B.C. overdoses claimed more lives in May than COVID-19 has claimed all year in the province

Forced economic shutdowns cause people to lose their jobs and contact with friends and family, resulting in a lot of mental pain and suffering. No wonder some succumb to drugs.

As reported by CBC:

The BC Coroners Service said 170 people died of an illicit drug overdose in May, the highest total ever recorded for a single month in provincial history.

It’s also more people than have died from COVID-19 in B.C. all year.

“It’s frustrating to see the number of illicit drug deaths go up and to reach a new high … It’s sad to see this many people impacted, losing their lives,” said Andy Watson, a spokesperson for the coroners service.

The province said 167 people have died of COVID-19 since B.C.’s first case of the virus was confirmed six months ago. The annual total for overdoses in B.C. was 554 as of May 31.

More than 82 per cent of overdose deaths in May involved fentanyl.

Watson said post-mortem toxicology testing suggests there were a greater number of cases with “extreme” concentrations of the opioid in May compared with previous months.

“The rate and the level of fentanyl concentration is the highest that we’ve seen it,” Watson said Thursday.”

Justin Trudeau: Beta Totalitarian

On May 1, 2020, the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau (“Justin”) announced a unilateral ban on so-called “assault weapons.” A “comprehensive” ban at that, with upcoming confiscation.

May Day is the holiday in the Marxist world, and it is likely not coincidental that this was Justin’s chosen the announcement date. Marxism, as we all know, is a totalitarian mode of governance.

History is replete with examples of totalitarians confiscating firearms to disarm the civilian populace – just try to name a totalitarian regime that didn’t. As well, history is full of examples of totalitarian regimes surviving longer than they otherwise would have, since unarmed domestic resistance is largely neutered when confronting by armed enforcers.

And so, Justin is very much following in the footsteps of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and Mussolini – Alpha Males all (for present purposes, as they were Communists and Fascists, classify them as Alpha Collectivists).

Yet the Internet is filled with characterizations of Justin being a Beta Male – which does seem to fit. (Whether this is due to nature or nurture we’ll leave for others to assess. We do know that his father apparently tolerated serial and very flamboyant adultery, amongst other things, on the part of Justin’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, a sign of Betahood on the part of the père.)

Justin and others will surely take great umbrage at the comparison to Stalin et als. – not without some justification. After all, it seems inconceivable that he’s personally contemplating having his opponents killed, or sent off to newly established Gulags in Alberta, or killing fields in Saskatchewan.

But this piece isn’t just about Justin – but he and Beta Collectivists like him (i.e., Progressives and Democratic Socialists), be they male or female.  Henceforth, we’ll refer to them collectively (pun very much intended) – as “Justins.”

It’s All A Joke to Them: Canadian Howie Mandel Wears Hazmat Suit to Hollyweird Gig

Howie obviously missed the memo from Dr. Drew.

Howie Mandel is a judge on the TV show, America’s Got Talent (AGT). He’s also a big germaphobe.

So how did this Canadian decide to show up for work in California the other day? Like this:

Howie made a joke about his outfit. That’s to be expected by someone who suffers from TDS.

This man is worth $40 million, courtesy of his $70,000/per episode paycheck from AGT. He can afford to miss a few days of work if he is REALLY that concerned about the Wuhan Virus.

Yet that wouldn’t allow him the opportunity to run with the demorat narrative, now would it?

Elon Musk’s 31-year-old pregnant girlfriend is “woefully ill-prepared”

Elon Musk (who is 48) supposedly knocked up his 31-year-old Canadian singer girlfriend who goes by the names of “Grimes.”

She posted on Instagram a few days ago that she feels “woefully ill-prepared” because she really didn’t understand what she was getting into.

From her post:

“Fake or real? Haha. Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha… how do y’all cope with working and having a baby?? I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more. This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz. What were yalls experience w this stuff like? I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into. It’s been good too, but it makes working a lot harder. Good at writing and having lots of wild ideas tho, but anything physical is hard. Im also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha. But my albums out in a sec so I prob need to get back on here. Don’t mind my emo energy, but curious what other ppls experience was like 🤍🐁🍼 I didn’t even google it, I was just like sure y not hahaha smh.”

Womyn, please. You are 31 years old. Quick acting like you are 17 and that no woman has ever given birth before.

For a womyn who is considered a “badass” she sure whines a lot. You picked a real winner, Elon.

Oh noes: Harry and Meghan don’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office

From Page Six: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be coming to America — but not until President Trump is out of office, a report said Sunday.

After their Megxit deal gets hashed out, the Daily Mail reported that the couple plan on living in Canada and eventually find a home and business in Los Angeles.

