Chief Liberal Party fundraiser tied to $8M loan to offshore trust in Cayman Islands

Newly discovered documents from the Paradise Papers show the Liberal Party’s top fundraiser, Stephen Bronfman, was directly linked to companies that were owed millions by an offshore Cayman Islands trust well into the 2000s — despite his strong denials he had any involvement in the trust after 1998.

The documents show how a Delaware-based company closely connected to the Montreal-based financier was owed $8 million from the Kolber Trust, set up for former Liberal Sen. Leo Kolber and his family in the no-tax Cayman Islands.


Immigration policy is out of control and needs an overhaul

Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party

The Trudeau government’s plan to bring in close to one million new immigrants within the next three years should be of serious concern to Canadians. Next year alone, the numbers are expected to reach 310,000 but to that total must be added approximately 900,000 temporary foreign workers and foreign students who will be living in Canada. Since most of the newcomers will be settling in three of our major cities, the pressure on infrastructure and local services will be extreme.

Canada’s current immigration policy is based on myths. All of our political parties, most of the news media, big business interests, the banks and land developers favour large-scale immigration and justify this on the grounds that immigration helps our economy, strengthens the labour force and alleviates our aging problem.

Now haven’t we been arguing just these points on this blog for … Oh I don’t know how many years?


Disability rights advocates fight ‘demeaning’ immigration criteria

The Council of Canadians with Disabilities is calling for the repeal of a provision that bars immigrants with disabilities from settling in Canada on grounds that they could place too much demand on the country’s medical system. The group contends the practice is discriminatory and based on outdated, stereotypical ideas around disability.

Why should disabled persons get special treatment for immigration? Are they being persecuted because of their disabilities?


Financial Portfolios Still A “Man’s World” Laments Fruitcake


Oh, dear:

Women remain underrepresented in economic and finance ministers’ offices, a political sphere that former cabinet staff say continues to be an “old boys’ club” and especially unavailable to women at the senior level.

Long before and after Michele Austin worked as a chief of staff to Conservative minister Rona Ambrose, she noticed women weren’t in finance files.

“Prime ministers, no matter what their party, turn a blind eye to putting women in charge of economic portfolios federally,” she said. “Women’s perspectives on the economy and the bottom line are incredibly important. If you think of who makes purchasing decisions in households, it’s predominantly women, so they need to have a voice at the cabinet table.”


Like the genius of Climate Barbie or the crying acumen of Chrystia Freeland?


Rex Murphy: There is no company Liberals will not keep in pursuit of climate action

“I wouldn’t join any club that would have me as a member,” ace wisecracker Groucho Marx famously said. As with any durable putdown, contained within its smart-ass punch is a worthy insight, the wisdom of the tamer proverb: “You can tell a person’s character by the company he keeps.”


Astronaut Julie Payette did not KO God in the first round

Odd duck.

But she may have undermined the Liberal political party she obviously sympathizes with.

Sorry for all the news from Canada but sometimes a smaller place can be a bellwether. Re “Canadian astronaut turned governor-general trashes all Canadians who doubt that life is a “random process,” Mark Bonokoski at The Toronto Sun: “Imagine if [former Prime Minister] Harper had appointed Julie Payette as Governor General, and she had spouted off the same speech in which she mocked religion and ridiculed the faith of believers?”

Actually, Harper was never quite arrogant enough to do that. It’s a new development.

And Payette is not just a feckless office-seeker spouting off and learning the hard way. She speaks in the name of the Queen. Doubtless, Big Cool thinks that dissing the rubes who fund their international elite lifestyle is fun and educational. Meanwhile, the rubes contemplate the future with the next election in mind.*

Politicians are weighing in. See, for example, from the government broadcaster, CBC, Saskatchewan (province) premier Brad Wall (Saskatchewan Party):

On Nov. 1, Payette made critical statements about pseudo science, creationism and unwillingness by some people to accept that climate change is man-made.

“We are still debating and still questioning whether life was a divine intervention or whether it was coming out of a natural process let alone, oh my goodness, a random process,” Payette said in her speech.

