OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


CLASSIC hemer-HOID GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


Is it not odd that hemer-HOID always turns to blaming Harper for LIE-beral actions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I guess we should not be asking hemer-HOID how it is that the "evil" Harper............................................ ..


persuaded LIE-beral Chretien to lead all those "Team Canada" trade missions to China????????????????????????????


And what sort of Svengali hold does Harper have on LIE-berals........................................


that Chretien and his LIE-beral BOOT LICKERS would feel COMPELLED to BOAST.........................................


of their fine working relationship with China.........................................


and to BOAST about about all the sales they made to China???????????????????????????????????????


And shall we now point to the Greatest LIE-beral accomplishment of the last 40 years?????????????????


Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


WE MUST THANK LIE-berals for their wonderful ideas about disseminating Fake News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We could start with civil service union Hogs and local Walkerton politicians BLAMING Mike Harris for not reigning in drunken morons



at the Walkerton Water Dept!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- we should point out that Walkerton "leaders" INSISTED they be allowed to take over their own water system..........................


back in the 1930`s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- Walkerton leaders THREW OUT the provincial monitors and hired UNLICENSED DRUNKS to run things................................


and that is the somehow the fault of Harris and Harper????????????????????????????



We could talk about what LIE-berals refer to as "our BOOMING economy".......................................... ...


that happens to be mired in RECORD DEBT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How is it we can be both booming and broke???????????????????????


Hogs "boom" and the rest of us are "broke"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !



We could talk about LIE-beral bigotry masquerading as social awareness...................................


meaning LIE-berals have become AWARE they can pick up votes by raving about white privilege!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Yes- LIE-berals consider it a VIRTUE to import hordes of illegals and tell them their lives will become PERFECT...............................


IF ONLY they vote LIE-beral and help destroy odious white privilege!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


By which LIE-beral mean Our idiot Boy should be anointed as prime minister for life....................................


and granted FULL POWERS to jail and silence anybody who disputes the wonderful benefits of his REIGN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As proof I offer the FACT that Our idiot Boy has made a modest start on his dictatorship by offering up SIX HUNDRED MILLION



DOLLARS to media whores "that HE TRUSTS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !



Of course LIE-berals DO NOT wish to talk about that KEY WHITE PRIVILEGE........................................


the one that involves SHUNNING LIE-beral HYPOCRISY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


WE could talk about LIE-beral respect for democracy......................................... ....


meaning LIE-berals ARE IN LOVE with all the democratic loopholes.........................................


they can use to SUBVERT our values and laws............................................


FOR LIE-beral benefit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We can talk about LIE-beral love of justice and fair play.....................................


except that would jump start arguments about Lavalin and the LIE-beral belief they ARE ABOVE THE LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We could mention that LIE-berals are CONVINCED their opponents are CLOSED MINDED......................................


except that opponents of LIE-berals want to discuss a WIDE RANGE of LIE-beral FAILINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


While Maroons like hemer-HOID ONLY want to talk about "white nattys"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And asshats like hemer-HOID think LIE-berals have a winning election strategy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Matt Gurney: Someone tell Trudeau he can't be a reconciliation champion and the overseer of genocide at the same time

The PM passing genocide off as some other wrong he can apologize for without needing to personally own any responsibility simply won't work.

Six days after acknowledging that his country was guilty of genocide, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a press conference outside of Montreal and announced that Canada was going to take a hard line on single-use plastic items such as straws, water bottles and cutlery. The leader of the nation he agrees is actively trying to destroy a segment of its population went on to add, “We need to cover all of Canada with this decision and that’s why the federal government is moving forward on a science-based approach to establishing which harmful single-use plastics we will be eliminating as of 2021.”

If you’re pressed for time, dear reader, you can probably just stop now. I’m going to keep going for a while to actually fill out the column, but if there is anything you should take away from the this, it’s that the prime minister pivoted from a crime against humanity to the crime of the drinking straw in your smoothie in about 140 hours. This is the problem the prime minister faces — arguably more than even the average Canadian PM would. This prime minister has spoken often of his desire for a better relationship with Indigenous communities and people. He’s spoken a lot about reconciliation. He’s had some major flops on that front, too, of course, from his flippant “Thank you for your donation” dismissal of a protest over poor environmental conditions on a First Nations reserve (for which he apologized) to the obvious damage inflicted by the prolonged and public battle between the Prime Minister’s Office and former attorney-general Jody Wilson-Raybould, an Indigenous woman. Still, if only as a matter of political branding, the PM has tried to sell himself as the federal leader most committed to reconciliation.

