Gifts of the Nation of Canada

Pastor Charlie Carlick
Prince Rupert, BC

When I was in the Yukon doing some evangelistic work in the year 2000, I was suddenly awakened about 4:30 or 5:00 in the morning by a voice that was speaking into my spirit; and it proceeded as such:

He said son, “What does the Yukon mean to you”? And as if I knew the answer I replied, “Gold. The Yukon is known for its gold.” And He said “Yes, and what does gold mean to you?” I replied, “Purity.” And He said,” That’s right!”

And then He said, “Go on. What is the next province?” I said, “BC.“ And he said, “What does BC mean to you?” I said, “BC, as far as I know, is known for its huge timber.” And He said, “Yes. Go to the mountain and get timber to build my temple.”

And then he went on to say, “What’s next?” I said, “Alberta.” And I heard Him say. “Yes, go on, what is Alberta known for?” I said, ”Alberta is known for its oil!” And his response was, “That is correct. And what does oil mean to you?” I said, “It means the anointing of God.”

By now I was getting a picture in my mind’s eye of what He was feeding into my spirit.

He was saying, “Through the purity of God is built the temple of God and through the purity of the temple of God flows the anointing of God.”

Then he continued on by asking, “What is the next province?” And I said “Saskatchewan.” Then He asked me. “What does Saskatchewan, bring to your mind?” And I said, “The image that comes to mind is wheat.” And his response was, “That’s right, and what does wheat refer to?” And I replied, “Wheat refers to the bread basket of Canada and also the anointed word of God.”

So we went on to the next province, Manitoba, and he said, “What comes to your mind about Manitoba?” And I responded to his question, “I see in my mind an image of a buffalo on a flag.” “And what does the buffalo mean to you?” He asked. And I replied, “ It signifies the power of God and growth through the word of God.”

Then we proceeded on to the province where Canada is governed from, Ontario. And He said “What does Ontario mean to you?” And my spirit spoke and said, “It stands for the government of Canada, governed by the pure word of God. “That is correct”, He said.

Then we moved from the governing province on to Quebec and He questioned me again. “What does this province mean to you?” And the words rang out of my spirit that the French people are known for “love” and love speaks of God’s love for the lost through the word of God.

Then he asked, “What are the last three provinces?” And in return I said. “They are the Maritime provinces.” “And what do they mean to you?” He asked. I said what comes into my spirit is this: “They represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit at the Eastern gate.” (The gospel first came from the East to the West).

There was then a brief moment of silence and He said. “There is more.” Then it came into my spirit, and I replied, “Yes there is the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. He said. “Yes, and what does the Northwest Territories mean to you, and what significance does it have in relationship to God?” And again it came into my spirit first of all: “Didn’t they just find diamonds in the Northwest Territories?” And I said. “Yes, and it is now well known for its diamonds and the diamonds in the spirit refers to the sovereignty of God and all His glory.”

Last of all was Nunavat, the newest territory of Canada and all that could come to my mind was ice as in a desert place. And then I heard in my spirit, “What is ice made from?” And I said “Water?” He said, “That’s right! And what is happening up there now?” I said, “As far as I know the ice is melting.” And again He said, “That’s right, and what does water refer to in the word of God?” And my spirit said, “The flowing of the Holy Ghost through the word of God for Canada.”

Therefore He summed it up as such:

The Word of God over Canada.

  • Through the purity of God comes the temple of God.

  • Through the temple of God flows the anointing of God.

  • Through the anointing of God comes the Word of God.

  • Through the word of God comes the power of God.

  • Through the power of God comes the love of God through the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit through the Eastern gate.

  • And finally, the sovereignty of God hovering over Canada through the Holy Ghost.

Canada! “Be ye holy as I am holy.”

All this transpired in a very short time in the dim light of the morning. He spoke to me in a language that I could understand and I write it in the same manner---very simple!

I received this message in the year 2000 and the message rings clear as the day that it was birthed into my spirit on that cold dim morning in the Yukon Territory in the land of the midnight sun.