Wall sent a letter to the Governor General Thursday deriding her comments and advising her to think again about speaking down to those with spiritual and religious beliefs.

“I am concerned recent comments you have made did not meet the standard of conduct that comes with your position,” the letter reads.

Wall adds that Payette will be more than welcome when she makes her first visit to Saskatchewan, but tells her “to avoid denigrating or mocking the many adherents of faiths that believe in a Creator,” adding that “many in Saskatchewan object to your comment.”

It didn’t help that Prime Minister Trudeau praised her comments, prompting the new Conservative leader Andrew Scheer to say,

“It is extremely disappointing that the prime minister will not support Indigenous peoples, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Christians and other faith groups who believe there is truth in their religion,” Scheer said in a statement posted to Facebook.

“Respect for diversity includes respect for the diversity of religious beliefs, and Justin Trudeau has offended millions of Canadians with his comments .” More.

Don’t cry for Scheer. He probably sold thousands of party memberships over this. Handy, now that they are raising a war chest for the 2019 election.

He fingered Trudeau, not Payette, because he suspects that Payette was speaking for Big Cool and Trudeau has done nothing to disabuse anyone of that.

* In fairness to Payette, she probably learned all the wrong lessons from being a science celeb in the time of Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson. But they aren’t governors general anywhere. So she had better start unlearning some of those lessons fast. A constitutional monarchy is not a totalitarian state run by the Brights.


GOLDSTEIN: Catherine McKenna, #ClimateCrusader!

It was, declared Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna with the equivalent of a Twitter shrug, “a mistake.”

The mistake being that Canada, through her ministry, had just tweeted its congratulations to Syria for signing the Paris climate accord in a Twitter account that features a smiling McKenna as its avatar.


MALCOLM: Canadians leery of mass immigration

The Trudeau government introduced its 2018 immigration plan last week, and we were told the Liberals were ushering in “the most ambitious immigration levels in recent history.”

The feds announced Canada would welcome one million newcomers in the next three years – and that’s just counting permanent residents who are on track to become citizens.

The government will also issue hundreds of thousands of visas for guest workers, students, and other visitors to our country.

Mass immigration is needed to “ensure economic growth” and maintain our pensions etc…  or so they say.  That’s a lie. It’s used to provide cheap labour for big business and cheaper votes for politicians.

Why would we need mass immigration in a world where automation is replacing jobs at all levels?

It certainly isn’t for our benefit.


Similarities in Nigerian asylum claims based on sexual orientation have Legal Aid Ontario asking questions

About 90 per cent of the refugee claims made by Nigerians in Canada are heard in Toronto.

Kassab said Legal Aid Ontario, which covers the legal costs for most refugee claims heard in the province, became suspicious after a routine review of refugee applications showed that 60 to 70 per cent of about 600 Nigerian claims made in Ontario since April were based on persecution because of sexual orientation.

Kassab described that number as “high, relative to other countries.”

Our Prime Minister gets turned on by Drag Queens so its no wonder fake refugees play the gay card.


Reducing immigration not seen as racist by most, global survey shows

“…With the federal Liberal government announcing this week it will again raise immigration rates, Kaufmann writes in the academic journal, Foreign Affairs, there is sharp disagreement among people in the West, but not so much the East, over whether it’s racist to want to protect one’s own ethno-cultural group.

His research grew out of an article by the Brookings Institution’s Shadi Hamid, in which Hamid contends white “racial self-interest” should be distinguished from white racism.

Hamid believes protecting one’s ethno-cultural group, one’s “people,” is an age-old phenomenon, which is different from actively discriminating against others out of a feeling of group superiority.”

In Canada the political class and its lapdog press characterize anyone who wishes to limit immigration as racist. No major political party can be trusted as all care only about votes, power and perqs in the end. 

If you refuse to drink the toxic cocktail of diversity and multiculturalism, if you refuse to buy into the corporate Ponzi scheme of mass immigration your government will call you racist.

Heaven forbid you should wish to preserve Canada’s heritage and culture and put a stop to The Great Replacement, that will automatically qualify you as worse than Hitler.

Our politicians are busy destroying Canada,  and it is likely already too late to stop them.
