August 21, 2019 – 60 DAYS TO CELEBRATE PERSEVERANCE OF HONESTY OVER CORRUPTION
CLARISSE LECOQ IS the new Urban Councillor in Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation. And thank God she is. Read the entirety here.
ANOTHER FIRST NATIONS WOMAN OF INTEGRITY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL
Clarisse Lecoq, a band administrator with 34 years of service, has been elected to the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation urban riding.
Lecoq won the August 15 by election for council with 400 ballots, 105 more than incumbent Warren McCallum. The urban seat consists of La Ronge, Cumberland House, Prince Albert and Saskatoon.
Lecoq had alleged improprieties in the general election more than a year ago that saw McCallum best her by 26 votes. An appeal tribunal sided with her. The dispute then went to a federal court before a by election could proceed. It proceeded and McCallum was left barking like the unrighteous dog he is. McCallum was represented by Lavoie Stonechild who should not be ashamed of taking McCallum on as a client for all deserve the best defense they can get.
Perhaps the ‘Stonechild firm’ will be blessed with helping Clarisse Lecoq achieve justice pro bono, eh?
Time to flush the toilet Lavoie Stonechild.
“I want to tackle urban issues and urban life, just because I know where they come from, and I have empathy and respect for everybody,” Lecoq said.
Lecoq originally hails from Pelican Narrows, but was transferred to work in Prince Albert in 1998 and has been a Peter Ballantyne urban band member ever since.
Way to Go Clarisse Lecoq! You are what Canadian National Identity is truly about. Way to go lady. Carry on being a champion for Justice and Free Speech for all.
The rights of Canadians to freely hold and express beliefs are being eroded at an alarming speed under the Trudeau government. Some of its recent decisions even require that Canadians renounce their most deeply held moral convictions and express opinions they disagree with.
In 2018, the Liberal government denied summer job funding to organizations, including charities, that would not sign an attestation supporting abortion. It also passed bill C-16 as part of a trend to force Canadians to express support for the existence of various gender identities beyond the biological categories of male and female, and to use pronouns demanded by those who identify with these other genders.
In addition to these assaults on conscience, the government launched a series of regulatory attacks on free speech on the internet and is pressuring social media companies, which are already censoring speech that isn’t politically correct, to crack down even more. It is also considering bringing back Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. This hate speech provision was repealed by the Conservative government in 2013 because it was being used arbitrarily to censor statements that offended some people on the internet.
In what appears to be a first step towards restricting our right to criticize some religions, it adopted M-103, a motion that condemns religious discrimination but only specifically mentions one religion, Islam, and without defining the term “Islamophobia.”
Finally, on university campuses, a growing number of faculty and administrators—those who should be fighting for open debate of controversial ideas—have become aggressive advocates for censorship.
History and social scientific research show that freedom of conscience and freedom of expression, when maximally protected, advance the intellectual life of a nation, foster greater ideological diversity and societal understanding, and nurture other freedoms necessary for a successful democracy.
This is why Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees citizens freedom of conscience and religion, as well as freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication.
What some people find politically incorrect, offensive or even hateful cannot serve as the legal basis for discrimination and censorship. Canadians should be able to enjoy maximum freedom of conscience and expression as guaranteed in Section 2 of the Charter.
- Restrict the definition of hate speech in the Criminal Code to expression which explicitly advocates the use of force against identifiable groups or persons based on protected criteria such as religion, race, ethnicity, sex, or sexual orientation.
- Repeal any existing legislation or regulation curtailing free speech on the internet and prevent the reinstatement of section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act.
- Repeal C-16 and M-103.
- Ensure that Canadians can exercise their freedom of conscience to its fullest extent as it is intended under the Charter and are not discriminated against because of their moral convictions.
- Withhold federal funding from any post-secondary institution shown to be violating the freedom of expression of its students or faculty.
Naw. Don’t worry my friend. We aren’t gonna’ let the political morons restrict your right to freely bark, chase rabbits , piss on trees or sneak a dump on old Charlies land. Its enough you wear the collar you’re doing.
Yeh, the politically correct puss heads are getting away with all that in the urbanized junklands. But, we have drawn a line they will never cross here in Canoe Lake. The days of Government Erosion of all our rights by heritage is ended. No more Government corruption crapping on our grass be it bushlands, prairies or urban reserves.
Dog gone it! Sure good talking with you again!
