Landlord keeps his shoes on, loses everything else http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2641-landlord-keeps-his-shoes-on-loses-everything-else http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2641-landlord-keeps-his-shoes-on-loses-everything-else

A landlord in Canada has sold his home to pay the $12,000 fine levied by a human rights tribunal that ruled he harassed Muslim tenants.  

"I don't have any money. It has just shattered me," John Albi, 53, said of the $12,000 fine imposed by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

The tribunal levied the fine in April. It ruled that Albi created a "poisoned housing environment" when he refused to take off his shoes when asked by the Muslim couple who were renting the ground floor of his Brampton home, The Toronto Sun reported at the time. 

"It's something of a fascist or totalitarian regime," observes Dr. Charles McVety, who has fought Canada's left-wing progressivism as president of Canada Christian College.

McVety compares the Human Rights Tribunal to a Soviet-era court, where evidence and defense don't matter.

"They are coming up with just the most insane attacks on Canadian freedom," he warns.

In a follow-up story in May, the Sun revealed that Albi is a Nigerian who came to Canada two decades earlier. The apartment rental helped pay the home's mortgage, he explained, and he had been doing so for 15 years before the Muslim couple filed a complaint against him.

Gay Privilege? http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2619-gay-privilege http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2619-gay-privilege

Gay Privilege?

Canada was founded upon principles that recognize the rule of law. "Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination" according to our Charter. However though, there is one group that appears to be above the law, who can violate the law with impunity and even gain the blessing, funding and participation of the Prime Minister. 

Every year gay's march down Toronto streets fully nude, visually violating little children. They clearly break law "174 (1) Every one who, without lawful excuse, (a) is nude in a public place." Imagine if this was your little girl and boy out shopping at the Dollar Store and then accosted with male genitalia. 

Gays not only can skirt the law they can order the police around. This year the Pride Committee discriminated against police, banning them from the parade while still enjoying $260,000 tax payer dollars and even have Mayor John Tory revel as police are snubbed.

If are regular citizen did this, he would be arrested. If any group tried to dictate to the police they would be rejected. Where is equality before the law? Is this gay privilege?

Don't be duped by Trudeau's carbon pricing plan http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2581-don-t-be-duped-by-trudeau-s-carbon-pricing-plan http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2581-don-t-be-duped-by-trudeau-s-carbon-pricing-plan

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon pricing plan released Thursday by Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna is a political fraud.

It will not achieve the government’s promised industrial greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for 2020 or 2030.

It will increase the cost of living for Canadians, adding hundreds of dollars to their annual household bills, year after year.

The plan says that by 2022, we will be paying an estimated 11.6 cents more per litre of gas alone, solely due to carbon pricing.

It omits that after that, we’ll be paying even more, as Canada’s carbon price continues to rise.

Trudeau's Bail-In Now Law to Allow Banks to Confiscate Your Deposits http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2274-trudeau-s-bail-in-now-law-to-allow-banks-to-confiscate-your-deposits http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/2274-trudeau-s-bail-in-now-law-to-allow-banks-to-confiscate-your-deposits

On June 22, 2016 Bill C-15 became law along with its controversial "Bail-In Regime". In the crash of 2008 governments "bailed out" banks with billions of dollars. The next time around banks will be permitted to seize your deposits and exchange them for shares, shares in a failed bank.

Some say that Canadian banks are so strong Canadians don't have to worry. But the experts say "Canada is in Serious Trouble". DBRS, Moody's and Standard and Poors all have downgraded Canadian banks to a "negative" outlook. The Bank of Canada says our housing market is 30% overvalued, Deutsche Bank says 63% and CMHC says 35%. With average house prices now over $1.3 million in Toronto and Vancouver, a crash appears imminent.

On behalf of the now 148,000 members of the Institute for Canadian Values and conservative thinking Canadians we ask delegates to reject Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown's Promises to Liberalize the Federal Conservative Party.

