  1. “ Statistics Canada recently updated their report on average salaries across the country, and it seems we’re taking home a little more than we were in 2016. The average salary for Canadian employees has been steadily increasing since 2013. As of September 2017, the average wage for Canadian employees was $986 a week – or just over $51,000 a year. This represents a 3.1% increase over the same period last year. https://careers.workopolis.com/advice/how-much-money-are-we-earning-the-average-canadian-wages-right-now/ **************I*I*I*I***********I*I* Canadians Believe The Average Salary They Need For 'Comfort' Is $250,000 Canadian expectations verses reality.....I guess that “ average “ Canadian will have to raise their input level to their expectations level...oh yeah that’s right...that would encompass hard work so let’s just take it from the people who actually worked their ass off, took chances, started a company probably working 80 hours a week to be successful only to have the Lefties of the world want to take it away from them.

  2. B.C. tricked Canadian politicians into believing its carbon tax policy works. It doesn't 'Revenue neutral' carbon tax is not an accounting exercise for B.C. families. It’s an expensive reality While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government gets set to force a federal carbon tax on all of Canada’s provinces and territories, taxpayers across the country deserve to know what happened in the country’s carbon-tax test case, British Columbia. The Trojan horse of the carbon tax was wheeled into the B.C. public square in 2008 with the government’s promise that it would somehow cost average people nothing and would be “revenue neutral.” But, that turned out to be a cautionary tale for the ages. For years, the carbon-tax cheerleaders continued to laud the fee that’s been tacked on to carbon-emitting goods and services, urging the rest of the country to follow suit. It was touted as a magical formula that would somehow protect the environment and lower taxes all at once. Visions of hydrogen-powered buses and solar cars danced in the heads of the green bean counters. “Revenue neutral” they all sang. The reality of government, however, is always duller and grift-ier than that. The current B.C. government has dropped the term “revenue neutral” altogether and now calls the carbon tax a “tool.” Before the charade was abandoned entirely, this is what “revenue neutral” meant for the B.C. carbon tax: In 2016–17 the provincial government raked in $1.2 billion in the carbon tax from taxpayers. The amount is listed on page 68 in the budget document as a frame entitled: “Revenue Neutral Carbon Tax Plan.” Then, the government scraped together 17 sundry tax credits and stuffed them into the carbon-tax frame, making the tax sum balance out to zero. Abracadabra: “revenue neutral.” That’s all it meant. It was a crass puppet show. Every provincial and federal budget includes tax credits for things like home renovations, children’s fitness programs, film incentives, and business training tax credits. In B.C., however, there is an uncommon carbon tax taken from people, so these very common credits were just repackaged to make the tax appear neutral on paper. As a senior B.C. government official admitted during last year’s budget lockup, “this was always just an accounting exercise.” The carbon tax is not an accounting exercise for B.C. families. It’s an expensive reality for any Canadian subjected to it. Under the federal formula at $35 per tonne, the carbon tax costs a lot of money at the gas station, approximately 8.55 cents per litre of gasoline with the GST tacked onto it, and 10.06 cents per litre for diesel with the GST. To fill up an average Toyota Camry with a 70-litre fuel tank costs $6 in carbon tax. A Dodge Ram pick-up truck costs more than $10 in carbon tax and a Ford Super Duty Diesel costs more than $17 per fill up. For tractor-trailer trucks, it costs $45 in carbon taxes to fill up just one of those cylinder tanks with diesel. Canadians bought more than 40 billion litres of gasoline and more than 16 billion litres of diesel fuel in 2016. Multiply that volume by the carbon tax per litre and the government haul is crystal clear. It gets worse, though, because even with the carbon tax costing Canadians billions of dollars, it’s still not reducing emissions, according to environmentalists leading the carbon-tax charge. In January, the Sierra Club reported on the B.C. experiment: “emissions were higher in 2015 than in 2010 and have risen in four of the last five years. B.C.’s latest emissions data mark years of failure to reduce emissions by more than a token amount.” If taking billions of dollars away from Canadians doesn’t reduce emissions, then, what is the point of this forced carbon tax? When the forced federal carbon tax is set at $50 per tonne in 2022, that means that gasoline will have a carbon tax of 11.63 cents per litre. Will that be enough? Not according