The Assault On Our Charter Rights and Freedoms Must Be Stopped 

A message from Brian Peckford, former Premier of Newfoundland (1979-1989), quoting and affirming the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms, and speaking out against the climate of fear that’s now harming Canada. An interview with him can be seen here:


Socrates stood before his accusers.

They were afraid of his ideas and common sense.

They could not defend their positions rationally.

Socrates knew he was doomed .

He drank the poison .

We are in a different time and a different place .

But fear has once again gripped the populace.

This time we will not drink the poison—we will not succumb to the tribal panic.

People are calling and writing me that their jobs are threatened , that boys will be prevented from playing hockey with their friends, that nurses employment  is to be terminated, with an already strained health work force.

Get that: young boys will be prevented from playing hockey with their friends!

A collective panic attack pervades the people driven by the irrational behaviour of theauthorities, selectively providing information, deliberately suppressing other alternative views.

Families are being split up.

Friendships destroyed .

Communities in tatters.

And we re…

"Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity ... the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This immaturity is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) "Have the courage to use your own understanding," is therefore the motto of the [European] Enlightenment. "Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet [or vaccine], and so on--then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay; others will take care of that disagreeable business for me. Those guardians who have kindly taken supervision upon themselves see to it that the overwhelming majority of mankind ... should consider the step to maturity, not only as hard, but as extremely dangerous. First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts. "Thus it is very difficult for the individual to work himself out of the immaturity which has become almost second nature to him. He has even grown to like it, and is at first really incapable of using his own understanding because he has never been permitted to try it. Dogmas and formulas [e.g., Leftist ideology, identity politics] these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use--or rather abuse--of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting immaturity. The man who casts them off would make an uncertain leap over the narrowest ditch, because he is not used to such free movement. That is why there are only a few men who walk firmly, and who have emerged from immaturity by cultivating their own minds." - Kant, "An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment"
