    The Calgary mayor has proven herself to be a radical progressive/liberal and is using her position to try to stifle freedom of expression of those who oppose the woke nonsense.  She is not representing all the people of Calgary although that is what a mayor should be doing.

    I hope the bylaw is challenged in court even though I don't hold out a lot of hope with the liberal courts.

    I dont' know that it's passed yet.

    When I was on the now-defunct amazon politics forum, I kept getting banned.

    I can't imagine why with such riveting content.

    Look - this isn't hard. If you want to be taken seriously just post things that are relevant to the discussion and more useful than  going zzzzzz like you're a 15 year old or something.

    Sorry... disloyal to the country to be more precise, ie acting against the interests of Canada

    That's pretty radically different and is a perfectly valid statement from the leader of the opposition given the circumstances. That's kind of his job.

    It's noteworthy that in comparing PP and Justin you used real quotes from justin but had to fabricate quotes from PP to make your point. And even in your 'correction' you have to throw in words that were never said - he didn't call him disloyal or use that word at all. He said he is not acting in the interests of Canada. You can't even just say that without embellishing because the truth just doesn't sound all that unreasonable.

    If the simple truth doesn't work for you - then it's time to reconsider your position.

    Carson Jerema: Trudeau 'family friend' David Johnston not the man to restore election confidence

    "There is no indication that Johnston is anything but a man of integrity, which is why he should have turned down the special rapporteur job "

    Groot called it.

  5. This problem is deeply systemic and very difficult to resolve.  Remember it's not just politicians who might want everything kept quiet. A lot of times errors show up in the bureaucracy and civil servants and they don't want to wear it any more than the gov't does, and they're often thrown under the bus.

    So even when a gov't gets in that wants more transparency, the actual bureaucracy resists that and finds ways to remain safely opaque.

    I have no idea what the answer is. You'd need like a decade or more of gov'ts that were committed to resolving that to get it fixed and not many are - it's not generally in their interest either.

    What a surprise....NOT!!

    This has been going on , not just with the Chinese, but with any country, group, organization or company for ever.

    It goes on everywhere but other countries try to fight it. We seem to tolerate it and the liberals seem to encourage  it.

    Canadians have to get mad about this if they want to actually keep their sovereignty

    If Trudeau isn't going to give Canadians an official inquiry led by a judge he should at least found someone with fewer ties to him and his party. As the saying goes, justice not only needs to be unbiased it needs to be seen to be unbiased.

    precisely.  Even if he gives the most honest and accurate report possible it'll still be tainted by his connections. If the point is to restore confidence then this failes massively

    I had never even heard the word "rappporteur" before let alone what they do.

    I guess he will "report" something LOL

    That makes sense. French for reporter or something.  I thought it meant he was going to deliver his findings in musical rhythm.

    DO baba do DO baba do...

    Hangin' with the homies, drinkin wine and chillin'

    Chinese say 'here's money', of course we say we's willin'

    So we sold our votes for money that was free

  10. Oh For FRAKS SAKE -  just found this:

    https://globalnews.ca/news/9556099/david-johnston-special-rapporteur-china-canada-interference/

    Johnston is also a member of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation, according to the organization’s website. The charity recently made headlines after it returned a $200,000 donation it received seven years ago following a Globe and Mail report alleging a potential connection to Beijing.

    Welp. My confidence in the process is restored.

    Trudeau names former GG David Johnston as new independent special rapporteur

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has named former governor general David Johnston as the new independent special rapporteur who will be looking into foreign interference.

    Tasked with helping "protect the integrity of Canada's democracy," Trudeau has announced his intention to appoint Johnston, following consultations with all parties in the House of Commons.

    So the guy that trudeau gave a cushy job and lifetime gold plated pension to will now be investigating if trudeau is a bad guy. Seems like THAT will restore confidence.

    Quote

    "Canadians need to have confidence in our electoral system, and in our democracy.

    That's easy mr trudeau - quit.

    - how I would see the world if I had the morally superior DNA of women, or of gay or coloured men, coursing through my veins?

    From about 10,000 ft and through a filtered lens.

