Canada’s Gun Control Laws Could Become Big Issue For 2019 Election Both the Liberals and Conservatives are talking a lot about guns. Eighteen months ahead of the vote, both the governing party and the official Opposition are laying the groundwork for making guns a wedge issue, to carve away a share of each other’s softer support. The Liberals are aiming at cities and suburbs, while the Conservatives focus on rural and remote ridings.

Liberals look to brand Andrew Scheer as ‘Stephen Harper 2.0’ Liberal Party strategists have started their 2019 campaign preparations in earnest, focusing their energies on Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and their plan to aggressively brand him as “Stephen Harper 2.0” ahead of the next election. Liberal MPs at the caucus retreat in Saskatoon took part in a briefing last night on the party’s readiness ahead of the 2019 election — a briefing that placed heavy emphasis on defining Scheer as a protégé of the former prime minister, sources inside the caucus room said. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/tasker-liberal-retreat-scheer-stephen-harper-1.4821969 70,000 Whites Murdered in ‘Modern’...

‘People experience things differently,’ Trudeau says of groping allegations Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there is no need to conduct an investigation into an allegation that he inappropriately touched a female reporter in British Columbia 18 years ago. “We have, as we always do, taken these issues seriously,” Trudeau said in an exclusive interview with CP24, when asked if the allegation that circulated throughout the national press over the last few weeks should be investigated. “We’ve talked to a broad range of experts on these. I’ve been reflecting very carefully on this and I think we are moving forward...

Tory leader Andrew Scheer cannot be a pussyfooter It’s make it or break it time for Andrew Scheer.

Loaded language: The gun metaphors that pervade our everyday slang Sometimes it’s the offhand remark that’s the most telling. Indeed, the way we Americans casually, often unthinkingly, incorporate gun metaphors into our everyday slang says a lot about how deeply embedded guns are in our culture and our politics, and how difficult it is to control or extract them. Consider this list, presented as bullet points — which are themselves so conventional, so central to the typography of mind-numbing PowerPoint presentations, that you can forget what their shape represents. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/loaded-language-the-gun-metaphors-that-pervade-our-everyday-slang/2014/04/18/40c4053c-c3ed-11e3-b574-f8748871856a_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.b213e551d7cc California considers later school start times as students deal...

Doug Ford government promises to exempt Sikhs who wear turbans from motorcycle helmet laws Members of the Sikh Motorcycle Club of Ontario have been riding around on four wheels instead of two for a number of years because it’s currently illegal to ride a motorcycle with a turban instead of a helmet. “We are basically incomplete without the turban,” said Jagdeep Singh, a representative with the motorcycle group. “We have to be able to wear it in all aspects of life, which includes riding motorcycles.” Doug Ford government promises to exempt Sikhs who wear turbans from motorcycle helmet laws...

Canadian Appeals Court Rules Against Trans Mountain Pipeline The federal appeal court in Canada ruled on August 30 that the application process for the Trans Mountain Pipeline was legally flawed. In a unanimous decision, the court ruled that the Canadian government failed to engage in meaningful consultations with the indigenous people who will be affected if the pipeline is built. They also declared the failure to consider the environmental impact of oil tanker traffic was unjustifiable, especially because the National Energy Board was “legally obligated” to consider all environmental effects, according to a report in the Vancouver Sun. https://cleantechnica.com/2018/08/31/canadian-appeals-court-rules-against-trans-mountain-pipeline/...

History of Rat Control In Alberta Norway rats are one of the most destructive creatures known to man. They destroy and contaminate untold quantities of food, and through their tunneling activities, they undermine the foundations of buildings, sewer and water lines as well as city streets. Rats also weaken and deface buildings by gnawing holes through floors, walls, insulation and supporting structures. Norway rats carried the flea that spread plague throughout Europe and Asia. Even today, rats spread organisms responsible for food poisoning, hepatitis, tularemea and other diseases. Therefore, the people of Alberta are extremely fortunate not to have...
