“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

On SNC-Lavalin, Conservatives will pursue every course of action to make sure Justin Trudeau and his office are held to account

I am deeply disturbed by allegations in the Globe and Mail yesterday, that Justin Trudeau’s office attempted to pressure Jody Wilson-Raybould when she was Canada’s Attorney General, to abandon the criminal prosecution of Quebec engineering and construction giant SNC-Lavalin

The words in that statement, were issued by Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops–Thompson–Cariboo

Even more shocking” she continued, “is that the Prime Minister may have fired her from her role as our country’s first Indigenous Justice Minister and Attorney General.”

McLeod continued, “We have recently seen this just south of our border, where a leader dismissed his Attorney General for defying orders.”

Cathy McLeod was the first Member of Parliament to raise these allegations in the House of Commons yesterday morning, stating:
Everyone was so proud that the former Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada was an Indigenous woman. We congratulated her on her amazing success. We are now learning that the government threw her under the bus.”

It’s not the first time, nor will it be the last Conservatives will accuse the federal Liberal government, of Justin Trudeau, of participating in ‘political interference’.

Twelve months ago in fact, federal Conservatives, including MP Cathy McLeod, were accusing Justin Trudeau of "political interference".

Back then McLeod, as Conservative Indigenous Affairs critic commented, "The tragic death and pain for the family of (Colten Boushie) is unimaginable, and our thoughts are with his community."

Then, came those same words – political interference – as she added, "... we need to let the many steps of an independent judicial process unfold without political interference."

In a media release late this morning, MP McLeod added, “(we have) called for an emergency meeting of the Justice Committee to question the Prime Minister’s Office, and other government officials, over their potential interference in an ongoing criminal prosecution”.

If Liberals prevent officials from the Prime Ministers Office from testifying, Conservatives will pursue every course of action to make sure Justin Trudeau and his office are held to account,” McLeod concluded.

This story is a long way from being over, and as McLeod stated, “Canadians will be watching carefully to see if Liberal MPs block the request. 

A request that is tied into and around SNC-Lavalin illegally donating over $100,000 to the Liberal Party of Canada

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
