  1. Global News just reported that Canada is an outlier in dealing with goods produced by slave labour in China.  While other western countries have banned goods from certain parts of China, Canada has done little to nothing.  We are starting to see now how the Chinese influence in Canada's elections is related to slave labour in China and the sale of low cost products here.

    When the right of a child to confidentiality is at issue I'd suggest the line that differentiates them from being an adult  gets really blurry.

    We're not talking about a crime after all.

    I understand you do not believe in the Bible or God, but that does not give you the right to teach your brand of morality to other people's kids.  Parents are the primary guardians of raising their children and teaching them morality, not schools or public officials.  Keep your sexual lessons away from our little ones.  People who believe in the perversions or support that kind of thing have no business trying to groom children. Stick with the three Rs.

    Well, as always, it's been a fascinating ten minutes.  Go ahead, have the last word.

    Actually there are many people, maybe millions, who have never studied the Bible, but assume Jesus was some kind of Socialist.  That is why many Latin Americans supported Communist revolutions and Socialism.  You even have a place like Honduras that recently has joined hands with Communist China.  Then you have Cuba.  All kinds of religious people (Romanists mainly) in these countries and many of them believe Jesus was a tolerant Socialist or Communist and a progressive that somehow approves of LGBT, MAID, etc.

    The problem with this thinking is it is totally contrary to what the Bible says.


    Socialism advocates forced redistribution, the Bible prohibits theft.

    The thing about socialism is that it can’t work without taking away the liberty and freedom of citizens. Socialism only works if the government can force individuals to give up their property (money or assets) to the whims or desires of the state. If even a few prominent citizens did not want to give up their assets, the system could not be initiated. Thus, the system of socialism necessitates forced redistribution."

    Well, sure, your Jesus.  My Jesus probably has more chance of having existed.

    I don't know what exactly you mean, but it sounds like you make up your own belief system.  Sorry to have to break it to you but there is only one truth, the King James Bible.   If you want to know the truth, you have to read and study it.  Otherwise you are living in a fictitious world.

    Well I never actually met him, but I'm pretty sure he would have been extremely intolerant of those who would punish others for loving each other.  Worse than money lenders, I bet!

    Which is the only one you care about, right?  Or you wouldn't have thrown it in with the rest. 

    Jesus was tolerant and forgave those who accept Him as Lord and Savior, but those who reject Him are a different matter.  Jesus clearly taught salvation is by faith in him.  Those who reject that face eternal damnation.    That is really all there is to say about "tolerance".

    Fill your boots.  Jesus was a tolerant guy.

    He was not tolerant of unbelievers.    "36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. "   John 3:36 KJV

    He was tolerant of those who believe on him, but non-believers is a whole different matter.  His gospel says they are on their way to eternal damnation.

    What, you think he was evil?  What kind of a Christian are you?

    I never said he was a God.  I said he was a tolerant guy.  Not of money lenders, of course, but apparently he liked good Samaritans.  He seemed like quite a nice fellow.

    Nicer than you, anyway.

    I'm 100% sure he was nicer than me.  He was God.  I am a fallen sinner saved by grace through Jesus Christ.  You are also a fallen sinner, but see yourself as someone who doesn't need God or the Savior or salvation. You have a serious problem.  You are part of the corrupt, fallen world but don't even recognize your problem. 

    Using the name of Jesus in a discussion when you don't even believe in God, Jesus or the Bible is pretty dicy.

  8. Appointing Johnson as a "special rappateur" just shows how unethical Trudeau is.

    Johnston has known deep connections with China as do his children.  Yet he was supposed to be representing the interests of Canada in investigating the Chinese interference.  He was the last person on earth who should have been appointed to do that job.  The local dog catcher would have been a better choice.

    Trudeau should really step down next.  I don't see how Canadians could possibly trust him to protect our democratic system which already appears badly compromised by Chinese interference.

    How many other prominent Canadians or influential Canadians have deep roots in China?  That is something that should also be investigated and reported to Canadians.

