We’re Doomed: “Canadian” Isis Morality Police Barbarian Returns To Canada

So, I’ve studied history and I don’t really recall Canada having a history of sharia morality police.

But what do I know.

Sen. Lynn Beyak’s position in question after latest remarks about First Nations

Facing possible sanctions by her own caucus, and calls for her resignation by the mayor of Winnipeg, Sen. Lynn Beyak has responded to the backlash over her latest comments about First Nations people and residential schools.

The Conservative leader in the Senate, Larry Smith, is also now distancing himself from the Tory senator, and is taking steps to address her continued role in the caucus.

The Self-Driving Vehicle Future Will Be The End Of Privacy

With the advent of autonomous vehicles we must seriously think about the implications of bringing the interconnected Internet of Things into our lives on the road. The vehicles sensors will constantly be sucking up data and feeding it into the navigation system. The wide variety of data (weather, traffic, speed, location, time, date) could potentially reveal private details to the manufacturer, law enforcement, or hacker. As Observer notes, by tracking this data one might be able to view “lots of trips taking place between two competing companies” which “could suggest a merger deal underway”. There is also the fear of tracking an individuals daily habits by monitoring the data coming from the self-driving vehicle.

‘Goodbye, Mr. Amherst’: Why a decorated British general was stripped of his Montreal street

In his characteristically blunt style, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre didn’t mince words when explaining why Amherst Street required a name change.

Jeffery Amherst, a revered British general who served during the Seven Years’ War in New France and modern day Nova Scotia, “wanted to exterminate Indigenous peoples,” Coderre said.

“Goodbye, Mr. Amherst,” Coderre said Wednesday, the same day he announced the addition of an Iroquois symbol to the city’s flag.
