Aleksander Solzhenitsyn’s Powerful Advice for a Broken Canada
The past few weeks have been a ‘wild ride’. We witnessed media hype over supposed UFO sightings and shootdowns, media silence on catastrophic train derailments, and obfuscation from those in positions of leadership, including on the topic of foreign interference in our elections. That was rounded out yesterday when an ostensibly neutral commission, ignoring glaring evidence, brought in the anticipated ruling of ‘no harm, no foul’ regarding the invoking of the Emergencies Act.

As if these were not enough, a parliamentary committee decided that killing citizens with taxpayer dollars shouldn’t be limited to adults, the Canadian government wants to help end minors’ lives as well. One of the baseline thresholds for a civilized democracy is the protection of her weak and innocent. Apparently not the case in Canada, circa 2023.
In the face of crumbling foundations, Canada needs grounded leaders able to foresee pitfalls, discern lies and recognize true danger, and who continue to walk with steadfast resolve through the emergent chaos.
Aleksander Solzhenitsyn, the courageously principled author and dissident, was asked to address Harvard in 1978 after he was exiled from the Soviet Union in 1974. We’ve heard much about rights and freedoms this past year (I’ve said plenty myself), but freedom is not an end in itself.

I recommend you read the entire address, but the excerpt below was highly prescient, piercing to the core of our current national crisis:
In early democracies, all individual human rights were granted on the ground that man is God’s creature. That is, freedom was given to the individual conditionally, in the assumption of his constant religious responsibility. Such was the heritage of the preceding one thousand years. Two hundred or even fifty years ago, it would have seemed quite impossible, in America, that an individual be granted boundless freedom with no purpose, simply for the satisfaction of his whims. Subsequently, however, all such limitations were eroded everywhere in the West; a total emancipation occurred from the moral heritage of Christian centuries with their great reserves of mercy and sacrifice.
The West has finally achieved the rights of man, and even to excess, but man’s sense of responsibility to God and society has grown dimmer and dimmer. In the past decades, the legalistic selfishness of the Western approach to the world has reached its peak and the world has found itself in a harsh spiritual crisis and a political impasse. All the celebrated technological achievements of progress, including the conquest of outer space, do not redeem the twentieth century’s moral poverty, which no one could have imagined even as late as the nineteenth century.”
Our loss of a collective moral rudder has the good ship Canada drifting toward rocky shores. It’s why we’ve focused lately on the work to be done closer to home, daily; connecting locally for support and spiritual grounding; being the best spouse, friend, or parent we can; raising children grounded in truth, aware of a danger-filled world, but who’ve been taught resilience and courage; speaking the truth, in love, even when it sacrifices our peace, reputation or career.
If the past weeks confirmed one thing, it’s that hope is not found in political leaders (or those waiting in the wings), lawyers, commissions or similar. They can be peripheral means to various ends, but more often than not, they’re making things worse, and rapidly so. As Jordan Peterson said recently “I don’t see how we could be stupider here in the West if we actually took courses in stupidity and tried as hard as we could. We seem to be doing everything we can to break everything as rapidly as possible”.

Don’t sell yourselves short on your ability to discern right from wrong, smart from stupid, and to act in ways that greatly impact your spheres of influence. We may desire freedom, but without taking on the immense responsibility it requires, we simply join the race for a version that is little more than self-centered hedonism. That responsibility may mean boldly speaking truth in the face of lies. Other times, it may require refusing to comply when compelled by an authority to act in ways harmful to those around us or which violate our conscience. Heed that conscience. Be the steadfast, calm leaders our nation so desperately needs.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Freedom Fighter Jeremy Mackenzie Cancelled Without Reason by Scotiabank

Freedom Fighter Jeremy Mackenzie Cancelled Without Reason by Scotiabank

Hear the recorded phone call of Jeremy Mackenzie with the Bank of Nova Scotia. It just terminated this dissident’s account without a reason. “Gerry” from the bank gives the news to this decorated Canadian Infantry Veteran His crime? Being a Patriot. Jeremy played a major role is last winter’s freedom protests against government tyranny and COVID restrictions.

Testimony at the Emergency Act inquiry revealed the vile role of many of Canada;s big banks, headed as they are by Globalists.

According to Blacklock’s Reporter, recently released records show that on February 15 of this year, Assiniboine Credit Union in Winnipeg, Manitoba, reported one of its users to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) because he had “liked” the Freedom Convoy Facebook page, telling the federal police he is “potentially involved” in the protest. [And what if he had been? Peaceful protest is our right. This is not Red China yet!]