  9. What we have been hearing about for months may be only the tip of the iceberg.

    Since Trudeau appointed the former GG as a special Rappateur, the debate has been centred on Johnston's connections with Trudeau, the Trudeau Foundation and the Liberal Party.

    This article points out his love for and ties to China over the decades.  Yet little or none of this was mentioned by the media or journalists the past few months.  How could he have possibly been an impartial  investigator of Chinese interference with his affection for China?   How could Trudeau have possibly appointed someone like this?  Certainly Johnston's history with China would have been well known by Trudeau and his advisors.  This raises a lot of questions.

    "“He’s obviously both in love with and infatuated by the PRC. When you are madly in love with someone, you want to be close to that person. You want to be loved by that person. You won’t do anything to jeopardize the relationship and you can’t see, or don’t want to see, the ugly side of that person.”

    Critics say David Johnston was compromised by his deep affection for China (msn.com)

  10. This came as a welcome surprise to learn there is a national group which has developed some tools to fight back against the SOGI 123 education agenda and grooming of young children in sexual orientation, gender identity and everything that goes with it.  The organization is called Action4Canada and you can read all about it and see some of their legal tools they have.

    Notice of Liability to Remove Explicit Books & Radical LGBTQ Learning Resource | Action4Canada

    These NOLS or Notices of Liability are legal forms that they make available.

    These are excellent tools and this has placed teacher unions, officials, libraries, and others on defence.  The pushback is growing stronger and Action4Canada has the knowledge and abilities to press ahead.   They should be supported in every way possible.


    Action4Canada has created the SOGI/CSE Notice of Liability  advising Trustees, Ministers, Teachers, Librarians etc, that they will be held personally liable for exposing minors to any form of pornography/sexually explicit material, activities or organizations promoting sexual deviancy and the exploitation of minors. Use the NOL and demand that; the SOGI-123/Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) learning resource be immediately and completely removed from libraries and the education system; all of the books listed, including titles by the same authors, be immediately removed; and that all educational facilities including libraries cease and desist promotion of any and all activities, performers and clubs that exploit vulnerable minors.

    We also encourage you to further demand a Freedom of Information request for all the details (to include emails, attachments and any other correspondence of who approved these books, as well as the grounds for this approval, any instructions given from anyone else in relation to this approval, and minutes of all meetings in relation to all such approvals.

    Good News: As a result of Action4Canada leaders and volunteers serving the SOGI/CSE NOL and working to bring public awareness to the agenda to sexualize children using the education system and public libraries; the governmentthe teachers union; Reg Krake, Executive Director, of the ARC Foundation; the media (report 1 an  report 2); the BCTLA and the Canadian Federation of Library Associations, are all publicly responding in an effort to defend their position, and thereby exposing themselves to greater liability. It is a criminal offense to sexualize and exploit children, and attempting to disguise it as anything other than this does not change the fact that it is unlawful.

    Parents and concerned citizens, we cannot ignore this message. Our children and youth are being subjected to twisted ideologies using social justice as a means to indoctrinate and groom them. From the highly politicized radical LGBTQ agenda to the made-up critical race theory, the government has a target on our children’s heads and we need to step up and put a STOP to it.

    Denying human caused climate change now is basically on a par with denying the Earth is a sphere.  I don't really believe that those who do deny it actually believe what they are saying.  I think they are just afraid someone will take away their toys.

    You and SpankyMcFarland believe the climate hysteria because you are sucked into the climate hysteria tsunami.  NO other reason.  You know nothing about any science around it.   You are the type that just FOLLOWS THE HERD.


    The video above is from Friends of Science, a Canada-based “non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers comprised mainly of active and retired earth and atmospheric scientists, engineers, and other professionals.” On the same day last week that Greta Thunberg made an impassioned speech to the United Nations about her fears of a climate emergency, a group of 500 prominent scientists and professionals, led by the CLINTEL co-founder Guus Berkhout, sent this registered letter to the United Nations Secretary-General stating that there is no climate emergency and climate policies should be designed to benefit the lives of people. Here’s the press release, here’ the list of 500 signees, and here’s the opening of the letter:

    A global network of more than 500 knowledgeable and experienced scientists and professionals in climate and related fields have the honor to address to Your Excellencies the attached European Climate Declaration, for which the signatories to this letter are the national ambassadors. The general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is at present founded are unfit for their purpose.

    Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions of dollars on the basis of results from such immature models. Current climate policies pointlessly and grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, reliable electrical energy. We urge you to follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation

    Here are the specific points about climate change highlighted in the letter:

    1 Natural as well as anthropogenic factors cause warming.
    2. Warming is far slower than predicted.
    3. Climate policy relies on inadequate models.
    4. CO2 is not a pollutant. It is a plant food that is essential to all life on Earth. Photosynthesis is a blessing. More CO2 is beneficial for nature, greening the Earth: additional CO2 in the air has promoted growth in global plant biomass. It is also good for agriculture, increasing the yields of crops worldwide.
    5. Global warming has not increased natural disasters.
    6. Climate policy must respect scientific and economic realities.
    7. There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic.

    MP: What about that “consensus” and “settled science” about climate change we always hear about? How can there be a consensus when there’s a global network of more than 500 knowledgeable and experienced scientists and professionals in climate and related fields who challenge the “settled science”?

    Actually, challenging the consensus among the scientific community is nothing new, but those the voices of those challenging the consensus are always drowned out by the tsunami of climate hysteria from the climate alarmists. For example, in 2012 a group of more than 125 scientists sent an open letter to the United Nations warning that scientific evidence refuted UN Secretary-General’s Ban Ki-Moon repeated assertions on weather and climate. Those warnings of climate hysteria unsupported by the scientific evidence were ignored in 2012, just like the letter from the 500 prominent scientists and professionals will be ignored in 2019. In other words, it’s “deja vu all over again.”

    The person I was quoting said 97% of CO2 was natural and other unscientific nonsense.

    hahahahaha.    Wow, what ignorance!   You better do a little study before commenting.  You just said the dumbest thing possible.   You don't even know the basics of CO2 in the atmosphere.  Dealing with you is child's play.

    Okay I'll bite, what is it that will be worse?

    Natural CO2 emissions caused by wildfires.

  13. I just read a sentence on Wikipedia where it said CO2 has increased in the atmosphere by 50% since the start of the Industrial Revolution.

    Can you believe this?   This is like saying the amount of oxygen or any other gas in the atmosphere changed by 50% in a couple hundred years.  Or that the amount of water in the ocean increased by 50%.  Total nonsense.

    CO2 is a trace gas in the atmosphere and 97% of the CO2 is there by nature or naturally.

    " This is an increase of 50% since the start of the Industrial Revolution, up from 280 ppm during the 10,000 years prior to the mid-18th century.[4][3][5] The increase is due to human activity.[6]"

    Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere - Wikipedia

    If anyone wants to believe this, that's up to them.   I don't.   The truth is they should have said the amount of CO2 emitted by human causes increased since the Industrial Revolution perhaps by 50% but the total CO2 certainly did not.  97% of the atmosphere is natural CO2 and man contributes only 3% to begin with.  But they conveniently did not mention that.

    I have absolutely no reason to hype this problem. I wish it wasn’t there. But it is. All the science points that way and the science was denied and resisted for decades by the oil industry, wasn’t it? Should we in the West sit around and do nothing until China joins us? The fires will not be going away, and this year is already very worrying on the fire front:


    And you still think putting more and more carbon taxes on everyone and killing our vital energy industry will stop climate change and these forest fires.  Sad.  Climate change is natural and man cannot stop it any more than stop the hurricanes every year.

  15. It is a Biblical fact that Satan exists and is a very powerful being in this world.  Non-believers are unknowingly serving him constantly.  But there is deliverance possible.  Spending your life as a servant of Satan is a real waste of life and may have a very bitter, unhappy ending as well as disastrous consequences in this life as countless people have found.   If you want to be delivered, the King James Bible is a good place to start.  Satan is no match for the triune God and His Son Jesus Christ.  There is no other way to be delivered.  Serious questions welcome, but only serious.

