Trudeau: No, we won’t be stopping illegal border crossings. Why do you ask?

The other day we looked at a somewhat amusing story of people illegally crossing the border from the United States into Canada. The numbers remain only a tiny trickle compared to the flow of illegal aliens coming into the United States across our southern border, but the trend should still be worrying for Canadians. Or at least so you would think.

Decades of dumping raw sewage is killing Victoria's ocean floor, diver claims

A commercial diver is claiming that decades of dumping raw sewage off Victoria's coast is slowly killing its surrounding ocean beds.

Allan Crow, a fisherman, commercial diver and member of the Victoria Sewage Treatment Alliance, has been diving in these waters for 35 years.

"I've observed over a long period of time ... subtle changes. It has escalated for sure in the last 10-15 years."

Crow claims these changes are a result of the decades-long practice of raw sewage from Victoria and the surrounding area being dumped directly into the ocean.

Trudeau Gives Preference to Islam over all other Religions in Canada
 

 

 

A headline that is a total lie and pure hate crap. Jake spreading his poison once again.

 

The author of this article's viewpoint is best summarized here:

 

This is a dangerous piece of proposed legislation.

In my opinion, a law that specifically condemns Islamophobia violates the spirit and substance of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms which are embedded in our Canadian constitution.

 

In other words, the right to publicly express your hatred of others based on race or religion (no matter what the consequences).

 

 

The election of Donald Trump has emboldened bigots to crawl out from underneath rocks and openly take stands of this nature to fight a proposed legislation designed to protect a minority. What miserable times we live in.

 

Typical cowardly Jake - expressing his own prejudice while hiding behind the words of others.

 

FOR GOD'S SAKE, WE JUST HAD THE MURDER OF SIX MUSLIMS IN A QUEBEC CITY MOSQUE BY A MAN WHO WOULD APPLAUD THIS ARTICLE!

 

 

"A society will be judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members"

Trudeau Tells Europeans: Trump ‘Gets Things Done’

Sounding like a voice from the President Donald Trump’s administration, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday that he was impressed with Trump during their meeting this week in Washington. 

“What I saw from the American president was a focus on getting things done for the people who supported him and who believe in him, while demonstrating that good relations with one’s neighbors is a great way of getting things done,” said Trudeau. 

What else should he have said?  He's a politician.  I'm sure he thinks he is just a buffoon like the rest of the people in the world with a smidgen of a brain.

Trump honouring Pierre Trudeau at the Waldorf Astoria in 1981.

 

trump-canada.jpg

 

 

Trump's hand is on top in the handshake, trying to show physical dominance, but Justin Trudeau had reached out first and quickly gotten close to Trump, refusing to let him pull him into him. (Remember that ten hour handshake with the Japanese prime minister which Trump dominated?) Body language experts say Trudeau held his own with the President in their initial meeting.

 

The fact that Trump indicated he had admired Justin's father may be an indication that the son gets a bit of a pass with him that he might not have otherwise. Justin was all diplomacy yesterday in Washington, but he can also be a scrapper, like his father. One of his favourite past times has been boxing.

Dumping billions of gallons of raw sewage into the oceans isn't being a role model for the world, unless you are a serial polluter.

Trudeau: I Didn't Come To Washington To Lecture President Trump

 

Justin Trudeau: "The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern," he said. "My role... is to continue to govern in such a way that reflects Canadians' approach and be a positive example in the world."

 

Diplomatic as Trudeau's response was, one can still see a sly dig at Trump's America first style with his second sentence.
