    British Columbia Premier David Eby is expected to declare a provincewide state of emergency. His office has scheduled a news conference for 6:15 p.m. PT Friday The expected announcement comes after a significant number of homes were destroyed by a fast-burning, "unpredictable" wildfire in the West Kelowna area as crews fight through what the B.C. Wildfire Service has predicted will be the most challenging days of the provincial fire season due to gusting winds. The extreme conditions in the area are not expected to let up over the next 36 hours, and fires across the province may see significant growth,...

    DARRYL DYCKAs liberals across the country continue to push for the legalization or at least decriminalization of pretty much everything short of murder, you might find yourself wondering where all of this is heading. Predicting the future remains tricky, but we are probably seeing a hint of things to come in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Last year, the province decriminalized nearly all drugs, including some of the hardest and most dangerous, not wanting to simply incarcerate lots of people or infringe on their rights. (Bless their hearts.) So how is that working out? As Fox News reports this...

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia — British Columbia will send hundreds of cancer patients across the international border for treatment in Bellingham beginning this week in a multimillion dollar, desperate and controversial effort to restore government funded health care to some of its most vulnerable residents. It is a highly unusual, yet not entirely unprecedented effort by the free universal health care system Canadians have long enjoyed. It will also mean two Whatcom County clinics stand to make millions in payments from the BC government. “I don't think people who are suffering right now and in this immediate period should have to...

    With everyone distracted by China, skyrocketing crime and inflation, a nonexistent Southern border, and rapidly increasing authoritarianism in Washington, the Islamic State (ISIS) has taken the opportunity to strike again in North America. ... An attack on a transit bus in Surrey, B.C. over the weekend is being treated as terrorism after RCMP national security police took over the investigation.” It seems that the perpetrator, a manifestation of Canada’s deep commitment to diversity and multiculturalism named Abdul Aziz Kawam, was “initially charged with attempted murder for allegedly slashing a bus passenger’s throat on Saturday morning, but prosecutors added four counts...
  • As Vancouver's Downtown Eastside tent eviction drags on, community workers say they feel blindsided

    A week before the City of Vancouver decided to serve eviction notices on the occupants of makeshift shelters on Hastings Street in the Downtown Eastside, they awarded a number of community organizations combined contracts worth $50,000 to make the area safe for residents. The organizations say they entered into the arrangement to help remove garbage and flammable materials on the assumption that the city was committed to helping them support the unhoused residents that were living there. But after the city's fire chief issued eviction orders, they say they feel like they were "set up to fail," and they don't...

    "The whole story, it seems, was concocted to stir up hatred against Christians and stoke outrage. It succeeded. Remember last summer when a mass grave containing the remains of hundreds of children was found on the grounds of a former government boarding school for indigenous children in British Columbia, Canada? In the seven months since this shocking news broke, not one body has been found, and not a single shovel-full of dirt has been excavated from the site in question. Contrary to the worldwide media coverage last summer, nothing, in fact, has been “discovered” on the grounds of the Kamloops...

    The British Columbia government is rationing gasoline and restricting travel on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, southwestern parts of the province and the Sunshine Coast after this week’s unprecedented storm severed highways and cut supply lines. Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said a limit of 30 litres of fuel per visit to a gas station is an important step to maintaining the supply as the province works to bring in more gas by truck and barge from Alberta, Washington state, Oregon and California. He said the order would apply for 10 to 11 days and he trusts that people won’t...

    Video link below. Dr. Charles Hoffe was warned to be silent when he asked health officials a month ago about his observations of harmful side-effects of the Covid-19 vaccine following the first dose. Noting the Astrazeneca was a topic regarding blood clots in Europe, and anphylaxis seemed to demonstrate that Moderna had underreported risks.He gave the example of anaphylaxis. According to Moderna, their study revealed that anaphylaxis occured in 1 out of 100,000 vaccinations, but in the doctor's experience, he had two cases of anaphylaxis in 900 patients.He asked (email to 18 health officials running implementation) if perhaps the rollout...

    One of these Amarna letters (EA 39) came to light just before the turn of the previous century (1900). Researchers noted references to "ameluti Ia-u-du" and "ameluti tsabe Ia-u-du." The spelling of Ia-u-du is identical to that of later Assyrian cuneiform inscriptions referring to Judah (Judah is our Anglicized form of the Hebrew Yehuda). As such, we would have a translation of the above two passages as "men of Judah" and "soldiers of Judah." Prof. Morris Jastrow Jr. (1861–1921) wrote an article titled "'The Men of Judah' in the El-Amarna Tablets"... the inscription was related to territory in the extreme...

    Another case of the coronavirus has been diagnosed in British Columbia. The provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, says a woman in her 30s has been diagnosed with COVID-19 after returning this week from Iran. The woman lives in the Fraser Health region. “Our continued view is that the risk to B.C. is low, we are acting with vigilance,” she said. Henry said staff were surprised by a new case linked to Iran, which only recently reported it had five cases of COVID-19 and two deaths. “That could be an indicator that there’s more widespread transmission. This is what we...

    Feminist Amy Siskind tried to get progressive radio show host David Pakman fired from his adjunct professorship at Boston College after he dared to disagree with her social justice politics on Twitter. In a tweet last week, Siskind argued that she would not support any white male candidates in the Democratic primary. “I will not support white male candidates in the Dem primary. Unless you slept thru midterms, women were our most successful candidate,” Siskind wrote. “Biggest Dem vote getters in history: Obama ‘08, Hillary ‘16. White male is not where our party is at, and is our LEAST safe...

    Archaeologists in Austria have uncovered a gruesome ‘kill site’ where Stone Age people slaughtered mammoths. The site, which was found during construction of a new bypass in Drasenhofen on the Czech border, contains mammoth tusks and bones. The remains have been dated to between 18,000 and 28,000 years ago. “This Paleolithic 'kill site' is the first one in Austria that has been excavated and analyzed according to the latest methods,” said Martin Krenn of Austria’s Federal Monuments Office, in a statement. “It gives us a sensational view of the way of life of the Palaeolithic people.”  An early Bronze Age settlement...

    Colleges may not celebrate Christmas, but they have no shortage of snowflakes. "A few years ago, Boston College psychology professor emeritus Peter Gray was invited by the head of counseling services at a major university to a conference on 'the decline in resilience among students,'" Lenore Skenazy and Jonathan Haidt write in the latest issue of Reason magazine. "The organizer said that emergency counseling calls had doubled in the last five years." "What's more, callers were seeking help coping with everyday problems, such as arguments with a roommate. Two students had dialed in because they'd found a mouse in their...

    On Monday night’s edition of Fox News’s “Special Report,” host Bret Baier reported that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio was “off the job tonight,”...Fox News has maintained a complete blackout of the investigation, launched in August 2011. As with the Associated Press and other mainstream outlets, Baier did not provide any information from the final presser on December 15 revealing that two document examiners from two different disciplines arrived at the same conclusion: that the anomalies found in the Obama birth certificate image which exactly replicate nine items from a long-form birth certificate belonging to a woman born in...

    The chief investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s probe of the validity of the image Barack Obama released as his birth certificate says evidence suggests the involvement of the Hawaiian government in the alleged fabrication. WND reported last week that Arpaio and his chief investigator on the Obama birth certificate issue, Mike Zullo, held a news conference to reveal evidence they say shows the document was fabricated on a computer. They conclude it is not a copy of any original Hawaiian document, and while their investigation did not address whether Obama is a “natural-born citizen” as the Constitution requires for presidents,...
