CAFE Supporters Join Weekly END THE LOCKDOWN Rally in Kelowna
APRIL 3, KELOWNA. Great weekly END THE LOCKDOWN Rally. About 175 freedom fighters. Lots of positive honks from traffic. Many copies of DRUTHERS distributed. Mask lovers in an apartment tossed a few water bombs at u. They missed.
Report from Freedom Fighter Gordon Watson in British Columbia on the END THE LOCKDOWN Rallies
The spot where we protest in downtown Victoria is perfect for getting feedback from citizens who go by. Katie has been on the scene since dissident voices began denouncing the Lockdown a year ago. On Saturday she told me lately response to our presence on the doorstep of the Ministry of Health headquarters, is 75 percent favourable to us = drastically up from when she started. There is no movement of folks who ‘get it’ about the SCAMdemic, to take the contrary position. In this authentic populist movement, the trend is our friend
On Saturday March 13 one of the “UN-acceptables” * brought her vintage boom-box and played Van Morrison’s new album. Doing his bit, contributing to the soundtrack of our lives … the poet asks: “Why are they working and why are we not?” Eh?
As the states down south awaken, what looms, is momentary respite before the Tyrants abandon all pretence of fiscal sanity so the economy spirals down into the pigsty of the Parable of the Prodigal Son. By which I mean = implosion of the value of fiat currency issued by the Federal Reserve System against the value of other nations’ currencies / the mother-of-all financial crises. For which the SARS 2 Covid 19 thing, is the cover story
If we aren’t yet in The End Times, 2020 gave us a glimpse of it. Jesus Christ himself foretold that we will be jostling with “the swine” for something to eat. Read the Bible, folks. And ALL of it. As you do, ask for wisdom identifying the Prodigal Son and also the “swine” in that Parable. My own interpretation as derived from a lifetime of studying the theme of National Salvation …. often called the British Israel interpretation of Biblical prophecy …is, the most politically-incorrect thing that can be said these days. That Caucasians are True Israel. Our God chastens those whom He loves. He allows the enemies of Israel to prevail, for a while, to discipline us. We are being humbled for having despised our heritage during the last century of profligate living.
What if that peculiar interpretation is so? Then the tsunami of racial aliens invading our territory is the communist agenda outworking … creating a permanent welfare class with which to drag America down to Third World conditions subservient to the antichrist UN. After the Democrats stole the election, the Republic alongside the Dominion of Canada, both founded in Christianity, are in the grip of crypto commies shamelessly crowing in Time magazine how they clambered up to the high office of the Presidency by hook and by crook.
No mere coincidence the BC New Democrats used the same grand Myth ie. the PLAN-demic, to the same end. John Horgan & Co ‘stole a march’ in British Columbia. And before my critics start yelping about that assertion, read the report of the Ombudsman from last summer Extraordinary Times Extraordinary Measures. Jay Chalke says that what the NDP did – using the Emergency Power Act as excuse to avoid putting a law of general applicability before the Legislature, so as to pretend government by cabinet Order – is illegal to start with.
Of course, many people will be so relieved when the diktats finally go away, that they’ll try just to get back to where they left off. Not me : not some of us who are insulted to the very core of our being by such wickedness in high places.
What we must do, is; restore the Westminster model of representative government as promised in the Terms of Union in 1871. Which requires, first : identifying the perpetrators of this gross medical mal-practice. Naming names, compiling evidence with which to make the case for prosecution of the race Traitors. Then – after all due process of law – putting them away in prison. Those who knowingly participated in this crime against humanity ought to be executed for Treason. Ideally : by firing squad televised live to the nation. That won’t happen, but public opprobrium is appropriate so the names of godless socialistas Horgan, Dix, Farnworth and the one fronting their criminal conspiracy … Doctor Henry … go down in infamy.
Of course I’m aware that what I say comes off as IN-sanity, today. Yet the role of the prophetic type is to tell the nation what it needs to hear, versus what volk want to hear. For the past year, soft words and comforting noises issuing from the pulpits of so-called “Christian churches” abetted UNethical Doktor Henry. False shepherds Pulpit parrots all singing from the same songbook = the Central Party Line = are what let the tragedy unfold.
By hiding from the electorate the bombshell news about the Site C dam disaster Mr Horgan snatched a mandate for 4 more years. That 2020 victory at the polls was the NDP’s highwater mark. As the electorate catches on to his rank perfidy, the NDP is in freefall to the very bottom of the barrel. His administration demonstrates the Peter Principle > people rise to the level of their incompetence.
