Your Government Is Here For You

And YOU! And You! And You over there!

The Canadian emergency response benefit is part of the Canadian government’s massive relief package to taxpayers in the midst of the global pandemic.
Unfortunately for those same taxpayers, Trudeau has snuck non-Canadians onto the list of who qualifies for that lucrative $8,000 per person bail out.
International students, most of whom come from China, are among those eligible. So are temporary foreign workers.

Your Government Is Here For You

Trust the experts.

Politicians warned Wednesday Canadians can expect weeks or months of social distancing, but declined to reveal their own models or estimates of just how many people could become infected or die of COVID-19.

While federal and provincial leaders stressed the need for Canadians to maintain the fight against COVID-19, they refused to disclose models that project how the virus might play out.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford said releasing projection models might prompt panic.
“There are a few different models and if we give one or the other it sends two different messages,” said Ford. “These models could drastically, drastically change. If we underestimate on one side and overestimate on the other (it could) create a panic if we overestimate.”
When asked about releasing information from such models, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “There are a wide range of projections depending on how Canadians are behaving.”

In Saskatchewan they refuse to even disclose where COVID-19 cases are.

From the comments;

The federal government announced Tuesday that it “was in the process of finalizing an agreement” with the Montreal-based protective equipment manufacturer Medicom to start N95 and surgical mask production in Canada.
But the proposed Medicom manufacturing site won’t be up and running for months. According to the company, neither the location nor the number of facilities that will be producing masks has been decided. It is aiming to start production in early summer.
Trudeau is desperately trying to source N95 masks from other countries, who are struggling with their own needs.

Guess “studies of mosquitoes, rats, and programs on “storytelling regarding climate change” were more important.

The federal government is shutting the doors to all of its 317 Service Canada Centres – where people can apply in person for employment insurance, Old Age Security, pension benefits and passports – on Friday after employees en masse refused to work.
The government bent to pressure Thursday evening from the Canadian Employment and Immigration Union, which represents 17,000 Service Canada employees, including 3,360 who staff the centres.
Many had called in sick or refused to work because they didn’t feel safe during the coronavirus pandemic, despite safe distancing measures put in place that kept the centres open, said Crystal Warner, executive vice-president with the union.

Your Government Is Here For Them

The Canadian government will soon roll out millions in foreign aid spending to help combat the spread of COVID-19 abroad, particularly in refugee camps and developing countries, says International Development Minister Karina Gould.

And them too! Ottawa to take charge of housing asylum seekers for 14-day isolation period

And themselves.

Update: Trudeau cracks. Canada will return irregular immigrants who attempt to cross the US border.

(Good work by the Rebel!)

“They are eligible for everything. Everything. For 20 years.”

I’m going to tear up my passport and identify as a Syrian.

Illegal border crossers and asylum claimants whose cases have not yet been heard in front of an immigration judge are in some cases being given 20 years of all-access to gold-plated healthcare services, the Sun has learned.
This provides access to every medical procedure available under the Canada Health Act, as well as full dental coverage and tax-payer funded prescription drugs, according to a medical assistant who is blowing the whistle on these exorbitant freebees.
The medical assistant, who spoke to the Sun on condition of anonymity and provided supporting documentation to back these claims, works at a medical clinic in York Region that takes patients covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). This one office in a town north of Toronto sees 30 to 40 migrants with 20-year permits each week, said the source.
According to the whistleblower, migrants walk into the clinic and provide a government-issued identification number. When the number is inputted into the OHIP computer system, it shows what services the person is qualified to receive.

And The Budget Will Balance Itself

Jack Mintz;

The good ship “Federal Budget” looks like it is about to hit the rocks. Expect a broken promise as the federal debt/GDP ratio rises with moribund growth in the first half of 2020.
What could also happen is something that we have not seen for some time: federal program spending outstripping revenues. This is called the primary (or operational) deficit when a government not only can’t cover debt interest payments (totalling $23.9 billion in 2018/9) but also its program expenses.
A primary deficit has not appeared since the fiscal years 2009/10 and 2010/11 when a severe global financial recession took place. For two decades prior to 2009, we had only federal primary surpluses. Even in the latter Mulroney years with a deep 1990-91 recession, Canada ran a primary surplus. The real story was profligate spending during the Pierre Trudeau years resulting in a string of primary deficits starting in 1975/76 for over 12 years, even during robust growth years. […]
And this looks to happen in 2020

State Of The Nation

Pretty much.

Remember now — the government doesn’t order the police after their enemies. That would be dangerous.

In the unlikely case that you haven’t figured this out on your own: This is Trudeau’s mob. They’re advancing his policy goals as surely as if he were directing their activities personally. If he didn’t want these blockades and disruptions, he’d stop them. But he does, so he won’t.

State Of The Nation


Protesters have blocked access to the Thousand Islands Bridge as families return home after the Family Day long weekend.
The Thousand Islands Bridge Authority says traffic restrictions to Canada are in effect due to protesters on the Canadian span of the bridge crossing.
In a message on Twitter, Ontario Provincial Police announced Highway 137 is closed in the Lansdowne area, including access from Highway 401 eastbound and westbound and access to the United States.

How thoughtful of the OPP to step up to the plate with volunteer traffic control. Mighty neighborly.


We Are All Treaty People

How’s that Liberal government workin’ out for ya?

Businesses and homes across Atlantic Canada are days away from running out of propane as a result of anti-pipeline protests that have cut off rail links across Canada.
Ian Wilson, president of Halifax-based Wilson Fuel, said his company is rationing propane by partially filling customers’ tanks.
“If we just filled everybody’s tank on delivery, we’d be looking at outages today,” he said in an interview Friday.

Question: If you’re stuck in traffic during an illegal protest, will police still ticket you for sending a text?

With that question asked and answered, I believe it’s time for our own blockade. No more voluntary fine payments: take every parking ticket, every traffic violation, every petty bylaw infraction to court until the police, politicians, and judiciary in this country agree to return to work.
