The Trudeau government is surveilling your social media for anti-immigrant and anti-Trudeau views
According to internal emails obtained by True North from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the Trudeau government appointed a team of staffers to surveil the comments of Canadians for “bigoted” immigration criticism.
A total of 12 “communications and social media staffers” were involved in a “social care” team which was tasked with surveilling tweets and Reddit posts by Canadian citizens.
Among those surveilled were Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer, Conservative Immigration Critic Michelle Rempel, and People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier.
On one Reddit thread regarding Toronto hotels housing irregular border crossers, the group scanned comments and noted the anti-Trudeau views of the Canadians involved.
“The comments are
The committee’s surveillance findings were forwarded to the Privy Council Office as well as the deputy minister in the immigration ministry.
Documents also included several pages of tweets by Canadians which were critical of the government’s handling of immigration with labels like “Condemnation of the Trudeau government.”
The government’s database includes all of the tweets which are tagged @MaximeBernier and the immigration department’s official Twitter handle.
It is unclear how the government is using the data being collected about the activities of Canadians on social media.
Meteorologists say Toronto and Southern Ontario will soon see the coldest weather it’s seen so far this year. Temperatures will drop and there will be a good deal of snow to top it off.
An extreme cold weather alert was issued by Toronto’s Medical Officer, Dr. Eileen de Villa.
Environment Canada issues these alerts when the temperature is forecast to be -15 C or lower. They are also issued if wind chill is predicted to make the air feel colder than -20 C.
The temperatures will be felt throughout the GTA.
Environment Canada says that on Thursday night there will be a low of -12 C in Toronto and the wind chill will make it feel like -19 C, accompanied by flurries.
The cold temperatures will carry on into Friday. The Weather Network said it will be “the coldest air we’ve seen so far in 2020.”
It is estimated that Toronto will see the most snow it’s seen all season with 20 cm expected through Saturday and Sunday.
De Villa’s alert from Thursday morning says, “Exposure to cold weather can be harmful to your health.”
“Those most at risk of cold-related illness are people experiencing homelessness or those under-housed, those who work outdoors, people with a pre-existing heart condition or respiratory illness, elderly people, infants and young children.”
Toronto Public Health is asking people to stay dry, wear layers and try to stay indoors if possible.
It is also advised that people keep tabs on friends, neighbours and family who may be more vulnerable to the dropping temperatures.
Canadian Tire has received a $2.7 million subsidy from the Trudeau government to install electric car charging stations across Canada, according to Blacklock’s Reporter.
As well as this, the government of British Columbia has also approved a grant of $275,000.
The nearly $3 million colossal subsidy will be used to build 54 electric charging stations. This subsidy seems to prove that the federal government is willing to spend a great deal on environmental projects.
In 2016, the Department of Natural Resources gave $1.3 million to the Quebec-based AddEnergie for the same purpose of creating electric car charging stations throughout the country.
The sheer size of the government’s subsidy will face scrutiny, as the Department of Natural Resources has previously concluded that these taxpayer funded charging station was used little by drivers. In Ontario and Quebec, for instance, these charging stations had as little as one to three customers a day.
“This is pure corporate welfare. Canadian Tire had revenues of $14 billion last year. Why on earth are taxpayers giving them a gift of $2.7 million to build something that people are barely going to use?” said Canadian Taxpayers Federation federal director Aaron Wudrick.
“When it comes to fighting climate change this government wants to hit regular people with a carbon tax, but give big corporations big taxpayer subsidies. They’re talking out of both sides of their mouth.”
Notorious trans rights activist and alleged child sex predator Jessica Yaniv has made yet another dubious claim. This time, Yaniv has accused The Post Millennial’s Amy Eileen Hamm of sexual assault.
In a post to Twitter late Wednesday night, Yaniv accused Hamm of misconduct at a British Columbia courthouse. The misconduct would have taken place while Yaniv was appearing in court on weapons charges.
In the tweet, Yaniv also accuses the B.C. Provincial Court, the B.C. Sheriff’s department, and the B.C. RCMP of doing “nothing” about the assault.
“They are investigating that, but put that BITCH behind bars,” tweeted Yaniv. “She HURTS PEOPLE and the #LGBTQ Yes I am furious.”
Yaniv falsely accused Hamm of photographing her in the women’s washroom during a recess in her recent court appearance—an accusation that the authorities on the scene were quick to dismiss.
The weapons charges stem from a livestream with YouTuber and TPM columnist Blaire White where Yaniv was attempting to clear her name of allegations against her for sexual misconduct with minors and ended up brandishing illegal weapons.
The Post Millennial reached out to Hamm, who said,“During court recess, I entered the women’s washroom and saw JY standing in the common area. I immediately backed out of the room, fearing for my own safety and not wanting to be confined in a small room with this person.”
This latest false allegation comes only days after a video of Yaniv actually assaulting reporter Keean Bexte went viral on Twitter.
Yaniv rose to prominence after filing 16 human rights complains with the provincial human rights tribunal wherein she accused numerous salons and salon workers of transphobia for their reluctance and eventual refusal to wax Yaniv’s male genitalia.
All salons that Yaniv accused of transphobia had specifically told Yaniv that they only provided their service to female genitalia. At the time of the waxing conundrum, Yaniv was still using her given male name on social media, which could have caused all the more confusion for the estheticians
New audio released by much-maligned news network CNN tonight reveals a tense post-debate moment between Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren says in the clip.
Sanders replies, “What?” Warren then repeats the accusation, and Sanders says, “You know, let’s not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.”
Warren then replies: “Anytime.”
“You called me a liar. You told me … all right, let’s not do it now,” Sanders says.
Warren then walked away without shaking Sanders’ hand. They are then interrupted by Tom Steyer, who says, “I don’t want to get in the middle. I just want to say hi, Bernie.”
One America News’ Jack Posobiec quipped, “How is Bernie going to stand up to China and Russia when he can’t even stand up to Lyin’ Liz?”
CNN claims that the audio emerged after staffers discovered backup audio files.
#CNNisTrash trended for most of the day today on social media as the public reacted to what many perceive to be an anti-Sanders bias from the network.
The heated exchange comes after CNN recently reported that sources said that Sanders expressed doubt to Elizabeth Warren on whether a woman can win the presidency.
Bernie Sanders called the allegations “ludicrous,” saying “it’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened.”
