Fascist Canadian Justice Francesca Marzari overrules father’s freedoms of thought and speech

The Honourable Madam Justice Francesca V. Marzari
The Honourable Madam Justice Francesca V. Marzari

This story of a transgender child in the left-leaning province of British Columbia shows what the political left would do in America if they were in power. In a previous post, I reported on how the public schools, the government-run health care system, and the government-run courts all conspired to give the child testosterone injections, over the father’s objections.

Here is the latest from The Federalist:

Last week, Justice Francesca Marzari of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada, declared a father guilty of “family violence” against his 14-year-old daughter on the sole basis that he had engaged in “expressions of rejection of [her] gender identity.” These “expressions” revolved entirely around his polite refusal to refer to his daughter as a boy in private, and his steady choice to affirm that she is a girl in public.

[…]Her father, Clark*, strongly objects to this treatment and immediately sought to reverse the decision in the BC Court of Appeal. Hoping to raise awareness of his case, Clark gave a number of interviews to media outlets, including The Federalist. In these interviews, he repeatedly referred to his daughter as a girl, stating to The Federalist that “she is a girl.  Her DNA will not change through all these experiments that they do.”

While many might take this to be an honest statement of biological fact, Marzari quoted it as a prime example of Clark’s “family violence of a public denial of [Maxine’s] gender identity.” Marzari convicted Clark of this violence, and issued a “protection order” preventing him from speaking to journalists or the public about his case.

[…]What Marzari found particularly egregious, however, was not Clark’s private interactions with his daughter but his “continued willingness to provide interviews to the media … in which he identifies [Maxine] as female, uses a female name for [Maxine] … and expresses his opposition to the therapies [Maxine] has chosen.” According to the court, this willingness placed Maxine at “a significant risk of harm.”

[…]Marzari argued that the “people and organizations” to whom Clark granted interviews had shown themselves “fundamentally opposed” to transgender ideology, yet Clark “continued to support the media organizations posting his commentary with additional interviews.” This kind of attitude was, in Marzari’s view, justification for enjoining Clark from sharing any information with journalists—or with practically anyone outside his legal team—about his daughter’s “sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical health, medical status or therapies.”

The court also emphasized that Clark must not allow relevant documents (petitions, affidavits, letters, court orders, etc.) to come into the hands of third parties not “authorized by order of this court,” or with “written consent” from his daughter.

If father refers to his daughter as female again, then he will be arrested!


At about the same time that story was published, the Supreme Court issued an additional, more heavy-handed “protection order” from the same ruling. The three-page document declares that the father, Clark*, will henceforth be subject to arrest, immediately and “without warrant” if any police officer has “reasonable” grounds to believe that he has in any way referred to his daughter as a girl in public or in private.

The new order further stipulated not only that Clark must not discuss his daughter’s sex or gender identity in public, but also that he cannot share court documents describing his own gag order. On the one hand, this demand may seem ironic, since it covers a publicly available court ruling. On the other hand, the injunction is so broad that it naturally includes the very document upon which it is written and that document–with its threats of immediate arrest without warrant–has not, as of yet, been made available on the court’s website.

So you have an anti-science judge, who is paid by the tax dollars of this father, overruling him as the biological father, and imposing her own far-left opinions as law. Why would any moral Christian man marry and start a family in Canada, when immoral far-left atheist leftists can take his money for their salary, and then overrule his basic human rights and parental authority? No free man would live in a country that treats him like a slave. Unfortunately, men are treated like slaves in Canada. The only solution is to get out.

It’s not surprising that the courts would censor him from speaking to the news media. In Canada, the government is run by radical secular leftists, who see any speech critical of the secular left agenda as potential violence. So, for decades in Canada, the government and the courts have issued gag orders on pro-life activists, and they even imprison those who speak out against abortion and same-sex marriage. Nurses and doctors who expose abortion extremism and infanticide are regularly censored b the government and the courts, for example. There is nothing like the first amendment in Canada. On the contrary. The progressives in government have made “offensive speech” a criminal offense.


