On February 18, 2015, former Freedom Party of Ontario candidate Dr. Salim Mansur (professor of political science at Western University) appeared on CBC’s “Power and Politics”in his capacity of spokesperson for Muslims Facing Tomorrow (a pro-democracy, anti-theocratic group of Canadian Muslims) to discuss the federal government’s new anti-terrorism legislation. The other panelist was University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran.

Mansur’s position was that 14 years after 9/11, we still are unwilling to acknowledge the fact that the main terrorist threat in Canada is that posed by pro-Sharia, anti-democratic, Islamic theocrats. There will be problems balancing privacy and security in all legislation, but better action must be taken to identify those who have murdered Canadians, and who plan more of the same, argues Mansur.

Attaran condemns Mansur for singling out Islamic terrorism. He submits that Canada is safer than it has ever been and has done fairly well – in terms of the number of Islamic terrorist murders it has suffered, etc. – since 9/11. He argues that although the new legislation would not allow police to sexually assault or otherwise assault a suspect, it would allow them to threaten to do so. Attaran does not address how anyone would take such a threat seriously, if the law continues to prohibit following-through on such hollow threats. Continue reading »

2013-05-06.mckeever-thumbAUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

In this full episode of Andy Oudman’s radio show “London Today” (1290 CJBK AM – London), Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever speaks with Andy about two issues that had emerged in the provincial by-election in London West on July 30th, 2013.

On July 30th, the NDP campaign for candidate Peggy Sattler bought a front page “wrap” ad on the London Free Press which ad depicted poll data in a way that made it appear – falsely – as though the NDP were now leading in the polls for the riding. In addition, e-mails received by party leader Paul McKeever from concerned Londoners led McKeever to research and write a report in which Ontario PC candidate Ali Chahbar asked to clarify whether or not he has ever been a federal Conservative, whether he has been a Liberal supporter provincially, and whether he agrees with the toxic views expressed by his spouse and her “Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights” (SPHR) in 2004 and 2005. SPHR had erected what they called an “apartheid wall”, which they said was an “effigy” of the wall in Israel; they said that Israel was involved in apartheid and oppression (as against Palestinians), and accused Israelis of “genocide”.
