What Have They Got To Hide? These Provincial Premiers!

[NB – The following is written by a former Premier (of Newfoundland). He urges current Premiers in Canada (the equivalent of Sentators or Congressmen in the U.S.) to test whether their Covid measures are constitutional. None have done so and evade the request, which does not reflect well on their ability to serve the people well. Citizens need to demand this of their elected represenatives. A petition should be written up, for example. I would sign it.]


I have proposed to the Premiers of Canadathat they refer their harsh covid measures to their highest court to see whether what they are doing is constitutional.

You can go to http://www.lawyersstandup.ca and watch a video concerning it.

All the Provincial Premiers have this authority.

I used the procedure when I was Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador in the 1980’s.

So, what could the reasons be for refusing to use this procedure?

Some have suggested technical reasons dealing with process. Ha! If there is one thing Canadians know well it is process. Results? Not so much.

Another is just that many of the Provinces have leadership that is well, you know , just not up to snuff. Now this is a probability , more than a possibility. Witness the gyrations of Premier Ford, Moe, and Kenny over the last while and you wonder how in all common sense they got…

"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"
