Canadian Cringe: Hope in High Heels

There have been tyrants more brutal than the moonbats running the USA and Canada, but none more embarrassing to live under:

Fox News reports:

Members of Canada’s Parliament donned the heels as part of the “Hope in High Heels” event sponsored by Halton Women’s Place, a women’s shelter in Ontario, to bring awareness to violence targeting women.

Speaking of violence against women and men wearing their clothes,

News of the “Hope in High Heels” event came just two days after a self-identified transgender woman in Ontario, Canada, was arrested Tuesday after allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in a women’s shelter.

Police began investigating Desiree Anderson, 32, also known as Cody D’Entremont, on April 4 following a report from a woman who claimed the suspect had climbed into bed with her and sexually assaulted her while she was staying a women’s shelter in Windsor.

Liberals ask us to believe that there is an epidemic of violence not by transsexuals as in the real world (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, etc.) but against them. If virtue signaling displays like the one of above spread, we may be subjected to the sight of Charles Schumer sashaying in full drag queen regalia.

Canada May Criminalize Criticism of Drag Queen Story Hours

You can have the fundamental human right of free speech, or you can have what liberals call “LGBT rights.” Canada may opt for the latter:

Canadian politician and Member of Parliament Kristyn Wong-Tam recently introduced legislation that would criminalize making “offensive remarks” within 100 meters of Drag Queen Story Hours in the Ontario province of Canada.

Wong-Tam’s bill seeks to establish “2SLGBTQI+ Community Safety Zones” around locations holding Drag Queen Story Hours, where it would be considered a criminal offense to make statements against the events. The safety zone would last for the duration of each event, and anything deemed as “anti-2SLGBTQI+ harassment, intimidation, and hate speech” could incur a penalty of up to $25,000 if prosecuted.

That is to say, it will be illegal to say anything militant perverts regard as resistance to their grooming of children.

As with all things progressive, the zone will expand in terms of time and space, as will the punishment. Soon comes serious jail time for saying anything anywhere in Canada at any time that LGBT activists and child-grooming drag queens don’t like.

Regarding the alphabet soup Canadians are to be force-fed:

According to the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario, “2SLGBTQI” stands for “two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and intersex.” The “+” symbol refers to “other people who identify as a sexual or gender minority.”

At the current rate of decay, people who are not sexually deranged degenerates will soon qualify as “+”.

Like the carbon offsets that call to mind paid indulgences, this is a throwback to Medieval times, but centered on a very different religion. As Chris Gast of Right to Life of Michigan observes,

“It’s the same thing as abortion facility buffer zones. It’s the return of blasphemy laws, centered around their sacraments and where they are practiced.”

Everything profane is sacred to leftists. By the same token, everything sacred is profane. That which they cannot infiltrate, corrupt, and subvert, they will directly abolish.

Wong-Tam has also introduced other pro-transgender legislation, including a 2022 bill to create a provincial “gender-affirming healthcare” advisory committee.

Objecting to being forced to finance grotesque sex-change operations that will inevitably be inflicted on children is an example of hate speech.

Drag Summer Camp for Canadian Kids

When you tolerate depravity, it escalates — especially when the ruling class rams it down your throat for ideological purposes. Already this has reached such an extreme in Canada that Carousel Theatre for Young People is offering Junior Drag Camp and Teen Drag Camp, explicitly for the purpose of allowing perverts to corrupt children ages 7–11 and 12–17, respectively:

Join some of Vancouver’s most amazing drag artists and learn how drag can brighten up your life! You might be wondering, is drag for kids? Drag is for everyone! …

All students will be provided with a Drag Makeup Starter Kit!

The teaching faculty at Carousel Theatre includes Winter PreTeen & Teen Lead Instructor Ian Butcher. With a name like that, he ought to work in Drag Summer Camp, considering what happens to the genitals of boys who are successfully groomed by transsexuals. If only they offered “gender-affirming healthcare,” his name would be more fitting still.

Support for the Carousel Theatre is provided by the City of Vancouver, Canada Council for the Arts, British Columbia Arts Council, the government of British Columbia, and the government of Canada. That is, it is provided by Canadian taxpayers on a coercive basis.

