  1. Having caused almost all the recent fighting in Turkey, the Turkish Islamist sultan Erdogan is now threatening to send millions of refugees into Europe. Apparently he wants bigger bribes to keep them where they are. The Greeks have responded by closing their border with Turkey as mobs of Muslims gather on the other side demanding to be let in, throwing rocks and iron bars. Others are getting around the barricades one way or another, or crossing the sea again, eager for the good life they believe awaits them in the land of milk, honey, and welfare. Notice how the CBC shows pictures of poor

  2. Or so says a new poll. Apparently 69% of Canadians feel we're 'broken' and not heading in the right direction. The poll was mainly about indigenous issues, but I would argue we're broken in many other ways, too. Certainly the poll mentioned that we have far too much partisanship (82%), but if it had asked I think there would have been strong support for the view identity politics are responsible. Now we've always had identity politics to an extent. I think what we have different now is this 'hierarchy' of victimhood which seems to convey whether one has rights to complain or demand accommodat

  3. I doubt this strike has made national news, but obviously, as the Co-op refinery in Regina provides most of the fuel for SK and the MT/ND areas to the South, the severe interference with access to the site for fuel haulers has become a serious disruption to the economy. First, that has been a LOT of intimidation, harassment and even assault on people trying to enter either to operate the plant or to ship product: https://globalnews.ca/news/6441876/14-co-op-picketers-charged-with-mischief-unifor-escalates-boycott/ The courts felt that the insolence of Unifor was intolerable, so a hun

  5. Stop saying, “What me worry?” Your house is on fire: high taxes, mega land claim payouts, blocked legislature, impossible resource development conditions, spendthrift premier who can’t satisfy the insatiable forces he unleashed. It’s an unmitigated mess with no winners. No thanks. Count your lucky stars for BC’s temperate climate and Asian wealth. BC is a good place to spend money, not so much to earn it.

  7. Absolutely, there is an over consumption problem not an over population one.

  8. One thing is clear: Andrew Scheer would have screwed this up completely. Trying to appeal to his idiot base would have messed things up for a generation. Fortunately, cool heads prevailed.

  9. Environmental protestors are dumb as a rock. What happens to environmental protection when you destroy the economy? If the pipeline doesn't privide jobs and stability to Northern BC, people will just find other ways to work. They will start clear cutting the coastal rainforest, just to try and reduce unemployment in their towns. So what would you rather, and oil pipeline or clear cutting of the temperate rainforest? What when people are too poor to buy food, they will just hunt and clear the animals out. We need a strong economy so we can invest in environmental technology, but when the econom

  10. I just turned on the news to try and get a Covid-19 update.... What do I see, hundreds of Native protestors trying to stop a mining convention in downtown Toronto. We're in a pandemic. We need to pass the War Measures Act, and get these clowns off the streets, instead of hanging around in large groups spreading the virus. It looks like Justin Trudeau is aiding and abetting these protestors. If this nonstop protesting doesn't stop, we could be headed for a civil war. The people won't put up with it, especially during a national emergency.
