Politicians, and all senior bureaucraps need a serious pay cut. Look at the sunshine list to see where your hard earned money goes. It isn't to feed and house the poor.

Trudeau Liberals handing out millions to help put crickets on menu

Looks like they do want us to eat crickets after all as the Justin Trudeau government has spent millions on this idea.


There was a lot of talk on social media last year that governments around the world, in conjunction with the World Economic Forum, were pushing a diet of insects. CBC dismissed the idea as a conspiracy theory of the far right, Bloomberg did the same, as did National Public Radio in the United States.


Meanwhile, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation looked at where grants and contributions were going and found the Trudeau government has offered up $9.27 million to several companies to help them develop products. The largest contribution was $8.5 million to Aspire Food Group Ltd. through the federal government’s Agri-Innovate Program.

The stated goal of the contribution, which may or may not be paid back, is to support “the building of a commercial demonstration facility in London, Ont., to produce crickets for pet, human, biomedicine and agrochemical markets.”



Seems crickets are high in protein and, according to some, a more environmentally friendly way to get that vital component into our diets. According to Aspire, most of their cricket protein goes into pet foods, but they are looking at human consumption as well.

“Research indicates that one in five Americans have tried crickets and more than half of adults can be persuaded to consume them in their diet, a trend that continues to increase as more consumers seek healthier and environmentally superior proteins,” the company’s website says.

Some of the other companies that have received money from the federal government are already making products for human consumption using crickets. NAAK, based in Montreal, already makes cricket protein energy bars, but according to their agreement, uncovered by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, they will be branching out into more products.


“The next project is the development of a range of products cooked with cricket powder, such as steaks, sausages and falafels,” the agreement for $48,517 with the National Research Council says.

Prairie Cricket Farms of Manitoba has received $78,000 from the feds. They promote roast cricket snacks or cricket protein sprinkled on your cereal.

Other contracts went to firms in Bromont, Que., and Scarborough, while Gaia Protein of Calgary received $160,000 “to achieve commercialization of insect protein production.”

Your money, hard at work developing the next generation of cricket farmers.

Imagine governments trying to encourage insect consumption with the help of the WEF.

And does the WEF does have a role in this story? Klaus Schwab and his group have been pushing insect consumption for years. They have published several papers calling for more insect farming and consumption, calling it a solution to a growing population and a possible remedy for climate change.


Crickets have long been approved for human consumption in Canada and that is spreading to other countries. Companies are offering up products to those who want to eat crickets for protein, adding the ingredient to a number of items.

Just don’t count me in as one of the people who is going to be eating them.

Eating crickets sounds disgusting and not like something I’d try. Having our governments fund research into producing crickets for human consumptions sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory. Sadly, it’s true.

It’s also true that given inflation, especially for groceries, some people might be considering this option not out of choice, but necessity in the future.

Let them eat crickets, they said from Ottawa.

Trudeau in a deep hole after Weekend from Hell
Stench of death can be detected around Liberals

The Weekend from Hell™️.


All of us have had one, at one time or another. A fender-bender on the way to an important appointment. A flooded basement. A positive COVID test. Getting dumped by text.


Justin Trudeau’s Weekend from Hell™️ was different. His wasn’t private. It was right out in the open, observed by millions.

Such are the foibles of leaders of countries, and such are the foibles of Justin Trudeau these days. Try as he might, the Liberal leader can’t seem to catch a break.

As his Weekend from Hell™️ unfolded, it was almost (almost) possible to feel sorry for the guy. Almost.

Trudeau went to India for the G20. Based on the photographic evidence, nobody really wanted to talk to him or shake his hand. He looked miserable. And his plane was grounded there for nearly two days.


Meanwhile, back home, his main adversary, Pierre Poilievre, was having the best weekend of his political life. Ahead 14 points in the polls. Old rivals lining up behind his leadership. Party united. A multilingual, photogenic spouse charming everyone. And a picture-perfect convention in Quebec City.

