  1. Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    Gerald Butts continues to defend compensation to be paid to his and Trudeau's friend Rana Sarkar. According to Butts, Sarkar has accepted a substantial pay cut to accept the position of Consul General to San Fransisco in order to serve his country. Oh, well, that makes it all right then.
  2. Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    What is it that compels some Canadian elected officials and their minions to be so generous with taxpayers money? Is it that the Canadian treasury offers them unlimited access to funds they get that they don't know the value of a buck? Is it that this access to other people's money goes to their head? What is that they don't give a whip about how they spend taxpayer's money? http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/new-diplomat-with-ties-to-liberal-party-making-nearly-double-the-post-s-official-salary-1.3554537 Yes, yes, Sarkar and Butts are friends. But does that mean that Sarkar should command twice the pay that the position normally pays. I can imagine the perks that accompany this cushy appointment. Then we have Trudeau, presumably approving of this nepotism. The more I look at this, the more I think Trudeau has lost control of this government.
  3. The case of Jeremiah Perry

    Which is why I don't trust school boards and teachers when it comes to taking students on field trips. School boards and teachers should stick to a job description that is limited to teaching our children in the classroom.
  4. The case of Jeremiah Perry

    The OPP is conducting a criminal investigation. This case if far from over. https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/08/21/opps-criminal-investigators-are-now-probing-the-drowning-death-of-torontos-jeremiah-perry.html Let's hope that wherever this investigation leads, no more children will die needlessly.
  5. Refugee crisis escalating

    All good question GostHacked. Watching Ralph Goodale now on Power and Politics. It appears some "irregular" refugee claimants have arrived at the border with fake documents. Goodale alluded to the fact the feds are looking at the possibility of human trafficking. Just "alluding", not being clear and straightforward as has been the case with Liberals on this file. There was also an incident of a box of confidential documents disappearing from the temporary CBSA office at the Lacolle border. This thing is looking like a mickey mouse operation which could explode in Trudeau's face. http://www.journaldemontreal.com/2017/08/17/saint-bernard-de-lacolle-des-documents-confidentiels-disparaissent-a-la-frontiere
  6. Refugee crisis escalating

    Trudeau has further muddied the waters by declaring that 'irregular' refugee claimants will be subject to Canadian laws and that acceptance is not guaranteed. https://ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCAKCN1B00M9-OCATP Nothing like a little ambiguity to confuse people.
  7. The Left invites terrorists into our home

    Babies can't vote until their late teens. Refugees and immigrants result in instant votes.
  8. Refugee crisis escalating

    If the government should have to bump public servants from scheduled training that will do wonders for morale within the public service not to mention the negative impact on ongoing operations.
  9. Refugee crisis escalating

    My gut tells me Trudeau is dancing to the tune of his cabinet. He's simply not smart enough to develop and formulate policy let alone articulate it. This Liberal government is of the same mindset and that is, as you point out, to get re-elected.
  10. Refugee crisis escalating

    I prefer "wine wine wine". You should try it sometime. It might help you develop a new perspective on life.
  11. Refugee crisis escalating

    Asylum seekers (not "illegal" according to government authorities but "irregular" cause they did not cross the border at the official border crossing) keep pouring over the border at St-Bernard Lacolle. So much so that a large number are being bused to the NavCan centre in Cornwall, Ontario. http://navcentre.ca/about-us http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/cornwalls-asylum-seeker-capacity-with-tent-city-in-place-about-900 It's laughable. The feds have launched a wide ranging publicity campaign in Canadian consulates in the US and elsewhere discouraging would-be asylum seekers from crossing into Canada at irregular border crossings. I would not doubt asylum seekers housed temporarily in Canada are phoning their relatives and compatriots in the US and Haiti to "come on down" this is paradise on earth, and the shopping is fantastic.
  12. A different kind of troll

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flaming_(Internet)#Flame_trolling There are times when "flamers" run out of original trolling material and will repeat the same message incessantly. They are easy to spot. The best response is to see it for what it is...lame comedy.
  13. Nationalist Groups in Canada

    https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/08/18/far-right-anti-racist-groups-plan-dueling-protests-in-quebec-city.html Why is Quebec city granting a permit to opposing groups on the same day?
  14. The case of Jeremiah Perry

    This is so tragic. IMO it could have been prevented. The teachers involved are directly responsible for this boy's death. I ache for the parents. I am opposed to these field trips organized by schools for a couple of reasons. There are too many teachers who lack common sense when it comes to organizing activities outside the classrooms. In addition, there is peer pressure involved. Too many students thinking of not signing up for these trips fear being labelled a "nerd" and will sign up simply to be accepted by the group. That is where matters can go horribly wrong. Those teachers need to be punished accordingly.
  15. There is nothing to discuss

    You're new here. Give it time, threads like this will seem normal to you in no time.
