    The first cop did not have everything under control . . . . the chief was in and out of the vehicle multiple times, could have emerged with a weapon, took his coat off indicating a possible assault on the cop, and he invited and resisted arrest. The chief is a dickhead.

    After Harper lost this was portrayed as an indictment of his government, his style, and his foreign policy by Liberals, including Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Michael Ignatieff, as well as the NDP, of course, and much of the media. Trudeau made it the central plank of his foreign policy, so much so that he bragged "Canada's Back" to an adoring crowd of Foreign Affairs bureaucrats and to the UN, as if the 'bad' days of Harper not doing our traditional role of always avoiding taking a stand on anything was now over and the world would love us again. Unfortunately for him he then went on to mismanage almost every important file through his endless virtue signalling. He made a fool of himself in India, and then blamed the Indians. He was all-but booted out of China when he tried to lecture them on womens and labour rights. The US government treats him with barely concealed contempt. The Russians laugh at him. The Saudis hate him. He pissed off everyone from Vietnam to Australia and Japan with the stunt he pulled at the TPP signing. What a joke this guy is.

    The chief threatened violence against the cop a couple of times, he went into a karate stance twice. He also forcibly grabbed the cop off his wife. The 1st cop didn't have much he could do until backup arrived. He seemed to have patience but he was actually just stalling for backup to arrive. Then the chief resisted arrest. The 2nd cop came in too aggressive, the force was a tad excessive but the chief needed to be subdued. If you resist arrest expect to get hit. If this were a white person nobody would bat and eyelash. Politicians have to say omg how terrible or wingnuts will call them racist.

    You are not. Police are not taught to stand by passively while a civilian initiates a move to invade another police officer's safety zone and then resist arrest. They err on the side of caution. In a situation like that a gun or weapon can be grabbed off the police officer to kill him or once close attack is initiated it may be too late to prevent harm. In this case the police officers acted as per their training. The only infraction was the intervenor using the term phacking . The Chief actually should be charged we with disorderly conduct, assault uttering a threat. This was a routine stop forcing expired plate. Chief Adam over-reacted. Had he stayed in the car, they might have only given a warning on the expired plate. All the people filming I guarantee you won't have the full episode. One of the reasons the police car is parked as it was is to enable the car camera to record the stop. The only reason this is in the news is because of Floyd. Now in every incident of any will have everyone comparing 8t and claiming 8tsxanother Floyd if the person detained is non white. This trivializes what happened to Floyd and other issues of abuse. Most people have no clue shat a safety zone is or whatbhappenxcshdn you penetrate it.

    I'm shocked you guys haven't jumped all over this. https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/pm-trudeau-s-mother-brother-and-wife-were-paid-to-speak-at-we-charity-events-1.5017697 The irony of getting paid that much, and giving that much taxpayer money (almost a billion) to promote volunteering is laughable. This is textbook corruption by the Trudeaus. Sadly with the country distracted by COVID and the Opposition without a leader, this probably won't effect him too much.

    Well-well-well. Just what I suspected and expected. I am surprised that not one member here went about wishing everyone to have a happy Canada Day? And why is that? All the leftist liberals here all think that Canada is such a great and wonderful multicultural country and is supposed to be full of happy Canadian people who say that they love their Canada but yet would not celebrate it here by saying to us all to have a happy Canada Day. Why is that? I can easily say without regret that I can not celebrate Canada Day anymore because the old Canada is no more. I think that I know why this may be so? Nobody really gives all that much of a crap about Canada anymore. I guess that we can thank all of our dear wonderful political leaders in Canada who have been trying to eliminate as much of the old British/European Canada and culture for decades now and who were the ones responsible for making Canada great at onetime. Today, it is not about the old Canada anymore. It's all about the new Canada and the rest of the world now. Canada has and is still being flooded with millions of way too many incompatible cultures that look at Canada today as a place where I can immigrate too, and take advantage of all of the free goodies that Canada has to offer. They like to pretend that they are Canadian, but in reality they are just empty words. If they loved their new home, called sucker Canada, then why do they start up a business in Canada and put their own foreign language on their business signs? Should those signs be in English only? Indeed, they should be. It's called assimilating into their new country and culture. The language of this country is English, not some other foreign language. On Canada Day approx. 1000 Canadians marched to the American Embassy in Ottawa, and started to shout "We Love Trump" on Canada Day of all days. WTH? I guess it is probably safe to say that those in that march in Ottawa do not much give a crap all that much about Canada or celebrating Canada Day anymore in Canada. I cannot blame any of them. But thanks to those two globalist comrades, old man, and young punk Trudeau's, they are the ones that started Canada on the road to ruin. They both have tried to make Canada a multicultural hodge-podge of a way too many cultures country, and they both have pretty much succeeded. Canada is not Canada anymore. It has now become a new Canada where the rest of the world and their foreign born cultures has become more important than our own Canadian culture of the old Canada itself. I am not sad to say that I am one with those protesters who have appeared to have had enough already of this globalist comrade Trudeau, and his continuous destruction of what was once a great British/European nation called Canada. So long old Canada, it's been good to know you.

