Next week marks the fifth anniversary of the Caledonia occupation, where native protestors walked onto a housing development, claimed the land and chased the workers off. The Ontario government responded by buying the land from the housing developers and using police to protect the thugs and protesters while ignoring crimes against the residents of Caledonia.
The feds’ role in all this? They’ve been offering hundreds of millions of dollars to settle this land claim, all of it rejected, so they will offer more money.
None of this passes the smell test for ordinary Canadians, but our betters in government, in the police forces and the “expert” class tell us not to worry about it.
And as Mark Shea has been predicting for years: a hundred years from now, all those pedophile Catholic priests will be immortalized in stage plays and movies a la The Crucible, not as villains, but as poor misunderstood persecuted sexual pioneers who were simply expressing their lurve/I-can’t-help-it-ness.
And these plays will be written by the same types of people who delight in bashing the Catholic Church today, i.e., “transgressive” “visionary” artistes…
The bill seeks to raise some existing mandatory minimums from 14 days to 90 days while others would go up to one year for people who sexually abuse children. Of course, the lawyers think any minimum sentence is wrong for their clients because it ties the hands of judges, and politicians, they say, shouldn’t do that.
Funny, I don’t hear them arguing against maximum sentences using the same arguments.
Of course, the criminal lawyers are not the only ones arguing against a bill that targets pedophiles and perverts. There’s the opposition parties, all three of them.
But what really shocked me was the Universite de Montreal professor, Dr. Hubert Van Gijseghem, who showed up to tell MPs pedophilia was a sexual orientation just like heterosexuality or homosexuality.
Leave it to the experts.
