“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.

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
