The Canada Political Thread

Agreed. Funny thing is, there isn't all that much truly 'conservative' about the PPC -- they are essentially a centrist party. But because of how radically left everything has shifted in Canada they are the Nazi white supremacists, naturally.
Currently, I don't really know what philosophical requirements there are to be a member, representative of the CPC. I imagine a slightly left-leaning person could be quite comfortable with the current leader.

I'm gonna admit, I heard some crazy things about Canada lately.

'Conversion Therapy'? Lol really? They're making it illegal for parents/people to try to convert their kids or people into heterosexual?

Lol...The end is near.

I have some friends in Canada and interested in visiting Toronto at least once in my lifetime, it looks like it's put on hold.

This coming Sunday (the 30th) there was a push to have restaurants in Quebec open up for seated dining (in contravention of lockdown rules) and not checking vaxx passes (in contravention of vaxx rules). It's been promoted for about a month, but so far I only know of maybe 7 (out of who knows how many thousands) in the Montreal area who intend to open. This morning I saw this notice from one of them, who will be bowing out:
In the last few weeks we have received a lot of pressure from the local authorities. We have been told that our liquor license and restaurant license will be revoked. We will receive fines for each individual and fines because we have started a movement. To clarify we were told by the health inspectors who paid us a visit on Saturday that for each restaurant who opens the fines for each individual in their restaurant will be given not only to them but to us as well! I know this is insanity! But we are living with unjust and insane rules. Our hope is to stop the discrimination and the shut downs and the lockdowns that are clearly not working. Our goal in this movement was not only to be able to reopen but to stop the discrimination. Clearly the vax code isn’t working since businesses are still being shut down. 2 years have gone by, our economy is ruined our citizens are depressed and and our businesses are failing. As you know the truck drivers all pulled together and will fight together in the upcoming days. As of today we do not have the same unity. Hopefully we will in the future, However we understand the high risks involved for small businesses and we are all for personal choice. We believe that we have done some good …We will not be opening our doors. We hope you all understand that we are a small family business and cannot afford to lose everything. We are already struggling with closures, loss of staff and rules that make it impossible to make a living. We wanted a non violent protest but unfortunately we cannot account for what will happen if we open. We thank everyone for the love support and messages we have received.

(n.b. the Quebec gov't will be allowing restaurants to reopen (limited seating and vaxxed only, naturally) on Monday the 31st)

"As of today we do not have the same unity (as the truckers)" - maybe because a trucker is his own employer/employee: restaurants have to rely on low-skilled labourers who are just as happy to sit at home and take in the same $ in gov't handouts. I have a friend who's parents had a restaurant (8-10 years ago) and even then she explained to me it was borderline impossible to find decent wait staff. Other people I know now tell me they call their (former) employees, imploring them to come back in to work - they're not interested, it's easier to sit at home and collect their "Covid pay".

It is very demoralizing to live in this country and it isn't simply the case of get up and leave. It seems like every foreign media commentator piles on Canada when they want to highlight some extreme idiocy. For some reason Australia and New Zealand seem to get a relative pass on this. For example, those two countries have extreme gun control while in Canada we can still own a range of semiauto rifles and pistols. That is why the truck convoy has me excited. It shows that many are not fine with what is happening in this country.

How many of those natives actually vote against liberals in Canada? I’m asking because this type of stuff is common in US politics as well. The black community for example, generally NOT for LGBTQ propaganda, and actually want more police in their neighborhoods, but they still seem locked into liberal emotional narratives (and handouts) and just overlook those things and keep voting for the people that implement policies they don’t like.
The brainwashing is heavy that democrats support tolerance and all republicans are racist. Not all black people believe this but if you don't take a few minutes to question the narrative and do your own research, you will believe it. Very few politicians in the USA openly support specific anti-black policies. The last one I know of was George Wallace.

If others on here can show me more recent examples, I would like to know. Supporting voter ID requirements, immigration controls, and equal admission policies that disregard race don't count by the way (despite CNN stating these are racist policies).

I am pleased when I see blacks that question this and state how democrats talk down to them and treat them as inferior. Sadly, this is not happening enough.

I am curious if Canada is similar with misusing the race card to attack politicians that don't follow the leftist agenda.

