I don’t buy organic, grass butter. I turn most of the butter I buy into clarified butter.

O’Toole’s Conservative Party fracturing on eve of a federal election
Quote:
If Erin O’Toole’s party suffers major losses in the next election, it won’t be a result of his leadership, but due to a party at odds with itself on central policy issues and divided along regional lines.

Canadian military preparing to evacuate Canadians from Afghanistan: sources
Canada’s military is preparing to pull Canadians out of its embassy in Afghanistan, Global News has learned.


Global News has learned a number of Afghans who worked for Canada and their families are currently inside a Canadian compound hoping to be rescued along with Canadian citizens.

Sources say there are young Afghan children among those taking shelter.

The Canadian government has not yet made a decision on their fate, but multiple sources told Global News they fear the families will be executed by the Taliban.

Heads up to anyone who has a PayPal account. PayPal introduced an inactivity fee in the U.K. last year and starting November will introduce a $20 annual inactivity fee in Canada. Here is the info:

Thanks!

I used them once or twice 7 years ago, but haven't since, so I deleted my account.

Again, thanks for the heads up.

Article dated August 3: https://www.macleans.ca/politics/ott...back-whatever/

“There was supposed to be a renewed Canada-U.S. relationship. The latest phone call between Biden and Trudeau suggests it is not going well.”

That’s been my impression too over the past few months. Biden appears neutral and disinterested, not friendly. I guess that’s an improvement though compared to the open malice towards Canada by Biden’s predecessor.

P.S…. Parts of the article are comical.

That's funny. Biden might be one of those people who aren't quite sure where Canada is but are too polite to say so. Loved the link to Canada's view on NORAD, hehehe.

Re evacuation from Afghanistan: https://www.dw.com/en/why-the-us-is-...ies/a-59014096

Quote:
Tens of thousands of US local staff have been evacuated, but so far only about 1,200 of these have actually arrived in America. The American government says Germany is just a transit country, but it is still unclear where the refugees currently waiting in Ramstein will be taken next.

The US government apparently aims to distribute as many local staff as possible to third countries around the world until their visa applications have been checked and approved. Late last week, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announced that 12 partner countries had already agreed to accept US local staff for this purpose: Albania, Canada, Costa Rica, Chile, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Mexico, Poland, Qatar, Rwanda, Ukraine, Uganda and Colombia.
So, these refugees, which are the responsibility of the US, will be housed in Canada, unvetted, until such time as they are vetted by the U.S.? What happens if the U.S. eventually denies entry, e.g. because an individual is deemed a security threat?

Quote:
Nowrasteh explains that there are several reasons why the US is initially taking refugees to other countries. Firstly, he says, Biden wants to create the impression that the burden is being shared internationally. But there are also practical considerations, he says, in that it is easier to deport rejected applicants to Afghanistan if they are not in the United States, where they have more rights than in Uganda, for example.
If the US rejects a refugee, I don’t think it will be easy at all to deport a refugee from Canada to Afghanistan. There’s a reason who no other first world country with the exception of Poland and Ukraine has agreed to be part of this program. Other countries are vetting refugees they themselves have chosen to be permanent residents.

As it is, Canada will probably be taking in 20,000 Afghan refugees, which, adjusted for population, would be equivalent to the U.S. taking in 175,000 Afghan refugees… they are not even planning to take in close to that. Yet they need Canada’s help?
