According to a new assessment, the condition of democracy in Canada has deteriorated in recent years, knocking it out of the top ten most stable democracies in the world. The report attributes this to the effects of COVID-19 limits on personal freedoms and related public attitude.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), based in London, released its annual Democracy Index study on Feb. 10 that ranked 167 nations in 2021 based on factors such as electoral procedures and civil rights.
Despite the fact that fewer than half of the world’s population lives in a democracy, Canada has dropped out of the top ten most stable democracies for the first time since The Economist began publishing the survey in 2006, falling to 12th place.
“Canada’s citizens believe they have little control over their life,” according to the survey, “a sentiment exacerbated by pandemic-related restrictions on individual freedoms.”
The EIU relied on data from the World Values Survey (WVS), which is compiled by a global network of social scientists under the auspices of the World Values Survey Association, a non-profit organization. The findings suggest that Canada’s scores in the categories of “government functioning” and “political culture” are rapidly declining.
Citizens’ displeasure with government leaders who have proceeded to reinstate pandemic-related restrictions after they were first pushed back in the summer of 2020 are reflected in Canada’s decreasing democracy score, according to the research. Others said they were having trouble getting the federal government’s COVID-19 assistance benefits.
According to the WVS survey, just 10.4% of Canadians believed they had “a great deal” of choice and control, and only 23.5 percent had “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in political parties.
Since Jan. 29, hundreds of Canadians have joined a “Freedom Convoy” movement in Ottawa to protest COVID-19 limitations and vaccine mandates. Parallel protests have erupted at border crossings in Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario in response to the first protest in Canada’s capital.
For the first time in Canadian history, Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act on February 14, giving the federal government broad temporary powers to deal with continuous blockades and protests over pandemic restrictions.
According to the EIU assessment, Canada, like the US, has “very low levels of public trust in political parties and government institutions.” This was reflected in Canadians’ support for non-democratic alternative forms of governance: 13.5 percent preferred military control, while 55 percent thought rule by experts or a technocratic government was a “very good” or “pretty good” notion.
The report’s title is “Democracy Index 2021: the China Challenge,” and it examines how much of a threat China’s political model poses to Western democracies and the rest of the world.
In the Democracy Index, China is categorised as a “authoritarian regime.” The country had a score of 2.21 out of ten, down from 2.97 in 2006.
China had a score of 0.88 in the civil liberties category, making it one of the lowest-ranking countries among the 167 countries surveyed.
“There is no free print, broadcast, or social media,” according to the report, “no freedom of expression, and internet prohibitions.” “There are no free trade unions, no independent judiciary, and no true legal equality.” The state does not tolerate religious differences and regularly employs torture.”
According to the research, CCP leaders frequently compare their authoritarian political model to Western democratic democracy, which they claim “produces poorer leaders, time-wasting deliberations, and a lot of gridlock.”
The Chinese system, they believe, is superior to their Western counterparts because it allows for quick and efficient decision-making as well as long-term planning to maximize economic returns, stability, and security. They claimed that this efficiency is contingent on the removal of any democratic accountability mechanism.
According to the report, China’s authoritarian political system has resulted in a high amount of corruption.
The case of Xu Caihou, a former vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission, was a stunning illustration of flagrant corruption among Chinese authorities in recent years. Caihou was detained in 2014 after officials uncovered more than a metric tonne of cash stored in his house’s 20 square meter basement.
“Isolated from the public, China’s elites are generally self-serving, and power abuse is not unusual,” according to the research.
Given the Chinese political system’s intrinsically unappealing characteristics, the EIU believes that how far the country succeeds in undermining Western democracies in the future decades will be largely determined by the West’s ability to rejuvenate its own democratic model.
It goes without saying that Canada’s democratic model is deteriorating; Yet many still fail to understand what it is that motivates these communist politicians to dismantle individual freedoms in the first place. That can likely be attributed to the fact that many are incapsulated in their own respective bubbles, much like a dumbed down metaverse. The truth is, the technocratic dystopia is already among us. Data drives the world, and your average joe has no idea.
