There's a reckoning coming and it's not going to be pretty. After years of Trudeau and his Socialist buddies promoting BS theories, the eventual backlash will eventually spill over into untold violence in YOUR BACKYARD. What they don't understand is that Canada USED to be a great country and they are killing the golden goose. My favourite saying comes to mind. " Don't fix it is it isn't broken"

 

Fewer than half of Canadians feel safer when they see a police officer, poll finds

Considering the primary purpose of policing, it reveals a disconnect for Canada’s police agencies and highlights fractures in relations within their local communities

 

Seeing a police officer in public makes more young Canadians feel less secure than safer, and Indigenous and visible minorities of all ages are more likely to feel less safe with police around than white people, a new opinion survey suggests.

Remarkably, despite holding a largely favourable view of police, fewer than half of all respondents — regardless of age, ethnicity or region — expressed feeling more secure when they see a police officer, according to new polling by the Angus Reid Institute, a not-for-profit public opinion research group based in Vancouver.

Considering the primary purpose of policing, the large, national survey reveals a disconnect for Canada’s police agencies and highlights fractures in police relations within their local communities.

“Policing in Canada is oftentimes complex,” the institute says in its report, released Friday. “The relationship Canadians have with their police mirrors this complexity.”

Overall, Canadians generally have a favourable view of the police in their community: 74 per cent of respondents said they view officers “favourably” or “very favourably,” while 21 per cent see police “unfavourably” or “very unfavourably.”

A breakdown of the demographics behind the overall figures shows that older Canadians love their cops, especially white seniors. Favourable views rose and negative views dropped with age. Of those 65 years of age or older, 86 per cent held a positive view and only 11 per cent a negative one.

People aged 18 to 34, regardless of race, had a far lower opinion.

Barely half of the young people (51 per cent) landed on the favourable side while 37 per cent landed on the unfavourable side.

“Notably, Indigenous respondents and those who identify as a visible minority are slightly more likely than Caucasians to hold an unfavourable view of their community police,” the report says.

“That said, the vast majority in all groups say they view the police favourably. This does not, however, mean that these same respondents do not think that there is a systemic issue with how police interact with members of minority groups.”

Of Indigenous respondents, 25 per cent expressed a negative view, as did 24 per cent of visible minority respondents and 20 per cent of white respondents.

While young Canadians over all feel much more threatened by police presence than older ones, young visible minority and young Indigenous respondents are more likely to feel less safe when police are around than white youth.

(The survey showed 39 per cent of visible minority youth said they felt less secure around a cop, 35 per cent of Indigenous youth, and 30 per cent of white youth.)

That said, the vast majority in all groups say they view the police favourably

 

Discontent with police is more evident in Canada’s bigger cities than in rural areas.

“Urban Canadians are about 40 per cent more likely to view police unfavourably than those in rural areas,” the report says.

The highest unfavourable rating was found in Montreal, with 29 per cent holding a net unfavourable view with 67 per cent a net favourable view, followed by Vancouver (27 per cent unfavourable and 69 per cent favourable) and Winnipeg (26 per cent unfavourable and 70 per cent favourable).

Of those in Toronto, 24 per cent expressed an unfavourable and 69 per cent favourable view. Regina, on the other hand, had a high of 84 per cent saying they had a favourable view to 16 per cent an unfavourable one.

Two third of respondents had at least one “direct interaction” with police in the last five years. Notably, the older cohort, those who most like police, had the fewest direct interactions with an officer.

“Indigenous respondents are most likely to say that their experiences have been negative. Three-in-ten (29%) say this, compared to one-quarter of visible minorities (25%) and one-in-five Caucasians (20%),” the report says.

The public opinion survey is the first of a two-part exploration of perspectives on policing in Canada. The second part, looking at issues of defunding police and systemic racism in policing, is scheduled for next week, according to the institute.

From Aug. 26 to Sept. 1, a representative, randomized sample of 5,005 Canadian adults who are members of Angus Reid Forum were questioned through an online survey.

The institute said the survey was commissioned and funded internally.

Signs Saudis are edging towards historic Israel peace

By Frank Gardner
BBC security correspondent

Published
37 minutes agoespair

Will they or won't they? It's a question on a lot of people's minds in the Middle East right now.

Are Saudi Arabia's rulers, historically critics of Israel and its treatment of the Palestinians, finally edging closer to normalising relations with the country often dismissively referred to in the past by Arab media as "the Zionist entity"?

