Trudeau “Christians are the worst part of Canadian society”

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau brought more than 30,000 refugees to Canada over the last year and half , mostly refugees who fled war torn countries like Syria.

Most of those refugees were Muslims, some reports say 99 percent of refugees that came to Canada were Muslim.

Why didn’t Trudeau bring Christian or Jew refugees to Canada who fled rape, beatings and many more sufferings, Trudeau seems to hate Christians, he says: “Christians are the worst part of Canadian society”


Justin Trudeau and the Dismantling of Canadian Identity

Thus far in his tenure, Trudeau has been far more explicit about what he does not want for Canada than he has been regarding the kind of nation he envisions for our future.

One thing he does not want, as publicly stated shortly after taking office, is a Canada based upon “national identity.” This bold assertion, in effect, tells us Trudeau does not believe in a Canada defined by a national heritage developed over 148 years of history. From Canada’s early pioneer settlers, to our cultural roots as an English and French Canadian society, through to the struggle for an identity independent of American cultural domination — Justin Trudeau has deemed these symbols of our nationhood to be irrelevant.


What’s in a name: Indian, Native, Aboriginal or Indigenous? ​

The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) ha​s​ been joined by Anishinabek of Ontario, representing 42 First Nations, in rejecting the name “Aboriginal.”

The AMC, which passed a resolution not to deal with organizations that use the name “Aboriginal” a couple years back, might want to inform the Anishinabek that the term Aboriginal hasn’t been easy to shed.

It’s an English word​, and it’s​ not what they call themselves. Most people assume the word Aboriginal means “the first inhabitants” or “from the beginning.”

But the root meaning of the word​ ​”ab” is a Latin prefix that means “away from” or “not.” And so Aboriginal can mean “not original.”


Trudeau hands MasterCard a gift of your money

Forget the corporate welfare for Canadian Tire’s electric car chargers or the $12 million Justin Trudeau gave Loblaws to help them buy fridges.

We’ve got a new champion for companies pigging out at the taxpayer trough: MasterCard.

That’s right, the Trudeau government is actually giving a handout to a major financial company that makes billions each year.

In a little-noticed government news release last week, Industry Minister Navdeep Bains announced a gift of $50 million to MasterCard to help them set up shop in Vancouver.


Meat tax may be next

For years, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has advocated for a tax on meat to sway people toward adopting a vegan diet. When the concept cropped up in the media again recently, I wanted to know how seriously we should take this new push. Probably more seriously than you might think at first.

I spoke with BC Cattlemen’s Association general manager Kevin Boon, who said the latest round of media stories stemmed from a December essay by the Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return (FAIRR) – a $2.3 trillion dollar investor network that he says represents the interests of crop producers.


Money began to rain on Trudeau Foundation once Justin took over Liberals, analysis shows

A National Post analysis of the Trudeau Foundation’s public disclosures has found that gifts to the foundation have increased significantly since Justin Trudeau’s April 2013 election as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. The amount of money contributed to the foundation by foreign donors has grown each year since Trudeau claimed the party’s leadership. Moreover, a significant proportion of the charity’s donors, directors and members have ties to companies and organizations that are actively lobbying the federal government.
