By 2080, the climate in these Canadian cities will look nothing like it does today

The average summertime temperature in Edmonton is around 15 C. It’s comfortable and familiar for residents. But in 60 years, that temperature is forecast to rise by almost 5 C, more reminiscent of the climate just outside St. Paul, Minn.

That’s just one of many specific geographic conclusions in a new study published in Nature Communications.

In an effort to improve climate change communication, the authors came up with an idea: what if they forecast the temperature and precipitation changes for cities in 2080, and matched them with a city that has a similar climate today?

Exquisitely bad timing.


New York Governor: Florida Is Stealing Our Population

We’ve previously talked about the problems that New York State has in terms of hanging onto its population. People have been fleeing the state’s high taxes and oppressive liberal government for years now, dropping the state’s congressional representation by several members and putting the state through redistricting every census cycle. Rather than acknowledge what’s really the problem, however, Democratic leaders in the state government continually come up with new and interesting theories to blame these changes on. The latest is a real humdinger. Governor Andrew Cuomo came out this week and blamed the exodus on… Florida.


Maxime Bernier decries ‘leftist logic’ after Ottawa praises RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant

People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier sent a tweet Tuesday attacking what he called the “leftist logic” that praises female impersonators while branding white people who wear dreadlocks or blackface as racists or perpetrators of cultural appropriation.

​Bernier said it was illogical for drag artists wearing makeup and women’s clothing to be celebrated as a source of diversity while the actions of others — notably whites who adopt some of the physical characteristics of racial minorities — are demonized as discriminatory.


It Isn’t Your Imagination: Twitter Treats Conservatives More Harshly Than Liberals

Many conservatives believe that social media companies are biased against their views. This includes Donald Trump, who last year accused Twitter of “shadow banning” Republicans, and promised to “look into this discriminatory and illegal practice.” A few months later, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey made a categorical denial of any bias while testifying before Congress:

“Let me be clear about one important and foundational fact: Twitter does not use political ideology to make any decisions, whether related to ranking content on our service or how we enforce our rules. We believe strongly in being impartial, and we strive to enforce our rules impartially.”

Recently, Mr. Dorsey appeared on two different podcasts, on which he similarly denied any bias against the right.


Liberals’ Indigenous child welfare bill just about ‘politics,’ says prof who saw draft

Ottawa’s promised “turning point” Indigenous child welfare legislation seems to have been designed with politics in mind because it sounds good but doesn’t change much, according to an Ojibway academic who reviewed a draft version of the bill.

Dennis McPherson, associate professor for Indigenous Learning at Thunder Bay’s Lakehead University, said the draft version of the bill does not recognize true Indigenous jurisdiction over child welfare or guarantee any funding for communities.

New Survey Confirms The Trudeau Carbon Tax Will Force Small & Medium-Size Companies To Slash Jobs & Cut Wages

Trudeau gave exemptions to big corporations, but smaller and medium size Canadian companies will be slammed with the full tax, and they’re worried they can’t handle the cost.

A new survey shows that small and medium-sized companies are concerned that they won’t be able to pass on the cost of the tax to consumers through price increases, meaning that slashing jobs and wages is all they’ll have left.


Twitter trolls stoked debates about immigrants and pipelines in Canada, data show

Twitter trolls linked to suspected foreign influence campaigns stoked controversy over pipelines and immigration in Canada, according to a CBC/Radio-Canada analysis of 9.6 million tweets from accounts since deleted.

Germany: Dreams of “Refugee Work Force” Vanish as 95% of Nonwhite Invaders Remain on Welfare

The widely-propagated liberal delusion that the fake refugee invasion of Europe would “boost the workforce and save the pensions” has been again rudely shattered with new official figures which show over 95 percent of the nonwhite invaders granted “asylum” since 2015 are still on welfare—and that the state’s much-vaunted “refugee reserve” fund of €32.5 billion will be “wiped out” within the next two years.


Quebec government creates guidelines to control problem hockey parents

Parents of minor hockey players in Quebec will now be required to make sure their conduct in the stands measures up to new guidelines set by the provincial government.

The Education Department in conjunction with Quebec’s minor hockey federation has put together a behaviour protocol governing how hockey associations should handle aggressive and unacceptable events involving parents of minor hockey players.

“Minor” hockey players? Them’s fightin’ words!

An explanation of the Progressive savior complex.

The bottom line is Progressives always want to feel like they are saving the world. And don’t get me wrong, trying to save the world can be a great thing. But the problem is, Progressives don’t actually want to do the work to save the world. You see, solving the world’s real issues takes a signifigant amount of work. Not only that, it can be frustrating as progress is often slow and setbacks are the norm.

Katy Perry ‘Blackface’ Shoe To Be Pulled From Shelves

The “face” shoes have two eyes, a nose and red lips on them, and they come in two different colors … black and beige. The black one is problematic, because it looks a lot like classic blackface makeup, which the fashion world does not seem to recognize time and again.

An activist who goes under the name Boudjema, and who was protesting alongside Maillet, said that the injury – one of hundreds sustained since the protests began in November – “concerns all the Yellow Vests.”

DZSURDZSA: Doug Ford is right, student unions are full of “Marxist nonsense”

Since his changes to post-secondary education, Doug Ford has made student union fees opt-in, meaning that students can choose whether they wish to contribute the several hundred dollars a term to their student unions.

While the union fees are now optional, fees for essential services like transit, health, athletics, counseling and career services are still mandatory.


Have American universities become breeding grounds for anti-white hate?

“I’m watching you, white boy,” Isis Davis-Marks wrote in an op-ed published in the Yale Daily News.


Investigative Journalist’s Thorough Case Against Dems for Colluding With Russia Explodes Online Over Weekend

Solomon focuses on the 2009 effort to develop a Russian version of Silicon Valley known as Skolkovo, which Clinton, as secretary of state, worked closely on with Russians including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-President Dmitri Medvedev, Solomon wrote.

“Clinton’s handprint was everywhere on the 2009-2010 project, the tip of a diplomatic spear to reboot U.S.-Russian relations after years of hostility prompted by Vladimir Putin’s military action against the former Soviet republic and now U.S. ally Georgia,” Solomon wrote.
