    That’s unexpected. If anything, I would have thought it would be Saskatchewan to be the first to pull something like this off!

    A separatist group calling for Alberta to leave Canada has begun the process to become a federal political party.
    Wexit Alberta’s application arrived on Monday at Elections Canada, which has begun the verification process, according to a spokesperson for the federal agency.
    The group, led by Albertan Peter Downing, aims to do “for Western Canada what the Bloc Québécois did for Quebec,” Downing said.

    It was a Canadian riot, Pook. 4 or 5 people raised their voices in a Tim Hortons in Halifax.

    As I said, a Canadian riot.

    Justin’s head is probably exploding. He’s going to have to address this the right way. Let them form their own parties. Ostensibly this is still a democratic nation.

    Mural of Greta Thunberg, Part 2                                                                             The huge mural of St Greta on the side of the Native Suns Building in Union Square, San Francisco, was painted by Argentine artist Andres “Cobre” Petreselli, who deserves special congratulations for capturing the 16-year old pigtailed high-school dropout’s terrifying thousand-yard stare of disapproval.

    Apparently, the eyes follow San Franciscans wherever they move, even when they are crouching in the streets to take a dump…

    Mural Part 1:     They tried a mural of Greta in Edmonton, Alberta.  It did not go so well in oil country and was immediately defaced.

    CNN strikes (out) again

    CNN contributor April Ryan and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter attacked black Republican Kimberly Klacik on Saturday, implying she drove Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to his death last month after her video exposé on rat and trash infested Baltimore neighborhoods in his Congressional District provoked a national firestorm.  The truth hurts, so suck it up.

    Cummings was a do nothing Dem, like so many others.  Blaming Kim Klacik for Cummings death is preposterous. He was not the worst Democrat, though, John Asshole McCain was, and good riddance. The Evil Ones who still walk among us include Killary, Schiff, Brennan, Comey, Weinstein, Soros, Pelosi, sorry, the list is too long and has to include morons like De Niro and Behar and Carrey and Colbert and Arnold and so many others.

    TDS strikes deep, and into your heart it will seep

    Leftists Cancel Canadian Hockey Icon Over Pro-Veterans Day Poppy Comments

    Leftists in Canada succeeded in getting Canadian hockey icon Don Cherry fired after he made comments about the lack of poppies worn for Remembrance Day by recent immigrants in Ontario.
    The 85-year-old hockey veteran was fired on Remembrance Day by broadcaster Sportsnet after comments made over the weekend.
    Cherry, who is well-known as a firebrand with Conservative opinions, made his comments on the Coach’s Corner segment of Hockey Night in Canada over the weekend alongside long-time co-host Ron MacLean during a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Philadelphia Fliers, the National Post reports.

    Just before playing his taped poppy appeal standing next to his great uncle Sgt. Thomas William Mackenzie’s grave in France, Cherry said: “You people love, that come here, whatever it is, you love our way of life. You love our milk and honey. At least you can pay a couple of bucks for a poppy or something like that. These guys paid for your way life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price.”

    On this Remembrance Day the irony is not lost that freedom of speech, and to peacefully disagree, are rights Canadians enjoy because of the sacrifice.
    Certainly if the network and league don’t like the remarks it is their show and prerogative to criticize.
    He works for them.
    But this is an overreaction, perhaps by some waiting in the weeds to pounce.
    Certainly many of the commenters on this have been over the top with their piling on and frenzy when this was merely Don expressing his opinion, as he has done in a non-politically-correct fashion for 40 years.
