“Canadian values” DO exist, but for how much longer?

Faith GoldyArchive

After Conservative leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch attracted national attention with a proposal to screen would-be newcomers to Canada for “anti-Canadian values," the great minds of our nation found themselves fixated on one question this week:

Which is the real threat to our nation: World views held by a faction of immigrants to Canada — or Kellie Leitch’s divisive politics?

The leaders of the left claim screening for anti-Canadian values is somehow racist, while contemptible conservatives warn that screening beliefs will inevitably lead us down a slippery Orwellian slope of punishment for thought crime.

Meantime, innumerable armchair pundits claim there’s no such thing as Canadian values, so, “Who is any government to judge?”

So, tonight a public service announcement:

There is such a thing as Canadian values.

And, a warning:

It is precisely because of the contemporary Canadian’s unwillingness to name and defend those values, that each one of our values has made its way onto an endangered species list.

Then: My guest is Iranian-American human rights activist and producer of the Glazov Gang Aynaz Anni Cyrus, who brings a dire warning about Sharia USA.

Bottom line. Islam and Sharia Law represent everything that is not only not Canadian values but also against the values of western civilisation.

The problem with Islam is that it is a totalitarian system of government with a religious basis dedicated to bringing the entire world under their system of government and ultra orthodox religion. Only foolish western politicians believe they can accommodate the not so peaceful religion of Islam in the west. Europe is a grand example of that failure. There is no possible accommodation with Islam. They believe in everything we find detestable and their hatred of us is well documented. Islam is a holistic theocracy that is anti-democratic with a fascist style of government that rejects and suppresses all other cultures and theologies.

We already punish people for thought crimes. The charge is actually called conspiracy. Where does Canada draw the line? It is a slippery slope indeed.

Good for you Stephenson, you raving heretic. Study some history, look past the end of your nose. Pull it out of your tush first. It’s not arbitrarily defined. It is written in blood on the foundation stones of this country.

Conservatives do not exhibit Canadian values and need to be deported immediately. It’s something that is completely arbitrarily defined, and that is how I define it.

We are slowly losing our “canadian values” as we head towards these socialist values which the world seems to be leaning towards. A good example would be the european union where all the countries involved have live by the values set up by the european union. Loss of each countries immigration laws, currency, etc. In other words they gave up their sovereignty.

Canadian Values:

1. ONLY FRENCH/ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE FIT TO RUN CANADA as they are only people allowed to be appointed to Ministerial positions or bureaucratic and managerial govt jobs.

- Remember the accusations of not being qualified when a unlingual Anglophone was appointed Minister – all because he could not speak French.

2. THE QUEBECOIS ARE THE SUPERIOR PEOPLE OF CANADA, thus we must do everything to keep Quebec from leaving, else the whole country would break up.


The Charter of Human Rights allows discrimination based on people being of the former group. Courts and Human Rights Commissions use such group designations to determine whether an individual was discriminated or not.

4. EQUALITY is defined by 3. where the latter “MARGINALIZED”/“HISTORICALLY DISADVANTAGED” group is considered to be given equality by giving them preferential treatment through policies like affirmative action hiring laws.


This is regularly backed up by the Courts and Human Rights Commissions.

6. DAVID SUZUKI’S ENVIRONMENTAL VALUES ARE Canadian Environmental values.

7. CANADIANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION unless they do not concur with Canadian Values in 1 to 6, or offends any person of a “marginalized”/“historically disadvantaged” group, where the Courts and Human Rights Commissions will charge the person with promotion of bigotry and/or hate.

Here are a few unofficial facts:
Faith, the guest Anni and a great number of Mature women know that Sharia Law is terrible, especially for women.
Trudeau is importing Sharia Law, and young women were his most consistent voters.
Why don’t the knowledgeable women inform the younger women about the upcoming Sharia problems, and Trudeau’s involvement?
I’m not saying that this is entirely a woman’s problem, but in other situations like sex education and sports, mature women teach uninformed women the right way to go.

