It appears Quebec has the dubious distinction of doing something that China, one of the most oppressive regimes on the planet, likes. Bill 21.
On April 2, the Global Times, a Chinese daily newspaper that has not choice but to support its government’s hardline policies, lauded Quebec’s Bill 21 in one of its articles, comparing favourably it to the Chinese policy of repressing that country’s Muslim Uighur minority. Seriously? This is what we have come to?
Legault’s response was that he didn’t want to comment on everything that’s written in the world. Come on. This response is not coming from Biloxi Mississippi. It’s coming from a government sanctioned Chinese newspaper. At least admit that you made the big time complete with your five minutes of fame.
We also have a question which no one has yet asked: Blanche, don’t you want to see the polling question asked by the government regarding Bill 21? The premier says the vast majority like this bill. Let’s see what was asked to elicit these numbers. We are betting the question was misleading and skewed.
After two years of interviews, arrests, innuendos and everything in between, the Mueller report was released today. It’s called The Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election and it’s 855 pages long.
The original reason for this investigation was to see if Trump colluded with the Russians to fix the 2016 election. In other words, was he elected President by nefarious means. The answer to that is no. Members of the Trump campaign did not conspire, coordinate or collude with Russians during the election.
So much for the likes of Adam Schiff who repeatedly said, for no less than two years, “Wait. You’ll see there’s collusion.” Now what Schiff?
Here’s what the very frustrated Democrats are doing: They dropped collusion and are now trying obstruction of justice. It won’t work. Nor did appointing Mueller who himself used lawyers who despised Trump to try to ‘get him’. Nothing to see here.
Justin Trudeau was citizenship and immigration critic when Jason Kenney, now newly-elected premier of Alberta, was the minister for the same file in his early days in Stephen Harper’s government.
To say Kenney didn’t think much of Trudeau would be a gross understatement: “This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger-bowl.” Oooh. We could not have said it better ourselves – the political depth of a finger-bowl.
Get this Blanche: When Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister, 29 million Canadians lived in provinces run by provincial Liberals. That number currently stands at 1.6 million.
Let’s just say Trudeau is no match for the articulate, intelligent, quick-on-his-feet Kenney, who will no doubt campaign heavily against Trudeau before the October 21 election.
While running for premier of Alberta, Kenney charged that Trudeau’s policies on the Northern Gateway, Energy East and Trans Mountain pipelines are responsible for high rates of unemployment, insolvencies and reduced take-home pay for Albertans. Trudeau now has to add another line on his ever-increasing long list of problems he has to deal with.
Can anyone explain why people live in flood-prone zones? Because the housing is cheaper? Where’s the saving if your house floods every year and you need to rebuild it?
The next three days, as every other April, is going to bring an unusual amount of rain. People living in those zones are very nervous. No kidding. The river next to your house is going to overflow and your basement, at best, will be flooded.
Seems the bike path is no longer useable. Are these people for real?
Good Shabbos and Happy Passover We’ll talk…
