Downtown Toronto living for the hip condo lifestyle:

Quote

In the video, she lists a myriad of issues — frequent fire alarms, a lack of maintenance, a heavy police presence, long lines for elevators, a lack of social distancing, and multiple instances where stray bullets struck the building.

“There was constantly a stench of garbage and trash in the halls and stairways because the garbage chutes were never operational,” Loucks told CTV News Toronto. “One elevator had been down since the day we moved in.”

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair". The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish . . . Soldiers: don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate. The unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty. In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written: - "The kingdom of God is within man" Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you. You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let us use that power. Let us all unite! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfill that promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness. Soldiers! In the name of democracy: Let us all unite!

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.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/commentary/article-erin-otooles-anti-trade-anti-business-stand-is-at-odds-with-his-own/

Erin O’Toole’s anti-trade, anti-business stand is at odds with his own party’s history

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole pitches his position on free trade as a stand against the failed policies of the Liberal government. In reality, his battle is with the ghosts of his own party.

In a short video posted to Twitter last week, Mr. O’Toole railed against a government “that chases bad trade deals with countries like China,” and the greed of the corporate “power brokers” who support those trade pursuits at the expense of workers at home.

“I believe that the goal of economic policy should be more than just wealth creation,” he said.

His position would make more sense if the current Liberal government had signed, or was pursuing, a trade deal with China. It’s not. It formally abandoned that idea last year, as Canada has grown increasingly critical of Chinese human-rights abuses, and the diplomatic and trade relationships between the two countries have deteriorated.

It would make more sense if the Liberals stood accused of being too cozy with big corporate interests. They’re not. They are frequently viewed as having an anti-business bent, and not without some cause.

 

No, the last government that was unapologetically pro-business, that placed the expansion of trade agreements at the core of its economic and foreign policy, was the last Conservative government. Mr. O’Toole is bashing away at the foundations of an economic strategy designed and built by Stephen Harper, the most revered figure in his own party.

It was during Mr. Harper’s tenure as prime minister (2006-15) that Canada reached trade agreements with 39 countries – the busiest era for international trade deals in Canadian history. Two of the most important pacts concluded by Mr. Trudeau’s government – with the European Union and the Trans-Pacific Partnership – were initiatives launched and to a great extent negotiated under Mr. Harper’s watch.

“To the trade agreements this government has signed, we’re going to have in the future access to over half of global GDP,” Mr. Harper boasted in the leaders’ debate on the economy during the 2015 election campaign.

By 2013, Mr. Harper had explicitly redefined his government’s foreign policy in terms of pursuing increased trade access to markets in the aid of private-sector business objectives – what the government termed “economic diplomacy.”

That included China, which marked an about-face for Mr. Harper himself. At least early in his tenure as prime minister, Mr. Harper talked tough to China on diplomatic matters while pursuing a pro-business stand on the trade and investment front – only to find that China was not only unwilling to separate the two, but could also harbour very public grudges (its own form of economic diplomacy). Eventually, he backed away from the rhetoric, while increasingly seeking to cultivate the huge Chinese trade opportunities on behalf of Canada’s business community.

Now listen to what Mr. O’Toole has to say about trade with China, and the private-sector interests who would covet it:

“These corporate power brokers care more about their shareholders than their employees. They love trade deals with China that allow them to access cheap labour, and they turn a blind eye to the conduct of the Communist Party,” he said in the video.

Mr. O’Toole’s China stand sounds like a return to early-term Mr. Harper, who, in his first year as prime minister, said he wouldn’t “sell out important Canadian values” regarding China in pursuit of “the almighty dollar.” We have certainly learned over the past several years that China can be a bully in the international arena, and a petulant one at that. Mr. Harper’s attempts to thaw relations with China didn’t get Canada very far, and things have become much, much worse under Mr. Trudeau. It’s hard to see how Mr. O’Toole’s apparent position – to stand on principle, and accept the economic consequences of disengaging with the world’s most important economy – could do much worse.

One question is how Mr. O’Toole’s willingness to single out China might be viewed by Canada’s large Sino-Canadian community, which makes up roughly 5 per cent of the population – but a much bigger share in key urban and suburban centres that could prove pivotal in the next election. There are a lot of first-generation Chinese Canadians who still have close ties to mainland China, including important business ties.

More generally, Mr. O’Toole’s message – challenging the benefits of trade agreements, rebuking big business for pursuing profits – positions the Conservatives in some very strange and unfamiliar territory.

This has long been the party in the corner of private enterprise. In its golden era under Mr. Harper, free trade was the cornerstone of its economic strategy. Now, the party prepares to fight an election with a leader who is openly expressing suspicion of both.

 

For long-standing party faithful, this is a major break from how they define Canadian Conservative philosophy. If this is the direction Mr. O’Toole is taking the party’s economic platform, he’ll have to climb over the legend of Stephen Harper to get there.

Trudeau informed me a few years ago that we would onl have a 10 billion dollar deficit. We were also informed that we should believe all women who claim being sexually harassed. He informed us that he would not be corrupt. We were informed by the man after he was elected about how racist we were as hiring and vaccination by race was implemented and we got to see his blackface videos. We are being informed now about how great the vaccine rollout was although those who died in the third wave due to delayed procurement are unaware of how well it was managed. It goes on and on.

 

The frauds on the left like you inform us of many things. Unfortunately, it is full of lies.

One can see the level of discussion they can expect from the left wing here. Keep that in mind when you vote. 

Vote to keep your money from the pigs at the trough sucking up taxpayers money. I said that years ago on this very forum. Few listened.

“ I'm getting old and I’ve worked hard all my life. I have made my reputation - the good and the bad. I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I have busted ass to get where I am in life. 


