Global poverty shows no sign of abatement

Posted on 12 December 2019

Drawing room conversations sometimes tend to broach solemn subjects for leisurely discussion. But how many of them are supported by facts? If I were to say that global poverty is on the rise, you could doubt such an off-handed statement. However, you would be wrong because this is a cold, hard truth. Let’s back it up with some numbers, and you’ll see. Poverty has a set definition in ...

U.S. Transnational Corporations Concoct Western Alienation

Posted on 08 November 2019

So-called "western alienation" didn't start in the last federal election.  But it seems that is has gotten a new footing since the last October 20th federal election with talk of "Wexit".
It is apparent that "Wexit" and the champions of "Western Alienation" led by Alberta's Jason Kenney are all mouthpieces of the U.S. political-military-industrial complex which substantively ow ...

Maxime Bernier: People's Party Unveils Hideous Signs

Posted on 02 October 2019

I have seen some very impressive political campaign signs by obviously very talented graphic designers in this election.
It's just too bad that it seems Max Bernier's People's Party missed the boat on these excellent graphic designers.
On my way from Ottawa to visit my girlfriend in Gatineau, I was quite surprised to run into one particular "crappily" designed People's Party sign.
It feat ...

Jagmeet Singh: Bearded look promises to lead NDP to worst election defeat ever

Posted on 24 September 2019

Let's get this straight.  I highly respect Sikh communities in Canada and I have no personal problems with beards. I share an Indo-Canadian background with Mr Singh and I have also had a beard. And I also recognize that Canadians in general have no issue with open Sikhs with turbans in the RCMP, local police and even as local members of Parliament. However, one this is clear ...

Racial Profiling: Loblaws Targets Visible Minorities In Contrast With Farm Boy

Posted on 02 September 2019

Here’s is why I am impressed with Farm Boy and highly disappointed with Loblaws when it comes to race relations.
A couple of days ago, I had needed to get organic toothpaste that’s free of fluoride and a new toothbrush.  So I decided to venture to the Loblaws on Carlton and Church Streets in downtown Toronto.
This is a Loblaws I have visited many times.
So, I go to Isle 14 ...

10 Reasons Why New York Subway System is America's Shame

Posted on 30 July 2019

New York City has some fabulous pleasant surprises but this doesn't include their subway system.

I was recently in New York City.  The city's subway system is pretty shocking when compared to other subway systems around the world.
This includes the Toronto Transit Commission's (TTC) subway which is well-maintained and easy for most any visitor to the city to figure out.
A ...

Trudeau demonstrates complete hypocrisy on Trump's Tweets

Posted on 17 July 2019

Prime Minister Trudeau's reply to U.S. President Trump's recent controversial Tweet ‘That’s not how we do things in Canada’ is complete hypocrisy.
What Mr Trudeau really meant to say is that in Canada, we don't "tweet" our racism.  We say nice things on tweet and other public places but practice institutionalized racism behind closed doors.
Mr. Trudeau's most recent demo ...

People's Party: Is Maxime Bernier Little More Than a Handsome Robot?

Posted on 12 July 2019

My question for all Canadians voters is who the heck elected Maxime Bernier?

In his speeches, Mr Bernier seems to take a delight in stringing together a bunch of vapid clichés.

It often sounds like he has been inspired by the Randy, a character on the Trailer Park Boys who learned his language skills from a cereal box.

Bernier might not only be the least original Canadian pol ...
