I don't live in Ontario and am therefore not really entitled to an opinion but here it is anyway - I'm not a big DF fan but after the gross mis-management of the province by the Liberals can anyone re

People are blaming Sanctuary Cities here but the cities are doing exactly as mandated by their status. When you don’t ask / don’t tell, refuse to share information with federal authorities and refuse to enforce federal immigration law no other outcome is possible.

Frankly, this story stands as proof that the sanctuary city concept actually works very well indeed despite the fact that I find it loathsome in all respects.

In a technocratic totalitarian country, one of the first and most important tasks is to gain control over the nation’s children.

Of all the foundations upon which free societies are built, the most commonly overlooked and yet one of the most critically important in terms of protecting a diversity of belief is the protection of parental rights.

And now we see yet another case of "Using the Race" card.  As an very visible Old Age Pensioner (still in the minority) I guess I should be equally concerned  ?

Distracted driving law could target minorities, advocates warn

Civil liberty advocates warn that Ontario's new distracted driving law could disproportionately affect racialized communities.

Tougher penalties for texting and driving came into effect Jan. 1

Civil liberty advocates warn that Ontario's new distracted driving law could disproportionately affect racial minorities.

Tougher penalties for texting and driving in the province came into effect Jan. 1. Drivers caught talking, texting, dialing or emailing on handheld devices can now be fined up to $1,000.

But there are concerns that the law could allow police to target specific groups over others.

"Is this another reason to pull over black folk that are driving and minding their own business?" asked Ottawa community advocate Richard Sharpe.

"I think we'll have to really be vigilant and safeguard against this law being used to disproportionately target minority groups."

Community advocate Richard Sharpe worries if police rely too much on their own discretion, visible minorities could be hit harder by tougher penalties for distracted driving. 0:27

Studies suggest certain minorities targeted

U.S. legislation intended to reduce texting while driving has received pushback in states like Massachusetts and Iowa, where studies have shown black and Hispanic motorists are far more likely to be pulled over by police.

In Canada, a 2016 report by York University researchers revealed that Middle Eastern and black drivers — particularly young men — were stopped by Ottawa Police Service officers more than any other drivers.

In an interview with CBC News about the new law, Sgt. Mark Gatien said Ottawa police officers will use "subjective" judgment to stop drivers suspected of being distracted.

The executive director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association said that's problematic.

"There's a type of police officer in Ontario who believes in what they consider good old-fashioned policing involving a hunch. And if they don't like the look of somebody, they pull them over," said Michael Bryant.

"[Police could say] 'I thought I saw you on your cellphone, or I thought I saw you looking down as if you were on a cellphone or texting somebody. And that's why I pulled you over.'"

Toronto-based human rights lawyer Anthony Morgan agrees.

"[Police] discretion too often ends up being abused," he said. "That could lead to racial profiling."

Michael Bryant, the head of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, says it's problematic that Ottawa police officers use 'subjective' judgment to stop drivers suspected of being distracted. (CBC)

Tracking traffic stops not enough

Ottawa police officers record the race of drivers at traffic stops, but both Bryant and Morgan said that isn't enough.

"There needs to be meaningful, robust training that is as significant as their use-of-force training," said Morgan.

Bryant also suggests cities and police agencies set aside money in their budgets to specifically address systemic bias. 

"[The] people who are accountable for what the police do ... they have to show us that they are taking this seriously."

Jair Bolsonaro Introduces ‘New Brazil’ at Davos: ‘The Left Will Not Prevail’

 

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro addressed the World Economic Forum at Davos on Tuesday, where he declared the country open for business while criticizing the policies and corruption of previous socialist administrations.

In what proved to be a short keynote address, the Brazilian leader made a pitch designed to excite foreign investors by promising to reduce the “heavy hand” of the state after years of sluggish growth and an economic crisis that saw skyrocketing unemployment and extensive civil unrest.

 

“I took office amid a great ethical, moral, and economic crisis,” he declared. “I want to introduce to all of you the new Brazil we are building. We are committed to changing our history.”

We will work to lower the tax burden, streamline rules and make life easier for those who want to produce and do business as entrepreneurs, invest and create jobs,” he continued. “We shall work to foster economic stability while respecting and honoring contracts … and balancing government accounts.”

Bolsonaro also spoke of his country’s extraordinary natural beauty and declared it his “mission to make progress in harmonizing environmental preservation and biodiversity, with much needed economic development.”

The 63-year-old former army captain also took aim at the left-wing governments that have dominated Latin America over the past two decades but have failed to keep power in recent years with the election of right-leaning governments in Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile, and Paraguay.

“We do not want to have a Bolivarian type of Latin America, as was the case in Brazil under previous administrations,” he said. “I believe that this new wave of interacting with South American countries has had a contagion effect – more center, center-right leaders have been successfully elected in these neighboring countries.”

I believe this is a clear cut response indicating that the left wing will not prevail in that region, which is a very good development in my view, not only for Latin America but for the rest of the world,” he continued. Left-wing regimes continue to prevail in neighboring Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba, all of which Bolsonaro has pledged to push back against by forming a global coalition against communism.

