I didn't fave this because I'm Canadian, but because I really like the perspective you captured here. Your ability get so many good shots out of bus windows is very impressive.

I was hoping at the last general election for either a Conservative minority government or a Liberal minority government. Harper governed fairly well when he knew that the Liberals could topple him at any moment. But in 2015 he seems to have decided to throw the election.

Trudeau's main competitors for prime minister are two empty suits that talk. The Conservative Party has no real platform, and the New Democrats have a crazy one.

This has been going on for a long time. What has saved us is the Supreme Court. The courts seem to be the only branch of government where sanity rules. Anyway, the Supreme Court has been overturning the excesses of the legislatures and executive.

Incidentally, I have no idea of how I will vote, or if I will vote at all. I will probably vote for someone other than a Liberal, to promote a minority government. Also I'm unhappy with my MP, who I would have liked to see support Jody Wilson-Reybould and Jane Philpott (if news of them hasn't reached the UK, they're two former Liberal cabinet minsters who were expelled from caucus for publicly castigating Trudeau).

I'm against Bill 89, too. However, Trudeau had nothing to do with it. It's a provincial bill. As the videos say, it was Kathleen Wynne, the premier of Ontario, who was behind it.

Bill C-16 did none of the things Jordan Peterson and others said it did. You can find the text online.

There is no law against Islamophobia; all they passed was a resolution, which had no enforcement power. It will expire after a new government is sworn in in October after the general election.

The other videos have disappeared.

That's what I immediately thought. What really bothers me is that a large part of the motivation is simply Google's financial interests. They're acting in part to please big advertisers who don't want to be randomly assigned to political channels. I dunno -- I grew up in the 60s. People fought to get free speech then, now they want to suppress it.

These are human rights laws that actually take away human rights.

John FitzGerald club
has replied to Isisbridge club
And I agree with you there. However, legitimate suits can be laid on similar grounds (for example, protesting refusal of service based on political views). I don't know how you can eliminate suits like Yaniv's while allowing those suits. I suspect rules could be drawn up, but they would have to be complex.

As a Canadian I think the biggest threats to Canadian human rights are our hate-speech laws and the high expense innocent defendants often have to pay to prove their innocence. Even though I lean left I won't vote for the left-wing party here (the NDP) because it supports hate-speech laws -- human rights vested in the individual rather than groups has traditionally been a fundamental belief of socialism. The NDP's economics are crackpot, too.

Hey -- you may have got me to talk myself into voting Conservative in October (general election). We'll see. The campaign hasn't begun yet.

And as my two cents' worth I think the biggest threat to human rights in the UK is majority verdicts in criminal cases. Back to the USSR.

Hate speech laws are a big problem in the UK too and I would like to see them abolished.

Another major problem, which is not widely recognised, is the number of men being wrongly convicted of historic sex offences, as cases can now be tried solely on oral testimony without any forensic evidence. The "victim" has the incentive of thousands of pounds compensation (plus revenge against someone she has a grudge against) whilst the defendant is in the position of being unable to defend himself, as he cannot produce alibis from 20-30 years ago, and the dates given are usually rather vague anyway. It all boils down to whether she's a good enough actress to convince a jury.

I agree wholeheartedly. You may have heard of the Jian Ghomeshi case here. His lawyer demonstrated that his accusers were not telling the truth, and one even admitted she was lying to deceive the court. He was acquitted, but his life has been ruined, His lawyer had to do a lot of police work that the police didn't bother to do because they "believed the victims", and he probably had to pay heavily for it. And now he can't get work in broadcasting, a field he was prominent in.

No one was charged with perjury, of course.

Isisbridge club

I hadn't heard of that case before, but it seems that your Canadian courts do still insist on evidence "beyond reasonable doubt". This used to be the test in Britain, but has since been waived for claims of historic sex offences, where the victim's testimony is all that's required.

