    This wouldn't be as big an issue if Trudeau wasn't such a virtue signalling hypocrite, not only that he lied saying there were only 2 incidents, we now know there are 3 (that we know of). It's also about the Liberal tactic of digging up past Conservative transgressions which is coming back to bite them. Trudeau is a pathological liar. Live by the sword, die by the sword

    Blather. Harper did nothing whatsoever to try to ban abortions or bring back the death penalty. And unlike the Republicans he seemed quite fixated with fiscal conservatism and bringing the budget back into balance. Also unlike them he didn't seem much interested in a strong military. And Scheer so far seems to have less courage than Harper. If you want to know what Scheer will do just check the polls. He'll do what the polls say would be best to do.

    Real women don't need to hide behind some 'feminist' banner, taxme. Real women tend to stand on their own and value the contributions of men. Real women can think for themselves - unlike so-called 'feminists' who depend on slogans and newspeak but when faced with intelligent logical questions are at a total loss as how to respond.

    Tomorrow is the Remembrance Day in Canada. Lets remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives all over the world in Europe, Africa, Afghanistan etc. so the we live in democracy. Lets not take our Western democratic system and freedom for granted. Many lost their lives so that we have what we have. Lets not jeopardize our democratic system either by going extreme and hence undermine sacrifices made or populate our land of freedom with those with do not believe in freedom and democratic values. God bless all those who made those sacrifices. May then rest in heaven and peace.

    Incredible how lowly considered is the free speech debate and freedom of journalism in Canada. The two main parties, Liberals and Conservatives, are actively, and using tyrannical ways, trying to impose a narrative to the population it sights to predate. Liberals and Conservatives are the enemies of the people, as well as the paid media shills.

    Liberals seem to be buying his shtick, they don't care especially in Quebec, if he wins re-election Canada will be the laughing stock of the world. Having said that, I'd give anyone else another chance as it was so long ago and he has apologized of course, however, Trudeau is such a semonizing self rightious holier than thou sermonizer who is pretty quick to call people racist when they disagree with him, that he should not be given a pass on this. Karma just ran over his Dogma.

    Large groups of culturally homogeneous people, by definition called "nations" (like Quebec, a "nation within a nation"), naturally yearn for self-determination. They have their owns wants and desires, and to live how they want to live and enjoy and maintain their culture without government interference. When 2 or more large groups of cultures live within the same country and one of those cultures feels they lack this self-determination and feel they are being controlled by another powerful group, this group becomes disenfranchised and this often causes political/social conflict within countries and has caused many civil wars or threats of wars or separation, here are only some examples: - Quebec vs rest of Canada, aboriginals vs rest of Canada, Scottish and Irish vs Britain, the Balkans, Israelis vs Palestinians, Hindu Indians vs Muslim Pakistanis vs Muslim Bangladeshi's vs Sikh Punjabi's, Tutsis vs Hutus in Rwanda, Shia vs Sunni Muslims across the ME, US north vs US south (in 1800's), the Nazi holocaust, Muslim minorities in China, war in Darfur in Sudan, Coptic Christians in Egypt, Christians vs Muslims in Lebanon etc. People wanting to change our entire international system of sovereign nation-states, and have well-meaning but naive utopian dreams of a borderless world fail to understand these cultural power dynamics. Sovereignty and national self-determination is the entire legal basis of the international system of nation-states that was created with the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, it's the fundamental basis for our international system. So much so that it's enshrined in the UN Charter. All countries are nation-states. Trudeau thinks Canada is first "post-national state", and is somehow be immune to internal cultural conflict (Quebec & aboriginals & Western alienation says otherwise). He dreams of a world & a country where all diverse peoples can get along and live peacefully with one another. It's an honourable dream, but given history and the different conflicts around the world & in Canada it is naive to think this way. That's why the integration of different cultures and migrants within Canada must be done VERY carefully, which it's not. A post-national state is a road straight towards the gathering of competing sub-national political groups (like Quebec), very dangerous for social cohesion. We all need to feel like we are all "Canadian", we all need to feel like we're part of the same "in-group" even if we have some differences, and we all need self-determination.