So what do you do when a report your government commissioned and spent almost $100 million on concludes that the government you’re running is genocidal?

I’m not sure there’s an easy answer to that question, but we can certainly recap what the prime minister actually did. First he avoided it entirely, speaking in more general terms about Canada needing to do more for the “safety, security, and dignity” of Indigenous women and girls. That’s obviously true and fair, but it didn’t help the PM much; every headline that day was some variation of “TRUDEAU WON’T SAY GENOCIDE.” The next day, having decided that just ignoring the word wasn’t going to work, he used it. “We accept (the report’s) findings including that what happened amounts to genocide,” he said. It was a carefully chosen admission — what “happened,” not what’s “happening” — but there it was. Trudeau had admitted it was genocide.

It didn’t last. By Monday of this week, the same day the prime minister committed Canada to the great crusade against those loopy things that hold your six-pack together, the prime minister was qualifying his statement, telling Radio-Canada in an interview that he would describe what had happened as a “cultural genocide.”

It’s easy to jump on the PM for trying to hold every possible position on this issue simultaneously. (Chantal Hébert, writing in the Toronto Star, noted dryly that, “Trudeau’s mixed messages will likely satisfy no one.” No kidding.) But rather than view the prime minister’s evolving response as a sign of confusion or conflict, I see something else entirely: the contortions are the natural product of the undeniable truth that, for this prime minister, there is no good position. He’s screwed.

He can avoid calling it a genocide at all, as seemed to be his first instinct. But a day of criticism was all he could take before he abandoned that position; it’s obvious he and his advisers concluded it simply wasn’t a politically defensible stand for a nominally reconciliation-focused prime minister. So he shifted to acknowledging that genocide was a valid term, but carefully put the term in the past tense — genocide had “happened.” But there’s no safe harbour for the prime minister there; the final report’s supplement specifically dealing with genocide’s definition and meaning notes, “In addition to the lethal conduct, the non-lethal tactics … fall within the scope of the crime of genocide. These policies … in different incarnations, are still ongoing.” (Emphasis added.) So cleanly carving genocide off as just some other historic wrong the prime minister can formally apologize for without needing to personally own any responsibility isn’t going to work, either. The report is clear that the genocide is ongoing. The crime is ongoing, the report argues, right now, and the buck stops with Trudeau.

The prime minister can’t accept that. Even if he wants to — and that’s far from clear, as he has always seemed way more comfortable apologizing for historic crimes than any errors he himself has made — he simply can’t. If the PM admits that there is a genocide and that he’s partially overseen it, how can he then go back to business as normal, slamming Conservatives for their support of Alberta oil and cracking down on water bottles? You can’t cop to a war crime over breakfast and then deliver an infrastructure announcement to a local chamber of commerce at lunch without looking absurd. Recasting it as cultural genocide isn’t going to work all that much better for the prime minister, but it’s probably is the best avenue open to him.

A different prime minister might have felt more comfortable than Trudeau simply rejecting the use of the term, as Conservative leader Andrew Scheer did when he agreed that horrible things had happened, but that they didn’t constitute a genocide. You can agree with Scheer’s position or not, but it’s coherent and defensible.

Trudeau’s? Not so much. You don’t need to grasp quantum computing to realize you simply can’t be the country’s leading champion of reconciliation and the self-confessed overseer of an ongoing genocide at the same time.

Harper DID make deals with China which I don't like. I am not an admirer of his for many reasons, this among them.
But... I remember those days. I remember the constant pressure from the Liberals and NDP as well as corporate Canada adn the media to make nice with China, pressure Harper ignored at first. So I give him some credit for having the right ideas. He often did. But also as he often did, he refused to stand behind his beliefs and caved in once the recession set in. He was the great pragmatist, after all.


The Liberals and NDP get ZERO credit, of course. They enthusiastically embraced China from the beginning. Chretien had the RCMP rough up and falsely arrest all kinds of people during the APEC summit because he'd promised the Chinese dictator he would see no protestors if only he would please, pretty please, pretty pretty please come over. "I put de pepper on my steak!" he said jovially, he and the Chinese dictator slapping palms about what you do to demonstrators. Those who followed him into the leadership took identical positions, and still hold them.