While the main thrust of Marzari’s ruling focused on Clark’s public statements, Marzari also ordered that Clark be enjoined from “exposing” Maxine to any materials that might “question whether [her] gender identity is real or the treatments [she] seeks are in [her] best interests.”

Well, enough of that. Let’s talk about the legal system in Canada.

Although the university system is funded in part by pro-life and pro-marriage taxpayers through mandatory taxes, the law schools are effectively closed to Christians or conservatives. If any manage to get through law school, then they are barred from practicing law. And of course it’s impossible for anyone right of center to be appointed to a government position on the courts, because of discrimination and bias.

There is no free speech or freedom of thought in Canada

This article about religious liberty in Canada is from Vancouver Sun.


Ontario’s top court has dismissed an appeal from a private Christian university that forbids sexual intimacy outside heterosexual marriage, denying its proposed law school accreditation in the province.

The key point about the code of conduct is that it doesn’t discriminate against any particular group, e.g. – LGBT. It also forbids excessive drinking and premarital sex by heterosexuals:

It includes requiring students to abstain from gossip, obscene language, prejudice, harassment, lying, cheating, stealing, pornography, drunkenness and sexual intimacy “that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.”

Now read this next part carefully. Although there was no legal support for denying a Christian university religious liberty and freedom of association, there was the hurt feelings of the LGBTQ community:

“The part of TWU’s Community Covenant in issue in this appeal is deeply discriminatory to the LGBTQ community, and it hurts,” the appeal court ruling said. “The LSUC’s decision not to accredit TWU was indeed a reasonable conclusion.”

In Canada “it hurts” means the end of human rights like religious liberty and freedom of association. Why? Because the Christian community in Canada has – for decades – voted to increase the size of government at the expense of liberty, in order to get free stuff. It doesn’t matter if the Christians who wanted a Christian university are hurt. Or that the Christian students at TWU are hurt. Only the hurt of the LGBT community matters, and their hurt changes laws, criminalizes dissent and annihilates natural rights. There are no such things as freedom of religion and freedom of conscience in Canada. There never was free speech, either. Anything that might hurt the feelings of left-wing groups has to be made criminal.

I’ll put this as plainly as anyone can: Canadian “Christians” have been voting to transfer wealth and power to a big secular government for years. They wanted government to cover health care, and now the government thinks that health care is providing free sex changes, free IVF and free abortions. Canadian “Christians” wanted their 30 pieces of silver more than they wanted the freedom to act as if the Bible was true in public. It turns out that the more wealth and power that you transfer to a secular leftist government, the more likely they are to trample all over the basic human rights of anyone who disagrees with their ideology.

This sort of thing happens all the time in Canada. Remember the case where another female judge overruled a biological father who grounded his daughter for sending nude pictures of herself using her father’s computer? This is normal in Canada, where biological fathers are competent enough to pay taxes, but not competent enough to parent their own children.

If any of this sounds unappealing to you, remember this at election time. The only way to stop the fascism of the secular left is to elect small-government conservatives who respect the basic human rights in our Constitution, such as the right to free speech and religious liberty. If you want to keep these rights, you will have to vote appropriately, and encourage others to vote appropriately.

    1. I was #NeverTrump in the 2016 primaries, and favored 1) Scott Walker and 2) Ted Cruz over him. But I think even Scott Walker and Ted Cruz could not have done as much to protect basic human rights like free speech, freedom of association, and freedom of religion.

      When I look at how this immoral judge uses her power to overrule a biological father, then censor him so he cannot tell about her Nazi behavior in public, I realize how lucky we were to have elected someone who appoints Supreme Court Justices who actually follow the law as written, instead of their emotions. I guess as long as you have the right political connections in Canada, you can be appointed to high courts.

      Clearly law schools in Canada do not teach students basic human rights, which is what I would expect from a fascist third world dictatorship.

