— Awake Canada (@davidcheyne) February 18, 2022 Lilly began by saying that Trudeau had a responsibility to hear what Canadians were saying, “even those who you disagree with.”
“Treating them with prejudice, suspicion, and illegal repression is not care,” she continued, adding, “Protesting something that deeply, deeply concerns you in our society is not terrorism. It is the civic duty of every Canadian. It is our job as the people to hold our leadership accountable if they are infringing on our inalienable rights, if we suspect that they have become corrupted or compromised in any way — or simply, if we think they’re wrong in monumental decisions they are making on behalf their people.”
“But you are treating my brothers and sisters, your constituents, like terrorists without ever speaking to their leadership,” Lilly went on to call on Trudeau to listen to the people instead of simply cracking down on them. “There are no riots.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
