  1. It’s a good thing the police nabbed Tamara Lich and got her off the streets. After all….We can’t have dangerous people like her taking photographs with other dangerous people and posting them online.
  2. Literally laughing at Canadians all the way to the bank! Will it EVER be enough ?
  3. In the past 10 years I have had a father in law, a mother in law and a mother die. One was with maid, the other two were through natural causes. I did not witness the maid procedure but I was there almost daily for the 2 months previous to it and their commitment never wavered once. From the the recollection of someone present, they passed away with a content look on their face. I can definitely say from my experience I would pick MAID hands down. If given the opportunity that’s the route I will take. I guess right now that’s an easy position to take as it’s not staring me in the face, but if my choices are lying in bed suffering for months on end waiting for the walls to close in, verses quietly going to sleep before the inevitable **bleep** hits the fan, I don’t think there will be much problem making that decision. As for cases of the mentally unstable being offered MAID, at first thought I’m against it because another human being is making the life or death decision over another human. In some circles of thought that would be defined as murder. The guy writing this article hasn’t even witnessed a MAID procedure, yet he is full of critiques and questions about it. He would have a lot more credibility if his objections were backed up by experience rather than arm chair quarterbacking the subject. “ Zivot, who has never performed or witnessed MAID himself, is dead wrong, that his assumptions aren’t anchored in any published evidence and that it’s irresponsible to extrapolate findings from the autopsies of executed prisoners and claim they could be seen in the context of MAID.”

  6. Found this little gem… Sharing from a Montréal Lead Ramp Agent. The struggle is real…if you have to travel, give yourself a few extra days…and if you don’t “need” to travel…stay home!!! "I just got home at 6am after a 14h day including 6h of overtime. I struggle to convey in words how much chaos there is at the airport right now. 1. Last night I saw SFO passengers crawling through the carousel to retrieve their bags ... from a secured customs area ... because they've been waiting 4 hours for them. 2. I saw FAs walk off flights because the pilots were flying illegally after timing out, and the FAs didn't feel safe because they knew how tired the pilots were. 3. I saw Delhi leave with 100 missing meals and STOC said send it anyway. 4. I saw a handicapped person with no legs crawl out of a plane himself because there was no wheelchair crew. 5. We've now reached 2019 peak rush times but with only 800 ground crew staff, compared to 1200 in 2019 (and we were barely making it then) 6. I've seen dogs being left in the bulk of a cancelled flight for 2 hours. 7. One guy on my crew today almost walked into a live engine because he was new. With only 5 weeks training, he had forgot ¾ of it cause it's so condensed. The higher ups in Toronto want to make that training 5 days instead of 5 weeks. 8. We no longer wait for passengers to connect. I dispatched FRA the other day with 50 missing passengers and STOC didn't want to wait. We don't wait anymore cause it delays all the flights in the gate moving forward. So we fly with whoever is onboard. From the bottom of my heart, tell your loved ones not to fly now. Regardless if they bring a bag or not. I saw the proposed schedule over the next year and a half and it's enough to keep me up at night. Anyway, for those of you travelling anyway... stay safe. Bring food and water with you. Don't ever check a bag. And if you do fly, don't connect. You'll miss it 100%. Rant over. I'm exhausted and going to sleep cuz I I only get 7.5h rest between shifts."
  7. Watch the blatant body language of Joly during this news conference. Pretty sure Sophie will not be impressed https://globalnews.ca/news/8958186/canada-military-aid-ukraine/
  8. If you are time limited, start around the 11 minute mark……

  10. Under Trudeau, soo Re than you think, Canadians will be the only people in the world being penalized just because they exist. Supreme Court reins in Biden's power on climate change The Supreme Court on Thursday imposed major constraints on the breadth of EPA's authority to limit carbon emissions from power plants. Why it matters: The 6-3 ruling in West Virginia v. EPA will likely make it harder for the Biden administration to meet its climate targets — and may tie the hands of future administrations that want to take aggressive action on climate change. Driving the news: The court said EPA lacks wide latitude under the current Clean Air Act to force changes in the country's power mix that speed movement toward zero-carbon tech. "Congress did not grant EPA in Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act the authority to devise emissions caps based on the generation shifting approach the Agency took in the Clean Power Plan," the conservative majority wrote in West Virginia v. EPA. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion, joined by justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. The three liberal justices, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Stephen Breyer, dissented. The decision follows a major scientific report on the fast-closing window to prevent some of the most dangerous effects of global warming, which is already causing substantial harm. The big picture: The new limits on executive power come as President Biden's huge clean energy investment package has stalled in Congress. That puts a heavier burden on the federal agencies to cut planet-warming emissions with existing authorities, which now face new constraints. The administration's climate goals include a 50% cut in economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and a fully decarbonized electricity sector by 2035. Power plants are the second-largest source of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The administration is in the process of writing regulations for these facilities. Catch up fast: The case stems from lower court battles over Obama-era rules to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, and a more modest Trump-era replacement. Neither regulation is in effect. But last year, GOP-led states and coal companies successfullypetitioned the court to hear cases on the scope of EPA's power. What we're watching: How EPA will seek to cut emissions from coal-fired power plants in light of the ruling. In March, EPA Administrator Michael Regan said the agency's plans include indirectly tackling CO2 with rules that target air and water pollution. https://www.axios.com/2022/06/30/west-virginia-epa-supreme-court-climate-change?stream=top&utm_source=alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=alerts_all
  11. For the head line skimmers …check the date on the article. Trudeau reverses course, drops carbon tax as of April 1 A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office obtained in advance exclusively by the Sun reveals that inflation and the cost-of-living is what spurred Trudeau’s change of heart. “I just can’t do it,” said Trudeau. “It’s become clear that an increase in the carbon tax at this point in time would only add to the hardships faced by Canadians who are already struggling to pay the bills.” The change comes into effect immediately. Trudeau also explained that his policy reversal is “a teachable moment for all Canadians and an opportunity for reflection.” A source speaking on background revealed that Trudeau went out to buy his own groceries on Thursday night for the first time in years and was flabbergasted by the price of goods. “He only took a $10 bill because he figured it would be enough for a block of marble cheese, but after tax he just didn’t have enough on him,” the source explained. A bystander reportedly offered to buy the cheese for the PM upon seeing his struggles at the cash register. It’s unknown if Trudeau accepted the stranger’s money. The carbon tax reversal comes after Alberta Premier Jason Kenney decided his province would temporarily stop collecting the provincial gas tax, which adds 13 cents per litre to the price of gas. While the Liberals had previously touted that the federal carbon tax would be revenue neutral, a new report from the Parliamentary Budget Officer reveals that the majority of Canadians will now pay more in carbon taxes than they receive back in the form of rebates. It remains unclear whether the elimination of the carbon tax is a temporary or permanent measure, but based on the publication date of this story we recommend you don’t let yourself be fooled. EDITORIAL: Carbon tax increase is sadly no joke We’d prefer to think that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s April 1 carbon tax increase is just a cruel April Fool’s Day joke. But, alas, Trudeau’s carbon tax increased by 25% to $50 per tonne of greenhouse gas emissions on Friday, up from $40. These increases have happened every year on April 1 since 2019, when the tax was introduced at $20 per tonne of emissions, and will continue to rise annually up to $170 per tonne in 2030. For families living in the four provinces where Trudeau imposed his carbon tax — Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba — gasoline prices because of the federal carbon tax will rise by 2.2 cents per litre to 11 cents per litre, on its way to 37.4 cents per litre in 2030. https://torontosun.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-carbon-tax-april-fools
