With his announcement to enact the “Emergency Measures Act” (EMA), Justin Trudeau practically declared war on the Canadian people. After all, the EMA was formerly called the “War Measures Act,” and it basically transforms Mr. Trudeau into a “legal” dictator.
Why did Trudeau retreat to this measure? Orwell makes the answer clear:
All tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but once the fraud is exposed they must rely exclusively on force.
Due to the decay of his lies, our Prime Minster no longer rules legitimately. Thus, he’s resorted to making himself the de-facto leader of Canada to silence our peaceful protests.
No doubt some will argue what Trudeau is doing isn’t tyranny—not like the USSR or 1930s Germany, anyway. Perhaps that’s a fair point, but how can we refuse to acknowledge we’re sliding down the same treacherous road into an abyss of oppression?
Ten years ago, it would’ve been radical to say our government would one day usher in a communist-style of rule; today, it’s radical to say our government won’t usher in a communist-style of rule. Do we need evidence? Look at the Emergency Measures Act! Trudeau himself said the unvaccinated, “Take up space.”* Even Bill Maher realized the threat our Prime Minister poses!**
2. Pierre Poilievre
“Yes,” some might reply, “But Pierre Poilievre is coming. He’ll save the country.”
Even if he assumes the Canadian Throne, his power won’t last forever. Hopes placed in mortals die with them; all the promise of their power comes to nothing (Proverbs 11:7).
As a Christian, I cannot support him due to his vehement secular and pro-abortion stance.*` I cannot vote for a man who rammed Bill C-4 through the House of Commons. Though (at least on the surface) his economic policies are sensible, his moral sentiments are not.
Nonetheless, even if Poilievre gained control, like every other Federal Bureaucrat who’s ruled before him, he will have to cater to the east to achieve renewed victory. It’s not his fault; it’s not a critique of Poilievre's democratic views. It's merely an objective fact that Federal leaders have to bow to the eastern bloc to remain in power.
“Fine.” others yet might say, “Perhaps the UCP will be reformed, and we’ll have a more defiant, resolute voice in Ottawa.”
Yes, but reformed by who at present? Brian Jean? Doug Schweitzer? And what will they do differently than the Premiers before them?
For example, it’s in every Alberta Premier’s self-interest to end equalization, so why hasn’t it happened already? Simply stated, we have no democratic leverage with Ottawa.
Brian Jean might say, “I will fight for Alberta!”
With what? We’re bound and shackled by Ottawa. Again, though not his fault, a leader like Brian Jean would have no more ability to change the constitution (which is what we need) than Premiers like Alison Redford had before him.
The Federal Government is already seizing bank accounts. Of course, it won’t end there. How long until Trudeau takes control of our oil industry? What about farming? How long until he says what to farm, when to farm, and how to farm? Ottawa is already infiltrating schools and daycare; how much longer until they swallow the institution of the home entirely?
Who would invest in Canada (or Alberta), now knowing that at any moment, our government can freeze bank accounts and snatch capital and assets away? Who would be comfortable sinking hundreds of millions of dollars in our country knowing our government doesn’t follow any rule of law at all?
Thus, just accounting for the economics alone, Alberta independence—an Alberta where government is restricted and controlled by robust checks and balances on power—is something to seriously consideration. But look at the ethical argument as well!
The Federal Government of Ottawa is morally corrupt. They have ceased to recognize the supremacy of God. Trudeau and his demagogues have become “Masters of their fate,” which is not a liberation, but a judgement. What does the Lord say of this? Look at the revolt against King Rehoboam in 2 Chronicles 10 and 1 Kings 11:26-40.
Trudeau, like Rehoboam, rejects the counsel of wisdom. Rehoboam made the Israelite’s yoke heavy with hard, unjust laws and excessive burdens; Trudeau does the same and invokes the Emergency Act against us.
That’s bad enough, but for the Lord, what seals Rehoboam’s fate is his worship of evil detailed in 1 Kings 11:31-34 below. Perhaps it’s time for Alberta to act like Jeroboam and adventure into a new life of justice, law, and the supremacy of God, especially considering the Lord has sealed Trudeau’s fate as well:
And he [The Lord] said to Jeroboam [The man commanded to split the kingdom of Israel in two],…’Behold, I am about to tear the kingdom from the hand of Solomon [Rehoboam] and will give you ten tribes (but he shall have one tribe, for the sake of my servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city that I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel), because they have forsaken me and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians…and they have not walked in my ways, doing what is right in my sight and keeping my statutes and my rules, as David his father did.