      1. One of the problems with Canada’s first past the post system is that our federal elections are determined by basically two provinces: ON and Quebec. And with so many time zones, the election can be over and won before polls even close on the West coast. This is partly why Western Separation has gained a strong foothold since T2 was elected.

        In provincial elections, however, Canada is turning blue (conservative), even in Liberal strongholds in the Maritime provinces. The way things are going, T2 (who should have resigned over his attempted obstruction of justice scandal) is going to be trounced and Canada will have a conservative PM again. My only concern is that the Liberals have managed to already buy enough votes through rushing in voting rights for their unvetted “immigrants” and “refugees”.

          1. Keep in mind that we are not a 2 party system. We have 5 major parties, plus minor ones. Anything more than 20% is huge.
            Your link is to the CBC. They are bought and paid for by the Liberals. I would compare them to all the US polls that were saying Hillary would win in a landslide. Nothing political can be trusted from the CBC.


  2. Yes, such leftist travesties of injustice happen in Canada, especially where the “New Democratic Party” (NDP) and “Liberal Party of Canada” (LPC) are in power. Yes, some self-professed “Christians” vote for these parties, largely out of support for their “social concern” policies. But to say “There are no such things as freedom of religion and freedom of conscience in Canada” is clearly a case of the Fallacy of Hasty Generalization. So is the complaint that single-payer health care constitutes “socialism” with all the related problems of other disastrous “socialist” countries around the globe. When I began my PhD studies at NYU I had great fun dialoguing with friends at the Free Church in Queens where I served, asking them if they supported single-payer “socialist” K-12 public education. I see no philosophical differences between single-payer health care and single-payer “socialist” K-12 public education. Both have problems that the wealthy can address with private supplementary services.


    1. First of all, you had the bill that prohibited “hate speech”, section 13, which was repealed by the Conservatives. But there are still restrictions on free speech under the criminal code. (Yes, we Americans know about section 13, and the repeal of it under Harper)

      Second of all, people who disagree with transgenderism are liable to prison sentences in Canada:

      The sentence is up to two years.

      Now, Canadians often think, because they are within a legal system that punishes free speech with jail, that they are in the center. But Americans looking in from outside, protected by the First Amendment, know better.

      Here is one of your Human Rights Commissioners (government censors) explaining that there is NO FREE SPEECH in Canada:

      And as far as socialism goes, you don’t understand the concept. Socialism refers to government ownership of industry. So, when you have a single payer system, that’s socialism. When you have Air Canada, that’s socialism. When you have Canada Post, that’s socialism. When you have a crown corporation running mass transportation. When you have Hydro Ontario, that’s socialism. When you have equalization payments between provinces, that’s socialism. When you have public education where families cannot opt out of the system and get vouchers to purchase their own education, that’s socialism.

      Canadians spend $11,000 per year on average for their single payer health care, and then they wait months and even years for things as simple as an MRI, a knee replacement or a hip replacement. That’s socialism. I an get an MRI in the same week I ask for it. Taxpayer-funded abortion, IVF, sex changes, etc. That’s socialism.


      1. In parts of Canada, citizens can also get an MRI in the same week. American capitalists select the worst cases in Canada to maintain their advantages. Here health care is managed provincially (we don’t have “states” in Canada). Provincial utilities (e.g., health care, electricity, auto insurance, etc.) are not designed to enrich capitalists. Our Manitoba auto insurance rates have clearly been more affordable since the province took over management of this utility compared to previously. No Conservative administration has changed this back to the old capitalist paradigm.


        1. Look, I’m not sure where you’re getting your information from, but I don’t see anything being cited. I’ll cite from the Fraser Institute, which is the think tank that occupies itself most with these issues.



          This edition of Waiting Your Turn indicates that, overall, waiting times for medically necessary treatment have in-creased since last year. Specialist physicians surveyed report a median waiting time of 21.2 weeks between referral from a general practitioner and receipt of treatment—longer than the wait of 20.0 weeks reported in 2016. This year’s wait time—the longest ever recorded in this survey’s history—is 128% longer than in 1993, when it was just 9.3 weeks.