to the Environment Canada bureaucrats who told Environment Minister Catherine McKenna that the country needs a carbon tax of $100 per tonne by 2020 and a tax of $300 per tonne by 2050 to meet the government’s promises under the Paris climate agreement. That would be 23 cents per litre on gas in 2020 and then 70 cents per litre by 2050 — about $50 extra in today’s money to fill up the family sedan. People need to use oil and gas. The carbon tax doesn’t make people “reduce their use” of this modern lifeblood, it just costs them a lot of money while not stopping the emissions. Our economy and our modern way of life depend on oil and gas. We use them to run our power stations, till our soil, plant our food, mine our minerals, mill our wood, heat our greenhouses, manufacture all of our goods and haul those goods and food to market. We use oil and gas products to travel to school, work and the beach. Planes, automobiles and transit buses all use oil and gas, and they were manufactured and shipped to us using oil and gas. All of these actions of everyday life depend upon the miracle of hydrocarbons, so, the carbon tax is a tax on everything. Carbon taxes don’t just make gasoline more expensive, they make life much more expensive. https://business.financialpost.com/opinion/b-c-tricked-canadian-politicians-into-believing-its-carbon-tax-policy-works-it-doesnt
  3. Arrogant Elitists At Toronto Star Run Horribly Condescending Attack On Alberta Workers Without Alberta workers, and without the oil industry in particular, Canada would be a much poorer and much worse country. Working People and our energy sector keeps our country alive and functioning. Look at it this way: Canada couldn’t survive without the energy industry. But we sure could survive without the corrupt establishment media. But the arrogant elitists in the establishment media don’t realize how redundent they are. Instead, they have an inflated sense of their own importance, and look down with contempt on every else. “When Conservatives talk about the elites, this is what we mean. The condescension, talking down to and mocking of people they see as yokels. The pearl-clutching over a high-school dropout actually making a good wage for doing an honest day’s work.” While there may be some good reporters at the Toronto Star, the overall organization and attitude of the establishment media elites is absolutely dripping with contempt towards Canadian Workers and towards the energy industry. And that obvious contempt is why more and more people are rejecting the establishment media and turning towards websites like SpencerFernando.com, where the truth and the viewpoint of common-sense Canada is actually represented, instead of constantly denigrated. https://www.spencerfernando.com/2019/04/18/arrogant-elitists-at-toronto-star-run-horribly-condescending-attack-on-alberta-workers/
  4. No amount of logic will change the minds of the twisted demented hateful Left. They act like out of control trained seals clapping for fish with but one focus...Revenge at any cost ! It’s a bitch when you finally discover that this “ Noose “ you have been tightening for 3 years is around your own neck.
  5. Censorship happens in the blink of an eye. Two weeks ago, I tweeted a triptych that read: “How censorship happens: a story in three parts.” The first image was of a recent Vice headline stating that Facebook was moving to ban white nationalism and white separatism. The second was a tweet by left-wing activist Anthony Watson referring to Quillette as a “right-wing, white-nationalist website.” The third was a tweet thread in which two Canadian academics speak about monitoring and making a list of Canadians who dared to publish with Quillette. Censorship happens as quickly as one can construct a false syllogism. And right now would be a very good time for us to start paying attention to where and how it’s happening. Facebook’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg penned a recent op-ed in the Washington Post in which he advocated for a laws against what he refers to as “harmful content” as well as international laws to monitor and regulate the internet. “It’s time to update these rules [of the internet] to define clear responsibilities for people,” Zuckerberg said. Of course, big tech is not waiting for the laws they crave to take action. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube have all deplatformed controversial figures such as Alex Jones, Faith Goldy, and Milo Yiannopoulos. These precedents have then been used to ban perfectly mainstream and reasonable figures like Meghan Murphy, a feminist who committed the high crime of “misgendering” on Twitter. She’s not the only one. Gender critical voices are routinely banned on Twitter, while their opposition is free to libel and level threats of violence with no administrative consequences. It seems that the rush to censor coincides with major tragedies in the world. Or, perhaps the censors among us exploit tragedies in order to achieve their goals of making our culture antiseptic. The desires of speech-denying ideologues line up perfectly with big tech companies, who are primarily interested in manifesting their dominance in marketplaces worldwide, not adhering to ethical standards. As the regressive censors continue to dance with their corporate partners, it’s never been clearer that we need more speech and more platforms. Take, for instance, the rush to smear conservative commentator Ben Shapiro in the wake of the Notre Dame Cathedral tragedy. Shapiro tweeted: “Absolutely heartbreaking. A magnificent monument to Western civilization collapsing” He added a few follow-up tweets stressing the importance of God and Judeo-Christian tradition. As a result, Washington Post contributor Talia Levin spat out an incoherent hot takeclaiming that Shapiro was stoking racial tensions: “Given the already-raging rumors about potential Muslim involvement, these tweets evoked the specter of a war between Islam and the West that is already part of numerous far-right narratives,” she wrote. Levin also unfairly slimed conservative writer and filmmaker Mike Cernovich, whose “wordcrime” was to tweet “The West has fallen.” In Levin’s depraved mind, these simply phrased, mournful tweets are enough to liken these conservatives to actual Nazis like Richard Spencer. It’s disgusting. When Shapiro punched back on Twitter, Media Matters got involved. For those who aren’t aware, Media Matters is the powerful woke-scold organization that regularly boycotts and slimes prominent conservatives in the name of progress. **bleep** you and the burro you rode on.” There it is. These are the words of the “prestigious” organization that wants to keep us safe from dangerous language. The tweet was properly ratioed, and the Washington Post smear backfired this time, but if Levin had her way, the “trust and safety” teams of big tech would be holding meetings to figure out how to get Shapiro off of their platforms. After the New Zealand mosque shooting, a major bookstore banned Jordan Peterson’s self-help book, 12 Rules for Life, in a completely ill-advised attempt to to keep their culture safe. Of course, the irony was that Peterson’s work is specifically effective in helping young men sort out their lives and avoid the pitfalls of radicalization. Thanks to the voices of reasonable people, Peterson’s book was reinstated. The censors among us start out by targeting Alex Jones or Faith Goldy or whoever they feel they can safely say is a conspiracy theorist or a white supremacist. But they don’t stop there. If they had their way, they would never stop. They simply need those people for precedent. Did you develop an appreciation of Western civilization by listening to Ben Shapiro? You’re a white supremacist. Did you clean your room and straighten out your life thanks to Dr. Peterson’s book? You’re a white supremacist. Did you publish an essay with Quillette? You’re a white supremacist. We can all clearly see the game that they’re playing, and we can’t let them win. We need to speak out while we still can. https://www.thepostmillennial.com/censorship-happens-in-the-blink-of-an-eye/
  6. “ The CBC’s Neil Macdonald is an ignorant bigot. “ “ This airtight worldview is precisely the reason that the arrogance of the elites has left them so unprepared for what is happening across the Western world. When you silence your opponents with condescension and name-calling, you ensure that the only response can be political.” https://thebridgehead.ca/2017/06/01/the-cbcs-neil-mcdonald-is-an-ignorant-bigot/

  10. New ‘independent’ Senator and former CBC pollster under fire for pro-Trudeau poll Conservative senators want rookie Trudeau appointee Donna Dasko to consider repaying $15,000 in expenses for a “push poll” she commissioned out of her office budget, then used to ballyhoo Liberal government reforms. “Clearly this survey was developed with partisan political considerations in mind, attempting to validate Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau’s platform promises,” said Conservative Senate caucus leader Larry Smith, adding the dubious poll broke enhanced spending rules restricting partisan activities. In June of 2018, Trudeau picked the prominent Canadian pollster to occupy one of 105 seats in the Canadian Senate: storied Upper Chamber of sober second thought to the House of Commons’ legislative inclinations. A Prime Minister’s Office-vetted bio describes Dasko as “media commentator” whose record with Environics, the polling company she founded, included the “Globe-Environics Poll and election and special feature polling for the CBC.” Dasko is among 49 senators appointed via a new shortlist process, a product of Trudeau’s promised Senate reform and different from the old-fashioned way of a PM simply nominating anyone he or she pleased. While Trudeau claims this Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments will make the Senate non-partisan, the board