Open Letter to Canadians

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Red Deer – Mountain View, AB
Canada, we are at a turning point. For the past 18+ months, this country has slowly slide into a state of medical tyranny where now one of the major election issues will be bodily autonomy.
Parliament has been reduced to a shell of its former self, consisting of Zoom calls and handouts from the steps of Rideau Cottage. This is not leadership. Not in “normal” times and certainly not in the midst of the greatest crisis that the world has faced since World War II.
Some Members of Parliament (MP) have spoken out against the increasing government overreach into our lives but most have been silent. It takes courage to speak up but it is the duty of an MP to do so.
The Liberal government has implemented or introduced numerous Bills over the course of the pandemic to strip your individual rights and limit your ability to provide for and protect your family.
Bill C-21 removed firearms from law-abiding firearms owners while simultaneously, Bill C-22 eliminated mandatory minimum sentences for firearms crimes. Bill C-10 and Bill C-36, if passed, will severely limit free speech. Carbon tax rates were increased twice during the pandemic and Bill C-12 legislates emissions targets into law, ultimately raising your cost of living while doing nothing to curb emissions in China or India. Billions of your grandchildren’s tax dollars have been squandered through sweetheart deals to connected insiders and poorly designed subsidy programs. The government forced Canadians into quarantine “hotels” and have now taken the steps to ban inter-provincial travel for those not taking the government mandated virus treatment. These issues must be addressed and freedoms returned.
How will I do this as one MP of a small political party? By holding regular press conferences on Parliament Hill that feature subject matter experts in order to spark a movement that puts Canadians first. 25% of the population, working together, can change a nation for the better. Do you want to be a part of a movement that returns Canada as the home of “the true north strong and free”? I do.
