With Bill S-233 being debated in the Senate, perhaps it’s time to have a serious look at a national framework for a guaranteed livable basic income? Conservative Senator, Hugh Segal has been a proponent of such a mechanism for decades yet it is usually panned as ‘too expensive’, an infringement on provincial jurisdiction, or a disincentive for participation in the labour force by those right of centre.
When Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government brought in the ban on “assault style weapons” in May of 2020 through an order in council and more recently announced the “handgun ban” this year, he effectively criminalized the most law-abiding members of Canadian society. Punishing legal gun owners in Canada while ignoring the real causes of gun crime seems absurd, but that is exactly what these new laws do.
There was much controversy and disagreements between the Federal Progressive Conservative Party under Peter Mackay and the Reform Party under Stephen Harper, however they did realize that they would never be able to win a general election without uniting.
After many machinations and negotiations, the new Conservative Party of Canada was formed but not until Progressive Conservative leader, Peter MacKay secured a weighted ballot system for voting within the party.
Looking for an expert opinion on the validity of these machines, I spoke with a CTO of a tech company and graduate with an MSc in Software Engineering from the University of Oxford. He told me “I think one primary security challenges of any digital voting system relates to who has access to administrative privileges and control of log files. Privileges can be easily granted to administrative users to modify data and remove changes in the log files. I believe Dominion voting machines use Microsoft SQL Server, which in itself is secure, but can of course be freely modified by administrators without detection.
On the verge of an election in Ontario, a photo of Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath’s son has begun to resurface. Sporting what he claims to be a “fake gun” in an interview, Julian Leonetti, Andrew Horwath’s son posted an image of himself in Gucci pants holding the alleged fake gun for the picture.
Julian also produces music for his 61 monthly listeners on Spotify and his 168 subscribers on YouTube. These include songs like “No DUI” and “Isotope” – two songs which we will discuss later.
