    Sales targets meant to ensure automakers ramp up EV production to keep up with demand, says source...

The source — who was not authorized to speak publicly — said the new regulations are meant to ensure that automakers produce enough affordable zero-emissions vehicles to meet the demand. The regulations will be called...

    “Canada will continue to deliver support for Ukraine’s heroic defense against the Russian military,” Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa. “We are announcing our intention to ban all imports of crude oil from Russia, an industry that has benefited President Putin and his oligarchs greatly.” Canada imported $289 million worth of energy products in 2021, according to Statistics Canada.
  • Canada Puts Millions More Dollars into “Voluntary” Covid-19 Quarantine Camps

    ransomnote: I believe America's Covid camps are called "shielding centers" and information on them is sparse.In Canada, millions of dollars have been put into the country’s Covid-19 “voluntary” quarantine camp program, the government has announced.In order to “help” temporary foreign workers stay safe from Covid germs, Justin Trudeau’s government will spend at least another $5 million (£3,727,170) to establish more “isolation” and “quarantine” camps in British Columbia.The scheme, which is known as “Canada’s Safe Voluntary Isolation Sites Program,” is supposedly being expanded for the purpose of facilitating people who are unable to “self-isolate” at home and require “assistance” from the...
  • Canada: Police hunting for person who put up stickers asking what if Islam isn’t a religion of peace

    Now it is evidence of “racist views and anti-Islamic views” simply to ask whether or not Islam is a religion of peace. The question cannot even be asked without bringing on a police investigation. Simply asking about the content of Islamic doctrine is not allowed. It is a nefarious, “sneaky way to make people feel othered.” But the question nonetheless lingers in the air, and Sherwood Park residents will have to deal with it sooner or later: “Islam: Religion of Peace? What if it isn’t?”

    There have been more than 10,000 incidents of classified or secure documents being improperly left or stored since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government came to office. According to a document quietly tabled in the House of Commons, the highest number of incidents took place in Public Services and Procurement Canada, which reported 2,912 cases of documents not handled according to the security level dictated for the documents between Nov. 4, 2015, and Sept. 19, 2016. The Global Affairs Department was a close second with 2,712 incidents. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Canada's spy agency, came third with 659 cases. The...

    Zero interest and faith are not words one commonly associates with credit cards. They do have a place in discussions about the iFreedom Plus MasterCard, tailored to meet the religious requirements of Canada’s Islamic community and recently launched by Toronto company UM Financial. “There are clients in the market looking for structured products that are compliant,” from credit cards to mortgages, said Omar Kalair, president and chief executive officer. UM Financial plans to market the card to all Canadians.

    “It’s my BLOODY right to do so!” by Baron Bodissey A Motoon Ezra Levant is the publisher of Western Standard magazine, whose print version — now defunct — published the Danish Mohammed cartoons two years ago. On Friday Mr. Levant was summoned under protest to be interrogated by a “human rights officer” from the Alberta Human Rights Commission. The reason? Khurrum Awan, an imam from the Canadian Islamic Congress, filed a complaint with the HRC against him. Mr. Levant was required to appear before this extra-judicial body — no one on the HRC is a judge, and the panel is...

    Not quite parody but dangerously close. How can she be so disgustingly pro-American, he wonders, and yet so stridently anti-Islamic? Doesn’t she see that Islamists and “Christianists” are two sides of the same coin? Things pick up towards the end but she never retreats. Just one of the many reasons she has my vote for the vice presidency next year. Click the image to watch.

    He's a former Vice-President of the United States. His movie, "An Inconvenient Truth", is up for an Oscar. And he's the poster boy for the environment - printed on recycled paper of course. All of which is making Al Gore a hot ticket in Toronto. The American politician turned environmentalist came to the U. of T. Wednesday night for a long awaited speech, and there were throngs of fans to greet him. So were ticket scalpers, who are seeing a different type of green. Reports indicate more than 20,000 people were trying to get their hands on a ducat for...

    I'm with a group of surprised camels, a 300lb chicken shwarma and a bemused comedy writer in a wintry, wet Toronto square. We're here for the launch of CBC's new sitcom Little Mosque on the Prairie, which depicts a Muslim community trying to assimilate in a small prairie town. It has little in common with the sugary, 1970s American pioneer family drama Little House On The Prairie, jokingly appropriated in the show's title. By contrast, Little Mosque addresses head-on post- 9/11 fears and prejudices. It's generating lots of publicity in Canada, with or without the camels, largely for breaking new...

