Taking Control: Based Northern Alberta Mennonite Community Says No to Covid Mandates

Northern Alberta Mennonite Community has 97% Natural Immunity Rate, Organizes Coach Service to Send Residents to Freedom Convoy Protest, eggs vehicles of healthcare bureaucrats

I want to discuss the Alpha chadness of the bad-ass Mennonites from La Crete, Alberta. While the vast majority of Canadians have had hysterical Covid mandates forced upon them, the Mennonites of La Crete said, “No Way”. No mask mandates, churches remained open, schools were maskless and in-person learning continued, no QR codes, nothing. All coercive Covid mandates were blocked by La Crete’s municipal politicians. In the face of globohomo tyranny, the people of La Crete were able to take control.

Here I will go over some information on how La Crete is just so darn cool and point out how pro-EuroCanadians on the Dissident Right can learn from the hardy Mennonites.

La Crete, Alberta  

Deep in the sub-arctic marshlands of northern Alberta’s Mackenzie County, the mighty Mennonites tamed the remote wilderness and carved into it some of the northernmost agricultural land in the entire world. A town of around 3200 Mennonites, it shines like a gleaming spire of Christian Canadian goodness, in stark contrast to the bleak Indian reserves that surround it. In a still wild region where it is not unlikely to have to stop your car due to a buffalo or a passed-out victim of colonialism being on the road, La Crete boasts a full golf course and a ski hill. I have been there myself. I remember being astounded when we came into town. Hours of dingy black spruce marsh forest gave way to a town that was cleaner and more orderly than most others I have been in. Most of La Crete’s businesses close over the lunch hour so everyone can have lunch together. There are no liquor stores in La Crete. Lots of hunting, fishing, and hockey. They live like 1980s Canada without the booze.

Taking Control of the Mandates

La Crete never issued or enforced any mask or vaccination mandates and had a voluntary vaccination rate of 35%. The La Crete Chamber of Commerce organized having a private testing firm come to the community. 1200 residents paid to have their antibody levels tested by the firm. They had a 97% rate of natural immunity.  If you go on the La Crete Chamber of Commerce website they have a placard celebrating their natural immunity success.

According the SouthPeace News, schools in La Crete did not stop in-person learning like the rest of the province did in May 2020. They also never instituted mask mandates for students or teachers.

In the same article it was noted that La Crete was also the site of a recent case of vandalism against AHS vehicles, when RCMP confirmed eggs were thrown at four cars while AHS healthcare bureaucrats were in the area.

The La Crete Chamber of Commerce also organized a 30 person coach to join the Freedom Convoy test in Ottawa. For $600 residents get a return trip to the Ottawa protests with meals and hotels included. They have been documenting their trip on their Facebook page. Their last post says they started their return trip a day early due to escalating violence in Ottawa. It can also be seen on their Facebook page that they put on BBQ fundraisers to help fund the convoy in conjunction with local businesses.

Recently, Mackenzie County issued a memo to Alberta utility company Atco. stating that the county finds their policy of forced vaccination of their employees and subcontractors will not be tolerated. “Mackenzie County requires that ATCO reconsider its vaccination policy if they wish to continue doing business in Mackenzie County.” The memo goes on to state that the council unanimously passed policy that reiterates the County’s “intolerance to mandatory vaccination and other discriminatory requirements for employers” and has communicated that policy to the federal and provincial government.

The instances reported above are occurring in La Crete because it is a homogenous European-Canadian community that consciously uses municipal politics to protect their Mennonite Christian culture. As a people who consciously separate themselves from Canada’s liberal mainstream culture, they understand themselves as a minority that needs to guard the integrity of their people from degenerative influences. Folks in La Crete are decent enough, but not overly friendly. They know they have a good thing going and don’t much like outsiders. They act like a people who know who they are. Pretty cool.

Long ago they created a deliberate strategy to bring together like-minded people and start a community where they could give themselves as much independence from state control as possible. Now they live in a bustling remote Mennonite community where politics are guided by their church and only fellow Mennonites have control over municipal affairs. La Crete Mennonites also move into surrounding communities and get elected to their schoolboards and town councils, thereby influencing municipal politics throughout the region. 

These actions closely resemble the framework I outlined in my Regional Approach article. A broad strokes summary of the Regional Approach is that we find an agreeable region of Canada that is still conservative, mostly white, and has a small population. A substantial cadre of pioneering dissident EuroCanadians move to the area and establish themselves. In a few years we begin running candidates in the county/municipal elections. If we work hard, we could take the majority of council seats in just a few years. After this work is done, we move on to taking over other rural municipalities until we control the region.

This is the Regional Approach, a political strategy that aims to maintain EuroCanadian identity while accruing political power for our people. The Regional Approach is meant to happen all over our once glorious country. Anywhere we can enter and control municipal politics is a good place to execute the Regional Approach. The end goal will be to have all the disparate regions we control coalesce into a powerful political bloc of EuroCanadians that will protect our interests much like the Bloc Quebecois or the Assembly of First Nations.

La Crete’s successful use of municipal government to defy federal and provincial Covid mandates indicates that the Regional Approach can be effective for helping us maintain our values and culture while also giving us tools to grow politically as Canada’s demographic changes inevitably alter the country our ancestors built. Being realistic about the changes that Canada is going to experience in the coming decades and preparing accordingly is important work. How we can use municipal law, government and politics to protect the future of EuroCanadians in Canada is a subject that deserves more attention. The future is inevitable, we must take control.
