The Canadian Jew Tax

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk


Canada is Not a Democracy


Many Americans believe that Canada is a democracy, i.e. that the rule of the people is ensured and that freedom of speech, religion, the press, assembly, and the right to bear arms are all the same as in the United States. This is definitely not the case. Canada does not have a complete Constitution consisting of written statutes, so that there is no document which may be used to insure that these rights are not violated by the government. Of course, these rights cannot be violated because they do not exist. 

Consider this. While the president of the United States is elected by electors chosen by the citizen-voters, the head of the federal government in Canada, called the Prime Minister, is appointed by a few politicians in the parliament and the Governor General  without the consent of the citizens. Therefore the prime minister owes the citizens nothing and can rule, not govern, but rule, in any arbitrary manner. For example, when recently some truckers protested government policy in Ottawa, the prime minister, Trudeau, seized the truckers’ bank accounts to end the protest.

There are no term limits, so that former Prime Minister Mackenzie King ruled for 21 years.

The unelected Governor-in-Council appoints the judges in Canada without the consent of anyone. The judges have the power to decide life and death, yet the people have no say in who rules over them. Canada presently has 88 senators. Not one was elected by the people. They are paid over $150,000 a year and additionally can make money by all methods available. The Senate can pass, veto, or amend a bill whether the people like it or not. Canadians have no rights whatever. Even the election of parliament is totally controlled by a few corporations without the consent of any citizens.

Members of the Canadian parliament do not care about the will of their constituents because the members are bought and paid for by the corporations. Parliament has no power to influence anything. All power is in the hands of the Prime Minister, so that he alone rules.

Canada is an oligarchy, a word meaning “the rule of the few.”

Anti-Jewish religious discrimination is enshrined in the Canadian education system. Jews must pay school taxes which support the Catholic and the Protestant (now called “public”) school system. Nevertheless, Jewish schools are not supported by these school taxes, so that Jewish Canadians must pay the school tax and, in addition, need to pay tuition to Jewish schools.

The Canadian government can and does overrule court decisions. If the government does not like a decision by a court, the government can and does void court decisions.

Shalom u’vracha.
