“In a liberal democracy, the ‘republic of reason’ must be paramount. Although necessary, the machines of bureaucracy and law, still must give way to the arena of common sense.”
Imagine a tribunal. In the room, there are two candidates for entrance into Canada. The issue is that there is only one spot available. One of these people will get to come to Canada and the other will not.
On one side of the room is a man who is 27 years old. He recently joined ISIS and left his home in Cambridge Ontario to go to Syria to “join the resistance.” While fighting beside his brothers in ISIS, he shot and killed two American soldiers and one Canadian. The only way that anyone knew of these killings is that he posted the pictures on Instagram, bragging about his “victory over the infidels.” He is now requesting to return to Canada and his normal life, working at Home Depot.
On the other side of the room, is Widlene Alexis Earle. You know her…. No description required, other than the fact that she is a 13 year old girl who loves soccer and dancing.
A jury is selected of 100 people and they are told to ignore the law and all government policy. They are instructed to make their decision based only on common sense, logic and reason.
I will bet you anything that 100% of the time, 100% of the jury admits Widlene to Canada based on their assessment and common sense.
Now look at reality.
With today’s Liberal Government, 100% of the time, the ISIS fighter gets into Canada and Widlene does not because common sense, logic and reason are never a part of the equation.
Can you see the problem?
