Dear Mr. Scheer,
I note that on June 25th you posted the following on your Facebook:
“Today, Muslims in Canada and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, which signals the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
Known as the ‘Festival of the Breaking of the Fast’, Eid al-Fitr is a time marked by special prayers, charity, and gift-giving. It is also time of great joy and celebration as Muslims will gather with family and friends to share festive feasts.
For all Canadians, Eid al-Fitr provides an excellent opportunity to recognize the tremendous contributions that Muslims have made to our free, prosperous and pluralistic society.
As I begin my role as the Leader of the Official Opposition and the Conservative Party of Canada, I look forward to reaching out to and working with Muslim Canadians from coast-to-coast.
On behalf of the Official Opposition and Conservative Party of Canada, I extend my best wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Fitr.
I understand Eid Mubarak or Blessed Eid is a traditional Muslim greeting reserved for use on the festivals of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. I see this as in accord with your mantra, “I am incredibly proud to live in a country that openly welcomes and honours all faiths and cultures”. All?
With respect to calling upon Canadians to “recognize the tremendous contributions that Muslims have made to our free, prosperous and pluralistic society”, are you kidding me?
Like the Muslim terrorists whose attacks on October 20th in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and on October 22th on Parliament Hill, led to the deaths of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo? That tremendous contribution?
Like all the various Muslim organizations in Canada pushing a motion, M-103, intended to limit our freedom of speech? That tremendous contribution?
Like young Syrian refugees attacking fellow students at a Halifax elementary school (choking a 9-year-old girl using chains)? That tremendous contribution?
Like Syrian refugees at a New Brunswick high school bulling young students? That tremendous contribution?
Like six young girls being sexually assaulted by a Syrian refugee at the West Edmonton Mall waterpark? That tremendous contribution?
Like ‘honour killings’ on the rise in Canada? That tremendous contribution?
Like Female Genital (FGM) mutilation? That tremendous contribution?
Like beating one’s wife with a hockey stick? So Canadian. That tremendous contribution?
On a related topic, Faith Goldy with Rebel Media has been tracking the influx of illegals into Canada. In this recent report she describes how Canada’s border invasion has intensified with the onset of the summer months:
These are not refugees, but illegals, that is, they are breaking Canada’s laws by entering the country illegally. This is lawlessness!
Faith Goldy concludes her report with a cogent question:
“How many more fake refugees is Canada expected to care for before Justin Trudeau considers closing our back door?”
Justin Trudeau started the invasion by issuing a tweet in January (“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength” #WelcomeToCanada) as a backhanded response to Trump. That together with his recent pronouncement that Canada has the capacity to properly process all the illegals currently rushing Canada’s southern border, the answer to Faith Goldy’s question is that Trudeau is willing to accept an unlimited number of illegals through his open borders (back door) policy, a policy aided and abetted by the globalist George Soros.
Trudeau has declared Canada as being “the first post-national state”. As Spencer Fernando points out, “This is the consequence of globalist thinking. While globalism gets sold to us as being about ‘inclusion’, it’s really about destroying national sovereignty, weakening the nation state, and concentrating all power in the hands of a small elite. That’s why Canadian citizenship is being systematically stripped of it’s meaning by the Trudeau government, as we lose rights and freedoms, while those who break our laws get rewarded.”
As staunch conservative Ronald Reagan noted, “A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.”
I understand that one of the primary responsibilities of our federal government, in addition to maintaining law and order, is to assure the integrity and security of our borders and protect our citizens. Given that Trudeau’s open borders policy undermines our sovereignty and security, I regard his actions as treasonous.
I note at your web site and that of other CPC MPs that there are a lot of ice-cream socials and BBQs this summer. The question is while Justin Trudeau is destroying our nation, why is our conservative opposition not vociferously and sustainably voicing opposition to what is transpiring? I understand that you have been crisscrossing the country this summer “talking about our positive Conservative vision”. Talk about ‘Fiddling while Rome burns.’ There should be a call for the House to have an emergency sitting to stop this illegal invasion.
I have a beautiful 3 1/2-year-old granddaughter and I despair for her future especially when I see the quality and lack of leadership in Canada today.
Major (Ret’d) Russ Cooper has retired from military service as a decorated combat CF18 fighter pilot and from civil aviation as an international airliner pilot. He is published internationally in the field of civil aviation security and currently writes on related subjects while operating his own avionics flight test and certification company. He is a founding member of the Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights and Freedoms (C3RF) advocacy group that seeks to preserve the free speech rights of all Canadians.
The following are excerpts from Syed Soharwardy’s article:
“Islam is not just a religion, it is a normal and natural way of life… The purpose of Islam is to create a very strong ethical and spiritual society on earth. In order to create such a society, Islam provides a complete road map. This road map is called Shari’a.”
“Sharia cannot be customized for specific countries. These universal, divine laws are for all people of all countries for all times.”
It’s a total insult to Canadians that our scholars are blocked from accessing a program funded by Canadian tax dollars, and it’s disturbing to see that once again our money is being taken from us and being given to foreigners. Our government is supposed to serve Canadian citizens, but that seems to be last on the list for Trudeau. He never misses a chance to give our money to non-Canadians. His globalist elitism is a total disgrace to this country, and it must be stopped.
On June 5, 2017 the City of Calgary issued a permit for the June 24 Say NO to Hate and Racism Festival at Rotary Park. This festival is a peaceful inclusive family event focused on raising awareness about hate and racism, and unity around that awareness. On June 19, 2017 and five days before the Festival, the City of Calgary revoked permit citing that the event is Islamophobic and anti-Muslim
The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization identified by the Justice Department as a Muslim Brotherhood front, condemned new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for his “Islamaphobic ideology.” When it comes to patriotism, integrity and doing dangerous work to protect the free world (and, in the process, protecting Muslims in the Middle East), CAIR can’t hold a candle to General Kelly.
