    It seems unusual that out of all those potential jurors, the defense was able to find 12 racists and the prosecution agreed to all of them.

    The Second Amendment has merely created a means through which violent people can obtain lethal ordnance and act on their dark intentions. The Second Amendment is a failed amendment – a hopelessly entrenched piece of legislation that has continually fallen short of its expectations and has contributed more to depriving Americans of the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness than to protecting those same rights.

    Trudeau is trying to obstruct the justice system for political gain.

    Armed thugs enter property to steal and start an altercation... one gets shot. What a shocker!! The kid didn’t deserve to die, and the farmer didn’t deserve to be charged with murder. Sucks all around I’d say.... but the whole racism angle is silly rhetoric. And the PM tweeting about it is in the same league as Trump. It makes it seem he thinks the farmer should be in jail for life and the jury was wrong in their verdict. The PM shouldn’t have gotten involved. ETA: the title of this thread is moronic. And conservatives who condemn Trudeau for his tweet but not Trump are hypocrites. As far as the tweet from Trudeau goes, it was fairly innocuous but still innapropriate.

    Beats me as to why anyone would want to own any type of gun other than a six shooter or a hunting rifle is beyond me. What more does the average American or Canadian need to protect themselves from harm or go hunting for food? Just saying.

    Now this is interesting. A Provincial Liberal cabinet member accused of sexual assault, right about the same time as the Brown allegations were made. Yet not a peep from Wynne or Trudeau regarding this. They wouldn't be biased in their outrage would they? It's funny how no one heard anything about this until now, almost as if someone was trying to keep it quiet, that can't be true though. After all, everyone knows that Liberals are shining paragons of virtue. http://torontosun.com/news/provincial/ontario-liberal-cabinet-minister-sexually-assaulted-woman-lawyer?fb_comment_id=fbc_1752417928152429_1752497004811188_1752497004811188

    Sure it is. There is nothing to be embarrassed about re: Western Culture. It's simply the best.

    Rod Rosenstein: “No allegation that any American was a knowing participant” Rod Rosenstein: "No allegation in the indictment of any effect on the outcome of the American election." What will the Dems do now

    Wynne is a pathological liar. She'll say and do anything to stay in power and defend her crooked Liberal party. This is not over, the truth will out.

    Nope...it was very much Trudeau who saw political opportunity to exploit. He is sleazy that way...the Liberal way.

    Far worse than that, Trudeau POLITICIZED the verdict of the jury.

    On the other hand it could be great for the country. If he goes too far down that particular rabbit hole he could be removed. That would be a win win for Canada.

    Never waste an opportunity to use "Trump" for an issue in Canada....textbook example that will not reduce CTV culpability.

    True, he may not have been drunk. Inebriated is another story. Lately he does seem to be losing the thread, even more so than his usual state of confusion.

    I think Conservatives have realized that running on social issues are vote losers. It's a contradiction to believe that government should stay out of people's lives but look to government to chime in on how people conduct their personal lives.

    Most reasonable people think “that Coyne is pretty savvy, even if I don’t agree with everything he says”. That quote shows how unreasonable your position towards anyone with a different opinion than you is.

    Trudeau confronts woman at Town Hall over her use of the word "Mankind"- (Young woman)'We came here today to ask you to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislations so that it can also be changed because maternal love is the love that's going to change the future of mankind.' At this point, Trudeau interrupted her and said: 'We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind because it's more inclusive.' Link Mr.Trudeau. "peoplekind" is not a real word.

    If I were writing a letter now, I would ask him why he insulted the italians and greek by putting them in the same boat as returning ISIS fighters. How dumb can this guy get.And how anyone could even think of voting for him again.

    In Edmonton, addressing a vet who lost a leg in Afghanistan: “Why are we still fighting against certain veteran’s groups in court? Because they are asking for more than we are able to give right now,” Trudeau said Omar Khadr....a convicted murderer...10 million dollars....10 Million...

    Yes....if choosing to be grammatically incorrect to be politically correct, why not go all hip-hop on it ? "In all we be like straight up command" Just say Drake wrote it.

    These Christian charitable groups spend a lot of time, effort and money to help people in need. They never ask for attestations or ask what a persons belief system is before giving their time and money, but I could imagine the outrage if they ever did.

    You have to realize that social justice warriors, while they have a deep and almost sycophantic respect for most religions, loath Christianity, everything about it, and everyone who believes in it. So if this pisses you off, that's fine with them. In fact, the more ways they can find to express their disdain and contempt for practicing Christians the happier they are.

    Yes some people still put their hands on someone's shoulder or hug them and it will have to stop unless you are Justin and Omni meeting for a photo oprtunity. Then they and Seamus and Bill can patt each other on their bums and call it football.

    Are you saying that the PM meets with any tom dick and harry, shit where do i sign up, love to have 10 mins with the PM to discuss stuff.....or are you saying that the PM seen a opportunity to get in some free press, score points with his liberal world loving , we sing kumba and blow kisses to everyone crowd, and HIS advisors thought it was a good idea again.........and less than a month of being back home in Canada he Mr boyle is already up on charges....some of them serious....i can't wait to hear what he's been up to on the 1/2 year anniversary maybe he'll just explode in some mall... He is another prime example of WHY these terrorist travelers, should be dealt with in the desert no longer allowed to come home...

