Why is there never a #Black Lives Matter spokesvictim around when you really, really need one?
"Investigators believe the kidnapping was precipitated by a shootout involving the Young Buck Killas and the Queens Drive Crips that unfolded April 19 in the 25th-floor hallway of 300 Front St. W."It's a mystery.

"We fought for this and we won, and in that way it is a victory, but it's a victory in a backhanded way," said Janaya Khan of Black Lives Matter Toronto.Cherrypicking much, Janaya?
To accomplish such a complex task, the robot has seven degrees of freedom and an articulated suturing tool, as well as a sensor that can gauge suture tension. This combines with the vision system to accurately place sutures.If it scares big brains like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking... maybe, just maybe you wanna pump the brakes a little.
What they hope to see is a future, not where humans are eradicated, but where humans assist robots rather than the other way around.

OTTAWA -- People with serious criminal records and others using potentially phoney addresses are among those who managed to secure Canadian citizenship, thanks to a system that doesn't do enough to root out fraud, the auditor general has found.**********
In one instance, it took seven years for officials to cotton on to the fact a single address had been used by at least 50 different applicants during overlapping time periods. Of the 50, seven became Canadian citizens.

To the Canadian government, I’m told to tell you to meet the demand. I don’t know what you’re doing, but you’re not doing anything for us. John has been sacrificed, his family has been decimated, and I’m not sure why or what you’re waiting for.Don't worry though... Justin'll save the Demarais family.

...tails we bend over and grab our ankles...
The scale of the waste is so large as to be almost incomprehensible, which may explain why Ontario’s Auditor-General Bonnie Lysyk’s report was a one-day news wonder when it landed last December. Once the count gets into the hundreds of billions, the mind goes numb. If the province announced construction of the Burning Money Biomass Plant, fuelled by bales of five and 10-dollar bills, it probably wouldn’t be capable of destroying $170-billion.If you voted Liberal since the turn of the century... you lost your right to bitch about the cost of electricity.
Nearly a decade later, this week’s leaked document on its upcoming greenhouse-gas strategy suggests Kathleen Wynne’s government has not learned from her predecessor Dalton McGuinty’s mistakes. Glen Murray, a minister with more enthusiasm than knowledge, is in charge of the environmental file; last time around, George Smitherman was the designated enthusiast. Ontarians should be worried.
LAST WORD: Have Ontarians given up?
Ontarians are to believe, therefore, that it’s just a coincidence that the Liberal party’s biggest donors also happen to be the government’s greatest beneficiaries: that the Liberals are somehow impervious to influence from wealthy stakeholders and capable of receiving partisan donations with one hand, and impartially signing off on corporate subsides and contracts with the other.I got nuthin'.

It was removed after the department “determined that some of the details and descriptions provided were inconsistent with the values of the UW spirit program and department of athletics.”This was a no-brainer. Even all my junk mail from Sears and Crappy Tire features mixed race couples and their ambiguously bi-racial progeny frolicking amongst the weed whippers and expresso machines.

Reading is about to become more expensive – and difficult – in Newfoundland and Labrador. To close a budget deficit, the province has announced it is closing 54 of 95 libraries. The move comes just days after Newfoundland became the country’s first province to institute a new 10-per-cent tax on books.**********

Five Ontario drivers who purchased a Porsche Spyder hybrid, which retails for about $1.1 million, got $5,000 rebates from the province’s electric vehicle incentive program last year.Your tax dollars... Kathleen Wynne's obscenely rich friends.
The province also provided similar rebates for dozens of other drivers who purchased a BMW i8 at $362,000 or a Fiskar Karma at $212,000.
Meanwhile, at the other end of the socio-economic scale...
Pharmacist William Brown, who launched the complaint, said dozens of the doctor’s patients alleged they were coerced to fill their prescriptions at a business in Dr. Jatinder Dhillon’s building. The pressure included threats to cut off their “carries” — doses of methadone they can take home rather than having to visit the clinic every day — and physically walking them into the store.Why worry, right? This doesn't affect you.
Perhaps you need to think again...
The number of patients in Ontario has soared from 3,000 to more than 50,000 since 1996. Scores of physicians heavily involved in the field are billing the Ontario government more than $900,000 a year.It's only money, right? This type of thing is why Ontario's debt has doubled since the Liberals were elected in 2003.

.. who couldn't even negotiate an agreement with Ontario's teachers unions...It speaks volumes that Justin Trudeau's point man in the War against Terro... excuse me... "bad people" who do "bad things" that have absolutely no connection to any known religion trots out all the same old tired cliches.
With "involvement" like this... who needs executioners?
“I am outraged by the news that a Canadian citizen, John Ridsdel, held hostage in the Philippines since Sept. 21, 2015, has been killed at the hands of his captors,” Trudeau told media in a hotel ballroom hastily equipped with Canadian flags and a black backdrop for the occasion.His captors, Justin? I guess we can't use the words "Muslim" or "terrorist"... right?
The government “will not comment or release any information to compromise ongoing efforts.”Oh... I bet they won't.
Trudeau and his cabinet are currently on a three-day retreat in Kananaskis, Alta.Of course they are. How convenient... only I'd call it more of a four year retreat.

Dear Steve Rukavina... Not presuming to question your obviously vast & eclectic firearms expertise, but I wager I could take Wendy Mesley to a gun range and have her hitting man-sized targets at 200 meters over iron sights before our coffee got cold.
"Toronto police Det. Sgt. Tam Bui believes a highly trained sniper who shot and killed a Toronto man in his driveway last fall may be in Montreal."FWIW, Sgt. Tam... (kudos btw, to the Toronto Police Service for upholding their tradition of finding a "spokescop" who approximates the ethnic makeup of the murder victim) no "sniper" worthy of the name would be caught dead using a lever action varmint rifle.
The Browning BLR is, in fact, the antithesis of a sniper rifle. It is simply a modern take on the ubiquitous 19th century cowboy rifle... a close range deer blaster known mostly for it's beginner-friendly (half-cock safety, well placed forward swivel) carrying options.
Serious hunters and competition benchrest shooters use bolt action firearms. Putting a scope on a short barrel, lever action bush gun is like those urban Vin Diesel wannabes who screw fibreglass Porsche-lookalike whaletails to the trunklids of their souped up Honda Civics.
For anyone unfamiliar with firearms (which is basically any/every CBC viewer), a 200 meter shot with a rifle is child's play.
Most owners report groups ranging from 1-4 MOA. If you fall into the middle of that range, then 400 yard shots are pushing the limits of taking a deer humanely. This rifle, combined with a 4, 6, or 3-9 power scope offers easy shots on deer up to 400 yards.I guess having a sniper loose on the streets just underscores the importance of banning those nasty, evil lifetaking guns.
Perhaps the CBC should shy away from attempting to say anything at all about guns... and stick to their well-oiled 24/7 unashamed public fellating of once famous/recently deceased music personalities.
