Not all Heroes wear Capes

German firefighters are being trained to rescue men who have sex toy emergencies. Apparently, for the firefighters, it’s become a tonne of Teutonic trouble.

The new training is teaching them to cut off penis rings or to extract toys from, er, hard to reach places. The new initiative was launched after a slew of calls from kinkos in chaos.

That order capped a surreal 30-minute court appearance in which Rotondo didn't deny that his parents had given him multiple orders to leave their 408 Weatheridge Drive home. But Rotondo wasn't going to leave without a legal battle.

Greenwood tried to convince Rotondo to speak directly to his parents, Mark and Christina, while the judge waited. Rotondo refused, saying he'd made his legal arguments.

Ever wonder why Ontario is...

...drowning in debt...

Reminiscent of the privatization of Highway 407, the sale involves a massive transfer of wealth from the Government of Ontario, and ultimately all Ontarians, to the private sector. Within two days of Great Canadian’s financial disclosures of the deal’s terms its stock price jumped by 36 per cent, adding some $840-million of market value to the company. As evidenced by stock market reactions, the accepted bid was clearly below market value.

Continued poor-decision making by the Ontario Liberals, especially when it comes to protecting taxpayer dollars, only serves to fuel anti-government, anti-establishment views in the province.

Sources in the Somali community told Fox 9 it is an open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money.

In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers need to sign up low income families that qualify for child care assistance funding. Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.

Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.

Jordan Peterson for Prime Minister

Peterson is an apologist for a set of beliefs that we once took for granted but now require an articulate defense, such as: Free speech is an essential value; perfect equality inevitably conflicts with individual freedom; one should be cautious before attempting to reengineer social institutions that appear to be working; men and women are, in certain quantifiable respects, different.

He is promoted by Random House Canada as a bearer of timeless truths and denounced on Canadian public television as a borderline fascist.
The perfect antidote for Prime Minister "Sunny Ways."

Rinaldo Walcott, the Director of the Women & Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, has long argued that free speech is an ideal designed to uphold “white supremacy.”

"People cannot opt out of this," said CRTC spokeswoman Patricia Valladao. "There is a high importance that people -- want it or not -- receive these alerts."
Here's a few home truths...

Cellphone amber alerts are political virtue-signalling and have nothing to do with missing children. The last thing the government wants is citizens tackling random mothers & children in public. It's mostly about blasting out a "we care" message to the entire political constituency at once.

The real purpose of this system, however... is for use in anticipated mass casualty events, like the terrorist bombings and shootings we see happening in Europe. When that 9/11 type event inevitably happens in Canada, the Civil Defence wallahs need a way to control and damp down the panicked populace. Think about that.

There's another 200,000 votes...

...for Doug Ford...pander quee

"The board members of Ontario power utility Hydro One voted to boost compensation for their own part-time jobs to $185,000 a year, at a time when the company's share price was falling. The board of Hydro One is already under fire for sweetening the severance pay of its top executives."
Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne appointed all the current directors, who meet once a month, in 2015.
The document shows the board approved the following compensation increases:

$70,000 raise for the chair of the board (to $330,000).
$25,000 raise for regular board members (to $185,000).
So that's $15,400 taxpayer dollars per day for a regular board member. And $27,500 for the Chairman.

The TV report said Hamas had been spurring the violent protests, and telling Gazans who die in the violence that they will be guaranteed a place in paradise. It said women were prominent among the protesters.

It said Hamas leaders were seeking to grab control of even a small part of Israeli territory, even for a brief moment, in order to claim a symbolic victory and the start of a “return” en route to liberate Palestine.

Protesters on Sunday were heard chanting “Death to America.”

Few who left to join ISIS have been charged upon their return, an issue that has been raised repeatedly in the House of Commons, with the Conservatives accusing the Liberals of greeting returning ISIS members with “group-hug sessions.”

The best the RCMP can do is send an intervention team. The intervention teams can “engage with the returnee and the returnee’s family to open up dialogue with the individual and to help support the returnee’s disengagement from their radical ideology and past behavior.”

Unlike the United Kingdom, which has revoked the citizenship of ISIS fighters so they cannot return, Canadians who go abroad to commit terrorism have a “right to return,” according to a Briefing Note prepared for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.

The government estimates that about 190 Canadian extremists are currently active in terrorist groups overseas, mostly in Syria and Iraq. An additional 60 have returned, and police are bracing for another wave of returnees over the next one to three months.
