The Canadian government’s Emergency Measures Regulations: SOR/2022-21 order bans people from taking part “in a public assembly that may reasonably be expected to lead to a breach of the peace.”
However, the law does not apply to “any person in a class of persons whose presence in Canada, as determined by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration or the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, is in the national interest.”
This includes Indians, refugees, immigrants, asylum seekers and ‘protected temporary residents’.
The exemptions have left some people asking if the prohibition order only applies to white people.
“Why are members of First Nations, refugees and temporary residents exempted from the prohibition to ‘participate in a public assembly that may reasonably be expected to lead to a breach of the peace’ as part of the Emergencies Act regulations?” People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier tweeted.
It appears as though the Canadian government views native Canadians as second class citizens who should have fewer rights than foreigners.
How can such brazen discrimination based on skin color and nationality be in any way legal?
