Our feather brained Bluebyrdie is a CLASSIC LIE-beral!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


NONE of their values, morals or philosophy can stand HONEST SCRUTINY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You are right right that she is a "study in contradictions"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In plain English- she and her LIE-beral overlords are TWO FACED HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In summer 2014 Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals whined at Harper and called him a Racist for removing the charitable tax status of a number of so called charities - mostly Muslim oriented who were doing fund raising for terrorist groups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And yet right after the 2015 election, Our idiot Boy began sending Cdn aid to Terror group Hamas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



How HYPOCRITICAL IS THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



In late 2017 Our idiot Boy put out new requirements for charity groups seeking govt grants for soup kitchens and summer camps and etc- to be operated in summer 2018- and DEMANDING that grant seekers SIGN ON in public support of ALL LIE-beral values!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course Catholics and others- mostly Christian groups- could not sign the new agreement without violating Church teaching on abortion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or on gay rights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course LIE-berals IGNORED the Calgary Imam who told a cheering crowd that Allah allows the Faithful to SLAY GAYS so they will not be able to sin again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Muslim teaching prohibits gay sex in exactly the same way as Catholic theology!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



But Muslim groups HAD NO PROBLEM LYING as they signed the LIE-berals agreement that they immediately BROKE once govt cash was in hand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- Muslims CONTINUED to speak harshly of gay SINNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Quran contains a section explicitly permitting Muslims to LIE in defense of Islam and Cdn Muslim groups happily used that exemption for their benefit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Stung by the public reaction to this LIE-beral hypocrisy over aid to Hamas and over the hypocrite grants to SELECT charities- and stung by ongoing public anger over the Omar Khadr Krap- LIE-berals decided to show their version of justice by revoking the charitable status of a Muslim group for fund raising for terror groups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And yet in LIE-beral land- NO good deed goes un - punished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals have now revoked the charitable status of a Cdn Jewish group for offering training to teens who may one day join Israeli army!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals CLAIM they want to be diplomatic and even handed in their treatment of both sides in the Middle East- AND THEY LIE!!!!!!!


They SUPPORT Muslim terrorists who have sworn to drive the Jews into the sea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And LIE-berals condemn Jews for trying to defend themselves against Muslim attackers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



If LIE-berals wanted to be HONEST - instead of seeking to BUY MUslim votes- they would IMMEDIATELY CUT OFF AID TO HAMAS Terrorists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


If LIE-berals wanted to be FAIR- they would immediately condemn anybody who supports the Boycott, dis-investment and sanction movement against Israel as being RACIST and discriminatory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


Those who single out Israel for various "crimes and offenses" should be immediately dragged into the nearest LIE-beral Human Rights Kangaroo Court to be punished for their BIGOTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But we KNOW that will not happen because any cause that may BUY VOTES for LIE-berals -no matter how hypocritical- can NEVER been seen by them as wrong or racist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And LIE-berals are IGNORING the repeated discovery of Muslim tunnels into Israeli territory- built to smugle weapons and Terror fighters into Israel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In the north of Israel six huge tunnels have just been uncovered by Israelis and the tunnels are so huge it took 360 truck loads of cement to fill them in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And yet LIE-berals are working hard to BUY the support of Muslims who blame ALL Middle East trouble on Jews trying to protect themselves from Muslim attackers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



If our LIE-beral overlords were not such shameless HYPOCRITES - they would immediately halt their one sided and discriminatory efforts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And if LIE-berals were not so desperate to cling to power at ANY PRICE- they would immediately admit that their immigration policy is a LONG TERM social train wreck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals are bringing in all manner of charity cases who cannot survive in Canada without costly long term govt aid for housing, education and language classes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Hypocrites like Bluebyrdie will NEVER ADMIT any of this of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


She had a grand career as a civil service Hog and is grateful for the LIE-beral gravy train!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And her hubby ran a Quebec dairy farm and she is VERY GRATEFUL for the benefits showered on people like her when Pierre Trudeau set up his Milk Marketing Board!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And now the daughter of our Bluebyrdie does "research" for LIE-berals- she is just another generation of gravy train riding Hogs!!!!!!!!!!



So in gratitude for LIE-beral generosity- our Bluebyrdie LOOKS THE OTHER WAY when LIE-berals do things that are dangerous to public peace and social stability!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all- Byrdie and her family are safe and warm on the LIE-beral gravy train and nicely IMMUNE to the messes made by LIE-berals that get dumped on the heads of lesser Cdns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes- it is just more LIE-beral VOTE BUYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Its an excuse to throw money at illegals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Its also a handy way of getting illegals out of the overloaded Toronto homeless shelters and out of fleabag Kingston Rd motels !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Some illegals are already upset by the bed bugs and hookers and drug addicts and such loitering near their new homes!!!!





And it spreads the cost around......letting smaller communities pay some of the cost of education illegals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And best of all- its the usual LIE-beral grand announcement that will not be completely exposed as a FLOP till AFTER the election is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Then it will be left to the NEW GOVT to clean up the LIE-beral mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our lunatic LIE-beral overlords SAY a lot of things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Most of which is easily debunked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Just look at the kind of grand jobs and work environment they are creating for us::::



Here is an article illustrating the kind of life LIE-berals are setting up for the teeming swarms of illegals that LIE-berals have invited to Canada! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Amina Diaby died last year in an accident inside one of the GTA’s largest industrial bakeries where, the company says, worker safety is its highest concern. The 23-year-old was one of thousands of Ontarians who have turned to temporary employment agencies to find jobs that often come with low pay and little training for sometimes dangerous work.

The Star’s Sara Mojtehedzadeh went undercover for a month at the factory where Diaby worked.

By Sara Mojtehedzadeh and Brendan Kennedy

Published: September 8, 2017

There are two dozen of us crowded around a conveyor belt, bodies twisting to snatch dough off the line. The floor is strewn with raw pastries that seem to accumulate faster than anyone can sweep them up. They collect in bloated masses at our feet.

It is my first day as a temp at Fiera Foods, an industrial bakery that reeks of yeast and is alive with the constant drone of machinery.

We are forming and packing raw, circular pastry dough into wet plastic trays — a shoulder-crunching task called pinching. These may well be the croissants you eat for breakfast.

