For a Thursday

The federal Liberals would like to get in front of the promises they don't intend on keeping:

The federal government will no longer be able to advertise policy measures that have not yet been adopted by Parliament under new rules designed to curb partisanship in taxpayer funded ads.

Census, schmensus:

It’s always fun to watch the herd of independent minds boldly stampeding toward whatever. And of course the CBC may have been selective in culling the most positive responses. But at the risk of being trampled I would like to ask exactly what is so squeal-makingly exciting about this personal particular data I have to provide or else.

The government has your votes and your taxes. Everything else they will get off of Facebook.

Oh, dear:

The addition of billions of dollars to the federal debt, over and above what’s forecasted in the budget, will place a significant burden on current and future Canadians. For example, interest payments on the federal debt already amount to $25.7 billion annually, more than is spent on employment-insurance benefits or child benefits. If interest rates go up, the cost of carrying debt will increase and even more money will be redirected to interest payments.


“I’d like to be everywhere, but I can’t,” GrĂ©goire Trudeau told the daily newspaper Le Soleil. “I have three children at home and a husband who is prime minister. I need help. I need a team to help me serve people.”

Sophie Trudeau has two nannies, an assistant and a personal chef all at the taxpayers' expense.

She is clearly suffering.

This is why I don't like ribbons:

Researchers from Queen’s University uncovered jarring gaps between how much research is devoted to individual cancers and the actual toll each disease takes — suggesting a clear edge for those backstopped by powerful marketing, and a handicap for cancers with a stigma of personal blame.

The same busybodies that don't want the standard of living to rise for women in the Third World because of "climate change" have no compunction of removing their offspring from the planet:

But in developing countries during the same period, abortions went from 39 to 37 per 1,000 women while the total number of procedures spiked from 39 million to 50 million annually — a situation that the authors blame on lack of access to modern methods of contraception that could have reduced unwanted pregnancies.

And to think that  all that funding for abortion and contraception could have gone to stop malaria seeing as none of that funding made a nudge in keeping foreign serfdoms in their places.

Also: Nigerian pro-lifer doesn't want abortion as an export.

Cue the patronising leftists who do.

Footage from North Korea displays perfectly how paranoid the mindset of the average North Korean is:

A boy being interviewed by the BBC


North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un’s younger sister is among the officials who were awarded key posts at the country’s ruling-party congress, state media said Tuesday.

Kim Jong-Un trusts no one save, perhaps, his sister.

For now.

And now, the new starting line-up for the Atlanta Braves:
