Liberal journalists force a political billboard to be taken down. Is that the state of Canadian democracy?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


By now you've probably seen that billboard in the news. It looks like it's officially from Maxime Bernier, the leader of the People’s Party, but it was actually produced by a registered third party campaign group in the upcoming election.

These billboards simply read, “Say no to mass immigration.” They don’t say "no to any immigration" or even "no to refugees.”

By "mass immigration," they mean open borders-style immigration, like at the Roxham Road crossing. At least 50,000 fraudulent "refugees" have already walked across that illegal border crossing from New York state into Quebec.

Ahmed Hussen, Trudeau's Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (and himself a Muslim refugee from Somalia) plans to bring more than a million more immigrants to Canada in the next three years, 40 per of them being uneconomic — they’re either old and sick or illiterate or refugees. So, he's literally bringing in long line-ups for our hospitals, food banks and schools.

As Angus Reid’s poll shows, most Canadians think we have too many immigrants.

When this billboard went up, it wasn't a shock to normal Canadians, only to the official keepers of ideas, both Liberals and some timid Conservatives.

So they went on a campaign all weekend, huffing and puffing about how outrageous this billboard was.

At first, the billboard company, Pattison Outdoor, resisted this fake controversy, but within days, they posted a grovelling apology and ripped up their contract with the third party group.

And then — even more bizarrely — the third party group itself collapsed. Frank Smeenk, the head of True North Strong & Free Advertising Corp., disavowed "any sympathy with or support for the views expressed by donors who paid for and selected the content of their advertising."

This doesn’t make any sense at all — other than the one explanation that I can think of:

The donors were so bullied by the Media Party, they thought: I can’t participate in democracy anymore.

This isn’t just the deplatforming of a billboard; this isn’t just the silencing of the majority of Canadians point of view.

It’s the deliberate conditioning of Canadians that they must shut up and withdraw from the political playing field if they don’t buy into the narrative.

You can disagree with the billboard, and Bernier. But to silence him — and to shut down the billboard company and to scare the donors?

Yeah, that’s not Canadian. At least that’s not what Canadian used to mean...

It’s a foregone conclusion that this next election cycle is more than ‘fixed’…and the destruction of Canada is a sure thing with the ‘re-election’ of the Trudeau globalist scum.
OK…I can accept the inevitable.
Collectively, Canadians have proven themselves weak, stupid and not deserving of a country like Canada…was….I wonder if the left can accept the consequences of their actions.
When the destruction is upon us there will also be a period of anarchy, lawlessness and chaos – that will be the ‘signal’ for the globalists to ‘step in’ and ‘save us’. Classic Hegelian Dialectic!
To look on the bright side of that nightmare cloud, there is a silver lining.
All those nasty trolls – and other avowed enemies of Canada – who are getting away scot free with their treason, criminality and general offensiveness – for now – may be tracked down and dealt with by some good citizens, during that period of lawlessness and chaos…it’s inevitable, and a direct result of the troll’s predilection for the worst kind of hatefulness and lies, and their concerted attempts to derail the good guys trying to help and save Canada.
Yuk it up while you can, your days are numbered you friend-of-Trudeau, shitstain troll scum…justice will be done, one way or another…because everybody is going to have to meet their maker and explain to Him why…

Ahhh I see there are a few WoKe SJW’s coming out and spewing their higher morals and beliefs without using critical thinking. The moment you guys and gals start using words like “racist”, homophobe", and “xenophobe”, you have killed the ability to engage in a thoughtful and logical debate, and those words carry no shame or meaning anymore due to the fact you idiots toss them around willy nilly, we see through you and your scam.
Multiculturalism is a failed experiment and does not work
Borders work
Controlled and carefully vetted immigration does work
There is nothing wrong with saying NO TO MASS IMMIGRATION
commented 2019-08-28 10:26:20 -0400
Just say no to Trudeau and mass immigration!!
Say yes to sending Hussen back to Somolia!!

At least the MSM has finally given Mr. Bernier and his party some exposure. I am sure most Canadians can see the validity of the message and hopefully become more aware of the PPC platform.

How will we accommodate all Junior’s migrants? That is just so simple Harley, all our money Trudeau will give to them.

You are a nut if you think:
open unlocked doors to your home and letting in as many people as the house will hold. The food will never run out. Everyone will get along.
Leave the keys in your car unlocked, it will be returned to you full of gas.
Health care is free. We have no one in need already in this country.
Raise taxes on everything for those working people they want a carbon tax.
Working people don,t mind paying for all the free stuff for people who have never contributed a penny.

Great show.