    The anti-immigrant sentiment has always been there through many waves of newcomers, but it is more viral and more virulent and does seem more manufactured now. I'm not really sure whose purposes it serves ... but I think it's very sad that some people spend their lives trying to make up reasons to hate other human beings. Hark! Here's one now. Lol

    Fake Melania mystery from earlier may be example of Turkish face-swap technology in use! Prototype Fake Melania was quickly spotted by sharp-eyed patriotic Americans. More advanced version of face-swap technology may not be so easy to detect! Why would Turkey replace Melania with Fake Melania? What happened to real Melania during swap?? My sources tell me this could be project to build cyborg super-soldiers, similar to on Six Million Dollar Man TV program. Call him the Six Hundred Million Euro Man! Turkish cyborg super-soldier will be able to run very fast, jump over fences, and bend steel bars as well as other things. Project could work with Turkish 2400MHz microwave weapon, imagine a super soldier who can cook falafel with his bare hands. -k

    The issue of the supply ship built by Davie shipyards continues to dog the Liberals. They tried to kill it, originally, apparently on the orders of the Irving family, who had won (bought) the rights to build the ships themselves ... eventually.. some day. Davie had a second ship ready to go but the Liberals, again, apparently on orders from the benefactors, the Irvings, said it was unneeded. Trudeau himself said they had done a study and it wasn't needed. He lied. He does that. All the time, apparently. This reinforces just how tight is the relationship between the Liberal party and certain of Canada's billionaire elites, like those who run Bombardier and Irving and SNC Lavalin. The Left has always tried to portray the Tories as the party of big business but it's really been the Liberals who have that relationship in Canada. Meanwhile the court games between the Crown and Admiral Norman's lawyers continue as he is was pushed out of his job and is being prosecuted (likely on the orders of the Irvings) for pushing the supply ship forward. Military assessment ruling out the need for a second interim supply ship doesn’t appear to exist Conservative leader Andrew Scheer questioned the Liberal government why it was not moving ahead with having Davie provide the second supply ship, the Obelix, to the navy. Scheer said the navy needed the second ship. But Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused Scheer of playing “petty politics.” “The armed forces did an assessment,” Trudeau explained. “They don’t need the Obelix and for him to suggest that we should buy it anyway is pure base politics, the worst politics. We make our decisions based on facts. https://ottawacitizen.com/news/national/defence-watch/military-assessment-supposedly-ruling-out-a-second-interim-supply-ship-doesnt-appear-to-exist

    Do you mean like the Muslim women who are now in custody of Syrian free army or Kurds, most of them are saying openly that they agreed with ISIS and the killing, and all that goes with being a member of ISIS and now they want to come home so they can suck of the western tit of free things...so they can start preparing for the next Jihad......and yet many here in the west see those tears and ask why can we not bring them back" That is what sets my evil detector off.

    Was Canada so concerned about "increased tensions" caused by other Iran inspired events in the region ? Were Canadian nationals advised not to travel in the area ? Did Canada refuse to deploy 500 troops in the region because it might "increase tensions" with Iran ? Nope. News flash to Canada....President Donald Trump was elected to "increase tensions" with Iran.

    The history of rights is very interesting, i've studied it. Western governments used to oppress their people arbitrarily all the time, as in the days when kings and queens ruled. It was like Iran or China, people would disappear in the night, or held in jail indefinitely without charge, or intimidated by police if you held unpopular opinions about the government or any matter. The USA was formed as a kingless republic because they hated the english king, he took their rights away, so they invented a system that would prevent any one person or branch of government from having too much power like a king would. The popular George Washington voluntarily stepped down after 2 terms because he didn't want to have a "reign" like a king. In England, human rights were created shortly after periods where kings/queens did very bad things and the people rebelled and killed the king or removed them or exiled them and then put in new rules so the next monarch couldn't do the same. People take their freedoms for granted and let governments make all sorts of laws that restrict their natural-born freedoms. Everyone is born free by the laws of nature until some government makes a law and decides you can't do something and if you do it they'll send men with clubs and guns to your door and if you still resist they'll beat you or shoot you and throw you in a cell until you comply. That's what a law is, it's force of compliance by threat of violence, so we need to be darn careful whenever we decide to make a law.

    Some Western conservatives may think women are inferior but they are not trying to keep women covered, in the house or take away their rights to inherit, to vote, to be seen, to have a voice, etc. They are not stoning women for (supposed) adultery or for refusing to cover. Wife beaters in western society do not enjoy the applause of their peers. Western conservatives may not like gays, but they are not tossing them off rooftops. Women and gays still have a little ways to go, but no. Not the SAME at all. Smarten up. Ask any Western woman if they would prefer living in Western society or in a Muslim-ruled country and there's your proof.

    Turkish army has revealed to me that they will soon be employing a version of the Trojan Horse against the Kurds. Turks will be placed in teams of two and no one will be allowed to eat falafels for 48 hours before the mission, for obvious reasons. (Even the Turks don't like being hot-boxed.) Turkish army will "appear" as an unassuming and innocent caravan of camels just on their way to the oasis, only to unleash their secret weapon - the Turkiye 3000 Ultra Fighter, which is a lethal combination of buckshot and spitballs. The Kurds won't know what hit 'em. Remember, you heard it here first.

