  2. Gun control isn't the issue here... propaganda techniques are. The gun control issue is a perfect example, nothing provides better proof of its existence or a better case study in the deployment and weaponization of state created propaganda and media cooperation. If you say the same thing over and over again, aided and abetted by cooperative media outlets, you can turn a simple semiautomatic rifle with a 5 round box magazine into a military assault rifle. Freeland defends Liberals' move to ban military-style assault guns The question they will never answer is on par with asking a greenie what they want cut to hit accord targets. How did a semi-automatic rifle (without selective fire) morph into an assault rifle and is there any military in the world who uses the AR-15 and a 5 round magazine as a issued battle rifle? We know the answer here... right? Those who disagree may be interested in the 15 year old 3/4 ton truck (regular cab) I have for sale. It's a bit pricy though because the racing stripes I added have morphed it into a Ferrari. It's now a Ferrari-style racing truck. Now, consider the headlines if this "racing truck" was purchased by a deranged individual and employed as a weapon at a Canada Day gathering. Would people support a ban on Ferrari-style racing trucks because they are the weapon of choice for evil doers? The only difference between the issues here is that a clear majority of people are familiar enough with pickup trucks to recognize the lie, see the absurdity in it and call BS. No amount of repetition, false equivalency or racing stripes is going to improve the 0-60 time of the truck, so in the ad I'll just describe the acceleration to be "as expected for a vehicle of this caliber." ( sorry, best I could do at a pun)

  3. Has politician Jagmeet Singh gone positively neo-fascist? The NDP Partyleader, who recently helped lock Justin Trudeau into office for three more years, believes Canadians should be forced to receive Covid vaccinations. As in– right now. “We absolutely believe that there needs to be mandatory vaccines.” As for non-compliant citizens, Mr. Singhrecommends these people be punished: “There would be consequences for those who are not able to or not willing to do that, and we can look at what those consequences are.” Ironic it is that Marina Glogovac, new CEO of uber-leftist Toronto Star, recently stated that she considers vaccine passports to be “akin to communism.” What a “progressive” political leader we have in Jagmeet Singh. Mandated vaccines are an affront to individual freedoms for Canadians. The concept flies in the face of our civil rights, in particular the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Jagmeet Singh doesn’t care. Like ideological siamese twin Justin Trudeau, the NDP leader only cares about what he personally believes to be true. The “vast majority of Canadians would support mandatory vaccines, at least for some sectors of society, and consequences for those who don’t comply with the order.” Canadians are in favour of medical fascism, are we? The degree to which Singh shares psychological traits not only with Justin Trudeau– but also Pierre Trudeau— is astounding. Presumption is one thing. When applied to these men, it progresses to the pathological.

  4. Coke vs Pepsi, JPEG vs RAW, creation vs evolution...these discussions never resolve. How about...has anyone got an example of what type of flying/mission where one type would do better than the other. For example, 737-200 gravel ops.

