Serious attempts in Canada to fight what's called 'rising antisemitism' with first law against 'Holocaust' Denial

HAS ANYONE NOTICED A GROWING PROBLEM WITH ANTISEMITISM in Canada? I didn't think so.

There's absolutely no reason to pass a Holocaust Denial law in Canada, even less reason than in the United States. Jews officially make up 1% of the Canadian population and there is no history or evidence of anti-semitism over and above probably a few minor incidents now and then, as would be found for any particular religious, racial or political minority. I'm quite sure Germans have in the past been worse-treated in Canada than Jews ever have but they did not seek to have laws passed especially for their protection.

The evidence that this legislation is wanted, designed and promoted specifically by the Jewish community is overwhelming. Two separate bills are already before the legislature.

The first, according to The Canadian Press and budget documents, was prepared by a group of Ministers as a plan to outlaw Holocaust denial by using the budget bill to change the Criminal Code.

Among its punitive provisions, it will set aside more than $70 million for initiatives benefiting Canada's Jewish community. This includes $20 million for the relocation and expansion of the Montreal Holocaust Museum and $2.5 million to support the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre in Toronto.

The bill's major supporters include Richard Marceau (above), a former MP, now vice-president of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs. Marceau converted to Judaism in 2004, 10 years after his marriage to Lori Beckerman. Among his accomplishments are co-chairing the Canada-Israel Inter-Parliamentary Friendship Group and sponsoring a bill establishing a national Holocaust remembrance day.

He claims that Canadians “live in a time of rising antisemitism.” Have we not been hearing this for a long, long time? He also comments, “Jewish Canadians comprise one per cent of the Canadian population yet are the target of 62 per cent of all religiously motivated hate crimes.” Sure, because Jews make it a point to continually report hate crimes against themselves. This has been a long-time tactic in Jewish communities that brings them lots of protections and special privileges.

The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs is a leading Zionist and Jewish advocacy organization, founded in 2004 as the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CCIJA) and headquartered in the district of North York within Toronto, Ontario. (Notice Toronto's centrality in all this?) The Centre assumed its current name in 2011 following an extensive restructuring process when the functions of the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Canada-Israel Committee, the Quebec-Israel Committee, and the National Jewish Campus Life and University Outreach Committee were consolidated. The former CEO was Hershell Ezrin and is now Shimon Fogel.

Marco Mendicino, left, currently Canadian Public Safety (meaning Internal Security) Minister, is a big supporter of the bill. His statement to reporters earlier this month: “There is no place for antisemitism and Holocaust denial in Canada. That’s why we’ve pledged to prohibit the willful promotion of antisemitism through condoning, denying, or downplaying the Holocaust.

According to Western Standard Online in April 2022, it was Marco Mendicino who falsely claimed that Freedom Convoy protestors attempted to burn down an Ottawa apartment building.

Mendicino made the remarks in committee testimony as MPs and senators questioned why the Liberal government declared a national emergency to end the protest.

“Those of us who were here were generally aware of the boisterous atmosphere but it was far worse and criminal,” Mendicino testified. There was “a high degree of anxiety, concern, frustration and anger which was regrettably justified,” he added.

“When seniors can’t get around because public transportation can’t get to them, when people who live in apartment buildings find their front doors are locked and that fires are set in the hallways and corridors – ”

“Point of order,” interjected Conservative MP Glen Motz (Medicine Hat-Cardston, Alta.). “That statement right there was proven false by the Ottawa Police Service. There was no connection to the protesters whatsoever. For this Minister to suggest that, that is absolutely unacceptable.”

... Ottawa police on April 6 confirmed two men charged with arson in the case were both Ottawans who had no connection to the convoy.

Marco Mendecino, who was appointed by Justin Trudeau, previously served as Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. Since 2019 as Public Safety Minister, he  oversaw the first-ever invocation of the Emergencies Act as a result of the 2022 Freedom Convoy protests this past February. Can it be surprising he's involved in another 'first-ever'?

Irwin Cotler, left, another well-known Jew long active in Canadian life, also has gone all out to promote the bill. A former Canadian justice minister and human rights activist, he served as counsel to former prisoners of conscience Nelson Mandela in South Africa, Jacobo Timmerman in Latin America, Muchtar Pakpahan in Asia, as well as other well known political prisoners and dissidents. Cotler represented Natan Sharansky, who was imprisoned in the Soviet gulag for Jewish activism. After his release, Sharansky went on to become Israeli Deputy Prime Minister.

As Minister of Justice, Cotler tabled Canada's first-ever National Justice Initiative Against Racism, in parallel with the government's National Action Plan Against Racism. Cotler has worked with a group of international jurists to indict Iranian President Ahmadinejad for incitement to genocide under the UN Charter and the Genocide Convention. Cotler chaired a commission called the "Responsibility to Prevent Coalition", which released a petition in 2009 entitled "The Danger of a Genocidal and Nuclear Iran: A Responsibility to Prevent Petition". The petition was signed by Elie Wiesel, Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour, and the former Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Per Ahlmark, and historian Yehuda Bauer.

Cotler separated six categories of anti-Semitism and found thirteen indices of discrimination against Jews that characterizes the "new anti-Jewishness."

What I find is that promotion of a Holocaust Denial ban in Canada is tightly linked to a Globalization plan that demonizes any racial consciousness or even respect for Canada's hitherto predominantly White European history and traditions. It's all about bringing us closer to a totally multi-racial, multicultural, irreligious Western hemisphere under a central global power structure. International communism under a new name.

The Second Bill

The other bill introduced by Saskatchewan MP Kevin Waugh, (left) called “An Act to amend the Criminal Code (prohibition–promotion of antisemitism),” would make Holocaust denial - which it claims is “one of the main indicators of antisemitism and radicalization” – illegal in Canada.

