SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
O Canada! Our northern neighbor’s voters have succumbed to the sorts of seduction that brought us Barack Obama’s presidency. Last night, Canadians elected Justin Trudeau – a young, untested and superficially attractive leftist, running on a platform offering hope and promising change.
In so doing, they fired Prime Minister Stephen Harper, arguably, the Free World’s most stalwart, and conservative, leader. In the place of a reliably pro-American Canada, guided by a champion for liberty, a strong supporter of Israel and a courageous opponent of Islamic supremacism, Trudeau’s government will be pursuing policies at home and abroad fundamentally at odds with our interests.
All this will suit President Obama, whose campaign operatives were – as usual – dispatched to help elect the leftist candidate. In due course, Canadians will surely come to regret this mistake, but at what cost to them, and to us?
An Al Qaeda terrorist guilty of murdering a U.S. Army sergeant and “transferred” from Guantanamo to Canada by the Obama administration has been released from an Alberta prison while he appeals his conviction for war crimes.
His name is Omar Ahmed Khader and he’s a member of Canada’s “first family of terror,” according to an international news report that confirms Khader’s father was an associate of Osama Bin Laden who moved his family to Pakistan to support the Afghan mujahideen in its war against the Soviet Union. In 2010 Khader was convicted of five war crimes, including throwing a grenade that killed Army Sergeant Christopher Speer in Afghanistan during a 2002 combat operation.

Signing the Arms Trade Treaty would not improve upon how we assess exports of military items. Canada already has some of the strongest export controls in the world.
The ATT actually brings countries up to our export control standards.
It is important that such a treaty should not affect lawful and responsible firearms owners nor discourage the transfer of firearms for recreational uses such as sport shooting and hunting. We’ll make sure that any treaty we sign onto is good for Canada, and good for Canadians.

I don’t know about you, but the senseless death this week of the Canadian soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was shot and killed at Canada’s National War Memorial in Ottawa, left me devastated.

When I look at the photograph of him with his dog, I cry as if he were my own son or brother. I cried even more, when I subsequently found out that he left behind a wife and young daughter.
At first, I was in disbelief, then I became angry, then saddened, then angry again. It’s where I find myself now.
