Canada

A NZ Politician needs to steal this immigration idea fast

Kellie Leitch is standing for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada and her number one policy is screening all visitors, refugees and immigrants for Canadian Values

She believes that people who want to immigrate to Canada should be asked questions like these:

  • Are men and woman equal, and entitled to equal protection under the law?
  • Is it ever ok to coerce or use violence against an individual or a group who disagrees with your views?
  • Do you recognise that to have a good life in Canada you will need to work hard to provide for yourself and your family and that you can’t expect to have things you want to be given to you?

Wouldn’t it be great if immigrants to New Zealand were screened for New Zealand values? Even if the values immigrants were screened for were liberal left-wing values that would still be useful. Immigrants most likely to harm our society do not share the Left’s compassion for people who are different and unlike the Left they are not tolerant of alternative lifestyles or different religions, cultures and races. I actually think that Labour or Green voting immigration officers would be perfect for the job of screening immigrants for values that will allow them to integrate and assimilate into our society. If the immigration officers were transgender or gay that would be even better as it would be hard for some immigrants to hide their disgust.

Oak Island Money Pit

Hunt for buried treasure in Nova Scotia

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”  

-Albert Einstein

Without a single return, and conflicting theories of what hunters are actually looking for, the so-called Money Pit in Nova Scotia is one of the most incredible self-perpetuating goose chases in the world

For more than 200 years there have been tales about Oak Island, the patch of land that is located off of Nova Scotia, Canada. According to the legend, it is home to a money pit of buried treasure, supposedly left behind by a pirate, Captain William Kidd who lived between the years of 1645-1701. Since that time, there have been a number of expeditions, costing explorers millions of dollars to travel the island in search of the lost treasure to no avail.

This is the story of Oak Island, Nova Scotia, one the most frustrating and intriguing mysteries of all time.

Imagine yourself walking through the trees of a wooded island rumored to hide buried pirate treasure. Suddenly you come across a depression in the ground. It’s roughly circular and there’s a tree standing above it with a branch that has been cut and appears to have been used as a pulley. Your imagination is fired and hope soars. You run off to get your friends and digging equipment.

You and two friends return the next day, shovels in hand, ready to claim your prize. The digging is easy. The dirt loose. Only two feet down your shovel strikes rock. As you clear the dirt away you find a neatly arranged layer of flagstone covering a circular area 13 feet in diameter. You pry the stones out, expecting treasure but there’s only more dirt.

You begin again. Digging down 8 more feet with no luck. Suddenly you hit wood. This is it. You scrap away the dirt only to find a platform of oak logs covering the pit. You pull out the logs and resume your digging.

Ten more feet and still nothing. Finally, you strike wood. This MUST be it. As you clear the area you find another level of oak logs.

Now you know there’s something valuable here. Why else would anyone go to so much trouble?

Now 20 feet below the surface you heave to again. Another 10 feet. Another set of oak boards.

Disappointed, you and your friends decide that you can’t go any further alone. You leave but vow to return to retrieve your treasure.

So, the media are all over the tragic fire in South Auckland story.

Three generations of the family of a prominent New Zealand refugee advocate have died in fatal house fire in South Auckland earlier today.

Friends are rallying at Middlemore Hospital to support Kailesh Thanabalasingham as he fights for his life following a tragic fire that claimed the life of his five-year-old son, his wife and mother-in-law.

Historic call for equality and justice at Canada’s National Parliament

The head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has made a historic address calling for equality and justice at Canada’s National parliament. “Love for all hatred for none” is the slogan of the Ahmadiyya community worldwide and it is this core belief that sets their sect apart from the two majority Muslim sects, Sunni and Shia. I have highlighted the parts of the press release that were of interest to me but you can read the press release in full here.

…His Holiness delivered an historic keynote address entitled “Human values – the foundation for a peaceful world” to an audience of more than 225 people at a special reception… at the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa.

…During his keynote address, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad addressed various issues of global importance, including the risk of a global war, religious freedom, increasing radicalisation and extremism and international relations….

Irrespective of differences of background…All people and all organisations, must collectively endeavour to uphold human values, and strive to make the world in which we live, a better and far more harmonious place.”

…His Holiness admitted that fear of Islam was growing in much of the world. However, he said that fear of the religion itself was completely unnecessary…

“Let me reassure all of you that Islam is not what you commonly see or hear portrayed in the media. As far as my knowledge of Islam is concerned, I only know of that Islam whose teachings are based on its name. The literal meaning of the word ‘Islam’ is peace, love, and harmony and all of its teachings are based upon these noble values.”

Unfortunately, the definition of the word Islam is as in dispute as what the values and teachings of Islam are. It is wrong to say that fear of Islam is completely unnecessary. If all Muslims were from the Ahmadiyya sect then what he says would be true but the reality is that they are a tiny minority that is not  recognised as being true Muslims by the majority Sunni and Shia sects. Also there is a difference between religious Islam and political Islam.

Justin Trudeau should have decked him

Justin Trudeau man-handles an attacker

Justin Trudeau manhandles an attacker

What is it with weak-kneed liberals?

Justin Trudeau should have decked him. He would have gone up in the polls for doing so.