The police used to encourage "victims" to come forward, by saying they would always be believed, which effectively means the accused is guilty unless he can prove his innocence, which in most cases he is unable to. As a result, there are probably hundreds of innocent old men languishing in UK jails, whilst grooming gang rapists and jihadis continue to walk free.

Accusing the Republicans of "voter suppression" seems a bit rich in the light of the recent US election steal! But I think you missed the meaning behind my question.

The UK has a supposedly right-wing government, which is anything but. The Conservatives got a massive majority because voters were trying to keep the far left out, but they have proved themselves to be very far from conservative and Boris Johnson is a nasty shade of Liberal Green. In fact, all the current mainstream parties are left-leaning with little to choose between them, whilst decent right-wing parties are given no air time by the biased media.

That is why I asked where is this "right wing" you talk about, because things don't seem a lot different across the pond either.

The KH video was promoting equality of outcome rather than opportunity. We have marxist infiltration in all our UK institutions. The West is in a very dangerous place at the moment.

I forgot to mention this yesterday: if Chris Sky and others are worried about suppression of their rights, they can go to court. The courts tend to be sound on human rights But they don't go to court. The People's Party of Canada (Max Bernier's party) campaigned against the infringement of rights by Covid-19 provisions, but has no plans to go to court. As far as I'm concerned, I'm being deprived of essential medical services by all the people who won't make their rights case in court but somehow keep getting Covid-19 at 20 times the rate of the vaccinated.

If they were true freethinkers they would stand up to the government. But no -- let's just wave our "Fuck Trudeau" flags. Anyway. nothing Chris Sky predicted has come true. His thought may be free but it's not leading us anywhere useful.

You also should be talking about corrupt governments -- the provincial government plays a role, too. Our provincial government is Conservative and despite many missteps it is controlling the infection rate.

And who says the anti-vax movement isn't corrupt? I wouldn't trust Max Bernier farther than I could throw him, and that ain't very far.

As I said before, I don't know enough about Canadian politics to comment on the details, except that you seem to have some very evil people in charge. But I don't follow your logic about being deprived of essential medical services because of "anti-vaxxers" as you call them. Surely it's the government tyranny that's responsible for for any difficulties you might have?

This is a good description of medical apartheid in the US:

Yes, we do have corrupt politicians, and so do you. As I've said before, it's the courts that keep this country democratic. And I think Canadians prefer a crooked politician who does effective things to an honest one who's ineffective (a former premier of Ontario, Bob Rae, comes to mind -- an admirable man, but a hopeless leader).

Speaking of corrupt politicians, name an American one that isn't,

Here's my logic: 90% of Covid-19 patients in hospital in Ontario are unvaccinated. I have lung disease. I haven't had a CT lung scan in two years because all the unvaccinated patients need them, too, and their need is greater than mine, I realize many of those people have good reasons for not getting vaccinated, but many of them non-mediical reasons. Obviously if they're more likely to get Covid than vaccinated people they need to reconsider their choices, at least,

Two other things: 1): the UK has 1.5 times Canada's population, but 5 times as many Covid deaths; 2) the US has 8 times Canada's population but 28 times more Covid deaths. Freedom from death is a high priority for me.

And another thing: I'm willing to admit your analysis may be valid for other countries, but I doubt it is here. It seems the governments of many countries don't understand their citizens, and everything they say just frightens people more.

You're lucky then if you have such good courts. We cannot trust our judges here, because they're overwhelmingly Liberal and out of touch with real life.

I can't argue with your covid statistics, except to say I'd be very doubtful about their accuracy. In the UK "covid deaths" include anyone who dies WITH covid, even if their death was caused by something else.

I'm sorry to hear of your lung disease, but I still don't see how you can blame the unvaccinated for the delay in getting your lung scan, when it is the government that has created the situation.

I am unvaccinated myself and have hopefully developed natural immunity by now, and I do not feel in any way responsible for any hardships being suffered by the sheep who are prolonging this sorry situation by their compliance.

You mention governments frightening the people, and that is precisely their intention. More fear engenders more compliance.
