More Pavilions At Folkfest

Quote:
In the past two years, populist governments have been elected (or populist parties have been given bigger roles in coalition governments) in Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Poland, Hungary and elsewhere. This has been because, unlike mainline parties, the populists have been willing to admit immigration is an issue.

[…]

[M]ost mainline conservatives won’t take up immigration for fear of being branded racists by mainline liberals and the “progressive” media, and for fear of missing out on the votes of enlarging ethnic communities.

That means voters who are worried about losing their jobs or having their cultures submerged by immigration have no traditional political outlet for their concerns. Disgruntled voters, then, fill the resulting leadership vacuum with anti-immigrant populists who overestimate the dangers in much the same way the mainliners underestimate them.
When the voters don’t like your policies, get new voters.

Canadians clash over Trudeau's carbon emissions tax in months before election

Quote:
Wading into treacherous political waters, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s plan to dramatically increase taxes on carbon emissions to combat climate change is dividing the country, pitting six of the provinces against Ottawa and setting the stage for a bitter and partisan federal election next year.
One Term Juthdin!

Possibly?

Ottawa considers gun control options with a handgun ban seen as costly and possibly ineffective


Quote:
The federal government is considering further restrictions on handguns but will stop short of an absolute ban, as the cost to buy back legally owned handguns is pegged as high as $2 billion, the Star has learned.

Escalating gun violence across the country, including Toronto, spurred calls for the federal Liberals to act. After public consultations, deliberations are now underway with a proposal being readied to take to cabinet early next year.

Among options under consideration are the imposition of tougher legal obligations on gun owners such as mandatory storage in secured lockers at a shooting range, not at home, and wider powers for police to preventively suspend a gun owner’s licence where there is a risk someone may be harmed. For instance if a health professional raises an alarm about an individual’s mental health, police would be able to act to suspend a licence in absence of a criminal charge or the registration of a criminal conviction.

A senior government official who was granted anonymity in order to discuss the debate underway within government, said no final decisions have been made about whether to propose a ban on handguns and assault weapons.

In the case of the latter, there is no precise definition in law of just what an assault weapon is, but the government wants stricter controls on “assault-style” firearms, said the source.
Bold mine.

Typical. The old, "We can't describe what they are but they scare the hell out of us." defence...

He Admires Their Basic Dictatorship

Quote:
This is awkward.
China has detained a second Canadian citizen this week, a Chinese government news site has confirmed. China’s state security bureau is holding Michael Spavor on suspicion of jeopardizing China’s national security. As NPR’s Rob Schmitz reports, the detentions appear to be retaliation for Canada’s arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.

Comments knock it out of the park. The first two set the tone perfectly...

It's not our want to hold her. Tell the USA to go pound salt and do their own dirty work and let her go home.

End of issue and two Canadian lives in retaliation matter more than Trump's USA.

Trump isn't behind this. He was actually looking to intervene on behalf of the CFO.

On December 8, 1966: The House of Commons passed the Medical Care Act by a vote of 177 to two, and generations of Canadians have had access to health care based on need, rather than their ability to pay.

Happy anniversary Medicare!
