Liberals use Power of State to illegally attack political enemies


Why would Alberta want to separate from Canada? Do you think it's just about oil? If you do, you'd be wrong.  It is about CULTURE. Alberta has a different culture, or way of doing business, and of viewing the world, than Ottawa. Ottawa once shared these values, but has increasingly been at war with them. Alberta values individual liberty and traditional Democratic freedoms.

Provincial freedoms are a reflection of individual freedoms, and as Canada increasingly creeps towards dictatorial powers, Albertians are growing concerned. Increasingly Ottawa, and the East, are viewing the Western Provinces as colonial land that they have conquered, and are stripping for their prosperity. 

Some in the West seem to think we can still reason with them and that they will eventually see the logic of our commonly held traditional freedoms. But power corrupts, and Ottawa seems to be beyond reasoning, they see only power, absolute power.

This is clearly seen in this National Post article which we will highlight here. This story is ironic, in that Ezra Levant wrote a book called, “The Libranos”, which sought to defend the proposition that the Liberal government is corrupt and abuses power. And, almost on quo, the Trudeau government appears wielding its governmental bureaucracy like a sword against this outrage, the outrage of shining a light on their roach-like behavior. How dare those lowly specks speak out against the evils of the ruling class, how dare they report to the plebs the disgusting backroom, power mad, money stealing behaviour of the Libranos . Trudeau is practicing the politics of fear and power. He is petty and evil. But he is just the head of this decaying beast, a personification of its corruption. Removing him doesn't remove the dank infrastructure that supports him. It is easier for the West to leave confederation than to try and clean up the East. And now a word from Rex Murphy, detailing his opinions on this story:

Rex Murphy: Ezra Levant wrote a book critical of the Liberals. Now he's being investigated - National Post

 

"Can anybody give the name of any other book, ever, which has been the subject of an investigation by the Commissioner of Canada Elections?" Rex Murphy

" ... Mr. Levant wrote a book critical of the Liberal government. He advertised it via billboard and lawn signs. (For the unwary, it is a feature of publishing a book that it be advertised, and, surprisingly, even a book criticizing a government.) The Elections Commissioner wrote to him that he thereby “contravened the (Canada Elections) Act … having incurred over $500 on elections advertising expenses.”
So he’s summoned, under threat of penalty, to come to the Commissioner’s office and explain himself to two of its investigators, to tell why he did not “register” his book. Many thoughts occur. Here are a couple.
Can anybody give the name of any other book, ever, which has been the subject of an investigation by the Commissioner of Canada Elections?
Is the Elections Commissioner starved for actual work? ...
When will PEN Canada, defender of authors and journalists, take up the banner for Mr. Levant?
Of the interview itself there are some very striking matters. The investigators resist, with an obduracy that is hard not to admire, telling him what is in the complaint that they are investigating. Refuse to tell him who launched the complaint. The investigators insist the secrecy is necessary “to keep the integrity of the investigation right now — you’ll understand that we can’t share everything we have.” By everything here, they mean anything.
To keep things in perspective here “The Libranos: What the media won’t tell you about Justin Trudeau’s corruption” is not “The Gulag Archipelago,” and Mr. Levant is not Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and only in a mock-heroic, absurd world would the office of the Commissioner of Canada Elections provoke an association with the defunct KGB.
So I can only call it soviet with a very, very small “s” to ask a person to answer a complaint, the details and origin of which he is not allowed, for “security reasons,” to know. What possible threat to Canadian security on any imaginable level — to whom or to what — could there be in telling a person accused of something the substance of the actual accusation?
However trivial this farce is, and it is trivial, it somehow fits a pattern.  
This government, or the agencies of this government, are establishing a pattern of misusing the authority of the law in wayward manners. 
Just this week the news broke that cabinet minister Seamus O’Regan has incurred over $180,000 in costs at small claims court over a lawsuit with a Canadian veteran. (Good thing it wasn’t “big” claims court.)
I will not rehearse the abuse and hounding of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman here except to note that  
the government went full thrust against an honourable man, raided his house and tarnished his reputation, only to fold when challenged in court.
There is a great looseness of judgment — in serious matters and in trivial ones, too — that is at the very least troubling.
