In agreement there ^^^


Our Dear Leader has acolytes spreading the gospel.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

The Canadian flag has been at half mast for some time now in respect to Indigenous, but raising of the flag depends on their say so. Remembrance Day is fast approaching when the flag is lowered to half mast to respect our war dead.

Question is: when will the flag be raised and how do you even bring up the request in order to accommodate Remembrance Day?

This could lead to even stickier issues between Indigenous, the regular folk in Canada and the PMO.

[I would link this to the National Post article I read yesterday but have used up my freebies, maybe someone else can dig it out.]
What's the big deal? Flags are meaningless today. Borders mean less and less every year. Nations are so connected financially and politically that if one nation crashes - we all do. Flags don't stop this. There was a time when flags represented things - like borders - or groups of people. I remember learning when I was a kid doing civics and putting a flag up - that I was told a flag should never hit the ground. Go to any national sports event these days and you will find flags discarded on the ground. My cousin was in the navy on a ship with 5000 people years ago. And he was a signalman. But lights and flags are not needed as much these days because of tech. It makes you think about a lot of traditions that will become redundant as we keep moving forward in the 21st century.
Let's hope that your life never depends on that signalman that learned flags, semaphore, Morse code and signal lamps. When the power turns off tech does too. Time to buy a compass because you have no idea what direction you are headed in.

Prime Minister Trudeau Faces More Heat For Starting His Vacation On September 30

(ANNews) – More Indigenous leaders are criticizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his decision to take a family vacation on September 30, the inaugural National Truth and Reconciliation Day.

Trudeau and his family travelled to Tofino, B.C. rather than attend memorials on September 30, though he did attend a ceremony in Ottawa the previous night and spoke with eight residential school survivors over the phone the day of.

On Sept. 30, newly-elected Edmonton-Griesbach MP Blake Desjarlais, who is Metis and Two-Spirit called on Trudeau to “apologize to the millions of Canadians who actually did the hard work of remembering, listening & learning today.”

Native Women’s Association of Canada CEO Lynne Groulx said the prime minister’s words in support of reconciliation “ring incredibly hollow when Mr. Trudeau could not take the time that his own government set aside to reflect upon the tragedy of the Indian residential schools and instead chose to flit off to Tofino for a holiday.”

The Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs called Trudeau’s vacation an “arrogant dismissal” and “slap in the face” to residential school survivors. “If this event was before the election; Trudeau would be there on both knees,” it said in a statement.

Timmins — James Bay NDP MP Charlie Angus asked if anyone could imagine the prime minister going on a beach vacation on Remembrance Day, telling the Globe that Trudeau’s decision shows “very bad judgment.”

But...but...but...he did nothing wrong!!

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he regrets the mistake of travelling to British Columbia to join his vacationing family on a day meant to honour Indigenous survivors of Canada's residential schools system.

Trudeau's presence in Tofino, B.C., last Thursday came as a shock after his itinerary initially reported he was in Ottawa for private meetings.

A spokesman for Trudeau said he spent several hours on the phone with eight people who lived through residential schools, and denied that the prime minister had used the historic day to take a vacation.

Global News filmed the prime minister walking along a beach and the resulting video shows him declining to offer any comment.

Reports of his activities on that day sparked widespread backlash from Indigenous leaders, who felt it was disrespectful of him not to join other politicians in attending events held to honour the children who never came home.

Trudeau is acknowledging today that the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation was an important moment for all people, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to reflect and to remember.

Like a broken record for sure. Getting tiresome, hearing the same old apologies over and over for 'getting found out.'
There is nothing genuine here................Trudope knew from the get go this was a wrong decision, otherewise, why would it initially been covered with a deceptive itinerary?

Old news...........just quit already.

LILLEY: Trudeau isn't going anywhere

Is Justin Trudeau on his way out Prime Minister’s Office? Is the man who just won his third election really about to call it quits?

While I think the answer is no, people who are smarter than I am insist that Trudeau is headed for the exit. In the last few days, several commentators have said Trudeau is ready to depart the political stage.

Warren Kinsella has taken a look at Trudeau‘s behaviour over the last week, including the ill-fated surfer dude vacation and the fact Trudeau didn’t get a majority and decided the man wants out.

Kinsella calls it a silver lining and if it were to happen, I’d have to agree with him. But I just don’t see it happening.

In the Globe and Mail, columnist John Ibbitson writes that “a futile election, a lack of fresh initiatives and a disjointed economy all point to Mr. Trudeau’s departure before the next election.” Ibbitson, too, sees the Tofino trip as another indicator.

Brian Lilley and the sun?

There's some quality unbiased journalism if I've ever seen it.


In the week since TRD, Lilley tweeted about tofino 48 times and about reconciliation zero times.

No wonder conservatives listen to him like gospel, they all share the same bigotry.

Why, didn't O'Toole and his CPC have their chance to make their case to the Canadian people? They didn't get elected now did they? If they had anything better to offer, I'm thinking Canadians would have jumped at the chance for a change. That they elected the Liberals and JT says a lot about his opposition. They need to go back to the drawing board and offer something viable to the Canadian people instead of the same ole crapola. In the meanwhile, the Canadians prefer JT as the leader so get use to it for 4 more years.......just get over it.
