Canada: The cause of death?

In 2016, Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, introduced Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), which allowed those who were suffering from severe illnesses/disabilities to request euthanasia from medical practitioners. It has taken a horrific turn recently, as in 2023, Trudeau will be extending it to include those experiencing mental health issues. In his article, Maid: from Consent to Coercion, Darshan Maharaja provides yet another recent development on the MAiD front: Even after seeing many shocking facts & revelations on the MAiD issue over the past 2 months, it came as a jolt to me that the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has made a draft policy to the effect that the death certificate of MAiD recipients in the province will NOT show MAiD as the cause of their death… READ: MAiD: From Consent To Coercion It is also being pushed on people who didn’t request it A Canadian army veteran, who was permanently injured during military training, was allegedly offered MAiD by a government bureaucrat, when she complained to the Federal government’s Veteran Affairs …

Canada: Your stair-lift delivery will be late, would you prefer euthanasia instead?

Welcome to the new Canada, where you are offered euthanasia if you are becoming frustrated by how long it is taking to have a stair-lift installed in your home. It is a story of how sick the euthanasia culture, officially referred to as Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID), has become in Canada and how quickly it sunk after being introduced by Prime Minister Trudeau in 2016. Disabled retired Army Corporal Christine Gauthier is a former Paralympian and in recent testimony before Canada’s House of Commons she shared her story about an alleged encounter with the Federal government’s veteran affairs, the Daily Mail reports. Gauthier had been permanently injured in an army training accident in 1989, and had requested a stairlift for her home in 2017, so she wouldn’t have to crawl to her bedroom using her hands. Though approved there were significant delays in getting it installed. According to Gauthier while complaining to a Veteran Affair’s employee about the delay, he apparently offered MAID to solve her problem. READ: Disabled Canadian Army veteran Paralympian blasts …

Religious leaders condemn Canada’s euthanasia laws

In an interview with Fox News, religious leaders in Canada are condemning the country’s euthanasia laws which are among the most expansive in the world. Since, the program, which goes by the acronym MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying), was introduced in 2016, the provisions have been gradually loosened each year. In 2023, the rules will be expanded allowing those who are experiencing mental illness to apply for medically assisted suicide and to even give doctors permission to suggest it as an option for their patients. In an interview with Fox News, Vancouver’s Roman Catholic Archbishop, J. Michael Miller called the law ‘morally depraved’ adding: “In six years, Canada has gone from totally banning euthanasia to one of the most permissive euthanasia regimes in the world. And even more access could be coming, including allowing ‘mature minors’ to request it.” RELATED: Canadian religious leaders speak out as country set to allow euthanasia for mental illness The loosening of Canada’s medically assisted suicide laws Breitbart provides more details on the gradual loosening of the rules for medically …

RCMP charge Hydro-Québec employee with spying for China

The Canadian RCMP have charged an individual working at Hydro-Québec for allegedly spying on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. Quebec Hydro is owned by the province of Quebec and provides power to Quebec and parts of the US. The man charged has worked for the government-owned corporation since 2016 and was involved in its technology branch that focussed on battery development. The Epoch Times provides more information: Yuesheng Wang, 35, of Candiac, Quebec, allegedly obtained trade secrets “to benefit the People’s Republic of China, to the detriment of Canada’s economic interests,” an RCMP spokesperson said in a press conference on Nov. 14. “Mr. Wang was charged with espionage for obtaining trade secrets in the course of his duties with Hydro-Québec,” said Insp. David Beaudoin. “This is the first time this charge has been laid in Canada.” Wang is facing four espionage-related charges, including: obtaining trade secrets, unauthorized use of computer, fraud for obtaining trade secrets, and breach of trust by public officer.

Is the Chinese Communist Party trying to subvert Canadian elections?

According to a report by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), the Chinese Communist Party was trying to subvert Canada’s democracy which included providing funding to several Liberal and Conservative candidates in the 2019 federal election, Global News reports. More from Global News: Canadian intelligence officials have warned Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that China has allegedly been targeting Canada with a vast campaign of foreign interference, which includes funding a clandestine network of at least 11 federal candidates running in the 2019 election, according to Global News sources. Delivered to the prime minister and several cabinet members in a series of briefings and memos first presented in January, the allegations included other detailed examples of Beijing’s efforts to further its influence and, in turn, subvert Canada’s democratic process, sources said. Based on recent information from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), those efforts allegedly involve payments through intermediaries to candidates affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), placing agents into the offices of MPs in order to influence policy, seeking to co-opt and corrupt former …

Canada: At $218 a plate, this wasn’t your typical airplane meal

While the world’s elite tell the rest of us to cut our DisneyPlus subscriptions and eat Chef Boyardee to survive inflation, we aren’t expecting them to live by the same rules. On a recent trip to Dubai, Canada’s taxpayer-funded Governor General, Mary Simon and 45 friends who joined her on the trip enjoyed an in-flight meal that cost $218 a plate. Blacklock’s Reporter provides the details: Governor General Mary Simon and travelling companions dined on steak, cake and Chardonnay on a costly junket to Dubai, records show. Staff claimed Simon and 45 friends ate typical airline food. Actual menus for meals that cost $218 per plate featured French crepes, Beef Wellington and Red Velvet Cake with Chantilly cream: “$218 per meal would represent groceries for a whole family.” READ (Behind paywall): Steak, Cake And Chardonnay And when Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau and his entourage attended Queen Elizabeth’s funeral on Sept 19, 2022, someone stayed in a hotel room that cost $6,000 a night.

Canada’s Deputy Prime tells Canadians to cut DisneyPlus subscription to make ends meet

Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Chrystia Freeland recently had some advice for Canadians struggling to pay the bills because of government-caused inflation, rapidly rising fuel and heating bills due in part to higher carbon taxes. She told Canadians to follow her example and cut their DisneyPlus subscription and save $13.99 a month: This may explain some of Canada’s financial problems. As an MP, Freeland earns $189,500 a year, plus an additional $90,400 as Finance Minister totaling $280,000. I was unable to determine how much Freeland earns as Deputy Prime Minister, but the Deputy House leader in the Senate earns $42,000, so I suspect Freeland is probably in that range, putting her salary at closer to $320,000 a year. If she has to cut her DisneyPlus channel to make ends meet on that annual salary, no wonder Canada is in such a financial mess.

Allegations Britain is stripping Canada’s old-growth forests

With its move to green energy, primarily wind and solar, one of Britain’s power plants has also converted a coal power plant to wood in order to go green and produce power. The BBC alleges that one of the sources of its wood is environmentally important ‘old-growth’ forests in British Columbia, Canada. The BBC explains: One of the Drax forests is a square mile, including large areas that have been identified as rare, old-growth forest. The provincial government of British Columbia says old-growth forests are particularly important and that companies should put off logging them. Drax’s own responsible sourcing policy says it “will avoid damage or disturbance” to primary and old-growth forest. However, the latest satellite pictures show Drax is now cutting down the forest.

Meet Canada’s ‘misguided’ Attorney General

Someone, I personally know, worked as a counsellor for a youth drug rehab group in a major city for several years. I can’t tell you the number of funerals she has gone to for people who have died of drug overdoses, primarily from Fentanyl. This included more than one who went on one last binge before entering the program. But Canada’s Attorney General believes the real victims are the drug dealers. Blacklock’s Reporter writes: “Criminal law should not punish misguided drug dealers who just want to “put bread on the table,” Attorney General David Lametti said yesterday. Lametti made the comment in defending a cabinet bill to repeal mandatory minimum sentences for cocaine traffickers: “Did you talk to victims’ groups?” READ (Behind a paywall): Sorry For Misguided Dealers

Canada’s push for medically assisted suicide

For those who are unaware, Canada has been providing medically assisted suicide since 2016 and is among 8 countries that fully or partially allow it, writes Susan Bates in her article for the Deseret News. “Canada’s law is considered among the most expansive, and has some of the fewest safeguards for patients,” Bates added. It is officially called Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) and according to reports, over 10,000 Canadian were given this assistance in 2021. This was a 32% increase over 2020. But there have been concerns about what is going on after a Canadian veteran stated he was pressured by an employee at Veterans Affairs Canada to use MAID to end his life. What was equally disturbing is that the man, who suffered from PTSD hadn’t brought up the issue and according to Global News, the government employee continued pushing it even after the man had said he wasn’t interested.

Canada: Trudeau’s anti-racist program terminated because of racism?

Earlier, this year, the Liberal government of Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, had provided taxpayer funds to Community Media Advocacy Center to develop an anti-racism strategy. However, the federal government was allegedly forced to terminate the contract with the group in late August, after tweets surfaced made by the group’s chief consultant, Laith Marouf. The Blaze provides more of the alleged details: Marouf, a Palestinian-Syrian activist, has a history of well-documented anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist comments, particularly on his now-locked Twitter account, for which the bio reads: “Decolonizing the media since 1999.” One of his tweets said: “You know all those loud mouthed bags of human feces, aka the Jewish White Supremacists; when we liberate Palestine and they have to go back to where they come from, they will return to being low voiced bitches of thier [sic] Christian/Secular White Supremacist Masters.” […] In a posting on July 8, 2022, he attacked French Canadians, writing: “French Frogs are very tasty roasted.

Communist China paying Canadian politicians?

Call me sarcastically shocked. But according to Blacklock’s Reporter, a former espionage officer told a Canadian House of Commons ethics committee that there are politicians in Canada, federal, provincial and municipal, who are being paid by the Chinese Communist Party: Blacklock’s reports: MPs, provincial legislators and city councillors are known to be in the pay of foreign agents, a former espionage officer yesterday told the Commons ethics committee. The foreign agents’ source country was not named though cabinet has accused China of clandestine activities: “What we know for sure is we have various foreign countries that succeeded in recruiting elected officials – again, municipal, provincial or federal.” READ: See Politicians In China’s Pay I suspect he also has names. True North provides more details: “We had to monitor parliamentarians.

The former intelligence chief was tightlipped on how many politicians were working with …

Did the Pope get it wrong? … or right?

Most of the world knows, now, that the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church has just finished a visit to Canada. He is eighty-four years old, and sometimes he was transported in a wheelchair. I live close to some of the sites that he visited, and I know, the weather was hot. Apparently, he is now talking about retirement. So, what would motivate a man in his eighties, to travel to the other side of the world, and speak to huge crowds? The stadium, where he held a mass, holds about sixty thousand, and about fifty thousand attended the mass. The local authorities warned about traffic disruptions on major highways. The motivation was clear; there is a history of church-run boarding schools for native people, and the Pope now describes that as “genocide.” He traveled to Canada to apologize for something that his church did. He believes his church was wrong. Can we judge the Pope? Was he wrong? Or was he correct? Was it important for an old man to travel so far, and …

Canada: Has Trudeau weaponized the justice system?

If you want an idea of what is going on in Canada under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, listen to the interview that Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson had with Tamara Lich’s attorney, Keith Wilson. Tamara was one of the leaders of the Freedom Convoy 2022 protest in Ottawa earlier this year, calling for an end to Trudeau’s COVID mandates. Wilson said that Trudeau has weaponized Canada’s justice system, as the 49-year-old grandmother spent 49 days in jail. The Post Millennial provided some excerpts: “She committed the most minor crime that we have in our Criminal Code, Tucker. And it’s called the crime of mischief. It’s remarkable what’s happened here,” Wilson told Carlson.[…] Wilson went on to explain in detail that Lich’s arrest is “more than a human right’s violation” but rather a deliberate attempt by Prime Minister Trudeau to “intimidate” Canadian citizens. “Look what Tamara did. She inspired not only Canadians, 1000s of truckers, to drive to Ottawa to stand for their rights and stand against the authoritarian overreach from these COVID policies. But she also …

