  2. You’re so wrong. Canada was absolutely founded on enlightenment values, many of them derived from Britain which banned slavery in the Empire in 1832, long before it was banned in the U.S. Read about the Underground Railroad. MacDonald was not a white supremacist. He was a Scott who was representing the overwhelming majority of his population who were of European ancestry. Many Indigenous would very much have appeared “uncivilized” in relation to mainstream society. Your comments are irresponsible and untrue. Learn about Joseph Brant and Tecumseh. Read about the countless progressive changes to laws and policies that unfolded in the British parliament and later the Canadian parliament. You really don’t know how Indigenous were treated or why publicly funded education was considered progressive and still is today. Provide evidence for “horrendous and appalling” system-wide treatment in residential schools. This is why people are clinging to extreme sides. No reasonable discussion based on facts.

  4. What I see as an impending threat is we have a generation coming up who implicitly believe the government and their media outlets, as supreme wisdom from on high. They were born into a world of computers and internet, while I was not. And yet I have a much better sense of context and all-around historical knowledge than they do. The lost of historical knowledge, and ability to think or question authority was fundamental to implementing communism. Under its rule all prior history was re-written to portray the former state as utterly villainous, and criminal. Meanwhile it was THEY, political activists who brought communism who were criminal. Result- an even worse and more criminal society. That's why the government has to be reigned in on their power, and their ability to communicate and broadcast their propaganda has to be limited. Essentially make it illegal.

  6. I'm curious about your opinion of the sizable BLM/ANTIFA riots . Large gatherings of people where the only purpose is to destroy things and cause havoc. Most on the political left are perfectly fine with these riots caused by anarchists in close proximity. Why are the Burn Loot Murder riots just fine but peaceful political rallies inherently dangerous?

  7. freedom of speech is more important than some nurses and doctors being more stressed for nonsensical reasons speech not being "respectful" is not grounds to ban it some people being uncomfortable with speech is not grounds to ban it a pandemic is not grounds to ban speech willy nilly either all of your reasons to ban it are stupid reasons you simply want to ban protests you don't agree with and are grasping for straws to try and justify it

  9. "We shouldn't be doing things for the sake of it." said UK's health secretary Javid Singh (BBC). Why? The recently published results on vaccine effects may suggest that passports limited to vaccinated may not be very effective in controlling the spread of the infection, because vaccination, though reducing, does not eliminate transmission of the infection. And if a clear public health benefit cannot be demonstrated, in the countries with functional independent judiciary such measures may not stand to legal challenges. "The Night Time Industries Association warned the plans could have crippled the industry and seen nightclubs facing discrimination cases." Morale: when one has to prove and defend their actions, one tends to think about them more seriously. Not all though. Maybe because not all of those who decide and manage have to think, explain, prove and defend their measures and policies?

People are angry blaming governments, jobless, fed up with lockdowns, loss of jobs, bad economy and frustrated at anyone in power blaming everybody for their bad lives. Liberals asked them to re-elect them with a majority like past two years has been a hell!!!!!!

  13. Harper has been largely silent since leaving office. The other day he did an interview for a vlog. He looks much more comfortable in this interview than back when he was PM. He's much more animated and human in his speech and gestures. He also warns about overspending leading to inflation, and about China's growing totalitarianism. In a rare and uniquely candid interview, former prime minister Stephen Harper warned of a “nihilist” modern left bent on “ripping everything down” and seeking to “end the democratic system.” I don't think the woke left knows exactly what it wants, except perfection, but it's very much a believer that the ends justify any means. So I can see it restricting democracy if it felt that was standing in the way of perfect equity. I mean, too many white men being elected? Can't have that! Have to make new laws and rules for who can run! Maybe even mandate that a certain number of MPs be women and people of various shades of colour. After witnessing China assume direct control of Hong Kong in 2020, Harper said he now believes there is a risk that Beijing may eventually try to take Taiwan by force. “Ten years ago I would have said the chances of that happening are zero, I no longer think that’s the case,” he said. I would agree with him on this. I don't think it's in China's interests to attack Taiwan but I don't think they necessarily care. https://nationalpost.com/news/its-ethics-are-entirely-nihilist-stephen-harper-slams-woke-left-in-rare-interview

  14. I've been watching this for the last few days, and i find it very very disturbing and it leaves nothing more than questions, were they found in a mass graves or buried individually in marked graves or unmarked... How did each one of those children die ? and Who is reasonable the church , government who ? and if there was any wrong doing are we going to hunt them down and bring them to justice . My entire life i was left to believe nothing like this could happen in Canada, i mean i heard rumors, all my time in the army spent in the worlds shit holes, i always thought we as Canadians were better people than those that did evil shit to each other in conflicts, we had better morals and values, i am starting to think not...Canada may be no better than they are... 215 children is a little hard to explain, and i'm guessing this is only the beginning... i hope that this is fully investigated, and if any wrong doing is found, then they be brought to justice, and their names recorded for history to be forever judged... I hope that the survivors get a huge payout, along with the families that lost a child... if we can give 10 million to a terrorist, what do we give an innocent child...

