Have your say on the Edmonton Football Team’s new name

The management of the Edmonton Football Team has decided to change the team’s name.

Have your say on the new name in my unofficial straw poll. I’ll publish results of the informal poll in my e-newsletter and forward them to the team.

Sport Central has community impact

Edmonton is a city renowned for its community spirit and volunteerism. Sport Central, located in my federal riding of Edmonton Griesbach, is a shining example of that — supplying thousands of underprivileged children with sporting goods. Click on the video to hear their story:

Do you think the Eskimos should change their name?

Last week I asked folks views on whether the Edmonton Eskimos should change their name.

The results are in from my informal straw poll.

Of the 1,606 people who voted, 916 (57%) supported changing the name, 674 (42%) supported keeping the name and 16 (1%) people didn’t know. 

Thanks to everyone who waded into the discussion and who filled out the survey.

Early on the poll was running about 2-1 against changing the name of the Eskimos but gradually the Yes side came up in numbers as word spread that there was an unofficial survey being conducted.

Regardless of the result, it shows me the Eskimos name is certainly a hot topic. 

Personally I believe the Eskimos have done an admirable job in the past of reaching out to Indigenous people in the North and there was certainly not a groundswell from those folks to change the name. In fact the research seemed to show the majority of the Inuit in the West were in favour of keeping the name. 

My friend and former MP for Nunavut, Leona Aglukkaq was opposed to the name change as were several Inuit people who responded to the poll. 

Since I asked the question it’s been reported that the teams management intends to change their name. Those reports have currently not been confirmed by the team. 

Whatever the outcome may be, I hope everyone continues to support our football team as we go for our 15th Grey Cup win this year! 

Straw poll comments

Here are some comments folks left while answering last week’s survey:

“If they don’t change the name I will no longer support the NFL.” — Elysha M.

“I’m Eskimo/Inuk originally from Nunavut. I have no issues with Eskimo.” — Rosemary K. 

“What’s in a name?” as the Bard said. If the team feels a change is justified they should do it — they will still be the best organization in the CFL. Run a contest to let Edmontonians pick something with a closer identification with the city.” — Paul S. 

Have your say

Was it wrong for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government to hire the WE Charity organization to distribute nearly one billion dollars of taxpayers’ money given that Trudeau and his family have close personal and/or financial ties to the charity?

I’ll publish the results of this informal poll in the next e-newsletter. 

The government should impose sanctions against Chinese officials

I’m proud to have added my name to this letter urging the government to impose Magnitsky sanctions against Chinese officials.

Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, Minister François-Philippe Champagne,

We, the signatories, call on the Government of Canada to invoke Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act (Sergei Magnitsky Law) S.C. 2017, c. 21 against individuals who are directly responsible for the human rights atrocities happening in Tibet, occupied East Turkestan (Xinjiang), and Hong Kong.

As a leader on the international human rights discussion, to invoke Magnitsky sanctions against these officials is a strong and symbolic action that is consistent with how Canada has applied this act in the past.

As suggested by our very own Minister of Foreign Affairs, François-Philippe Champagne:

“Sanctions are an important tool to hold perpetrators of gross human rights violations to account.”

Canada needs to take a strong stance against blatant human rights atrocities and coordinate a multilateral effort amongst countries with shared values to reclaim our leadership on the Global stage.

 

 

 

How the WE scandal rocked the Trudeau government

By BRIAN LILLEY
Sun Media

It’s a scandal like none I’ve seen that has rocked the Trudeau government and spawned at least five investigations into the government actions.

Even CNN has speculated that this could bring down the Trudeau Liberals.

I’m not sure about that but it is a story that keeps on revealing more.

What started out as an attempt to help young people financially by introducing the Canada Student Service Grant has morphed into something else. The allegation is that this contract was just too cozy, that Justin Trudeau and others in his government were simply too close to the people getting a $912 million sole-sourced contract.

Along with giving the government headaches, this saga has shaken one of the biggest charities in the country.

Should the Eskimos change their name?

The Edmonton Eskimos play at Commonwealth Stadium in my federal riding of Edmonton Griesbach. Do you believe the team should change its name? Have your say. We will publish results of the informal poll in next week’s e-newsletter and forward them to the management of the team.

