(LifeSiteNews) – Statistics from Canada’s national statistical office, Statistics Canada, show a 260% increase in hate crimes targeting Catholics in Canada.  

On August 2, Statistics Canada published a report revealing that hate crimes across the country against Catholics in 2021 experienced the largest rise out of any group, a news story which was largely ignored by mainstream media 

“Undoubtedly, this increase can be attributed to attacks on Catholic churches in Canada in 2021 including the deliberate burning down of churches,” related the Catholic Civil Rights League of Canada (CCRLC). 

“Mainstream media has reported the overall 27 percent increase, but the most staggering of all increases, the 260% rise in anti-Catholic hate crimes, has been largely ignored,” it continued.  

The government issued report tracked all police-reported hate crimes from 2020 to 2021. According to the report, crimes targeting Muslims increased by 71%, while crimes targeting Jews increased by 47%. Attacks on “other religions” increased by 60%.

This time last year, Justin Trudeau and his media allies were at the forefront of falsely accusing Catholic institutions of having buried Indigenous children in mass graves at various residential schools across Canada.

There was and is no credible evidence to support these wild accusations, but many Canadians are still unaware of the facts.

SIGN to demand an apology from Justin Trudeau for promoting the "mass grave" smear

The anger generated by the media at home and abroad saw over twenty Canadian churches burned, and extensive damage done to many more, but the record has never been set straight in what amounts to a disinformation campaign. 

Terry Glavin at the National Post recently wrote a masterful piece that may go down in history as the definitive “debunking” of the assertions about the mass graves that never were.

Glavin points out that “nothing new was added to the public record” concerning the history of residential schools in Canada.

“The legacy of the schools had already been exhaustively explored in the testimony of hundreds of elders and a series of inquiries, public hearings, criminal cases, settlements and federal investigations going back decades. Most important of these efforts were the widely publicized undertakings of the 2008-2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), and the content of its voluminous findings,” Glavin wrote.

“…[N]ot a single mass grave was discovered in Canada last year,” he added.

“The several sites of unmarked graves that captured international headlines were either already-known cemeteries, or they remain sites of speculation even now, unverified as genuine grave sites.”

“Not a single child” accounted for during the extensively researched commission “was located in any of these places,” Glavin underscored.

“In none of these places were any human remains unearthed.”

SIGN and SHARE the petition calling on Justin Trudeau to set the record straight.

Even Trudeau's kneeling at what was reported upon as a just-discovered residential school burial ground was a lie - it was actually a well-known Catholic cemetery, but the media didn't let these details get in the way of reinforcing their narrative.

Trudeau also called on Pope Francis to come to Canada and apologize for what had happened, as outlets like Reuters, the New York Times and scores more told the world that “nearly 1000 bodies” had been found in two mass graves. 

Those online articles were quietly edited from "mass graves" to "unmarked graves", but we still have the Twitter posts from major outlets like Reuters to prove the staggering level of misinformation. 

SIGN: Justin Trudeau must tell Canadians the truth - there were no mass graves

According to an extensive investigation by Professor Emeritus Jacques Rouillard from the Université de Montréal: “The ‘discovery’ was first reported last May 27 (2021) by Tk’emlúps te secwépemc First Nation Chief Rosanne Casimir after an anthropologist, Sarah Beaulieu, used ground-penetrating radar in a search for the remains of children alleged by some to be buried there.”

“Her preliminary report is actually based on depressions and abnormalities in the soil of an apple orchard near the school – not on exhumed remains.”

Professor Rouillard opined that the unverifiable narrative of what could have amounted to child-murder has led to the false assertion of genocide, an assertion without any supporting evidence.

“By never pointing out that it is only a matter of speculation or potentiality, and that no remains have yet been found, governments and the media are simply granting credence to what is really a thesis: the thesis of the ‘disappearance’ of children from residential schools,” Rouillard wrote.  

“And all of this is based only on soil abnormalities that could easily be caused by root movements, as the anthropologist herself cautioned in the July 15 press conference.”  

The vast majority of Canadians have been misled by the media and Mr. Trudeau, believing the most incredible smears imaginable, leading to scores of attacks on churches around the country. 

It's time we heard the truth.

Please sign the petition today.

We are also cc'ing Canada's Catholic bishops on this petition - they must also demand the record be corrected, lest Canadians continue believing the mainstream media's disinformation.

While mainstream media outlets, such as CTV News and the National Post, reported the overall 27% increase of attacks, the increase of attacks against Catholics was largely ignored, as the total recorded hate crimes against Catholics rose from 43 in 2020, to 155 in 2021. 

“Our politicians must speak out against this alarming trend and law enforcement officials must vigorously investigate all incidents of hate crimes against Catholics and charge those responsible,” the CCRLC said. 

“We will follow through to make sure that law enforcement responds with vigor to this alarming trend in anti-Catholic violence,” it continued. 

The organization provides a database tracking attacks on Catholic churches across Canada, with attacks ranging from graffiti to arson.  

The increasing targeting of Catholics is at least partly attributed to the misrepresentation of the Catholic Church’s role in the residential schools for Indigenous children.  

Pro-abortion Prime Minister Justin Trudeau slammed the Catholic Church in light of the Kamloops “mass graves,” blaming the Church for abuses at residential schools, despite evidence that abuse was actually caused by the Canadian government.  

Furthermore, misleading reports of the alleged “mass graves” sparked a series of attacks against Catholic churches across Canada. More recent investigations from January 2022, found that despite the allegations of “physical genocide” on the part of the Church, no graves have actually been found. 

However, despite this, Canada Day 2021 saw a wave of anti-Catholic violence as 11 Christian churches in Calgary, the majority of them Catholic, were defaced. 

In June 2021, seven Catholic churches, five of them belonging specifically to First Nations communities, suffered arson, and five were burned to the ground.   

Last month, following his “apology tour” in Canada, Pope Francis apologized for an alleged ‘genocide’ of Indigenous peoples at residential schools, despite historical evidence proving this never occurred.
