David Knight Legg: Chrystia Freeland — our soft-on-terror deputy PM

On Jan. 8, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland evaded a question about why Canada hasn’t designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IGRC) as a terrorist organization. The question was being asked on the fourth anniversary of the IRGC’s murder of 55 Canadians aboard Flight PS752, and in the middle of a war the IRGC is facilitating across the Middle East. Before the journalist could ask again, he was arrested, which was caught on film and quickly became an international incident with millions of views.

It was another moment of evasiveness and mixed messages from a government struggling to define itself as a reliable ally during a time of war and terror overseas. The low point for Canadians was last December, when Hamas publicly thanked our government for opposing Israel and the United States by voting for a ceasefire resolution at the United Nations. A good time to start clarifying your policies on terror is when a sadistic Iran-backed terror network starts publicly thanking you for your help.

This government plays word games that our enemies and allies see through. Freeland has called the IRGC a “terrorist organization” in the past, but it has to be formally designated as such for it to matter. Unfortunately, troubling decisions followed by evasive language is the hallmark of Freeland’s response to terror.

In 2017, Freeland, who was serving as foreign affairs minister, and then-public safety minister Ralph Goodale co-authored an apology letter to convicted al-Qaida terrorist Omar Khadr, and handed him a cheque for $10.5 million.

Today's National Post on Freeland.
Resign or just go live in Ukraine.
Oh gosh, there’s still much MORE that Mr Legg had to say about the legacy of Freeloader and her Master, the Putz. The Khadr fiasco still makes me angry
In 2017, Freeland, who was serving as foreign affairs minister, and then-public safety minister Ralph Goodale co-authored an apology letter to convicted al-Qaida terrorist Omar Khadr, and handed him a cheque for $10.5 million.
Khadr had been arrested in Afghanistan after killing U.S. Sgt. Christopher Speer, in a battle where his own life was saved by U.S. army medics. He was held in Guantanamo Bay until the Harper government repatriated him in 2012. In 2015, the Harper government fought a court order that Khadr be released on bail, but the Liberals dropped that appeal after they came to power later that year.

Then, instead of fighting Khadr in court, they made the decision to replace a pending court process — where a judge would have decided on Khadr’s claim — with their own ministerial discretion to voluntarily pay Khadr a huge sum of money. That extraordinary, voluntary decision — to pay a massive sum and apologize to a terrorist who fought against Canadians — and the precedent it set for terrorists in Canada, still requires an explanation.
From there, it just gets worse
Then, in February 2022, Freeland decided to invoke measures under a national state of emergency (a decision that was recently deemed “unreasonable” by the Federal Court) that treated the Freedom Convoy similar to terrorists and organized criminals.
Under the emergency measures, crowdfunding platforms were required to report to FINTRAC — a financial intelligence agency intended to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. Banks were also authorized to freeze the accounts of anyone the government named, overriding normal legal processes.
This carried three civil rights problems.

First, there were obvious alternatives: Canada has laws to deal with unruly protesters causing mischief or committing acts of violence. Second, the truckers clearly weren’t terrorists. They posed no immediate threat to fellow Canadians and, unlike some current protesters, never hid their faces or shouted hateful ethnic and religious slurs at fellow Canadians

…snip

Third, the application was over-broad. Banks were compelled to freeze accounts without the usual legal constraint of being innocent until proven guilty. Yet, at her press conference on Feb. 17, 2022, Freeland highlighted the fact that these rules gave her department newfound powers to threaten anyone on their list of protesters and donors with financial ruin. She punctuated this fact by showing journalists the list and stating that she and the prime minister had personally reviewed it.

FINTRAC remains Freeland’s responsibility. Yet its actual purpose — to track down and eliminate terrorist and transnational criminal syndicates in Canada — has floundered on her watch. According to Garry Clement, the former head of the RCMP’s financial crimes unit, our Five Eyes intelligence allies — the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand — have “expressed real frustration” with Canadian incompetence in finding and removing illicit funding networks, which has made Canada a haven for international terror and criminal syndicates

In a time of terror and war, it is increasingly problematic for government ministers to walk away from questions about the IRGC — or about press freedoms, Omar Khadr, protesters, FINTRAC or its use of the Emergencies Act. Chrystia Freeland is the deputy prime minister. Her decisions on terror continue to define our country in the eyes of the world. It’s past time for her to explain to Canadians and the rest of the world what she is thinking.

That extraordinary, voluntary decision — to pay a massive sum and apologize to a terrorist who fought against Canadians — and the precedent it set for terrorists in Canada, still requires an explanation.
It seems that the reporter here, although doing a great job of recalling the Khadr fiasco, forgot that after handing over the $10.5 Million payout to Khadr, “fixed” it so that the widow and child in USA could not go after recompense from Khadr. In effect, they would never see a dime of the handsome payout to Khadr for murdering her husband and child’s father.

Then, without a care in the world, Putzy jumped into our jet for a rush trip to Ireland. To this day, no one knows what he was doing there, and for that matter, why he ever came back.

