  1. 2 1/2 hr documentary if you are so inclined. Information purposes only. I do not endorse either way. Our planet is actually colder than previous eras when life already existed, and, believe it or not, carbon dioxide does not have any clear correlation with global temperature growth. Examining climate fluctuations and natural dynamics from over 12,000 or 50,000 years appears to discredit the arguments of climate-change alarmists and the assertion of man-made global warming. The documentary The Environment: A True Story invites us to rethink global warming and to question what the media and some influential actors say about it. Produced by Canadian history professor John Robson, the film presents historical evidence and comments from climate scientists, such as climatologist Richard Keen from the University of Colorado, Boulder, to demonstrate that “alarmism is not a good science.” Robson, who describes himself as a passionate environmentalist, demonstrates in two hours and 40 minutes that the Earth's climate has always fluctuated. It is, therefore, derelict to blame humans for something that already happened when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. It is even worse to study global warming with computer models originally designed to predict natural phenomenon that have, at most, only 150 years of recorded data. Robson claims that a historical overview of the geographical and weather conditions of the planet is enough to shake up the commonly accepted belief in man-made global warming. The interviewed specialists explain that the Earth passes through cycles of big ice ages and big melts. The Holocene epoch — the period since the last ice age — began 12,000 years back and has permitted human life, but it is actually an interglacial stage. Now the Earth is approaching the next big melt, and that explains some rising temperatures in recent years. Robson suggests another key line of reasoning: the natural processes of the Earth recycle and reuse almost everything, including carbon dioxide. CO2 emissions are not as harmful as alarmists argue, and their presence “does not explain the climate variability” to the degree that sun activity does. In other words, the magnetic field of the sun alters the physical dynamics of the Earth, particularly those related to the water cycle. Therefore, the climate scientists presented argue that water vapor is instead the most important greenhouse gas when it comes to global temperature change. Despite the film's long duration of almost three hours, it addresses specific topics in brief scenes and presents consistent evidence against the analyses that favor man-made global warming. Robson finally recommends that decision-makers, who are wrongly basingtheir policies on alarmist analyses, stop wasting money and time on trying to solve a natural event and deal instead with real threats, such as withdrawing plastic from the oceans and taking conscious care of “our only home,” the Earth. https://www.aier.org/blog/canadian-documentary-pokes-holes-global-warming-mantra

  3. Meet Catherine McKenna’s new job-creation plan: Endless costly climate rules New clean fuel regulations are coming to Canada “in the coming months,” federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna announced earlier this month. She says the policy — titled the Clean Fuel Standard — is “a really important piece of our climate plan” and an “economic opportunity” for Canada. The idea behind the plan, which will require fuel producers to reduce the carbon intensity of their products, is being cheered on by Clean Energy Canada, an organization launched by Tides Canada in 2010 and now connected to Simon Fraser University. According to a recent report from Clean Energy Canada, more federal fuel regulations would be an economic boon for the country. It argues that additional regulations “would increase economic activity in clean fuels in Canada by up to $5.6-billion a year in 2030” and create as many as 31,000 new jobs. Even after accounting for the negative effects of the regulations in other sectors, it is claimed, there will still be a large positive net effect on the economy and employment. http://www.affordableenergy.ca/meet_catherine_mckenna_s_new_job_creation_plan_endless_costly_climate_rules

  5. Sorry... classic case of thread drift
  6. Consider yourself fortunate then, as that’s not the case everywhere. I know of a case where an elderly lady had to spend close to 3 days on a stretcher in a hallway in emerg because there were no beds available in the hospital. To be more accurate, Ontario doesn’t have a hospital space problem, it has a hospital funding problem. Entire wards are left empty because the Liberal government withholds funding for beds. A hospital could have 300 beds but if they are only funded for say 250, the other 50 remain empty. Meanwhile in the same hospitals, emergency departments have every possible sq’ of hall space littered with patients on stretchers. Another huge problem that is downloaded on to hospitals is the extreme lack of affordable space in nursing homes. Entire wards are filled to the brims with elderly people who are basically well enough to leave but have no place to go. The Liberal Wynne government thinks it’s smart to shell out $1100 per day = $33,000/mth = $396,000/yr for acute care beds in hospitals rather than provide nursing home facilities for a mere fraction of that cost.

    Liberal “Results”: The Real Tracker Modest” Deficits Broken Promise In 2015, Justin Trudeau promised “modest” deficits of “only” $10 billion per year. ● He immediately broke that promise in his first budget. ● In 2017, the annual deficit now sits at $17.8 billion, 80% higher than their initial projections. ● The Liberal government is now projecting that by 2018 those deficits will reach $19.9 billion. ● Trudeau has been quoted saying “the budget will balance itself” which shows the Liberals have no plan to balance the budget, only to keep spending hard-working Canadians’ tax dollars. ● The Liberals, facing ever mounting deficits of their own creation, are now planning more ways to tax Canadians. ● Trudeau doesn’t have a revenue problem, he has a spending problem and he is sticking Canadian families with the bill! Additional Info Additional Info Transparency Broken Promise ● Justin Trudeau promised he would set a new standard of “openness” and “transparency” for his government. This has turned out to be a completely empty commitment. ● Trudeau’s proposed changes to the Access to Information Act (Bill C-58) have been widely panned. In fact, the Information Commissioner said they were a “regression of existing rights” and that she would “much prefer to keep the status quo”. ● On multiple occasions Trudeau’s government have tried to force through changes in the House of Commons that would make it harder to hold them to account. Only unified resistance has protected Canada’s democracy from the worst of these changes… so far. ● Trudeau’s Finance Minister, Bill Morneau, broke the ethics rules when he: ○ Failed to report an offshore company he set up in France to give himself a tax advantage; ○ Didn’t put his millions of dollars of shares he had in a private pension company in a blind trust even after he said he would; then ○ Introduced pension legislation that could profit those same shares! ● It came as no surprise then, that the Liberals have suddenly changed their tune on their Cabinet Ministers’ ethical obligations. ● Canadians expect honesty and integrity from their government, but what they have now is a hypocritical and entitled Liberal government with a pattern of deception. Additional Info Additional Info Additional Info Additional Info Additional Info Additional Info Small Business taxes Partial credit ● Justin Trudeau first said he’d honour the Conservative commitment of a tax break for small businesses – lowering it from 11% to 9%. ● The Liberals broke that promise in 2016, and reversed the planned Conservative cut. ● Only now, a year later, and only after months of criticism and lobbying from the Conservative Party, is Justin Trudeau flip-flopping once again, and re-committing to the Conservative small business tax cut. ● He is doing this now to change the channel from his other massive tax increases. ● You cannot trust Justin Trudeau to give you a tax break. When Justin Trudeau promises he won’t raise taxes – just don’t believe him. Additional Info Electoral Reform Broken Promise ● In 2015, Justin Trudeau promised Canadians that he would implement electoral reform. ● He confidently declared that “the 2015 election will be the last federal election using first-past-the-post”. ● After a six-month consultation process on electoral reform, the all-party committee, which consulted broadly with Canadians from across the country, advised the Liberal government that any change to Canada’s voting system should be put to a referendum. ● The Liberals, after not getting their desired result, claimed that the committee recommendations were “too radical”, and “racing toward a predetermined deadline”. ● The Liberals then completely abandoned their commitment, announcing that electoral reform will no longer be in their mandate. Additional Info Middle Class Broken Promise ● Trudeau promised to give middle class Canadians a tax break and make the tax system “more fair”. ● But according to the Fraser Institute, after two years of Liberal rule, 81% of middle-class families are paying more tax under the Liberals! ● It’s easy to see how: ○ First, the Liberals eliminated the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit, the Children’s Art Tax Credit, tax credits for post-secondary education and textbooks, and income splitting for families; ○ Then they cancelled the planned small business tax reductions, EI tax reductions, and