    OTTAWA (CP) - Another controversial comment by Liberal leadership front-runner Michael Ignatieff has cost him the support of his Toronto campaign co-chair. Thornhill MP Susan Kadis withdrew her support for Ignatieff on Wednesday, after he accused Israel of committing a "war crime" during its bombardment of Lebanon last summer. "Michael is an intelligent person and I would think that he would have a better handle on the Middle East given his years of experience on human rights and international law," Kadis said in a written statement. Kadis was reacting to Ignatieff's appearance on a French-language television program Sunday, in which...

    A majority of Canadians believe U.S. foreign policy was one of the root causes that led to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and Quebecers are quicker to criticize the U.S. administration for its international actions than other Canadians, a recent poll suggests. Those conclusions are found in a newly released poll conducted by Léger Marketing for the Association for Canadian Studies. The poll suggests that 77 per cent of Quebecers polled primarily blame American foreign policy for the Sept. 11 attacks. The results suggest 57 per cent in Ontario hold a similar view. Canadian opinions have hardened against the United...

    Lawyers acting for a group of Canadian terror suspects have complained about a media blackout on court proceedings. Speaking after 14 of the 17 suspects appeared at a bail hearing in Brampton, Ontario, they said it was indicative that the men cannot get a fair trial. Details of the charges they face have not been published but their lawyers say they include an alleged plot to storm parliament and behead the PM. The accusations against the men, most Canadians, has caused nationwide shock. Citizens' rights Rocco Galati, representing one of the suspects, who include five teenagers, complained that the men...

    The delivery of three tonnes of ammonium nitrate to a group suspected of plotting terrorist attacks in southern Ontario was part of an undercover police sting operation, the Toronto Star has learned. The RCMP said yesterday that after investigating the alleged homegrown terrorist cell for months, they had to move quickly Friday night to arrest 12 men and five youths before the group could launch a bomb attack on Canadian soil. Sources say investigators who had learned of the group's alleged plan to build a bomb were controlling the sale and transport of the massive amount of fertilizer, a key...

    ILLEGAL GUNS | With a big-city summit set for Tuesday, Mayor Bloomberg's war on traffickers is bringing results, but weapons keep flowing into his city as fast as police can seize them. It took 11 months and ended in a porta-potty on a construction site. In the bitter pre-dawn cold of a Sunday morning in February in the borough of Queens, members of New York's Operation Tripod pounced as gun traffickers from Ohio sought to close the type of big-money deal that keeps the so-called Iron Pipeline humming.

    NEWMARKET -- Two local taxi drivers, one with alleged terrorist links and the other facing outstanding charges in the U.S., were nabbed two weeks ago outside a modest townhome here, neighbours and co-workers say. But the secrecy and mystery surrounding the arrests of alleged al-Qaida captain Raja Ghulam Mustafa and his brother-in-law Syed Maqsood Aly continued last night when Syed's wife tried to distance herself from both men. Meanwhile, the Toronto Sun learned last night that Mustafa entered Canada about 18 months ago using the fake name of Raja Ghulam Murtaza and obtained refugee status. When first approached by the...

    he Ontario Library Association refused to drop from its recommended list a book that includes Palestinian children endorsing suicide bombing. Palestinian and Israeli children speak about suicide bombings, anti-Semitism, guns and soldiers in “Three Wishes,” by Deborah Ellis. “In our eyes, the book is perfectly good and we stand by our selection committee and the rights of children to read this book,” said Larry Moore, the association’s executive director. The Canadian Jewish Congress asked for the book to be removed from a list of recommending reading for 8-11 year-olds, saying it does not provide young readers with enough context. “They...

    TORONTO — Ontario has formally passed legislation to prohibit the use of religious tribunals to settle family law disputes such as custody and divorce. The bill was introduced after Premier Dalton McGuinty promised last year to prohibit the use of religious rules, called Shariah law, to settle Muslim family law cases. McGuinty surprised many when he announced he would not only ban Shariah, but would also prohibit all religious arbitrations in Ontario. The Canadian Jewish Congress said Tuesday it was disappointed with the new law. "It assumes that faith-based approaches to arbitration are innately exploitative," said Mark Freiman, honorary legal...
