Shortages in the Land of Plenty: God save the King

“The land of Canada is solely owned by King Charles III, who is also our head of state.  Only 9.7% of the total land is privately owned while the rest is Crown Land” (World Atlas).  Canada’s Crown Land is a “territorial area belonging to the Monarch, who personifies the crown.  It is the equivalent of an entailed estate and passes with the monarchy, being inseparable from it” (Wikipedia).  The 1982 Constitution, which was supposed to turn Crown land ownership over to Canada, never got royal assent.   The subsequent Meech Lake (1987) and Charlottown Accords (1992) failed to remove the subject to clause that Quebec required to ratify the Constitution.  Aboriginal rights have never been formalized as a result either.  Ownership of Canada has been left in the hands of the single biggest landowner on earth – an uninspiring dude who had a lucky accident of birth.

When Justin Trudeau was sworn in as Prime Minister of Canada, he pledged an oath to the Queen of England and her descendants.  Every Parliamentarian has to as well.  New Canadians also swear an oath to the monarch and not Canada.  It’s interesting that Canada has expanded immigration to unprecedented levels and over 2 million new immigrants have entered Canada since 2022.  If they apply for citizenship, their sworn oaths will be to King Charles III.   

It would seem that Colonialism is alive and well, even if we call it Globalism.  Trudeau has said repeatedly that “now is not the time to debate the monarchy’s role in Canada”.  That’s not surprising considering his sworn allegiance is first and foremost to the Monarch of England!  

Immigrants are arriving in unprecedented levels and are finding a nation that can’t even house its own citizens.  Those new immigrants also face a country steeped in runaway inflation, a fragile financial system and it’s dang cold here.  What a cruel welcome!  Government spending is madly out of control and we’ve seen deficit spending since Trudeau senior pledged his allegiance to the Queen of England in 1968.  He started us off on the road to financial ruin and most governments since have been more than willing to plunge us deeper and deeper into debt.  How is Trudeau junior going to afford to build the 700,000 new homes desperately needed to address the current shortage?  With his stated intention to bring in 500,000 future immigrants a year, it’s clear he hasn’t got a plan we’d support.

The official explanation for bringing in millions of new immigrants is that it will stimulate our flagging economy, an economy ruined by decades of governmental fiscal mismanagement.  

In the brave new world of Globalism, the promise of wealth for all has morphed into a “race to the bottom”.  The whole Western world is being flooded by desperate immigrants and the globalist leaders make it clear that in their new ordered world, borders won’t exist.  One could argue they don’t already.  Is that helping Canadians, migrants or the environment or is it helping the globalists who have cornered most of the world’s wealth in the last 50 years since the “globalist” experiment was launched?

It doesn’t benefit Canadians but it has been an incredible boon to the corporations who have deep connections to governments and privately controlled NGO’s like the WHO, the UN and the WEF, all of whom have garnered plenty of self-appointed power.  The globalists have all flown in their private jets to Davos for the WEF (World Economic Forum) annual meeting being held this week.  They are going to debate how to make life even more difficult for the working classes of the Western countries they seem intent to ruin.  King Charles has close ties to the WEF (as do Trudeau and Freeland) and has inserted himself into world politics when he should be nothing more than a figurehead.  He is the richest man in the world and he obviously has his own interests to protect.  

Canadians are rapidly waking up to the fact that “things aren’t right” and polls show that 75% are losing confidence in all levels of government.  Years of housing shortages, a disastrous COVID response and massive immigration are all part of the problem.  A failing health care system is happening at the same time that Canadian’s overall health status is dropping precipitously.  The list goes on.  

Globalism, like colonialism, has been an unmitigated disaster and ongoing worldwide instability has been the result.  I wonder if it’s time for a big rethink.
