appy Canada Day

Well, look at this, Google put a Canadian Flag on their Canadian site this year. Last year Google didn’t mark Canada Day and claimed that they could not mark all occasions.

It must be our new positioning as leaders of the free world due to Harper’s successful G20 summit. I mean he is responsible for all of it, right.

There is a rally in Toronto tonight, calling for a Pubic Inquiry into the Actions at the G20, being held at 5:30 today at Queens Park. Certainly a worthwhile endeavor but for me the city needs a rest from unrest, at least for the day. 

In fact the City needs its spirits lifted and its pride back and fortunately for all us in the GTA, it is Pride Week and that’s the next rally I will get behind, no tongue in cheek intended. If what you witnessed or felt last weekend didn’t seem like Toronto, then this weekend Toronto is coming back. The Pride parade is on Sunday, July 4th.

Meanwhile for me, I’m going to see all of my grandkids today, in one spot, for the first time.

Appy Canada Day!

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