There has always been and will always be pressure to make nice with China.

I understand that Harper facing the same political pressure as anyone else is entirely unfair because only white people face discrimination and climate change is a hoax.

Here is an interesting article that suggests we are moving in costly directions that DO NOT serve the public interest!

With some comments of my own in brackets):

An AI's Carbon Footprint Is 5 Times Bigger Than a Car's

By David Grossman, Popular Mechanics

Published June 7, 2019

Subaru, Toyota join to develop Evs.

In any number of industries, from transportation to medicine to defense, advocates are calling on artificial intelligence to play increasingly large roles as the fields look to the future. But a new study shows there's a dirty side to AI: energy consumption.

The act of training a neural network, according to the study led by Emma Strubell of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, creates a carbon dioxide footprint of 284 tonnes-five times the lifetime emissions of an average car.

(Given this one lone fact - maybe we should ask if we want autonomous vehicles on our roads at all? For one thing they STEAL blue collar delivery jobs- in a society where jobs are getting harder to find!)

(Then add in this revelation about energy consumption and the question grows even bigger! Then throw in the fact that autonomous vehicles are ALL battery powered - and WE KNOW that Lithium battery production is a FILTHY business and then add in serious questions about HOW electricity is generated, with coal and natural gas being very often used for generation - and then ask HOW messy a job it is to dispose of old Lithium batteries- and at this point even an optimist must admit that battery power IS NOT nearly as green as its promoters are admitting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Makers of autonomous vehicles are road testing them in several south western Yankee cities- and the operators report that local people often throw rocks and debris at the machines!! Locals are JUSTIFIABLY PISSED that their streets should be turned into laboratories for mechanical LAB RATS!!)

(After all- the machine owners CANDIDLY ADMIT- THEY ARE TESTING the machines in real world conditions to see if they can hack it!! Local people are being turned into accessories AT RISK OF INJURY in a science experiment that WILL NOT profit them if it works -but MAY HARM THEM if it fails!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And yet LIE-berals find it hard to understand our opposition to their mouldy green propaganda, electricity price gouging, and the LIE-beral OBSESSION with electric TOY cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Neural networks are sometimes considered the "brute force" hammers of the AI world, effective but inefficient. Strubell's study examined four different AIs all involved in understanding written words: Transformer,ELMo, BERT, and GPT-2. GPT-2, for example, is trained to predict the next word in 40 gigabytes of Internet text. It was trained to process words from 8 million web pages.

Strubell's team measured each AI for one day and sampled the energy consumption throughout. That figure was then multiplied by the length of time it took to train the AIs, according to their original builders. From there, the carbon footprint was based on average carbon emissions used in American power production.

Scientists identified a process known as a Neural Architecture Search (NAS) as the main offender. Using trial and error, NAS automates the design of a neural network. Referred to as one of the "new kings of the deep learning castle," NAS is seen as a "quick and dirty way of getting great accuracy for your machine learning task without much work."

(In other words- science is trying to computer mimic -in a day or two- the development of a machine with human brain capability - with the human brain taking MILLIONS of years to evolve! No wonder the electricity bill is BIG!!!!!!!)

However, training the Transformer AI, which is focused on translating between languages like French and English, with NAS is vastly more time-consuming. It only takes 84 hours to train the Transformer without NAS; with the process, it can take over 270,000 hours.

NAS is fine-tuned for extremely specific tasks within the AI framework-translating German or French, for example-meaning that expends 3,000 times the amount of energy.

(One really has to ask if it would not be cheaper to hire competent human translators for such tasks??????????)

There are limits to Strubell's study, which will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Computer Linguistics in Florence, Italy in July. Giant companies like Google and Amazon present the option to researchers of paying for cloud-based platforms that can be used to remotely train AIs. Understanding how Google and Amazon use these cloud platforms would paint a fuller picture.

(There is a further concern beyond mere power usage- which is WHO - in the end- is paying for this stuff since Google and Amazon are tacking their research costs onto our products while learning how to manipulate us? How much of the cost is being sneaked out of OUR POCKETS by companies like Google and Amazon?? Do we want a couple of private companies to have near TOTAL CONTROL of all online activity?? AND have access to all manner of retail records of what you bought, where you traveled and how??????????????????????????)