Prompting feverish speculation on social media has been the scathing set of interviews given to Al-Arabiya TV by former Saudi intelligence chief and longtime ambassador to Washington, Prince Bandar Bin Sultan al-Saud, who lambasted Palestinian leaders for criticising recent peace moves with Israel by Gulf Arab states.

"This low level of discourse is not what we expect from officials who seek to gain global support for their cause," said Prince Bandar in the three-part interview.

"Their [Palestinian leaders'] transgression against the Gulf states' leadership with this reprehensible discourse is entirely unacceptable."

Palestinian leaders initially described the UAE and Bahrain's normalisation of relations with Israel as a "betrayal" and "a stab in the back".

Prince Bandar, who spent a remarkable 22 years as Saudi ambassador to Washington and was so close to former US President George W Bush that he was often nicknamed Bandar Bin Bush, spoke of "the historic failures" of the Palestinian leadership. It had taken Saudi support for granted, he told his audience.

Although he made a point of calling the Palestinian cause a "just" one, he placed equal blame on Israel and the Palestinian leadership for failing to reach a peace deal after so many years.

How, he argued, referring to the split between the Palestinian Authority, which governs in the West Bank, and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which holds power in Gaza, can Palestinians possibly reach a fair deal when their leaders cannot even agree among themselves?

Such words, said a Saudi official close to the ruling family, would not have been aired on Saudi-owned television without the prior approval of both King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

 

By choosing Prince Bandar, a veteran diplomat and longstanding pillar of the Saudi royal establishment to deliver them, said the official, it was the clearest sign yet that the Saudi leadership may be preparing its population for an eventual deal with Israel.

Historical suspicions

It does seem that both by Prince Bandar's words and by quietly endorsing the recent UAE and Bahraini normalisations with Israel, the Saudi leadership is moving rather faster towards rapprochement with Israel than much of its own population.

For so many years, especially in the more rural, isolated corners of the kingdom, Saudis have been accustomed to viewing not just Israel as the enemy, but also all Jewish people.

I remember in one mountain village in Asir province a Saudi telling me in all seriousness that "on one day of the year Jews drink the blood of babies".

Thanks to the internet and satellite TV those kinds of conspiracy theories are rarer in the kingdom now; Saudis spend a huge amount of time online and are often better informed about world affairs than people in the West.

Yet given the xenophobia and historical suspicion of outsiders that exist among certain parts of the Saudi population it will take time to turn around this metaphorical tanker in midstream, which is why Saudi Arabia has not rushed to follow its Gulf neighbours in forging a historic deal.

Saddam calamity

Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states' history of relations with the Palestinians is a chequered one.

Gulf governments have nominally supported the Palestinian cause, both politically and financially, for decades.

But when Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat sided with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein over his invasion and occupation of Kuwait in 1990 they felt an enormous sense of betrayal.

After the US-led Operation Desert Storm and the liberation of Kuwait in 1991, that country expelled the entire expatriate community of Palestinians, replacing them with thousands of Egyptians.

Visiting a traumatised Kuwait City that year, I noticed some Arabic graffiti scrawled on the side of an abandoned pizza restaurant.

"Al-Quds da'iman lil'Sihyouneen, w'ana Kuwaiti', it read. "Jerusalem is the eternal home of the Jews, and I'm a Kuwaiti [writing this]".

It took a long time for the region's older rulers to get over Arafat's "betrayal". Ironically perhaps, someone who did more than most to heal the rifts across the Arab world was Kuwait's own late Emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, who died last month, aged 91.

Saudi peace plan

Saudi Arabia does have history when it comes to holding out an olive branch to Israel.

In March 2002 I was at the Arab Summit in Beirut, where a slight, urbane, balding man with perfect English was doing the rounds, explaining something called the Crown Prince Abdullah Peace Plan.

The man was Adel Jubair, then a foreign affairs adviser in the Crown Prince's Court, now Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs.

The peace plan dominated the summit that year and it was unanimously endorsed by the Arab League.

Essentially, it offered Israel full normalisation with the entire Arab world in exchange for a withdrawal from all occupied territories, including the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and Lebanon, as well as giving the Palestinians East Jerusalem as their capital and reaching a "just solution" for Palestinian refugees who, in the Arab-Israel war of 1948-49, had been expelled or driven from their homes in what became Israel.

