“Prime Minister Trudeau’s historically high level of spending comes in the absence of a recession or war,” read a statement by the institute, which generally advocates for lower taxes and smaller government.
Growing concern in Canada over liberal policies benefitting Muslim extremists sheds light on why an “anti-Islamophobia” bill — proposed in the wake of the deadly January 17 Quebec City mosque attack and approved by parliament on March 23 — spurred such heated controversy there.
Motion 103, tabled by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid, a Muslim representing Mississauga-Erin Mills, calls on the Canadian government to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.” Because the bill makes no mention of any other religious group targeted by bigots, it was opposed by most Conservative Party politicians and a majority of the public.
From David Nitkin at Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights and Freedoms here:
This may be the most important official Parliamentary Petition you and I will sign with the power to affect the Trudeau Liberals and shake their support for M-103. MPs jobs will be on the line if they go forward with M-103. It is a Parliamentary E-Motion which carries much more weight than a change.org public petition. Please consider signing it immediately and promoting it today to every like-minded citizen you know. You must sign before 26 July 2017. More.
Reality check: The prospect of getting rid of them before 2019 is invigorating even if nothing happens.

1. The Canadian Public Is Arising From Slumber
Our group is purpose-built to combat M-103. Just two months old, we are growing at 30 new members a week. Motion M-103 (Islamophobia) has the potential to become the biggest citizens revolt since the Quebec Referendum. 800,000 Canadians signed petitions to MPs about it in just three months. Yet most Canadians still are not aware of the threat to Canadian laws and freedom of expression. Just before M-103 passed Parliament in April, only 12-14% of Canadians polled agreed it was a good idea. Talk to your friends. Ask them to join us. Have them ask to appear as a witness at the Standing Committee on Heritage. For info about us, see https://www.canadiancitizens.org/mission-statement More.
Reality check: If that’s true, why hasn’t Justin! Justin! been forced to resign? Why is his party in power? Why do we hear next to nothing from Conservatives?
The Liberal government is suspending the few remaining political activity audits of charities after an expert panel report recommended removing a political gag order imposed on them by the Conservatives five years ago.
As an immediate first step to respond to the panel’s recommendations, National Revenue Minister Diane Lebouthillier “has asked the CRA to suspend all action in relation to the remaining audits and objections that were part of the Political Activities Audit Program, initiated in 2012,” a release Thursday said.
Iran and its Islamist regime is currently making a major effort to expand its footprint in Canada. Their aim is to use American’s northern neighbour as a “forward operating base” for influence operations against the American government. In a recent video, Hassan Abbasi, a leadership figure in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), was boasting about a “guerilla movement of Iranian agents living and working in the United States.” Iran, he says, is leading a clandestine army of potential martyrs within the US.
This does not seem to be an isolated event. Iranian diplomat Hamid Mohammadi said in 2012 there were many Iranian-Canadians “working in influential government positions” and called on others to “occupy high-level and key positions.”
Given Iran’s history of exporting violence and terrorism, that Iranians on both sides of the border are discussing how they are infiltrating North America should be of concern.
This article mentions the Jaffari Centre’s East End Madrassah, whose curriculum text compared Jews to Nazis. This blog broke that story which resulted in a pantomime “Hate Crime” investigation. BCF also broke the story of the centre’s Imam Rizvi and his belief that marrying 9 year old girls is just dandy. Just sayin. It’s not like I get paid to do this.
Yet the Prime Minister also walks back #WelcomeToCanada remarks
Once again, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has misrepresented Canadian policy on the world stage.
In the cover story of the most recent issue of Bloomberg Businessweek, Trudeau claims the former Conservative government advocated “headscarf bans”. It’s simply not true.
The PM tells the influential American magazine that in the last election he “was up against a government than ran on snitch lines against Muslims and headscarf bans and a fear-filled narrative that Canadians chose to reject”.
As opposition politicians continue to hammer Canada’s defence minister for trying to claim credit as “the architect” of a major Afghan war operation, some in and out of uniform are questioning why anyone would want to have what, is arguably, a dubious honour.
In some military circles, the 2006 Canadian-led Operation Medusa is seen as a failure.
A sigh of relief. That was the collective feeling among political watchers of all stripes back in November of 2015 when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his first cabinet. And the appointment of Harjit Sajjan as defence minister played a big role in that.
Every Canadian member of Parliament and senator started getting bigger paycheques just days after the Liberal government released a budget projecting years of deficits and offering no plan to eventually balance the books.
