Warning to protesters who act as a liaison with police


During the trial a number of RCMP officers conceded that the Coutts Three were helpful in their interactions with the law. Yet the Crown (Canada's prosecuting attorneys) depicted the Coutts Three as the protest leaders because they volunteered to liaise with the RCMP. In future, who will choose to volunteer at any future peaceful, non-violent, protest to act as a liaison with the policing authorities? This verdict handed down on April 16, 2024, in Lethbridge, is a strong message that those who assist and liaison with police will be targeted.

Alberta refuses to be bribed by Trudeau

Today on the Alberta Roundup with Rachel Emmanuel, Rachel speaks with Alberta Seniors, Community and Social Services Minister Jason Nixon about the Provincial Priorities Act, which was tabled by the government last week to ensure provincial sign off on federal-municipal deals. Nixon says the province is concerned about federal interference in municipalities, which are the province’s jurisdiction, and this legislation will end that practice. He also says Alberta “won’t be bribed” to sign onto federal deals with their own money.

Nixon also says the province won’t agree to new housing codes to comply with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s green agenda, saying that would increase the cost of construction and housing. Rachel also asks the minister how funding the federal government has promised to municipalities is causing blanket rezoning in Calgary.

Canada’s Birth Rate is Collapsing

One of the most concerning trends in Canada is our country’s collapsing birth rate. Our fertility rate is well below replacement level and there seems to be no effort from the government to increase the levels. Successive federal governments have instead sought to artificially increase Canada’s population through waves of high levels of immigration into the country. The result? One concerning sub-trend from this reliance on immigration is that the young male population in Canada is now rapidly exceeding the young female population. This could have disastrous consequences for Canada in the future.

With marriage rates declining and the average age of marriage increasing, family building is taking a significant hit in this country. Further, recent studies indicate that Canadian women are having fewer children than they would want, largely because of financial constraints.
