ONTARIO, Canada, April 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — An Ontario politician is calling for Ontarians to disobey Premier Doug Ford’s province-wide stay-at-home order announced today that will close non-essential retail stores, continue to restrict church attendance, and ultimately deny Canadians their rights and freedoms as guaranteed by the Charter, especially freedom of religion and peaceful assembly.

“This is a war on freedoms,” Randy Hillier, an independent Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP), told LifeSiteNews in a telephone interview.

“This is not about using bullets but about using shame and scorn and fear — they’re bombarding people with fear and trying to have people cower. They want people to throw away their freedoms, throw away the things that are important to them, throw away family, throw away faith, throw away and discard all the essential components of human dignity and they want to isolate and confine people,” he said.

The Ford government announced a province-wide stay-at-home order today, similar to what was enacted in January, in a bid to stem what the government is calling the third wave of COVID-19. The order, which will take effect on Thursday, April 8 at 12:01 in the morning, comes as excess deaths due to indirect consequences of the pandemic, such as drug overdoses and missed medical treatments, continue to skyrocket.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Ontario over a year ago, there have been only 370,817 confirmed cases in a population of just over 14 million, meaning that only 2.6 percent of the province’s entire population has been confirmed to be infected with the virus, according to today’s data provided by Public Health Ontario. The vast majority of those confirmed cases (90.6 percent) has recovered. There have been 7,475 COVID-related deaths in the past 14 months. The majority of the province’s COVID-related deaths have been among elderly residents of long-term care homes. SUBSCRIBE to LifeSite’s daily headlines U.S. Canada World Catholic

Ford’s move comes in the wake of medical officers from the province’s three largest public health units demanding in an open letter released on Sunday a province-wide shutdown and stay-at-home order. The letter was a critical response to the Ford government having pulled what it called the “emergency brake” on Holy Saturday that moved the province into the “grey” zone that effectively shuttered restaurants, gyms, and allowed churches to operate at only 15 percent capacity during the most sacred time of the year when Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus.

Ivana Yelich, Ford’s Director of Media Relations, told LifeSiteNews that the new measures will continue to allow churches to operate at 15 percent capacity. There are “no changes to places of worship,” she said.

The Stay-at-Home order requires “everyone to remain at home except for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services (including getting vaccinated), for outdoor exercise, or for work that cannot be done remotely,” a news release today from the Ontario government stated. People are also allowed to attend a religious gathering, such as for a worship service or for a funeral or wedding.

While numerous businesses will be forced to close, garden centers and schools will be permitted to stay open.

Ford said during his announcement today that the situation in the province is “getting worse.”

“With these additional measures, we will limit mobility, limit the spread, keep people safe, and allow more time to deliver vaccines. And, be assured, vaccines remain our best hope to beat this virus.”

Hillier told LifeSiteNews that the most effective action Ontarians, alarmed at the erosion of their rights and freedoms, can make right now is to “disobey every unjust, unconstitutional order.”

“Take your mask off, they’re ineffective, they do nothing. The evidence demonstrates clearly they have no impact on the spread of the virus,” he said.

“Do not buy into the fear that this government is peddling and all governments are peddling. Open up your business, face some of the short-term bruises. Defend your freedom to worship, your freedom to speak, your freedom to earn a living, your freedom to visit with family — these are not the jurisdiction of governments, but the jurisdictions of free people,” he added.

Hillier said that big government along with public health is “lying” to people when using people’s health and safety as a justification for lockdowns.

“The data and the evidence clearly demonstrate that this [virus] is not a threat to most people. We know that there is a small demographic who are susceptible and who are at great risk. Right now, over 96 percent of all fatalities are seniors with significant preexisting illnesses who are very frail and who are close to death’s door to begin with. You know, the average age of fatalities is 84, greater than our average life expectancy,” he said.

Stats Canada released a report last month detailing the negative social and economic impacts of “lockdowns” and “restrictions” put in place by government authorities in an attempt to keep people safe from the virus.

Three Canadian doctors, heart surgeon Dr. Dennis L. Modry, Ontario’s former chief medical officer of health Dr. Richard Schabas, and pathology and virology specialist Dr. Roger Hodkinson, have publicly urged Canadian policymakers against using lockdowns because of the devastation they cause.

In February, a group of both federal and provincial politicians banded together to form the non-partisan “End the Lockdowns National Caucus” with the sole goal of ending lockdowns. “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,” a position statement of the group reads.

The lockdowns have negatively affected all segments of society, including the youngest.

The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) reported in January how it’s seeing a “disturbing trend” of babies coming to the hospital with “fractures and head trauma” in the wake of COVID-related lockdowns across Ontario and Quebec. “In my 16 years at CHEO, I have never seen this many infants with serious maltreatment injuries,” said Dr. Michelle Ward, pediatrician and Medical Director for Child and Youth Protection at CHEO, in a Jan. 29 press release.

Other doctors and health professionals from all over the world have also banded together in opposition to lockdowns to stop the spread of COVID.

The Great Barrington Declaration, signed by some 56,000 medical practitioners and medical and public health scientists, raises “grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies.”

