Objective 17 of the pact commits the government to “promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internet-based information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media.”
I love the way they throw that last part in — “in full respect for the freedom of the media” — as if the entire paragraph preceding it didn’t just negate the notion of press freedom.
After reading the UN pact, I’m beginning to realize that Trudeau’s ill-considered “Welcome to Canada” tweet to the world was likely deliberate, as well as the language he uses to normalize illegal crossings. The pact seeks to make migration — for any reason — a recognized right. As for the rights of the receiving nation to object to having their borders overrun? Well, now you’re just being racist.
M-103 — the non-binding motion that condemns Islamophobia — has been in the works for years under the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, which have a disproportionate influence at the UN. Last week, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said there needs to be an international convention to ban speech that is insulting to Muslims. Looks like that is part of the migration pact, too. There’s more.
Bill C-69, the bill that will make it impossible to build pipelines, and Bill C-48, the bill that bans tanker traffic off the northern B.C. coast, are also deliberate. Landlocking Alberta oil and crushing our energy industry flows from the unrealistic commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions committed to in the Paris Accord, which is also referenced in the migration pact.
According to Mansur, the $600-million media bailout is the last piece of the strategy to ensure compliance by financially punishing those outlets that don’t play along with the new speech and thought code.
I suppose one way to look at it is there is no reason to worry when Trudeau signs the pact next week because he’s already implemented the key provisions of it. The other way of looking at it is this: when did we give our prime minister the unilateral authority to sign away our sovereignty?
