What we don’t need to do as a Party, or party supporters, is to start attacking Ontario Conservative or Liberal voters as “deplorable’s” “alt-right” “fascist” or any of the rest of the hyperbolic hate fest. The “us and them” dichotomy of virtue signaling, identity politics helped Ford win Queens Park. Wynne’s Liberals approached social issues with the arrogance that has disastrously been in fashion on the left. Anyone who questioned any part of the agenda was labelled as a “fascist” “alt-right” or “something-phobic”. This is not progressive politics and it is not in line with core NDP policies of inclusion and respect for all. Debate and education, not hate and derision. It also did more than any one single factor in electing Doug Ford, we made progressive politics a place of shame and division, fear and recrimination. Tommy Douglas wanted us to persuade the other mice of what was actually in their own interest not belittle, and attack them with operatic rhetoric. One is a winning strategy, one clearly, is not.

“We can, if we have the wisdom, light a fire in this place and time, so bright and clear that it will be seen by all the children of man. Many of whom still huddle in darkness and misery in every corner of the earth. Let our actions be a blazing beacon of hope in a world of Donald Trump and YouTube beheading videos. Let us be the example to our children of what is possible for humanity when people of reason and good will work together in good faith.”

Canadians need to understand very clearly that we stepped farther into this fight with Prime minister Trudeau’s 2016 shift. The consequences of which could be nothing short of cataclysmic.

This fictional battle against environmentalists was not just fought by the Canadian Forces. This was a “whole of government” response exercise involving the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service(CSIS), Communication Security Establishment Canada(CSEC, the NSA north), Royal Canadian Mounted Police,(RCMP), The Sûreté du Quebec(Québec provincial police) and the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal(SPVM).
While there was talk of “Capacity building” and a commitment to humanitarian aid, the military part of Mr Trudeau’s earnest sounding speech speech is completely disingenuous. The fact of the matter is “equipping, advising and assisting” is a combat mission.
The betrayal of Canada’s Veterans by our elected leaders is a national disgrace. The Conservative government has decided to fight Veterans at every turn, and they need to be stopped. As an injured Veteran, I believe our struggle for justice is shared by every patriotic Canadian with a conscience
“It is becoming increasingly self-evident that if we as Canadians want to take control of our country, our communities and our lives we must strongly support our Québécois brothers and sisters in their courageous struggle for social justice by calling on the Québec Government to immediately end the brutal and illegal violence against their own people, our fellow citizens. Then we must join them, all of us, in the streets of our cities and towns from Victoria to Halifax”.
