An unexpected scene outside #Vancouver Provincial Court today ahead of Ibrahim Ali's court appearance. Counter protests have drowned out a vigil planned by the #Syrian community. Many here are blaming @JustinTrudeau's acceptance of refugees for Marrisa Shen's murder. @GlobalBC
“Where’s Trudeau?” is now being chanted outside the #Vancouver Provincial Courthouse. Dozens of demonstrators tell us they’re here in support of Marrisa Shen’s Family. Demonstrators we’ve spoken to say Ibrahim Ali, who came to #Canada as a #Syrian refugee, wasn’t properly vetted.
Members of the #Syrian community living in #Vancouver have now set up a candlelight vigil outside the courthouse where Ibrahim Ali, accused in the murder of Marrisa Shen, is scheduled to appear today. Here’s what they had to tell us. @GlobalBC
So #Trudeau is spending #Canada into oblivion. Investment money is leaving or already left. #Canadamilitary lacks equipment and funding, with no long term strategy for procurement of military equipment. Rising interest rates (4th time since last summer) will eventually lead to-
hyper-inflation, absolutely devaluing investments such as Homes and Businesses of the average citizen. No Trade deal is even close to being signed. Massive new Taxes, waves of people entering the country illegally. A Prime minister who was found guilty of 4 felonies committed-
in the course of his duties as Prime Minister. Magically timed shootings coincide with gun control measures, at locations which would be celebrating holidays or having events where large numbers of people would be attending. #cdnpoli
Looking to #invest in the #Uranium space? 🌊🚢 For the average #investor the choices are limited in this tiny niche sector with only ~60 companies left standing, compared to over 500 during last #U3O8 Bull market. In this thread I will try to lay out some of your options... 🗂️

2.#UnitedStates is party to 14 international free trade agreements with 20 countries. President negotiates free trade agreements with foreign countries and submits to Congress legislation that would implement the agreements.
In cabinet meeting, @larry_kudlow says economy of #China "is just heading South...Right now, their economy looks terrible.”
Pool allowed to remain in cabinet meeting for extended time. @POTUS comments: “if you’d like, you can stay. If you’d like, you can leave. Freedom of the press.”
In cabinet meeting @POTUS asks @jeffsessions to look into opioids coming from #China and #Mexico, saying those countries were “sending their garbage and killing our people. .. It’s almost a form of warfare."
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM#RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia#Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM#RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.
#Saudi Arabia says #Canada's statement on the arrest of activists in the Kingdom is an unacceptable interference in its internal affairs, expels the Canadian ambassador and freezes all future trade. bbc.in/2vs6crl
"In her first public response to Saudi Arabia's actions, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Monday: 'Let me be very clear ... Canada will always stand up for human rights in Canada and around the world, and women's rights are human rights'." aljazeera.com/news/2018/08/s…
#Statement | The negative and surprising attitude of #Canada is an entirely false claim and utterly incorrect.
#Statement | We have been briefed by what the #Canadian foreign minister and the Canadian embassy to the #Kingdom released on what they named "civil society rights activists", and we affirm that this negative and surprising attitude is an incorrect claim.
#Statement | The Canadian position is an overt and blatant interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of #SaudiArabia and is in contravention of the most basic international norms and all the charters governing relations between States.
BREAKING: Saudi Arabia recalls its ambassador to Canada, considers Canadian ambassador persona non grata. Freezes all new trade and investment transactions with Canada: Saudi Press Agency.

Reposting this: Firstly, because the first photo is falsely attributed to the intentional slaugther of the bison in the US when, in fact, it was taken in what is now Regina, and lastly, to dispel a narrative that tribes were "over hunting"~ #101 stuff
This photo is Regina, Sask, 1878

The culling was done here, in what is now Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta. The last northern herd was wiped out in the 1860s. That sparked a conflict between the Cree and Blackfoot as the Cree had to push west to find the last herds. It was manifest genocide policy. #canada
When #US failed, it turned to threats. #Ecuador was the 1st to find itself in the cross hairs #Americans were blunt: If #Ecuador refused to drop the resolution-#US would unleash punishing trade measures & withdraw crucial military aid-The #Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced
The showdown over breast feeding was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from #USA.
