The Slow Eradication of Freedom of Speech in Canada – The Saad Truth (Video)

This was the taped lecture that I delivered remotely (i.e., it was played for the audience) in Toronto on September 10, 2017.

Politically Incorrect Films Take Center Stage at Toronto

From racially charged language in Eminem-produced rap comedy ‘Bodied’ to the boundary-pushing dark humor of Armando Iannucci’s ‘Death of Stalin,’ fest organizers are pushing buttons.

Prepare to be offended.

With a slew of films that veer far from polite discourse, this year’s Toronto Film Fest is shaping up to be the most politically incorrect in years. Among the films most likely to spark outrage are Joseph Kahn’s battle rap satire Bodied (think lots of racist language) and Armando Iannucci’s Soviet-era sendup The Death of Stalin (rape and murder jokes).

“The one thing that makes the movie very uncomfortable for people is I’m not picking a side. I’m roasting everything,” says Kahn of the Eminem-produced Bodied. “On some level, the movie aims to offend, but I hope that people realize that it’s aimed to start a discussion.”

Veep creator Iannucci also had a mandate when tackling scenes that will leave audiences far more squeamish than his HBO series, including poking fun at everything from abortion to genital mutilation.

“My rule [with Death of Stalin] was: If it’s not funny, it had better be interesting,” he says. “We don’t shy away from the fact that people out there lived or died according to the decisions made by these people in the Kremlin.”

Chinese state influence advances: Company with Communist Party ties eyes Grouse Mountain (Video)

“There’s a sense of alienation in our own city leaving people wondering Vancouver is essentially becoming a colony for the Chinese 1% to park their money in and inhabit.”

The Chinese takeover of Vancouver continues. Late last week it was reported that local ski hill and tourist destination, Grouse Mountain, will be sold to China Minsheng Investment Group, a company with strong ties to the Chinese government and the Communist party.

With the number of deals involving Chinese state controlled or connected companies buying Canadian businesses, some with national security risks ignored by Justin Trudeau and his cabinet, Canadians should be feeling a little uneasy.

By now, Vancouverites are noticing how quickly our city is changing as hundreds of millions of dollars in mainland Chinese money has been parked in our real estate market.

This creates havoc as wages and economic opportunity in the city aren’t keeping up with the increase in housing and rent prices due to this influx of foreign money.

Canadian landlord fined $12G for not taking shoes off in Muslim tenant’s home

“I have been victimized,” Alabi said. “They are using their religion to victimize me.”

A Canadian landlord who was fined $12,000 for wearing shoes in a Muslim tenant’s home said he felt “humiliated” by the harsh penalty levied by a national human rights tribunal.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, John Alabi, 52, of Brampton, recounted how he went above and beyond trying to accommodate the Egyptian-born couple who lived in the apartment for two months – just to be slapped with a steep fine for the shoe incident.

“I go beyond all that. I just see everybody as human beings like me. That’s why I took them in,” Alabi told the Toronto Sun in May. “We got along. And then all of a sudden I’m a racist?”

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario ordered Alabi in April to pay the tenants $6,000 each after he failed to take his shoes off in the bedroom were the couple prayed while he was showing the home to potential renters. The couple, who moved into first floor of the home in December 2014, terminated their lease on Feb. 28, 2015.

The Death of Canada. Prepare Yourself Accordingly – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

Question: “On this 150th Canadian anniversary, I asked myself the following question: what is Canada? It may be because I am from Québec, but I am unable to provide an answer. I concluded that Canada is, in essence, legal fiction. It seems to me to be a country that exists on paper, but lacks any truly identifiable culture or people that unmistakably separates it from the rest of the western world. As nationalism is currently gaining strength throughout the world, how will this affect Canada? Will it lead to our country gaining some sort of identity of its own? Or will it lead to a splintering as regional identities take precedence? What will be the result of Canada’s status of ‘first post-national state’ as the world goes through what will most likely be a major geopolitical shake-up in the coming decades?”

The Omar Khadr Case: Pay Up Canada and Apologize! – The Saad Truth (Video)

Look at that sweet and innocent Canadian child! I briefly comment on the recent judgment regarding the Khadr case and I read a letter that was sent to Justin Trudeau from a Middle Eastern Canadian immigrant.

Video: Indigenous Activists Go On Tirade After White Reporter Asks Simple Question

A group of female Indigenous demonstrators viciously yelled at a white reporter after she asked if Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was to blame for missing First Nation teenagers.

In a June 29 press conference, a reporter identified by Global News as CBC’s Julie Van Dusen asked family members of missing and murdered Indigenous women if the self-proclaimed feminist prime minister had done more for Indigenous Canadians than his conservative predecessor, Stephen Harper.

“Excuse me?” said Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail, an advocate for Indigenous rights. “Excuse me, did I just hear you correctly?”

When Van Dusen tried to follow up, Wabano-Iahtail and the group’s elder, Sophie McKeown, shouted over her.

“Stop right now. You do not speak to us that way,” said McKeown.

As Van Dusen continued trying to defend her question, she was met with screams of “stop it” and “we don’t want you here.”

“It’s a simple question and I’m looking for an answer,” replied Van Dusen.

“Step out!” repeated Wabano-Iahtail. “I don’t want to hear from you! You need to stop!”

Rex Murphy: Celebrating ‘diversity’ will only divide us, but celebrating Canada’s unity keeps us strong

Identity politics aligns with diversity, and it is emphatically not our strength. Identity politics is a flight from commonality and unity.

The celebration of Canada’s 150th should be an excellent time to mildly parse a few of our national values, as the current phrase has it. Particularly the elevation of “diversity” as the king and signature of our ways and being.

Justin Trudeau is fond of the aphorism that diversity is our strength. That’s far too much to claim. There are many things, processes or ideas that could equally claim the same predicate. “Education is our strength” could easily be seen as an even stronger motto. For is it not true that a good education seeds the mind for the healthy tolerance that enables diversity in the first place?

A healthy economy being our strength is another very defensible observation. What is more likely to sharpen social and political tensions than a failing economy? For the most current illustration of this obvious point, look at Venezuela, where its collapsed socialist economy pushes the country to the edge of civil war.

Or we could equally say the land is our strength. Its beauty, resources, scope and range of Canadian nature, combined with our sense of communion with the land, counts as something inexpressibly but undeniably special. Even the Liberal party has saluted the land as a patriotic bond. Not to score political points on our anniversary day, but did not the Liberals run a whole election campaign—that of 1972—on the very motto, “The Land is Strong.”
