Perhaps older folks such as me can see the rot spreading faster than the younger ones which is why my wife and I started to teach our own grandchildren simple math and reading and writing skills at a very early age, we at least noticed the absolutely terrible teaching habits resulting in our little ones learning virtually no life skills. Today they are well on their way to success as mature adults with very little thanks to the educational system.

The truth will set you free is something I have always strongly believed in and I believe the saying I once was blind but now I see. Perhaps one day the woke and nasty LGB2Q alphabet variety that spew garbage will learn that.

I should note that my wife and I are not educators in that we have degrees in fact I only managed a grade 9 as I had to leave school to work, my wife managed grade 13 however we have both read every book that our schools have banned recently and continue to be avid readers of historical fact and decent literature, even in our 70,s we have inquiring minds and a thirst for truth.

The reason for your intelligence was your Grade 9 education and self-directed adult education on your own time and under your own independent authority. Well done on educating yourself and you grand children --- an actual adult in the conversation. Good for you.

“After attempts to shame, cancel, and erase our history, our founding fathers, our heroes, our Head of State, our heritage, our books, our culture and our religions, the spotlight has now turned towards parents, our family values, our way of life, and our upbringing.”

We saw that at the protests Wednesday over gender and sex indoctrination in schools. There is also an assault on New Canadians. The small woke minority that runs our institutions needs to be run out of power.

You taught in that system for 40 years McMurtry. What did you do to stop the non-sense and the so-called "Borg" (according to the obscure Donna Cat) from taking over???

Mr. Kevin, no offence but I'm not clear if you are simply teasing J. McMurtry or actually blaming/attacking him. If it is the latter, in his defense, unless you have been in the education system and taught students for many years, I am not convinced that your judgement of him or any other teacher is fair. The fact that so many people are finally opposing could, in no small part, be due to the teachers whose teaching fostered critical thinking. If you had lived (and maybe you have) in an extreme totalitarian regime - as I have - you would have experienced the difference.

In my estimation, one of the reasons that we at least have some laws that grant us freedom of opposition, meaning that the government does not shoot us, imprison us, torture us, or threaten our family and loved ones - yet, is that the people who grow up here and go to school have teachers who believe in the higher values of humanity and freedom and do what they can in their classrooms.

Besides, I do not see the value in pointing fingers and blaming people who are on the same side, have walked the right path, and continue to do so. If there is hope for this country, which I still believe in because I have seen worse, then the path forward needs to include unity and respect among those who have not lost their sanity.

A thoughtful response. Both! Both teasing and criticizing Jim. I was in a superior education system for about 8 years --- I was the Senior Teaching Technologist at a Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton. When I had a run-in with the building (goofy Human Resources types) bureaucracy in medical lab technology, I did manual work for about 3 years and returned to lab technology in a Private laboratory. By then, clinical chemistry, had been automated down to 1 large machine run by 2 technologists doing 3 times as much work as 50 of us had done when I was in my youthful "hey day" in biochemistry.

Again I ran into the human resources types after a run in with my single boss in the private lab, where she nicely "framed me" for giving so-called "medical advice" to patients. (My "medical advice" was:- "Talk to your doctor since you seem worried about this test." --- an ECG --- the woman was shaking so bad that all we were detecting on the Electrocardiogram was her shivering. She eventually calmed and we got a decent tracing.) And, as James and Frances Widdowson will tell you, what they (human resources types) do is build their case against you without allowing you to face your accuser. When "boys" ran everything, they actually let MEN fight it out face to face. But since "girls" and the effeminate took over, it's the human resources "back stabbers", coached by lawyers, who do all the bogus "investigations".

I got transferred to main laboratory hematology, which I hated. I don't mind doing the occasional routine CBC (complete blood count). But, since they also automated the heck out of hematology, the primary work of hematologists these days is staring down a microscope at grossly abnormal blood smears for 6 of 8 hours each day --- utterly nauseating "work". So I went back to school --- 6 months in a theology faculty, where I learned that these guys were not having "theology" disputes, but, rather philosophical disputes.

