Rex Murphy joins Dr. Peterson to discuss the most recent actions of Trudeau’s Government, including the arresting of protestors, the freezing of the bank accounts of Canadians suspected of participating in the protests, and the long-term consequences of these extreme measures.
Rex is a Canadian commentator and author who deals primarily with Canadian political and social matters. He is best known for working on and for CBC Here and Now, CBC Radio 1’s Cross Country Checkup, writing for The Globe and Mail, and writing for The National Post. He is a well-recognized and loved figure.
Your video enumerates the reasons why I am embarrassed to be a Canadian right now really well. The fact that people who peacefully disagree with the government can have their bank accounts frozen has for me cemented a deep distrust in money, money in general, not just Canadian dollars. And your assertion that will affect our financial relations with the international community is spot on. I shared a video shared by a spanish youtuber on this subject with my colombian in-laws and they were terrified of the implications this action has for money.
The thing you mentioned that I hadn’t caught, though I have been harping on its possibility for years is the idea of retro-crime. People legally donated to a legal cause that was posteriorly declared illegal and now they are being punished for this. This is unacceptable and inevitable. I would caution everyone to be very careful about what data they leave available for the government to subpoena. Deal in cash and goods, relate offline.
Well worth the watch, thanks.
