  1. FX traders are falling out of love with the loonie The star of the G10 for the first half of the year, Canadian dollar is now the worst performer The loonie has been one of the worst-performing developed-market currencies in the second half of this year. After outstripping all its Group-of-10 counterparts in the first six months of 2021, it’s fallen 3.6 per cent since June 30. And activity within derivative markets suggests there could be more pain to come for the currency even as the Bank of Canada starts to pave the way for monetary policy tightening. https://financialpost.com/investing/fx-traders-fall-out-of-love-with-loonie-as-canada-goes-to-polls?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR1Ql9efFOh5FUYUhl7tOiCSRFQoqsSuBxcjB4MZ8zWAgevK16R02FXidjE#Echobox=1632158993
  2. True Colors - Scene from Trolls Movie…how appropriate!!
  3. The election campaign's winners and losers So, as you stand there, clutching a scrappy little tabloid in your hands, waiting, grumbling, let’s consider who won and lost. And what that means for their fate. Justin Trudeau: Already, we know that the Liberal leader has lost. He was lusting after a Parliamentary majority, and he’s not getting one. Majority-envy — due to some weird Oedipal thing about his father, methinks — is the sole and only reason he called this unnecessary, unwanted, unsafe election. So, Trudeau has lost, even if he clings to power by his manicured fingertips. Will his party push him out? Not a chance. His party isn’t a party — it’s a cult. Cults don’t have succession plans. Trudeau isn’t going until Trudeau wants to go. And, honestly: what would he do when he quits? A spot at WE is no longer open. Ditto the United Nations, which has little regard for him. So, he loses, but he stays. Sorry. Erin O’Toole: Me and 35 million of my closest friends were wrong about the Conservative leader. We thought — like Trudeau thought — he’d get creamed. In comparative Tory terms, O’Toole is practically a Bolshevik; he ran a hope campaign while Trudeau trafficked in fear. As such, he was not easily depicted as a mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, red-necked crypto-Nazi by the Grit war room. He’ll likely improve on what Blandy Andy Scheer got in 2019. Is he a goner? Not if his party is intelligent, which is always an open question with the modern-era CPC. O’Toole seems to be decent, likeable fellow. Usually, that would mean he’s toast. This time, I think he will live to fight another day. Jagmeet Singh: At the start of his leadership tenure, the NDP leader made an omnishambles of caucus relations, fundraising, and seat-winning. He was a disaster, one unlikely to survive. Now look at him! Our Jagmeet, all grown up! He charms voters! He dominates in debate! He speaks in clips! He even skateboards on Halifax airport tarmacs — I shredded my meniscus doing late-in-life skateboarding, Jag, so be careful — making it all look easy! Singh’s socialist hordes have hit a 20% ceiling in the polls, true, but he’s still likely to pick up some seats — mostly from Trudeau’s Liberals. That stands his leadership in good stead for a while. Singh stays. Annamie Paul: She’s smart, she’s courageous, she’s Jewish, she’s a person of colour — all of which works against her in the rat-infested insane asylum that calls itself the Green Party. Highly unlikely to win her Toronto seat, and highly unlikely to survive the regicide that awaits her. A loss to Canada. Some Guy in Purple: He wasn’t allowed into the debates, so he isn’t allowed into my column. He will, however, blame all of his losses on Yours Truly. LOL, as the kids say. So. There you go, unhappy voter, as you stand there in a long, long (long) line. Not many clear winners, in this Seinfeldian election about nothing — except you. You, and yours, make democracy work by participating in it. So, thank you. You’re a winner. — Kinsella was special assistant to Jean Chretien.
  4. As if there was EVER was a doubt as to their biased coverage…look no further. Wonder how much $$$$ Trudeau gives them each year to stay in business?
  5. Several women's organizations are publicly condemning the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) over the housing of violent biological male offenders who identify as female in women's prisons. Several incidents of abuse and assault of female inmates and staff by trans-identified convicts have been reported.
  6. The Toronto Sun pulls no punches on today's front page. When your record includes "experiencing things differently", firing strong women, ignoring sexual assault allegations in your own party, ignoring sexual assault allegations in the military, and gaslighting the women who dare to question you, you get the 'cover treatment' that you deserve.
  7. England vaccine passport plans ditched Plans to introduce vaccine passports for access into nightclubs and large events in England will not go ahead, the health secretary has said. Sajid Javid told the BBC: "We shouldn't be doing things for the sake of it." It was thought the plan, which came under criticism from venues and some MPs, would be introduced at the end of this month. Just a week ago, the vaccines minister had defended the scheme as the "best way" to keep the night industry open. No 10 stressed the plan - which had been set to be introduced at the end of this month - would be kept "in reserve" should it be needed over autumn or winter. Under the scheme, people would have been required to show proof - whether of double vaccination, a negative Covid test or finishing self-isolating after a positive PCR test - in order to gain entry to clubs and other crowded events https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-58535258?fbclid=IwAR2DIjqf-qcKzcvb43oJivP1IeXveyOck1RpJLUy0wpMa7BozUAFxDhwTH8
  8. WOW,,,,Quebec of all places https://thepostmillennial.com/watch-trudeau-booed-while-arriving-at-quebec-city-hall
  9. Splitting the Conservative vote is literally handing Trudeau a win on a silver platter. At such a pivotal juncture in Canadas history, If Bernier was really concerned about Canada, he would make a public declaration and throw his support behind Otoole
  10. An example of the intelligence level of people making decisions in government service.
  11. Your BORROWED TAX $$$$$R at work !!!!
