Toronto 2010 G20 summit report released

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Below is a link to the full text of Judge Morden’s report on the disgusting spectacle put on by the Toronto Police in June 2010, with over 1,000 civilians arrested and held, the great majority of whom were not charged with anything.  Dozens of stores were trashed downtown, and four police cruisers were set on fire and destroyed.


Elliot Lake and our ‘unwritten contract’ with society

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Elliot Lake is a small community in Ontario on the North shore of Georgian Bay, above Manitoulin, the largest fresh-water island in the world.  It is located between Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury, and has a population of some 11,000.  It recently suffered a disaster as part of the rooftop parking area of its only shopping mall collapsed into a food court below. 


A bleak outlook for free speech in Ontario?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

A large part of society’s problem with LGBT people right now, as I see it, is that they are not satisfied with tolerance, or even acceptance.  They demand full-fledged approval, and whoever fails to give it to them can be mercilessly hounded, as Toronto Mayor Rob Ford can undoubtedly attest.


The American election: Big money trumps democracy

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

“(Sheldon Adelson is) the perfect illustration of the squalid state of political money, spending sums greater than any political donation in history to advance his personal, ideological and financial agenda, which is wildly at odds with the nation’s needs… Mr. Adelson has made it clear he will fully exploit the anything-goes world created by the federal courts to donate a “limitless” portion of his $25 billion fortune to defeat the president and as many Democrats as he can take down.” – New York Times.


Obtuse Europeans should be ‘undermined’ – Bilderberger

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Peter Sutherland arrogantly proclaims that the European Union should seek to “undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states, and uses the disproved notion that migration is a “crucial dynamic for economic growth” in some EU nations “however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens of those states.”

Canada’s pathetic obeisance to Israel

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Canadian governmental grovelling to Israel is reaching the point of insanity, let alone criminality, in my humble opinion.  Canada is a nation whose professional armed forces, while of the highest calibre, are minimal.  And, of course, we have no nuclear weapons.  And yet, how proud we are to offer support to a country whose armed forces outnumber ours many times over, and which possesses more nuclear weapons than the British!


Duluth University’s vicious attack on ‘White privilege’

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

This is the second ‘Un-Fair Campaign’ in Duluth, to my knowledge.  The first occurred early in 2011, and was organised at least in part by Duluth’s Mayor.  See my post “”Duluth, Minnesota: White-bashing on steroids” here


Intrusive school ‘survey’ disturbs students in Scarborough

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

“One example is one of the questions ‘I’m worried about my future’… ‘My daughter wasn’t but she is now’… She asked me ‘Should I be worried about my future?’” – Mother of 12 year-old student.  “…the survey was similar to a detailed psychological assessment.” – Mother and social worker.


Internet censorship efforts becoming more blatant

Monday, June 18th, 2012

“(Google) said it had seen a troubling increase in (government) requests to remove political content.  Many of these requests came from western democracies not typically associated with censorship.”