Waugh is a former television sports journalist.  first elected to represent Saskatoon-Grasswood in 2015. A member of the Conservative Party, in July 2021, he voted against a bill to ban LGBT conversion therapy. (Sounds like a liberal conservative, which is your typical "conservative" in Canada.)

The bill, seconded by Thornhill MP Melissa Lantsman, would amend the Criminal Code’s Section 319 to “prohibit the communication of statements, other than in private conversation, that wilfully promote antisemitism by condoning, denying or downplaying the Holocaust.” Thornhill is a suburb to the north of Toronto, which boasts a 33,000 strong Jewish community (2009 Report).

Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) praised Waugh’s bill.

“FSWC has long been calling for the Canadian government to modify its hate speech laws by including Holocaust denial and distortion, [...] as a criminal offence,” FSWC said in a statement. “FSWC calls on all members of Parliament to give multi-partisan support for this bill, which comes at a critically important time in our country.”

This bill would even ban swastikas and other Nazi symbols, Klu Klux Klan symbols, the Confederate flag and other “symbols of slavery, racism and of white supremacy.”

Waugh said he would not withdraw his bill even though banning Holocaust denial will now be part of the budget bill. He wants to ensure the change to the Criminal Code is enacted as soon as possible. However, if the law is changed through the budget bill first, Waugh’s bill will be rendered redundant.

Planned in advance

This project has obviously been planned out in advance, so as to have the legislation move speedily through Parliament before opposition has a chance to get organized. Like all the engineered major changes to society and our social parameters, it's pretty much a done deal before anyone has time to think much about it.

Further evidence of this is that every news story I found in a search for news on the bills was the exact same article – by Marie Woolf writing for "The Canadian Press." That strongly suggests it was prepared well ahead, to be placed in all major media outlets at the same time. One approved story appearing in all mainstream media—what could go wrong? That's real control.

This single narrative is that new laws are needed to “stamp out rising antisemitism” in the West and “holocaust denial and distortion” are obvious forms of antisemitism (that lead to crimes against Jews). I have noticed (have you?) that the term antisemitism is nowadays always preceded with the adjective “rising.” But where is the evidence? No one can see it – only Jews say they see it. And only Jews report such behavior to authorities. Only Jews have something to gain from it—that's why they create it and won't let up any time soon.

Comments

That Canada has a "Public Safety Minister" like Marco Mendicino is irrefutable evidence we are living in a version of Orwell's 1984. His actions have everything to do with stomping on the face of the public, while safeguarding the power elites. Thank you Carolyn for this excellent expose.

From a Marie Woolf news story in 2021:

Wrangling over language may slow online harm bill, anti-hate groups say

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/anti-hate-online-legislation-1.6257338 

Richard Marceau, a former Bloc Québécois member of Parliament who now heads the coalition pushing for quick action, said there was a clear link between online vitriol and violent attacks on Jews and Muslims. (speaking of Bill C-36, a bill targeting so-called hate speech online. They all lie about that. They don't have a clear link.)

"Our understanding is they are working really hard on this but that their thinking is not completely finished," Marceau said of the government's efforts to date.

"We understand that when we are dealing with freedom of expression, particularly with online hate, you need to strike the right balance. We want to make sure that targeted groups are protected from online hate, which too often leads to actual violence."

Jews came up with the word Hate for political speech. Weaponizing words like this is what should be outlawed.

they know what's coming? 
After decades of financial plundering of the public, mass immigration and destruction of "goyim culture, and the strangling of free speech and liberty to protect the "chosen people"...seems like maybe they need cover their bases when the shit hits the fan and people wake up en masse like you and your readers have done long ago.

Using the word "Nazis" in a legal/parliamentary document seems strange. They need to also define "Nazi." What is meant by "Nazis" for god's sake. These people are unprofessional and screwy.

Hallo, Carolyn, thank you so much for writing this most important article concerning Canada's imminent procedures in order to criminalize "Holocaust" denial, or the downplaying of the events of the "Holocaust", and for exposing the people of whom are behind these draconian laws. Since the jews are good at using semantics, and have written our laws (the US and Canada), they employ much confusion, using various numbers with paragraphs, subparagraphs, many, many, rules with subsections, etc., etc. This allows for judges, councils, court employees, and lawyers, to have the upper hand when "interpreting" their laws, which can have very negative outcomes, and, or, consequences for all lay persons involved.
I completely agree with you concerning your last paragraph - that using the word Nazis in their legal documents, is strange, and that there is a NEED to clarify the term, Nazi, with a proper, and fitting definition of this term. I also, definitely, agree with you that these people are unprofessional, and screwy. Only an insecure, power-hungry, and deceitful group of persons would behave in such a shameful way.

Eventually the truth about the alleged "Holocaust" will come out. With an open internet, this cannot stay hidden forever because so many of the claims are so absurd. Also, Jewish influence is behind the destruction of western countries. What will happen to Israel when Germany (and the US) finally comes to its senses and stops funneling billions of dollars to that illegal occupation? 
Carolyn, thank you for having the courage to blog about this subject.

Thanks Gary.

For myself, I don't expect Germany OR the US to come to their senses unless different people/forces/majorities come to control the governments. That means it has to come from the people, who are willing to vote for representative who completely reject the WWII foundation of the "Rules-based New World Order" put in motion with the establishment of the United Nations, headquartered in New York. This, as you probably know, has been a Jew-heavy project from the beginning. That's just the way it is and cannot be denied.

In Europe and America, voting is super important, but not just between Republican and Democrat. It's at the primary level where the difference is made, but most of us are not interested in involving ourselves in state politics. But that's what it takes.
