Couple calls on Ontario government to ban Indigenous logos, mascots in schools

 

"We are asking that they ban all offensive First Nations logos and names from all Ontario schools as the effects of these logos/names are harmful to our children. This also includes a total ban of all clothing/accessories that bear these logos," Courchene wrote on Facebook.

Considering it is the intention of these organizations to hold up these logo's as something good, even heroic , you will have serious difficulty demonstrating that the logo's are racist or insulting.

DVD with tax information of 28,000 Yukoners lost, says Canada Revenue Agency

 

 (Population of Yukon is 37 000 , so that's basically all the tax payers)


This is the major problem with collecting information you don't really need. It gets stolen and winds up on the dark net and then you find out next year when the bill collectors come calling that you have two houses and three cars you never knew about and everybody wants to be paid in full right now. 

Plus you can no longer actually buy a house or car because the record shows you already have some and ripped off the crediters (or the scammers did in your name).

Lets not even start down the road of the NSA wanting to build a profile on every human being on the planet, and how they have laws specifically targetting non-USA Citizens who have never set foot in the USA (Julian Assange is the poster child for this)

Agile bat-shaped robot may change the face of drones 


WASHINGTON — Holy drone, Batman! Mechanical masterminds have spawned the Bat Bot, a soaring, sweeping and diving robot that may eventually fly circles around other drones.

Because it mimics the unique and more flexible way bats fly, this three-ounce prototype could do a better and safer job getting into disaster sites and...

Owl swoops in , grabs and wrecks the three ounce drone , flies away.
(do a search for "what eats bats" owls are high on the list)

'I want someone to take my pain': Woman set on fire by husband denied home insurance payout

 What kind of happy horse crap is this story anyways ? It says right there in the title someone set the house (and her) on fire deliberately. No insurance company is going to pay for an act of arson. 

Yet this article goes on and on about how evil the corperation is for not doing so. 

Yeah right. You want to burn down half the city ? Start paying people for committing arson and it will burn real quick. 

No thank you. 


 

Unfair Trade Practices

U.S. announces duties up to 24 per cent on Canadian softwood lumber

 

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced late Monday it will impose “countervailing duties” of up to 24 per cent on Canadian softwood lumber, opening a new round in the long-running trade dispute.
The Department said it had “preliminarily determined that exporters of softwood lumber from Canada received countervailable subsidies of 3.02 per cent to 24.12 per cent.”
“As a result of today’s determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits based on these preliminary rates,” it said.

...
Transport Minister Marc Garneau, who chairs the cabinet committee on Canada-U.S. relations, said earlier that Canada has always acted fairly -- which has been proven repeatedly in trade rulings.

 An obvious political move.
They lost the last couple of rulings when they accused Canada of this , but the American Corperations cleaned up in the mean time, and Canadian corperations started going belly up as the court cases dragged on for years before they were exonerated. Those that were still around, that is.

The Free Trade agreement is worthless in the face of such tactics. Tear it up and kick all the american corperations out.

Time to start making all our stuff with 3D printers.
Who the heck wants an american car or computer anyways ? Now that NSA is drafting every american corperation into the intelligence game ? There have been reports of them trying to use new model computerized cars as "untraceable" assassination tools, and everyone knows Google is in bed with the NSA ,whether they like it or not.

And that doesn't even begin to cover the issue of "illegal immigrant labour" helping out everywhere in the american economy. You think they actually declared that some illegal helped them produce that product cheaper ? I don't think so.

American has been ripping off the world for decades. 

Kick 'em all out.

Thanks for nothing, Wynne !

Three Ontario cities to test basic income pilot project

 

HAMILTON  - Ontario is launching a basic income pilot project this spring, aimed at providing financial stability for low-income residents in a time of precarious work and a changing economy.

Premier Kathleen Wynne announced the details of the province’s three-year basic income project during a speech in Hamilton Monday.

...

The pilot will launch in the Hamilton area — including in Brantford, and Brant County — and the Thunder Bay-area late this spring, and in Lindsay this fall, with a minimum payment of nearly $17,000 for an eligible single person


 In this age where rent controls have been discarded, EVERY  land lord in Ontario would now like to thank Kathleen Wynne , premier of ontario , for giving people more money.

And all rents in those target cities just DOUBLED.

Thank you so much ! Here's my contribution to your election fund to make sure you don't decide to undo those rent increases.

PS: Every land lord outside of those cities is pushing up the rent as well , by as much as they think they can get away with , and then funding organizations demanding you give everyone more money in their cities as well.

Tell the truth, you did this on purpose because it means more money in your political war chest, didn't you ?
