  • Quebec issues death kits to doctors as it ramps up euthanasia program

    QUEBEC, September 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Quebec’s professional body regulating doctors, the College des Medecins, has published a how-to manual for doctors wanting to euthanize their patients, along with contents of a death kit to be issued them by pharmacists. These follow closely on the provincial government’s release of draft regulations for doctors, which defenders of the disabled have quickly condemned as inadequate. “This is sensational,” Amy Hasbrouck of Not Dead Yet, a disabled persons’ rights group opposed to euthanasia, told LifeSiteNews, adding that the Quebec College des Medecins (QCM) has finally got down to grim details. “You can call...

    To take down the so-called Islamic State in Syria, the influential former head of the CIA wants to co-opt jihadists from Americas arch foe. Members of al Qaedas branch in Syria have a surprising advocate in the corridors of American power: retired Army general and former CIA Director David Petraeus. The former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan has been quietly urging U.S. officials to consider using so-called moderate members of al Qaedas Nusra Front to fight ISIS in Syria, four sources familiar with the conversations, including one person who spoke to Petraeus directly, told The Daily Beast....

    The latest brilliant plan to curtail Isis in the Middle East? Give more weapons to current members of al-Qaida. The Daily Beast reported that former CIA director David Petraeus, still somehow entrenched in the DC Beltway power circles despite leaking highly classified secrets, is now advocating arming members of the al-Nusra Front in Syria, an offshoot of al-Qaida and a designated terrorist organization. Could there be a more dangerous and crazy idea?

    TORONTO Outside the quarantine zone Tuesday, life carried on as usual. Cars backed up. Fire trucks idled. Men (and women) went about their business. But inside the cordon, in the heart of Torontos financial district, things were oddly, eerily calm. A lone police officer stood on Bay Street, looking bored and chewing gum, while outside the tape, office workers looked up, craned their necks and gaped. Toronto Police blocked off a congested clump of streets in the commercial core for more than 24 hours Monday and Tuesday. The culprit: a wonky, but as it turned out perfectly safe, spire...

    For all the talk about a southern border wall (ahem, Mr. Trump), Scott Walker has an additional concern: Canada. Given his support for building a U.S.-Mexico border wall to protect against terrorist threats, the Wisconsin governor was asked on NBCs Meet the Press by host Chuck Todd if he wanted to build a northern border wall. Walker, a Republican candidate for president, said a U.S.-Canadian border is a legitimate issue for us to look at. Some people have asked us about that in New Hampshire, Walker said. They raised some very legitimate concerns, including some law enforcement folks that brought...

    As Gov. Scott Walker faced ridicule Monday for calling the building of a wall on the Canadian border a legitimate issue, his presidential campaign said he isnt pushing for the idea. Despite the attempts of some to put words in his mouth, Gov. Walker wasnt advocating for a wall along our northern border, Walker spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement. The campaign responded after Walkers comment was widely mocked, from a Democratic senator calling it one of the craziest ideas of the campaign so far to fellow GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, saying building a Canadian wall...

    QUEBEC, August 31, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Quebec’s Ministry of Education is rolling out a new pilot program for mandatory sex education this year that teaches 5-year-old children about male and female genitalia, how conception happens, and “different types of families.” The Ministry is refusing to allow parents to opt children out. “For the moment, no exemptions are planned,” Ministry of Education spokesperson Pascal Ouellet told The Canadian Press. An information pamphlet created by the Ministry for parents details what the Ministry considers “appropriate” material for children based on “age and level of development.” But what the government thinks is appropriate...

Several blocks around the luxury hotel and condo are cordoned off in what is a key part of the financial district. It has caused traffic chaos and police are stationed each corner of each cordoned off block.

    Canadian Oil Sands Ltd., the largest owner of the giant Syncrude oil-sands project, said on Sunday that it has halted production after a fire damaged equipment at its synthetic crude oil processing facility in northern Alberta. The company said the fire, which occurred early Saturday and was extinguished without any injuries, affected pipes connected to a water treatment unit at Syncrudes heavy oil upgrader on the site of its Mildred Lake oil-sands surface mine. The cause of the blaze is under investigation, it said. While the upgraders core machinery wasnt damaged and the strip mine continues to operate, Canadian Oil...

A soldier standing guard at the War Memorial was shot and killed. A short time later, the terrorist was taken down and himself killed at the Centre Block of Parliament, by the highly adept Sergeant-at-Arms. Two days earlier, two Canadian soldiers in Quebec had been run down by a terrorist in a car. The terrorist was shot to death after a car-chase, while one of the soldiers, who had been critically injured, died shortly afterwards. Violent Jihad...

    It was particularly revealing when David Axelrod explained that, of all his accomplishments in Barack Obamas White House, he was proudest of the fact that there hasnt been a major scandal. The qualifier major lays the burden on shoulders of the press to define what constitutes a serious scandal, and political media had thus far reliably covered the administrations ethical lapses as merely the peculiar obsessions of addlebrained conservatives. Surely, much of the political establishment in Washington nodded along with Axelrod as he patted himself on the back. A mere seven months later, though, and it is clear now that...

