Of Measles And Liquid Gas

Just a quick one.

Turns out Canada doesn't mind making business deals for liquid gas.

Let's back up. A few months ago Japan and Germany came around asking for some of that sweet liquid gas only to be rebuffed by the government of Canada. But Canada then turned around and did this with Qatar. 

"Qatar Energy has recently entered into two agreements with ExxonMobil Canada to obtain LNG exploration licenses in the waters near Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. The collaboration in education and healthcare has played a significant role in enhancing the bond and connection between the citizens of both nations. "


Look up Qatar. Then tell me how their 'values' line up with ours. Canada doesn't do values.

People are all surprised by this.

Should they though? 

This is very much in Canada's MO. Always was. That is, mercantilism never really left the colonial mindset of Canadians. Instead of just exploring and extracting the LNG ourselves and selling it on the market - you know, like normal countries would do - we decide to outsource it so that others can reap the economic benefits. Which is what happened when Qatar inked a deal with....you guessed it....Germany and Japan. Canada, recall, purchases its oil from Saudi Arabia while doing everything possible to not develop our own resources.

But then we have a carbon tax to reduce emissions. A measure that won't do anything because the basic premise of C02 driving temperatures is a false one. A monumentally foolish one. But that's not the point here. 'Zero' anything is just Marxist mumbo-jumbo nonsense. 

The point here is the head spins.

See. Canada is doing this to 'look' Green. They don't want to be 'seen' doing anything icky like selling the one thing that the world needs from us: Oil and gas. We're a natural resource based economy and the 'transition' from this is simply not feasible. 

In this way, the Qatar deal makes perfect sense. It's a head shaker for countries for sure, but here we are.

Canada 2024. Ruled by stupid people with not inner-core principles.

Not the brightest bunch are we?

And what has this gotten us?

It keeps our prosperity down (and I won't get into economics here) while ensuring we're the shittiest 'green' performer.

Ah, Canada.

Mediocre and proud of it.

Hey, as long as we're not American, right?


What happened to measles? Weren't the unvaccinated going to kill us all? As vaccine confidence and uptake continues to sink (gee, I wonder why?), the 'experts' have been falling all over themselves trying to figure out why. Of course, it's not because of their own actions and rhetoric during COVID. Nope. To admit this would mean to be humble and courageous. They've invested too much of their reputations in sticking to the failed COVID narrative and now they must sink with it. They were to foolish and cowardly to course correct.

They learned no lessons which is why they're becoming more and more authoritarian forcing medical tyranny - for our own good.

The public is having none of it and this drives the paternalist-technocrats in the medical field mad.

They act like it's all new but they damn well know the real stats.

Everything is about driving moral panics now.

Don't let them make useful idiots out of you. 

There's a fine line between informing the public and propagandizing them. And boy are we heavily into the latter. 

I'm gonna stop here lest I get into a rant about people like Andre Picard - and 'ethicists' like Arthur Caplan and his dehumanizing nonsense. 


On the Arizona abortion ruling. I haven't looked into it yet but seeing the howls from the usual suspects - especially in slow witted Canada - I'm pretty sure it's being mangled and misinterpreted just like SCOTUS's ruling on Roe V. Wade.

But I will say Quebec is the LAST jurisdiction to pass judgment on any state or province on the continent. The sheer arrogance of this place is quite breathtaking. 

We have some of the worst metrics in economics here. A second rate collapsing public health system and other poor health outcomes. We're a laggard have-not province that firmly operates on a collectivist communistic model. 

Of course they embrace things like MAIDS and late-term abortions. They swapped the Church for the godless 'secular' state.

I'll end here. 


Carbon Rebates For The Commoners; Combatting The Climate Change Phantom

It looks like the carbon tax will become the key issue in Canadian politics.

The Conservatives think they've found their winning strategy and will use it as a leitmotif while the Liberals will continue to force through an endless stream of costly programs doomed to fail thanks to the  two minor status chumps NDP and Bloc Quebecois who prop up this silly government and a feckless Canadian "media" once again running to its defence in support of the tax.

The Conservatives aren't alone though. The provincial governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan oppose the tax without reservation and are willing to fight it. Nova Scotia has expressed its disapproval while Ontario Liberals who are seeking to dethrone the beaten down Ford Conservatives have announced they wouldn't impose a tax.  Quebec, being Quebec, embraces taxes. Quebec has never a seen a tax it doesn't love. It has gone Full Metal Marxist into the Green Grift. It will be left holding a big bag of nothing for its troubles. Well, the population will. The grifters will make out like train robbers.