So I entered a real philosophy program at my old Alma Mater, intending to do a Masters in Philosophy comparing Aquinas's employment of Aristotelian logic and metaphysics in theology and our laboratory employment of all of Aristotelian Logic, physics and metaphysics in medical laboratory science. That went over like a lead balloon with all the modern "ists" and "isms" of a modern philosophy department. But you learn most of the better sorts of lies and lying. I did 1.5 years of the modern "philosophical" lying, which Aristotle correctly describes as sophistry --- non-sense which "appears to be philosophy" but is not.

Then I switched to a B.Ed. after degree, where modern teachers --- especially in curriculum so-called "development" --- do not even know the sources [the philosophy departments] for regurgitating the lies they regurgitate to each other and to modern students. These "creeps", in the Education Faculty, sent nasty letters to my supervising teachers in both Junior and High School "practicums" to the effect that I was probably not suitable to be a modern educator. My Junior High practicum supervisor actually showed me the "nasty letter" and asked me WHY they'd sent him such a letter. I laughed and told him that they didn't like me needling them about the lies they were regurgitating courtesy of "philosophy" departments. He instantly "got" the problem. I got good marks from both practicum supervising teachers.

But my wife just couldn't understand how a "smart guy", like her husband was supposed to be, was getting such a hard time from all the academics with whom I was constantly disputing. She presumed I was intentionally picking fights just to be contrary. So for that reason and many others, she divorced me. And VOILA! I was allowed to teach philosophy to both of her lawyers and to 5 Queen's Bench Justices! Those lawyers are terrible "students" of philosophy. But the judges do eventually "get it" --- never the regular lawyers. It's an occupational hazard. Arguing cases on behalf of mental and/or moral degenerates (as defense counsel) or prosecuting cases against mental and/or moral degenerates (as prosecutors) does not improve one's mental or moral "I.Q.". And philosophy is non-adversarial debate. So the practice of philosophical argument in an actual Court of Law is illegal, given the adversarial nature of our Courts. Very confusing to most people including Judges.

We do not have laws that "grant us freedom". The only reason and wherefore of anyone being actually "free" is the sort of freedom known by ancient Greek citizens. That "freedom" means freedom from personal rulers and from personal governors and to be, INSTEAD, ruled by LAWS, to which the governed consent, rather than by personal rulers or person-governors. Only someone who learned about "government" in an extreme totalitarian regime --- as you have --- would ever "say" that laws grant us freedom from being shot, imprisoned, etc. by "our government".

Coming from a totalitarian regime, you've got it all backwards. Canada was, once upon a time, founded by 2 "Nations" or 2 so-called "Races" of French Catholics and Anglican "Empire Loyalist" non-Papist "catholics". In those religions, your so-called rulers are your actual civil Servants. It's a Christian "thing" --- the greatest among you will be servants of the least. When Canada was founded, people actually understood and believed such things. That is why Judges say that they "serve" on the Bench. Police Officers say that they "serve and protect". Politicians and bureaucrats say that they have "served" in office. Today, they all "think" they're bosses and have power. But only such powers as laws allow them.

So, in sum, what you don't seem to understand is that YOU are the government of this country. So is Jim. So are James Pew and Hymie Rubenstein and all the "bitchers and whiners" on these lists. Those people whom you mistakenly suppose to be the "government" are your servants. So why don't you go talk to some of those servants of yours who may actually put people like Murray Sinclair and Kimberly Murray behind bars in jail cells where they belong for defrauding the Canadian public --- which is both yourself and James McMurtry along with all the "bitchers and whiners" on these woke lists --- especially my friend Kemosabe who's afraid of the police!

