Invasion Of Our Homes And Schools

Bad news from coast to coast. As if Ontario with what they portray as "anti-bullying" measures, Quebec with its mandatory "world religions" course or BC, with it's "corren agreement" weren't bad enough, we have similar developments from Newfoundland, Manitoba and even... Alberta. The latter is willing to offer no exemptions even to homeschoolers:
EDMONTON, Alberta, February 23, 2012 ( – Under Alberta’s new Education Act, homeschoolers and faith-based schools will not be permitted to teach that homosexual acts are sinful as part of their academic program, says the spokesperson for Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk.

“Whatever the nature of schooling – homeschool, private school, Catholic school – we do not tolerate disrespect for differences,” Donna McColl, Lukaszuk’s assistant director of communications, told LifeSiteNews on Wednesday evening.

“You can affirm the family’s ideology in your family life, you just can’t do it as part of your educational study and instruction,” she added.

Reacting to the remarks, Paul Faris of the Home School Legal Defence Association said the Ministry of Education is “clearly signaling that they are in fact planning to violate the private conversations families have in their own homes.”
Yes, there's still hope that Alison Redford's government won't be around for much longer. Still, the trend is alarming - to say the least:
February 24, 2012 ( - The great English writer G.K. Chesterton once wrote: “The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.”

But if what Chesterton says is true, then Canada fails the test, because the Canadian family is no longer free.
The only difference between the totalitarianism of other regimes and the totalitarianism being imposed by the Canadian provinces is that the Canadian breed of totalitarianism is couched in the Orwellian doublespeak of “tolerance,” “multiculturalism,” and “diversity.” But simply because the language is new and more soothing does not make the reality any less frightening.
And, by the way, in less than 2 months, Canada will celebrate 30th anniversary of The Charter. You know, the one that replaced the old Bill of Rights, with the stated objective to better protect our rights and freedoms. Well, now we can see for ourselves how much of a success it was...

Happy Diamond Jubilee Your Majesty!

P.S. Check out this picture. Yes, I'm talking about Canada's $20 bill, issued in 1935. It's probably obvious whose portrait this is. But who could have thought back then, (about 2 years or so prior to her uncle's abdication) that this 9 year-old princess would inherit the throne and become one of the longest reigning monarchs?...

Happy diamond jubilee Your Majesty! And many more :)