    It's because the left has levels. They support gay rights, women's rights, personal freedoms, etc, except where such comes into conflict with Islam, and might offend such. It's actually quite weird. They don't so much lose support, as lose any inclination to discuss such support. If you were to say you had nothing but loathing and contempt for conservative right wing religious nutters, most lefties would invite you in, until you told them you were talking about Muslims, in which case you would be given short shrift pretty quickly.

    The irony of all this is that if the Mufti & crew had accepted the 1947 UN Partition Plan, they'd own Tel Aviv right now. But, no...the Mufti & friends were having none of that sharing with the Jews jazz. The pie was to be all theirs. They wanted Jordan too...but that's another tale. War was the answer. It's STILL their answer. These two terrorist supporters have no interest in sharing with the Jews, either. The "grandmother thing" pretty much proves Israel's point.

    A hugely popular company that facilitates the free speech expression of hundreds of millions having a fairly clear political censoring bias is a problem. We should all worry about this, except those who want to censor those they disagree with, and those people are tyrants we need to be worried about too.

    Why would we have to when you bring it up damn near every day? No other terror attacks seem to have left the slightest impression on you, but you cry yourself to bed every night thinking about the one or two attacks on Muslims over the past several years. Muslim terrorists set off bombs in train in Spain killing 193 MH: Yawn Muslim terrorists bomb subway in London killing 52 MH: Is anything else on TV? Muslim terrorist runs down people in crowd in Nice killing 87 MH: So what? Muslim terrorist slaughters 12 journalists in Paris MH: I hear Margaret Atwood is writing another book! Yay! Muslim terrorist blows up teen concert in Manchester, killing 23 MH: It sure looks like a nice day for a bike ride. Muslim terrorist runs down people on bike path in New York, killing 8 MH: Maybe I'll walk. It's a lovely day Muslim terrorist runs over and kills soldier in Quebec. MH: I think I need to get a pedicure. Muslim terrorist murders solder in Ottawa, attacks parliament. MH: boy, look at the weather out there! Crazy guy kills 6 Muslims in a mosque in Quebec, then calls police on himself. MH: AAAAAHHHH! Ahhhhh! The world is ending! Ahhhh! (runs around in circles pulling at his hair and crying) AHhhh! We must ban everyone from saying anything against Muslims! Ahhhhg! We must censor the internet! AAaahhh! We must fight the evil right wingers! Aahhh! One year later. MH: Ahhhhh! Ahhhh! We must do something! Think of those poor Muslims killed in the mosque! Ahhh Two years later. MH: AhhhhhhH! Our Muslims are being attacked! Aaaaarggh! Oh the humanity!!! We need new laws! We must stop the evil right!

    It remains the law in Canada for school-aged children to attend school, as it should. If students live very far from a school, funding is provided for students to live near schools. That’s really what residential schools are. A century ago many schools were run by government or religious institutions. Now when Indigenous students attend schools far from home, they are Indigenous run. It isn’t all wine and roses, as many students still suffer depression and face challenges of substance abuse. I will tell you that child welfare agencies don’t enforce attendance, and now child welfare is going to be Indigenous run on reserves, though still publicly funded. Will it result in more children being removed from families? Will more or less removals be better or worse for children and communities? The verdict isn’t in because the process is getting underway. The costs are high. Hopefully the results are better.

    I'm too old now for it to affect me, but I have given thought to whether I would ever have had an abortion and under what circumstances. It's a decision that is not taken lightly and I believe in my sisters that the vast majority do not take this difficult decision lightly, either. I am very grateful that I have the right to make my own decision, based on my own circumstances, based on my own life. And I would not want to take that right away from anyone else.

    Jesus never existed. He is unknown to history. The Romans left no records of such a rabble rousing rabbi though they left records co-temporaneous with the time of Pilate who did exist and for whom there is physical evidence. The Essenes, a religious bunch totally involved with the religious politics of the time, left voluminous records, but nary a mention of such a person or such antics as have been attributed the imaginary man. Other historians of the time also failed to mention the son of god was walking among them.

    I think that, given time, and a cutoff from a continuing stream of tens of thousands of people from the middle east and other states which have extreme cultural and social views, and a cuttoff of money and imams coming from Saudi Arabia, North American Muslims can be come as moderate and secular as most Christians, and discount the violent and intolerent stuff. But right now almost all our Muslims came from the nations which have extremely intolerant views. And those views are reinforced every year with 100,000 fresh Muslim citizens coming in. The security situation in Israel has deteriorated as a result of the Muslim states refusing to accept that anyone but Muslims can rule anywhere in the middle east. Before the Intifada, lots and lots of Palestinians worked in Israel proper, and Israeli Muslims were freeer. But the need to crack down on terrorism has made things worse for both groups as well as Israeli Jews. And again, there is the cultural/religious issue of Muslims (in general) hating Jews. That doesn't come from the behaviour of Israel. It comes from their religious texts. Malaysia's 'liberal', 'moderate' president talks about Jews the way someone in the KKK does. Antisemitism is HUGE in Malaysia, and they don't even have any Jews!

