WATCH: Jordan Peterson warns of “declaration of beliefs” demanded by Law Society of Upper Canada

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

The Law Society of Upper Canada is now compelling its member lawyers to write and sign a declaration of beliefs, which conform more to postmodern, or Marxist thought, than to liberal, or individualist principles.

Below, Professor Jordan Peterson discusses this issue with the only lawyer to testify against C-16 in Senate Committee hearings.

Previously — Dr. Peterson testifies at the C16 committee hearings.

And here is the lawyer, Jared Brown:

Hey Andrew Stephenson, no one can compel me to participate in someone else’s delusion. It’s as simple as that. Call yourself what you like, but, don’t expect me to preface every conversation with another person, “What is your preferred pronoun?”

People with gender dysphoria deserve psychiatric treatment and support. I have already provided you with a number of studies and reports to review, and, I will not repost links, as it is highly unlikely you allow yourself to read what goes against the current narrative leftists are pushing on the whole of society.

“See what happens when you start making allowances for one group of perverts.!! Now you have to make allowances for every group of perverts but worse than that you have to tolerate the supporters of the multiple groups of perverts”…
Some people learn fast… Some people learn slow… Some people like Andrew Stevenson never learn and nor will they ever understand the depth of their ignorance..!!
It would be kind of funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.. Andrew sometimes I think the power that propels you to be a contrary is actually a cry for help.. maybe if you got some you would understand why
grown-ups must act like grown-ups.!!

“Maybe these fags and dikes and sodomites could learn to dress and act like everybody else in the workplace or in society but when they’re at home and nobody else can see them let them act and dress anyway they like”

And why should they adhere to your definitions of “normal”? Clothing styles, for example, are entirely arbitrary, and your definition of “normal” has no objective justification. If a guy wishes to wear women’s clothes, makeup etc, … who really cares? I understand it’s different and change can be uncomfortable, but enforcing arbitrary standards to avoid discomfort seems fundamentally incompatible with a free society. I don’t care if you’re a “sodomite” – even if various religious texts (Bible or Quran) demand you kill them. Their existence in no way interferes with you beyond hurt feelings.

I find ti amusing that the same people squawking about forced conformity are themselves pretty quick to demand the same in reverse. (to head off the inevitable accusation of hypocrisy, I agree, prosecution for the wrong pronoun is not something we should be encouraging. However, it should not be necessary and we, as a society, should be capable of respecting other people’s life choices without needing to be told to do so. Ideally we do not need to be treating people like petulant 6 year olds).

Sounds a lot like North Korea where all people must parrot the party line or be blown to bits by anti-aircraft guns.

The bottom line here has sweet F all to do with flaky identity neurosis, this is about a professional body (like a feudal trade guild) dictating political and theological alignments under threat of restriction of trade. The fool who pushed the UCLS into such a liable position should foot the bill when this guild finds itself in SCoC on constitutional breech or under a mass lawsuit under breech of the competition act.

Now Andrew, your post is laughable. Read up on Bill C-16 & listen to hearings, opponents of legislated speech, and, government punishments for not believing/subscribing to social construct theory is certainly not throwing Binaryphobic people under the bus!

How dare trans individuals expect to be treated fairly and not discriminated against!

It’s time to push back and explain to the folks who are planning to police pronouns etc…they are in fact Binaryphobic; please address your phobia and leave your delusions at home.

EDWARD JOBIN commented: “I can see the day when C-16 will face off with whatever legislation M-103 produces.”

And it will. Except for the part that compels everyone to speak nice of Islam…or else!

This stinks of George Soros. Handicap the lawyers and everybody is handicapped. This needs to fought tooth and nail. Our freedom is history.

We the public should file a complaint against Edney with the law society. They will be obligated to look into his operations.

Mark Chadwick said in part, “And todays head line reads Omar’s lawyer visit teen charged with terrorism in the USA . Who the hell is paying this lawyer ? Big list of excuses for his actions.”

I suspect Edney is being funded by a mosque; whether this mosque is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood is something that should be thoroughly investigated. Reports are saying Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy’s parents asked Edney to get involved. How soon before Edney files a suit against the Canadian government? Islamic lawfare is thriving in Canada.

And todays head line reads Omar’s lawyer visit teen charged with terrorism in the USA . Who the hell is paying this lawyer ? Big list of excuses for his actions . It is about time that people quit making excuses for these acts of violence . Would you still be doing it had they killed anyone . All this is being spun by the Liberals trying to whip up votes . I hope all you lawyers get some balls and tell them to go pound salt .

Beliefs, beliefs…. Pretty close to religious beliefs, like islam. Does the Koran talk about beliefs? Could this mean that for example, if a muslim marries a child, nobody can use the law to prohibit it because all of the lawyers MUST comply to their own declaration to respect diversity and multiculturalism at all costs and therefore the beliefs of the muslim? Slippery slope to bypass our justice system.

" The Law Society of Upper Canada is now compelling its member lawyers to write and sign a declaration of beliefs.. "

..compelling.. ?? Under pain of what, disbarment?
Then sue them!

The only question is, what would Perry Mason do.

Rb Rb.. you can still leave the house buddy but you just need to invent a new sexual gender that the leftists haven’t heard of yet to further confuse all the sexual identities claiming some of them might be incompatible because of similar body parts… maybe just maybe the LSRFqq FI RRTGGBTQ alphabet soup sexual series have never heard of the “heterosexual” male and female..
And the heterosexuals whom they the leftists have either forgotten about or never heard of in the first place can claim that similar body parts rubbed together have been known to cause incurable blood disorders.
Maybe that will give some of them Darwinian freaks something to think about and in the ensuing distraction you can make your escape.

I’m an Ontario lawyer, and I won’t be signing this thing the way they’d like me to.

Being overly principled has so far gone a long way to keeping me an unsuccessful lawyer. Frankly, I might as well go all the way at this point!

(1st video). Peterson talks about the subconscious psychological effects of writing a declaration. As I’ve note before, the Left are 100% psychology based.

Class-based Guilt – the Left are 100% psychological.

Bruce Makes an awesome point, when he points out (19 min) that the Law Society is imposing a set of standards much like Trinity Western, only it’s a different set. So it’s not that they’re imposing standards, it’s the choice of standards they wish to impose. So in other words, the Law Society wants to rule our lives, tell us what to think and how to act. Yeah? Fuck you!!

“Bureaucratic Inquisition” – perfect phrase!!

A template?? Oh yeah, no question we’re into full-on reverse McCarthyism in this country. What the left have taught is, that once the coming civil war is over, and we’ve taken control back, that we’ll have to re-impose McCarthyism on a permanent basis, because they can’t show moderation, they don’t want to. They want their communist society and will have it come hell or high water!

So any lawyer who signs this either an enemy of freedom or a coward. Easy for me to say I guess but if ever there was a moment in history this is it.

If a lawyer in Ontario signs this without thinking of its implications for a minute, he is stupid and crazy.
commented 2017-10-10 23:35:07 -0400
My Goodness, this is very very scary. The Law Society going after its own lawyers to have them submit to totalitarism. If the lawyers in Ontario do not fight this, who will defend us, the small people, against whatever horrors await us with the extremist multiculturalism going on. The objective here is not only the lawyers, but the rest of society who will be left with no possible legal recourse. We may have to take up arms against our institutions, sooner than we may think.

Rebelation i was wondering how they would get around to trying to force people to have sex with trans whatevers, if you refuse to have sex with them it will probably mean you get charged under this insanity.
