Canada's Ontario goes for a police state in the name of COVID suppression
By Thomas Lifson

A new police state has been established just north of the states of Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. The Province of Ontario is home to over 38% of the population of Canada and is 55% bigger in area than the State of Texas, and it is now acting like a nightmarish police state.

CTV News reports:

The Ontario government is giving police temporary powers to enforce its stay-at-home order and allowing them to stop individuals and vehicles and ask their reasons for leaving their homes. ...

"We have made the deliberate decision to temporarily enhance police officers' authority for the duration of the stay-at-home order. Moving forward, police will have the authority to require any individual who is not in a place of residence to first provide the purpose for not being at home and provide their home address," Jones said.

"Police will also have the authority to stop a vehicle to inquire about an individual's reason for leaving their residence."

So much for freedom of movement or assembly. Unless the police deem your presence outside your prison cell home essential, you could be in for trouble.

Those who will not comply will be issued a ticket, Jones said. The province has not provided further details on possible fines, but she said under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, penalties for non-compliance are set at a minimum of $750.

I find the excerpts from the news conference announcing these changes deeply troubling, just looking at the faces and listening to the tone of these authoritarians as they try to justify their seizure of power over the details of ordinary life. George Orwell would recognize them...

Ontarian police and local authorities are not necessarily enthusiastic about exercising these new powers to detain citizens and examine their motives for daring to leave home:

A spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service said they are reviewing the new orders.

"Prior to any change in our enforcement strategy, we will notify the public on how we plan to implement the new provincial orders," spokesperson Allison Sparkes said.

Several police services have said Friday that they will not be randomly stopping people. They include Waterloo Regional Police, Peterborough Police, Guelph Police, London Police and Ottawa Police.

Toronto Mayor John Tory expressed his concerns over the new police powers, saying in a tweet that he will review the regulations carefully and will discuss them with the medical officer of health and the police chief.

Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie also said stopping people arbitrarily "is not how we get control of the virus." She added that she will speak to the chief of Peel police and public health to look at how it will be enforced.

It sounds as if the provincial authorities are drawing their inspiration from China's early response with drastic lockdowns. At least so far, they are not discussing welding doors shut to trap people inside. They might also consider the disaster across their own border in Michigan, where Governor Gretchen Whitmer's drastic lockdown regulations have led to one of if not the worst problems with COVID in the United States, while free states like Texas and Florida do much better.

I'd be a lot more impressed if, instead of trying to keep people indoors, where the virus spreads far more readily than outdoors, they focused in early therapeutic intervention in cases of COVID, using ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine, both widely used and relatively benign pharmaceuticals, that inhibit reproduction of the virus and often have been shown to slow and even stop the effects.

What do they expect after letting their courts eviscerate freedom of speech?

It's like Canada doesn't have a Charter of Freedoms (their Bill of Rights) anymore.

Hell, on paper they have more rights than even we do (Freedom of Thought, Freedom of Belief, etc) but in reality, not really. It's like they have a Soviet Constitution.

No business in our town has ever required masks and all county sheriffs give zero fucks. I feel bad for you guys.

Nobody asked anybody for essential worker permits in the bay area. Never wore a mask and never got stopped a single time, traveling freely to and from wine country, tahoe (stayed on the Nevada side though for the period where CA hotels were closed) and other destinations. Only a few (male and female) Karens shrieked, I told them to fuck off

Do they have Trump2 in charge over there?


Peter Juni, the scientific director of the table, said he was “at a loss” trying to understand why the provincial government announced a suite of measures that didn’t account for his group’s advice.

Nathan Stall, a physician and the assistant scientific director of the table’s secretariat, said he was dumbfounded by the government’s rejection of science and common sense.

Andrew Morris, an infectious-disease specialist and also a member of the table, said his reaction Friday was a mixture of shock, disbelief, anger and sadness.

Alison Thompson, a member of the Ontario COVID-19 Health System Response Bioethics Table, another group advising the Ford government, said she and her colleagues were stunned, especially by the absence of enhanced protections for essential workers.

During that horrible spring/summer, most of the cops had enough common sense not to pull over the regular driver.

I was never pull over.

They used the ordinance to pull over teenagers and 20-something partiers

From that link:

“With the legislation we will be tabling, it won’t matter whether or not the company is Canadian,” said Guilbeault.

“It won’t matter where the company is registered or where their servers are located. Once a publication is flagged it will have to be taken down within 24 hours of having it being flagged. There are not a lot of countries that are doing that right now.


