Trudeau gaslights Canadian women and ignores their safety 26.7.2018 - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada Two weeks ago, a new study by the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability confirmed the state of domestic terrorism against women in this land. A woman is murdered by a man every other day in Canada, with at least 78 known acts of femicide up to July 1 (the numbers are likely higher given that it is based largely on media reports). A disproportionate number of those murdered were Indigenous women. That very same day, there was audible silence from the self-proclaimed "feminist" Trudeau government. Instead of declaring that the time had come to finally launch a National Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls (NAP), Trudeau was in Latvia, trying to match the toxic masculinity of Donald Trump by whipping out hundreds of millions of dollars to continue funding Canadian troops to engage in endless war games through the year 2023 against a non-existent threat to the people of this land. Indeed, instead of showing solidarity with Canadian women, Trudeau chose ...

How Canada's military shapes media coverage of deployments 17.7.2018 - News for the rest of us
Yves Engler For the military, shaping media coverage of deployments is what roasting a marshmallow is to a summer camper's S'mores; there isn't one without the other. Even before beginning a small "peacekeeping" mission, the Canadian forces have an elaborate media strategy. At the end of June, Chief of the Defence Staff Jonathan Vance brought journalists with him on a visit to Mali. They toured the facilities in Gao where an advance team was preparing for Canada's UN deployment to the African nation. An Ottawa Citizen headline described Vance's trip as part of an effort at " selling  the public on the Mali mission." The tour for journalists was followed by a "technical briefing" on the deployment for media in Ottawa. " No photography , video or audio recording for broadcast purposes" was allowed at last week's press event, according to the advisory. Reporters were to attribute information to "a senior government" official. But, the rules were different at a concurrent departure ceremony in Trenton. " ...
