Jack Minor’s face lights up when he’s asked to describe himself.
“Who am I?” the People’s Party candidate in Beauséjour asks with a chuckle before giving a concise, but comprehensive answer.
“I’m a carpenter, a pastor, a father, I have four children and I have grandchildren, I’m a gardener and a farmer, I am not a fisherman,” he adds with a laugh.
“But I love to act and I love to sing. I’m a performer.”
When asked why he decided to run in the 2021 federal election, Minor has a ready answer.
“I think this is an incredibly important election,” he says.
“The future of Canada, in my estimation, is on the line and there doesn’t seem to be another party besides the People’s Party of Canada that is taking a real stand against the globalist agenda, which I think is catastrophic.”
Minor argues that international institutions such as the World Economic Forum and the World Health Organization along with individuals such as George Soros and Bill Gates are using “the so-called pandemic” and the COVID-19 vaccines to push their agenda.
“They’re about to achieve totalitarian, world government control and I know that sounds like a conspiracy theory, well I guess it is, but I think it’s a conspiracy fact that is relatively well established.”
Only one election issue
Minor says that local or regional concerns don’t matter in this election because there’s really only one issue.
“All of us across Canada are being equally oppressed with the vaccine mandate,” he says.
“The vaccine mandate is the number one issue for people. It creates an apartheid, a medical apartheid, it destroys our businesses and it’s based on really bad science, on faulty science.”
Minor contends that the vaccines are dangerous and unnecessary because the COVID virus is no more serious than a relatively mild cold.
“I’m not saying that there’s no virus. I’m saying it is not near as dangerous as it’s being marketed,” he says.
“It is nothing like it’s portrayed, the numbers are wildly exaggerated.”
Minor maintains that the test for COVID “is a worthless piece of crap,” and that hospitals are forcing doctors to declare deaths COVID-related when they’re not.
To make matters worse, the mainstream news media are peddling a constant stream of propaganda.
“That is a fascist agenda and the people of Canada cannot access the truth from our traditional media and that has never happened before in our history and it is the most critical factor in this election.”
He points to The Epoch Times as one example of a news outlet that does tell the truth.
When asked to explain in more detail how exaggerating the effects of the virus and pushing people to get vaccinated advances the “globalist” agenda, Minor replies that for one thing, it destroys or weakens national economies.
“It causes countries like Canada to go into outrageous debt; we’re over $1.3 trillion in debt now because of the pandemic, which makes us fragile and vulnerable to the world financial organizations.”
As the federal election campaign began in mid-August, Jack Minor wrote a four-page essay entitled: The Game’s Afoot. An encouragement to the Candidates of the PPC.
In it, he writes about the Acadians who gathered for their first national conference in Memramcook, near where he lives, on August 15, 1881 exactly 140 years before Justin Trudeau called the federal election.
Minor’s essay outlines Acadian history including their expulsion in 1755 and also describes the struggles of his Irish forbears to free themselves from British rule in the Easter Uprising of 1916.
He compares PPC candidates to the Irish militia then.
“There is little support for us. We are maligned on every side. We have no expectation of winning.”
But Minor notes that he and his follow candidates “have no moral option but to hurl ourselves against the barricades of globalism and their long range guns…
“I want to encourage you all and to remind you that ultimately it is the story itself, the tale of national courage that wins.
“And most importantly, I must insist that your particular part, within that story, needs to be ‘remembered’ and told, and perhaps even sung, over the flowing cups of future generations.”
This is the second in a series of reports on candidates in Beauséjour.
