Is Canada Becoming a Police State?

 

Is Canada becoming a police state?  We are seeing definite signs:  censorship; proposals for snitch lines (article, article); militarization of local police forces (equipping local police with tanks, automatic weapons); installation of remote camera technology (see AO News – Surveillance Technology); intimidation (carding); humiliation; riot response to peaceful protests (2010 G20 Summit), increased military powers and attempts to arrest and silence journalists (#JournalismIsNotACrime). 

 

As of September 2020 add quarantine/isolation internment camps to that list (AO News – COVID-19).

 

In the online social media world, content creators have been challenged for the past 5 years or so by the major information distributors (Facebook, Google, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Redit) and revenue generators (Youtube, GoFundMe, Amazon) to confine their content to mainstream thinking or find their work demonetized, shadow banned (hiding content from other users), silenced or labeled as dangerous, manipulative, misleading or fake.  This has encouraged many content creators and users to switch to alternate uncensored media sites (Flote.app, Bitchute.com, open.lbry.com, altcensored.com) or take control of their own technology. 

 

The dawn of the COVID-19 pandemic response in 2020 ramped up the social media censorship to force a particular narrative (World Health Organization, pro-vaccine, pro-5G, anti-“plandemic”).  Non-conforming articles called “conspiracy theories” and obvious fake fact-checking, where “fact-checkers” did not actually check facts but attacked the messenger through libel and insinuation begging the question:  Who is fact-checking the fact-checkers?

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

Opinion: Trudeau’s hurried assault-rifle ban is a weak half-measure

-      owners of the newly banned weapons won’t be allowed to use them for any purpose, and won’t be allowed to transport them unless it is to return them to the manufacturer, or to have them deactivated or destroyed.

Journalism is Not a Crime

 

“The criminalization of journalism is one manifestation of the criminalization of dissent, and in North America it is of particular concern where Indigenous peoples are defending their lands. We see this in North Dakota, where mass arrests of the Standing Rock Sioux and their allies have been accompanied by absurd charges against Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman and other journalists reporting on this anti-pipeline struggle.” (article)

Dr. Simona Tibu, Edmonton, Alberta

 

Tibu was on her way to see patients in Edmonton that morning, when she was pulled over by an Alberta sheriff for speeding.

 

Tibu claims the sheriff violently hit her window. When she opened it, he asked her to hand over her drivers license and insurance information.

 

“I advised him I would do so if he stopped hitting my car.”

 

Tibu also told him that if he didn’t, she would record him on her phone.

 

“At that moment, he became very violent. He took his hands through my window, hit my right hand, where I have bruises on it, smashed my cell phone out of my hands, and told me… ‘Get out of your car now.'”

 

She says she listened to the sheriff, who handcuffed her. With her arms behind her back, Tibu says the sheriff then began hitting her breasts.

 

Fearing for her life, she began to scream, hoping someone would hear her and help.

 

Tibu says that only made the sheriff even more aggressive. She claims he pressed his knees into hers until they were bruised, and pushed his pelvis into her back.

 

“I felt a hit in my head then he smashed my head on the pavement on the road until I was full of blood. Then he told me, ‘Now I’m going to walk all over you.'”

 

Witnesses did stop at the scene, one called 911, another took pictures.

 

Aug-2013:  Dr. Tibu charged with assaulting a peace officer

 

Feb-2014:  Dr. Tibu launches plea to have sheriff charged.  Officer is identified as Sheriff Behiels.

 

Aug-2014:  Crown prosecutor, Doug Taylor, moves to disallow all evidence indicating the sheriff’s behaviour including visual dashcam showing beating and witness statements.

 

Sep-2014:  A hearing asking to overturn the previous decision where the case against the sheriff was dismissed without review of any evidence. (event link)
