This past week the Ontario Landowners Association met in Ottawa. Among the speakers were Jack MacLaren, MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills and Gary McHale, author of Victory in the No-Go Zone. The talks were generally about how the federal and provincial government are attempting to override property rights and diminish liberty through environmental regulation. At this event discussing “Agenda 21” does not usually generate eye-roll – the members are predominately rural and have first-hand account of this micromanagement tyranny.
Videos from the event will be available soon. In the meantime, here's a sum-up of Jessica Annis' speech. Jessica is a friend of PFT and founder of Operation Pushback. Her talk was entitled, “Surviving Sustainability: An Ontario Case Study.”
Jess began by defining land-use planning in a historical context – using examples from the industrial revolution to show the original reasons we have land-use planning to begin with. A crucial aspect from history that is missing today is the respect for private property rights. Land-use planning today often neglects this essential ingredient that led to the birth of the middle class.
Jess also described the revolution in land-use planning known as “Sustainable Development.” Her presentation depicts a watermelon to show how these people may be green on the outside (i.e. they claim to support the environment) but are really red (or communist) on the inside. Their goal is to deindustralize the Western economies, destroy working and middle class wealth, confiscate private property and ration food and energy. Through her work in urban planning and industry, Jess has seen the reality of Agenda 21.
Jess lashed against the thought-police that use the word "sprawl" in a negative context and wish to see everyone confined to dense cities. She outlined every single act that is bringing Ontario closer to the goals of Agenda 21. She outlined how Ontario is being deindustrialized, how our property rights are being overridden by some vague “human right” and how technocrats are overruling democratically elected members. She also touched upon the depopulation of rural lands and the elimination of national sovereignty. Jess feels that cap and trade will be the major step in the implementation of the North American Union.
However, not everything was doom-and-gloom. The fact the OLA exists is encouraging. And Jess made a few of us laugh when comparing pictures of St. James Town in Toronto to pictures of the Soviet Union. But the resemblance of high-rise apartments is very disturbing.
Overall Jess showed that Agenda 21 is being implemented through local means but that is also the way we can win. Civil disobedience is key. Also networking with other freedom-inspired individuals is the way to go. There's strength in numbers and while the police can jail resistors, they can't jail the resistance. - See more at: http://pressfortruth.ca/top-stories/ontario-pushes-back-against-agenda-21/#sthash.ldIdCu4l.dpuf
