    Ford’s use of the notwithstanding clause: Sending a loud and clear message, to special interest groups, liberal lawyers, activist liberal judges, that his government’s legislation will not be high-jacked by elitist, undemocratic, unelected judges Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s decision to invoke section 33 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, (Charter) the “notwithstanding clause”, is a declaration of war on out of control, unelected, unaccountable, rogue liberal activist judges who have misused, misapplied and distorted the Charter to make law on the fly, for their own ideological+ partisan personal purposes. This is Ford’s first shot across the bow of...
  • Toronto's Homicide Rate is now higher than New York's

    With just days to go before the halfway point of 2018, Toronto Police have confirmed at least 48 homicides within the city since January 1. That's more than double the 23 we'd seen last year at this point. Five people were killed last weekend alone — four of them by guns — prompting both Police Chief Mark Saunders and Mayor John Tory to express public concern over a recent spike in shooting deaths. "The incidents of gun violence we have seen in our city in the past few days are shocking and can in no way be accepted or...

    A woman has filed a human rights complaint against a Toronto shelter for female recovering addicts, claiming staff forced her to share a small double room with a pre-operative male-to-female transgender person. The formal complaint against the Jean Tweed Centre, which runs Palmerston House, followed Kristi Hanna’s efforts to inquire about her own legal rights in this unusual situation, only to be told by Ontario’s Human Rights Legal Support Centre that, by describing her new roommate as a “man,” Hanna was the one engaged in illegal discrimination. Hanna, 37, is a former paramedic who has lately worked in the service...

    This means a major terrorist force was in the final stages of preparation for a catastrophic attack in Toronto. They were thwarted by two flukes, not by our security services. The article “Did we just dodge 9/11 2.0?” responded to revelations appearing in a July 27, 2018 CBC News report. Below is the sentence from that report describing the haul taken from the Danforth shooter’s brother’s home: “Durham Region Police later obtained a search warrant and found 33 firearms, ammunition and more than 40 kilograms of the potentially lethal drug carfentanil.”

    It is about time that our political leaders stop being so politically correct. And instead demand independent investigations and/or initiate independent investigations so we get real answers to this troubling terrorist event and to these questions. There is clear evidence that Muslim Faisal Hussain, ( aged 29) who shot fifteen people on the Danforth, killing two innocent girls, Juliana Kozis (age 10) and Reese Fallon (age 18), and injured thirteen other innocent people, was neither seriously mentally ill, nor that he had acted alone.

    After the July 22, 2018 Danforth attack the media and police utterly betrayed themselves by conspiring to suppress the Islamic terrorist link. On July 22, 2018 Faisal Hussein, a Canadian-born 29-year-old male of Pakistani heritage and Muslim faith, opened fire with a handgun on citizens along Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, killing two and wounding 13. After an exchange of gunfire with police Faisal Hussein turned his gun on himself. Faisal was known to police. He had posted favourable comments on jihadi websites and had recently visited Afghanistan.

    Is Genesis psychology or history? A response to Jordan Peterson by Lita Cosner and Paul Price Published: 26 July 2018 (GMT+10) We recently listened to a lecture series on the psychological significance of the biblical stories by Dr. Jordan Peterson, professor of psychology at Toronto University. It has taken a long time to distill the hours of lectures down to a form that can be examined in something as short as this article. It was a daunting task! However, the first lecture alone has over 2.5 million views on YouTube, indicating that Peterson’s lectures have a real audience, so it...

    Toronto City Council responded to Sunday’s shooting by voting 41-4 in support of a city-wide ban on handguns and ammunition sales. On July 22, 2018, Faisal Hussain opened fire in Toronto’s Greektown, killing two and wounding 13. CBS News reported that Toronto Mayor John Tory reacted to the shooting by saying, “Guns are too readily available to too many people.” The National Post quoted Tory saying, “Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all? I know answering questions like this won’t fully eliminate tragedies like this, but even if we can prevent one of these...

    The quiet sibling from a family often visited by tragedy. A shy young man with few close friends. A mass shooter who does not appear to have been on the radar of either federal national security agencies or provincial law enforcement. Faisal Hussain, the 29-year-old gunman in Sunday's fatal rampage on the Danforth, had a complicated past replete with family misfortune — including his older brother's drug overdose, which put him in a vegetative state — and mental health challenges including psychosis, his family said. But if there were warning signs, they weren't foretold in a criminal rap sheet. According...

    <p>TORONTO -- Canadian investigators were digging Tuesday into the life of the 29-year-old man who opened fire on restaurants and cafes in a popular Toronto neighborhood, seeking to explain what prompted the rampage that killed a 10-year-old girl and a young woman and wounded 13 others. Investigators in Canada have indications that Faisal Hussain visited Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) websites and may have expressed support for the terrorist group, a law enforcement source told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton.</p>

    TORONTO (AP) -- A man whose family said he suffered from psychosis and depression fired a handgun into restaurants and cafes in a lively Toronto neighborhood, killing a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman and wounding 13 others in an attack that has shaken the confidence of many in the normally safe city. Authorities on Monday evening identified the suspect as Faisal Hussain, 29, of Toronto, who died in an exchange of gunfire with police. It was not immediately clear whether he killed himself or was killed by police. The mass shooting in Toronto's Greektown district Sunday night came just...

    Shame on Toronto Mayor John Tory for shutting the lid on what happened on the Danforth before the grieving families could even bury their dead. In Canada it is all but impossible to legally acquire a handgun. Is it even remotely possible that John Tory, the mayor of Canada’s largest city, doesn’t know that? One day after the Danforth tragedy that left two innocents dead and 13 others wounded, Tory called for the total disarmament of Toronto— saying nobody needs a gun — in the wake of a gunman’s rampage through its Danforth district.

    Granted, Toronto’s 58 homicides YTD can’t hold a candle to Detroit’s, but still, that’s a distressingly high count for a nation said to have common-sense gun control™ and very few murders.Following Saturday’s fatal shooting spree by Faisal Hussain in the city’s Greektown area, Toronto’s mayor thinks the common sense solution lies in a total disarmament of the city: “Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?” he said. I don’t know: maybe for self-defense? Due to the rapidly rising wave of violent crime in the city on the lake? And remember kids, just like in...