Almost all visible minorities (Canadian word for non-white) I know hate Trudeau and vote for right of centre parties. My Chinese friends all vote right and I understand many in the Indo-Canadian (India origin) community do likewise. We had a so-con candidate for the CPC party named Brad Trost at one time. He visited the Baptist church I was attending at the time at the behest of the Chinese congregation (many churches have services in various languages with their own pastors) where they prayed for him. Ironically he spent little or no time speaking with the English heavily boomer congregation. I would guess most North Asians in Canada (Western Canada at least) vote right. I don't think this is the case in the USA. The PPC party is also heavily diverse.

"Who are holding unacceptable views." If he wasn't such a [redacted], I would find that statement chilling.

Anyways, the truckers' GoFundMe has raised about $5 million so far. To put this number in perspective, the federal NDP spent a total of $10 million dollars in 2019. The truckers are raising funds faster than a major political party!

Haha. “Excuse me, do you have a license for those thoughts? Sorry, we only accept rampant sodomy, pedophilia, theft, destruction of churches, violence against white people, massive taxation, and soul crushing non-scientific ‘health’ mandates here.”

Dare to support traditional notions of sexuality and gender and you will go to jail in Canada

The prophet Isaiah wrote, "Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness". Canada has entered a dark age, criminalizing the notions of traditional family and sexuality.


The one dollar coin in Canada is called the “loonie.” The term should also apply to the new Canadian law that bans saying that heterosexuality is normal and that boys should identify as males and girls as females. Specifically, the new law, which took effect this month in Canada, bans “conversion therapy.” What is “conversion therapy”? According to the law, “conversion therapy” is:

a practice, treatment or service designed to
(a) change a person’s sexual orientation to heterosexual;
(b) change a person’s gender identity to cisgender;
(c) change a person’s gender expression so that it conforms to the sex assigned to the person at birth;
(d) repress or reduce non-heterosexual attraction or sexual behaviour;
(e) repress a person’s non-cisgender gender identity; or
(f) repress or reduce a person’s gender expression that does not conform to the sex assigned to the person at birth.

Truthfully, not many.
All the natives I know who work are pretty fierce conservatives. But sadly most are still alive off the government tit and will therefore just vote in the block that gives them money.

Ya i agree, i live in central Canada and work in Northern Canada. In both areas Natives are the majority population. Even if they have conservative tendencies, they overwhelming vote NDP in the west. The party that gives the most government gimmedats. On the plus side, voting for the NDP consistently splits the left wing vote between NDP and the liberals. This vote splitting is the only reason Right of center parties even sniff power and get it from time to time in this nation both federally and provincially.



I donated a 100 bucks to the convoy, can't wait to be on a terror/no fly list someday!

If there is Fed, Police, or antifa provoked violence on saturday, i fully expect the feds to implement this. The end life of democracy is always totalitarianism. But hey at least the good guys won WW2 right guys, anyone a high five? is there a boomer/silent gener in the house?

Just for any Americans reading this thread I thought I would explain the political parties in Canada.

People's Party of Canada (PPC) - newish political party. Nationalist, libertarian and in favour of reducing immigration. Leader is former CPC leadership candidate that had the highest share of the vote and was eventually forced out of party. Base seems to be young and ethnically diverse.

Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) - older right of centre party and official opposition. While many members and representatives are so-con, the leadership is always socially liberal and they try to focus on pocketbook issues. Base is heavily-aging boomer normies. Party tries to pander to so-called centre to trick people into thinking they are just a liberal party substitute. Allows very little free speech by elected representatives. We are told to vote for them or we will split the vote and Liberals will get in. If elected do virtually nothing for their so-con base.

Liberal - Party of government. Incompetent and has become far left on social issues, Corrupt. Our version of Democrats in USA but worse. No so-con voices allowed in party.

New Democratic Party (NDP) - far left socialist party that usually places third in elections. Think Bernie Sander but worse. Much of the party's historic base in unions and farming communities abandoned them in the late 80s for conservative parties as they shifted left on all social issues and these members became aware.

Read some of the responses.


According to the Ottawa Public Health website (someone please archive this before they change the rules):


[Close Contacts of those with COVID] do not need to self-isolate if they are:

  • Fully vaccinated* (if you work/volunteer or attend a highest risk setting*** you must not attend this setting for 10 days).

Isn't our PM fully vaxxed?