(Allowing for LIE-beral climate hysteria- which they are using as an EXCUSE to price gouge us on electricity; then throw in their love of electric TOY cars that cannot be sold unless LIE-berals offer up HUGE subsidies in that selfish economy manipulating and careful vote buying way beloved of LIE-berals; then discuss the huge electrical bills and carbon foot print of A.I. And then consider that public roads and the people on them are being treated as UNPAID LAB RATS and it all looks like a VERY UNHEALTHY convergence of corporate and LIE-beral interests!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Still, the data poses enough of a concern.

“From an energy perspective, and from a carbon reduction perspective, we should be thinking about designing the services and making sure the algorithms are efficient as possible,” says Chris Priest at the University of Bristol, speaking to New Scientist.

Given the dire warning presented by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)-the world has only 12 years to limit the damage of global warming-large carbon footprints should be examined closely. Because simply planting more trees likely won't cut it.

Source: New Scientist

(And as we KNOW - the LIE-beral carbon crap and trade tax SCAM WILL NOT CUT IT either!! ALL CURRENT LIE-beral environmental “initiatives” have GROSS GRAVY GRAB stamped all over them!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(If LIE-berals were serious about climate change they would IMMEDIATELY call a halt to air travel- the most DIRTY WAY to move either people or cargo!! And whatever happened to the Chretien LIE-beral plan to push for having more cargo delivered between provinces and states by TRAIN? Since trains are more fuel efficient than trucks!! Too costly or inconvenient I guess????????????????)

(LIE-berals claim to fret about the environment - and then ENCOURAGE drive through service at banks and fast food joints- in a society where obesity and Diabetes are reaching epidemic proportions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And LIE-berals seem not to care about the carbon foot print of a company like Amazon- that promises next day service from ACROSS the continent - even as Amazon ERODES the amount of tax money paid by local biz that is being bypassed for online shopping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Do LIE-berals hold any solid values or have any real plans they can follow for more than one day at a time?????????????????????????????)

NP View: Trudeau and McKenna are the ones endangering unity, not the premiers

The federal government’s rejection of many of the Senate’s proposed amendments to Bill C-69, which would overhaul how Canada approves energy projects, is disappointing but not surprising. The Liberals did not introduce C-69 in a rush or in ignorance; the anger expressed by many in the energy industry and in the Western provinces was so intense precisely because they knew the Liberals meant what they were proposing. Expert after expert warned the Liberals that C-69, as first written, would derail major energy projects in Canada by blowing up established, understood procedures and precedents for project approvals. Those skeptical of the Liberals’ good will have no doubt wondered if the prime minister sees that as more a feature than a bug.

But the prime minister and his environment minister are not the only people with a say in the matter. The Senate took the bill to the proverbial woodshed and sent it back to the House with almost 200 amendments. It’s not a shock that the Liberals would be unhappy with that, and would reject many of them. The government has said it will accept, in whole or in part, almost 100 of the Senate’s amendments, but will reject the remainder, including the ones that resource-dependent provinces and industry groups had considered the most vital to fixing the worst of the bill.

This was foreseeable. What is surprising, and alarming, is how Justin Trudeau and his government are rejecting them — in the most inflammatory way possible.

Bill C-69, and the similar Bill C-48, the so-called “B.C. tanker ban,” which would prevent tankers from exporting Alberta’s oil from northern B.C. (but not other oil shipments) have understandably infuriated a significant portion of the Canadian public. Canadian energy has become a controversial issue in recent years, thanks largely to the ceaseless efforts of anti-oil activists, many of them foreign-based or foreign-funded, in vilifying it. There are also many forceful arguments in favour of its continued development in our national interest. Environmental sustainability and improving relations with Indigenous communities are something Canadians aspire to, yet Alberta’s energy exports are important to the province and also to the country. The debate is heated precisely because of how weighty the issues are, and because of the natural tensions between competing priorities. But properly balancing these interests is what living in a federation means. Dealing with such matters should not be beyond the ability of a government that truly puts country ahead of party.

If Trudeau and his government could at least claim that they were doing so (even if not everyone believed it), they’d at least be putting in the bare minimum effort to pretend that they view these issues as complicated but important public policy matters.

