I have been trying to work in the background to get the various lobbies to support the Equality Party 2.0… After all we are supposed to have the same goals and aims… However, not ONE of these groups will openly work with us or allow us to recruit and promote the Party on their pages or let us access their Friends or Like lists… Their reasoning is that they are “Not political” (sic.) [Non-Partisan] or they are “Apolitical” !!!!
They call themselves “Civil Rights groups” but they say that they are not politically involved… WHAT????
Then we have the ones that think playing in their own sandbox is the only Viable game (Beryl Wajsman)…. And that it is impossible to “engage” our opponents from a Position of strength, and demand the respect we earned!
It is time to go public with this behind the scenes divisiveness…. these groups are not working for you… they are playing 3-Card Monte… Diverting your attention from real political activism and organization with a sop to One-Issue politics…
Bill 14 is a horrendous Bill… But it is NOT the Law!!! It has No effect right now… it is Just a proposal! The people that make the law – Political Parties, NOT Lobby groups - will decide on how they will vote and what they will support or not, based on Electoral political calculations… Not based on a bunch of angry demonstrators or pompous Journalists and Lobby groups full of their own self-importance!
Sure the lobbies are making noise and causing some embarrassment, and the cats will stick their tails between their legs and act all repentant… BUT after the dust dies down and the media spotlight moves off onto the latest sensational story, the tails will come back out and the troops will be unleashed again… Remember PastaGate?? Well the OQLF was out at Cavendish Mall today… Not too cowed by the events of last month are they?
The Real problems that effects Quebec and all of us TODAY is Bill 101, and the Real Enemy is not the Equality Party, or even the PQ (who after all are just being honest about what they want).. No the Real Enemy is the Quebec Liberal Party.. Those double-dealing political charlatans who promise us relief and protection and deliver NOTHING.
Sure, Bill 14 is a disaster waiting to happen… but whether or not it comes into effect is not in our hands.. The best we can do is maybe mitigate some of the most damaging impact.. But in reality, the ONLY people with the power to STOP Bill 14 is Stephen Harper, and the Governor General of Canada using their powers of disallowance!.. So to be most effective lobby in Ottawa… promise Harper that he will win back some seats in Quebec… Then you will see how fast he will wake up and start rattling his chains!
BILL 101 is what has destroyed the Economy of Quebec. It has driven away investment, Limited our global competitive edge, and promoted a genocidal attack on a whole culture with segregationist and racist policies. It has Driven away our young, our best, our brightest… It has created an environment where corruption is considered the norm…. and has been the prime weapon of the New Quebec power grabbers to keep their own population down, uneducated and subservient, taking a page out of the Quebec Catholic Church play book on population control.
In all the years of Quebec Liberal party power, can anyone name even ONE instance where the Liberal government of the day, ever rolled back application of the Law just because it was not right and was destructive to their electorate??? Just ONE instance!!!! And let us not forget that it was the Quebec Liberal Party that brought us Bill 22, the Forbearer of Bill 101.
Nor should we forget, that no matter how much the Liberals today are against Bill 14, they are not against it for moral reasons, but just as a political calculation to oppose the PQ, embarrass the CAQ and win back some of the French anti-Sovereigntist vote. Remember too… that they have NO plans to change Bill 101 in anyway at all, and they were the ones to hire 43 more Language Police only a few months before the last election and during a Hiring freeze for Health Care workers, etc.
So please tell me why all of our so called, Non-political lobby groups are so quick to go running to suck up to the Liberals, or the new Quebec Conservative party, Rather than support the ONLY party that has their best interest at the Center of all its policies! Why do they NOT support the Equality Party 2.0 ????
We can NOT build a party without YOUR support… You the voters… It is Up to YOU to get out the Vote and sign up members… We can NOT do it alone… we can NOT do it all for YOU… This is YOUR home… It is YOUR Family leaving… It is YOUR Business under attack… Your Jobs threatened… The Equality Party 2.0 NEEDS YOU!!!!
We will be having a meeting on May 26th at the Hampton Inn on the TransCanada, just east of Sources Road… (Details are posted on our Facebook page) Do NOT let this Chance to rebuild the party go by without your Participation… Come to the Meeting.. Bring your friends… Bring Your Family… It is YOUR party… And if it is not on the ballot on Election Day, it will be YOUR Fault!
Equality Party 2.0