  16. I came across this on a conservative forum, and it's a pretty damned sad thing to acknowledge that a small right wing online newspaper has a more accurate and coherent explanation about the whole residential school graves than in any mainstream media report I've seen to date. It calls out the inaccuracies of the media reports and has a graph from the truth and reconciliation commission report detailing the most common causes of death at residential schools. This report has the context all the mainstream media reports have lacked. When it comes to the coverage of graves identified near residential schools in three First Nations communities, the legacy media in Canada has done a tremendous disservice to all Canadians – especially First Nations. They have created a moral panic, and continue to fan the flames of racial division. This panic came to a breaking point over the weekend, when prominent statues were knocked over and at least 25 churches in Western Canada were either vandalized or completely burnt down. To make matters worse, several prominent commentators, including politicians, journalists, professors, lawyers and activists, excused the behaviour of the mob, explained away and justified these riots, and in some cases, even cheered them on. https://tnc.news/2021/07/07/six-things-the-media-got-wrong-about-the-graves-found-near-residential-schools/?fbclid=IwAR1hBFiREnGZhWU1VbuOa4D6LrQpCh7MLcgwT3atl3NJj5Q6s4sSegl65s4

  17. With Justin Trudeau as PM Canada is certainly moving in the direction of a Communist state. We all know he has publicly stated his admiration for the Chinese dictatorship. Trudeau has started the process of disarming law abiding gun owners while ignoring gang violence. Bill C-10 and now C-36 to limit free speech on the internet are things all dictatorships engage in. Trudeau , like Joe Biden really isn't the one in actual charge, that would be the radical progressives past and present like Telford , Butts etc.

  18. Yes the public education movement, including the education of Indigenous, was considered the height of progressive. Corporal punishment was in all schools and some progressives like Egerton Ryerson opposed it. The truth is that if government didn’t pay for and provide education for Indigenous, the conversation today would likely be about how deplorable it was of government to leave some children behind by not educating them based on their race. It would be called racism.

  19. Joe Biden, who took office in January, announced nation-wide recovery measures to combat the effects of the pandemic on the USA's economy. One of his specific plan, was to give money to small businesses most hurt by the pandemic, under one condition; the owner of said business must not have white skin. This is an extremely concerning news, as this is a plan pushed forward politically that would create a lot of animosity. This is blocked by two courts right now; https://www.wsj.com/articles/stopping-racial-bias-in-covid-relief-11622421892 This is something we saw Democrats do as well in Oakland, where the people -except those who have white skin- who make less than $US 59,000, are eligible to receive $US 500 a month. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/23/oakland-california-universal-basic-income-program Just remember the Democrats really hate White people, and they would risk a civil war if they could hurt them to favor them electorally.

  20. People are so ignorant about our history. about all history, really. And so they read the breathless accounts of 'mass graves' which suggest some horrific slaughter and are appalled. But that's not what has been found here. What was found were unmarked graves. And you will find the same anywhere there were institutions like this, be they natives or not. Similar such graves have been found in the UK, Ireland, Scotland and the US, as well as Canada. Orphanages, except those in big cities, all had them, as did homes for unwed mothers, prisons and mental institutions. People don't realize how poor Canada was when this school went into operation. If you've ever been in an old house, a hundred years old, in the winter, and thought about how drafty it was, well, that was where the better off lived. Except there was no furnace or boiler back then. Most people had very substandard housing which was cold as hell in winter, shacks and cabins with little or no insultation. And most people scrambled to get enough to eat. And if they didn't, no one cared. The very concept of government taking care of people hadn't even occurred to anyone yet. There were no social services and if you didn't have money you didn't get a doctor either. As a result, waves of deaths swept the country every year from Tuberculosis, Scarlet Fever, Measles, and even Influenza. A third of Canadian children died before their tenth birthday. So yeah, in a very large school which operated for a very long time in a rural area you're going to find graves. Kamloops was a tiny fort and railhead back then. Even up to 1950 the population was under 2,000. So when a child died, it was buried there. The government didn't think it could afford to ship the bodies home. And likely didn't care anyway. Government rarely cared about poor people and they didn't come any poorer than natives. I'm sure they'll wind up exhuming the bodies and they'll find all or virtually all died of various diseases. Just like the kids in orphanages etc. This is no different than you'd find at similar institutions anywhere in the world that date from that time. So no, this isn't some kind of horrible crime of mass murder, just how the world was back then. Nor was it racism, just the callousness of government. Hell, look up the Duplessis orphans some time and see how cold and callous government can be to white kids. They were wrongfully transferred to psychiatric hospitals because the feds paid more for mental patients, and then the Quebec government let the CIA do mind control experiments on many of them. And that was in the 1950s! Some of them are buried in unmarked graves too.

