MOHAWKISTAN

Screw the Supreme Court of Canada... we're gonna go with Aboriginal Justice...

In 2008, the Brants and Miracle were ordered to return control of the land -- on which sits Miracle's Mohawk Liquidation Centre -- to the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte.

"What is it they say, possession is 99 per cent of the law?"
Well actually... I think that's the "Mugabe Doctrine"... in Canada, most of us actually try to abide by a little thing called the Criminal Code.

What this Intelligencer puff-piece fails to report is that this whole transaction was a scam from the get-go...
"Though they did not purchase or pay for the lands, they did "BORROW" hundreds of thousands of dollars from Ohwistha - an Aboriginal finance company that administered development loans for native businesses - and from Industry Canada to help them construct buildings there."

"None of these funds were repaid."
Small point of clarification here... it's only "borrowing" if you actually make an effort to pay the loan back.

And where exactly does an aboriginal finance company get this kind of valuta? I'm guessing it's part of the 12 billion dollars Canadian taxpayers shell out to prop up First Nations communities every year.

And finally... guess who's up to his eyebrows in this slick little shell-game?

...if this thing tanks... do we get our 7 billion dollars back?

-- QUEENS PARK -- Hudak warned that the agreement, which McGuinty will unveil Thursday at The Exchange Tower, could end up being "a massive multibillion-dollar giveaway to a foreign-based conglomerate without even the most basic of public reviews."

"At its core, it is a preferential, sole-sourced deal that is likely in violation of Ontario's procurement rules."
But of course... that's why we call him Premier McSlippery.

Yeah... let's invest here...
In the 1970s, nearly 600 Canadian weather stations fed surface temperature readings into a global database assembled by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Today, NOAA only collects data from 35 stations across Canada.

Only one station -- at Eureka on Ellesmere Island -- is now used by NOAA as a temperature gauge for all Canadian territory above the Arctic Circle.

Mr. D'Aleo and Mr. Smith say NOAA and GISS also ignore data from numerous weather stations in other parts of the world, including Russia, the U.S. and China.

Neither agency responded to a request for comment Wednesday from Canwest News Service.
Paging Al Gore.


Soften the Rules?

We think we must widen, for the Haiti crisis, the definition of family. So that Haitian families can bring in brothers, sisters, nephews. We must soften the rules for humanitarian reasons,” Mr. Ignatieff told reporters after a caucus meeting Wednesday.
Every day, somewhere in the world... there is a disaster... natural or otherwise.

Think of the misery in Darfur... or most parts of Africa for that matter. There are the rural parts of India. South America abounds with homeless street kids.

There have been... and will continue to be frequent humanitarian disasters worldwide.

Funny how Michael Ignatieff just happens to really, really need one... right now.

"Another suspect in the so-called “Toronto 18” case has pleaded guilty to terrorism offences Wednesday – and will released from prison as early as Thursday."
Well, cheer up... it could have been worse...
"Convicted terrorist Parminder Singh Saini will not be allowed to practice law in Ontario."

Oh yeah... the headline?

Sorry guys, call me wacky... your idea of "generally peaceful" is obviously a little different than my own.

The Youth Advocates Program represents the final stage of Alinskyism: its co-optation by the government-funded social-services industry.

Using a profile of past shooting victims that includes such factors as school truancy rates and disciplinary records, he has identified several hundred teens as having a greater than 20 percent chance of getting shot over the next two years.

The program will assign the 300 or so potential victims their own “advocates,” who will intercede on their behalf with government agencies and provide them with case management and counseling.
Good grief.

You're away for 34 years... that's what happens.

But what about "proroguing Parliament" you ask?

"We are in the 17th Parliament since 1958. In that time, there have been 40 sessions of Parliament – about one session per year, or two to three per Parliament."

"That means there have been 23 prorogations of Parliament in my lifetime."

While Mr. Ignatieff was happy to criticize Mr. Harper, his new team and their approach to handling the economy, he would not say how he would slay the deficit should the Liberals form government.

Instead, he said it was Mr. Harper’s $56-billion shortfall and therefore it was his problem.
And they keep telling us Iggy is "the smart one."


But of course...

...10 million destitute, illiterate, starving people spread over 10,000 square miles... who wouldn't be itching to invade?

France accused the US of "occupying" Haiti on Monday as thousands of American troops flooded into the country to take charge of aid efforts and security.

The French minister in charge of humanitarian relief called on the UN to "clarify" the American role amid claims the military build up was hampering aid efforts.
Of course, the real lesson here is... never get in between a Frenchman & the emergency exit.

How hungry would YOU have to be... to loot & burn down your own neighbourhood?
"The population was throwing stones at us to stop us from preventing the looting," said Gabriel Diallo, a United Nations officer from Guinea. "They said we can't stop them from looting the food because they were hungry."

The looters then burned down the store, sending a black cloud into the air that added one more dystopian element to the scene.
So what's the deal here... did somebody actually say to themselves... "How can we possibly make this 'hell on earth' worse?"

"At some point, Canada will have to grow up and understand that terrorists are real-life mass murderers not deserving of all the offender 'rights' that are afforded run of the mill criminals."

"Pass a law that requires a mandatory life sentence, (as in the rest of your life) for plotting or carrying out a terrorist attack. That's probably the best we can hope for since the public is too squeamish to sanction execution."

More Bang for your Tourist Buck

How long you figure it'll be before somebody comes away with a sucking chest wound?

-- LOS ANGELES -- Alfred Lomas, 45, a former gang member and the creator of the tour ($65, lunch included), said this drive-by was about educating people on city life, while turning any profits into microloans and other initiatives aimed at providing gang members jobs.

But aside from its unusual logistical challenges — the liability waiver describes the tour as “inherently dangerous” and warns of the risk of death — the venture has also generated debate about its appropriateness.

200 years of "freedom"

The real job here is rescuing Haiti from itself...

"Haitian governments plead that the country is too poor to provide such services. There is some truth to this claim. However, millions and millions of dollars donated by foreign governments and charitable groups for infrastructure projects have been stolen by government officials. Cheating and corruption in dealing with these funds are widespread."

"Lastly, the economy is run for the benefit of the rich elite. There are too few just taxes to provide the needed income for the basic infrastructure which makes a decent life possible."
Relief efforts... meet reality.

There is now evidence of crooks capitalizing on the generosity of people seeking to help quake-stunned Haiti -- spam e-mails that lead people to think they're donating to the British Red Cross, among other credible sounding organizations.
And there's a Canadian connection...
Symantec says the e-mail actually originated from a Canadian university Web mail server. The e-mail address used to send the message doesn't match the address where the donor is expected to send information.

In the first 36 hours after the tragedy, ABC News found that 64 new Web site URLs that seem connected to Haiti Earthquake relief had been registered.