Student Arrested After Saying Men and Women Differ

Look around at woke America under President Brandon and you might be tempted to say it can’t get any worse. Then look to the north and you will see that it can. Quoting the Bible to back up incontrovertible biological fact in the context of defending women from perverts can get a student dragged off from his Catholic school in handcuffs in the moonbat police state Canada:

[Josh] Alexander was a student at a Canadian Catholic high school in Ontario until he spoke his mind over concerns of men in women’s restrooms at the institution.

Distinguishing men from women and believing God created only two genders, he suggested, eventually led authorities to arrest and charge him for the offense.

He came on Tucker Carlson to explain:

“Female students complained to me that they were concerned because males were using their washrooms. This turned into a debate at the school. I stated my opinion on it, and I used Scripture to back it up,” Alexander said.

“They removed me from the building for the remainder of the year and, when I attempted to attend class, I was arrested and charged,” he continued.

He wanted to make his case to school administrators, but they refused to give him a hearing. Maybe if he tried wearing gargantuan prosthetic breasts

His lawyer James Kitchen keeps up Alexander’s spirits with a lively sense of humor:

“[W]e think there’s been religious discrimination on the basis of Josh’s Christian religious beliefs, so we’re going to file a complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission.”

If only Alexander were Jewish and lived in 15th century Spain, he could bring his complaints to the Inquisition. Its views on religious liberty were comparable to those of the leftists who impose their agenda through Canada’s Orwellian Human Rights Commissions.

As noted earlier, because Alexander is enrolled at the supposedly Catholic school, he is not allowed to attend other schools, limiting his future career prospects. Under totalitarianism, the ideologically noncompliant are marginalized.

Catholic Student Excluded for Thoughtcrime

The FBI has been spying on “Radical Traditionalist Catholics,” who are deemed by Democrats to be a threat to security. If only he were American, the Mark Houck treatment could be applied to Josh Alexander:

An Ontario high school student is not allowed to attend his Catholic school for the remainder of the year because he expressed the belief that God created only two sexes, with the school arguing that his presence would be “detrimental to the physical and mental well-being” of transgender students.

He must have been reading subversive literature, like Genesis 1:27, Genesis 5:2, or Matthew 19:4, all of which state plainly that God created us male and female.

Josh Alexander, 16, has not been permitted to attend St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew, Ontario since last November when he organized a protest in support of the right of female students to have single-sex washrooms after two girls had confided in him that they were uncomfortable sharing spaces with trans-identified male students.

In our benighted past, defending girls from having their private spaces invaded by male perverts would have been encouraged and admired. Those unwoke times will be erased.

Alexander had also expressed his belief that there are only two immutable sexes during a law class discussion, saying that he felt that males belong in male washrooms and females belong in female washrooms because identity doesn’t change biology.

This assertion of objective fact was denounced as “offensive” and “bullying.”

If a Catholic school won’t allow Christianity, why would it allow biology? Only one viewpoint is permitted where moonbats prevail: moonbattery.

First, the Grade 11 student was suspended, but then following the end of his suspension, the principal made the decision to “exclude” him for the remainder of the year. The two amount to the same thing, but an exclusion is not technically disciplinary.

Exclusion is what liberals mean when they bark about “inclusion.”

An advantage of excluding Alexander instead of extending his suspension is that it helps educrats pretend that they are not punishing him for his conventional beliefs, but rather protecting sacred transsexuals from having their feelings hurt by exposure to a practicing Christian.

While he is excluded, Alexander cannot attend any school, since he is enrolled at the “Catholic” school. At this point in the decline of education, that might be for the best.

Canadian Hotlines Help You Commit Suicide

In a dystopia, everything gets turned upside down and backward. For example, in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, book-burning firemen start fires rather than put them out. Another example is Canada under moonbat rule, where suicide hotlines help you commit suicide:

MAID (medical assistance in dying) has now grown so popular that Canada has both anti-suicide hotlines to try and stop people killing themselves, as well as pro-suicide hotlines for people wanting to end their lives.

More upside-down backwardism:

Obstetrician Stefanie Green … revealed that she’s helped 300 people die in Canada’s controversial MAID program

She uses the term ‘deliveries’ to describe both her work helping women give birth – and people end their lives.