    The Republican Party of the 1920's swept into power during a financial crisis. Errors in the Feds monetary policy in 1919 in kept rates too low to benefit the sale of Victory bonds. The Fed then tightened excessively due to inflation, creating a financial shock and depression from 1920 to 1921. At that time, the Republican Party viewed increasing tariffs as good policy. Thus, during the sixty seventh Congress, the Emergency Tariff Act of 1921 was passed as a temporary measure until a more comprehensive measure could be drafted. Ultimately, Fordney-McCumber passed in 1922, imposing an ad valorem rate of...

    The scenic and narrow lane that leads to Robert Hodges sugar camp is surrounded by a cats cradle of plastic piping that draws sap from 12,000 trees. At the end of the lane, a ramshackle hut contains reverse osmosis pumps to concentrate the harvest. A stainless steel evaporator, about the size of a truck, finishes the conversion into maple syrup. Just one thing is missing: the maple syrup. For weeks, security guards, hired by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, kept watch over Mr. Hodges farm. Then one day, the federation seized 20,400 pounds of maple syrup, his entire...

    TORONTO - The Ontario government has been working on plans for high occupancy toll lanes on three Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area highways since 2013, but has kept most of the details secret. When the NDP filed a Freedom of Information request in early 2014 for detailed information on the work, which includes traffic models, most of the documents were to be blacked out or not released at all, according to a report obtained by the Toronto Sun. Ministry of Transportation staff prepared the note to give senior bureaucrats and the ministers office a heads-up about the NDPs contentious request....

    The most disturbing aspect of the scandal around Hillary Clintons use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is not the former first ladys penchant for secrecy. Whats truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own. Whether that eventually proves true, the sentiment itself reveals a...

    HOV is good; HOT is even better. As we saw during the Pan-Am Games, High Occupancy Vehicle lanes were great for cars with three or more people and other designated vehicles. The trouble was that they went largely unused. High Occupancy Toll lanes solve that problem by opening up the designated space to cars that dont have the numbers but whose drivers are willing to pay for the convenience. Premier Kathleen Wynne has hinted that shes willing to implement HOT lanes, but has not been specific about where and when. If the U.S. experience is anything to go by, however,...

Every thermal oil sands player is bleeding cash on every barrel produced with U.S. crude around $41 and the Canadian heavy...

    The last batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department included one from Clinton asking to borrow a book called Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better, by David Shipley and Will Schwalbe. Clinton has not said why she requested the book, but it includes some advice that is particularly interesting in light of the controversy over her unconventional email arrangement at the State Department and her decision to delete tens of thousands of emails she deemed to be purely personal. The copy that ABC downloaded for $9.99 had some interesting revelations. Take,...

    An ordained United Church of Canada minister who believes in neither God nor Bible said Wednesday she is prepared to fight an unprecedented attempt to boot her from the pulpit for her beliefs. In an interview at her West Hill church, Rev. Gretta Vosper said congregants support her view that how you live is more important than what you believe in. I dont believe in...the god called God, Vosper said. Using the word gets in the way of sharing what I want to share.

    Toronto woman Chelsea Clark recently got a creepy surprise from a stranger on Facebook after watching Netflix with her boyfriend, reports Good Housekeeping. The message contained pictures from her boyfriends laptop webcam of the pair in bed watching the streaming service together. There was only a short message from the hacker, using the name, Mahmoud Abdo. The pair had no idea at the time they were being watched: We obviously had no idea it was taking place in the moment, but retroactively it was like a really, really deeply creepy feeling, the 27-year-old told Newstalk1010. It was very unnerving. I...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | August 13th, 2015 | By Charles Lipson
    The political class is seriously underestimating the impact of Hillary Clintons email controversy. They see it mainly as a problem of public opinion and electoral politics, where it has been increasingly costly but not yet fatal. The political damagethe drip, drip, drip of revelationshas been bad, but there is worse to come. Hillary Clintons big problem now is legal, and it could well be insurmountable politically. Heres why. Once a political issue finally moves into the legal system, as the Clinton email server has, it moves forward with an independent logic. That logic will slowly ensnare Secretary Clinton. You can...

    Huma Abedin, Hillary Clintons most trusted confidante, is increasingly becoming a central figure in the email scandal thats haunting her boss on the campaign trail, as Republicans and federal judges seek information about Clintons communications while she was running the State Department. The 2016 Democratic front-runner on Monday told a federal judge that Abedin long considered her bosss keeper and even dubbed her shadow had her own email account on Clintons now infamous home-brewed server, which was used at times for government business, Clinton acknowledged. Thats an unusual arrangement, even for top brass at the State Department. Abedin...

    The New Brunswick Court of Appeal has barred a neo-Nazi group from inheriting the estate of a white supremacist Canadian man. Thursday, the court confirmed the decision to prevent the National Alliance, a violent West Virginia-based neo-Nazi group, from receiving a collection of coins and artifacts worth about $250,000. Harry Robert McCorkill, a retired professor from Saint John, N.B., left his valuable possessions to the hate group in his will before he died in 2004. They included Greek and Roman coins that have been displayed at museums, Nazi memorabilia and a human skull. McCorkills sister contested the will in 2013...

    The Canadian company that has spent the past seven years on a quest to build the Keystone XL pipeline through Americas heartland says it has spent $2.4 billion even before the first shovel has broken ground. If TransCanada fails in its attempt to build the pipeline, it could use a Clinton-era trade agreement to try to recoup some of that cost. The North American Free Trade Agreement signed by the United States, Canada and Mexico in 1994 lets corporations sue the members to seek payback for violations of international law. Known as a Chapter 11 claim, the suit would be...
