“It is not anti-immigration and anti-refugee to be against people breaking in to our nation to take from it… there might be as many as 250,000 undocumented foreigners in Toronto using health, education, housing and transportation services… While we are told we don’t have the money for social services and infrastructure, and our social housing is falling apart, (Toronto Mayor John) Tory tells us an estimated 250,000 people operating outside the law have a right to your tax dollars… Undocumented people are to immigration, what shoplifting is to shopping.” – Jerry Agar, “Why do we pay for illegal immigrants?” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 6th, 2017.

“Instead of seeing the plus-side of having an ambassador to Canada who has governed an entire neighbouring state, and who was the vice-presidential candidate for respected Republican Sen. John McCain’s run for the White House in 2008, progressives from all platforms decided their first response would be to denigrate and ridicule her… We are supposed to believe, instead, that someone can become a state governor and vice-presidential candidate, and later make upwards of $12 million from books and speeches, by being both stupid and a novelty.” – Mark Bonokoski, “Sarah Palin for U.S. Ambassador to Canada? You betcha!” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 9th, 2017.

“Only one person in American politics is more polarizing than Sarah Palin – and he’s now in the White House… She is a hunting rifle-toting Alaskan beauty pageant queen with a streak of white trash and a tricky relationship with the English language. She’s Trump in a skirt. She backed him in the primaries.” – Mike Strobel, “Trudeaus, Palin can go moose-hunting” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 9th, 2017.

“Len produced several reports in the early 2000s for the Canada Pension Plan Review Board, which heard appeals from rulings concerning CPP entitlements (and he) proposed a code of national standards that was accepted in full but was discarded when the government changed and the goal of fairness was replaced by one of keeping payouts as low as possible. Leonard is survived by his lifelong companion and wife, Louise Dulude, who wrote the first major Canadian report on Women and Poverty for the National Council of Welfare.” – Extract from the obituary of Leonard Shifrin, Toronto Sun, February 11th, 2017.

“Judy Garland was reportedly groped by some of the Munchkins during the filming of The Wizard Of Oz, her ex-husband Sid Luft has alleged in a new book… ‘They would make Judy’s life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress… They thought they could get away with anything because they were so small’… Rumours about the Munchkin actors’ bad behaviour have been circulating Hollywood for decades, with Garland detailing it during an interview in 1967. She told an interviewer, ‘They were little drunks… They got smashed every night, and they picked them up in butterfly nets’.” – wenn.com. “Judy Garland was groped by a Munchkin on the set of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ a new book alleges” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 8th, 2017.