    Four indictments for what, lying? And whatever Manafort did before he met Trump. The "lying" happened after the investigation began, so what that say's is that they haven't actually found a legitimate crime. IOW, without the investigation there is really only one potential crime and it has nothing to do with Trump. After one full year, dozens of investigators and millions of dollars spent, Mueller should be embarrassed. He's clearly gonna double down and stay with it until he has at least something, maybe it will be 10, 15 or 30 people indicted for lying - who knows, but they clearly have nothing on Trump.

    Islam is a religion and a political doctrine. It isn't a skin colour nor race of people.

    It has nothing to do with owning weapons so you can shoot people who knock at your door either. It's entirely about a well-regulated militia.

    Bull shit. Anyone can say a legal system is flawed simply because you don't like the legal decision a jury makes. That does not make it flawed however. You mistake not approving of a jury's finding with a legal system being flawed. Go on finish it. What is flawed about our justice system. What a sweeping statement. That's one big system you call flawed. I doubt you even have a clue what the courts are in Canada, who has jurisdiction over them, what their rules of evidence and procedure are. Until you do, your partisan knee jerk reaction to a decision you do not like does not mean the system is flawed. Good luck explaining why its flawed. You haven't a clue how the system even works given you applaud politicians who undermine the integrity of the independence of the legal system. Also the fact you refer to it as the "justice" system and not legal or criminal system says a lot. As a lawyer the first thing I have learned is that when laymen use the word "justice" they mean "revenge". Tell you what. I could spend hours discussing ways to improve our legal system but throwing it all out in the wash as you have with one foul pronouncement is b.s. Compared to the majority of the world we are damn lucky to have the legal system we have warts and all.

    Then don't go out of your way to ruin a man's life. . . unless you're alleging a crime was committed. Her not being underage is a big deal in this case. They're a victim of hate mail because people think Brown is being railroaded and it's starting to look like he was.

    Projecting again... Again...the Palestinians as a people were created at 1967's Khartoum Conference of the Arab League. Before this "magic event", they were called Egyptians and Jordanians respectfully.

    AND, as to the comments against the American way, America is NOT a cult. They DO have people who believe in SEGREGATION laws too. BUT, they are VOLUNTARY and DO NOT IMPOSE laws that favor people based on select races. Of course this too has degraded in the U.S.. But this is IN SPITE of their Constitution with its First Amendment. And it proves that given the fact that racists and sexists STILL have more power in a voluntary society, when it is forced upon people from above, our type of system is worse. I rode my first horse on a Cherokee Nation in South Carolina. I remembered how welcomed we were as EQUALS to them. Here in Canada, you can't do this. The reserves are ONLY for those who have a genetic linked inheritance here. In the U.S. I can CHOOSE to become a member of the Cherokee Nation. If I was adopted by an Aboriginal family, I'd only 'own' the culture that my family opts to have as traditions without laws that conserve them. So if you got something against the U.S., it is only because you can't avoid the POWERS of those cults that have collective BELIEFS in their Genetic roots voluntarily. But they are NOT forced in laws like they are here.

    There is no innuendo. The Conservatives are simply calling out Trudeau and a couple of his ministers for making negative comments about the judicial system or trial, which is political interference.

    A military parade does not showcase one man's ego, but is a display of power to those enemies who only understand the most primitive form of communication, in order to act as a deterrent. Better a parade than a war.

    Like I said ,it is not a word and all it does is divide the country even more. So I will ask you, why did he just pick just Islam, why not all religion. It is to curry favour will them, that is all. Google Imam preaching hate in canada, it might shock you. I wonder what the Italians and greeks think with justin putting them in the same boat as returning ISIS fighters.

    Nonsense....a sell off was expected and desired to cool off over-bought conditions and inflated P/Es....planned interest rate hikes and inflation have far more impact than your hatred of Donald Trump in another country.

    I am not arguing against your claim that its harmful. I am arguing against the notion that we, as individuals or a country, have the right or even obligation to determine for these women, what they should or should not wear. If a woman says its her choice to wear it, we should respect that, imo. Calling her extremist or telling her she has no right to be in Canada because of what she is wearing is wrong, imo.

    If it is not something that should be changed then the word "sons" should not be in there at all. It was changed to include that word a century or so ago.

    Congress exposes 'memo' after Trump declassifies...again...Democrats haven't been this angry since when the Republicans freed all their slaves. FISA warrant was based on bogus dossier and Yahoo fake news.

    1. I haven't noticed any withholding of information about the burka et al. It is controversial around the world, including in Islamic countries. 2. I suspect your assumption is that if these women were informed of its misogynistic implications, they'd toss it. Given that in the West especially this information is pretty well broadcast, I think most Muslim women are pretty well informed. How could they not be?

    The idea that CTV becomes judge makes me uncomfortable. There is no reason to believe media outlets are fair or that their investigation is even valid. They are not professional investigators, and the people they are talking to are not compelled to tell the truth. Again I am not insinuating this story is a lie, it is a question of protecting any person and giving them the right to due process. Today we live in an era where your life can be destroyed by a headline, or sound bite.
