What a disgusting moment for Canada’s humanitarian record:

Quote

A Canadian veterans group is giving up its efforts to evacuate Afghans who supported Ottawa’s military and diplomatic mission in the country, citing staff burnout and a federal immigration system that is overburdened with red tape.

I’m sure this former Liberal MP would like to revisit his decision to have been an elected member of “Team Trudeau”…….

How could he possibly be proud of his contribution wrt to his military brothers?

Quote

Retired lieutenant-general Andrew Leslie, a former Liberal MP and Canadian Army commander, said Afghans are being murdered as they wait for their promised Canadian travel documents. For the past few months, he said he’s been unable to contact some of his Afghan friends and fears that they’ve been killed by the Taliban.

Mr. Leslie blames the visa delays and bureaucratic roadblocks on Justin Trudeau. He said the Prime Minister has failed to step in and order the process streamlined, as he did for Ukrainian nationals.

“It is inexcusable. We have a byzantine system of emergency response, vast centralization into the Prime Minister’s Office with folk who, in many cases, don’t have a clue what they are talking about,” Mr. Leslie said. “Unless the Prime Minister and Finance Minister are personally involved, there is not going to be change.”

What is more disgusting is the ability of people who have contributed nothing to this country (and likely won’t) to game the system and wander in at Roxham Road with the full support of the RCMP and our immigration system.

Canada is back……..what a joke. I am sickened every time this poser Trudeau opens his mouth representing what I used to call “my country”.

This Afghan rescue just continues to be a farce…funny if not the fact peoples lives hang in the balance……how can anybody be proud of this country and it’s present government?

Quote

Five months pregnant and stranded in Pakistan on a now-expired visa, a former military interpreter and wife of a Canadian combat veteran was refused permission to travel to Canada because officials were concerned she’d overstay her visa.

The interpreter, whom the National Post isn’t identifying out of concerns for her safety, made it out of a besieged Kabul last September with the help of her husband Eric, a former CAF member who completed two front-line rotations during Canada’s 14-year Afghanistan mission.

Eric turned to his local MP for help, who put him in touch with Immigration Minister Sean Fraser.

“I don’t know if he was supposed to get back to me or not,” he said.

“Nobody contacted me, so it just died — I don’t know what the next step is.”

 

His encounter with Fraser led to a frustratingly fruitless conversation with an IRCC caseworker, who promised him that his wife would be in Canada “within a month,” gave assurances that she would be exempt from customary medical exams due to her pregnancy, and encouraged Eric to apply for a Canadian travel visa right away.

“Then I got papers saying that I’m missing documents,” he said, explaining he’d already submitted the forms IRCC claimed were missing.

That was followed by information from a U.K.-based IRCC representative that the application can’t be processed without a medical exam — despite previous assurances she was exempt.

Frustrated but fearful of derailing the process, she underwent the medical exam last week — but was told processing could take months.

And to ad insult to injury…..how do liberal MPs explain their government to the constituents…these  are the guys supposedly in power!

Quote

Advocates spent years urging the federal government to accelerate the program, including a December 2020 letter to cabinet from Liberal MP Marcus Powlowski.

Co-signed by 22 fellow Liberal MPs and sent a full eight months before the Taliban retook Afghanistan, Powlowski’s letter was ignored by senior government officials.

As the Taliban hastened their advance on Kabul last summer, Powlowski renewed his plea — earning him admonishments from the PMO to mind his own business.

And it's not just the present government. The NDP have utterly destroyed their brand and the conservatives are useless.... I'm done with them. AWOL on most of the issues and at best a liberal lite brand. 

PPC from now on and I'll happily split that conservative vote and keep JT on his throne until 70 percenters break down and cry. I look forward to seeing where that threshold actually is. Either they like what they see or they're not paying attention, not sure which.

More pain is clearly required for voter REINIT... bring it on, and the sooner the better.

Events broadcast on Trudeau's Facebook page must be bilingual: language commissioner

 

MONTREAL — Events broadcast live on the prime minister's Facebook page must be accessible in French and English, according to the commissioner of official languages, who said the Privy Council Office failed to meet its obligations under Canada's language laws.

More than a dozen people complained to the commissioner about the lack of French-language translation of a July 6 news conference announcing the appointment of Mary Simon as governor general.

Complaints also involved the moderator’s choice to speak mostly in English, according to a preliminary report by commissioner Raymond Théberge tabled last month and obtained by The Canadian Press. 

“During a public event, like the press conference announcing the nomination of the new governor general, who is a key figure in Canada’s parliamentary democracy, it is crucial that everyone can participate and appreciate its importance in the official language of their choice,” Théberge wrote.

The Privy Council, which is the civil service department that supports the prime minister and his cabinet, provided logistical and communications services for the July 6 news conference. The office, Théberge said, failed to meet its obligations under the Official Languages Act.

Neither Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet nor the Governor General were faulted in the preliminary report because unlike the Privy Council, they are not “federal institutions” under the country's language legislation.

Théberge recognized that no simultaneous translation or subtitle service in either official language is currently offered on the Facebook Live streaming platform. But the commissioner said it would have been possible to include links — in both official languages — to the CPAC news channel, which was streaming the event and offering simultaneous translation in English and French.

The commissioner recommended that within three months of receiving his final report, the Privy Council put in place rules so that all Canadians "receive communications that relate to government information in the two official languages” during events streamed live on the prime minister’s Facebook page. 

The Privy Council did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.

The nomination of Simon as governor general led to hundreds of complaints to the language commissioner because she does not speak French. In response, Théberge's office launched an investigation into the nomination process for the governor general.

Simon, an Inuk leader and former Canadian diplomat, is the first Indigenous woman to be appointed governor general. 

This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 18, 2022.