Our enemies have not "lost their sanity". They are following Marxist class struggle logic and goofy post-modern bogus "psychology". And I told James McMurtry exactly how to deal with a recent "snotty letter" he received from some clown woman with a law degree. He prefers to take advice from "free lawyers" who wouldn't say "crooked lawyer" even if it was lawyer-Robespierre or lawyer-V.I. Lenin on the opposite side of the case from themselves. Don't respect people. Try some respect for the rule of law and for facts. The law is no respecter of persons. Once you know the law, then you actually know that the 3 truth and reconciliation commissioners, their former Executive Director (Kimberly Murray) as well as many of their friends of the Assembly of First Nations are all crooked fraud artists.

And all their "supporters" in the university "class struggle" are "accessories after" to the crimes of these dim-wit "truth and reconciliation" fraud artists --- which includes 300 and some politicians who fail to distinguish an actual fraud from a bogus "genocide". Talk about "insane"!

Thank you Mr. Kevin for taking the time to respond to me.

I appreciate that you shared these events of your life with me and now I better understand where you are coming from.

However, unlike what you think, I am not a stranger to many of the issues that you mentioned. But thank you all the same for writing them.

I have respect for Mr. McMurtry and was not aware of your connection.

Expand full comment

You are welcome for the response. "Unlike what you (I) think..." --- hardly!

I am sure you're not a stranger "to many of the issues" I mentioned. But you are not confident enough about "those issues" to make a complaint to the police --- which I did long ago. And you should respect "Mr. McMurtry", given that he is a competent historian and, apparently, a competent teacher. But he, too, is not confident enough to report obvious (to me) criminals to the police. It is simply a matter of studying statutes, which one has plenty of time to do while lawyers "diddle around" trying to beat their own unbeatable legal system --- a perfect system of contrary opposites about which you know little or nothing --- and about which Aristotle knew everything there was to know (about contrary attributes).

Mr. Kevin

With all due respect, it seems to me that simply because you are unaware of what, when, and how I (or maybe others) am doing things in my power, or because what I do may not align with your fighting strategy, you have made assumptions and/or judgments.

It is great to learn that you are so knowledgeable (I am not being sarcastic). Having said that, I will not continue this communication as I do not find it constructive and I prefer not to complain about others, or call them names- “bitchers and whiners”.

I thank you for all that you do for our country and hope that in the future if our paths cross we might have the chance to know each other better. There is something about this way of communication that at times does not provide the face to face human connection elements necessary to establish a respectful interaction.

All the best

The Queen was a symbol of stability in the common wealth countries whose importance can only be measured by its absence. Anarchy is no substitute for a monarchy. Trudeau is not a realistic visionary and his immature ideologies has created a reign of error that can only be stopped by the intellectually mature adults who oppose him. The parents revolt is a very welcome and optimistic development that signals hope for a very dysfunctional government.

“Peoples do not judge in the same way as courts of law; they do not hand down sentences, they throw thunderbolts; they do not condemn kings, they drop them back into the void; and this justice is worth just as much as that of the courts.”

Canadians got rolled over because a lot of us were scratching our heads, saying, “How can they believe in these things?: ‘zhim, zhe, zhey’; cutting off healthy body parts of children; allowing a “genocide” to be declared to come up with an excuse for the Indig abuse and neglect of children (there is NO excuse for the abuse of children and NO excuse for neglect when all your bills are paid); and all free speech curtailed as ‘hate speech’ not just in their ‘safe spaces’ but everywhere people speak.

But this is not about a difference in beliefs. They don’t believe in ANYTHING. They never did. They’re just running terrified from each other—-that somebody will point out one of them is not progressive enough and they’ll be attacked by their Borg.

Because they don’t believe in anything, they’re bulletproof…When we get a new govt, when the pendulum has finally swung away from Canada trying to look most special in the world, in our “post national state” under Trudeau’s dyed Rogaine hair and wrinkle-free skin, these same people will just jump onto the next trend and start bullying there, running from their new Borg, whatever flag.