Canadians are sick and tired of politicians saying one thing and doing the opposite. After receiving support of conservative voters so many leaders betray their supporters and adopt liberal policies. We are concerned that some may make this happen to the Conservative Party.

Rex Murphy has given a thoughtful and provoking insight on how we as Canadians should approach the Refugee crisis. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised to accept 25,000 Syrian Refugees by the end of this year. After the France attacks, where one of the attackers was an ISIS militant that entered the country under Refugee status, keeping to the schedule put forward by Prime Minister Trudeau is even more dangerous for the Canadian public than it was before the France attacks.

The Darkest Day -Three Things America Lost on June 26th

Morality - Children - Freedom

1. Morality - Jesus Christ forecast 2000 years ago that in the last days it would be like the days of Lot and Noah where right would become wrong and wrong, right. SCOTUS has established a new morality where Christians are against the law and are now considered immoral, just like racists.

2. Children - Parents no longer have the right to determine their children's education. They will now be taught radical sex education under the power of the law and that their parents are immoral, haters.

We had great success on April 14th as 5,000 Ontario citizens from all walks of life joined together at Queens Park demanding Premier Wynne put an end to her radical Sex Ed Agenda. Media sources across the province and the across the nation are recognizing that the strong majority of parents do not want their children being taught six different genders and other age inappropriate sexual content.

With your continued support this is a fight that we can win! It has been and will continue to be an expensive campaign, but it is one of extreme importance. Nothing is more precious than the hearts and minds of our children and we will not rest until this curriculum is at the very least thoroughly re-examined.

Why Does BMO Hate Christians? http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/1098-why-does-bmo-hate-christians http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/1098-why-does-bmo-hate-christians

Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms begins by stating "Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law". The Bank of Montreal has decided to turn its back on these principles with a campaign against Christians. BMO's opening salvo was to attack the Christian standards of Trinity Western University. BMO has now expanded their war by attacking Christian legal suppliers doing business with the bank.

On March 26th, 2014 the Bank of Montreal wrote a scathing letter to the Law Society of Upper Canada entitled "RE: Accreditation of Trinity Western University's ("TCU") proposed law school program". The missive states "The purpose of this letter is to request the Law Society deny the accreditation of any legal educational programs, recognized for the admission of the bar of Ontario, that are discriminatory." BMO was successful as the Law Society denied Trinity Western.

As reports come in of more than 40 Churches burning, hundreds of Christian homes torched and Christians being shot in the streets of Egypt, it is unconscionable for Western leaders to offer words of support for the attackers and not act to protect the innocent.

We need to demand that President Barack Obama, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor Angela Merkel and other state leaders do everything in their power to protect Christians in Egypt and refrain from actions and words supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

Winston Churchill once remarked, ‘I will not be neutral as between the fire and the firemen.’ We ask world leaders not cower to neutrality as the flames burn but boldly support the “firemen” attempting to douse the flames of this moral calamity.

Join the Pastors, Rabbis and leaders in a effort to stop the bloodshed.

The make up of a society is a group of people with common territory, interaction, culture and infrastructure. Culture is the complexity of religion, knowledge, beliefs, arts, laws, morals and customs.

 

One of the key platforms that affect and mold culture in any given society is media. In modern society television, newspapers, radio, magazines, movies, advertising and social media have become the major sources of information and education.

Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney - Canadian Bail-in May Include Customer's Deposits http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/537-bank-of-canada-governor-mark-carney-canadian-bail-in-may-include-customer-s-deposits http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/dr-mcvety/537-bank-of-canada-governor-mark-carney-canadian-bail-in-may-include-customer-s-deposits

In an interview this week, Mark Carney, Canada's top financial regulator, spoke about the bail in as a component addressing systemic financial institutions as being "absolutely necessary", and "that this is an area where the largest banks of the world are very focused." "Mr. Carney offered no guarantee that depositors would not have their funds confiscated under the new bail-in regime outlined in Canada's proposed 2013 budget."