    Fascinating description of a political and cultural practice that is spreading by its own social inertia in Canada, without official sanction. I hear the same little speech, or a version of it, at gala events—literary prizes, political fund-raisers, that sort of thing—when whichever government representative happens to be there reads some kind of acknowledgment before his or her introductory remarks. But you know a phenomenon has really arrived in Canada when it involves hockey. Both the Winnipeg Jets and the Edmonton Oilers began acknowledging traditional lands in their announcements before all home games last season. Acknowledgment is beginning to emerge as a kind of accidental pledge of allegiance for Canada—a statement made before any undertaking with a national purpose. Is this more of a lefty, progressive movement to spur more "reconciliation" ? Perhaps.... And of course, the usual comparison to the United States is made, if only because it is routinely expected in a piece about Canada: https://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/canadas-impossible-acknowledgment So what's the deal ? Is the "acknowledgement" virus spreading like wildfire on a Canadian prairie, or is this just more guilt ridden trigger events for a few progressives who struggle with the realities of history and occupied territories ? Are the "settlers" on traditional lands even allowed to sing O' Canada anymore without the acknowledgement? Fascinating.....

    This is an interesting read from a woman who married a Muslim man and spent years in a harem in Afghanistan. Her take on life in religious theocracies contrasts with her contempt for western feminists who excuse it even as they praise Margarate Atwood's Handmaids Tail. As Muslim women are being tortured, honor-murdered by their families, or stoned to death, sometimes for refusing to wear the veil, many Western multiculturally and politically correct post-colonial feminists are deconstructing and wearing the face veil and the head scarf as symbols of anti-racism and as a form of respect when they visit Muslim countries. Such feminists are also silencing and demonizing all other views in academic journals, in the media, and on feminist internet groups. https://quillette.com/2019/10/02/gilead-resembles-an-islamic-theocracy-not-trumps-america/

    The English Canadian media, politicians and academics ARE a monolithic block on virtually every subject. Certainly they are on the subjects of immigration, multiculturalism and diversity (there can NEVER be too much of any of these). But polls consistently show this is wildly out of touch with most Canadians. Two thirds of Canadians tell pollsters immigrants aren't integrating fast enough. You'll not find a single English Canadian politician, federal, provincial or municipal who will agree. Likewise 61% of Canadians want immigration lowered, but there are NO politicians, not even one, who agrees. They get away with this (the politicians) because while most Canadians want less immigration and multiculturalism those are not anywhere near their primary motivations in voting. And because the media is ferociously hostile to any voice which even suggests it and continually spews soothing streams of feel-good stories about immigration, refugees and diversity.

    Trudeau just doubles his divisive identity politics while demonizing Canadians who disagree with him as racist and bigoted. Heck, anyone who opposes his ISIS hug a thug reintegration plan is ‘Islamophobic’ even though it is offensive to millions of Canadians including those victimized by radical Islam. If he wins another term, he will announce consultations on racism which will be a sham as there will be a predictable outcome after which he will announce new oppressive legislation curbing freedom of speech etc. Then, he will smear critics of such legislation with the usual cries of racist, bigoted etc. further silencing dissent. He will do anything to hold onto power, including vilifying millions of people.

    Canada is more than just Ontario and B.C., and several provinces are far more dependent on fossil fuels. Not only is this a direct concern for economic viability in the case of Alberta, it is a base load dependency for other provinces. Hydro is great, but not without environmental impact as well. Obviously, Trudeau's climate change initiatives have just inflamed the underlying provincial conflicts that have existed in the past. When/if provincial economic activity is impacted negatively by all these political machinations for climate change, there will be a direct reduction in GHG emissions....hardly the approach that many would support. Recessions are great for emissions reductions !

    It's completely relevant jacee. If we're talking about the hate rally that was held against muslims in this thread then we can talk about the hate rallies that were held by muslims in this thread as well. You know what kind of people are famous for banning the discussion of relevant truths don't you? The point of public discussion isn't supposed to be to promote a false narrative jacee. Go to occupy democrats if you want to post in a space where dissenting opinion is banned. It's not like there were only two terrorist attacks and one hate rally in the history of the world. It's simple: open the topic, discuss the whole topic and all of the relevant details, or don't do either if that's what you prefer. But don't try to tell people that they're not allowed to talk about relevant truths just because you don't like them. You started the thread but that doesn't make you the official lord and moderator of it.
