London Ambulance Service to review terror attack protocol after ‘run, hide, tell’ advice made casualties hard to find

A number of those caught up in the London Bridge attack were so well “barricaded” into hiding places in Borough Market that it took some time before they were found and given medical treatment.

Ambulance chiefs said they fully supported the “run, hide, tell” advice but first-response medics were being reminded that not all casualties are easily found after a terrorist incident.


Wish You Weren’t Here

As B’nai Brith Canada continued to tour its anti-Roger Waters documentary Wish You Weren’t Here, CEO Michael Mostyn responded to the Pink Floyd co-founder’s outburst at one of his recent Toronto concerts, in which he singled Mostyn out.

Before the intermission at his second Toronto concert at the Air Canada Centre on Oct. 3, Waters, a spokesperson for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, claimed that Mostyn said his shows feature “long, lengthy tirades against the country of Israel.”

BLM activist Will Prosper in charge of identifying White Quebecois who are “systematically racist.”

Commission On “Systematic Racism” In Quebec Targets White Quebecois

Last spring the Quebec government decided to set up a commission to explore systemic racism. For most observers, the move came out of nowhere: no one had heard of systemic racism before and the few articles that had appeared in the mass media were skeptical of this new cultural Marxist concept, proving that Quebec is not simply a French version of Ontario. The opposition leader Jean-François Lisée, who is trying very hard to attract minorities to his party — without any success we must add — does believe in the evilness of systemic racism. Overall, two Quebecers actually seemed to believe in systemic racism: the premier Couillard and the opposition leader, Lisée.


Halloween costume company removes Anne Frank outfit

Holloweencostumes.com, whose website is run by the Minnesota-based company Fun.com, pulled the costumes on Sunday after a backlash on social media.

The costume, which can be seen on social media in screen grabs, included a long sleeve blue button-up dress, a brown shoulder bag and a green beret. The company described Frank as a World War II hero and an inspiration, adding that “we can always learn from the struggles of history.”


Wynne Liberals broke every rule in the book

Normally, Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk’s complete evisceration of how Premier Kathleen Wynne plans to pay for her “Fair Hydro Plan” would be an election game changer.

That is, the final nail in the coffin of the Wynne government’s financial credibility, leading to its defeat at the polls in June.

Lysyk’s findings, released Tuesday, are devastating for the Liberals.

She concluded “senior government officials” knowingly ignored the government’s “own policy for preparing financial statements” to create “an unnecessary, complex financing structure” designed to keep “the true financial impact of most of its 25% electricity-rate reduction off the province’s books … by understating future annual deficits and net debt.”


Illegal Alien Charged With California Wildfire That Killed 40 People

The U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) issued a detainer request on the Sonoma County Jail for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez, who was arrested Sunday on suspicion of arson in Wine Country fires that have killed at least 40 residents.

Breitbart News reported earlier this week that Sonoma County Sheriffs had arrested Jesus Fabian Gonzalez, 29, at Maxwell Regional Park in Sonoma County after a series of reports of ongoing fires in the region. Mr. Gonzalez was observed around 3:00 p.m. PDT wearing a jacket and walking “out of the creek area and a plume of smoke behind him,” according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.


Quebec set to pass law banning face coverings for anyone receiving public service — even a bus ride

Muslim women in Quebec who wear a burka or niqab could soon be required to uncover their faces to ride a city bus under a proposed provincial law.

The Couillard government’s Bill 62 on religious neutrality could be put to a vote as early as Tuesday, two years after it was tabled.

The controversial legislation would effectively ban public workers — including doctors, nurses, teachers and daycare workers — as well as those receiving a service from the government, from wearing the niqab, burka or any other face covering.

Pope Demands World Governments End World Hunger And Climate Change

World governments can end world hunger and the migrant crisis by halting climate change and military conflicts, Pope Francis urged Monday.

Trudeau Puts Virtue-Signalling Ahead Of Security On Border Questionnaire

Canada has no obligation to make people trying to enter illegally feel comfortable.

