Canadian Politics: Boring beyond Belief, or just Dull and Tedious?

Recommended Posts

If she was a white supremist why would she be speaking to a group of Bangladeshi minorities that have been displaced in their own country?

I keep hoping that "mass media" would someday bring all English speaking peoples together on vowels. Canadians and Minnesotans say, 'aboot' when they mean to say "about." And I am sure Americans mispronounce a lot of words too. On the Australian show "Doctor Blake Mysteries," which is now unfortunately cancelled he would say  "yeah-ess" when he said "yes." Weird. A whole extra syllable for a simple word.

Canada, Western allies rebuke Russia over alleged global hacking campaign
 

Quote

[...] Western allies including Canada strongly denounced Russia Thursday for a campaign of computer hacking they say was aimed at undermining democracies and which targeted institutions from sports anti-doping bodies to the United Nations' chemical weapons watchdog.

The United States announced it had indicted seven Russian intelligence officers for conspiring to commit cyberespionage and steal data in a bid to delegitimize international anti-doping organizations and to expose officials who revealed a Russian state-sponsored athlete doping program.

In some of the strongest language aimed at Moscow since the Cold War, Britain said Russia had become a “pariah state.” The United States said Moscow must be made to pay the price for its actions. And their allies around the world issued stark assessments of what they described as a campaign of hacking by Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency.

The Canadian government joined in the condemnation and also publicly acknowledged that Russian military intelligence in 2016 hacked into the database of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), a group that polices the use of illegal performance enhancements by athletes. This incident has been previously reported but Canada had not offered any extensive public comment about it before.

Earlier Thursday, the Dutch government revealed that the Russian military’s GRU intelligence arm had tried to use cybertools to gain access to the computer networks of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the global chemical weapons watchdog. The Netherlands military said that in April four Russian intelligence officers had set up specialized equipment near the watchdog’s offices in The Hague and were preparing to hack its network.

Ottawa in Thursday’s statement said it strongly believes Moscow was behind this Dutch incident. “The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the GRU was responsible for this attempt," the government said. Canada is a member of the OPCW and currently sits on its executive council.

The Russian embassy in Canada rejected the criticism from Western countries, saying the accusations were lies designed to distract the populations of NATO countries. [...]

Marc,

I certainly am.

At least she is getting her message out via the alt media. The gatekeepers are doing their damndest to shut down her voice. They don't want to refute her and let people choose the best argument. They want to silence her and make people accept their arguments because none other are presented in public.

That's a shit-ass way to win an argument.

And it can't last for long in the modern Internet world. God knows they are trying, but they are going to lose in the short term, not the long term like it used to be when gatekeepers had the power to make that happen.

Goldy is scaring the crap out of them. Jules quipped above that Alex Jones is in love with her. What's not evident is that Alex's audience is in love with her. And his audience is huuuuuuuge. 

The thing I personally love about Goldy is that she is everywhere in the alt universe, no matter how small. She goes to all of them she can get to and always gives it her best shot, her deepest passion and her intellectual rigor.

I would love to see her win.

She's the elitists' worst nightmare.

Young, beautiful, persuasive, passionate, intelligent, moral, and strikes the right balance between pro-Canadian and pro-individual, meaning anti-globalist to the core.

Michael

Dagny Taggart , Mayor of Toronto !

A solid bit of letting it all hang out ... for Faith. "Why wouldn't they let her debate?" '#TheLeft Knows. Faith is what Toronto wants. Look, you are being manipulated by your own press. Fucking corporate welfare.'  A lot of points to flesh out Faith's abstract appeal.

Faith is celebrating all the chickens in her basket!

Look at that sample ballot. Paper!  Doesn't that make you envious? (don't worry, there are special balloting procedures for the unsighted and/or needing assistance).  I am estimating the turnout to be something like ... just south of a million votes cast.  I expect Faith will make history if she comes in third behind the two Deep State losers. If she attracts more votes than that last third-place candidate in 2014 (~4K) she will make history.  And we all like history, don't we?

Are her lips natural? They look injected. Has this been an issue up dere in Canada, eh? I know that there was a furor over Trudeau's alleged fake eyebrow, but what aboot Faith's lips? Was the judge's real reason for ruling against her that he personally just doesn't like porn star lips?

This kind of throws a kink in the left’s narrative that she is a white supremist.  The neo nazis are calling her a Zionist alt right infiltrator lol.

I'd drool if the lips didn't look fake. She's a cutie, but the lips are too much. Maybe they're real, but I still doubt it. And I don't find them attractive, either way.

Jules,

Here's a little bit more on Faith Goldy, from yesterday.

The Canadian censors are creating the monster that will ultimately devour them.

Faith is no more a white supremacist than I am.

She does sound an awful lot like President Trump, though.

:) 

And they are attacking her with everything they've got.

btw - I don't know the size of Alex Jones's audience in Canada, but it's still huge here in the US. Alt social media sites are growing by leaps and bounds because he got thrown off the big tech sites like Facebook and Twitter. Even still, notice this video I posted is on YouTube. :)

Regardless of whether she wins or loses the mayoral election I’m thinking she will move up to provincial or federal politics.  The left is shitting their pants over her and don’t know what to do about her.

