I continue to dislike how Justin gladly hands out our $$$$ to other countries but I have to agree with the following as the virus will continue to spread world wide as long as there are millions of unvaccinated people to host it.  Lets hope other countries do the same. Re the $$$ that Justin is wanting to send to Haiti because their leader was killed, he should be sending vaccine instead. Haiti still awaiting first COVID vaccines, as cases surge - The Haitian Times

 Silly me….I thought sock boy would have at least made an effort to honour a fallen police officer that has dedicated 31 years of service to protecting Canadians, killed in the line of duty by a “new” Canadian…..I guess it didn’t fit his narrative of diversity is our strength.
He did find time to honour other citizens from a visible minority though…so touching

Islamophobia is real.’ Trudeau attends vigil for Muslim family killed in targeted attack

The leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party said politicians who exploit hate for political gains are “part of the problem.”

The prime minister scrapped plans to attend a donor appreciation event to instead attend the London mosque’s evening vigil for the family.

Like the treatment of veterans, this leader of Canadians has written off men and women who chose to serve and protect the citizens of the country he pretends to lead, all for the sake of political posturing.

“Our tolerance for risk seems limitless, and who can blame us? There’s a crown corporation whispering sweet nothings in our ear, promising us it’ll all be OK and  pushing an endless stream of sweet, sweet credit. Risky credit that’s underwritten by taxpayers, an increasing share of whom can’t afford their own homes, but are expected to act as backstops for banks and those with the means to build equity.”

Re: We just can’t ‘bear’ it; PM always ready for his close-up, column, July 11

If you have a strong stomach and are not eating breakfast, read the above Warren Kinsella column. Kinsella writes a scathing expose on the extent that Justin Trudeau will go to exploit the most tragic of events to satisfy his own ego and enhance his chances for a majority government.

The photo shown of Trudeau, kneeling with a teddy bear in an area where hundreds of Indigenous children are buried, tells it all. There’s no doubt that, prior to this photo, he rubbed his eyes with onion juice.

It’s sad commentary indeed to realize that we have such a person as the leader of once a great country. If Trudeau wins a majority in the next election, I will also kneel with a teddy bear at the burial site of a once great nation … Canada.

WHO’S THE RACIST?

Re: LILLEY: Trudeau pal Gerald Butts also calls church burning ‘understandable’, online edition, July 7

Each and every Canadian household should put a list on the fridge door listing all of the screwups that Justin Trudeau has made in the last seven years.

Likely the worst, and the one that should be at the top of the list, is his refusal to stop the flights from India when it was apparent that the Delta variant was the biggest danger to Canadians. That makes him directly responsible for the third wave in Canada. Before that, however, he gave away our PPE and failed to acquire any vaccine. That has caused Ontario to be the most restricted jurisdiction in the world.

Recent comments from Trudeau and Gerald Butts that the burning of Catholic churches is “understandable” were absolutely despicable. Also, no comment on the death of a Toronto police officer is also despicable. It goes to show the man has no class whatsoever, and it shows his disdain for our police. Then, of course, every time Trudeau is asked a question he doesn’t like, he accuses the questioner of being racist.

Justin Trudeau is going to try to ride into office on the upheaval in the U.S by trying to paint all conservatives in Canada as racist when, in fact, it is Trudeau who shows all the signs of racism.

Trudeau and the Liberals HAVE TO GO.

DAMAGE ALREADY DONE

Barring a revolt by small business owners and the folks in general, Dithering Doug has decided to go to Phase 3 a whopping five days early. This plan should have been instituted a month ago and does not go nearly far enough. Make no mistake about it: The economic damage has already been done and it will take years for the province’s economy to recover.

I fail to see the huge deal in this announcement. Other provinces have been light years ahead of this pathetic administration at Queen’s Park.

FLASHBACK: Canadian politicians who have praised the Cuban communist regime

July 12, 2021
website-jtcuba-696x365.jpg
 

Thousands of Cubans filled the streets of Havana over the weekend in the largest anti-government protest on the communist island in decades.

Chanting “freedom” and “Diaz-Canel step down,” protesters voiced their disdain of the government in light of the worst economic crisis Cuba has faced since the fall of the Soviet Union.

The Cuban regime’s lacklustre handling of the pandemic has resulted in a shortage of basic goods and a curbing of civil liberties and freedoms.