This egregious incident still gets under my skin. One must remember that this happened very early on in the Putz’s Reign of Terror, when some Cdn peeps were so proud that they had selfies with this POS

After that, he continued being an ongoing embarrassment to Canada over the last 8 years.

Time for her to resign and be charged.

Activists storm Canada finance minister's office demanding climate laws for banks

TORONTO (Reuters) - Climate activists barged into Canadian Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland's Toronto office on Thursday demanding the government announce climate-related regulation for banks in its 2024 budget.

Greenpeace activists wearing blue jumpsuits and carrying sleeping bags staged a sit-in protest in Freeland's office, while the minister was not in her office.

Greenpeace Canada's senior energy strategist Keith Stewart said in a letter addressed to Freeland that the organization is concerned that the federal government is delaying or rolling back long-promised climate policies and not advancing new ones to achieve the Liberal government's 2050 net zero goals.

Freeland's schedule that shows she is holding a series of pre-budget meetings in Toronto. Her office was not immediately available for comment.
The letter also demanded no more delays or "watering down of the regulations" related to oil and gas emissions and the phase-out of fossil fuel-powered cars and light trucks by 2035.

Canada's largest banks have been accused of "greenwashing" by some environmental groups and investors who say initiatives like sustainability-linked financing (SLF) are merely used for pretence of a move towards a lower carbon footprint.

I fail to understand what you are saying here, GB, as you want the kooky environmentalists to do hard time for demanding more from Freeloader, but the way I see it is…they are exactly the same, the kooks and Chrystia.

Why not insist that BOTH do hard time? I do.

Too funny, and the fact is she has absolutely zero education, proven abilities or professionalism linked to finance. She is a token of trudeaus, "its 2015" thing. She has absolutely zero ability or claim to be able to run a countries finances.

Freeland completed a bachelor's degree at Harvard University, studying Russian history and literature before earning a master's degree in Slavonic studies from the University of Oxford. She worked as a journalist in Ukraine and eventually held editorial positions at the Financial Times,

Freeland pledges pharmacare deal won't jeopardize federal finances

WARSAW, Poland — Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland says pharmacare will not jeopardize Canada's fiscal standing as the federal government intends to abide by the spending rules it pledged in the fall.

The NDP confirmed on Friday that it reached a deal on pharmacare with the Liberals, which would allow every Canadian with a health card to access free diabetes medication and birth control.

The coverage is to be included in the first piece of a national pharmacare program — a key pillar of the supply-and-confidence agreement between the two parties — with legislation expected to be introduced in the House of Commons this week.

Speaking to reporters at a Polish military base today, Freeland says her government is committed to investing in Canadians while remaining fiscally responsible, which means abiding by the spending rules it set out in the fall economic statement.
The federal government set out a goal to keep deficits below one per cent of GDP beginning in 2026-27 and to maintain the current fiscal year’s deficit at or below the spring budget projection of $40.1 billion.

It's also aiming to lower the debt-to-GDP ratio in 2024-25 relative to the projection in the fall economic statement.

Health Minister Mark Holland has raised the cost of a future pharmacare program repeatedly as negotiations appeared to stall earlier this year.

And under Freeland, the deficit just keeps ballooning....
Expect $7B higher federal deficit, slower growth for Canadian economy: PBO report

OTTAWA — A year of sluggish growth and a significantly bigger deficit from Ottawa are latest projections from the parliamentary budget officer.

The Parliamentary Budget Office released its economic and fiscal outlook Tuesday, just a day after Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland announced she would be presenting her 2024 budget on April 16. The PBO forecasts that the government will run a $46.8-billion deficit this year, higher than the $40.1 billion the Liberals forecast in the fall. Last year’s deficit was $24 billion.

The PBO also predicts deficits will be higher than Liberal projections for the next several years as a mixture of higher program spending and higher debt charges mount on the government’s books.
Parliamentary Budget Officer Yves Giroux said he doesn’t see balanced budgets in the near future, although he said the government appears to be moving gradually in the right direction over the next five years.

“It certainly does not suggest that we are returning to balanced budgets, probably smaller deficits than what we have seen. Although, again, it’ll depend on how much new spending is in the government’s budget when it’s tabled next month,” he said.

Giroux said his estimates also don’t account for spending on the national pharmacare legislation the government announced last week or the new Canada Disability Benefit, which has passed the House of Commons. Nor does it account for any increase in defence spending, which the government is under increasing pressure to fund.

I laughed. Stopped. Then started laughing again!

Can anyone in their right mind believe that an over-run of 47 Billion, and not even adding in Pharmacare, Defence or Disability, PLUS all the other ‘surprise’ drop-offs of our money to wherever Putz chooses….mark my words here….the deficit spending will be DOUBLE what Putz&Co is yelping now. Watch and see!

By the time we kick this arzzehole back into drama class, he will have put 2 Trillion dollars indebtedness onto our ledger.
