Canada Day: what are we celebrating?
|Canada Day 150!|
Canada Day 150! We are supposed to be celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canada’s nationhood. Sorry, but we can’t get excited. If the festivities are about the material wealth and geographical beauty of the country that Canadians enjoy, then we should go ahead and have a birthday party. God has truly blessed this nation. However, if Canadians believe that the nation’s true health and wealth is more than just an abundance of physical and material resources, then we have little to celebrate on Canada’s 150 birthday.
Some recent Canadian history will help to explain why. In1968-69, Canada’s Liberal government with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, the father of the current Prime Minster Justin Trudeau, passed the morally regressive Omnibus Bill C-150, the Criminal Law Amendment Act.
At the time, Pierre Trudeau advocated for the new law and proudly said that “there’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation. What’s done in private between adults doesn’t concern the Criminal Code” It has turned out to be a big 48 year old lie. Canadian governments, both at the federal and provincial levels, have instead entered the bedrooms of the nation and there is no way to get them out. Just consider the radical sex curriculum that Ontario’s Liberal government passed in 2015. And the fact that homosexuality today not only has to taught and normalized to children but the issue is in your face almost daily in the media, school programs, government policies, dyke marches and “Pride” parades across the country. Canada’s secular culture has intentionally and willingly legislated God and truth out of the public square.
Today’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is completing the immoral work his father began. He has expanded the culture of death and the legalization of political correctness. For example, Bill C-14, An Act to amend the Criminal Code makes euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide legal in Canada. Canadians have been made legal executioners. We can now kill anytime and anyone with total impunity.
How can we celebrate Bill C-16, An Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code? This unjust law forces Canadians to accept transgenderism (sexual transhumanism), compelled speech and gender fluidity. Then, there is Motion 103 against Islamaphobia, that was approved by the Parliament of Canada. It’s an infringement on the freedom speech and the liberty of the press. The current Liberal Trudeau government is also moving to legalize marijuana. This will become big business for companies selling psychoactive drug. We may be in denial but this is Canada now. Business comes first, followed by votes and virtue signaling.
Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A.Macdonald said this: “We are a great country and we shall become one of the greatest in the universe if we preserve it.” There is political exaggeration in the observation but a nation does need a strong identity and a proper goal. Canada has the potential to be a nation with good democracy, the rule of law and opportunities for all. But Macdonald we believe would be rolling in his grave to discover the progressive and misguided social policies that Canada endorses presently. And the mainstream media, including the national broadcaster the CBC, do their best to cheer on the moral decadence.
A great country can’t be built on abortion, euthanasia, the breakdown of the family and the push for comprehensive sex “education.” Materially we have seen much improvement way beyond what the first prime minster could even have imagined. Morally we have been in serious decline since the Omnibus Bill of 1969. For the good of future generations, Canada must at some point recover those values that promote life, reason, responsible government and family. Warning: other countries don’t look to Canada for values and moral leadership. Behind the party facade, Canada is morally bankrupt. The world needs less Canada. May God help Canada.