  5. Zero-emissions study leaves out North over modelling issues (cabinradio.ca) Zero-emissions study leaves out North over modelling issues Published: May 26, 2022 at 6:34amOLLIE WILLIAMS A major study by the David Suzuki Foundation that states “100-percent zero-emissions electricity is possible in Canada by 2035” left out the North as its model would not work there. A wind turbine. Patrick Finnegan/Flickr The foundation’s report – Shifting Power: Zero-Emissions Electricity Across Canada by 2035 – was published on Wednesday. Using mostly wind or solar power in a decade’s time is possible, affordable and would be reliable, the report asserts. Reaching a net-zero electricity grid by 2035 has been a stated goal of the federal government since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced it at the COP26 climate conference. The David Suzuki Foundation report is one of the first to contemplate in detail how that might be achieved. However, both the federal target and this week’s report dance around a problem: the North. The federal target’s wording refers to “achieving a net-zero electricity grid,” a phrase that could be taken to leave out the NWT, which isn’t on the Canada-wide grid, has no real grid of its own and, in many communities, relies heavily on diesel generation. As for the report, while its title and many of its statements suggest the entirety of Canada is being considered, no northern territory is mentioned once in its 78 pages. Stephen Thomas, who authored the report alongside Tom Green, acknowledged the targets stated in the report exclude the territories – though Thomas did say he believed “nearly-zero emissions electricity by 2035 is also possible in the North.” Thomas said the report focused only on the 10 southern provinces “because that’s what our model could do.” “We use an electricity system model that is really good at digging into what’s happening in the electricity system across thousands of grid points, across Canada. But that only models the connected grid between the 10 provinces south of 60,” he told Cabin Radio. “That’s not at all to say that the energy transition, energy sovereignty, and specific solutions to these problems aren’t absolutely crucial in the North as well. We just think that’s a different problem to solve.” The foundation is not planning any separate report on northern Canadian electricity generation. Thomas said “others already are doing great work in thinking about and addressing the energy transition in the North … We partner with others and support their work, but we don’t have plans to do a similar report.” Target requires huge shift to wind Even in the south, the foundation declared, “the scale of transformation is daunting” to reach zero-emissions electricity across 10 provinces in 13 years’ time. “It would require an average annual build-out of wind and solar electricity projects never before seen in Canada,” the foundation stated, including a graph that shows wind generation multiplying by 10 – from 13,000 MW in 2018 to 135,000 MW in 2035 – to meet that target. A Flourish chart “An average of more than 2,200 new four-MW wind turbines would be installed every year and more than 160 new 10-MW solar farms would be built each year,” the foundation imagines in its preferred solution to Canada’s energy needs. (The NWT presently has one wind farm of note, at the Diavik diamond mine, and is in the process of erecting one wind turbine near Inuvik.) That kind of national shift would require building new wind and solar projects at five times Canada’s previous record rate, the report asserted. But the foundation argues countries like Germany are already planning to add renewable power at “an equivalent rate” to that contemplated in its report. “By 2025, the country expects to be adding 10 GW of wind annually, similar to what our modelling scenarios would require,” the foundation said of Germany. The boldest scenario presented in the report is estimated to save 200 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually across Canada – a thousand times the current NWT reduction target. “By 2035, we’re the first study in Canada to show that kind of target being possible,” said Thomas of the zero-emissions electricity goal. “Wind and solar are very available in Canada and they are the cheapest form of electricity. That, you can put on the grid today. Paired with the existing hydroelectricity, things like energy storage, energy efficiency, and more transmission between provinces come together to make a reliable and affordable electricity system. “We think this pathway is very possible.” The study is not exhaustive and is not presented as such. For example, offshore wind, green hydrogen, and the interplay between Canadian and US energy grids are either not modelled at all or included in rudimentary fashion. The territories aren’t the only areas ignored: any remote grid not connected to the broader Canadian grid is considered “out of scope.” The cost? $560 billion to pursue the boldest option, the foundation stated. That’s the equivalent of around 500 Taltson hydro expansions, from an NWT point of view, and the federal government has yet to find the cash for even one – though it says it’s close. Another way to look at it: the federal government expects to have an income of around $409 billion in 2022-23, so this switch would cost much more than an entire year of federal revenue. But that kind of transformative shift in investment is what’s required, the foundation and others argue, in the face of a climate crisis. Eventually, the foundation suggests, 75,000 or more clean-energy jobs would be created to replace jobs in industries that are phased out. “The federal government needs to be very clear on how this rolls out, to get to zero emissions by 2035,” Thomas said. “In terms of making this a reality in Canada,” he said, “it’s about jobs. It’s about investment in the renewable electricity sector, and it’s about policymakers coming together and collaborating.”

  7. And Marco Mendocino will be full of misinformation and lies as he brings in more restrictions on handguns using the Texas shootings as a pretence to “keep Canadians safe”…Quebec is on board, and with the backing of the NDP, and the bloc to support the libs. Ford has said he is not interested in more laws against law abiding citizens….just get tough on criminals. We’ll see but I’m not optimistic. Meanwhile, the gangs and druggies will still carry as a sign of power and the shootings will continue.

  8. Quote of the day: “Doug Ford doesn’t seem to care and is fighting to keep handguns legal,” Del Duca said in a statement. “He has stated multiple times that he opposes a handgun ban, even as handgun-related crimes spike in his own backyard. These brazen attacks are escalating and endangering the lives of families across Ontario — and the fear needs to end.” Instead of foolish statements, why not a side by side analysis of "handgun related crimes" perpetrated by gang members as compared to licensed IPSC Black Badge holders with registered firearms over the last 5 years.... that might be instructive for the voters who believe his nonsense. Here's Toronto's "current" most wanted list (from the police service website) that are shooting related. How many duck hunters from PEI do you suppose are in the group? And how many of these folks do you suppose are RPAL holders with registered handguns and permits to carry?

  11. The reason nothing has been dug up is that if they do dig, and the findings are not as implied, the money truck drives away. I find it amazing they can recall their oral history for thousands of years, but they can't remember if they sent a child to school, and they didn't come home.

  14. “A month after authorities called off the search, family members of one of the pilots of an aircraft that went missing in Ontario have found the wreckage. Brian Slingerland’s family chartered a plane and spent most of last Saturday searching an area near the last known position of the Piper Comanche Slingerland and his friend John Fehr had recently purchased and were ferrying back to their homes in Alberta, more than 1,500 miles west. They found the wreckage less than five miles from the point of last radar contact of the plane in Lake Superior Provincial Park. The duo took off from Dehli, Ontario, about 100 miles west of Buffalo, New York, to Marathon, Ontario, about 100 miles north of Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, on April 14. After the plane disappeared, searchers flew about 350 hours trying to find the plane but the search was called off April 24. Authorities say they don’t know what the family did that the searchers didn’t to find the wreckage. “I’m not sure what tactics they were employing,” Ontario Provincial Police detective Trevor Tremblay told local media. “But they found the aircraft about seven kilometres from the last known point on radar.”

  15. The prevalence of this lunacy in universities (where counter opinions are banned) effects an entire generation. It could very well have political effects up until the point when students convert knowledge to wisdom. If young soldiers are any metric, that takes experience and time. In the meantime though, are black people who own "property" in the form of businesses racist? And, by extension, how about their patrons, clients and customers, are they racist too? More to the point, why isn't the media asking the questions you and I would ask if we had the opportunity to ask them? Boston University professor says property is racist, excuses Black Lives Matter riots after George Floyd death