And, to top it all off, Trudeau’s rust-bucket plane was wheezing back to Canada, and his timely arrival to a caucus retreat in London, Ont. was in doubt. Late for his own meeting. Ouch.

That’s not all. Over in the Liberal Party house organ, the Toronto Star, columnist Althia Raj was reporting that mutiny is brewing. While none of the quoted Liberal MPs were willing to go on the record, quite a few were prepared to dump on Trudeau anonymously.


Said one: “We don’t feel that we have a partner in the Prime Minister’s Office that is doing what it needs to be doing to help us at this time.”

Another: “This is a prime minister who never likes to even allow you to finish your sentence in national caucus … [If] you’re going to say something he’s not going to like, he always cuts you off.”

Said two different MPs: “People are really disillusioned.” Another: “Really, really, disillusioned.”

Finally, at least one said it was time for Trudeau to leave: “Do the right thing for himself and for the Liberal Party.” And go.

Like we said: it was Justin Trudeau’s Weekend from Hell™️.



Can he reverse it? Can he become competitive again?

As we all know, a week is a lifetime in politics. Conservatives have a well-documented history of shooting themselves in the foot. Trudeau is an excellent campaigner. And, as my colleague Brian Lilley likes to say, voters are fickle. They change their minds.

But right now, one thing is certain: A stench of death can be detected around Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.

And we suspect many more Weekends from Hell™️ are on the calendar.

A non-confidence vote or resignation? Whats it going to be?
Conservative Party of Canada has seen a jump in support under its new leader Pierre Poilievre, a populist career politician who took over the helm of the party in September of last year.

Abacus Data said last week that a recent national survey showed public perceptions of Poilievre were improving, while the Conservatives had 40 percent support among voters compared with 26 percent for the Liberals.

That is the Conservative Party’s largest lead over the Liberals since the 2015 election, the firm said. “The primary driver, in our view, is the negative impression people have of the Liberal government and Prime Minister Trudeau,” it added.

People are angry and it shows. Any more pushing will turn angry into pissed off.
The Soviet Union ultimately collapsed from internal contradictions related to a faltering ideology, limited free speech, economic mismanagement, deteriorating international influence and an inability to deliver on promises of a better life that were painfully obvious to all but were not, for fear of brutal reprisal, discussed publicly until near the very end. Sounds vaguely familiar.

Hero to zero.


That’s the transformation that takes place in politics, if you overstay your welcome. And it happens pretty fast, too.


That’s why they say a week is a long time in politics. Because it is.

One day you’re on the cover of Rolling Stone, being touted as the literal personification of wokefulness — and the next day you’re miserable and cooling your heels in India, because your plane broke down and no one wants to shake your hand anymore. Boom. From hero to zero, just like that.

Politics is weird in that way, and unforgiving. Brian Mulroney won two big majorities, and ended his tenure with the support of 12% of Canadians. Paul Martin was supposed to be a juggernaut, a Toronto Star columnist decreed, and then went from juggernaut to after-thought.


Stephen Harper was supposed to be Mr. Economics, started fretting about niqabs and “barbaric practices,” and thereby got clobbered by no less than hopey-wokey Justin Trudeau. (That barbaric practices nonsense, by the by, was cooked up by Pierre Poilievre’s brain trust. Hero to zero can happen to anyone, and does.)

And so on and so on. One minute everyone wants a selfie with you, applauding when you hijack a plane. And, the next minute, they’re looking at the tops of their shoes when you enter the room.

Trudeau has experienced metamorphosis in reverse. He started off as a beautiful and delicate butterfly, flitting from one social justice flower to the next. And now he’s turned into a caterpillar, chewing away at leaves and detritus in the dark. He is in profound danger of being stepped on by voters.


Fifteen points! Young people! Liberal strongholds! Those are the things he’s lost, in his devolution into something less than he was. Without them, he’s hooped.

How did it happen? Lots of reasons. Serial scandals, over-promise and underdeliver, circumstances and events. But, mainly, it’s because he’s become the party guest who won’t leave.

