Blackface Trudeau Talks Racism – Rioters Need to Social Distance
Justin Trudeau lost for words for 21 seconds when asked about US riots
Justin Trudeau took a full 21 seconds to gather his thoughts when asked about President Donald Trump possibly calling in the military to quell protests in the US. After the lengthy pause, he eventually said: ‘We all watch in horror and consternation at what is going on the United States.’ The Canadian prime minister was also asked about Trump’s heavy-handed methods to clear peaceful demonstrators in order to stage a photo op at a church close to the White House. He added: ‘It is a time to pull people together. It is a time to listen, to learn what injustices continue despite progress over years and decades.’ Mr Trudeau talked about the need to fight racism in Canada, as he has been doing since the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week sparked a week of unrest in cities across the States.

Minneapolis Mayor to Rioters: Please Practice Social Distancing, Wear Masks
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) requested on Thursday that “protesters” in the City of Lakes practice social distancing and wear masks to reduce coronavirus transmission. The municipal government claimed to provide hundreds of masks to the public for this purpose.
Frey’s comments came during ongoing protests and riots in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, a man who died after a municipal police officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck while handcuffed.
The city government issued a statement on Thursday via its website with the mayor’s request.
“The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the statement reads. “The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”
Ontario Premier Counters Trudeau: Target Criminals, Not Law-Abiding Gun Owners
Ontario Premier Doug Ford countered Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s gun ban on Saturday by urging money be spent targeting criminals instead of placing new prohibitions on law-abiding gun owners.
The Canadian Press quoted Ford saying, “The problem is not the legal gun owners, we need to target the smugglers and we need to throw the book at these gangsters out there terrorizing our streets.”
“Throw the key away with these people if they get caught with guns, don’t give them a slap on the wrist and then try to point the finger at legal, law abiding gun owners,” Ford added.
Breitbart News reported Trudeau’s announcement of a ban on 1,500 different firearms on Friday. The ban, effective immediately, gives those who own guns up to two years to hand them over.
The Globe and Mail reported that liberals in Canada have long sought the ban and pledged a buyback to go with it. The buyback would be put in place during the two-year amnesty period, allowing the current owners of newly banned guns to be compensated when they turn in their firearms.
The estimated price tag of the buyback is $250 million.
Wildrose is Back: FCP & Wexit to vote on merger
The Wildrose is back in Alberta – and this time they want the province to leave Confederation
The Freedom Conservative Party of Alberta (FCP) and Wexit Alberta have decided to join forces and, if members approve, will be called the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.
The FCP’s Bill Jones and Wexit’s Peter Downing signed the agreement to merge on Monday.
“The people of Alberta, having been exploited by the federal government since its establishment as a province in 1905, and having attempted in good faith for generations to seek reconciliation without resolution, require a political vessel with which to sever or radically redefine its ties with the federal government,” the two parties said in a release.Share on Facebook Tweet about this
