|We sure came a long way in the abrogation
of our fundamental rights and freedoms.
For anyone trying to understand the evolution
of constitutional rights, there is a comprehensive library of constitutional documents for many
One of the links shown there leads to the
English Bill of Rights
(just after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 which established a constitutionally limited
monarchy after the abdication and flight from England of James II)
It is a must for anyone to understand what is in the English Bill of Rights and what
led to its creation.
The 1689 Bill of Rights
An Act for declaring the rights and liberties of the subject and settling the
succession of the crown.
WHEREAS THE LORDS SPIRITUAL AND TEMPORAL, AND COMMONS, ASSEMBLED AT WESTMINSTER,
LAWFULLY, FULLY, AND FREELY REPRESENTING ALL THE ESTATES OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS REALM, DID
UPON THE THIRTEENTH DAY OF FEBRUARY, IN 1689, PRESENT UNTO THEIR MAJESTIES THEN CALLED AND
KNOWN BY THE NAMES AND STYLE OF WILLIAM AND MARY, PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF ORANGE, BEING
PRESENT IN THEIR PROPER PERSONS, A CERTAIN DECLARATION IN WRITING, MADE BY THE SAID LORDS
AND COMMONS, IN THE WORDS FOLLOWING:
Whereas the late King James the Second, by the assistance of divers evil counselors,
judges, and ministers employed by him, did endeavour to subvert and extirpate the
protestant religion, and the laws and liberties of this kingdom.
By assuming and exercising a power of dispensing with and suspending of laws, and the
execution of laws, without consent of parliament.
By committing and prosecuting divers worthy prelates, for humbly petitioning to be
excused concurring to the said assumed power.
By issuing and causing to be executed a commission under the great seal for erecting a
court called, The court of commissioners for ecclesiastical causes.
By levying money for and to the use of the crown, by pretence of prerogative, for other
time, and in other manner, than the same was granted by parliament.
By raising and keeping a standing army within this kingdom in time of peace, without
consent of parliament, and quartering soldiers contrary to law.
By causing several good subjects, being protestants, to be disarmed, at the same time when
papists were both armed and employed, contrary to law.
By violating the freedom of election of members to serve in parliament.
By prosecutions in the court of King's bench, for matters and causes cognizable only in
parliament; and by divers other arbitrary and illegal courses.
And whereas of late years, partial, corrupt, and unqualified persons have been returned
and served on juries in trials and particularly divers jurors in trials for high treason,
which were not freeholders.
And excessive bail hath been required of persons committed in criminal cases, to elude
the benefit of the laws made for the liberty of the subject.
And excessive fines have been imposed; and illegal and cruel punishments
And several grants and promises made of fines and forfeitures, before any conviction or
judgment against the persons, upon whom the same were to be levied.
All of which are utterly and directly contrary to the known laws and statutes, and
freedom of this realm.
Time for another revolution?
Those abuses of human rights and freedoms outlined in the preamble to the English Bill
of Rights (1689) led to a revolution that deposed of the King of England and resulted in
the creation of modern democracy not only in England but, ultimately, in many other
nations. As is explained in the introduction at the Web page showing the English
Bill of Rights, the revolution culminated in an end to" the devine right of
kings." It was about time to do it then, and, now that democracy appears to be
coming to an end after is brief existence of 300 years, it is time to do it again, by any
means that are so far legally permissible.
The meaning of the word legislator is "lawgiver or maker of
laws." In Canada the power to create or change laws has through the
machinations of our Liberal prime ministers been taken from the people and their
representatives and given into the hands of our prime minister's judges.
Let there be no mistake, those judges are his. They are appointed by him for
life. They are being appointed through a secretive process that is entirely under
the rule and power of our prime minister, exempt from the scrutiny by anyone in
That makes our supreme court justices the equivalent of King James II. They are
nine kings in red robes that now rule our country, but they are the vassals of our prime
minister, and they'll continue to capriciously shape and twist our laws until nothing
remains of the rights and freedoms that we once had and of the moral standards that just a
few decades ago still made us proud Canadians.
A total of close to 2000 federal judges operate in Canada. They are judges with an agenda, a feminist agenda, an
agenda that is family- and father-hostile.
We still have the right to vote, although the parties in power give themselves
increasingly more power to make it more and more difficult for any opposition to their
rule to make its votes count. They do it by hook and by crook. There are currently
FIVE criminal investigations in the electoral riding of our Liberal prime minister,
investigations into abuses, fraud and and wrong-doings by the prime minister and his
party. We don't have to wait for the outcomes of those investigations, we can end
the rule of the corrupt Liberal totalitarian regime right now. Who knows, at the
rate things are going, after another Liberal term, it may not be possible anymore to do
that by voting.
Creating an Ontario that is much like the England that was
dismantled in 1688
The English Bill of Rights included specific provisions to prevent the abuses listed
above from occurring. The abuses present in Ontario Bill 117 will create exactly the
types of abuses of the laws of our country that led to the revolution of 1688 in
England. Have no illusions, if Ontario Bill 117 becomes law, given the Liberal's
federal regime, it will have repercussions throughout all of Canada, just as happened with
other family-hostile legislation that originated in
The "inalienable" rights established in the English Bill of Rights that were
the blueprint for all constitutions in the free, democratic world will be officially dead
when Bill 117 becomes law. They lived for just about exactly 300 years a very
short time in the history of civilization, but just about all the time given for democracy
Do we need another revolution to bring democracy back into existence, or is there
anything left to negotiate democratically? There is right now. Exercise your
power to vote while you still can. It is quite possible that if the Liberals get
into power for another term that you'll have to die fighting for your rights.
How much more are you willing to take?

Men 'one phone
call' from total destruction'
Accused abusers would lose freedom, property under Bill 117
The Ottawa Citizen
TORONTO - Ontario's domestic violence war is about to enter its nuclear age with the
creation of a legal weapon so destructive no sane man will risk abusive behaviour -- or
marriage, or even dating. ...

One phone call away from ruin
Bill 117 means that in Ontario women
can trash men's lives with ease
by Eli Schuster
OBSERVERS of Ontario politics remember the 1995
provincial election campaign, when Liberal leader Lyn McLeod's views on domestic violence
were interpreted as "shout at your spouse, lose your house." Ms. McLeod insisted
she had not intended that her position be interpreted as an attack on men, but when the
smoke cleared, her party had blown a 30-point lead in the polls and Conservative leader
Mike Harris was premier. Now, say critics of Ontario's proposed Bill 117, the Tory
government's Domestic Violence Protection Act, Ms. McLeod may wind up with the last laugh.
