Trudeau season's greetings

Heritage Canada, that federal government department that increasingly has little to do with heritage but everything to do with censorship and woke politics, is at it again. This time, they have changed the name of an annual Yuletide program called “Christmas Lights Across Canada” to — you guessed it — “Winter Lights Across Canada.” 

“The Christmas Lights Across Canada program, now called Winter Lights Across Canada, brings together Canadians in their communities so everyone can participate and join in the spirit of the season,” reads a disclosure statement from Canadian Heritage.

elections and politics are not going to save us now


I believe that we are rapidly approaching our last chance to vote, boot, these liberal cultist scum out of office. We will be worse than China in a vet short time and yes they will build camps for people with a low credit score.


it is almost reverse discrimination. We celebrate the important days of other faiths as mentioned in the article. in fact many Christians celebrate with them. But Christians are left out of the celebration of their faith's holiday - again many other faiths gather together at Christans and celebrate our important days as we do theirs. such a shame


Regarding "a good life here on earth", when our country returns to its Judeo-Christian foundations, putting God first and loving our neighbour, then our best practices will lead to peace and prosperity. Let's lead the way. Merry Christmas.


Oh how i wish the truckers convoy would have stayed put and put that vile criminal liberal cabinet out to pasture.


I concur with your definition of Christmas. That it is God's plan for our Salvation by sending Jesus Christ to save us. However that plan is not to guarantee a "good life ". Jesus said that in this world you will have tribulations, but do not fear, for I have overcome the world "

Merry Christmas to everyone!!


Make a point of wishing everyone a Merry Christmas this year!


I recently read a statistic that 1 in 4 people in Canada are immigrants now. It’s not up to us to change our ways and values to suit anyone coming to this country. It’s up to those people to accept our ways, or stay where you are! You’re not welcome if you want to bring your problems here. Leave your past life and come here expecting to adopt Canada and Canadian values. For the woke cancel culture here, those people need a good swift kick in the you know what! People are starting to wake up to the “woke”, and it’s about time, but we need everyone to stand up and speak up! Quit being scared little people, write your MP’s and voice your opinion, or the sheeple will continue to be the problem in this country!

Trudeau is a satanic terrorist

Trudeau cannot be described as a Smorgasbord Catholic. He is not Catholic at all. He may have been baptized out of Pierre's tradition and while it looked good as a political formality to do so but unlike others who have lapsed and unknowledgeable of the faith he is not just unknowledgeable but hostile and seeks to attack and marginalize at every opportunity. Associating him with Catholicism is not much different then those who say that Adolf Hitler is part Jewish.

I do appreciate it the article. It shows the open hostility and hatred by the Liberal/NDP towards Christians. From my experience it is only these radicals that have this hostility. I have colleagues who are new Canadians with a non-Christian religion and they have no problem with Christmas and celebrate it themselves.