Canadian Values coming from a lefty has no meaning because their words have no meaning. They change on a daily basis. They use the same words you are using but they do not mean the same thing you mean by them. This is as true theologically as it is politically. It is an insidious way of gaining favour with their opponents. You think you’re on the same page but you eventually find out you’re not. By then they have usually deceived a good proportion of the low information, entertainment based, pseudo-intellectuals.

This was one of PET’s gifts to Canadians. Multiculturalism was disguised as a gift of enlightenment, and generosity. It was a mask for global tyranny.

I swear that I can hear the skirl of the bagpipes in the distance.

If it were not for Politically Correct multiculturalism we would still have a country and a culture.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me….
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T’was Grace that taught…
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear…
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares…
we have already come.
T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me…
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be…
as long as life endures.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years…
bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise…
then when we’ve first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me….
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

“The Battle Hymn Of The Republic”

Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage
Where the grapes of wrath are stored
He has loosed the fateful lightening
Of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on I have seen him in the watch-fires Of a hundred circling camps They have builded him an altar In the evening dews and damps I have read his righteous sentence By the dim and flaring lamps His day is marching on Glory, glory, hallelujah Glory, glory, hallelujah Glory, glory, hallelujah His truth is marching on I have read a fiery gospel Writ in burnish’d rows of steel As ye deal with my contemptors So with you my grace shall deal Let the hero, born of woman Crush the serpent with his heel Since my God is marching on He has sounded forth the trumpet That shall never call retreat He is sifting out the hearts of men Before His judgment-seat Oh, be swift, my soul To answer him be jubilant, my feet Our God is marching on Glory, glory, hallelujah Glory, glory, hallelujah Glory, glory, hallelujah His truth is marching on His truth is marching on

Onward, Christian Soldiers
The United Methodist Hymnal Number 575
Text: Sabine Baring-Gould, 1834-1924
Music: Arthur S. Sullivan, 1842-1900
Tune: ST. GERTRUDE, Meter: 65.65 D with Refrain

1. Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
forward into battle see his banners go!
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before. 2. At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee; on then, Christian soldiers, on to victory! Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise; brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise. (Refrain) 3. Like a mighty army moves the church of God; brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod. We are not divided, all one body we, one in hope and doctrine, one in charity. (Refrain) 4. Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane, but the church of Jesus constant will remain. Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail; we have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail. (Refrain) 5. Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng, blend with ours your voices in the triumph song. Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King, this through countless ages men and angels sing. (Refrain)

Aynaz Anni Cyrus is right, this Sharia push is the fault of the western people. We have put up with it. We have paved the way for it by allowing ourselves to be brainwashed into believing, allowing/turning a blind eye, to Sharia.
There is NOTHING less Canadian than Islam, nothing. Aynaz Anni Cyrus, a survivor of Sharia, says Islamic values are in no way compatible with western values, and she is 100% correct. She came to the west to get away from the oppression only to find it is being embraced here because of laziness, stupidity and moral posing.

I give it 5 Steve. Heck go to any city, Sharia has already been introduced. Now we get to watch it grow, and under Justin, grow it will.

At some point in a kids life - they get biblical—— and wonder is "This all there is "? I am truly afraid that all that will be allowed is Islam.

I would appreciate if someone could instruct me — as to how to tell my kids that ’not ’caring is Wrong. Maybe they are right. The Kids sure are Ripe for the the Picking.

liberal party policies + media party + 60 years = Canadian values for Canadians who are too fucking stupid to understand that this has happened.

By todays standards —you probably are a Terrorist. Would you shoot a Muslim that decided to clitorize your Daughter ? It is a very fine line—— a Terrorist or a Patriot.

@drew Wakariuk
Yes, I as well. I assume I will have a hell of time trying to explain the concept of ‘humour’ to a judge of some sort… probably have my firearms license taken away and put on a domestic terrorist watch list.

I really don’t care anymore.