I'm not sure how this authoritarian piece of worm stool thinks they can enforce something like this across borders, but just the fact that they are even talking about it is chilling. The rocket sled to absolute dystopian tyranny is in high gear. I never, never, never in my life imagined something like this would happen.

Canadian men are raised to play hockey. That's about it for at least 50% of them. If they don't play hockey they're outcasts or get into gay liberal stuff. You really only have two paths in Canada. Sure you could be a doctor or lawyer, but you'll still be the outcast in Canada that couldn't make it in hockey as a man.

I don't have an understanding of Canadian women outside of Rin's view.

You can play basketball and wear a Boston Celtics no 33 jersey and you're still ok, though you'll be dubbed as a Yankee-wannabe. It's strange but everyone I'd known up north, have some sort of mythical respect for the Boston Celtics, whereas the Boston Bruins were hated along with many of the other hockey franchises within the lower 48.

Anglo-Canadian women are not much different from their USA counterparts in the sense that they're entitled and bitchy.

The Quebecoise, however, are the more feminine (if not Femme Fatale, when doing naughty things), North American version of a European courtesan.

You know it better than I do. I don't think NE Canadians are the same as the rest. Obviously the French twist. Ontario province to the west (most the country) is all hockey sports wise. They're born and raised to do it.

I'm sure people have watched it, but Letterkenny is a perfect example of Canadian culture. My BIL is Canadian. Sure it's a comedy, but it's not all that far off with central and Western Canadians that I know.

Yes, but the population of those provinces, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, & Alberta is some ~18% of the Canadian population and yes, their exposure to sports is pretty much hockey as only Toronto and Montreal (up until 2004), fielded competitive NBA or MLB teams.

As for Ontario, they have a sick hockey rivalry between Toronto and Ottawa which makes the Celtics-Lakers or the Red Sox-Yankees clashes look like some gentlemen's disagreement.

And trust me, as a native Bostonian, that Celtics-Lakers thing goes back to even before my dad's time. And I don't even want to get into baseball as that's another can of worms with Babe Ruth tossing a piano into a Massachusetts lake.

https://notthebee.com/article/another-church-in-canada-has-been-forcibly-closed-for-defying-lockdown-orders

Trinity Bible Chapel in Ontario has refused to close, despite more than $40 million in fines and harassment of its members. Months ago, the church published a statement explaining why they believe this defiance honors Christ.

This weekend, authorities forcibly locked the doors...

Here is part of Senior Pastor Jacob Reaume's full statement in response:

"Today, a court granted the Province of Ontario the authority to take our facility, at least until next Saturday, with the option of trying to get it for longer by going to court once again this coming week. For some of those eleven months in our facility, we have met in contravention of provincial dictates. We have participated in what the public health people consider high risk behavior, namely the millennia old tradition of gathering weekly to worship our Creator. Not one of our pastors has ever buried someone who has died of COVID. We have around 600,000 people who live in this region. There are 588 active cases of COVID in the region, with 32 people in the ICU with COVID. That's enough to deem the public worship of Jesus Christ dangerous and enough for the Province of Ontario to kick us off our land and bar our doors shut. I'm not saying we'll never bury someone who dies of COVID. I'm not saying COVID hasn't brought harm. I'm only saying our experience doesn't line up with the hysteria whipped up by government and media, nor do the numbers warrant turning control of the Bride of Christ over to the Premier of Ontario."

"They took our building because they think that will stop us from worshipping. For twenty years our church has worshipped together each Lord's Day, and we've only met in our own building for eleven months. So the best part of our history we have not owned a building. We managed just fine to gather together without our own building, and now we don't have our own building again. The early church met in the catacombs under Rome. The Covenanters met in fields. John Bunyan led his services in forests. Churches find ways to worship together, as surely as water flows downhill."

"They stole our building, at least temporarily. We'll keep our worship. And we'll keep our fellowship. Many churches around these parts think they still own their buildings, but they already voluntarily handed their buildings and their people and their worship over to Caesar months ago. We just forced Caesar to come and take the building, but we've kept the church. Caesar can have the brick and mortar. We've kept the church for Jesus."

It looks as if the Canadian bill C-10 for Internet censorship would have to involve something similar to China's Great Firewall. They'll just block all access to the destination. Of course, tech geeks won't be deterred, but it will work for the majority.