Bolsonaro’s speech was written and revised by his economy minister, Paulo Guedes, a U.S.-educated free marketeer. It reportedly aimed to give “the broadest message possible of the new Brazil that is presenting itself, with our arrival in power.” The trip to Switzerland was Bolsonaro’s first as the Brazilian leader. U.S. officials have previously indicated that he would visit Washington early in 2019 for a meeting with President Donald Trump.

THE NEW FACE OF THE ..USS........aka.....THE UNITED STATES SOCIALIST PARTY.....formerly known as Democrats

Ocasio-Cortez agrees that a world that allows for billionaires is immoral

 

When asked whether “a world that allows for billionaires” is “a moral outcome,” Ocasio-Cortez responded: “No it’s not. It’s not.”

 

Freshman democratic lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday appeared to agree with the idea that a world that allows for billionaires is not moral. 

The question was put to Ocasio-Cortez by The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City.

When asked whether “a world that allows for billionaires” is “a moral outcome,” Ocasio-Cortez responded: “No it’s not. It’s not.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ CALLS CLIMATE CHANGE 'OUR WORLD WAR II,' WARNS THE WORLD WILL END IN 12 YEARS

She then said that she does not believe all billionaires “like Bill Gates, for example, or Warren Buffett are immoral people."

“I’m not saying that, but I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

 

“I think that it’s wrong that a vast majority of the country does not make a living great wage. I think it’s wrong that you can work 100 hours and not feed your kids. I think it’s wrong that corporations like Walmart and Amazon can get paid."

And then there’s TRUDEAU from last years speech at Davos..

 

Trudeau, in Davos speech, tells global super rich that Canada won’t follow U.S. on tax cuts

In an keynote speech to the World Economic Forum, Mr. Trudeau called on corporate chief executives to put workers before profits and take major steps to boost the role of women in the work force and tackle sexual harassment.

 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent a strong message to the global super rich on Tuesday that Canada won't be slashing taxes and regulatory red tape to compete with Donald Trump's America.

In an keynote speech to the World Economic Forum, Mr. Trudeau called on corporate chief executives to put workers before profits and take major steps to boost the role of women in the work force and tackle sexual harassment.

"Too many corporations have put the pursuit of profit before the well-being of their workers … but that approach won't cut it any more," Mr. Trudeau told the elite gathering at the chic ski resort of Davos. "We are in a new age of doing business – you need to give back."

Mr. Trudeau has been under pressure from Canada's business community to cut taxes and regulations to match the competitive reforms undertaken by U.S. President Donald Trump and the Republican Congress.

The Prime Minister, who also met with CEOs of several major multinationals on Tuesday to pitch for investment dollars in Canada, said too many people are being left behind by automation and globalization.

‘ I never thought I'd live to see the day that the murder of children became legalized. What a cold and cruel world we are living in...”

 

HORROR: New York Set To Legalize Abortion Up To Birth

The womb will become an even less safe place for unborn babies in New York come Tuesday. Democrat legislators are set to legalize abortion up to birth and remove the fatal procedure from the state's criminal code altogether with the passing of the euphemistically named Reproductive Health Act.

 

The proposed legislation erases the current limitation on abortion in the state, which is set at 24 weeks. The Reproductive Health Act states, "every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion."

So long as a licensed practitioner acts in "good faith," a baby can be murdered in the womb up to birth in order "to protect the patient's life or health." Notably, the meaning of the word "health" is not defined within the legislation.

"A health care practitioner licensed, certified, or authorized under title eight of the education law, acting within his or her lawful scope of practice, may perform an abortion when, according to the practitioner's reasonable and good faith professional judgment based on the facts of the patient's case: the patient is within twenty-four weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an absence of fetal viability, or the abortion is necessary to protect the patient's life or health," reads the legislation.

The bill is set to be passed in the state legislature on Tuesday to commemorate the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

"This is only the beginning of the protections that we will have for our women, for our environment, criminal-justice reform, education — the list goes on," Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Yonkers) told The Democrat & Chronicle, reports FaithWire. "But in January, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we will make our statement, we will make our mark."

"The bill also removes abortion from the definition of homicide, and from the penal code entirely," reports the Times Union. "Opponents say this limits prosecutors when they look to charge individuals who harm a woman's unborn child in a domestic violence case or otherwise. Supporters say, in such cases, there remain plenty of other, much harsher criminal charges at prosecutors' disposal."

Since New York Republicans lost control of the Senate in November, the bill is expected to pass with Democrat support. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), a Catholic, is expected to sign the legislation.

"As many of you know, the Governor is pushing again for abortion through birth and even after with so-called 'Reproductive Health Act.' Now he has an anti-Life Democrat-led Senate to help him get it through," posted pro-life group New York State Right to Life via Facebook.

Consider though, the more distressing notion that this policy is in response to what Liberal minded voters actually want. Then, test the attendant decay in morality that begat it and apply that to the current state of our civilization vs that of other civilizations that predated our own. Only someone who tailgates the car in front on an ice covered slippery road would be able to shed light on the thinking and rational. 

As I have said before, voting now needs to be considered mandatory with heavy sanctions for failure to participate. I simply want to ensure that we get what we truly deserve.