is entirely handpicked by the Prime Minister’s Office. Additionally, the panel is not only concerned about merit, but rates candidates on a range of metrics including sexual and ethnic diversity – see the board’s latest report, here: Gauging public sentiment on these appointment changes – a process that led to Dasko’s own selection – was the goal of the Nanos poll she commissioned, and according to its results, the entire reform process is virtually unknown to half of the 1000 Canadians who answered her survey.! Nevertheless, Dasko claims her poll’s results show 77 per cent want to keep these reforms that fewer than four-out-of-ten admit they “heard or read something about” – just 56 per cent actually “heard about independent senators.” The first independent senators were born in April 2014, when Trudeau decided to cut existing Liberal appointees in the Upper Chamber from the party’s national caucus. The son of former PM Pierre Trudeau had barely been party leader for a year before making this nation-changing decision. And his Senate reform continued after winning a majority government, when in January 2016, the PMO established by way of Order-in-Council, the advisory board to weed through applicants and build a roster of potential “independents” to fill Senate vacancies. By March of that year, the Independent Senator Group in the Upper Chamber was formed; an amalgam of Trudeau’s original castaways, destination for his new picks and haven for embattled Harper-era appointees including Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau.” Trudeau’s decision to abandon his Senate caucus occurred just months before Duffy was charged with 31 counts of fraud, breach of trust and bribery in July of 2014. It was the capper on highly publicized spending scandals involving all three that culminated with Duffy’s trial and exoneration, well after Stephen Harper lost the election and had exited federal politics. But even an intensifying scandal focussed on his trio of picks – suspended in November 2013 from the Senate (all since reinstated) – didn’t prevent then-PM Harper from chiding Trudeau’s decision to cut his Liberal senators loose. “I gather the change announced by the leader today is that unelected Liberal senators will become unelected senators who happen to be Liberal,” said Harper during question period repartee on that Senate scandal and purported reform at the time. Harper wanted an elected Senate, but requiring Constitutional support by the provinces to do it, the polarizing Conservative leader could only exercise that option in Alberta, which had its own elected appointee process until related provincial legislation expired in 2016. Dasko’s survey notes 46 per cent still report “negative impressions” of the Senate due to “scandal” but credits a 20 per cent drop in negative impressions since 2016 to Trudeau’s reforms. Nearly 60 per cent who responded say these reforms will improve the Senate, according to survey results. “Conservative leader Andrew Scheer has vowed to scrap the independent selection process and return to a partisan Senate if elected,” warns Dasko, now a member of the Independent Senate Group, whose 58 mostly Liberal government appointees currently hold the outright majority in the Upper Chamber. And because of this majority, they are called upon to answer for the current government’s policy by the second-largest block – 31 Conservative caucus members under Smith’s leadership in the Senate. All are direct PM appointments under the previous system and members of the Conservatives’ national caucus, unlike a compact of nine Liberals (the third place block), also direct PM-appointees, who now sit unrecognized and estranged by their national caucus. Smith accuses Dasko of creating a “push poll” with leading questions, whose results are very unreliable and ultimately intended for political messaging. Its citation by a salutary Independent Senator Group press release, then reference by ISG leader Peter Harder in Senate debate, only reinforces its partisan intention said Smith. “For a group that claims to be non-partisan, they are certainly playing political games. Their actions speak louder than words,” he said. “With the fall election looming, the testing of the Trudeau Liberal narrative in the Senate should be considered a campaigning effort.” During Thursday’s Senate question period, Senator Dennis Batters challenged Harder for guarantees on the new senate advisory board’s autonomy. “To date you haven’t given us any information so that we can evaluate how independent and arm’s length it really is. We don’t know who sponsored the now 16 most recently appointed senators,” said Batters. “We know that those boards were 100 per cent filled by the PMO.” Harder, who is Trudeau’s first “independent senator” pick under the PM’s Senate-reform package, replied that Dasko’s survey suggested voters had faith in the process. “Let me simply draw attention to a recent public survey that was referenced yesterday