Description:

With over 10 feet of snow falling in the last weeks in California and Colorado, ski resorts closed from too much snow, highways completely cut off and with one storm, California filled all of its reservoirs again. So much for the doom and gloom of the IPCC telling us the drought would intensify due to CO2 warming and Gore told us our children would never know what snow is again.

Scientists can’t get this N. Hemisphere‘s brutal winter forecast correct, yet we should believe 100 years Forecasts (290)

Canada: School board allows Muslim sermons in schools:

Despite the foundations and long tradition of Christianity in Canada, any accommodation of it — even at Christmas time — is largely rejected in the public school system, which supposedly adheres to secularism. But there is a single exception to the rule, as one religion seems to stand supreme:

Muslim students in the province of Ontario are entitled to hold weekly prayer meetings, held on Friday.  These “Jumm’ah” prayer and sermon sessions have been the focus of intense criticism as the provincial public school system is not supposed to be promoting any religion or hosting any religious instruction.

The Peel school board in Mississauga (near Toronto) is not only allowing Islamic sermons, but it is also refusing to monitor the contents of those sermons. This is despite the very real risk of the jihad doctrine being spread. The Toronto Star reported that “Islamic schools, mosques in Canada are filled with extremist literature, according to a study.” More troubling was that “the authors of the study say what worried them was not the presence of extremist literature, but that they found nothing but such writings in several mosque libraries and Islamic schools.” Continue reading »

Montreal Moves to Limit New Restaurants to Protect Existing Restaurants:

Here’s your “it’s hard to believe, but true” article of the day.

Reason reports:

Lawmakers in Montreal have moved to crack down on new restaurants, in an odious attempt to protect existing ones.

“Montreal has one of the highest restaurant per-capita ratios in North America and the amount of places to eat is worrying local politicians,” reads a Canadian Press piece from earlier this week.

If that sounds awful and weird, that’s because it is. Studies of the best places to eat often conclude that the more restaurants a city has per-capita, the better its restaurant scene. It’s no surprise that the more choices a consumer has, the better off that consumer is. Continue reading »

Loonie Tumbles After Canadian Economy Unexpectedly Crashes Back Into Contraction:

After 4 straight months of MoM growth in GDP, the Canadian economy plunged 0.3% in October  (considerably worse than the 0.0% expectations) despite a resurgenece in crude prices. The Loonie is tumbling, back at 5-week lows, as manufacturing shrank a shocking 2.0% YoY – most since 2013.

Election exodus: Canadians invite 4 states to secede from US:

In a gesture to ease the pain of Americans unhappy with the presidential election result, a group of Canadians have invited the residents of California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada – where Donald Trump lost to Hillary Clinton – to secede and join Canada.

“Dear California, Oregon, Washington – I’m sure we can work something out if you want to join Canada,” tweeted Chad Harris, a reporter from Kamloops, British Columbia.

“To the west coast of the United States, if you want to you can all become Canadian Provinces, since you voted closer to the experiences we have as Canadian,” Andrew Mercier, from Calgary, wrote on Facebook. “Therefore WA, OR, NV, and CA you are now provinces, also bring all the goodness that you have to us!!!” the Canadian added.

Douglas Cole from Beaverton, Oregon, even wrote an ironic open letter on the subject. Continue reading »

Canadian Parliament Condemns Free Speech:

Submitted by Judith Bergmann via The Gatestone Institute,

  • “Now that Islamophobia has been condemned, this is not the end, but rather the beginning.” — Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum. Majzoub is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • What exactly are they condemning? Criticism of Islam? Criticism of Muslims? Debating Mohammed? Depicting Mohammed? Discussing whether ISIS is a true manifestation of Islam? Is any Canadian who now writes critically of Islam or disagrees with the petitioners that ISIS “does not reflect in any way the values or the teachings of the religion of Islam” now to be considered an “Islamophobe”?
  • The question, naturally, is whether Canada’s motion will be replicated in other parliaments in the West. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is particularly active in Europe, having opened a Permanent Observer Mission to the European Union in 2013.
  • In what parallel universe can the efforts of the OIC to stifle free speech possibly be considered advancement of freedom of speech and religion?
  • As the OIC steps up its media campaign and efforts in Europe, European parliaments are likely to experience initiatives like the petition in Canada. The European Union, for one, looks as if it would be to happy facilitate such a motion.

On October 26, Canada’s parliament unanimously passed an anti-Islamophobia motion, which was the result of a petition initiated by Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum. The petition garnered almost 70,000 signatures.

According to the text of the petition, Continue reading »

“New York City recognizes 31 gender identities. People have been *shamefully slow* to learn them all”

WTF!


canadian-gender-neutral-pronoun-bill-is-a-warning-for-americans

Canadian gender-neutral pronoun bill is a warning for Americans:

Two weeks ago I posted three YouTube videos about legislative threats to Canadian freedom of speech. I singled out Canada’s Federal Bill C-16, which adds legal protection for “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal code.

