“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

Globe and Mail says Trudeau is ... a Canadian brand that’s up there with canoes and beavers – one carefully built for his millions of social-media followers

While one political party has stated that Justin Trudeau is ‘not as advertised’, what does the media have to say?  One thing is undeniable, the Trudeau brand is definitely tarnished.

August 15th, 2019 ... “Trudeau vs. Dion: How the PM and ethics commissioner differ on the SNC-Lavalin affair

... February 7th the Globe and Mail broke the story that Trudeau's office had tried to pressure Wilson-Raybould to intervene in the corruption and fraud prosecution of SNC-Lavalin ... Trudeau reacted saying the allegations were "false" ... insisted neither he nor any of his staff "directed" Wilson-Raybould to intervene in the case ... (Ethics Commissioner) report, Dion found four significant attempts by Trudeau and staff to influence Wilson-Raybould, through tactics he found "troubling" ...

October 13th, 2011 ... “The intensity, the excitement of being in the middle of a political campaign — it’s heavy, it’s fun stuff,” started Trudeau. “There’s pizza, sex and all sorts of fun things.”

... It was one of several lighter moments in a student town hall session ...

... when the SNC-Lavalin scandal struck, Trudeau had no political capital left to fight it.  Although Trudeau insisted he was protecting jobs, his handling of the affair disappointed many who had voted for a different kind of politics in 2015. Wilson-Raybould and another cabinet minister, Jane Philpott, were booted from the Liberal caucus. Trudeau’s oldest and closest advisor, Butts, was forced to step down ...

October 1st, 2019 ... “Why do the rules of politics not apply to Justin Trudeau? Because he’s a celebrity first

... it would be easy to chalk this up (black / brown face) to his famous last name. But that would cheapen the sustained effort that went into building a Canadian brand that’s up there with canoes and beavers – one carefully built for his millions of social-media followers ... politics may not be the best lens through which to see Mr. Trudeau. In a way, that’s merely what he does for a living. Instead, he is a celebrity ...

October 7th, 2019 ... “Trudeau is rumored to be in talks with an accuser to suppress an explosive sex scandal”

... Trudeau’s accuser is said to be a former student at West Point Grey Academy and the daughter of a wealthy Canadian businessman.  Sources tell The Chronicle that she is being represented by counsel and is being offered monetary compensation in exchange for a pending, but not yet signed, non-disclosure agreement ...

... a new poll looking at the virtues of the political leaders spells bad news for Justin Trudeau. Of all the politicians, the Liberal leader was found to be the most elitist, hypocritical and fake by the Leger online poll. And when it came to honesty, straight-forwardness and trustworthiness, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer scored better than Trudeau ...

September 19th, 2019 ... “The Ironic Inversion of Justin Trudeau's Progressive Brand Is Complete. The prime minister promised he was a different kind of rich, white politician

... it isn’t clear where the federal election campaign goes from here. Trudeau’s personal brand has taken a beating over the last year, but the brownface and blackface photos represent perhaps the final inversion of the persona sold to Canadians. There is no “good” way to handle the sudden exposure of racist photos, but certainly an especially bad way is when you have been baying for blood over similar sins from your moral high horse and then you’re pleading special treatment when you’re suddenly trampled under its feet ...

July 8th, 2018 ... “Justin Trudeau ‘apologised after groping me’ says ex-reporter at heart of scandal”

... Rose Knight confirmed a newspaper report that said Trudeau apologised for the 2000 incident, and said he wouldn’t have been ‘so forward’ if he’d known she was a reporter ...

September 19th, 2019 ... “Tarnished world image may finally doom Trudeau

... Trudeau stonewalled the RCMP, who are considering a formal obstruction of justice investigation in the SNC-Lavalin case. Several damning facts about that sordid story are undeniable ... he deliberately didn’t tell Canadians the truth ... put relentless pressure on then-Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould to help a company accused of bribery and financial fraud avoid a criminal trial, then demoted her and kicked her and Jane Philpott out of the Liberal caucus ...

This very brief listing of news stories is barely the tip of the iceberg.  Go ahead and see for yourself – just type Justin Trudeau in a Google search. I'd recommend doing it before you cast your ballot however, especially if you're still an undecided voter.

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

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
