  • Here's why rural Ontario is fading and cities aren't (Out of touch urban elitist in Canada alert)

    Here's why rural Ontario is fading and cities aren't The urban-rural divide is swiftly becoming one of the most pressing issues of economic policy in this century. From Europe to England to the United States and yes, here in Canada, the sweeping changes to physical landscapes have translated to sweeping changes in political landscapes. As David Reevely pointed out last week, Ontario’s urban centres have seen economic growth and recovery that the stretches of rural land separating those centres simply haven’t. There are multiple reasons for this, one being that Ontario’s municipalities have been practising a policy of intensification for...

    The CBC owes an apology to Canadians for the video but that is about as likely as Obama expressing condolences over the death of an on-duty police officer. It ain’t going to happen It is the kind of video you expect someone to make and upload to YouTube. It is something completely different when a major broadcaster airs it. And it is more disgusting when the video is made and aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that is subsidized by the taxpayers to the tune of over $1 billion a year. The video on the November 29th episode of This...

    Once it became clear Donald Trump would become the next president of the United States, enquiries about studying at the University of Alberta began to come in. It wasn’t a deluge of interest, says Britta Baron, associate vice-president international, but it was enough that people noticed. And it wasn’t just prospective students putting the feelers out; Deans were also getting queries from academics and professors looking for job opportunities north of the 49th Parallel. The climate of uncertainty swirling through the United States may not be enough to force American students to reconsider their Ivy-league aspirations, but it will, Baron...
  • Toronto: Islamic book sold that explains wisdom of stoning adulterers to death

    Here we go again: more ways to violate human rights, and the rights of women, proclaimed brazenly in a society that professes to uphold human rights. But Canada recently passed an anti-Islamophobia motion in parliament — whatever that means. "Book sold in Toronto explains the wisdom of stoning adulterers to death”, by Jonathan Halevi, CIJ News, November 28, 2016: The book “How to Protect Yourself from the Fitnah of the Women” by Shaykh Majdi Ibn Atiyah Mahmood, deals with the challenges men are facing when interacting with women, including sexual provocation, sins, immorality, indecency, slackness and vileness.

    Early on Tuesday afternoon, the Prime Minister’s Office announced in a news release that U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden will visit Ottawa during Justin Trudeau’s meeting with the premiers—and the Canadians will throw a dinner in the veep’s honour. This was a quaint reminder of how foreign dignitary visits traditionally get announced and arranged. It came a few hours after a reminder of how deals and diplomacy will get done in Trumpworld—with all the pomp and circumstance of a couple of phone calls and back-slaps.

    Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday for his praise of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Trudeau caught flak on social media after expressing "deep sorrow" for Castro, whom he called a "remarkable leader." Cruz and Rubio, who are of Cuban descent, released their own statements ripping the deceased leader. “Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” Rubio tweeted, linking to Trudeau's statement on Castro's death. “Disgraceful," Cruz tweeted of Trudeau's remarks.

He’s the Disney prince with the trippy dance moves, the groovy Haida tattoo and the gender-balanced cabinet. He’s the last best hope for globalization, the star attraction at the Pride Parades, the hero of the Paris Climate Summit, the guy everyone wants a selfie with. Trudeau made himself synonymous with Canada. He made Canada cool again. It was fun while it lasted. By the early hours of Saturday morning, Havana time, Trudeau...

    Last week, a series of incidents involving antisemitic graffiti made headlines in Canada, with many pundits attempting to tie them to the U.S. election of Donald Trump and the apparent rise of right-wing extremist elements in the United States. Armchair activists have been weighing in, blaming Trump as well as his appointment of his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, claiming that the President-elect is fostering an attitude of intolerance and antisemitism and suggesting that he is triggering a dramatic surge in hate incidents against the Canadian Jewish community. It’s a very neat causal chain. The problem is, it’s just not true....
  • Canada To Purchase 18 Super Hornets While Future Fighter Competition Looms

    Common sense is running strong in Ottawa as the Canadian Ministry of Defense has decided to move forward with negotiations for 18 Boeing Super Hornets as an interim fighter solution. We reported on this plan last June while it was still in the works. Now Defense Minister Sajjan has made it policy, along with other steps that will be taken to revitalize Canada’s overstretched tactical air power capabilities. The purchase will bolster Canada’s aging Hornet fleet while the competition to replace Canada’s roughly 75 CF-18s gets underway. It is estimated that the competition, which Sajjan said will be “wide open,”...

