As the winter approaches and soon we will see, again, closed trails and native hunters roaming our conservation area based on a fraudulent “treaty rights” claim, here is a reminder of the work that was done on this topic by a group of researchers who oppose the annual hunt:
Did you notice? The summer of 2017 was chemtrails-free. Or, at least of the visible, daytime chemtrails. Early in the year, they disappeared from the blues skies but still were hunting us at night. Then, they were gone for good. What happened? This was an unusually cool summer that contradicted the idea of a global warming. Or, did it? Maybe it was just a temporary phenomenon resulting from the melting of ice caps and glaciers? Melting ice consumes energy, so it cools down the atmosphere, and the ocean with its currents that travel towards the equator. But this cooling effect will only last as long as we have a melting ice. And what then?
Anyway, here is an interesting account of the research done by a private citizen of California on this very topic:
The battle over abortion is extremely hypocritical.
On one hand, some states argue that an unborn child is not a “person” and therefore abortion is allowed. On the other hand, some of the same states had ratified the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which is considered the cornerstone of human rights, and which, in part, reads:
“Art. 6.5: Sentence of death shall not be imposed for crimes committed by persons below eighteen years of age and shall not be carried out on pregnant women.”
WOW!!! So is an unborn child a “person” whose life shall be protected? It looks like it, doesn’t it?

It’s time to stop the killing and to address the real problem – corruption. All the reasons for the annual deer hunt in Dundas Valley, all the stories to justify it, turned out to be either false or no longer valid and yet, the annual deer hunt continues.
It appears that Justin Trudeau has began his tenure as Canadian Prime Minister with more maturity and independence than some commentators, including myself, had predicted. Canada needs to restore its image around the world, Canada needs change, and this change, it seems, has just arrived. Hopefully permanently.

What can we ask for, locally, and what we expect of our Members of Parliament?
1. End the unprecedented price gouging and unregulated, monopolized marketplace. Food, housing, rent, insurance, and fuel are necessities that everybody has to buy and pay for. Since early 2000s, consumer protection does not exist. Monopolization has killed competition and, consequently, killed healthy market mechanisms. There is no valid reason for the food prices at METRO and other supermarkets to constantly rise. We are now paying 3-5 times more for food than we did in 2005. We are paying twice as much to rent an apartment than we did in 2001 and five times as much as we paid in the 1980s. The cost of car insurance has increased 5 times, since 1980s, as well. Houses and cars went up 300-500 percent. Despite salary increases, the market value of the money we make is rapidly decreasing. Consequently, our standard of living is on a constant and steady decline. Since this greed-driven trend is caused by government deregulation, we expect and demand that the government restores anti-trust as well as fair prices and services regulations and re-activates effective consumer protection a.s.a.p. – (Here)
