of events.

He also made some quite interesting points, including saying that the Conservative Party of Canada approved Paul Fromm’s (going under the name Frederick P Fromm) application to be a party member, mailed him a leadership race ballot, and accepted his ballot when it was returned.

As Sloan notes, “Therefore the Party, and the O’Toole campaign, failed to uphold the same standards to which they are now applying to me.”

He also points out that even after O’Toole said he would investigate what happened, he never even contacted Sloan.

You can read Sloan’s full letter below:

Le FrommGate
La culture woke – nous en parlons souvent– est la version « à la mode »
de la rectitude politique à la sauce stalinienne. Comme il est considéré
comme passéiste de réclamer le goulag pour les opposants, on impose
plutôt la « cancel culture », terme « globish » à la mode cachant une
réalité nettement plus sombre. Que cette vision séduise la gauche au
sens large, on le comprend. Rare sont ceux qui veulent réellement
protéger la liberté d’expression de leurs ennemis; alors on approuve
plus ou moins tacitement, on dénonce ici et là les excès quand ils
frappent un des nôtres sans raison, mais au final, la gauche aime bien
ce pouvoir débordé qui lui permet en jetant une fatwah d’effacer ni plus
ni moins l’ennemi potentiel.


Ce qui est plus difficile à comprendre, c’est pourquoi la droite
commence à adhérer à la culture woke.


Le 18 janvier, le Canada apprenait avec stupeur que l’un des candidats à
la chefferie conservatrice, Derek Sloan, avait reçu un chèque de 131$ du
« suprématiste blanc » Paul Fromm. Dans les heures qui suivaient, Sloan
était éjecté manu militari de Parti conservateur, sans pouvoir répondre
de ces accusations (mais au fait de quoi l’accuse-t-on vraiment?).


Pour comprendre l’affaire, il faut d’abord savoir qui est Derek Sloan,
qui est Paul Fromm, et en quoi 131$ représente un enjeu.


D’abord, Derek Sloan fut le candidat le plus à droite de la campagne
conservatrice, le seul à être ouvertement opposé à l’avortement, le seul
à être pour une droite morale et le seul à être en faveur de la liberté
d’expression. Et justement, Paul Fromm est le directeur du Canadian
Association for Free Expression, une organisation basée sur la défense
de la liberté d’expression. On peut aisément comprendre pourquoi ce
dernier a jugé bon de faire un don à la campagne de Sloan.


Seulement, on reproche à Fromm, qui est aussi un farouche opposant à
l’immigration de masse, de défendre la liberté d’expression de tous, ce
qui n’est pas convenable dans notre société très « Charlie », pas ni «
Soral », ni « Ryssen ».


Bref, on assiste à une double association douteuse : Fromm défend la
liberté de ceux qui sont bafoués; il donne de l’argent à Sloan, donc
Sloan est un nazi. Bingo! Il a fallu quelques heures, voire quelques
minutes au Conservateur Erin O’Toole pour conclure sur cette affaire.
Mais la somme aussi représente un certain intérêt. En acceptant une
somme d’un homme, on estime que le politicien est lié à ce dernier.
Peut-être même qu’il lui doit quelque chose. C’est ce que les
journalistes et O’Toole semble croire du moins. Et, conscients de ce que
valent les politiciens à l’heure actuelle, ils semblent enclins à croire
que la somme de 131$ est suffisante pour acheter un député à Ottawa!
Il faut croire que la famille Rizzuto qui a « investi » des milliers de
dollars dans le Parti libéral du Québec depuis des années aurait dû
investir à Ottawa et profiter des aubaines ontariennes.


Au-delà de ces réflexions sur l’éthique et la corruption que soulèvent
inévitablement cette histoire de 131$, il reste que cela nous prouve une
énième fois le manque de clairvoyance et d’épine dorsale du clan
conservateur. Les stratèges conservateurs semblent passer trop de temps
à écouter la CBC : ils ne réalisent pas que les délires woke sont
minoritaires et qu’il n’y a rien à gagner à jouer contre son propre
camp. Que CBC fasse du 131$ l’affaire du siècle, c’est normal, et c’est
même une preuve qu’on dérange un peu. Un candidat conservateur, un parti conservateur, un homme de droite, ne doit pas chercher à obtenir
l’assentiment du principal organe de gauche au pays. En cela, les
conservateurs devraient regarder ce qui se passe à gauche. Personne à
l’UQAM ne recherche le sceau d’approbation de l’Institut économique de
Montréal et Manon Massé n’a jamais expulsé personne de son parti pour
plaire à Richard Martineau ou Joseph Facal. Ça, tout le monde le
comprend et l’accepte. Alors pourquoi l’opposé n’est-il pas vrai?