“It’s by no means an immediate thing but there is a long-term plan to end up back in the US with a second home in Canada, where they will also spend a great deal of time,” the source said.

But Markle, 38, has said she won’t move back while Trump is president, according to the Mail, citing her friends.

Ahead of the 2016 election, and before she married 35-year-old Harry, the former actress blasted Trump as divisive and misogynist on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.”

She said at the time that she was considering remaining in Toronto, where she filmed the USA Network’s “Suits,” if Trump won.

During Trump’s state visit to the UK in June, he was asked about Markle’s comments and lashed back that “I didn’t know that she was nasty.”

He later clarified he meant the comments were nasty.

Neither Markle — who was on maternity leave after giving birth to the couple’s son Archie — or Harry made an appearance at the state banquet at Buckingham Palace during the visit. Harry did, however, attend a royal luncheon with Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

Alleged ISIS supporter commits murder with stolen gun; victims sue S&W for their “ultra-hazardous” product

Faisal Hussain: Not responsible because of a hazardous product.

In 2018, a “psychotic, depressed ” and “very disturbed” Faisal Hussain shot 16 people in Greektown (Toronto). Two people died. Hussain cowardly committed suicide.

Hussain used a .40-calibre Smith & Wesson that HE STOLE in Saskatchewan in 2016 during a break-and-enter at a gun store.

According to Heavy, the Pakistani Hussain may have expressed support for ISIS. Wikipedia says that to this day there is no evidence that there was any connection between the shooter and his support for ISIS.

In a class action lawsuit filed by the victims of this shooting, they claim that the gun manufacturer failed to implement “key safety features” that could have prevented the attack.

Those features would be smart-gun technologies to prevent “unauthorized” users from firing the gun.

Without the technology in place, the lawsuit claims it was “reasonably foreseeable” people such as Hussain could inflict widespread damage with a stolen weapon. Read the details about the class action lawsuit here.

Setting aside the unreliability of smart gun technology, wasn’t it “reasonably foreseeable” that people such as Hussain would not inflict such widespread damage due to Canadian laws?

I mean, I’m no lawyer and I do not have a thorough knowledge of Canada’s criminal laws yet have a few questions:

Isn’t stealing ILLEGAL?
Isn’t breaking and entering ILLEGAL?
Isn’t assault ILLEGAL?
Isn’t assault with a deadly weapon ILLEGAL?
Isn’t first-degree murder ILLEGAL?
Isn’t felony murder ILLEGAL?

I’d argue that the “ultra-hazardous” actions of this shooting originated with the CRIMINAL shooter.

Where do you draw the line with product manufacturers and CRIMINALS who are WILLING and INTENT on committing ILLEGAL behaviors?

Guess the Canadian courts will decide.

Antifa’s actions do not surprise me. They are disgusting creatures.

Canadian “woman” acquitted in BDSM child case

Cleared: Jacquelyn Laronde

This story is messed up on so many levels…

From Toronto Sun: A judge has acquitted a Kingston woman, who was formerly a man, of allegations that she sexually abused the teenage daughter of a BDSM sex partner.

“I am not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Jacquelyn Laronde committed these offences,” said Justice Jane Kelly.

She cleared the 49-year-old woman, previously known as Sean O’Toole, of sexual assault and interference charges against the girl. The Crown had alleged the offences took place in London, Ont., during the early 2000s when the girl was 12 to 17 years old.

“While I appreciate that the victim was testifying as a 30-year-old adult about what happened 15 to 18 years ago, the standard of proof remains the same,” said Kelly, adding she didn’t believe the accused’s evidence.

Despite finding inconsistencies and contradictions in the complainant’s testimony, the judge praised the woman, who passed university and is now raising her own child. “Her resilience must be commended. She has suffered much trauma in her short life but testified in a mature and poised manner,” said Kelly. “She’s to be admired for her strength.

“She testified in a very convincing manner, but her evidence was inconsistent,” said Kelly, who listed examples of contradictions and inconsistencies.

Laronde is one of three strangers, including Jason Dickens and Martin Galloway, who were allegedly invited by her parents to sexually abuse the girl. Her stepdad and mom also violated her, according to testimony at the trial.

The woman’s sister, who’s one year younger, and brother — born in 1992 — were subjected to degrading sexual abuse by their parents, court heard.

Laronde, Dickens and Galloway were BDSM sex partners with the victim’s mom.

Dickens, 48, pleaded guilty to child pornography charges stemming from this case and is facing the prospect of a dangerous offender bid. Galloway is on trial at Ontario Court of Justice and is denying any sexual contact with the girl. His trial resumes Jan. 8.

