With so much of our personal lives being recorded, judged and put on display, we’ve lost the very thing that defines civilization: privacy. With real life implications to virtual actions, via punitive regimes such as the Chinese Social Credit System, the Common Identity Repository, and Silicon Valley itself, how can we protect ourselves from being de-personed?
Join Danielle and Robert as they discuss the implications of Big Brother in both its political and corporate forms.
Canada has had no abortion laws for some 31 years now. When U.S. vice president Mike Pence visited Canada last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a point of raising the abortion issue with him by expressing his concern over women’s access to abortion in certain U.S. states. Many observers thought this inappropriate, given that the purpose of Pence’s visit was to promote the new trade deal between the two countries.
With recent changes to abortion laws in some American jurisdictions, a debate long thought settled is clearly not so. What has become clear after years of abortion’s availability is that it has not cured the social ills it was expected to solve.
A relatively unique characteristic of the abortion debate is that, while the issue has its extremely polarized opponents (who favor a total prohibition of abortion) and proponents (who want free abortions on demand), most people do not find themselves in either of these two camps. For most people, the availability of abortion is acceptable under certain conditions and not acceptable under other conditions.
Where one draws the line on abortion can be an extremely complicated consideration, taking into account many factors beyond the procedure itself.Continue reading »
Is veganism a creed subject to protection under the Human Rights Commission of Ontario? We may soon find out as a firefighter has filed a complaint against his employer on the grounds that his diet was not sufficiently accommodated whilst fighting a massive forest fire in B.C.. He self-identifies as an “ethical vegan” which he claims is a creed and therefore must be catered to by his employer.
What exactly is a creed and what obligations do employers have to accommodate the personal preferences of their employees?
Join Danielle and Robert as they discuss so-called “human rights” versus personal choices.
Guilt by association is a smear tactic used by Justin Trudeau, his Liberal Party of Canada, and his loyal Canadian media. The latest attack is against Conservative Party Leader, Andrew Scheer in the June issue of MacLean’s which tried to associate him with supposed “white supremacists.”
If one were to examine Trudeau and his Liberals and use the same guilt by association attack one would find more than alleged “white supremacists.” One would find terrorists, convicted attempted assassins, and yes, even white supremacists – real Nazis.
Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University and Just Right Media contributor, suggests that Canada deserves better than such low-handed mud slinging and demonstrates that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement that he would introduce a ‘Digital Charter’ to protect Canadians from on line ‘disinformation’ was a chilling indictment of his government’s ideology and political objectives.
Unable to control the public narrative in his favor as he heads into a federal election, Trudeau has sought to undermine the very foundation of liberal democracy by threatening to impose “meaningful financial consequences” on social media platforms that do not censor, ‘deplatform,’ or otherwise “counter disinformation” on their sites.
To call this unconscionable would be an understatement. But given the identity politics that has defined Trudeau’s government as one obsessed with categorizing the nation’s citizens on the basis of race, color, sex, language, heritage, gender, and religion, his agenda deserves to be called that and more. After all, maintaining falsehoods requires censorship; truth requires an environment of freedom of speech.Continue reading »
With the introduction of Canada’s “Digital Charter” it is as if Justin Trudeau has taken a page out of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four— committing yet another assault on our freedoms.
Placing partisan unionists on the panel to select which Liberal-friendly media outlet should receive his bribe money to keep conservative voices from being expressed is taking a page from Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals.
In all his actions Justin Trudeau is making himself out to be a tyrant in the style of the Chinese communists which he so admires.
Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University makes a plea to stop this full-frontal onslaught of our freedoms before it is too late and we lose that one freedom which makes all our other freedoms possible: our freedom of speech.
In the United States, Medicare costs (along with the cost of health care services generally) continue to rise to unsustainable levels. As patient satisfaction levels decline, many Americans have been led to call for a Canadian-style ‘universal’ health care system. Meanwhile in Canada, and unknown to most Americans, health care waiting lists continue to grow, as more and more Canadians find themselves unable to get the basic care they need.
While each country boasts excellent health care services, broad accessibility to these services has become another matter entirely. Common to both countries are various prohibitions of the provision of medical services on a truly free market, which guarantees cost escalation. As more people find it difficult to afford their basic health care needs, politicians have seized upon the problem they caused by offering them a means to access those services without incurring a direct personal cost – socialized health care.
In the perpetual controversy over socialized health care, confusion reigns supreme, partially due to the varying testimonials of patients within a given system. Some are quite happy with the medical services they receive, while most appear less so. Another reason has to do with the fact that at any given point in time, only a minority of people find themselves forced to experience their health care systems directly, while the vast majority has no direct knowledge of the crisis looming at their doorsteps.