    Jokes aside, it is upsetting that while DEMANDING that cultures like gays and trans be accepted and welcomed because thats how we behave in a loving and caring society, the same people demand that cis white males are scum and evil and should not be tolerated and are resposible for everything including all slavery in history right down to when the pull tab breaks off your drink before you open it. You know those big spiders in the garage? Cis white men put them there.

  13. https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/2-edmonton-police-officers-shot-and-killed-sources-1.6315617

    Two Edmonton Police Service patrol officers were killed while responding to a call early Thursday morning, the city's police service has confirmed.

    EPS did not give any other details about what happened. Chief Dale McFee will make a statement at 10 a.m. Watch the event live on CTVNewsEdmonton.ca.

    According to internal police communication shared with CTV News Edmonton, the officers were dispatched to a domestic dispute call at an apartment building near 114 Avenue and 132 Street around 12:45 a.m. The EPS memo says the officers were shot by a male there and died in hospital. A person who police called "the male subject" was also said to be dead. The female who called police was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

    Those details have not been confirmed publicly.

    Absolutely horrific.

    Here's a concerning point:

    One resident told CTV News Edmonton he didn't hear anything overnight and was surprised to find police set up outside his home in the morning when he left for work.

    "It's frightening. I'm very worried about it. My child's safety. I've never had this problem here," Tom Deagle said.

    "We're trying to get out of here, out of this neighbourhood, because it's constantly stuff, but I've never seen to this extent. It's pretty worrying."

    Noting gun and gang violence is up across Canada, CTV News' public safety analyst called the situation in Edmonton "very sad commentary."

    "Canada is still a relatively safe country but we have these incidents up here increasing and we need to do everything as a country – not just police but everybody – to try to prevent this kind of thing from continuing," Chris Lewis said.

    Violent crime is going up. People are frightened. And so far the gov'ts only actions have been to pass or allow laws that make it easier for criminals to get on the streets.

    we have to start taking this seriously regardless of political leaning.

    Sure they have, kids will grow up confused causing them suffer

    That is not trauma. You're not tramatized just because you're confused.

    And if they have to grow up first then talking about them being traumatized a short time after the event really wouldn't count would it.

    But  of course you have to lie about what was said to try to make your point. 

    After all - it's what lying liberals do  :)

    3. Does this happen ?  Do dictatorships get professional associations to make up standards to enforce their dictatorships ?  I feel like we're out on a limb here.

    Not to veer off topic but it was an interesting question - it ABSOLUTELY happens. We saw it with the soviets regarding gays, we saw it with the chinese regarding a number of things, certainly the nazis, we even see examples of it back to the romans and certainly the catholic church was guilty of it.

    It's very very useful to the tyrant. If people are uneasy about gays and you want to appeal to the people just announce that professionals (who's familes are currently 'inspecting' your jails under the castle :) ) have agreed that homosexuals are dangerous deviants and it's a mental sickness and such people are a danger to society and must be locked up for everyone's safety. I mean  if a guy would allow another guy to put his hoo-hah up his tush, then who's to say he's not crazy enough to murder your family and everyone you care about?

    Sound familiar? (I'm looking at you Mr Hoover)

    Hell they had a 'standard' for determining if someone was a witch. Seriously - there were manuals and everything. The 'experts' of the day would investigate and apply the standards and there you go, definitely a witch by professional standards - hopefully she doesn't turn you into a newt.

    So it's definitely a thing


    One last note -

    I have to put up with Poilievre hyperbole ... saying that Trudeau is a traitor etc.  Trudeau saying that the Convoy was a fringe minority.

    There is a HUGE difference - MASSIVE difference - between two federal leaders critisizing each other and the head of the federal gov't attack large hunks of the citizens he is supposed to be serving. It's a massive thing. And while Pierre has never actually called trudeau a traitor, trudeau HAS claimed the truckers were a fringe minority AND claimed the vax hesitant are bigots and wastes of space that should not be tolerated.

    What politicians say MATTERS. It does. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Yes... in my thoroughly pointless discussions on liberalforum.org and liberalforum.net... quite a number of posters were insistent that drag queen story hours (or in my case.. 15 minutes) cause long term damage to children. As to what this damage is... they could never say or quantify. 

