“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

FELDSTED: Canadians have a right to expect an orderly process – not the chaos which led Trudeau taking to twitter and another stupid tweet; a taunt to US President Trump

Justin Trudeau is warning voters to be wary of fear-mongering about immigration, suggesting the issue will be a hot-button topic during the federal election campaign this fall ... made the prediction Thursday during a town hall meeting in northern New Brunswick ...

Trudeau's upbeat tone changed when he suggested the world has become increasingly fearful, insular and anxious about immigration ...

 ... people trying to create fear, intolerance and misinformation about immigration across Canada, he said, though he did not name any individuals or groups.

CLICK HERE for the full story:

Canadians are not, and never have been, fearful of immigrants or immigration. 

We are, however, less tolerant of ineptitude and stupidity. Trudeau’s off-the-cuff decision to rush in 40,000 Syrian refugees to Canada, based on seeing a photo of a drowned boy in the newspaper, was a stupid, grandstanding play for a photo opportunity when the ink hadn’t even had a chance to dry on his Oath of Office. 

The incompetence came in when the government failed to bolster the Immigration and Refugee Department, to manage the sudden and unplanned arrival of close to 50,000 extra refugees.

Immediately following this chaos, Trudeau took to twitter with a taunt to US President Trump with another stupid tweet which has resulted in tens of thousands of illegal asylum seekers from the USA, and elsewhere around the world, swarming our borders.  It has also led to a complete breakdown of the Immigration Department and Refugee Board.

We have every right to be concerned over the rising numbers of illegal immigrants flooding over our borders, and government failure to bring order to our immigration system.

Canadians have every right to be concerned that the screening of illegal immigrants is not carried out thoroughly, given the shortage of manpower and pressure to move cases forward.

Canadians have a right to expect an orderly process of bringing in immigrants and refugees that we can afford and manage.

That is not what we have at present, so the questions has to be asked,
Why has there been no effort by this government to reduce the number of immigrants and refugees until the overload is processed?”

... the Safe Third Country Agreement, states that Canada is obliged to return refugees to the US if they make an asylum claim at a border checkpoint. There is a loophole, however: if anyone is found at an illegal crossing they are brought into Canada for questioning, where they can then apply for asylum.

Legitimate criticism of government ineptitude on immigration is not fear-mongering.  Therefore, Trudeau’s efforts to paint immigration criticism, as fear of immigrants, is a deceitful attempt at censorship.  That has also then been coupled with evading responsibility for the mess his government has created.

Don’t let him get away with it.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
