  1. They can't see it because passively garnering network ratings for advertising revenue (old model) has been completely overwhelmed by social media affirmations and opiates for the masses (new model). Subscribers, followers, likes, re-tweets, etc. have become dopamine for the insatiable appetite of social media users, demanding more and more injections to satisfy their cravings. CNN and other networks are plugged into social media frameworks for additional "content", political alignments, and desired relevance with coveted demographic groups. Advertisers have to walk a minefield o
  2. Even taken at face value, this Global Affairs Canada critical race theory training seems to be at odds with their mission statement and actions, which help to perpetuate the very "white privilege" framework that this training is reported to address:
  3. Global Affairs Canada and presumably other agencies of the Canadian federal government have seized the day for anti-racism training and re-programming in a remarkable virtue signaling campaign...on steroids. Importing and doubling down on U.S. based academics' critical race theory, the movement is underway to normalize Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter with momentum and inertia from the American experience (e.g. Derek Chauvin/George Floyd), while curiously downplaying the actual Canadian narrative. Why would any Canadian federal agency or ministry adopt such overt training rhetori
  4. Canada still hard up for vaccines with Trudeau...considering mixing vaccine types for second dose.

      It’s going on 2 years and we still aren’t close to producing a covid vaccine let alone manufacturing it.  It’s estimated that it’ll be sometime in 2022 before we have our own vaccine ready to START the 3 phase trials.  Then, after 3-6 months of trials, we’ll be ready to start manufacturing.  By then, the world will be flooded with vaccine supply and most countries including ours will be well past herd immunity.  It’s so pathetic it’s embarrassing.

      Yes i forgot we are still pointing fingers, it was the conservatives that sold off all our vaccine making equipment... and yet Justin and his merry gang have been in power for 5 years now, if the liberals were concerned about the lack of our production capabilities, they could have changed all of that... would have made a much better story than pointing a finger....But we still do produce vaccines here in Canada today right....just not covid ones...

      Canada failed...big time...regardless of ruling party or PM.  Canada has been an R&D deadbeat for decades, and now when it was needed most, could not deliver a covid vaccine for Canadians.   

      David Staples: The one big reason why Canada failed to hit a home run on vaccines

  5. Ontario hospitals desperate...allocating ICU beds based on short-term mortality risk.  Good luck !

    1. Boges

      Boges

      They haven't started doing that. But will have to if the ICU numbers get above 1,000 IIRC. 

      The big issue is that Covid-19 patients stay in the ICU a long time. Especially younger ones. So they're piling up. 

    2. Shady

      One of the problems is that our ICU capacity is the same as it was a year ago.  People also have lockdown fatigue.

      Ontario? This... is... SPARTA!

  6. Canada's government bet on China (CanSino) in May, and when that failed it was very late to the vaccine procurement game from other sources. Trudeau was purposely late to get in line. Canadians are now paying for that huge mistake.
  7. Biden keeps reduced Trump refugee levels at 15,000 per year....breaks promise of 62,000.

  8. Liberals caught with their pants down....again.

    1. Shady

      Shady

      Yep.  They’ll just blame the provinces as usual.

  9. 'Moronto' real estate board to stop using term 'master bedroom' in home listings.

    1. Boges

      That'll destroy housing prices. :rolleyes:

       

  10. Canadian bear is OCD...

     

  11. Biden stops negotiated U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan...must be a warmonger.

      Fake news. Try reading your source again. Maybe go slower this time.

  12. Canada's GHG emissions increase with carbon tax for 2019....another Trudeau failure.

      It's ok to billow out tons of carbon as long as you pay the taxes.

      Right?

      It wasn't during the pandemic. It was in 2019, before the pandemic and it was only 0.2%. It was due to a growth in the economy. 

      I suspect recent increases to the Carbon Tax will have a different effect.

      Yeah that damn economic growth.  Gotta make sure that doesn’t happen.

  13. Nope....hundreds were interned at Honouliuli : https://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2015/03/16/393284680/in-hawaii-a-wwii-internment-camp-named-national-monument

  15. Canada gets small COVAX delivery today...just like other third world nations.

    1. Shady

      It really is embarrassing.  Yet we have members of this forum that defend our moron PM at all costs.

  16. Canada has lost the vaccine race....three new covid variants rage out of control.  Sunny Ways !

      Trudeau is never to blame for anything!  How dare you.  It’s all the Premier’s fault!  Everything!

  17. U.S. CDC: Do not travel to Canada, even if you are vaccinated...covid hot zone.

    1. Boges

      Boges

      We could say the same about you. 

  18. Funny Canadian message for Justin Trudeau..."shove it up your astrazeneca !"

  19. Patrons tell BC health officials to get out of restaurant...GET OUT!   GET OUT!   GET OUT!

      Not sure why they'd go to a Restaurant considering it's been their goal to put them out of business for a better part of a year.

      It's deeper than Trump.

      It's pervasive bastardization of Conservative values. 

      Trump really is a symptom not a cause. 

  20. U.S. military leaders have a lot more to worry about besides China, which can't project military power outside of its region for now, but will strive to do so in the future. America's pivot to WESTPAC away from Europe strained EU and NATO relations, and Trump doubled down on the obvious with respect to deadbeats who rely too much on American military power. The post WW2 Grand Bargain has run out of gas...the Soviet Union collapsed nearly 30 years ago. Yet Canada insists that the American led "rules based order" of old must continue as before, even as the world changes around it, including
  21. Canadian MPs may posture that way, but it is not the practical economic or geo-political reality. Previous Canadian governments had the gravitas to deal with such situations to repatriate Canadian nationals...the Trudeau government has consistently underperformed in this arena. One glaring example is the hesitancy to ban Huawei for 5G networks. The U.S. is not going to engage China beyond defensive protocols for longstanding alliances in the region. Japan is partnering with Indonesia as well, but not to attack China. Either way, Canada is in a very poor position to
  22. The EU has actually increased trade with China, overtaking the U.S. as the EU's # 1 trading partner early this year. Anti-China sentiments in Canada are based on a political narrative over economic reality (e.g. "Two Michaels"). Other nations are not going to come to Canada's rescue as a trading bloc against China and their own interests. This may play well for domestic Canadian politics, but will not translate into structural change and counters for Chinese globalism, something it learned from the west...and learned very well.
  23. There is no level playing field...ever...only different degrees of competition that seeks any and every advantage. Hell, Canada is far more economically dominated and exploited by the U.S. than China, but this is far more acceptable because of history and geography ? It certainly is not because the "playing field" was level, 'cause it ain't and will not be. Fundamentally, it comes back to Canada and what it wants to be when it grows up, regardless of China. Falling back on alliances in the face of competition with more lame excuses for worker productivity, R&D, capital investment
