CANADA, December 4, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ­– Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is speaking out in support of Indian farmers’ right to peacefully protest despite having Canadians arrested and fined for doing just that.

Trudeau was the first world leader to come out in support of the Indian farmers’ strike currently happening in Dehli.

“Canada will always be there to defend the right of peaceful protest,” he said.

Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has introduced a bill which threatens to seize control of online media content in Canada, putting liberty and freedom at risk.

But, the Trudeau Liberals have no right to impose their party's ideology on the Canadian internet!

Please SIGN this petition which tells the Trudeau Liberals, as well as the opposition, to leave the internet as a free speech zone!

Bill C-10 is causing alarm bells to sound with conservative and Christians, who are concerned that it is the first step towards the destruction of independent online media in Canada.

The Bill would require more "diversity and inclusion" content, reflecting the experience of "Canadians from racialized communities and Canadians of diverse ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and ages."

And, Bill C-10 would also give power to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to "assign penalties for non-compliance."

With this frightening new power, Bill C-10 is a real threat to the freedom of speech of conservatives and Christians in Canada who engage with the entire world about their issues on the internet.

Jay Cameron, a lawyer for the Canada-based Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms told LifeSite:

"It is clear from recent statements by the PM and the Heritage Minister that the federal government wants to increase control and penalties for speech and content that is not approved of by the ideologues in the Liberal Party. Unsurprisingly, the purpose of Bill C-10 is not to increase freedom of ‘thought, belief, opinion, and expression’ (section 2(b) of the Charter) but to further restrict it.".

Simply put: the chilling effect that this Bill could have on freedom of speech rights is incalculable.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which tells Trudeau Liberals to stop their attempt to impose their party's ideology on the Canadian internet.

Tell them to scrap Bill C-10 and leave the internet as an independent forum where ideas, beliefs and other ventures can be discussed without government regulation or censorship.

And, tell them that Canadian adults are mature enough to make up their own minds about sensitive topics without government interference.

After you have signed the petition, please consider politely contacting the Minister for Canadian Heritage, the Shadow Minister for Industry and Economic Development, and the Prime Minister's office, to tell them about your dismay regarding Bill C-10. CONTACT DETAILS BELOW.

Thank you!

New proposed agricultural legislation would seek to deregulate crop pricing in India, but local farmers are concerned they will be left at the mercy of large corporations.

Trudeau voiced his concerns during a virtual birthday celebration for Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism.

“We believe in the importance of dialogue and that's why we've reached out through multiple means directly to the Indian authorities to highlight our concerns,” he said.

At the same time, Canadians are being fined and arrested for exercising their right to peaceful protest as extreme restrictions have been once again imposed throughout the country with the government giving “cases” of COVID-19 as the reason.

Ontario Independent MPP Randy Hillier has been charged after hosting two anti-lockdown rallies outside Queen’s Park and will appear in court on January 7, while a 32-year-old woman has also been fined for organizing a peaceful protest attended by over 100 people while outdoor gathering restrictions in Ontario are limited to ten people.

Both Hillier and the woman face fines between $10,000 – $100,000.

In Saskatoon a man was fined $2,800 for helping to organize an anti-mask protest, while Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister reprimanded those who attended an anti-lockdown rally, sending they will be getting fines in their mailboxes.

Also in Manitoba, Springs Church defied public health restrictions that said church services could only be done virtually, hosting four large “drive-in” services which were attended by hundreds.

Manitoban police are now monitoring churches, and in at least one case at the Church of God Restoration have blocked the parking lot off to the faithful and fined the church $5,000.

In Calgary last week’s Walk for Freedom was attended by roughly 300 people, in violation of Alberta’s 10-person limit for outdoor gatherings.

Police were present but did not hand out fines, saying they want to take an educational approach.

While Canada has 394,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, India has over 9.4 million, further highlighting Trudeau’s duplicity.
