  1. Environmentalists claim that by opposing the Coastal GasLink pipeline, they are supporting local Indigenous people. They will never tell you that ALL of the elected band councils along the pipeline's route support the project.
  2. LOL…at what point does the Left think enough is enough? on top of the HUNDREDS of BILLIONS Canada has already given them free and clear…(but apparently they haven’t yet figured out how to have clean drinking water ) )… and now with Trudeau bending over yet again promising BILLIONS more of free $$$$ in the offing, it only makes sense to make the story seem as horrible as possible..so sorry NOT !!…in case you haven't heard Canada is BROKE. Time to move on from this BS. Canada pledges $31.5 billion to compensate indigenous children taken from families https://www.france24.com/en/americas/20220105-canada-pledges-31-5-billion-to-compensate-indigenous-children-taken-from-families
  3. Canada is reportedly China's least favourite country A recent survey making the rounds online purports to show that Canada has just become China’s least favourite country . Global Times – the English-language mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party – recently published a survey by its own in-house research centre showing that Canada now ranked last among Chinese peoples’ favourite countries. “Only 0.4 percent of respondents (said) they like the country,” it reported. The favourite country? Singapore. Typically, Canada gets the opposite treatment in foreign likeability rankings, often for the singular reason that we’re too inconsequential to generate all that many strong opinions. A regular tally by the Reputation Institute has repeatedly ranked Canada as the world’s most reputable nation. Last year, we also took the top spot in the Best Countries Report published by U.S. News & World Report. And we just got the title of most “reliable partner” among developed nations Meanwhile, Canadians’ feelings on the People’s Republic of China are mutual. A recent Research Co. poll found that 68 per cent of Canadian hold an unfavourable view of China, and that more than two thirds are actively trying to avoid “Made in China” products. In October, a Nanos poll found that 87 per cent of Canadians favoured joining with the U.S. (or anyone else) to “contain China’s growing power. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/first-reading-canada-is-reportedly-chinas-least-favourite-country

  5. The claim that 150,000 Indigenous children were forced to attend residential schools between 1883 and 1997 now routinely appears in the media, embellished by descriptions such as children “forcibly removed from their families” or “ripped from their parents’ arms.” Cree artist Kent Monkman depicted this fiction in his painting “The Scream” showing priests, nuns, and Mounties grabbing little Indian children from their terrified mothers. But how true are these incendiary claims? At best misleading, and at worst, false. If “forced to attend school” simply means compulsory school attendance that applies to all children, then the claim is misleading. School attendance, or its equivalent in homeschooling, is required of all Canadian children, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, as it is of children in all modern societies. Indeed, school attendance was not even required of Indian children until 1920, when an amendment to the Indian Act made them subject to the same compulsory attendance as all others had been. However, prior to 1920 Catholic and Protestant residential schools had operated in one form or another for more than half a century. Indigenous children attended those schools because their parents wanted them to attend. Education was seen as a benefit. Even after 1920, enforcement of attendance for Indian children was weak. As late as 1944, records show that upwards of 40% of Indian children went to no school at all. Typically, Indian parents who wanted their child to attend a residential school filled out an application which was forwarded to Ottawa for approval. Not all applications were accepted, as there was insufficient capacity for all children wishing to attend. In a similar vein, dissatisfied parents sometimes withdrew their children from the school. In 1922, for example, all parents in the community withdrew their children from the residential school at Kitimat and refused to allow them to return until the principal signed a paper affirming that the children would be “properly fed.” Children who were “forced to attend” were mainly child welfare cases. From 1920 to the 1960s, the main option for Indian children from orphaned or troubled homes who could not be taken in by extended family was an Indian agent’s discretionary placement of a child in a residential school. And increasingly, from the 1940s until the mid 1960s, Indian agents took children out of homes that the agent deemed to be inadequate or dangerous and placed them in residential schools. For example, the 1967 Caldwell Report notes that in some Saskatchewan residential schools as many as 80% of the students were there primarily for child welfare reasons. Those neglected children were indeed forcibly removed from their parents, just as some children today, both Indigenous and other, are removed from inadequate parenting for their own safety. But most Indian parents did not have those problems. They simply wanted their children to have the same education that other children received to help prepare them for modern life. Joe and Balazee Highway were an example of such parents. They lived on a northern Cree reserve, where poverty and death were far too common, and they knew that education offered the best chance for their children to escape that fate. They loaded their children onto a silver Norseman floatplane and sent them south to the Guy Hill Residential School, near The Pas, Manitoba. Nine years later their son—acclaimed playwright and writer Tomson Highway—graduated at the top of his class. In his new book Perpetual Astonishment (reviewed here by lawyer Peter Best,) Highway described the time he spent at residential school as “nine of the best years of my life.” As we know, not every student who entered a residential school had such a positive experience. There were negative experiences as well. But the positive experiences, like those of Tomson Highway, must be remembered if we are to have a balanced historical portrait. The picture of 150,000 students being “forced to attend” and “forcibly removed from their parents” is simply not accurate. Kent Monkman’s painting is a work of mythic imagination, and should not be mistaken for history. Brian Giesbrecht is a retired judge of the Provincial Court of Manitoba. Tom Flanagan is professor emeritus of political science at the University of Calgary.
