I voted for Justin Trudeau and I’m sorry

In 2015, I voted for Justin Trudeau.

I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed youngster. At 19 years old, not having worked a full-time job, and still living in my parent’s home, never really paying taxes or having to worry about rent, I decided that my vote should go to Justin Trudeau.

I was hungry for change, and Stephen Harper did not represent that to me. I wanted to see real change. I knew the world was unfair, but I didn’t fully understand why.
I was young, naive, and wanted change. Justin Trudeau tricked me into supporting him, and I still regret casting my vote to the Liberal Party to this day.

When the prime minister becomes a joke, who's the joke on?

Without a doubt, much hilarity ensued when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted out a photograph of his riding’s youth brigade chowing down on delivery pizza with a sizable pile of plastic cutlery posing front and centre.

Only days before, Trudeau announced his party’s high and mighty ban on a potpourri of nasty plastics that include bags, cutlery, straws, fast-food containers and even balloon sticks — “where supported by science,” he added — putting “as early as 2021” as a soft date for their banishment.

Andrew Scheer Releases Strong Statement In Support Of Hong Kong

onservative Leader Andrew Scheer has issued a strong statement in support of Hong Kong and the fight for freedom against Communist China.

Here’s what Scheer said on Twitter:

“As Beijing amasses troops at the Hong Kong border, now is the time for everyone committed to democracy, freedom, human rights, and the rule of law to stand with the people of Hong Kong, including the 300,000 ex-pat Canadians. Now, and in the coming days, we are all Hong Kongers:”

California’s Background Check Law Had No Impact on Gun Deaths, Johns Hopkins Study Finds

The findings—which run counter to the conventional wisdom that gun control saves lives—have received almost no media attention.

A new academic study has found that, once again, gun laws are not having their desired effect.

A joint study conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of California at Davis Violence Prevention Research Program found that California’s much-touted mandated background checks had no impact on gun deaths, and researchers are puzzled as to why.

'They just don't work': San Antonio police chief opposes city's proposed gun buyback program

Chief's comments come minutes after 2 council members presented idea at presser

San Antonio Police Department Chief William McManus said Tuesday that he doesn't support the idea of a voluntary gun buyback program in the city.

His statements in opposition to the proposal came minutes after two San Antonio City Council members — District 2's Jada Andrews-Sullivan and District 9's John Courage — held a press conference to outline the buyback program.

"You know I think it's a noble idea but in reality they're ineffective. They just don't work," McManus said. "... I don't think that gun buybacks are effective and I think that spending any money on it on an ineffective program is not worthwhile."

The Trudeau government is surveilling your social media for anti-immigrant and anti-Trudeau views

According to internal emails obtained by True North from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the Trudeau government appointed a team of staffers to surveil the comments of Canadians for “bigoted” immigration criticism.

A total of 12 “communications and social media staffers” were involved in a “social care” team which was tasked with surveilling tweets and Reddit posts by Canadian citizens.

Desperate Liberals try blaming Trudeau’s unpopularity on bots

Whenever something negative about Andrew Scheer is trending on Twitter—like #scheerweakness—Liberals are glad to tweet about it.

Yet, whenever a negative hashtag about Justin Trudeau starts spreading, the Liberals start whining and complaining about “bots.”

The latest example is an article posted on Medium that tried claiming a bunch of people were bots because they had tweeted and retweeted criticism of the PM:

“BOTS, AGAIN! 🤣 In a boosted advertisement that has gotten him suspended from Twitter, a Liberal activist has again tried to spin anti-Trudeau campaigns as “bot driven.” His “watch-lists” include the NCC and election fellow @SpencerFernando”

Walmart will bar shoppers from openly carrying guns in its stores and stop selling some ammunition in response to 2 deadly shootings

Walmart is barring shoppers from openly carrying guns in its stores and ending the sale of some types of ammunition in response to two deadly shootings at its stores, the company said on Tuesday.

"After selling through our current inventory commitments, we will discontinue sales of short-barrel rifle ammunition such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber that, while commonly used in some hunting rifles, can also be used in large capacity clips on military-style weapons," Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in a memo to employees on Tuesday.

Business strategy expert breaks down Walmart's end to handgun ammo sales

"They have built a business that includes selling firearms and ammunition," business strategy expert Matthew Mitchell said. "So, this week's decision really represents a change from that strategy."

Mitchell said the bold move will hurt Walmart in the short term. The company estimates its share will drop from 20% to 6%.

He said the same thing happened to Dick's Sporting Goods in 2018 after the company made a similar decision to pull ammunition from its shelves.