Friends of the Family Farm Meet in the Old Church in Smithers

A group of concerned citizens calling itself Friends of the Family Farm met at the Old Church in Smithers, BC on Saturday, October 27 to discuss the future of the family farm in the wake of provincial legislation aimed at eliminating "Farm Gate" sales and uninspected abbatoir (slaughtering) operations.

The group, composed of market gardeners, livestock producers, human rights advocates, abbatoir operators, consumers and advocates of personal freedom are concerned that such a restrictive approach to commerce between neighbours will limit their ability to purchase food for their families from trusted local sources. Additional concerns focused on exorbitant costs and liabilities with farmers being forced to invest unrealistic amounts of money into equipment, transportation and staffing. These costs are seen as prohibitive to new producers and discouraging to those currently in the business. The group sees a reduction in local production as inevitable unless the current legislation is modified.

A cheerful and cooperative atmosphere accompanied the meeting and as it was noted, the participants came from a diversity of philosophical backgrounds and experience. The shared concerns highlighted the broad-based ideals of personal freedom, enterpreneurial indepedence and the health and well-being of the family .

After covering the issue from a variety of angles, the group agreed to pursue a cohesive thrust by helping to form a network with other organizations with similar objectives and concerns which have sprung up around the province. The group plans to encourage the provincial government to include limits of scale in the legislation, ensuring public safety in the large-scale operations which provide food for most BC urban dwellers while incorporating the freedom of consumers to purchase locally-grown meat and produce from trusted sources. The farm-gate sale of produce has not been legislated but attendees agreed that if meat regulations were allowed to stand, the regulation and mandatory inspection of green leafy vegetables would not be far behind.

Members of the public who wish to support this initiative to preserve consumer choice and protect the small-scale family farm are encouraged to contact Rod Taylor (847-3990) in Smithers. Letters to your MLA are also in order. A website will soon be established and educational materials will be made available. It is expected that once the public understands the implications of this legislation, widespread opposition will be evident in both urban and rural areas because of the loss of consumer choice.

Unicef Claims Afghan Children More at Risk

by Rod Taylor
As reported by the CBC, Unicef spokesmen are raising the alarm over the dangers faced by Afghan children by bombing, suicide attacks and starvation. Strangely, for all their apparent concern for the safety of children, Unicef supports and promotes around the world the deliberate killing of children by abortion.

This schizophrenic approach to the issues of life and death has well-meaning schoolchildren in the US and Canada trick-or-treating for Unicef to help starving children, while the organization embraces brutal population control measures and promotes the taking of innocent human life.

Readers are encouraged to seek out other humanitarian organizations to support---ones which don't condone the killing of innocent children.

CHP Press Release: Sitting MPs Cling to Status Quo

October 20, 2007
The second-largest of 12 federal political parties that have yet to elect an MP has accused the four parties already in Parliament of manipulating the Elections Act rules to keep newcomers out.

Ron Gray, leader of the Christian Heritage Party, told Broadcast Arbitrator Peter S. Grant that allocating broadcast time according to past election results violates principles in a Supreme Court decision.

That decision, in a successful suit by the Communist Party of Canada against the 50-candidate rule in the Elections Act four years ago, rested on an interpretation of Section 3 of the Charter of Rights and
Freedoms, which protects political rights of citizens.
Two statements in the ruling, written by Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin, emphasize voters’ rights to be reasonably informed, and candidates’ rights to a reasonable opportunity to present their platforms.

"It has become apparent," Gray said, "that the parties now in Parliament intend to continue to abuse the law-making authority given to them by the people of Canada, in order to retain power and privilege for

The CHP and five other smaller parties noted that changes to election financing rules have made it much more difficult for parties outside Parliament to raise funds—and at the same time give the four parties now
in Parliament $30 million a year of taxpayers’ money to fund their re-election campaigns.

Recently an Ontario court rejected the 2% and 5% threshold rules for access to public funding injected into the Elections Act by the former Liberal government’s Bill C-24; but the Conservative government has
appealed that decision. Gray said that appeal reveals "a continuation of the ‘fortress mentality’ of the four parties already in the House."

The CHP has, for a decade, proposed an alternative mode of public funding that would place the disposition of public funds in the hands of the electorate. This plan was presented to Parliament by the former
Chief Elections Officer, but was rejected by the Standing Committee on Elections and Procedures.

