History is repeated until the lessons are learned.
We have been here before. In Canada, our civil liberties were suspended by Pierre Elliot Trudeau in October, 1970
Our government has historically invoked violence, oppression and the removal of civil liberties to maintain power and control. Most fail to remember or recognize the removal of rights as these events are typically marketed as “for your own safety” or “in the best interest of the people”. The end result is always the stripping of our civil liberties.
Governments never fully restore rights we surrender.
