  1. My skin is the colour of this text. Victim? Don't ever refer to me as a victim. The 'woke' can go fuck themselves.

  2. The lab leak theory has turned out to be the most widely accepted theory of the origins of coronavirus. So China literally infected the world with a virus, and kept it quiet when they could have prevented much of the pandemic. It’s time for a covid tariff on everything imported from China until they’ve paid off their damages.

  3. I'm reminded of a Liberal MP from Quebec who represented a largely Anglo riding in Montreal Emmanuella Lambropoulos who was on the official language committee and had the TEMERITY to ask for evidence that French was in decline in Quebec. She was pilloried from all corners, subjected to insults and sexual harassments throughout Quebec's media, and removed from the committee by Trudeau. Oh, and O'Toole, maintaining the Conservative Party's tradition of being crawling, spineless ass lickers towards Quebec, also attacked her. There can never be any questioning of the idea French is threatened, and no demand for evidence. So if Quebec wants to change the constitution so it can intrude its language laws into federal jurisdiction all federal parties will enthusiastically applaud. The Liberals, NDP and BQ because they agree, and the Conservatives because O'Toole has no spine, no pride and no dignity when it comes to sucking up for votes from various identity groups. All three have already said they fully support Quebec's right to change the constitution to 'protect' their language. Remember when Doug Ford cancelled that French language university the provincial Liberals had offered just before the election? Remember how everyone lost their minds? Every federal politician was outraged, as was the national media. Quebec politicians cried that this was an example of how bigoted Canada was towards Francophones. Trudeau finally offered to pay for the thing. Well, it opens this fall, and last report I saw a few months back said it had 19 applicants and was desperately offering scholarships to international students. Can you imagine how Trudeau, Singh, and O'Toole would react if Ford tried to bring in a language law like this? They'd lose their minds. Their heads would explode from all the outrage spewing out of them. Yet according to the article 95% of Quebecers speak French. According to Stats Canada only 93.5% of Ontarions speak English. So I guess a draconion language law is fully justified to protect English! https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-quebecs-anglophone-minority-is-a-target-once-again-and-no-one-is/

  5. The way things are going on in communist Canada today, the Charter of Rights is nothing more than a piece of ass wipe paper. Our rights and freedoms are being violated every day because of this Covid 1984 hoax. All the Covid restrictions in place today are in violation of the COR, but yet, ask our comrade politicians if they really care about our rights and freedoms. To your face your welfare bum recipients will say yes to our rights and freedoms and that they must be protected. But behind your backs you get the communist up your ass COR anti-rights and freedoms finger. Hello? Covid equals communism. FREE THE FACE. ABOLISH THE MASK.

  6. We need to wake up to the reality. There's any number of places in the world that did not have several months long lockdowns, kept the spread under control and didn't need to cry and shout in turns and repeatedly. Achieving that involved: professionalism; competence; responsibility; and efficiency though. Now, how many of these terms can be applied to this province, and country policy so far?

  8. Yes, the free exchange and communication of ideas and knowledge should stop. These people are not even government-sanctioned, for crying out loud. It's great to see what a conservative you've become. and stop taking cues from those who are blissfully unaware of many things!

  9. the government subsidized media sycophants are clearly the worst media the government tries to suppress because they don't drink the government kool-aid are clearly better, despite their faults claims to the contrary, talk about partisan nitpicking I'll take clearly partisan media who admit to being partisan over clearly partisan media who refuse to admit to being partisan while claiming the mantle of "objective journalism" any day of the week

  10. those are the actual numbers just because people you disagree with can use those numbers to undermine your preferred narrative doesn't make them incorrect % of GDP is a far better measure of the scope of the military relative to the economy than nominal military spending facts don't care about your feelings

  11. Leftists need to stop designing economic policy as if every business is Amazon or Walmart. The vast majority of businesses are small businesses. They employ the vast majority of Canadians.

  12. I’m neither right nor left. I don’t care about someone’s sexual orientation or skin colour. I hold fast to MLK’s idea that we judge people by the content of their character, not superficial markings. I don’t know what you’re referring to with regard to Tam or how she entered the discussion. My whole point is that we shouldn’t create policies that create winners and losers in a zero-sum game. Favouritism is wrong. Merit is what counts, with the understanding that the strong help out those who can’t help themselves. That’s a different position from collecting money from taxpayers and redistributing it and certain benefits to people based on skin colour or ethnicity.

