EVENTS

June 9th, 2018. Darrell Furgason.

On June 9th Freedom Defence Canada presented Dr. Darrel Furgason, who spoke on the subject of “The Assault On Our Rights and Freedoms and What to Do About it.” at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville B.C. The response was tremendous. We had a capacity audience who responded enthusiastically to Dr. Furgason’s message. He divided his message into three parts 1) How we arrived at the Assault on our Rights and Freedoms  2.) The Federal Government’s Summer Jobs Funding withdrawal: The Attestation and finally 3.) Euthanasia, Conscience Rights and the Dissenting Medical Practitioner. The event was a tremendous success, and we gained many new members in the process.

March 2018 S.O.G.I. 123 Protest Event.

In March of 2018 Reed Elley and several members of Freedom Defence Canada went to Campbell River British Columbia to support the initiative of the Canadian Christian Lobby (C.C.L.) against the British Columbia Teacher’s Federation (B.C.T.F.) In the presentations given, the dangers of S.O.G.I. 123 were highlighted and the school board members were asked not to implement the program. Many concerned parents were present as were famous anti SOGI activists Laura Lynn Thompson and Jenn Smith amongst others. The response was inspiring and it is hoped the fight against S.O.G.I. will continue.

Faith Goldy and Social Conservatives United.

Our very first event, when we were still known as Social Conservatives United, took place on October 22nd 2016, shortly after we had come into existence in August of that year. Our speaker was Faith Goldy, now an independent journalist, then a member of Rebel Media. She spoke about how our society got to the place we are now in, the rise of Cultural Marxism, Statism and the assault on our rights and freedoms. 63 people were in attendance and this was our first ever event. It was the real launching of our organization and a welcome start to our mission of protecting Canadian’s rights and freedoms.