Canada: More on Trudeau’s assault on agriculture

For those unaware, the Farm Credit Corporation (FCC), is a federal bank that provides financial assistance in the form of loans and loan guarantees to Canadian farmers. Its boss is ultimately Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Some are concerned about the release of information from the FCC’s office in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. According to Blacklock’s Reporter, FCC’s Regina office was wanting employees to keep track of any farmers who may have been involved in the trucker convoy in Ottawa, that took place earlier this year. Truckers from across Canada, gathered in the country’s capital city, calling for Trudeau to end his COVID mandates. Blacklock’s Reporter explains: “Internal documents confirm a federal bank, Farm Credit Canada of Regina, told employees to secretly record the names of customers who supported the Freedom Convoy. The Access To Information records contradict the agency’s public denial it began blacklisting clients “in support of activity related to the Freedom Convoy.” Staff emails showed managers were still compiling names of customers even after cabinet lifted the Emergencies Act: “If you become aware of …

Are Canadians tiring of their ‘divisive’ Prime Minister?

A recent online poll conducted in June by Postmedia-Léger suggests that Canadians are tiring of their Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, the National Post reports. A clear majority of Canadians, over 60%, said Trudeau was divisive, and is contributing to growing national unity issues in Canada as he pits parts of the country against other regions. The poll also found that 55% of Canadians strongly or somewhat disapprove of Trudeau’s performance. This sentiment was the same in all political parties. Meanwhile, only 7% strongly approved of Trudeau’s performance. Nearly half (49%) believe that Trudeau should resign as leader of the Liberal party before the next federal election. Only 30% believe he should continue as its leader and 21% weren’t sure. READ: Canadians disapprove of Justin Trudeau’s job as prime minister and feel he is divisive, national opinion survey says In the last federal election, held in August 2021, only 32.6% of Canadians voted for Trudeau and the Liberal Party. This means nearly 68% rejected him as Prime Minister. However, Trudeau’s minority government was able to secure …

Canada: 85% of new jobs were in government since the start of the pandemic

Pointing at job numbers, Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has been gloating about how Canada’s economy has bounced back from the pandemic. But has it? According to a recent survey of jobs in Canada, 85% of the jobs created since February 2020, involved working for the government. The Hub has more details: That Canada’s economy fully restored the jobs lost during the pandemic by late 2021 seemed to answer these questions. Headlines and commentaries declared that “Canada’s pandemic jobs recovery has been remarkable” and “Canada’s labour market bounces back.” The Trudeau government was even more affirmative: its 2021 economic and fiscal update, for instance, boasted that the economy was “roaring back” based on recouping 106 percent of the jobs lost during the pandemic. Yet these top-level claims require a deeper dive into what’s really behind Canada’s post-pandemic recovery. The data tell us a less favourable story than the prevailing narrative in the media or from the government. Much of Canada’s post-pandemic jobs recovery—indeed, nearly 85 percent since February 2020 — has actually been concentrated in …

Comparing Canada’s Emergency Act with Ukraine’s

As you may have heard, Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has ended the Emergency Act. Coincidentally, it occurred on the same day that Ukraine invoked its Emergency Act. READ: Ukraine imposes state of emergency One of the major concerns in Canada is that the Prime Minister can only invoke the Emergency Act during a serious national crisis, threatening the security of the nation. So let’s compare what happened in Canada with what is going on in Ukraine. Trudeau: While, Trudeau was fighting off bouncy castles during the Ottawa protests. Apparently, once they are set up, the walls are impossible to breach: Ukraine: The Ukraine was facing missile attacks in its capital city: And Russian helicopter attacks: Trudeau: While Trudeau was dealing with the massive security threat of people dancing in the streets during the Ottawa protests: Ukraine: Ukraine was watching Russian troops and tanks enter its territory: So who had the bigger emergency?