They are characterologically UN-able to admit the mistake they made. So they just make it up as they go. Dr Henry and Solicitor General Farnworth amending ministerial and Public Health Orders on the fly, admitting out loud there is no science behind them! Such bumbling is a moving target so the paperwork of anyone preparing to challenge an Order in Court, is always out of date. At the outset of the hearing in court last week, the lawyer for the govt. side argued the Churches’ Petition was not properly framed in that it pointed at Orders no longer extant. That got laughed out of court quickly.
It’s sobering to realize that, parroting the cry of “Awk ! covid!” Premier Horgan et al. managed to borrow 10 times more funds in one year, than British Columbia has ever done before. With interest rate at an all-time low, that appears do-able at first blush. But we know one thing fersure … when confidence is lost, interest rates go hyperbolic
Revolutions are nearly always tax revolts. Once it becomes clear how – and by whom – British Columbia was sold out to the Bankxsters, critical mass of resentment will move tax payers to turn on the politicians who did it. I am just getting warmed up : the campaign to have John Horgan removed as an MLA according with the Recall law, starts here.
it does bother me slightly that, in the accompanying photo, I resemble Karl Marx. Reason being: no haircut in a year. Meanwhile, I haven’t been compelled to put on the muzzle, either
Finally : I most strongly urge readers to get a copy of the new newspaper DRUTHERS The Free Press The People’s Friend The Tyrant’s Foe

CAFE Attends END THE LOCKDOWN Rallies in Kelowna & Penticton, March 6 & 7.
Great END THE LOCKDOWN Rally today in Kelowna — about 175 attendees. C.L.E.A.R. leader Dave Lindsay reported some victories in BC court this week.Bonnie Henry’s lawyers admitted the restrictions on outdoor rallies are WRONG! I distributed lots of copies of the great monthy END THE LOCKDOWN tabloid DRUTHERS.
I was happy to join two dozen freedom fighters for the weekly END THE LOCKDOWN Rally in Penticton. Traffic at this busy intersection on Main St was overwhelmingly pro-freedom. Honks & thumbs up were 3 to 1 over fingers. An ancient crone did curse us: “I hope you die of COVID.” Some of us held hands and said a short prayer to block this curse.
Hello freedom lovers!! This is Shawn Jason from Druthers. I’d like to share a few things with you all pertaining to this crazy, awesome project called Druthers. =========== 1. 200,000 Copies on March 2nd 2. Help Distribute in Your Neighbourhood 3. Subscribe for Home Delivery 4. Fundraiser Update 5. Gratitude 6. Ways to Help ===========
1.) 200,000 Copies on March 2nd We did it, again!! Well, almost, but I am confident we will reach the goal before the end of the month so we are placing the order for 200,000 copies of the March issue of Druthers this week.
The print run has doubled each month since this project began in December with 25,000 copies. I think we can confidently say we all have made Druthers into Canada’s fastest growing newspaper! Wowee 🙂
We have another great issue coming and I am excited for you to see it. I hope you love it too.
—– 2.) Help Distribute in Your Neighbourhood There are a whole lot of copies of Druthers coming and your help with distributing them will be much appreciated! Wherever you are across Canada, please hit reply and let me know if you would like some bundles to pass out freely in your community too. Let’s wake up the neighbours 😉 HIT REPLY and tell us your city, province & how many bundles of papers you would like to distribute. We’ll put you in touch with the nearest distribution hub in your area.
—– 3.) Subscribe for Home Delivery You can now subscribe for home delivery anywhere in the world. Ensure you get your Druthers each month while also supporting the growth of this project. See the options and sign up here: www.druthers.net/subscribe
—– 4.) Fundraiser Update Together, for the 4th month in a row, you made it happen. The fundraiser is about to reach its goal and 200,000 copies will be printed and freely distributed all across Canada. It is incredible to see this paper growing so fast!
www.druthers.net/donate At just 10 cents per copy, donations are effectively invested into bringing real, honest news and information to more Canadians. No salaries or overhead is ever taken from donations. 100% of it goes to printing and distribution. If we exceed this month’s funding goal, overages will be rolled over into next month’s fundraiser, with which we will be aiming for an even bigger, 300,000 copies!!! So please keep it coming.
