Unified Grassroots founder slams Moe for betraying Sask party principles

Ness also believes the SaskParty’s second guiding principle of “Smaller, less intrusive, more efficient government” is glaringly absent.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe betrayed his party’s principles, says the founder of a non-profit organization that now boasts 10,000 on its e-mail list.

Nadine Ness, founder of Unified Grassroots, had a difficult time getting her message through to Moe’s Saskatchewan Party. She made her case in the YouTube video “Nadine Ness Has A Message for Scott Moe!” which been watched more than 20,000 times.

“Our main goal is to fight the division and hate that spreading across the province. I’ve tried to get a hold of Scott Moe, I’ve called their MLAs several times. Some I was able to reach, but…no one seemed to listen to our concerns. They seem to have their own way of doing things. And they’re not open to listening and representing the people of Saskatchewan. This is not the government we had when Brad Wall was involved, was at the helm,” Ness said.

In her 12-minute commentary posted on the True Canadian Politics channel, Ness said she had no political interest or involvement until government actions during the pandemic left her no choice.

“I’m constantly waiting. What’s the next erosion of my freedom going to be? Are they going to tell me tomorrow who I can have at my kitchen or house? Who I can be friends with?” she asked.

Ness said she looked up the guiding principles of the Saskatchewan Party and “really, really liked” its calls for private sector economic growth, lower taxes, less spending, balanced budgets, individual freedom, and responsive government.

“I was like, ‘Yes, this is what I want.’ But then I realized that’s not what we’re getting. And this message is to Scott Moe to appeal to him to take a look at them. I’m wondering if anyone at the SaskParty has looked at those in the last two years,” Ness said.

“The government has created policies that seemed to punish small business the most. They’re forcing small business to segregate society into two different groups of people … I have people calling me saying they’ve lost their business or they’re about to … and they’ve tried contacting the government, they tried contacting their MLAs. And it’s going on deaf ears.”

The fourth guiding principle, “a high-quality health care system,” is not evident to Ness.

“There’s too much bureaucrats making way too much money, taking away the funds where they’re mostly needed — which is with the front care workers,” Ness said.

“Too much red tape, and less caring, I would say. My husband, being a family physician, is extremely concerned with some of the ethics that’s coming out of this pandemic, the fact that medical consent is pretty much non-existent. It has to be without fear or coercion and fully informed.”

Ness also believes the SaskParty’s second guiding principle of “Smaller, less intrusive, more efficient government” is glaringly absent.

“I don’t know of a time in my life where the government has been as intrusive as this government has been. You’ve somehow found a way to make your way into our homes, into our businesses, into our workplaces, it doesn’t matter, into every aspect of our lives,” Ness said.

“I’d love to say that you’re representing the people, you’re doing this in the best interest of the people, but I’m not 100% sure that’s who your alliances are. I’m starting to question if perhaps you’re doing what Trudeau wants or Ottawa wants.”

Ness criticized Moe for stating earlier this fall the time for patience with the unvaccinated was over.

“That’s not how you should be talking to the people of Saskatchewan. I think you forgot that you are supposed to represent the people of Saskatchewan, not rule over them,” Ness said.

“I understand you don’t really have an opposition at the moment — well, a valuable one. But maybe it’s time we change that.”

Ness, a married mother of three children and retired RCMP officer, concluded with a renewed request to meet Moe.

“The ball’s in your court. I know for a fact the people of Saskatchewan are not OK with the direction this province is going. I think you’ve severely underestimated us. You’ve underestimated what the true heart of Saskatchewan is: true north strong and free.”

    People who can think for themselves see who the cowards and bought out puppets are in Canada. I didn’t think Moe was one of them but I was wrong. Please people fight for our grandchildren.

    Moe . . . like so many other Canadian Premiers listened to our Idiot Crime Minister, the WHO fake Dr. Tam and their inept Provincial Health Care Bureaucrats.

    None of these people had a friggin clue . . .

    Too bad Moe didn’t look around the world and see what other Successful Jurisdictions were doing different? Like Sweden, Florida, South Dakota . . .

    Too bad he didn’t pay attention to prominent Drs. at Stanford U like Dr. Atlas, or Dr. McCollough who have been telling the TRUTH for 2 years now.

    Over 42,000 Adverse Reaction Reports Revealed In First Batch Of Pfizer Vax Docs

    The FDA’s excruciatingly slow release of data related to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine has already borne fruit, and it’s damning despite a trickle of just 500 pages per month out of 329,000 pages – which will take until 2076 to complete.

    As first reported by Kyle Becker, there were a total of 42,086 case reports for adverse reactions (25,379 medically confirmed, 16,707 non-medically confirmed), spanning 158,893 total events.

    More than 25,000 of the events were classified as “Nervous system disorders.”

Ottawa press gallery discusses letting Chinese propaganda agency in

Xinhua has been accused of misusing press privileges at the direction of Chinese diplomats.

Officials with the Parliamentary Press Gallery held a behind closed doors meeting on Tuesday to talk about letting reporters from Xinhau, the Chinese Community Party’s propaganda agency, into the club, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

“The gallery is not bound by any outside political considerations,” said gallery president Catherine Levesque of the National Post. 

“We are doing our due diligence to ensure Xinhua meets certain criteria and we will be making a decision shortly.”

Xinhua has been accused of misusing press privileges at the direction of Chinese diplomats.

