A largely Liberal appointed Senate is stalling -- more than 100 amendments -- "Legislation accountability act likely to die, mp says" , Jack Aubry, CanWest, October 26, 2006


[....] Mr. [Pat] Martin also said recent comments by Judge John Gomery about the government's failure to act on his report into the sponsorship scandal are not "helpful" because the Accountability Act has not yet been approved.

He believes the Accountability Act covers at least three of Judge Gomery's 19 recommendations and Parliament has enough to deal with in the large, sweeping act.

Treasury Board president John Baird said if the bill is not passed by the Senate, the Tories will make it an issue in the next election. [....]

Retroactive extortion , Terence Corcoran, Financial Post, October 26, 2006


If there are real crooks in Canada's financial markets, the country's top regulators have demonstrated an uncanny ability to not find them. Instead, the record is littered with petty enforcement of undefined crimes and ill-defined rules, along with over-the-top prosecutions of people who have done little or no wrong. We're thinking here of the Ontario Securities Commission's jihad against David Rankin, Scott Paterson and mutual fund operators, as well as the recent Sears takeover intervention and the attempt to interrogate Nortel's Frank Dunn in ways that threaten his Charter rights.

The Rape of Europe, by Paul Belien, October 26, 2006


The German author Henryk M. Broder recently told the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant (12 October) that young Europeans who love freedom, better emigrate. Europe as we know it will no longer exist 20 years from now. [....]

Third World corruption overwhelms any chance for a balanced or civil society. Mexico stands as an excellent example of ‘el Grande’ corruption. In John W. Slagle’s book, ‘ILLEGAL ENTRIES’, every aspect of Mexican life suffers from corruption. It’s rampant at the lowest levels of society. Mailmen take bribes to ensure patrons receive their mail. If citizens don’t pay, no mail is delivered. Thievery is a given. Patrons are robbed while eating a meal at a restaurant!

Unfortunately, Third World corruption pours into [....]

Like a metastasizing cancer, illegal migration into the United States grew at break neck speeds in the 1990s. According to Time Magazine, three million a year illegally jump America’s fences from Canada and Mexico. The numbers indicated a growing crisis of human misery in home countries. Civic Hispanic groups such as MALDf, La Raza AND LULAC grow in power and protest enforcement of immigration laws in communities across the USA. If a BICE agent arrests illegals within five blocks of a church or school, Hispanics erupt from the woodwork exclaiming the aliens were, “Dragged from the school or apprehended while praying.” [Does that last part ring any bells?]

This illustrates ‘ethnic enclaving’ or ‘ethnic sympathy’ that circumvents law and order

[....] Do you ever wonder how Third World corruption may affect you? After 34 years of the Drug War and one-half trillion dollars of your taxes spent--drug use and drug availability remain better than before. Any kid in any city in America can score whatever drug and amounts 24/7. “Many drug shipments appear to be escorted or guarded by Mexican authorities,” Slagle said. “Narcotics organizations pay millions of dollars in bribes to corrupt Mexican military officers who command ‘anti-drug’ troops along the border as well as police agencies. The ‘mordita’ bribery system in Mexico has never been resolved by Washington, DC or Mexico’s [ex-] President Fox.” [....]

It might be noted that Vancouver, British Columbia has imported so many Chinese, both legally and illegally, into that city that it looks more like Beijing than Canada. Their Indo-Canadian drug gangs and growing power leave Canada at risk of losing any control over its own country as the new immigrants enclave into political power and ‘ethnic sympathy’. [....]


Fascinating: The spy who never came in from the cold, by Gordon Thomas, Oct. 25, 06


Gordon Thomas is the author of Gideon's Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad. He specializes in international intelligence matters.

Later, as we came to know one another better, he convinced me that secret intelligence is the key to fully understanding international relations, global politics and terrorism. [....]

via CNEWS Forum: inviting rape? , buck2thrice, 10/26/2006 10:46:03 -- Australian Muslim cleric blames women for rape , Oct. 26 2006 11:21 AM ET, CTV.ca News Staff


Australia's most senior Islamic cleric has set off a firestorm of controversy after comparing women without headscarves to "uncovered meat" inviting sexual assault, comments that he has since apologized for.

"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside ... without cover, and the cats come to eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's?" Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilali was quoted as saying in a sermon to some 500 worshippers in Sydney last month.

"The uncovered meat is the problem," he was quoted as saying in The Australian newspaper.

"If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred," he said, referring to the headdress worn by some Muslim women.

Hilal also suggested women who "sway suggestively" and wear cosmetic makeup, implying they attracted sexual attack. [....]

What do you suppose that does to race relations?

Does anyone remember a prof who taught at a Canadian university who suggested that any young woman who goes to a student drinking party in one of the campus residences, is invited up to a room by one of the males and goes ... and later claims rape ... [figure it out] Well, I believe he retired early.

London Muslims face discrimination, report charges , Reuters, October 25, 2006


LONDON - Muslims must play a greater role in London's politics and the economy to help stem prejudice and discrimination, a report said yesterday.

Muslims make up 8.5% of the capital's population, but are under-represented on its councils and among its workforce, adds the Muslims in London report.

Eldest Trudeau son, former Ontario premier dip toes in Quebec nation debate, by Les Perreaux, Oct. 26, 06


MONTREAL (CP) - Justin Trudeau [....] started the day with a backhanded dig at Ignatieff, calling nationalism an "old idea from the 19th century." [....]

Former Ontario premier David Peterson said in an interview that Ignatieff is recognizing a fact that is widely accepted, especially in Quebec.

He also pointed out that Trudeau, a former teacher and current environmental activist, is not exactly a constitutional expert.

"I don't know that he's spent a lot of time on constitutional matters," said Peterson, who backed the failed Meech Lake constitutional deal that would have recognized Quebec as a distinct society. [....]

Make a guess at who is "a potential political star for the future".

Peterson apparently doesn't realize that the Liberal party is looking for "charisma". Could we say that Stephane Dion will forge ahead now ... given his stance on Quebec and nationhood?

CSIS rapped over info obtained under duress, Jim Bronskill


[....] Arar came under RCMP scrutiny in Ottawa in October 2001 through his contact with Almalki, a prime target of an anti-terrorism investigation dubbed Project A-O Canada.

O'Connor said the cases of Almalki, El Maati and Nureddin, all three of whom were also imprisoned in Damascus, raised troubling questions about the role of Canadian officials.

He recommended the cases be reviewed through an independent and credible process. [....]

Who would be part of that new process? Some of the same guys who have stymied the current government's anti-crime legislation? The ones who let our security services slide so dismally?