—– 5.) Gratitude I just want to say, I knew this paper would be well received, but I had no idea just how much and how quickly it would be embraced, loved and supported by so many of our family of freedom lovers all across Canada.
Druthers is taking on a life of its own in cities across Canada. People are coming togther and working together to bring truthful information to the people of their communities. And what a beautiful thing it is.
As I see it, nothing matters more at this time than to plant seeds of thought that will hopefully encourage people to question things more deeply. To stop blindly believing what is being fed to us on the tv, and to start looking more closely at the world around us. For one thing is certain… almost nothing presented to us in this world is as it appears.
—– 6.) Ways to Help Would you like to help Druthers grow bigger and deeper reaching more quickly? Do you have time, skills, abilities or other resources you can bring to the table? I’d really love to hear from you. Let me know how you see helping things along.
What is of particular interest right now:
a.) Website developers / designers. We could really use some pro help with rebuilding the website and getting it better set up for more digital content, which is coming soon.
b.) Content creators: videographers, photographers, reporters, writers, video editors, etc. If you make content and would like to lend some of your skills toward growing Druthers, let’s talk.

New Covid Conspiracy Newspaper With Extremist Ties Eyes Canada-Wide Distribution
new newsprint and online publication is making the rounds at Ontario’s
anti-lockdown protests. Billing itself as a source for information not
affected by government or big tech censorship, after only one issue Druthers has already made itself a home for fringe voices and ideas.
December 18, 2020
a new print paper devoted to Covid conspiracies, launched its first
edition in Toronto on November 28. Claiming 25,000 hard copies in
circulation and an online edition, it is receiving a lot of buzz in
A second issue is planned for January 1, and editor Shawn Jason
Laplante, who goes by Shawn Jason online, announced that a partnership
is in the works with Ted Kuntz of Vaccine Choice Canada (VCC).
The status of this arrangement is unknown, and Laplante told
the Canadian Anti-Hate Network he was “just exploring some ideas,” when
asked for comment.
He presented it to his supporters a little differently.
“I just received a phone call from Ted Kuntz, president of
Vaccine Choice Canada and it looks like we are joining forces to make
Druthers even bigger and deeper reaching!” Laplante wrote in the private
Druthers Facebook group on December 4.
In the print edition, all of page two of the paper’s first issue was devoted to a press release from VCC.
While he told us there wouldn’t need to be a newspaper without
the “rampant censorship” seen in society, his goal is to reach national
circulation of half a million copies.
Current funding for the paper is coming from a mixture of
sources, including crowdfunding, ad and merchandise sales. Laplante
states on his GoGetFunding page that
$3,000 is all that is needed to produce and distribute 25,000 copies,
and that $5,000 would enable him to complete a publishing run of 50,000.
For the upcoming January 1st edition, he has raised $1,680 as of
December 6. Assuming all the supporters who advertised their business
ventures in the first edition paid for the space, he brought in
approximately $1,125 through advertising sales.
Laplante, who appears to be based in Toronto, writes in his first editorial that Druthers’
creators are “explorers of truth” who “love and care for all of
humanity.” While this may be what he would like people to believe, it is
not the case.
Dave Bolton of Newmarket, who is working closely with Laplante on Druthers, is the father of Mike Bolton, another frequent anti-lockdown protest attendee who describes himself as a fascist Atomwaffen Division supporter.
The paper is being promoted by the anti-Muslim ACT! For Canada’s website, alongside white nationalist and former University of New Brunswick professor Ricardo Duchesne’s Council of European Canadians, QAnon content creator Amazing Polly, and The Epoch Times, among others.
The paper was also promoted by a user on the notorious white supremacist forum Stormfront. RykerB posted a description of the project that appeared on other sites, including ACT! For Canada:
“This is exiting [sic] news! The first issue of this new newspaper is
complete. 25,000 physical copies have been printed. Druthers thanks
everyone for their love and support in bringing this to fruition. This
weekend they begin distributing the hard copies freely around Toronto
& neighbouring cities. In addition to the physical newspaper there
are also digital, and online versions.”
In response, Laplante stated he was unaware of the promotion on Stormfront and ACT! For Canada.
“Druthers is being talked about everywhere by many people. I’m
not a hater at all. Quite the opposite,” he said. “Heck, I don’t even
hate the globalists who I believe are committing massive crimes against
humanity right now.”
