In the past Swedish TV warned not to leave Christmas candles unattended – now they warn about grenade attacks

On Monday, broadcaster SVT informed its readers about the damage that hand grenades can cause normal Swedish families.

The article is mocked on social media because Christmas time usually means warnings about forgotten Advent candles.

But the information on SVT is slightly different this year, an image and film of a family that is blown up by a hand grenade in their kitchen.

Yellow vests in Canada? You better believe it

Over the weekend, a few hundred people took to the streets in Edmonton – many donning yellow vests – to protest both the Canadian carbon tax and the UN Global Compact on Migration. A similar event happened on Parliament Hill, this one largely focused on the migration pact.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau remains committed to both these increasingly unpopular government decisions.

Budget Deficit Could Be Billions Of Dollars Larger Than Trudeau claimed

Justin Trudeau and the Liberals said the budget deficit would be $18 billion.

While that’s far larger than what he promised during the campaign, it turns out that even the $18 billion figure appears to be a lie.

The Parliamentary Budget Office is now saying that budget deficits are set to increase.

New Research Reveals What We Must Do to Avoid Catastrophic Climate Changes

There is a substantial body of research that details anthropogenic, or man-made, climate change. Climate mitigation policies have largely been based on the evidence that has resulted in this scientific consensus. In particular, the Paris Climate Agreement, which was finalized in 2015 and opened for signatures in 2016, is perhaps the most comprehensive of these policies.

When are they going to make this a legal religion so we can tithe and buy indulgences?

Could Alberta pull off a full-blown boycott of Quebec?

Over the weekend, former Wildrose leader Brian Jean called for fellow Albertans to join him in an all-out boycott of Quebec products.

The occasion was prompted by a comment from François Legault, the new right-leaning premier of Quebec. At a Montreal premiers’ meeting, Legault shot down any hope for a revival of the Energy East pipeline saying “there’s no social acceptability (for oil) in Quebec.”

‘I will be born again’: First wave of Syrian refugees set to become Canadian citizens

Three years ago, the first government plane filled with Syrian refugees fleeing the civil war touched down in Canada.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a point of personally welcoming that initial wave of newcomers with donations of warm clothing and an invitation to join the Canadian “family.”

Today, those recent arrivals mark a significant milestone: they’ve met the three-year residency requirement that makes them eligible to become Canadian citizens.


William Watson: Trudeau thinks his carbon tax will avoid Macron’s fate. Let’s see

One continually annoying feature of Justin Trudeau is his evident conviction the world’s eyes are always on Canada. As he told the CBC’s Rosemary Barton in an interview aired this past weekend, “Countries around the world are looking, with a lot of interest, at how Canada is moving forward on putting a price on pollution and supporting ordinary citizens through this transition.”


French Riots Really Aren’t About Global Warming — They’re About Tax Heavy Socialism

After weeks of spreading riots and demonstrations in Paris, socialist French President Emmanuel Macron has had an epiphany or sorts. Not only is he not going to put a new global warming tax on fuel, he’s going to let financially-strapped French families keep more of their money from the taxman. At least this year.

Climate change made these 17 extreme weather events radically worse

A new report, published Monday by the American Meteorological Society, again proves the point. The 100-page report assessed 17 extreme weather events from 2017 — including floods, droughts, and heat waves — and determined global warming either significantly boosted the odds of these events, or simply made such extreme, often deadly events possible in the first place.

Enviros Are Starting To Realize A Carbon Tax Won’t Ever Happen

Carbon fees were once considered an obvious next step in the country’s multifaceted effort to reduce CO2 emissions. Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star on the left, believes a carbon tax can be one part of her sweeping “Green New Deal.” Some conservatives have signed on to the idea, believing it to be a market-based approach to eliminating pollution. Even a number of major energy companies have come forward in support of charging businesses for the amount of carbon they release into the atmosphere.


As government prepares response to calls to bring ISIS members to justice, some walk free

On Facebook, the Pakistani-Canadian described himself in a recent post as a “Mujahid residing in Dar al Kufr” — a jihadist fighter in the land of disbelief.

But more than two years after flying back to Toronto and telling reporters he had served in the brutal ISIS police in Syria, he has not been arrested.

“No kafir can touch me,” he said in a recent text message to a former friend, who shared it with Global News. Kafir is an Arabic term for nonbeliever.


We Must Face Persistent Racial Gaps in Academic Performance

In covering the most highly publicized “affirmative action” lawsuit in decades – against Harvard University — the news media are continuing their pattern of averting their eyes from stubborn facts that cut against their ideological preferences.

In recent trial testimony, Harvard and other selective schools claim that the only way they can maintain adequate racial diversity is to use large racial preferences to admit a great many more black (and brown) students than would otherwise get in based on their academic performance.
