Good morning Tracy,


Please see my email of this morning to our Senators expressing my deep concern over the implementation of a universal basic income. I trust that you will be voting against any attempts to implement such a program, and that you will continue to fight for the rights of honest, hardworking Canadians as the current government continues to wage war upon us.


Thank you and have a lovely week.

Senators,


I write to you this morning as a concerned citizen of this country. As you are aware, over the past seven years there has been a systematic assault on democracy and autonomy in Canada, initiated by the minority Liberal Party and usually aided and abetted by the NDP and Bloc Quebecois. As an average Canadian, I do not feel represented in any way by the current government; its actions are irrational, overreaching and intended to place a higher tax burden on myself and other hard-working Canadians who are trying to pay our mortgages and save for our childrens’ university education and our retirement. The latest example of this overreach is Bill S-233: as you are aware, this Bill would provide for a “national framework for guarantee livable basic income to address inequality and division”. I note that the proponents of this Bill, including Senator Pate, argue that a livable basic income is required to aid people in poverty who are “easy prey for populist opportunists”, and to ensure no one lives below the poverty line. I am concerned both with this Bill, and these statements, for the following reasons:

  • It does not take an economist to realize that providing everyone (sorry – I’m assuming that means “everyone but the middle class, who will be footing the bill as per usual”) with a minimum income will only serve to increase the cost of living in this country for each Canadian. We have seen it time and again: every time minimum wage increases, the cost of food and services raises proportionately because this is the only way for employers and service providers to recoup their additional costs. In much the same way, providing everyone with $2,000 per month will increase government spending, as well as the burden on the taxpayer, which of course will increase the cost of both private and government services in this country.

  • Speaking of economics, who exactly is paying for this program? I jest – we all know who is going to pay. I’m just wondering what you think the breaking point for Canadians will be: is it when their tax payments hit 60% of their income? 65%? 70%? If your goal is to create a country in which ingenuity and entrepreneurship disappear, and in which mediocrity thrives, this Bill could not be more perfectly crafted. And just a reminder, here is the national debt clock: https://www.debtclock.ca/, which shows that our debt is growing by $391,506,849 each day.

  • The recent illegal and unconstitutional actions of the Liberal Government in violating peaceful protestors’ privacy and directing financial institutions to unlawfully freeze their bank accounts offers us a window into the real purpose of this Bill. The suppression of free speech of the Freedom Convoy leaders as a term of bail is yet another example of how this Government intends to silence its opponents through legislation. Once the majority of the population is entirely reliant on the government for financial security, it will be easy to quash dissent and silence critics of the government. One can easily imagine a future in which one’s basic income payment is tied to an agreement to accept a vaccination (or other experimental medical treatment), or an agreement not to attend a peaceful protest, or indeed an agreement to sign away one’s Charter rights and freedoms.

  • I must admit, I had to google “populist opportunist”, and I’m not sure that even now, I understand what this term means. Given that “populist” refers to the people, I’m assuming that it is the Government’s position that a “populist opportunist” is someone who rallies the citizens of this country to promote a system that benefits the majority, instead of solely benefitting the elites currently residing in Ottawa? If this is the case, thank you for admitting that the goal of this Bill is to bribe the good citizens of this country so that they don’t fight the Government as it works to systemically remove rights, quash free speech and turn this country into a zombified version of Venezuela. I think I speak for the majority of Canadians when I say, no thank you. I do not consent.

Of course, one could spend all day identifying problems with this Bill. It is clumsy, overly broad and not in line with Canadian values. I am so disheartened that I have to keep fighting to retain my fundamental freedoms and rights in this country. Not a week goes by where I don’t have to email some governmental representative to express my concern at the treatment of the Canadian population and the malevolent actions that are taking place at all levels of government. It is disgusting, demoralizing and treasonous.

Again, I would like to remind you of the inevitable fallout of your actions, should you choose to proceed on this course:

  • The smart, hardworking and ambitious citizens of Canada will leave. This is, of course, already happening as many Canadians flee to Mexico, Panama and other non-globalist countries. And let’s sit back for a minute and contemplate a world where Canadians are fleeing to third world countries to escape their government. You must all be so proud of your legacy?

  • Canada will follow the economic and political path of Venezuela. I hope you all enjoy paying for your bread with gold flakes, and eating your pets when the grocery shelves are empty? And don’t forget that when Mr. Trudeau obtains his “basic dictatorship”, each one of you will have outlived your utility to him. I look forward to welcoming you to the ghetto.

  • Canadians will eventually wake up, and there will be a revolt. Whether it happens in your lifetime or not, this is the inevitable course of socialism because it always fails, and it always kills a large portion of the population in the process.

I have always been proud to call myself a Canadian because of the values this country has promoted. Unfortunately, at this point I am just counting down the months until I, too, will have to flee this country before Mr. Trudeau achieves his goal of turning Canada into a third world country and starts executing dissidents. I urge you each to start defending Canadians against the Liberal Government, and to start correcting the course of this country. Canadians are tired, demoralized and angry with the current government, and I assure you that will not change with the promise of a $2,000 monthly paycheque (provided, of course, in our worthless Weimar currency thanks to Mr. Trudeau’s allegiance to the globalist agenda).
