THE BROKEN BLUE MACHINE
The Conservatives will follow Andrew Scheer into the 2019
election, after the young Saskatchewan MP won an upset victory at the party’s leadership convention in Toronto Saturday night. So read the headlines of most newspapers…
Andrew WHO!!!
Really!!! Who is this Andrew Scheer? Who ever heard of him? You got to recognize when you are beaten and left for dead… The Liberal Party in my opinion got it right. During the last Federal election. They had no one in their stable of possible candidates that stood any chance of winning. So what did the Liberals do… revive a dead horse. The Trudeau brand was once again brought to the Canadian political spot light.
The Liberals put their bets on a dead horse written by a pretty boy with no real experience at anything. Just that his last name was Trudeau.
And much like Trump won the U.S. election on name recognition. Trudeau was crowned King of Canada.
A man that lived as the prince of Canada for years in the shadows of his father Pierre Trudeau. A man that revolutionized Canadian politics and gave the Liberal party a point of reference.
A point of reference that made his brand stand out as the champion of the people.
Like really… Who is doing the thinking for the conservatives? Do you really think that this Andrew Scheer has a chance?
Really…. Do you not think that Jagmeet Singh the upcoming NDP candidate could win? With the huge population of South/East and Central Asia population in Canada? Do you not think that this is the trojan horse awaiting on the side lines to truly change the face of Canadian
politics?
Really, nose bleed Andrew who… Poster boy for Wonder Bread is going to take out King Trudeau or stand a chance against the huge East/South Asian population in Canada?
Really… First question.
Who does Andrew appeal to? The conservative party? What party?
The conservative following? Where were they during the last election?
If I was at the helm of the conservative party I would have brought back Preston Manning to resurrect the conservative party. There is a candidate with a solid name and one that truly worked for the betterment of Canadians at large. A man that built a party from grass roots only to be taken out by the conservatives greed. Ernest Preston Manning, PC CC AOE is a conservative Canadian politician. He was the only leader of the Reform Party of Canada, a Canadian federal political party that evolved into the Canadian Alliance.
Sad to see this exceptional candidate not recognized for his true potential and shun out for being a one man show.
Something Canada truly needs. We do not need the NDP to strong arm us into the possible acceptance of Sharia law. We can’t afford to keep spending money we don’t have through the Liberals sponsorship of refugees and foreign aid to save the globe.
Come on people. We need true leadership. We need someone that is not about the party but about the hard working Canadian that struggles to pay his/her bills. To the Canadian that can’t afford the simplest of necessities. To the middle class families that work like modern day slaves to give their children an adequate way of life.
The best the conservatives could come up with is this “YES” man Andrew. Are you kidding me? Maybe Trump is right. The system is broken and the swamp of greed and pathetic politics needs to be exposed. Much as he is doing in the U.S. Go Trump Go. Invade Canada please before we are invaded from within.

The Doctor Game By W. Gifford-Jones M.D.