  21. About 60% of these residential schools were run by the Catholic Church. The remaining 40% were run by a couple other denominations, Anglican and Methodist and possibly United church I believe. I am not sure if the Presbyterian church ran some. I believe the non-Catholic churches have apologized for what went on in them. Yet the Pope inexplicably refuses to apologize. I can only assume he refuses because an apology could mean a big chuck of money would have to be paid for compensation out of the Vatican billions. So far it has been the federal government who has paid compensation, which means the taxpayers of Canada. It is time the Pope stepped up and contributed their share out of their billions.

  23. I have to laugh at this post. Many years ago, we had just bought a new and quite expensive piece of equipment for our business, and my wife had been asking to think about a larger car for her as our 2 kids she hauled all over the place were becoming teens and were quite tall. We thought that we would look at a minivan because, what the heck, everyone else has one. Went to local Chrysler store and asked to see a loaded up AWD Grand Caravan - and they had one in off of lease with low miles. They gave it to us for weekend, and we left them telling that we would need to finance for a couple months as I had just spent all of our available cash. We ran our business on zero credit simply because we don't like debt. Brought the van back Monday telling them 16 mpg just didn't fit into our 60mpg normal experience. Finance guy said that this was fine since there is no way to extend any credit to us. Turns out we didn't have a good credit rating and we didn't have a bad one - we had NO credit rating at all so their lending protocols simply didn't fit. About a dozen or so year later, our youngest graduated and wanted to buy her first new car. She wanted a Jeep (for business use) so here we were back at the same Chrysler store. She had just bought a house and was to start work in a few days, so I slipped her a wad of cash for the downstroke and we took a test drive. When we came back, the finance guy was standing there with the other set of keys in hand and asked us to come in and sign off. About half way through, he looks at me and says: "I know you from somewhere" and after a bit...:"YOU'RE the no credit rating guy!". We both had a great laugh that someone who could most days stroke a cheque for any car on his lot he couldn't finance for a cheap used car but the kids we raised and put through 20 odd years of University could get a shiny new one AND a new house without even having a job!!!!!! You are so right: it is all about the credit rating - but that has nothing to do with "capitalist economics" it is about how the credit business has grown and evolved. In my much younger years as a banker, we were expected to know our customers and made lending decisions up to a branch limit right at the counter. Today, lending is so huge and involves so many poorly or untrained front offices (and this now includes banks) their book is controlled by procedures that take 99% of the discretionary authority away from the contact level operative. It has been replaced by protocols that simply refer to the very arbitrary and narrowly defined set of rules that establish a credit rating. This is nothing to do with capitalism, it is simply about consumerism. If it was about capitalism, a capitalist pig such as myself would be welcomed with open arms.

  26. Though the outcome was never in doubt, the intellectually challenged but ever self-righteous arbiters of woke aka the democrats chose to waste precious house time, putting aside all other matters of importance including addressing the ever increasing death toll due to the pandemic, the need for a stimulus bill to be passed and every other matter of note in order to hold their petty little trial that turned out to be little more than a theater of the absurd complete with home movies. If this is an example of how democrats will govern America than there is nothing on Earth or in the 'heavens' that can help Americans.

  27. I very much have to disagree with this. Socialism IN THEORY treats greed as a sin, but it is nothing but pure greed that inspires EVERY socialist leader to reward themselves and their friends far in excess of what every other citizen will ever see. That is why absolute socialism as demonstrated by such visionary leaders as Chairman Mao, the Kim dynasty, Maduro, Castro and let's be honest the USSR's great communist revolutions resulted in nothing but mass deprevation and death for the citizens while the leadership went on to live extremely comfortable lives. The only way socialism succeeds for its citizens is to operate under the much more transparent social democracies that can check dishonesty and greed. AND, you will note: every successful social democracy lives ONLY within a capitalist economy tempered by social POLICY, not ownership of ALL of the means of production. Similarly it is not capitalism that worships and rewards greed, it is Casino Capitalism that uses capital for speculative gain and CREATES NO WEALTH - which is also the Achilles heal of full bore socialism. Capitalism rewards productivity, not greed. Unfortunately, we have not learned to recognize the difference between endeavor that creates wealth vs. systems that do nothing but re-distribute wealth. The latter is easily identified by the common charactaristic that wealth is redistributed according to privilege granted to those who can exploit it from greed - be it within a so-called capitalist economy or a socialist/communist one.