Above al, the Conservatives appear to have the backing of the electorate. Thousands of Canadians - including truckers and farmers - are protesting in the streets the tax. Have we ever seen Canadians this engaged mobilizing protesting one of the most unpopular governments in history? I haven't.

Of course, the geniuses running and ruling this country won't listen. They will just accuse Canadians of being victims of Poilievre lies and everyone's favourite - misinformation and disinformation.

You will listen to ONE voice of propaganda pal. The state.

Sensing he's losing the plot, Trudeau first asserted provincial politicians did a poor job 'selling' the tax. Not everyone's a natural con man I reckon. But then came a 'study' by a group of 200 'non-partisan' economists extolling the virtues, without evidence, of a carbon tax. The timing was, erm, perfect. Then the usual suspects in media picked up the 'study' and explained to the population they believe to be Pavlovian Dogs that '200 experts' can't be wrong. Just like during COVID. 

Flatten the curve. 95% effective. 97% consensus. 200 experts. 4 in 5 dentists.

It's a marvel anyone listens to such silly appeals to authority.

Let's explore this on a basic and superficial level as to why a carbon tax at this time - if ever - is foolish and won't work.

In a nutshell? C02 doesn't drive temperatures. We've known this for at least 300 years thanks to England's tenacious tracking of climate and weather. It's a known fact. Like masks and lockdowns were known in the literature to not work and therefore never recommended as well as asymptomatic people were never known to be main drivers of outbreaks, the established data showed C02 is not a main driver of temperature. 

Why, it's almost as if the same people who run the climate change industry run public health. Follow that money folks.

Right here, the story should end. Ah, but it doesn't. This is Canada A leader in quackery. A laggard in reality. A lap dog to globalist interests.

How far behind the ball is this country? The trillion dollar climate change  system change industry appears to be on its last legs. When you have politicians blaming a housing crisis very much of their own doing - Hello Justin! - on climate change, you alert even the most unconscious of normies. 

The idea of the tax is to change habits. It's social engineering. Think masks and social distancing. How did that work out? They lied about it then and they're lying about the tax too. It's to limit consumption with the idea of reducing emissions with the goal of 'Zero emissions' by 2030 or whatever arbitrary date they set without a shred of empirical evidence. Just like they did during COVID. Nothing they pimped was backed by evidence based science. Nothing. 

But we already mentioned CO2 doesn't drive temperatures (weren't we supposed to have lost the UK, NYC and Coral Reef by now?). So how can this work? It can't. Because it's not about that. It's about population control - and money. These are measures to keep you in place like a serf. Meanwhile, the shysters peddling this nonsense from Justin to Greta to Kerry to Di Caprio to  one Al Gore continue to fly around in private jets leaving 'carbon footprints' the size of the hot air coming out of their collective asses.

And notice they're not stopping at one of earth's elements that sustains life. They're going after methane and nitrogen. And if you think they're not going to talk oxygen, you're mot paying attention.

You're dealing with a cult here. A cult filled with grifters, hypocrites, useful idiots, and stupid people. 

At this rate, they're going to propose taxing the periodic table of elements. 

The government and its adherents for the tax point out that people will be getting a 'rebate' greater than what they pay in tax. If that's the case, then what's the point? In any event, do they not grasp it's tax money being recirculated? They just take it and give it back. There's no benefit whatsoever. Not in your pockets and not for emissions. And it's not 'revenue neutral'.

it's quite alarming people are buying into this scheme. It's all nonsensical financial sophistry. 

Now let's look at some data and international examples.

Canada is the 7th largest emitter per capita in the world. It's the highest in the G7. I mention the G7 because Freeland and everyone in the Liberal establishment loves to cherry pick data when convenient to promote whatever economic success they want to cheer. Well, like having the highest household debt per capita in the G7, we're the biggest emitters. We're also the 7th largest gross emitter on the planet.

Some will say, 'Well all the more we need to put in a tax. It's the cheapest and most sensible way to achieve it!' Except, there's no evidence that it will or can.

Another issue is the biggest gross emitters in the world - China, India, USA, Russia - all don't expect to tackle emissions. The next two - Japan and Germany - just implemented carbon schemes. 

Interestingly the UK, Italy and France rank 17th-19th. Italy doesn't have a carbon tax. 

The carbon emissions bar graphs look a lot like COVID restrictions graphs. That is, they show no rhyme or reason proving they actually work. 

Sweden and Australia represent an interesting case. Australia tried it in 2012 and killed it in 2015 citing it was driving the cost of living too much. They claim it was 'working' but when you look at their bar graph (link above), you notice that emissions seemed have been stable. In fact they appear to have gone down after the tax was ended in 2016.

