Leap Manifesto: Go Leap Off a Cliff

leapman copyOdds are, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, you’ve got a duck.

The parallels of the United Nations Agenda 2030 and this “Leap Manifesto” are two peas of the same pod.

Scientific theories notwithstanding, there are two fundamental forces at work in the world today — the drive toward collectivity and the drive toward individuality.  Agenda 2030 (aka, Agenda 21) and it’s baby brother, the Leap Manifesto are the epitome highlights of societies’ drive towards collectivism.

In order to facilitate a speedy transition from current social policies to one of “sustainable development”, the implicit compliance of the populace becomes mandatory.

The common theme of these social justice doctrines is utter and complete enslavement of the masses by a few elites.  Dressed in colourful euphemisms like “save the world, eradicate poverty, sponsored income equality” lies a very dark truth; we must sacrifice our individual freedoms and civil liberties and own the belief that Humanity is a plague that is destroying the planet.

The very first paragraph defining Leap Manifesto states, “The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has acknowledged shocking details about the violence of Canada’s near past. Deepening poverty and inequality are a scar on the country’s present. And Canada’s record on climate change is a crime against humanity’s future.”

First off, what the hell is a Truth and Reconciliation Commission?  The TRC is a group stemming from the University of Manitoba and is aimed at exposing the Indian Residential School crisis; “The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) was created to preserve the memory of Canada’s Residential School system and legacy. Not just for a few years, but forever.”

How very noble of the TRC.  The last residential school closed in 1996 — 20 years ago.  The TRC was established nine days prior to the launch of a formal apology for the residential schools crisis from the Canadian Government under then Prime Minister Stephen Harper on June 11, 2008.  The Canadian Government recognized this dark chapter in our history; it’s time to move on.  It is also important to note that, “The head of the Assembly of First Nations says it’s important to know that 70 per cent of aboriginal females killed in cases solved by police have died at the hands of other aboriginals“.  But the TRC glosses over that statistic.

Future generations must not be held responsible for the crime(s) of their ancestors.  If today’s children are held responsible for the actions committed by their grandparents society would stagnate and become unable to move forward.

It moves beyond the stated TRC mandate to claim that “Deepening poverty and inequality are a scar on the country’s present”.  Canada is one of the most economically stable and free countries in the world; indeed, Canada is the envy of many nations.

It is also beyond the stated TRC mandate to make the accusation, “And Canada’s record on climate change is a crime against humanity’s future”.  This statement is the epitome of political grandstanding.

Canada contributes 1.58% of the worlds total greenhouse gas emissions which is actually less than 1% of China’s total GHG emissions.  And as Marilyn Taylor has frequently reminded Canadians, “Canada’s total emissions from oil sands is 0.15%.  All emissions over the next 25 years of growth in the oil sands equals less than one day of emissions in China.”

Even if one truly believes that carbon is bad, there is no denying that Canada’s emissions are among the lowest of developed nations.

For this manifesto to have the gall and declare “Canada’s record on climate change is a crime against humanity’s future” requires the highest form of arrogance and sheer ignorance.

The second paragraph in the outline of this Leap Manifesto states, “These facts are all the more jarring because they depart so dramatically from our stated values: respect for Indigenous rights, internationalism, human rights, diversity, and environmental stewardship.”

What planet are these people living on?  Canadians have tremendous respect for indigenous peoples, internationalism, human rights and environmental stewardship.  And Canadians are among the most diverse of populations across this planet.  Taken right out of the progressive playbook, Canada is a multicultural society.

The manifesto blabs on to say, “We could live in a country powered entirely by renewable energy, woven together by accessible public transit, in which the jobs and opportunities of this transition are designed to systematically eliminate racial and gender inequality. Caring for one another and caring for the planet could be the economy’s fastest growing sectors. Many more people could have higher wage jobs with fewer work hours, leaving us ample time to enjoy our loved ones and flourish in our communities.”

Renewable energy is an admirable goal in which to strive, as is the drive toward equality between men and women of Humanity.  This transition to implementation of the Leap Manifesto will not foster, nor guarantee equal status for all persons — quite the opposite, the manifesto is a short affirmation that a few ruling elites will govern all of Humanity.

On green energy, this manifesto is hypocritical.  Take Ontario for example.  In that province, one can build a wind turbine without subjugation to health and environmental studies.  If one would like to build a pipeline, be prepared for a vigorous five to ten year period of environmental impact studies, Human health studies and Aboriginal approvals.