While many world leaders have voiced their support of the Cuban protesters, Canadian leaders have been relatively quiet.

Unlike their American counterparts who have condemned the Cuban government for grave human rights abuses, many Canadian leaders have fawned over the Cuban communist regime in the past. 

True North compiled a list of Canadian public officials who have voiced their support for the Cuban communist regime:

1. Justin Trudeau

website-cuba.jpg

When former Cuban President Fidel Castro died in 2016, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau could not hold back his tears. Trudeau released a glowing statement in memory of the communist leader.

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation,” Trudeau said.

“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.”

“We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”

Prior to Castro’s death, Prime Minister Trudeau visited Cuba and tweeted a photo of himself receiving a gift of a photo album from the Castro family, commemorating the Trudeau’s family visit in 1976. 

2. Jagmeet Singh

HE SAW A COUNTRY WRACKED BY POVERTY, ILLITERACY & DISEASE. SO HE LEAD A REVOLUTION THAT UPLIFTED THE LIVES OF MILLIONS. RIP #FIDELCASTRO PIC.TWITTER.COM/IB6O0ZRTXV

— Jagmeet Singh (@theJagmeetSingh) November 27, 2016

Upon learning of Castro’s death in 2016, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh took to Twitter to admire the communsit dictator. 

“He saw a country wracked by poverty, illiteracy & disease. So he lead a revolution that uplifted the lives of millions. RIP #FidelCastro,” tweeted Singh. 

3. Niki Ashton

THE WORLD HAS LOST AN ICON. HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE! "FIDEL CASTRO, LEADER OF THE CUBAN REVOLUTION DIES AT 90" HTTPS://T.CO/ECNSWDRJRA

— Niki Ashton (@nikiashton) November 26, 2016

When Castro died in 2016, NDP member of parliament Niki Ashton lamented the loss of an “icon.”

“The world has lost an icon,” Ashton tweeted. “Hasta la Victoria Siempre!”

“Hasta la victoria siempre” translates to “Until victory, always,” which was a revolutionary motto for communist Che Guevara.

4. Don Davies

SAD TO HEAR OF PASSING OF #FIDELCASTRO. HE STOOD AGAINST IMPERIALISM & WAS A MAN OF MONUMENTAL VISION, COURAGE, JUSTICE. HE SHALL BE MISSED.

— Don Davies MP (@DonDavies) November 26, 2016

Like his NDP counterpart, the MP for Vancouver Kingsway Don Davies also mourned the death dictator Fidel Castro.

“He stood against imperialism & was a man of monumental vision, courage, justice. He shall be missed,” tweeted Davies.

5. 2019 Liberal Candidate Heather Megill

website-megill.png

Coming to the defence of her party leader, the Liberal candidate for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry Heather Megill took to Facebook in 2016.

“Long live the Revolution,” Heather Megill wrote in a Facebook post in November, 2016.

PM should call election

... and stop campaigning on our dime

  • Calgary Sun
  • 18 Jul 2021

Justin Trudeau wants us to believe the unbelievable, that we aren't already in the middle of an undeclared election campaign.

He also denies he is campaigning using taxpayer dollars both as bribes to voters and to pay for his extensive travel of late.

“In an election campaign, you make promises about what you might do once you're elected. Right now, we're continuing the work that we got elected for in 2015 and in 2019,” Trudeau told reporters Thursday.

That's not exactly true and this isn't like the usual summer tours that all politicians embark on. What we are seeing is a series of calculated government spending announcements aimed at key voting blocs and key ridings.

It's not the first time Trudeau has been asked about his campaign-style summer tour. And each time he denies he's angling for an election.

Forgive me for being skeptical but I've seen this movie before, the Liberals are getting set to hit the hustings and ask for your vote.

It's not just the funding announcements — a steel mill in Sault Ste. Marie, transit in Calgary and Surrey, B.C., child care in B.C. and Nova Scotia, aerospace in Montreal — the party has told staffers to take vacation now and be back in Ottawa for early August. That's exactly when a campaign is expected to be officially called, even though the campaigning has been going on for the last three weeks.

The speculation is a campaign launch Aug. 8 with voting day taking place Sept.

13. That would mean a fairly standard 37-day campaign. Yet in reality, when you look at when Trudeau started campaigning — around June 28 — it will be closer to the record 78-day campaign of 2015.

