Dear Mr. Editor:
There is a saying that “liars figure but figures don’t lie.”
It is a fact that not one Prime Minister of Canada had/has any obligation to the public (you) in their signed oaths.
The importance of oaths rests in the intention of the taker of the oath by stating it as a fact. It is not just a promise, but much more. And although the word “promise” may appear in the oath itself, the promise in the oath becomes a binding fact.
If oaths are not used or ignored, we don’t have an important foundation in our society that keeps every one of us at bay to do our jobs without hurting our fellow man.
The Oath of Allegiance of the Prime Minister of Canada is to “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, Her Heirs and Successors” and further “. . . I shall keep secret all matters committed and revealed to me in this capacity, or that shall be secretly treated of in Council. Generally, in all things I shall do as a faithful and true servant ought to do for Her Majesty.”
These oaths are available to anyone who asks for it. And as they are written and signed, the Prime Minister of Canada has no responsibility or obligation to the public (you) whatsoever.
It indicates that the monarchy is alive and well in this country in the 21st century as a governing force, contrary to common belief that Canada is a sovereign, democratic country.
Obviously, monarchy and democracy can’t exist together, so when Her Majesty visits Canada, she brings her own flag that flies above the national flag of Canada (to show who is in charge).
If this country is sovereign and a democracy (as your politicians will tell you), why is the national flag submitted to any other flag within this country?
The belief that you live in a democracy is an illusion (that is according to their written and signed oaths). Consequently, it doesn’t matter which party is elected and who the Prime Minister is!
In light of these facts, one might come to the conclusion that every federal election is a charade and a “venting” of anger to make you feel important. But at the end, it doesn’t matter who occupies the Prime Minister’s seat. They are all the servants of the British Crown and not yours!
Take their words for it.