Two comments: 1)When you sell out your country in the name of political correctness, when you allow people who don’t share your values or give a shit about your laws to invade you, don’t be surprised when they tell you to f*ck off. 2) Remember how to boil a frog.
commented 2019-08-28 08:34:31 -0400
How will we accommodate the building of a million homes? 40% to be built for free and lived in for free. A million new health care users on an already overburdened system.
1.4 million dollars to homeless in Toronto over five years. Billions sent to other countries. Nothing for Canadians. Free loaders galore crossing our border and given instant housing (HOTEL,s) free money as our own people wait on lists.
Take care of our own people first!
commented 2019-08-28 06:27:47 -0400
Now, our corrupt Perp Minister wants to bring in a further one million migrants over the next three years, 40% of whom will be “non-economic”.
Allow me to provide a translation from Liberalese, “they will not be working, they are here for the free stuff”.
The far left Liberals themselves call these immigration levels “the most ambitious levels in recent history”.(their words not mine).
Hallway health care is quickly becoming the standard in Ontario, expect things to get worse, much worse.
🤢🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤢

Canada’s current migration crisis is not just a matter of the total numbers, it is also a matter of the failure of the Liberals to properly vet the tens of thousands of illegal migrants crossing our Southern border at Roxham Road.
At least during the Harper years efforts were made to properly screen migrants prior to their admission to the country.
After Junior’s open invitation to migrants, the border guards at Roxham Road perform a cursory interview and then release the illegal migrants entering our country into Canada.
In addition approximately 80 per cent of the Syrian migrants, haphazardly brought to Canada by our hapless PM, are still not working, placing further stress on our already broken health care system and other public services. Other jurisdictions have started to return this type of migrant to their countries of origin where conditions allow. Not a bad idea.

Nice to see that long time far left troll, Sean Penson, is back to regale us all with his surreal perception of the state of current affairs.
No, there is nothing racist or homophobic about the billboard. It merely triggered the usual knee jerk, faux outrage from the censorious left.
Sean has always reminded me of the Air Farce “Confused Philosopher”.

Andy Neimers,

My beloved British Columbia was besieged by a whites only immigration policy throughout the 19th century, well into the 1960s.

Asian people’s, such as from China, Japan, Korea and the Indian subcontinent were expressly forbidden from immigrating here.

Canada must never ever go along that horrifying path again.

Never; that’s why I’m a Conservative party member, but this time #IStandwithTrudeau

Troll Penson. stop repeating a lie.
Its MASS immigration the PPC is against not sensible immigration.
Only a kook would leave all their doors and windows open, invite the world over and tell them to help themselves. It’s not fair to anyone. Everybody loses.
commented 2019-08-28 02:51:22 -0400
Don’t go “simple” on me Sean Penson!… There is not one iota of an indication that Maxime Bernier and the PPC are against ALL immigration… They are simply saying that immigration to Canada should be for our nation’s benefit and controlled as to which immigrants benefit our nation… It’s no bloody different than the post WWII selective process when hundreds of thousands of political refugees, fleeing Communism, were screened for their political backgrounds and what they could “contribute” to Canada… I, as a seven-year-old, was one of them!… You’re just blowing “racist” labels like a bad fart in the wind…
commented 2019-08-28 02:23:05 -0400
Andy Neimers, being anti immigrant is racist. But, it (unfortunately) fits well with the Sheer/Bernier xenophobic fan base. Not all CPC supporters are racist, but I can’t say the same about PPC supporters.

Yes, we should always be cautious about immigration, but we should never ever be against it

Mass immigration in the US is one of their biggest problems. But Canada, per capita, brings in 3X more immigrants than the US.

Our net migration rates are 6X that of France and 4X that of Germany. Yet, according to Leftist censors, the term “mass immigration” must NOT be used.

Debate the immigration issue loud and now, because by UN directive they are trying to make it ‘criminal ’ talk, punishable by jail time. Sound crazy? Goes against our Charter Rights you say? Hyperbole spin and exaggeration?
Please take four minutes to educate yourself if you don’t already know.

I just love the “interpretation” of Sean Penson on this issue :- “It was an overt racist and homophobic billboard campaign”… Duuh???

You’re a perfect example of why the country is already lost. At least by getting Alberta out of this UN run crap hole, we’ll be able to save a piece of it. We in Alberta will not end up the Jews did, with no country, after thousands of years of invasion."

Albertans have a homeland. It’s called Newfoundland.

“I grew up in Mississauga and moved here when I was 23 because the pay was better” isn’t an ethnic group, sorry.

Albertan’s have nothing to do with Newfoundland. Alberta for Albertan’s, and the clock is ticking on down for Kenny.

It was an overt racist and homophobic billboard campaign; should never have been allowed in the first place

“Too many too fast. The policies of the Trudeau government have completely ruined the calm orderly and pretty much accepted multiculturalism we have been comfortably living with for decades”

In 2016 there were about 5.6 million people that have immigrated since 1991.
The average intake for the harper years (2011-15) was 255,000 a year, a further 1.8 million., or 7.4 since 1991. Trudeau has taken in an average of 302,000 per year, or 150k more than we would have had we stayed at Harper’s rates.

So, in essence, 7.6 million in the last 28 years is too many, but 7.4 is not?

Immigration is about votes”

Which is why Trudeau would bring in a bunch of immigrants representing groups that strongly tend to vote for the Conservatives. Look at who Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson campaigned to – Immigrants..

Urban “old stocks” are definitely more liberal than suburban immigrants. Look at voter maps, the inner cities are far whiter, and far more left wing, than the burbs.

Immigration is about votes. Its the only way disingenuous leaders can guarantee votes, immigration and free stuff. There are too many Canadians who are fed up with disingenuous leaders. Something has got to give, and will. You can be sure.

Somewhere that’s an Elections Canada infringement. Removing signs.
