Troubling signal: No mention of religious freedom in Trudeau's Mandate Letters

Brian LilleyArchive

When the Harper government established the Office of Religious Freedom in 2013 to protect and promote religious freedom around the world and to speak out on behalf religious minorities abroad, it was not without controversy. 

Religious freedom is a fundamental freedom and it’s one Canada can take a leadership role in protecting, but there are some troubling signals coming from the government right now suggesting that they might do away with it.

I speak with Garnett Genuis, Conservative MP for Sherwood Park - Fort Saskatchewan about his recent trip to India where he met with the Dalai Lama to discuss the issue and Canada’s role in standing up for all victims of religious persecution, which includes even those who want the right NOT to believe.

Dihmmi Trudeau, a true believer in the cult of Islam, that political platform that glorifies death, dose not want freedom of religion in Canada. Jihad is his agenda, all other religions will be eliminated and their followers will meet the fate, common in the Islamic world, of violent death.

When Trudeau’s masters speak, Trudeau jumps. It will not be to long before Canada is a third world country if our great leader is allowed to continue his destructive ways.

We Canadians need to get rid of Trudeau’s masters and then we need to get rid of Trudeau, this while we still have hands on our arms to work with and heads on our shoulders to think with.

Wake up Canadians, NOW, or sleep forever.

Dalai Lama is paid off – the left is in constant change to mask and morph what they really do. So hollywood (or whatever other lefty organization) has paid for Dalai Lama to live in warm homes with nice bed sheets and a full fridge – no more struggle.

The only thing the Dalai Lama has to do is follow a narrative – and keep the sheeple brainwashed into believing his more recent words, aka spoken crap.

Instead of killing people and martyring them, the “agenda setters” pay off the person who would have been killed and have this person parade around like a pseudo celebrity talking tripe.

The only religion PM Selfie preaches is the religion of the single party state and its authoritarian austerity pogroms on the middle class.

hey lama-guy… if you really wanted to be a spiritual leader you would go home and be a martyr for your people instead of playing golf with Obama and watching your people suffer and die, one by one while you sit on the sidelines. but you aren’t concerned with that are you? you are a fake and a fraud! put a pink dress on next time and go play golf.

Dear Diary;
It was fun being in New Brunswick. I think we should have all our cabinet meetings there; after all, sometimes Ottawa can be distracting with stuff always going on and people asking questions. Yes, it was a bit of a bummer learning, while I was visiting that mosque, that we weren’t welcome at the anti-ISIS meeting in Paris for some reason. Still, I got my spirits lifted at that nice resort, the one that common Canadians can’t afford now that I’m helping them. I just said that “We are hopeful, optimistic, resilient, forward-looking, hard working, and nowhere is that clearer than right here in [check cue card] New Brunswick”. Then everyone cheers because I mention the name of the place. Gawd, my people are so stupid, they cheer at anything.
But now we’re off to the Alps somewhere (must remember to change my cue card). This time it’s to talk about money to celebrities, but also to teach them how I achieved getting so many gals into Gerald’s cabinet. Between you and me, it was actually easier than trying to figure out who’s most qualified. The secret is just find a female and stuff her in. It’s like the time I stuffed Kirsti Duncan in as Minister of Science, and Dr. Michael Rasminsky at McGill University says, aside from her lying about being a Nobel Peace Prize winning Laureate, “this is the most curious appointment since Caligula named his horse as consul”. I mean, so? Who cares?

I couldn’t think of a more useless human than the dalai lama. get a real job and a girlfriend you wierdo zealot! sure I believe the Chinese are oppressing the hell out of the people of Burma, but this guy… he sits around thinking of shit to say all day, like a welfare bum. light yourself on fire you freakin’ goof and I might give you a quarter – ounce of respect. or you can run away and hide…oh wait…you did that already…coward!
