My fines came in the mail. Almost $10,000 in victim surcharge. Total $46,020. I guess the government feels victimized from people wanting to live their lives properly and to choose how to take care of their health, how much risk they’d like to assume, and attending and hosting lawful peaceful protests. Of course they didn’t feel victimized breaking and getting exemptions from all of their dictates.
Government at any level must not be allowed to restrict freedoms, even in an EMERGENCY. That is precisely when these freedoms are most important. What constitutes an emergency only depends on who is in power. Everyone would declare an emergency at a different line. That is why governments must protect freedom even in an emergency.
This charge is just like everything else when you try to live a life of your own. You want to homeschool? You pay for public school and then you pay more for what you actually want your kids to learn. You want an alternative treatment or care? You pay for public health and then you pay more for what you really want and need. You want a world of opportunities, to see your family, help your neighbour, save the day, and take a risk because you have principles and know life must always go on in spite of fear? You have to battle for a normal healthy life everyday and then you pay more in charges because the government doesn’t approve. It’s a tax, on a tax, on a tax…
One hope I have is that more Libertarian, freedom, and Christian butts will start “infiltrating” all levels of government and we can take back our God given freedoms and our humanity.
An interview with Andrew DeBartolo:
Big thanks to Liberty Coalition Canada for having me on the Liberty Dispatch to chat about the Aylmer Freedom rallies that I hosted – and obviously attended.
Ultimately, these sorts of cases must go to the top. In the meantime Libertarian and freedom oriented butts need to get seats in ALL levels of government.
Government at any level must not be allowed to restrict freedoms, even in an EMERGENCY. That is precisely when these freedoms are most important. What constitutes an emergency only depends upon who is in power. Everyone would declare an emergency at a different line. That is why governments must PROTECT FREEDOM EVEN in an emergency. It is paramount that no one dictates what the answer is, everything remains on the table and we each choose for ourselves and our families.
My friend said the article in the London Free Press / National Post etc should have been titled, “BORED HOUSEWIFE” 😂🏆 Glad to see so many people for freedom in MOST of the comments!
An interview with Derek Sloan:
“Propaganda always attempts to portray political crimes as assaults against all of society, but in reality, the state prosecutes political crimes because they are activities that regimes consider to be threats to the regime’s interests and legitimacy. As such, these activities are often punished more severely than violent crime committed against private individuals.”
This is exactly what it was like going to court in Elgin County:
A parking ticket court for “Re-opening” Ontario Act charges and a Charter challenge. 😂🏆 Exactly the same!! Don’t even get me started on how they completely ignored the issue at hand and kept bringing up masking and social distancing which had ZERO to do with what I brought to the table and was NOT what I was charged with.
All you can do is laugh. The Orwellian quote of the times: “Your rights were violated but it was justified.” 🙃 What an absolutely meaningless yet telling statement.
A Town Divided?
The Crown said I giggled in my speech talking about missed hockey. You can see my speech here: first rally and second rally (with hockey reference). I probably laughed in each. You can judge for yourself if you think I’m trying to be mean or not. I am definitely laughing at the audacity of the town to declare an emergency and scare the crap out of everyone and closing the arena when they did not need to instead of being reasonable. For once the town had the businesses open and with the right leadership they could have made a lot of money that day as everyone wanted to support small business. We had spoken to one hockey family and sorted out what was going on. Hockey did not have to be cancelled. It could have still gone on. There was no blocking of the entrance and there was another laneway the families could have used to get there and park at the back where we were not.
Also on a side note, the local paper, the Aylmer Express, was upset I wasn’t taking food donations for the food bank and so I thought that was a good idea and so we did at the second rally. The local food bank would not take the food donations because they were from us. And so we took them to another town nearby instead. This foreshadows what happens with charges for Henry Hildebrandt in which they offer to pay $75,000 to the local food bank but the court says no and takes a $65,000 fine for themselves. It’s not about the community at all. This whole thing is about government and what they want you to believe and how they want you to fall in line.
I giggled in court during my sentencing. 100%. I was there in person which was a real treat because I did everything on zoom before. It was good to be there so we could all see each other face to face. The JP had asked if I had anything I wished to say. I was unprepared for this and had not thought up anything to say in advance. I told her this and said that I might regret not saying anything since I was given the opportunity. I said that I thought I shouldn’t be fined for what it was worth but I said that that was probably obvious. I also said that I would let my lawyer speak for me since she was prepared and that is what I hired her to do and then I also mentioned to the JP that of course you know how I would go on if given the opportunity to speak. LOL It was funny. I laughed and I think she also laughed but definitely smiled because she knew what I was talking about. If given an opportunity and I’m prepared I will talk, a lot. The JP had been in court with me for 5 days and did not need anymore lectures 😉 So this statement was hilarious 😀 You had to be there – the whole time! – to understand. Obviously the paper wanted me to just look silly and that’s fine — I just wanted to let you know about it all.
