  1. The State Broadcaster reports that Justin was told by an admirer he is handsome. Justin responded: ""It's the Singaporean blood," he replied with a smile. "It's my high cheekbones, and I tan easily." What a coincidence. Many Indigenous Canadians also have high cheekbones and tan easily. Er, when is that trip to the Arctic scheduled?

      Sort of like Soros being an ex-Nazi...impossible.

      That sounds like a weaselly accusation based on nothing but one's own weaselyness.

  2. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;
    At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

      What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?

            — Only the monstrous anger of the guns.

            Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle

      Can patter out their hasty orisons.

      No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells; 

            Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,—

      The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;

            And bugles calling for them from sad shires.


      What candles may be held to speed them all?

            Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes

      Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.

            The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall;

      Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,

      And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.

  3. It appears StatsCan and the Liberal government did not make clear that the financial data of 500,000 Canadians is actually the data of 500,000 HOUSEHOLDS. This would easily translate into harvesting the data of a million Canadians each year, without their knowledge and consent. Why would this tidbit not be divulged to Canadians? There is a difference between individual Canadians and Canadian households.

    Broken Justice

    A child murderer, Terri-Lynne McClintic, is now back into a facility for killers. https://globalnews.ca/news/4643595/terri-lynne-mcclintic-tori-stafford-2/ I bet the Prime Minister wishes now he could take back those words. So happy that POS is back where she belongs. The best news for the Stafford family and concerned Canadians.
  5. Tony Clement should be turfed from caucus a.s.a.p. The Conservatives don't need the "drip..drip..drip.." on this matter coming from the other parties until the next election.

    And another thing, how does one get treatment for having "poor judgment"?

      Was that supposed be a coherent sentence? Oh, wait, I get it. You mean social media and how you find his stalking young girls on Instagram appropriate for a minister. Okay.

      I didn't say that and you know I didn't, you are quite the piece of work.

    Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    The journalist dubs Trudeau "the Marlboro Man".

    Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    There is nothing Justin Trudeau cannot do. Here he is on horseback on the occasion of his apology for the killing of some members of a British Colombia indigenous tribe 150 years ago. The backdrop is stunning. Note that the apology was made in the name of all Canadians. In the Quebec media, a journalist asks when will Trudeau apologize for the 1918 killing a group of Quebecers in Quebec City who were demonstrating against conscription into WW1. The journalist concludes that there are more votes to be garnered from indigenous voters than Quebec votes. https://www.journaldemontreal.com/2018/11/05/trudeau-choisit-ses-morts
  8. We will all be anonymized. It's only a matter of time.

      At least when we are, we will be able to claim to be whatever we want, and no-one will dare tell us that we are not!

  9. Anil Arora, the Chief Statistician, is not in the least likeable. In an interview with Evan Solomon, he started each sentence with "Listen...". He sure believes he has the god given right to confiscate our financial info.

  10. New Brunswick Liberal gov. falls on confidence vote, Tories to form gov. Another one bites the dust.

      Domino effect... Liberals getting bowled over, like playing ten-pin in a bowling alley. Strike!

    Ottawa's secret consultations on racism

    In the same vein as in your comment, the following applies just as well in Canada as it does in the US. https://americanmind.org/essays/our-revolutions-logic/ Justin's Liberal party has mastered the art of denigrating their critics by accusing them of being anti this and anti that. For example if you speak about the economic downside of raising immigration levels, you are a bigot and anti immigration. If you disagree with the carbon tax, you believe pollution should be free, if you ask questions about Statscan mining our financial information you are anti data and make decisions based on ideology rather than science. It's quite a masterful technique actually and does influence a large swatch of voters.
  12. Good for you. Some of us don't like the idea that StatsCan can access our banking records without our knowledge and consent. Looks like quite a few of us are in that camp and the Privacy Commissioner has taken notice. https://globalnews.ca/news/4615008/statcan-defends-data-projects-privacy/
  13. https://globalnews.ca/news/4610259/statcan-canadian-personal-credit-bureau-data/ In thinking about the issues raised in the OP and in the media, it occurs to me that this data mining by the government and the bureaucracy is an opportunity for them to obtain a picture of how much money Canadians have in their savings and investments. Then, tax increases can be planned accordingly. And another matter, Trudeau and StatsCan claim the data is made anonymous so nothing to worry about. But, the identity of the Canadians spied upon is not protected during the transfer from the financial institutions to StatsCan where presumably it is "anonymized". As said by critics, this amounts to surveillance on unsuspecting Canadians. How soon will information on some Canadians come to Canada Revenue's attention and then flagged for audit. I don't believe that agencies and departments don't share private info, as required by the Privacy Act. We are well past the era where we can expect 100% integrity from them. It's fitting we should discuss this on Halloween cause this should scare the hell out of concerned Canadians.
  14. According to PM Trudeau, it's not a tax on carbon it's a tax on pollution. If you don't agree to this tax then you want pollution to be free.

    Let me think about this new speak.

      It’s nuts to tax people for heating their homes and driving their cars when there is no reasonable fossil fuel alternative available, at least realistically, that most people could afford.  Therefore it is not a carbon tax  to reduce fossil fuel use, it is simply a cash grab posing as an environmental tax.

      Not many media outlets if any, ever mention that  Canada has only 1.6% of global emissions, therefore,  once people learn we would have to wipe out our entire oil and gas sector along with 3/4s  of our transportation sector by 2030 to meet the latest UN/IPCC target, they would  start laughing.

    What's that you say? You were not one of the lucky 500,000 Canadians picked by the government who will access your personal banking information without your permission. Don't worry, your turn could come next year...or the year after....or later. https://globalnews.ca/news/4608105/trudeau-defends-statistics-canada-move-to-collect-banking-info-of-500000-canadians/ How will knowing how much you paid Visa or your bank balance help develop federal programs? Trudeau isn't saying, except to criticize the previous Conservative government. I guess he's ignoring the fact that the Liberals are at the helm and he needs to step up with answers for concerned Canadians. Canadians should be leery of this government intrusion into their financial affairs. It's also just one other central source of information to be hacked into by criminals and those playing around for their amusement. In addition, I do not believe that 100% of Stats Can employees are above selling said information. Trudeau and his government, at your service.
