OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) — The Trudeau government plans to redesign the Canadian crown that sits on the Royal Coat of Arms following the Coronation of King Charles III by removing all religious symbols. 

According to the National Post, the Canadian Heraldic Authority, the body responsible for granting coats of arms in Canada, will replace the St. Edward’s Cross which has been on the Coat of Arms since 1957 with what critics call “the Trudeau Crown.” 

The new design is further expected to remove all religious symbols, replacing crosses and fleur-de-lis with maple leaves, snowflakes, and stars, which is causing some to accuse the Liberal Party of politicizing the symbol of the Crown and the Royal Coat of Arms. 

“It means the proposed Canadian crown is totally unconnected to the King or the coronation, and it means the unity of the symbol of the Royal Crown that represents the sovereign throughout the realms will be broken, further distancing the King and the monarchy as an institution,” commented Christopher McCreery, author and expert on Canada’s relationship with the Crown.

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.

“In essence, it is akin to a new national flag being raised on Canada Day, with no consultation or debate, developed in secret by those who wish to advance their personal vision of the country,” he added.  

The Reform Party Leader Preston Manning challenged the decision, asking then Heritage Minister Michel Dupuy to whom Canadian symbols belong: “To the sovereign, to the government, to some Liberal backbencher or to the people of Canada? Why were the people of Canada not consulted and involved in changes to the Canadian Coat of Arms?” 

While the changes must ultimately be approved by the English Monarch, King Charles III has little actual power to overturn the decision if the new design is actively promoted by the Canadian government.

The original Canada Coat of Arms was adopted by proclamation of King George V in 1921. In 1994, an inscription was added reading: “Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam,” which means “Desiring a Better Country” from the Epistle to the Hebrews.  

While sovereigns have the right to choose which style of Royal Cross will represent their reign on coats of arms, coins, medals and other symbols of authority, Canada has not changed Her Coat of Arms since adding the inscription in 1994. 

According to officials, the Trudeau government is taking advantage of King Charles III’s decision to be represented by a Tudor Crown, instead of the St. Edward’s Crown which was used by his late mother, Queen Elizabeth, to push forward a new “Canadian Crown” and eventually completely reform the Royal Coat of Arms. 

This change is not the first push to remove religious symbols from Canada, despite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s repeated claims that he is a faithful Catholic. In 2019, the government of Quebec passed a bill forbidding civil servants to display religious symbols on their person while at work.  

The removal of religious symbols from public places is not a new practice and has occurred throughout history. In Communist Russia, Stalin forcibly removed all crucifixes and religious art from schools and government offices, in addition to closing churches, and synagogues.
