Real Women rep holds Trudeau accountable for church burnings and vandalism

“I think the blame should go on Trudeau. He couldn’t care less the damage he was doing to the Catholic Church trying to protect himself. He’s never owned up to any responsibility,” Gwendolyn Landolt told the Western Standard.

The National Vice President for the REAL Women of Canada believes the prime minister bears some responsibility for church burnings and vandalism earlier this summer.

In an interview with Western Standard, Gwendolyn Landolt said the government is “trying to shrug off responsibility” for its failures past and present.

“Trudeau [was] saying the Catholic Church better own up to its responsibilities. And then his Minister of Northern Affairs [was] saying the Catholic Church should be charged when in fact it was the responsibility of the federal government and the federal Department of Indian Affairs which since 1883 had been responsible for the residential schools. It had determined the policy, it refused to pay to transport any children who died in residence,” Landolt said.

Landolt received her law degree at the University of British Columbia and formerly was a federal government lawyer specializing in immigration and indigenous issues. She said the Trudeau government has not responded to the calls for action in the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation report regarding residential school cemeteries except to pledge $33.8 million in the 2019 budget for a residential school death registry.

“I think the blame should go on Trudeau. He couldn’t care less the damage he was doing to the Catholic Church trying to protect himself. He’s never owned up to any responsibility whether it’s the SNC Lavalin, whether it’s WE Charity, his ethics breaches. No, no, no, no, everybody else is wrong, but he’s right. And he’s never admitted fault about anything,” Landolt said.

“In a very immature and responsible manner, he has it all involved with the Catholic Church. And, of course, this has been picked up in the headlines and what in fact has led to the church burnings and what was going on.”

On June 4, before the church burnings began, Trudeau said: “As a Catholic, I am deeply disappointed by the position that the Catholic Church has taken now, and over the past many years…When I went to the Vatican a number of years ago, I directly asked His Holiness Pope Francis to move forward on apologizing, on asking for forgiveness, on restitution, on making these records available.”

Trudeau encouraged Canadians and Catholics to “to reach out in our local parishes, to reach out to bishops and cardinals, and make it clear that we expect the church to step up and take responsibility for its role in this, and be there to help in the grieving and the healing, including with records…It’s something a number of other churches, the United Church and others, have done. It’s something we are all still waiting for the Catholic Church to do.”

A CBC checklist of the 94 calls to action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission shows 14 have been completed, 25 are underway, 35 have proposals introduced, and there is no progress on the remaining 20.

Landolt pointed out on July 21 Trudeau had a one-day seminar on antisemitism, followed by one the next day Islamaphobia, but none regarding over 50 incidents of church arson and vandalism.

“It seems to be in Trudeau and the Liberal government’s mind, ‘Well, it’s only Catholic,’” said Landolt.

“Trudeau has shown that he may be a Catholic, but he certainly is…trying to thrust responsibility onto the Catholic Church which was his responsibility and the government’s responsibility.”

Landolt believes placing undue blame on the Catholic Church serves a political purpose.

“The secular world doesn’t want to have any religion in the public square…because the only thing that’s standing up to the woke cultural changes, or left-wing changes, have been organized religions,” Landolt said.

“They want to get rid of that. And this is a handy tool. Oh well, it’s okay, the Catholic Church, at least we’ll get them off the public square. But it certainly is more than a double standard – it’s hypocrisy to the utmost limit to further a known political agenda.”

    Uddin . . .

    YOU are a certifiable moron . . . a grifter from the ME.

    If you had read the Reconcillation Report that came out over 5 years ago . . . even a low intellect like you would know most of them died of disease over 100 years ago.

    I know burning Churches excites you . . . like it did the fake prophet who we now know was an 8th century creation?

    Stop blaming Trudeau and blame your perverted, racist, genocidal, fascist churches and fellow Christians who commit crimes against minorities (running over Muslim families, genocide of Natives, slavery, colonial wars, etc.).
    Trudeau and Libs didn’t molest and kill natives, white Christian terrorists did. Stop blaming others and look in the mirror ‘fake’ women,!

    Of course it was the government’s fault. They instituted these schools, they made the rules, and churches just were selected as contractors to carry out the government program. In addition there were also United and Anglican churches involed as well, but everyone seems to ignore that.
    Trudeau is trying to deflect government responsibility by blaming the Church, the organization contracted to carry out the government program. This was a government program for decades, and if the subcontractors were “murdering” everyone for decades and the government did nothing to stop it, then that’s a failure of the government. It was their program and they selected the facilitators.
    And Trudeau is anything but Catholic. He hates Christians, he hates anything Western, he promotes abortion. He is not Catholic and any priest that would give him communion, given that he’s a public heretic, isn’t Catholic either. Fake Catholic like Biden and Pelosi.
    You can’t be Catholic and promote abortion, the church is very clear on that matter. Problem is “Francis” isn’t Catholic either. The globalists infiltrated the Vatican too. There are certain public things that a Catholic can do and be automatically ex-communicated. Trudeau is defacto ex-communicated, even if he doesn’t realize it and the “Bishop in white” pretending to be Pope doesn’t recognize it.

    Landolt is correct . . . folks need to understand that our 2 Time University Dropout Crime Minister is the stupidest man to ever hold the position in Canada’s entire history.
    His pandering Gender & Diversity Cabinet is equally ill-equipped to deal with Canada’s problems today. He is a life-long Trust Funder and has led a life of privilege & leisure till he became leader of the Canadian Lieberal Party solely because of his last name!
    Another 4 years of this dolt will pretty much put the final nail in the Cdn Coffin . . .

Top Ontario doc says separating vaxxed and unvaxxed best way to get COVID under control

Ontario has had more than 626,000 cases of COVID-19 which has left more than 10,000 people dead.