Sweden is an even more interesting case being wa head of the curve (Canada is a laggard by comparison) having put in a tax in1991 They claim the tax is a success but when you look at their graph, emissions were already on the down trend by 1991 from the 1970s.

It's the exact same ploy they did with the vaccines in the 50s. By the time vaccine program rolled out cases were down. And then they claimed 'victory'.

The question becomes - Why pretend? 

I think they want all these things to make a difference so badly they're willing to manipulate and force data to meet any result they want.

Like COVID cases and deaths and other stats, I'd treat climate change data with a grain of salt.

We'll see if what I laid out here will be proven more correct than not.

The Magnificently Evolving Magic mRNA Vaccine

We went from '95% effective; and ''take the shot end the pandemic', to 'no vaccine is perfect it prevents death' to 'no one said it would prevent deaths but it's reduce hospitalizations' to what we have now a 'to induce an immune response' dud. 

Please keep up to date. We don't know what we'll come up next. 

Any questions?

The Experts TM.

Great Barrington Fumbles Into Greatness

The quiet pictures town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts  was given the gift ff rationalism, science And courage during a time of hysterics sinking into an irrational moral panic by three respected scientists.

How did they respond to The Great Barrington Declaration penned by Dr. Jay Bhattacharya (Stanford), Dr. Martin Kulldorf (Harvard), and Dr. Gupta (Oxford)?

With this nauseating and insufferably ignorant appeal to authority and scientism. Here, read it for yourself.

Of course, four years on both Fauci and Collins have all but admitted what they did was bunk if not shamelessly harmful. As did the spectacularly and woefully cynical Deborah Birx. But no one paid attention. Damage done.

Calling Fauci 'America's Doctor' when he never saw a single patient (like our own Dr, Tam here in Canada), is an insult to doctors. The ones who spoke out and truly cared for their patients specifically. 

The GBD was a masterwork of sane science in a time of superstition. The deniers, wrapped up in their amulets and garlic, could not see it.

Story of humanity.

Say their names. Because we don't get out of this to fix it without singling them out for accountability. Ot at least mockery.

Stephen C. Bannon, Chair

Edward Abrahams

William Cooke

Kate Burke

Leigh Davis

Of the five paddlers of 'Obey 'The Science TM" only this man Bannon remains.

The rest have moved on to spread the Good Word of Faucism and Scientism no doubt. 

Ironically, it's the very doctors who dared to speak out that the good name of Great Barrington was preserved. Indeed, kept great. 

Quebec: Just Shoot Me

Quebec is angry again.

What is it this time that got all the usual suspects riled up about language? 

The latest entity to run afoul of Quebec's linguistic warriors is the soccer body for North America CONCACAF.

No one is spared when it comes to Quebec's low self-esteem. 

The "scandal" goes something like this. Canada's head coach Mauro Biello was set to answer a Quebecer reporter in French when he was interrupted by a CONCACAF official asking him to keep it in English.

The body apologized for the incident. The issue should have ended there.

Why? Well, CONCACAF a good number of its membership are Spanish speaking countries so English is simply the governing common language. So the official wasn't technically wrong. The entire continent wants to hear what was asked and what the reply was despite Quebec's parochial disposition.

You can't go onto an international stage and start to bang on pots and pans demanding evernote bend to your sensitive linguistic demands. Literally, no jurisdiction acts like this from my experience. 

At this point into the post, I'd be accused of 'Quebec bashing'.

Except it's not. 

I'm posting out that it's one thing to make a provincial case out of language at hime but it looks hopelessly myopic on the international stage.

I checked out CONCACAF's Twitter page to see if language warriors expressed anger. Sure enough they did. And it looks silly.

The world sees that and rolls its eyes.

But in Quebec it's about 'respect'. The same people who go to Florida expecting to be served in French. I don't think it's respect in as much as its sophomoric self-absorption at this point.

The tired canards of 'we're n a sea of 300 million Anglos' and 'our language is threatened' have come out again in recent weeks. 

This fake scandal should have ended with the apology. Shit happens.

Not in Quebec. Nope. Let's blow this up. 

No sooner did this happen, it turns out there's just too much damn English in the QMJHL 

T-Shirts in English are unacceptable. It didn't stop there. Former NHLer Enrico Ciccone asked politicians to step in because there's too much English in locker rooms.

These people like in a bubble inside a bubble.

The Q is considered the weakest of the three leagues in the CHL. It's down to 60% Quebec-born players with a good chunk coming from out East and Europe. Where, you guessed it, the common language is ENGLISH.

It has nothing to do with respect but simple practicality.

