OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) – Canada’s Parliament will vote today either to end or to keep COVID restrictions in the nation.  

The interim leader of the Loyal Opposition, the Conservative Party of Canada’s Candice Bergen, has demanded that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau immediately release a plan to end COVID mandates. She urged all Members of Parliament (MPs) to vote this afternoon in favor of her motion to abolish all the COVID mandates.

“On Friday, February 11, Justin Trudeau called a news conference, from which no news emerged,” Bergen wrote last Friday.   

“Trudeau didn’t commit to a plan to actually do anything to fix the national protest movement that he and his government have provoked,” she continued.  

“In fact, he doubled down, saying he will maintain vaccine mandates for federal public servants and travel, without offering any scientific reasons. The Conservative Party continues to call on the government to release a concrete plan on when mandates will be rolled back.” 

Bergen added, “This Monday, February 14, Members of Parliament will be given the opportunity to support a Conservative motion calling for a concrete plan that gives Canadians a roadmap out of COVID-19 restrictions. We urge all MPs to vote in favour of our motion. Those who choose not to will need to explain to their constituents why.”  

The text of the motion reads, “That, given that provinces are lifting COVID-19 restrictions and that Dr. Theresa Tam has said that all existing public health measures need to be ‘re-evaluated’ so that we can ‘get back to some normalcy’, the House calls on the government to table a plan for the lifting of all federal mandates and restrictions, and to table that plan by February 28, 2022.”

GoFundMe has been called on the carpet by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for what he described in a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as possible engagement in potentially unfair or deceptive acts or practices.

After the BigTech crowdfunding giant summarily and seemingly arbitrarily shut down the page for the Canadian Freedom Convoy just as donations reached $10 million, Sen. Cruz sent the letter to FTC Chairwoman Lina Khan asking for the federal agency to investigate.

Please SIGN, SHARE and SUPPORT this petition to the FTC to investigate GoFundMe for potential "unfair or deceptive acts or practices."

One of the main focuses of his letter is fairness.

How can GoFundMe shut down fundraising for an entirely peaceful protest by Canadian Truckers, while, to cite just one example, having allowed the fundraiser for the "Capitol Hill Occupied Protest" in Seattle during the BLM/Antifa riots in the summer of 2020 to continue?

All freedom-loving people should be rightly suspicious that GoFundMe seems to apply one standard to fundraising for liberal causes, and another, far more stringent standard for conservative causes, which can effectively stop conservatives from expressing their support of a cause financially.

If this is true, it is unfair - and, undemocratic - and needs to be stopped immediately. And, that's why GoFundMe must be investigated now!

Please SIGN, SHARE and SUPPORT this petition to the FTC to investigate GoFundMe for potential "unfair or deceptive acts or practices."

GoFundMe says that their terms and conditions were violated because of false claims in the media that the Canadian Freedom Convoy protests had turned violent.

But, this is simply untrue, as there has been absolutely no riotous behavior (this is Canada after all, eh).

Clearly, Ottawa is not Seattle. Ottawa is not Portland.

In fact, the Ottawa police department said that there had been only 7 arrests, for minor violations, among throngs of tens of thousands - and, organizers of the Truckers Freedom Convoy have stated that their people had nothing to do with those arrests.

Please SIGN, SHARE and SUPPORT this petition to the FTC to investigate GoFundMe for potential "unfair or deceptive acts or practices."

While conservatives hate the idea of more government regulation, they hate the idea of losing their right to protest in support of freedom even more.

Smug BigTech companies should not be allowed to kill the momentum of peaceful causes they (or, their peers in Silicon Valley or Washington, DC) don't like.

Simply put, conservative causes on the GoFundMe platform must be held to exactly the same standard as liberal causes. If they are not, then the government must intervene to regulate GoFundMe, or shut them down.

Thank you SIGNING and SHARING this petition to the FTC to investigate GoFundMe for potential "unfair or deceptive acts or practices."

Nearly all Conservative MPs are expected to vote for the motion. 

It is unsure how other parties will vote; however, at least two Liberal Party MPs have broken ranks over Trudeau’s handling of the trucker convoy, and a third has called for an end to mandates, as well. 

Bergen said that Trudeau needs to “go further and take action” to remove all COVID measures, which is what the freedom convoy organizers are demanding.   

“The sooner, the better,” she declared 

Bergen, who became interim leader of the CPC after Erin O’Toole was voted out as leader in late January, has subsequently been a supporter of ending COVID mandates.  

She has also shown support for the freedom trucker convoy who have been in Ottawa for over two weeks. The truckers say they will not leave until all COVID mandates are lifted.  

CPC MP Pierre Poilievre, who is running to be the next party leader, also wrote a letter last week demanding that Trudeau end all COVID measures. He told the prime minister, through an open letter, that his power trip is over.”  

Last week as well, Poilievre launched a petition which called for all COVID restrictions to be removed.   

Tens of thousands of Canadians from coast to coast have gathered in Ottawa as part of the “Freedom Convoy 2022” to protest against COVID mandates. Protesters have now been there for over two weeks.  

Since that time, Trudeau has denounced the Freedom Convoy and refused to meet with its members. 

Last Friday, the prime minister threatened “real consequences with respect to their [truckers’] licenses to their jobs.” 

During a session in Parliament last week, Trudeau dismissed the Freedom Convoy and its supporters as “a few people shouting and waving swastikas.” 

Today, rumors are swirling that Trudeau will invoke the never used Emergencies Act, to suppress the trucker protesters both in Ottawa and at the blockades at multiple, crucial U.S.-Canada border crossings.  

The last time similar legalization was enacted was in 1970 when Justin Trudeau’s father Pierre Elliott Trudeau, the prime minister at that time, invoked the War Measures Act in response to political violence in the province of Quebec.  The War Measures Act was repealed in 1988.