When Stephen Harper launched the 2015 campaign on Aug. 2 with voting not taking place until Oct. 19, he was heavily criticized for forcing Canadians into a long campaign. Yet as Harper pointed out at the time, the campaigning had already begun.

“Everybody knows the election date and the campaigns of the other parties, as near as I can tell, have already begun,” Harper said at the time. “What we do by calling this campaign is making sure that we are all operating within the rules and not using taxpayers' money directly.”

Harper was blasted for his decision but his move put every party on the same footing. He could have spent another six weeks using the power of the government and the government purse to keep making spending announcements, but he didn't.

This year, all the leaders are out campaigning, but only Trudeau has the government jet and the government chequebook at his disposal.

You can't blame a politician for campaigning any more than you can blame a scorpion for stinging you — it's what they do. But that doesn't mean how this campaigning is happening right now is fair.

Trudeau knows we are heading to a campaign and he is using our money to fund his campaign.

What the PM should do is follow Harper's lead and call the campaign already so that every party is playing by the same rules.

FUREY: The Cuba protests deserve more attention

Thousands of Cubans are saying no to communism and partaking in the largest anti-government protest in Cuba right now.

As a result, the communist Cuban regime is cracking down on protesters – many have been arrested, many are reported missing and the internet has been shut down.

Why aren’t more people paying attention here in Canada? Where’s the outrage from our political leaders?

Interesting comments from a Indigenous writer, after seeing Trudeau’s picture with the teddy bear:

Quote

Seeing the prime minister kneeling at these gravesites was disrespectful in so many ways. I come from a strict traditional upbringing and we are not allowed to take pictures at our loved ones’ gravesites. Seeing these pictures circulated online and used for political purposes or sold as memorabilia made me furious.

We do not know how these children died, if they experienced horrific abuse or sickness, or if they died alone. When we pay our respects to those who have passed, we lay down some tobacco and say prayers for them. Laying a teddy bear and kneeling beside a deceased child while continuing to fight Indigenous children in court, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government is doing, is infuriating.

Maybe people are starting to figure this guy out !

If the headline is accurate, it is amazing that even in his wildest dreams he thinks we could so dictate..... 

Trudeau says Canada won't 'dictate' how U.S. relaxes its border restrictions

 

Trudeau says Canada won't 'dictate' how U.S. relaxes its border restrictions

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it’s not up to Canada to weigh in on how and when the U.S. decides to reopen its border to Canadians following Monday’s announcement that fully vaccinated Americans will be able to enter the country for discretionary purposes starting Aug. 9.

“I think every country should and does set its own border policies. We have been working with the United States to keep them informed to make sure that as much as possible our choices are aligned, but you will have seen, everyone will have seen that our countries took different approaches certainly during the beginning of the pandemic,” he told reporters on Tuesday.

Trudeau was responding to questions about why Monday’s announcement wasn’t made in concert with the U.S. administration to allow a similar relaxing of border restrictions for fully vaccinated Canadians.

“ Justin Trudeau is using your tax dollars to pay the same company hired by the Liberal Party to maintain their political database – Data Sciences Inc.

Data Sciences founder and CEO is Thomas Pitfield, Mr. Trudeau’s childhood friend.

It was reported that 149 Liberal MPs have taxpayer-funded contracts with the company including Justin Trudeau himself.

When Liberal MP, John McKay, was asked by the Globe and Mail about this contract, his response speaks for itself, “I haven’t got a clue. I can’t explain it. I vaguely recall once a year we write a cheque and it’s always been explained that it is within the ethical guidelines so we all kind of sign up for it and it goes into some oblivion.”

This type of unethical behaviour is what Canadians have come to expect from Justin Trudeau and his Liberal friends.

Canadians deserve better from their elected officials.”

Interesting read.

How Imperial Socialism Shattered the Roman Empire and Led to Feudalism

Socialism isn't new; it was even wrecking economies back in Ancient Rome.
 
he Edict was, until our time, the most famous example of an attempt to replace economic laws by governmental decrees. Its failure was rapid and complete. Tradesmen concealed their commodities, scarcities became more acute than before, Diocletian himself was accused of conniving at a rise in prices, riots occurred, and the Edict had to be relaxed to restore production and distribution. It was finally revoked by Constantine.
 

