Facebook hiring hundreds to comply with hate speech law

The new personnel, who will work for a service provider called CCC out of a new office in the western city of Essen that opened on Thursday, will be responsible for reviewing content posted to the social media platform.

The new law, passed by the German parliament in June, requires social media sites to remove flagged content within 24 hours when the content is obviously illegal. Companies have a week to remove more ambiguous cases.


Residents, Jewish advocacy group in Ontario township want Swastika Trail renamed

A major Jewish advocacy group in Canada has stepped up efforts to help some residents of an Ontario town convince local politicians to rename a street currently called Swastika Trail.

B’nai Brith Canada started an online petition Thursday calling on Puslinch Township, about 75 kilometres west of Toronto, to change the street name.

The group plans to present the petition to the township council when it discusses the issue of renaming the private road next month, Aidan Fishman, advocacy director for B’nai Brith Canada, said in an interview Friday.


‘It’s okay to be white’ posters pop up at U of R; security investigating

Campus security at the University of Regina is investigating after unauthorized signs which say “it’s okay to be white” were posted around the campus.

One poster was specifically posted to the door of the Office of Indigenization in the campus’ Research and Innovation Centre.

“Simply put, these signs have no place at our university,” said U of R president Vianne Timmons, in a release.


Portland Schools May Require Teachers Side With Transgender Students Against Parents

Portland public schools may adopt new transgender policies requiring teachers to support the wishes of a transgender student if they are at odds with those of their parents.

Maine’s Portland school board will hold a vote Tuesday in order to determine if they will adopt the comprehensive transgender policy — deemed the “transgender and gender expansive student policy” — stating that the district will “abide by the wishes of the student with regard to their gender identity and gender expression while at school,” according to the Portland Press Herald.


Along with apology, Liberals want to expunge criminal records of Canadians convicted of gay sex

The Liberal government will introduce legislation Tuesday to expunge the criminal records of Canadians previously convicted of consensual sexual activity with same-sex partners.

The new bill is being timed to coincide with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s long-awaited apology for state-sanctioned discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community.

    Residents, Jewish advocacy group in Ontario township want Swastika Trail renamed

    My question to the residents of Swastika Trail, that are so offended by the name is, why did you move there in the first place?

    Seems to me that this is a straw man argument that B’Nai Brith Canada is using. They are using this as a test case to see if the courts will rule in their favour. If they get the verdict they want they will then go after the town of Swastika Ontario.

    • Tooth&Claw

      The Swastika is a holy symbol as well as one of the Third Reich. You get to choose which version you see.
      Grow up people. You’re acting like a bunch of kids around an animal corpse that poke it with a stick to see if it still will kick.

      • Jim Kimball

        They are not talking about a symbol they are talking about a word and name change that could set a legal precedent. Best go back to torturing animals with sticks and leave the serious discussions to the adults

        • Tooth&Claw

          Your condescension and calumny is noted.
          What picture do you see in your head when the word Swastika is mentioned?

          • Jim Kimball

            I see a private road in Puslinch Township.

          • Tooth&Claw

            How disingenuous.

            Why, Do I have something to fear from you?

    • tom_billesley

      If the name is related to Native American symbols rather then the Nazi party or Asian Indian cultures, will it further muddy the waters?

    Rumour has it that after Trudeau cries and makes an apology to queers next week, he his going to apologize to Canadians who spied for communist countries during the Cold War. He will be a weeping mess for that.

    • WalterBannon

      he also plans to apologize to north Koreans killed during the Korean war by the imperialist dogs of the Canadian army

      not long after that he plans to apologize to Hitler

    Bnai Brith should demand that the trail be renamed ‘Exterminate the Natives. Just see how that goes. No? Ok let’s keep it a celebratio of the Holocaust.

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      It’s not that either and the name predates the Third Reich by many years.
      If you don’t like the street name, then move.

      • shasta

        Canadians no longer know their own history. (And what is even worse, they don’t seem to care) It does not bode well for the survive ability of the country.

      • tom_billesley

        I can’t figure out why the council has involved itself, as it is described as a “private road”. Surely it’s up to the people that live on the road?

    • shasta

      Bnai Brith should have stayed out of it. If you read the article it was started by two stupid women who were upset about their address. Instead of using the opportunity to learn a bit about Ontario history, these idiots go off like many these days and fill in their own make believe stories in the place of actual facts.

      • Alain

        With all the real danger to Canadian Jews coming from mass importation of terrorists, one would think Bnai Brith would be far too busy to take issue with a private street name.

    • Waffle

      I’ve just spent a wasted half hour or so trying to find a link between the Swastika Trail and the founders of the Swastika Mine but to no avail. The Dusty brothers who discovered the mine were from St. Mary’s — much further west. So the etiology of the trail remains obscure, lost in this kind of eruption which occurs with seeming regularity every few years or so. Looking for Nazis in the piney forests of northern Ontario used to be one of Bernie Farber’s favorite pastimes. I’m surprised that the ordinarily astute Michael Mostyn is now travelling down this well-worn but crooked path

        But we can’t have a street here in Greensboro NC named after “Aycock” who basically created free public education in NC but was also a huge racist…..Better we have 10 streets named MLK blvd so the USPS can’t deliver the mail anymore….

    Jordanian ex-lawmaker storms off the set of a Deutsche Welle “Shabab Talk” programme filmed in Jordan after woman talks about sexual assaults.

    The young woman shared her experience of sexual harassment with the audience, questioning Jordan’s laws and the response of authorities to the issue.
    The 21-year-old described a time when she reported an incident of sexual assault to the police, only to in turn be harassed and flirted with.

    At that moment al-Kharabshe loudly interjected, doubting her claims and suggesting that such a young woman must be promiscuous and couldn’t possibly be Jordanian.
    “Jordanian girls are not like this … they do not go around speaking on networks (media outlets),” he said. “Are you Jordanian? Show me your ID!”
    “You’re 21 years old and you’ve managed to gather all of this experience already?” he asked.

    A lot of the people cauht and arrested having homosexual sex where found out because they were doing it in public places. So is the little potatoe actually stripping the criminal records of perverts and sex offenders?

    • andycanuck

      I think it might be for those from before homosexual acts were decriminalized for consenting adults (I assume pre-1968) and not for recent convictions. Still it’s stupid virtual signalling apologizing for the past. Dickheads.

      • Exile1981

        Ok I just looked up the convictions they are erasing. It stems from a 1981 arrest of 300 gay men who were either working in or clients of a gay brothel. It looks like the turdeau is erasing convictions for prostitution and being a john.

        1981 was the year Toronto police and RCMP shut down dozens of gay brothels.

        • andycanuck

          Crap. Even worse pandering then.

          I wonder if the two surviving Emanuel Jaques murderers will be pardoned soon too?

        • tom_billesley

          So they were convicted when Trudeau senior was in power?

          • Exile1981

            yes, just like the original 1969 bill that decriminalized homosexuality was signed by PET…. which was the same bill that legalized abortions, criminalized drunk driving, made it harder to buy guns and ammo (prior to that only handguns were considered firearms) and made government controlled lotteries legal.

            So pretty much this bill can be blaimed for most of the root causes of societal problems.