Supervisors shout at us to wake up. They shout at us to move faster, pinch nicer, work harder. No one talks through the noise and exhaustion.

The factory relies heavily on temporary help agency workers. Its health and safety record is checkered; three temps have died here or at Fiera’s affiliated companies since 1999.

Across the province, more and more people are relying on temp agencies to find work. When they do, statistics show they are more likely to get hurt on the job.

(Does this ugly work environment sound like some sort of Brave New World?)

I am undercover to investigate why.

During her undercover stint at Fiera Foods Sara Mojtehedzadeh worked on the croissant production line. She describes the pace of the work as crushing. Sara Mojtehedzadeh

Fiera’s current clients include some of the continent’s biggest brands including Dunkin’ Donuts and Sobeys; over the years it has made pastries for Costco, Tim Hortons, Metro, Walmart, and Loblaw. Its factories churn out baked goods by the truckload, destined for markets across North America and around the world. They can produce 2 million bagels alone per day.

Fiera said health and safety is a “core principle,” in response to questions from the Star. It said it contributes to Ontario’s “economic well-being” with more than 1,200 people working at its facilities in the GTA, and that it believes strongly in helping immigrants “find work and build their futures in Canada.” It also said it uses strict criteria when choosing temp agencies to work with. The company says it has given almost $1.5 million to health-care initiatives and minority communities over the past decade.

It has also received some $4.7 million in government loans and grants to expand capacity and create good jobs. The company says all employees are given “in-depth training” and that Fiera has invested half a million dollars in health and safety initiatives over the past two years.

(Oh- $4.7 million in govt loans and grants- so much for LIE-berals whining about Doug Ford and corporate welfare! Especially since Wynne-bag LIE-berals gave out $100 million dollars to Honda to expand its Alliston plant!)

I get about five minutes of training in a factory packed with industrial equipment.

I am paid in cash with no deductions or pay stubs. I pick up my wages from a payday lender, a 35-minute bus ride from the factory.

Fiera has been slapped with 191 orders for health and safety violations over the past two decades, for everything from lack of proper guarding on machines to unsafely stored gas cylinders.

(So what else is new- TSA had ticketed Sunrise Propane 3 times for illegally transferring propane from truck to truck INSTEAD of from truck to storage tank! Transferring from truck to truck allows static electricity to build up and it causes explosions- as the people around the Sunrise site- whose houses were demolished in the resulting blast can attest to!)

(Or we could talk about tv show W-5 that spent ten years exposing how unscrupulous used car dealers bought and rebuilt car wrecks and then sold them for handsome profits even though the cars were structurally unsound and unsafe in an accident! It took TEN YEARS of public shaming to get govt Hogs to take action against the wreck sellers!)

(LIE-berals TALK OFTEN about good jobs and worker safety but their mad tax policies are turning us into a nation of part timers and contract peons and temp agencies are facilitating the change!)

At least a dozen of the women I meet on my assembly line at Fiera, a multimillion dollar company, are hired through temp agencies.

Temp agency workers are changing the face of labour in Ontario.

In workplaces around the province, the use of temp agencies limits companies’ liability for accidents on the job, reduces their responsibility for employees’ rights, and cuts costs.

(Actually considering the premiums that are paid to temp agencies- I am not sure it does reduce cost to the employer! What it DOES DO is ensure a steady supply of workers who are still hungry for cash and not yet burned out!)

(LIE-berals and temp agencies are playing an UGLY WELFARE GAME with our money! The person on welfare or unemployment insurance can earn a certain amount of money before having benefits clawed back and companies are taking advantage of this! Desperate people who cannot live on their welfare payments are lured into these McJobs as a form of indentured servitude!)

(If you could get a real job you could get off welfare- but there are no real jobs because companies would rather deal with easily FIRED temp workers! And of course temp workers DO NOT get those PAID sick days that LIE-berals offered up as an election bribe! LIE-berals display their gross hypocrisy by whining that Ford is attacking workers by cancelling the two paid sick days that most workers do not get- meaning temp workers! Or that workers DO NOT NEED- meaning most civil service union Hogs already have wonderful sick leave provisions in place! LIE-berals LOVE two tier labour rates to benefit their PALS!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals are so generous to their friends that Ontari-owe teachers now have permission to stay home INDEFINITELY on full pay! Just phone in and cough and announce teacher will be staying home till........whenever!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Amina Diaby had been working at Fiera Foods for just two weeks when she was killed on the job.

When I walk into the factory, I see mostly people of colour. Many are new Canadians. Many told me they have taken this job for one reason: to survive.

In August, charges were laid against Fiera Foods under the Occupational Health and Safety Act for the 2016 death of a temp agency worker named Amina Diaby. Her hijab was caught in a machine, strangling her.

(Ah- as I suspected- the woman was Muslim! And we have had reports out of England that Muslims are more easily RADICALIZED if they do not get good, steady, reliable work! Will the husband and family of Amina Diaby think more or LESS kindly of Canada now that their family member has been killed at a sloppy work place?)

(And what of the Hijab? Most machinery of any sort carries labels WARNING SPECIFICALLY against the operator wearing loose clothing! Are Muslim women properly dressed to operate machinery safely? Sounds like NO!!!!!!!!)

She was 23 years old. She was a refugee trying to save for nursing school. She had been on the job two weeks.


(What price low cost croissants now if it incites angry Muslim terrorists?)

Fiera Foods’ Marmora St. factory in North York sits beside a highway and behind a Bingo hall, a sprawling presence on a small cul-de-sac dotted with storefront churches and auto-repair shops.

The company also owns another factory close by. Randy Risling

A white placard adorns the factory’s main entrance. It directs workers with “temporary employment” inquiries inside.

Fiera Foods is a private company founded by Boris Serebryany and Alex Garber in 1987, after the two men emigrated from the former Soviet Union. Fiera has another factory on Norelco Dr., about 15 minutes away from the Marmora St. plant. Boris and Alex are also the administrators of Tristar Bakers and Bakery Deluxe Co., located on Norfinch Dr.

