The federal minister tasked with studying a handgun ban for Canada hopes to make a recommendation to cabinet within the next two weeks.
Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Bill Blair has spent the last several months consulting with stakeholders across the country, looking for ways to restrict access to firearms for gang members and other criminals.
“We’ve completed that study and we’re compiling the results and I’ll be going before the cabinet in the coming weeks with results of that review and some recommendations,” Blair said during the Trudeau government’s cabinet retreat in Sherbrooke, Que.
A gun grab will play well among the Liberal-Left, it won’t solve anything but it’s the sort of “power virtue signal” that will make them feel so good, so righteous and superior it won’t matter.
Anyone in Canada who knows anything about the target on the back of Canadian oil and gas knows the name Vivian Krause. Everyone else should.
Krause’s name has become synonymous with the fight against the concerted effort by U.S. oil interests working to land-lock Canadian oil and gas by using environmental groups to protest against the industry with the stated aim of grinding development to a halt. Krause is a one-woman wrecking crew to the wall of secrecy behind that foreign plan, which she has almost single-handedly exposed by painstakingly following the money trail.
Politicians continue to virtue signal when advocating for renewable energy — but sometimes, they omit facts. That might be because the omitted facts fail to support the “virtue” they are promoting, such as a clean green environment, or maybe politicians don’t feel the need to discuss cost versus benefits or other close examinations of their claims. But despite their best efforts, more information keeps coming to light showing why politicians find it necessary to sometimes leave out inconvenient truths. For instance, Canada appears to be leading the world in reducing air pollution while actually being a low emitter of GHGs in respect to our GDP. When have you heard any green-crusading politician mention that?

Man booed at Trudeau town hall for ‘Christianity and Islam don’t mix’ remark
Islam and everything don’t mix.
As I commented on CTV’s tweet, the reaction was hardly surprising given the venue for the “town hall” was a university campus where moral and cultural relativism reign supreme and never an “Islamophobic” word is uttered.
It’s only to be expected that stating the obvious truth, that Islam does not play well with others, a provable fact, would send such an audience into a frenzy of group-think faux outrage. Expect a steady stream of such bald faced lies and distortions from Canada’s media as they earn their Liberal party stipends this election year.
Not surprising given the venue. Islam does not play well with others & certainly not Christians. Islamic states are noted for their persecution of religious and ethnic minorities. You would be hard pressed to name 1 that doesn’t engage in persecution.https://t.co/BPTLnDIvkT
This is going to be the year of the carbon tax even more so than last year. It’s the year the Saskatchewan reference question gears up in the courts. It’s the year Jason Kenney, noted carbon tax foe, likely becomes Alberta Premier. And it’s federal election year, where Justin Trudeau and Catherine McKenna do everything they can to shame the country into submission on this deeply divided issue.
…In recent years, several high-profile incidents of military personnel associated with far-right groups have forced the Canadian Armed Forces to confront the problem. In the most prominent of the cases, five Canadian Forces members — each of them members of the “Proud Boys” movement who proclaim their “Western chauvinism” — disrupted an Indigenous protest in Halifax.
An investigation last year by Radio-Canada found about 75 Armed Forces members were part of a private Facebook group associated with anti-immigration and anti-Islam views.
Imagine that, being a nationalist or objecting to bad immigration policy, sharia law, female genital mutilation, honour killings and the murder of everyone from homosexuals to apostates as sanctioned by Islam gets you labelled as “far-right” & “extremist” in Canada’s new and improved “Armed Forces”
More than 1,500 doctors and other health care professionals are calling on the federal government to extend medical coverage to irregular migrants — people living in Canada with uncertain immigration status, usually because of insufficient documentation.
The call comes after one woman, Nell Toussaint, took her fight for health coverage to the United Nations.
Crossing the border illegally into Canada was the only option left for me
“The decision to come to Canada came around this time, when I was working with NYU on a research project in Afghanistan and was regularly visiting New York City for official purposes. Security had deteriorated in Afghanistan and civilians like me were particularly targeted because of their ethnic and religious affiliations. People were being attacked at mosques, at places of learning, at gyms, at cultural ceremonies and plenty of other places where groups get together.