We know it’s absurd that we are supposed to consider the feelings or comfort level of those breaking our laws. In fact, when people considering crossing illegally see how our leaders are falling all over themselves to consider how we can be “nicer” to illegal crossers, it will only make Canada seem like a more inviting destination for those who have no interest in using the legal border entry process.


California Will Block Moves for a “Muslim Registry”’ Across the State

California lives up to its name and status of being a so-called “sanctuary state” as it will prevent a Muslim registry from being implemented in the state.

Ottawa to cut small business tax rate to 9% by 2019

Ottawa announced its plans today to cut the small business tax rate from 10.5 per cent to nine per cent by 2019, as it attempts to quell a backlash to proposed tax reforms that have stung the Trudeau government.

The drop, first announced during the lead-up to the 2015 election campaign, would first lower to 10 per cent on Jan. 1, 2018, and then down to nine per cent on Jan. 1, 2019.

African Bishop: Western politicians ‘pandering’ to Islam

A Nigerian bishop said the Catholic Church in his country is beginning to lose its public influence partly because of the decline of religious faith in the West.

Bishop Matthew Kukah of Sokoto accused European and American politicians and diplomats of publicly “pandering” to Islam at the expense of Christianity.

The result, he said, was the ascendancy of Islam and evangelical Christianity in Nigeria and the decline of Catholicism.


Apple Diversity Chief Apologizes For Saying White People Can Be Diverse

“Diversity is the human experience,” Smith said last week at the One Young World Summit in Bogota, Colombia. “I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”

“There can be 12 white blue-eyed blonde men in a room and they are going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” Smith said.

Though her comments were widely praised by many, race-hustlers were outraged.

Weinstein allegations are not the first stories ‘spiked’ by media

Canada’s Catalonia? Careful Ottawa, western alienation is beginning to rear its head again

It was not at all helpful that the less-than-affable Montreal mayor, Denis Coderre, declared it a “victory for Canada” when TransCanada withdrew its licence application for Energy East, a pipeline project that actually would have provided market-diversification benefits to the national economy.

Like it or not, we need a ‘nudge’ to make better choices

The Nobel Prize for economics, like its subject, runs on controversy. You won’t find here the heated debates about whether Bob Dylan is really a writer, but many laureates – New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is one – arouse as much ire as admiration. Economists are like medieval theologians, coming to mental blows over how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

The latest winner, the University of Chicago’s Richard Thaler, is a case in point. With colleague Cass Sunstein, a prolific jurist and former White House “regulation czar,” he popularized the notion of “choice architecture,” otherwise known as a nudge. In the 2008 book Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth and Happiness, they argued that government has a responsibility to create mechanisms by which citizens will make better choices.

Paris Wants to Ban the Combustion Engine by 2030

The new plans, if implemented, will increase pressure on the car industry to adopt both new engine technology, and new patterns of mobility, as twin concerns over Climate Change and air quality increasingly trump the traditional lobbying power of carmakers.

Yes, the US Government Has Experimented With Controlling Hurricanes

There are dozens of YouTube channels where individuals focus specifically on weather manipulation and modification. They claim to have the expertise to study radar images and determine whether artificial elements were added to developing hurricanes. If you are interested in that type of research, see this.

Merkel’s Bloc Agrees to Limit Number of Refugees Entering Germany

The change of policy comes after the far-right AfD party did well in the German federal elections last month, securing third place and becoming the first far-right party to enter the Bundestag in half a century.

The AfD made significant ground in the elections by playing off fears and concerns about refugees and migration in general, and after the results became clear Ms Merkel said she would try to solve the problems of people who had voted for the party to win their support.

Though a million refugees came to Germany at the height of the refugee crisis, the number has actually tailed off over, with 280,000 welcomed to Germany in the recent year. As a result, if numbers continue to decline, Germany may not have to turn refugees away as part of the policy.

Does anyone believe this is anything beyond an election ploy?

