Here is another apology inducing scenario.... despite all the claims to the contrary (remember those?), legal cannabis has been the best thing to ever (ever, ever) happen to the illegal market. A true WDYTWGTH event:

One of the main arguments in favour of legalization stands in tatters so allow me to predict the future. Liberals will argue that tweaks are going to fix this, maybe legalizing pot shops all across the country.... the very thing sure to increase the scope of the problem.

It’s been reported that Nathan Whitling, who served as a lawyer for Omar Khadr, has been appointed as a Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.

The move is the latest in a long-line of disturbing moves by the Trudeau government relating to Khadr, including giving him $10.5 million in taxpayers dollars, refusing to help the widow of the American medic he killed get a chance to sue him for the money, and even having Trudeau meet with Joshua Boyle, who had been married to Khadr’s sister for a time.

The move was announced by the government online:

“Nathan J. Whitling, Q.C., Appellate Counsel at Aloneissi O’Neill Hurley O’Keefe Millsap Liberty Law in Edmonton, is appointed a Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. Mr. Justice Whitling replaces Mr. Justice K.G. Nielsen (Edmonton), who was appointed Associate Chief Justice effective May 17, 2019.”

Once again, the Trudeau Liberals have made a move that will outrage Patriotic Canadians, and show total disrespect to our country, our allies, and our soldiers.

More Trudeau rewards for those who defended a terrorist.

Using trump as an example?  He dropped the ball big time by saying it wasn't an issue.  'Murica strong, 'Murica smash virus.

toot little done too late and they are still reeling

Trudeau Self isolated because he was directly in contact with an infected person.  He did EXACTLY what he expects others to do.

and what is your expectation?  Look at Chicago airport.

2 weeks ago I came back from Cuba and had to answer 5 questions.  That is the screening.  

What is happening in Chicago is making things worse.

On our return from Cuba, CBSA moved us through as fast as they could so we didn't crowd together.  Smart move I think.

Trudeau just tried to overturn the election results

He may have backed off, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wanted to overturn the results of the last election and stage what would have amounted to a constitutional coup d’état.

That may sound like hyperbole, but it is not. Under cover of the COVID-19 emergency, the Liberal government intended to present a bill granting the Minister of Finance power to borrow, spend and raise taxes, bail out companies and guarantee pools of debt, all without Parliamentary approval, until the end of 2021. Some of these initiatives may be needed, but it would be an outrageous assault on parliamentary democracy to give untrammelled power to the executive branch.

Five months ago, the Liberals lost their majority in the House of Commons. They obviously were not at all pleased with their new minority status and were trying to take advantage of a pandemic by pretending they need near-dictatorial powers to deal with it. While Trudeau would be happy to be an autocrat for 21 months, he does not need such sweeping powers to deal with the crisis, which he was very late in confronting in the first place.

 

The emergency bill would eliminate parliamentary debate and votes on money bills, which require votes of confidence that can bring down a government. Even the Prime Minister’s father, Pierre Trudeau – no authoritarian slouch himself – did not appropriate such control when he imposed the War Measures Act, for totally different reasons.

For any Opposition party to vote in favour of the bill would have been a serious abdication of parliamentary duty. It is impossible to imagine the Bloc Québécois supporting legislation that deprives Quebec of a voice in the allocation of federal spending. But Trudeau may have tried to cut a deal with Jagmeet Singh, who is reluctant to precipitate an election since the NDP is broke and polls indicate it would lose seats if it had to go to the polls.

Furthermore, Singh’s caucus loves tax and spend policies and big government. The price tag of Trudeau’s fiscal initiatives may rapidly exceed an eye-watering $100 billion, on top of the $100 billion he will soon accumulate during five years in office.

But Trudeau may have tried to cut a deal with Jagmeet Singh, who is reluctant to precipitate an election since the NDP is broke and polls indicate it would lose seats if it had to go to the polls.

It is virtually certain the Liberal massive stimulus spending will entrench social programs that are excruciatingly difficult to unwind. That will be a small step for Trudeau, but a giant step for socialism. As Churchill said, never waste a good crisis.

In spite of the ideological appeal, it would be political suicide for the NDP to give Liberals carte blanche to pursue spending initiatives that will eat into its support and neuter its effectiveness in Parliament.

Meanwhile, the Conservatives are disadvantaged without a permanent leader to stand up to the Prime Minister. Most of the media and ever-helpful progressives claim it would be inappropriate to have a Conservative leadership convention on June 27, when the coronavirus may still be infecting the population, even though last time only four percent voted in person. They are joined by several Conservative candidates without adequate funding and, in most cases, no hope of winning.

However, Trudeau’s latest gambit proves they are wrong. Canada would benefit from a permanent Leader of the Opposition who can hold the government to account, especially when it attempts to illegitimately usurp powers that belong to Parliament. Furthermore, the Conservative Party urgently needs to settle the leadership, since a minority government can frequently engineer an election when it is politically advantageous.

Fortunately, Trudeau’s shocking attempt to subvert responsible government seems to have been forcefully rejected by every Opposition party. Canadians should thank them for defending democracy.

Joe Oliver was minister of natural resources (2011-2014) and minister of finance (2014-2015).

Trudeau blows his rising PR rating by sinking to new low

Our Prime Minister, bless his deluded self, apparently thinks he still leads a majority government where he can ram through any legislation that his progressive little heart desires.

He also must think opposition members, as well as the national press gallery, are all as dumb as posts.

For sure, Justin Trudeau should have stuck to his daily routine, exiting Rideau Cottage every day like a groundhog seeking its shadow and giving his updates about the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions his minority government was proposing to somehow keep the economy alive along with us.

He was apparently getting good ratings for these daily pressers, which must have appealed wildly to his narcissism and conceit.

