Kathleen Wynne's "dirty business"

Ontario taxpayers will soon be part-owners of one of the biggest coal-fired power plants in America west of the Mississippi River, making money off pollution in the U.S. Northwest that would be illegal to emit at home.

What they do at Colstrip would be against the law in Ontario. In 2015, after closing the last of this province’s coal plants by government order, the Liberals passed a law outlawing them.
Do what I say... not what I do.

Eyewitness testimony

A jury has convicted a western Michigan woman of first-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband in a crime apparently witnessed by the man’s pet parrot.

After the slaying, the pet parrot, Bud, constantly repeated “don’t f@cking shoot” in Martin Duram’s voice.

Indefensible

affirmative action

"The silence from the Minneapolis Police Federation in the shooting death of Justine Damond is in sharp contrast to other controversial cases.

Privately, sources are telling us that this can only mean one thing: that the shooting death of Justine Damond by a Minneapolis officer is even being questioned by his fellow officers."
But, wait... there's more...
"Noor, who joined the Minneapolis Police in March 2015, has reportedly had three complaints made against him in two years - including a lawsuit. Two are from 2017 and one from 2016 is closed and marked 'not to be made public'."
**********

UPDATE: Noor family claiming "victimhood"
The family of Damond’s killer declared his innocence, saying Mohammed Noor had mistakenly shot her dead.

“We feel so bad about this, we are traumatised ourselves. It’s so unfortunate.”

A story you're not gonna see...

...anytime soon on the CBC...affirmative action

Justine's loved ones said she called 911 after hearing what she thought was a sexual assault in the alley. Moments later, a responding officer, Mohamed Noor, shot and killed her from inside his squad car.

WCCO also learned that when she approached the squad car, Officer Noor, the first Somali-American officer to work in Minneapolis’ 5th precinct reached across his partner in the driver’s seat, then shot and killed Damond
.
Witness the perils of affirmative action...
Thirty year old Noor had joined the department in March 2015. Before that, he worked in property management.

A report via CBS cited Officer Mohammed Noor’s attorney saying the policeman’s weapon discharging multiple gunfire led to the death of the woman.

Both officers had body cameras but they weren’t turned on.
I'm guessing Black Lives Matter Minnesota was not available for comment.

Minneapolis Somali community braces for backlash
One prominent Somali BLM activist is quoted as suddenly saying, "I hope the conversation will focus on police reform, not racial stereotypes."

You mean, like evil white cops murdering totally blameless black people? Un-fucking-believable.

“Since when did it become a crime to be a teenager, I ask you?”
Of course, there were a few small differences.

Yatim wasn't the 911 caller. He was the perp.
Yatim had a knife, which he swung at a woman.
Yatim refused to put down the knife and advanced towards cops.
The cop who shot Yatim wasn't black.

All the difference in the world.

UPDATE2: Noor partner gives statement...

"Officers Were 'Startled’ By Noise'"
Officer Harrity's lawyer later stated that Harrity & Noor were "concerned about a possible ambush."

Yeah... ambushed by a slight, blonde, pyjama clad yoga teacher. You really wanna die on that hill, Officer Harrity?

Meanwhile, Officer Noor, who has been the subject of three complaints since being hired in 2015, has refused to talk to investigators.

According to WJZ, murders occur so frequently in Baltimore that the number of murders in the city is higher than the number in Philadelphia, even though Philadelphia “has two and a half times the population.” Moreover, Baltimore sees more murders than New York City, although NYC “is almost 14 times larger.”

But the real giveaway on the level of violence in Baltimore is the report that the city’s murder rate “more than doubles Chicago’s.”


Millions for Terrorists

So, when will Justin Trudeau and Kathleen Wynne start building genderless universities, hospitals and prisons?gender blender

In May, the Ontario provincial government announced plans to begin issuing gender-neutral birth certificates. Ontario also allows residents to opt for an X, rather than an M or F on their drivers’ licenses, and has removed gender information from health care cards entirely.

Most Canadians are opposed to the idea of allowing residents of their own province to opt for something other than an “M” or an “F” on their birth certificates, and roughly half say allowing gender-neutral identification of all types for those who want it is a “bad thing”.
I suspect that that the people most supportive of this genderless nonsense are millennials who grew up on Star Wars movies and are gushingly enthusiastic about beings who more closely resemble alien lifeforms than the female facsimile they were aiming for.
Political affiliation is also related to opinions on genderless birth certificates. Those who voted for the Conservative Party of Canada in the 2015 federal election are far more likely than other Canadians to oppose the plan. Almost four-in-five (77%) oppose their province issuing gender-neutral birth certificates.

Justin Trudeau paid the "Jizya"...

“The Harper government refused to repatriate Mr. Khadr or otherwise resolve the matter. They could have, but they didn’t,” Goodale declared.

Except Goodale omitted that in so doing, Harper was merely continuing the policy of the Jean Chretien/Paul Martin Liberal governments from 2002 until they lost power in 2006.

The Liberals made no effort to repatriate Khadr.
And that, my friends, is the truth that "Roaring Ralph" chooses not to tell you...
"Khadr’s civil suit was heavily focused on the unconstitutional conduct of the Liberal government in the 2002-2003 Chr├ętien-Martin period. Liberal heavyweights and officials from that epoch were included in formulating the Khadr settlement."
Yeah, I'm shocked.

CORNWALL, Ont. - An eastern Ontario city is facing a human rights complaint over its policy prohibiting women and girls 10 and older from being topless in municipal pools.

The mayor says the woman who launched the gender discrimination complaint doesn't live in Cornwall or the surrounding region.

The complaint also targets an eastern Ontario water park and seven hotel companies.