    For the moment, the catastrophic conditions we are facing have been largely caused by us in the West, and not yet by China. To those in Western and northern Canada facing this horrific new man-made age of fire, all I can say is good luck. 

    You are dreaming in technicolour.  You have a totally false conception of climate change and what it is caused by.

    Atmospheric CO2 is 97% caused by nature and it is an essential gas for life on earth.

    Man's contribution of CO2 to the atmosphere is miniscule.  

    There is no proof man's small contribution is even causing climate change.  There are many factors that contribute to climate change.  

    There is no science that ever proved man is causing global warming or climate change.

    Canada's fossil fuel CO2 contribution to the atmosphere is a very small part of the whole of what man contributes .   Man contributes about 3% of the total CO2.  Out of that China contributes 28% and Canada contributes a tiny fraction of that.

    Climate has changed throughout history many times.

    The earth has had many hot periods throughout history long before the industrial age, that is before motor vehicles existed.   Nothing to do with man.

    Quit smoking all that pot.

    Don't say I never do anything for you...

    With a total estimated carbon footprint of 270 million tonnes, wildfire emissions were the single biggest source of greenhouse gases in 2021, equivalent to what would be emitted by 60 million cars over the course of a year.


    Good work!!!   I was purely speculating but looks like I hit the nail on the head.  Too bad Trudeau, minister Guilbeault and the rest of the war-on-climate-change clowns will never recognize it and admit they are wasting their time and our money. 

     If that was it for 2021 imagine how much worse it will be for 2023 as the fires are much worse.

  18. This news item gives a fairly good idea of the political beliefs of the present Pope.  It reveals he is a progressive, Socialist, and his beliefs have nothing to do with Biblical Christianity.  He is a kind of populist and believes and advocates what appeals to the heathen world.  It is all about winning popularity with unbelievers or non-Christian heathen.  That is what matters to him.  Bible truth is of no consequence.  He must actually believe that Jesus was some kind of Socialist or progressive, which of course is a blasphemy.

    Pope Francis: all you need to know about the Progressive Pontiff (msn.com)

    First of all Socialism or wealth re-distribution is contrary to the commandment 'thou shalt not steal".

    Secondly, his embracing all religions is exactly contrary to what Jesus would do.  Jesus taught there is no salvation apart from faith in Him.  See gospel of John for proof.

    Embracing people with unbiblical beliefs on sexuality and in effect, condoning it all is also completely contrary to what Jesus and the Bible teaches.  The Bible says to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness.  He obviously rejects the Bible and believes acknowledging anything and everything as acceptable.  This is secular humanism, which God rejects in the Bible.  This is much like what Trudeau, Biden, and other Liberal Papists do.   Trudeau said today to people who wanted pride flags at schools who rejected them, not to worry;  the government will fly a pride flag on Parliament Hill.

    The Pope is the complete opposite of Jesus Christ and advocates and promotes everything that is in direct opposition to God and the Bible.  He may win popularity contests in this world.  Jesus took the opposite position as did his believers.  That is why he was crucified and his followers were persecuted and martyred over the centuries.  The same situation exists today in the world.  

    If you want to be loved by the world, follow the Pope's example.  

    "13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: {strait: or, narrow} 14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  Matthew 7:13 KJV

    But, in that post, you said “refugees”. 

    Yes, you are correct.  I did use the word refugee because I was replying to you question.  You said

    "Would you be in favour of allowing a ship of Muslim refugees to land in Canada from Iran who are trying to escape the Ayatollah?"

    You also referred to one ship of Muslim refugees.  I answered accordingly.

    Not sure what you are driving at.  I have clarified.  A ship of Muslim refugees is not the same as mass immigration.  This has drifted away from the topic quite far now.  I think I have said enough on refugees.

    In a previous post you were concerned about refugees having an impact on “white European founding people”.  

    Yes, I still am concerned.  The white European founding people are a declining people in Canada.  Refugees are not the same thing as immigrants.  I was talking about immigrants from the third world who are growing at a faster rate and the European founding people are declining in Canada.