The woman testified Galloway was the first man — who came to her home — on her 13th birthday in October 2001, followed by Laronde and Dickens.

But the woman’s mom contradicted her, saying Dickens came first, Laronde next and Galloway last.

“I am relieved,” said Laronde, a disability pensioner who denied any sexual impropiety. Laronde’s lawyer, Cynthia Fromstein, added: “This was 100% the right outcome but it’s the most disturbing and troubling case I’ve ever heard.”

Canadian dad cancelled the babysitter when he found out it was a man; now being sued for breaching babysitter’s human rights

From Daily Mail: A single Canadian father has been accused of violating his province’s human rights act by questioning a prospective babysitter about his gender and age, according to court documents.

The father-of-two, identified only as ‘Todd F.’, is being investigated by the Alberta Human Rights Commission after a complaint was filed against him in 2017 by the babysitter, James Crynowski.

Todd posted an advertisement on Kijiji.com, a popular classified Canadian ad site, seeking a ‘babysitter wanted for evening Friday September 1’ for his two sons, then five and eight, as he was planning to meet a friend for dinner.

According to legal documents, Todd received several responses to the posting and among them was Crynowski’s, who listed skills such as CPR, first aid, a clean criminal record and seven years experience of caring for children.

Todd responded to Crynowski with a series of basic questions, asking him where he lived, how old he was, and if he was male or female.

‘Hi, I live in Edmonton. I’m male and 28 years old,’ Crynowski replied, but received no further responses from Todd.

According to his legal counsel, Todd’s dinner plans fell through and he no longer required a sitter, so felt no need to continue the interaction.

Instead of following up with Todd, Crynowski instead filed a formal complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission on September 1, claiming to have been discriminated because of his age and gender.

‘There have been many sleepless nights,’ Todd said in a statement to the Edmonton Journal Saturday. ‘I did not realize that people could object to me finding out all the relevant information I can about a potential babysitter, including their age and sex. I thought I was doing what was best for my young children.’

Todd, who is self-employed, said he rarely uses babysitters and in light of Crynowski’s complaint, he’s unlikely to use one again. ‘Just trying to learn enough about a potential new babysitter can get me in trouble and I need to ensure that my children are safe,’ he added.

The Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), a Canadian conservative legal advocacy organization specializing in Canadian constitutional law, is representing Todd on a pro-bono basis and sent a letter to the commission on Monday to have the complaint dismissed.

‘Thwarting parents from even inquiring about a babysitter’s gender or age is inconsistent with giving ‘utmost deference’ to parents’ preferences concerning a babysitter for their children,’ the letter said. ‘It is also inconsistent with the fact that both gender and age may each be bona fide occupational requirements in this context.’

As of Friday, the commission has not dismissed the case.

This is also not the first time Crynowski has filed such a claim. In a similar case back on May 23, 2014, he attempted to claim discrimination in relation to a mother’s advertisement seeking a babysitter for her five-year-old son.

When Crynowski replied to the ad, he was told that the woman was looking for a female sitter. He filed the complaint two days later, and the case went all the way to the Canadian Supreme Court until it was dismissed in May this year.

JCCF president John Carpay said parents need to be able to hire whoever they feel is appropriate to babysit their children. ‘The parents should have full discretion,’ he said. ‘If it is for a service in the home, you have to feel comfortable with a person coming into your home.’

He added: ‘It is unclear why the Human Rights Commission has now accepted Mr. Crynowski’s complaint against Todd, giving the precedent set by the test case.’

Media whipping up fear for 2020 elections: “Frightened by shootings, appalled at Trump, Americans are voting to leave – with their feet”

I wonder how many of these frightened Americans are just showing up at a country’s border and expecting to obtain illegal entry? Oh wait, they are applying for Visas. Guess only other countries are expected to determine who has the right to enter their country…

From Yahoo: Eleanor Pelta has secured Polish passports for herself and her two sons. Stephanie Schwab is planning an escape route via Spain. Elie Jacobs has begun to keep enough cash on hand to buy last-minute plane tickets to Israel for his family. Alex and Aussa Lorens are applying for work visas in Australia, while Josh Lewin is aiming for New Zealand.

And Kami Lewis Levin already has her bags packed and tickets purchased. She leaves next week, with her husband, three children and a dog, for a new home in Costa Rica.

Americans are not flocking to the exits, but some of them are thinking about it, and some are talking about it, and at least a few are acting on the idea. Google searches for terms like “how to move out of America” spiked this past weekend to levels not seen since November 2016, right after the presidential election, and last seen a decade ago during the Great Recession. And in dozens of interviews after the massacres in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, people who were born here spoke of their crystallizing desire to leave.