(AH- And where would two Russian immigrants from the impoverished 1987 Soviet Union get the money to open such facilities? Shall we ask if it is a combination of Russian Mob money and exploitation of workers that is behind the success? And we KNOW LIE-berals do not bother to track laundered money!)

Adjacent to Fiera’s Marmora St. plant is Marmora Freezing Corp., whose administrators are Anna Garber and Boris’s daughter Carmela Serebryany-Harris. Carmela is also one of the administrators of CMS Ontario, along with Susin Svetlana Garber. David Gelbloom is the administrator of Upper Crust.

Fiera describes these five companies as its “alliance partners.”

(Uh huh-and this biz sounds just like the old days of the “Family Compact” in Upper Canada- that gang of Brit aristocrats - all related by blood and marriage who treated Canada like a private piggy bank! It took a rebellion to dump the Family Compact!)

(What will it take to bring peace between civil service union Hogs, the peons labouring for temp agencies, LIE-berals, and the illegals and immigrants who all expected something better from Canada? With ordinary Cdn tax payers caught in the middle?????)

Here is the truth about the beliefs of ordinary Cdns regarding Muslim immigrants-with the same values needing to be applied to illegals generally. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Canadians want a light shone on radical Islam


By Anthony Furey, Postmedia Network. First posted: Tuesday, February 21, 2017 05:08 PM EST | Updated: Wednesday, February 22, 2017 03:03 PM EST

Last year, I revealed news that the imam of a mosque that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited was publicly listed on the mosque’s very website as the member of a group that was designated a terrorist organization abroad and whose leader had been banned from entering the United Kingdom and France for his extremist views.

While regular Canadians read the story with great interest, the mainstream media surprisingly wanted nothing to do with it.

The only other coverage that came out of it was a write up or two of the press release the mosque sent out denouncing my reporting. At the same time, local politicians and even law enforcement took aim at me and someone at the Prime Minister’s Office even had the gall to call me up and chew me out for it.

Trudeau visits mosque with terror connections. Mosque calls Sun story 'categorically false'.

(And LIE-berals wonder why we are worried about their M 103 `motion` condemning Islamophobia and why we are being such `bigots` when LIE-berals sneer at a Cdn reporter just doing his job? AND LIE-berals are also offended by being CALLED LIE-berals-even as they get caught `managing` fake news!)

Nobody ever did explain what was incorrect about my reporting, despite my multiple attempts to receive clarification from the mosque and imam. As such, the story today remains on the record -although the mosque's website now no longer mentions the group in question.

(Typical LIE-beral/Muslim handling of propaganda-if it is hidden from western view then they can claim it must be `untrue`?)

Then along comes M103, Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s motion that denounces all forms of racism and discrimination and calls for a committee study into the issue but singles out that nebulous buzzword “Islamophobia”.

(And just what is that committee studying? They KNOW we are worried about Jihadist jerks attacking us. They know we are looking at a pack of Muslim newcomers who want to change Canada to suit themselves and are expecting WE will foot the bills for their wants! They KNOW there is a LONG list of Muslims choosing to attack the people they were born amongst. I have said before that Islamophobia is LIE-beral slang for people who are critical of LIE-beral policy!)

I’ve just looked back on the press release the mosque sent out concerning my work and see with great interest that my piece, according to them, “fans the flame of Islamophobia”.

Oh dear. Looks like I’m in a bit of a pickle here. Canada’s parliamentarians are poised to exercise their vote in the coming months to call for a committee to deal with ... me? And for what wrong-doing? For reporting something that in the eyes of me, my editors and my lawyers appeared to be a basic fact?

(And LIE-berals are also attacking ordinary Cdns who happen to think that “basic fact” about the Jihadists creeping amongst us is of concern to them!)

This in a nutshell illustrates the problematic direction this motion could be heading us in and why so many thousands of Canadians have taken to speaking up on it via emails to their MPs and adding their names to petitions.

Liberal MP Arif Virani said in the House of Commons recently that “understanding what we mean by Islamophobia is not difficult. When we speak about Islamophobia, we are not talking about legitimate questions about a religion or a respectful criticism of religious practices. When we speak about Islamophobia, we are talking about taking a stand against prejudice, against abuse, against discrimination targeted toward individuals for no reason other than the fact that they practise Islam.”

Decent people should agree about the abuse and targeting part. The violent threats Khalid has received are wrong and appropriate legal action should be taken. Full stop.

But it’s when we start talking about what is and isn’t a “legitimate” or “respectful” question that you run into trouble. Who among us should be trusted to define these parameters? I was denounced for “Islamophobia” for simply doing my job. Clearly my line of inquiry was illegitimate and disrespectful in the eyes of some, including the PMO.

(There is also the very sensitive Muslim ego to consider when making any comment about Islam. For instance, Muslims consider any art display of human image to be blasphemous. So when a Danish cartoonist produced an image of a Muslim with a bomb in his turban, we all laughed while Muslims burned at the insult to Islam generally and to Allah specifically. It is this reasoning that persuaded Muslims to murder the Danish cartoonist and his editor! Muslims wish to carefully edit anything we may want to say about Islam-and their editing will INCLUDE removal of any comment alleging Muslim bigotry or decrying Muslims for seeking violent solutions to all their alleged troubles, slights and injuries.)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the many hundreds of emails, phone calls and social media messages I’ve received over the past few weeks, it’s that Canadians want more light shone on radical Islam, not less.

The discussion around M103 has served as something of a catalyst. It's opened a Pandora’s box of broader questions and concerns about Islam in Canada that can’t be neatly put back together.

If the mainstream refuses to be a responsible conduit for the discussion, it’ll keep being had on social media or in the fringes of alternative news forums where there are few moderating voices to steer it on the right path. In the mean time, people’s trust in traditional voices will only erode further.

(Its worth pointing out that public faith in LIE-berals is also being seriously eroded as LIE-berals seek ever more devious ways to move ahead with their grossly self serving policies-designed ONLY to ensure they buy enough votes to cling to power! If LIE-berals manage to win another election after having displayed this sort of duplicity and reverse bigotry they will be emboldened and will brazenly move ahead with policies that many Cdns think are short sighted, selfish and destructive!)

