Canada was once a free country.
But Justin Trudeau came into power and changed all of that.
Now, he has launched a massive spy program against his own people, and Joe Biden is getting ideas from it.
Canada has long been considered a Western democracy, with freedom for its people and no dictators or tyrants.
But there’s one thing Canada is missing that the United States is fortunate to have – a Bill of Rights.
They have something that looks sort of similar, called the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. But it is not nearly as comprehensive, and is not well-enforced by the Canadian courts.
For example, Canada does not have an absolute right to free speech like the U.S. does.
That means when the trucker convoy started protesting in Ottawa against Trudeau’s onerous mandates, Trudeau had the ability to just shut them down because he didn’t like their views.
Joe Biden is actively trying to do that with his Domestic War on Terror, and he is having some success.
But it is a lot harder for him, because of the First Amendment, and the checks and balances within the U.S. system of government.
Canada also does not have a Fourth Amendment protecting them against “unreasonable search and seizure.”
And now, Trudeau is taking advantage of that as well.
According to Politico, “In a ‘remarkable’ disclosure, Canada’s national police force has described for the first time how it uses spyware to infiltrate mobile devices and collect data, including by remotely turning on the camera and microphone.”
If you are walking around in Canada with your phone in your pocket, the Canadian government can turn on your microphone and record everything you are saying, without you even knowing.
The article continues, “The RCMP can use spyware to collect a broad range of data, including text messages, email, photos, videos, audio files, calendar entries and financial records. The police can also gather ‘audio recordings of private communications and other sounds within range of the targeted device’ and ‘photographic images of persons, places and activities viewable by camera(s) built into the targeted device,’ the document says.”
You can imagine how someone like Justin Trudeau is almost certainly misusing these extraordinary and extreme powers.
He has already shown the proclivity to exert dictatorial power over his own people when it fits his political agenda. His response to the trucker convoy was a prime example of that.
And it seems almost certain that these very tools that have now been revealed were used against the trucker convoy in Ottawa.
Advocates for freedom are extremely concerned about these developments in Canada, as the nation seems to be moving away from democracy and towards an authoritarian dictatorship.
The article continues, “Parsons said it’s concerning that government agencies are benefiting from vulnerabilities in software used by their own citizens, which they have an incentive not to correct. ‘Rather than going out and saying, ‘Hey this is a problem, we should fix it,’ they say, ‘Oh, this is great. We’re going to exploit it,’’ he said.”
Joe Biden is watching this play out with great interest as he tries to grab power in a similar way in the U.S.
