The Paris Hilton...

...of Canadian politics...

“Please finish the following sentence: If elected, my first full day as prime minster I would…”

The transcript on the paper’s website writes “Pause” before Trudeau’s response. That was exceedingly generous. I would have put “Epic pause.”

It lasts around nine seconds. Which on video – as anyone with media training knows – feels like pretty much an hour. In that time Trudeau widens his eyes. Shrugs. Gives a coy smile. Exhales.
The Crown Prince did his best, but was, as usual, less than impressive.
A couple of problems here. Can anyone discern any actual content in this answer? Aside from the fact that he intends to do something like phone up the mayor of Kingston and promise he won’t swear at him or something like that.

It used to be called "grooming"

Call me old-fashioned, but isn't teaching pre-teens the "right way" to give sexual consent still a violation of the Canadian criminal code? This seems like the sort of thing you'd find in the NAMBLA charter...
no more statuatory rapeNever mind teenagers... apparently learning about consent starts in JK...

“Starting right in the primary and junior grades, kids will be learning listening skills and helping each other to pay attention to facial expressions and what they mean and whether somebody is positive or negative or happy or sad.”
Facial expressions? You go with the guy with the happiest face? That's the solution here?
Wynne also said children should “start to learn those signals from the time they enter school."
Hang on, isn't this gonna lower the age of consent to 5 years old?

Next up... Ontario Liberals hiring homeless rubbies to teach kids how to hold their liquor.

What could possibly go wrong?

Didn't Justin's daddy dearest increase the deficit tenfold over his illustrious reign?

Liberal finance critic Scott Brison hinted at the party’s thinking when he told Mr. Berthiaume much of the work could be done “off the government balance sheet” by tapping funds from pension plans, including the Canada Pension Plan, into which all working Canadians contribute.
Feelin' lucky, punk?

FROM THE COMMENTS: Justin won't need CPP

With his his champagne tastes, it's a good thing Justin will have his 7 times better than private industry pension...
Before being elected a Liberal MP, Trudeau chaired the charitable youth group Katimavik, which was started by his late father's Liberal government.

The Harper government recently announced that it would stop funding Katimavik, citing high per-person costs for its youth-exchange program. Receipts for a Katimavik retreat at the posh 4 Diamond Loews Concorde hotel in Quebec City show that Trudeau billed double the rate of other Katimavik members.
The Crown Prince likes his creature comforts... fine brandies, sushi and premium Grey Goose vodka.

Even before being elected, Justin fed off the government teat.


Toronto Homicide Squad rounding up...

...local farmers, duck hunters & target shooters as we speak...all the bad guys

Toronto Police say they responded to a shooting call on Flemington Rd., northwest of Lawrence Ave. W. and Allen Rd., around 9 p.m.

Officers arrived on the residential street and found a male suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.
Not sure exactly how the "professional" journalist came to the conclusion that the decedent was "suffering", well... anything.
The shooting victim was pronounced dead at the scene. His name and age have not yet been released.

No further details were immediately available.
Is this actually news? The absolute absence of detail puts it more in the category of corner store gossip. No wonder the dead tree media is dying.

The visit comes in the wake of the first state sanctioned beheading under the new King – a brutal practice that was carried out unabated under the reign of Abdullah, for crimes including ‘political dissent’.

While Obama and Kerry make nice with a regime which has a disgusting human rights record, they are skipping the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, to be attended by almost all European heads of state.
Yeah, dude... party like it's 1026.


Gotta have priorities... right?

Barack Obama ducked the Paris memorial and shunned the Israeli Prime Minister... but he'll always make time for a fellow traveller...this is what obama respectsAnd it's not just the President...

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hailed Abdullah as “a man of wisdom and vision” and a “revered leader.”
Apparently, Kerry has never met an oligarch he didn't revere. A little digging reveals a harsher truth...women are cattle, right?Let's ask someone who ought to know.
Abdullah, like other Saudi royals, had numerous wives — at least seven, and perhaps as many as 30. One of these wives, Alanoud Al-Fayez, claims her four daughters’ supposed incarceration, which has gone on for some 13 years, was both a mark of Abdullah’s vindictive streak and intolerance of his daughters’ modern, independent upbringing. She says the four have been locked away for more than a decade, subject to abuse and deprivation.
Even that won't stop Barack Obama from rushing to the Muslim Holy Land to pay his respects.

Maybe he can share a prayer rug with Justin Trudeau.

Really, that's the culpable party here... the "dizzy white people" in Florida? Were these nefarious unstable caucasians relentlessly cold-calling random folk here in Brantford, Ontario? That seems unlikely. Could it be that Makayla's parents sought them out? Perish the thought.

