END TRUDEAU’S VACCINE MANDATE FOR TRAVEL! Contact your politicians TODAY.

(LifeSiteNews) – A new poll shows that most Canadians have become increasingly concerned that political leaders and media are “purposely trying to mislead people.” 

Recently, the global communications firm Edelman released their 2022 Trust Barometer  recording public responses to societal institutions and issues, which shows most Canadians distrust mainstream media.  

A majority of Canadians believesocietal leaders’ are misleading them, with seventy-one percent expressing concern over “fake news being used as a weapon.” 

Regarding news and information, more than half of Canadians distrust traditional media, while from forty-nine to twenty-one percent respectively distrust search engines, owned media, and social media.  

The report also asked Canadians if they believe certain groups “are purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.”  

Sixty-one percent of Canadians agreed regarding journalists, a jump of twelve percent from 2021. Similarly, business and government leaders are distrusted by sixty and fifty-eight percent of Canadian respectively.  

Additionally, more than half of Canadians agreed with the statement that Canadians “lack the ability to have constructive and civil debates about issues they disagree on.”

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.

Regarding institutions, Canadians place the most trust in their employers, followed by NGOs, business, government, and finally media.  

However, on an individual level, Canadians most trust scientists; journalists, government leaders, and CEOs are last.  

Many mainstream media outlets, financially supported in part by the Trudeau government, misrepresented the Freedom Convoy this January. While mainstream media trumpeted claims of the protest being ‘violent,’ evidence showed that this was incorrect.

In February, Canadian and American media outlets, including the left-wing Washington Post, were condemned for using hacked information to allegedly harass individuals who donated to participants of the Freedom Convoy 

Additionally, mainstream media routinely ignores or downplays the annual National March for Life in downtown Ottawa.