The report to the RCMP came the day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau enacted the Emergencies Act (EA) to shut down the protest, wherein the government gave banks and financial institutions the power to freeze suspected Freedom Convoy donors’ accounts without a court order. Assiniboine went as far as having its staff members monitor the man’s social media posts, as well as comb through his checking account transactions. Management at Assiniboine noted that before the EA was enacted, “account activity was being monitored but not deemed illegal.”  [Such disgusting collaborators in repression and toadies to tyranny!]

Police noted in a memo that same day that the credit union member in question was a “well known anti-vax” person, suggesting the tip from the credit union was followed up on.

In another instance of financial institutions using the EA as a reason to go after their customers, the same report shows that an unnamed Canadian bank had also reported to police one of its credit card users who had allegedly purchased a gas mask from an army surplus store.  [A perfectly legal activity.]

This information was shown in a February 17 email, with police noting “It won’t come as a surprise but a bank has frozen assets of an individual and they also disclosed that a purchase was recently made at an Ottawa Army Surplus store.” 

“Most likely a gas mask,” added the RCMP

These recent revelations are not the first instances of Canadian financial institutions reporting their customers to the police due to their political views. As noted last month by LifeSiteNews, records show Desjardins Group also reported to the RCMP some of its customers who were making financial transactions supporting the Freedom Convoy.  The bank had reported a couple that made a $20,000 deposit, which the bank claimed was being used to pay for pro-Freedom Convoy signs. [Even if their suspicion was correct, making political signs is not illegal. Canada is not North Korea YET!]  

Trudeau’s use of the EA led to almost $8 million in funds from 267 different people being frozen, in addition to 170 bitcoin wallets. The full impact of Trudeau’s cabinet’s use of the EA to expand the scope of the Proceeds Of Crime And Terrorist Financing Act to allow for such freezing has yet to be determined by a parliamentary committee. 

Last month during a round-table discussion at the Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC), panel member Dr. Gerard Kennedy, who along with other POEC members was tasked with advising government officials on future policy in light of the Freedom Convoy, seemed to agree with the controversial freezing measures taken by the Trudeau government, saying it was ‘efficacious’ and ‘even justified’ for banks to freeze the assets of demonstrators for protesting government COVID measures.  

During testimony before the POEC last month, it was also revealed that one Canadian bank executive suggested Freedom Convoy protesters could be labeled as “terrorists” to allow for a quick freezing of their funds. [And these are the people protecting YOUR money? To the threatened Globalist elite, words lose their usual meanings. Peaceful dissent is mislabelled ‘terrorism’, which means shootings and bombings.]

Finance Minister Chyrstia Freeland’s testimony before the commission showed that she even agreed with one Canadian bank CEO’s call for possible military intervention in the Freedom Convoy. [She’s big on fighting to preserve ‘democracy’ in the Ukraine (actually an immensely corrupt government) while crushing dissent here at home.]

New Year Message About Freedom in Canada

New Year Message

What a difference a year can make! What a difference we all together can make.

To all Canadians far and wide, and especially to those Canadians who know, and with whom we are fighting for what is ours, what always will be ours and for that which we will gift to the ones who are yet to come.

Only 12 months ago, those, who recognized the tidal wave of tyranny that had engulfed us were the small “fringe minority”. Despite the blistering waves of propaganda that continued to batter us 24/7, and the constant threats of retaliation, we started to look up and out and realize we were not alone.

Darkness was all around, it was midnight!

Slowly and surely from the beginning to 2022, we began to emerge and we began to Unite.

Together we started to bring forth the righteous ire of a sleeping population.

For many Canadians, this was the first time they began to realize the extent of the crimes that had been committed against them, and this was the first time they started to see the true violent nature of their “representative” government.

They also started to realize that the institutions that we thought are here to protect us, are really here to repress us.

Many Citizens, for the first time, attempted to engage with their “elected representative”…….and got nothing, or a form letter. Some of you have engaged with or at least started to watch these representatives, and for the first time are realizing how mediocre and unimpressive most of them are.

Do you also know how rich they have become???? Stay tuned……

There have been some exceptions MP Ted Falk comes to mind, but these are almost non existent. There are a total of 338 members of the Canadian Parliament….how many of them answered you? Do you ever hear from them except when they want more of your money, or when there is an election? What about the 105 Senators, and the thousands of Provincial Representatives?

The Truckers will always stand as a symbol of the courageous defiance of a small few against an entrenched and violent dictatorship.