Oh Bluebyrdie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


Better watch out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


you are turning LIE-beral "bullsh+t brown"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The writer of that Fake News piece -LIE-beral news media whore Stephen Zhou - is deliberately putting words into the mouth of Sun writer Anthony Furey by REFUSING TO CLEARLY SEPARATE the opinions of Zhou from the QUITE CONTRARY WORDS of Furey!!!!!!!!


Zhou seems to have co-opted Furey and TWISTED HIS WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Your propaganda piece is now EXPOSED FOR THE GARBAGE IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HOW PATHETIC that LIE-berals such as yourself are reduced to trying comfort each other with these obscure and misleading bits of TWISTED NONSENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


By the way Byrdie......as you are down in Arizona enjoying the sunshine at your second home.........have you heard anything much of the Lavalin scandal in Ottawa?????????



Does Yankee media cover that at all????????????????????????????


And if so- has anybody pointed out that while LIE-beral news media wants to talk about essentially trivial bribes Lavalin paid to World Bank officials in third world pest holes............................................. ...


Ordinary Cdns want to talk about how Lavalin BROKE Cdn election laws written by LIE-beral Jean Chretien!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- Lavalin "encouraged" its employees to make donations to the LIE-beral party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


Possibly in much the same way that Our idiot Boy may have "encouraged" Jody Wilson-Raybould to GO EASY on Lavalin!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the CRIME IS HERE- that LAVALIN "encouraged" its employees to donate to LIE-berals and then Lavalin PAID the employees for the LIE-beral donations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


And Lavalin DID THIS KNOWING THAT LIE-beral CHRETIEN HAD BANNED ALL CORPORATE DONATIONS TO POLITICAL PARTIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!



Not only has Lavalin been accused of breaking election law- they stand accused of BREAKING LIE-BERAL LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh dear.........HOW WILL OUR IDIOT BOY TALK HIS WAY OUT OF THIS ONE??????????????????????????


His Sunny Ways are apparently shining on some SERIOUS SLIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


And apparently there is NOT time enough to resolve this issue in the courts PROPERLY............BEFORE we have our election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is the dirty secret at the heart of the SNC Lavalin affair that LIE-berals- with the aid of LIE-beral friendly media whores ARE TRYING TO HIDE! With some comments of my own in brackets):

SNC-Lavalin violated Elections Act with contributions to Liberals,


The federal elections commissioner says SNC-Lavalin entered into a compliance agreement for making nearly $118,000 in contributions that violated the Canada Elections Act.

The Canadian Press. Updated: September 8, 2016

By Bruce Cheadle

(NOTE THE DATE this article was published! This is the CLASSIC media whore defense of LIE-berals whenever something damaging comes up! LIE-beral friendly media makes one obscure announcement that few people see or hear about- and then they change the subject!)

(In 2019 - all that is currently being discussed is how Lavalin made some bribes in third world pest holes- with the LIE-beral narrative asserting that the charges ARE TRIVIAL!)

(But the charges GROW MORE SERIOUS when one discovers the long BURIED report that Lavalin was violating election law WRITTEN BY LIE-berals- and that Wilson-Raybould may have quit cabinet over the way Our idiot Boy wants to handle the alleged CRIMINAL ACTIVITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

OTTAWA — Montreal-based global engineering giant SNC-Lavalin continues to dig out from a series of corporate governance scandals, this time involving improper donations to federal political parties over a seven-year period ending in 2011.

A compliance agreement with the federal elections commissioner, announced Thursday, details almost $118,000 in donations to the Liberal and Conservative parties through company employees or their spouses who were then reimbursed by SNC-Lavalin.

This illegal practice for skirting corporate donation limits was identified by a Quebec anti-corruption inquiry as a widespread problem in municipal and Quebec provincial politics, although the provincial Charbonneau Commission’s mandate prevented it from following federal political threads.

Not so federal Elections Commissioner Yves Côté, whose office says it continues to pursue the matter.

(And we have had a series of reports that indicate that Quebec has the most corrupt govts in Canada! With organized crime being so well set up that ALL govt contracts allegedly carry a “finders fee” for criminals! And based on what is happening with Raybould it would appear that Our idiot Boy wants to make damned sure that VERY LITTLE dirty laundry gets aired in public!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

According to the agreement entered into by SNC-Lavalin, former senior executives approached employees to make political contributions and, in some cases, those employees were reimbursed with refunds for false personal expenses, fictitious bonuses or other benefits.

The improperly donated sums included: $83,534.51 to the Liberal Party of Canada; $13,552.13 to various Liberal riding associations; $12,529.12 to four contestants in the 2006 Liberal leadership race, including $5,000 each to Michael Ignatieff and Bob Rae; $3,1137.73 to the Conservative Party of Canada; and $5,050 to various Conservative riding associations.

(Oh that`s NICE! Lavalin admits to giving out $118 grand in court and then lawyers will forget about the tens of millions! AND Lavalin gives that token $13 million to Conservatives and $83 million to LIE-berals! Give a little to Conservatives just to muddy the waters and give a BIG CHUNK to LIE-berals- that Lavalin clearly prefers!!!!!!!!!)

All the funds have been repaid to the federal treasury by the respective national parties, both of whom disavow any knowledge of the scheme.

(The entire court deal is a DIRTY SNAKE PIT and there apparently needs TO BE A PUBLIC AIRING OF THE DIRTY LAUNDRY! The fact that Conservative Scheer is demanding a FULL INQUIRY while Our idiot Boy is apparently trying to make the problems DISAPPEAR and is so eager to dismiss the mess that he would get into a public dog fight with his Justice Minister over his alleged “directing” of the court case rather suggests that LIE-berals DO KNOW all about the dirt -while Conservatives DO NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“As soon as LPC was made aware of the issue last month by Elections Canada, the party acted immediately to fully reimburse all of the amounts involved, including those pertaining to 2006 leadership campaigns (which have long since closed their accounts),” Liberal spokesman Braeden Caley said in an email.

Conservative party spokesman Cory Hann said the improper funds “were returned to the receiver general as soon as we were notified these individuals’ donations were reimbursed by a corporation,” adding the party expects donors to act truthfully and within the law.

The independent elections watchdog said SNC-Lavalin co-operated fully with its investigation, accepts responsibility for the improper payments and acknowledges the contributions were made on the company’s behalf. The compliance agreement, however, does not constitute an admission of guilt under criminal law.

