Being required to ‘prove a negative’ perhaps defines one of the fundamental roots of injustice (to say nothing of irrationality), and yet, that is what Canada’s latest round of ‘drunk driving’ laws (under Canada’s Bill C-46) actually does.

Under the new ‘drunk driving’ laws, those caught over the ‘legal limit’ any time within two hours after having last driven a motor vehicle, can now be required to ‘prove’ their sobriety when they last drove. Being over the legal alcohol limit any time within two hours after having last driven is now considered an impaired driving offense, even though not driving at the time.

And when a sober Mississauga driver returned what was deemed to be an ‘excessive’ number of bottles for recycling at his Beer Store, he found himself forced to take a breathalyzer to prove his sobriety.

Given an absence of ‘probable cause’ and the requirement of reverse onus, in their assessment of this situation Danielle and Robert entertain the possibility of an encroaching ‘police state.’ Continue reading »

Tommy Robinson with Andrew Lawton

With a first-hand account of several arresting developments in the ‘re-trial’ of Britain’s Tommy Robinson, guest Andrew Lawton shares some of his personal observations about the real story behind the on-going trials of Tommy Robinson. As a fellow of the True North Initiative, Andrew recently found himself face-to-face with members of the British media while attending court proceedings there.

It turned out that there was less to report about Tommy, than about how the British media has (not) been reporting the arresting developments related to his ‘contempt of court’ charges. To complicate matters, discussion about the issue at the core of the entire controversy – immigration and the problems related to political Islam – is not tolerated.

Having declared the media an “enemy of the people,” Tommy Robinson does not risk alienating a media that might otherwise objectively report the facts surrounding the sheer injustice to which he has been subject. Britain’s mainstream media, like the North American mainstream media, is primarily Leftist in nature, cocooned in an environment where ‘facts-don’t-matter.’

In an age where people can see the ‘facts’ for themselves thanks to modern technology and communications, the contrast between what the mainstream reports and what people can see is difficult to avoid. Yet the Left does indeed avoid it, without apology. Continue reading »

The New York Times

That there are those who would regard the New York Times’ anonymous admission of a crime to be an ‘op-ed’ is astounding: “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration. I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations” reads the Sept 5, 2018 headline.

How is it possible that an admission of this sort can be considered ‘opinion’?

This is no ‘opinion.’ It is an assertion of fact on the part of its writer. It is not possible to argue that claiming to be part of a ‘resistance’ is an ‘opinion.’ Nor does the blind rage and hatred expressed against Trump in the same editorial qualify for ‘opinion’ status since it is utterly baseless and presented without a single example or referent on which that ‘opinion’ is based. It is not opinion; it is hate speech.

All participants in this crime, including the New York Times, which has admitted knowing who the criminal is, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent that US law allows. Continue reading »

Caledonia Protest

The more things change the more they stay the same. That is certainly true when it comes to principals and principles. While Antifa are the main principals when it comes to protests in 2018 back in 2006 it was a gang of thugs in Caledonia, Ontario. And while the principals may have changed what remains unchanged are the the principles upon which the law should act when faced with such protests.

Dusting off a 12-year-old episode of Left, Right & Center with Jim Chapman and Bob Metz we find reference to the old Caledonia protest and the philosophic principles which should guide the actions of law enforcement. It can be demonstrated that when they disregard these principles only more chaos and protests ensue.

Also in this episode; just a few short weeks away from Canada’s relaxing of cannabis prohibition laws we can go back to 2006 and hear how Bob Metz correctly predicted the collusion between government and organized crime (cronies) years before anyone could have foreseen the new pot laws. Gun crime was the issue being discussed but one of the solutions was the end to cannabis prohibition; a real end and not just a continuation of monopolistic control on the growth and distribution which we see being planned by many provincial governments.

Not heard since it was originally broadcast on CHRW on October 11, 2006, and just a few months away from the creation of his own program, have a listen to Bob Metz put two never-ending issues into a perspective which is Just Right.

Safe Injection Sites

Since last joining us on Just Right, Amir Farahi of the London Institute has become the Chair of London’s Transportation Committee, been appointed to the Municipal Advisory Committee for Rapid Transit, and has become project manager of a $20 million development plan called Venture London.

Over the same period, Amir’s views have become less accessible to the London community. He no longer appears on the weekly Wednesday CJBKam1290 round-table with Ken Eastwood and Lisa Brandt or on Andy Oudman’s Live Drive, which has been dropped by the same station. And because of the recent folding of a London community newspaper, Our London, Amir’s regular and insightful columns about municipal issues are also no longer available there.

So it should be no surprise that Amir now plans to provide a fresh media platform for people who have “lost the opportunity to be a voice for reason” in the London community. Stay tuned for further developments on this front as we delve into the controversies that have driven all of these changes and developments.

As examples of the municipal themes Amir is now dealing with in an official capacity are those discussed on today’s show: the traffic problem, the drug problem and the political problem – issues facing municipalities everywhere. Continue reading »

Nunes Memo

Hot on the heels of the release of the ‘Nunes memo,’ Salim Mansur once again joins us to share an insight that both explains the incredible significance of its release, and offers a ‘who’s who‘ behind the illegalities and corrupt activities orchestrated by the Democratic Party against Donald Trump.

The ‘Nunes memo’ is named after Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) in the U.S. Congress, California representative Devin Nunes.

His January 18, 2018 memo to that committee summarized an “investigation update” on “significant facts relating to the Committee’s ongoing investigation into the DOJ and FBI and their use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the 2016 presidential election cycle.”

The memo was declassified by the order of the President on February 2, 2018. As always, the devil is in the details and with Salim connecting the dots, the story that unfolds tells a tale that dwarfs the infamous Watergate scandal, a story that compelled then-president Richard Nixon to resign.

Prostitute

When people of “like minds” find themselves opposed to each other on certain specific issues, there is usually a fundamental principle or concept either missing from the debate or being misrepresented / misunderstood.

Recently, two seemingly unrelated issues have offered evidence of this epistemological dilemma: (1) prostitution, and (2) immigration.

On the prostitution front, the recent murder of sex worker Josie Glenn in London, Ontario, has renewed the local debate about prostitution and the sex trade. On one side of the debate are anti-sex feminists, as represented by Megan Walker of the London Abused Women’s Center. On the other side are pro-sex feminists as well as the women who work as sex workers (as represented by Safe Space).

Is prostitution best defined simply as “sex for money” or as something that is “intrinsically violent”? Are these views of prostitution contradictory or are they simply differing perspectives on the same activity? It’s an unusual divide: feminist against feminist; women against women.

Hate

Believing that those on the Left are merely people of good will with opposing or differing opinions on the role of government, many are falsely led to believe that the Left is interested in an honest political debate and democratic consensus.

But this is simply not so.

The Left hates freedom, hates capitalism, hates Western values, and of course, hates everything that’s Just Right.

For the political Left, hate is, and always has been, the prime motivator. For the Left, violence is an acceptable means of “expressing free speech.” For the Left, principles don’t matter. For the Left, “When persuasion fails, just use force.” Continue reading »