"Similar distortions of fairness have also plagued access to broadcast advertising," said Gray. "However, the Elections Act gives a degree of flexibility to the Broadcast Arbitrator, and that flexibility has, in
the recent past, been exercised with a view to leveling, to the limited extent the Act allows, the playing field.

"But much more is required."

The CHP, supported by all but one of the other extra-parliamentary parties at the meeting, asked the Broadcast Arbitrator "to appeal past partisan interests to the better natures of Canada’s MPs, asking them to
place the public good above partisan advantage."

The broadcast provisions of the Elections Act and its election financing provisions must be amended, they said, giving priority to the voters’ right to information priority, rather than advantage for the parties in
the House.

"The primary objective of all the regulations that bear upon financing and media access must be this," Gray said:"Voters have an absolute right to have full access to adequate information about all the electoral options available to them."

Gore's Oscar Challenged

as reported in the World Net Daily

Pressure is mounting to have Al Gore's Oscar taken back after a British High Court ruling found 11 serious inaccuracies in the movie "An Inconvenient Truth. "

British High Court judge Michael Burton ruled Wednesday Gore's documentary should be shown in British schools only with guidance notes to prevent political indoctrination. The decision followed a lawsuit by a father, Stewart Dimmock, who claimed the film contained "serious scientific inaccuracies, political propaganda and sentimental mush."

Muriel Newman, director of the New Zealand Centre for Political Research, had this to say about Gore's Oscar: "The truth, as inconvenient as it is to Al Gore, is that his so-called documentary contained critical distortions that are quite contrary to the principles of good documentary journalism. Good documentaries should be factually correct. Clearly this documentary is not."

The British judge ruled that when public school teachers show this highly political and highly controversial film to schoolchildren they must make it clear that the film is a political work and promotes only one side of the argument. They also must point out these eleven inaccuracies contained in the film.

The inaccuracies, according to the court, are:

  1. The film claims that melting snows on Mount Kilimanjaro evidence global warming. The Government's expert was forced to concede that this is not correct.
  2. The film suggests that evidence from ice cores proves that rising CO2 causes temperature increases over 650,000 years. The court found that the film was misleading: Over that period the rises in CO2 lagged behind the temperature rises by 800-2000 years.
  3. The film uses emotive images of Hurricane Katrina and suggests that this has been caused by global warming. The Government's expert had to accept that it was "not possible" to attribute one-off events to global warming.
  4. The film shows the drying up of Lake Chad and claims that this was caused by global warming. The Government's expert had to accept that this was not the case.
  5. The film claims that a study showed that polar bears had drowned due to disappearing arctic ice. It turned out that Mr. Gore had misread the study: In fact four polar bears drowned, and this was because of a particularly violent storm.
  6. The film threatens that global warming could stop the Gulf Stream, throwing Europe into an ice age: The Claimant's evidence was that this was a scientific impossibility.
  7. The film blames global warming for species losses including coral reef bleaching. The Government could not find any evidence to support this claim.
  8. The film suggests that the Greenland ice covering could melt, causing sea levels to rise dangerously. The evidence is that Greenland will not melt for millennia.
  9. The film suggests that the Antarctic ice covering is melting; the evidence was that it is in fact increasing.
  10. The film suggests that sea levels could rise by seven meters, causing the displacement of millions of people. In fact, the evidence is that sea levels are expected to rise by about 40 centimeters over the next hundred years and that there is no such threat of massive migration.
  11. The film claims that rising sea levels has caused the evacuation of certain Pacific islands to New Zealand. The Government are unable to substantiate this and the Court observed that this appears to be a false claim.

CTV Gives Lopsided Coverage of Election Results

by Rod Taylor
In a blatant snub of candidates running for the Family Coalition Party in the Ontario election, graphics designed to show the percentage of votes garnered by each party showed no colour whatsoever for the FCP candidates, even when they were leading over other candidates. Family-values politicians are used to being misquoted, ignored and maligned but the biased views of the CTV in this case were so blatant as to cause jaws to drop.
Check it out:

Early in the evening, FCP candidate David MacDonald had more than twice as many votes as Jean-Sarge Brisson but got no colour bar.

