(LifeSiteNews) – Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leadership candidate Leslyn Lewis told Jordan Peterson that Justin Trudeau is “one of the big champions” of the Great Reset theory in an interview where the two touched on a wide range of topics that affect Canadian and international politics.
Lewis’ Christian values, her unique background in environmental studies, her perspective on lockdowns, and her commitment to conservative principles were all discussed in the interview that lasted almost two hours and was filled with passionate rhetoric from both participants.
Traditional Christian upbringing
At the outset, Peterson asked Lewis about her upbringing and how she came to be an outspoken Christian and conservative in Canadian politics.
Lewis said she “grew up in an ultra, ultra conservative family, religious wise, economically and fiscally … a traditional immigrant family.”
Paradoxically, she said her upbringing was conservative in values yet “politically liberal.”
“I didn’t even think about politics at all,” she said. And when it was time to move on to higher education, she said she “just wanted to get an education.”
Her activity in her Church community led her to consider “social dilemmas” that she witnessed while doing “prison ministry” and “working with at-risk youth.”
She began to consider politics more deeply and joined the Reform Party, which was at the time the dominant conservative party in Canada. Eventually, the party merged with the Progressive Conservative Party and was led by former Reform Party member and Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
She said that the traditional Canadian values of the Reform Party matched her thinking.
Doesn’t fit the stereotype
Lewis told Peterson that she doesn’t fit the stereotype for a typical conservative politician in the eyes of the mainstream media. Lewis’ ancestry is Jamaican, and she said that in the political climate today it is common to make “your identity your master status.” She added that even though she won the popular vote in the 2020 CPC leadership race, thus proving her popularity among voters, she “will not get media coverage and attention because [she doesn’t] fit their narrative.”
“Their narrative is that the Conservative Party is a white racist party,” she said. She said that in 2020 Kamala Harris, a non-Canadian, “was featured over 8,800 times more” than Lewis in Canadian news, “even though she was not running in our country.”
Peterson called the radio silence on Lewis by Canadian legacy media “perverse.”
“You’re objecting on philosophical grounds … that you should be categorized by … your race and your sex, and yet the left insists that that’s the cardinal distinction between people, and then insists that people like you should be brought to the forefront,” Peterson said.
He then added he believed it was disingenuous that Lewis had the “self-evident characteristics that the left is trumpeting,” but she was “persona non grata” because of her pro-Christian and conservative views.
Not a typical environmentalist
Lewis and Peterson spoke at length about conservation and the environment. Lewis was educated at a master’s level In Environmental Studies and told Peterson that when she was studying in the 1990s climate change was “politicized.
Lewis had harsh words to say for the contemporary environmentalist movement. “We’ve taken climate change,” she said, “we’ve politicized it, we’ve made it a-scientific, and we’ve used it as a revenue generating tool to conjure up fear, and that wasn’t something that I found in my studies.”
She said that the focus of her studies relating to the environment focused more on sustainability and solution-oriented approaches to conservation and improving quality of life.
Lewis also said that “Big Pharma” was looked at as something to be skeptical of in her studies.
“We also learned we also learned the role of big pharma and that that could be all consuming,” she said.
She blasted the idea that electric vehicles were an environmental solution. Expressing her belief that it is hypocritical that governments focus solely on fossil-fuel machines and infrastructure, she said, “But let’s take an electric car. They do not start from in a cobalt mine in Africa or even for a computer in a lithium mine in Africa with a poor five-year-old child. That if you looked at the just the abuse that that child had to endure, your heart would melt. And yet these are the miners of the components that we need in order to go in that electric car … Then you look at the battery … What is it charged with? It’s charge with carbon!”
Electric cars are “not as green as we are told,” she said. “Many of the green products are not as green.”

