She confessed that she had never thought about it that way, that the media makes the news so people will watch it instead of CSI re-runs. She is young and innocent, but capable of learning.

Killing Ontario...

...one Liberal budget at a a time...fool me once...

The Liberals accumulated debt for this year is projected at $311.9 billion, almost 125% higher than the $138.8 billion debt the Liberals inherited from the Progressive Conservatives when they came to power in 2003.

Interest still has to be paid on that $311.9 billion by taxpayers, at a rate of almost $1 billion a month, or $11.6 billion annually.

If interest on debt — which doesn’t reduce the principal — was a government department, it would be the fourth largest after health, education and community services.

No biggie, say Justin's Liberal minions

In an interview with CBC Radio's The House, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said the flow of migrants crossing illegally into Canada has not reached a crisis level that would demand significant policy change. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau echoed Hussen's reassurances during a scrum with reporters at an event near Ottawa on Friday

In the month of January, the RCMP intercepted 245 asylum claimants illegally crossing into Canada from the United States near Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Que.

This week, the number had grown to hundreds of migrants a day, a flow that is anticipated to increase. The flow of asylum seekers crossing into Quebec has been largely driven by the approximately 50,000 Haitian migrants living in the United States who believe they could be deported by January.