What about the hundreds of members of the “Makayla Defence Force” who were prepared to "physically intervene" to prevent actual medical treatment? I thought assisting a suicide was a criminal offense in Canada.

A couple of questions... if Jesus had already zapped the cancer, why the wheatgrass enemas... (more to the point, is Canadian wheatgrass so sub-par that you wouldn't consider funnelling it up your nether parts?) I'm also curious whether the Canadian healthcare system ponied up for this cross border bowel cleansing. As for aboriginal rights, will there now be a Royal Commission on shaman based healthcare?

Where stereotypes come from

Although it's possible that being killed for your "bling" is more of a caricature...

TORONTO - Mohammed and a friend — a man wearing a “tremendous amount of expensive gold jewelry” — visited the restroom where they were attacked by three men who tried to snatch the friend’s chains, homicide Det.-Sgt. Gary Giroux said about a week after the slaying. “A violent struggle ensued” and Mohammed helped his friend break free from his assailants, Giroux said.

The two pals headed to the front of the restaurant, which was filled with upwards of 60 patrons at the time. The attackers followed, gunfire erupted and Mohammed was killed.

Marcus Gibson, 22, and Ceyon Carrington, 28, both of Toronto, are now each charged with first-degree murder and other related offences, police said.
Which raises the question... is it racism... IF IT'S FACTUAL?
Blacks are about 14% of US population; but young black men are about 13% of the total black population. So, 13 X 14 = 1.82, less than 2% of our population commits more than half of all American gun murders.
If this math is correct it is truly mind-boggling.

Saudi officials don’t like to talk about it, but experts who closely follow developments inside the kingdom say ISIS enjoys growing support among ordinary Saudis, who see the group as the true champion of embattled Sunnis in their sectarian struggles against the Shiite-led governments in Iran and elsewhere.

Al Sharpton loses his mind...

...about the racist Academy Awards...

“The lack of diversity in today’s Oscar nominations is appalling ... With all of the talent in Selma and other Black movies this year, it is hard to believe that we have less diversity in the nominations today than in recent history."
I dunno Al. Could there possibly be some other reason Selma didn't get the gold ring? liar, liarShould this movie be allowed to "Tawana Brawley" its way to the top? If race hustler Al Sharpton is on one side of an issue, surely any reasonable person should be planted firmly on the other.

Is it just possible that members of the Academy objected to a fabricated fairy tale posing as an historical document?
There was no shortage of real white villains in the Selma controversy, but LBJ was not one of them. This portrayal depends upon a complete misrepresentation not only of the facts, but also of specific conversations that King and Johnson had during this period.

Selma shows LBJ in this period not only refusing to meet any of King’s demands, but also enlisting J. Edgar Hoover to try to discredit and destroy King. Hoover had in fact taken these steps months before, and LBJ had been appalled by them.

Like John and Robert Kennedy before him, he was terrified that Hoover would successfully discredit King and set back civil rights for years.
And what about actual facts?
"In fact, Selma was LBJ's idea, he considered the Voting Rights Act his greatest legislative achievement, he viewed King as an essential partner in getting it enacted - and he didn't use the FBI to disparage him," Califano writes in an opinion piece for The Washington Post.

He says the movie is so far off the mark that it should be "ruled out this Christmas and during the ensuring awards season".

Mark K Updegrove, an author, historian and the director of the LBJ Presidential Library, agrees.

Writing for Politico, Updegrove says films based on true events often massage the truth in order to create a better narrative, but historians should step in when that narrative doesn't represent the spirit of what actually happened.

President Obama’s decision not to attend yesterday’s Unity Rally in Paris in response to the terrorist horrors of this past week may register as his most disturbing, and profoundly harmful, public relations mishap to date.
Republicans were equally outraged...
The absence is symbolic of the lack of American leadership on the world stage, and it is dangerous. The attack on Paris, just like previous assaults on Israel and other allies, is an attack on our shared values. And, we are stronger when we stand together, as French President François Hollande said, for “liberty, equality, and fraternity.”
It could have been worse... at least this time, Obama's handlers kept him off the golf course.

He also called the Paris terrorist attacks “un complot,” or conspiracy, and launched into a lengthy explanation of the “magical Jews” behind it. They were not ordinary Jews, he said, but a “hybrid race of shape shifters” who have extraordinary abilities.
Ignorant. Racist. Criminal.

Can France recover from this situation? It sure doesn't sound like it.

UPDATE: Was it a deliberate snub?
From nearly the beginning of the president's term, the Whitehouse made clear it did not want to refer to Islamic jihad as either Islamic or jihad. As the world watched images of black-clad, AK-47-wielding terrorists killing Parisians, Obama proposed to meet the threat with social service providers.
