Freedom of speech is dead in the Cowichan Valley

Maxime Bernier is the leader of Canada’s newest and fastest growing political party ever!

Freedom of speech is dead in the Cowichan Valley

I went to the Chamber of Commerce candidates debate on Oct. 9, at the largest venue in the Valley, only to discover the candidate I really wanted to hear wasn’t invited. After watching the national debate on Oct. 7, I was looking forward to hearing Rhonda Chen, from the People’s Party of Canada.

I asked why the PPC wasn’t there and was told it’s because the PPC isn’t polling at 10 per cent. I’ve answered two of those phone/robo calls and the questions I was waiting for weren’t even asked.

POLL = Propaganda of Lying Liberals, especially since that government recently gave $590 million to their “trusted” news agencies.

Maxime Bernier is the leader of Canada’s newest and fastest growing political party ever! Only nine months after inception they had over 40,000 members and by the time the writ was dropped 320 ridings had candidates and EDAs, even more than the Liberals. More important is the message of the PPC; doing politics differently. Believing that Canadians want individual freedom, personal responsibility, fairness, and respect for all Canadians. The PPC is the only political party not tied to globalism (NWO) and the climate crisis. Max wants to do away with corporate welfare and subsidies, carbon tax, have a discussion on immigration (300,000 per year is not sustainable), and a reasonable tax system where corporations pay their 10 per cent and for individuals the first 15k is tax free. Max has promised to balance the budget in two years.

As an ex-Albertan I truly believe if the Liberals are voted in Alberta will leave Canada; they almost did after PE Trudeau’s treatment of that province and its resources in the ’70s. Where will that leave British Columbia? Maybe the 51st State?

To say that I’m disgusted with the Chamber and the other four candidates who are too afraid to expose people to what the PPC has to offer, is putting it mildly. It is evident to me the CBC, CKNW and our other media sources have been bought and paid for. I go to alternate news sources like The Rebel with 1.27 million subscribers, True North, or others, to find out what is truthfully going on in this country.