          There is a great deal of variation in the total waiting time faced by patients across the provinces. Ontario reports the shortest total wait (15.4 weeks), while New Brunswick reports the longest (41.7 weeks). There is also a great deal of variation among specialties. Patients wait longest between a GP referral and orthopaedic surgery (41.7 weeks), while those waiting for medical oncology begin treatment in 3.2 weeks.

          The total wait time that patients face can be examined in two consecutive segments.

          From referral by a general practitioner to consultation with a specialist. The waiting time in this segment increased from 9.4 weeks in 2016 to 10.2 weeks this year. This wait time is 177% longer than in 1993, when it was 3.7 weeks. The shortest waits for specialist consultations are in Ontario (6.7 weeks) while the longest occur in New Brunswick (26.6 weeks).
          From the consultation with a specialist to the point at which the patient receives treatment. The waiting time in this segment increased from 10.6 weeks in 2016 to 10.9 weeks this year. This wait time is 95% longer than in 1993 when it was 5.6 weeks, and more than three weeks longer than what physicians consider to be clinically “reasonable” (7.2 weeks). The shortest specialist-to-treatment waits are found in Ontario (8.6 weeks), while the longest are in Manitoba (16.3 weeks).

          It is estimated that, across the 10 provinces, the total number of procedures for which people are waiting in 2017 is 1,040,791. This means that, assuming that each person waits for only one procedure, 2.9% of Canadians are waiting for treatment in 2017. The proportion of the population waiting for treatment varies from a low of 1.7% in Quebec to a high of 5.7% in Nova Scotia. It is important to note that physicians report that only about 11.5% of their patients are on a waiting list because they requested a delay or postponement.making it worse!

          Patients also experience significant waiting times for various diagnostic technologies across the provinces. This year, Canadians could expect to wait 4.1 weeks for a computed tomography (CT) scan, 10.8 weeks for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, and 3.9 weeks for an ultrasound.

          Those are the facts. And the cost for this is about $13,000 per household:

          Regarding utilities, my impression is that Canadians pay 4 times what Americans pay, because we just pay the supplier directly rather than having a bureaucracy take their cut out of tax money first. A good example of what happens in Canada (and again, I’m citing numbers, whereas you just speak your feelings), is energy costs in Ontario.



          Since 2006, the price Ontarians pay for off-peak electricity has gone from 3.5 to 8.7 cents per kilowatt-hour – an increase of nearly 150 per cent.

          In 2006, the average household in Ontario spent $40.03 per month on electricity usage. That’s before taxes, delivery and any other charges. By 2016, however, this amount had more than doubled to $83.18 a month.

          And then Trudeau passed a federal carbon tax!

          I understand that Canadians are fed a steady diet of propaganda from their government about how great government monopolies are. But in America, we deal in facts. The fact is, that a free market increases quality and decreases price for the consumer. Americans believe that the consumer should be served by the free market. Canadians believe that the government knows best, which is why you tax consumers, then let a government monopoly decide who gets what for how much. And the numbers speak for themselves. In every area, Canadians pay more money for less service. Period.


        2. “In parts of Canada, citizens can also get an MRI in the same week.”


          Please forgive me for laughing, but in my poor red capitalist state, I can get my MRI the next day! That might be kind of “critical” too. 🙂

          God (and Trump) help us from becoming Canada or the UK!


      2. “Socialism refers to government ownership of industry. So, when you have a single payer system, that’s socialism. When you have Air Canada, that’s socialism. When you have Canada Post, that’s socialism. ”

        From Merriam-Webster
        Definition of socialism

        1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
        2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
        b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
        3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

        You are saying Canada is socialist, because it owns Canada Post. Is the US socialist, because it own the US Postal Service?

        Yes, we have crown corporations, but that alone does not make Canada socialist. It would, if the government denied alternatives. We have other airlines we can choose to use. We have other ways to deliver our mail and parcels. We even have private clinics, doctors and hospitals.

