    The title is quite misleading (as is often the case with news media these days).

    First of all Canada did not "just order" 293 million covid vaccines.
    Some of these orders were placed in 2020 and some started to arrive in late Dec. 2020.

    Second of all naturalnews.com's 293 million tally (which consists of Moderna + Pfizer vaccines) includes options to purchase. These options make up more than half of the 293 million total !!!

    Having said that, these vax orders are unconscionable and fall into the bottomless pit
    of "Covid-19 procurements".

    The plandemic has many tentacles, players and motives.
    Early on governments saw that they could reap windfalls from it.
    Who pays for these vax purchases ultimately?
    How many $millions end up lining the pockets of the government players?

    The concept that the government has allocated enough of our tax money to buy 409 million doses for "everyone in Canada" (as the government website states) is what concerns me ... like Justin Trudeau has a crystal ball and knows that a vaccine, that was initially supposed to be a single dose, will need over ten COVID injections? Or was it the plan all along to ensure 10 injections per person? What sort of thinking and "guessing" the future/planning is going on here?

    Right and talking about crystal balls.
    Remember Trudeau in April 2020, what he said about a vaccine ?

    Canada unlikely to return to normal until there is a COVID-19 vaccine Apr 9, 2020 2:53 PM EDT

    TORONTO (AP) — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday Canadians will need to stay at home and practice physical distancing for months as the first wave of COVID-19 cases in the country won’t end until the summer and Canada won’t return to normal until there is a vaccine — which could take a year and a half.

    “This is the new normal, until a vaccine is developed,” Trudeau said.

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/health/...vid-19-vaccine

    How the hell did he know that???

    Right from the get go he was in on it, taking all talking points from the CDC and WHO.
    With the timeline for a typical vaccine rollout taking 5-10 years, how the hell did he know there would be a vaccine in 1-1.5 years?
    And how could he say at that point in time that things wouldn't get back to normal until there was a vaccine?

    I was going to put this in the Australian thread but decided to put here as this is already taking place in Australia which seems to be testing ground for a lot of "new" outrageous legislation. Canada could be one of the 5 countries where this will soon be a reality as well.
    'The litmus year of the Five Eyes countries. Canada is included....The Australian government has been moving towards a surveillance state for some years already. Now they are putting the nail in the coffin with an unprecedented surveillance bill that allows the police to hack your device, collect or delete your data, and take over your social media accounts; without sufficient safeguards to prevent abuse of these new powers.
    This month the Australian government has passed a sweeping surveillance bill, worse than any similar legislation in any other five eye country.
    The Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) Bill 2020 gives the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) three new powers for dealing with online crime:
    Data disruption warrant: gives the police the ability to "disrupt data" by modifying, copying, adding, or deleting it.
    Network activity warrant: allows the police to collect intelligence from devices or networks that are used, or likely to be used, by those subject to the warrant
    Account takeover warrant: allows the police to take control of an online account (e.g. social media) for the purposes of gathering information for an investigation.
    The two Australian law enforcement bodies AFP and ACIC will soon have the power to modify, add, copy, or delete your data should you become a suspect in the investigation of a serious crime.
    What makes this legislation even worse is that there is no judicial oversight. A data disruption or network activity warrant could be issued by a member of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, a judge's warrant is not needed.
    Australian companies obliged to comply
    When presented with such warrant from the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, Australian companies, system administrators etc. must comply, and actively help the police to modify, add, copy, or delete the data of a person under investigation. Refusing to comply could have one end up in jail for up to ten years, according to the new bill.
    Required hacking activities could include: altering, copying and deleting data; intercepting and modifying communications; surveilling networks; and changing account credentials.
    Justification of the bill
    Politicians justify the need for the bill by stating that it is intended to fight child exploitation (CSAM) and terrorism. However, the bill itself enables law enforcement to investigate any "serious Commonwealth offence" or "serious State offence that has a federal aspect".
    In fact, this wording enables the police to investigate any offence which is punishable by imprisonment of at least three years, including terrorism, sharing child abuse material, violence, acts of piracy, bankruptcy and company violations, and tax evasion.
    Criticism of the surveillance bill
    The Australian surveillance bill was heavily criticized by Senator Lidia Thorpe, the Greens spokesperson for Justice:
    "The Richardson review concluded that this bill enables the AFP and ACIC to be ‘judge, jury and executioner.’ That’s not how we deliver justice in this country. The bill does not identify or explain why these powers are necessary and our allies in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand do not grant law enforcement these rights."
    "In effect, this Bill would allow spy agencies to modify, copy, or delete your data with a data disruption warrant; collect intelligence on your online activities with a network activity warrant; also they can take over your social media and other online accounts and profiles with an account takeover warrant."
    End of Human Rights
    The new Australian surveillance bill signals the end of respect for Human Rights in Australia.
    For lawyer Angus Murray, Chair of Electronic Frontiers Australia’s Policy Team, the hacking powers pose a serious risk to our civil liberties.
    "This is now a regime in Australia where we have conferred power on law enforcement agencies to hack Australians’, and potentially overseas persons’, computers and to take over accounts and modify and delete data on those accounts," he told Information Age.
    "Australia doesn’t have constitutionally enshrined rights to political speech and other human rights, but if we’re going to give law enforcement these powers, that should be checked and balanced against a human rights instrument at Federal level."
    Murray warns that there could come a point where this power is used against society. In theory, at least, the police could put something like child exploitation images onto your computer. While something like this is not the intention of the bill, there are also no significant safeguards against it.
    Surveillance is power
    Having the ability to secretly hack into people’s computers, take over their social media channels, and spy on them fundamentally undermines our right to privacy.
    Surveillance is power, and that is a threat to our free and open societies.
    In Germany, we know from recent history how devastating a surveillance state is.
    Together we must fight for privacy!