Wind turbines are a hazard to Human health — many living in close proximity experience sleep disorders.  Wind turbines also disrupt the migratory pattern of birds; to say nothing of the endangered California condor flying into a giant bird blender.  Wind turbines don’t spin in the doldrums.  And oil is still required to physically build the turbines, transport all the parts and to erect these machines.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to recognize the hypocrisy of the “green energy movement”.

But that doesn’t seem to phase the creators of this Leap Manifesto.  “We know that the time for this great transition is short. Climate scientists have told us that this is the decade to take decisive action to prevent catastrophic global warming. That means small steps will no longer get us where we need to go.”

Global warming took a hiatus back in ’98.  This is why in the mainstream it’s not referred to as global warming anymore, but simply “climate change”.  Yet these mainstream “eco-nuts” keep telling us that global warming is the biggest threat to our planet and Humans are the cause.  Either the authors of this manifesto are stupid, dumb or incredibly naïve; the jury is still out.

Climate change is a naturally occurring process that our planet has undergone since long before Humanity or the Industrial Revolution.  If it is indeed the Human population that is directly responsible for climate change, how and why was the climate changing before the dawn of civilization?

The authors of this manifesto did not listen to the Eskimo population, they do not hear the words of the residents in the Northwest Territories, Yukon or Nunavut.  They are content to remain naïve — ignoring reports such as the polar bear population is thriving.


Two recent reports warned that global warming threatens polar bear populations across the world, but the warnings in those reports obscure today’s reality about polar bears — they are doing just fine, according to experts.  “They appear to be as abundant and as productive as ever, in most quotation-marks-left3populations,” Dr. Mitchell Taylor, a polar bear expert with more than 30 years of experience who teaches at Lakehead University in Canada stated.

sponsorLEAPBut this comes as no surprise when one considers the fact that the David Suzuki Foundation, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace and Idle No More (among many others) are all sponsors of Leap Manifesto.  Citing the Suzuki mantra of “Humans are destroying the planet”, “climate change deniers should be jailed” and espousing false science, Leap Manifesto plows ahead like it’s gospel.

The creators, the authors of this asinine doctrine are, it would seem, living in a world powered by pixie dust and unicorn farts.  Naomi Klein and her husband Avi Lewis are the two who directly crafted this manifesto.  Avi Lewis is the son of Stephen Lewis, former Ontario NDP leader.

Klein has long been an activist spouting environmental dogma.  And continuing on this path of a fine sense of historical irony, the federal New Democratic Party has decided to use certain elements of Leap Manifesto as their key policy platform.

Rex Murphy shares his thoughts:

Apparently, hypocrisy knows no bounds in this ultra-socialistic document.  “Premier Rachel Notley tried to navigate through political friendly fire Monday — forcefully distancing her NDP government from the controversial Leap Manifesto, while maintaining the Alberta party won’t break away from the federal NDP.”

““These ideas [Leap Manifesto] will never form any part of our policy,” she said. “They are naïve, they are ill-informed and they are tone deaf.””  And kudos to her for taking that stand.

Leftist, progressive elements of our society are quick to capitalize upon a natural process of climate change — Give a socialist an inch and he’ll take a mile; taxing you for the extra distance.  And then charge you again for the conversion to metric.

Social doctrines such as Agenda 2030 and this Leap Manifesto in their pledge for total control of the “best way forward” is reminiscent of the Borg from Star Trek.

13010818_10207884135680019_545893457518491512_n“We are the Borg, prepare to be assimilated. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us.

Resistance is futile.”

Yet our heroes prove time and again that resistance is not futile.

Reject Agenda 2030, reject the Leap Manifesto. Reject this fundamental drive towards collectivism.

Does anyone remember another manifesto?  Does anyone recall a document of social policy outlined by an extreme socialist?  Hint: It’s other name was Mein Kampf — it lead to a war that nearly destroyed the world.

Whatever happened to the belief in personal freedom and accountability?  Why does Humanity seem to ignore the Five Pillars of Conservative ideology?  Because the progressive way is the easy way; the right way is the more difficult path.

A collective is nothing without individuals — intelligent people will never be enslaved by a select few ruling elites.  Uninformed and low-information voters will be quick to sign up in support for this Leap Manifesto.

To continue with the Trek analogy; you are the heroes.  You have to fight back against these extremely radical social doctrines.  The future of our species and rights of the individual depends on you.

And that is Canadian Common Sense

    Bang on! It scares me to death to think Agenda 2030 and/or this mentality could truly be what the world becomes 😮