A man accosting Justin Trudeau was immediately shut down by the prime minister himself on Friday in Ontario.

Trudeau had just left from visiting Picone’s Fine Food in Dundas, when the unidentified man tried to get in his face.

A series of photos show the 44-year-old Leader of the Liberal Party with his hands placed on the man as the two appear to exchange words.    Read more »

 The Explosion

A Second of Silence, Then in the Blink of an Eye…

On December 6, 1917, the town of Halifax (Nova Scotia, Canada) was destroyed by the explosion of a cargo ship loaded with military explosives. About two thousand people were killed and almost ten thousands were injured. Until the first nuclear blast, it was the largest man-made explosion in recorded history with an equivalent force of 2.9 kilotons of TNT.

 “Hold up the train. Ammunition Ship Afire in Harbour Making for Pier 6 and will Explode. Guess this will be My Last Message. Goodbye Boys.”

Final Communication from Railway Dispatcher Patrick Vincent Coleman

At 9:04:35 Mont-Blanc exploded with a force stronger than any manmade explosion before it.

The steel hull burst sky-high, falling in a blizzard of red-hot, twisted projectiles on Dartmouth and Halifax.

Some pieces were tiny; others were huge. Part of the anchor hit the ground more than 4 kilometers away on the far side of Northwest Arm. A gun barrel landed in Dartmouth more than 5 kilometers from the harbour.

The explosion sent a white cloud billowing 20,000 feet above the city.

For almost two square kilometers around Pier 6, nothing was left standing. The blast obliterated most of Richmond: its homes, apartments and even the towering sugar refinery. On the Dartmouth side, Tuft’s Cove took the brunt of the blast. The small settlement of Turtle Grove was obliterated.

More than 1600 people were killed outright; hundreds more would die in the hours and days to come. Nine thousand people, many of whom might have been safe if they hadn’t come to watch the fire, were injured by the blast, falling buildings and flying shards of glass.

And it wasn’t over yet.

Within minutes the dazed survivors were awash in water. The blast provoked a tsunami that washed up as high as 20 meters above the harbour’s high-water mark on the Halifax side.

People who were blown off their feet by the explosion, now hung on for their lives as water rushed over the shoreline, through the dockyard and beyond Campbell Road (now Barrington Street).

The tsunami lifted Imo onto the Dartmouth shore. The ship stayed there until spring.

The tsunami created by the explosion swept through the damaged areas, scouring the land and leaving bare mud piled with debris. Fireplaces and furnaces caused fires in other areas, leaving acres of charred wreckage.

By 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, December 6, 1917, a major Canadian city lay in rubble, and most of the undamaged area had no water or heat. All communication was lost with the outside world; the city had no telephone service.

That night, a blizzard hit the region, bringing gale force winds and temperatures of 10-15 F. Thick, wet snow soon hid the victims, hindered the rescuers, and halted relief trains; by morning, ice coated the streets and hills.

The Halifax Explosion was the largest man-made explosion until the first atomic bomb was detonated over Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945.

Oh noes, Red Andrea will now be hurled onto rocks for her apostasy

Andrea Vance is a darling of the left-wing. She is prone to conspiracy theories about mass surveillance and a great mate of Nicky Hager’s.

But she climbed into Angry Andrew Little.

The end of another dismal week for Labour, who’ve slumped to 26 per cent in our latest ONE News Colmar Brunton poll.

Andrew Little’s taken himself off to Canada to lick his wounds.

But it’s not too late, Little. A year ago, Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party confounded expectations to win the federal election… and the hearts of millions of women around the world.

Here’s what Little can learn from Canada’s JFK.

Trudeau didn’t go negative. He had poise even in the face of ridiculous attacks on his hair – and Stephen Harper’s attack ads.   Read more »

Ad in Canada offering protection to threatened Muslim women is banned

Freedom of expression exists in Canada but only for Muslims. This is not the first time that advertisers have refused to run ads that they consider anti-Islamic but have been happy to run ads offensive to non-Muslims. In this latest case, the ad’s purpose was to help Muslim women. Mentioning the reality of honour killing, however, is not allowed because the ad company thinks that the truth is offensive.

In a court hearing scheduled to begin in September, the City of Edmonton will have to justify its silencing of a non-profit group that wants to promote gender equality and protect Canadian women and girls from honour killings.

New Zealand must not imitate Canada’s assimilation methods

Obama as a Borg and Resistance Is Futile

It is very important that immigrants assimilate into their new country’s culture. The Borg from the T.V show Star Trek, are seen as evil because they assimilate by force and because assimilation is total. There is no remnant of the original culture left by the time they have finished and they can no longer think for themselves as they have a hive mind. Their catch cry is ” Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.”  

In Canada, Trudeau’s Liberals are hard at work ensuring that assimilation occurs. They  have been very successful in their attempts to ensure assimilation between Syrian refugee children and Canadian children. The problem is that the children were given no choice in the matter. They were forced to follow the new culture’s laws. Their families are not happy about it as the new culture’s laws are very different to those of their own country.

As you have been reading this you will have assumed that the families I am talking about are the families of the Syrian refugee children. If you assumed that you are wrong.  The children that have been forced to assimilate into the  laws of the new culture are in fact the Canadian children.
