———————————— o0o————————————- Label CBC as State-Funded Media on Twitter In recent days, NPR and BBC found “government-funded media” tags on their Twitter profiles. Social media users are wondering why the CBC hasn’t received this tag. Please sign the petition to urge Twitter to label the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) as “state-funded media”. SIGN THE PETITION      ——————————- o0o————————————-  

Bill 36 Action~ The crucial independent and industry-specific regulation of regulated professions will be eliminated under Bill 36. Instead of bureaucrats who will operate in the best interests of the government, not the public or professionals, governance is best handled by people with the necessary skills, such as those who directly provide health solutions. Another point of contention is the government’s decision to attack and reform private health care when it is obvious that hospital and community medicine are in danger of failing. You can rapidly confirm this teetering implosion by talking to emergency personnel or hospital professionals. Under their control, politicians have systematically destroyed healthcare. Join the Local Bill 36 Action Print your own copies of the two letters and the Bill 36 petition and drop them off at alternative Health Care clinics and Businesses. Check with Laureen at our rallies for a list of locations already petitioned to avoid duplication. TAKE  ACTION   Thank you Laureen, for initiating this ongoing project. And to Lynn, Shar, Darlene, Gloria, Carol and others for your hard work on this initiative. Join the team and get updates at our rallies on Sundays at our Penticton4Freedom rallies

We are truly living in crazy times. My friends at the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition have reported disturbing recommendations from the Special Joint Committee on Medical Assistance in Dying (AMAD) that were presented to the House of Commons on February 15, 2023.

AMAD recommended an amendment to the Criminal Code of Canada that would extend euthanasia to “mature” minors! Sign and tell Justice Minister David Lametti and the Government of Canada it is WRONG TO EUTHANIZE CHILDREN. Unfortunately, AMAD has more terrible recommendations. Another tabled recommendation stated that the Government of Canada makes child euthanasia accessible without parental consent. It goes even further, declaring that if the parents of a child, who wants euthanasia say “No!” but the child has “the requisite decision-making capacity,” the child’s request for euthanasia would override their parents’ consent and concern for their son or daughter. These amendments imply that parents and guardians may not be alerted in the decision to administer assisted suicide to their child, who is determined “capable of decision-making.” Please sign and stop this insidious agenda towards legally murdering innocent children. Where did these crazy and reckless recommendations come from?

They are based on an article titled “Medical Assistance in Dying at a paediatric hospital,” published in The Journal of Medical Ethics. The paper originated from a committee at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. This committee actively investigated how to best implement euthanasia for children without the knowledge or consent of their parents. With your help, we can take a stand and ensure child euthanasia remains illegal here in Canada. Sign now to STOP this madness and protect our most vulnerable, including the children at Sick Kids.
  The WHO is dangerously close to gaining new, legally binding powers that threaten our civil liberties and national sovereignty. The so-called “Pandemic Treaty” would centralize global governance, erode individual freedoms, and undermine effective health policies. We must act now to protect our rights and personal autonomy! Sign the petition today and urge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to oppose this dangerous treaty before it’s too late! SIGN THE PETITION!   ——————————- o0o————————————-
WORTH A LOOK   Shawn Buckley’s Opening Statement – Day 3 A powerful opening statement from the lead council for the NCI on day 3 in Toronto. Buckley explains that giving up personal responsibility for our actions is how we got to where we are today.

Freedom Events in Penticton This Week & Going Forward


Dear Penticton4Freedomites,

The worldwide freedom movement has been experiencing a lull in attendance because of the lifting of mask mandates and some of the international parliamentary and judicial decisions to declare the pandemic over, Canada being the exception. So, we like many other freedom organizations across the country are taking advantage of this fact to develop stronger structures, clearer strategic objectives, and better methods for collaboration.

To that end, we’ve formed a volunteer five-person Member Support Team, who were introduced at our April 24 rally, and we are in the process of improving communications with you and the outside world through our fledgling website at Check out our events calendar there as frequently as you wish. We will be posting appropriate events as we hear of them, so you don’t have to wait for the next email to find out.

This week’s Round-Up email looks a bit skinny for images because we have had complaints about the size of the graphics in a standard email format. While they may look pretty, they take up a lot of space in your inbox and frequently do not display properly on certain email sites. So, we will be using our website to display whatever images we’ve been sent for the events we list, and you can see them by clicking on the specific event of interest in our online calendar.

Watch for further improvements as we go along. These things require a lot of TLC, and we are grateful to those volunteers and sponsors who have stepped up to make it all happen. Meanwhile…

  Don’t miss these important dates! And Remember to bring two friends with you!    PENTICTON EVENTS & INITIATIVES   Thank you, Vlado Z. for the photos of Penticton on April 24th       We’ll post Marcel’s video as soon as we have the link.   ——————- o0o ——————-  image.png

National Citizen’s Conference: Victoria, BC / May 28, 29

Dear Freedom Family, (a message from Ted Kuntz, President, Vaccine Choice Canada)

In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, a National Citizen’s Conference will be held in Victoria, BC to assemble a coalition of leaders, including the Honourable Brian Peckford, to discuss the future of democracy in Canada. This gathering to Reclaim Canada will take place from May 28th to May 29th and will be jointly hosted by We Unify Canada, Taking Back Our Freedoms, Vaccine Choice Canada, Freedom Rising and many others.

The conference will focus on peaceful action as well as the principles that embody fundamental individual liberties. Our goal is to bring together Canadians from across the country to explore a national strategy to advance our democracy and repair the damage that stems from political and societal dissonance.  We see this as a historic event as Canadians endeavour to reclaim our democracy, our rights and freedoms, and our country. We welcome your ideas and contributions to rectifying the current situation in Canada and globally.

More information about this event is available at:


This week’s call to action – seeking evidence of police violence