        It doesn’t matter what government is in power when it comes to crown corporations. The only way we can get rid of them is through a constitutional amendment. What the government of the day *can* control is how much money these crown corporations get – and because they are strongly unionized, you know that isn’t about to happen. But Canada does not own our industries and means of production.

        Almost 2 months ago, my husband ended up in the emergency. They kept him overnight. He needed a CT scan. We live in the boonies. The only place to get one was at another hospital in the nearest city. They were able to get him in that night. I had to drive him myself, because they couldn’t spare one of the 2 ambulances they had to get him there in time for the appointment they were able to get for him – at 7pm. Several weeks later, he was back in emergency and ended up there for 3 weeks. In that time he had numerous tests, including an ultrasound (I had to drive him to that one) in one city, an ECG in another city (I drove him to that one, too) and another procedure I can’t remember the name of right now, to remove fluid in his abdomen, that they were able to arrange transport for. The ultrasound was part of his emergency/urgent care treatment, and they got him in right away – again, at 7pm. The other procedures took a bit longer to get him in, because they were not considered urgent or emergency. All were completed within the 3 weeks he was in the hospital.

        It really depends on the urgency, type of care, and availability. For example, my husband is still waiting for a call from the pain clinic in the city. There is only one of this specific type of clinic in the entire province. He’s been waiting for more than a year, just for a call for an appointment.

        My husband’s care is partly paid for through the medicare system (which we have paid into through our tax dollars all our adult lives), partly through his private health insurance, and partly out of pocket. That is not a single payer system. The medicare system definitely needs to be improved, but that’s true of privately funded systems, too.


        1. Yes, the US IS socialist and has been at least since FDR.
          Now, we have open socialists and radical jihadists in Congress.
          We are just a little behind Canada and the UK when it comes to losing all of our basic civil and human rights. Not too far behind, of course, and the godless Leftists are pushing hard to catch up.
          And in America it is mostly because fake “Christian” women voted for socialism. I imagine that was similar in Canada and the UK.
          What’s the old saying? Socialism is death by suicide, communism is death by homicide. Or something like that.


    2. Canada is morally depraved beyond belief, on the same level as the UK. I have friends in the UK and they, like you, are frogs slowly boiling in water without even recognizing it.

      My UK friends, in an attempt to deny the obvious fascism in play, are now minimizing being arrested for free speech violations with phrases like “Well, he was eventually released and didn’t serve prison time.” That is AFTER the arrested people went “off the grid.”

      It helps of course that these friends of mine are moderate to liberal leaning to begin with and unlikely to be arrested for “speech which causes offense.” There is a sort of re-education in play in these countries – “think like us, or else.”

      As for the K-12 public educations system, it is completely failing here in the US, so I wouldn’t point to that as “successful” socialism. Our schools can’t teach any critical thinking, because they do not even know the scientific difference between male and female. And we are well behind the Canadian system with its multiple propaganda perversions passing as “education.” It is common knowledge that any Christian who sends their children to these government indoctrination centers (in either country) is committing spiritual abuse.

      Fascists rarely see any flaws in their fascism. Hitler died CERTAIN he was right, after all.


    3. Thanks for pointing that out.

      We have a separate document, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
      Fundamental freedoms – section 2

      2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:

      freedom of conscience and religion;
      freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
      freedom of peaceful assembly; and
      freedom of association.

      So, yes, we do have charter freedoms of religion and expression. It’s just not in the constitution.


      1. Freedom of speech isn’t in the CCRF.

        I think the problem with the CCRF is that I can find cases where the law is not applied equally. It always seems like the Human Rights Commissions and Human Rights Tribunals exist solely to restrict the rights of Christians and conservatives. I follow Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn, Small Dead Animals blog and Blazing Cat Fur blog, so I hear all about the human rights violations by the secular left in Canada. Who cares about what the CCRF says when it is interpreted by judges like Bertha Wilson and Claire L’Heureux-Dubé?

