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.
Jim Karahalios says that he always knew this was going to be a “long term project” that there are “no quick fixes” in our current political malaise. He is pleased that New Blue’s grassroots strategy has paid off and they have achieved their goals of having a constituency association and viable candidate in every one of the 124 ridings, have grown awareness and are making headway in challenging the legacy party narrative.
I could hear the exhaustion and hope in his voice when he told me that “Things are looking good on the ground. Support keeps growing across the province and I think that we are competitive.”
So, when reading between the lines, we can see that the treaty will be legally binding and enforce compliance with health responses through a regular review process. This means if Canada signs the treaty we will be forced to provide details of our health systems and our people to an unelected outside regulatory body that will no longer be an outside regulatory body if this treaty is adopted as planned.
Perhaps this sounds a bit extreme – but this is exactly what Health Ministers from around the world are calling for. In fact, the Ministers writing in the BMJ wrote that “we need to share data, samples, technologies, and benefits.” They write that “a new instrument could potentially include a multilateral framework for sharing surveillance and monitoring data, genetic data and pathogens.” In essence, if the Ministers get their way, it sounds like the COVID nanny state the world has become accustomed to will be here to stay forever.
It shouldn’t be surprising to Canadians that the Liberal Party has continued to double down on their failed gun-control measures.
Especially when you consider that they brought representatives from what I would deem gun-control extremist groups to be present for the announcement.
The Coalition for Gun Control group for instance, has a whole page of myths and facts that attack law-abiding gun owners while offering up zero – I repeat zero links to any supporting evidence. You would think if you were making statements like “there are higher rates of gun death and injury in rural areas because of the higher rates of gun ownership” the least you would do in support of your argument is offer a link to an article or perhaps even better – an official government report.
Mr. Masterson began his speech to the committee by stating that “Canada’s chemistry industry is the third-largest manufacturing sector in the country and the second-largest rail shipper.” He noted that every day the industry ships 550 railcars – that’s over 4,000 cars a week—and they do that 52 weeks a year. The Canadian rail industry as a whole is a revenue behemoth for the government of Canada and in 2019 had a total operating revenue of over $15 billion dollars.
Unless you can walk or drive a personal vehicle, you cannot go anywhere within the country and you certainly can’t leave it. Some businesses won’t let you in. You cannot practise your profession and you could lose your professional designation. Your children cannot attend regular schooling, sports or social activities. Higher education will not accept you. Your government, the one you have paid taxes to your entire life, now says that you are unclean and unfit for society. The leader of the country publicly queries “How long will we tolerate these people”.
