    Tampons and sanitary napkins are now available in men’s bathrooms at the Canadian Parliament under a new policy from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that requires all federally regulated employers — including airports and military bases — to offer free menstrual products in all washrooms, regardless of gender noted on the door. News of the policy change spread last week after former Canadian Conservative Sen. Linda Frum posted a photo of a basket offering free pads and tampons inside a men’s bathroom for transgender members of Parliament — setting off a firestorm online.

    Bank of Nova Scotia ... the Canadian lender missed fourth-quarter profit estimates as uncertain economic climate prompted it to set aside more funds to guard against bad loans. Scotiabank kicks off Canadian banks' earning season, wrapping up a financial year marked with economic uncertainty, rising credit loss provisions as more consumers struggle to pay off their mortgages, layoffs to cut costs, and rising expenses. The bank's shares fell nearly 5% in early trading, dragging down Canada's main stock index (.GSPTSE). Lenders have been bracing for a surge in loan defaults as effects of the central bank's monetary policy tightening flow...

    (AFP) – Many in the majority-Jewish Canadian town of Hampstead worried about the potential for unrest tied to the Israel-Hamas war, but residents of the small Quebec community have been startled by the scale of the outbreak of anti-Semitic incidents in recent weeks. Lorne W., who preferred not to give his last name, told AFP he is “very, very, very much” concerned about the sudden uptick in hate directed at the province’s Jewish community, which is one of the oldest and most populous in Canada. “Myself and my neighbors, we’re very cautious and we’re very hyperaware of what’s going on...

    New Yorkers could wake up to hazy skies Monday morning as smoke from ongoing Canadian wildfires is expected to reach the Big Apple by sunrise. New York City officials sounded the alarm Sunday over the potential plume of wildfire smoke two days after Mayor Eric Adams faced backlash for not issuing a more forceful warning leading up to heavy rain that flooded parts of the city Friday. Current forecasts indicate the Air Quality Index will be about 55, which means “there may be some risk to people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution,” the city said in a press...
  • Canadian Housing Woes: Rising Mortgage Struggles and Negative Amortization Create Banking Pressures

    09/19/2023 8:12:27 AM PDT · by davikkm · 7 replies
    The financial situation in Canada is showing some concerning signs of strain: Around 24% of mortgage holders in Canada are currently struggling to meet their monthly payments, according to data from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Additionally, three major Canadian banks, including BMO, TD, and CIBC, have revealed that roughly 20% of their residential mortgage borrowers are in a state of negative amortization. This means that these borrowers owe more on their mortgages than they originally borrowed, totaling nearly $130 billion in loans. This scenario is putting significant pressure on Canadian banks, and it highlights the urgency of reducing...

  • Canadian Court Invalidates Covid Lockdowns Due To Illegal Implementation

    An Albertan court ruled on Tuesday that lockdown orders enacted in response to Covid were invalid. The ruling in Ingram v. Alberta will likely force prosecutors to withdraw charges against individuals, churches, and other organizations in several other standing cases. Justice Barbara Romaine ruled in favor of the applicants because the Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) delegated her decisions to the cabinet, which she was not authorized to do under Canadian law. The CMOH herself testified at trial that she provided only advice and recommendations to politicians but did not make the decisions herself. Justice Romaine did conclude that...

    I keep encountering this misconception from people who don't follow Canadian politics... That somehow the Trucker convoy was defeated.... People remember Trudeau's crackdown, old ladies having their skulls cracked with batons, Disabled indigenous grandmothers trampled by police horses, Bank accounts frozen and public employees investigated for mere donations... And there's a big reason people remember this... It was dramatic, and the media and the regime certainly wanted you to think resistance was futile... What people don't remember is what happened in the immediate aftermath: The government caved on absolutely everything within a week for the most important things, and then...

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday pushed the Green New Deal on Twitter Wednesday in reaction to record-hot temperatures in Puerto Rico and wildfire smoke from Canada overwhelming U.S. East Coast cities, saying the world is "unprepared" for the "climate crisis." "Between NYC in wildfire smoke and this in PR, it bears repeating how unprepared we are for the climate crisis," the Democrat from New York stated Wednesday "We must adapt our food systems, energy grids, infrastructure, healthcare, etc ASAP to prepare for what’s to come and catch up to what is already here," she said.

    As wildfires scorch Canada and smoke blankets the United States from Minnesota to New England and south to Florida, millions of people are under air-quality alerts. Face masks — the same kind used in the COVID-19 pandemic — can help protect people from dangerously polluted air, say health experts. But choose a good quality mask, they caution. “N95 masks are the type of face covering protection that I would recommend for somebody who is outside during the air pollution caused by wildfires,” Marina Vance, PhD, an assistant professor in the environmental engineering program at the University of Colorado, Boulder, told...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) called the Canadian wildfires “truly unprecedented,” in floor remarks on Wednesday, and warned of the ongoing damage caused by climate change. “This morning, our nation’s capital — and much of the northeast, including almost the whole of my state, New York — woke up once again under a veil of smog,” Schumer said. “As we speak, wildfires of unnatural strength continue blazing in Canada, sending toxic air and smoke over the border and over American cities.”

  • Canadian Liberals Fold, Remove Hunting Rifles from ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban

    Liberals in Canada folded amid backlash from farmers, hunters, and indigenous groups, and have removed hunting rifles and shotguns from the long list of firearms being banned under Prime Minister Trudeau’s “assault weapons” ban. On May 10, 2020, Breitbart News noted Trudeau’s “assault weapons” ban targeted 1,500 firearms, a number of which were bolt action rifles. Bolt action rifles require manual operation of the action between shots in order to eject a spent shell casing and load a fresh cartridge into the chamber. Such an action is typical for traditional hunting rifles, not “assault weapons.”

    Canadian broadcaster Sid Seixeiro mercilessly attacked Christians and insisted that the NHL punish the Philadelphia Flyers for allowing player Ivan Provorov to refuse to participate in the team’s gay pride night on Tuesday. Seixeiro was infuriated when Provorov refused to don a gay pride jersey and sat out the team’s warm-ups ahead of Tuesday’s game, citing his Russian Orthodox beliefs as his reason. After the game, the 26-year-old Provorov told reporters that he “respects” everyone, but his religion prevents his participation in gay pride demonstrations.
