In case you missed events this past week …

The most exciting news was the sold-out 3 showtimes of the movie Sound of Freedom at the Penticton Landmark Theatre. It was truly an emotional moment for me to see the turnout. According to the manager at the theatre, there has only been one other film in the past few years that had a sell-out crowd in its initial release, and that was a Mario movie. He’s never seen a serious film like this fill the theatre like this. MORE GOOD NEWS: Landmark Theatre in Penticton and in several theatres in Kelowna and West Kelowna, will be running several showtimes a day from tomorrow, Saturday, July 7, through next Tuesday, July 11. Based on a true story, exposing the child slave trade and hope about what one person can do to help make things right again.

At Sunday’s Penticton4Freedom event, Chris Pequin showed up and was invited to take the mic for a few minutes. He is vying to become the PC Party of Canada candidate in the next federal election, opposing Richard Cannings, and he congratulated us for continuing to hold our weekly events, even though mandates are lifted for now. (Like I always say, “Surprise speakers show up at many of our rallies. Miss a week. Miss a lot.”

Also a reminder that Granfondo is on this weekend with lots of road closures and the main event is at Lakeshore and Martin Street. image.png

This should not interfere with our regular Sunday Freedom Event,

but it is a reminder to arrive early to find parking within a short walk of Lakawanna Park.

Why? Because, this Sunday, we’ll have another last minute speaker you will surely want to hear.

Wayne has arranged for John Rustad to join us for some Q&A. For those of you who don’t know John, he was thrown out of the BC Liberal (United) Party for his views, went Independent, and then was recruited to resurrect the BC Conservative Party.

Be Ready with your tough questions.

Meanwhile, on the subject of politics, check out the Independent BC initiative here.

It’s never too early to start holding your local MLAs, MPS and wanna-be candidates accountable.

Penticton Landmark Theaters

July 7th – July 11th 3 times per day.



Based on a true story, Sound of Freedom immerses you in the heroic actions of one man that shines a light on even the darkest of places. At the heart of this powerful film is a hero, a federal agent, who embarks on a dangerous mission to save a young boy’s captive sister after rescuing him from ruthless child traffickers. Driven by compassion and determination, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, risking his life to free her from a fate worse than death.

Check out the trailer and other communities showings HERE .

International Truth Day – July 15, 2023


Saturday, July 15th Once again we will be hosting International Truth Day here at the One Eyed Budgie/Truth Centre.

As many of you on this mailing list are well outside of our geographical area and likely not able to attend, I would encourage you all to host your own Truth Day gathering no matter how small it may be… it is the intent and energy that will carry across the land.

For those able to attend it will be as the previous gatherings:

– potluck event beginning in mid-afternoon and going until the crowd winds down,

– bring lawn chairs for yourselves,

– byob if required.

Prizes again for the oldest, youngest, furthest travelled, and the winners of the horseshoe tournament.

We hope you can make it and have safe travels.

In Love & Light,

Dave & Susan

The Truth Centre

2649 Highway 3,

Keremeos, B.C.

——————————- o0o————————————-   ACTIONS OF THE WEEK   Bill C-47 Is Now Law   On June 22nd, 2023 the government passed Bill C-47 which will have far reaching effects on all natural health products and practitioners in Canada. The sections of the bill pertaining to natural health products (sections 500-504) were well hidden inside a lengthy budget bill and as a result, many Canadians were not aware of them. Now that the bill has passed, it is urgent that we take action to protect our access to natural health products.  We must demand that our MPs repeal sections 500 to 504 from Bill C-47.   Understanding the consequences of sections 500-504 of Bill C-47 is critical for any Canadian who uses natural health products, seeks services from natural health practitioners, and values their freedom to care for their body in whatever way they choose. The Natural Health Products Protection Association ( has updated Shawn Buckley’s latest Discussion Paper to reflect Bill C-47 passing into law. To see a 5-minute video, June 23rd, on Bill C-47 and Shawn’s ‘Call to Repeal’ Watch Here. Actions You Can Take Today: 1. Call your MP and request an in-person meeting to discuss the effects of Bill C-47 on natural health products.  
2. Write a letter to your MP to share your concerns about Bill C-47 and how it will impact your access to natural health products and practitioners (to see guidelines for writing your letter, please watch for campaign updates at 3. Please subscribe to the Natural Health Products Protection Association ( to receive their updates and action items.  We will be sending out further action items and updates as they become available. READ & DOWNLOAD DISCUSSION PAPER And view the Coles Notes of the paper here.   Remember – at our rallies, and at all Natural Food and Supplement Stores, are SOS postcards (Save Our Supplements) to send to your MP/Senator insisting on repealing clauses 500 to 504, as above. ——————————- o0o————————————-   This is Canada Campaign The NCI has developed a flyer to be distributed to our families, friends and neighbours inviting them to watch three testimonies at random from the National Citizens Inquiry.

Please read… From the website, from the publishers: “I truly believe Druthers is the single most potent tool we have for defending our freedoms in Canada and getting more people to join us, so please, help this fundraiser along. It’s important that we keep the information flowing to our fellow Canadians.” And I agree. etransfers: If you prefer to make a cash donation, come to one of our P4F rallies and we will be happy to include your donation in our next e-transfer. A Big Thank You to last month’s contributors! Pentiction4Freedom supporters have dug deep to help make sure Druthers is available everywhere in Canada. In May, we were able to e-transfer $420 to Druthers and it resulted in an extra 5,000 copies shipped to the Okanagan for distribution. Way to go, Penticton! We were able to distribute an extra 2 bundles of that ourselves. Donations were down in June, though, perhaps because we haven’t kept it front of mind.  $110 was collected at rallies and e-transferred to Druthers for the July issue (for which we are grateful). Let’s keep this in mind this coming month. Remember – there is always a separate Druthers donation box at every rally. Special thanks go out to Steve …who is now getting business owners to chip in a few dollars every month when he drops off their supply of the latest editions.   Read The June Issue Online and the July issue will be available at our Sunday Rally Pick up print copies at our Penticton4Freedom rallies Covering news and information that mainstream media won’t. DRUTHERS was able to print an extra 5,000 copies for the Okanagan because of our donations to the June edition. Thank you for being an everyday hero by donating, reading, sharing and distributing Druthers copies in your area. ML Read DRUTHERS