Seeking asylum in the U.S was not an option — not after President Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric. So I made my way to Canada. This was not an easy decision by any means.”
Canadian academics and refugee advocates are calling out the federal Conservatives for spreading misinformation about the implications of a United Nations migration agreement, which Canada will join in Morocco next week.
International law and global affairs professors from the University of Toronto and McGill University held a video conference with reporters Friday to explain the Global Compact for Migration and rebut Conservative Party claims that the agreement will force Canada to give up control over its borders and immigration policies. The first-of-its-kind agreement has become the subject of a contentious political debate in Ottawa, with the Tories urging Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government not to sign the pact.
…After reading the UN pact, I’m beginning to realize that Trudeau’s ill-considered “Welcome to Canada” tweet to the world was likely deliberate, as well as the language he uses to normalize illegal crossings. The pact seeks to make migration — for any reason — a recognized right. As for the rights of the receiving nation to object to having their borders overrun? Well, now you’re just being racist.
Rally against The UN’s Global Migration pact scheduled for Ottawa Saturday Sept. 8
I wish them well but hold little hope that the Liberals will be persuaded to refrain from signing the pact and really it is among the least of our worries, the rot is already too deep.
Immigration is the 3rd rail in Canadian politics. Canadians are afraid to speak “unpopular” opinions about immigration policy knowing they will be bludgeoned as racist by the government and their media lackeys. Our mainstream political parties are terminally corrupted by their pursuit of ethnic vote blocs, not one can be trusted. This divide and conquer splintering of the electorate has been made possible by the toxic lies of diversity and multiculturalism. The result is Canada has been turned into a mass immigration Ponzi Scheme that benefits the corporate and political class, your fate is mere collateral damage.
When Canada is ruined and gone where will our mass immigration globalists emigrate to?
The Canadian government’s recent announcement that it will be providing more than CDN $600 million (USD $455 million) over the next five years to bail out the country’s financially strapped media outlets — as part of the fall fiscal update about the federal budget ahead of the 2019 federal election — is not as innocent as it may seem.
In response to the announcement, the heads of Canada’s media organizations promptly popped open the proverbial champagne and raised their glasses to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Unifor, a national union that represents Canadian journalists, was even more jubilant. It felt vindicated that its slogan of “Resistance” — which it touts as Conservative Party opposition leader Andrew Scheer’s “worst nightmare” — had so swiftly resulted in opening the government’s wallet, and handing out taxpayers’ money, to an industry that should actually be fighting to remain steadfastly independent of any form of government backing.
The article illustrates how the Liberal Party “subsidy” of the MSM fits very nicely with the expected behavior of government dependent media in support of the UN’s Global Compact on Migration which the Liberal Party will soon sign us on to. Whether we like it or not.
Some 21 months ago, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flung open Canada’s door to asylum seekers and 36,000 irregular migrants have since crossed our borders from the United States, severely taxing the city’s social service system.
Now, as then, statistics show the feds never really had a plan for those desperate people except to pretty much dump their care and welfare on the city and the province — which have been scrambling to find permanent housing, schooling and paying to accommodate and provide social assistance to irregular migrants.
There is nothing racist about opposing illegal immigration.
Indeed, while polls show most Canadians are opposed to the stream of illegal immigrants flooding across our borders in Quebec — over 15,000 so far this year — it is the illegal part they oppose, not the immigrant part.
I’m guessing there will be far less opposition to the announcement this week by Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen that Canada will admit 350,000 immigrants annually by 2021 (up from 310,000 now).
Actually Lorne many people are upset at the Liberal effort at population replacement. They may not tell pollsters that, but the anger is there. Mass immigration is an anti-Canadian policy designed solely to benefit the corporate and political class. A Ponzi scheme that will reduce access to scarce public resources, depress wages and destroy the very welfare state they pretend it will prop up.Ever heard of automation Lorne?
