Bill C-38 protest has 13,000 websites going dark across Canada this June
By Andy Radia

When it comes to politics, Canadians are generally an apathetic bunch. Often, a controversy will brew and within a week or two we forget about it and move on.

It appears Bill C-38 is one issue we're not willing to let go.

Saturday is the one month anniversary of the introduction of the so-called omnibus budget bill, a 425-page bill that amends 60 different acts, repeals a half dozen others and adds three more. Opposition parties have repeatedly said that the bill is too big and includes changes that ought to be broken off and presented as separate legislation. But the Conservatives are forging ahead with it as-is.

While Canadians haven't hit the streets en masse yet, they are showing their dislike for the bill even one month later. On June 4, 13,000 website owners across Canada, including the NDP, PSAC and even Margaret Atwood, will be darkening their websites in protest of Bill C-38 as part of the 'Black Out Speak Out' campaign.

And political analysts also continue to speak-out against the bill.

This week, the National Post's Matt Gurney, who could never be accused of being a left-wing radical, said the bill was "sneaky" and "undemocratic."

Last week, Dennis Drainville, the bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Quebec wrote a scathing piece about the bill and how the Stephen Harper government is minimizing the role of Parliament.

"In the last 12 months I have seen clearly the rise of tyrannical policies and the application of such mind and state control that the people of Canada , unless they soon react, will find themselves not only slaves to a corporate and political domination they never chose but they will experience the extinguishing of any of the hopes and dreams that they once had for a nation firmly based upon the foundations of compassion, justice and peace," he wrote.

"For God's sake, for all of our sakes, wake-up Canada."

And it's not just the pundits who are talking trash about C-38.

Earlier this week, a YouTube video surfaced, showing Conservative MP David Wilks telling constituents that he has some concerns with the omnibus nature of the bill.












Even though Wilks backtracked a day later, it's clear that opposition to Bill C-38 is not going away anytime soon.

But the question remains: will the Conservatives give in to the pressure?

They are missing the big part of the problem and that is the fact that the three levels of government in Canada are borrowing money from privately owned banks who create the money by having the government sign the loan documents and then charge interest. The federal government has the authority to create money through the bank of Canada and is refusing to do so.

The student protests in Quebec seem to be going strong as well.