    Anyone with a smidgen of sense knows how blessed they are to live in Canada. I'm also a dual citizen with Britain, but my first allegiance is to Canada, a very dynamic, safe, harmonious, and free country relative to most others. We're not staring in the rear view mirror imposing a class system or getting mired in conflict and violence. There's much to appreciate.

    At some point people need to take responsibility for their actions. This instance isn’t even close to being in the same ball park as George Floyd. But the world continues to have lost its mind, abandoning all logic and reason. I’m hoping this will pass soon.

    I disagree. I suggest you and hubby watch it again. The first cop had decided to arrest the chief. He grabbed his wrist and the chief was pulling back and cursing him. The second cop came rushing in and "tackled" the chief (not smashed him in the face), bringing him to the ground, which is standard police tactics for a suspect who is resisting arrest. The chief brought it on himself.

    Lately, I'm hearing the 2 sides described as those who believe in equality of opportunity versus those who believe in equality of outcome. The opportunity guys are about the rights of the individual and the belief they can decide what's best for them and theirs better than the government. That's not to say there shouldn't be any government but ideally no more than you need to keep a society functioning and anything more grudgingly. You can find what likes to be called classic liberals and what I'll call call classic conservatives on this side. And these two groups might not agree on everything but they can talk to each other. The equality of outcome guys believe in order to keep things fair equality has to be managed. More government is how you do it. And there doesn't seem to be a limit. This is where you find the "Progressives." The thing about 'Progressives' is they aren't actually progressive. Some classic liberals call them the 'regressive left'. I'm not sure that's accurate because you'll see them infiltrating and attempting to hijack both classic sides. Self identifying progressives don't actually fit the definition of politically "progressive" as commonly defined. If you'd like to see what I mean use the definition of progressive Wikipedia uses and find me a progressive. They don't exist. What you will find in the reality of the progressive movement, is identity politics. The balkanizing of society into perverted groups moving with twisted attempts at imagined equity, tribalistically chanting beliefs in their superior virtue, calling for a unified government management they believe must recognize their scattered priorities. They are prepared to dismantle what is out of some vague internalized belief in some vague external promise of Utopia on the other end with a benign all powerful government watching over them. I sometimes think of those calling themselves progressives as progressive socialists - even if they don't know it themselves. Other times I think of them as a virus currently infecting western society.

    Burn it all to the ground.. every bit of it....Beginning to see what fuels Dougies dislike for this nation was all about.....The left has been empowered because their is no one out there from the right has the leadership skills to stop all this BS, and some day it is going to meet critical mass.....so ya the faster the better.... What fuels the left, I really think their main objective is just to piss off the right, most of what they do makes no difference at all....I think we let them have their day in the sand box, stop giving them the satisfaction of getting under our skin...ignore them, one day soon "hopefully" they will be regulated back to the closets they crawled out of....and the right will spend their time undoing everything Justin and his merry gang of feminists have screwed up....and we can sit back and watch their heads explode one by one as things get back to normal.... What is so important about a street name in Mississauga....Is this the hill we make our stand on, some street here , or Ottawa, let them have their day in the sunshine, is this battle going to effect us in any way... Not today it is not... number /letter/ color all the street names, same with schools, hockey arenas, parks, who cares....I'M curious, what the history class is going to be like in 10 years time, "who was john a MacDonald... any way, " just some racist prick, that was one of our founding fathers, or does he even get mentioned in the new history..... To you leftist wingnuts I'm handing out boxes of matches for free....just send me your name...

    Exactly. I come from a long line of people who worked hard and built this country and it's not ok for some mouthy losers to come along and act like they were some kind of troglodytes that we need to be ashamed of. My last name isn't Trudeau.