The Doctor Game

By W. Gifford-Jones M.D.
Do I Get a Flu Shot?
Sir William Osler, one of the world’s great doctors, suggested a treatment for the common cold. He said, “Hang your hat on the bedpost, go to bed, start sipping whisky, and stop when you see two hats!” He was stressing humorously that there wasn’t any sure treatment for the common cold. Now, during the flu season, I’m often asked if I get a flu shot. But there’s a big difference between a cold and the flu. So read this column with reservation, and remember I am not your doctor.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi received the Nobel Prize in 1937 for his research on vitamin C. At the time vitamin C could only be extracted from adrenal glands and massive amounts of orange juice.
Life Extension, a medical publication, reports that, as we age, our blood and immune cells contain lowered amounts of vitamin C. This can have a major effect on a number of diseases.
For instance, diabetes patients and those suffering from gastritis show one half the normal amount of vitamin C in their blood. Cancer and arthritis patients one third the amount, and following a traumatic accident or a surgical operation, vitamin C levels can drop to as low as 10 percent!
So it’s vital to have sufficient amounts of vitamin C in the blood at all times to energize the immune system. Why? Because immune cells have vitamin C transporter molecules embedded in their membranes, and these actively pump C into cells when more is required.
It’s hard to believe that, when infection or surgery occurs, transporter molecules ensure that immune cells have as much as 100 X more vitamin C as normal in the blood. But this transfer isn’t possible unless the blood always has a big reservoir of C.
Never forget this fact as this reservoir can be life-saving. For instance, vitamin C can reduce the incidence of pneumonia by as much as 80 percent. This is important as the death rate from pneumonia in elderly people is 16 percent, even with the use of antibiotics! And flu kills thousands of people annually in North America.
Studies show that 23 percent of North Americans have low levels of vitamin C, affecting their immune system. Researchers say that unexplained fatigue may be due to vitamin C deficiency. And skin infections, such as boils, can be helped by even a small dose of 1,000 milligrams of C daily. And older people are particularly at risk of cancer as the immune system ages.
Dr. Linus Pauling, a Nobel Prize winner, reported that high doses of vitamin C could prevent colds. Now, a new study shows that 1,000 mg. of C decreases the risk of a cold by 50 percent in soldiers and athletes undergoing heavy stress. And research also shows that high doses of C can even decrease the risk of heart attack.
So I don’t get a flu shot. But why? 19 years ago I suffered a severe coronary attack. I knew of Pauling’s research so I decided to take 10,000 milligrams of Medi-C Plus, a high dose of vitamin C available in health food stores, rather than risk the many potential complications of cholesterol-lowering drugs.
So my blood is always loaded with C. This means my immune cells can obtain adequate amounts of C if I suddenly develop a cold, the flu or other viral diseases such as meningitis or encephalitis. Big C will also help if I face the stress of surgery. And I have not had a cold for years.
I also realize that, as a senior, I need to maintain a high level of immunity for unexpected stress as getting old is a dangerous disease.
So what should you do? Remember, how I treat myself is one thing. You should take the advice of health authorities and your family doctor, realize that the flu virus kills, and get a flu shot. But it’s also prudent to have high amounts of vitamin C in the blood at all times for added immunity protection.

Don’t “Dessert” Your Weight-Loss Goals

Don’t “Dessert” Your Weight-Loss Goals
You’ve committed to losing weight and changing your lifestyle forever. So far, things are going great: You’ve lost 10 pounds and feel like a new person, even with pounds left to lose. Then temptation rears its sugary, carb-loaded head when your co-worker brings in leftover brownies from last night’s party. What to do? Here’s how to handle this type of temptation and stay true to your weight-loss goals without going crazy.
Click the delete button: Unless you’re a hermit, your weight-loss journey will take you through all sorts of tempting circumstances. Eat away and you’ll gain, not lose; indulge “just this once” and you may find yourself repeating the performance. While moderation is the key to weight-loss success, you also need determination and the will to “just say no.” After all, “yes” is what may have gotten you into this position in the first place. So, when that email circulates announcing, “Leftover brownies are in the break room – enjoy,” your first thought should be to delete the message from your In Box (and your memory) and move on with your day. If the announcement reminds you it’s time to eat, go prepare your scheduled healthy meal and leave the brownies for co-workers who don’t have your goals in mind.
Dig in (and then dig yourself out): Another strategy to stick to your weight-loss goals in the face of temptation is to indulge – but just a little. Haven’t had a brownie in weeks and feel as if you’re about to go crazy? Then respond to your co-worker’s announcement by eating one – or even a bite or two. Remember, healthy weight loss is about making healthy changes that keep you motivated; you’re changing your life, not eliminating all the “fun.” So dig in, savor the moment, and then dig yourself out.
One of the best strategies for achieving meaningful, life-altering weight loss is to remove temptation from the home. If your cupboards are overflowing with Twinkies and your freezer’s bursting with ice cream sandwiches, you’re in for a long haul. But if you remove it all, what do you have for the proverbial rainy day? When that brownie offer comes a ‘knockin, why not answer the door by saving one for a few days or a week – until you’re ready for it? Perhaps the brownie email came in on a Wednesday, but you’ve already designated Saturdays as your “cheat” days. And his brownies are your absolute favorite! So save one for then, when you know you’ll enjoy it instead of feeling guilty. Note: This does not mean hoarding dessert after dessert every time opportunity arises, or you’ll be right back where you started – in a house filled with temptation.
Don’t think of weight loss as a number; think of it as a lifestyle change that gets you to a healthy weight – and then keeps you there. Talk to your chiropractor about these and other common-sense strategies to reach your desired weight and health goals.