“Membership in the Parliamentary Press Gallery allows access to the secure physical buildings of the parliamentary precinct and the opportunity to directly question individuals who drive and shape public policy,” gallery directors wrote in a 2020 code Journalistic Principles And Practices.

“As a result, accreditation is a privilege, not a right.”

Xinhua had been a member until 2020 when its press pass lapsed.

The Department of National Defence in 2012 blacklisted the agency from attending its press briefings, and a Xinhua correspondent in 2012 disclosed he was asked to maintain surveillance on Chinese dissidents in Canada.

The gallery would not discuss the Xinhua application but the gallery code states members must “respect the rights of people involved in the news.”

The Commons by a unanimous 266-0 vote last February 22 condemned China for human rights atrocities including the genocide of its Uyghur Muslim community. MPs also voted to petition the International Olympic Committee to relocate the 2022 Winter Games from Beijing.

“We need to move forward, not just as a country but as a world, on recognizing the human rights violations that are going on in China,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier told reporters.

“This is an issue that matters deeply to me, to all Canadians, and we will continue to work with our partners and allies on taking it seriously.”

Xinhua was originally granted Press Gallery membership in 1964 at the request of then-Foreign Minister Paul Martin Sr.

“It is a step in the direction of mutual understanding between Canada and mainland China,” Martin said at the time. Membership was approved in a press credentials swap that saw the Communist Party permit the Globe & Mail to open a Beijing bureau.

PHA head says cellphone snooping fears unwarranted

Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said managers at no time collected information that personally identified any of 33 million cellphone users.

The president of the Public Health Agency (PHA) says Canadians need not fret over the fact his organization snooped on 33 million cellphone users, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said managers at no time collected information that personally identified any of 33 million cellphone users.

“No personal information was asked or was received,” Kochhar told the Commons health committee.

“No individually identifiable data is contained in any part of the work.”

The Commons ethics committee last Friday voted 10-0 to examine the data collection program using cellphone tower tracking. The PHA said it sought the information to monitor compliance with lockdown orders.

“The actual reason why we collected this data is reliable, timely and relevant public health data comes out of it for other policy and decision making,” said Kochhar.

“This is population-level mobility data analysis. This is what we have collected.

“That would help us to understand the possible link between the movement of populations within Canada and the impact on COVID-19. We did that in terms of a very clear way of getting that open and transparent means of collection. We never, ever actually know when we use that information that it is individually identifiable. It is aggregated data.”

MPs on the ethics committee earlier noted cellphone users were never told the PHA was collecting the cellphone tracking data. Conservative MP John Brassard (Barrie-Innisfil, Ont.), noted the scope of the monitoring was only detailed when the Agency issued a December 17 notice to contractors to expand the program.

“It becomes increasingly concerning that government is seemingly using this pandemic as a means and a cause for massive overreach into the privacy rights of Canadians,” said Brassard.

“As parliamentarians, it’s incumbent upon us to make sure we protect those rights, that there is proper scrutiny and oversight.”

“The Public Health Agency was collecting data without the knowledge of Canadians, effectively doing it in secret. We need to know what security measures were in place to protect the privacy rights of Canadians.

“It is vital we do not allow the COVID response to create a permanent backslide of the rights and freedoms of Canadians including their fundamental right to privacy.”

Health Minister Duclos has no info on $150-million COVID contract to SNC-Lavalin

But testifying at the Commons health committee, Duclos had no answer when asked why the contract was issued.

SNC-Lavalin was given a $150-million sole-source contract to provide “urgently” needed field hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic — but Canada’s Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos doesn’t seem to know much about it, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The field hospitals were never used.

“This is obviously in support of the needs at the request of provinces and territories,” said Duclos.

But testifying at the Commons health committee, Duclos had no answer when asked why the contract was issued.

“What is the status of the mobile field hospitals SNC-Lavalin was contracted to produce?” asked Conservative MP Shelby Kramp-Neuman (Hastings-Lennox, Ont.).

“It was an example of the significant level of preparation that we did throughout the crisis,” replied Duclos.

“Why have the field hospitals from SNC-Lavalin not been deployed?” asked Kramp-Neuman.

Duclos replied he had no information on “the exact nature of the state of that equipment.”

“Did the Prime Minister’s Office approve of this?” asked MP Kramp-Neuman.

“That’s a public works question,” replied Duclos.

“We’re not getting a lot of clarity here,” said MP Kramp-Neuman, adding: “The buck stops with you. Sadly, I recognize you don’t have all the answers to everything, but it doesn’t seem like we’re getting a lot of answers to anything.”

An unidentified Department of Public Works manager finalized the SNC-Lavalin contract on April 9, 2020 without notice to other bidders.

“A public call for tenders was not issued due to the urgency of the need as a result of the pandemic,” said an internal e-mail.

However, as late as Sep. 9, 2020, the Québec contractor had still not fixed a delivery date, according to staff emails.

Paul Thompson, deputy minister of public works, Tuesday said he knew little of the contract details.

“I personally don’t have all the details at my fingertips,” said Thompson.

SNC-Lavalin was paid to supply field hospitals equipped with 200 hospital beds, ventilators, masks, medical gowns and ten days’ worth of medication, back-up generators, water and oxygen tanks, X-ray machines, shower bays and latrines.

“The self-sufficiency of the unit makes it extremely flexible for deployment where the need is greatest in Canada,” said a memo.

Internal records dated Oct. 13, 2020 disclosed no one wanted the field hospitals.

The department said spending included $2 million for design work and millions more on warehousing medical supplies for presumed future use.
