Millions for Terrorists

So, when will Justin Trudeau and Kathleen Wynne start building genderless universities, hospitals and prisons?gender blender

In May, the Ontario provincial government announced plans to begin issuing gender-neutral birth certificates. Ontario also allows residents to opt for an X, rather than an M or F on their drivers’ licenses, and has removed gender information from health care cards entirely.

Most Canadians are opposed to the idea of allowing residents of their own province to opt for something other than an “M” or an “F” on their birth certificates, and roughly half say allowing gender-neutral identification of all types for those who want it is a “bad thing”.
I suspect that that the people most supportive of this genderless nonsense are millennials who grew up on Star Wars movies and are gushingly enthusiastic about beings who more closely resemble alien lifeforms than the female facsimile they were aiming for.
Political affiliation is also related to opinions on genderless birth certificates. Those who voted for the Conservative Party of Canada in the 2015 federal election are far more likely than other Canadians to oppose the plan. Almost four-in-five (77%) oppose their province issuing gender-neutral birth certificates.

The violence in Baltimore started Monday evening and lasted through the night. It spilled over into the middle of Tuesday and by the end of it all, at least 12 people had been shot and at least six dead.

The victims include a 28-year-old man killed during a drug dispute on Bentalou Street, a 37-year-old woman killed in a bullying incident on Gertrude street and a man and woman– both in their twenties, killed during a quadruple shooting on Bonaparte Ave.