Ontario Providing Faster Access to Mental Health Services for Thousands of People

Province Investing in More Psychotherapy, Supportive Housing and Services for Youth
Ontario is providing faster access to mental health and addictions services across the province, with new investments that will ensure thousands more people can get the support they need when they need it.
Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, was at Routes – Social Resource Centre today to announce that Ontario is supporting:
More access to therapy to help thousands of people living with conditions like anxiety and depression learn strategies to improve their mental health and be more successful in their daily lives. Ontario is working with Health Quality Ontario and other stakeholders to develop a provincial structured psychotherapy program, while also supporting the expansion of structured psychotherapy offered through existing partners. Structured psychotherapy offers evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, to people online or in-person through individual or group sessions.
Up to nine hubs where young people aged 12 to 25 can receive walk-in, one-stop access to mental health and addictions services, as well as other health, social and employment supports under one roof. These integrated youth service hubs help with early identification and intervention to prevent more serious issues from developing later in life. Funding will help expand and improve youth service hubs, while exploring the creation of up to five new sites across the province.
Up to 1,150 additional supportive housing units across Ontario for people living with mental illness and addictions, especially those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. These housing units would provide a secure and affordable place to live, as well as services such as counselling.
The province is working to transform the mental health and addictions system into one that is equitable, high-performing and recovery-oriented, where every person in Ontario can access consistent, high-quality services, no matter where they live. This includes ensuring mental illness is treated like any other chronic disease.
Expanding access to mental health and addictions services is part of the government’s plan to build a better Ontario through its Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care, which is providing patients with faster access to the right care, better home and community care, the information they need to stay healthy and a health care system that’s sustainable for generations to come.
QUICK FACTS
Ontario is investing $140 million over three years to support these initiatives, which will be followed by a sustained increase in funding of $50 million annually. This investment is in addition to the $3.7 billion that Ontario invested in mental health and addictions services in 2015-16.
These measures respond to recommendations released by the provincial Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council in its second annual report, Moving Forward: Better Mental Health Means Better Health.
Approximately 30 per cent of people in Ontario will experience a mental health and/or substance abuse challenge at some point in their lifetime.
With this new investment, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will provide almost 17,000 units of supportive housing for people living with mental illness or addictions, and other vulnerable people.
This investment is part of a cross-government effort to support people living with mental illness and addictions as well as their caregivers, which includes recent initiatives such as making the corrections systems more responsive to mental health and addictions and improving access to local mental health services for children and youth.
Ontario’s Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council was formed in 2014 and consists of representatives from diverse sectors, including mental health and addictions experts and people with lived experience.
“Ontario’s plan to transform our mental health and addictions system will ensure that every person in Ontario who needs it will have access to high quality, evidence-based care that is accessible and equitable. By expanding effective mental health and addictions services, people living with mental illness and addiction will be able to access services in their community earlier, helping to address challenges before they become a crisis.”
— Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“Our government continues to work to address gaps in the mental health system, and increasing the number of Integrated Youth Service Hubs is one example of how we’re doing just that. These hubs are great resources for youth and their families, and will help improve outcomes for those most at risk.” — Michael Coteau, Minister of Children and Youth Services
“Ontario’s Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council has worked very hard over the past two years to provide our best advice to Minister Hoskins so we are very pleased to see his leadership on this important part of the health care system.” — Susan Pigott, Chair, Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council
“Today’s announcement is a welcome signal of the government’s commitment to mental health and addiction. It’s a great first step towards implementing the recommendations of the Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council to address critical service gaps in the areas of supportive housing, psychotherapy and children and youth services. We’re pleased that the Minister has listened to the Council, and we look forward to continuing to work with all levels of government so that we can make positive, substantive change for the people in Ontario struggling to access addiction and mental health services and supports.” — Gail Czukar, CEO, Addictions and Mental Health Ontario
“These investments in housing, psychotherapy and youth hubs indicate that the government has taken the advice of the Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council, and prioritized its funding accordingly. We believe today’s announcement is evidence of a commitment to mental health and addictions funding, which will help us to better serve Ontarians who are in growing need of our services.”
— Camille Quenneville, CEO, Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario
“Today’s investment is a significant step toward improving access to mental health care. Making life-saving therapies and supportive housing available to more Ontarians, and supporting youth with the right tools and programs will put us on the right path.” — Dr. Catherine Zahn, President and CEO, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Canadians will have their say on the country’s Poverty Reduction Strategy

Canadians will have their say on the country’s Poverty Reduction Strategy

Government of Canada launches consultations and advisory committee

– The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, today launched two initiatives to support the development of Canada’s Poverty Reduction Strategy: a nation-wide consultation process and a call for nominations for a ministerial advisory committee on poverty. By opening the dialogue on how to reduce poverty, the Government of Canada reiterate its commitment to find solutions to improve the economic well-being of all Canadian families so they can have a real and fair chance to succeed.