If helping the mentally ill to pretend they are members of the opposite sex can be called “gender affirmation,” why can’t ushering people into death instead of life be called a delivery?

The Crime and Punishment of Jordan Peterson

At first glance, it is hard to see what is so controversial about Jordan Peterson. He is a soft-spoken psychologist who provides common sense self-help advice to young men. His political views are not extreme. However, his refusal to recite “2 + 2 = 5” on orders from the thought police got him kicked off Twitter under its previous ownership. Now, he has been sentenced to reeducation camp for criticizing Canada’s leftist government:

The College of Psychologists of Ontario ordered the best-selling author and Daily Wire+ host to undergo “social media communications retraining” or face a hearing on the potential suspension of his license.


Peterson vowed not to participate in the process and decried the effort to stifle free speech.

That’s the attitude that got him in trouble in the first place.

Peterson wrote an open letter to Canada’s squishy soft pretty boy despot, Justin Trudeau:

“I simply cannot resign myself to the fact that in my lifetime I am required to resort to a public letter to the leader of my country to point out that political criticism has now become such a crime in Canada that if professionals dare engage in such activity, government-appointed commissars will threaten their livelihood and present them with the spectacle of denouncement and political disgrace,” Peterson wrote. “There is simply and utterly no excuse whatsoever for such a state of affairs in a free country.”

By “free country,” he must mean “soft tyranny.” When soft inevitably transitions to hard, people like Peterson will end up in gulags or face firing squads instead of having their licenses suspended.

His crimes:

Peterson’s latest alleged transgressions include retweeting Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre’s criticism of Trudeau, blasting Trudeau’s former senior aide, Gerald Butts, and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, tweeting opposition to a plan by Ottawa police to take custody of the children of the Trucker Convoy protesters, and telling Joe Rogan’s podcast audience that acceptance of radical gender theory is a sign of “civilizations collapsing” and that climate change models are unreliable.

Past crimes include pointing out that plus-sized swimsuit model Yumi Nu on the cover of Sports Illustrated for purposes of political correctness is “not beautiful” and that “no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”

Styxhexenhammer666 observes that Canada’s thought police are applying a policy employed by repressive regimes like Saddam Hussein’s by trying to force him to pay for the bullet used to execute him. Specifically, he is supposed to pay for his ChiCom-style struggle session:

Regarding Peterson’s crime and punishment, this hits the mark:

“The whole point is to be as arbitrary and as opaque as possible so that they can always nail you.”

That’s why there are no actual laws in Oceania in 1984. It’s why an established sportscaster like Gary Hahn can get indefinitely suspended for saying “illegal alien.”

Canada Offers Extermination as Solution to Poverty

Canada’s MAID (medical assistance in dying) policy is good for more than exterminating the mentally ill and quieting bothersome disabled veterans. It is also the Final Solution for poverty.

Daily Mail has the bullet points:

• A doctor approved Les Landry’s application for medical assistance in dying, despite him saying poverty is a major factor in the decision to end his own life

• Landry, 65, awaits verdict of second doctor who visited his home on Wednesday

• Landry says if the second approval isn’t given, he will ‘shop’ for another doctor willing to sign it off – something that’s legal under Canada’s euthanasia laws

• He said benefit cuts mean ‘sooner or later I just won’t be able to afford to live’

• Shocking case lays bare the relaxed approach to euthanasia in Canada, where experts say ‘choosing to die is more accessible’ than support for disabled people

“I told it to the doctor, I want to live. I don’t want to die,” says Landry, who has been able to live with epilepsy and diabetes. But he can’t afford life, so alternate arrangements need to be made.

When Big Government rather than voluntary charity cares for the needy, crude one-size-fits-all solutions eventually degenerate into whatever is expedient. To the government, we aren’t people; we are just numbers. As a Founding Father of progressivism famously said, “One death is a tragedy; 1 million is a statistic.”

Exterminating the poor is quintessentially progressive, in that it is the sort of policy Trudeau et al. would accuse their opposition of secretly wanting to implement, meanwhile implementing it themselves while pretending to champion the poor. If they were not able to dominate the media, there would be very few progressives.

