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 …

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s fortunate timing?

Canada recently had a national election, where Prime Minister Trudeau squeaked back in with another minority government on Monday, Sept 20, 2021. There were multiple ethics issues that surfaced during Trudeau’s tenure including allegations the Prime Minister was trying to protect his corporate buddies a SNC Lavalin Inc.

CTV News explains: OTTAWA — The corporate entities of SNC-Lavalin Inc. and SNC-Lavalin International Inc., as well as two former senior executives of the Quebec-based firms have been charged with a series of fraud and forgery offenses …

Canada: What are they trying to cover up?

Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, set up the Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) in 2017 as a crown corporation, providing it with a budget of $35 billion to fund projects that are of public interest and would entice outside investors. But then members of the House of Commons came up with a crazy idea, they wanted to know how much money the crown corporation was paying in bonuses to its senior management. Often such requests are an indication that Canadian MPs have been hearing some rumours. Incredibly, this crown corporation owned by the taxpayers of Canada and run by the government of Canada is refusing to release that information. Which leads to the bigger question, what is the CIB trying to cover up? The Globe and Mail provides the details: The Canada Infrastructure Bank is refusing to disclose bonuses paid to executives despite a unanimous vote by MPs on a House of Commons committee calling for the amounts to be revealed. Members of Parliament on the standing committee on transport, infrastructure and communities, including Liberal MPs, …

Trudeau: A propaganda tool for the Chinese Communist Party?

A few days ago, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called anyone critical of his admiration of the Chinese Communist Party as racist. This racism accusation was Trudeau’s response to a very legitimate question in the House of Commons on why his government allowed scientists working for China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) full access to a level 4 virology lab in Winnipeg.
