The topic of bailout subsidies during the so-called “pandemic” was addressed extensively on this site. In short, countless groups and industries were getting some form of payout from Ottawa.
However, a recent story is worth covering. A 2021 video of Danielle Smith (who wasn’t in politics at the time) recently surfaced. She said that tyranny — such as vaccine passports — were the kind of things that the Canadian Forces were supposed to fight against.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Smith has the backbone to stand behind her remarks, especially during campaign season. She has since backed down when asked about this.
Previously, the United Conservative Party, was headed by Jason Kenney, who supported vaccine passports, mask mandates, business closures, and jailed dissidents. Smith barely paid lip service to this, and ignores the fact that the U.C.P. accepted bailout money from Trudeau.
At the risk of being seen as trashing the military, it’s important to at least consider the financial incentives that the Royal Canadian Legion has had over the last few years. These groups made the decision to enforce Provincial vaccine passport requirements in 2021 and 2022, despite supposedly supporting freedom.
For a specific example, the Royal Canadian Legion received $14 million in late 2020 “in order to continue operations during the Covid pandemic this organization is receiving funding.” Was this a case of making a deal with the devil?
Then, there are other things to look at.

It would be nice to know how much each individual branch received in bailout money, but the specifics are not included in the CEWS database.
Also noteworthy is that the various Legions (or at least many of them) are structured as charities. This comes with significant tax benefits, which not even non-profits can match.

This is not the complete list. The Canada Revenue Agency lists over 200 such groups with a charity designation.
There’s nothing wrong — in principle — with such groups having this designation, nor receiving tax benefits for it. But one has to wonder if their status would have been revoked if they didn’t play along with the narrative.
In addition to the regular benefits of being a registered charity, such groups were also eligible for extra lockdown and rental subsidies.
Qualifying organizations that are subject to a lockdown and must shut their doors or significantly limit their activities under a public health order may be eligible for additional Lockdown Support of 25 per cent of eligible expenses.
In response to concerns raised by stakeholders about the program, the Government is proposing to amend the CERS in order to allow applicants to include eligible expenses in their CERS application before the expense has been paid. This means that organizations can include rent and other eligible amounts already paid in respect of a claim period as well as amounts that are payable for the claim period when submitting their CERS applications. Amounts that are not paid at the time of the application will have to be paid no later than 60 days after payment of the subsidy.
To be eligible, organizations must be individuals, taxable corporations and trusts, non-profit organizations or registered charities.
Does this mean that various branches of the Royal Canadian Legion took the bailout money as bribes? Not necessarily, but this can’t be completely ignored.
Don’t forget, the Canadian military supposedly saw this “pandemic” as a unique opportunity to use propaganda techniques on Canadian citizens. They refer to it as “shaping and exploiting information”. This was done with the purpose of pushing public health measures, while attempting to minimize civil disobedience.
In other words. the Forces used subversion and deceit in order to wage war on its citizens.
With that in mind, one has to ask if the various Royal Legions were also compromised. Did they turn their backs on veterans in order to push for compliance with lockdown measures?
If the Forces are okay with (or at least willing) to use propaganda in order to push a particular narrative, would various Legions do it as well?

There is an old saying in the military. We defend democracy we don’t practice it and one could apply to a point the same thinking to freedom and morality. I met a good deal of fine officers and men in the military but at the end of the day the majority of them are button pushers and butt kissers who’d push their grandmother over a cliff for a good PER. Scum dogs officers who would use the scamdemic to wargame propaganda on their fellow citizens are just slightly above embezzling bankers on the virtue scale. I’d imagine you could find cash grabbing Legion members a little further down the scale. Everyone is up for the hero biscuit until crunch time. Then words like freedom, patriotism, loyalty, membership, trust, and brotherhood become obstacles that need clearing to pocket the cash and certainly many of them are highly experienced. I have no good opinion of them while they take the Pfizer dirty money and rationalize their disloyalty. It would have been better for them to fail than to roll over like a dog. Just my humble opinion.
ULTRA WEALTHY German NAZI Family awarded UK contract for DIGITAL VACCINE PASSPORTS – Meet the Quandts, owners of ENTRUST (during WWII, this family ran their own, private concentration camp, supplying slave labor to their battery factory)
“Love is meant for husbands, but my love for Hitler is stronger, I would give my life for it.”
—Magda Goebbels (née Ritschel, formerly Quandt)
During World War II, the Quandt family had their own private concentration camp to supply slave labor for Quandt battery works:
“In 1943, and with direct support from the SS, the Quandts were able to establish a company-owned concentration camp directly alongside their battery works in Hanover. KZ (Concentration Camp) Hanover, a satellite of KZ Neuengamme, exploited the labour of both Jews and resistance fighters, as well as forced labour from France and Czechoslovakia. Prisoners from the KZ Neuengamme were selected for hard labour at the Quandt battery works…”

Now the Quandts are poised to control Vaccine Passports, the wholly integrated Digital IDs that will be used to monitor, control, millions of British citizens, if not eventually billions of people worldwide.
Minneapolis, Minnesota based Entrust is owned by German Quandt family. Entrust was acquired by Quandt family’s Datacard Group from Thoma Bravo reportedly for US $500 million. Datacard Group later changed its name to Entrust.
“The ability to verify identity and manage trusted access digitally is the key to transforming travel and citizen services around world. WorldReach is a great fit for Entrust, with deep experience in identity verification and digital onboarding solutions implemented at scale for governments and global travel providers. With the WorldReach acquisition, Entrust can help these organizations reshape government and travel service experiences around secure digital identities,” said Todd Wilkinson, CEO of Entrust.
