Lessons (not) learned: Biden envisions a joint future with Canada

Published in Blog on March 27, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

During a visit to Canada on Friday, President Biden admitted that America is set on becoming closer with Canada, despite the many examples of power abuse displayed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

While Americans have watched Canada shift from a free nation to a country burdened by government overreach more expansive than in the U.S., the unification will be anything but beneficial to freedom-loving Americans.

"The United States chooses to link our future with Canada’s because we know that we will find no better partner, no more reliable ally, no more steady friend," Biden wrote to Twitter

Trudeau has enabled the Canadian government to clamp down on its citizens repeatedly in various circumstances:

Just one year ago, thousands swarmed the capitol in Ottawa to protest the government’s economy-crippling COVID mask and vaccine mandates. The trucker convoy began in Canada's Western Provinces and worked its way across the continent. Trudeau utilized emergency police powers to shut down the opposition by freezing private citizens' bank accounts and implementing "no-go" zones. 

The government also used citizens’ cell phones to track and monitor their activity during the pandemic. It secretly compiled “a detailed snapshot of people’s behaviour, including visits to the grocery store, gatherings with family and friends, time spent at home and trips to other towns and provinces.”

The Canadian government mandated travelers use the ArriveCAN app “to provide mandatory travel and public health information before and after… entry into Canada.” The information, which goes straight to the Canadian government, includes “contact information, travel plans, and proof of vaccination.”

When it comes to firearms, the prime minister officially imposed a handgun freeze in October 2022, effectively ending Canada’s handgun market. The sweeping gun control legislation outlawed the purchase, sale, or transfer of handguns in Canada and blocks citizens from bringing new guns from outside the country. 

With all these extreme examples of overreach, Biden has determined that America will "link our future with Canada’s."

"The same fundamental aspirations reverberate across both the United States and Canada. To live in freedom – with dignity," Biden remarked. Yet these brief examples paint a different picture of Canadians' independence and the country's fundamental aspirations.

"Canada and the United States can do big things – because we do them together."

While Biden didn't learn any lessons from our neighbors up north, the American people did. 

The Convention of States grassroots movement aims to rein in the U.S. federal government to stop our nation from growing closer to the tyranny experienced in Canada.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