    I'm noticing that bogus "charts" are circulating showing the Liberals with a very strong lead and I read someone in Ontario commenting that "they" are already moving the military into Ontario (spots) supposedly in preparation for a big fallout after the (rigged) election? I've also heard that the PPC party is being banned from attending the election debates - I don't get how they can ban an election candidate from participating in the debates but then that's our new "reality". I've seen "charts" showing Bernier with 4% of votes (think they may have forgotten the 6 after that 4). I'm not sure what's what here but I'm not surprised at how this is all playing out.

    I guess we have to wake up to the fact that 'news' is just the mouthpiece for official propaganda and that elections are rigged just as easily as opinions are censored on social media sites.

    Did you notice that the Liberal emblem now includes not only the red 'L' but also an over-arching blue 'C'? The 'Liberal' party is now openly admitting they're the 'uni-party'. I guess that's why, O'Toole is it?..., has no platform to speak of that differentiates the Conservatives from the ruling Liberals. I think they've made some sort of secret deal.

    When you own the MSM you can make them say whatever you want.
    Tell them that the Liberals have a commanding lead and they will get the message out for you, dutifully.

    Do you know how many millions of dollars have been siphoned off in the name of the pandemic the past 1.5 years in Canada?
    I discovered this a number of months ago when I learned of Canada's National Security Exception that allows the government to hide any Covid contract from the public (who it is going to and the amount).

    You award a contract to company 'x' for $40 million, without any competition, and you keep $2-3 million for you and your cronies.

    Well, looks like that was an easy prediction it will be a rigged election.

    'Record-High Use of Mail-In Ballots Could Mean No Clear Winner on Election Night: Elections Canada Official
    By James Risdon September 10, 2021 Updated: September 10, 2021 biggersmaller Print
    Record-high numbers of mail-in ballots in this federal election may well leave Canadians wondering who won when they go to bed, hours after the polls have closed on Sept. 20, if there are a lot of tight races.

    “In places where the races are tight, we may not know who won on election night,” Elections Canada spokesperson Natasha Gauthier told The Epoch Times. “We may not have an outcome.”

    With only 10 days to go before the election, polls show the Conservatives and Liberals in what is essentially a dead heat.

    Tight election races at the riding level could leave mail-in ballots upsetting the anticipated results at the last minute. Mail-in ballots might only be counted by Sept. 25, five days after the election, says Gauthier.

    “Depending on the volume of those special ballots, it could take two to five days to count them … and get all the results,” she says.

    Before they can even be counted, mail-in ballots have to be verified by Elections Canada staffers to ensure there is no election fraud. Then, all the mail-in ballots have to be counted by hand. There are no machines to tally them up.

    “In the last federal election, 50,000 voted by mail-in ballot and that includes 35,000 Canadians who live abroad,” said Gauthier.

    This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has made a lot of Canadians much more wary of voting in person. Requests for mail-in ballots are skyrocketing.

    On Sept. 10, the federal agency that administers elections reported that 795,606 Canadians had already requested to vote by mail-in ballot, including 674,663 who live in the riding in which they are going to vote.

    That’s almost 16 times as many mail-in ballots as in the last federal election in Canada—and voters still have until Sept. 14 to request the voting kits to cast their ballots through the mail.

    Gauthier says the agency is ready to handle that volume.

    During the third wave of COVID-19, Elections Canada started gearing up for what it then believed could be as many as five million votes coming through the mail. Since then, COVID-19 daily case counts have fallen and vaccination rates have risen, and so the agency has revised its expectations.

    “It could be two to three million votes by mail,” says Gauthier. “Every election, there’s always an uptick (in the number of mail-in ballots requested) on the last day.”

    While it’s impossible to predict with certainty how many people will cast their ballots on election day, Elections Canada’s figures show about 19 million Canadians voted in the last federal election in 2019.

    A similar voter turnout with two million mail-in ballots in this election would mean that more than 10 percent of the vote in this upcoming election would only be counted the days after the polls have closed.

    That’s more than enough of a margin to make all the difference between winning and losing in swing ridings.

    Although counting the mail-in ballots could take up to five days, every one of those ballots has to be received by Elections Canada before the polls close on Sept. 20.

    Voters who get their mail-in ballot ahead of election day but too late to send them back in time can take their ballot to the local returning office or their polling station—or have it delivered there—before the polls close, said Gauthier.

    Anyone who requests a mail-in ballot and does not get it in time can also simply show up at the polling station and vote in person after taking an oath stating they never received the ballot.

    Let me make the prediction: Trudeau, although a close race at the close of the polls, will win a majority the following morning. Of course he will. The elections are rigged. There is no democracy, probably never was.

    There cannot be free and fair elections without a free and fair press - and that we most certainly do not have.

    The mail in ballots will mean no clear winner on election night...what a surprise.

    It is the exact same script as the US election.

    The polls show conservative and liberals in a dead heat?

    There are other parties...it seems they copied the script from the US elections without even editing it for Canada.

    Nobody wants Trudeau and the liberals in power. Nobody. Trudeau has been chased out of every neighborhood where he tried to be seen in the public.

    Not surprising that CTV scrapped these results shortly after airing. It is surprising that JT got as much as 6%
