"Monarchy's the best thing we've got -- short of making Don Cherry King of Canada"

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

I interview longtime journalist and political strategist, Ray Heard, about the removal of the Queen's portrait from "Global Affairs" headquarters.

Ray came to Canada in 1962 from South Africa, another commonwealth country. We discuss the significance of the decision, who might have made it and why, along with the reasons why those who have concerns, should speak up.

If you agree, don't forget to sign the petition at www.SaveTheQueen.ca and we will take that petition to Parliament when they reconvene.

Great works of art? Look like paint by numbers to me and sloppy ones at that

Why would we be asking God to “save the queen of England” when the Royal Family have direct ties to New World Order tyranny ? I have no problem with distancing ourselves from England. It will help us be more sovereign. People need to research the history of the Royal Family and how they relate to Hitler and Nazism and Globalist New World Order Oligarchs. However I in no way support this little Marxist Trudeau.

Justin’s apparent sire, Pierre and fellow travelers changed Canada from a system based on British Common law, into a French system of codified law. We lost our Common law rights and liberties in the process.
Oh Canada…God save the Queen.

“my concern is the sneaky way that Trudeau took down the painting, without any apparent consideration or consultation. How disrespectful to the Queen, and how disrespectful to Canadians. What a brat.”

I’ve said it before and will say it again. A Liberal is a Liberal no matter what level of government. I am waiting for secret laws to be passed by Trudeau, just as McGuinty did in Ontario:

McGuinty’s secret G20 law: illegal, unconstitutional

QUEEN’S PARK – New Democratic Leader Andrea Horwath says today’s report by the Ombudsman into the McGuinty Liberals’ secret G20 law confirms that the government failed to protect civil liberties during the international summit.
“Dalton McGuinty secretly passed a law that was illegal and unconstitutional and deliberately kept the facts about their illegal and unconstitutional measures from the public,” said Horwath. “What happened at the G20 summit was wrong and the Premier owes the province, and especially the people of Toronto, an apology.”

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association said McMurtry’s report vindicates what it has been saying all along, that the secret G20 law “precipitated violations of civil rights throughout the city.”

As other have pointed out our Queen is not the Queen of England or Britain, our Queen is the Queen of Canada. It just so happens that Queen Elizebeth II is also the Queen of these other places.

My concern is not whether or not we should continue to uphold our Monarchy. Although I personally feel that we should uphold it, I would understand if there was a movement to separate from the Monarchy of England. Rather, my concern is the sneaky way that Trudeau took down the painting, without any apparent consideration or consultation. How disrespectful to the Queen, and how disrespectful to Canadians. What a brat. I’m already counting the days until he’s gone.

Brian, what is up with your fixation on the queen? The queen does squat except to leech tax payer dollars. Oh wait, that’s not true. The queen showed us she could give the Heil Hitler salute. Maybe you can have Ezra go on another big rant on Heil Hitler.

Canada’s monarchy is only a ceremonial fixture. It could be done away with if both houses of Parliament and all ten provincial Legislatures agree to abolish it. Most of Europe has a parliamentary republic form of government, which could easily be adopted here in Canada. It 2015, not 1915!

I sure as hell don’t want PM Justin Trudeau and the Liberals shaping Canada under their vision! Because if they start messing with it the citizens’ are going to get freedom and rights stolen from us as the elites will create it in such a way that all the goodies will go to them and “We the People”, will end up being their paupers and slaves! Don’t allow Justy and his Liberal con-men to get in there or we are doomed! – If we ever did something like that it would only be somewhat safe when a Conservative or a Conservative Libertarian Party was in office and then we would need to shape as an even stronger style Free Republic – stronger than the American Republic – or I’ve heard a system like Switzerland has – whereby the citizens’ of Switzerland really do retain the the power of how the country is managed and run! This creating a new country that is free can be very tricky and technical and can backfire very quickly if one is not very, very careful!

Donald Perry said: “In a way the removal of the Queen’s portrait is similar to Obama sending the bust of Winston Churchill back to England when he got in.” Indeed. Hatred of democracy and freedom to be expected from lefties!

