Conservative Sen. Linda Frum says she isn’t satisfied with Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s apology for giving an award to an alleged anti-Semite — saying Khalid’s professed ignorance of the man’s association with anti-Jewish causes is disingenuous given she’s called him her “rock” and “brother” in the past.
The elephant in the room… Amin El Maoued’s “views” are not considered “extremist” by Muslims. They are widely held within the community. Our political class likes to pretend that the Muslims they imported are magically different from the rest. They’re lying, not least to themselves. Justin Trudeau calls this lie diversity. Any political party that courts the Muslim vote will inevitably find themselves confronting widespread Islamist anti-semitism within their ranks. The rot is well advanced in the LPC and NDP and nascent within the CPC, look no further than Britain’s Labour Party or America’s Democrat Party for a glimpse of what’s to come.
So far, the only concrete policy (if you can call it that) that Trudeau’s government has expressed to the world is feminism.
Justin Trudeau and Catherine McKenna want everyone focused on the demonization of Canada’s energy industry. They want to justify their anti-Canadian carbon tax (which they don’t apply to Saudi oil or other foreign oil imports), and they want to stop people from questioning why they’re destroying the Canadian coal industry.
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – A Member of Parliament with a checkered history has added to her list of controversies by presenting a Certificate of Appreciation to an activist who led a rally laden with hate-filled and antisemitic slogans, B’nai Brith Canada has learned.
Consequently, B’nai Brith is launching a petition demanding that Mississauga-Erin Mills MP Iqra Khalid rescind the certificate and apologize to Canadians for her insensitive and dangerous actions.
I’m loving it. Soon the LPC will be just like Corbyn’s Labour Party. That’s what you get for courting the Muslim vote.
Ottawa to declare federal holiday to mark legacy of residential school system
The Liberal government will declare a federal statutory holiday to mark the tragic legacy of the residential school system, fulfilling a recommendation made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
In a statement, a spokesperson for Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez said the department is working with Indigenous peoples to determine the best date for this sort of commemoration.
On Sunday evening, Quebec MP Maxime Bernier posted a six-tweet thread on ‘extreme multiculturalism’ that has set off a political maelstrom in Canada, a country that seems no longer accustomed to hearing the truth from its political leaders.
Just like that, with the snap of a finger, a moral panic washed over the chattering classes. Someone said something about diversity and multiculturalism. And it was something that didn’t entirely fall within the officially sanctioned boundaries of how we’re supposed to talk about those issues.
Sound the alarm! Man the ramparts! Wrongthink brigade, attack!
The federal government says that the city of Cornwall has been designated a backup centre for any potential influx of asylum seekers, a senior federal official said Monday night.

Conservative Senator Denise Batters apologized to Liberal MP Omar Alghabra for her “choice of words,” as some rushed to accuse her of tweeting out a racist remark.
WASHINGTON, D.C. It could be “days or weeks” before Canada is invited back to the NAFTA bargaining table, Mexico’s top trade negotiator said Friday after almost a month of meetings between his country and the United States — with no Canadians in the room.
A source familiar with the negotiations said that Canada will definitely not take part when the talks resume next Wednesday.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau routinely accuses others of “fear-mongering” and trying to “divide Canadians.” Whenever a critic raises concerns about the crisis of illegal border crossings, Trudeau responds with the same boring old talking points.
He deflects blame elsewhere and accuses critics of trying to pit Canadians against one another.
Just a quick question for the Trudeau government about its current tiff with the Saudis: If you’re serious about standing up to Riyadh, how come you are stilling giving their oil a free pass? How come you have exempted it from your upcoming carbon tax and are not subjecting Saudi oil to the same environmental regulations you have imposed on Western Canadian oil?
It couldn’t be because most Saudi oil is destined for Quebec?
