With little fanfare, the Senate of Canada voted today to suspend Sen. Lynn Beyak for the remainder of this parliamentary session because she failed to complete the anti-racism training she was directed to undergo the last time she was temporarily kicked out of the Red Chamber.
The Senate agreed, on a voice vote, to adopt the ethics committee’s latest report on Beyak, which calls for her suspension from the chamber so she can complete the prescribed training and take time to think about the harm she did to Indigenous people by posting racist letters on her website.
In less than 24 hrs, no ads, 50% of 800 tickets to my Regina speech May 19 eve sold. We can expand to 2000. "Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom". I have something real to say and those Regina dolts banned me. They could have capitalized on me. https://t.co/pQ9KVf7pNS
There is a difference between dependence and addiction. His daughter states this is dependence. Anyone, literally 100% of the population will form a dependence on Benzos if taken for long enough and they are horrific to come off of for everyone. There is a very big difference between addiction and dependence. This article blatantly conflates the two even though the video they posted from his daughter clearly states he developed dependence. As a medical professional I can tell you that Doctors must take more responsibility to ensure that dependency is not formed to benzos. That is different from addiction. Dependence on benzodiazepines can kill anyone. Addiction forms in a smaller portion of the population and generally extends to other drugs and activities to experience the effects of drugs/addictive behaviors. Try to respond with empathy, likelihood is you know someone who has formed dependence on substances and struggled to get off them. This man’s story is compelling. His wife was diagnosed with terminal cancer and formed a deeper dependence to manage the devastating consequences. Regardless of whether you agree with his views this is an all too common story.
The Trudeau government isn’t satisfied to simply spend $600 million dollars to pay off the entire media establishment in Canada, they want to monitor your news and use the CBC to “ensure quality in news coverage.”
Yesterday an advisory panel released a report entitled, “Canada’s Communications Future: Time To Act”, citing” a “crisis in news.” It recommends all media content services fall under the Act and regulation by the Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission.”
I’m not the only Canadian journalist to write a book about Trudeau during the campaign. So did two pro-Trudeau left-wingers — Aaron Wherry of the CBC state broadcaster and John Ivison of Postmedia, the largest recipient of Trudeau’s newspaper bail-out.
Neither of them is being investigated for writing their books. Only me.
