OTTAWA, February 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Canadian government has announced it is awarding $15 million worth of grants to 76 community groups to be spent on various LGBT interests in the name of “equality.”
CTV News reports that Minister of Diversity, Inclusion, & Youth Bardish Chagger and Minister for Women & Gender Equality Maryam Monsef announced Thursday the finalized list of recipients for the LGBTQ2 Community Capacity Fund.
“As we continue our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, we must also work to build up and support strength and resiliency, wherever we can,” Chagger said. “It is crucial that organizations serving LGBTQ individuals from coast to coast to coast are supported with the means to do their important and life-saving work.”
Among the spending is $1.5 million across Atlantic Canada to “create a network of service providers” and “develop culturally-relevant resources for underrepresented queer youth”; almost $300,000 to staff the so-called Two-Spirit Alliance (“two-spirit” refers to some indigenous populations’ conception of a third gender); $3.6 million for 19 groups in Quebec to “better understand the challenges of marginalized LGBTQ families, and specific needs of the province’s trans communities”; and millions more across the country for various LGBT youth, community, health, rehab, and retirement centers.
These latest grants, which follow the Canadian government subsidizing abortion groups while defunding Christian organizations, further emphasize the priorities of the Trudeau government. If Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has his way, left-wing favoritism will eventually give way to mandatory conformity; Truedeau’s government is reportedly working on a legislative proposal to ban social media content the government deems “hateful,” as well as the development of a military communications organization dedicated to “using defence activities to influence the attitudes, beliefs and behaviours of audiences.”
Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has introduced a bill which threatens to seize control of online media content in Canada, putting liberty and freedom at risk.
But, the Trudeau Liberals have no right to impose their party's ideology on the Canadian internet!
Please SIGN this petition which tells the Trudeau Liberals, as well as the opposition, to leave the internet as a free speech zone!
Bill C-10 is causing alarm bells to sound with conservative and Christians, who are concerned that it is the first step towards the destruction of independent online media in Canada.
The Bill would require more "diversity and inclusion" content, reflecting the experience of "Canadians from racialized communities and Canadians of diverse ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and ages."
And, Bill C-10 would also give power to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to "assign penalties for non-compliance."
With this frightening new power, Bill C-10 is a real threat to the freedom of speech of conservatives and Christians in Canada who engage with the entire world about their issues on the internet.
Jay Cameron, a lawyer for the Canada-based Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms told LifeSite:
"It is clear from recent statements by the PM and the Heritage Minister that the federal government wants to increase control and penalties for speech and content that is not approved of by the ideologues in the Liberal Party. Unsurprisingly, the purpose of Bill C-10 is not to increase freedom of ‘thought, belief, opinion, and expression’ (section 2(b) of the Charter) but to further restrict it.".
Simply put: the chilling effect that this Bill could have on freedom of speech rights is incalculable.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which tells Trudeau Liberals to stop their attempt to impose their party's ideology on the Canadian internet.
Tell them to scrap Bill C-10 and leave the internet as an independent forum where ideas, beliefs and other ventures can be discussed without government regulation or censorship.
And, tell them that Canadian adults are mature enough to make up their own minds about sensitive topics without government interference.
After you have signed the petition, please consider politely contacting the Minister for Canadian Heritage, the Shadow Minister for Industry and Economic Development, and the Prime Minister's office, to tell them about your dismay regarding Bill C-10. CONTACT DETAILS BELOW.