Canadian Vet Offered MAID in Place of Wheelchair Lift

If you serve the government, maybe it will take care of you. Then again, maybe it won’t — unless by “taking care” you mean offering to kill you after you are no longer useful.

Retired Canadian Army Corporal Christine Gauthier has been trying to get Veterans Affairs Canada to help her install a wheelchair lift in her home since 2017. A VAC caseworker suggested solving the problem through euthanasia:

After years of frustrating delays in getting the home lift, Gauthier says the caseworker told her: ‘Madam, if you are really so desperate, we can give you medical assistance in dying now.’

This isn’t the first time a Canadian vet has been offered suicide as a healthcare option. Whether they ever fought a foreign enemy comprising a more direct threat to Canadians than their own government is doubtful.

The scandal emerged a week after Canada’s veterans affairs minister confirmed that at least four other veterans were similarly offered access to Canada’s Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) law in response to their troubles…

Gauthier was injured in an Army training accident in 1989, suffering permanent damage to her knees and her spine.

She has made the best of her situation, competing in paralympic games. However, some might decide that her life is not worth living.

Starting next year, those deemed to be suffering from mental illness will also qualify for MAID. No one that mentally ill would be competent to make such a decision. However, Canada has plenty of bureaucrats to nudge them in the correct direction — or just make the decision for them.

No word on whether Justin Trudeau considers opposition to his Covid tyranny to indicate mental illness.

There are already signs the system is failing some Canadians, with reports of people receiving approval for assisted suicides for diabetes or homelessness.

Assisted suicide solves all sorts of problems. Some would call it the Final Solution.

Word “Brownie” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

As we work toward utopia, the Newspeak Dictionary grows ever thinner, with the eventual objective of reducing human language to inarticulate grunts so that no one can say anything offensive. Canada leads the way by abolishing the term “Brownie.”

Background on Canadian Brownies:

Girl Guides of Canada is a founding member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and was founded in 1910. The Brownie is a branch of Girl Guides that teaches outdoor safety and other life skills to girls ages 7-8.

Jill Zelmanovits, CEO of Girl Guides of Canada, explains why Brownies must no longer be called “Brownies”:

“Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at Girl Guides calls on us to listen to the lived experiences of racialized girls and take action to safeguard these commitments.”

Zelmanovits says that calling Brownies “Brownies” has “caused them personal harm.”

You almost have to admire the creativity of moonbats who find evidence in support of the Cultural Marxist narrative no matter how obvious it is that no such evidence exists.

As Robert Conquest observed, any organization that is not explicitly right-wing soon becomes left-wing. The Girl Guides are no exception. This is not the first time they have made fools of themselves with their obsequious virtue signaling:

Girl Guides has previously taken other steps leaders felt allowed for an inclusive environment, including accepting transgender girls into the organization.

“Transgender girls” by definition are not girls. How can they call themselves “Girl Guides” if they do not even know what a girl is?

No doubt calling a flat bar of chocolate cake a “brownie” is also racist, especially since brownies have been associated with drug use.

However, calling little boys “Brownies” might be excused, so long as the intent is to demasculinize them in accordance with the liberal agenda.

Trudeau Promises to Suppress Free Speech Online

Ireland is not the only country hurtling toward totalitarianism in the name of political correctness. Metrosexual weenie Justin Trudeau presents more authoritarianism at the B20:

“While always ensuring and defending free speech,” dissident speech will be suppressed in the name of protecting crybullies because “it cannot by okay to bully and attack people online.”

Canada Moves to Exterminate Mentally Ill

It has become axiomatic: whatever Democrats accuse their opponents of, they are guilty of themselves. But even if liberals constantly call their opponents Nazis, surely they aren’t Nazis themselves — except maybe sometimes, as when Canada moves to expand medical assistance in dying (MAID):

Bill C-7 would allow individuals seeking MAID to apply solely on the basis of a mental disorder. Prior to the bill’s passage, MAID eligibility was based on having a “grievous and irremediable medical condition,” according to a report from the Canadian government on the practice.

Likewise, the Third Reich’s preferred treatment for those with debilitating mental problems was the final solution.