Before results began to come in, all candidates in Ottawa West-Nepean had a thin line of colour except for FCP candidate John Pacheco, shown in last place.

After he moved out of last place, he still had no colour. Why not? Bias.

FCP Party Leader, Giuseppe Gori had 1.5% of the vote early in the evening but got no colour recognition from CTV.

Big Blue Wave blogger and FTP candidate, Suzanne Fortin, got a number but no colour.

Before the numbers began rolling in, Bill Murphy was denied a colour bar and placed at the bottom of the list. He climbed to 1.9% but got no colour recognition.

The media snubs may not have affected the practical outcome but certainly contribute to a less-than-fair picture of poll results. When will the media begin playing fair? They rank second only to the courts when it comes to spinning reality according to their biases.

Slow Justice is No Justice

by Rod Taylor CHP Candidate for Skeena-Bulkley Valley

“The wheels of Justice turn slowly,” says the adage. But are they turning at all? Or are they turning in the right direction?

Most Canadians recognize that there are holes in our court system, that victims are falling through the cracks and criminals are getting away with murder (literally). But what is at the root of this decay? What factors have led to our being handcuffed to a system that consistently disappoints?

All human beings long for justice, true justice. From schoolyard squabbles to ubiquitous divorce proceedings to high-profile murder cases, the desire to see the good-hearted citizen rewarded and the mean-spirited criminal punished is universal. Of course, there is a great deal of disagreement about who is the virtuous one and who is the guilty party. The ability to sort that out, based on evidence, is the essence of “judging” in any dispute. The ability to adequately judge depends on fair and unbiased assessment of:
  • Historical facts---what happened?
  • Motives---what was intended?
  • Existing law---is the situation under consideration specifically described in the Constitution or legislation?
  • Historical precedent----how does this case compare to similar cases and judgments?

Certain other rules have come to surround the process for the protection of personal rights, especially the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. These would include the following:
  • The right to trial by peers
  • The right to counsel
  • The right to security of the person---things like the requirement for a search warrant to prevent frivolous or malicious incrimination by police officers

Other encumbrances or encrustations have built up over time which have done little for the cause of justice but to have hindered its application. These could be characterized by:
  • Inordinate and inappropriate delays in the hearing of evidence and the rendering of judgment
  • The micro-selection of jurors by the defence so as to guarantee a biased jury
  • The inadmissability of critical evidence, even when it is obvious to all parties that the evidence is pertinent to the case
  • The routine reduction of time served compared to sentence

These factors have combined to create the impression and the reality that in many cases justice has not been the result , even after years have been eaten up and countless dollars expended in its pursuit.

Of all the impediments to true justice, the main culprit (in my opinion) is the glacial pace of proceedings. I was recently reminded of this by my friend’s painful experience at the murder trial of the man accused of killing his brother. The murder took place two years before the trial. All the evidence surrounding the killing was available within the first 24 hours. The only eye-witness of the shooting has since died of natural causes. Her taped call to 911 was disallowed as evidence because she was not able to support it with personal testimony. My question: Why did it take two years to convene a group of citizens to examine the evidence?

The man who pulled the trigger walked from the courtroom with no conviction, no sentence, no restriction. The grief-stricken family of the deceased were dumbfounded, shocked. They experienced waves of an overwhelming feeling of violation by the court system. It is one thing to be assaulted by mindless criminals, to experience the painful awakening to the depths of human cruelty, selfishness and malice. It is an altogether different sort of despair to suddenly realize that the very system meant to hold society accountable and to prevent these types of tragedies is itself complicit in their tragic repetition.

The ancient words of King Solomon ring true. “Because sentences against evil crimes are not carried out promptly, the hearts of the next generation of men become emboldened to commit more such crimes.” Eccles. 8:11

Let’s do something about the costly and unnecessary delays in administering justice in our land! Let’s demand that judges and judicial system bureaucrats stop making excuses for injustice and start to apply the law, equally, fairly and appropriately to reward good behaviour and punish wickedness. The future of our nation and the stability and security of future generations depend on it!
