For A Thursday

For this, the last day of April...

While the Vietnamese celebrate the fall of Saigon, Canadians of Vietnamese descent rally to remember victims of communism:

Canada’s minister of state for democratic reform told a crowd of Vietnamese Canadians gathered to commemorate the inaugural Journey to Freedom Day that opposition to the prominent downtown site planned for a memorial for the victims of communism was “shameful” and that the controversial monument will get built.

“It is shameful that the Liberals and the NDP have come out against building this monument at this site, and it is shameful that some in the media have done the same. This is a worthy project, it is the right thing to do, and under the strong leadership of Prime Minister Harper, we will build this monument,” Pierre Poilievre told more than 500 people at a rally on the downtown site chosen for the monument across from the Supreme Court and fronting onto Wellington Street.

If it is any consolation, victims of communism and Islamism have been ignored for years.

Uh, no. It's too damn expensive to run a factory in Ontario. That unions are greedy political machines is just coincidence:

General Motors says it will cut about 1,000 positions from its Oshawa, Ont., manufacturing operations this year as the company plans to spend billions of dollars to boost its U.S. operations.

Well, this must be embarrassing:

Freddie Gray, whose death triggered Monday’s rioting in Baltimore, may have intentionally tried to injure himself in a police van, according to another prisoner in the vehicle, the Washington Post reported late Wednesday night.

The Post said the unidentified prisoner, who was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him, reportedly said he heard Gray “banging himself against the walls” and believed he “was intentionally trying to injure himself.

The prisoner’s statements were contained in an investigative document obtained by the paper, which said it was unclear if there was any additional information to support the theory.

Gray, who is black, was arrested April 12 after he ran from police. Officers held him down, handcuffed him and loaded him into the police van. While inside, he became irate and leg cuffs were put on him, police had said. At some point, he suffered a severe spinal injury and was unconscious when the van arrived at a police station.

God forbid anyone should wait until an inquiry could be completed.

To think, all those cars were burned for nothing.

Oh, wait! They were burned for nothing!

As the May 5th election draws closer, the Tories get desperate:

With the provincial election less than a week away, the Progressive Conservatives appear to be taking a sharper tone in attacking their rivals.

The PCs say the NDP would turn its back on the energy industry by promising a review of royalties paid by oil and gas companies.

If the NDP do make gains in Alberta,  it is very possible that it will undo Alberta's economic success.

Not that Premier Prentice hasn't tried or anything.

If one ever forgets that pro-abortionists lack brains, let these examples remind one:

A topless protester of the radical feminist group Femen interrupted a news conference by Quebec’s culture minister at the National Assembly on Thursday afternoon.

The protester shouted “No to Bill 20!” and “My uterus, my priority!” before being taken away by security guards.


No smarts escape from their lips.

And now, a puppy with hiccups because puppy with hiccups:
