“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 -- Government efforts to offset some of the results of a destructive economic policy are aimed at maintaining political power

Former Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney advising PM on COVID-19 economic response -- Carney recently departed top job at Bank of England after guiding it through Brexit uncertainty (David Cochrane ~~ CBC News ~~ Aug 10, 2020)

Mark Carney — the former governor of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England — has been acting as an informal adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the federal government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Carney "certainly has been advising the PM through different phases of this," said a senior government official speaking on background. "I'd hope we can count on him for more."

This is incredibly dangerous to Canada’s sovereignty.

Mr. Carney is not a neutral advisor primarily interested in the security and welfare of Canada and her people. Mr. Carney’s primary interest is pressing the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) insane and unworkable plans to eliminate carbon dioxide emissions.

There is no hard evidence that the proportion of carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere drives our climate. It is an unproven hypothesis based on faulty computer models and algorithms that the author (Michael Mann) will not reveal for scrutiny by qualified scientists.

Validation of a hypothesis is central to scientific progress. Refusal to reveal his calculations for verification indicates flaws he does not want to reveal.

The World Health Organization (WHO), another UN agency, spent months downplaying the dangers of COVID infections only to pivot in mid-march and declare COVID the most dangerous virus ever. The WHO, supported by governments and the media, has successfully created a COVID Exaggeration Syndrome -- designed to scare people into relinquishing their freedoms and rights to prevent the spread of another flu virus.

It is a better-organized replication of the IPCC doomsday predictions.

The financial crisis Canada is facing is a direct consequence of our lock-down approach to COVID. There are no intervening or external factors.

Our governments chose to lock down the economy for a protracted period. That led to borrowing hundreds of billions to prevent widespread personal and business bankruptcies which would have resulted in civil unrest and removal of the federal government.

Government efforts to offset some of the results of a destructive economic policy are aimed at maintaining political power.

Hundreds of thousands of Canadians who fell through the cracks and will not survive financially attest to the poor planning of financial countermeasures. If Mr. Trudeau and his government are incapable of dealing with the fiscal crisis they have created, they have no choice but to resign.

I am reminded of a speech by Oliver Cromwell when dissolving the British Parliament in 1653:

“You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing lately….
Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”

Three hundred and sixty-seven years later, it is eerily appropriate for our situation.

BONUS material ... apparently, Mr. Carney did not do a stellar job of shepherding the UK through the epidemic. The UK is in recession for the first time in 11 years.”

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
