I'm flying AC on Friday. One of the last ones required to mask, I guess... at least flight back will be freeeeeeee

 

Why does it take several days to remove a condition?

NORFOLK, ONTARIO: The Justice Centre is pleased to announce that the Crown has dropped charges against former MPP Randy Hiller, former MP Derek Sloan, Pastor Heinrich Hildebrandt, and private citizen, Dan Stasko. The four men were allegedly involved in peaceful rallies against Covid measures in June 2021 and were charged with violating public health orders under the Reopening Ontario Act. After negotiations with Bally Hundal, a lawyer retained by the Justice Centre, the Crown dropped all charges, stating that prosecution was no longer in the public interest.

 

Ontario has implemented lockdowns since the beginning of the pandemic and placed significant restrictions on the right to peaceful protest. In June 2021, the four men were charged for participating in a peaceful demonstration in Norfolk, Ontario. There were approximately 200-300 people at this outdoor demonstration against the Covid measures implemented by the Ontario government.

 

Mr. Hillier, Mr. Sloan, Pastor Hildebrandt and Mr. Stasko were concerned with the Covid restrictions – health orders which significantly curtailed the right to peaceful protest. For exercising their Charter rights to assemble peacefully and protest the government measures, they were charged with offences carrying potential fines of $100,000 to each individual as well as up to one year in prison.

And if they ended up in jail we would literally have political prisoners here in CANADA! Hillier and Sloan both actively held office. The fact we came close is insanity.

To still exercise power and have people willfully give it. Just stop giving it!

Speaking of willfully giving, has anyone been following the EU’s Tricity plan for a 30 million person megalopolis extending between Brussels, The Netherlands and Germany? There’s banter on the internet about the post-COVID energy reduction goals and farming restrictions as being related to an eventual mass buy-up of Dutch land to make way for this city, and/or exercising eminent domain over farmland.

BoE forced to intervene in the bond market to prevent the collapse of several pension funds.

 

Pension funds would have faced 'mass defaults' today without BoE action (msn.com)

 

The Bank of Canada 5yr bond yield dropped after the announcement as investing here seem to be betting that the BoC will need to do the same thing.

The science changes at midnight on September 30th.

 

Any policy change is announced on a date in the future.  It allows for more and more people to be aware of the change.  I flew to Phoenix last week, mask on the way down and in the Vic and Calgary airport and on the way back, nothing.  On the way back yesterday however from Phoenix I didn't see anyone wear one, but the flight from Calgary still about 15% wore them as I boarded.  Maybe they did it cause they felt more safe but I think some still thought you were supposed to.  I've not heard many things that get changed overnight but yeah it can happen.  No big deal...  Was nice to fly again...  Except for a Harbour air flight it's my first trip...

^ Yep and source is exclusively Jawl Properties looks like. Note no difference in counting between a 5 minute visit and an 8 hour one!

 

Also note that they talk up pedestrian traffic on Government street while failing to mention cruise ships or hotel occupancy increases without mentioning how much inventory was removed!

 

As I said, rah-rah to promote MA and BI. Don't think they should be doing it during a campaign after having sat on the data for 3 months!

This will 'help' workers get back to the office!

 

Over 50% of CEOs say they’re considering cutting jobs over the next 6 months — and remote workers may be the first go to

Yep. SA is asking voters if they want more of the same or him. Clearly CoV staff are trying to convince voters that more of the same is very good.

Why would the CoV staff be in favour of Helps and company? Aren't they impacted as much as anyone else living in the city?

"ArriveCan’s $54-million price tag ‘outrageous,’ tech leaders say

Canadian tech leaders who have built apps for large corporate clients have described Ottawa’s $54-million price tag for ArriveCan as outrageous, explaining that in their experience, most apps are built for less than $1-million.

They also question why the government did not turn directly to a Canadian app developer rather than 23 separate contractors and an unknown number of additional subcontractors."

I'm glad things are so outrageous that it's hitting the mainstream but this isn't the only thing that was outrageous about it. But I guess complaining about the price to develop this violation of our charter rights and privacy is something!

Locking in their 15% raise request, job security, not having to work to create and implement a new mandate, etc.

Sadly, $54M to build a $1M app is a fantastic deal compared to some of the other contracts that were let.

Probably being sold to this outfit of which Canada is one of the few partners with the WEF of course.... This is what all those crazy conspiracy theorists talk about when they say social credit is comming here too.

 

The Known Traveller Digital Identity, or KTDI, is a World Economic Forum initiative that brings together a global consortium of individuals, governments, authorities and the travel industry to enhance security in world travel.

The first global collaboration of its kind, KTDI enables more secure and more seamless travel that benefits both travellers and the travel industry.

KTDI enables consortium partners to access verifiable claims of a traveller’s identity data so they can assess their credibility, optimise passenger processing and reduce risk.

KTDI allows individuals to manage their own profile and collect digital ‘attestations’ of their personal data, deciding what data to share and when.

The more attestations a traveller accumulates and shares, the better consortium partners, governments and other parties can provide a smooth and safe travel experience.