In addition to the expected anti-vax, anti-mask rhetoric, and
articles about how to organize a protest march and how to navigate
relationship challenges that may arise when one’s significant other is
not on board with anti-mask beliefs, Druthers also dips into the far right side of things by recommending “websites of interest” including The Corbett Report, Rebel Media, Dan Dicks’ Press For Truth, Lamont Daigle’s The Line Canada, and Hugs Over Masks, among others.
An article entitled “Panopticon: COVID-19 and the reign of
terror” by self-described “environmental journalist” Guy Crittenden
raises eyebrows with its heavy reliance on QAnon ideas and assorted
conspiracies, comparison of global COVID responses to Nazi eugenics and
the Holocaust, while leaning on a thinly veiled antisemitic trope that
globalists are “not connected to spirit.”
When asked about the content of the articles, he acknowledged
that “some people will call some articles conspiracy theory,” but said
his paper is about “exploring truths rather than trying to be a voice of
At first glance, 48-year-old Shawn Jason Laplante appears to be
an unlikely publisher of such content. Indeed, some of his friends even
called him out for an October 4th Facebook post promoting his favorite
YouTube channels including Wayne Peters’ What’s Up, Canada?, Dan Dicks, and Amazing Polly, among others.
A self-described “Reality Alteration Specialist,” Laplante, a
home renovator and carpenter by day, has poured his passions into his
many side projects that, until now, promoted love and peace while
selling T-shirts and coffee mugs.
His most successful venture was I Love You Pass It On, or
ILYPIO, an admittedly endearing effort to spread little love cards
around the world to make people smile. He boasts that he got the cards
into over 800 communities worldwide, and his T-shirt made it into a
couple of music videos and was even promoted by Darius McCrary of Family Matters fame.
In an ironic twist, back in 2015 Laplante organized teams to
give out free hugs around Toronto, which almost seems like training for
what was to come in 2020. However, at that point, it does not appear
that he was telling his friends to “keep an open mind” when it comes to
In June he asked for volunteers to take over the management of
the ILYPIO project, stating in the comments, “I’m feeling drawn to step
up my activism game. Iloveyoupassiton was
always intended as a form of activism, but lately I am moving towards
more aggressive activism… As the powers that be have upped their game
recently, so must I.”
This new aggression is leading Laplante to boost people like
antisemitic conspiracy theorist, David Icke on his social media and
within the pages of Druthers.
Icke is a one-time British football player known for his
promulgation of the theory that most major world leaders are a race of
reptilian and pedophilic aliens. Icke is also a decades-long
superspreader of conspiracies and misinformation — he claims that
“Rothschild Zionists” control the world, that Jews financially supported
Hitler during the Second World War, and that Jews were behind both the
9/11 terror attack and the 2008 recession.
Icke has also argued that schools should permit the study of Holocaust denial.
Recently, Icke was banned from YouTube after promoting the idea that COVID-19 was actually caused by 5G technology.
Laplante said in a comment that he was unaware of Icke being antisemitic.
Also, appearing in the pages is controversial Aylmer pastor
Henry Hildebrandt, who is making news for his hardline anti-mask
leadership of his congregation. Twenty years ago Hildebrandt courted
controversy when he fought the Children’s Aid Society to maintain the
right to strike his children and counsel his congregants to carry out
similar discipline in their families.
While Laplante is careful to say he doesn’t fully agree with
some of the individuals and organizations he highlights, at some point
fellow travellers become fellow believers and it is very concerning
where this new venture will lead him. In a brainstorming thread on
Facebook, Laplante proposes targeting COVID testing centres with his
propaganda while others suggest handing out flyers to parents outside
schools at drop-off/pick-up times.
“I don’t propose people distribute newspapers at COVID testing
centers,” he said when asked, “but offering up a flyer with some
information about the tests isn’t a bad idea.”
Laplante and Druthers
illustrate the dangers that come when New Age or anti-vax proponents mix
with racists and other far right actors. A strong belief in seeing the
goodness in everyone coupled with an attitude that “the enemy of my
enemy is my friend” leads to an increasing suspension of common sense
and moral judgement while pursuing the common goal of fighting covid
It remains to be seen whether Druthers
will continue to grow or will fall flat despite the support and assumed
injection of funds from VCC, but one thing is certain: Laplante has
strayed significantly from his proclamations of equal love and care and
it may take a significant change for him to return to that worldview.