On March 21st, 2013, Prime Minister Stephen Harper had his Finance Minister Jim Flaherty present their 2013 Budget that included a "Bail-In Regime" on page 145. The clause will allow banks to convert liabilities into capital in times of need. The recent events in Cyprus, coupled with the G20 agreement in Mexico City-2012, suggest that this so called bail-in scheme may be used to plunder the savings of Canadians.

Much of her tenure overlapped Brian Mulroney's as Canada's prime minister. Consensus politics was an epithet to her with her brand of conviction politics, while it defined Mulroney's efforts at constitutional reform and keeping a restive caucus and Cabinet united. But his personality and persistence won her over even as he admonished her on apartheid in South Africa and the need for tougher Commonwealth sanctions. At the 1988 G7 summit in Toronto, she sparkled in personal support asking him "Did we win?" as Mulroney waited for word on a critical by-election in Quebec that would bring Lucien Bouchard into the House of Commons and kick start a second majority PC government win that fall

Benedict Option Is 'Spiritually Lazy,' Christians Shouldn't Withdraw From Politics, Scholars Say http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/188-christian-congress/2647-benedict-option-is-spiritually-lazy-christians-shouldn-t-withdraw-from-politics-scholars-say http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/188-christian-congress/2647-benedict-option-is-spiritually-lazy-christians-shouldn-t-withdraw-from-politics-scholars-say

Scholars and defenders of religious liberty are responding to a bestselling book that argues Christians should strategically and temporarily withdraw from politics, calling its implications "spiritually lazy."

At a panel discussion sponsored by The Institute on Religion and Democracy at the National Press Club Wednesday night before a crowd of 75 people, five panelists offered both praise and criticisms of Rod Dreher's book The Benedict Option, which has received considerable buzz this year.

The book explains at great length how dramatically American culture has shifted away from Judeo-Christian norms and argues that Christians who value theological orthodoxy must create conscience-forming communities patterned after Benedict of Nursia, an Italian monk who lived from 487-547. Such an effort is necessary if the Christian faith is to survive the onslaught from an increasingly hostile secular progressives.

Canadian Pastors Call for the Same Religious Freedoms Granted Today by President Trump http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/188-christian-congress/2565-canadian-pastors-call-for-the-same-religious-freedoms-granted-today-by-president-trump http://www.canadiantimes.ca/ct2/index.php/columnists/188-christian-congress/2565-canadian-pastors-call-for-the-same-religious-freedoms-granted-today-by-president-trump

President Donald Trump signed an executive order today rescinding the notorious Johnson Amendment to the IRS tax code that allowed the government to attack religious organizations if its leaders spoke for or against any political leader.

President Trump cited the numerous abuses where the government had attacked Martin Luther King Jr, Little Sisters of the Poor and 50 other religious organizations. President Trump called for an end to such attacks by removing the government's authority to do so while he trumpeted the fact that America was built upon the foundation of religious freedom.

As the President of the Evangelical Association, its 1,150 pastors and Canada Christian College and School of Graduate Theological Studies and its 6,120 graduates in ministry, Dr. Charles McVety states "Canada's Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, speech and association in section 2 and equality in section 14 therefore on behalf of my pastors and religious leaders across Canada, I ask Prime Minister Trudeau to fulfill his election campaign promise and remove CRA's authority to punish charities for speaking out. In addition I believe it was wrong for former Prime Minister Harper to target sixty charities for punitive measures as all charities must be afforded the same freedom that all Canadians experience."

President Donald Trump on Thursday made good on a promise to allow religious organizations greater freedom in political speech.

"Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding and the soul of our nation," Trump said in the Rose Garden at a National Day of Prayer event with religious leaders and White House staff. "We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore."

The president declared his administration would be "leading by example" on religious liberty in the United States.

"We are giving our churches their voices back," Trump said.