The hosts are sweeping the floors and putting away the silverware, but Justin still sits over in a corner, loudly recalling past glories and the time Melania Trump gave him a look you could pour on a stack of waffles. He won’t leave.

He doesn’t listen to many, ever, but he was indeed advised by a few smart folks to start inching towards the exits. One majority and two minorities is plenty, he’s been told, something about which to be proud. That’s a decade. As good as it gets.


But he demurred. He declined. He deferred. And, now, it feels like it is too late to install a fresh new Liberal face, and rescue the brand of the Liberal Party of Canada. Smart Liberals know that another victory is impossible. They just want to save the furniture, now.

Trudeau, the caterpillar who thinks he’s still a butterfly, doesn’t get it — or he doesn’t care.

This writer’s working theory is that — like many men — his father’s shadow looms large over Justin’s path through life. He wants to equal, or surpass, his father’s record. (It happens. Ask George W. Bush about it.)

Whatever the reason, he is just about out of time. If he doesn’t leave — and for the love of God, Justin, please leave — he’s done like dinner. He’s got to Christmas to rescue the party. Maybe.

Hero to zero. It’s a political cliché, sure.

But it’s also Justin Trudeau.

It dawned on me at some time yesterday. We live in a country where violent criminals benefit from the revolving door bail system while the leader of one of the most peaceful ie: non-violent/non-destructive protests this continent has seen in decades is being prosecuted like a motherfucker.

Let that sink in folks, this is Trudeau's Canada.

"This writer’s working theory is that — like many men — his father’s shadow looms large over Justin’s path through life. He wants to equal, or surpass, his father’s record."

But he did. He put Canada in much worse debt than his daddy did. He's got to have fucked over the First Nations more than his dad did, by now. And the cost of living in Canada is going up faster than Trudeau's wanga-roo at Trannie story time.

No, to know Justin is to despise Justin. His goal is to destroy Canada and turn it into HIS vision of what HE thinks Canada needs to be, the world's first "post-nation state".

I mean c'mon, the goof is almost everything the left loves to hate. He's a racist. He's a misogynist. He's a Quebec Nationalist. He's a wealthy trust-fund brat. He spends more time in the fucking air than Superman. He AND his minions don't just routinely lie right to our faces, they insult our intelligence on a near weekly basis.

But there is good news on the horizon. Younger voters it seems are turning away from the Liberals. They aren't even going to the NDP simply because the Dipshits have supported the disaster known as Trudeau. They are in fact turning to the Conservatives. I'll expand on that tomorrow sometime, if I remember this lol. It's 4:30 AM and I gotta hit the rack.

Its a split between the 2 genders (either you suck cock or you dont). Young men are overwhelmingly conservative and young women are left leaning but less likely to vote.

turdOWE has already surpassed his father. Both in damage to the country and debt. Quite possibly in hatred in the west as well.

Well as long as you don't protest against Trudope. We also have some of the highest housing costs in the world, driven in part by scrapped rent controls and Trudeau's utterly reckless immigration policies. Christ, the average rent of a 1bedroom apt in fucking Hamilton is now $1900/mo. Hamilton is a dump. We also rank #4 in the world for household debt to GDP. The problem is more and more of that debt is now "forced" debt.

Those stats don't tell the story of revolving door bail systems for violent offenders. Or the CONSTANT division that Trudeau loves creating among Canadians. Or the fact the Trudeau govt is little more than a kleptocracy. On top of that both the $13 million dollar man (Trudope) and the $4 million man (Jackmeat) want us to get all pissed off at Weston's/Loblaws because they have a 3.72% profit margin while ignoring the fact that Trudope's bullshit carbon tax gets added to EVERY step of food production and transport. In fact, in 2022 Loblaws' net profits were $215 million LESS than in 2021. But if you listen to the aforementioned 1%er assholes in Ottawa, Loblaws is basically engaging in "price gouging". And what's the asshole's proposed solution? Tax them extra and make grocery prices go even higher.
And ya know what? Lots of Romans were still living pretty good when Rome was in its rapid decline. Didn't mean things were looking good.
Also, there are un-tangibles that stats just can't define.
