    Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party in the Canadian parliament, has called on Justin Trudeau to accept any ethnic minority person from the United States who comes to Canada claiming asylum because President Trump has made the country unsafe. “It’s clear that if you’re Muslim, if you’re black, if you’re Latina, if you’re Indigenous, the United States is not a safe country,” alleged May, the Member of Parliament for Saanich—Gulf Islands in British Columbia. “Our safe country agreement with the United States… simply can’t stand anymore,” she insisted.

    Enlarge ImageUnmasked. Aircraft LIDAR sweeps found this previously hidden impact crater in central Alberta, Canada. Credit: Herd et al., Geology Researchers have uncovered a pond-sized crater in the woods of central Alberta, Canada, carved out by a meteor that slammed into Earth about 1100 years ago. The technique they used to pinpoint the pit--a laser take on radar--figures to help scientists find evidence of hundreds of similar impacts that have remained hidden until now. Every 10 years or so, a sizable chunk of asteroid or comet crashes to Earth, leaving a crater about 40 meters wide. The remnants of...

    WHITE ROCK, British Columbia, June 2, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — An adjudicator has ruled that a Canadian Catholic church must now face a human rights hearing for refusing to allow an LGBT “Pride” group to hold a fundraising event at its parish hall last year, according to a May 28 Blacklock’s Reporter report. In March of 2019, the Star of the Sea Catholic Church in White Rock British Columbia refused an application from the White Rock Pride Society to host a “Love Is Love” ”Pride Week” fundraiser at the church’s parish hall, which is located next to the church.

  • U.S. Warns That China's Expulsion of Navy Near Disputed Islands Is a 'Serious Threat' to Sea Travel

    he Chinese military has said it chased off a U.S. warship near a disputed set of islands in the South China Sea, but the Navy contended the vessel was acting within international law. Senior Colonel Li Huamin, the spokesman for the Chinese People's Liberation Army's Southern Theater Command, said in a statement Thursday by official military outlets that the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin "illegally intruded" into territorial waters near the Paracel Islands, known to China as the Xisha Islands, earlier that day. As a result, Li said Chinese sea and air units were dispatched to "warn off" and...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is prepared to offer extended visa rights and a pathway to citizenship for almost 3 million Hong Kong residents in response to China’s push to impose national security legislation in the former British colony. China’s parliament has approved a decision to go forward with national security legislation for Hong Kong that democracy activists, diplomats and some in the business world fear will jeopardise its semi-autonomous status and its role as a global financial hub. Britain, the United States, Australia, Canada and the EU have all sharply criticised the move. Foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Thursday...

    -- Transport Canada has banned all cruise ships over 100 persons (passengers and crew) from operating within its waters until October 31, effectively ending the 2020 cruise season on both coasts. The move was announced by Minister of Transport Marc Garneau and follows Canada's earlier decision to ban cruise ships from operating in Canadian waters until July 1. “We understand the federal government’s motivations,” said Barry Penner, legal advisor to Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Northwest & Canada. “In fact, the cruise industry was one of the first to voluntarily suspend operations when the World Health Organization declared a pandemic...

    The relationship between Communist China and the free world, particularly the United States, is disintegrating so quickly that it’s hard to keep up. Yesterday, there was a big development in the ongoing dispute over Chinese technology giant Huawei. Back in 2018, the CFO of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada at the request of the U.S. government. The U.S. is seeking to extradite her so she can face charges here for inducing a group of banks to violate sanctions the U.S. placed on Iran. Wednesday a court in Canada ruled that Wanzhou’s extradition met the standard of “double...

    Beijing has removed references to “peaceful reunification” with Taiwan from its annual work report, signalling the country will take a stronger stance against the island territory. The past six work reports since President Xi Jinping took power in 2013 have signalled that any attempt to reunify Taiwan and China would be “peaceful”.

    From the beginning of the Coronavirus mass panic, one the main talking points for western governments was that “No one is immune. The disease can kill anyone at any time.” Various versions of this propaganda set piece were used and recycled across all media platforms, whereby government’s intention was actually to scare the public into accepting ‘lockdown’ or the shutdown of society and the economic, supposedly in order to “save lives.” However, after a number of weeks that fear narrative is rapidly collapsing as real data and evidence comes flowing in – which shows that the overwhelming majority of public...

    A medical doctor is expressing concern about Canadians receiving an experimental COVID-19 vaccine developed with the help of the Chinese military. Canada’s National Research Council (NRC) announced a collaboration initiative with the Chinese company CanSino Biologics Inc. on the clinical development of the company’s new AD5-nCoV vaccine, Ad5-nCoV. CanSino developed the vaccine in partnership with China’s military. Health Canada has approved the first human clinical trials that will run at the Canadian Centre for Vaccinology at Dalhousie University. The company is already conducting human clinical trials for the vaccine in China. Dr. Kulvinder Gill, a medical doctor based in the...

    There’s nothing surprising about presumptive U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden saying if he defeats Republican President Donald Trump in November, he’ll kill the Keystone XL pipeline. This latest fight over the $8-billion, 1,930-km pipeline intended to move bitumen from Alberta’s oilsands to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast, is all about American presidential politics in which Canada is a bystander. Trump revived the Keystone XL pipeline project in 2017. Intended to carry 830,000 barrels of crude oil daily, it was killed by Democratic president Barack Obama in 2015, after he dithered about it for seven years. At that time,...

    The Chinese government is in a massive resource grab in Africa, which has huge ramifications for natural resource prices, not the least of which will be the cost of imported oil to the U.S., and ultimately the stock market and economy. Beijing's latest foray is trying to buy 6 billion barrels of oil that is already spoken for via leases to Exxon, Chevron , Royal Dutch Shell, and Total SA. The Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. presently leases 16 oil blocks on what remains of the oil industry's dominant Seven Sisters. It's a monster development, and a dramatic signal of how...

    House Republicans want the American people to know that right now -- around 60 miles off the coast of Key West, Fla. -- China is drilling for oil, thanks to a lease issued by Cuba. But 1,200 miles north of Key West, Democrats in Washington are blocking the United States from conducting its own environmentally-safe oil and gas exploration in similar U.S. coastal areas, said a news release from House Republican leader John Boehner's office. "By prohibiting the United States from taking part in the same type of energy exploration that the Chinese are conducting just miles off our shores,...

    James Burkhard, IHS CERA's global oil director, is a self-described "peakist." But it's not what you might think. Whereas most adherents to peak oil theory believe petroleum production has plateaued and will fall back down, driving up oil prices, Burkhard sees the situation somewhat in reverse, with global oil demand peaking and falling off as developed countries become more efficient with how they use oil and require relatively less of it. Not even the seemingly insatiable appetites of countries such as China and India can reverse the trend, he said in an interview Thursday. "The long-term rate of oil demand...

    The first Canadian clinical trials for a potential COVID-19 vaccine will be led by researchers at Dalhousie University, with testing set to begin as early as the next few weeks. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Saturday that the Canadian Center for Vaccinology — a centre based at Dalhousie, the IWK Health Centre and Nova Scotia Health Authority — will lead the trials after receiving approval by Health Canada. They are still awaiting ethics board approval, which they hope to receive within a few weeks. Dr. Scott Halperin, the centre’s director, says he and his team will continue work started by...
