• Parental Rights Under Direct Attack in Canada … Is This Trend Heading South?

    Surge Summary: Canadian court prohibits father from interfering with 14-year-old daughter’s “sex-change” medical treatments. Father now faces punishment if he even discusses it!

    Read the shocking interview father gave to MassResistance! 

    Media in Canada censored on this story.

    Is this ghoulish oppression coming to America?

    In Canada, transgenderism has become a state-sponsored ideology. It is fueled by out-of-touch politicians, fiery protesters, judicial activists, and aggressive lawyers looking to push this agenda at all costs. Is this what’s coming to the United States and other countries?

    In a series of decisions over the past year, a Canadian court in British Columbia has ruled that a 14-year-old girl who believes she is “transgender” can go through medical procedures to “change” her sex to a boy – despite her father’s fierce objections.

    These procedures include puberty-blockers and opposite-sex hormones. According to the hospital’s own consent forms (which the father refused to sign), these drugs are experimental and will cause sterility and other dangerous side effects, such as unhealthy bone growth. The effects are irreversible. But the court is ignoring those dangers. At this point, the father reports his daughter is already growing facial hair and has a deepened voice.

    The court has severely clamped down on public reporting of this. The father is prohibited from discussing the case with media (or anyone else who might publish his remarks). He is banned from mentioning his own name, his daughter’s name, or the names of any of the doctors involved with the medical procedures, in regard to this case. Anyone in Canada who has posted articles or videos that disobey that ban has been ordered to remove them under threat of arrest.

    The case has made national news in Canada and is celebrated by the liberal media, which have no problem abiding by the ban and edit their articles appropriately.

    But MassResistance is not going to be silent on the details of this terrible perversion of justice and state-sponsored child abuse.

    A father loses his daughter to the State

    The father, Robert Hoogland of Vancouver, British Columbia has been through an incredible nightmare.

    This goes against all the normal laws in Canada (and most other countries) regarding parents and their children. A few years ago, Rob and his wife went through a divorce. But the terms of the divorce give the father and mother equal say in the daughter’s medical decisions. According to reports, at first the mother was against these experimental treatments. But now LGBT activists and “allies” have persuaded her to not to contest it. However, the father continued to adamantly oppose the treatments. And the judges arbitrarily took the decision out of the parents’ hands completely.

    Over the past year, the father has gained the strong support of pro-family groups in British Columbia, including Kari Simpson of CultureGuard, a major Vancouver-based organization. Kari has been at his side at every court appearance.

    On Feb. 8, 2020, Rob agreed to be interviewed by Arthur Schaper of MassResistance, to tell his story. It took place that day.

    This father’s courage should be commended, celebrated, and emulated by parents around the world!

    Our Interview with Rob Hoogland

    MassResistance: How did you find out about MassResistance?

    Rob Hoogland: A MassResistance activist based in British Columbia contacted me. That was a year ago.

    We share the same goal of stopping the abuse of children. For too long, doctors and legal professionals have been allowing young people to consent to procedures that are hurting them, and you guys oppose it.

    MassResistance is a great resource because you have such a great audience, and because I haven’t been able to talk. You are a great outlet for my voice, explaining what has been happening in Canada to the United States. Canada is pushing state-sponsored child abuse.

    MR: How did you daughter start thinking that she was a boy?

    RH: It started with the counselors in her elementary school, Brooke Elementary School in Delta, British Columbia. I don’t know the names of the counselors.

    Then she saw this doctor, Wallace Wong, a psychologist who is attached to the local high school, Sands Secondary School in Delta, BC. So counselors had apparently been telling my daughter that she was a boy for years. The schools have these SOGI [Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity] policies in which the counselors do not tell the parents when children come to them confused about their sex.

    MR: Did you notice anything at home?

    RH: She cut her hair really short. After grade 7, she asked us to start calling her a different name. The school counselor gave her this new name. It’s hard to know which counselors were indoctrinating my daughter, because the SOGI policy which has infiltrated the schools and the curriculum also has the counselors transferring from one school to another a lot.

    MR: When did this case start?

    RH: It started in the provincial courts in British Columbia in December 2018.

    I took the schools to court, along with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Delta School District, the Delta School District Counselors, Dr. Wallace Wong, as well as Dr. Brenden Hursh, a medical doctor [pediatric endocrinologist] at British Columbia Children’s Hospital does the cross-sex hormone therapy for children.

    Then this lawyer named Barbara Findlay sued me back. And the judge ruled in Findlay’s favor instead of mine.

    MR: This Findlay person, who is paying her legal fees? Who hired her to represent your daughter?

    RH: I have no idea who’s paying her. Technically, she wasn’t allowed to be on this case, because as a minor, my daughter needed parental consent to have this person as a lawyer. The judge said it was fine, though.

    This lawyer is so crazy. She’s a sex activist lawyer. And she writes her name only in lower case names and letters. If you write about her with upper case, she will sue you for that. She made a big stink about this in court last year when I wrote her name with upper case letters!

    MR: What happened next?

    In December, 2019, the case went to the British Columbia Supreme Court.

    We were in front of Justice Gregory Bowden. In February, 2019, he ruled that my daughter [then age 14] had to be addressed by her preferred pronoun. She could legally change her own name, which she did. She is now in charge of her own medical care, so she immediately began taking cross-sex hormone drugs like testosterone. (See the full Bowden ruling here.)

    I was told that as the father, if I did not abide by these rules, that I would guilty of “family violence” – which technically is what parents are guilty of when they kick their children in the head or they beat them in some way. “Misgendering” my daughter would get me convicted of family violence! That is a criminal offense.

    I was also told that I had to essentially cheerlead this whole process, though they are taking a healthy body and mutilating it. If I did not support this process, then I would also be guilty of family violence. I was told I could only talk to two people about this whole case: my two lawyers. And the only thing that I was allowed to have beyond that were my own thoughts, since they could not police my thoughts.

    British Columbia Children’s Hospital is very open about giving puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones to children, as well as other “services.”

    Within days, I did an interview with The Federalist. I had decided at that point: “I am not going to respect the ruling.” A girl is a girl, that girl is my daughter.

    After that, I was hauled in front of Justice Marzari, another BC Supreme Court Judge, in March 2019. Because of … Keep Reading the rest here.