The deal includes SNC-Lavalin hiring an in-house ethics watchdog, putting in place new “compliance and governance policies to detect, curb and prevent ethically problematic practices” and updating its corporate code of conduct to specifically deal with political donations.

“I am pleased that this agreement was reached,” SNC-Lavalin CEO Neil Bruce said in a statement. “It once again shows our desire and commitment to resolve past issues.”

(Uh huh! Or at least it reveals how badly Lavalin officials want to bury this dogs breakfast- with LIE-beral AID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Earlier this year, SNC-Lavalin announced it was making restitution to municipalities and other public bodies in Quebec for obtaining contracts through questionable means. The provincial government started a program last year to recover money paid in connection with public contracts obtained as a result of fraud or fraudulent tactics.

(And just HOW FAR does this use of “questionable means” extend into Quebec Politics? How much of the truth has YET TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY-now that lawyers have agreed to bury the legal hatchet AND any undisclosed truth???) And shall we assume that this years legal penalties will be TAX DEDUCTIONS FOR NEXT YEAR ????)

Last December, the company signed a confidential “administrative agreement” with the federal Public Works Department that allows it to continue bidding on government contracts while overseas corruption charges against former SNC-Lavalin executives work their way through the courts. Under new rules introduced just before last year’s federal election, companies facing corruption charges can be barred from bidding on government work for 18 months — or for 10 years upon conviction.

( If the “administrative agreement” is squeaky clean then WHY is it confidential?)

(And the new anti corruption charges were introduced by Harper Conservatives early in 2015? Suggesting that Harper was getting steadily increasing hints of how big the Lavalin problem might be - if anybody investigated it fully and honestly! So Harper moved to make it harder for schemers to profit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Analysts estimate as much as 20 per cent of SNC-Lavalin’s business is with Canadian governments.

Back in 2004, when the compliance agreement says the first improper party donations were occurring, SNC-Lavalin was a partner in one of the principal private supply contracts for the Canadian military in Afghanistan, operating on a 10-year contract worth as much as $700 million, according to one report.

(And it was LIE-beral Chretien that sent the Cdn troops to Afghanistan!)

The Charbonneau Commission, which began its work in 2011, heard allegations about the existence of an illegal political fund raising system that was controlled, municipally and provincially, by engineering companies that were also active in political financing at the federal level.

(OH? Illegal fund raising by engineering companies -as in PLURAL? So who else is involved? Or was the Charbonneau investigative mandate TOO LIMITED????)

One witness, former construction boss Lino Zambito, testified that bigger engineering companies often demanded he deliver cash donations to provincial parties in amounts far exceeding the legal fundraising limit. Zambito said he would split up the donations and filter them through friends, family and employees.

(Gosh! Witness Zambito certainly THINKS there were multiple engineering companies involved! I guess nobody checked out his testimony??????)

(WE may even ask if the employees EVEN KNEW they were making donations? After all who is to say donations were not made in their names by anonymous others? How dirty did this established business get???????????)

SNC-Lavalin vice-president Yves Cadotte testified the company helped raise money for Quebec political parties despite a three-decade-old law against corporate donations. He told the commission dozens of SNC executives donated just over $1 million to the Quebec Liberal party and the Parti Quebecois between 1998 and 2010.

(AS I recall, it was Bloc Quebecois leaders who banned corporate donations to provincial political parties in Quebec because the Bloc so seldom got any donations from biz- and so they moved to cancel out the donations to their opponents!)

(That the Lavalin affair has returned to court and come back to the public eye suggests to this disgusted tax payer that the mess has NOT been resolved in a fair and honest way! Apparently all that has been done so far is for some stinking lawyers to gather in a back room and cobble together some quick and dirty excuses and then try to BURY the dirt before the reek gets so nasty it starts damaging political careers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Andrew Scheer is RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Lavalin mess NEEDS A FULL INQUIRY! And our LIE-beral loving news media DESERVES PUBLIC SCORN for apparently helping LIE-berals hide what appears to be the second greatest political scandal in Cdn History!!!!)

(The Lavalin scandal appears to me to be second ONLY to the LIE-beral adscam mess in which LIE-berals stand accused of receiving three billion dollars stolen from the Human Resources Ministry! The adscam scandal which occurred when LIE-beral Chretien was PM, and representing Quebec riding- is the greatest Cdn scandal!!! And the Minister in charge at the time was Alphonse Galliano- ALSO from Quebec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(It appears to this disgusted Cdn that the investigation into Adscam was just as INCOMPLETE as the Lavalin inquiry!!!!!!! Chretien made efforts to LIMIT the scope of the investigation and in the end only two men- neither of them actual memebers of the LIE-beral party went to jail!)

(The first man to be convicted was given both a jail term and $2 million dollar fine! With the jail term to be ended just as soon as he paid the fine! And of course at trial the guy pleaded that he was bankrupt! But within two months of getting his sentence - that pay the fine or go to jail deal- the dead broke guy PAID the two million dollar fine! With the help of some very generous anonymous friends!! After all, how many pals would you have to hit up for $2 million dollars WORTH OF GIFTS???????????? )

(When the money was paid up - even the judge was skeptical but the CONVICT glibly explained that some un-named “friends” had helped him out with “donations”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(This is all to illustrate yet again why some politicians are called LIE-BERALS! And why we should DEMAND ANSWERS about Lavalin and those other un-named engineering companies!!!!!!!!)

Here is an article with a not so surprising point of view! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Immigrants and young single moms among those who struggle most with poverty


By Mary Getaneh, Star, Metro Calgary

Published Thu., June 7, 2018

CALGARY— Immigrants, Indigenous groups and women are heavily represented among low-income residents in Calgary, according to a new report on poverty in the city.

(And WHO would be surprised that the least educated and least skill among us and those with dependant children would have poverty issues? Various economists have made it known how very many Cdns are one pay cheque away from fiscal disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The report, released earlier this week, is from Vibrant Communities Calgary, a non-profit that works at reducing the number of Calgarians living in poverty.
Syma Habib said the Alex Community Food Centre sees about 300 people a week, most of whom are on social assistance and are from a marginalized groups.

