The Republican Movement of Quebec joins forces with the Stram Kurs political party founded by Rasmus Paludan in Denmark
We are very pleased to announce that the Republican Movement of Quebec is now joining forces with the Stram Kurs political party, founded by Rasmus Paludan in Denmark. Stram Kurs is a newly formed party started by lawyer Rasmus Paludan in July 2017. The party wants a tighter course for refugees and immigrants in Denmark, and will show all non-Western people from Denmark unless they are refugees from one of Denmark's neighboring countries. Stram Kurs has only published a short political program that deals solely with their foreign policy.
The party intends to stand up to the parliament. They started shortly after their start-up collecting the approximately 20,000 electoral declarations as required to be ready-made. In early 2017 Rasmus Paludan started a Youtube channel called "Freedom Voice", on which he uploads short video clips of himself attempting to provoke left-wing activists, as well as interviewing renowned politicians. Paludan was previously a member of New Citizenship, where he was listed as the party's candidate for KV17.

The Myth Is Canada: the British North America Act, March 29, 1867 is not a Constitution for it constitutes nothing
Nephalem Films: To understand where we are, we must first understand how we got here... Deep research has unearthed key events, which have both created and hidden the truth of the myth that is Canada.
Event: From the 1700s into the next century, England and France were tense partners representing both Upper and Lower Canada. General Wolfe's death in the final battle on the Plains of Abraham in 1759, secured victory for England, the prize ultimately known as, 'Canada'. The Treaty of Paris joined the formerly British controlled Upper Canada with France's Lower Canada into the French legal entity - a Corporation Sole, the 'Province of Quebec'. The amalgamation process from 1759 through 1763 seated the first British Governor General within that Corporation Sole, which in 1787 amalgamated all of 'Canada' enabling Britain to seat a Governor General to rule over the their Colonies known then as: the 'Province of Canada' and New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
For 80 years between 1787 and 1867, the British placed many Governors General into the Corporation Sole. Issuing Letters Patent, the British Monarchy thereby proclaimed that Governor Generals held the 'power' to create and control the government of Canada, as a British Colony.

TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is proud to receive a 2017 Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Award for Excellence in Conservation. The Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Awards, administered by the Ontario Heritage Trust, are prestigious awards that recognize exceptional contributions to heritage conservation, environmental sustainability and biodiversity, and cultural and natural heritage. The award recognized the success of JHR's Indigenous Reporters Program, which aims to improve the quality and number of Indigenous voices in Canadian media.
The Indigenous Reporters Program aims to increase the number of Indigenous journalists and stories in media. It does this by offering in-community training, sending a journalism trainer to a First Nations community. The program further alleviates some of the financial burden of Indigenous journalism students by offering scholarships, and provides hands-on experience for emerging Indigenous journalists by offering internships at mainstream and Indigenous newsrooms.
The program also aims to educate non-Indigenous journalists and journalism students on best practices for reporting on Indigenous communities.
