My husband and I are on a mission to restore Canada’s traditional roots of liberty under law, decency, truth, and honour. Our weapon of choice is information; we produce documentaries that tell stories of our past, stories of heroes like Stephen Langton who stood up for freedom at great personal risk and of villains like King John who would take away those freedoms in a heartbeat if we let them.
Our current project is called A Right to Arms. Its goal is to remind Canadians of their traditional right to protect themselves, against wild animals, against criminals, and against tyranny, and to have the tools necessary to exercise that right.
“But Brigitte, the laws in Canada right now say we don’t have any rights to carry weapons. We have privileges. And the courts agree with that.”
Yes, we know. That’s our point. The laws and the courts are out of line, because they go against our traditional rights as free men and women dating back centuries.
We need to change those laws. In our system we change laws by putting pressure on our elected representatives. Politicians don’t lead, they follow where the people lead. But we can’t change laws until we change the conversation. Petitions aren’t enough. We need information, and resolve.
This is where we help, by producing entertainingly informative documentaries that lay out the historical and logical foundations of our rights and liberties, and the ways in which we, today, can act to restore them. We crowdfund our films because we are telling the story of the people’s rights. And because we want to show politicians there is widespread support for restoring our liberties.
Real support. Not just from people who signed an online petition or clicked a Like button, but from people who cared enough to contribute some hard-earned money as well. It doesn’t have to be a lot; we know times are hard and every little bit helps, both to make the documentary and to show the chattering classes that you care.
So here’s our challenge. Our current project is nearly three-quarters funded, which is great. And we still have three weeks to go. Let’s use those three weeks to show politicians that we value freedom and self-reliance. Contribute at least $1 to the Kickstarter campaign and put your name to this campaign. Everyone who contributes gets listed in the credits at the end. When we show our Magna Carta documentary to politicians and they see the 1200+ list of names of contributors at the end (click on the link to see for yourself how long it takes to run through it), their jaws drop. They get it.
Do the same again. If you wish to contribute more than $1 that’s fine, too. But all you need is that dollar to put your name on a list of people who showed real support for restoring their tradition of liberty under law.
Remember: You have the right to mistrust your government, but it does not have the right to mistrust you.
