What the Queen Meant to Us

by Perry D Foster
 I was in England during the death of Queen Elizabeth the Second. Although the circumstances were solemn and sad, one fortunate aspect was that I was able to see, first hand, the depth of patriotism and love of nation demonstrated by the English people, and the U.K. as a whole, and the love they had for their monarch. As a Canadian though, I had to ask myself a couple of questions. Would it be possible for such patriotism to take place in Canada and, what did the Queen really mean to us?  Muted Canadian Love Although there were tributes to […]

What is “Colonialism?”

Language has become a weapon. For many people this is puzzling. Isn’t language supposed to help us communicate? Shouldn’t it be clear, and an aid to understanding? Isn’t language beautiful, and hasn’t it inspired the people who came before us? Yes. All true. Language should be all these things and has been in the past, but nowadays it has been twisted into a political weapon. The far left and radical liberal progressives have taken over our language, and they are using buzz words and labels to restructure society and silence people.  One of the most effective words they are using is […]

Retiring Chairman’s Message, Reed Elley

by Perry D Foster
About 7 years ago, some of us were sitting in Tim Hortons having coffee together. We decided that we would stop complaining about what was happening in Canada and start doing something. As a result, we started Freedom Defence Canada. I was elected chairman and we formed a board of directors. We built an impressive website, got a Facebook page going and brought in well known Conservative and Social Conservative guest speakers. Have we made a difference? I believe we have. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of people, mostly from Vancouver Island, but also across Canada, who are better educated […]

DEI Is Not a Faith

A dangerous and mistaken belief system is being embraced by millions. It is known as DEI. For those who don’t know, DEI stands for Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. Some people, such as Jordan B. Peterson and Gad Saad, refer to it as DIE, which may be a more appropriate title in the end, but most people refer to it as DEI. What is it, how did it arise, and how should we respond to it?  Sources of DEI DEI grew out of a variety of influences. Among these were radical left-wing politics, progressivism, the social justice movement, “wokeism” and a host of other causes. DEI, however, is […]
