Wonderful news, fellow Canadians!
Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government in Ontario has discovered the existence of a Carbon Fairy, who is going to pay all the costs of carbon pricing for us, forever!
I urge all Canadians to contact Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and their premiers and territorial leaders immediately, to learn how you can get a Carbon Fairy to pay for your carbon pricing, too!
If you were recently at Montreal’s Trudeau International Airport, someone may have been spying on your cellphone.
A Radio-Canada reporter detected the presence of an electronic surveillance device known as an IMSI on Feb. 21, while waiting for a U.S.-bound flight.
The revelation comes after a joint CBC/Radio-Canada investigation earlier this week found electronic surveillance IMSI catchers have been used in the area near Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
Sweden’s leftist establishment and media believe a cornerstone of their perfect society is multiculturalism: large scale immigration from some of the poorest, most backward nations on earth. Swedes who disagree with that plan risk being labeled racist, fascist, even Nazi.
The logic should be really simple to understand, yet many have difficulties grasping it: If you import the Third World, it’s what you’ll get.
Three senior House Democrats asked U.S. teachers Monday to destroy a book written by climate scientists challenging the environmentalist view of global warming.
“Public school classrooms are no place for anti-science propaganda, and I encourage every teacher to toss these materials in the recycling bin,” Scott said. “If the Heartland Institute and other climate deniers want to push a false agenda on global warming, our nation’s schools are an inappropriate place to drive that agenda.”
The re-election of a local mayor is rarely news beyond the fact that it happened.
But Ferguson, Missouri, is not Anytown, USA, it was the epicenter of progressive riots and media hype in the wake of the killing of Michael Brown by a white police officer after Brown attacked the officer and [tried to] take his gun.
Now the re-election of Mayor James Knowles III has upset NBC News, one of the outlets that hyped the riots and the #BlackLivesMatter movement that came out of it.
Ferguson is a majority black city, but residents who voted clearly didn’t seem to mind having a white mayor. Knowles, who is white, won handily, 56 percent to 44 percent over City Council member Ella Jones, who is black.
Obviously the Russians again.
The German government says there’s no need for new legislation to regulate Islamic organizations in the country.
Members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right Christian Democratic Union party have called for a ban on foreign funding of Islamic organizations, and for Muslims to get statutory rights to pastoral care from an imam in prisons and hospitals.
Government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Monday that such a law was “a non-issue” at the moment and noted that religious freedom is guaranteed by the German constitution….
Is France’s online far right a threat to democracy?
The French far right may be tiny on the institutional stage – the National Front (FN) has only two MPs – but on online platforms it is a giant.
Often collectively called the “fachosphère” (from “fascist”), websites denouncing mass immigration and Islam have seen spectacular growth in France over the past 10 years.
The most popular among them dwarf the sites of the current presidential candidates in terms of page views.
The German cabinet approved a plan on Wednesday to fine social networks up to 50 million euros ($53 million) if they do not remove hateful postings quickly, prompting concerns the law could limit free expression.
Germany already has some of the world’s toughest hate speech laws covering defamation, public incitement to commit crimes and threats of violence, backed up by prison sentences for Holocaust denial or inciting hatred against minorities.
“There should be just as little tolerance for criminal rabble rousing on social networks as on the street,” Justice Minister Heiko Maas said in a statement, adding that he would seek to push for similar rules at a European level.
“It’s difficult to combat extremism, for example, in an environment like Iraq where people have suffered a decade of crippling sanctions, two illegal invasions, a missing three trillion dollars and a lack of global investment to replace the huge loss of infrastructure caused by sustained bombing by foreign governments. Any analysis that doesn’t address these kinds of issues, along with issues of marginalisation, is far from complete.”
More Muslim outrage…… in moderate Tunisia. This is a religion whose MBO is anger, suppression, intolerance, and violence. Islam needs to dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Tolerance when applied to evil is evil.
Dax J, who played the call to prayer track, later offered his “sincere apologies to anyone who may have been offended by music that I played at Orbit Festival in Tunisia on Friday.”
After successfully synthesizing artificial DNA strands from Baker’s yeast using nothing but laboratory equipment and human ingenuity, scientists working as part of the so-called Synthetic Yeast Project (SC2.0) are now ready to move onto their next endeavor: The synthesis of artificial human DNA.
Set to be released in just two years, the first artificial lifeforms that mimic the DNA found in nature and replicate it for biotechnology purposes could end up unleashing a cascade of human tampering with nature. Synthetic DNA, researchers say, can now be manufactured in the lab and swapped out with the natural DNA in living organisms, resulting in the creation of new synthetic organisms that can be programmed to do all sorts of things that they otherwise wouldn’t do naturally.
The duty to accommodate creed beliefs extends to situations where prayer observances conflict with regular daily routines or school hours…
Religious and creed observances sometimes take communal forms. An education provider may consider offering on-site space to observe congregational forms of worship, as an inclusive design approach, where people require accommodation during normal school hours to fulfill congregational worship needs…
