free speech in Canada

A pastor in Calgary, Alberta defied the authorities during a Passover service this year, telling them to leave, and calling them Nazis. Later, he and his brother were arrested. That pastor, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca) joins us today. He is the Founder of Street Church Ministries in Calgary. He recaps his arrest and compares it to the tactics of the communist authorities he witnessed growing up in Poland. He came to Canada to escape totalitarianism and he fears that we are seeing it blossom here in the West now. Judaism and Christianity are being singled out while other religions are left alone. There is a spiritual battle taking place but a lot of churches don't seem willing to go to battle. They will need to if they are to survive.

We notice that freedoms are starting to erode in the United States, but how are the other countries in the Westersphere faring? We begin this week by looking at a couple of stories from our neighbors to the north. Joining us is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine and current Canadian citizen. She looks at Bill C10 which would limit private user's speech online if the government doesn't approve of it. She also examines how two people have been arrested simply for attending a church in Ontario Province that defied lockdown orders and held a service. Backlash is building in Canada, but is it too little too late?

We then turn our attention to Australia where John was a guest on Joshua Ferrara's podcast recently. The two discuss the importance of worldviews and the friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics. They also look at how Australia is handling political correctness and methods employed by leftists against conservatives who won't put up with the woke agenda. Totalitarianism doesn't happen all at once; it occurs gradually over time. It's important to spot the increments and stop it before it's too late.

There are disturbing news stories coming from our neighbor to the north and here today to talk about them is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine and current Canadian citizen. She looks at Bill C10 which would limit private user's speech online if it happens to be speech the government doesn't like. She also discusses how two people have been arrested simply for attending a church in Ontario Province that defied lockdown orders and held a service. She gives the backgrounds of both speech oppression and religious freedom in Canada. There is backlash building against these measures. Totalitarianism doesn't happen all at once; it occurs gradually over time. It's important to spot the increments and stop it before it's too late.
