Senators have voted to pass the federal government's bill legalizing recreational marijuana by a vote of 52-29, with two abstentions, paving the way for a fully legal cannabis market within eight to 12 weeks.
“I made a promise to the people that we would take immediate action to scrap the cap-and-trade carbon tax and bring gas their prices down,” said Ford. “Today, I want to confirm that as a first step to lowering taxes in Ontario, the carbon tax’s days are numbered.”
Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!
The lawsuit over “The Happytime Murders” trailer featuring “ejaculating puppets” reached an explosive climax on Wednesday, with a judge shooting down Sesame Workshop’s claim that the trailer for the Melissa McCarthy film, which bears the tagline “No Sesame. All Street” infringes on the Workshop’s trademark.
Warren Kinsella, a former Liberal strategist, author and lawyer who is currently writing a book about the growth of hate groups among young people, said the posters are concerning, in part because of how detailed they are.
"There's swastikas, lightning bolt, the SS death head symbol," Kinsella said, noting the posters also include more obscure references.
A breakdown of the cases between 2016 and 2018 reveals that failure to protect the agency's — and taxpayers' — information was the top reason employees were suspended, reprimanded or even fired. That accounted for 222 incidents or 40 per cent of misconduct identified by the agency.
Sesame Workshop has filed a lawsuit against “The Happytime Murders,” a film where puppets have sex, drugs and shoot each other alongside humans. The creators of the iconic kids' show say it's being tarnished by the crass comedy.
As groundskeeper for the school district in Benicia, California, about 40 miles east of San Francisco, Johnson mixed and sprayed hundreds of gallons of Roundup. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, and in July, after chemotherapy and other treatment, his oncologist gave him six months to live.
He also made a vague threat Friday to regulate gasoline prices. “Nothing drives people more crazy than on the weekend mysteriously all these prices of gas go up,” he said.
“The gas companies, I’m putting you on notice. You aren’t going to be playing these games out of the blue ….it’s not going to happen,” Ford added, before walking away as reporters asked for more details.
“For all the professors who want to sit in Parliament but who can’t even get themselves elected dogcatcher, sure, it’s a good system,” the 84-year-old said in a French language interview with Le Devoir.
“Going to the street corner, shaking hands and asking for a vote. That’s democracy.”
“Facebook is taking everything we have … and giving us what? Nothing. Just pain in our lives,” said the pre-school teacher and restaurant worker, seated inside her dimly lit apartment, a mile from the company’s headquarters. “Facebook is just ruining the community.”
"We learned that there is a serious lack of confidence in social media in all regions of the world. This is a cry from the heart; people are scared. They are outraged about the violation of their privacy, and uncertain about the truth because of the plague of fake news,"
A union representing public service professionals across Canada, including economists, statisticians and civilian employees of the RCMP, is trying to figure out how $400,000 was apparently siphoned from its bank accounts over the course of nearly a decade without anyone's knowledge.
Sources tell CBC News one employee has been fired from the Canadian Association of Professional Employees (CAPE) in relation to an internal investigation, though the union said several employees were investigated.
We’ve seen less coverage of this election campaign; partly due to the change in ad buying by all of the parties who are sending cash out of the province and country by feeding social media. This has led to less resources spent by media locally and regionally.
Essentially that has led to more partisan rhetoric in play than actual factual reporting or as we journalists tend to call it, NEWS.
In early March, Crosland gathered a small group of students for a science ‘experiment’ after classes, during which he fed a sick puppy to a huge snapping turtle in front of them. The incident caused a huge public outcry and a petition, which labeled the teacher’s actions “disgusting” and urged him to be fired, was launched online and quickly gathered the goal of 190,000 signatures.
Facebook has reached data-sharing partnerships with at least 60 device makers — including Apple, Amazon, BlackBerry, Microsoft and Samsung — over the last decade, starting before Facebook apps were widely available on smartphones, company officials said. The deals allowed Facebook to expand its reach and let device makers offer customers popular features of the social network, such as messaging, “like” buttons and address books.
“I’m just going to admit this is a hard thing to do right off the top,” Wynne said in an emotional Saturday morning press conference. “I don’t know who voters will choose, that is up to them, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be me.”
“After Thursday I will no longer be Ontario’s premier,” she said.
He said the members of the union only see an “attack on policing” from the NDP, whose platform calls for a ban on street checks. The NDP platform also says it would stop laws that would allow privatizing of policing.
An NDP pledge to “promote police training on systemic racism” irked Skof.
“We’re not engaging in profiling. We don’t engage in racist behaviour. To even suggest there’s something lacking in our training is ridiculous,” he said.
What became very apparent was that the real change that was needed, especially as the tax levy again jumped up nearly 20% for the term was that like the City of Brampton, its management were the cancer. You simply can’t have a levy rise 20% per year while seeing diminishing revenues.
Packs of green iguanas are swarming seawalls, roaming yards and parks, and leaving a path of destruction and filth in their wake. Like a shot of espresso, the hot summer sun has stoked activity in the cold-blooded creatures, which experts say may be at record numbers.
“This year is the most iguanas I’ve seen and I’ve been in business for nine years,” says Thomas Portuallo, owner of Fort Lauderdale-based Iguana Control. He says the invasive lizards are out of control with “many hundreds of thousands” creeping around Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.
Quebec Superior Court has agreed to hear a class-action request that seeks compensation for all RCMP officers who have been victims of harassment and bullying. The hearings will take place tomorrow and Friday at the Montreal Court House.
The application for a certification to authorize class action proceedings is being done on behalf of 22,000 front-line police officers and civilian employees of the federal force, and is the first application of its kind to be made by its members.
A watchdog group is calling on Amazon.com Inc. to improve conditions for factory workers in China who make Echo speakers and Kindle e-readers, renewing criticisms that CEO Jeff Bezos became the world’s wealthiest man on the backs of low-paid laborers.
And while I’m writing about this regarding this outlet, it’s not uncommon in other areas as political wonks think that social media is better than having to deal with silly newspapers and their silly editors and reporters. (How did that work out for you Kathy?)
Democracy and healthy government don’t happen by accident. If people don’t hold those accountable for their dastardly deeds things erode further and we end up with governments put together from social media rantings and rumours.
Ultimately people have to ask why political entities hide and do what they do? For example while it’s easy to hit a few buttons on facebook to zip up an ad does it really have an impact compared to local media? If you’re still reading this story you’ve spent far more time on this page exposing our ads to you than you would zipping through a social media page thus dramatically increasing the chance of you noticing an ad.
