Skip to comments.The Spirit of Free Republic Returns to Canada (Free Dominion)

Nineteen years ago, a small group of Canadian FReepers set out on a journey to provide Canada with the same sort of political outlet that our American friends have with Free Republic.
We started a Canada Chapter on this site, which we quickly outgrew. Then, we moved to our own site, and called it Free Dominion.
Out of gratitude to Jim Robinson, and our friends on FR, we provided a backup forum for FReepers for when FR experienced technical problems. And, many Free Republic members registered, and regularly logged in to say hi! Several FR stalwarts, like coteblanche, backhoe and B4Ranch, spent hours on Free Dominion, helping us keep our content fresh until we were on our feet. Backhoe was a regular on Free Dominion until he passed away.
We eventually had over 10,000 members, which is very significant in a small market like Canada!
Unfortunately, Free Dominion ran into some difficulties that I can't really talk about without putting myself at risk (you can find other threads here that detail our adventures, though). Ultimately, with great sadness, we had to close our doors in 2016.
Now, however, Canada is in a dangerous place. We are in a lockdown that our Prime Minister is promising will last until there is a vaccine, and he has already taken the opportunity to use his emergency powers to ban some 1,500 weapons! Some of us believe he is moving toward a universal basic income, and that he might attempt to win a majority this Fall.
Canadian conservatives cannot depend on Twitter and Facebook for our communications, so we have relaunched Free Dominion.
I asked Jim Robinson if it was okay to let you all know we are open again, and he was gracious enough to say yes. So, here is our link: https://freedominion.ca.
Although we have lost some of our faithful FReeper friends over the past few years, I hope some of you will drop by and register, maybe have some good conversations as we try to get the ball rolling again, from scratch!
And, as before, if you ever have a need for a place to hang out if FR is down, you will be welcomed with open arms at your sister site in Canada!
God bless and good luck.
I remember you and salute your fighting spirit. Long Live Canada and God bless you. We are all fighting the tyrants in our own way.
Years ago a Canuck on the Hannity forums demanded to know who he should sue for the global warming he was promised.
Would that question make a good sub-forum title for climate change?
“God Keep Our Land,
Glorious and FREE...”
Always loved that part of your anthem.
And Amen. Godspeed.
Just registered. Same username.
Considering it snowed here this week, and we aren’t allowed to leave, I would definitely like to sue someone! :-D
Love that idea for a sub-forum title!
Thank you! And, welcome!
Just reregistered, but you took my ! - exclamation point - away from me.
So I’m only Alas Babylon on Free Dominion, Alas Babylon! on Free Republic.
I will see if I can fix that! Thank for joining us!
This false science is affecting every nearly every aspect of sciences. From Archaeology and Astronomy too Zoology. I NEVER would of thought Astronomy would would be politicized over man made BS but it is.
Congrats on your actions in Canada!
It’s good to hear that the spirit of Free Republic, is alive and well with our neighbors to the north.
Well, look who’s here! Welcome back!
I got your ! back!
Congrats, blessings, and best of luck to your new (again :) site.
Will take a look.
REjoining! Ha ha! Been around here 22 years. Signed up with Free Dominion back when you first asked us to here!