 

Kerry comes out as top fiscal watchdog

Here are the latest stats on what MPs spent over one year to run their local office and the one in Ottawa, including wages. We Conservatives are all very prudent when it comes to taxpayers’ dollars but I’m pleased to announce I spent the least among the MPs in my caucus. My grand total for the year: $290,026.07.

Columnist lambasts Trudeau over his latest scandal 

By LORNE GUNTER
Sun Media

And here is the disconnect that causes most of Trudeau’s blunders.

I think he truly believes he does cooperate. Fully.

In his own sophomoric mind, he’s not conniving to suppress the truth (although by his actions that is exactly what he is doing). When he imagines himself (which in his narcissistic way must be several times a day), he sees himself, breastplate gleaming in the sun, as our most “transparent and accountable” prime minister, ever.

During Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion’s investigation into the prime minister’s involvement in last year’s SNC-Lavalin affair, Dion asked Trudeau to waive privilege for nine key witnesses. Trudeau refused.

The commissioner reminded the PM’s office and the Privy Council that he was prevented by the Ethics Act from divulging cabinet confidences in his public reports, even when privilege is waived. He just needed to talk to the nine for the sake of his report’s accuracy.

Trudeau still refused.

Still, Trudeau swore to Scheer this past Wednesday that he will cooperate fully with Dion’s current probe — because that is what he always does. I think he was being sincere. Delusional. But sincere.

When he says one day that the civil service alone arranged for WE to be given a sole-source contract to distribute nearly $1 billion in pandemic emergency grants to students who volunteer their time and then admits days later he pushed for and voted for the deal at cabinet, I’m convinced he hasn’t the intellectual perception to see those as contradictory.

One week he insists WE never paid any one in his family to speak at their events, the next we learn the charity and its affiliates paid assorted Trudeaus more than $300,000 over the years.

Still, to him, that’s not a lie. It’s simply an evolution of the narrative.

“Trudeau has no conscience. Where are his minions in cabinet…. are they not embarrassed by his actions….” — Howard W. 

“My questions are mainly: The Liberal government keeps stating how this is the only charity able to handle this. Maybe so, but who said this had to go to one charity? Surely there’s other organizations that could work with a fair share of the proposed funds. And secondly, how long are we going to let them get away with committing to major government decisions without any fair parliamentary oversights? Especially as a minority government. It should not have even gotten to this point in the first place.” — Ryan K.

“Come back mister Harper.” — Greg S.

Ethics commissioner launches investigation into Trudeau, again

 

Parliament’s ethics commissioner has launched an investigation into Justin Trudeau giving $912 million of taxpayers’ money to distribute to a charity to which he’s personally connected. 

The WE Charity, was sole sourced the contract that would give $5,000 for volunteer work done by students over the summer.  

Trudeau justified it as saying “only the WE organization had the capacity” to deliver the program. 

However, that claim has been rejected by experts.

Those experts have noted that there are many different organizations that would’ve been better placed to manage the program. 

Yet, despite better options available, Trudeau chose to grant nearly a billion dollars of public money to his friends to distribute. 

That’s nepotism at its worst. But it’s something we’ve come to expect from Trudeau. 

This isn’t the first time Trudeau has run afoul of ethics laws either.

He’s already been found guilty twice. Now he’s going for the hat-trick. 

His first offence was for his vacation at the private island of a registered lobbyist.

The second time was for his unlawful pressuring of the then-Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould to interfere in a criminal trial in the SNC-Lavalin affair. 

After our Conservative Official Opposition raised the alarm, WE Charity pulled out of the program. But Canadians deserve answers as to why they were granted it in the first place. 

Has your flight been canceled due to COVID-19? Here’s some helpful advice 

Grounded by COVID-19, many of the world’s airlines have begun to resemble dubious strangers hanging around school playgrounds with offers of confectionery. “Look what I have here,” they say. “Change your dates or cancel your flight altogether. It’s free! Come and see.”

Sitting squeezed into a metal tube for hours, breathing the same air as a crowd of strangers has probably never seemed less appealing, so the chance to delay or cancel a flight without penalty may be an unexpected blessing.

If the airline cancels the flight, a complete refund may be your legal right, but accept their offer and cancel yourself and the resulting terms and conditions – the requirement to rebook only on exactly the same route and within a limited time, for instance – may leave a bitter aftertaste.

“The best advice in this situation is not to cancel until the airline cancels,” says Dr Gábor Lukács, president of Canadian non-profit organisation Air Passenger Rights.
