City of Toronto to tear down $550 park stairs, says man who built them

The maverick Toronto handyman who erected a $550 set of stairs in a community park says the city is going to tear them down and build a more expensive replacement that meets its construction standards.

Retired mechanic Adi Astl said he took it upon himself to install the steps after several neighbours fell down the steep muddy slope that served as a shortcut to a community garden in Tom Riley Park, in Etobicoke, Ont.

Petition With 175,000 Signers Threatens ‘Backlash’ If MSNBC Hires More White Conservatives

Progressives aren’t happy with MSNBC’s recent programming changes— and they’re not afraid to speak out.

In the midst of a number of new hires and an apparent shift to the center right, some of MSNBC’s most diehard liberal fans are circulating petitions demanding the cable news network go back to its progressive roots.

The latest petition, hosted on Credo Action, urges network executives “Stop the white conservative hiring spree at MSNBC.”

Column: “Pride an embarrassment”

I’ll say:

I want you to work with me to ensure that Toronto maintains its reputation as a place of inclusion and leadership on LGBTQ issues,” he told those who gathered on the City Hall rooftop podium.

Pride co-chairman Alica Hall actually had the audacity to tell us that what happened at last year’s Pride parade (when Black Lives Matter — Toronto hijacked the parade for 30 minutes) was a “catalyst” for conversations.

Those conversations were about — get this — “belonging” and “inclusion,” she said with a straight face (while new Pride executive director Olivia Nuamah hid out at the back of the crowd).

Lesbian leftist Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam — and self-appointed activist for the Toronto’s LGBTQ community — also talked repeatedly about “togetherness,” along with her favorite buzzwords, “hyper-diversity” and “intersectionality.”

In fact, she used her lefty-speak more than once, I guess, to pound us over the head that there are some LGBTQ groups that are more oppressed than others. Or something like that. Not that she or Hall dared mention BLM, the group that has forced the edict that the Toronto Police (and by extension police forces all over Ontario) are not allowed to march in uniform in the June 25 Pride parade.

“Pride is political … Pride is intersectional,” she said.

(For those who are not familiar with the latest leftist-speak on campuses and among the fringe element, intersectionality is about intersecting social identities who share systems of oppression, domination, or discrimination.)

The (mostly leftist) hypocrites on council (a much smaller crowd than in years gone by) who voted not to defund Pride all smiled and cheered, happy in the knowledge that they are “intersectionally-aware” while throwing the Toronto police under the bus (until they need them, of course.)

Councillor Janet Davis even kissed Wong-Tam after the flag-raising to show her support, or something like that.

Inclusion, what inclusion? How do any of them have the unmitigated gall to mention the word when they’ve excluded Toronto’s police force — both gay and straight officers — and by extension, all police forces with gay officers and who support LGBTQ issues around Ontario.

Either out of sheer arrogance or hypocrisy or gall or blatant disregard for doing what’s right, these pathetic excuses for allegedly tolerant gays and their supporters have turned this year’s Pride into a sham — a circus and one that is sure to embarrass Toronto around the world. How could it not, with our cops ready to take New York City up on its offer to have them march in uniform on the same day as our parade?

 

Any parade that extolls one’s choice of sexual lifestyle should never be entertained, period.

Having said that, let this train wreck happen. Don’t take sides. Let the intersectioned whiny-pants duke it out in their own perverse way. They couldn’t get any more ridiculous.

And when (not if) a lone wolf plows through their festive group-hug of inclusivity, they will further shove their craniums into a particular orifice rather than admit that they were ever self-absorbed and wrong.

Jewish Ryerson student ‘felt targeted’ over placement request

All Ryerson social work grad Rebecca Katzman wanted was to do her third-year placement at one of two respected Toronto Jewish organizations with a track record of addressing social justice issues.

The 22-year-old, who will graduate with her Bachelor of Social Work degree on June 8, said her desire to be placed at either the Prosserman Jewish Community Centre (JCC) or the United Jewish Appeal (UJA) was “sparked” by a combination of actions at Ryerson — among them the anti-Semitism she experienced on campus.

However, she wasn’t prepared in the slightest for what happened with her third-year placement coordinator in the faculty of social work, Heather Bain.

Academic Intolerance Is Having Chilling Effects Even Beyond the Campus

Student thuggery against non-leftist viewpoints is in the news again. Agitators at Claremont McKenna College, Middlebury College, and the University of California’s Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses have used threats, brute force and sometimes criminal violence over the past two months in efforts to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles Murray, Ann Coulter and me from speaking. As commencement season approaches, expect “traumatized” students to try to disinvite any remotely conservative speaker, an effort already under way at Notre Dame with regard to Vice President Mike Pence.

This soft totalitarianism is routinely misdiagnosed as primarily a psychological disorder. Young “snowflakes,” the thinking goes, have been overprotected by helicopter parents, and now are unprepared for the trivial conflicts of ordinary life.

Nationwide Manhunt For Joseph Jakubowski, Suspected Of Plotting Terrorist Attack

According to NY Daily News, Joseph Jakubowski posted a video on social media of him mailing a manifesto to President Trump on Tuesday. Shortly thereafter, he broke into a Janesville gun shop, Armageddon Supplies, and stole 16 high-end guns along with suppressors.

Half an hour after the gun store burglary, Jakubowski’s vehicle was found nearby, fully engulfed in flames.

Law enforcement obtained the manifesto and the FBI has been doing a behavioral analysis on it.

“It’s really a long laundry list of injustices that he believes the government and society and the upper class have put forward on to the rest of the citizens,” Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said. “It’s just an overview that he feels that the government, and law enforcement in particular, are acting as terrorists and are enslaving the people and creating this environment that he finds unacceptable.”

Jakubowski also referenced dying by the hand of President Trump and said that he wanted to save everyone by taking out one politician at a time.

He’s melanin deficient so this is getting a lot of publicity.

Swedish Paper Intentionally Blurs Faces Of Sexual Predators Sought By Cops

“The police often have information, photos and video with the suspects, but have not yet arrested or convicted. We seldom publish such material. Police investigations are police thing and not the press. Our job is to keep an eye on how the police working. Not to cooperate with them.”