The internet has proved to be a place in which you can tune into various frequencies in search of a perspective that best fits your narrative. I could make up an argument on the fly and back it up with facts pertaining to my argument. With that being said, the news about COVID-19 is terrifyingly polarizing. There is a spectrum, by which all narratives of the COVID-19 agenda are carefully presented to anyone conducting research. The opposing sides of the spectrum are those who are sold on the COVID-19 pandemic, and those who aren’t sold at all.
But it becomes extremely important that we listen to our gut, when we notice that someone is eyeballing something that rightfully belongs to you. Our civil liberties are merely gods gift to man interpreted by men of power. No man, woman, government, organization, forum, or anything will prosper as a weapon against God. With that being said, when our God given rights are at stake, it is probably best to question the integrity of those who propose the removal of such rights. In summary, if you’re not a “conspiracy theorist” you probably aren’t asking very many questions about the world around you. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.Hosea 4:6
Ontario’s health minister announced today that the government will not abandon its vaccine passport system as other jurisdictions have done, and that the mask requirement will be in place “for some time.”
Christine Elliott said at a press conference in Kitchener, Ont., that the government will suspend Directive 2 “in the coming days” and begin a “gradual and cautious” resumption of non-emergent or non-urgent surgeries and procedures.
“We’ve already set out our opening timelines and started on Jan. 31. The next phase is as of Feb. 21, and then March 14. We have no plans currently to drop the passport vaccination situation or masking. We believe that masking is going to be important for some time to come,” Elliott added.
Several provinces have lately stated that their COVID-19 vaccine passport programs and other pandemic restrictions will be phased out.
In Alberta, the necessity for proof of vaccination expired on February 8, and all businesses had their capacity limits relaxed, with the exception of bigger venues with more than 500 people. Starting Feb. 14, the province will also repeal the rule mandating youngsters to wear masks in school.
Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe also stated on February 8 that the province’s vaccine passport mandate will be phased down beginning February 14. By the end of February, the province’s mask requirements will have expired.
Most COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted by March 14, according to the Quebec government, however masking and proof-of-vaccination requirements will remain in effect until further notice.
The Ontario government produced a roadmap last month outlining the steps the province will take to reduce public health measures, however it does not say when masking or the requirement for confirmation of immunization will be lifted.
When asked if Ontario will lessen or eliminate the requirement for vaccine passports before March 14, Elliott said “we are willing to change if necessary” based on the number of hospitalizations and recommendations from the province’s chief medical officer of health.
“We are looking at the evidence on a daily basis as well. The trends are going in a good direction now, but we can’t sit back on our laurels and assume that it’s going to always continue,” Elliott added.
With the relaxation of COVID-19-related travel restrictions, France, Greece, and Portugal have become the latest European countries to do so.
Vaccinated tourists, for example, will not be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter, whereas unvaccinated visitors will. Greece also no longer requires pre-departure testing.
Officials in France said this week that the country will no longer require vaccinated people from outside the European Union to pass a COVID-19 test.
“We again required tests in December over the Omicron variant. In the coming days we will announce that tests are no longer needed for vaccinated people,” Clement Beaune of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs told France 2 TV on Tuesday.
the mainstream media has nothing to say about the questionable things going on in our nation as usual. All the pawns are being put in place to asphyxiate followers of Christ. America lost its morals after this pandemic. Christian teachings are a threat to secularism, centralized governmental power and the valueless entertainment industry; Which funds all the wrong people. Not to mention The World Economic Forum is casting its shadow on America; Budging the democratic party to adhere to a globalist agenda. This is foreshadowing of persecution and tribulation yet to come.
Much of the “loosened restrictions” we’re seeing across Europe are still discriminatory against the unvaccinated citizens. If 62% of the global population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccines, there’s something to be said about these politicians failing to represent the 32% of people across the world. Mainstream media will undoubtedly try to avoid addressing the tyrannical measures imposed on unvaccinated citizens. Many of whom are God fearing individuals that have a fundamental comprehension of their God given rights. 1 Peter 4:12-14 says: “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.” Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
