CARPAY: Government restraining order against peaceful protest is a naked attack on Albertans’ freedoms

“Rather than relying on regular law enforcement, it’s far more effective, and far more efficient, to terrorize Albertans with an injunction like that issued by Justice Rooke on May 6, which leaves citizens unable to assert their Charter freedoms upon being arrested and imprisoned.”

On May 6, 2021, Associate Chief Justice John Rooke of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench issued what might be the broadest restraining order in common law history. Justice Rooke’s injunction allows police to arrest and detain immediately any Albertan who exercises her or his Charter freedoms in the face of Alberta Premier Jason Kenney’s unscientific and unconstitution

    I shouldn’t have read this artcle, lol, then I could plead ignorance if/when I have to stand before the court. In this ignorance would’ve been bliss!

    The ability to peacefully protest is not just a constitutional freedom. It is a CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY AND DUTY for every true patriot who truly cares about the good of his/her country. Peaceful protest also involves holding more than merely standing in front of a government building holding signs. To protect the freedoms we have been given by our Creator, we MUST, if we are true patriots, intentionally engage in CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE that inflicts REAL MATERIAL LOSS on those who savagely seek to rip them away.

    Kenney, Hoaxshaw and Shamdro, and now “(in)justice” Rooke are no longer wolves in sheep’s clothing. The costumes and kid gloves are off. This is undisguised NAKED EVIL.

    Its now apparent that the AHS and their union are not duly elected and are protecting the AHS and not the Alberta taxpayers. Alberta taxpayer needs to sue the AhS for the loss of income for their unlawful breach of the economy.

    so then LEAD CANADA/CANADIANS BY STANDING UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND LETTING THOSE WHO WERE VOTED IN AND WELL PAID BY YOU KNOW THEY ARE NO LONGER GOING TO TELL US WHAT WE CAN DO, SAY , THINK ETC!
    Canada used to be a free, democratic, sovereign, respected, envied nation and now, WE ARE THE JOKE OF THE PLANET AND WE HAVE NO ALLIES OR FRIENDS ( thanks to trudeau and cartel) so NO ONE IS COMING TO SAVE OUR SORRY ASSES THIS TIME!
    WHAT was the point of all our BRAVE MEN GOING OFF TO WAR FOR OUR FREEDOMS , DEMOCRACY AND LIVES/NATION since clearly canadians don’t give a damn and ultimately don’t deserve all which we have had and took advantage of because of these brave men and those who built this once great land now a border-less, lawless, leaderless third world bankrupt welfare sewer!

    I would like to know what Judge Rooke’s deal is. Why would any decent law honoring man knowingly breach the constitution? And did AHS specifically seek him out on the bench because he’s a lockdown advocate?

Some commentators have noted the silence of Canada’s Left in the face of anti-government protests in Cuba. Why the reluctance to condemn a communist dictatorship? Well, as it turns out, some members of Canada’s Left have a fairly positive view of communism. One such prominent Canadian leftist was C.B. Macpherson (1911-1987), an internationally-renowned political scientist who taught politi

MORGAN: COVID has shown the need to overhaul Canada’s health care system

“We need to stop pretending the American and Canadian models of health provision are the only ones on earth. In fact, only two other countries on the planet explicitly ban private health care insurance: Cuba and North Korea.”

After his retirement, Ralph Klein was quoted expressing regret for having backed down on his "third-way" health care reform plan. We are paying the price today for the government's lack of will of yesteryear. Canada's health care system has long been considered a sacred cow. We have been taught since childhood that it's the best health care system on the planet; it's the very thing that defin

CONROY: Biles did the best she could under the circumstances

Simone Biles has just as much of a right to take a break, step back, or make any other choice for her career which she sees fit.

Simone Biles' choice to withdraw from the remaining Olympic events is respectable when you look at her reasoning. Characters like bombastic TV personality Piers Morgan would disagree, but Biles' choice to withdraw from the remaining gymnastics competitions in this year's Olympics is not only honourable but, sadly, predictable. The lives of professional athletes have always been caught up in a

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
