Grassroots Canadians Working To Protect Our Democracy

As the elites try to suppress the voice of the Canadian people and weaken our democracy, more and more people are pushing back.

Recently, I spoke with Jeff Sharpe and Mac Rogerson of the Canadian Coalition for Responsible Government (CCRG).

CCRG describe themselves as “a non-partisan, not for profit, grassroots, community organization working to unite Canadians to protect democracy, freedom of speech, Canadian heritage and our Constitution.”

We spoke about the goals of CCRG, the state of democracy in Canada, and the biggest concerns surrounding the Trudeau government.

Sharpe started by pointing out that the CCRG is a “registered group, a Canadian NGO that gives voice to Canadians – not foreign interests.”

He pointed out that the radical-left wants to create a narrative in which all conservative Canadians and groups are demonized as far-right, and noted that he wouldn’t be surprised if some far-right groups in Canada are actually funded and organized by the left in order to push their demonization agenda.

Rogerson noted how the media often echoes the messaging of the radical-left by painting every conservative group with the ‘far-right’ brush, instead of looking at what the group actually stands for.

Sharpe explained that the CCRG is working to be a resource centre to hold government accountable, and work with other grassroots groups such as “Act for Canada, the Canadian Constitution Foundation, and Canadian Students for Charter Rights.”

He said the group aims to take an approach based upon legal and democratic means to ensure the voices of grassroots Canadians are represented.

For example, as part of their effort to raise awareness about the danger of radical Islamism, the CCRG has invited Imams to events in a spirit of democratic and open discussion.

They also are willing to work with all parties willing to stand up for Canadian interests, and invite politicians to their events.

Concerns about Canadian democracy

When the conversation moved to discussion about the state of Canadian democracy, Rogerson said he was concerned about the Trudeau government and foreign extremism, and noted that the Liberals held up a bill that was supposed to block foreign funding from interfering in Canada’s elections.

He also addressed an issue that is rarely discussed – but certainly should be – the state of the Bank of Canada.

Rogerson pointed out that prior to the year 1974, the Bank of Canada (which is supposed to serve the Canadian people) lent money to the government nearly interest-free. However, that practice changed in 1974 under the Pierre Trudeau government, at which point the Bank of Canada shifted towards borrowing from international and domestic banks. It made big profits for the banks, while our national debt has skyrocketed, and national control over the Bank of Canada has eroded.

Justin Trudeau has followed in his father’s footsteps by creating the ‘Canadian’ Infrastructure Bank, which makes Canada borrow from foreign banks to fund our own infrastructure – putting taxpayers at serious risk and eroding our sovereignty.

Those are the kind of long-term issues that put our nation at risk and weaken us internally.

As Sharpe said, “Pierre Trudeau sold us out to the globalists,” and now “Canada is being robbed.”

Rogerson also raised concerns about how the Trudeau government has brought in “bail-in legislation,” giving banks the right to take deposits and transform them into bank shares in the case of a crisis.

As Rogerson said, it’s like “legal theft.”

Sharpe explained how driving up Canada’s borrowing (which is skyrocketing under Trudeau), and pushing people further into debt often serves those in power, because they want people kept in poverty.

Sharpe described the system today as a “democratic dictatorship,” with the media often contributing to the weakening of Canadian democracy.

Often, the “media only covers the counterprotestors” when a conservative group and a far-left group have competing protests, said Sharpe, and “try to create their own narrative” to “paint the right as ‘racists.’”

Ironically, as the radical-left try to falsely smear grassroots Canadians as ‘facists,’ the real facist threat is going unchallenged in much of the western world.

As Rogerson said, we are seeing the “third wave of facism,” particularly with the ideology of radical Islam.

Sharpe said those in power fear grassroots movements, with Rogerson noting that those movements are growing across the world as people push back against the elites.

We also discussed the increasing attempts by the radical left to assert control over individuals, with Sharpe saying “universities have become indoctrination,” and Rogerson ripping the increased “social engineering” we see from the government.

Concerns about the Trudeau government

Both Sharpe and Rogerson were clear: Trudeau must go.

Rogerson noted how the “government wants divisions along lines of race,” and accuses people of “phobias” when they express opinions contrary to the government line.

When it comes to radical Islam, rather than the Trudeau approach of demonizing those who discuss it, Sharpe said we need to “get the community to debate” about the issue.

