WATCH: Faith Goldy Bashes Toronto Mayor in New Ad

She wants to put Canada first.

Published

on

A “Canada First” candidate for Toronto mayor let loose on her incumbent opponent in a new campaign ad.

“Crime has skyrocketed on [current Mayor John Tory’s] watch,” the ad says. “This year, Toronto’s murder rate topped New York City’s.”

Much of the crime in Toronto has stemmed from a surge in radical Islamic extremists who have invaded Canada under the guise of refugeeism.

In late July, Islamist gunman Faisal Hussein, killed two and wounded 13 in a mass shooting. ISIS claimed responsibility on their official news website, Amaq. Still, Canadian authorities denied that the shooting was terror-related.

Goldy’s ad shows Tory praising diversity as a “strength” of the city, which is a line often touted by the political left.

“I think our prosperity depends on the degree to which we can embrace diversity,” he said.

The ad also addresses infrastructure problems in the city.

“Our roads and bridges are crumbling , but what does John Tory care about?” the ad asks. “Opening more safe-injection sites, making sure criminal junkies get their needles for free in a neighborhood near you.”

Toronto has implemented “safe injection sites” ensuring that drug users can get their fix with clean needles, which is supposed to prevent the spread of disease.

“It’s time to stop the insanity,” the ad finishes.

Canadian Police Report Almost 2,200 Home Visits To Monitor Quarantine Compliance

Published

on

Canadian police officers reportedly have conducted almost 2,200 home visits to ensure travelers into the country are complying with quarantine rules.

In late March, the Canadian government announced the start of the Quarantine Act, which mandates that anyone entering the country, with the exception of essential workers like truck drivers and those in healthcare, must self-isolate for 14 days.

Failure to comply can incur a fine of up to $750,000 and/or six months in prison. However, so far there have been no arrests, and only one fine of $1,000.

Still, many may find unsettling the degree to which the Canadian police, in coordination with official border and health services, are enforcing a nanny state by paying home visits to incoming travelers deemed at risk of non-compliance. In addition, prime minister Justin Trudeau has hinted that even tougher measures could be coming, even once Canada begins easing cross-border travel.

Also in late March, the Trudeau government announced a halt to all immigration in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, current immigration applications would not be closed or denied due to failure to meet typical requirements.

Still, many pointed out that Canada’s response was actually stronger than the US’, which has continued to import thousands of H-1B workers even while under lockdown due to a global pandemic.

The border between the US and Canada has been closed since the end of March, and this was recently extended, likely into mid-June. Trudeau has stated that the closure and its extension were implemented with full cooperation from the US.

While travel into Canada has not stopped completely, it has fallen drastically since the implementation of restrictive policies. However, critics of the government question whether Trudeau reacted quickly enough, and argue that the policy going forward is too vague and requires more explanation and accountability.

As stated by Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus:

“It was the Trudeau government’s failure to close our borders that allowed the virus to spread in the first place. It is incumbent on the Trudeau government to explain how they plan to ensure that travelers who are coming back to Canada are not spreading COVID-19… Unfortunately, right now the Trudeau government is telling Canadians to ‘wait and see’ without explaining what metrics they are relying on to make decisions.”

While Canada is doing significantly better than the US in terms of the number of cases, one tragically sobering area in which it has exhibited clear failure is the fate of its elderly, particularly those in state and private long-term care institutions.

It is estimated that up to 86% of the Canadian death toll is from facilities such as long-term care, retirement, and corrections, with the first two making up the large majority. In one privately-run nursing home, as much as one third of residents have died from coronavirus.

While the situation is complex and there are few countries that do not seem to have significant problems with their approach, it is clear that something is wrong with Canada’s. Perhaps the government should focus more on taking care of its elderly than intrusively monitoring its citizens.