When the dictators realized that too many of the public were starting to see, with their own eyes, what was happening, and the captive and corrupt propagandist media could not stem that tide…..the dictators did what dictators always do, they took up arms and violence against the unarmed and peaceful.

Following the Truckers, came thousands of individuals and small groups. At first, and once again these small groups were alone calling out into the Abyss, but slowly and surely, they too started to come together. With the help of these patriots and with the coming out of truly independent and fair minded Alternative Media Sites, the message of freedom started to come out.

The message of how they lied to us for two years, and how their cure was harming and even killing us started to come out. At first our voices started as a whisper, but soon, with the help of thousands, our voices began a roar, and now even those corrupt institutions that foisted this on the public are starting to trickle out the Truth.

Make no mistake, the criminals are not yet done! They are creating even larger lies.

The terms “Doctors and Scientists Are Baffled..”, or “….Suddenly Died” and “Myocarditis” or “Unknown Cause of Death” are now common place.

Did you ever hear these terms before now?

How many of you out there knew what “myocarditis” was, before now?

They are also amping up their other older lies, and creating new ones.

Climate Emergency, World War, Shortages, Endemic Racism……

These are all new distractions.

Like any other trapped animal, these ones are getting even more desperate.

They know the end is near.

They know you are winning.

They want you to give up, they want you to be distracted.

We can now see the end, we know the tide has turned, and our darkest hour has past, but we have a long long way to go!

This year we must fight even harder, because as the faint rays of freedom’s light is starting to cut through the darkness, we must together ensure that it will not fade, but brilliantly light the days to come.

These criminals will be brought to justice. It is; however, not just a matter of time, it is in fact a matter of each of you working together to defeat these evil doers.

Never before in the history of the World has so much evil been inflicted by so few on so many. And never in the course of the history of the World has freedom stood on the precipice for so many all around the World.

Canada, has historically been a country that, despite our size, has led that way in human rights, peace, prosperity and the rule of law.

We can be this beacon again.

It is up to each of us to do their part.

Don’t believe me? Read our post on the difference we have made in 6 months, with your help.

2023 holds the promise to being the next step toward a new and beautiful future of freedom and peace, but there is also the risk of the other.

What we accomplished in 2022 is nothing short of miraculous. We are fighting a plan and an entrenched enemy that has been silently attacking us for decades, and they have the full power of an armed state. And yet we are turning the tide…..

What can you do?

Stay the course. Speak out in large ways, if you can, or in small ways if that is what you can do.

Educate yourself.

Educate others.

Copy our report, and send it out to friends, family, leaders, professionals everywhere you can! Do not concern yourself that someone else may have already sent it….send it again, and again and again!

Form a small group within your community and engage your elected officials.

Join an existing group.

Comment publicly if you can.

Attend rallies, meetings Town halls.


Get Involved.

Ask questions and demand answers from your leaders!

If you see a lie on the Legacy Media, copy it, point it out, send it out to your contacts, to us, and we can bring it to light. Do your homework.

Turn off the TV

Find out about Canadian Bill C-11…Understand it, and make your opinion known, they are trying to stop us from talking to you!

If you still do not believe this is true, ask yourself this question:

“Do I feel safe in expressing my opinions in public, or do I self censor my legitimate and protected opinions for fear of retribution from employers, government, institutions etc”…

If you do not feel safe, then how can you believe you are free?

It is up to you!

Join Us!

Make Sure That When Your Grandchildren Think About These Years, They Will Say a Prayer of Thanks for YOUR Sacrifice.

For all of those who have gone before us, for all of those who stand with us, and for all of those who will join with us soon….We wish you the best and most successful 2023.

We will be with you in the light of freedom and future reconstitution.

For those of you, still on the fence, or unaware, we cannot wait for you, but we will embrace you when you arrive.

May God Bless you all, protect you, and guide you in this epic struggle against Evil that we are all now a part of.

The Price Tamara Lich Has Paid for Being A Leader of the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy — The Revenge of Our Politicized Justice System

On Day 16 of the Emergencies Act hearings, the main organizer of the Freedom Convoy  Tamara Lich took the stand for the first time since her bail hearing in late July.

Lich was asked about what her life had been like after her arrest in Ottawa on Feb 17.

“I’ve lost my job, I’ve lost my freedom of speech, I’ve lost my freedom to communicate with my friends,” said Lich tearfully.

“I have to be very careful about every move that I make,” she continued. “My trial’s not until next year… I have to live under these conditions for a year.”

