It’s Probably Nothing

Flashback: Bio-warfare experts question why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China
In a table-top pandemic exercise at Johns Hopkins University last year, a pathogen based on the emerging Nipah virus was released by fictional extremists, killing 150 million people.

A less apocalyptic scenario mapped out by a blue-ribbon U.S. panel envisioned Nipah being dispersed by terrorists and claiming over 6,000 American lives.

Scientists from Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) have also said the highly lethal bug is a potential bio-weapon.

But this March that same lab shipped samples of the henipavirus family and of Ebola to China, which has long been suspected of running a secretive biological warfare (BW) program.
No way on earth this could be related: The World Health Organization says it will decide on Thursday whether to declare a global emergency over the outbreak of a new flu-like virus spreading from China.

Update.
BREAKING: Chinese officials say a 4th city, Xianning with a population of 2.5 million, will be put on lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus

Does any successful Conservative want the job, aside from MacKay? It's tough to find a single person for the Alberta-Saskatchewan base and suburban Ontario, but the other parties have similar challenges and manage to muddle through.

I am sure the Liebarrels, Conmen and NDPee will all look at this and think Canada too should be doing this.

Remember this is a minor outbreak of the common cold with a handful of cases that progressed to pneumonia.

Once again, the stupidity rises to the top.

Murderers getting new trials because Trudeau meddled

Quote:
A convicted killer has had his verdict overturned and a new trial ordered on what amounts to a technicality in how a new law was interpreted by the trial judge.

The scary part is, this isn’t the only case that this ruling may overturn — there are dozens of cases that could see legitimate verdicts thrown out.

And it’s all because the Trudeau government decided to mess with centuries of legal practice.

Pardeep Chouhan was convicted last October on first-degree murder charges.

According to evidence heard at trial by both judge and jury, Chouhan shot Maninder Sandhu multiple times in the yard of the trucking company they both worked at in Toronto.

Chouhan fled town after leaving Maninder for dead, and was arrested in Surrey, British Columbia a week later.

His retrial isn’t being ordered because of unreliable evidence or witnesses, but due to a change in how juries are selected.

In February 2018, a jury in Saskatchewan acquitted farmer Gerald Stanley in the death of Colten Boushie.

The 22 year-old Indigenous man had driven onto Stanley’s land after a day full of drinking.

Boushie and his friends were acting erratically.

They crashed into one of the Stanley vehicles, one of the group tried to start and presumably steal an ATV on the property and Boushie himself had a rifle with him.

Stanley shot and killed Boushie and was acquitted, but the acquittal was denounced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and then-Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould because they felt the jury was ‘too white.’

The pair promised to change the way juries were selected and abolish what were known as peremptory challenges — the ability to dismiss any prospective juror without having to give a reason.

This foolish change to a centuries-old practice of selecting jurors came into force on September 19, 2019, the same day Chouhan’s murder trial started.

The changes to the law were challenged by Chouhan’s lawyer as violating his client’s Charter right to a fair trial.

The presiding judge ruled the change in the law was not a Charter violation and proceeded with the case.

Yet now the Ontario Court of Appeal has ruled that the presiding judge violated Chouhan’s Charter right to a fair trial by applying the new law incorrectly.

In a unanimous ruling, the court said Chouhan should have been allowed to have a jury selection process that included peremptory challenges.

As many as six people in Canada being monitored over possible coronavirus signs, health minister says

Quote:
Federal Health Minister Patty Hajdu says several people in Canada are under observation for signs they may have contracted a coronavirus from China, but that the risk to Canadians remains low.

Hajdu said five or six people are being monitored in Canada, including at least one in Vancouver and another Quebec.

You do realize we are talking about the common cold. Wonder what vaccine the fearmongers will be pimping this time? Will it be for the Corona Virus mutation which was patented by Bill gates???

The population of Canada 2019 was 37.59 M

The population of Quebec 2019 was 8.485 M

Quebec as a percentage of Canada population is 22.6%

Quebec received 52% of all equalization payments in the past 40 years.

Real fair, isn't it?

Using that pie chart with population data, I get the following for population and equalization share.

Newfoundland 1.5%, 5%
Nova Scotia 2.6%, 11%
PEI 0.4%, 2%
New Brunswick 2.1%, 11%
Quebec 23.2%, 52%
Manitoba 3.6%, 12%

Which is the fairest of them all?