The weakness of this managed economy lay in its administrative cost. The required bureaucracy was so extensive that Lactantius, doubtless with political license, estimated it at half the population. The bureaucrats found their task too great for human integrity, their surveillance too sporadic for the evasive ingenuity of men. To support the bureaucracy, the court, the army, the building program, and the dole, taxation rose to unprecedented peaks of ubiquitous continuity.

As the state had not yet discovered the plan of public borrowing to conceal its wastefulness and postpone its reckoning, the cost of each year’s operations had to be met from each year’s revenue. To avoid returns in depreciating currencies, Diocletian directed that, where possible, taxes should be collected in kind: taxpayers were required to transport their tax quotas to governmental warehouses, and a laborious organization was built up to get the goods thence to their final destination. In each municipality, the decuriones, or municipal officials, were held financially responsible for any shortage in the payment of the taxes assessed upon their communities.

Since every taxpayer sought to evade taxes, the state organized a special force of revenue police to examine every man’s property and income; torture was used upon wives, children, and slaves to make them reveal the hidden wealth or earnings of the household; and severe penalties were enacted for evasion. Towards the end of the 3rd century, and still more in the 4th, flight from taxes became almost epidemic in the Empire. The well-to-do concealed their riches, local aristocrats had themselves reclassified as humiliores to escape election to municipal office, artisans deserted their trades, peasant proprietors left their overtaxed holdings to become hired men, many villages and some towns (e.g., Tiberias in Palestine) were abandoned because of high assessments; at last, in the 4th century, thousands of citizens fled over the border to seek refuge among the barbarians.

Zero jobs created for Canadian media from Trudeau's $595 million bailout: report

In recent years, 41 daily newspapers have disappeared, and 10,000 jobs have been lost, indicating a "crisis" for the struggling industry.

The Canadian Heritage Ministry admits that a half-billion dollar bailout to mainstream media and other newspapers did not create jobs as promised.

 

Despite the massive subsidy, staff counted a continued net loss of thousands of jobs. The findings contradict what publishers said, who claimed increased readership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Blacklocks.

"The decrease in advertising revenues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic led to service reductions and newspaper closures resulting in the loss of more than 2500 jobs," said a briefing note Improving Federal Support For Journalism. The department said it knew of "the hiring of 342 journalists" but only because wages were subsidized 100 percent under a $50 million Local Journalism Initiative.

Parliament in 2019 passed amendments to the Income Tax Act awarding a total of $595 million to cabinet-approved media on a promise of job creation.

The total amount planned, $595 million over five years, is commensurate with the industry’s current needs to preserve journalistic jobs both for print and digital newspapers that are still operating in Canada," Pascale St-Onge, president of the Fédération Nationale des Communications, said in 2019 testimony at the Commons finance committee.

The bailout included 15 percent tax credits to subscribers of media designated by the Canada Revenue Agency as "qualified Canadian journalism organizations" and 25 percent-a-year payroll rebates to a maximum of $13,750 per newsroom employee. Media executives who successfully lobbied for federal aid had promised to create jobs. "These measures have been called a bailout by some," testified Bob Cox, publisher of the Winnipeg Free Press. "I would suggest this crowd knows very little about the business of operating a newspaper." The corporation that owns the Free Press last year received a total of $6.2 million in aid, including wage subsidies and payroll rebates, the equivalent of 54 percent of its net income.

"We have been working for a long time to set up a program to support professional journalism," said then-Culture Minister Pablo Rodriguez: "The loss of even just one job is a tragedy." In recent years, 41 daily newspapers have disappeared, and 10,000 jobs have been lost, indicating a "crisis" for the struggling industry.

The heritage department briefing note also detailed unannounced changes to a subsidy program for magazines called the Canada Periodical Fund. Staff will waive a requirement basing grants on actual readership. "From 2021 the funding provided will gradually shift from rewarding print circulation to rewarding investment in editorial and journalistic content," said the note, which did not elucidate further.

Grant recipients have included Canadian Living magazine which received $1.5 million a year, Maclean's at $1.2 million, Reader's Digest at $1.1 million, Chatelaine magazine at $794,000, Toronto Life at $506,000, and the United Church Observer at $339,000.

Wow, talk about being out-of-touch.  The loss of "even one job" in the journalism field is a tragedy while the loss of 10,000 jobs in retail, transportation or the oil field and nothing but crocadile tears.
