Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre finds himself in a unique position. Having just declared Canada’s second largest metropolis a “sanctuary city,” he now finds himself an unlikely defender of a summer rodeo against animal rights activists who are distributing a petition to ban the event.

The animal rights activists, who have tried unsuccessfully for decades to shut down the world-famous Calgary Stampede, think they have found a potential victory in their Montreal campaign, where support for rodeos is not has enormous as it is in the Western province of Alberta.

TEPATEPEC, Mexico (AP) — For more than 100 years, most of what gets flushed down Mexico City's toilets has resurfaced two hours to the north in the rivers and reservoirs of the rural Mezquital Valley. A massive new water treatment plant is about to change this.

But rather than welcoming the prospect of cleaner water, angry farmers are demanding the government honor an 1895 presidential decree granting them the right to the capital's untreated sewage, which they see as fertilizer-rich, if foul, irrigation water.

A Tale of Two Bills

Assume for these purposes that all of the accusations in both cases are true.

For one Bill (O'Reilly), these are accusations of failed jokes, allegedly inappropriate looks, allegedly condescending remarks, and, in the most recent case that brought matters to a head, an invitation to a hotel room which was declined and not pursued further.

For the other Bill (Clinton), it is accusations of rape, blatantly improper sexual contact including with a young intern and a babysitter, numerous instances of forcible contact and groping, and attempted seduction.
And don't get me started on spawn of Hillary...
Chelsea Clinton, most recently lionized on the cover of Variety, is a 37-year-old multi-millionaire who has never uttered an interesting word about any subject at any time during the course of her life. Judging from the evidence of her public statements, she has never had an original thought — it isn’t clear that she has had a thought at all.


Is Justin Trudeau building another France?

After the mid-twentieth century, the French state built a vast stock — about 5 million units—of public housing, which now accounts for a sixth of the country’s households. Much of it is hideous-looking, but it’s all more or less affordable.

Its purpose has changed, however. It is now used primarily for billeting not native French workers, as once was the case, but immigrants and their descendants, millions of whom arrived from North Africa starting in the 1960s.

Public-housing inhabitants are almost never ethnically French; the prevailing culture there nowadays is often heavily, intimidatingly Muslim.
Equally concerning is what has happened to "free speech"... certainly a hot topic these days in North America...
In France, political correctness is more than a ridiculous set of opinions; it’s also—and primarily—a tool of government coercion. When Guilluy writes of the “criminalization of criticism of the dominant model,” he is not speaking metaphorically. France’s antiracist Pleven law, which can punish speech, passed in 1972.

In 1990, the Gayssot law criminalized denial or “minimization” of the Holocaust and repealed parts of France’s Law of July 29, 1881, on Freedom of the Press. Both laws are landmarks in Europe’s retreat from defending free speech. Suits against novelists, philosophers, and historians have proliferated.
Which brings us to an interesting question; "What will French Revolution 2.0 look like?"

I'm guessing that will likely be shaped, in the short term anyway, by next months election.

Toronto Police claim the accused, known as Master Raghav, advertised his services as an astrologer and psychic during February and March of this year.

TORONTO - Ontario’s cabinet minister in charge of government purse strings says the $4.5-million pay received by Hydro One’s CEO is “not part of the equation” of cutting electricity costs for consumers.

New filings show that CEO Mayo Schmidt was paid $4.5 million in 2016 — an $850,000 salary plus bonuses — and those top five executives were paid a total of about $11.7 million.

RCMP to start rounding up...

...farmers, deer hunters and target shoot... WAIT A MINUTE...

When it came to firearm injuries due to assault, immigrants and refugees were at much higher risk than their non-immigrant counterparts.

Refugee children and youth were 1.4 times more likely to be shot than Canadian-born residents of the same age. Firearm injuries due to violent assault tended to be clustered in low-income neighbourhoods in urban centres, where immigrant and refugee children and youth often live when they arrive in Canada.
So, it's the low income neighbourhoods with all the nasty guns? My last handgun purchase was $1200.00. I guess ol' Laquan et al must've hit the 649. Of course, minors can't purchase guns, so, even assuming a clean criminal record, these "Refugee children and youth" have apparently found some sort of extra-legal firearms pipeline.

Note that espite the urban, immigrant statistic cited here, the CBC chose to highlight a gun death in Grande Cache, Alberta.

The article also, curiously enough, neglects to say who is doing all the shooting or what gun club they belong to.

A last little nugget of media wisdom...
"Parents who decide to keep a gun in the home should be counselled to store firearms unloaded, with a trigger lock or in a locked container, and separate from ammunition."

The second investigation, which led to Meredith having to sit as an Independent upon ejection from the Conservative caucus, came into play after the Toronto Star reported on an inappropriate affair he had with an 18-year-old woman that began when she was 16.

The third investigation, which attracted no publicity, involves Meredith allegedly taking along a partner in a construction consulting business he co-owns, DMSS Global Consultant Inc., as part of a delegation in a 2015 trip to Trinidad and Tobago to meet with the island nation’s prime minister and other parliamentarians.

Seems pretty clear to me.
