  1. This takedown of the New York Times by the outgoing  Bari Weiss is good. It could apply to our society at large, right now.  It is aso a stark warning that we should listen to  about Wrong Think.

      Well written, and sad.  Not that I read much of NYT, just think news organizations should be as free from bias and groupthink as humanely possible.

  2. So can someone explain this Wayfair conspiracy thingy

      Amazing how asinine theories catch on...  snopes says false....can't paste link on tablet.

      A lot of folks in the other forum thinks this is a ploy to get blacks from Biden.

      hmm not a 'ploy' really, West things he actually has a chance, if he can get on the ballot.

      Something must be up or they wouldn't  cut bait and run this quickly if everything was on the up and up.

      Another ethics investigation, no doubt Trudeau will survive another one.

      But...but...but...that can't be true! Chicago is a gun free zone. You can't legally purchase or own guns in Chicago. This is obviously fake news.

  9. Media blackout on all the victims of these riots

      Media are all pushing the same agenda.  "Less looting...." they say.  Like as if, that's good enough!

      Youtube show a group of looters beat up an elderly woman with 2x4 wood who pleaded with them to stop vandalizing.  Her husband was beaten up when he tried to come to her rescue.

      What they need to do is stop covering the riots.  Publicity is what most of these people are looking for.

      They got a dog which they brutalized then killed.  media should report that, then see what happens

  10. We are in a pandemic, gang  bangers shooting up the town, all over, drugs in the street, massive debt & more taxes coming.  Yet,  Toronto'ss fundamentally useless mayor decides he needs to do more virtue signalling to the SJW crowd. No wonder people hate/distrust gov't of all kinds.  BTW, women are now 'menstruators' 347587201_menstrualdayjohntory.thumb.jpg.f94278a6f5dbc8422058f368e358f187.jpg

  11. The govt flew 144 people to a climate conference in Spain while simultaneously preaching about the need to reduce emissions. The govt spent at least $683,278, w/ $178,282 spent on additional expenses such as airfares, taxis & chauffeured cars. 
  12.   They are debating the push by Trudeau to shut down Parliament until September on news this morning.  Why isn’t the media screaming from the rooftops about Trudeau getting free rein to spend with no oversight, no votes, no accountability? Trudeau has bought their silence.

      This shouldn't happen but you just know that it will. A freakin'  minority gov't is going to shut down Parliament and give Trudeau the dictatorship he's always wanted.   He has promised the NDP he will work with the provinces on mandatory sick days  in return for - shutting down Parliament until September. This is abhorrent, a real leader doesn’t abdicate his responsibility to hold the executive to account in exchange for pieces of silver. Get back to work Mr. Singh, and Trudeau. Shame on you, Parliament and democracy is not to be bargained away.

  13. "we were wrong. In retrospect and maybe looking forward, the world might be a very different place in terms of whether this kind of measure is enacted,” said Dr Tam. “So, we will learn."
    That's one hell of a mistake. yet those who questioned it were called racists by the 'experts'

  14. So UNIFOR is willing to put our food supply at risk and screw over the farmers during an emergency.

  15. So, someone had a 'vision' so they have to continue with their ceremonies --- do not come on 'our land' to tell us otherwise.   Okay - when you have an outbreak and need health care don't come on 'our land' to get care and money.

      “Our ceremonies, our sun dances, our sweat lodges, our pipe ceremonies will continue and no matter what any government or what the RCMP may try to say or do, those ways are going to continue.”

      I agree with him on this, 100%.

      You agree that they should not follow protocols... and if the virus breaks out, who should help

      If they already closed down to outsiders, they don't need the RCMP to get heavy on them for doing a pow wow within their community. I oppose government heavy-handedness, for anything like this. It is not unlike my situation at work, where managers write long flowing emails about the standards of practice for minimizing exposure. Then when I call them and ask what to do about it, I have no PPE, they are stupified. Big speeches about safety one thing, providing the goods is another.

      So when the government or employer tells me I have to abide, I put it back to them. I cannot abide by your plan, there is no PPE. And you give me no other choice but to shut down. So you stay out. This is my family here. When you come in here, you are the outsider. (to gov't)

  16. Trudeau's Acting Auditor General spilled the beans that Trudeau has cut funding so the Auditor General cannot  perform the required tasks. Trudeau was asked why today, but  avoided answering by deflecting to Harper.  Trudeau then fires the Acting Auditor General and appoints  someone else. 

  17. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association says that they don't believe police or cities have been given the power to limit travel to your own private property (like a cottage) or through a jurisdiction. Their view is it is unconstitutional to do so .
  18. from twitter:  You know we're at peak woke when Bryan Adams has to apologize for condemning the torture and abuse of animals in a Communist country that operates concentration campus for an entire religious minority and harvests the organs of political prisoners.

      He didn't HAVE to apologize. Bryan Adams is a left wing pussy who saw his fellow members of the woke brigade criticizing him and of course, humbly bowed his head and recanted.

    Trudeau doesn't want the lockdown to end as he can continue to usurp democracy, accountability and Parliament. Questions only allowed from from his bought and paid for unelected fawning media.

    1. Army Guy

      I thought he had all of that before the pandemic, there has never been accountability, see SNC scandal, or the countless others, lets not even mention having to see the ethics commissionaire twice....and he only showed up on Fridays to answer question , and then never really said anything

    2. scribblet

      He's pledged 850 million to WHO which I'm pretty sure is not in the budget so therefore needs to go before Parliament.  He really is getting away with sh.t as the media never asks the hard questions. 

  20. The fact that anybody thought the President meant literally inject Lysol is exactly why we have “caution hot” on coffee cups.

      Obviously he misspoke but did so in spirit of trying to help. He should have said it better but those erroneously suggesting he was pushing for for bleach/disinfectant to be injected are doing something way worse than what POTUS actually did.

    2. dialamah

      Of course he did!  Poor, misunderstood Trump - always talking and saying things, sometimes even making sense, firing people, threatening people, changing his mind every day - he's only trying to be helpful and MAGA!   If only he could figure out how to shut the FU unless he actually had a clue what he was talking about, there wouldn't be all these unfortunate "misunderstandings" swirling about.

      Also, looking forward to your equally understanding tone next time Trudeau "misspeaks".  After all, he's only trying to "help", eh?

      Exactly.  It’s why they had to put do not eat warnings on Tide Pods a couple of years ago.

  21. This is the study we want: "The Alberta study will recruit 1,600 participants to determine whether a prescribed five-day treatment of hydroxychloroquine can prevent hospitalization."