The signers call upon policymakers to allow those who are less vulnerable to COVID-19 to be “allowed to resume life as normal.”

“Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short- and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health — leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice,” the declaration states.

Hillier told LifeSiteNews that citizens must arm themselves with knowledge to effectively resist an overreaching government. 

“What I have to say to people is to arm yourself with knowledge, arm yourself with evidence and data, and shield yourself from the fear-mongering,” he said. 

“And I would also say that you must never displace your faith in God with that of government,” he added. 

Hillier said that governments are abusing power that is meant to serve the people, not strip them of their rights and freedoms.

“We know government must be constrained, that there are checks and balances in our system to ensure governments don’t abuse the power. We have forgotten and we have discarded our checks and balances on government, and now they are abusing power.”

Huge End The Lockdown Rally in Brantford & A Bit Of State Vengeance Against a Freedom Loving Pastor

Huge End The Lockdown Rally in Brantford & A Bit Of State Vengeance Against a Freedom Loving Pastor

Randy Hillier the outspoken, anti-lockdown Ontario MPP spoke an unveiled a huge END THE LOOCDOWN billboard in Brantford, Ontario, April 3.

Easter Weekend gift from our Christian-hating gov’t to a brave pastor. Tweet from Pastor Henry Hildebrandt After the #nomorelockdowns rally, I was followed for 3 KMs by the @BrantfordPolice, pulled over & ticketed at a 403 offramp by 4 cruisers, 3 motorcycles & 10 officers.

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.

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.”

Look at the Questions Doug Ford Is Asking

Look at the Questions Doug Ford Is Asking

by John Adams/Randy Hillier MPP, NoMoreLockdowns – February 3, 2021 https://www.nomorelockdowns.ca/questions

Campaign Research, Doug Ford’s chief pollsters, are asking the people of Ontario how they feel about present and possible new restrictions in the fight against COVID-19.

This is terrifying.

Suspending civil rights and liberties? Vehicle and pedestrian checkpoints? Police removing people from their homes? Jailing and fining those who hold dissenting opinions?

Did we suddenly wake up in North Korea?

Doug Ford, the Premier of Ontario, CANADA, is asking for approval to remove our Charter Rights.

Thanks to the courageous whistleblower who shared these screenshots with No More Lockdowns Canada and all the major media outlets in Ontario on Friday, it appears Anthony Furey was the only one to talk about it. (https://torontosun.com/news/national/furey-pandemic-civil-liberties-abuses-most-popular-among-liberal-voters-poll-shows)

These questions our government is asking are very serious and very concerning; it is abhorrent to say the least. How could we even consider these actions in our free country? It is time to speak out.

If you live outside my riding with a PC MPP, send them these screenshots, if you are a constituent, consider reaching out to the Premier and ask:

“Why is your government contemplating removing my rights and liberties? Why is your government talking about forcefully removing citizens from their home and setting up Soviet-style check points?”.

Ask via email, phone, letter, and social media. If you share on social media be sure to share with me and the press. You can find your Member of Provincial Parliament and their contact information here: https://www.ola.org/en/members

This should NEVER be acceptable, the public’s hesitancy for dissent on the current restrictions is what lets our elected officials think that this would be ok, that they can get away with this. Let them know they are wrong. Speak out, ask questions, and help spread the word.

These were shared to me from NoMoreLockdowns.ca, be sure to sign their petition and request a lawn sign.   Randy Hillier

The Western Standard’s Ernest Skinner spoke with Hiller about his opposition to lockdowns, mandatory-masking, and why he is putting his neck on the line to fight them.

Rogue Ontario MPP Randy Hillier doesn’t mince words. He never has. The Tory-turned-independent from the notoriously populist-conservative Ottawa Valley has always been on the outside looking in, even when he was on the inside of the PC Caucus. In November 2020 he was charged for leading an anti-lockdown protest at the Ontario Legislature.

The Western Standards Ernest Skinner spoke with Hiller about his opposition to lockdowns, mandatory-masking, and why he is putting his neck on the line to fight them.

1.  Who is Randy Hillier, the MPP?

Well, I’m an independent member the legislature and the provincial Parliament for Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston. I’ve been in elected office since 2007. My political views don’t always get met with enthusiasm as I am a bit of a maverick you could say. Besides that, I’m a dad, a husband, a father of four kids, and have 6 grandkids.”

2. Would you consider yourself an outlaw or bohemian in the realms of your political views at times?

“Well, listen, I’m a very independent-minded person, and I speak my mind, regardless of what others may or may not think, and that often has me swimming against the currents of political correctness and accepted dogma. I’ve often been in the penalty box, but I have an absolute foundational view that to be in elected office, one must be truthful and honest at all times, regardless of the consequences.”

3. We all know that you’re against the lockdowns. Can you comment on your findings regarding deaths and collateral damage as a direct result of them?

“Yes, the Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms released a report today (December 3) that lays out an exceptionally strong case of the evidence that the lockdowns and this social experiment that we have undertaken as a result of COVID[-19] have led to substantial and significant harm, injury and fatality for those who were never at risk of COVID. We are seeing at least a 50 per cent increase in deaths in these other areas such as the suicides, addiction, overdoses, etc.”