    No I'm not, I addressed the point that your ignorance is your fault. The points you want addressed were addressed in the post you responded with when pointing out your ignorance. If you'd like to point out exactly what it is you don't understand I'd be happy to go over them again . Given your comprehension issues I'd need confirmation you actually know what hypocrisy means. Perhaps an example of where exactly you think I'm being hypocritical would help. Thanks.

    I don't see you even mentioning the pandemic and unfavorable economic conditions in the past couple of years. What do you expect Trudeau to do; or you thought Scheer was going to do better ......for the imaginary country or its diverse citizens? Every country is going through the same thing, increasing their national debt, which begs the question who the debt is to. My guess? The Marsians. What is 343 billion? I can tell you exactly how much that is: 6,305 tons of gold. And the gold is in the ground like it never existed. Not a big deal. Get it out of the ground and pay the f* Marsians. This should somehow illustrate to you the pointlessness of your national debt worries.

    The liberals and business types United, years ago But you'd never know it happened From the fighting to and fro See it wasn't as John Lennon sang 'Imagine', no - no ma'am It was because some business folks Built some factories in Vietnam It drove the price of jeans down And helped the Vietnamese The stock market went crazy And everyone was pleased Until the laid off factory folk In small towns everywhere We're roiled that their old lifestyle Had vanished in the air Those leaders then remembered That workers votes still count They blamed the loss on foreigners And that's the current account

    The condescending tone, pats on the head, and tut-tutting about left-wing sensibilities that accompanies most conservative attitudes in discussions involving the economy. The economy is drenched with the moral certitude of conservatism, notwithstanding the most important ingredient of our economy...the natural capital our planet provides. I'm a conservative who still can't understand what it is about conserving that fellow conservatives don't get. There's more to it than that, recall the suggestion that moderate Islamic people tell their extremes to stand down. Yes left-wingers need to do similar to their own which probably explains why I get cast as a con in my circle if I doubt that Jessica Yaniv is someone I need to take seriously. The thing we seem to have most in common here is that we're caught between a stupid and a dumb place.

    Seriously? I've been a conservative on this site for sixteen years now. Thomas Sowell is 90 and has been a conservative all his life? Glen Loury and John McWhorter aren't conservatives? Coleman Hughes isn't a conservative? Nor Larry Elder? These are all black American intellectuals and none of them have any time for your religiously inspired identity politics. Yes, to the far Left a conservative is one who never acts like a conservative. That just shows the depths of intolerance and hate they hold for anyone who has views to their right.

    This latest story tells me that Trudeau thinks he is above the rules and I would agree with that. His supporters,or perhaps more appropriately, his fan base, don't seem the slightest bit concerned about this newest apparent breach of ethics guidelines. Maybe they're not even aware of it. Let's face it,this story isn't going to get much exposure from the media. Think of how they covered Dean Del Mastro, for his campaign finance violation. Front page, in shackles. How about Liberal Marwan Tabbara? Assault and criminal harassment charges,barely a mention and nothing when it actually happened. The bar is set very low for Liberals isn't it?

    Who knows, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz or Isaac Newton's material might be soon declared unfit to be taught. Is their privilige that made then invent calculus and derivates amongst other things. Maybe we can start a debate about that and analyze it how we can make people comfortable ? Is shocking what some of these communists have done in one generation. The level of suspicion between the masses, turning family against family, going after traditions and customs, it is a game that has been played for hundreds and hundreds of years and one big sign of it is the attack on people with brains, the intellectual class by trying to create a one class system. This is what the universities are becoming in my opinion, pushing an old game with a new name. I remember to this day my grandma crying when she was talking about not eating for a few days or when waiting in line for 3 hours and were no eggs left. This is where mediocrity leads. My personal experiences is true, they make me irrational and BIAS most of the time but I learnt to live with it. We all have our flaws.

    There have been a number of climate activists who have outright admitted to having lied/exagerated. They too have been denounced as blasphemers by the movement. The latest of these is Michael Shelenberger, a lifelong leftist activist who has spent years fighting the the good fight on behalf of climate change and now is recanting. "On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. Until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly that’s because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an ‘existential’ threat to human civilization, and called it a ‘crisis.’ But mostly I was scared.” “I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.” https://nationalpost.com/opinion/john-robson-forbes-falls-to-cancel-culture-as-it-erases-environmentalists-mea-culpa/wcm/370ca87c-37c3-4376-8e95-78231ae5fd46/ Strident is basically no different from hysterical.