increased payroll taxes; ○ They also introduced a federal carbon tax, which is a massive job killing tax on everything; ○ The Liberals cut TFSA contributions by half, ended the Public Transit tax credit, added a new tax on Uber and raised taxes on beer, wine, and spirits; ○ Then they tried to tax health and dental benefits, and employee discounts; and ○ Now they are raising taxes on disabled Canadians by denying Disability Tax Credits. ● Not only is Trudeau taking money from hard-working Canadians, he is also running massive deficits, with no plan to ever balance the budget. Canadian families are hurting because of the policies of the Trudeau government. Additional Info Defence Spending Broken Promise ● The Liberal government promised to maintain the previous Conservative Government’s National Defence spending levels, including current planned increases. ● They immediately broke that promise. ● With their first two budgets the Liberals cut billions from capital project funding starting in 2016. In an era of reckless Liberal spending, it is appalling that the largest cuts are consistently at the expense of the Canadian Armed Forces. ● They have again promised additional funding, but – surprise surprise – that funding will not be made available until AFTER the next election. ● Canadian Armed Forces members who are injured in the line of duty are seeing their benefits and allowances significantly cut. These changes could cost individual members and their families more than $23,000 per year. Additional Info Training Broken Promise ● The Liberals promised an additional $775 million per year for job and skills training. ● They proudly touted this as a measure to help Canadians get the training they need to find and keep good jobs. ● But the Liberals have only added a fraction of that, and far below the promised amount. Additonal Info Canadian Energy Broken Promise ● The Liberals promised to balance economic and environmental interests ● After spending a BILLION dollars ensuring the project met strict environmental standards, TransCanada Corp was forced to pull the plug on the Energy East project after encountering Justin Trudeau’s needless red tape. ● The sudden inclusion of upstream and downstream emissions created an impossible regulatory process for the pipeline and gave TransCanada no choice but to cancel the pipeline. ● Justin Trudeau’s job-killing policies created too many unnecessary complications and killed the project. Additional Info Additional Info Infrastructure Broken Promise ● During the 2015 election, the Liberals promised an increase of $125-billion in infrastructure spending over 10 years. ● So far, Infrastructure Canada’s website shows that there is $20.5 billion left unspent across 13 programs. ● Concerns have been raised by cities that they don’t have enough time to spend their transit and water money. Additonal Info Free Votes Broken Promise ● The Liberals promised that for members of the Liberal Caucus, all votes will be free votes with the exception of: ○ Those that implement the Liberal electoral platform; ○ Traditional confidence matters, like the budget; and ○ Those that address our shared values and the protections guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. ● This promise was clearly broken when Liberal Caucus member, MP Wayne Long, was punished for voting against the government on a motion that would have extended the consultation process for the Liberal’s small businesses tax hikes. ● Long was kicked off of two parliamentary committees for supporting the opposition motion. Additional Info Fair treatment of veterans Broken Promise ● The Liberals promised that they will demonstrate the respect and appreciation for our veterans that Canadians rightly expect, and ensure that no veteran has to fight the government for the support and compensation they have earned. ● Trudeau is now taking veterans back to court to attempt to block certain benefits for injured and wounded veterans. ● Canadian Armed Forces members who are injured in the line of duty are seeing their benefits and allowances significantly cut. These changes could cost individual members and their families more than $23,000 per year. ● Justin Trudeau should be doing everything in his power to support our troops who put themselves in harm’s way to defend our country, yet he chooses instead to cut their pay and benefits.