The mentally ill aren’t the only problematic people who can be nudged out of existence:

Creighton School of Medicine professor Charles Camosy said Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the bill would allow “mature minors” to be euthanized by state doctors without the consent of their parents.

If you would surgically disfigure children on behalf of the LGBT agenda, you probably won’t have moral qualms about killing them outright.

Camosy argued that the MAID practice exists for several groups already.

“We’ve got the homeless, we talked about that last time. The poor. The disabled. Those with chronic pain. And then right before coming on, I researched the physicians group in Quebec that wants to kill newborn infants. That’s what’s coming next,” he told host Tucker Carlson.

Some of the critters manage to slip past the abortionist. Can’t have that. They could go on to emit carbon for decades, which would be offensive to the climate.

The medical humanities professor said health care has been “hyper-secularized” in recent years and is based on “cost-benefit analysis.”

Combine socialized medicine with the marginalization of Christian values and you get extermination as “healthcare.”

Already, a Canadian vet seeking treatment for PTSD and a traumatic brain injury was offered assisted suicide by Veterans Affairs Canada.

Led by Justin Trudeau, Canada is at the vanguard of moonbattery. But Democrat-controlled parts of the USA do not lag far behind:

Oregon was the first state in the United States to approve medically assisted suicide, with a law going into effect in 1997. California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, Vermont, Washington state and Washington, D.C., have approved similar laws…

Conservatives are characterized as prolife not because it is an unusual position to be in favor of human existence, but because the opposition is prodeath.

By the way, some argue that racism should be officially recognized as a mental health problem. Others argue that a preference for lower taxes is racist. You can see where this is heading.

Canadian Vet With PTSD Offered Assisted Suicide

One nice thing about Canada is that having succumbed to moonbattery more quickly than the USA, it provides a window into our future under liberal rule. This story indicates where healthcare and the treatment of veterans are headed:

A Canadian Forces veteran seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and a traumatic brain injury was shocked when he was unexpectedly and casually offered medical assistance in dying by a Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) employee…

The unnamed vet has been recovering from injuries and trauma received in the line of duty. Being told that he might want to just die was not helpful.

The department also did not answer Global News’ questions about how many times assisted dying has been offered to veterans through this particular VAC employee or others at Veterans Affairs, or what guidance employees have been given about providing such advice.

Assisted suicide is the closest thing to medical innovation you can expect under socialism. Its purpose is to make free healthcare affordable.

Kamloops Mass Grave Hate Hoax

The supposed mass grave of oppressed indigenous children at the Kamloops school in British Columbia is among the grandest hate hoaxes of recent times:

A mass grave filled with the remains of 215 Indigenous children, some as young as three, has been found on the grounds of a former residential school in Canada…

The grisly discovery in the interior of southern British Columbia was made at the former Kamloops Indian residential school using ground-penetrating radar…

The school was open between 1890 and 1978 and ran by the Roman Catholic Church as part of a network of institutions across Canada…

This shocking revelation was aggressively seized upon by moonbats as proof of the nefariousness of Caucasians, Christianity, and Western Civilization:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decreed, partly at the request of tribal leaders, that all flags on federal buildings fly at half-mast. The Canadian government and provincial authorities pledged about $320 million to fund more research and in December pledged another $40 billion involving First Nations child-welfare claim settlements that partially compensate some residential school attendees. Pope Francis issued a formal apology on behalf of the Catholic church, which ran many of the residential school facilities and asked for God’s forgiveness.

Francis should pray for Catholics to forgive him for reflexively siding against the Church he is supposed to represent.

Kamloops helped motivate a tidal wave of arson and vandalism unleashed against churches across Canada. But like everything else leftists want badly to believe in, Kamloops is a lie.

Ground-penetrating radar has supposedly revealed another 800 buried children. But well over a year since the supposed mass grave was revealed, no actual bodies have been found. It appears to be nothing more than an old septic system.

Canada’s Rebel News pulls back the curtain:

If something sounds too good to be true from the viewpoint of the liberal narrative, that is because it is not true.

No matter. The drive-by media made the desired impression. Plenty of people heard the original story. Few will ever know it was a lie. In politics, perception is reality.
