When we speak of Islam, as opposed to Muslims, we are not speaking about a mere religious belief system. We are talking about a competing civilization — that is very much how Islam self-identifies.

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."
Which, as any legitimate firearms owner knows... IS ALREADY THE FREAKIN' LAW OF THE LAND.

FWIW, Mrs Neo heard about this on CBC radio... which surprising no one, vilified firearms ownership and totally left out the, cough, cough... "cultural component."

Pierre-lite was pretty quick to pull the trigger on Mr Tootoo when he went (admittedly not a minor) a huntin'.

RELATED: But wait... there's more...
As written here at January’s end, Senate ethics officer Lyse Ricard has been investigating the Pentecostal preacher, who boasts of being the first Jamaican-born senator in Canadian history on, not one, not two, but three alleged ethics breaches.

The first investigation began back in 2015 when high staff turnover in Meredith’s Senate office, noticed even by then Senate Speaker Pierre Claude Nolin, brought on allegations of workplace bullying and harassment.

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.
No wonder Justin is scurrying away into the shadows on this one.

UPDATE: Let's ask the girl...
According to the young woman, who is now 18, the relationship began soon after she turned 16. She met Meredith at a church event in Ottawa.

She said it began with sexually explicit chats over Skype and Viber in which Meredith asked her to remove her top and underwear. She said he then masturbated on camera.

What is Canada’s age of consent?

The age of consent for sexual activity is 16 years. It was raised from 14 years on May 1, 2008 by the Tackling Violent Crime Act.

However, the age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity "exploits" the young person when it involves prostitution, pornography or occurs in a relationship of authority, trust or dependency (e.g., with a teacher, coach or babysitter).
Seems pretty clear to me.


Toronto the (not so) Good

In the days before the police radios went digital, we could hear the calls and respond to them with a photographer. Now we rely either on word of mouth, the sound of a siren and also tweets from the Toronto Police on major calls.

It means media rarely can get to a scene while it’s still active. But it also means the public on their news shows don’t see as much crime scene action as they once did.

It’s creating a bit of a fallacy that there may not be as much violent crime as there clearly is.