    Soooooo..... you're commenting here on a discussion that didn't happen here that you didn't mention to anyone about something nobody here believes and haven't heard people say. And we're to take this as verbatum after trying to guess what you meant and what conversations you've had elsewhere with others. 

    Well.  YOUR credibility is certainly improved :)

    Nobody here is making any claim about the children being traumatized and i've never heard anyone make that claim, so if you found some tiny number of people somewhere who did that would be your problem, go comment about it there.

    FFS.  We can't hear the voices in your head, maybe stick to the discussion here while you're here. Or at least tell us what the hell you're talking about first.

    Because it's basic human decency and justice.  Why do i have to explain that to you? That should be pretty obvious.

    They were poorly written and poorly conceived laws that were expected to be challenged and fail when they were implemented, and using a constitutionally murky tool like the notwithstanding clause to subvert the Courts would have been stinky. 

    You have to be 11 different kinds of dim to think that there's anything constitutionally murky about the notwithstanding clause.  And the laws were perfectly fine, but if he prefers different language that does the same thing then fine.

    He absolutely should have - he didn't because he's pretty much pro-criminal and the crime rates since he got in reflect his stance.

    Over half of the Supreme Court Judges ruling against these are Conservative appointees, and the (Liberal) Justice Department had asked them to uphold the Law.   

    Well no, they're not conservative appointees. Do a little research before looking foolish pls.  Go look at how they were appointed.

    But regardless - no problem. that's what the notwithstanding clause is for. Fix the law and put it back.

    23 minutes ago, Moonbox said:

     

    The Supreme Court also invited the government to rewrite the laws and fix what was wrong, rather than just shut the hole thing down as in principle.  

    Which justin didn't.

    23 minutes ago, Moonbox said:

    Trudeamanbad though, so we obviously have to blame him for everything.  ?

    Well we DO have to blame him for the things he actually did :)

    But i love that you're going back to the old "it's harper's fault" liberal standby :)   Justin allows the law to collapse, justin refuses to fix it and reinstate it, justin refuses to use the lawful tools at his disposal to keep mass murderers behind  bars and why?  Because it's harper's fault.  :) LOLOL  

    Well at least the ignorance from the liberal side is consistent :)

    Hey - that law justin passed which has directly resulted in dozens of people being killed including women and police... i'm really waiting to hear how that's harper's fault too :)

    Justin has no problem with people suffering or dying from crime as long as he doesn't have to actually do anything.

     since when did we put our faith in to the government, when did we start trusting them to the point we believe them about this, and not vaccines, or climate change, or gun control, or health care, education, 1 million genders, the list goes on...

    Since June 25th 1968 actually.

    Most don't question any of it. They believe there's a billion genders they believe refusing the vaccine is tantamount to murder, they are convinced the carbon tax will sort out climate change. That is the majority of Canadians.

    I have seen enough red flags in the media to start asking questions, talking to friends still serving and they time after time say it is a lot worse than they are saying... 

    And always has been.

    The problem is the gov't has better media people than the military.

    And after all that because i'm not the only veteran talking about this... the guys still serving are screaming about it on social media..., which perplexes me on how people do not know, or maybe they hear what they want to hear...

    Not a single one was struck down by Trudeau, they were all struck down by the Court which includes many Tory appointed Judges.

    Which trudeau could easily fix by using the notwithstanding clause.  You remember - he's the one currently screaming about how important it is to let the court strike down a law first and THEN use it. Using it per-emptively is a horrible thing according to him.

    You think Clifford Olson is ever gonna stand a chance of being paroled before he's a drooling crippled old geezer in a wheelchair in the corner of some old folks home?

    I think the families of the children get to relive that horror every time he comes up for it and they have to give another impact statement.

    And .... now pay attention, this might be challenging for you....  if your argument is that they will never get out anyway, THEN WHY PRETEND TO GIVE THEM THE CHANCE IN THE FIRST PLACE !!!!

    Either there is a chance for them to get out - which there shouldn't be - or there is NO chance in which case leave the law in place.  VERY SIMPLE
