Since he is leading in opinion polls, Canada's charismatic Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party, called a snap election which will cost an estimated $600 million. According to fixed election dates, the next one was set for October, 2023, after the last one in 2019 left Trudeau in a minority situation & ruling through a coalition. Defining himself as a 'feminist' since first winning in 2015, Trudeau has faced numerous ethical scandals. Progressive legislation has included legalizing recreational marijuana & establishing a federal carbon tax. In 2020, his proposal for temporary membership to the UN Security Council was an embarrassing failure.
Canada has the world's second largest land mass with a population smaller than Afghanistan or Poland. Its aboriginal peoples live on reservations that account for less than America's Navajo Nation in size. Unmarked gravesites of native children in residential schools & missing & murdered aboriginal women have stained Canada's conscience but Trudeau's promises to reconcile these narratives linger.
The election call has dissolved unenacted legislation & Parliamentary petitions. E-2905 called for neural rights & was included on Peacepink's Facebook page. I signed it & was glad to see legal efforts being made to advance the cause. If neural rights are to be enshrined into law then the traumas faced by targeted individauls are real. As the media re/construct reality, where is coverage of this issue?
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association addressed the coronavirus' effects on freedom, compliance, unjustified limitations, mental health & mass behavioural modification but will not act on neural rights. Justin Trudeau is a former high school teacher. With the exception of Quebec's separatist leader, the other federal party leaders are lawyers. Years are spent negotiating trade agreements & treaties & the election results will again determine how Canada's tax system is restructured. Targeted individuals deserve more than a tax credit. Where the election is covered internationally is as significant as the next G7 summit.
It's important to watch the performance art. Democracies are in peril. Constant & lawful surveillance has stolen too much from too many.
(It's so nice to have somewhere to express this - thanks!)
