A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist

Liberal promises to support veterans fallen by the wayside while agenda dominated by settling with terrorists The Prime Minister stood firm in his defense of terrorists declaring that a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian, while promising no convicted terrorist would ever lose their Canadian citizenship. Constitutional challenges aside, his bold and passionate defense of terrorists was at the top of his ambitious legislative agenda. Bill C-6 undid many changes introduced by the former government, including dismantling the powers enabling the government to revoke the Canadian citizenship of duel citizen convicted terrorists. While Bill C-6 achieved rapid passage...

Hard Choices, Necessary Options: Justin Trudeau’s Noble Fight for Reproductive Rights

Sixty percent of Canadians want some form of regulation or limits on abortion. Justin Trudeau believes that any limit on abortion is a limit on individual freedoms. –Kimberly Slauvre Although PM Stephen Harper prevented the abortion debate from being reopened, there is still a sense of general unease and uncertainty about the future of reproductive rights in Canada, particularly concerning a woman’s rationale for not carrying an unwanted pregnancy to full term. Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkin’s controversial tweet last week prompted conservative pundits and politicians to again kick the hornets’ nest in an effort to free the majority bent. The question...

The Yazoo-Ottawa Connection [Revisited]

Wynne’s Kin: eHealth’s New Puppet

Ontario Premier’s brother-in-law appointed CEO of eHealth. Hooray for Ontario’s nonpartisan agencies! ONTARIO—Premier Wynne has been jogging away from questions about her brother-in-law’s appointment as CEO of eHealth. The chief question being posed by the AP is, “Is this another example of OLP cronyism, and how do I jump on that bandwagon?” The provincial government established eHealth Ontario in 2008 as an “independent agency of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.” Its dubious independence has now come under additional scrutiny, as some are calling Rounthwaite’s appointment, “a Game of Thrones kind of incestuous-maneuver.” Dr. Jason Mercury—an Ontario physician who closely followed the controversy regarding eHealth’s waste of $1Bn while failing to get a digital health record running—suggests Wynne’s kin would be ideal for running such a mired institution. With an obedient proxy in a somewhat innocuous “independent” agency, Wynne’s emulated the key strategy employed by her favorite TV icon, Nucky Thompson (i.e. develop and extend your tribe into the community, so that if the community balks at your command, you suffocate them with your different appendages). How I’d love to sit-in on one of their family get-togethers and listen in awe as they can talk about how best to squander Ontario-taxpayer’s money… Rounthwaite’s first order of business will likely be to determine if there is any archived correspondence or medical records the OLP needs deleted. The second order will...

Paper Cuts: Legacy Legislation and the End of the Canadian Native [Tragedy]

LPC Considering Revamping and Pushing-through Controversial “White Paper” The Liberal Party of Canada intends to end the disturbing trend of missing and murdered Aboriginal women by appealing to the so-called genius of Pierre Trudeau. Trudeau sought to abolish the Indian Act in 1969 with the White Paper, thereby dissolving the Department of Indian Affairs, eradicating reserves, and eliminating the “Indian” status in favour of an “egalitarian” position agreed upon by non-natives in Ottawa. The current Liberals believe that the best way to assist the Native Women’s Association of Canada in their mandate to research, educate, and reform (policy), as...