  28. Trudeau's last defense crumbles. The message has been that we couldn't make the vaccine here, and had to rely on other countries who had vaccine production facilities. Well, guess what? According to the Canadian doctor working at Oxford who has been on the development team for the Astrazeneka vaccine, Britain had virtually no production facilities either. That didn't stop them. TORONTO -- Countries like Canada that are waiting for vaccine shipments amid an international shortage could have done more in the early days of the pandemic to boost their own domestic production capacity, according to a leading vaccine expert from the United Kingdom. Oxford University Regius professor of medicine Sir John Bell was responsible for overseeing the development of the Astrazeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine, which is approved in the U.K. but not yet in Canada. He said the U.K. went to great lengths to scale up its production in early 2020 as vaccine trials began. “We started from nothing, and we're now pretty pleased that we're in pretty good shape. Lots of other countries decided that they would rely on others, and that perhaps has not proved to be the right strategy,” Bell told CTV’s Question Period in an exclusive interview with Evan Solomon airing Sunday. The U.K. was able to increase its vaccine manufacturing capabilities from “very close to zero” in a matter of 10 months, Bell said. The strategy was to repurpose existing manufacturing facilities elsewhere in the country to suit vaccine production. "They repurposed those, they transferred the technology to them, they learned how to scale up, they went through all the hard yards it takes to become a manufacturing facility,” he said. Well how about that? They set about to produce vaccines and were ready with ten months. And what did our government do? It signed a deal with CHINA to produce vaccines for us. And when China laughed in our faces then they were left scrambling after other vaccine production companies to sign deals long after every other western country had already done so. Israel was just about the first to sign up and have no vaccinated half of every adult citizen. Canada is under 2%. The UK is up over 12% https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/coronavirus/as-canada-awaits-vaccine-doses-relying-on-other-countries-is-the-wrong-approach-u-k-expert-1.5288416

  29. There will never be another President Trump. Say what you like about him, you are forced to never be able to put his memory out of your mind. And with the seismic shift back to the past, dyin' Biden, many across the US are being confronted with the reality of how good Trump's term was. They are growing tired of masks and then they see Biden not wearing them after signing mask mandates and saying things like, "we will lead by the power of our example!" I don't think the honeymoon will be very long. Even the rioters in Portland and Seattle hate him already. Which reminds me. Lets see how quickly the Dems go from condemning rioting and trying to impeach for it, to shrugging their shoulders at it while the businesses of voters burn. Somewhere Trump is saying, "Miss me yet?"

  35. Yesterday, in the midst of watching a seditious mob casually walk past an unprepared capitol hill police force, I came across a brilliant tweet: After spending the 20th century undermining democratically elected governments that commit the unforgivable crime of failing to be sufficiently deferential to US business interests, the US became a snake trying to devour it's own tail. Much attention was paid to Trump and his gang of sycophants. However, Trumpism is only marginally about Trump. For decades, across the western world, right wing ideologues (starting with Reagan and Thatcher) have been trashing anything remotely resembling collective action. Governments have been discredited (conservatives are people who are so convinced governments are incompetent, they elect people who will prove them right) and taxes slashed. The predictable results have been a diminished sense of individual security as wages stagnated; and healthcare and education retreated towards their traditional roles of being the exclusive preserve of the wealthy. Even among people doing relatively well, there is a heightened sense of precariousness as these days, anyone can lose their livelihood overnight. Nowhere is this more pronounced than in the US, where education and healthcare are most expensive, worker protections are weakest and corruption is rampant. Having been thoroughly inculcated with anti-government ideology, conservatives looked for others to blame for their problems and Trump supplied them with plenty of others - immigrants, Muslims, the media, and, most of all, Democrats. Hyped up on conspiracy theories, people will now automatically discredit anything that comes from "official" sources and believe whatever they find on the internet that confirms their beliefs. Many people assume that things will be OK as soon as Trump is out of office but this is far from evident. Seventy-five million lost souls voted for an evidently delusional, lifelong-crooked failed businessman who has never taken responsibility for anything. Those people will still be there once Trump leaves.

