How it looks, given Atwal’s tentacles to the party, is that at least some of them knew full well who Jaspal Atwal is and was. They just didn’t care much
To be fair all of Canada’s mainstream political parties engage in the practice of ethnic vote whoring. It’s identity politics at its most divisive and dangerous, that’s why they prefer to sugarcoat it with the term “multiculturalism”. It makes the crap taste better.
Jaspal Atwal, the former terrorist member and would-be assassin who was photographed alongside members of the Canadian delegation in India, is a long-time supporter of the Liberal Party of Canada.
Karina Gould wants to save democracy from fake news. How?
In the aftermath of the 2016 American presidential election, Western democracies awoke to an uncontrolled and potentially dangerous world of political disinformation, targeted ads, bots and foreign interference.
How Justin Trudeau’s government intends to respond to this new reality before the 2019 federal election should become clearer this spring.
“My hope is that over the course of the spring that we have some more in-depth conversations with social media companies. We’ll have to see where those go and how we think they’re progressing,” Karina Gould, the minister of democratic institutions, told CBC News in a recent interview.
“Are we going to see something more robust in the next six months? If we don’t see something more robust in the next six months, then we need to take action.”
Mr. Dress Up will replace the National.
The workplace at the Ministry of the Attorney General is described as a “toxic” cesspool, begging the question: Given the extreme dysfunction, is the work taxpayers are supporting getting done?
Opposition is mounting to a media coalition’s plan to block Canadians from accessing piracy websites.
Many people fear that the plan — backed by big players such as Bell, Rogers, and CBC — could lead to rampant internet censorship.
“It starts with ‘blocking piracy’ and ends with corporations blocking information that opposes their goals and viewpoints,” wrote Thomas Herr from Barrie, Ont., in a submission to the CRTC on the issue.
He’s one of more than 5,000 Canadians who has submitted an opinion on the piracy site blocking plan to the CRTC after the broadcast regulator invited comments.
Many submissions express deep concern about the proposal.
Since the now infamous ‘Peoplegate’ controversy, an almost endless stream of videos, memes and gags at the expense of Prime Minister Trudeau has been circulating online.
While many of the usual suspects in Canadian politics have been in on the joke, this one was different because of the amount of American and International comment it attracted. From InfoWars’ Paul Joseph Watson to the U.K.’s Piers Morgan, it seemed like Canada, and our leader, was the centre of attention, and not in a good way.
Ottawa ending policy that rejects immigrants on medical grounds by April, Hussen says
Great, let’s further stress an already overtaxed healthcare system by bringing in people who are unlikely to ever be a net benefit to Canada.
The Trudeau government has always loved to virtue signal with other peoples money and now do so at the expense of citizen’s health.
This is weaponized immigration by a government at war with its own citizens. It is vote whoring. It is the Liberal Party.
The fight against a national carbon tax is the policy fight of our lifetime. Every taxpayer in the country, and especially every conservative who believes in the principle of limited government, should do everything they can to stop this devastating tax grab.
Make no mistake, the carbon tax initiative is not about protecting the planet. It isn’t designed to lower pollution levels, enable so-called green innovation or even to curb carbon emissions.
The carbon tax is designed to give the government more power, more money and more top-down control over the economy.
Many prominent Canadians appear to be in a vindictive mood over the tragic shooting of Colten Boushie. It seems terribly divisive and lacking in compassion.
A few, including the prime minister, paid lip service to fair trials. But their passionate extended remarks make publicly clear that they wish farmer Gerald Stanley, acquitted by a jury, had instead been convicted of second-degree murder or manslaughter.
Canada is one the world’s most opaque jurisdictions when it comes to identifying the owners of private companies and trusts, according to anti-corruption campaigners who say that more rigorous checks are required to obtain a library card than to set up a company in the country.
“Anyone can start a company in Canada. It costs about C$200 and the owner of the company can remain completely anonymous,” said lawyer Mora Johnson, who recently authored a report detailing the country’s lax rules around corporate registration.
While publicly traded firms in Canada are required to disclose major shareholders, private companies need only note their directors, allowing those who own, control or benefit from the firm to remain in the shadows.
Weaponized immigration. Make no mistake.
Mass immigration is not a not an economic need in an age of increasing automation and a declining job market. It creates contrived shortages in housing, reduces wages, strains public services and creates a low trust society.
In the spring of 2016, when the sexual assault trial of former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi failed to produce the verdict the Trudeau government wanted, the government decided to change the law to make it even harder for men to defend themselves against rape allegations.
Canada at the time already had one of the toughest “rape shields” in the world – a set of laws and judicial precedents that made it difficult to raise a woman’s past sexual behaviour in court, thereby making it harder for a defendant to establish the alleged victim had given consent.
Almost half of the prospective jurors in the Colten Boushie case were Aboriginal persons, according to one member of the jury pool.
However, the reason there were no Aboriginal Canadians on the jury in this controversial case is because so many deliberately opted out of the process. Other First Nations prospective jurors, meanwhile, were openly and outwardly biased during the selection process, according to one prospective juror who spoke to the Sun.
One need not read too deeply between the lines to realize our prime minister, our justice minister, and the minister overseeing Indigenous relations believe Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley should have been found guilty of murder and on his way to a federal prison.
Forget that a jury of his peers heard all the evidence first-hand, and then eventually acquitted him.
