A Home Rule Proclamation for a New Republic

Self-Government established under Common Law

in the land known as Canada

Kanata Logo-2

Under Natural and Customary Law, all authority arises from the inborn and unalienable liberty and sovereignty of the people, who are the source of all law and government. Under this maxim, all legitimate government owes its existence to the people whom those governments serve, and governments exist to secure and protect the rights of the people and their communities. Any system of government that becomes destructive of those ends is not legitimate, lawful, operative or constitutional, and is in fact no government at all.

The people of the territories known as “Canada” possess both the collective and individual right of self-governance to ensure their well being, peace and liberty as freeborn men and women. That right precedes and predates all of the laws, statutes and acts of the government of Canada, its Parliament and the Crown of England, and cannot be usurped, superseded, nullified or in any way altered or diminished by those external powers.

Under this same right, the people of the territories known as “Canada” are not obligated to owe allegiance to Canada, its Parliament or the Crown of England or their laws when these powers violate, diminish or threaten either the liberties and rights of the people, the sanctity and health of the land itself or higher moral and international law. Under such conditions, the people are required to actively dissociate themselves and secede from those tyrannical powers, and through their own self-governing assemblies establish a new and just system of government and law to maintain the civil peace.


THEREFORE LET IT BE KNOWN:

That We the People on the land known as “Canada” proclaim and establish our unalienable liberty to create and charter self governing, home rule Peoples Assemblies with the power and the lawful, jurisdictional and legislative authority to enact the following laws and binding measures:

 

  1. The abolition of Crown jurisdiction and authority, its courts and its statutes

     

  2. The canceling of all federal and provincial taxes and payments

     

  3. The issuing of a Republican Constitution and Charter of Liberties  (* see Charter below)

     

  4. The establishing of sovereign common law courts of record as the sole de jure legal system

     

  5. The establishing of trained citizen militias to replace and absorb the standing army and police

     

  6. The expropriation of all banks, surplus wealth and land and their equal redistribution to all of the people in the form of a guaranteed annual income

     

  7. The expropriation of all medical services, transportation and surplus housing and their operation on a free or subsidized basis for all the people

     

  8. The abolition of all income taxes, rents and mortgages and an imposition of a progressive tax on all inherited, corporate, foreign and excess wealth, and on all foreign corporations and churches

     

  9. The abolition of all foreign ownership of the land and the economy

     

  10. The establishing of agricultural reserves and cooperative land trusts, and the subsidizing and protection of family farms and the lands and waters as a whole

     

  11. The recognition of the sovereignty and independence of all self-governing indigenous nations, including their right to succession within a framework of equal and lawful partnership with the non-aboriginal peoples through their Republican constitutional governments

     

  12. The establishing of local neighborhood and workplace Assemblies to facilitate direct grassroots democracy by all the people