As I have repeatedly stated in the past, and as Queenmandy85 just stated, if there was any evidence of fraud that in any way cast the results of the election into doubt, the White House, the Republican party, and the right leaning courts, packed with Trump appointees, would have been able to show such and have the relevant votes discounted. Such nonsense as blaming procedural decisions for not allowing courts to review evidence supposes a breathtaking lack of competence on the part of those trying to change the outcome of the election. Look at your headline there. "Efforts to oust Trump"! He wasn't ousted. He was defeated. He lost. Biden won. You have just provided a great example of media bias.

  40. I agree that the monarchy is a bit of a clown-show, but the biggest threat to democracy from a Canadian POV is our state-controlled media. The extent to which our media protects Trudeau and demonizes the conservatives and their supporters is no joke now. The relationship between our media and the Libs is the same as the relationship between Xinhua and Xi, NoKo News and KJU, etc. They're in lock step, and there is no real opposition in a country where the gov't has complete control over the media. A perfect example of "weakening our ability and effectiveness at criticizing undemocratic institutions in other countries" was when Trudeau tried to pontificate to the the Chinese Gov't about how "the Canadian gov't doesn't interfere in judicial processes so we can't intervene on behalf of Meng Wanzhou" and then Xinhua busted him for intervening on behalf of SNC. Our own media wouldn't even call Trudeau out for that, so now we have communist news agencies talking down to us about our failed democracy.

I don't know of any other democratically elected leader who has had to endure such a constant vicious barrage on a daily basis not to mention the hate directed against his family. It has been an ongoing coup from day one and I wonder how anyone could stand up to all this abuse without cracking.Whatever his faults are, I truly believe he deeply loves his country and he is a fighter through and through. You correctly pointed out how Trump rallies always drew huge crowds and were overflowing with enthusiasm in stark contrast to Biden events. The sizable lead Trump had in Pennsylvania got wiped out pretty quickly..in a state that has benefitted a lot from fracking. I think this should be challenged one way or another. Americans deserve to know if they can trust the integrity of their elections.

They are planning to go much further and will likely rig the system to favor their side in future elections.

  46. While I don't agree with the anti-vaxers and the anti-Covid crowd, I still believe Canadians have freedom of speech. This guy Chris Sky has just been put on the no-fly list for being an anti-vaxer, anti-Covid protestor/speaker for exercising his right to freedom speech. The government appears to be shutting him down and preventing him from travel so he cannot go to protest rallies and speak. This while a convicted terrorist, who killed someone when he was fighting for al Qaida in Afghanistan, received 10.5 million dollars and an apology, is not on the no fly list and is free to fly. This is Trudeau's Canada. Trudeau did express his admiration for the Chinese Communist system about six years ago. Are we fast becoming a Communist state? Could the pandemic and Trudeau government's response be the trigger that removes our fundamental freedoms and establishes Canada as a Communist dictatorship? Should there be a difference between the way a Communist dictatorship acts and the way a western democracy acts toward people who differ in their beliefs and speech about the pandemic and government response? https://www.rebelnews.com/chris_sky_lands_on_canadas_no_fly_list?utm_campaign=rr_04_09_2021&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel

  48. Is it hate or disgust your picking up on ? what I see is frustration with a mix of both hate and disgust... one felt but thousands upon thousand of vets and currently serving members... All of these soldiers have picked up the torch handed to us by vets before us, and with out hesitation they have sacrificed, marriages, friends, family, watching kids being born and then growing up, and trust me it's not for the money... It starts out for love of country and soon becomes for the soldier on the left and on the right of you...even today i would do anything for those people day or night, would I pick up a weapon for my nation i'd have to think about that... My nation has let me down to many times, and not just me like i said thousands upon thousands... I don't think any vets would be turning in their graves, i think they would be looking at Canadian citizens to stand up for it's soldiers, not just on Nov 11 , but everyday.. Don't get me wrong i am very appreciative of everyone that comes out and honors our fallen comrades. I find it a little ironic that most Canadians take great interest in honoring our military one day a year, but come tommorrow those same vets will be in our courts fighting for medical benefits, and the same rights most Canadians already have... troops will be prying to the war gods, that one day our government will purchase equipment made in the last 20 years, so on Nov 11 we don't have so many vets deaths to honor.. I hope i live to see the day when Canadians have our militaries back, as much as they have yours.. This is not directed at one political party but all of them... stand up for our brothers and sisters.
