Perhaps dumpster diving for "star" candidates does have a downside.

TORONTO — Conservative defector Eve Adams failed on Sunday in her bid to run as a Liberal candidate in the looming federal election.

The sitting member of Parliament, welcomed personally into the fold by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, was handily beaten for the party’s nomination in the Toronto riding of Eglinton-Lawrence by lawyer Marco Mendicino.
I guess Justin is so used to living on the dark side he couldn't discern Ms. Adam's deeply flawed character. He was able to ignore both the car wash incident and the sign-stealing mess.

Truth is, even Steffi Mouthmarbles would have stepped around this political punji pit.
At a guess, a search of Ms. Adams’s soul could be conducted in the course of your average smoke break, if not between cigarettes. Yet Mr. Trudeau professed to be delighted with his new recruit, as untroubled by her serial loyalties as by the voluminous baggage she brings.
I can't wait to see what Eve Adams, neophyte Green Party candidate has to say about Pierre Lite.

BIG SOCIALISM: They'd like to buy...

Neither Trudeau nor Mulcair were willing to address one of the thornier of current native issues: the insistence by the Mohawk community of Kahnawake, near Montreal, that non-natives who marry Mohawks be driven from the reserve.
Apparently, Tommy Trotsky and the Ghost of Pierre just wanna rock like it's 1939...
Mulcair simply dodged the question, twice, while Trudeau replied: “We need to make sure that we’re working together so that situations like this don’t come up and cause the friction and uncertainty that far too many people are living right now.”

Victimhood Inc.

Yet again... nuclear level social fallout from the "soft bigotry of low expectations"...

Twenty-five years later, I expected to find a feel-good story of progress and success in Kanesatake. Instead I found a community struggling with poverty, lawlessness and bitterness.

Ottawa says it spent $35-million to buy 177 properties in the area. Locals claim that members of the band simply grabbed houses at random. They live there with no certificates of possession and they pay no rent.
No wonder Canada's aboriginal hierarchy live in fear of federal audits. But wait, it gets better...
The band council discourages members from voting in provincial or federal elections. Its economy is driven by cigarette and alcohol sales, and gambling operations outside governments deem illegal but have been powerless to stop.
Honestly, this sounds less like an intentional community than an off-Broadway production of Grand Theft Auto V...
A community survey found the richest six per cent of the population made as much money as the bottom 50 per cent. And because taxation is a dirty word among First Nations, there is no mechanism to redistribute the wealth to ensure the entire community benefits.
And what's a decaying, dystopian criminal enterprise without an underclass to look down on...
Its membership law forces residents to leave the reserve if they marry non-natives — the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms be damned.
Forget about the Charter here, this is cultural suicide.

Look, not my business, folks... but you might wanna ask the Hapsburgs about the end product of hundreds of years of inbreeding within a statistically limited gene pool. I will say, there are solid scientific reasons you don't continually marry your first cousins over hundreds of years. Hell, maybe David Suzuki could explain it better.

Of course, the race hustlers blame all the resultant misery on residential schools.

If that is so, why aren't the Japanese Canadian (interned during WWII) and Chinese Canadian (disposable industrial fodder for the railroad consortiums) communities currently mired in wretched drug & alcohol soaked ghettoes pursuing dead end criminal careers?

Dear Toronto Star...

That's a pretty bold statement... especially in light of the fact that you then, professionally & journalistically, choose not to identify the cough, cough... "community" in question.

A trend known as “community guns” accounts in part for the level of gun violence in the city.
Of course, they're not shy about the "sky is falling" lede...
The latest crime numbers from Toronto police show Ross’ death is part of a larger spike in gun violence citywide. Shooting events are up 34 per cent, up from 92 to 122, over this time last year, and shooting victims are up 78 per cent.
Ah, shootings "citywide."

If a government bureaucrat went out...

...and banned hoodies... there would be bloody rioting in the streets of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

So how can the RCMP, without any justification, turn this .22 calibre rifle into a prohibited weapon?

Don't take my word for it. Walk up to any cop and ask them if they'd be more worried about facing a nutjob with a .22 calibre Blaze 47 or virtually ANY non-prohibited, commercially available 30 calibre deer rifle that can currently be bought at Canadian Tire.

This firearm has been banned, not for any legitimate reason, but because Canada's national police force thinks it looks "dangerous."

guns kill people like pencils write poetry

You’d be forgiven for assuming that the rifles were fundamentally different in some way; that the Blaze-47 was somehow more deadly or more easily concealed than the standard Blaze. But it isn’t. It’s the same unremarkable .22-calibre plinking gun, virtually identical in all technical aspects to the unrestricted Blaze. The Blaze-47, however, comes with hand grips and shoulder stocks that give it a superficial similarity to the AK-47 rifle made famous by the bad guys in ’80s action movies.
Think about all the things you personally dislike. Should you have the power to ban them from "polite" society? Yet, you're willing to bestow that power on some faceless pencil-pushing functionary at the RCMP?

Ever been to Scarborough? Think of those ubiquitous chopped, lowered Civics & Camrys sporting unpacked mufflers and fibreglas whaletails you see at every second intersection.

Confiscating fake racing cars from all those Vin Diesel wannabes would invariably save more lives than banning firearms based solely on their grips and stocks. Best of all, with this RCMP precedent, we don't need to rely on any expensive, time consuming legislation... we'll just base it on whether some civil servant at the Ministry of Transportation doesn't like the looks (or sound) of any particular car. Hells bells, there's some ugly ass lifted monster tucks that spoil the ambiance of the picture postcard suburbs... let's put them on the list too. While we're at it, maybe we could start to dictate what colours people can paint their houses.

You think I'm being silly? Just think about the precedent here. I'm not saying the elected government doesn't have the right to legislate on firearms. Think about what is happening here. The Blaze 47 breaks no laws or even technicalities. The same gun, with a different stock and fore-end is completely legal in Canada.

If you let this happen you're ceding power to the civil service to capriciously shape your lives. That's wrong.

It's all (culturally) relative... right?

Perhaps cops aren't the only people who should be wearing those new-fangled body cameras...

As the adolescent girl underwent gynecological surgery at a western Canadian hospital, a doctor stood by to perform an unusual function.

The physician was there, according to a source familiar with the incident, to sign a certificate verifying she remained a virgin — and was still marriageable in her immigrant community.
Wow... where to start?

Perhaps, unlike the rest of Canada, this "western Canadian hospital" has such a surplus of qualified doctors they can afford to assign the overflow to "virginity patrol" and "ceremonial fire" related duties.

More to the point though... what culture or country has such an ongoing issue with presumably qualified surgeons raping anesthetized adolescent girls during medical procedures, that they have to assign a co-surgeon to make sure everybody (does the rest of the surgical team participate, or do they just watch) keeps their dick in their scrubs?
