Note: Thank you to AofA contributor Ted Kuntz for his post. I was reminded of a favorite song that my daughters and I used to sing - C-A-N-A-D-A by Raffi. I embedded it at the bottom of this post. Ted laments the loss of his beautiful nation as he knew it. I have a feeling that July 4 is going to bring similar sentiments. Stay strong. Stay well.

Today is the day when we traditionally honour Canada and celebrate the great country that it is. A day to acknowledge our history, our principles, and our freedoms.
The challenge we face today is that Canada is no longer the same country it was even a few months ago. Canada is no longer a bastion of freedom, no longer a country that preserves and protects rights, it is no longer a shining example of democracy.
This country is unraveling before our very eyes.
It’s time that we take an honest account of what has happened to Canada in the last four months and continues to happen.
Our government has destroyed our lives, our communities, our livelihoods, and our economy; and they did this based on a mathematical model that has been thoroughly debunked and proven fraudulent.
Our government has, for the first time ever, quarantined the healthy.
Our government has, for the first time ever, imposed non-medical masking of the general public.
Our government has, for the first time ever, imposed distancing measures that do not prevent infection, they only delay it.
Covid-19 is not causing unemployment, economic collapse, untreated deaths, seniors dying alone, suicide, domestic abuse, violence, depression, despair, and starvation, our government is.
The Canada we knew is gone. What remains is unrecognizable.
Those calling for less extreme measures have been silenced and censored. We are living in a dystopian dictatorship.
I suggest we are a country in free fall. We are a country that has permitted a small group of unelected individuals to dictate every aspect of our day-to-day lives. The country we knew prior to January no longer exists. We are no longer a community of free citizens. We are living a form of marital law under the guise of protecting the public.
Our government has abdicated its responsibilities to so-called "public health experts" outside of Canada who have got it wrong many times during this so-called crisis and have admitted that they have intentionally misled us. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions, speculations and deceptions dictate public policy and the future of this country.
And, while people like Bill Gates may have a lot of money, he is not a scientist, he is not a medical doctor, and he is not a philanthropist. He is an investor. His opinions, conflicted by financial self-interest, should have no more weight than the used car salesman down the block.
We must not allow the predatory nature and greed of the pharmaceutical industry to capture Canada. We must not tolerate the forced injection of our citizens with toxic chemicals and tracking technology. We must not fall for the lie that without these measures, life cannot return to normal. We must not comply to measures that interfere with ending this epidemic and instead make the situation worse.
And it goes without saying that the production of a coronavirus vaccine with never before used technology, that has the intention of altering our DNA forever, is unacceptable. By-passing animal studies and the fast-tracking of safety protocols is not only irresponsible, it is immoral.
Vaccination must remain a personal decision based on solid, independent science, not ideology.
We cannot and will not permit the government to take this decision away from us.
Our mantra is clear - My body. My future. My choice.
We must reject any and all mandatory vaccination for our children, for ourselves, and for all future generations.
