    Southwestern Ontario is shocked by the revelation of allegations that a nurse was responsible for 8 deaths in care homes in Woodstock and London Ontario. As shocking as it is that Elizabeth Wettlaufer, 49, of Woodstock; has been charged with 8 counts of first degree murder in what is being defined as possibly the worst case of a seriel killer in Canadian history, we need to demand that an in-depth investigation be done into every care home in Canada, especially now that euthanasia and assisted suicide are now legal. We should mourn the deaths of James Silcox (84), Maurice (Moe)...

    Fox ^ | 10-25-16
    According to Misao Dean, Professor of English at the University of Victoria, the canoe can be a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide due to history. She also accused the canoers of cultural appropriation because they are primarily white men and have a privileged place in society. In a radio interview for CBC Radio, which wasn’t picked by the Internet until several months later, she claimed “we have a whole set of narratives that make the canoe into a kind of morally untouchable symbol, something that seems natural, that seems ordinary, and seems to promote values that we ascribe to.”

    German citizens are outraged after learning a polygamous Syrian refugee will be receiving Ł320,000 in annual benefits from the government. The 49-year-old man, named Ghazia A, arrived in Germany last year, accompanied by his four wives and 23 children. Germans, of course, are not allowed to be polygamous. But a local official in the German town where Ghazia lives said an exemption was made for him. The refugee was allowed to declare one wife as his ‘main’ partner and bring the remaining three with him as ‘friends.’