What a lot of people don’t realize is that Queen Elizabeth II is the Queen of Canada, as in, she’s a Canadian citizen and acts as the sovereign of canada. She is also the queen of the U.K. and other countries but she is OUR queen. Check out her own website: 1greenflash2015@gmail.com
Also, her husband is also a Canadian citizen, you can look up a number of years ago they wanted to offer him honorary Order of Canada but he refused because he’s a Canadian and should be given the actual Order of Canada, not honorary.
Canada is not subject to the uk or Britain in any way, but is 100% sovereign with our own queen

Yannie said, “The sooner we remove the monarchy, the more legitimate Canada becomes as a sovereign nation.”

Define “legitimate” in context of your statement.

Yannie Znayew……I am no supporter of British imperialism….but I would rather that grand old lady who bears a striking resemblance to my mother to be the figurehead than some drama queen like Mick Jager’s love child or some drag queen.

Fact is, the Lieberals would wish to make the Trudeau clan “royalty”. This will happen when the Lieberals manage to turn Canada into an “admired basic dictatorship” and appoint Justin as the first Czar!

Trudeau’s lineage goes back to owners of a chain of gas stations in Quebec that were sold to Imperial oil.

Trudeau’s family was rooted as entrepreneurial and self reliant. What an embarrassment their pot smoking dim witted distant relative has become, but it is amazing what a paid off media (by Demarais and Dussault families of Montreal) and a network of lawyers rooted in Montreal can do.

And the Demarais and Dussault families? Rooted as entrepreneurial and self reliant and now have graduated to thieves of tax dollars and thieves of government coffers.

The Monarchy is part of Canada’s heritage, We should keep it that way. Justin Trudeau may want to change things, just like his Father, who changed school history books. Trudeau may like to change the way things look but he cannot change History.
Small minds with power equal large mistakes.

God save our Queen.
Long live the Queen.
God please save our Canada from those who would destroy it and seek to take away our freedoms.
commented 2015-11-15 13:18:29 -0500
I mean even the current Queen, was alive when NEWFOUNDLAND joined the confederation.

Yannie: In what way is Canada not a legitimate sovereign Nation? In what way is British Imperialism dominant in Canada? Canada is a member of the British Commonwealth for many reasons, trade being one of the most important, but there are many more reasons. Should we leave the Commonwealth? What about all the other international trade organizations we belong to — we are not alone or isolated in this world — or is that what you mean by sovereign?
Tradition and Symbolism are part of the Canadian culture. Our parliamentary system is part of that. As most school children (used to) know the Queen’s constitutional role has been delegated to the Governor General of Canada to such a degree that the Governor General carries out the role of head of state even on the rare occasion when the Queen is in the country. But any authority over Canada by Britain ended a long time ago. You need to worry when you see Barack Obama’s or Ban Ki-moon’s picture going up in Government offices.

What the hell are you talking about? YANNIE… This country was built off of the monarchy, I mean even the last province didn’t join the confederation until 1949. Just in case you are to slow to understand, that province was Newfoundland. I mean they didn’t even join the confederation until 4 years after the second world war.

Then you talk about an LEGITIMATE CANADAWTF

Oh, great. Why hang onto the myth that British Imperialism is still dominant. It’s disturbing that Canada’s head of state isn’t even Canadian. The sooner we remove the monarchy, the more legitimate Canada becomes as a sovereign nation.

Trudeau is going to force feed more “dialect french” that no one else in the world speaks, including France.

Trudeau is going to pay for useless garbage like this and other nonsensical programs by raising taxes including the HST so he can pay off his “kick back network of friends”.

Get ready for the pain train Canada – you chose it.
commented 2015-11-15 11:14:40 -0500
Don Cherry – tells it like it is that is why many people do not like him.

Truth is a casualty of the lefty movement.

Freedom is a casualty of the lefty movement.

Control through restrictive laws is always increased under the lefty movement.

Taxes are always increased under the lefty movement.

Don for PM!!

The Trudeau government is going to move away from the symbols of the monarchy and towards communism. But it has to be done in slow steps. First is to get Canadians used to not seeing the symbols of the monarchy. The slowly to introduce symbols of communist regimes. Just my observation.

Question period with Don Cherry would be worth the watch!
