  1. Anti-Christian ideology is the default dogma taught to kids in schools with Darwinism, sexual orientation and gender identity teaching.
  2. No, they are not. They are elected to provide good government, not use their position to push progressive ideology. They are supposed to be governing for all Canadians, not just liberals or progressives. So in your way of thinking a police officer, teacher, or nurse does not have freedom of speech. Obviously your claim is against the Charter of Rights which guarantees freedom of expression to everyone. It doesn't exclude some people. Anti-Christian speeches or commentary are common in every level of society. How often are Liberals losing their freedom of speech? Never or very rare. Their liberal/progressive ideology is the common speech among most politicians, and media. You are so badly brainwashed with progressive ideology that you can't see the problem. You want to silence everyone who opposes it.
  3. What is funny is Trudeau uses his highest office in the land as PM to pontificate to millions of Canadians about his view of the world and his progressive ideology and he does it in his position as PM on mainstream media using taxpayer money. Yet some policeman in his off hours and without identifying his occupation makes up a mime or drama thing on his website with a likely very small audience. The CBC finds out his ID and makes it public and all the liberal followers and lefties go nuts and demand he be silenced. No doubt some local liberal in his town was told and reported him to the CBC so they can use their national coverage to trash him. Even the local mayor gets involved and condemns him speaking on social media. Must be a Liberal or NDP. The whole thing about silencing him is obviously political. Perhaps he should consider fighting for his freedom of expression under the Charter of Rights in court.
  4. The problem I see in all this is once government or authority starts controlling what individuals say on their own time on the internet, then it becomes a slippery slope. Who is next to fall under Big Brothers control? The Liberal's Heritage Minister has been working on legislation to control social media, etc. If government had its way there would be no free speech. They consider anything said against the Liberals as offensive and unacceptable. So do the NDP. Lefty politicians have no concept of freedom of speech and they believe it should be heavily controlled. The next goal on the road to becoming a totalitarian state and creating the leftist idea of a utopia is to take away everyone's freedom of speech. But this could be done in steps by targeting certain professions first, then expanding it to include others and finally include everyone.
  5. The simple truth is euthanasia or doctor-assisted dying is strictly based on the world system or secular humanism. The world system is portrayed in the Bible in the book of Ecclesiastes. It describes life as despair, hopelessness, and without any meaning. Euthanasia is the natural outcome of that kind of life. The term "under the sun" used in Ecclesiastes reflects that world view or thinking. The secular humanist way of thinking is confined to nature and human reasoning. In contrast with that, the rest of Bible gives hope, comfort, and belief in a future salvation in paradise.
  6. Apparently it was the CBC who discovered his identity and revealed it. B.C. RCMP officer's anti-Trudeau website raises concerns about discriminatory views within the RCMP (yahoo.com)
  7. I don't think I ever said the Christmas tree was invented by Christianity. Just pointed out recently that some woke library in the U.S. tried to not use it and was forced by an uproar to allow it again.
  8. Fact: Islam has nothing to do with the Bible. It is an entirely different religion founded by one individual in the southern part of Arabia. Its belief system includes the use for force and that is how it was spread. You should not use the Quran and the Bible in the same sentence. They are not the same. If the Bible had been followed by everyone there might not have been many wars or fighting all the time. Fact: Almost all of Europe were under the control of the Roman Church which is not a Biblical church. But they still had to defend themselves against many barbarians in parts of Europe and from the expansion of Islam. Actual Bible believers have always been a relatively small number of people and they did not control empires and countries. Many of them were persecuted and wiped out by Rome. When you make broad generalizations you are not really telling the truth about history. History is complex and many countries and people were simply defending themselves against barbarians and aggressors. The Communists claimed to be atheists and they killed about 100 million people in the Russian revolution and the Chinese revolution. There have been many wars fought for control of countries, resources, security, and hate. Religion had a part in some of it but was not the main cause. But again much religion is not Biblical and Bible believers were not the cause of the wars and tyranny. Blaming Bible believers for the wars is a straw man argument. Only the ignorant fall for that one.
  9. The Communists did kill around 100 million people in the 20th century. People who were really following the Bible did not do all the killing. I have said this countless times. There are many false religions in the world and many wars and terrorism over false religion. Jesus taught his followers to "love thy neighbour" and said his kingdom is not of this world. So anyone who thinks aggression or wars was the way to spread his religion was not following the Bible. Of course nations and individuals have the right to defend themselves and their country against aggressors. When there are wars and violence, there is more than one side to the story. But as I explained before the world is a corrupt, fallen place ever since the Fall of Adam. That is why we have wars, crime, disease, and every other evil. When you try to blame Christianity or the Bible, we know it is just the anti-God, anti-Bible, anti-Christianity resisting. Without God's revelation, who has the truth? Is it yours, the liberals, the left, some progressives or who has it? It is complete nonsense to claim there are no absolutes such as good and evil, right and wrong, truth and error. Such thinking simply perpetuates ignorance, error, and supports a free-for-all attitude by an immoral society. Atheists and agnostics choose to ignore the Bible. It is a mistake to think there is a God but not accept the fact that he revealed himself to mankind. It is silly to think God would create the universe and mankind, but leave mankind without any revelation of himself and his will as we have in the Holy Scriptures. The Bible is full of evidence it came from God.