4. How would you assess Chief Health Medical Officer Dr. Theresa Tam’s handling of COVID-19 and her advice to Canadians since March?

“Professionally, I’d have to do use some diplomatic language, and just call her incompetent. This is the same person who suggested that masks could not stop the spread of COVID at the height of the threat, and then in July thought they were the most wonderful thing. She also said you should wear them when you are having sex, and one of the ways we can reduce the spread is by engaging in masturbation instead of intimate relations.”

5. What are your thoughts on Doug Ford and how he has used his powers since the start of the pandemic?

“He should be singled out for derision. He came into office with a mandate of open economy, that Ontario is open for business, that he is for the little guy. He’s also the one we’ve seen throughout this, telling people that it was too dangerous to go to the cottage; we find he’s going to his cottage. He tells people it’s unsafe to have a wedding, and he’s going to weddings. It’s been an endless contradiction. He told us we have to have a broad-based provincial approach to this and then of course that changed to a regional approach. He’s been flying off-thecuff for nine months and everybody in Ontario has been harmed by this ineptness.”

6. Why do you think that “experts” such as Dr. Tam, Dr. Fauci, and others keep staying on the same path even when they reverse course and contradict themselves? Can you also talk a bit about the wearing of masks.

“Well, I see them as bureaucrats; they’re not engaged in practising medicine even though at some point they may have had a medical degree. We all know that if you are going to wear a mask the benefits have to outweigh the consequences. We know very clearly now that the asymptomatic spread is not an issue. If you are going to contract the virus it’s going to be because you are in a confined space with proximity to infected people for a prolonged period of time. Many studies tell us that” 

7. Have you personally spoken with experts in the field of vaccines and viruses that disagree with the lockdown and mandatory-mask approach?

“Today, [December 3] I’ll be speaking with Dr. Roger Hodkinson who has been slammed by big tech and social media for speaking out at an Edmonton city council meeting. I’ve spoken with Dr. Matt Straus, Dr. Kulvinder Kaur, Dr. Stephen Malthouse and these are credible doctors. Tens of thousands across the world have signed on to the Great Barrington Declaration,stating unequivocally that this social experiment of masking and lockdowns in isolation and confinement is not a solution. Another thing is social media has been engaged in actively suppressing dissenting views, and we’ve also seen it from our mainstream media CTV, CBC, anybody who has a dissenting opinion – is disregarded as some sort of conspiracy theorist. We had Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, the Chief Medical Officer of Health in Montreal state it’s like a bad flu season, and even our own Minister of Long Term Care stated categorically that it was like a bad flu season; but both the MSM and our social media have been active in suppressing that information and knowledge to the general public.”

8. Regarding your colleagues in the legislature; are there others that you know of that agree with your thoughts and views on COVID-19?

“A great many. These are people that I know in the NDP, the Liberal Party, the CP, who all share my views and my sentiments or a great many of them. They are fearful of speaking out. They’re fearful of being removed from their caucus, being kicked out of their parties, fearful of losing the added perks and benefits of being a parliamentary assistant or a minister.”

9. What would be your overall personal assessment of what people in general are feeling, and the ramifications for the ones in charge of steering the ship?

“People are living in fear, because they have not been exposed to alternative views and dissenting opinions. They are not aware of the facts and evidence that show beyond a reasonable doubt that this situation is exaggerated. At the end of the day – as more and more of these exaggerations are dispelled – people will come to realize that we made some very horrible and tragic decisions during COVID[-19] and there is going to be a price to pay for those officials who failed to do their jobs”

10. What advice would you give to people that are confused by the contradictions and questionable advice that our leaders are giving us? 

“There’s an individual whose name is Dr. Michael Yeadon. He’s a former chief scientist for Pfizer. He has put out a video which is about  30 minutes long. It is an astonishing, all-encompassing video that covers things such as masks. It covers clearly why the tests that we’re doing are creating so many false-positives and that we ought not to be basing our public policies on a test that is faulty, and faulty to such a high degree. He would be a good one to go to for people that have very limited time to investigate on their own.”

Cornwall March for Freedom, Saturday, November 21. Noon. Eastern Ontario Health Unit, 1000 Pitt St.

This Saturday, November 21st 2020, join Pastor Henry Hildebrandt and me, along with other freedom-oriented Canadians in Cornwall for a March for Freedom. Once again I will be joining a group of fellow freedom-loving Canadians to test Premier Ford’s unjust COVID laws.

As Ford and many Premiers across the country begin threatening further lockdowns, it becomes more important for peaceful civil disobedience like this March for Freedom. I hope you will join us at the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, 1000 Pitt St in Cornwall at Noon. It will be a peaceful, family friendly march to show our public opposition against lockdowns and restrictions that are destroying families, communities, healthcare, and local businesses.

If you cannot attend, make your voice heard by supporting NoMoreLockdowns.org, they have been doing great work distributing lawn signs against lockdowns all across the province. Contact them to get a sign of your own or volunteer to help them out.

I hope you will come out, speak up, and be heard. Your voice goes a long way in preventing further lockdowns and returning to normal. See you there!