But they can’t quite bear to do the work of selling that pleasant fiction. Earlier this week, the prime minister — twice! — dismissed a letter from six premiers representing populations as regionally diverse as the Northwest Territories, Ontario and New Brunswick, that urged his government to accept the Senate’s C-69 amendments. He framed it all as some form of right-wing conspiracy. It’s true that five of the six signatories were conservative premiers (the Northwest Territory’s Bob McLeod has no partisan affiliation). But then, most provinces currently have conservative governments. It’s worth noting, as well, that the provincial premiers were not demanding anything that a majority of the Senate, including a good number of nominal independents appointed by this very prime minister, had not already recommended.

The prime minister, even before rejecting half of the amendments, could have easily done it without inciting yet more fury. Something like: “We don’t agree with everything the senators have recommended, nor with all that the premiers have asked for, but we appreciate their perspective. We will carefully consider the proposed amendments and pledge to work together to find a compromise we can all live with.” It’s not hard. It’s basic statesmanship and responsible leadership. Instead, Trudeau dismissed the letter as an assault on national unity and demanded federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer denounce it. It was an appalling display. Trudeau took an already divisive issue and exploited it — twice in quick succession — to take a baldly partisan swipe at a federal rival, while slandering a half-dozen of his provincial and territorial counterparts.


This was no slip of the tongue, nor was the prime minister the only offender. Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Thursday that the government would reject “90 per cent of the Conservative amendments.” But the amendments the government was rejecting were not “Conservative” amendments, as McKenna damn well knows; Conservatives are a clear minority in the Senate. Only the agreement of a large number of Trudeau-appointed “independent” senators permitted any amendments to be sent back to the government at all. If these were Conservative amendments, Trudeau wouldn’t have been presented with them in the first place.

With these comments, the prime minister and McKenna are telling on themselves. It is clear that whatever their rhetoric about reconciliation and environmental sustainability, they’re using these bills to wage political warfare against their opponents, not to mention economic war against millions of their own citizens. All parties play partisan games, of course. But, the C-69 amendments had bipartisan support in the Senate and, in Alberta, where polls show secessionist sentiment has grown to alarming levels during Trudeau’s term, the Liberals’ preferred version of C-69 is opposed across the spectrum. The United Conservatives, the NDP, the Alberta Party and, yes, even Alberta’s Liberals, support the Senate’s amended bill, and said so in a jointly signed letter to Ottawa.

But the prime minister and McKenna don’t have the time or the regard for those who disagree with them. It’s far easier to dismiss critics as mere partisan operators than do the hard work of finding a solution that can be accepted by all in this federation of ours. If the Liberals were truly worried about unbridled partisanship endangering national unity, they wouldn’t be doing it themselves.

Expert after expert warned the Liberals that C-69, as first written, would derail major energy projects in Canada by blowing up established, understood procedures and precedents for project approvals. Those skeptical of the Liberals’ good will have no doubt wondered if the prime minister sees that as more a feature than a bug.

But the prime minister and his environment minister are not the only people with a say in the matter. The Senate took the bill to the proverbial woodshed and sent it back to the House with almost 200 amendments. It’s not a shock that the Liberals would be unhappy with that, and would reject many of them. The government has said it will accept, in whole or in part, almost 100 of the Senate’s amendments, but will reject the remainder, including the ones that resource-dependent provinces and industry groups had considered the most vital to fixing the worst of the bill.

This was foreseeable. What is surprising, and alarming, is how Justin Trudeau and his government are rejecting them — in the most inflammatory way possible.

Bill C-69, and the similar Bill C-48, the so-called “B.C. tanker ban,” which would prevent tankers from exporting Alberta’s oil from northern B.C. (but not other oil shipments) have understandably infuriated a significant portion of the Canadian public. Canadian energy has become a controversial issue in recent years, thanks largely to the ceaseless efforts of anti-oil activists, many of them foreign-based or foreign-funded, in vilifying it. There are also many forceful arguments in favour of its continued development in our national interest. Environmental sustainability and improving relations with Indigenous communities are something Canadians aspire to, yet Alberta’s energy exports are important to the province and also to the country. The debate is heated precisely because of how weighty the issues are, and because of the natural tensions between competing priorities. But properly balancing these interests is what living in a federation means. Dealing with such matters should not be beyond the ability of a government that truly puts country ahead of party.

If Trudeau and his government could at least claim that they were doing so (even if not everyone believed it), they’d at least be putting in the bare minimum effort to pretend that they view these issues as complicated but important public policy matters.