  10. The victims of this ripoff are telling themselves to be happy because their benevolent ruler is telling them it is all for their good while the ruler jets off around the world to live in $6000 a night hotels and wine and dine with the rest of the elite.
  11. That excuse won't hold up with the one and only true God. Those other religions have no real God behind them. There is only one true God as revealed in the Holy Scripture. If you have not read or studied it in the Holy Scriptures and believed it, you're just talking smoke and mirrors. Atheism is the road to hell.
  12. Making one's own choices without the moral compass of the will of God as revealed in his written revelation is a recipe for disaster both in this life and in eternity. That is why the world is in the broken tragic condition it is. Ever since Adam made his own choice to go against God's will, it has been a disastrous, tragic world. God in his mercy sent his Son to pay the penalty for our sin and offer salvation both in this life and for eternity to a fallen, lost world.

  13. A tax should have some justification for it. But they have put a GST tax on the amount of carbon tax paid in BC back about ten years ago or more. I know. I saw it on my natural gas bills eight or ten years ago. I don't know if it is still there because I moved and don't have natural gas anymore. A tax on a tax? What gives here? Sounds like something from a tyrant ruling the peasants in the dark ages. What a clever way to suck the blood out of the people.
  14. "In April 2016, the Canada Revenue Agency said provincial carbon taxes would be subject to GST" GST on carbon taxes in Alberta, B.C. worth millions in federal revenue | CBC News I don't know if it still exists.
  15. The government charges GST or PST tax on carbon taxes. Another scam.
  16. It looks like eBay made a mistake. They sent me an email with the list of charges and it listed GST/HST of six dollars and something. They were obviously charging tax on the shipping charge of about $28.. But you're right. HST should only be on the item. I pay the tax on shipping at the post office. Doesn't matter now. Looks like buyer is not buying it.
  17. So tell me this. If the buyer pays GST/HST 14% to eBay on the shipping charge when he buys the item and then when I ship it at the local post office, I pay GST/PST 12% on the cost of shipping, isn't that paying GST/PST on the shipping twice? That doesn't make sense. If that happens, I might want some answers from someone. I doubt if anybody could justify double charging taxes on shipping.
  18. That's not correct. eBay sent me an Email which said the shipping would be about $28 and the GST/PST would add six dollars plus. In Ontario the GST plus PST is 14%. Get this. They are charging the 14% tax on the $25 item AND on the shipping charge of $28. That is how they are adding about $6.90 tax onto the deal bringing it up to $59.90. That is ridiculous. I think their figures are inflating the costs. Not sure they should be putting a tax on shipping. Nothing I can do about it. I don't think the buyer will complete the purchase.
  19. This is a form of double taxation. People already paid GST and PST on items when they purchased them new. Now when they sell them on eBay Canada the buyer must pay these taxes again which amounts to 12% or 14% depending on the province the buyer lives in. This is in addition to the outrageous postal rates which can be $20 or $30 for a relatively small item. This must be having a very negative effect on eBay as well as Canadians who buy and sell items on the platform. This is just one example of the negative effect an interventionist government can have on a country like Canada. I am trying to complete the sale of an item which I listed for $25 and it ends up costing the buyer $60. The buyer may refuse to complete. I can only conclude this really hurts a lot of Canadians who could use a few extra dollars from used items they need to sell.
  20. The CCP has had decades to infiltrate Canadian politics, academia, business, military, industrial complex, intelligence, government, and everything else in Canada while the liberal and left stood by and continued to milk it all they could... good customers but at what price?
  21. I think you are imagining something. India is much further away from Canada and it would take much longer to ship from India to Canada. India would have to build vast manufacturing facilities and all the associated infrastructure to do it. It not only requires huge investment by many companies to build something that would take decades but requires an educated population which does not exist. Its not likely to happen. The main issue is India does not have the manufacturing capability to replace China for the foreseeable future and it would cost a lot more and take a lot longer to ship from India to Canada. Politicians are just using talking points because of the mess with China. Typical diversion.
  22. Lots of scammers calling from India too. Were you aware of that? Not sure we have much in common. I don't know what they have that Canadians would be interested in buying. I don't see them being a big supplier of anything in the near future. As I said, liberals saying they are going to deal with India should not be taken seriously as having much value. It is the business world that decides where to invest and buy goods, not politicians. There is no rush from importers to switch from China to India.
  23. Seriously? What does India have to offer Canada? They are a very poor country full of heathen religion. I am not sure what they could offer Canada. This sounds more like smoke and mirrors to divert everyone's attention from the failing China relationship. I doubt India will ever be a major trading partner of Canada. The only people who benefit are the politicians and diplomats who fly back and forth on international jaunts and stay in luxurious hotels and eat fine food. That's the way it has always been.
  24. Who was it that got Canada into this mess to begin with? It was mainly liberals. Liberals got us into this mess but won't accept responsibility and won't make much effort to change. Money is what counts and liberals desire to be globalists.
