Trudeau to resurrect Court Challenges Program -- here's why you should care

Brian LilleyArchive

Yesterday, I spoke with Ian Brodie, former Chief of Staff to Prime Minister Harper from 2006 to 2008, about where the conservative movement is now and what it needs to do to grow.

In part two of the interview, we discuss Trudeau's promise to resurrect the Court Challenges Program, a vehicle that provided left-wing groups with the funding (i.e. taxpayer money) they needed to sue the government and win. This is how many progressive causes were advanced through the courts. Not surprisingly, this program had its origins with Trudeau 1, was cut by Harper, but is being brought back by Trudeau 2.

Listen in on my interview with Ian for a history lesson that could help you be part of educating others about why this is a bad idea.

Oh I get it. Trudeau Senior put in the Charter that section that allows for programs for the “historically disadvantaged”. At the time, he sited a program that was in place, giving new immigrants business loans of $10,000. What he was really doing was setting the ground work to fun these special interest groups. See what I mean? Fucking sneaky. Can’t trust them as far as you can throw the parliament buildings!

How many Cdn’s do you think know about this? The Left are sneaky.

Four years of insanity and destruction of Canadian society coming right up, folks. Courtesy of Trudeau #2.

This is why those on the West, are now talking about separation. Last I looked, their facebook page has over 6000 followers.

More foundations to enact a socialist dictatorship. Oh, we had to do it, because the courts ruled!

Thanks for the reminder about this Brian. Could you please do a double check on the positioning of your poppy before recording. Should not be worn on right side. Should be on left over heart.

Thanks Pat, got that mixed up. Yes, the answer is to empower more lawyers, the bread and butter of the Liberal party.

At one point Brian Lilly points out that Polygamy would be challenged in court…Polygamy of course is a regular practice in Islam. This is just the beginning. It’s funny how only progressive/liberal groups get to take the government to court but right/conservative groups don’t…so they will have to fund their own “Discrimination” court proceedings…and “All Canadians will be equal.” B.S……

I forgot about Court Challenges. What is the line from Pink Floyd? “Say hello to the new boss, just like the old boss”

Seems we are destined for a Trudeau dynasty. I have always had an impression that the senior was a unmitigated disaster. He certainly was hated here in the West. But I wonder was he actually liked by people in Ontario and Quebec? Is he more popular than I realize?
commented 2015-11-05 16:47:08 -0500
Is there no end to all the insanity we are facing with this leftist ideology?
I mean really it is becoming so incredibly inane and ridiculous, that adding up all the things the Left is against would bring ud to a conclusive product total = Protesting for the fact that they were born and aloud to live and have life!
Honestly can it get anymore ridiculous than that? I am so sick of the Lefts ideology – I need a restraining order to keep it at least 2 miles or 3 Kilometers away from my family, friends and me at all times!

Who said this always has to be socialist agendas that use this program. Why can’t conservative groups sue for conservative issues?

Does this mean that for example that at Government cost The Friends of Science could sue the government for giving out information that 97% of scientist believe in the theory of dangerous run away man made global warming without providing any evidence to support the statement.
See my evidence to the contrary, Apparently 970,000 Scientist are Missing in Action.

Or is the money only for Left wing causes.

Caterwauling goat rapists rejoice! The push to nationalize Sharia is near.
The rest of us will have to pray to God while we still can … and prepare for a civil war.

MARK YORK commented 8 mins ago – Trudeau was a camp councilor.

To your comments, the nutbars are present and ready to be enacted.

Step 1 – Trudeau pays nutbars to take their fight to court at zero cost

Step 2 – Court sides with the nutbars

Step 3 – Liberal respect their liberal judges and enact into law what judges have already ruled on

Step 4 – Canada has a new set of laws and the liberals blame the courts

Hide your daughters and wife Mark – sharia law is coming and islamic terrorists raping women will be the new norm – of course it will be called something different.

Get it now? Stronger liberal party? Sure, say that again in 12 months.
commented 2015-11-05 12:53:23 -0500
You nailed it Steve, that’s exactly where the money will go. Court challenges will be funding the Muslim men to marry as many children as they wish.
commented 2015-11-05 12:44:49 -0500
This is one reason why I want to see a stronger Liberal party than last time around. People will eventually always get upset with a party regardless of stripe and want a change. When that change comes you dont want the alternative to be a wacko group like the NDP who will have people who have owned a basket-weaving company as their example of past business skills. As much as some of the new Libs in cabinet are scary and wacko there is a base of some good people there.
Imagine if the new PM was Mulcair he would have a cabinet that would be made up by embarrassing neophytes like Alberta has now.
commented 2015-11-05 12:18:32 -0500
Trudeau will likely finance islamic terrorists in Canada to exempt them for laws and introduce sharia to Canada.

Get ready for the shit show beyond your wildest dreams.

Socialists sell utopian heaven and deliver misery and hell.

Brian, are you sure about the wheat board? I thought this was fought in the courts, and that is why Harper cancelled the program / theft of the farmers in the west? But on another note, that was a good interview and please keep them coming.
