Jewish groups, including B'nai Brith and the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre (FSWC), have said the second part should be unredacted and disclosed publicly so that Canadians can learn more about the country's shameful history of admitting an untold number of Nazi collaborators after the Second World War.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday senior bureaucrats are reviewing the Deschenes Commission report — a 1980s-era independent inquiry that looked at alleged Nazi war criminals in Canada — with an eye to making more of it public.

Governor General Mary Simon also said today Rideau Hall is sorry for honouring Peter Savaryn — a former chancellor of the University of Alberta who served in the same Nazi unit as Yaroslav Hunka — with the Order of Canada.

Former German soldiers or Nazis?
Your guess is as good as anyone’s…

In another “Look Over There!” Moment:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday he never suggested that individuals concerned about their rights as parents were hateful when he issued a statement in response to the thousands who attended recent protests about “gender ideology” in schools.

Speaking to reporters at a housing announcement in Vaughan, Ont., Trudeau said the post he issued Sept. 20 on X, the platform previously known as Twitter, was about taking a stand for the LGBTQ+ community.

Trudeau said in the post that “transphobia, homophobia, and biphobia have no place in this country,” adding that the country condemns “this hate and its manifestations.”

But his tweet made no distinction between parents with genuine concerns and others he has described as part of the “far right,” whom he has said were fuelling the protests.

To Trudeau, it doesn’t matter that many parents understandably interpreted his tweet as an unfair attack on them, because for him, like Humpty Dumpty, “When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’”

“I never suggested that someone who’s concerned about parental rights is somehow filled with hate or intolerance,” Trudeau said Thursday.
The term “parental rights,” which broadly refers to the desire for parents to be involved in the decisions made by their children and by schools, has gained increased popularity in Canada over the past year among people with wide-ranging concerns about efforts undertaken to make classrooms more inclusive for LGBTQ+ students among other issues.

Trudeau said when asked if he would retract his social-media comment that he will continue to stand up for the rights of everyone, whether they be Muslim Canadians or members of the LGBTQ+ community.

“We will always stand against hatred and intolerance wherever and from whoever it comes (including himself though?), but anyone who’s trying to politicize or spin this as an attack on one particular group is trying to divide communities against each other (including himself?).”

Life must be tough when you trip over your own lies on a daily basis. Will the next lie about a lie be over trannies or masking or the Freedom Convoy? Or will he be able to include the whole works in one big lie?

It’s unraveling. People are hopefully waking up. While 28 B.C. Liberals were elected in the 2020 provincial election, the party has since rebranded as BC United, making Manitoba’s Cindy Lamoureaux (MB) the ONLY provincial Liberal currently elected between east-end Toronto and the Pacific Ocean.

A single, lonely Liberal was elected in the Manitoba provincial election this week, highlighting the party’s burgeoning brand problems.

Of the 729 seats up for grabs in provincial legislatures across Canada, just 125 of them are currently held by legislators that ran under some variety of the Liberal banner in recent elections. (If the the BC United party is excluded, the figure is just 97).
Provincial Liberal parties are not necessarily linked to the federal Liberal party led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, although at times they have been, such as in the case of the Saskatchewan Liberal party, which was officially affiliated until 2009, and then renamed the Saskatchewan Progress Party in July 2023. The Liberal parties in Atlantic Canada are still linked to the federal Liberals.

The parties are also not necessarily ideologically consistent across the country. In Atlantic Canada, the Liberal parties tend to be provincial arms of the federal Liberal party, in stark contrast with the rest of the country.

The Ontario Liberals may fit the same mold as federal Liberals:
More broadly, there’s the temptation to conclude that if the provincial Liberals are doing poorly, this probably means bad things are afoot for the federal Liberals, and vice-versa. But, writes Besco, “there’s no real evidence for that.” (????)

“It’s not that the provincial support affects the federal support, or something like that. People (mostly) can tell the difference between provincial and federal parties,” Besco said. “Trudeau scandals or ethics violations or whatever don’t really hurt provincial liberals. Rather, the same broad factors are bad for the Liberal parties provincially are also bad for it federally.”

Just one day after the government caught heat for not revealing the full cost of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Easter vacation in Montana, newly released documents put the cost of protection during his summer vacation in Tofino, B.C., at $287,000.

That’s about $82,000 more than the RCMP charged for security during the PM’s five-day ski trip to the southern Montana ski community of Big Sky over the Easter long weekend.

….& it’s a long weekend folks.

This is why BC Liberals had to do a name change to BCUnited. Low information voters think that, like the NDP, all parties are one incestuous family, federal and provincial. True, there are a certain number that belong to both federal and provincial parties, but orders do not come from the feds to the provincials. BC United has a fairly broad spectrum from center/left to right wing fundamentalists. Although the fundies are slowly resurrecting the BC Conservative party. Rather unfortunate as it will split the vote and let the far left BCNDP win again.

Jewish groups, including B'nai Brith and the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre (FSWC), have said the second part should be unredacted and disclosed publicly so that Canadians can learn more about the country's shameful history of admitting an untold number of Nazi collaborators after the Second World War….
A Liberal MP apologized Thursday after comparing Conservative MPs’ attacks in question period to the work of the infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

Ken Hardie, MP for the British Columbia riding Fleetwood—Port Kells, posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, during question period on Thursday and said that “If Joseph Goebbels can pick up question period down there… he will be so proud of the Conservatives. Spouting a lie often enough and loudly enough is a tried and true tactic.”

Conservative MP Melissa Lantsman, who is Jewish, said comparing her party’s questioning to Goebbels was outrageous.

“The member from Fleetwood—Port Kells has used his platform, his public social media platform, to compare questions from this side of the House, from Conservatives, to one of the most prolific Nazis,” she said while raising a point of order about the incident.

Hardie promptly deleted the post. When Lantsman raised the point of order, Hardie did offer an apology to the House saying he had gone “elbows up,” but added he was concerned about Conservative misinformation in the House of Commons.

“I did, though, attempt to raise the issue the other day of the frequent misrepresentation coming from the Conservative side, but elbows up was a little too much in this case and I do apologize,” Hardie said.
The House of Commons is still facing fallout from last month’s recognition of Yaroslav Hunka, a 98-year-old Ukrainian man who fought with the Waffen SS Nazi unit during the Second World War, as opposed to accusations from Liberals that any opposition from any direction must be from Nazis.

Funny, he has no concerns about the liberal misinformation in the house, and the out right lies by his leader.
