Trudeau Buys the Media – Throw a Puck For Self Defense
Tories accuse Trudeau of bribing media with tax breaks
New $600M aid package is ‘antithesis of a free and independent press,’ MP says
The Conservative Opposition is accusing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of trying to bribe Canadian media to secure favourable media coverage in the run-up to next year’s federal election.
The accusations came a day after Finance Minister Bill Morneau announced in the fall economic update that the government was introducing $600 million in tax credits and incentives to help the media industry over the next five years.
Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Buying the Media In Time for 2019 Election
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants an American-like, left-leaning mainstream media for Canada—and is investing more than half a billion taxpayers’ dollars to get it.
Watching from the country next door how the American media, which supplies a 90-plus-percent negative coverage of all things President Donald Trump and whose blatant intent is to drive him out of office, Trudeau wants a 90% left-leaning media in place for Canada’s upcoming 2019 federal election.
Hockey pucks pitched as self-defense against potential active shooters at Michigan university
How do you stop a bad guy with a gun when there’s no good guy with a gun around? Maybe throw a hockey puck at him.
A university in suburban Detroit is distributing hockey pucks as a form of self-defense against potential active shooters, according to reports.
Because Oakland University has a no-weapons policy, university police Chief Mark Gordon suggested using a hockey puck to distract a shooter.
“The first thing that came to my mind was a hockey puck. I was a hockey coach for my kids growing up. I remember getting hit in the head with a hockey puck once and it hurt,” university police Chief Mark Gordon told Detroit’s FOX 2.

Culture and Tourism Minister Ricardo Miranda read an emotional Jewish prayer in the legislature last week
When Culture and Tourism Minister Ricardo Miranda rose in the house last week to deliver a ministerial statement, his mind took him back to his visit to Israel.
There at a children’s memorial, he saw stunted trees never allowed to grow to maturity, in memory of the estimated 1.5 million children who died during the Holocaust.
“It is personal, you know,” Miranda said. “It is my family, it’s myself, it’s my religion, it’s my community.”
That’s who and what he was thinking about while reciting the Kaddish, the traditional Jewish prayer for the dead.
