Yes, here I go again, prognosticating on the political shape of things to come.
Not a pleasant subject for me, being an old white guy and all . . but nonetheless, it is what I feel compelled to do.
Putting on my “Carnac the Magnificent” hat (which will be familiar to you folks old enough to remember Jonny Carson) I gaze into my crystal ball (OK, acrylic..) and this is what I see.
The Trudeau Liberals are currently trying to secure enough support to get their heritage minister, Steven Guilbeault’s Bill C-10 passed. You see, it’s not enough to pay off the CBC’s and CTV’s and convert them into virtual propaganda arms of the government; now they want to control on-line content too.
It sounds like the Bloc Quebecois has come on-side and will support the bill without any amendments, so, along with the unconditional support from Justin’s lap-dog NDP, passage is all but a done-deal. Coincidental to this, Quebec just got a really sweet deal from Trudeau to be the sole province able to amend the Canadian Constitution, even though they were the only province that did NOT sign off on it.
Once Trudeau and his merry band of globalists have this in place, they will be able to muzzle virtually any opposition to their ‘vision’ of what Canada will be, and outlets like True North, Post Millenial and Rebel News will be a thing of the past.
Just recently, at an appearance before the heritage committee during its hearings on internet regulation bill C-10, Justice Minister David Lametti emphasized there are “legitimate” ways in which legislation can infringe the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, including freedom of expression. Does that give you a warm and fuzzy feeling?
So the way I see it, Trudeau is just waiting to get this bill pushed through, so that he has control over not just the mainstream media, but social media as well. Once he can virtually eliminate any dissenting voices by the new powers vested in him, he will call an election and be guaranteed of unanimously positive press coverage leading neatly to his coronation.
The conservatives will certainly do no better than they did with Scheer, in fact I believe they will drop at least 10% if not more like 20 points. I swear that O’Toole is a closet Liberal – it’s as if he was hand-picked to lead the opposition by Justin himself.
The communist — er, Liberal, party will rule in their perpetual alliance with the socialist NDP and the Bloc, for decades to come. Even if the conservatives ran Jesus Christ himself, they will never have enough to beat the combined total from all of the other parties. If there is one thing you can take to the bank, it’s that the Conservatives will always find a way to fall on their swords when they elect a leader.
And most Canadians will go on believing that propaganda agents like the CBC are actually credible unbiased news sources.
I will of course support Maxime Bernier of the PPC – he is the only one talking sensibly as far as I am concerned. However, with current and projected demographics and controlled (or should I say, out-of-control) immigration, the future of such a party looks bleak. All of the talking heads in the mainstream media will continue to vilify him, and most Canadians will fall in, or be intimidated into silence.
I wish I could say that I still have hope for the future of all Canadians, including my progeny, but alas, I cannot seem to find anything optimistic about the direction things seem to be heading in.