That’s the way Canada’s soft tyranny “justice system, silences dissidents. Tamara Lich was arrested for the minor non-violent offence of counselling mischief. Yet, she was jailed for 56 days and twice denied bail. When she finally got bail, her conditions would make Stalin blush. She was completely silenced politically. This gag order may last until her trial which could be many months away.

Her counsel Edmonton lawyer Keith Wilson told Rebel News (October 14, 2022): Her “bail conditions are worse than
the conditions, the free speech conditions that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has put on [Alexei] Navalny, his
chief critic. You could interview him in his jail cell in Russia, but you cannot interview, in Trudeau’s Canada, Tamara Lich about the circumstances of her protest!”

How the Justice Centre Defends the Truckers & Opposes Police State Emergencies Act

Justice Centre Statement on Convoy Funding

Posted On: September 7, 2022

The Justice Centre is a registered charity committed to defending the constitutional rights of Canadians.

Canadians and truckers from across the country made their way to Ottawa in January, to exercise their right to peaceful protest against government mandates. This was a grassroots movement that resulted in the largest peaceful protest in Canadian history. The Government responded by invoking the Emergencies Act, bringing in armed police, and using unprecedented power and violence to end an otherwise peaceful protest. The government also froze bank accounts of Canadians who supported the protestors.

In February 2022, the Justice Centre funded a team of lawyers to provide legal advice and representation to peaceful Canadian protestors in Ottawa. Justice Centre lawyers facilitated communications with police and played a role in coordinating an agreement with the City of Ottawa to move trucks out of residential areas.

Since February, the Justice Centre has continued to provide legal representation, through its own lawyers as well as outside counsel, to:

  • Approximately 50 Canadians who have been criminally charged when their sole “crime” was to exercise their constitutional rights to assemble peacefully in Ottawa and express their opposition to government lockdowns and vaccine mandates;
  • Truckers and other Canadians who have been named defendants in a $305-million class action lawsuit brought against them in Ontario Superior Court;
  • Canadians who are challenging the abuse of the Emergencies Act in Federal Court, seeking a declaration that the government did not have reasonable grounds to do so and in fact, abused these unprecedented powers;
  • Freedom Convoy participants who have standing to participate in the Public Order Emergency Commission and will provide factual accounts of the events that occurred during the protest in Ottawa in February 2022.

The Justice Centre is also an official party before the Public Order Emergency Commission and has been granted standing to provide policy recommendations to the Commission about the constitutional implications of invoking the Emergencies Act.

The Justice Centre has also funded the criminal defence of Tamara Lich, a Medicine Hat mother and grandmother, who has been subjected to five bail reviews, and was arrested on a Canada-wide warrant, for an alleged, minor bail breach.

Ms. Lich, who was not charged with a violent crime, spent a total of seven weeks in jail, in spite of not having any criminal record.

In addition to the cases which relate directly to legal matters resulting from events in Ottawa in February 2022, the Justice Centre continues to fund hundreds of cases across Canada where the Charter rights and fundamental freedoms of Canadians are threatened by government.

It is through the voluntary donations of our valued and dedicated supporters that it is possible for the Justice Centre to defend the free society and continue to challenge oppressive government actions that began in earnest more than two years ago. We receive no government funding.

While the Justice Centre’s funding capacity is not unlimited, the Justice Centre helps as many individuals as possible through our network of lawyers and dedicated staff and will continue to do so to the full extent our resources allow.

Canadians who have access to funds and can contribute to their legal costs are encouraged to do so, because the Justice Centre can only take a small percentage of the thousands of requests for help we receive each year. The matters the Justice Centre is involved with affect all Canadians in the common goal of living in a free and democratic society, where government is transparent and accountable to its citizens. We want to thank all our supporters for their continued commitment to our important work.

How to Make Your Submission to the Rouleau Commission Investigating Trudeau’s Invocation of Rights Stealing (stolen/frozen bank, trucks seized, peaceful protest smashed) “Emergencies Act”

I want to give you an important update about the Emergencies Act inquiry and some information about how you can personally contribute to the inquiry and hold the government to account.

The use of the Emergencies Act was illegal, and the Canadian Constitution Foundation is fighting it in court. We are also participating in an independent inquiry – the Rouleau Commission – that is looking into the government’s use of this law.

The Rouleau Commission is now accepting comments from the public – that means YOU can send the inquiry a public comment about your experience and reaction with the 2022 Freedom Convoy and the government’s illegal and unconstitutional use of the Emergencies Act.