These are not recent immigrants who feel threatened by nationalist rhetoric coming from the White House and Congress, but for the most part middle-class or relatively affluent Americans disheartened by the turn in American politics since the 2016 election. And it is not necessarily Canada — the default destination for agitated Americans over the decades — where they are threatening to move, because work visa qualifications there are tight. Instead, they are casting a larger net across the globe.

“The text-message threads and FB message threads have surged with questions about how and when to leave,” said Jacobs, a 41-year-old public affairs consultant who lives in New Jersey with his wife and toddler, and who began looking to Israel as an “escape hatch” as soon as Donald Trump was elected, but whose stockpiling of cash took on new urgency this week.

For many, the exploration of the departure gates is a direct response to the current president of the United States and his party. Before 2016, Coloradans Alex and Aussa Lorens were saving up to buy a house; after that they turned their attention to qualifying for a 190 Skilled Nominated visa for Australia, which requires proving English proficiency, a skills assessment and an “expression of intent” letter to those Australian states that are specifically looking for workers in Alex’s industry, which is hospitality.

Among what the couple sees as the many attractions of Australian society — including universal health care and affordable private insurance, mandated parental leave, four weeks of vacation for all workers and strong limits on guns the Lorenses are drawn by the political culture, which, Aussa says, “protects them from a Trump-like outcome.”

“They do not have a major political party that is at all equivalent to our far-right Republicans,” she says. “Their conservative party is more like the moderate Democrats. They don’t argue about whether health care is a basic human right or whether climate change is real. They banned guns after a mass shooting.

For others, the motivation is what they describe as an increasing level of daily fear.

“The way things are going, it’s to where you can’t even take your family out in public because it’s just a matter of time,” says Josh Lewin, 34, a native of Murfreesboro, Tenn., who lives there now with his wife and four sons ages 4 to 14 and works selling commercial security systems. “I need to do something to protect the family and not have to worry about this day in and day out.”

“First it was a shooting once a year, then once every six months, then once a month, and now it’s every day,” he says. “We don’t even bat an eye as a country now. I would like to move somewhere where that isn’t true and my kids don’t have to be afraid.”

He is surprised to feel as he does, both because he knows that statistically the dangers to any one individual or family are quite small, and because he has never been one for strong political opinions, and lives among relatives and friends who are Trump supporters. In fact, he emphasizes, “I’m not trying to choose sides. I am the type to sit back and support whoever is piloting the ship because you want to support your president and not see him fail.”

He has kept his feelings to himself, he says, particularly at work, where other men wear handguns strapped to their ankles at the office and, according to his wife, “joke about mass shootings being a force of natural selection.”

The Lewins have rejected Australia because “they have huge spiders there,” Josh says, and he is about as scared of spiders as he is of mass shootings. He has set New Zealand as his goal, intrigued years ago by the popularity of the extreme sport of “drift triking” — riding nonmotorized Big Wheels-like contraptions down huge hills. (New Zealand does have spiders, but venomous species capable of harming humans are extremely rare.) More recently he has been attracted by the fact that “after one mass shooting there they took steps to make it not so easy for people to get ahold of weapons of war.”

And then, “after the shootings this weekend, I went from a 3 on the scale of how likely I was to actually move to a 6.”

Those who say they are serious about leaving are quick to add that they recognize the privilege that allows them to consider such a move at all.

“I am acutely aware of how not everyone can do this,” says 40-year-old Janelle Hanchett, a writer, who sold everything she owned in Northern California in July and moved with her husband, Charles MacDonald, a union ironworker, and their four school-age children to the Netherlands. “We are not rich, we have crippling student loans, but we had equity in a house and the means to pick up and leave.”

Tired of what Hanchett describes as “the specter of this rising authoritarian regime, and of feeling unsafe all the time,” they applied for a “freelance visa” that the government of the Netherlands created to thank America for liberation during World War II, and that allows Americans to live and work as freelancers. (If they become employed by a Dutch company full time, their status switches to a sponsored visa.)

“It feels saner, more humane,” she says of her new home in the city of Haarlem, the capital of the province of North Holland. “The people seem happier. And there aren’t guns.

Under the program, they are entitled to all the country’s benefits, including universal health care, a payment from the government of about 250 euros per child per quarter, and admission to a “Newcomer” school that costs 3 euros per month and helps children learn Dutch and transition to their new country. When they learned about the school, Hanchett says, “we started to cry from happiness.” The principal told them, “Americans always react this way.”