Then he tripped up big time.

Suddenly he was again the myopic PM who thought it was wise to go on a silly multi-costume tour of India, then uprooted a lot of lives and political careers trying relentlessly to muscle a special prosecution deal for guilty-as-sin Quebec-based SNC Lavalin.

Suddenly he was back to being the sneaky PM with all the ethic breaches, and the first prime minister to ever be convicted of breaking such a law.

Suddenly he was PM Blackface again. And the Kokanee Groper.

All that good PR from his daily pandemic forays was gone.

It was gone because he tried to pull an unconscionable fast one. He tried to sneak in a section in his proposed legislation that would have given him the extraordinary right to spend money wildly and play with our taxes without parliamentary oversight.

There was also a section — initially drafted to start rolling out the $82 billion to fight the economic consequences of the pandemic — which would also give extraordinary spend-and-tax powers to his cabinet that would run unchecked until December 2021.

 

Parliament, effectively neutered, would have no say.

It was an out-and-out power grab at the purse string’s of this nation and virtually a licence for Trudeau to print money, leaving a debt and deficit that our grandchildren’s grandchildren would have to tackle when the predicted climate disaster finally leaves our entire country a barren wasteland.

None of this came up, of course, when Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau talked blasely in public about the proposed legislation — nothing about having a credit card with no maximum, nothing about his cabinet ministers being able to tax willy-nilly with absolutely no constraints.

The Liberals used to complain bitterly when that dastardly former Conservative prime minister, Stephen Harper, used his budget to table a hernia-popping omnibus bill with all sorts of hidden Waldos.

But Harper and his financial sidekick, the late Jim Flaherty, never tried to pull off what Trudeau was trying to pull off.

It raises the question as to why Trudeau even tried it in the first place, because it was so obvious that the opposition parties and the national press gallery were onto the power grab from the get-go.

So, looking back, he must have truly thought he did have a majority, and that the opposition and the media were actually all as dumb as posts.

This only makes sense, right?

The Trudeau Liberals unsurprisingly had to walk back the most egregious sections of their proposed legislation so that it would passed Wednesday and head off to the Senate so those billions in aid could start being distributed.

But all the good vibes Trudeau had earned from his daily Mr. Rogers-type forays into the quiet neighborhood outside Rideau Cottage are gone.

He’s back to being his old underwhelming self.

We’re also working with our international partners on this crisis.

This morning, I had calls with President Sall of Senegal and President Kagame of Rwanda, to share strategies on keeping people safe and addressing the economic impacts of this pandemic.

I’ve also spoken to Prime Minister Abiy of Ethiopia and President Kenyatta of Kenya about international coordination.

And tomorrow, I’ll be speaking with other G20 leaders to discuss further global coordination to our response.

I thought it odd that with the emergency going on here at home, that Africa would be high on the list of Trudeau’s worries.....glad he didn’t get the blank chequebook he was hoping for.....we send enough money overseas on his “pet” projects.

The quote was from his daily pep talk, Mar 25.

And for the outrage at the rumour of US troops being stationed near the border:

Quote

The United States has decided against sending U.S. troops to its border with Canada after the Canadian government said it “strongly opposed” the proposal designed to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday evening that the Trump administration spiked the plan because of Canada’s objections. Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland stressed earlier in the day that Canadian officials made their opposition to the idea “very, very clear to our American counterparts.” “In terms of what we are doing about it, we are very directly and very forcefully expressing ... that in Canada’s view, this is an entirely unnecessary step which we would view as damaging to our relationship,” said Ms. Freeland during Thursday’s ministerial briefing on the novel coronavirus, which causes the respiratory illness COVID-19.
A senior Canadian official with knowledge of the plan said it would have stationed 1,000 troops about 30 kilometres from the border with ground-based sensor technology to track unauthorized crossings. This information would be relayed to border guards to intercept people. Ms. Freeland said Canadian officials learned of the proposal a few days ago.

I hate to inform Ms Freeland but this has been the case for over 100 years.....it’s called Fort Drum, New York and there are about 19000 soldiers stationed there.

As far as surveillance is concerned: I was at an air show at Wheeler Sack Airfield (10000’ runway on the base) years ago and a drone was on display. The soldier was proudly explaining the aircraft to us and it’s varied missions. My wife casually enquired if it was being used along the river for border surveillance....he quickly replied “I can’t talk about that!”.

There are numerous arrests by CBP from smuggling ops in the past with the use of electronic surveillance.

Canada keeps up costly campaign for UN Security Council seat amid COVID-19 crisis

To help secure a seat, Canada be expected to give 'several hundred million' to the African Union for peacekeeping and increase its foreign aid for COVID-19

Sunday March 29, 2020 - Canadian Press
Mike Blanchfield

OTTAWA — The COVID-19 pandemic ended the secret handshakes and deal-making in the world’s power corridors, but Canada’s campaign for a temporary seat on the United Nations Security Council is full steam ahead.

Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne and International Development Minister Karina Gould confirmed the continuing campaigning in separate interviews with The Canadian Press this past week.

They say Canada’s voice on the world’s most powerful decision-making body is needed more than ever because of the big decisions that lie ahead in managing the pandemic and its aftermath.

Canada faces tough competition from Norway and Ireland for the two available seats for a temporary two-year term that would start next year.

Both countries are viewed widely as having an advantage because they spend far more than Canada on international development to poor countries and have far more military personnel deployed on UN peacekeeping missions — two key issues for UN member countries.

Champagne and Gould say that Canada’s international stature has grown because of its response to the COVID-19 outbreak, which so far includes a $50-million foreign aid package, but some ex-diplomats say Canada needs to spend more in that area to win votes.

“I think more and more countries want to see their voice amplified through Canada.”