        All I have to do to win the argument is to show that justices don’t interpret the law to favor free speech, religious liberty, parental authority, etc. And by citing actual CASES where conservatives and Christians were defeated, I’ve done that. The actual cases I cited define how people live in Canada.

        Lots of other banana republic countries like South Africa have things like free speech and private property in their constitutions, but in practice, those rights don’t exist if they are interpreted by far-left judicial activist judges.


        1. Freedom of speech is part of freedom of expression.

          You are right about those “human rights” tribunals. Kangaroo courts, all of them. They need to be abolished.

          Therein lies part of the problem. We have these rights, but they are not being applied equally. Some are more equal than others. This is a cultural shift that is changing, but it is a battle, every step of the way. It is happening, though.


  3. While I agree with much of what is being said in this article, I do find it guilty of overreach. It’s not right to blame Canadian Christians with compromise in voting for leftist parties. Understand that Christians in Canada are not in the majority any longer. We try election after election to vote for conservative parties but most of the time, that doesn’t result in their election. Along with that, these conservative parties have, in many ways, given into societal pressures and end up creating party platforms that are sympathetic to abortion, LGBT rights, transsexual rights and euthanasia.

    The TWU law school issue is particularly egregious and perfectly illustrates the fact that even our Supreme Court doesn’t uphold religious or conscience rights. And yes, as this article also illustrates, parental rights are being stripped away when a parent is denied authority over a child’s wishes when they run headlong into leftist, progressive values.

    As a dual citizen of Canada and the United States, I don’t find the moral climate in the USA that much different. Yes, you have the First Amendment which should guarantee religious and conscience rights, but in practice, those rights are being opposed and denied every day. There is definitely fault on the side of we Christians who have failed to be the salt and light. We have allowed the world’s values to slowly seep into us. We have been “cooked” like the proverbial frog in the kettle. This reminds me of that verse that says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” We have failed to be devoted to God’s Word and are now paying the price.

    1. These are really good points. I might argue that Christians aren’t in the majority here either, even if self-professed “Christians” might be. That was probably once true in Canada too, but many of the wolves voted liberal. Good point about voting conservative only to find out that the “conservatives” are godless liberals – we have seen much of that here too!

      We are still able to fight here and win often enough to keep the other side honest. While Trump was definitely a miracle election, those things tend to happen more in countries with (positionally) righteous. He has significantly changed the landscape of the judiciary at all levels, and while I am sure many of those judges are not as conservative as they should be, there is still some fight left.

      Why, our SCOTUS even voted 7-2 IN FAVOR of the Colorado Christian baker – now THAT is a miracle – two liberals voting with conservatives in that case! (Blue states ignore the law, of course, except for laws they like.) A lawless liberal judge in very blue Massacheusetts was even arrested recently, a very positive sign.

      We have better gun rights than Canada, and of course, those are being attacked constantly by the Left. Even in some blue states, like Colorado and New Jersey, clearly unConstitutional gun restriction / confiscation laws are being ignored by the populace and even some county sheriffs.

      But, you are probably right that the trend is to go the “way of the world,” and perhaps we are just talking about a temporary stay of national suicide here in the US. We definitely are a highly depraved nation and have never been remotely Christian, in my honest opinion. But, we are still fighters, and Civil War may very well be on the horizon.

  4. If the father refers to his daughter as female again, then he will be arrested!



    At about the same time that story was published, the Supreme Court issued an additional, more heavy-handed “protection order” from the same ruling. The three-page document declares that the father, Clark*, will henceforth be subject to arrest, immediately and “without warrant” if any police officer has “reasonable” grounds to believe that he has in any way referred to his daughter as a girl in public or in private.

    The new order further stipulated not only that Clark must not discuss his daughter’s sex or gender identity in public, but also that he cannot share court documents describing his own gag order. On the one hand, this demand may seem ironic, since it covers a publicly available court ruling. On the other hand, the injunction is so broad that it naturally includes the very document upon which it is written and that document–with its threats of immediate arrest without warrant–has not, as of yet, been made available on the court’s website.