Toronto District School Board’s Dangerous ‘Islamophobia’ Definition Shows Why Canadians Oppose M-103

When M-103 was first introduced, it sparked a strong and sustained backlash from Canadians. As I reported in March, a poll showed that an overwhelming majority of respondents thought M-103 should have been changed to either remove the focus on one religion (40%), or mention all religions (31%). Just 14% wanted it kept as is, a clear rejection of M-103 by the Canadian people.

Yet, the Trudeau government ignored the will of Canadians and pushed ahead, and continued their effort to not only pretend Islamist terrorism isn’t a threat, but suppress the ability of Canadians to speak out against it.


This Is How North Korea Would Start a War (And How Bad It Could Get)

This is the best case for North Korea, but it is important to recall that most analysts judge North Korea’s military as insufficient to defeat the forces of the RoK. The static defenses along the DMZ, combined with the mobility and sophistication of RoK forces, mean that any offensive into South Korea is likely to bog down into a logistical disaster before it can capture Seoul. At that point, attacks along the depth of the North Korean position, combined with a concerted assault on regime targets and the KPA’s command and control network, will likely isolate advance forces and leave them ripe for destruction.

What they never do is admit that their knee-jerk “solutions” are completely pointless in stopping crime, but all of that changed on Sunday. In a stunning admission, Dianne “gun grabber” Feinstein said that no gun law current or proposed would have stopped Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock from killing 58 and wounding 500 more.

Nothing ‘fair’ about Wynne’s minimum wage hikes

Since Premier Kathleen Wynne says her 31.6% hike to Ontario’s minimum wage is all about “fairness” — which will also be the theme of her June re-election campaign — we have to ask: Fairness to whom?

Estimates of the number of job losses that will result from Wynne increasing the minimum wage from $11.40 per hour to $15 per hour in 15 months, range from at least 50,000 (Financial Accountability Office of Ontario) to 90,000 by 2020 (TD Bank) to 185,000 over two years (Keep Ontario Working Coalition.

These estimates (including new jobs that will never be created in addition to existing jobs that will be lost) are based on the logical assumption that when a business’ expenses go up, it must either cut costs or increase profits to survive.

Particularly vulnerable area (23) – characterized by a social problem and criminal presence that led to a widespread inconvenience to participate in the judicial process and difficulties for the police to fulfill its mission. The situation is considered acute.

Deferred area (32) – is geographically defined and characterized by a low socioeconomic status where the criminals have an impact on the local community. Impact is rather linked to the social context in the area than the criminals’ graduated will to take power and control the local community. The situation is considered serious.

Risk area (6) – characterized by the risk of becoming a particularly vulnerable area. Some or some of the set criteria are missing. The situation is considered alarming.

NATIONAL UNITY RISK: Trudeau Is Dangerously Dividing Canada For His Own Political Benefit

Canada lacks a unified industrial policy. Such a policy would be based on strengthening industry across Canada, including the energy industry in the west, manufacturing in Ontario, and the aerospace industry (including Bombardier), in Quebec.

A strong industrial policy would mean eliminating regulations and taxes that hurt the energy industry, bringing in strategic tariffs to protect and grow manufacturing jobs, and yes, sometimes it would mean providing support to Bombardier to protect Canadian jobs.

This would bring Canadians together and strengthen national unity, because it would show that all parts of the country mattered equally to the government, and our government was committed to making sure that all Canadians could succeed.

Texas Capital Dumps Columbus Day for ‘Indigenous Peoples Day

The Austin City Council voted Thursday to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day, a holiday that honors Native Americans, and no longer recognize Columbus Day.

Austin follows such U.S. cities as Berkeley, Seattle, Denver, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and most recently, Los Angeles, in replacing the traditional holiday to instead declare that the second Tuesday of October honor America’s indigenous people.

Councilmembers approved a resolution that sought “to create a path of healing and reconciliation” noting that October 12, 1492, marked the “beginning of the colonization of indigenous people that forever changed their identity, cultures, and achievements.”

Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban

An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned.

