Filipina cult leader ‘Queen of Canada’ tries to take over small towns
A Filipino woman QAnon-inspired cult leader who claims to be the “Queen of Canada” was forced out of Kamsack, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Wednesday, Sept. 13, but then moved with her followers to another town where residents are trying to drive them away.
Romana Didulo and her convoy of two dozen followers were escorted out of Kamsack by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), but they moved into Richmound, a village of some 150 people in southwestern Saskatchewan, and took over an unused school.
Soon after their arrival, some 100 local residents drove to the school on Sunday in tractors, semi-trucks, and other vehicles, trying to drive them out.
Didulo and her followers travel through small towns in Canada in an RV and vehicles with purple banners and signs. She has declared herself the “Queen of Canada,” among other titles including the national Indigenous leader.
Her group on Sept. 12 had pulled into Kamsack, a town of some 1,800 people, telling the mayor and some residents that they were taking charge because “God gave us this land.”
“They were told, ‘No, you’re not in charge.’ I am the mayor. This is my town, I’m in charge. First Nations people said, ‘You are not our chief. You are not the chief of Canada. We do not recognize you in any way, shape or form,'” CBC News reported.
RCMP said no law had been violated and escorted the cultists out of Kamsack. Shortly after, Didulo’s group occupied an empty school in Richmound whose residents are trying to drive them out.
The Canadian Anti-Hate Network has been monitoring Didulo after getting reports of people delivering “cease and desist” notices to various agencies, on Didulo’s order, threatening to “shoot to kill” anyone who administers vaccines to children.
Didulo, 48, emigrated from the Philippines to Canada as a teenager. She later set up a fringe QAnon-endorsed political party in 2020, drawing followers. She claimed to have overthrown Canada’s government and that her title “Queen of Canada” is backed by secret US military interests.
She issued “decrees” absolving her followers from bills and debts. Consequently, followers started losing their homes, utility services, and cars.
The cult spreads anti-vaccination conspiracies, and the QAnon theory that says former US President Donald Trump is waging a secret war against elite Satan-worshipping pedophiles in government, business, and the media.
