Alberta Premier Mocks Biden for Refusing Canadian Oil: ‘You Don’t Need the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet to Patrol the Great Lakes’

“After the United States has spent hundreds of billions of dollars securing Persian Gulf energy over the last fifty years, it turns out that the solution to the challenge of energy security is your closest friend and ally!” he added.

One of the most frustrating aspects of the Biden administration — and Lord knows there are a lot of things that infuriate people about them — is the way the U.S. went from a net energy exporter to record high gas prices and a reliance on oil imported from other countries.

The administration knows exactly what it’s doing. The White House has acquiesced to the environmental lobby, and the end game is a push for “green energy” that’s both infeasible and expensive, at least right now. But that hasn’t stopped the drive to punish Americans who haven’t followed the administration’s flippant advice to buy an expensive electric vehicle.

In the meantime, until all you rubes go electric, the administration is looking to nations that are hostile to American values like Venezuela and Iran. If we must import our oil, why not get it from North America? I’ve written before about one Canadian official who has invited the U.S. to buy oil from our friendly northern neighbors, and this week the premier of one Canadian province (like the governor of a state) spoke to a U.S. Senate committee to make the same offer.

Canadian college’s tenure track position open only for ‘women, transgender, non-binary, or two-spirit’ people

The Ontario Human Rights Code allows for ‘special programs’ designed to assist underrepresented groups

The University of Waterloo announced an opening for a tenure track position last month that is only available to “qualified individuals who self-identify as women, transgender, non-binary, or two-spirit.”

The university’s Faculty of Environment is seeking applicants with experience in geography, earth science, environmental science, or sustainability to join as the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. 

Applicants are asked to fill out a self-identification form to ensure that they fall into one of the four categories that the job is open for, in order to “address the underrepresentation of individuals from equity deserving groups among our Canada Research Chairs.”

Tenured female economics professor is fired for saying Black Lives Matter ‘destroyed’ Mount Royal University in Calgary so much she ‘doesn’t recognize it’

Frances Widdowson proposed a date for the case against Mount Royal University. The academic confirmed she wanted to have it out with the institution in January. Widdowson was fired in December for saying BLM had ‘destroyed’ the university. Activists attacked her for being positive on Canada’s residential school program.

A tenured economics professor in Canada was fired for saying Black Lives Matter destroyed her university to such an extent she ‘doesn’t recognize it anymore’.

Frances Widdowson, who also taught justice and policy studies, was sacked from Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada last year.

The academic is now calling for an open arbitration hearing with the school to have it out with the institution next January – but bosses are yet to agree.

Widdowson was fired in December for saying BLM had destroyed the college to such an extent she ‘doesn’t recognize it anymore’.

Activists rounded on her and called her a racist for claiming Canada’s residential school program offered Indigenous children chances ‘they wouldn’t have received’.

A warning to citizens of Ontario and Canada: Bill 67, which purports to be nothing but an “anti-racist” bill, is in fact the most pernicious and dangerous piece of legislation that any Canadian government has attempted to put forward.

Breaking News: Justin Trudeau accuses Jewish Member of Parliament for Supporting Nazis (Video)

During question period the Conservative Party upheld their parliamentary obligation to hold the Prime Minister accountable for enacting the Emergencies Act. Instead of answering questions, he resorted to accusing Melissa Lantsman, a Jewish Member of Parliament and a descendant of Holocaust survivors, of supporting those waving swastikas. There were many on the opposition side of the House who immediately came to her defence. However, the Liberal benches were silent on the Prime Minister’s demeaning comments. Prime Minister Trudeau should immediately apologize and focus on unifying the nation rather than stoking divisions for political gain.

Ontario Attorney General freezes GiveSendGo donation distribution to Freedom Convoy

Another free speech suppression tactic.

The Ontario government is further being accused of suppressing civil liberties and the right to organize a protest after it has announced that it has successfully petitioned a court to freeze access to the millions of dollars donated to the Freedom Convoy through free speech fundraising platform GiveSendGo.

GiveSendGo is the alternative US-based fundraising platform that came to the rescue after GoFundMe pulled the plug on donations to the Freedom Convoy protesters who are campaigning for civil liberties in Ottawa and at multiple border crossings.

Far-Left Activist Identified as Suspect in Canada Protest Hit-and-Run

Winnipeg police have identified far-left activist David Alexander Zegarac as the driver accused of running down four anti-mandate protestors on Friday.

Zegarac, 42, was arrested Friday at around 10:30 p.m. after a Jeep struck a group of four protesters at Winnipeg’s Memorial Boulevard at around 9:30 p.m. that evening. Authorities temporarily hospitalized one of the injured protestors, while three others suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident.

The assembly was a peaceful protest against civil rights restrictions imposed in Canada in the name of stopping the Chinese coronavirus.

Police initially refused to comment on the identity of the driver of the vehicle but later stated that 42-year-old Zegarac would be looking at various charges including four counts of assault with a weapon, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, Zegarac has a history in Winnipeg’s punk music scene as part of the “political punk group” Brat Attack, whose lyrics feature far-left and anti-conservative themes.

Top Canadian museum to be imminently gutted in the name of ‘decolonization’

Tristin Hopper: With little notice and even less transparency, the Royal B.C. Museum is demolishing some of Canada’s most iconic exhibits with no idea of what’s going to replace them

The Royal British Columbia Museum has been repeatedly voted as one of Canada’s top cultural attractions by reviewers on TripAdvisor. It often ranks as one of the country’s most-visited museums and the Frommer’s travel guide refers to it as “hands down, one of the world’s best regional museums.”

And in less than two weeks, almost all of the Royal B.C. Museum’s most signature attractions are being abruptly ripped out in the name of “decolonization.”

The demolition contracts have already been signed. Starting on Jan. 2, crews will start taking crowbars to life-sized dioramas of a Peace River homestead, a salmon cannery, a Vancouver Island coal mine and HMS Discovery, the flagship of British explorer George Vancouver.
