News From the World Economic Forum

     Each year, the Forum of Young Global Leaders goes through a rigorous selection process to identify, select and celebrate remarkable leaders under-40 from different communities and industries worldwide. These young leaders exemplify what we need most today: hope, empathy, authenticity and driving solutions that change the world for the better. 
     This kind of effective leadership has never been needed more: The latest UN report on climate change warned that it is “now or never” to reverse human-induced global warming from carbon emissions. And, after two years of a global pandemic, growing geopolitical tensions and deepening social fractures demand scalable and coordinated action. 
     These challenging times are an opportunity for leaders to demonstrate their role in responsibly improving the state of the world. 
     Our Young Global Leaders (YGLs) class of 2022 is gender-equal and has representatives from 42 countries. We asked 10 of them to share their thoughts on how leaders can use their influence to build a more inclusive and sustainable future.

The majority of residents in free democracies don’t need or want to be led anywhere by anyone. We highly value our freedoms, independence and rights.

It is repulsive that unaccountable, unelected busybodies should impose their worldview on us. The creation of WEF sub-groups such as the Young Global Leaders is seditious to the duly elected governments in democracies.

The current 25 Canadian members:

Tony Abrahams Sean Frase Catherine Raw
Khaled Al Sabawi Chrystia Freeland Michele Romanow
Scott Brison Jean-François Gagné Maya Roy
Jessica Burgner-Kahrs Elissa Golberg Jagmeet Singh
Ailish Campbell Karina Gould Liam Sobey
François-Philippe Champagne Kim Hallwood Ilona Szabó de Carvalho
Jennifer Corriero Brett House Renée Maria Tremblay
Joelle Faulkner Vera Kobalia Nolan Watson
Jocelyn Formsma    

should be charged with conspiracy to commit sedition and hauled before our courts.

Political and private sector leaders cannot serve different masters, and their master is the people of Canada, not the World Economic Forum.

The WEF is blatantly and overtly socialist and totalitarian. Its objective is to control populations worldwide by replacing elected governments with subservient puppet regimes.

Our current federal government subscribes to this nonsense to avoid accountability to the Canadian people while seeking a soft landing in a new world order.

Thanks to a failed attempt to curb the spread of a contagious virus and predictable breakdowns in our international supply chains, we have a wrenching change in world order underway, but not what the WEF proposes.

It is clear that the world is dependent on petroleum to meet its energy needs and will be for decades to come. Net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 is a childish fantasy. Carbon taxes directly attack our economies, and persons’ financial security and are drivers of inflation.

We live in an increasingly complex and interdependent world that cannot be stage-managed by the WEF. Too many factors are beyond its control.

Without the refined products and technological innovation from developed industrial nations, the third world has no hope of lifting itself out of poverty.

As much as leftists enjoy telling us about the horrors of colonialism, according to the United Nations:

When the United Nations was founded in 1945, some 750 million people, nearly a third of the world’s population, lived in Territories that were dependent on colonial powers. Today, there are  17 Non-Self-Governing Territories remaining and fewer than 2 million people live in them. The wave of decolonization, which changed the face of the planet, was born with the UN and represents the world body’s first great success. Ref: https://www.un.org/en/global-issues/decolonization

Over 60 nations, including several commonwealth nations, have achieved independence since the American war of independence, the majority since 1945. It is fair to surmise that colonial powers’ technical and governance models sowed the seeds for independence. Not every nation that has achieved independence is or remains a democracy, but evolution and revolution result in a changing world landscape.

The WEF goals are the resurrection of colonialism on a breathtakingly grand scale. One world power, with emphasis on power.

The list of empires commenced in about 4500 BC, and there is only one dynasty left – the Alawi dynasty in Morocco, which originated in 1631. Over the centuries, over 250 separate empires and dynasties have been listed.

The list of megalomaniacs determined to rule the world as they knew it at the time is lengthy, but the last major empire, the Soviet Union/Empire, collapsed in 1991.

We do not need or want Mr. Schwab and his WEF. He will become another footnote in historical annals.