An in-depth BBC story presaging the unveiling of 'legalized' marijuana in Canada.  Not mentioned in the Joshua Cheetham story is that the government is moving to pardon all simple possession convictions.

Canada cannabis legalization: ‘We know the world is watching’

Canada Post is in charge (in BC) of delivering products purchased online.  Which means never seeing a 'dealer' ever again.

My screenshot was of an 'as if' order page. I don't know if the Landrace Sativa would live up to its price. I don't even know what AAA BC bud actually is.

But anyway, a connoisseur could tell us. Ask an Albertan, I guess.  

The facts as I collect them here are that the medical marijuana laws and City of Vancouver 'no-harm no foul' laissez-faire** allowed big ass technically-sound (and thus profitable) suppliers to get in the game early in BC.  The regulatory scheme is BC Liberal++NDP, in that weird conservative economic-social-libertarian hybrid we get here once an issue has been wrestled to the ground. The wresting of potential profits from the gangs by the medical pot industry is kind of fun, but the permitting was done with as much transparency as could be mustered. 

The regime in BC was 'pay attention' to all the pioneer US states, make sure the banking industry was on board so the illegal taint could be removed from pot profits, fit supplies to demand, devolve the 'placement' to individual districts and municipalities. 

-- Quebec got all tight-assed about their regime, allowing only Government Liquor Pot stores. And Ontario is behind by contrast since they didn't get their shit together on all their distribution and sales and permitting regime. Their online sales regime, however, turned on at the same time as BC's so all the Mackenzie Brothers can get loaded by mail.

Get a load of this video -- this is how THC Biomed gets their little guys girls to homes. These folks were prepared.  This is how  your four legal  plants come in the mail from the vineyards potfields in Kelowna.

It will be interesting to peek over garden fences in Chilliwack over the next year, to see if people take advantage of this.  I'd say all the Lower Mainland is a healthy market, even out here.  Maybe especially out here, as the soil layer in these parts is forty feet, alluvial soils from the glacial valley south of the plain.

-- the first shop that opened for straightforward sales here was on First Nations reserve land last year. They operated for a month or two until the RCMP raided them and a later 'medical' outlet also on reserve land. The first straight-sales one re-opened, did not get raided, closed itself and advertizes it's just waiting till the $10,000.00 fee cheque clears and the permitting/zoning/inspection/safety plan is all tickity-boo.

This is William Scherk, your Pot Correspondent, reporting from Vedder Crossing.

______________________

** Vancouver has a persistent hard drug problem and a pocket of despair and poverty-industry grifters called the Downtown Eastside. It is picturesque with thoroughly fucked-up people kind of concentrated in one place. Of later years it has been slightly encroached upon and witnessed insertions of hipster culture, Vancouver-style, which is neither here nor there.

The city had a conservative Mayor who during his two terms engineered a buy-in from the city police to adopt a more medical model. Busts of junkie-users ceased. The move to 'reduce harm' attracted the idealists and poverty-industry grifters and entrepreneurs.

The city also took two steps back and more or less got the city police to dictate the 'regulatory regime' on marijuana.  The tide of police opinion across Canada was to almost never charge and try a person for simple possession. It retreated to a Don't Bring Your Horse Into The Beer Parlour kind of law on the books.

So, there sprouted the independent contractor approach via 'medical marijuana.'  The federal Conservatives had finally unrolled its revised medical marijuana law, having learned from their mistakes (such as a deep underground marijuana plantation monopoly attempt I kid you not), which left enforcement in the hands of local .... police. Who in Vancouver didn't give a shit about medical marijuana as long as you had the 'card' ... since they already didn't give a shit about your bag, basically, a social corner was turned. 

So sprouted the forest of 'dispensaries' and the 'vape' lounges and 'marijuana museum' and 'seed culture' businesses. The standout here is the New Amsterdam Cafe, a compromise 'tolerated' business that broke all the laws.  There between the hours of nine to five you could only vape. After five, you buy an item, you get blasted on whatever you brought in, you go on your way. Every pothead on earth has dreamed of this place.

I have no idea what the new law means for those other businesses. Basically, all the weird dispenseries will close/re-open.  Since you can get it in the mail at rock-bottom 'compassion' prices, what's the point?  We move on to the survival of the fittest.

I took a look at the New Amsterdam's site. They sell everything but pot and pot products. And they obviously think they well continue to do roaring business.  They opened their 'safe' space in 2000.  Behind each window is a lounge or 'safe-space' ... or commercial hemp hosiery and etcetera outlet.

Jules,

Not really.

Look how many voted for Faith despite total collusion among the elitists in banning her from every public form of exposure. Not to mention this is her first time out. Coming in third in that context is a badge of honor and one hell of an achievement.

Faith is just getting started.

I will be helping her in what little I can as her star ascends.

If for nothing else, just to piss off William.

Jonathan,

I'm damaged goods. What can I say? I'm a Class A felon and repeat offender on thought crimes.

:) 

I don't fit in with the way the elitists try to organize society. I think they are rotten and I don't want to rot with them.

At least, I don't get shot or sent to a reeducation camp for thinking differently than their propagandists want me to. With a qualifier. At least not yet...
