“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

The objectives of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration conflict with the constitution, and body of laws, which Justin Trudeau was obligated to preserve and support

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM)

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is expected to be the first, inter-governmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, to cover all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner. It presents a significant opportunity to improve the governance on migration, to address the challenges associated with today’s migration, and to strengthen the contribution of migrants and migration to sustainable development.  The process to develop this Global Compact for Migration started in April 2017. The General Assembly will then hold an intergovernmental conference on international migration in December 2018 with a view to adopting the Global Compact.  

The New York Declaration
For the first time on 19 September 2016 Heads of State and Government came together to discuss, at the global level within the UN General Assembly, issues related to migration and refugees. This sent an important political message that migration and refugee matters have become major issues in the international agenda. In adopting the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, the 193 UN Member States recognized the need for a comprehensive approach to human mobility and enhanced cooperation at the global level and committed to:

  • protect the safety, dignity and human rights and fundamental freedoms of all migrants, regardless of their migratory status, and at all times;
  • support countries rescuing, receiving and hosting large numbers of refugees and migrants;
  • integrate migrants – addressing their needs and capacities as well as those of receiving communities – in humanitarian and development assistance frameworks and planning
  •  combat xenophobia, racism and discrimination towards all migrants
  •  develop, through a state-led process, non-binding principles and voluntary guidelines on the treatment of migrants in vulnerable situations; and
  •  strengthen global governance of migration, including by bringing IOM into the UN family and through the development of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

This is the velvet glove hiding an iron fist. The global compact, consisting of unelected academic institutions, non-government organizations and corporations intends to mobilize a global movement to create the world it wants. The last bullet in the New York Declaration gives it away:

The 193 UN Member States recognized the need for a comprehensive approach to human mobility and enhanced cooperation at the global level and committed to strengthen global governance of migration – (IOM stands for the International Organization for Migration).  However, let me state four facts to you:
1.    Only 88 (45.6%) of the 193 member states are democracies;
2.    The Global Compact cannot confer rights and freedoms of millions of people governed by dictators and tyrants;
3.    The 88 democracies already provide their citizens with the rights and freedoms the Global Compact is touting;
4.    The 88 democracies have legislation and regulations to manage immigration and refugee numbers to that which their societies can reasonably manage.

The objective of the Global Compact is to demand that we accept whatever immigrants and refugees it decides our nation should accept. We will not be allowed to manage immigration to meet our needs or to limit numbers to those we can afford to support and assimilate.

Just as frightening to consider is the Global Compact media objective, which is to:
Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internet-based information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising, and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media

Democracies protect an independent and free press. Journalists have a code of ethics and do not need to be sensitized or educated on immigration matters. Furthermore, our freedom of expression forbids the censorship the Global Compact proposes.

Democracies are an open forum of ideas and ideals, some of which we find inane or repugnant. We have and will continue to confront and deal with those ideas and opinions.

Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has signed on to The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, but ... the objectives conflict with the constitution and body of laws he is obligated to preserve and support.

Proponents of this document claim that it is non-binding. In that case there was no need to sign on, and Canada was foolish to sign on and give the document undeserved credibility.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