But they can’t quite bear to do the work of selling that pleasant fiction. Earlier this week, the prime minister — twice! — dismissed a letter from six premiers representing populations as regionally diverse as the Northwest Territories, Ontario and New Brunswick, that urged his government to accept the Senate’s C-69 amendments. He framed it all as some form of right-wing conspiracy. It’s true that five of the six signatories were conservative premiers (the Northwest Territory’s Bob McLeod has no partisan affiliation). But then, most provinces currently have conservative governments. It’s worth noting, as well, that the provincial premiers were not demanding anything that a majority of the Senate, including a good number of nominal independents appointed by this very prime minister, had not already recommended.

The prime minister, even before rejecting half of the amendments, could have easily done it without inciting yet more fury. Something like: “We don’t agree with everything the senators have recommended, nor with all that the premiers have asked for, but we appreciate their perspective. We will carefully consider the proposed amendments and pledge to work together to find a compromise we can all live with.” It’s not hard. It’s basic statesmanship and responsible leadership. Instead, Trudeau dismissed the letter as an assault on national unity and demanded federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer denounce it. It was an appalling display. Trudeau took an already divisive issue and exploited it — twice in quick succession — to take a baldly partisan swipe at a federal rival, while slandering a half-dozen of his provincial and territorial counterparts.


This was no slip of the tongue, nor was the prime minister the only offender. Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Thursday that the government would reject “90 per cent of the Conservative amendments.” But the amendments the government was rejecting were not “Conservative” amendments, as McKenna damn well knows; Conservatives are a clear minority in the Senate. Only the agreement of a large number of Trudeau-appointed “independent” senators permitted any amendments to be sent back to the government at all. If these were Conservative amendments, Trudeau wouldn’t have been presented with them in the first place.

With these comments, the prime minister and McKenna are telling on themselves. It is clear that whatever their rhetoric about reconciliation and environmental sustainability, they’re using these bills to wage political warfare against their opponents, not to mention economic war against millions of their own citizens. All parties play partisan games, of course. But, the C-69 amendments had bipartisan support in the Senate and, in Alberta, where polls show secessionist sentiment has grown to alarming levels during Trudeau’s term, the Liberals’ preferred version of C-69 is opposed across the spectrum. The United Conservatives, the NDP, the Alberta Party and, yes, even Alberta’s Liberals, support the Senate’s amended bill, and said so in a jointly signed letter to Ottawa.

But the prime minister and McKenna don’t have the time or the regard for those who disagree with them. It’s far easier to dismiss critics as mere partisan operators than do the hard work of finding a solution that can be accepted by all in this federation of ours. If the Liberals were truly worried about unbridled partisanship endangering national unity, they wouldn’t be doing it themselves.

“Even though it is going to make my life as Liberal leader a little bit more difficult,” Trudeau said at The Canadian-Muslim Vote’s Eid dinner, a gathering of some 1,500 politically engaged Muslims, “I want you to encourage Conservative Muslims to get out and help their local Conservative candidate, to go knock [on] doors, to donate to the Conservative party, to attend a rally for the Conservative leader…I want you to make Muslim volunteers important to the Conservatives,” he added, as people started cheering and clapping.

“So that never again would any mainstream party in Canada think it’s a good idea to stoke fears and divisions against Muslims or any other group of Canadians,” he said as people stood to their feet in thunderous applause.

Canada Lost 11k Construction Jobs

Canada Lost 16,000 Jobs In May, Over 11,000 Were In Construction

Oh yeah, and look at the TSX crashing since May as well.

BTW, LEFT Vs RIGHT - Identity and ideological politics - the Hegelian dialectic - are how we got into this mess in the first place.

The Canadian economy added 27,700 jobs in May pushing the unemployment rate to its lowest level since comparable data become available in 1976, Statistics Canada reported Friday.

The unemployment rate was down 0.3 percentage points to 5.4 per cent, as the number of people looking for work decreased sharply following little change over the previous three months, the report said.

The month of May saw a notable increase in the number of full-time self-employed people.

The number of self-employed workers rose by 62,000, while the number of employees in the public and private sectors was little changed.

CIBC senior economist Royce Mendes noted that when you drill down into the details of the jobs report some of the details weren’t as good as the headline suggested.

“The details though weren’t immaculate, if you look at where the job creation was focused,” he said.

“Yes, it was focused in full-time which is solid for the Canadian economy, but it was also attributed to self-employment, which tends to be more precarious than paid employment at companies.”

Mendes also noted that hours worked were down for the month.