Trudeau burns the jet fuel, flying equivalent of three trips around the Earth over past 10 months 

Of the prime minister's 127,147 kilometres of air travel since last June, 50,680 kilometres — about 40 per cent — took place in just the past seven weeks.

As energy prices skyrocket and Canadians are warned to make better decisions ahead of a looming climate crisis, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flew 127,147 kilometres aboard government aircraft over the past 10 months.

 

One year’s worth of publicly available flight data examined by the National Post revealed the prime minister logged the airtime — equivalent to about three trips around the Earth — between his first post-lockdown trip in June 2021 and this Wednesday, when Trudeau touched down in Waterloo, Ont., as part of his cross-country tour hawking his government’s 2022 federal budget.

 

The prime minister curtailed official travel during much of the pandemic, resuming with a June 8, 2021 flight to London, Ont., to attend memorial services for members of the Afzaal family — killed two days prior in what’s believed to be a hate-motivated attack.

 

Unlike other members of government and ministers who largely tend to fly commercially, Canada restricts the prime minister to military aircraft.

While aircraft operate under the callsign CANFORCE ONE whenever the prime minister is aboard, executive travel in Canada comes in one of two forms.

 

For domestic trips, the prime minister normally flies on one of a fleet of Bombardier Challenger 650s operated by 412 Transport Squadron based out of Ottawa airport.

 

International flights are handled by 437 Transport Squadron, who maintain a fleet of passenger-configured CC-150 Polaris aircraft — military versions of the Airbus A310 airliner — to transport the prime minister, staffers and the press around the world.

 

(It's) another one of those Trudeau contradictions

A MEMO TO THE SUCK-UPS

This morning, your National Post published a brief rundown by Bryan Passifiume of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s recent air travel logs. Passifiume estimates that Trudeau has flown 127,147 kilometres, which would get you one-third of the way to the moon, over the past 10 months. Roughly 40 per cent of the total has been incurred in the last seven weeks, although Trudeau's March visit to Warsaw to meet the country's president and visit Russo-Ukrainian War refugees would account for about 13,000 kilometres on its own. 

  

The preceding paragraph is naturally controversial, not because of the numbers in it, but because someone, anyone, is doing the math. When any newspaper attempts to sum up a prime minister's travel in the age of climate change panic and onerous carbon taxes, it is instantly greeted with howls of disbelief and annoyance. This is, after all, a large country! It's natural that a prime minister seeking to meet with his people everywhere would create an exorbitant amount of emissions in doing so! Would you want the prime minister to cower in Ottawa year-round, seeing Canada only from some miserable ivory tower? 

  

It is never quite clear why any of this reasoning wouldn't apply equally well to a business leader, or indeed an ordinary citizen of Canada with ambitions to experience his country; moreover, it ought to be remembered that the prime minister has an entire mini-fleet of aircraft available for his use and that the planes rarely lift off with anything like a full passenger load. Frequent air travel is a justified perquisite of an office like that of the prime minister. Since we have stated this, maybe we can set aside the complaints from those who object to the act of accounting for the prime minister's travel itself. If he is to set policy on climate change, it cannot be unreasonable to ask whether he is making the most efficient use of the privilege. 

  

The fact is that our prime minister is a genuine homebody, and this is part of the problem. The prime minister has logged a great number of air trips between Ottawa and Toronto, as well as Ottawa and Montreal. It is hard to see how that's doing the planet any favours. (Perhaps he has a friend in the federal government who can arrange for Bombardier to build him a private rail car?) He took one cross-country tour to press the flesh and talk to political clients, and we respect his need to take credit for federal spending in the hinterland, but he has a pattern of returning to Ottawa often after short stopovers. Maybe the Prime Minister's Office should organize a few more of these tours, instead of having the prime minister visit Edmonton, then Montreal, then Whistler, B.C., for a personal “springtime ski trip.” (Trudeau's notorious surfing vacation to Tofino, B.C., is also included in Passifiume's grand total: these are trips of which we wage-earning flunkies can only dream.) 

  

The inefficient trip to Whistler gets up NP Platformed's own nose in particular, we will admit. Let's stipulate for the sake of argument that being a ski enthusiast is, in general, not a crime against the planet. We don't have to stipulate that, and few environmentalists would agree to do so, but we will. 

  

However, the eastern half of the continent is amply populated with ski resorts, or so we Albertans are occasionally assured despite our own snobby suspicions. Is Whistler the only place a man and his family can ski? It certainly is if they're hoping to hobnob with the elite and have the kind of experience you would get elsewhere in the Rockies, at Vail or Aspen. If you're crossing a continent to ski at Whistler, it's not really about the special variety of gravity there. It's about showing solidarity with your class. And if you're defending that kind of thing against ecological critique, you're revealing your own values.

Starter cut out, the ignitors are off, and the fire is self sustaining. If you like this and want more, all you have to do is nothing.

If I wasn't already retired I'd quit.

Economists bracing for recession and four more interest rate hikes

Economists are warning Canadians that further interest rate hikes and a recession could be coming very soon.

A new survey by Finder which polled the country’s leading economists found that  most agree that the Canadian economy is heading for a recession and that people should brace themselves for its impact. 

Of those surveyed, a majority said that it would likely arrive within the first six months of 2023, while a quarter said it could take a year before it begins – coming in early 2024. 

New COVID-19 variants, interest rate hikes and inflation were some of the primary reasons behind their concerns. 

“Once everyone gets their fun out of their system (this summer), the crash will not be far behind, especially in the face of a subvariant that will place pressures on businesses and the health-care system again,” said senior lecturer of economics at Concordia university Moshe Lander. 

Statistics Canada recently reported that inflation had reached 6.7% in March – the highest it has been since January 1991.