    First Mexico, then the Philippines..now Australia...The Kodak Kid’s having quite the month! Australian official lashes out at Trudeau amid spat over Pacific trade deal Official 'gobsmacked' by Trudeau's move to skip meeting of national leaders, Australian media reports ” A spat between Canada and Australia is heating up as Australian officials signal they will block Canada's admission to Asia's premier security forum, the East Asia Summit, amid tensions over the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. An Australian news report suggests that country's leadership has already rejected Canada's application to participate in the key forum because Australian trade officials were "gobsmacked" by Canada's behaviour on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Forum (APEC) last week in Vietnam. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau skipped a planned meeting with the 10 other leaders of TPP countries while in Danang because he said Canada simply was not ready to sign a deal that is not yet in the best interest of Canadians. Liberal government officials have refuted international reports — notably from Australian and New Zealand news outlets — that suggested Canada alone was to blame for "screwed" TPP talks.” http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/australia-trudeau-tpp-spat-1.4407531
  12. “ The Trudeau government’s plan to bring in close to one million new immigrants within the next three years should be of serious concern to Canadians. Next year alone, the numbers are expected to reach 310,000 but to that total must be added approximately 900,000 temporary foreign workers and foreign students who will be living in Canada. Since most of the newcomers will be settling in three of our major cities, the pressure on infrastructure and local services will be extreme. Canada’s current immigration policy is based on myths. All of our political parties, most of the news media, big business interests, the banks and land developers favour large-scale immigration and justify this on the grounds that immigration helps our economy, strengthens the labour force and alleviates our aging problem. In fact, only about 15 to 17 per cent of the annual flow consists of immigrants selected because they have skills, education and experience. Because of the pressure to get high numbers, few of these workers are seen or interviewed by visa officers. The selection is done by a paper review. The remainder of the movement is made up of the spouses and children accompanying the workers, family members sponsored by relatives in Canada, immigrants selected by the provinces (who do not have to meet federal selection criteria ), refugees and humanitarian cases. The truth is that the government has lost control of the immigration program by abandoning its traditional role of selecting our immigrants and controlling their numbers. Canadians have been brainwashed into believing we are doomed if we don’t keep immigration levels high. We are also told that our immigration policies are acknowledged to be the envy of the world. These arguments are wrong. There is no evidence that immigration is essential for economic growth. The 1985 MacDonald Royal Commission Report concluded that immigration did not contribute to economic growth and, in fact, caused a decline in per capita income and real wages. In 1989, a two-year study by the Department of Health and Welfare supported the MacDonald report and stated there was no argument for increased population growth and that immigration was not the answer to the aging of the population. In 1991, the Economic Council of Canada reached the same concLesion A more recent study by Prof. Herbert Grubel of Simon Fraser University and economist Patrick Grady found that in the year 2002 alone, the costs in services and benefits received by the 2.5 million immigrants between 1990 and 2002 exceeded the taxes paid by these immigrants by $23 billion. It is not surprising that this study has received little media coverage in Canada. Studies outside of Canada have come to the same conclusion about the economic value of immigration. In Britain, a report by the House of Lords in 2008 warned that the government’s plan to admit 190,000 immigrants per year would achieve little benefit and would seriously affect the availability of housing and the quality of public services. The report also criticized the government for misleading the people by justifying immigration levels when they provided no economic benefit, were not needed to fill labour shortages and did not help the state’s pension fund. Perhaps the most insidious argument still being advanced by government and other advocates of mass immigration is the belief that we need immigration to provide the workers needed to replace our aging population. This argument is obviously flawed if, as in Canada, the immigration movement has a similar age structure as the receiving country; then, immigration does not help the aging problem – indeed it may well exacerbate it. In 2009, a study by the C.D. Howe Institute found that to offset our declining birth rate and maintain the ratio of five taxpayers to support the benefits of one pensioner until 2050, our immigration levels would have to reach 165.4 million. And in that single year, 2050, the annual movement would have to be seven million immigrants. The study recommended that raising the retirement age to 67 would be much more effective. Sadly, we have allowed our political parties to use and exploit immigration for political purposes – with all parties competing for the ethnic vote by calling for increasing numbers. This is a cynical approach, patronizing to immigrants and damaging to the country. It is time for comprehensive reform.
