Let us rally to “FREE MARK WARAWA” on Monday, April 15, 2013, the 1st day of the new Parliament sitting. It will be a greeting for the MP’s to remember.
My telephone no. is 613-726-1536
We know that, in Jesus name, this will work, for it is His Father’s will, our Father’s will, God’s will, that we live in freedom of thought and conscience according to His will. We will make this an act of love (as Jesus taught us) for our little innocent brothers and, especially for our little sisters who are being selected to be killed in the womb as gendercide. Jesus taught us this love in the beatitudes, one of which was: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after justice for they shall be satisfied.”
Let us proceed.
PART VII – GENERAL
PRIMACY OF CONSTITUTION OF CANADA
52.- (1) The Constitution of Canada is the supreme law of Canada, and any law that is inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution is, to the extent of the inconsistency, of no force or effect.
The Constitution Act, 1982
Citation: The Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (UK), 1982, c 11
CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS
Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law:
Guarantee of Rights and Freedoms
Rights and freedoms in Canada1. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.
Fundamental freedoms 2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
(a) freedom of conscience and religion;
(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
(c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
(d) freedom of association.
The muzzling of Mark Warawa is a totally outrageous power grab by Harper by means of denying our fundamental Canadian Charter right to freedom of speech.
The focus needs to be on our fundamental Charter right to free speech about abortion, or about any other topic for that matter. This is bare faced fascism by means of classic suppression of free speech rights in the process of establishing Canada as a police state. If Mr. Harper gets away with stifling this champion (Mark Warawa M.P.) of free speech for all of us, then we will have a de facto police state with Stephen Harper as our very real dictator. He has done his best to muzzle the rest of his MP’s, those like Brad Trost, Stephen Woodworth, Maurice Vellacott who readily come to mind. This bullying by Harper is truly frightening following our Supreme court justices having just finished denying that Bill Whatcott can use the truth as a defence against hate speech charges. That was a turning point in denying everyone’s right to free speech. This is a major testing of our will to oppose this most serious breach of this nearly most fundamental Charter right, save our right to life. Our country is in it’s most serious crisis of our democracy ever. We must not allow Dictatorial Harper to put a chill on us with this, or else Canada will no longer be the free democracy that our forefathers fought two World Wars and the Korean war and most recently the Afghanistan war in order to defend our Charter Freedom so that Canada can stand “Strong and Free”.
Freedom of speech for Mark Warawa means free speech for all Canadians, but this denial of his freedom of speech will be a denial of freedom of speech for the rest of us Canadians. When our M.P.’s can be muzzled, what will happen to us ordinary Canadians who are relatively powerless in the House of Commons? Bill Whatcott was muzzled, prosecuted and penalized by the Supreme Court of Canada for telling the truth, for showing the truth. The truth is no defence, they say; truly frightening for our Charter Right to freedom of speech and expression.
Let us all rally around the “Freedom Flame” on the grounds of parliament hill in peaceful and respectful defiance of these dangerous suppressors of Free Speech and their leader, Harper. And let’s do it this Monday! The urgency is great, for our fundamental freedom is being eroded quickly and dramatically by the muzzling of our elected MP’s, and then the rest of us eventually in turn.
Let’s contact everyone we can, especially the MPs. on the “star chamber”, lackey committee who have dared to commit such an outrage on us all. I’ll follow up with everyone else whom I can think of. The Parliamentary “muzzlers” are in for a desperate fight. We must act now and not let up until these bullies are defeated, but we can do it peacefully in the method which our beloved Saviour has taught us when He told Peter to put up his sword in the Garden of Gethsemane. Gandhi and King have well shown us that Jesus’ method of non-violent protest and assertion of our rights works like nothing else. Look at what they have shown us can be done: the freeing of a whole nation, and a whole race of people in the Blacks of America. Why should we be surprised, for this peaceful method comes from Jesus, from God Himself, always with love for each other as St. Paul noted in his essay on love in 1 Corinthians:13: “Love is patient and kind … etc..
We can defeat this “gang of fifteen” and their henchmen in the manner of peaceful advocacy, resistance and protest as Jesus, Gandhi and King taught us, in a method of subsidiarity and grassroots action.
You must stand down Mr. Harper. We are coming to defeat you on this . You will have your “Waterloo’, make no mistake!!!”
We will be “Warawa’s Warriors” for Freedom of Speech according to our Charter Rights. We will put a halt to this steep slippery slope of the erosion of our Charter Freedoms.