by Senator Dasko, which speaks to the support that Canadians have expressed, which I think is 77 per cent on the independent Senate appointment process.” According to the Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments’ December 2018 report (see above link) from a pool of more than nearly 3300 applicants, it shortlisted 180 candidates for selection. But the board’s “arm’s length” credentials were damaged after celebrity chef and CBC Dragon’s Den personality Vikram Vij, a panel member for British Columbia, was discovered as Trudeau’s ‘guest chef’ on the PM’s botched goodwill visit to India. The Post Millennial provided Senator Dasko an opportunity to respond to Smith’s claims she violated office spending rules and to explain her poll’s methodology, but she has not responded as of the time of publishing. Dasko did, however, give an interview on Wednesday to her old paymasters CBC, for whom the PMO earlier bragged Dasko had conducted custom polling in her previous career. Speaking to As It Happens, Dasko denied her poll was partisan and that it broke spending laws in the Senate. “This is perfectly legit. It was all cleared,” Dasko claimed. “Comes right out of my existing budget.” While section 5.18 of the Senate’s office budget policy restricts spending on partisan activities, it does not specifically mention the commissioning of polls. https://www.thepostmillennial.com/new-independent-senator-and-former-cbc-pollster-under-fire-for-pro-trudeau-poll/
  11. Alberta’s election, and the ugly politics in store for Canada “ If you look up the Alberta government’s own economic review and indicators, you eventually land on a page filled with headlines like this; Alberta labour market softening, Alberta inflation cools, Trade sector stabilizing following recent weaknesses, shipments fall with lower energy prices, Alberta employment starts 2019 on a weak note. Some bad news, some middling news, the occasional crack of progress. It goes on and on like this. Page after page. For years “ “ To the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Tides Foundation, Lead Now, the David Suzuki Foundation and all of the others: Your days of pushing around Albertans with impunity just ended. We Albertans are patient and fair minded, but we have had enough of your campaign of defamation and double standards.” https://www.macleans.ca/opinion/alberta-election-2019-gerson/

  13. Will B.C. be the next Province to banish the NDP ? “ Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst for gasbuddy.com and former member of parliament, agrees with Allan's sentiments and is concerned that additional pressure on the oil and gas industry could further inflame prices, which are reaching historic highs. "Vancouver will be at $1.71 per litre (Wednesday). All-time high, historic high, not just for Vancouver, or for B.C., not just for Canada," he said. "It’s the highest price ever paid by any major city in North America, period."
  14. Alberta's Nightmare Is Over It's a great day in Alberta. Seeing weeks worth of fear-mongering and identity politics finally die out with a pathetic whimper has restored my faith in Albertans. I was worried in 2015, but it all makes sense now. Albertans were angry about the cronyism of the PC Party and the ineptitude of the Wildrose, so they had to do something drastic to make a change. Not thinking their votes would really matter, they rage-voted the NDP into power. At the time, it was devastating to watch, but hindsight is almost always 20/20. In 2019, it's clear that Albertans needed the NDP and Rachel Notley to bring them together by showing them the worst of the worst. Almost five decades of Progressive Conservative rot needed to be dealt with. Albertans were becoming disenfranchised, discouraged and angry. Conservatives were divided and the only way to bring them all back together was through socialism, economic hardship and the devastating policies of the NDP. They didn't know it at the time—or maybe they did—but all of this pain would eventually unite them again. Thanks, Rachel. It took four years of NDP rule for Albertans to realize they didn't want NDP rule. Of course, there will always be NDP and union loyalists in Alberta, but their numbers should stay innocuous as long as Jason Kenney does a good job. The Saskatchewan NDP seems on course for a fourth straight defeat after what will have been thirteen years of a centrist, anti-NDP government. Scott Moe has exceeded expectations and if Jason Kenney can do the same (including retiring when necessary), the United Conservatives should hold power for a long time to come. If the birthplace of Canadian socialism can keep the NDP down, Alberta should have no problem. After four years of NDP destruction, there is so much to look forward to and so much to be proud of in Alberta. Identity Politics Failed Who is gay, who is brown, who is most disadvantaged by their sexual orientation and skin colour. This was all the NDP had to work with. However, none