Indeed, people coming here should learn the language and we should accommodate facilitating that they do. It's not easy to learn a new language. Especially a refined one like French.

The irony of course is that it's known Quebec doesn't even teach French properly in school. 

Quebec doesn't seem to understand respect is two- way. Not one. 

After the 'hoopla' the league announced 'no more English'.

Exactly how that respects teams based in Atlantic Canada and its fans no one knows. But Quebecers don't care. After all, they should just be happy they get to play in the Q is the attitude. Maybe they should consider joining the OHL? 

If I'm a parent considering a league to play in? I don't even go with the Q or even the CHL. I go the NCAA route. NCAA hockey is on the ascendancy. More importantly, you get a U.S. education where the opportunities are endless compared to Canada. Why would you restrict yourself to Quebec? The CHL isn't the only avenue to the NHL anymore.

The point is the argument of feeling 'threatened' no longer justifies these antics anymore. 

It's a form of linguistic bigotry and it's not seen anywhere in the West.

Yes, there are language laws in pockets of Europe but NONE go as far as Bill 101 (ie denying people to English language education), or Bill 96 and all it's insidious and odious punitive attacks on English. 

No jurisdiction anywhere in the West has the equivalence of a language police like the OLF.

The nationalists keep trying to find examples (Catalonia!) to defend their actions but in the end, a Quebecer can set up shop anywhere on the continent and they will be left alone. Have you seen Florida? This privilege is not reciprocated in Quebec. And this is just a fact.

Canada is officially bilingual. Some provinces have their own 'official' language laws but again, none go as far as Quebec does. They've pushed so hard, they can be viewed as human rights violations. 

But hey. 'Unique'.

Quebec's linguistic challenges are no different than anywhere else.

The difference comes with the strength and self-esteem of a culture. 

3 million Croatians don't feel threatened by 800 million Europeans. Ditto for 5 million Danes.  Or 11 million Portuguese. 

All these places have English widely present. 

But these are strong cultures. 

Quebec relies on punitive laws to protect it.

Maybe it's time to actually stand tall and protect your own language without suppressing another?

All that being said, the average Quebecer no longer wants to be isolated. I can't tell you how many times I've seen Quebecers in the States struggling to speak English. It's sad and embarrassing. My Gen Z daughter made the point that even French-Canadians 'don't want to miss out' on what's going on in the world. That means it needs to know English. It's ALL in English. By denying it here, it only further keeps them isolated. More than they care to admit. We on the other side see it everyday they're a step behind. Again. I say this not to bash but because I care and want what's best of Quebec. Alas, I don't see this ever changing which is why I'm setting things up to hopefully have my daughter leave. I see no future here. A total of seven people have left since 2020. More are talking and considering it. But this is another topic for another day.

All these laws, ironically, not only hurt our economy (the unseen) despite what the nationalists the and assert, it hurts Quebecers themselves. They look like hayseeds in foreign lands. 

This is the view from OUTSIDE looking in. The world is more connected than ever and with it the English language has become even more dominant as a common language. Time to become practical.

It's just shooting itself in the foot now. With the latest round with Bill 96, the next logical step is to ban English outright. 

It's time to just....chill.

And guess what? English is cool. 

Bad Friday: There Are No Coincidences

On Good Friday, the U.S. government as well as an army of politicians and government departments and agencies in both the U.S. and Canada, put out notices celebrating 'Transgender Day of Visibility'. 

There are no coincidences. This was deliberate. 

They just can't shut up even for one moment showcasing their Marxist arrogant and insufferable hostility towards Christianity like a bunch of pompous ignoramuses.

Justin Trudeau, the thing that wouldn't leave, chimed in with:

"Happy Easter! Whether you’re celebrating this holy day by attending church services with your neighbours, hunting for Easter eggs with your kids, or spending time with your loved ones, I hope you find joy in the togetherness that Easter brings."

Like most anything with this guy, his message gives a contrived vibe and lack of authenticity. Remember, our political rulers could barely care enough to condemn the burning down of Catholic Churches. All based on the lie that there were bodies of children in Residential Schools.

It should also be noted the lack of decorum and respect. It's spelled 'Holy'. Would it surprise anyone that he and/or his staff of sycophant dullards - along with amoral political hacks like Katie Telford - would spell it Him and God in lower case? Of course not.

These are faux-rational, hyper-secularized godless times. For a good snippet of that, just listen to the yokel-hicks in the Bloc Quebecois or any public 'intellectual' in Quebec. These people, being in such a cult, believe it. And hate you.

I remind. These went out on GOOD FRIDAY. That wasn't a coincidence. That was done on purpose.
