Canada’s medical assistance in dying program is a dangerous way of thinking

As a Dale Carnegie business coach, I often kicked off the New Year with January workshops on goal setting and stress reduction. Both workshops focused on helping people use their time and energy to get the best results possible. Both were predicated upon the principle that all accomplishment begins with thinking: “Our life is what our thoughts make it.”

This year, I am horrified to realize that some Canadians are now wondering whether they should include suicide in their plans.

Listening to Justin Trudeau, you could the idea that Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) is mainly around the idea of “choice.” Some Canadians are being given the opportunity to choose whether they want to live or to die. Canada won’t tell them which to choose; the choice is theirs. When you position it that way, it seems so helpful, respectful and dignified.

Landmark Lawsuit Slaps Legacy Media With Antitrust, First Amendment Claims for Censoring COVID-Related Content

A lawsuit filed January 10th by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and multiple other plaintiffs, alleges the Trusted News Initiative, a self-described “industry partnership” launched in March 2020 by several of the world’s largest news organizations, partnered with Big Tech firms to collectively censor online news.
“By censoring independent voices, what they’re doing is economic suppression. Antitrust is against trusts, it’s against monopolies, and what the TNI has done is essentially create a global media monopoly in the English language.”
–Mary Holland, CHD president and general counsel
In a live interview January 10th on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman and chief litigation counsel for Children’s Health Defense (CHD), announced that he and several other plaintiffs filed a groundbreaking novel lawsuit making antitrust and constitutional claims against legacy media outlets.
The lawsuit targets the Trusted News Initiative (TNI), a self-described “industry partnership” launched in March 2020 by several of the world’s largest news organizations, including the BBC, The Associated Press (AP), Reuters and The Washington Post — all of which are named as defendants in the lawsuit.

“I assumed this was a joke; it’s not” – study claims unvaxxed involved in more accidents

When I first saw articles covering the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study this week linking vaccine status with vehicle accidents rates, I thought I was reading a satirical parody from the Beaverton or the Babylon Bee.

But no – these were genuine articles, published by serious players like Sunnybrook Hospital and CTV. It’s really hard to view the straight-up news coverage without laughing, or vomiting.

The gist of all the words boils down to the idea that unvaccinated people cause more traffic accidents, likely because people who ignore government demands to get vaccinated are likely to ignore the rules of road, too.

Inconvenient facts about electric cars: politicians make us pay more to hurt the environment

The five inconvenient facts as outlined are:

Even if everyone drove an electric car, it would hardly make a dent in the fossil fuels we use.

Electric cars are not very “green.” Only 12 per cent of fuels used to charge electric cars comes from wind and solar power; the other 88 per cent is still generated by burning fossil fuels.

Mining requirements are massive: we must mine about 500,000 pounds of minerals and rock to obtain the materials required to manufacture one battery. It would take the world’s battery factories 400 years to build the $100 trillion dollars worth of batteries needed to heat Europe for one winter.

Fossil fuels are a much more efficient way to store energy than batteries: it takes a 1,000-pound battery to store as much energy stored in 80 pounds of fossil fuel.
When there is not enough electricity to both charge vehicles and power homes, there will be rationing.

Blacklock’s evicted by police from Canada’s parliament

Parliamentary Press Gallery executives accompanied by armed police on Friday evicted Blacklock’s. All questions were referred to a House of Commons employee. Blacklock’s said the eviction, first of its kind in the history of the National Press Building, was clear reprisal over its continued protests against media subsidies.

Eviction followed Gallery president Guillaume St-Pierre’s threat to “terminate” Blacklock’s membership. The eviction letter stated Blacklock’s managing editor Tom Korski was “impolite,” “disturbs the journalists around him” and “streams parliamentary committee hearings on his computer.”

Blacklock’s eviction: why does it matter to you?

Publishing Blacklock’s news article on the fact that Blacklock’s has been evicted from Ottawa’s parliamentary press gallery seems almost too surreal to believe.

As reported by Blacklock’s itself on December 5th, “Blacklock’s said the eviction, first of its kind in the history of the National Press Building, was a clear reprisal over its continued protests against media subsidies.”

“Eviction followed Gallery president Guillaume St-Pierre’s threat to ‘terminate’ Blacklock’s membership. The eviction letter stated Blacklock’s managing editor Tom Korski was ‘impolite,’ ‘disturbs the journalists around him’ and “streams parliamentary committee hearings on his computer.’”

Hypocritical Trudeau supports protests in China while denying the Freedom Convoy’s legitimacy

The Liberals are playing an interesting game as people in China protest against draconian ‘zero-Covid’ policies, and as Canadians draw parallels with what happened in our country during the Freedom Convoy.

They can’t accept the legitimacy of the concerns of the Freedom Convoy protestors, because that would imply the government had overreached in its imposition of vaccine mandates, and would make the use of the Emergencies Act look even worse.

But they also can’t openly side with the Chinese Communist Party regarding the protests in China, since the CCP is massively unpopular in Canada.

So, they have to pretend to be fully supportive of protests against authoritarian Covid measures, while also defending their invocation of the Emergencies Act.