"Since that time, they have posted 2.3% growth year over year for this last quarter, which is a significant improvement," Mitchell said.

As noted by Grabien News, during a recent appearance on the late-night show of another political genius, Jimmy Kimmel (enter sarcasm here), Cortez sounded more like a clueless hipster than a national leader:

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, those things were “like,” “yeah,” and also, “um, for sure.”

The Unauthorized List of Trudeau Untruths: Outright Lies, Evasions, Non-Answers, and other Equivocations

Have you ever looked at Daniel Dale’s “Unauthorized Database of False Things” said by U.S. President Donald Trump and said, “Boy, I wish our media would apply the same level of scrutiny to our leaders”? Of course you haven’t, because nobody has looked at Daniel Dale’s list in the last year. We just content ourselves with the fact that it exists.

Here, then, because Daniel Dale doesn’t have time to make one, is the definitive and continuously updated list of false statements Trudeau has made. Here are the rules:

Can Liberals shift focus from their favoured minorities to the majority?

That Canadians perceive the divisive nature of Trudeau Liberalism is evidenced by the Liberals’ decline in the polls

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a big believer in the advice of foreign experts.

In the months after the 2015 election Liberals were addressed on several occasions by Sir Michael Barber, a British expert of “deliverology,” who advised on ways to keep the avalanche of promises they’d made. Later they heard from David Axelrod, a key strategist for former president Barack Obama, who was invited to “motivate and inspire and focus” party members mulling a platform for re-election.

A quarter of Albertans favour separating from Canada, says poll

The percentage of Albertans favouring separation from Canada is 25 per cent, a number that nearly rivals that in Quebec, says a new poll.

While the Abacus Data poll of 1,500 adults from July 12 to 17 shows 28 per cent of Quebecers favour breaking ties with the rest of the country, the 25 per cent of Albertans is 79 per cent higher than the national average of 14 per cent.

“Not in my lifetime did I expect to see Alberta almost as much as Quebec in separatism sentiment,” said Abacus Data’s David Coletto, who also noted that outlook in Quebec has been on the downslide in recent years.

Southwest Airlines is formally allowing miniature horses on its planes as service animals

From September 2017, the airline will only let dogs, cats, and miniature horses in the cabin, according to a statement on its website.

The new policy also includes a list of animals that are not eligible to come on board, which features insects, spiders, rabbits, ferrets, or rodents.

Trudeau broke law in SNC-Lavalin scandal, refuses to apologize

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the media after the bombshell report dropped hours earlier by the third party Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion, which confirmed what many Canadians already believed; that Justin Trudeau had inappropriately pressured then-Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould in what would soon be known as the SNC-Lavalin Scandal.

Trudeau addressed the media at Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario, in a much-anticipated response. Media pundits speculated whether the prime minister would apologize, with many iterating that this would be the first time Trudeau would have to face the verified fact that Trudeau acted inappropriately.

America’s Public Schools Have Become Socialist Indoctrination Factories

One of the most commonly expressed answers to these questions is that America’s higher education system has turned into a bastion for leftist thought. A 2018 study of more than 8,600 tenure-track professors by Brooklyn College professor Mitchell Langbert found registered Democrats outnumber Republicans at 51 of America’s leading liberal arts colleges by a ratio of 10.4 to one.

As important as bias on college campuses is, it’s only one piece of the puzzle. Much of the problem goes back much further, to K–12 schools, where only 27 percent of teachers identify as Republicans, according to a national survey by the Education Week Research Center. Not only are K–12 teachers more likely to vote for Democrats and favor left-wing causes, socialist ideas permeate nearly every aspect of government-run schools.

Liberals To Give Dairy Farmers $1.75B To Make Up For Trade Deal Losses

Canadian dairy farmers who lost domestic market share resulting from free trade agreements with Europe and countries on the Pacific Rim will share $1.75 billion in compensation over the next eight years, Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau announced Friday.

The country’s roughly 11,000 dairy producers — about half of whom are in Quebec — will receive $345 million to be distributed this year, Bibeau told reporters on a farm in Compton, Que. She promised a similar program when the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement comes into force.

Democracy Watch says Trudeau's staff should also be found guilty of violating ethics rules in SNC-Lavalin case

Mario Dion concluded that the prime minister's actions didn't conform with section 9 when he tried to influence former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to reconsider the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.

This section prohibits public office holders from using their position to seek to influence a decision of another person so as to advance their own private interests or those of a relative or friend, or to improperly further another person's private interests.

