In Senegal, homosexual activity is criminalized. While standing next to Trudeau, Sall doubled down on his stance that his country would not accept any changes to its current laws and that homosexuality or Pride parades would not be accepted.

Sall's comments made front-page news in that country, while Trudeau touted that Canada was able to secure Senegal's vote for the coveted UN Security Council seat during that visit.


Junior is really driving for that seat lol

Always a pleasure when the Honourable Justin Trudeau gets involved. I wonder if he will get called out on his blackface escapades.

Teachers to be paid $12K to recruit and manage students under government program with WE Charity

I'm not sure it's safe to have these students out working right now but when it is, I'm all for doing something to get them off their video games.

The ol sole-source contract trick.


Records show charity closely linked to Trudeau has received multiple sole-source contracts from Liberal government
Quote
According to the government’s online database of government contracts, WE Charity has received five federal contracts worth a total of $120,000 since March 2017. Four of the five contracts have been in the last 15 months, with the most recent — and largest, until now, at $40,000 — dated January 2020.

https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/records-show-charity-closely-linked-to-trudeau-has-received-multiple-sole-source-contracts-from-liberal-government

$40,000 to $900,000,000.  Not bad.

MP asks for privacy as family member arrested in drug bust, police seek removal of news

Conservative MP Karen Vecchio is asking for privacy after she says a family member was arrested by St. Thomas police in a drug bust that resulted in the seizure of fentanyl and four guns.

Hours after police issued a news release about the arrest of two people, Vecchio posted a statement on Facebook.

“Sadly, I have a personal connection to this case as a family member has been arrested. I ask that the privacy of my family and I are respected at this difficult time.”

Vecchio, who represents Elgin-Middlesex-London, also thanked police for their “great work” in the investigation.

Late Friday afternoon, St. Thomas police made an unusual request and asked media outlets to remove information about the bust posted to their websites and refrain from publishing any further information about the case because of a publication ban put in place at a court hearing. Police removed the release from their website. A police spokesperson was unable to provide details about the publication ban.

More from the nothing to see here files.

Federal website advertising hundreds of non-existent student-volunteer positions


Quote
OTTAWA -- The federal website advertising volunteer positions for students hoping to earn money for their educations through a $900-million government aid program contains hundreds of positions that do not actually exist.

Among the student-volunteer positions advertised as available on the I Want to Help website are 1,500 spots with YMCA Canada to help create online exercise regimes for kids and seniors in their communities.

Yet the YMCA says those positions were actually the brainchild of WE Charity, the organization originally tapped by the Liberal government to administer the Canada Student Services Grant, and that the YMCA never agreed to them.

I will preface this by saying that I am geographically located very far from Canada right now and my only exposure to sentiment and traction back home on this subject is social media. 

From what I am seeing, this whole topic doesnt have much traction.  And to be honest, how could it ?  There is no viable and positive alternative to the current sitting government yet.  The sitting government can do as they please, for now, and all will be fogiven and forgotten until the opposition pulls up its boot straps and presents viable and positive alternatives.

That's about right. It's a 'gotcha', but not at a time that does any tangible good for any of the opposition parties.

The CPC still have to pick a leader.
The NDP have a leader that people are losing faith in, and they're tight on cash.
Bloc Quebecois are already in about as good a position as they can reasonably hope for.
Nobody else is particularly relevant.

All three of the relevant opposition parties would need to collude in order to sink the current minority government. LPC only need to keep one of them happy - realistically, probably the Bloc, though on some issues NDP will do - and they get to keep governing.

I would also suspect that absolutely nobody is in any hurry to inherit this mess. I don't think the CPC have any desire to form government within this fiscal year.

I suspect we'll see this minority ride out a full term or close to it. The seat count, and the ability of any one of three parties to prop up the government, gives them considerable potential longevity. For better or worse they're polling pretty well, and most Canadians see at least reasonably content with how they have governed through crisis.

I don't personally want them in power, but looking at it pragmatically, that's how I see the big picture.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Or the LPC manufactures a vote of non-confidence, and strikes while the opposition is in disarray.  Let's say prorogue in Oct / Nov, election in Feb et voila - majority for another 4 years.

Very true. I think this more important than just giving the opposition crap to throw at the government for a couple hours at Question period though. Or at least it should be.

Last week the WE was saying they never gave a dime to the Trudeau's, now it's thousands of dollars.

It's another case of the government ignoring the rules, knowing full well they won't be held accountable.

They don’t even need to. He could simply ask the GG for an election and he would get one. It would be pitched to voters as ‘seeking a mandate to guide Canada out of this crisis and through the economic turbulence.’ And it would probably work.

The best armour against this is MacKay, but he would face a hell of a fight.