I have juggled my job, my family, and I’ve made countless sacrifices up front to secure a  good life for myself and my children. It wasn’t always easy and still isn't, but I did it all while maintaining my integrity and my principles. I’ve never put anyone beneath myself or denied help to anyone. I have friends of every walk of life and if you’re in my circle, it should be understood that I don’t have to remind you of what I’d be willing to do for you. 

However....

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. People who have sacrificed nothing and feel entitled to receive everything.

I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it themselves.

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which, no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talk like their opinions matter to the common man. I’m tired of any of them pretending they can even relate to the life and bank account that I have.

I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. I’m tired of the greed, everybody always wanting more.

I’m tired of being labeled as a racist because I am white. Because I am proud of my heritage, the same way black, Asian and native people are proud of theirs. 
I never stole any ones land, I never owned slaves and neither has anyone up my line of genealogy...

I’m tired of being told I need to accept the latest political fad, or politically correct stupidity, or blindly accept a group that would smile while stoning me because I won’t convert to their point of view - because I won’t cover my face. 

I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. Especially the ones that want me to fund it. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination, or big-whatever for their problems. 

No one is entitled to anything. You have a choice to work, a choice to stay off drugs - a choice to make something of yourself. I have nothing to do with your choice. That's all on you. 

You are entitled to what you earn.

I didn’t earn this for you. I didn’t put in the time, and the effort, and miss out on christmases and birthdays and soccer games for you. I did this for my family. I EARNED this life for my family. You could have done the same. 

You, and your government, have no right to reach into the pot I work so hard to fill.”

Some supporters have taken the “black pill” and believe the election was rigged against them because they won nothing.

Yes, one can argue the NDP splits the vote on the LEFT, but at least they have agreed to play in the same sandbox…meanwhile that narcissist Bernier and his party couldn’t even win one seat and screwed the country in the process.

Andrew Richter: Under the Liberals, Canada has effectively disappeared as an international actor

Special to National Post  2 hrs ago

 

Last week, the United States, United Kingdom and Australia announced a new defence and security partnership, dubbed AUKUS, which is intended to present a unified front toward an increasingly aggressive China, and demonstrate to other countries that the U.S.  intends to remain engaged in the Asia-Pacific region for decades to come. Not only was Canada not included in the agreement, but the federal government seemed to be completely blind-sided by the announcement — a reflection of our diminished stature on the world stage.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau immediately downplayed the importance of the agreement, saying it was merely a way for the U.S. to sell nuclear submarine technology to Canberra (which is indeed a central element of the deal). But Trudeau’s comments suggest that he does not appreciate the significance, or the long-term implications, of the new alliance.

AUKUS is a major development that has serious ramifications for Canada, even if the government would prefer not to think about them. In many ways, the new pact represents an American repudiation of the Five Eyes intelligence sharing alliance that also includes Canada and New Zealand, as this seems like an intentional refashioning of it into a smaller club.

The first issue to consider, then, is what the new alliance says about the relationship between the U.S. and Canada.

Unfortunately, the answer is clear: it represents an unmistakable sign that Washington has largely given up on Ottawa as a serious defence partner, having concluded that this country has absolutely no intention of living up to its NATO commitment to spend two per cent of gross domestic product on defence (Trudeau largely acknowledged this a few years back). The lack of spending severely limits what this country can do militarily, and no amount of defence sleight-of-hand or political spin can change that.

Secondly, it reveals that Canada’s passive approach to China has further led the U.S. to conclude that Ottawa simply cannot be counted on to stand up to Beijing. On issue after issue, Ottawa has demurred to China in recent years, a bewildering development given that the approach has clearly failed to modify Chinese behaviour (nor has it led to any positive developments regarding the two Michaels).

It should be noted, though, that Australia has taken the opposite approach, becoming increasingly vocal regarding the threat that China poses and the need for concerted action against it. Canberra continues to modernize and expand its military (the submarine purchase being merely the latest development), and in further contrast to Canada, has shown no willingness to allow itself to be bullied by Beijing.

But observers would be mistaken if they concluded that this pact was wholly unexpected. For years, successive U.S. administrations have pressed Canada to increase its defence spending and live up to its NATO commitment, all to no avail. Former president Donald Trump made alliance defence spending one of his central foreign policy goals, but he was hardly unique in making this an American priority, as virtually every U.S. president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has made a similar effort.

And yet, Trump’s repeated calls were met with a series of shrugs from the prime minister, and defence spending has been largely flat in the six years the Liberals have been in office. This record stands in sharp contrast to many of our allies, several of which have seen their defence expenditures rise substantially in recent years.

Similarly, U.S. officials have been pressing allies to get tough with China economically, and have specifically warned about the security risks of allowing the Chinese telecom company Huawei to take part in building 5G networks. While the U.S., U.K. and Australia have all banned the Chinese firm, Ottawa continues to dither in making a decision, and there is still no timetable on when one will be announced. Most observers believe this to be yet another attempt to placate Beijing.

The new alliance sends an unmistakable message to Ottawa regarding our waning importance. For this to change, Washington will need to see a demonstrable commitment to defence, not at some unspecified date in the future (a favourite Canadian stalling tactic), but now. Barring that, our bilateral defence relationship will continue to weaken.

Canada’s international influence has been declining for years, and the establishment of a new U.S.-led security alliance that intentionally excludes us is just the latest consequence of this. Indeed, this announcement was made in the midst of an election campaign, one in which Canada’s defence policies, and larger defence spending record, has been most notable for its absence (as has virtually any discussion of foreign policy).

It thus adds to the growing perception that Ottawa has effectively disappeared as an international actor, a development that few Canadians seem to be aware of (or care about). Other countries have noticed, though, and are adjusting their policies accordingly. As a result, I doubt many observers in Washington, London or Canberra will shed a tear for our ever-diminishing international influence.