  6. Trudeau’s vaccine mandate for truckers will be a disaster
  7. “ Canadian foreign investment spree hits record amid 'capital bleed' “ Canadians are shunning their domestic market and investing record amounts abroad, according to National Bank of Canada Financial Markets. Net purchases of overseas securities by locals soared to $144.4 billion (US$799 million) in the first 11 months of 2021 -- shattering a previous record of $73.3 billion set in 2006, the bank said, citing Statistics Canada. Canadians spent an all-time high of $81.8 billion on U.S. securities. “This is a big-time capital outflow, with Canadian investors taking exposure to foreign markets like never before,” National Bank chief rates and public sector strategist Warren Lovely wrote in a note Monday. “The apparent abandonment of Canada by domestic investors is part of an overall capital bleed that needs redressing.” https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/canada-foreign-investment-spree-hits-record-amid-capital-bleed-1.1708882 ******************** From the Globe and Mail “ Canadian investors flee domestic markets at unprecedented pace “

  10. Trudeau send troops…Putin shivers in his boots in response.
  11. Why is it Canada's 'duty' to destroy its economy and Confederation in the pursuit of net zero? I’ll go to the biggest one right off the bat: Why and how has the “goal” of getting to net-zero emissions become such a doctrine? Another way of phrasing the same question is: What’s so wrong, what’s so defective in our current energy system that the Liberal government has pledged, as its absolute priority, to replace it? Having a secure and tested energy system is a very big deal for any nation, but having a secure and tested energy supply is the quintessential necessity for a vast northern country — really vast — that is also the home of a wealthy, modern economy. A subsidiary question is: Does the government of a Confederation have the right, the legislative competence to declare the central industry of one of the provinces within that Confederation outmoded? And on that premise make it a The Liberals' obsession with global warming is the most absurd fixation of any government since Sir John A. set us up as a country. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex-murphy-why-is-it-canadas-duty-to-destroy-its-economy-and-confederation-in-the-pursuit-of-net-zero?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=NP Platformed newsletter 2022-01-20&utm_term=NP_Comments
  12. It’s all in the eye of the beholder. Do you automatically default to the worst case scenario like most “Progressives” do…or as I see them as…..” Regressives””… or do you look for the truth? “Our six-year-old handed us a note. His teacher had called my wife and I in for an emergency meeting. We asked our son if he had any idea why and he said, "She didn't like a drawing I did." We went in the next day. His teacher pulled the drawing below out and said, "I asked him to draw his familv and he drew this. Would vou mind explaining?" "Not at all." my wife said. "Family vacation. Snorkelling off the Bahamas.”
  13. Will be interesting to watch this unfold…part of me thinks they are on the right track as the Vaccine appears not to be working like they hoped. U.K. drops COVID-19 restrictions, scraps mandatory face masks British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the easing of COVID-19 restrictions on Wednesday, saying that face masks will no longer be mandatory in public places and schools in England and COVID-19 passports will be dropped in large parts of the country starting next Thursday.
  14. Love this guy..says it like it REALLY is…..Life under the TRUDEAU culture.. Jordan Peterson: Why I am no longer a tenured professor at the University of Toronto The appalling ideology of diversity, inclusion and equity is demolishing education and business “ First, my qualified and supremely trained heterosexual white male graduate students (and I’ve had many others, by the way) face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions, despite stellar scientific dossiers. This is partly because of Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity mandates (my preferred acronym: DIE). These have been imposed universally in academia, despite the fact that university hiring committees had already done everything reasonable for all the years of my career, and then some, to ensure that no qualified “minority” candidates were ever overlooked. My students are also partly unacceptable precisely because they are my students. I am academic persona non grata, because of my unacceptable philosophical positions. And this isn’t just some inconvenience. These facts rendered my job morally untenable. How can I accept prospective researchers and train them in good conscience knowing their employment prospects to be minimal?” Second reason: This is one of many issues of appalling ideology currently demolishing the universities and, downstream, the general culture. Not least because there simply is not enough qualified BIPOC people in the pipeline to meet diversity targets quickly enough (BIPOC: black, indigenous and people of colour, for those of you not in the knowing woke). This has been common knowledge among any remotely truthful academic who has served on a hiring committee for the last three decades. This means we’re out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job. And we’ve seen what that means already in the horrible grievance studies “disciplines.” That, combined with the death of objective testing, has compromised the universities so badly that it can hardly be overstated. And what happens in the universities eventually colours everything. As we have discovered. “Just exactly what am I supposed to do when I meet a graduate student or young professor, hired on DIE grounds? Manifest instant skepticism regarding their professional ability? What a slap in the face to a truly meritorious young outsider. And perhaps that’s the point. The DIE ideology is not friend to peace and tolerance. It is absolutely and completely the enemy of competence and justice.“ “ He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising. “ https://nationalpost.com/opinion/jordan-peterson-why-i-am-no-longer-a-tenured-professor-at-the-university-of-toronto
  15. The sickness spreads…Meet the “New” Canada under the Justin Trudeau Liberals.
