Speech as PPC Candidate for London North Centre – 19 July 2019
Globalism and Islamism joined together is the elephant in the room, and we cannot seriously address any of the issues that demand our attention-whether it be policies pertaining to immigration and domestic security, or the economy, or jobs in Alberta's energy sector and in southern Ontario's auto parts industry, or about the health and welfare of our people, or foreign affairs and defence of our country -without taking into account the elephant in the room.
Statement from Salim Mansur:
Please, let me first, on your behalf and all Londoners welcome Maxime Bernier, the leader of our party, People's Party of Canada, to our Forest City of London.
Bienvenue, Maxime...Bienvenue to London and Southwestern Ontario. We all admire you, love you, and support you. May the Lord be with you.
It is truly a very special occasion to be on this stage with you, Maxime, and this immensely talented group of individuals you have assembled as part of your Ontario team for the upcoming 2019 federal election.
And I am greatly privileged to be part of this team with you, Maxime, as our leader.
Every federal election is important, yet in retrospect some are more important and more critical than others in the life of a country, such as ours. But going into this 2019 election, we can say with great deal of certainty that this election for a number of reasons will be a crossroad election and the future of our country hangs in balance, as was the election in February 1980.
In 1980 Quebec separatism threatened the unity of our country; today it is the twin forces of Globalism and Islamism, joined at the hip, that threaten both the unity of Canada and its liberal democratic culture founded on the principle of freedom based on individual rights.
Globalism, as an ideology, points to a one borderless world administered by international organizations, such as the UN and its agencies, while nation-states are viewed as obsolete and requiring dissolution, as the German Chancellor Angela Merkel has noted.
Islamism, or militant or radical Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood, of the Iranian clerical regime, and their offshoots are at war with the West and the modern world of democracy, and bent upon pushing their global agenda of Sharia compliance.
Globalism and Islamism joined together is the elephant in the room, and we cannot seriously address any of the issues that demand our attention-whether it be policies pertaining to immigration and domestic security, or the economy, or jobs in Alberta's energy sector and in southern Ontario's auto and auto parts industry, or about the health and welfare of our people, or foreign affairs and defence of our country -without taking into account the elephant in the room.
But both the Liberal Party and the Conservative Party are fully committed in publicly denying the presence of this elephant in the room. The only difference between the two parties is that one is willing to ride the elephant, and the other is seeking to hide from the elephant.
We, in the People's Party with Maxime Bernier, are the only people in Canada at this time in our history endangered by Globalism and Islamism fully prepared to engage in a national conversation about this elephant in the room and how it subverts the national interests of Canada. For we recognize without any ambiguity how in failing to contain and defeat these twin forces, Canada will roll down on a fast track to become a laboratory of the Globalist-Islamist agenda.
Justin Trudeau proudly proclaims Canada has no core identity, and is a post-national state. This is Trudeau's slogan wrapped in virtue signalling, as he adopted UN Agenda 2030, the Paris Accord and UN Global Compact on Migration, which together radically weaken Canadian sovereignty.
We, the People's Party of Canada, will have none of it.
Seventy-five years ago this past June Canadian men landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, in the face of fire in defence of freedom. Their courage and heroism helped smash the Nazi monster and bring about the defeat of Hitler and his Third Reich. They went beyond Canada's shores and across the seas in defence of freedom. They were the warriors for freedom.
Today, freedom, most importantly free speech, which is the mother of all freedoms, is under siege right here in Canada. Political correctness and the passage of Motion-103 to abridge and censor free speech in the name of Islamophobia illustrate how precarious at present is freedom in Canada when Canadians were known and respected around the world for standing in the frontline in defence of freedom at home and abroad.
But we in the People's Party of Canada with Maxime Bernier as the leader are today's warriors for freedom, as were those Canadians landing on the beaches of Normandy in the summer of 1944. We are their faithful sons and daughters, and in our watch we will not allow Trudeau to erode our freedoms, and we will repeal Motion 103.
It is only in a free country where the potential of free individuals may be fully realized. Please join us and help Maxime and the People's Party of Canada in the 2019 election to be your representative, your tribune, your voice, your warriors always standing on guard for Canada.
