    A Quebec man has just been found guilty of starting fourteen forest fires in Canada last year. Brian Paré, 38, pleaded guilty to starting the fires which the corporate media and green agenda advocates blamed on “climate change.” At a courthouse in central Quebec, Paré pleaded guilty to 13 counts of arson and one count of arson with disregard for human life, according to CBC. When he was eventually apprehended, he told police he started the fires to check if the forest was dry or not. The pyromaniac’s arsonist spree began in May and lasted through September. Last year, Canada...

Prosecutor Marie-Philippe Charron told the court that two of the 14 fires set by Paré forced the evacuation of around 500 homes in Chapais, Que...

    (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...

    Political tensions are never far from the surface in this Canadian province, even when it comes to this beloved snack of French fries, cheese curds and gravy. "It is the unofficial official dish of Canada. In fact, if they could make it look good on a flag, the maple leaf's days might be numbered," Jamie Oliver quipped in an article about making the perfect poutine. As harmless as Oliver's comment appears, it's the perfect example of how a dish that stirs real feelings of heritage and culture in the Canadian province of Quebec may slowly be losing its regional identity....

    More than 5,000 people in the province died by MAiD in 2022. There were fewer than 1,000 MAiD deaths in Quebec five years ago.(Euthanasia Prevention Coalition) — On June 7, The Physicians’ Alliance against Euthanasia joined with the Living with Dignity citizen network to express their great disappointment that Bill 11, an Act to amend the Act respecting end-of-life care and other legislative provisions, was passed in the Quebec legislature. Many people are not aware that Canada has two euthanasia laws, a Quebec law that came into effect in December 2015 and a federal law that came into effect in...

    Massive wildfires have rapidly spread across the Canadian province of Quebec, fueled by dry and hot weather conditions and multiple lightning strikes. The number of fires escalated from 36 to over 100 following a thunderstorm on June 1st, catching authorities off guard. As of Thursday, that massive conflagration has gotten worse. Much, much worse. And the flames are spreading. Trace Gallagher of Fox News gave a sobering update on Thursday about the unprecedented scale of the wildfires in Canada, which have ravaged through the forested countryside and has dealt severe damage to air quality throughout the northeast. While most fires...

    The mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante, told reporters on Wednesday her city had offered the provincial government of Quebec firefighters to help control the over 100 wildfires spreading in the region and engulfing the American Northeast and Midwest in smoke – but Quebec refused them. The remark is particularly shocking as the premier, or top provincial executive official, of Quebec claimed this week that the province only had enough firefighters to address 30 wildfires, emphasizing, “we need all the help possible.” Quebec is reportedly receiving firefighters and supplies from America and France, while the Canadian government is in talks with...

    Canada looks set to face another record-shattering year of euthanasia deaths in 2023 after a reported 35 percent rise to some 13,500 state-sponsored suicides in 2022, an analysis of official data shows. Regional health chiefs won’t release their formal tally for some weeks, but data from Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, and Nova Scotia already show steep rises in euthanasia deaths last year right across Justin Trudeau’s Canada, the Daily Mail reports. The data claim was shared with the outlet.

    Justin Trudeau has faced intense backlash after a clip emerged of him singing Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody after a dinner just two days before Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral. The Prime Minister of Canada was filmed singing Freddie Mercury's iconic song during an impromptu session at Corinthia Hotel, London, during the official period of mourning just days before Her Majesty's state funeral. Canada's premier, 50, arrived in England following the Queen Elizabeth's death to join world leaders at her monumental funeral on Monday morning. Wearing a casual maroon t-shirt, Trudeau was seen standing over a piano during an ad lib singalong...

    A professor of infectious diseases and immunology is questioning Quebec’s COVID-19 pandemic management with an analysis of provincial data, saying risks were overstated and measures uncalled for. “The threat from COVID-19 was very real, but was it as significant as reported?” said Patrick Provost in the piece published in Québecor media company platforms on June 22. Provost is a full professor at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Laval University, with his current research focusing on Ribonucleic Acid (RNA). He noted that the mortality rate is 1.44 percent for COVID-19, but he said the rate is overestimated due to...

    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...

    Doctors would be forced to address patients in French With limited exceptions, Bill 96 requires doctors to address their patients in French, even in situations where both doctor and patient would better understand each other in another language. Certain bilingual institutions, such as the Jewish General Hospital, are exempt. As are patients who can prove that they’ve attended an English-language school in Canada, or immigrants who have arrived in Quebec within the last six months. But for everyone else, everything from cancer diagnoses to Alzheimer’s treatment must be performed in French.

    The wintry weather lingering in parts of Canada has yielded an expected gift: More maple syrup. Output in Quebec, the world’s largest producer of the sticky breakfast staple, is now poised to rise in 2022 as cool spring temperatures allow farmers to tap trees for a longer period, said Pierre Rhéaume, spokesman for Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, which is a government-sanctioned agency that sets prices and production for most of the world’s syrup. Farmers are still harvesting in some northern parts of the province, with some gathering record amounts, he said. The so-called sugaring season typically occurs between late February...

    A Quebec restaurant has removed the word “poutine” from their menu to denounce Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. Instead, diners at Le Roy Jucep in Drummondville will have to settle with ordering “la frite fromage sauce” or “fries cheese gravy” when they’re craving the Canadian comfort dish. “Dear clients and friends,” the Quebec eatery wrote in a Facebook post on Friday. “This evening, the Jucep team has chosen to temporarily remove the word ‘p**tine’ from its trademark in order to express, in its own way, its deep dismay at the situation in Ukraine.” Le Roy Jucep, which prides...

    Quebec stepped up its “deconfinement plan” this week and began lifting coronavirus restrictions, while Premier Francois Legault rejected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s effort to crush the Freedom Convoy protest movement by invoking emergency powers.“I think that I was very clear with the prime minister that the federal Emergencies Act should not, must not apply in Quebec,” Legault said on Monday. “We don’t have any problems in Quebec so far. The Sureté du Québec has everything under control.”There were Freedom Convoy demonstrations in Montreal and Quebec City over the past two weeks, but they were relatively restrained and mostly held...

    Ontario ramped up plans to drop a raft of COVID-19 restrictions, including the province's vaccine certificate system, while Alberta schools opened Monday without mask mandates for children. Saskatchewan residents also started the day with relaxed measures as the province lifted its proof of vaccine or a negative test requirement to enter most businesses. Meanwhile, Quebec said it would discuss ending its vaccine mandate. As provinces tailored policies to their own COVID-19 trends, the Public Health Agency of Canada said there will be "variability" in when and how jurisdictions lift measures. "With the decline of the Omicron wave, and as we...
