“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

ANDERSON: After setting himself up as the heroic white knight, Justin Trudeau now finds himself in the unenviable position of having to attack a highly credible aboriginal woman to save his own privileged, white, male skin


MacLean’s Magazine ... March 3rd, 2019
Jody Wilson-Raybould was once one of Justin Trudeau’s star political prospects. Now, a thorn in his side.”


For a period of approximately four months, between September and December 2018, I experienced a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion in my role as the attorney general of Canada in an inappropriate effort to secure a deferred prosecution agreement with SNC-Lavalin.”


Over the nearly four hours of her meticulous testimony that followed, Trudeau’s government sank steadily into a seemingly bottomless crisis."

CLICK HERE for the full MacLean’s magazine story:

 

The ONLY viable defense, of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, is to label Jody Wilson-Raybould a liar -- totally and completely -- thereby tripping over its own virtue-signalling feet.

If only a fraction of what she said is true, the government has no other defense.

Trudeau's current flailing, "I disagree with her completely," for example, is not a defense. 


One does not get caught robbing a bank and then mount a legal defense consisting of "I disagree with the eyewitnesses completely," as if it's all a matter of interpretation or point of view.


Sure, he's slipped up a couple of times before in his behaviour with women, and he's been able to skate away claiming that it was all a matter of perspective, but not this time. Either the PMO (and the civil service) did what Raybould alleges they did, or they did not. There is no room for interpretation or opinion.


Which leads to the highly embarrassing secondary problem: the self-inflicted politically correct morass the PMO has wandered into.

Since taking office ("it's 2015"), the PM (and indeed the entire Liberal Party) has virtue-signaled his way across Canada and the entire globe, lecturing anyone who will listen about climate change, human rights, "the environment," transgender rights, "the middle class," gay rights, indigenous rights, and women's rights.

He has governed by racial / gender quota rather than merit, issued progressive tropes and shibboleths in every direction, and reinforced it all by attempts to shame any opposition to his ridiculously authoritarian pronouncements.

Now Trudeau finds himself in a pickle of his own making ... it would be bad enough on its own if his only defense were to call Raybould a liar, but after setting himself up as the heroic white knight coming to save the day for women and aboriginals, he now finds himself in the unenviable position of having to attack a highly credible aboriginal woman in order to save his own privileged, white, male skin.

The only good thing I can see coming out of this is that the indigenous woman in question has proven to be far more credible than the entire back room gang at the arrogant, virtue signalling Prime Ministers Office (PMO), which bodes well for ending stereotypes in the future.

And a warning, to future progressively-inclined governments, not to build a glass house around yourself if you're going to throw rocks.

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by Rates.ca, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