  13. I appreciate your sincerity and research. These issues were discussed at length in past threads. I don’t question the right of anyone to try to make a land claim through the courts. However, there are wide swaths of BC and Canada as a whole that were neither ceded nor claimed by anyone. Peoples roamed, warred, and set up temporary settlements over thousands of years. It wasn’t an issue in early European settlement for more than two hundred years except in pockets of Acadia and New France where the settlements encroached on traditional hunting and fishing grounds or trails and river communications. The issues arise during periods of mass migration later on, such as during the Potato Famine in the 19th century. Well the people never stopped coming, and the newcomers were no longer just from the colonial mother counties of Britain or France or the US (Loyalists). Treaties were formed to deal with the facts on the ground, often incompletely or inconclusively. Reservations were an attempt at preserving an anachronistic way of life that Indigenous long ago mostly abandoned except in the far North and remote areas where immigrants were in the minority. Yes there was a suppression of native culture in the name of the majority population’s notions of progress at the time, including public education which was seen by the mainstream as a leg up and way out of a hard life for the agrarian and industrial masses. By today’s standards of course the early government had a narrow idea of public education, but compare that to the alternative at the time. Context is everything. Courts will consider land claims on the merits of the evidence and people who bring them. I’d say that it’s very hard to ascribe title or ownership of lands that were unclaimed hundreds of years ago to people alive today, to remove or buy out the mostly recent immigrants who occupy them, and then to expect that health, education, and infrastructure on these lands should be paid for by the taxpayers who don’t own or live on them. To rephrase an old chestnut, No representation without taxation (rather than no taxation without representation). People are not truly independent if they can’t earn their own money, collect their own taxes from this income, and take care of the infrastructure and institutions on their land, such as schools and hospitals. To pretend otherwise is a lie. The reserve system can sometimes be a taxpayer funded theme park where status Indians and those claiming Indigenous blood get free land and funding without having to make financial sacrifices for the upkeep of their own territories. Now, that’s not all of them. There are independent territories with viable resources and self-government. There are wealthy reserves. There are also many reserves that are not self-sustaining. On the whole the system is dysfunctional, but the decision to change it must come from the Indigenous inhabitants, and if it’s about simply sending more outside money from taxpayers, the public won’t support that.

  14. If a person criticizes Trudeau because he has nice hair, was a "drama teacher", or wears bright socks, that's petty and makes the criticizer look like a partisan who can't come up with actual criticisms. If a person criticizes JT because he lacks ethics and has been investigated, that has teeth.

  15. So your basic point is that an economy must have 'winners' and 'losers', and if it does not, it means that the 'winners' are being 'stolen' from by the 'losers'? Am I reading that right? Walmart owners are making money hand-over-fist, paying their workers less than a living wage and baking billions. The government (aka taxpayers) get to step in and subsidize the workers that Walmart can't 'afford' to pay. Who's 'stealing' here? Is there anything wrong with taking some of the 100s of millions the Waltons earn and using that to pay their workers a wage high enough that they don't need government welfare? Is that stealing from the "competent"? "Watered down version of Poi Pot's imprisonment" sounds like the usual right-wing hyperbole. Yes, what does race/sexual orientation have to do with technical prowess? Having asked that, perhaps you can explain why the right spent months attacking Dr. Tam as a transgendered person because they didn't like her politics. Whether or not she is transgendered (and I have seen no proof) would be irrelevant to her education, training and knowledge - so why was the right so willing to bring that up every opportunity they had to mock her, to impugn her character and her skills. Yes, so why does the right bring up fake issues, such as the color of Trudeau's socks, his hair style, the gender of Dr. Tam. Why can't they get behind addressing climate change, why can't they let adults choose who they want to love, whether or not to have children, worship how they want and dress how they want.

  16. Not learned you meant? There was SARS-1 in 2002 and MERS in 2006 both with one of the highest casualties in the developed world. This is the third in a row and the question in order is, can they be learned, ever and at all?

  17. Thankfully, the guidelines for the summer put forth by anti-science Tam, isn't something provinces have to follow. I suspect that provinces will adhere to the actual science and come up with their own policies, which will be much less restrictive in June, and especially July and August.

  18. These allegations are a joke. “Exposed himself” as a student in 1989? This is actually what constitutes a complaint that can destroy an esteemed career. What a sad state of affairs. The military is a shadow of its former self. Another victim of the inquisition. https://apple.news/AZQfNlvz1SyyES4dAnTByEw

  20. It's pure social engineering and full of lies and exaggerations. It's all about deception to get votes. There is no "systemic" racism. Inclusiveness is the new propaganda word of liberals and left to con the masses of immigrants, LBGT etc to voting for them. Many will believe the big lie even though they have never experienced racism or discrimination. Same reason they all go on the pride parades even though they have never been discriminated against. Just because normal white conservatives don't join in the fake shaming and take part in pride parades doesn't mean they discriminate against everyone. But liberals believe any lie their politicians tell them on these announcements. Normal people are busy working and living their lives, not discriminating against anyone. We're not destroying the environment either. That's anther lie you liberals and left have swallowed. Just an excuse to push forward their perverted progressive agenda and hit hard-working Canadians with ever more carbon taxes.