Your comment may be quoted in the hearings, or in the Commission’s final report. It is imperative that the Commission hear from members of the public and understand the full impact on citizens of the federal government’s illegal and unconstitutional use of the Emergencies Act.

This is an important way for your voice to matter. There are many untold stories related to the Freedom Convoy. Much of the reporting of the protests was disconnected to the experience of participants and observers who were on the ground at these protests in early 2022. These public comments are now an opportunity for those stories to be told as a part of the Inquiry.

Your comment can be submitted by email to
It can also be submitted by mail to:   Public Order Emergency Commission
c/o Main Floor Security Desk
90 Sparks Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A3  

Before you send in a public comment, I want to give you style suggestions, the background facts you need to know, some key messages and questions you may want to consider answering, and of course, the technical details of how and when to send in your submission. I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
I want to start by saying this inquiry is NOT the government. It is an independent and non-partisan commission chaired by a very respected court of appeal judge and staffed by experienced lawyers. This inquiry was not called out of the kindness of the Prime Minister’s heart – it is required by law. I think if it was not required by law, it almost certainly would not be taking place. So my first piece of style advice is to remember that your comments are NOT being sent to the government. They are NOT being sent to the prime minister, or to any politician. It is being sent to a judge.

So don’t use bad language. Don’t use partisan language. It won’t help. In fact, it will only undermine the credibility of your message. I want your submissions to matter. It’s too easy to dismiss a public comment that is full of angry and profane language, or that comes across as a partisan attack.

I get that a lot of you are angry – I’m angry too. But let’s channel our anger into something useful by sending in public comments that use our words to communicate the damage that the government has done by illegally using the Emergencies Act.

Remember that your submission may be referred to or quoted by the Commission either in the report or in the public hearings. Use language you would be proud to have attributed to you, even though no identifying information will be used without your express permission.

My second piece of style advice is to start by addressing your letter “To The Public Order Emergency Commission”.
Then begin your submission with your main message. Your main message could be an answer to a question. I have a list of questions you might consider answering listed in the description below. Or instead of answering a question, your main message could be your experience as a participant in the protests or an observer of the protests.

You should keep your submission between 1 and 2 pages. If your submission is really long, it may not be read as carefully. You should focus your letter on the most important things you want the commission to know.
You can also include pictures, photographs and other supporting documents, if you think that will help.

Submissions can be made anonymously. If you want to submit anonymously, it makes sense to explain why you are making that choice. For example, some professionals who participated in the protests faced consequences from their employers. There was a hack of the information about donors to the freedom convoy, and their information, including names and addresses, posted online. I do understand why someone may want to make an anonymous submission, but it is a good idea to explain why you made that choice so the Commission understands too. If you are submitting anonymously, please note your country of residence. We all remember how some media outlets accused the Freedom Convoy of being “foreign funded” – something that turned out not to be true. So make sure you say where you live to prevent those kinds of false allegations about the people sending in public comments.

Lastly, you may submit by handwritten letter by mailing to the address I’ve linked to in the description below. Just please ensure your handwriting is legible.

That’s my style advice.
But I also have advice to give you on the substance of the submissions.
To make your public comment more impactful, focus on a main message. Your main message could be your experience as a participant in the protests or an observer of the protests.

Or you could answer one, or more of these questions:   Did the Emergencies Act make you afraid to attend other protests in the future? Including protests on topics unrelated to the Freedom Convoy? Were you afraid to donate to any charities unrelated to the Freedom Convoy after the government invoked the Emergencies Act? Were you concerned that your financial information could be shared with the government if you donated to other charities?

Were you personally involved in the Freedom Convoy protests, and if so, what was your experience like? How was your experience impacted by the use of the Emergencies Act? How do you feel about the protests and about the use of the Emergencies Act. If you were not involved in the protests, what were your views as an observer or person who was affected by the protests? What were your views of the police and government response? How did the police and government response make you feel? Are there any changes you would recommend in terms of the Emergencies Act to ensure it is not abused again in the future?

What is your view on whether the strict threshold set out in the Emergencies Act was met? Has the government provided a sufficient explanation about why existing law enforcement tools were insufficient?   It is also important to remember some important facts about the Emergencies Act and its invocation when sending in a public comment.
First, emergency powers have a dark and troubled history in Canada. The Emergencies Act was enacted to replace the War Measures Act, which was abused by previous federal governments. In response to the abuse of the War Measures Act, the Emergencies Act was carefully crafted to set out a demanding set of legally binding conditions that must be satisfied before it can be invoked. Those conditions were not met in this case.