of the NDP's gross and racist campaign tactics worked in Alberta. It turns out, all Albertans came together to flick the lights out on an NDP government that had no successful policies to stand on. Calling Jason Kenney racist and homophobic didn't work. Albertans know he isn't any of those things. Albertans know that the economic hardships in Alberta are affecting everyone of all stripes, colours and sexual orientations. We're all in this together. No Albertan would choose to leave another Albertan behind based on his skin colour or sexual orientation, minus a few on the fringes. Albertans came together after the Calgary flood of 2013, just like they did again in 2019. It didn't matter to most of them who was what colour, or who was sleeping with who. These things only matter to the NDP and their supporters. Identity politics is what parties and leaders with no real policies choose as a strategy. Rachel Notley and her NDP didn't have a leg to stand on in this election, so they did what all other NDP governments across Canada have done. They smeared their opponents as racist and homophobic. They did the same in 2015, thinking it was effective. Trying to repeat their success in 2019, they quickly realized Albertans were more concerned with defeating decades of PC corruption and Wildrose ineptitude in 2015—and less concerned about everyone's race and sexuality. Trying to pander to the most disadvantaged minorities in Alberta quickly led to the NDP's defeat. Albertans ended up being more united and less racist than the NDP had hoped. Trying to convince minorities that they are victims of their orientation and race is a classic NDP tactic, but it failed miserably in Alberta. Albertans don't care what kind of off-the-cuff and sarcastic remarks or social media posts someone made a few years ago. People evolve. Time To Re-Focus Now that Notley's disastrous government has been put out if its misery, Albertans can focus on putting their province back on track. It won't be easy, but we have one less enemy to deal with. All that's left now is Justin Trudeau and his Liberals in Ottawa. While we work on getting rid of them, we can put the focus back on restoring the Alberta Advantage. There are some taxes and regulations that need to be repealed, some educational standards that need to be reformed and an energy sector that needs relief. The previous PC government started to rot after the retirement of Ralph Klein, but Jason Kenney has an opportunity to take Alberta back to the Klein era of prosperity. Kenney can cut taxes, cut spending and help Doug Ford, Scott Moe, Andrew Scheer and Brian Pallister fight Justin Trudeau's carbon tax in court. He can help push for pipelines while taking control of the Premier's office. He can fight the NDP in BC with new boycotts and legislation, while using his majority government to deregulate and diversify Alberta's economy. There is so much to look forward to, but we'll need to hold Jason Kenney accountable. His job has only just begun. A New Anti-Trudeau Government Unlike Notley, Jason Kenney will fight Justin Trudeau. Rachel Notley talked a big game, but she did little to take Justin Trudeau to task on pipelines and the economy. While Trudeau's government was trying to help SNC-Lavalin get off the hook to save thousands of jobs in Quebec, Alberta's energy sector was left to die and Rachel Notley did nothing but talk. Alberta has added another anti-Trudeau premier to the bunch. With every new conservative premier, Justin Trudeau gets weaker. With Trudeau still roiled in the SNC-Lavalin scandal, Jason Kenney has an opportunity to re-litigate the fact that Alberta's energy sector was given the backhand while a corrupt Quebec corporation was given the red carpet. Having another loud premier to deal with, Justin Trudeau's PR game has taken another hit. He'll have some dodgy waters to navigate in the next federal election, with five angry premiers and Andrew Scheer breathing down his neck and making his life miserable. Let's not forget about New Brunswick's conservative premier, Blaine Higgs, who has been echoing the sounds of discontent in his province. After decades of stagnation and a suppressed energy sector, New Brunswick is ready to prosper. As Jason Kenney enters in the mix, Trudeau's chances of winning another majority are slimmer. Expect a barrage from all five conservative premiers, some of whom are powerful and influential. They'll make Justin Trudeau's life a living nightmare just in time for October 21. Given his bad temper and thin skin, expect another serious Trudeau misstep or temper tantrum—or many. http://www.poletical.com/alberta-election-2019-notley-loses.php
  15. Every single premier who tied their fortunes to Trudeau has lost their re-election campaign. It happened in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and now Alberta. The PEI Liberals are also headed for defeat later this month. There may not be a single Liberal government left in Canada by 2020.

