    Canada’s federal government will likely drop its COVID-19 vaccine requirement for people entering Canada at the end of the month, a government source said on Tuesday. The source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was “likely” to drop the vaccination requirement on Sept 30. The Globe and Mail newspaper reported the news earlier on Tuesday. Canada will also drop random coronavirus testing on the same day, and make it optional to use its ArriveCAN app, where travelers have been required to upload their proof of vaccination, the source said. Canadian airports faced...

    Terence Graham has been waiting anxiously for weeks to receive urgent CT scan results after experiencing "noticeable swelling" in the back of his head that gave him "blinding headaches." The 55-year-old Canadian Forces veteran, who lives in Laird, Ont., about 40 kilometres southeast of Sault Ste. Marie, said he was checked out at the local emergency department on July 27. Not only did it take nearly three weeks to get the scan, he says he's since been unable to get the results. The findings of a new Angus Reid Institute poll conducted in Canada and the U.S. in August suggest...

    PM says the government will probe the claims and expects intelligence agencies to follow the rules Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stood behind the country's top civilian intelligence agency Wednesday in response to an allegation that one of its contractors helped traffic three British teenage girls to Islamic State extremists seven years ago. A new book by U.K. based writer Richrd Kerbaj--"The Secret History of the Five Eyes"--is set to be published on Thursday. It claims that an informant for the Canadian Security and Intelligence Servicw (CSIS) smuggled Shamima Begum, 15 at the time, and her school friends Kadiza Sultana and...
  • The truth about why Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act may lead to his resignation

    07/01/2022 8:46:40 AM PDT · by Tench_Coxe · 35 replies
    LifeSiteNews reported on June 29 that Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have made the rare decision to waive cabinet confidentiality and “release the evidence it used to justify invoking the Emergencies Act to crush the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa earlier this year.”I believe this recent revelation will ultimately lead to Trudeau’s resignation. (snip)Like I said, he will never willingly enter into a battle he does not believe he can win – he is a coward. Therefore, he has two likely ways out.He will call another election and step down as party leader in the process, or he will simply step down...
  • Data shows Jews in Montreal targeted during Quebec's strict COVID curfew

    Rates of tickets issued per 100,000 residents show that the city's Hasidic Jewish community faced severe curfew enforcement by Montreal police. For five months during Quebec's COVID curfew, Rebel News was out sounding the alarm about the targeted harassment from Montreal police towards the city's Hasidic Jewish population. Organizations that claim to stick up for Jews were silent. The only time the public heard from these so-called Jewish groups was when they decided to condemn Jews for calling a police officer a Nazi as he was harassing Hasidic Jews at a synagogue, targeting them for observing their religious obligations. Well...

    A convoy of motorcycle riders is set to arrive in Ottawa this weekend for a rally on Parliament Hill. Dubbed "Rolling Thunder Ottawa" the convoy plans to loop through downtown Friday and Saturday, though their reasons for the rally are unclear. The event is bound to be a reminder of the downtown protests that paralyzed Ottawa for weeks and inspired similar demonstrations across Canada and around the world over COVID-19 mandates. Police already plan to send in officers to enforce the rally and will prevent vehicles from entering the area surrounding Parliament Hill...

    Alghabra says government decision is based on science and data Transport Minister Omar Alghabra is giving no indication his government plans to drop its masking requirement for air and train passengers in Canada in the near future. "We constantly consult our experts and whenever the advice we receive changes because the circumstances change, we will change our regulation," he said Tuesday. But for now, it is what it is" His comments came after a federal judge in Florida stuck down a Biden administration requirement that passengers wear face coverings on airliners and mass transit...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal minority government has reached a deal with the New Democratic Party (NDP) to stay in power until 2025. In exchange, the Liberals will support the left-leaning NDP on several of the party's key priorities in parliament. Mr Trudeau said on Tuesday that he believes the agreement will provide "stability" for Canadians. The move has been strongly criticised by Canada's Conservative Party. Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, Mr Trudeau said that the deal - which he termed a "supply and confidence" agreement - begins today and will continue through the end of Canada's...
  • Hollywood Celebrities, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda, Mark Ruffalo, Oppose Canadian Natural Gas Pipeline as Energy Prices Soar

    Hollywood celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, and Jane Fonda are protesting a Canadian natural gas pipeline that they claim represents a threat to the climate and indigenous rights. Their demand to defund the pipeline comes as energy prices are soaring around the world, putting a squeeze on working class families and sending a dire ripple effect throughout the global economy. The pipeline at the center of the fight is the Coastal GasLink, which transports natural gas across the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia to the Pacific coast.

    Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland ... As a member of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum’s board of directors ... Freeland’s maternal grandfather Mykhailo Khomiak was the Nazi regime’s senior editor of the Ukrainian antisemitic daily newspaper Krakivs’ki visti (News of Krakow). ... Her response to the famous trucker convoy in Ottawa, legally and peacefully protesting the government’s punitive COVID-19 mandates, was nothing if not totalitarian in nature. Freeland stated that banks would be able to freeze personal accounts of anyone linked with the protests without any need for a court order. The same would apply to...

    OTTAWA -- Lawyers for a proposed class-action lawsuit against the convoy protest in Ottawa argued in court Wednesday that GiveSendGo may be in breach of a freezing order on funds raised for the convoy on the website. Monique Jilesen, a lawyer representing the proposed class and who obtained an injunction that froze convoy funds, said the order is meant to secure funds so the legal issue of how they should be used can be dealt with in court. Parties in the case have agreed to move some donated funds and cryptocurrency into escrow, which could be redistributed to affected Ottawa...

    As the tire tracks fade from the so-called “freedom convoy” that occupied downtown Ottawa streets, some of the Telegram forums devoted to the convoy have taken up the torch of a new cause: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Much like the misinformation that fueled some of the trucks headed for Ottawa, conspiracy theories are at the core of some of their conversations about Ukraine — leading them to decry Western intervention in the conflict, or in some cases, express outright support for Russia. “I fully support Russia,” wrote one Telegram user in the channel titled Convoy to Ottawa 2022, which has...

    She was directed to leave Ottawa within a day and be out of Ontario within 72 hours, not to return unless for court reasons. OTTAWA – An Ontario judge ordered this afternoon that trucker Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich be immediately released on bail but with strict conditions. The decision came after Lich was earlier denied bail by a judge with ties to the Liberal Party of Canada. “I find that this accused ought to be released,” ruled Justice John M. Johnston today. According to Ottawa-based lawyer David Anber, who has been live-tweeting Lich’s case, in addition to her bail...

    “Those who organized the protests didn’t really care about anyone’s rights or freedoms but their own, and neither did the politicians who enabled them.” ...While truck horns have been silenced and the convoy has largely moved on, there is lingering resentment and anger among residents. “And rightfully so,” said Coun. Catherine McKenney, who attended Saturday’s rally as a supporter. “Right from the start (of the convoy), we saw there was hatred, xenophobia, racism, and that was directed very much to a certain demographic … I think that feeling of abandonment is what terrified people during the illegal occupation, and I...

    Over the past few weeks, I watched the siege of Ottawa along with millions of Canadians. Trucks choked the downtown, crowds waved giant Canadian flags, firecrackers went off at night, men lounged in hot tubs and hot dogs were grilled on the BBQ, all against a backdrop of incessant, deafening honking. It was like witnessing a block party, crashed by middle-aged white men with a penchant for military fatigues and giving the occasional sieg heil. I never thought I’d live to see the day when words generally ascribed to Muslims would be used to describe white people. I could hear...

    Honk! Honk!Did you just hear "Heil Hitler!" as Canadian Liberal MP Ya'ara Saks hilariously fantasized? Nope! In fact you probably heard nothing at all because there is a new ailment that liberal residents of Ottawa are suffering from, "phantom honking."It has become so severe that the tax-funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported on it on Saturday in a most serious manner, "The trucks have left Ottawa, but 'phantom honking' lingers for many downtown."

    A trucker arrested as police cracked down on Freedom Convoy protestors in Ottawa has told of the farcical way the Canadian capital’s ‘Keystone Kops’ tried to bring the weeks’ long demonstration to an end. Even the officers themselves were complaining about how disorganized the whole operation was, Guy Meister told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. ‘You could tell they were overwhelmed. They were as dumb as a bag of hammers,’ Meister, 53, said. ‘They wanted to take my booking photograph, but I had to wait for several minutes because they were having issues with the “mug shot board.” They first...

    An anti-lockdown Canadian pastor who was arrested earlier this month for preaching to Canadian truckers in Coutts, Alberta, has reportedly been thrown in solitary confinement where he has been on a hunger strike for two weeks. Pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested on February 8, before he left his house to perform a church service for the truckers who had set up a blockade on the Alberta-Montana border to protest vaccine passports. He has been charged with mischief over $5,000, aiding and abetting the blocking of critical infrastructure, and for breaching the bail condition for “not keeping the peace,” stemming from...

    OTTAWA—The federal government says the RCMP is working with financial institutions to “unfreeze” bank accounts locked by emergency orders that targeted people who organized, participated in, or donated to the so-called Freedom Convoy blockades. Isabelle Jacques, assistant deputy minister of finance, told a Commons standing committee Tuesday that the RCMP began “sharing information” — related to the end of “unlawful” blockades — with banks and financial institutions as of Monday that should lead to affected accounts being “unfrozen.”
