    Let me paraphrase Marvin Gaye and ask what's going on? Yes, what's going on at the U.S.-Canadian border? Let's check the story: Border Patrol agents in New York, Vermont and New Hampshire apprehended more people illegally entering the US from Canada in the past three months than in the previous two years combined, authorities say.Officials in the states, which make up the federal agency’s eastern “Swanton Sector,” saw a 743% increase in apprehensions and encounters between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 compared to the same period in 2021, sector chief, Robert Garcia said last week in a press release.In December,...

He warned traffickers are exploiting desperate asylum seekers with potentially lethal consequences, amid freezing temperatures and dangerous passages.

    A newly released essay by Douglas Allen, professor of economics at Simon Fraser University, examines why governments repeatedly used lockdowns during COVID-19 even after it became clear lockdowns were ineffective and “failed to isolate the virus and stop it from spreading.” Lockdowns were sustained with political support, suggests Allen, and lockdowns had “many winners.” He says for the “laptop class,” the lockdown was “the great vacation,” the “great excuse,” and the “great opportunity.” Lockdowns, said Allen, transferred wealth to this group. Meanwhile, he says, public health campaigns repeatedly told citizens that “death was ‘at the door,'” ‘now is not the...

    Canada will pay hundreds of Indigenous communities more than US$2 billion in compensation for nearly a century of abuse suffered by children in residential schools, its government has announced. The C$2.8 billion (US$2.1 billion) settlement, the result of a class action lawsuit by 325 Indigenous groups, will be placed in a not-for-profit trust independent of the government. It will be used to "revitalise Indigenous education, culture, and language - to support survivors in healing and reconnecting with their heritage", according to a press release.

    A Calgary-based family physician and urgent care doctor appeared on Canadian state media earlier this week to explain the alleged link between influenza, infection, and stroke. When explaining the linkage, Dr. Raj Bhardwaj of the University of Calgary noted his recent surprise at discovering that there is now reportedly a "stroke season." What are the details? Bhardwaj told CBC Calgary News that a stroke is ultimately when "the blood supply to the brain is compromised for some reason. It's basically a plumbing problem in the pipes that supply blood to your brain. And there's two things that could go wrong...

    Federal electric vehicle rebates in Canada went 153% over their originally intended budgets, a new report out last week unveiled.Ottawa had shelled out $759 million on EV rebates by March of last year, according to a report by True North. The "unprecedented" number of people claiming the rebates pushed Canada's government well over its allocated spending. Analysts in the Audit Of Incentives For Zero Emission Vehicles Program said: “The uptake of the program was higher than expected and funding was an ongoing concern.”“The program’s main risk is not having sufficient funding to meet the demand,” they continued.In Canada, beginning in...

A group of 8 teenage girls allegedly carried out a “swarming” attack on Lee, stabbing him in a fight over a liquor bottle.An alleged “swarming” attack in Toronto started when the eight teen girls charged in the slaying tried to take a liquor bottle from the victim and his friend,...

    Joe Biden is in Mexico meeting with the President of Mexico Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He delivered some remarks with the two other leaders on Tuesday. I reported earlier on what Biden said about the classified documents in his office at the Penn Biden Center. But he also made remarks about illegal immigration and the problem at our Southern border. First, AMLO gave him a left-handed compliment, but I’m not sure that Biden is bright enough to pick up on what the Mexican President was truly saying. ... “You, President Biden, you are the...

    The College of Psychologists of Ontario is investigating Canadian clinical psychologist and author Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, allegedly over criticism of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The association confirmed on its website that it released a decision Nov. 22 requiring Peterson to complete a Specified Continuing Education or Remedial Program (SCERP), a coaching program designed to address concerns about an individual’s public conduct. Peterson says the investigation is due to his retweeting Pierre Poilievre — an opposition candidate for prime minister — and writing posts critical of Justin Trudeau. “I am to take a course of such training (with reports...

    Canada has banned foreigners from buying residential property, in an attempt to make more homes available to locals facing a housing crunch. The temporary two-year measure was first proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the 2021 election campaign when soaring prices put home ownership beyond the reach of many Canadians. "The desirability of Canadian homes is attracting profiteers, wealthy corporations, and foreign investors," his party said at the time.... ...According to the Canadian Real Estate Association, average home prices have fallen from a peak of more than Can$800,000 ($867,000) at the start of 2022 to just over Can$630,000 last...

    Canada’s already controversial euthanasia laws could expand to include children who qualify. This policy will nurture the country’s growing culture of death Abel Pelletier was only 4 years old when his mother, Karie-Lyn Pelletier, began petitioning the Canadian parliament to allow a physician to take his life in a medically assisted death. Abel was severely disabled because of a rare condition called Mednik syndrome. The disease is incurable, although medications can manage certain aspects of the condition. Still, this case isn’t what most people think of when they think of euthanasia or assisted suicide. They think of elderly people with...

    Democrats’ universal health care fantasy must be stopped so we can save our citizens from health care shortages and suicide.Today, Canadians are experiencing a three-word addition to what Ronald Reagan called the nine most terrifying words in the English language: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help you kill yourself.” Soon after the announcement that Canada would expand its medically assisted suicide program to include those with mental illness, the popular Canadian department store chain Simons issued a new advertisement celebrating the policy. The video features a woman saying, “Last breaths are sacred; you just have to be...

    Furious Tesla owners are blasting the company over how their high-end cars are not functioning in extreme weather, as the recent Arctic freeze left their door handles frozen shut and the electric vehicles unable to charge. “Bet ya didn’t think of ice in the Tesla design,” Canadian meteorologist Rachel Modestino wrote alongside a now-viral video of her Tesla door handle refusing to budge. The footage was shared on Dec. 23, when temperates in Ontario hit a low of 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Other Twitter users came to her aid and quickly shared some tips in the comments of her video, which...
