Canada is fully reopening this weekend.
Let's hope this spreads around the globe, as Canada has been one of the most strict countries when it comes to Covid.
The last time I checked they required full vaccination, *including boosters*. This is great news.
Great news perhaps, but I won't be traveling north of the border any time soon for two reasons; one is a matter of simple practicality and the other is a matter of principle.
Simply put, I cannot feel safe in a country that was so eager to contravene the laws laid out in its founding documents in order to:
• declare martial law in response to successful peaceful protests
• to slap "Police" stickers on private military contractors (i.e. mercenaries) who were dispatched to use brutal force against peaceful protesters
• to illegally seize and freeze the assets of peaceful protesters
Canada is a place where the rule of law, domestic or international, simply does not apply. What will stop them from detaining and forcibly injecting citizens of other countries? With a zeal perhaps unmatched by any nation in the world, Canada has demonstrated a bizarre and fanatical obsession with administering the poison injections to each and every one of its citizens with no regard for the burden this imposes on them. It is an authoritarian failed democracy in which all rights are suspended and are violated with no warning on the whim of a globalist controlled WEF puppet autocrat. Why would any sane and reasonable person voluntarily enter such a hostile and dangerously volatile environment? It is perhaps as safe to travelers as Somalia or North Korea in my estimation. I would argue that anyone feeling safe in this environment lacks the shrewd tactical awareness and understanding of day to day reality that will be necessary to survive in an increasingly invasive and authoritarian post-virus global regime.
As a matter of principle, I would no sooner contribute to the economy of this evil and corrupt regime than I would contribute to that of our greatest ally, the ayatollah, the house of Saud, the Kim dynasty, the CCP, or any of the other bad actors currently on the global stage. Doing so would demonstrate approval and provide material support for its morally reprehensible and indefensible policies. How could anyone do so in good conscience?
The only way this might possibly change is with the most sincere and contrite apology ever offered by a sovereign nation, one which acknowledges its deeply flawed responses and admits to being swept up in a misdirected and illogical frenzy motivated by fear and globalist pressure. This alone would be insufficient if not accompanied by restitution for those injured by the injections and whose lives were destroyed by misguided policies along with swift and brutal punishment for those who created and perpetrated these policies at all levels that would make the Nuremburg trials look like traffic court. This apology and subsequent actions would have to make the self-flagellation performed by Germany resulting from its actions in the 1930's and 40's seem like a simple "excuse me" when mistakenly brushing someone on a crowded sidewalk by comparison.
I have long wanted to travel to Banff, and to explore the northern reaches of Quebec and Ontario in the winter. All of that can wait, perhaps for the rest of my life until wrongdoing is admitted and justice is served. In the meantime, I can find plenty of other places to explore, or I can just not travel at all and focus on spiritual and intellectual journeys instead.
