…And may you have many more anniversaries there.
We should never negotiate with terrorists. Yet it looks like the Liberal Charest government in Quebec has done so.
Student leaders and the provincial government reached an agreement over tuition costs in principle on Saturday a day after violent protests left two men critically injured and one of them partially blind.
Tens of thousands of students have been on strike for more than 80 days since the government announced it was going to increase tuition by $1,625 or 75%.
Question for Michael Ignatieff and Jack Layton:
If you feel Omar Khadr should be brought back to Canada because he was a child combatant when he was captured then would you support charging his mother with reckless endangerment or some form of child abandonment?
I’m just saying…
OfficiallyScrewed is an understatement for this one.
Carleton University has searched high and low, near and far, day and night to fill a teaching spot for an introductory sociology course. But alas, the qualifications must have been tough because out of a nation of about 30 million citizens, they chose to hire an alleged terrorist charged with killing 4 people in the 1980 bombing of a synagogue in France.
But that was 29 years ago you say? Maybe, but he was just recently charged and is under house arrest with a condition that he has to wear one of those “anklets” to track his location. He is not even allowed to get in his car and drive to the University without accompaniment.
Hassan Diab, who is charged with murdering four people in the 1980 bombing, will begin teaching a part-time introductory sociology course at Carleton University two days a week until the middle of August.
Diab, whose strict bail conditions prevent him from leaving the house alone, will be required to travel to and from the university with his common-law spouse Rania Tfaily, an Ottawa court heard Monday.
But once at the university, Diab will no longer need an escort.
What? Am I reading that last sentence correctly? Once at the university, he will no longer need an escort? Are you kidding me? The guy is charged with killing 4 people and he is welcome to roam the Carleton University campus without an escort?
Note to self: Do not let my kids attend Carleton University.
ADDENDUM: not but a few minutes after I posted, I saw this article posted on the Ottawa Sun sight a few minutes ago. Diab has lost his teaching gig.
Just breaking on Fox News.
The first of the Obama Commission War Crime Hearings will be Omar Khadr’s case.
Below is a snippit from Darcey’s first piece on the five Security Certificate detainees. The MSM has not covered these new stories with any great detail and this is truly an injustice. I highly urge everyone to go read the whole thing. Darcey has done a great job on this and deserves full credit and full exposure.
Egyptian-born Mahmoud Jaballah came to Canada in 1996 on a false Saudi passport and claimed refugee status. Along with is wife Husnah Al-Mashtoul they founded and ran the Um Al-Qura Islamic school located in Scarborough, Ontario which still remains open and is apparently approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education as a private school.
He was detained in February 2001 under charges from the federal government that he was a member of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad under Ayman al Zawahiri and was alleged to have been the communications person for the 1998 bombings of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 213 people. In two days Mahmoud Jaballah made 20 calls to the United Kingdom, Yemen, Azerbaijan, and Pakistan and Mahmoud continues to evade explanation.
He was released seven months later but was arrested again under a new security certificate because it was found that his fingerprints matched those of Egyptian Islamic Jihad leader Mahmoud Said that were released by Interpol . Jaballah’s middle name is Said and it is assumed that he was using an alias while in Egypt.
And it goes on and on with full text from CSIS on what this man is tied to and what he has done. Do NOT let “human rights” activists persuade you that these men should be set free within the borders of Canada…EVER.
…and then we found out her own husband received such an appointment.
…when her own party used this same method of tender 3264 times in A SINGLE YEAR!!
And now Liberal Marlene Jennings is attacking the RCMP Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass for his comments following the Liberal support to let the anti-terror legislation sunset clause expiry.
Liberal justice critic Marlene Jennings is lashing out at B.C’s top Mountie for criticizing a move by Canada’s opposition parties not to extend controversial anti-terror powers for police.
RCMP Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass says an investigation into the 1985 Air India bombing has been harmed by the expiry of investigative hearings. Such hearings allow authorities to compel potential witnesses in a suspected terror case to testify in front of a judge.
Now that we are spending millions to investigate this tragedy again, the Liberals have taken away the tools the RCMP needed. Marlene Jennings and her Liberal partners should hang their heads in shame for how they have let down the families of every victim of the Air India tragedy down. Her dress down of a ranking RCMP officer is deplorable.
In what amounts to the Liberals coming out and stating “I spit in your general direction!“, they have come out and opposed the Tory plan to extend the Anti Terrorist bill that the Liberals themselves created and passed while in power.
The former Liberal government of Jean Chretien rushed the sweeping federal law through Parliament in the weeks after 9/11, arguing law-enforcement agencies needed extensive new tools to deal with the threat of terror.
But in response to concerns the law would trample civil liberties, the government placed a “sunset” clause on the provisions of the law enabling “preventive arrests” and “investigative hearings.” Both provisions expire at the end of next week, unless both Houses of Parliament pass a resolution to extend them.
The Conservative government tabled a motion yesterday that would extend the provisions for three years.
But now that the Liberals have withdrawn support, the motion looks doomed. Both the NDP and the Bloc Quebecois oppose any extension. A vote on the motion is expected next week.
The Liberal shift surprised national security experts, who were expecting an extension to sail through Parliament.
Has Dion lead the Liberals further left than they have been in a long time? Or is he opposing just to be opposing? I think it is a bit of both.
What’s your take?

Well there is the childhood fearmonger…always good for a laugh.
Then we have the humourous “the end is near, my alien friends will take us to safety” fearmonger…always good for a laugh
Then we have the goofball fearmonger…always good for a laugh.
Then we have the wacky looking (to attract attention) fearmonger…always good for a laugh.
And finally we have the get on a bus, travel across the country, to share the experience fearmonger….
Oops, wrong bus. I meant the following person who plans to ride across the country in a bus and share his experience with the people. And he too is good for a laugh.

The first “Terror Free Oil” gas station will be opening in the USA in the next few days.
The idea is to sell gasoline made from oil orginating in countries friendly to the United States.
Yoohoo!! That’s us up in Canada *waving hands*.
You can find out more information by visiting the Terror Free Oil Initiative. And to answer your question, it does not appear that any Canadian gas stations are part of this initiative.