The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website.

The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.

Medicine Hat Mayor: “The mayor of Montreal is a moron”

The Mayor of Medicine Hat had some harsh words for anti-Pipeline Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre.

Coderre told reporters the cancellation of the Energy Easy project is a victory.

“I’ve been saying since Day 1 that (TransCanada was) arrogant and condescending,” Coderre said Thursday morning. “It’s an enormous victory.”

Canada buys their oil from the Middle East instead of from their own western provinces, Energy East would have carried 1.1 million barrels to the east coast every day.


‘Transsexual Takeover’: California Law Includes Jail Time for Using Wrong Pronoun for Transgenders

A California pro-family leader warns a new law intended to protect the rights of LGBT Seniors “will force all California long-term care facilities to submit to the tyrannical transsexual agenda, without limit.”

California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Wednesday a “bill of rights” that backers say will help protect LGBT seniors from discrimination or mistreatment in long-term care facilities.


Trudeau breaks another promise

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week removed Liberal MP Wayne Long from two government committee positions as punishment for voting alongside Conservatives on small business tax reforms.

There’s been visceral outrage across the country – including in Long’s riding – among small business owners and professionals who see the Liberal “reform” as a job-killing tax grab.


Tomi Lahren: I’m So Sick of Celebs, Elitists Looking Down on Gun Owners

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sick and tired of hearing these liberal entertainers – many of whom have never bought, touched, or shot a firearm – lecture the rest of us on our Second Amendment rights.

Those injured at the Route 91 Harvest Festival weren’t even out of surgery before the rich and famous mixed their crocodile tears with their anti-gun BS in an effort to shame law-abiding gun owners.Pretty typical narrative from a group of people who will use any tragedy as a means to advance their war on guns, gun owners and the Constitution.


Arkansas: Muslim police officer fired after threats to ‘blow up’ academy

Police say an east Arkansas police officer has been fired and is under investigation after alleged threats to “blow up” a law enforcement training academy in northeast Arkansas.

Arkansas State Police say 29-year-old Wisam “Troy” Algburi was arrested Friday and charged with making a terroristic threat. He worked for the Marion Police Department. Marion police say Algburi had been working on the force for two months on restrictive duty before he went to the Black River Law Enforcement Training Academy at Black River Technical College in Pocahontas.


One problem with the new citizenship oath: Citizens can’t really violate an Indigenous treaty

In a measure likely set to debut next year, the Canadian citizenship oath will soon include its first-ever reference to Indigenous people by including a pledge to “faithfully observe the laws of Canada including treaties with Indigenous Peoples.”

The change was recommended by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and had wide support among government-convened focus groups. There’s just one problem; you can’t really “faithfully observe” a treaty.

IT’S OFFICIAL: California is now a Sanctuary State

California will beef up protections for undocumented immigrants beginning in January under a controversial new law Gov. Jerry Brown signed Thursday to create a statewide sanctuary policy.

Brown signed the bill and 10 other immigration-related bills on the same day as a critical deadline for immigrants aided by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, who must file by Thursday for a final two-year extension before the program is phased out.


Donald Trump is a ‘textbook racist’, claims Duke University professor

The President’s “insensitive, disrespectful and mean-spirited statements and actions” are consistent with a number of categories of racism including “insidious” and “symbolic” racism, according to Jay Pearson, an assistant professor at Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy.

Mr Trump has in the past called racism an “evil” and white supremacists “repugnant”.


‘Yet another carbon tax’: Canada’s ‘single biggest carbon-fighting policy’ you’ve probably never heard of

Canada’s environment commissioner Julie Gelfand delivered a stern warning to the federal government this week, declaring that to deal with climate change Ottawa needs to move “from a seemingly endless planning mode into an action mode.”

That will mean more than just putting a price on carbon — to date the only element in the Liberals’ pan-Canadian climate change framework that’s received much attention. The government’s plan also includes a suite of lesser-known policies, including a proposed clean fuel standard that some say amounts to a second carbon tax.