UPDATE: The farmers' protests are spreading

Protests led by thousands of farmers have broken out across the Netherlands, and they're now spreading to Italy, Germany and Poland - this is a fightback against not just environmental regulations and the resulting inflation, but also the elites' Great Reset agenda.
While the demonstrations themselves have been overwhelmingly free from violence on the affected farmers' part, the response to them has been anything but: Earlier this week, Dutch police opened fire on a 16-year-old tractor driver during a protest in Heerenveen.
While -- thank God -- this unfortunate incident did not result in any deaths or injuries, a formal investigation is still forthcoming, and farmers and concerned citizens now know, without question, what measures could be pursued in order to silence opposition to backers of the international Great Reset, which could spell doom for the livelihood of farmers everywhere.
That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of farmers across world against intrusive, overreaching policies of globalist organizations and political leaders who seek to prioritize their own extreme environmental ideology over the ability for everyday farmers to earn a living and provide for their families and communities.
HAPPENING NOW: Farmers who learned from Canadian Freedom Protesters are currently blockading the Netherlands/Germany border with tractors to protest the WEF climate change policies of their government. pic.twitter.com/I7UJTusAZT— Keean Bexte 🇳🇱 (@TheRealKeean) June 30, 2022
Of course, these kinds of extreme environmental policies are not only a threat to the livelihoods of farmers in the Netherlands, or just the nations that comprise the European Union, for that matter: These regulations most certainly can (and inevitably will) make their way to every corner of our world, including countries like YOURS.
In the Netherlands, specifically, lawmakers recently approved legislative proposals to significantly decrease greenhouse emissions by the end of the decade, most notably ammonia and nitrogen oxide, which are common in farming.
This plan, as championed by Christianne van der Wal, the Dutch Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy since January, seeks to exceed the globalist EU's agreement among Member States to reduce greenhouse emissions as a means to combat climate change by at least 40% by the year 2030, replacing the desired percentage with an even loftier 55%.
As a result, it would seem almost inevitable that thousands of farms could find themselves in jeopardy within the coming years, but Dutch farmers have no plans to stand down; in fact, this embrace of EU and World Economic Forum (WEF)-style environmental demands is the primary force behind the ongoing protests by as many as 40,000 farmers, who, in response, have taken their tractors to highways across the Netherlands, making an unmistakable statement of resistance reminiscent of that of the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers in order to protect their livelihoods.
Similar protests have also broken among farmers in Italy, as you can see here:
IT'S HAPPENING 🇮🇹: Italian farmers are rising up in protest, threatening to take their tractors to Rome. "We are not slaves, we are farmers! We cannot make ends meet!" pic.twitter.com/FAznWFXmM0— Keean Bexte 🇳🇱 (@TheRealKeean) July 7, 2022
Such policies are a clear tenet of the Great Reset, pushed by globalist entities around the world like the World Economic Forum. Look no further than the WEF's own "Net Zero Challenge," which seeks to coerce participants into cutting all greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, and will inevitably threaten countless jobs and livelihoods in the process.
Let there be no doubt: these extreme environmental policies and transgressions against working people cannot be expected to stop any time soon.
That's why we must take this opportunity to make our voices heard -- whether you're a farmer, yourself; work in an industry that would be negatively affected by such policies; or simply support the hardworking men and women in your country and others who wish to maintain the freedom to provide for their families without excessive government and globalist interference.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Dutch farmers, and farmers and workers across the world, whose livelihoods can and eventually will be harmed by the extreme environmental demands of globalist entities like the EU and WEF seeking to implement the Great Reset.

Against the Great Reset
The conservative politician made it clear in no uncertain terms that she was vehemently against the Great Reset theory put forth by Klaus Schwab.
“The Great Reset, which is not a conspiracy,” she said, “is a grand theory of where they see our entire society going.”
“They’ve been programming us to want to eat bugs,” she added.
Stating that Justin Trudeau was a big proponent of the Great Reset agenda, she said, “He wants to remake our society into a post nationalist image of what he considers to be an egalitarian, flat society.”
Lewis blasted the hypocrisy of the Davos conference that took place earlier this summer. “If you look at the recent conference that they had in Davos, they basically put limousines on jets in order to get them over there so that they could be driven around in luxury, but they want to limit the travel of average Canadians.”
She said “a two-tier society [is] being created.”
Peterson agreed that Trudeau is the “poster boy for the Klaus Schwab and WEF (World Economic Forum) types.”
He compared Trudeau with “the halfwit cliché mongers like Klaus Schwab.”
National and medical sovereignty
To end the interview, Lewis emphasized that sovereignty of both the individual and of Canada as a nation are paramount.
She explained that her goal as a politician is to fight against the Great Reset agenda and ensure that Canada does not go down the route of unmitigated globalism.
Lewis explained that her commitment to sovereignty of the citizen was why she refused to disclose her vaccination status.
“I made the tough decision of not divulging my vaccination status, even though I knew that I would not get a shadow cabinet position,” she said.
“Why did we have all these rules when we knew the truth of that it was just basically personal responsibility and informed consent if you wanted to take the vaccine.”
Votes for a new CPC leader must be submitted by September 6 to the Conservative Party of Canada.