One of the ways to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control is to stop “the mixing of unvaccinated and vaccinated,” says Ontario’s chief medical officer.

“Basic means of protecting individuals is stopping the mixing of unvaccinated and vaccinated,” said Dr. Kieran Moore at a Tuesday press conference.

“And if our cases continue through and after the holidays we would make recommendations of government to continue the certification process in play. But we’ll continue to review the data. We do have a very robust testing strategy in Ontario for the winter months as we’ve released previously. We’ve purchased … 11 million rapid antigen test for all students in Ontario.”

Moore was asked whether COVID-19 is “something we’re just going to have to learn to live with” and whether it would ever go away.

“We have a long ways to go with the World Health Organization and other international organizations to try to decrease the number of individuals in which this virus can mutate and/or spread,” he said.

“But I do see a time when we’ll have low, endemic rates and it will turn out to be like influenza or other winter respiratory viruses where there’s a seasonality to it, where it does have an intermittent impact on our health-care system and like influenza, you need an annual vaccine to protect against it.”

Trudeau’s beach denier demoted

Trudeau was photographed twice on a beach in Tofino after deciding to skip the first day of a holiday he created — the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.

The Justin Trudeau spokesman who told reporters the prime minister “wasn’t on a beach” when he was, has been demoted, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Trudeau was photographed twice on a beach in Tofino after deciding to skip the first day of a holiday he created — the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.

Trudeau had promised to “set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government.”

Alex Wellstead will be “taking on new challenges” as press secretary to the industry minister, the Prime Minister’s Office said yesterday.

Wellstead in a statement called it “a very difficult decision to make.” He had worked as Trudeau’s official spokesman for 20 months.

Wellstead on September 30 issued misleading statements to conceal the fact Trudeau spent the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation at a beach resort in Tofino, B.C.

“He wasn’t on a beach,” Wellstead told The Canadian Press at the time. Global News and the weekly Chilliwack Progress photographed Trudeau strolling on the beach and enjoying a glass of beer on a beachfront patio.

The Prime Minister’s Office claimed Trudeau was in private meetings in Ottawa. Staff flew an Indian Residential School “survivors’ flag” and issued a solemn statement in Trudeau’s name.

“We remember the children who never made it home,” it said.

Wellstead did not explain his conduct.

“You as a communicator need to understand everything,” Wellstead said in a March 30 interview with public relations students at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ont.

The prime minister in 2015 Ministerial Mandate letters said officials must be truthful and transparent.

“Members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, indeed all journalists in Canada and abroad, are professionals who by asking necessary questions contribute in an important way to the democratic process,” wrote Trudeau.

“Your professionalism and engagement with them is essential.

“We have committed to set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government. It is time to shine more light on government to ensure it remains focused on the people it serves.

“Government and its information should be open by default. If we want Canadians to trust their government, we need a government that trusts Canadians.

“It is important that we acknowledge mistakes when we make them. Canadians do not expect us to be perfect. They expect us to be honest, open and sincere in our efforts to serve the public interest.”

Trudeau on October 6 apologized for the Tofino holiday.

“Traveling on September 30 was a mistake and I regret it,” the prime minister told reporters.

“What made you decide to take a personal trip on a day your government set aside to honour the victims and survivors of residential schools?” asked a reporter.

“Like I said, it was a mistake,” replied Trudeau.

Feds threaten regulated businesses with COVID fines

The labour department in a statement said it would rewrite the Canada Labour Code to mandate vaccination for some 955,000 private sector employees in federally regulated sectors like air transportation, banking, broadcasting, grain milling, marine shipping, railways and interprovincial trucking.

If they don’t mandate vaccination of workers, the Labour department is threatening to levy cash fines against airports, banks, radio stations and other federally-regulated employers, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

But the Liberals stopped short of repeating an earlier threat to strip workers of legal rights to challenge vaccine orders.

“It is time to move on,” said Government House Leader Mark Holland.

“Get vaccinated. That’s what Canadians expect to have happen.

“I think the country understands we have now 90% of Canadians who have had their first injection, over 86% with their second. All workplaces across the country” should promote vaccinations, he added.

The labour department in a statement said it would rewrite the Canada Labour Code to mandate vaccination for some 955,000 private sector employees in federally regulated sectors like air transportation, banking, broadcasting, grain milling, marine shipping, railways and interprovincial trucking.

First Nations businesses will be exempt.

“Employers who do not comply with their obligations under the Canada Labour Code may be subject to compliance and enforcement measures including administrative monetary penalties,” the notice said.

“The government will consult with key stakeholders, including representatives of small and medium-sized employers, as it works expeditiously to finalize the new regulations which would come into force in early 2022. The government will also develop resources to help federally regulated workplaces implement the COVID-19 vaccination requirements.”

The notice made no reference to a liability shield proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the election campaign. Trudeau on September 1 said a re-elected Liberal cabinet would shield employers from any legal challenge of vaccination orders.

“We’ll stand firm on our commitment,” said Trudeau, adding: “We’ll protect businesses that mandate vaccinations from unjustified lawsuits.”

Canadians who declined a COVID-19 shot were “more than just wrong, because everyone’s entitled to their opinion, they are putting at risk their own kids and they’re putting at risk our kids as well,” said Trudeau.

“What about my choice to keep my kids safe? What about our choices to make sure we’re getting through this pandemic as quickly as we can?”

The Liberal Party in its September 1 campaign platform stated: “A re-elected Liberal government will table legislation to ensure every business and organization that decides to require proof of vaccination from employees and customers can do so without fear of a legal challenge.”

Compulsory vaccination breaches federal law, according to a May 19 statement by Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien and 1996 National Immunization Report by the Department of Health.