He failed a field sobriety test and then resisted arrest, stole a taser, ran away and when he pointed the taser at the police he got shot. MSM is quick to ignore the fact that he attacked police officers, they only see the end result and act like there was no good reason for the shooting. Too bad so sad Rayshard. You were an idiot, and now instead of paying for a DUI ticket you're pushing up daisies. CTV just said "He was running from the police and got shot in the back. CTV is pure filth.

    This is a kindergarten response. You've demonstrated you're entirely clueless on economics, and your response is "NO YOU ARE" followed by "I don't take kindly to ur big-city learnin' words!" My background, education and profession form the basis of my understanding on the topic. You have none. You know nothing about it. Every thought you utter on the topic is embarrassingly uninformed and amounts to little more than clueless one-liners. It doesn't matter what I reference. In your small little world, everything that goes against your fantasy-reality is blithely excused for being "minor" or "a lie" or "MSM fake news". It's a limp and pathetic mental crutch that leaves no room for intelligent debate, but you can use it on LITERALLY anything. Though it fails spectacularly to convince anyone else, it does help you make sense of the world and how everything you see and hear doesn't match up with your world view. I mean you ACTUALLY believe the Seth Rich conspiracy. It's some of the dumbest, most idiotic and poorly-sourced BS that's ever come out of Fox News, and you're telling us there's "video footage" of Hilary doing it herself? Really? Did you read that on 8chan, or from Q-anon? Fox News has retracted the story and are fighting a lawsuit on it, but please don't let those facts jar you out of your comforting version of reality. As for Rebel Media, no, it does not do anything important, and it does not serve any purpose other than to reassure people like you into thinking that you're less ignorant than you really are.

    If that were true it might be worth reading the rest, but it's not. The OP clearly states its premise: "The new narrative going around the world today is that whites are the slaver drivers of the human race and blacks are the sole victims. A lot of us have known for a long time that's just divisive bullshit" He's not arguing fairness. He's arguing truth. He's specifically telling you that the claim whites are the specific drivers of an ideology which created and perpetuated slavery against specifically blacks is bullshit. That has nothing to do with pride. It has to do with fact. If you have an argument against that factual statement present it. There are specific arguments that show you to be incorrect. They are, as you say, "selective" only in that they will specifically counter any argument you might make to further what the OP calls "divisive bullshit."

    We can agree Hitler was far more racist, given what he did, but Churchill’s many imperialistic statements have not aged well. From that viewpoint, Churchill was a man behind his time, a 19th century figure who lived to see his beloved empire destroyed and Britain become a very junior partner in the so-called special relationship with the US. Anyway, I don’t know why we are so concerned about the presence or absence of any racism at all rather than overt racist acts. We are all racist to some extent, all tribal. The trick is to control that tendency.

    There can be no doubt about it that this plandemic is all just an exercise hoax, and a good excuse for the billionaires to make billions more and buy up everything they can to be able to control everything they can and send us all down the globalist communist road to tyranny, and despotism. And what do we see which is even much sadder is the fact that our now dear comrade leader politicians, the controlled fake and lying media, and our so called health brainwashing officials are all in cahoots with those billionaire criminals against humanity. Our now new normal comrade politicians have sold us out for a few pieces of gold by allowing those criminal billionaires to have been allowed to pull off one of the biggest heists and stunts on we the people. Our comrade politicians have now shown us all as to just how much contempt that they have always had for we the people. Sad thing is that most of we the people are just to stunned and too stupid to see what is being done to them. They will believe their dear comrade leaders, their lying media, and the lying so called health officials without question. While those criminals are getting richer, we the people are getting poorer, and we are being forced into becoming good little communist trained seals with snitches thrown in for good measure. As long as social distancing is allowed to continue on, none of us will ever see or get our freedoms of speech and assembly back. Those traitors to we the people are just throwing little crumbs here and there at us all to try and appease the fools who will still believe their lies and bull shit. Wake up people, for gawd's sake. Your freedom is at risk. What the hell is wrong with you anyway? Are you that stunned and stupid? Just saying.

    Me also. I think the way to do it is for people to take on the task of criticizing their political cousins, even the extremists. For the politicians responsible for getting us through this, grandstanding and moralizing has to give way to matter-of-fact, ie. boring, discussions. There are no easy solutions, and moral condemnation of police, their unions, or whites in general is a feel-good-to-feel-bad exercise. There are ways to get through this, but that's more work and less clickbaity.

    POEM Author: Unknown Monk 1100 A.D. When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