The nation-wide consultation process will give Canadians an opportunity to have their say on reducing poverty through a Poverty Reduction Strategy engagement website, including discussion forums and online town halls. The online engagement will be complemented by roundtables with provincial, territorial and municipal governments; Indigenous organizations; businesses; community organizations; academic experts and Canadians who have experienced poverty. The Government of Canada will also work with Indigenous organizations to ensure the participation of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis in the consultations. The input and feedback collected will provide valuable information which will help shape the Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy.

The Government also launched a call for nominations to invite interested individuals who have experience with poverty and poverty reduction to apply for the ministerial advisory committee on poverty.

The advisory committee’s work will complement these public consultations. The committee will act as a sounding board and a forum for in-depth discussion on issues related to poverty reduction. Specifically, the committee’s role will be to discuss and test ideas generated in the public consultations and provide independent expertise and advice on issues that could include:

  • identifying priority areas of action;
  • aligning federal government actions to reduce poverty with those of the provinces and territories; and
  • replicating innovative approaches to poverty reduction at the national level.

The committee will be composed of leaders, practitioners, and experts in poverty reduction from areas such as academia, service delivery and business, as well as international academics or researchers on poverty. It will also include people who have experienced poverty.

Another initiative to support the Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy—the Tackling Poverty Together (TPT) research project—was announced in September 2016. Work is currently underway in Saint John, and will continue in Trois-Rivières, Regent Park (Toronto), Winnipeg, Tisdale, and Yellowknife. This analytical research project will involve case studies of six communities across Canada that are concerned about poverty issues. The project will assess the impact of federal poverty reduction programs locally in communities, based on the opinions of citizens including people with experience of poverty.

Through Budget 2016, the Government of Canada has invested in a range of initiatives to support poverty reduction including: the Canada Child Benefit, increases to the Old Age Security’s Guaranteed Income Supplement, the Canada Learning Bond and the Homelessness Partnering Strategy.

Quote

“Poverty is a complex issue that affects more than 3 million Canadians. It has many faces—children and families, seniors, Indigenous people, people with disabilities and immigrants. We need to work together with our partners, and with all Canadians, to find a solution. Every Canadian should have the chance to build a good life for themselves and their families. We need to hear from you about how we can make it happen.
– The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development

Erin O’Toole Announces Plan to Restore Canada’s Place in the World

Erin O’Toole Announces Plan to Restore Canada’s Place in the World

 

Halifax, Nova Scotia; February 2, 2016

 

Today, Erin O’Toole announced his plan to restore Canada’s principled foreign policy. His detailed plan will ensure that Canada will once again stand with our allies for security at home and play a role in global security commensurate with our size, abilities and values as a nation.

 

An Erin O’Toole Government will implement a principled foreign policy, including:

  • Support Israel as a democratic, Jewish state with secure borders, including by ending Canadian funding for UNRWA, vocally opposing efforts to isolate Israel, and establishing an exchange program between the CAF and the IDF;
  • Stand up to Russian Aggression, including by implementing the Ukraine-Canada Defence and Security Cooperation Agreement;
  • Advocate for Free Trade and vigorously defend Canadian interests in trade disputes;
  • Strengthen our relationship with the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, key traditional allies, Commonwealth members and partners by taking a lead role in promoting a Canada-UK-Australia-New Zealand trade and security pact, which could include reciprocal freedom to live, work, and invest in these four like-minded countries and a defence partnership;
  • Push for UN reform instead of sacrificing our principles in a bid for a Security Council seat; and
  • Recognize that China presents economic opportunities for Canada but that we can’t allow those opportunities to blind us to human rights abuses, hacking and corporate espionage and increasingly worrisome signs of expansionism in the South China Sea.

 

O’Toole released his full, detailed plan for Canadian foreign policy, entitled Restoring Canada’s Place in the World, available at https://erinotoole.ca/restoring-canadas-place/

 

Quotes:  

“I will restore Canada’s place as a dependable ally and principled voice for freedom and democracy around the world. – Erin O’Toole, MP Durham (Ontario).   

