Press release: Abbotsford based transgender identified public speaker Jenn Smith is bringing his highly controversial talk to the Abbotsford Social Activity Association building (33889 Essendene Ave) on Sunday August 18 from 6:30pm-8:30pm + q&a.
Smith’s talk, entitled “The Erosion of Freedom: How Transgender Politics in School and Society is Undermining Our Freedom and Harming Women & Children,” was last presented at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in June and was greeted by a large protest including members of Antifa who took over the talk floor until a fire alarm was pulled emptying the building (see talk details here).
UBC was subsequently ejected as an official participant in this year’s Pride Parade for having allowed Smith’s talk on campus. Smith then walked the streets of this year’s Pride Parade with a sign calling the Pride Society liars, and said characterizations of the talk as “hateful” or promoting “discrimination” are outright lies. Smith has said he will be filing a civil lawsuit against the Pride Society as well Brad Dirks and others (including media) that have repeated these unfounded lies.
Smith has done talks in Abbotsford before, but this is the first time he has done his new and highly controversial “Erosion of Freedom” talk here. A large portion of Smith’s talk analyzes SOGI 123 and the threat he believes transgender ideology poses to vulnerable children, many of whom go on to use highly toxic drugs to alter their appearance. Smith implicates the pharmaceutical industry in what he calls “an assault on our children.” Smith also looks at how transgender related laws and policies are not only trampling women’s rights to privacy and their own programs, but is also undermining freedom of speech (hence the title of the talk).
Smith appeared recently on RT America and in a popular documentary by Rebel Media on the Jessica Yaniv fiasco (see videos at bottom of this release). Yaniv is a transgender identified person that is currently taking legal action against female salon workers who refused to do hair removal around his male genitals (Yaniv claims to be a woman with a male body). Smith has cited this case as just one example of what he has been warning about for some time now.
The media is welcome to attend the talk, but the presentation is copyrighted and no audio or video recordings are permitted. Smith will be available for questions and comments on site.
This event has a $5 minimum donation entrance fee at the door (in order to regulate attendance). While the event is co-sponsored by the Canadian Christian Lobby, Smith’s talk itself is secular in nature and makes no religious references (Smith is not a Christian).
Note: Section 176 of Canadian Criminal Code makes it illegal to deliberately disrupt a meeting assembled for moral and social purposes, and Smith promises to file for charges against anybody that breaks the law. Section 430 of the Criminal Code also applies. Canadian case-law has made it clear protests are only allowed off property.