Ceux qui connaissent l’expression « cuckservatives » ou « cocuservateurs
» pour les besoins de la francisation, savent pertinemment pourquoi
O’Toole agit ainsi. Pourquoi avant sa démission « choc » Andrew Scheer
refusait de parler de ses idées. Pourquoi l’ancien homme fort de la
droite Stockwell Day décida de dévouer sa vie à la lutte contre le
racisme, démissionnant de toutes ses fonctions pour avoir « nié » le
racisme systémique. Pourquoi le Parti conservateur a éjecté Richard
Descarie de la dernière course à la chefferie.


La véritable question n’est pas pourquoi cette fausse droite agit ainsi
– elle n’a pas le courage de ses convictions et la vision nécessaire
pour les défendre efficacement. La véritable question est : pourquoi y
a-t-il encore des gens pour voter pour elle?

FrommGate
Woke culture - we often talk about it - is the “trendy” version
political correctness with Stalinist sauce. As it is considered
as backward-looking to demand the gulag for the opponents, we impose
rather “cancel culture”, a fashionable “globish” term hiding a
much darker reality. May this vision seduce the left to
broad sense, we understand. Rare are those who really want
protect the freedom of expression of their enemies; so we approve
more or less tacitly, we denounce here and there excesses when they
hit one of ours for no reason, but in the end, the left likes
this overwhelmed power which allows him by throwing a fatwah to erase nothing more
no less the potential enemy.
What is more difficult to understand is why the right
begins to adhere to the woke culture.
On January 18, Canada was shocked to learn that one of the candidates for
Conservative chiefdom Derek Sloan received a check for $ 131 from
"White supremacist" Paul Fromm. In the hours that followed, Sloan
was ejected manu militari from the Conservative Party, without being able to answer
of these accusations (but what are we really accusing him of?).
To understand the case, you first need to know who Derek Sloan is,
Who is Paul Fromm, and how $ 131 is at stake.
 people to vote for her? First, Derek Sloan was the campaign's most right-wing candidate
conservative, the only one to be openly opposed to abortion, the only
to be for a moral right and the only one to be in favor of freedom
expression. And precisely, Paul Fromm is the director of the Canadian
Association for Free Expression, a defense-based organization
freedom of expression. We can easily understand why this
last saw fit to donate to Sloan's campaign.
Only, we reproach Fromm, who is also a fierce opponent of
mass immigration, to defend the freedom of expression of all, this
which is not suitable in our society very "Charlie", not nor "
Soral ”nor“ Ryssen ”.
In short, we are witnessing a dubious double association: Fromm defends the
freedom of those who are scorned; he gives Sloan money, so
Sloan is a Nazi. Bingo! It took a few hours or even a few
minutes to Curator Erin O’Toole to conclude on this matter.

But the sum also represents a certain interest. By accepting a sum of a man, the politician is considered to be related to him. Maybe he even owes her something. This is what reporters and O’Toole seems to believe at least. And, aware of what are worth the politicians nowadays, they seem inclined to believe that the sum of $ 131 is enough to buy an MP in Ottawa! We have to believe that the Rizzuto family who "invested" thousands of dollars in the Liberal Party of Quebec for years should have invest in Ottawa and take advantage of Ontario deals. Beyond these reflections on ethics and corruption raised by inevitably this story of $ 131, it remains that it proves a umpteenth time the lack of clairvoyance and backbone of the clan conservative. Conservative strategists seem to spend too much time listening to the CBC: they don't realize that woke delusions are minority and there is nothing to be gained by playing against one's own camp. That CBC is making $ 131 the deal of the century is okay, and it is even a bit of a disturbing proof. A conservative candidate, a party conservative, a man of the right, should not seek to obtain the approval of the main left body in the country. In this, the conservatives should watch what is happening on the left. Nobody at UQAM does not seek the seal of approval of the Economic Institute of Montreal and Manon Massé never expelled anyone from her party for please Richard Martineau or Joseph Facal. That, everyone understands and accepts it. So why is the opposite not true? Those who know the expression "cuckservatives" or "cocuservateurs »For the purposes of francization, know very well why O’Toole does this. Why before his resignation "shock" Andrew Scheer refused to talk about his ideas. Why the former strongman of Right Stockwell Day decided to devote his life to fighting the racism, resigning from all his functions for having "denied" the systemic racism. Why the Conservative Party kicked out Richard Descarie of the last leadership race. The real question is not why this false right is acting like this - she does not have the courage of her convictions and the necessary vision to defend them effectively. The real question is: why is there do there still people vote for her?