The plan received international support and it briefly put Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on the spot. Here, at last, seemed a chance to end once and for all the historic Arab-Israeli conflict.

But just before the plan was published, Hamas bombed an Israeli hotel in Netanya, killing 30 people and wounding more than 100. All talk of peace was off the table.

Fast forward 18 years and the Middle East has moved on in so many ways, although the Palestinians have yet to achieve independent statehood and Israeli settlements considered illegal under international law continue to encroach on Palestinian land in the West Bank.

The UAE, Bahrain, Jordan and Egypt have now all made their peace with Israel and have full diplomatic relations.

In fact, unlike the strained "cold peace" that Jordan and Egypt have with Israel, the two Gulf states are accelerating their ties with Israel.

Within days of Bahrain signing the Abraham Accord at the White House, Israel's spy chiefs were visiting Manama, talking intelligence co-operation on their mutual adversary, Iran.

Testing the water

So how do Israeli officials feel about a potential future normalisation with Saudi Arabia?

They have certainly watched Prince Bandar's interview with interest but have so far declined to comment directly.

Instead, a spokesman for the Israeli embassy in London said: "We hope that even more countries will recognise the new reality in the Middle East by joining us on the road to reconciliation."

Saudi Arabia has traditionally moved slowly and with great caution when it comes to changes of policy, testing each move before committing itself.  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-54437222

But the arrival on the scene of the maverick Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has changed all that.

Women can now drive, there is public entertainment, and the country is slowly opening up to tourism.

So a Saudi-Israeli peace deal, while not necessarily imminent, is now a real possibility.

These three statements tell you a lot about our government and our culture:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.  

...Funny how that works.

And another statement for consideration-- 

2.We constantly hear about how CPP (Canada Pension Plan) is going to run out of money..  How come we never hear about welfare running out of money?

...What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

Finally

3.Provincial Social Services (welfare payments) is proud to be distributing this Year the greatest amount of free money ever..

Meanwhile, the Parks Branch, Asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." The stated reason for this policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to Take care of themselves."

...That ends Today's Lesson On Irony

De-icers heroes:

1. According to public records, Joseph "Jojo" Rosenbaum has a long history of violence.

Rosenbaum was convicted in Arizona in 2002 for committing an act of sexual misconduct with a child. 

According to his entry in the sex offender registry, he was a level 3 offender, meaning he was at a high risk of reoffending and a general danger to his surroundings. 

Arizona Department of Corrections records reveal that Rosenbaum spent 12 1/2 years in prison after being convicted of two counts of 3rd degree sexual misconduct against a minor and one count of interfering with a monitoring device. For sexual misconduct with a minor to reach the level of class 3 felony, the victim must be under the age of 15.  

More telling is Rosenbaum's 42 seperate disciplinary infractions while incarcerated, including numerous assaults, committing sex acts, manufacturing a weapon, and arson. He was then released in 2016.

According to records from the Wisconsin Circuit Court, Rosenbaum had pending charges for battery as domestic abuse filed just last month

2. Public records show that Huber was in fact a violent criminal with a history of abusing his loved ones. 

In 2012, Huber pled guilty to false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon and strangulation as domestic abuse. He appears to have violated the terms of his probation in 2016 and was sentenced to two years in state prison, much of it settled with time served. Huber was arrested again in 2018 for battery.

The woman fundraising in his name, Hannah J Gittings, currently has a warrant out for her arrest for refusing a breathalyzer while driving drunk and driving with a revoked license. 

3. Gaige P. Grosskreutz, a pistol wielding anarchist who was shot in the arm while attacking the teenaged Rittenhouse, was charged with felony burglary and theft in 2013. He violated his probation just 4 months later. He has another arrest from 2017. 

It is unclear from public records if Grosskreutz was ever convicted of a felony. If so, his possession of a firearm is a serious offense that could net him 10 years in prison. 

According to a media puff piece, Grosskreutz was a professional activist with Milwaukee based "People's Revolution," a more extreme breakaway from the Black Lives Matter NGO. 

Who is next de-icer. We know who you love. And I am sure all three were so very concerned about black lives. Wake up. Actually, we know you are awake and support violent revolutionaries

It is your twisted words that are trying to implicate me because of your failings.

Will state once again, I don't support any violence.  Those are your words not mine.

Just like in the past when you wrote about wanting to hurt people.

That's why you need help.