  18. Trudeau plays politics with terrorism “Trudeau spent most of last week trying to link his Conservative opponents to white supremacist extremism. It’s a ploy he’s been using since the heinous shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, last month. Meanwhile, he pushed through a removal of any reference to Sikh extremism from an intelligence report just before he visited one of the largest Sikh temples in Canada on Saturday.” “So let’s get this straight, we need to be scared of white supremacy and name it, yet when it comes to the group responsible for the deadliest terrorist attack in Canadian history, the Air India bombing, we should drop any reference to that group over political pressure? Justin Trudeau came to power promising “sunny ways.” Now he warns darkly that his opponents are racist and that violence lurks around every conservative corner while turning a blind eye to a history of violence committed in this country. Turns out his sunny ways were as fake as his feminism.” For Justin Trudeau, the problems of terrorism and extremism in Canada appear to be nothing more than partisan political issues. I don’t make that claim lightly, nor do I make it without some kind of proof. In fact, I make this claim based on Trudeau’s actions of the last week. Trudeau spent most of last week trying to link his Conservative opponents to white supremacist extremism. It’s a ploy he’s been using since the heinous shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, last month. Meanwhile, he pushed through a removal of any reference to Sikh extremism from an intelligence report just before he visited one of the largest Sikh temples in Canada on Saturday. What else should we make of this? Prime Minister Justin Trudeau bows his head before speaking at the Khalsa Diwan Society Sikh Temple before marching in the Vaisakhi parade, in Vancouver on Saturday April 13, 2019. (The Canadian Press) There is no evidence that Andrew Scheer the federal Conservative leader supports white supremacy let alone those that would use violence to push the idea for political reasons. Scheer has even denounced the ideology to Trudeau’s face in the House of Commons. He did so last week as Trudeau again raised the issue and falsely claimed that Scheer supported the idea and stood with those that did. “Those are typical Liberal smear tactics. They know that I have always 100% denounced white supremacy and racism and anyone who promotes those hateful ideologies,” Scheer said after Trudeau raised the issue to deflect from a question about the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Yet, there was Trudeau on Friday night linking Scheer to white nationalists in a speech to supporters in Mississauga. He tried to link Scheer, a man I’ve known for 15 years and without a racists bone in his body, to Ontario Premier Doug Ford and then link them both to racism. Ford won seats across the Toronto area with huge support among the city’s many diverse communities. Many of his top staffers, long serving staffers, are visible minorities. But to Trudeau, linking these two men to white nationalism, white supremacy, without proof is fine because it helps him politically. Then there is the removal of Sikh extremism from the 2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada, issued by Public Safety Canada, after consultation with the various intelligence agencies of the federal government. Originally it listed in order, Shia extremism, Right-Wing extremism, Sikh extremism, Sunni extremism, and Canadian extremist travellers. Now the reference to Sikh extremists is gone and is replaced by, “Extremists who Support Violent Means to Establish an Independent State Within India.” On the website of Public Safety Canada is a statement about the removal of Sikh extremism, which says, “The Government’s communication of threats must be clear, concise, and cannot be perceived as maligning any groups.” Funny that. Shia Muslims are a group representing as many as 200 million Muslims around the world. Sunni Muslims are another group and they representing more than 1 billion people. So much for that statement. Did I mention that the change was made just before Trudeau visited a major Sikh temple? Here’s another oddity to deal with. When Trudeau’s minister for foreign affairs appeared before a Senate committee, she emphasized the importance of calling out violent groups by naming them. “I absolutely believe we need to name that threat, we need to be aware of it, and we need to work hard to find ways to protect our societies and our people from it,” Chrystia Freeland said. So let’s get this straight, we need to be scared of white supremacy and name it, yet when it comes to the group responsible for the deadliest terrorist attack in Canadian history, the Air India bombing, we should drop any reference to that group over political pressure? Justin Trudeau came to power promising “sunny ways.” Now he warns darkly that his opponents are racist and that violence lurks around every conservative corner while turning a blind eye to a history of violence committed in this country. Turns out his sunny ways were as fake as his feminism. https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/lilley-trudeau-plays-politics-with-terrorism