    Canada’s Liberal government said it will repeal a section of the criminal code that effectively bans anal intercourse for 16- and 17-year-olds, which is now viewed as infringing on the rights of gays and other sexual minorities. The measure was announced on Tuesday morning by Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, who said that it was about time to scrap the “discriminatory” law. “This section of the Criminal Code is discriminatory and the LGBTQ2 community has rightfully called for its repeal,” Wilson-Raybould said, as quoted by CBC News. “Our society has evolved over the last few decades and our criminal justice...

Right now, the age of consent is 16 but is set at 18 for for anal intercourse, a discrepancy many have denounced as discriminatory. Justice Minister Wilson-Raybould announced the change today, saying the "outdated" law violated equality rights.

Investor interest comes at a time when the first crop of infrastructure funds raised in the U.S. in 2004 and 2005 are coming to the end of their 10-year life span. Managers are expected to bring more transactions to market to take advantage of growing interest by direct investors.

Canada has abundant resources of fresh water, oil, coal and timber, all of which will be increasingly important as climate change continues its death march across history. The longer we scorch the Earth, the more valuable Canada’s resources become. [...] Besides, we all know how Trump feels about oil resources. “It used to be ‘to the victor belong the spoils,’ ” he said when asked about Iraq at the NBC Commander in Chief Forum, adding “Now, there was no victor...

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. – A dozen Canadian women are heading to Florida on a mission unrelated to sun, surf and sand — they intend to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump. They’re bunking in a pair of houses that will serve as temporary campaign dorms for the travelling Canucks, as they knock on doors and make calls in what’s arguably the most important region of the most important swing state in the U.S. election. ”We didn’t come here to have a holiday — we’re here to work,” said Cheryl Conley-Strange. ”It’s a lot of work.” She knows from experience.

    With the American Presidential race results narrowing, two Canadian RE/MAX realtors have launched an initiative for Americans to move to Canada if #Trump wins. Encouraging Americans to get out while the getting is good, RE/MAX realtors Looey Tremblay and Michael Saunders from Kitchener, Ontario have spelled out how to avoid The Trumpocalypse by moving to #Canada. Citing a 2016 report by U.S. News & World Report and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School that Canada is the second best country in the world in which to live, Tremblay said Canada ranks right up there in matters relating to citizenship, entrepreneurship...

    DERWENT, Alberta, October 26, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Alberta’s largest Christian home-schooling association has been effectively shut down by the province’s NDP government after it found what Education Minister David Eggen called a “fail[ure] to demonstrate accountability of funding received from the government of Alberta.” But the association is denying wrongdoing. “WISDOM/Trinity has been shut down by AB Education. They announced this with a press release filled with partial truths amounting to calumny,” the association stated in a press release on Tuesday.

    Southwestern Ontario is shocked by the revelation of allegations that a nurse was responsible for 8 deaths in care homes in Woodstock and London Ontario. As shocking as it is that Elizabeth Wettlaufer, 49, of Woodstock; has been charged with 8 counts of first degree murder in what is being defined as possibly the worst case of a seriel killer in Canadian history, we need to demand that an in-depth investigation be done into every care home in Canada, especially now that euthanasia and assisted suicide are now legal. We should mourn the deaths of James Silcox (84), Maurice (Moe)...

    A video of a racist altercation in Abbotsford is making the rounds online. The slur-ridden video appears to take place in a parking lot on South Fraser Way and Pauline Street. In it, a Caucasian man verbally assaults another person behind the camera, apparently over a parking space. In the 2:20 minute video, the man calls the person a “Hindu” and a “P*ki” who “should go back to India.” He also calls him a “camel-riding m***********” and other racial slurs not appropriate for publication. At one point, the man approaches the camera and asks, “When did you come to Canada?”...