Culture war targets Poland’s LGBTQ2 community

PPoPoland's  ‘LGBT-free zones’ trigger global outcry for actionn

Poland has seen at least 100 communities self-designate as 'LGBT-free zones' this year. Canada has joined dozens of countries to condemn the action. Mike Drolet reports.

  •  
  • A culture war raging within Poland threatens to isolate the country from the rest of Europe.

For the past year, Poland has seen a dramatic rise in the number of towns and municipalities declaring themselves “LGBT-free zones.” The resolutions are not legally binding, as same-sex couples are protected under Polish law. But with a third of the country now seemingly anti-LGBTQ2, the disconnect is growing between religious conservatives and social liberals.

At a recent All-Polish Youth Movement meeting, attendees told Getty News that it was “unnatural to be LGBT” according to their faith and traditions.

“The basic idea is that somehow LGBT people represent a threat to a kind of traditional values or particular forms of the family,” says Graeme Reid of Human Rights Watch. “And in the way in which Polish nationalism presents itself these days, it’s seen as a kind of threat to the nation.”

Faced with dwindling support for his re-election campaign in June, Polish President Andrzej Duda signed a “family charter” which included pledges to prevent same-sex couples from marrying or adopting children and a ban on teaching LGBTQ2 issues in schools.

Duda also hit on a sensitive subject for most Poles when he denounced the LGBTQ2 rights movement as an “ideology worse than communism.”

“I think the best way to understand it is really as a way of scapegoating a vulnerable minority in order to advance the political agenda,“ Reid says. “And that political agenda is one that’s undermining democracy in Poland. The LGBT ideologies zones are a distraction, but they are a distraction that’s very damaging to a group of people who are particularly vulnerable.”ested LGBTQ activist

People in Poland protest to support arrested LGBTQ activist

The LGBTQ2 community has fought back with rallies and they’ve appealed for help from the international community, but there’s only so much that can be done. U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden publicly condemned the situation and the European Union denounced the anti-LGBTQ2 resolutions as “humanity-free zones” and cut off funding to several towns. Duda’s government countered by not only making up the difference but also by giving those towns three times what they would have received from the EU.

 

During Warsaw Pride, Canada was among a group of 40 countries that signed a letter supporting the LGBTQ2 movement and some European towns have suspended their relationships with Polish sister cities that have adopted anti-LGBTQ2 bills.

Canada has four municipalities that are twinned with Polish towns — Brantford, Chatham-Kent, Cape Breton and Windsor — but none of their Polish twin cities has passed the anti-LGBTQ2 bill. The issue was put before Windsor’s International Relations Committee in May. Coun. Fred Francis says councillors were relieved when their counterparts in Poland said Lublin town council was a firm supporter of LGBTQ2 rights.

Poland decriminalized relations between same-sex couples in 1932 but is known for having the weakest gay rights in Europe with no protection from hate speech and hate crimes.

“I would say the situation in Poland is very concerning,” says Kimahli Powell of the Rainbow Railroad. “I would say that people are frightened. I would say that people are also being vigilant, as they always are, and advocating against these zones.”

The Rainbow Railroad helps LGBTQ2 people escape persecution and violence. Every year, it receives over 3,000 requests for help. Powell says Rainbow Railward is watching the situation in Poland closely.

That’s when they usually come to us for help — when essentially folks are criminalized within their towns and local communities and cannot rely on any sort of protection from the state.”

Google’s Latest Smartphone Feature: Listening to Every Sound in Your House

Tech giant Google has reportedly rolled out an update to its Android mobile platform that will enable devices to listen to every sound in users’ homes and alert them to certain household sounds.

 

The Independent reports that Google has rolled out a new update to its Android mobile operating system that enables devices to listen in on users’ homes and alert them to particular sounds. The new feature is an accessibility update added to google’s Live Transcribe function, which automatically records and writes down audio or other speech that the phone’s microphone picks up.

Live Transcribe can now detect sound including smoke alarms, fire alarms, sirens, babies crying, doorbells, barking dogs, running water, people knocking on doors, and more. The user’s Android device will then alert them to the event via a notification, camera flash, or vibration.

 

Live Transcribe also has a timeline feature that allows users to scroll through previous events in the day, showing all sounds that their device detected over the course of a few hours. Google stated in a blog post: “This shows when and how long the sound occurred to get a better sense of the sound’s importance, so if the dog has been barking because of a siren heard before that for 10 minutes, you can see that.”