Franco Savoia, executive director of Vibrant Communities Calgary, said the report is “a snapshot” of the rate of low-income residents in the city, based on Statistics Canada’s Census 2016.

(As this report was published in June, 2018- and the Alberta economy - based so much on oil has pretty much collapsed- I would suggest the numbers living in poverty are up SUBSTANTIALLY IN THIS February 2019!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“In 2005 the per cent of people living below the low income tax was about 10.3 per cent, now it is at 8.1 per cent,” said Savoia. “When you take the population, we grew as a city, but our poverty did not grow correspondingly.”

(But it is unfortunate that Savoia makes NO DISTINCTION between various groups living in poverty! Such as the swarms of illegals who lack the educational or language skills to survive in Canada- and which many Cdns want DEPORTED as we don’t feel able to supply the costly govt aid the illegals require!)

(And how many living in poverty are drug addicts- the people for whom Cdns have little sympathy since it IS A PERSONAL CHOICE to start using dangerous drugs that render the user under unfit for ANY employment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Nor does Savoia mention how many mentally ill people are living in poverty- with LIE-berals apparently unwilling to provide the aid these people would need to function effectively!!!!!!!!!!)

(And what of the indigenous population? Since over 75 percent of Cdn jobs now require POST SECONDARY EDUCATION- and only 25 percent of natives graduate from high school it stands to reason that natives would live in poverty!!)

(And should we not discuss the unemployed oil workers who have been abandoned by LIE-beral govt that is determined to DESTROY the Alberta oil patch and all its related spin off jobs- WITHOUT offering any practical alternative employment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Wildly stubborn LIE-berals are focused on electric Toy cars that consumers do not want and which tax payers cannot afford to subsidize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(There are solutions to poverty but LIE-berals refuse to use these options for fear of losing votes!!!!!!!!!!!)

Though there are more people living poverty now, said Savoia.

Single women over 75 and single mothers with children under the age of five experience low income at twice the age of their male counterparts, the report shows.

(Yes- the issue of aged single women in poverty is a sad one and of course govt COULD pay the elderly MORE- if only LIE-berals were not so busy buying costly votes from greedy gravy train riding civil service union HOGS! And of course closing the border to illegals demanding our charity for the rest of their lives would give us the option of re-directing money to our elderly as well!!!!!!!!)

“Immigrants and refugees are overrepresented as are Indigenous people. Women are also carrying more of the brunt of poverty than men in the city,” said Savoia.

(The LIE-beral immigration system is riddled with idiot holes that all manner of UNSUITABLE PEOPLE can sneak through to gain entry and access to our charity! Anthony Dooley - who was a convicted drug dealer - made a refugee claim before beating his son to death! Accepting the refugee claims for Dooley and wife Marcia was a staggeringly COSTLY MISTAKE- that will ultimately cost us TEN MILLION DOLLARS in court costs and jail time - WITHOUT FACTORING for inflation!!!)

(And what of the $37 million dollars LIE-berals paid out to 3 suspected jihadist jerks who should NEVER have been allowed into Canada?????????????)

(And shall we not mention the First Family of Terror- the Khadr Klan? Why would LIE-beral Chretien invite papa Khadr- already a convicted terrorist bomber- to immigrate to Canada? Why not leave the guy to ROT in his Italian jail cell?)

(The youngest Khadr son was seriously crippled while fighting Yankee forces and will require COSTLY ongoing access to Cdn medical care for the rest of his life- and how much will THAT COST? LIE-berals are SILENT!)

(Omar Khadr is INFAMOUS for being paid $10.5 million dollars for the pain and suffering he endured while FIGHTING AGAINST CDN FORCES in Afghanistan!
And LIE-berals insanely try to defend this blood money while most Cdns think the Khadrs should be damned grateful they were not all hanged as traitors!!!!!!!!!)

Savoia said this could be for a number of reasons. Women generally earn less than men and are under-represented in higher-paying jobs. If these women are single mothers, child care costs add another barrier.

(It has been claimed that over 70 percent of black mothers are single parents- which suggests a huge break down in social cohesion and it begs the question about the value of long term LIE-beral immigration policy since too many children of immigrants previously selected by LIE-beral Pierre Trudeau are STRUGGLING -even as Our idiot Boy REPEATS the mistakes of his father!!!!!!!!!!!!)

He said for immigrants and Indigenous groups there is often systemic and structural racism that can keep them from accessing jobs.

(Nearly 30 years ago Time magazine told us that black men under age thirty got paid only one half of one percent LESS than their equally educated white counterparts! It is NOT racism that is holding people back in thi modern age - it is crap attitudes -encouraged by LIE-berals - that have convinced black kids- and native kids as well- that getting an education is selling out to white society!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Syma Habib, community advocacy co-ordinator for the Alex Community Food Centre, said that poverty is a big issue in Calgary.

“It’s a huge issue and the worst part is that it’s entirely preventable,” said Habib. “We can build the right social and structural supports to avoid it. Poverty does not do good things, but people are still in it and that's unfortunate.”

(Sadly some people - addicts who really have only themselves to blame; and the mentally ill whom LIE-berals are neglecting; and lumping them in with illegals- who WOULD WORK if there was anything useful they could do; and lumping them in with oil workers who are being BLOCKED from working by idiot LIE-beral policy is out right dishonest! One size does NOT fit all!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“Income really is the biggest thing. The barriers that marginalized communities — especially, women, newcomers and Indigenous populations — are often accessing employment.”

(Bad immigration choices by LIE-berals crap education attitudes among ethnic groups is NOT something to blame on average white people! And trying to build up addicts and the uneducated by imposing crippling taxes on ordinary Cdns is NOT a viable solution as LIE-beral polling numbers reveal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Most of the people the service centre serves are on social assistance, but that isn’t cutting it, Habib said.

“The average single female will be making about $667 a month which is not enough to cover rent and food.”

One potential way to alleviate poverty is by introducing a universal basic income, which Habib said is what many organizations in the city are hoping to start advocating for.

