... reshape the government to better push through specific agendas unchallenged.
When PM Harper prorogued the government there was a whole lot of complaining, including from this blogger! Being an all around government critic, Trudeau's potential dictatorial move isn't getting my approval! I don't care about his hair or his socks!
This decision is made."Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will decide in mid-August whether to pursue a ban on handguns as part of a new legislative agenda he would outline in a fall Throne Speech, a senior official says"
The legislation was tabled in March and the Danforth operation cemented the deal!
Digression- And I think it's important.
1- The van attack in Toronto earlier this year featured an Armenian driver the day of the Armenian coup-
"As the Armenian identified driver of the Ryder van attacked - Coincidentally, or not so much, Armenia had a coup on the very same day. It's pretty clear there was western involvement in the coup"
2- The Danforth Shooter was of Pakistani descent.
"Hussain was the son of Canadian parents of Pakistani origin who have been struggling through major challenges"And Pakistan is front and center in the news immediately afterwards with their soft coup leader firmly ensconced in power.
Anyone but me find that odd and oddly coincidental? - That both incidents tie into the larger geo political situations in an extremely close time frame?
Back to the Globe and Mail article:
"Mr. Trudeau has asked a team of advisers to examine the pros and cons of proroguing Parliament and starting over with a fresh policies and priorities for the period leading to the election in October, 2019. The official said the Prime Minister wants them to report in time for the Liberal cabinet retreat on Aug. 22 in Nanaimo, B.C.
The Liberal government has not had an agenda-setting Throne Speech since the first one, in December, 2015.
A proposal to ban handguns is under serious consideration, according to a senior official, who was not authorized to speak on the record. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and senior civil servants have been tasked with examining the idea of a ban, which Toronto City Council endorsed after a mass shooting this week that killed two and injured 13.
The Liberal government does not expect much opposition to a law banning handguns, especially among urban voters, the official said. Statistics Canada says 60 per cent of violent gun-related crimes in Canada in 2016 involved handguns.
Remember my mention of the fact that Canada already has very strict gunlaws?On Tuesday, Mr. Goodale said any such changes to Canada’s handgun laws would require a “significant remodelling” of the Criminal Code."
"The code already imposes tough restrictions on handguns that include background checks, a two-day safety course, joining a shooting club to get a permit to transport the weapon and a waiting period if the buyer does not already own a gun.
And Julie Payette is one questionable Governor General- Let's just say she's a spouse abuser.The government tabled new firearms legislation in March that is still before the House of Commons. If Governor-General Julie Payette is asked to prorogue Parliament, the firearms bill would be changed to include a handgun ban, the official said.
Gun retailers have to keep records going back 20 years...."The current firearms legislation would require gun retailers to retain records of firearms inventory and sales for at least 20 years and the buyer of a hunting rifle or shotgun to present a firearms licence"
"Mr. Goodale also plans to raise the issue of a national requirement for health-care and other professionals to report certain mental-health issues to police when he meets with public-safety and justice ministers this fall. The family of Faisal Hussain, the suspect in the Toronto shooting, said he suffered from depression and psychosis.
Of course this reporting of mental health issues is only relevant regarding legally purchased guns. There is no indication the Danforth shooting was done with a legally owned gun.Doctors, therapists, teachers and social workers can inform police if someone indicates they might harm themselves or another individual with a gun. Mr. Goodale would like to discuss with his provincial counterparts a Quebec law that requires these professionals to report such threatening behaviour to police"
Recall my earlier commentary about the way the shooting was being spun?
Here's- just a tidbit- read it all
"Thinking more about this random news story, directly above, about some unnamed person claiming 8 years ago the alleged shooter had been investigated by the police under the mental health act. What's the point? Then, I had an aha moment!
This unsubstantiated bit of gossip connects Canada's new planned gun legislation directly to this most recent incident- Directly. I can draw a straight line to this 'news' aka spin and the new legislation
This hearsay spread through the media provides the necessary background rhetoric for the impending spin to justify the passing of the new gun legislation- I can already hear the media delivering there serious sermons from their pulpy pulpits Cui bono? Not me and you! But at least now I understand why this 'news' was planted in the media"And Boom! It's just as I said it would be!
Problem, Reaction, Solution- Strategy of Tension
Globe and Mail continues with Dictator Trudeau's possible prorogue move:
"The senior official said another advantage of prorogation is that it would enable the Senate to reconstitute committees and remove Conservatives from key roles as chairs or deputy chairs. Senator Peter Harder, who is Mr. Trudeau’s leader in the Red Chamber, has made the case to the Prime Minister’s Office that a new Parliament would allow him to stack committees with independents, who are now the majority and more favourable to Liberal legislation.
The main argument against prorogation is that all government bills die on the order paper. A rule change in 1994 allows bills to be reinstated at the start of a new session at the same stage as before with the adoption of a notice of motion. However, the official said the government is concerned the Conservatives will try to thwart the reintroduction, although the Liberals – with their majority – would eventually prevail"
We here in Canada will know soon enough if Trudeau's going to prorogue or not.
What is clear today is that they going to pass through the gun legislation, with the help of their strategy of tension operation- because it fits their agenda to the T.
It's the cat's meow.
It's everything they needed to make ordinary Canadians into criminals while allowing real criminals to continue on with their crimes and criminal ways-
It's like big brother on speed here in Canada- wish more people would realize that?