The Emergencies Act is exceptional. It gives the federal cabinet authority to create new criminal offences and police powers, without recourse to Parliament, without advance notice, and without public debate. The law poses the risk of executive overreach which could have profound effects on Canadian democracy. Because the Emergencies Act vests enormous power in the federal cabinet, it should be interpreted strictly.

The Emergencies Act can only be invoked when there are no other legal tools available to deal with an ongoing situation that is urgent, temporary and national in scope. The February 2022 Freedom Convoy protests were cleared using ordinary police powers. In the view of many civil liberties organizations, including the Canadian Constitution Foundation, the invocation of the Emergencies Act was not absolutely necessary, as the Act requires.

After invoking the Emergencies Act, the federal government brought in Economic Measures and Emergency Measures. The Economic Measures enacted under the Emergencies Act required banks to disclose private banking information to police. This amounted to a warrantless and unreasonable search of private banking information. The Emergency Measures prohibited a very broad range of conduct, including generally acceptable and legal protest behaviour, breach of which was punishable by fines and imprisonment.

The federal government has not provided an explanation for its invocation of the Emergencies Act beyond a simple declaratory statement that a public order emergency existed. The federal government is fighting the disclosure of documents that provide a record of why this law was invoked. The federal government is not acting transparently, or explaining why this law was necessary. If the federal government refuses to provide an explanation, it is reasonable to draw the conclusion that no good explanation exists.

The Rouleau Commission hearings begin on September 19, so it is best to send a public comment before that date, although they will be accepted up until October 31.

If you want additional information and style guidance on how to send in a public comment, visit
Good luck. And I hope you take part in this inquiry.
Yours truly,
Christine Van Geyn

TORONTO: The Canadian Constitution Foundation is in the Federal Court today seeking the disclosure of information which goes to the heart of the government’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act on February, 14, 2022. 

The CCF will seek an order for the Attorney General to deliver unredacted documents, including minutes of the Incident Response Group and Cabinet meetings leading up to the declaration of the Emergencies Act

The government invoked cabinet confidence, and subsequently, national security privilege over many documents relevant to a judge’s determination of whether the government was justified in declaring a public order emergency. 

“The government’s failure to disclose wide swaths of evidence that go to the question of whether it was justified in invoking the Emergencies Act is an attempt to evade meaningful judicial review. Allowing these documents to remain secret would undermine the integrity of the proceedings in this historic matter if a litigant is pre-empted from arguing in court that the government acted unconstitutionally”, said Christine Van Geyn, the CCF’s Litigation Director. Members of the public may request a link for the hearing here:

Baber, Bernier among politicians joining James Topp on Freedom March

Baber, Bernier among politicians joining James Topp on Freedom March

By Cosmin Dzsurdzsa

Conservative leadership candidate Roman Baber and PPC leader Maxime Bernier have confirmed that they will be joining Canadian Armed Forces veteran James Topp on his nationwide march to Ottawa in protest of Covid-19 mandates. 

Baber tweeted on Monday that he would be meeting Topp on Jun. 15 before he reaches the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. 

On Tuesday, Bernier also said that he would be meeting Topp and walking with him on Jun. 30 for the last leg of his journey to Ottawa.

Topp’s 4,293 km march began at the tail end of February in Vancouver around the time Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act to quash peaceful Freedom Convoy protestors in Ottawa. 

“Everywhere I meet people, I hear their stories and the stories are amounting to an overwhelming amount of individuals suffering due to government overreach,” Topp told True North in March. “I am marching to carry these stories to Ottawa. I want to thank every person who has entrusted me with their story. It increases my resolve more and more each day.”

Legacy media outlets have refused to cover Topp’s historic journey and the CAF veteran has called the blackout a sign of how divisive the industry has become.  

“What we’re finding is pretty much a total corporate media blackout on this endeavour,” he said. “To that end, I would say, you know, folks who want to go out there and start banging the drum and shaming the CBC or CTV, because this is an amazing story of – 100 days in – a group of people who had never met each other before February 20.”

Before beginning the march, Topp was a civilian RCMP employee and a CAF member who lost both jobs because of the federal vaccine mandate. 

Topp has stated that he has spoken to at least 10 MPs from different parties and he hopes to secure a venue to hold a discussion about ending restrictions. Topp’s three priorities are repealing, reinstatement and restitution plus repair.