(In other words- Habib wants to create an entire sub culture of drug addicts. Illegals and welfare bums all supported in grand style by that other portion of the |Cdn economy that DOES MANAGE its affairs in a sensible way! How can poverty pimps such as Habib JUSTIFY destroying the lives of INDUSTRIOUS PEOPLE with huge new taxes to support screw ups? Poverty Pimps are selling a LIE- that the money they are DEMANDING can somehow be produced without FURTHER DESTROYING our economy and lives with huge new debts!!!!!!!!!!)

“We are seeing in Ontario the beginnings of these universal basic income pilots,” said Habib.

(Oh that sad give away experiment is as popular as Kathleen Wynne- and just as dead politically to!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“If you put income in the hands of people who don’t have it, it doesn't get wasted. It gets put into food, housing and educational opportunities.”

(Too bad Habib is IGNORING the TRUTH- that the money SHE WANTS- is ALREADY being put into food, housing and educational opportunities BY THE PEOPLE WHO EARNED THE MONEY and who voted against giving more of their money to Wynne-bag LIE-berals!! And the NDP Notley govt looks like having a Wynne-bag style rejection in the next election- for similar reasons!!!!!!!)

Savoia said that although the numbers are still high, policies like the Alberta Child Benefit and the low income transit pass will reflect positively in the number of people living in poverty assessed during the group’s next report.

(Alberta MIGHT be able to be more generous if LIE-berals would get out of the way and allow oil pipelines to be built! There are a LOT of jobs hanging on that SCREWED UP LIE-beral environmental policy! There are many countries that would rather buy Cdn oil than pay oil money to Iranian or Russian dictators!! Completing Kinder Morgan does not mean more emissions- it simply makes ETHICAL OIL available to various markets that will then CUT OUT the dictators and with less cash in hand the dictators will NOT buy so many weapons!!!!!!!)

(And of course Cdn oil is produced under TIGHTER REGULATIONS than any other country! Cleanly produced Cdn oil on market pushes aside the more dirty production of dictators and makes for a more peaceful world!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Only a shameless vote buying LIE-beral desperate to cling to power at any price would object to making life harder for dictators!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

And yet you reserve the right to speak evil nonsense about the economy, about crime rates, about the environment, about grand new public transit you will never build, about the freedom and democracy that you are working so hard to weaken and compromise!!!!!!!!!!!!


At every turn, LIE-beral policy is based on LIES, evasions of reality, distorted and deceitful numbers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


One simple example is this one::: HOW can our economy be "booming" and at the same time be loaded with record debt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


WE are struggling to maintain existing essential services!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Building anything new is apparently IMPOSSIBLE due to massive and growing debts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


The huge contradiction between LIE-beral economic claims versus debt reality PROVES THE LIE-beral LIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



If our economy really was booming then our standard of living should be going UP - not down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is yet another article illustrating how little real concern LIE-berals have for our environment! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Herbicide Is What’s for Dinner!

How the biggest farming practice you’ve never heard of is changing your food.

By Miranda Hart November 22, 2018

Driving down a grid road in central Saskatchewan, a machine that looks like a giant insect approaches me in a cloud of dust. The cab, hanging 8 feet above the road, is suspended by tires at least 6 feet tall, with wing-like appendages folded along each side. Should I drive around it or under it?

It is harvest season, and the high-clearance sprayer is on its way to desiccate a field. Desiccation may be the most widespread farming practice you’ve never heard of. Farmers desiccate by applying herbicide to their crops; this kills all the plants at the same time, making them uniformly dry and easier to cut. In essence, desiccation speeds up plant aging. Before desiccation, crops would have to dry out naturally at the end of the season. Today, almost all conventional crops are desiccated in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Chances are that most of what you ate today was harvested using a desiccant, but you’d never know.

The future: A fleet of combines harvests a field of desiccated peas on the Shewchuk farm near Saskatoon. The uniform senescence of the crop has made it dry, causing the combines to kick up chaff and dust as they work. Miranda Hart

Mike Shewchuk jumps down from his swather as I pull into his farmyard. He is a young farmer whose blond brush cut and a robust stride would have not been out of place 50 years ago. Along with his dad, uncles, and brother, he farms 15,000 acres an hour outside of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. They recently received a century farm award, for having continuously farmed the land since the early 1900s.

He is in the middle of a cut, and asks if I would mind riding with him as we talk. I climb up beside him on a small fold-down seat.

Swathers are giant lawn mowers farmers use to cut crops. The cut plants are left to dry on the ground before combining. It can be tricky knowing when to cut. If you start too early, you’ll get too many green seeds. Depending on the crop, that might lead to early germination (wheat) or self-combustion (canola). But if you wait too long, you may be scraping your seeds off the ground after the snow melts.

I doubted that I’ll be able to tell which fields had been desiccated. But the shriveled, brown peas are in stark relief to the green fields around it.

Swathing is quickly going out of fashion, as most farmers desiccate to ripen their crops. One of the big agro-chemical companies even has a marketing campaign with the hashtag #sellyourswather, encouraging farmers to desiccate and ditch swathing altogether. I asked Mike why he hadn’t sold his swather yet.

He laughs. “We’re not desiccating canola, and canola is paying the bills right now.”

Swathing is a delicate process- heavily influenced by weather- a few rainy days or even high humidity can really mess up the drying process!

For many farmers, that is changing. Until recently, farmers did not desiccate canola because it “shattered” the seedpods, shedding the seeds in soil. But breeders have been busy: In 2017, five new varieties of shatter-resistant canola were released in Canada. That will make desiccation viable for Canada’s second-most common crop, and accelerate a trend that began around 10 years ago, when desiccation started to become popular.

Not coincidentally, it was also around then that herbicide use spiked. When you sit down to eat dinner today, there will probably be desiccant in your food.

(And of course although industry establishes “SAFE” levels of contaminants that the public may consume- nobody is doing much to see how all the various chemicals we are eating and breathing MAY be reacting and working with each other to cause various cancers!!!!)

(For LIE-berals its all about cost savings and GRAVY!!!!!!! Our health is not a concern in the LIE-beral SHORT ATTENTION SPAN! The LIE-beral concern is for keeping food bills LOW so there will be room in your grocery budget and CASH available for the Carbon tax scams that are being tacked onto your bills!) (And LIE-berals are using the carbon scam to pay for their MANY ENTITLEMENTS!!!!)

