Populism and Controversies in Canada

Populism and Controversies in Canada

Controversy and withstanding debate may be essentials during a political career. Divides in culture or political parties are out there but for some reason, some religious disputes overshadow many other topics. We take matters of cultural politics and religion close to the heart like they are our children or love interests. We should not let these issues overshadow other media developments such as scientific breakthroughs or personal accomplishments of sports figures arts or musical entertainers.

I feel that publicizing political controversies can lead to civil unrest in Canada or the USA as populist movements continue to grow. Many people have seen the beginning of the Arab Spring with awe and angst as it led to the destruction of many cultural and political boundaries. We see something like that as politics in Canada, and the USA is taken over by controversy over small changes or unpopular decisions.

Unpopular decisions are impossible to avoid for leaders or the followers of those leaders who may participate in protests of opposing parties. The opposing parties may also have their fans attending rallies or speak out online. Free speech should have some measures of responsibility which currently isn’t there online or anywhere. In Canada, it is possible to face criminal law before the courts if going too far because of the monitoring of reported websites blogs and social media accounts.

Australian state of Queensland adopts populist, hard-line laws

For much of its modern history, Queensland was known as the “Deep North”, ruled with an iron fist by a colourful, far-right politician, Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, who enforced a repressive law-and-order regime, used the police to crush dissent and repeatedly gerrymandered his way back into power.

Canadian Media

I have seen a greater response sometimes in Canadian media broadcasts which mirror USA media responses to terror events. A change in parliamentary procedure or political move even if unpopular shouldn’t lead to encouragement of civil disobedience. I am all for free speech if it doesn’t result in harassment of others or infringe on our Charter of Rights and Freedoms that has been in place since the 1980’s when our constitution was repatriated from England making us a sovereign country.

When we have the next election that is when we should see the real events of which a person supports a rise in social media. I like to re post articles or pages of those I support in politics that they have placed on social media themselves. Writing aggressive social media posts which harm the integrity of politicians is illegal. Whoever a person helps to be their leader or next leader of their party should speak forcefully on the integrity of the poster of content.

To state my own belief on protests, I don’t support protests caused by any political person or feel I could respect anyone in politics who would support a protest. Protests are somewhat illegal unless registered by all participants unlike the ones in Charlottesville S.C. Both sides were wrong in those protests despite one group expressing their demonstration because it violated the Civil Rights of other Americans.

Populist movements have been rising in the UK USA and Canada with the formation and migration of groups with advocates of such groups such as Tommy Douglas. He does seem to follow the law despite his popularity or unpopularity because of using cultural or religious topics in his agenda. Some of these groups should be considered unwelcome by Canadians with Soldiers of Odin canvassing my nearby LRT station. I believe other hostile groups do the same in Canadian public places without disclosing their identities when they appear.

Canadian Legislation

If the current M 103 motion doesn’t address the concerns of Canadian people, then more legislation should be considered and implemented soon. There are more people affected by the law in North America than ever before with the growing populist movements bringing up concerns to people who wouldn’t usually rise to a podium event.

Loudspeaker events are appearing in Edmonton and other provinces to disturb the silent majority with slogans and chants which mimic the rise of the Party which destroyed Europe and killed many around the world during WWII. Lately, I have been less inclined to post political articles on two of my blogs this one and one on Times of Israel.

Now I prefer to post regarding spiritual topics which won’t isolate others despite my years of being a Tarot card reader. Tarot can be controversial if someone wishes to make it so even if they read cards themselves but don’t approve of my style. I do have my own opinion on any subject I consider without wishing to be controversial simply.

The next time I see an offensive social media post on the topics of political culture or religion I won’t turn to civil disobedience or using a loudspeaker. I will only send a response to the editor or site administrator. I see no point in leading the way for a populist group to spread their message unless it is one of peace, prosperity, or good health.

Canada still has many good programs as do the provinces if you know how to ask the right people for help. The needy can find clothes food and essentials, as well as students, can find funding for tuition country full. I have attended school several times as an adult and know those subjects very well having a Canadian education. Never give into failure or deceit if facing an obstacle for there are ways to success here.

Social Media Response

Crying over how others behave is better handled by reporting those perceived issues to authorities. It is not everyone’s task to doubt how every aspect of Canadian life is unless we lose our voting privileges. We are still a democracy with some social programs, but we are not a socialist country like Venezuela or Communist Cuba. We are more of a middle of the road country than the USA is as well.

Lately, I have been more grateful to be able to refer to myself as Canadian when I look at global unrest or the rise of numbers of refugee claimants in the world. Nobody takes care of others in the way Canada does care for those that suffer. Alberta as an example has a fully integrated Health Care system which includes integrated first responders.

My primary intent with this article isn’t just to catch-up to posting on my blog, but to speak to people as I can reach reminding others what it means to live in a democratic nation. You can vote for someone you support or legally register your campaign if you are valid in opinion. I have an opinion so I vote as closely as I can to that idea unless there is nobody to vote. At this time I see no need to register my campaign because I feel Canada does have many options in representation. Don’t protest opinions or the votes of those who have a different opinion than you.
