  2. Non college educated these days are also less likely to be backing antifa and the other Communist instigators of riot like BLM from the look of things. A non-stem college degree these days is junk. One man's opinion. BTW Mediabisfactcheck is also junk. Too biased. AllSides says The Economist leans left: https://www.allsides.com/news-source/economist Oh and everything the left pushes these days from the Russia to the Ukraine hoaxes to victim cultism, to homo or Islamo and other so called "phobias," to preachings of catastrophes like global warming is a conspiracy theory. They're

  3. Having spent a decade living in the North, and many more working in and out of there, you can not imagine just how accurate and common this is. I was once called to land for a medivac from way up North down to Winnipeg for a mother and child who I learned from discussing enroute were just going for a surprise to visit her husband. I could write a very large book on how deeply the first Trudeau changed life in the North with social engineering exploiting the aboriginal culture for votes. All at massive cost to taxpayers and individuals in business. Most Northern air services exist strictly

  4. Grossly overpaid professional athletes have the right to use their elevated positions to voice their opinions,right or wrong. I am exercising my right to tune out the world of professional sports. I learned that I'm not missing anything special. Baseball is a sport where it's possible to play an entire game and not break a sweat(like golf). NBA,NHL,NFL,no thanks,don't care anymore or was never interested to begin with.How about the hypocrisy of one Lebron James? He cries about the treatment of blacks in the US but willfully ignores what China is doing in Hong Kong. Money from the growing NBA/C

  5. You're citing old research. There have been a number of new ones done which shows just the opposite. Because of the pressure on managers to find racialized people, as well as women and gays to satisfy quotas such people are now routinely given preference. This is especially pronounced in universities both in hiring professors and teaching assistants and in putting forward racialized graduate students.

  6. As I have pointed out, Canada was almost entirely white until immigration was liberalized in the late 1970s. Almost everyone old enough to be in positions like this - which normally takes many decades of experience - is an immigrant. Most of them have imperfect English and lack the education to have gotten into the public service after arrival. Their kids will and are being hired and will work their way up over time - with merit.

  7. This is all just a distraction from the We scandal. Parliament is prorogued right now so that Trudeau can stay out of the limelight for a while and go on a pre-election virtue-signalling tour/spending spree.

  8. It's a shame that this gov't continues using race as a wedge and a divisive tactic; does mean 'no whites need apply' and if so, how does discriminating against one group solve discrimination. All hiring should be based on merit and qualifications, all things being equal then they can use race to be the deciding factor, but IMO, it should alternate. (between white/non white)

  9. The insults directed at Tam come from her poor performance on the job. Had she ensured our PPE stock was kept up, had she warned about this disease, advised ways to combat it, then I doubt anyone would be insulting her or demanding she be fired. But she did the opposite, failing in almost every way. Singh has spent much of his life obsessing over politics in India, working for Punjabi independence as a Sikh state, and representing Sikhs who have been accused of violence there. Accusing him of having duel loyalties, especially given his hesitation to offer up much if any condemnation of

  11. The difference between the RNC and DNC couldn’t possibly be any more clear now after seeing their conventions. The RNC’s speakers had truthful, meaningful, positive and insightful things to say, the DNC put on a spectacle that was the adult equivalent of a tantrum.