Trudeau guilty, just before Hell was about to freeze over

Federal Ethics Commission Mary Dawson has given Canadians an early Christmas present by formally finding Prime Minister Justin Trudeau guilty of breaking the law with his Yuletide vacation in 2016 to the sun-drenched private Caribbean island of the Aga Khan.

Most of us thought she was waiting for Hell to freeze over before making her ruling, although she did come close.

Her last day on the job is Jan. 8.

During the two years the Trudeau Liberals have been in power, it has become increasingly obvious that the PM and his cabinet cohorts have a tin ear when it comes to issues involving ethics.

Justin Trudeau makes historic visit to Canadian gay bar

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau geared up for his country’s Pride Weekend by stopping by a gay bar Monday night, surprising customers there — and making history, according to local reports. Trudeau may be the first prime minister to visit a gay bar, but this is not his first display of support for the LGBTQ community.

In 2016, he became the first Canadian prime minister to march in a pride parade. Trudeau was seen waving rainbow flags, dancing and taking photos with parade attendees in the streets of Toronto, BBC News reports.

Trudeau wants to repeal law on anal sex, wipe out past convictions

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government will introduce a law to expunge the criminal records of persons convicted of homosexual-related offences when buggery or sodomy were banned under Canada’s Criminal Code.

“Our government believes in equality and equal treatment for all Canadians,” Trudeau announced June 14.

“That is why we are moving forward on legislation that makes it possible to erase the convictions of Canadians who were unjustly convicted of a crime – simply for who they were, or who they loved.”

The legislation will expunge convictions on charges of gross indecency under “historical, unjust laws for sexual activity with a same sex partner,” according to the press statement.

U.S. Fencer Kneels During Anthem, Trashes America at Pan Am Games in Peru

American fencer Race Imboden deserves induction into the “Hall of Shame” for kneeling on the victory stand at the Pan American Games and dishonoring his country on social media Friday. The Democratic Underground certainly loves his tweet blaming a “hateful” President for his pathetic protest, and Bleacher Report gave him a platform for encouraging other athletes to disrespect the U.S. flag.

Along with teammates Gerek Meinhardt and Nick Itkin, Imboden helped the USA defeat Brazil, 45-23 in the team foil gold-medal match. Meinhardt and Itkin were the real heroes of the day Friday ― for standing, for representing the United States with dignity and for respecting all who sacrificed for the freedom we enjoy today.

How the New Democrats could create 300,000 new green jobs

As part of our federal election coverage, CBC News is assessing the truthfulness and accuracy of statements made by politicians and their parties.

The Claim: "Our plan to fight climate change will create at least 300,000 new jobs."

-- A central pledge from the NDP's Power to Change: A New Deal for Climate Action and Good Jobs

The Facts:

The federal New Democrats are promising to create at least 300,000 "good jobs" over the next four years if elected. And the party's climate change strategy makes it clear that those employment gains would come in the sectors of infrastructure, transit, housing and renewable energy.

Mélanie Richer, the party's communications director, says the figure is a "conservative estimate" of the jobs that will be created by the $15 billion in green investments that an NDP government would make over its first mandate, including $6.5 billion for mass transit, $3.5 billion to spur the transition to renewable energy and $2.5 billion targeted at making communities and homes more energy efficient.

TMX board approved additional $5M in future bonuses for federally owned project

$3M will go to Crown corp's executives and $2.48M to employees in 2021

Months before the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project was approved a second time, the leadership of the new government-owned pipeline company approved $5 million in future bonuses for top executives and employees to keep them onboard.

At a 2018 board meeting a week before Christmas, while the fate of the Trans Mountain expansion project was still up in the air, the board of Trans Mountain Corporation unanimously approved a package of bonuses for its executives and non-executives as an incentive for them to remain with the company through 2021.

The trouble with environmentalists

Environmentalists can be a demanding crowd. They variously want to save endangered species, save habitats, prevent damage from GM food and, of course, prevent catastrophic climate change. Worthy goals all, but often in conflict – both with each other and with humanity’s basic needs for comfortable living standards and enough to eat. Widespread concern for animal welfare and promotion of vegetarianism can be thrown into the mix. We’re left with a flurry of incompatible goals, and a cacophony of confused guidance on living ethically.

Over the past couple of months, several of my colleagues have posted comments on Bill C-68 and Bill C-69 (see here). My focus in this post is on one section that is common to Bills C-68 and C-69, which provides that when making a decision under the relevant Act, the decision-maker may or indeed must consider, among other things, “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” (see proposed section 2.5(i) of the Fisheries Act (“may”), section 22(1)(s) of the proposed Impact Assessment Act (“must”), and sections 183(2)(c), 262(2)(c) and 298(3)(c) of the proposed Canadian Energy Regulator Act (“must”)). The preamble of Bill C-69 also states that “the Government of Canada is committed to assessing how groups of women, men and gender-diverse people may experience policies, programs and projects and to taking actions that contribute to an inclusive and democratic society and allow all Canadians to participate fully in all spheres of their lives.”