These protests are the beginning of a revolution; but screaming matches between protesters and counter-protesters are a very late, very ineffective starting point. We’ve got to get in there with LOGiC as soon as the bullshit starts. Like: There are males and females and a continuum from one to the other that is so large and inclusive, EVERYBODY is in there, always has been. Gays and lesbians got their hard-earned rights a long time ago and that’s very important; but all this screaming about Trans ‘rights’ is total identity politics kaka, aided and abetted by doctors, teachers running scared from their Progressive Borg, and some Borg parents wanting to have the first transgender kid on the block and sacrificing their kid on this altar.

And now we’ve got little kids who think genitals are LEGO toys you snap in and out, that it doesn’t matter what washroom you use as long as you’re screaming for the right of the wrong person to be in there. And young people who have been trained for at least 20 years to keep their heads down and their mouths shut—-unless they’re willing to back up the prevailing fashion trend, no matter how ludicrous.

It’s going to take a concerted effort, first step understanding these people don’t believe in ANYTHING, but keeping themselves safe from their own finger-pointing of not being progressive enough. So don’t cut them any slack. Dissect every ‘idea’, cooly, logically, immediately, publicly. Work to get the kids thinking again because they’re sitting ducks now, and they are the future.

Good! Now tell every lawyer involved in your ARBITRATION that Murray Sinclair, Wilton Littlechild, Marie Wilson and Kimberly Murray (their Executive Director from 2010 to 2015), of the TRC, colluded in relation to the "Day Scholars" law suit, initiated by the Secwepemc in 2012; upgraded to a Canada wide Class Action in 2015; thereby defrauding the Canadian public of 2.8 billion dollars.

All the "Divine Right of Kings" people were murdered by mobs. Talk about being "cancelled". Heads chopped. Gunned down. Run out of town before Weimar. Yet the "D.G. Regina" or "D.G. Rex" family of Hanover, then Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and finally Windsor keeps rolling along by the Grace of God, rather than by "divine right" or the alleged "evictions" of strange denizens of Edmonton, Alber-duh, Canad-uh. WOW, the Queen was "hot" when she was young --- and VIRTUOUS throughout the rest of her life. Wonderful woman --- even better than the first Elizabeth, who was quite a "gal" herself.

UGLE stands for the United Grand Lodge of England. This fellow seems to "think" that Elizabeth the Second was a Free Mason. He also seems to "think" that he could "evict" her from either the Free Masons or from England, itself, with his "eviction notice" --- which would apparently make him either the Duke of Kent (head of the English free masons) or God Almighty Himself, by Whose Grace [Dei Gratia Regina; By the Grace of God Queen] Elizabeth the Second was our Queen and Great Britain's Queen as well.

Pretty amazing for a guy with the Anglo Saxon name of Mason Hunter, who often writes in Italian or German and whose cheese was arguably knocked of his cracker by an Edmonton Police Service SWAT team sometime in 2020. He's a very interesting writer even though he cannot distinguish a Celtic name (Byrne) from an Anglo Saxon name when he wrote, quote:-

Byrne, the white trash, anglosaxon immigrant, spewing more garbage. Hey white trash immigrant, still can't admit your anglosaxon culture is kiddy snatching and pedophilia?

That message arrived in my mail box, but may have not been "approved" for this list. Since he writes in Italian he probably knows that Nativo means male native, which comes from one's birth and I was born in this country which makes me a native --- unless one is a racist who thinks that white people can't be natives to/in North America. My culture, in sharp contrast to that of Anglo Saxons, is Celtic and we male Celts don't fight with women about child custody. Apparently, however, this guy does to the point of having SWAT teams bash his head around, then step on his hands, along with other nasty tactics, before throwing him in prison.

But GIMME a break here. I'm neither a cop, nor an Anglo Saxon. However, if I was 40 years younger, I'd punch his teeth down his loud mouth, as some cop apparently threatened to do to him. It would make a pleasant sort of "ice breaker" introduction. It is the kind of Irish "language" that gets the attention of Italo-German numbskulls with Anglo Saxon names.
