(LifeSiteNews) – The leader of the Ontario Party and former federal Member of Parliament Derek Sloan’s Twitter account was suddenly restored — despite a “permanent” ban — after his supporters called upon  Elon Musk to reinstate his profile.

“My Twitter account was reinstated without notice. This comes 12 days after Twitter officials removed me from Twitter — Leader of the Ontario Party — during a provincial election,” Sloan said in a press release on Friday.

“My team and I committed ourselves to fighting this unjust ban. After significant attention in local, national, and international news, and also grassroots action by our supporters and others who support openness and fairness in democracy, we were able to create great awareness on social media using hashtags such as #bringbacksloan.”

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reinstate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021.

After contentious negotiations, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has purchased Twitter, thereby transforming the tech giant into a private company.

A self-styled "free speech absolutist," Mr. Musk's entrepreneurial spirit may define his approach to governing Twitter, where, in the marketplace of ideas, the best ideas - not those aided by censorship - will naturally prevail among the competition.

Of course, there are limits to free speech. But, for too long, Big Tech giants (including, Twitter, Google, YouTube and Facebook) have subjected their conservative and Christian users to all forms of censorship, desperately trying to silence our voices.

So if, as it seems, Mr. Musk will level the playing field for conservatives and Christians and allow a true exchange of ideas to occur on his platform, then we look forward to our chance to re-engage on Twitter.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reactivate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021. They are:

These accounts have been blocked by the outgoing Twitter regime for more than a year for calling a ‘transgender woman’ (Assistant Secretary of Health, 'Rachel' Levine), a man, and for tweeting an article about the same person.

The article we tweeted makes mention of the troubling paradox of having a person who denies the basic science of the human anatomy be in an authoritative position in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), but does not cast aspersions or any other such “hate speech” against Levine, according to Twitter’s "rules."

It is our fervant hope that Mr. Musk intends to allow - rather than censor - our descriptions of reality as we know them to be true in regards to human sexuality, as well as in other areas of life.

Mr. Musk evidently understands how significant freedom of speech is to the functioning of a free society as he was quoted as saying that this deal is important for "the future of civlization."

LifeSiteNews believes that being able to spread the truth in charity is absolutely vital for the future of society, as the "truth shall make you free." (Jn 8:32)

And so, in order for us to charitably spread the truth far and wide, we now seek to re-engage on Twitter's public square.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to Elon Musk, urging him to now reinstate LifeSiteNews' suspended Twitter accounts.

Sloan noted that many of his supporters directly messaged Twitter’s new leader, Elon Musk, which Sloan said appears to “have caused Twitter to reverse their decision, fully reinstating my account.”

Two weeks ago, Sloan said to LifeSiteNews, “Elon, throw me a bone, get me back on Twitter.”

Sloan also at the time encouraged his supporters to push hard on social media to petition Musk to reinstate his account.

Sloan wrote in his first tweet after his account was restored on Friday, “I won against Twitter, and I won’t be silenced.”

Sloan was notified by Twitter that his account had been “permanently” suspended on May 8 for a tweet that called out the safety of the COVID jabs.

In an interview with LifeSiteNews, Sloan said that he appealed the ban but was notified by Twitter that his account “was permanently suspended due to multiple or repeat violations of the Twitter Rules.”

“This account will not be restored. This case will now be closed and replies will not be monitored,” Twitter wrote to Sloan, as shown to LifeSiteNews.

Sloan’s tweet was a reply he gave to a tweet from a Rebel News board member regarding remarks from Canadian Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam.

On May 8, Rebel News board member of head of post-production Efron Monsanto tweeted a video clip in which Tam remarked that around 50 percent of people who caught COVID have “long COVID” symptoms.

“We probably anticipate that the impacts of long COVID is going to be quite substantial,” said Tam, who then said Canadians should get a COVID booster shot as a result.

In reply to Tam’s remarks, Sloan wrote, “Their next move will be to rebrand the symptoms of COVID vaccine injury as ‘long COVID.’ The cure for ‘long COVID’ will be more vaccine boosters, which will create more ‘long COVID.’ Public health isn’t on your side.”

Sloan noted Friday that he is pleased “Twitter decided to correct this censorship of a party leader during an election cycle.”

“Social media must always remain a free and open tool for discussion and debate — particularly during election times,” Sloan added.

Sloan said that it was unfortunate that other “party leaders in Canada, or other candidates running in the riding of Hastings-Lennox & Addington, did not unequivocally condemn the censoring of a provincial party leader by social media.”

“Censorship and lack of debate hurts us all. We hope other candidates and party leaders will stand strong for free speech, open debate, and transparency,” he added.

Musk is known to be an advocate for free speech. Last month, Twitter announced the $44 billion sale or buyout to Musk. It is anticipated Musk will take over as Twitter CEO once his deal to buy Twitter closes.

Billionaire entrepreneur Musk said recently that he will reactivate former U.S. President Donald Trump’s Twitter account should his deal to buy the company close.

Sloan’s Ontario Party, whose motto is “Freedom, Family, & Faith,” is currently in the middle of a campaign for the Ontario provincial elections, which will take place on June 2.

When Sloan was an MP, he was outspoken against COVID mandates, including the jabs. He was kicked out of the Conservative Party of Canada shortly after the 2022 leadership race, of which he was a candidate.

He is outspokenly pro-life, and recently hired former Trump adviser Roger Stone to help run his Ontario Party.

COVID vaccine mandates have split Canadian society. The mRNA shots themselves, approved for use in Canada, have been linked to a multitude of negative and often severe side effects in children.

A recent study linking heart deaths to the mRNA jabs is now facing a “major pushback” from large pharmaceutical companies.

In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently limited the use of Johnson and Johnson’s (J&J) COVID vaccine for adults because of an increase in the risks of blood clots.

The jabs also have connections to cell lines derived from aborted babies. As a result of this, many Catholics and other Christians refuse to take them.

COVID-19 has extremely high survivability among most groups, and studies show a minimal risk of asymptomatic spread. Research also indicates that post-infection natural immunity is far superior to vaccine-induced immunity.