I noted that the policy statements surrounding similar legislation — most particularly those on the Ontario Human Rights Commission website — were dangerously vague and ill-formulated. I also indicated my refusal to apply what are now known as “preferred” pronouns to people who do not fit easily into traditional gender categories (although I am willing to call someone “he” or “she” in accordance with their manner of self-presentation).

These videos attracted a disproportionate amount of attention — online, in the Canadian national media, and beyond. A demonstration at the University of Toronto protested my statements. Another was held in support of free speech. The latter was met by counter-demonstrators who drowned out the speakers with white noise and assaulted a young female journalist — an act now viewed by half a million people on YouTube overall:

If you are wondering, reasonably, why any of this might be relevant to Americans, you might note that legislation very similar to Bill C-16 has already been passed in New York City.

Authorities there now fine citizens up to $250,000 for the novel crime of “mis-gendering” — referring to people by any words other than their pronouns of choice (including newly constructed words such as zie/hir, ey/em/eir and co). Continue reading »

Canada Walks Out Of European Trade Talks, “Deal Impossible”:

With ‘trade’ at the center of any substantive differences between US presidential candidates, 1000s protesting ‘trade’ deals across Europe, ‘trade’ collapsing in China, and lame-duck Obama trying to push his ‘trade’ agenda, it is perhaps shocking that Canada’s trade minister walked out of talks to finalize a trade pact with the European Union, saying it now seems the bloc is incapable of reaching such agreements and that Canadian officials are returning home.

Canada Moves To Burst Housing Bubble, Closes Foreign-Buyer Loophole:

In a move which many Canadians, especially those who have been persistently priced out of the housing market, welcomed with open arms, overnight Finance Minister Bill Morneau unveiled new measures aimed at slowing the flood of foreign money pouring into overheated housing markets like Vancouver and Toronto, a move which some dubbed an unprecedented federal intervention in the sector.

As first reported by the Globe and Mail, Ottawa announced it would close a tax loophole that allows non-residents to buy homes and later claim a tax exemption on the sales.

According to the revision, the government will make sure the principal-residence exemption is only available to individuals who reside in Canada in the year the home is purchased, which immediately excludes thousands of “hot money” Chinese tourists who come to Canada simply to park billions in Chinese cash.

“Incrementalisation.
Take away the right of free speech & protest at unacceptable Government & you get Tyranny.
Whilst I don’t personally consider a Pit Bull a beautiful example of Canis, and have to admit it is probably quite a weapon if used properly, the worrying aspect of this latest interfering bureaucratic nonsense, this time in Canada, is that they’ll be banning German Shepherds, Rotts & Dobermans if this is deemed successful, and once again the people will be defenceless as Society crumbles and we turn on ourselves as the scum plan. All in increments.”

City Passes Law Banning Pit Bulls — Will Take and Kill All ‘Pit Bull-Type’ Dogs Without a Permit:

Montreal, CA – The city council of Montreal recently voted to ban ownership of pit bulls, causing outrage from dog lovers everywhere.

The measure was voted by a 37-23 majority, in response to controversy caused by a random dog attack, which was an isolated incident.

Mayor Denis Coderre issued a statement after the vote saying, “My duty as mayor of Montreal is making sure I am working for all Montrealers. And I am there to make sure they feel safe and that they are safe.” Continue reading »

‘Travesty’: Nestlé Outbids Another Town for Control of Local Water Supply:

Corporate giant Nestlé continued its privatization creep on Thursday as it won approval to take over another Canadian community’s water supply, claiming it needed the well to ensure “future business growth.”

Nestlé purchased the well near Elora, Ontario from Middlebrook Water Company last month after making a conditional offer in 2015, the Canadian Press reports.

In August, the Township of Centre Wellington made an offer to purchase the Middlebrook well site to protect access to the water for the community. Consequently, the multinational—which claimed it had no idea the community was its competitor—waived all its conditions and matched the township’s offer in order to snag the well for itself.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

Canada Has Followed America Into The Integrity Void:

The Canadian government is as corrupt as the American one. Canadian Supreme Court Justice rules that Canada manufactured a “terror plot” in order to create an event with which to scare Canadians into accepting a police state.

Canadian Police “Manufactured” Terror Plot to Ensnare Couple:

In a damning judgment, British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce ruled Friday that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) broke the law and “manufactured” a terrorism plot as part of a months-long entrapment operation that ended in a Vancouver-area couple being arrested and ultimately sentenced to life in prison.

John Nuttall and Amanda Korody were arrested July 1, 2013 and accused of planting bombs on the grounds of the British Columbia legislature in Victoria.

But Justice Bruce found that the couple would never have taken any action had it not been for the active encouragement and coercion of undercover RCMP officers. “This was not a situation in which the police were attempting to disrupt an ongoing criminal enterprise,” declared Bruce in her 210-page judgment. “Rather, the offences committed by the defendants were brought about by the police and would not have occurred without their involvement. By any measure, this was a clear case of police-manufactured crime.”