 

“The Trudeau Liberals have brought us back to the failed era of Liberal foreign policy – appeasing dictators, abandoning our friends, and pursuing the myth of Canada as an ‘honest broker’ without interests in the world. It is clear Justin Trudeau is willing to sacrifice our security and relationships and risk the lives of Canadian soldiers in his multi-year bid to curry favour for a non-permanent Security Council Seat.” – Erin O’Toole, MP Durham (Ontario).

Passing of Regional Councillor Nancy Diamond

Passing of Regional Councillor Nancy Diamond

 

Whitby, Ont. – On behalf of The Regional Municipality of Durham, we send our deepest sympathies to the family, friends, and council colleagues of Regional Councillor Nancy Diamond, following her sudden passing. She faithfully served her community for many years.

 

“Councillor Diamond was a formidable force in municipal politics,” said Regional Chair and CEO Roger Anderson. “She was a strong female leader at a time when it was less common to see women in senior public service roles. She also led many local community endeavours and will be truly missed.”

 

Nancy was born in 1941 and served as Oshawa’s mayor for 12 years from 1991 to 2003, after sitting as a city councillor from 1988 to 1991. In 2010, she returned to Oshawa City Council and Durham Regional Council, and was re-elected in 2014. Among her many accomplishments, Councillor Diamond championed the creation of a university in Oshawa, economic development and transportation initiatives. She pursued solutions to gridlock and the development of social housing with admirable determination. Councillor Diamond embraced multiculturalism, keeping taxes low, and the advancement of local and national prosperity.

 

A book of condolences will be available at The Regional Municipality of Durham Headquarters, located at 605 Rossland Road East. Flags at Regional Headquarters have been half-masted in her memory. Her family will be in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult and private time.

“I live a dream in a nightmare world”

TO CARD OR NOT TO CARD THIS IS THE DILEMMA
The media has given Peel Region quite a beating over it’s practice of CARDING. Carding, which is officially known as the Community Contacts Policy, is an intelligence gathering policy of the Toronto Police Service involving the stopping, questioning, and documenting of individuals when no particular offense is being investigated.
The big question is why is carding such an issue in a municipality like Peel? Secondly why are people wanting to take power away from the police?
The issue has been played as a racial one. Those opposing carding claim that some ethnic groups have been targeted by police.
In my opinion life is simple. So why complicate it? If you have nothing hide you have nothing to worry about. I would actually welcome being carded as I would know the police have me in their records in case of emergency and or actual incident. Those opposing carding play the race card when they should be gathering their race types and educate them on portraying to the general public a less of criminal element.
Let’s be real. If you look like trouble. Trouble will find you. Black/white/green or purple. I am against taking away police tools to keep us safe. It is not about freedoms and rights. It is about being responsible and protecting the community from those that look threatening. We in North America are playing a dangerous game. It appears that it has become chic to oppose police. It appears that every time an officer makes a mistake for whatever reason. The media is quick to create a sense of injustice and hysteria. This is wrong. We forget that police officers have one of the toughest jobs. They go out there day in and day out and have to face some of the most disturbing situations. From a mere traffic stop, that could cost an officers life. To murders and riots. What is going to end up happening is we are going to turn our police services from serving and protecting to answering calls to pick up pieces. No officer wants to discharge their weapon. No officer wants to take people into custody. Circumstance/timing and environment play a key role. By adding the fear to officer of legal persecution ontop of loss of life and possible liability. What we will end up getting are competent cops leaving the force. This forcing the police services to lower the standards even more to fill the gaps. This producing what I call ‘THIRD WORLD COPS’. Cops with little or no education. Limited training, that are willing to work for next to nothing and are dispensable.
With our population on the rise across North America. Crime is and has become more a priority. Policing is the key to keeping our societies civil. By weakening the power of the police we are weakening our safety. I personally think that they should be teaching at schools respect for the police and what to do when an officer approaches. On the other side of the coin. I think police officers need to get more training in how to cope with stress and situations that put them in extreme duress to make extraordinary decisions. I do not think that if an act by police is intentional and out of malice and or with some sort of personal agenda should not go reprimanded. Simple rule you break the law you have to pay. But as society we must be sensitive to the profession. I say if you have nothing to hide. Why oppose carding? We need to keep the criminals and those with intent off our streets.