Power-hungry, court-packing Democrats are making Trump's worst tendencies seem mild

Ever since the 2016 campaign, Democrats have warned that candidate and then President Trump would destroy the nation’s norms of governance.

(Note that this was before that last one became a requirement for losing Democratic candidates.)

After Trump’s election, Democrats warned — not always incorrectly — that he is straining constitutional bonds, attempting to weaken checks and balances against his own presidential power.

Ilhan Omar Stonewalling Hometown Paper On Marriage Controversy

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been uncooperative with her hometown paper’s efforts to get to the bottom of accusations that she committed marriage fraud, the paper’s political editor said.

Omar’s brief congressional career has been dogged by accusations — which she has denied — that she married a male relative, possibly her brother. Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi. Public records indicate that Omar was living with Hirsi throughout her marriage to Elmi.

That brings me to Ilhan Omar, stalwart member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States.” Read: “socialist,” even as self-described “democratic socialists” insist that they eschew the label “socialist.”

Speaking of which, what is Ilhan Omar? How far left is she?

The short answer is we genuinely don’t know — yet. The more we learn, however, the more we beg the question. It would be valuable if a liberal reporter, in a friendly interview, sat down for a deep dive into what she believes. My sense over only the las..

Lack of breastfeeding costs global economy nearly $1B every day: researchers

Not enough breastfeeding costs the global economy almost $1 billion each day due to lost productivity and healthcare costs, researchers said on Friday, as health experts urged more support for nursing mothers.

A new website developed by researchers in Canada and Asia showed that the world could have saved $341 billion each year if mothers breastfeed their children for longer, helping prevent early deaths and various diseases.

Known as the “Cost of Not Breastfeeding”, the online tool used data from a six-year study supported by the U.S.-based maternal and child nutrition initiative, Alive & Thrive.

“It is a human right, it saves lives and improves the prosperity of economies,” Canada-based health economics expert Dylan Walters said about the importance of breastfeeding.

Hungary PM: No Compromise on Migration, Protecting Christian Culture

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán reinforced his administration's commitment to defending its citizens and Christendom against all-out warfare being waged by globalists in Europe and beyond.

During a weekly interview on Hungarian public radio, PM Orbán asserted that the left-right European political divide is being replaced by one that pits pro-migration internationalists against those who believe in national sovereignty and border security.

"Europe is currently undergoing a transformation… Migration has changed our life," Orban said. "We won’t compromise on the issue of the protection of Christian culture and migration. Everything else is open for discussion."

‘Very Low Energy’ Mueller Failed to ‘Get the Bad Orange Man’

Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony amounted to a “total disaster” for Democrats, given the former FBI director’s failure to “get the bad orange man,” said Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow in an interview last Friday with the Epoch Times’ editor-in-chief Jasper Fakkert.

“I thought it was pretty embarrassing for Adam Schiff — pencil-neck Schiff — and the resistance,” said Marlow of Mueller’s testimony.

Led by Donald Trump and Boris Johnson, Disrupters Rise Globally

We are living in an age of technological disruption, so it figures that the most important trend in international politics is the rise of disrupters around the globe.

Last week’s ascension of Boris Johnson—notorious bad boy, mocker of the system that produced him, the man as responsible as anyone for tearing the bonds holding together the European Union—to become Britain’s prime minister merely extends this trend.

President Trump is, of course, the disrupter-in-chief, the most prominent leader to rise to power by proudly taking a wrecking ball to the prevailing political system. But he wasn’t the first, nor will he be the last.

Jeffrey Epstein Found Injured In Jail, Possible Suicide Attempt

Jeffrey Epstein was found injured Wednesday night in his jail cell—in what sources told New York’s NBC affiliate could be a possible suicide attempt—but the source of his injuries remains unclear.

Epstein was found semiconscious with marks on his neck and lying in fetal position on the floor of his cell. Assault by another inmate has not been ruled out, according to New York’s NBC affiliate.

Trump on Impeachment: Democrats Are Clowns, Laughed At All Over The World

President Trump responded to impeachment threats from Congressional Democrats at a media availability Friday afternoon.

"All they want to do is impede. They want to investigate. They want to go fishing. And I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing. There's no collusion, there's no obstruction, there's nothing. It's a disgrace," Trump told the press.

State urges banks, insurers to stop doing business with gun industry

Gov. Cuomo's administration is urging banks and insurance companies in New York to reconsider any ties they have to the gun industry, the Daily News has learned.

In letters to be sent as early as Wednesday, the state's top financial services regulator warns banks and insurers of the "reputational risk" they incur by doing business with the National Rifle Association and the gun industry.

In NRA v. N.Y., a timely reminder that officials can’t use their power to squelch speech

The National Rifle Association’s favorite part of the Bill of Rights is the Second Amendment, but it was the Constitution’s protection for free speech that kept alive the NRA’s lawsuit accusing top New York officials of pressuring insurers to ditch the gun rights group.

In a notably thorough 71-page ruling on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Thomas McAvoy of Albany rejected most of the NRA’s causes of action, including its allegations that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Department of Financial Services

Plastics Company Bringing Big Business to Georgia Port

A California-based plastics company has chosen the Georgia coast to open a packaging and shipping facility that will be one of the largest exporters using the Port of Savannah, Gov. Brian Kemp announced Wednesday.

Plastic Express plans to export about 25,000 cargo containers through Savannah each year. That's enough to fill roughly four big ships.

"This company in the first year will be one of the top five folks doing business with the port," Kemp told reporters at the port's docks. "This is going to be incredible for us."

Headquartered in the Los Angeles suburb of Industry, Plastic Express ships plastic and other industrial materials to customers in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa.

The company plans to hire about 160 workers at its new $172 million facility west of Savannah. CEO Ray Hufnagel said the Georgia plant will export resin used in plastic pipe and other construction materials.

Legal weed stores will be 'very chic, very modern'

This is what the end of cannabis prohibition will look like in New Brunswick: An upscale showroom with black ceilings, grey walls and a once-illicit drug displayed in brightly lit glass cases.

"Think along the lines of a jewellery store. Very chic, very modern, very clean-cut lines," New Brunswick Liquor Corp. spokesman Mark Barbour says in an interview.

"That's where the product will be kept, in locked glass cases, and from there the transaction will be made and proceed to a point-of-sale area."

With less than seven months to go before recreational marijuana is legalized, provinces and territories are scrambling to come up with plans to sell cannabis.

But only scant details have emerged about what the retail experience of buying legal weed will be like.

Ottawa lawyer Trina Fraser predicts it won't be much akin to buying a bottle ..

"Think more like tobacco as opposed to alcohol," she says. "It's not going to be like you'll walk in and there are samples."

The Gun Control Debate Is Pointless Until Liberals Admit They Want To Repeal The Second Amendment

It didn’t take long. Long before all the facts about the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas were known or even all the missing were accounted for, liberals were riding their familiar gun control hobby horses. Within hours of the atrocity, articles were being posted online from the usual suspects, like Frank Bruni and Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times and Richard Cohen of the Washington Post, trotting out familiar themes. They want laws requiring more background checks, age limits on purchases, preventing people with a record of mental illness or domestic violence from being sold weapons, so-called “smart gun” measures that can trace guns and ammunition more easily, and even suggested banning handguns.

As is the case with most of the mass shootings that have shocked Americans in recent decades, none of these measures would have prevented the slaughter in Las Vegas. Initial reports say that shooter Stephen Paddock passed background checks when he purchased weapons. That makes sense since the police have initially said he didn’t have a record of prior offenses.

The Democratic Party is in a socialist spiral

The “progressive” Left has put together an "Saturday Night Live" sketch of presidential campaign promises, and they are just getting started. The policy platform has become a twisted parody of itself: abolish private healthcare, enact 90 percent marginal income tax rates, and entertain the idea of federalizing huge swaths of our election system. Welcome to the new Democratic Party.

Each contender is so desperate to out-left the others, the party has completely abandoned middle America and taken a swan dive into an unabashed socialist agenda.

Democrats have a long tradition of wanting to reduce the rights of the individual and increase federal control over nearly every aspect of our lives. However, even the most die-hard progressive would admit the direction of the party has taken a sharp left turn.

Trump jabs at Democrats, says they might change party name to 'Socialist Party'

He leveled the attack while answering questions alongside Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro ahead of a bilateral meeting at the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

Trump said that he was not "impressed" by the Democratic primary debates this week, and accused Democrats of moving toward socialism.

"That’s become like the Socialist Party," he said, quipping: "There’s a rumor the Democrats are going to change the name of the party from the 'Democrat Party' to the 'Socialist Party.'"

The president did not elaborate on or substantiate his remark.
