Difficult To Talk About, Important To Try

This is a difficult subject to talk about, because highlighting it could easily be viewed as hypocritical. In my defense, I’m not defending Trudeau because I want him elected, and I’m not attacking the Conservatives over this because I think they’re unfit to govern. I just think that using propaganda videos created by ISIS is not something Canadian political parties should ever do.

I regret even posting a link to this remarkably bad Conservative video

www. facebook.com/ cpcpcc/videos/10153435917054204/
“Conservative Party of Canada – Parti conservateur du Canada:

On the same day that ISIS releases yet another barbaric video, Justin Trudeau promises to stop bombing ISIS. He’s clearly just not ready for the serious job of Prime Minister.”

If the Conservatives really feel that Trudeau shouldn’t make such a promise, fine. It just seems hypocritical to use the concocted and cruel video of an enemy army, to attack your domestic political foe. It’s like saying, “Thanks ISIS for this great video we can use to show Trudeau isn’t fit to lead our country in battle against you.”

#C51 Is a Brazen Power Grab

Canadians are so trained to accept power grabs, that we didn’t fight sufficiently to stop it.

The police state usually pads up behind you on cat’s paws. But this time, Harper has stabbed his finger into everyone’s chest to give us a hearty shove. This is a blatant, brazen grab for the kind of power no leader in a democracy should seek — let alone have in perpetuity.

How can there be unfettered sharing of information between departments of government without massive and illegal privacy violations?

Here’s a typical response by a Harper supporter on Twitter:

C-51 says whatever CSIS, CSE, the RCMP and the federal government want it to say. It is not an anti-terror measure; it is a manifesto for a police state, conferring on it vast powers to spy on and control its citizens. This blather about being at war with ISIS is utter nonsense.

C-51 Stops a Veteran From Being a Liberal Candidate

I wondered why Peter MacKay’s Liberal challenger was quitting too, and it seems the reason was how Trudeau mishandled the C-51 “anti terrorism” vote by supporting the bad bill. Since MacKay is quitting too for other reasons, Central Nova will be a riding to watch again.

Out of context tweet, missing information:

“Free sex” – Inky Mark.

“I wonder if she gets paid.”

I wonder if she gets paid, to ask that.

In the same time frame, Krause received significant funding from the oil, gas and mining industries and has said 90 per cent of her income in 2012, 2013 and 2014 was drawn from speaking fees and honorariums funded by industry sources.

Krause said the “90 per cent” comment was out of context, because she had “zero” income aside from her speaking arrangements. Krause said she earned money by working part-time as a piano teacher, among other things. She said her two most recent speaking gigs were not paid.

I’m not sure Fonda needs the money as badly as Krause makes us out to believe that’s her motivation.

The Boom With the Bomb Train Boom

CBC is a funny beast now. Along with their story parroting what the latest Canadian Energy Research Initiative report says, is RBC/tarsands shill Amanda Lang staring at you from the sidebar. Also we learn about “Dollarama’s winning formula” of selling Chinese mass produced garbage to Canadians, a “retail success story”, and again with “Amanda Lang takes you inside the world of business.”

Back to the oil train story. Outpacing oil trains apparently are wheat and coal. Coal shouldn’t even be burned anymore, now that we know how deadly and damaging it is. The report makes no mention of the unsafe DOT-111 cars used to ship petroleum. It doesn’t mention climate change, instead calling it “climate concerns”.

Coal currently is the most commonly moved commodity across Canada, accounting for nearly a quarter of rail traffic in some parts of the country, but that number is likely to fall as coal falls out of use because of climate concerns.

Anyway, oil-by-rain shipments are not “set to boom”, they already have boomed (and exploded too), and will continue to according to the CETI report.