There are thousands of ways to kill a weed. You can starve it, bleach it, mess with its proteins. You can feed it fake hormones. You can force it to make acid so that it disintegrates from within. There are more than 400 licensed weed killers, or herbicides, in Ontario alone. And we love to use them. Canadians used more than 58,000 tons in 2014, compared with only 21,000 tons in 1994. Our landscape, and our crops, have never been so saturated.

(So much for any hope of eating clean organic food! Especially since tv show W 5 did an expose on the ALLEGED organic food being sold in “farmers markets”! Turns out most of THAT is merely mass produced stuff with quaint and healthy sounding labels -obtained from the same suppliers your supermarket uses!!!!!!!)

Our thirst for herbicides is partly due to GMOs like RoundupReady corn, soy, and canola. These herbicide-tolerant crops came on the market in the late 1990s, and changed the farming landscape by making it possible to control weeds by using herbicides on crops still in the field.

Herbicide resistance explains part of the increase in herbicide use around the world over the past decades. If you blast a weed with herbicide, eventually its cells become resistant. Farmers are left with fields of weeds they can’t kill. This is what happens in people, with antibiotic resistant bugs. Faced with resistant weeds, farmers double down, spraying even more and using multiple herbicides. But desiccation accounts for a significant part of the growth in herbicide use. It’s impossible to say precisely how much, because stats are tracked for herbicide use by crop—not by usage type.

In theory, anything that kills a plant can desiccate a crop, but farmers can only use herbicides that are licensed as desiccants. In practice, there are only a few that are regularly used.

Glyphosate is increasingly used as, or with, desiccants. It’s sold under the trade name RoundUp, and is the most commonly used herbicide in the world, as well as the most commonly used desiccant. In 1974, global use of glyphosate was 3,200 tons per year. It is expected to reach 1 million tons per year by 2020.1 In the U.S., the rate of growth has been accelerating. Between 1995 and 2004, glyphosate use grew by 356 percent. Between 2005 and 2014, it grew by 637 percent.

(So as use of these chemicals has increased- so have the number and type of cancers as well as the number of autistic and severely allergic kids! At the same time we have seen an exponential growth in the number of antibiotic resistant “super bugs”! With doctors telling us the number of still useful antibiotics is shrinking so rapidly that a global pandemic disease that will kill off most of the human race may not be far away!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!)

Glyphosate works by interrupting protein synthesis in plants, rendering them unable to photosynthesize. It is also considered relatively safe for humans. But in 2015 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared it a possible carcinogen, on the basis of an independent survey of the scientific literature. Outrage from governments and industry around the world fueled a reanalysis by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and WHO, which concluded in 2016 that it was “unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans through diet.”

(Oh! Roundup is RELATIVELY SAFE? That makes me feel warm all over! As I have said- the short attention span of LIE-berals is focused on more gravy- NOT on long term cancer risk!)

Industry, and farmers, breathed a sigh of relief. The reports analyzed, however, did not consider the increase in exposure to glyphosate via desiccation. This practice has dramatically increased the dissemination of glyphosate into the environment, and into us.

(So the LIE-beral FIX is in- they are only counting PART of our exposure!!!!!)

There have been no explicit tests of the effect of desiccation on our microbiome.

I asked Sheri Roberts, a crop specialist with Agriculture and Agrifood Canada in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, whether she thought desiccation was safe. She was reluctant to make the call, but said she wished it was not so commonly used. “The timing’s really tight,” she said. “If you don’t get it just right, that herbicide ends up in the grain.” If farmers apply a non-contact herbicide (like glyphosate) too early, it will be taken up by the growing plant and end up inside the seed. Non-contact herbicides are taken up by the living plant and incorporated into still growing tissues, while contact herbicides kill the tissues they touch.

A 2015 study by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found glyphosate in 30 percent of 3,200 food products.3 Similar studies have found glyphosate exceeding maximum residue limits (or MRLs) in Cheerios, beer, and wine. 4,5 MRLs are the allowable concentration of herbicides on food crops. Health Canada and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) come up with MRLs by feeding rats or dogs herbicide until an effect is observed. The figures are important for trade: If countries have different MRLs, shipments can be rejected. In 2011, the European Union rejected a shipment of Canadian lentils because MRLs were 40 times the EU limit. Alternatively, countries can use MRLs to negotiate a lower price, or raise their MRLs in response to industry pressure.

(So measurement of MRL`s are also dependent on LIE-beral lust for GRAVY- rather than any consideration for our health!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

According to the EPA, between 1993 and 2015, glyphosate MRLs increased by 100 percent to 1,000 percent in the U.S., depending on the crop. Desiccation has changed the game: Because we are using more herbicides, herbicide residues and MRLs have also gone up. Countries can use MRLs as a bartering tool to negotiate lower prices, and will raise their MRLs in response to pressure. Monsanto and other manufacturers of glyphosate have requested increases in MRLs, and been granted many of them.

(Oh nice- environmentally unconscious LIE-berals banned many chemicals for home use but allowed industrial use to SOAR! And then did not bother doing much testing on the long term effects!!!!!!!!!!!)

Current MRLs for glyphosate range from 0.2 ppm to more than 300 ppm, depending on the crop. Between 1993 and 2015, the U.S. EPA glyphosate tolerance levels have increased by a factor of 50 for corn, and 2,000 for alfalfa.2

As MRLs rise, some industry groups are starting to avoid desiccated crops. Stuart Smyth, an agricultural economist at the University of Saskatchewan, tells me that certain oat millers are no longer accepting desiccated oats. “They say it’s because they don’t mill as well,” he says, “but there’s not a single study showing this.”

The millers might be worried about more than oat milling properties. General Mills, producer of Nature Valley granola bars, was recently sued by a group disputing their claim to be 100 percent natural. Because oats are commonly desiccated before harvest, the grains contain glyphosate residues. The case was dismissed in July this year, because the judge ruled that the glyphosate residues satisfied EPA standards.

(Just because it satisfies EPA standards DOES NOT MEAN the product is “natural” according to common public use of the word! LIE-berals are playing word games with us as they pretend a concern for the environment!!!!!!)
