Professional regulators increasingly fall prey to Canadian agency’s ‘woke’ capture


The Awakening is a radical political movement that works in part by “capturing” organizations. Once “captured,” an organization is awakened in its purpose and activities, using available resources to spread awareness, often in an authoritarian manner.

For example, an employer caught in wakeness brings in a “diversity expert” in the company’s human resources department. That department then creates Awakened Policies, eliminates liberal policies, forces employees to submit to Awakened Indoctrination, publishes Employer Awakenings, and treats people based on Awakened Standards. Set out to hire, discipline, and fire.

Awakened experts say,political commissarCommissars are representatives of the Communist Party embedded in military units to ensure the party’s control over the military, such as through political indoctrination.

Awakening has captured nearly every institution in Canada: education, charity, government, business, finance, Aboriginal settlement, and even churches.

We are currently witnessing arrests of various professional regulators and, in turn, industries and professionals subject to their regulatory powers. Their power is huge. They are told who can work, what education they must have, what values ​​they must have, and what they do professionally or in their private lives that warrants sanctions, including deprivation of their license. including the power to decide whether it is fraudulent activity.

When a specialized agency is captured, these powers can be weaponized to fulfill their awakened purpose.

Renowned anti-arousal psychologist Jordan Peterson under threat From his professional regulator, a University of Ontario psychologist, whether to submit to social media re-education and oversight or face loss of the right to practice. Similar examples include nurses. Amy Hammpediatrician Dr. Kurvinder Kaur Gilland emergency room doctors Dr. Christopher Milburn.

the capture of legal Professional regulators are now well underway. Visit almost any Canadian Law Society website and you will find many pledges of Awakened Loyalty and Awakened Projects.

Alberta Law Association (LSA) is a good example.Its website has many awakened features statement When initiativeVirtually only the Wakeed Initiative was discussed at the December 2022 Annual Meeting.

Since at least December 2019, the LSA hasregulatory purposesIt aims to “promote the impartiality, diversity and inclusion of the legal profession in the provision of legal services”.The word does not appear in the main story lawyer lawthe law giving the LSA its powers.

As part of this wake capture, in 2021, similar efforts By the Law Association of British Columbia, the LSA ensures that all approximately 11,000 regulated attorneys “pathIn November 2022, it will automatically suspend about 30 lawyers who have not completed the required training.

The Path is said to be an act of Indigenous reconciliation. But it is the politicized regulatory excesses that are likely to cause reconciliation and seriously harm Canada in the process.

LSA may not have the legal authority to mandate cultural retraining like The Path. Some Canadian legal communities have the power to impose “continuing professional development” (CPD), but the LSA may not. Legal Professional Law is much more narrowly worded than the laws of other states.

LSA appears to claim partial legal authority. Call to Action #27 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. However, these calls to action are non-binding demands and do not themselves confer legal authority.

Even though the LSA has the authority to impose CPD, training for “cultural competence” is a whole other bird. It is more a practice of historical and political indoctrination than professional education.

Path is an awakening genre called “Decolonization”. The Path, like all Awakenings, adopts a ‘postmodern’ ideology and relies on a flawed and grossly distorted ‘history’ to outlaw Canada’s political and even social underpinnings. . You will find that Canada’s history with its Indigenous peoples is primarily one of racism and genocide. It is a historical lesson full of wild speculations about perverse psychological motivations and socioeconomic causation, all presented as established facts and almost completely devoid of offsetting facts, nuances, or context. lacking in

It reads, “Canada’s colonial legacy lives on.” “It’s clear when you look at the overall numbers: Indigenous people make up about 5% of Canada’s population, but she makes up 27% of the prison population.”

The Canadian legal system is said to be inherently tainted with this evil. built in Canadian Law, Policy, and Structure” (emphasis added).

The Path contains several practice recommendations that provide a cover fig leaf for what is essentially a political undertaking. We are taught to treat indigenous peoples with special care, including a focus on (intergenerational) “trauma.”

“But why should I care?” you might ask. “Even if it’s not technically legal, The Path will help Indigenous peoples, and that’s what matters.” The Path’s social and political vision is a utopian dream like no other.Utopian dreams always have a plausible atmosphere and profound sentimental appeal, but most everytime lead To Ruin.