On Monday, April 15th, the first day of the next sitting of Parliament, when Parliament resumes, I am going to be there with my bullhorn, my “Free Mark Warawa” sign, my symbolical muzzle, my Canadian flag, and the armour of my prayers to Almighty God who has the real power. Initially gathering on the sidewalks of Wellington Street until 11:50 am, we will walk quietly, and without displaying our signs and flags to the “Freedom Flame” at the foot of Parliament Hill where we will begin with a prayer. Fr Tony will be there as usual. After the prayer, flags unfurled and signs displayed, we will sing “O CANADA”. MP’S are invited to join us and speak about our Charter Right to Freedom of Speech and its importance to our democracy. Everyone who loves freedom of speech, come and join us. Spread the word through the grapevine of word of mouth, telephoning, emailing, blogging, facebooking and twittering to all who love freedom.
We will “Occupy the Freedom Flame” on Parliament Hill so that P.M. Harper will act as a true democrat and agree to the fundamental Freedom of Speech Charter Right of Mark Warawa to put forward his motion 408 in Parliament according to his right as an M.P..
See you all there!!!
God Bless You (GBY) all.

March 26, 2013: Sex-Selection Abortion
Member of Parliament Warawa’s M-408 now – who’s next?

By Patricia Maloney
New Canadian Member of Parliament Mark WarawaThe democratic process is alive and well in Canada…except when it comes to any subject related to prenatal human life.
We see this time and time again on our campuses, in our Parliament, in our media, and now we see it even affecting private member’s business (PMB). PMB is not government business. It is individual member’s chance to introduce motions or bills that they or their constituents feel is important.
On Thursday last week, MP Mark Warawa’s Private Member’s Motion 408, “that the House condemn discrimination against females occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination” was deemed non-votable by the Subcommittee on Private Members’ Business of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs.
This means that the motion will not be allowed to go before Parliament to be voted on by members in the House. Yet according to an impartial Library of Parliament analyst, M-408 passed all the votability criteria and therefore should have been deemed votable, according to strict rules of the House.
Yet representatives from all three parties unanimously voted against it.
Pro-lifers have grown used to having MPs vote against anything that attempts to provide any legal protection for the unborn. However to date, our elected representatives have been at least allowed to bring forward private member’s bills and motions. Now it seems that avenue might be closing as well.
One would think that the opposition parties would at least stand up for democracy if they can’t bring themselves to ever stand up for the unborn. In this case, however, they sided with the Conservative MP on the committee.
Unless someone can provide evidence to the contrary, we can only assume that all three parties were whipped into voting against allowing the Motion to proceed to a vote [that is, were told by their respective parties how to vote].
It is a well known fact that Prime Minister Harper will never bring forward abortion legislation, and all other parties have an official “pro-choice” stand on abortion. There is unanimous distaste amongst all political parties for anything remotely related to abortion. But so what?
Parliament is supposed to exist to serve the people. Parliament is not supposed to exist to serve the politicians.
Since the parties represent the people–all the people, even those they don’t agree with–all viewpoints must be respected, discussed and debated as the public wishes. This motion had a lot of public support, and a recent (2011) Environics poll told us that 92% of Canadians are against sex selective abortions. In fact, leaders from all the major parties spoke out against sex selection prior to the introduction of this motion. To all of a sudden unilaterally prevent our elected MPs from voting on this issue in Parliament, is a perversion of the democratic process that is our right.
Democracy in Canada should not apply only when it is convenient for our political leaders. When we allow this kind of behaviour, that arbitrarily deems some topics worthy of discussion and others not worthy, democracy loses its meaning.
All three parties are pro-choice. If the democratic process can be subverted simply because of a pre-existing bias by those in power, it is only a matter of time before another topic suffers the same fate.
Mr. Warawa will be appealing the non-votability ruling to the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (PROC) on Wednesday. If the PROC committee upholds the non-votability ruling, Mr. Warawa has said he will take the unprecedented step of appealing that ruling to the House where a secret ballot of all Members will take place over the course of two days. That vote will determine whether or not M-408 will be allowed to proceed to a vote. In effect, it will be a vote for or against democracy in our Canadian Parliament.
It is quite a sad irony that something so small and vulnerable as the child in the womb can instill so much fear in our political leaders, that they are willing to sacrifice one of our most cherished Canadian values–democracy itself–in order to shield themselves from the truth about what abortion involves.
