“While declaring his preference for progressive politics, Chief Justice Wagner referred repeatedly to the rule of law in his June 22 interview. He claimed that when it comes to upholding the rule of law, Canada provides a shining example to all the world… Yet one week earlier, he and five of his current colleagues issued a judgment against Trinity Western University (TWU) that trampled Charter freedoms into the ground, in the name of politically correct ‘diversity,’ a vague notion of ‘equity,’ an amorphous ‘public interest,’ and nebulous ‘Charter values’… The Court didn’t bother to define these feel-good terms, whose meaning must therefore be determined by the subjective feelings and personal opinions of individual judges.” – John Carpay, “Wagner’s progressive court rejects the Rule of Law” – The Post Millennial, July 24th, 2018. (This is an excellent article, you can read it in full here.)

“I am outspoken and prepared to tell truth to power. We have to be able to name the problems in order to solve them. Avoiding issues for political correctness is stupidity. I seek to be a representative. That means I listen to all taxpayers’ input, not just the special interests. I then try to implement the will of the majority.” – Hamilton mayoralty candidate Paul Fromm, quoted in the Hamilton Spectator story “Here are the aspiring mayors and councillors who want your vote this October” – July 27th, 2018.

“…when a majority demographic group believes it could become a minority, members of that group often become less supportive of democracy, preferring a strong ruler and harsh social controls, according to scholarly research on democratic decline… Forced to choose between putting democracy or identity first, people may not always pick democracy.” – Max Fisher, “Israel picks identity over democracy. More nations may follow” – New York Times, July 22nd, 2018.

“The federal government continues to pour people into the Golden Horseshoe. We’ve had over two million in the past 20 years, yet the infrastructure has remained, with the odd exception, the same… We have an infrastructure that worked pretty well in 1975, but now we’re 45 years on into the future and it isn’t working now… Mass immigration is the major component in traffic gridlock. It’s a double whammy. The government has not spent the money over the past 40 years to keep the infrastructure current and yet continues to bring in the people.” – Paul Fromm, quoted by Steve Arnold in “White nationalist Paul Fromm running for mayor of Hamilton Ont.” – Canadian Jewish News, July 26th, 2018.