“Workers of the world, unite! All you have to lose is your chains!”

won’t that How nice?

Paz, along with the entire “decolonization” project, would seriously harm Canada. It increases racial divisions, erodes liberalism and democracy, and perpetuates and exacerbates the devastating socio-economic conditions that have plagued many Indigenous Canadians for too long.

Sentimental dreams do not solve real problems.

To illustrate The Path’s destructive tendencies, take its delivery method as an example.

Catching professional regulators unwittingly is dangerous, but the legal community is entangled in the legal structure itself, making it a particularly vulnerable attack vector.

Liberal democracy is governed by the “rule of law”. Free citizens elect legislators who make laws. Citizens must know and obey the laws. If anyone wants to change the law, they must appeal to voters and legislators.

Lawyers have a special job in liberal democracies. It is about administering and protecting the rule of law. Lawyers are like hockey referees. Their job is to maintain and enforce the rules that ensure a good game. Their job isn’t to change or bend the rules in the middle of the game to give one team an advantage over the other.

While some may argue that The Path contains valuable and important history and proposals for changing Canadian law, it does not accurately record this history and where these proposals were made. please.

The Path aims to change how lawyers think about the law and how they practice it, changing both what the law is and how it should be applied. is advocating. It seeks to effectively change the law, not through the legislative branch, but by applying direct ideological force to the “judgment”. It is both authoritarian and anti-democratic.

Paths are dangerous not only in their delivery, but also in their content.

Canada is enlightenmentincluding humanist values ​​such as objective truth, reason, individual worth and freedom.

The Path’s postmodern ideology is the antithesis of the Enlightenment. A product of mid-twentieth-century French philosophers, including Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault, postmodernism is based on “metaphysical relativism” and “moral relativism.” And there is no such thing as “right or wrong”. Rather, there are only real-world perceptions and moral perceptions, which vary from person to person and culture to culture. Your perception of the real world and morality is simply a product of power hierarchies, or your place in several “intersecting” power hierarchies. This is why Awakening is obsessed with race and other tribal affiliations. Whereas the Enlightenment sees individual human beings, postmodernism sees only tribal members.

It is clearly surprising, if not a little dubious, that what is supposed to be an “indigenous worldview” is a form of European postmodernism.

“We can see the science and origin story as follows. simply It’s a different way of describing where we came from,” Paz tells us (emphasis added).

But more importantly, postmodernism is detrimental to our legal system, which so heavily presupposes the existence of the real world. The purpose of the trial is to determine “what happened,” not “what is everyone’s ‘lived experience’ of what happened.” Courts do not read laws and contracts and ponder what those words mean to each tribe. Rather, courts interpret language to understand its objective meaning. Compare this to The Path.

“The king thought the treaty was about handing over the land. The indigenous peoples thought it was about sharing the land.”


All Canadians need to understand highly democratic laws. In terms of how we manage our families, how we manage our communities, and how we are part of the Canadian dynamics” (emphasis added).

One particularly devastating postmodern tool used by Path is perhaps intended to be used to improve our “colonial” legal structures, but it is also the “organizational Discrimination” is the awakened doctrine.

To understand the meaning of this term, first ignore The word “discrimination”. Systematic discrimination is simply a label applied to the system. not discriminatory However, this leads to statistically different results, or “differential effects,” depending on race. The word “discrimination” is attached to the term, perhaps to give the impression that there is an invisible prejudice at work. It’s a purely rhetorical trick. This trick works because Awakening knows you are a liberal, compassionate person, someone who denounces disadvantage based on race, sex, gender, and so on.

This definition may seem silly, but the Alberta Bar Association has basically adopted it. meaning.

To understand what this means, imagine a bank that makes loans based on one simple rule. Applicant income must be over $100,000. Given that relatively few Indigenous people earn more than $100,000 for him than other Canadians, the system has mixed ramifications. This, only thissystemic discrimination. ” Remember, we already have a term for racially biased people and rules: discrimination.”

What would happen to Canada if the legal community, lawyers and courts set out to end “systemic discrimination”? What would Canada look like if it guaranteed the same outcome? It’s not diversity, it’s dystopia.

I dig further into these ideas to explore the likely detrimental effects that Awakening, including The Path, may have on settlement. This includes, most importantly, closing the socio-economic gap. You can read the full version of this article. here.
