FREE SPEECH IN CANADA
Derek will always defend the indispensable Canadian right to freedom of expression. Freedom of speech is foundational to our democracy.
As Prime Minister, Derek will repeal Bill C-16 immediately. This bill enshrined “compelled speech” into Canadian law. It also severely infringes on parental rights and on women’s sex-based rights to private spaces.
Derek will also make federal grants to universities conditional upon proof that all recipients respect free speech and free inquiry on campus.
Derek is concerned by online censorship and algorithmic bias by tech giants like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. If elected Prime Minister, Derek will introduce legislation to make it illegal for an online platform to ban a user unless the user has been documented breaking Canadian law.
Derek will also introduce legislation to amend the Canada Elections Act to kill the “gag law” aspect of its third-party advertising regulations. Derek will do this because Canada should never, ever become a country where people fear to publish or speak opinions that run afoul of those that govern them. He believes that political parties should not have a monopoly on political commentary. That is a right that belongs to all of us.
FREE SPEECH IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA
The politically correct intolerance of “cancel culture” is out of control and must be stopped. One victim of the Liberal-lite/Red Tory elites’ version of “cancel culture” is Richard Décarie, who was barred without explanation from this CPC leadership contest, almost certainly because of his outspoken positions. Jim Karahalios has also been disqualified—twice. In the lead-up to the last election, a number of potential CPC nomination candidates were also “canceled” by CPC HQ for similar reasons, either officially or through other tactics. Under Derek’s leadership, the “canceling” of the candidacies of principled conservatives will end. Free speech will be our guiding policy, not political correctness.
RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE
Derek is unapologetically pro-life, and he declared himself as such when he was a candidate in the 2019 election. As a new Member of Parliament, Derek is a member of the Parliamentary pro-life caucus in Ottawa.

RESPECT FOR CONSCIENCE FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS
No doctor, health practitioner, or any health facility shall be compelled to perform or refer for MAID or abortion. Provinces that fail to ensure freedom of conscience for their health care professionals will see equalization payments clawed back until they comply with the federal requirement for conscience rights.
A STRONG CANADA THROUGH A STRONG DEFENSE
Derek will ensure that we meet our NATO commitment of defense funding of 2% of our GDP within 5 years.
A SAFE CANADA—FIGHTING TERRORISM
Derek will reintroduce changes to the Citizenship Act along the lines of Stephen Harper’s Bill C-24 (2014), allowing both the revocation of the citizenship of Canadians who acquired that citizenship under false representation or fraud and the revocation of the Canadian citizenship of dual citizens who have been convicted of terrorist offences.
Derek will classify ANTIFA a terrorist organization due to their history of violence here in Canada and abroad.
