(LifeSiteNews) –– People’s Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier spared no words in blasting the “transgender madness” targeting kids across Canada, while also taking the time to point out the Conservative Party of Canada’s silence on the topic. 

In a newsletter sent to his followers on April 7, Bernier noted that in the past few months “it feels like things have been kicked into overdrive” when it comes to “transgender madness.” 

“Across Canada, radical trans activists have been aggressively pushing their agenda to normalize transgenderism, particularly amongst children,” wrote Bernier.  

“Not only have they not been opposed by governments, they are being actively protected by them!” 

Supporting Bernier’s point, just a few weeks ago the New Democratic Party (NDP) of Ontario, which is the province’s official opposition, introduced a bill that would in effect ban anyone from protesting within 100 meters of drag queen story times or other “2SLGBTQI+” designated events.  

Bill 94, known as the “Keeping 2SLGBTQI+ Communities Safe Act, 2023” was tabled by NDP MPP Kristyn Wong-Tam.  

If passed, those found to have performed an act of “intimidation” near any protected event could be fined up to $25,000.

The press conference for the introduction of the bill included many “transgender” activists standing alongside children.  

Noted Bernier about this, “Take a look at this screenshot from the press conference where they announced this new bill. I honestly can’t believe this isn’t from some satirical skit!”

At the same time transgenderism is being promoted by politicians, Canadians who have been speaking out against the ideology’s targeting of kids have been attacked by activists.  

During a recent “Transgender Day of Visibility” rally in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian father Chris Elston, was grabbed by the throat, then thrown to the ground and punched for opposing gender ideology. 

In another incident, Calgary pastor Derek Reimer was jailed twice and charged for protesting a children’s drag queen story hour at a public library a few weeks ago in the western Canadian city, at which he was assaulted.

He was released from a Calgary jail after he decided to sign bail papers to take care of an urgent medical condition, but was arrested again for a third time and is currently in jail awaiting another bail hearing. 

Said Bernier about these events, “these transgender activists know they’re above the law, they know establishment politicians will fall over themselves to protect their inappropriate behaviors just like we’ve seen in Calgary and Ontario.” 

“All of this had happened in just the last month!”  

Bernier recently lampooned the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) over a woke tweet promoting the day. He noted that “the Canadian military is completely dysfunctional and this is what they’re focused on?”  

Canada needs a ‘voice of reason’ to oppose transgender ‘madness’  

Bernier in his newsletter to PPC members asked plainly, “What is happening to our government? What is happening to our society?” 

He said that was is needed today is a “voice of reason in Parliament to stand up for basic realities like the fact that there are only two sexes, and that children should not be encouraged to ‘transition’ and be mutilated!”

Bernier then blasted the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) under its leader Pierre Poilievre for doing “absolutely nothing to push back on this disturbing trend,” accusing the party of choosing to “talk about the economy” instead of “touch[ing] important social and cultural issues like this.” 

He then accused some CPC MPs, such as Melissa Lantsman, of having quietly signaled “to the trans activists that they are on their side.” 

Bernier has consistently blasted the targeting of kids as a form of “incredibly irresponsible” gender “ideology” that “must stop.” 

While Canada’s Criminal Code already bans all forms of “hate speech,” laws like Ontario’s pending Bill 94 take the policy of speech a step further. 

In June 2022 in Calgary, for example, the city council under its left-leaning mayor, Jyoti Gondek, amended the city’s bylaws to “specifically prohibit insulting or demeaning behavior, including unwanted sexual advances, or harassing anyone on the basis of age, race, sexual orientation, disability, gender, gender identity or gender expression, among others.” 

Taking it a step further just last month, Calgary, in conjunction with its 2022 bylaw, passed the Safe and Inclusive Access Bylaw” to prohibit “specified protests” both inside and outside all city-owned and affiliated public buildings. 

The bylaw means pastors or concerned parents protesting against pro-LGBT events at public buildings will be barred from getting within 100 meters of any such location. 

Just his past Saturday, the son of famous COVID-resisting pastor Artur Pawlowski, Nathaniel Pawlowski, was ticketed after he preached Bible verses outside a drag queen story time held at a public library in the city. Police at the scene referenced a new city bylaw that prohibits such activity. 

The young man, along with his friend Deklan Friesen, could both be facing massive fines and perhaps even jail time over the incident.