The sound notifications use machine learning to determine odd household sounds but Google claims that the information is stored entirely on the user’s device and is not shared elsewhere.

In August, Google accidentally updated some Home smart speakers to listen to passive sounds including air compressor tanks, popped bubble wrap, glass breaking, and alarms.

Nobel Prize winning economists aren't wrong...

https://north99.org/2019/10/30/nobel-prize-winning-economist-debunks-rightwing-economics/

By now we are all familiar with the usual economic talking points of right-wing politicians. They tell us, with the utmost confidence, that cutting taxes for the rich will incentivize investment and job creation. The lower the corporate tax rate the more people these benevolent corporations will employ. That, in a nutshell, is the mantra of conservative economics.

Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo, this year’s winners of the Nobel prize for economics, beg to differ. Their work suggests that not only does this strategy intensify economic inequality, it also doesn’t do much to induce economic growth.

As Banerjee puts it, “You don’t boost growth by cutting taxes, you do that by giving money to people.” Modest increases to the taxes paid by the wealthiest could fund welfare programs that put more money into the pockets of average folks. They, in turn, return this money into the economy in the form of consumption. It is their spending which increases demand for goods and services and boosts investment, jobs, and overall growth.

Banerjee and Duflo’s advice flies in the face of right-wing economic policy. Conservatives, in Canada and abroad, are reducing taxes for corporations and wealthy elites in the hopes that they will invest some of the cash they are hoarding.

Take the United Conservative government in Alberta for instance. This year they announced plans to slash the corporate tax rate from 12 percent down to 8 percent. They call it the “Job Creation Tax Cut”. This year a 1% reduction was implemented, which did indeed cut costs for corporations and leave them with more cash on hand. Husky Energy which had benefited to the tune of $233 million from the tax cuts, then proceeded to lay off hundreds of workers. Far from creating employment, the “Job Creation Tax Cut” did nothing to save Albertan jobs from the chopping block.

Worst yet, the tax cuts resulted in a loss of government revenues. To offset these losses, the Conservative government in Alberta is gutting welfare programs that would have left more money in the hands of consumers. If Banerjee is even slightly correct, these changes will not only do little to attract investment and employment, they will have adverse effects on economic growth and inequality.

So, on one side we have a Nobel prize-winning economists that tell us to increase taxes and give more money to average folks who will spend it. On the other side, we have Conservatives like Jason Kenney that are decreasing welfare spending and giving more money to rich folks who are hoarding it. Take your pick. It’s not a hard choice.

If your concerned about the governments cutting taxes, you should  also be concerned about governments bailing out losers, by giving away millions , and benefitting the bod with cash windfalls. No guarantees though for the employees:

Justin Trudeau refused Monday to denounce Bombardier for enriching its executives even as the company rakes in nearly $1 billion in taxpayer money, drawing opposition charges that the Liberals are on wobbly legs when it comes to standing up for the middle class.

The ensuing public outcry has prompted the Montreal-based aerospace firm to put off for a year giving six executive officers more than half of the compensation it had planned — and has also prompted the prime minister to change his tone.

Bombardier is eliminating 14,500 jobs around the world by the end of next year, part of a restructuring plan aimed at helping the company turn itself around. The plan includes federal and provincial money: a $372.5-million federal loan for Bombardier’s CSeries and Global 7000 aircraft programs, and $1 billion from Quebec.

A long-time Conservative MP says Gateway Casinos and Entertainment, which operates Casino Rama and many other gambling facilities, “swindled a naive prime minister out of $200 million” of taxpayers’ money.

During an animated exchange with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Wednesday in the House of Commons, Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre says Gateway is a “failing casino firm” and he chided Trudeau for “throwing away our money in this jackpot for casino insiders.”

The company was just downgraded to junk status and its parent company lost 95 per cent of its value on the stock market before being delisted altogether,” Poilievre said Wednesday.

“In fact, financial experts in Toronto say the company vastly overvalues its assets. But there is someone who would invest other people’s money in it - the casino just got the jackpot of $200 million from this government,” said the former cabinet minister in Stephen Harper’s government.

We've had 'richer' people ever since Reagan, Thatcher, and Mulroney brought in trickle down economics.

As you see, it isn't working that well.  You need to circulate money to make an economy work, not hoard it.

What you describe is just returning to medieval times with Lords and peasants.

Something else needs to be done.