It’s a great point, since no ideology can be defeated without the community first coming together to discuss it and confront it – a discussion that Justin Trudeau and the elites seem desperate to silence.

Rogerson also expressed concerns (shared by many Canadians) about the Trudeau government’s ‘justice reform’ bill C-75. The bill takes rights away from the accused, giving more power to government prosecutors. It’s supposedly in the name of reducing court delays, but it amounts to making government even more powerful than it already is.

Rogerson said that despite the fact that the “left demonizes anyone who questions the system, people need to wake up” and see what’s really happening, rather than just trusting what the government and media tell us.

Grassroots Canadians protecting democracy

Democracy is about more than just voting. It’s about being able to hold the government accountable at all times, and it’s about ensuring that the true voice of the Canadian people is represented in the halls of power.

While the politicians get the attention, the true protectors of democracy are Canadians like those involved in grassroots groups such as the CCRG who are working everyday to speak truth to power, and building a movement that can help rescue our nation from the perilous path it is currently on.

Thank you again Spencer, it has become very difficult to find out about people with common sense and what real democracy is. We need these groups, and this is becoming an emergency.

With respect to “painting every conservative group with the ‘far-right’ brush”, we shouldn’t accept and yield to this far-left narrative intended to demonize conservatives who disagree with the positions of the far-left. The political spectrum has communists, socialists, fascists on the extreme or far left representing 100% government and anarchists on the extreme or far right. Conservatives who believe in the rule of law and our fundamental freedoms are far from being far-right anarchists.

Great article & info. Thank you.

Spencer, this is by far the best post you have ever written. The entity that is acting as our Federal government is in fact a corporation known as THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA registered in Washington DC. Do corporations have the constitutional right to tax the people? Absolutely not. The corporation represents the shareholders and not the man male/female. No taxation without representation. The movement is vast, the Liberals all over the world are gasping to hold on but the time had come for them to be gone. They lost track of time. Isaiah 2:19

Thanks for the great work you do Spencer!

Political correctness is nothing more than the Stockholm Syndrome taken to the national level. A tool of the fascist left.

This is a most interesting article and needs to be spread far and wide. I like the content and the intent, but I also wonder why I find Spencer covering it when I see that there is a FB site and being on FB daily I have never seen/heard of this organization. Having said that, it does bother me a bit to see so many independent organizations since it would appear that each one would, in essence, be lessening the impact of each of the other groups. One strong, dedicated, determined and cohesive group would, by definition have a greater… Read more »

I agree we need a strong binding of all these groups to pushback and hard!!! The left is killing this country and seemingly we have no rights….we need to rid ourselves of these idiots….Trudeau must go….


Good interview and report, Spencer. If CCRG gas an office in Calgary, I’d like to touch base with them. This is a clear summary of the governance problems facing Canadians as a direct result of the Trudeau government.


CCRG should invite SANDRA SOLOMON and others like her who faced the ‘horrors under Sharia law’ , a demonizing cult.
Jihadi Justin to dare speak for women when he is bringing ISIS into canada.
A vicious group that beheads, rapes, murder and emslaves women. He also said ‘terrorists have a right to keep their canadian citizenship instead of deporting them.
How can women allow jihadi justin into their midst when he only supports criminals that do vicious and brutal acts on them.


Sandra Solomon and other muslim women who expeienced and fled from the horrors of Sharia law are the best people to speak on this issue. Canadians born here have no idea about SHARIA LAW and M103. far less to explain it.


Now if only all the Grassroots organizations can unite and collaborate and spread the truth and find a means of educating the masses many of whom know nothing about what is going on and rely solely on CBC to enlighten them.

The most important part of the above article relates to the demise of the Bank of Canada and the rise of Global Bank control over Canada’s economy, which provides political control of our country. The more money Turdeau shovels out the helicopter to bury the rest of the world, the more Canada must borrow from the global banks at compound interest, the more viscous our tax laws and collection agencies become, the less freedom and joy we have in our lives. Support a multi-polar world. It is our only defense against globalism.


The Islamic scholar, Sayyid Qutb said “No political system or material power should put hindrances in the way of preaching Islam. It should leave every individual free to accept it or reject it, and if someone wants to accept it, it should not prevent him or fight against him. If someone does this, then it is THE DUTY OF ISLAM to fight him until either he is killed or until he declares his submission.” Many Imams are calling for a caliphate. Oh well.
