  1. Critical' propane shortage in Quebec forces companies to ration supplies Propane shortages in Quebec sparked by rail blockades is forcing companies to ration supplies to hospitals, farms and buildings, according to local businesses. Jean-François Bergeron, general manager of Quebec City propane supplier Capital Propane, said the company is left with a seven-day propane supply, and it’s running out of solutions. “There are none, there are no other options for us,” he said. Capital Propane provides the fuel for hospitals, agriculture and residential areas, and right now it’s rationing supplies and is prioritizing propane supplies to farms, Bergeron said. Its last shipment of propane came in on Monday by truck from Sarnia, Ont., but Bergeron said there aren’t enough trucks left for their next shipment. Compared to the Canadian National Railway Co. workers’ strikes in November, which resulted in rail transport being suspended for a week, Bergeron said this situation is “much worse. https://business.financialpost.com/news/economy/critical-propane-shortage-in-quebec-forces-companies-to-ration-supplies?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook#Echobox=1582237283

  3. A good visualization of why this virus, or the next one, or next one could be disastrous to the world.
  4. Who checks the fact checkers? “ Fact checkers also often "check" opinions, rather than factual claims, even though two people can form diametrically opposed opinions based on the same facts. Worse, many media "fact checks" use other media sources to check facts, apparently forgetting that journalists get their facts wrong almost as often as politicians. (Take a look at the list of corrections on any given day in The New York Times.) On top of this are legitimate complaints of political bias among fact checkers, who often seem to spend most of their time trying to debunk claims made by conservatives rather than liberals.“ https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/fact-checkers-big-media/
  5. That’s almost as bad as his Beaverton references.
  6. This year Ottawa will spend more on federal interest payments than on employment insurance benefits VANCOUVER—In fiscal year 2019-20, Ottawa will spend more than $24 billion on federal interest payments, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank. “Since the 2008-09 recession, the federal debt has increased by more than $260 billion, and taxpayers are on the hook for the increased interest costs,” said Jake Fuss, Fraser Institute economist and coauthor of Interest Costs and their Growing Burden on Canadians. For example, this year the federal government will spend a projected $24.4 billion on interest payments on the federal debt—considerably more than Ottawa expects to spend on employment insurance benefits ($19.3 billion). And more than this year’s projection for the Canada Child Benefit ($24.1 billion), a monthly payment made to eligible families with children. Consequently, interest costs on the federal debt will consume 7.2 per cent of federal revenues in 2019-20, despite historically low interest rates. Put differently, federal interest costs will equal $649 per Canadian. And of course, taxpayers pay interest costs on provincial government debt and their province’s portion of the federal debt. On a per-person basis, the combined federal and provincial interest costs range from a high of $3,343 in Newfoundland & Labrador to a low of $1,156 in British Columbia. “In their upcoming budgets, the federal and provincial governments can address these interest costs by ensuring balanced budgets by better controlling government spending,” Fuss said.
  7. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Bernie Sanders socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all). After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that. (Please pass this on) These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
  8. Because the official opposition criticized our man child Justin Trudeau, he proceeded to have a hissy fit and denied Scheer the opportunity to participate in a meeting on the blockades. All the other party leaders were invited. https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/trudeau-on-the-blockades-we-need-to-find-a-solution-and-we-need-to-find-it-now
  9. Rex Murphy: This is the outcome of Justin Trudeau's disastrous sloganeering ( Much like Don Cherry, I wonder how much longer Rex will remain a CBC broadcaster) “ words from this government are like fairground balloons: they float upwards because they are so light. If there were a carbon tax on platitudes, this government would be broke. “ This government has been content to drift on the expression of fine sentiments, to earn the lazy applause that comes from saying the right things — such as on climate change and now on Aboriginal discontent. These two issued are now intertwined. Opposition to a pipeline is the flash point of a crisis that’s expanding outward to engulf the whole country. And as the blockades swell and continue, discontent in the Western provinces grows. There are two great winds astir in Canada, and it will take far more than slogans to calm them. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex-murphy-this-is-the-outcome-of-justin-trudeaus-disastrous-sloganeering?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook#Echobox=1582055877