Antifa Site: Actions Like Las Vegas Shooting ‘Will Only Escalate’ Due To ‘White Supremacy’

The post reads, “Real talk all this he was a terrorist we need to call it terrorism talk is missing the point. Terrorism isn’t our word, terrorism is the state’s word and always has been. It is a word that the state used to smear political movements and to justify any measure taken to crush them. It’s a word they use to justify killing thousands of people via remote control war games from the sky. It’s the way they justify criminalizing whole religions and areas.”

“Even Charlottesville wasn’t terrorism, it was something much older and much more American. It was white supremacy as well as violent misogyny,” the post argues.


Feds to announce payout of $800M to Indigenous victims of ’60s Scoop

The federal government has agreed to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to survivors of the ’60s Scoop for the harm suffered by Indigenous children who were robbed of their cultural identities by being placed with non-native families, The Canadian Press has learned.

The national settlement with an estimated 20,000 victims, to be announced Friday by Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett, is aimed at resolving numerous related lawsuits, most notable among them a successful class action in Ontario.

Confidential details of the agreement include a payout of between $25,000 and $50,000 for each claimant, to a maximum of $750 million, sources said.

Scheer Rips Deceitful Trudeau For Paying Khadr While Fighting Indigenous Girl In Court Over Dental Treatment

Today in Question Period, Andrew Scheer asked why Justin Trudeau gave $10.5 million to Omar Khadr to “save money” on legal fees, but has spent over $100,000 in court to deny a $6,000 dental treatment to an Indigenous girl.

There has been growing outrage over the total hypocrisy of the Trudeau government, and the government has had no good answers for it. That didn’t change, as rather than answer the actual question, Trudeau ended up spouting off his talking points about Khadr’s “rights.”


Stephen Paddock: The Most Plausible Theory of His Motivation

As things always go with these sorts of matters, what we think we know now will inevitably change and, in some respects, undoubtedly change dramatically as more information comes to light. So far, though, this is essentially the extent of the propositions on which the Big Media insiders agree.

Admittedly, I don’t know anything more at the moment. However, I’m shocked (though not particularly surprised) that no one–namely, no “conservative” commentator–has so much as suggested even the possibility that this historically unprecedented massacre just may be the event in which the violent hatred to which suspected Deplorables have been routinely subjected for over a year-and-a-half has reached its bloody climax.


Australia Presses for More Facial Recognition in Terror Fight

The Australian government wants to strengthen its counterterrorism efforts by making use of a fundamental part of all Australian citizens: their faces.

On Thursday, at a national security meeting in Canberra, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is expected to pressure states and territories to hand over the driver’s license photos of every citizen, which would be added to the federal government’s database of passport and citizenship application photos.

The licenses would be a prized jewel: They are more prevalent than passports, and they have more regularly updated photos that can be fed into a sweeping surveillance system, to the alarm of privacy advocates.


‘One of our comrades has made those Trump supporting dogs pay’: Left-wing ‘Melbourne Antifa’ extremists condemned for praising Las Vegas shooter after he shot dead 59 people

Left-wing extremist group Antifa has been condemned for posting a vile Facebook post praising a man who killed at least 59 people in Las Vegas in the worst mass shooting in American history.
Screenshots of the Melbourne chapter’s deleted social media post have been reposted on to their site, highlighting their support for dead 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock.
‘One of our comrades from our Las Vegas branch has made these fascist Trump supporting dogs pay,’ it said on Tuesday morning.


More Canadians petitioning the government about fear of cellphone radiation

If petitions are any indication, a growing number of Canadians are very concerned about being zapped by radiation from their cellphones, baby monitors and wireless internet routers.

Seven of the 16 environmental petitions submitted to the auditor general’s office between July 2016 and June 2017 “concerned potential adverse health effects on humans from radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation from personal wireless devices,” according to one of the fall reports from Canada’s environment commissioner, released Tuesday. That’s up from one in 2014-2015 and none in 2015-2016.
