Is Craig Berube the right man to lead the Maple Leafs? | OverDrive - 05/17/2024
  • I hope they keep Woll. There's been some talk about his exercise and stretching routine maybe needing a look. Generally the type of injury he received at the end of game 4, can be prevented, from what I understand.

  • Veteran TSN sportscaster Darren Dutchyshen has died
  • Did everyone see the trio of TSN sportscasters that worked with him host a 15 minute memories of Darren yesterday? Actually brought me to tears on more than 1 occasion. He was loved even if he was politically incorrect at times. Appeared to have a large personality!

  • The Road to Digital Hell Is Paved With Good Intentions
  • We're slowly turning into an Authoritarian state. One can't critique or criticize without being censured. Why? They're afraid of the truth. Just look at the Ukrainian situation and the fact that we honoured a Nazi in parliament. People should read George Orwell - when I was a kid in grade 8, 1984 was required reading!

  • So, whatcha all think?

  • factoid: A piece of unverified or inaccurate information that is presented in the press as factual, often as part of a publicity effort, and that is then accepted as true because of frequent repetition.

    Actually, this is strictly an American definition. In original English, (Cambridge Dictionary) it means what I used it for: FACTOID | English meaning—Cambridge Dictionary I'm Canadian, and we use/follow the King's English! July 19, 2023 — FACTOID definition: 1. an interesting piece of information, 2. an interesting piece of information. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/factoid

  • So tell me, what is an authoritative source of factoids?

    I like Quora. Encyclopedia's on print stock used to be the gold standard due to professional fact-checkers, Wikipedia is NOT an alternative to that medium IMHO. BTW, I did not know of the definition of Factoid — Had thought it was slang for Fact.

  • That’s an even better world. I’d be happy with one where the above slogan would be acceptable.

    There isn't any nirvana.

  • A Toronto cop stole her dead sister’s credit card. The wait for justice was ‘maddening’
  • I’ll go back to my earlier point. Wikipedia is a fine place to start to get a summary of all the different aspects of defunding the police, you’re focused on a single source when there isn’t a single definition of the movement overall.

    Absolutely not for anything political related. It's a well-known fact that the deep state authors many of that type of article. It's great for official propaganda. BTW, I gave 2 sources indicating the same meaning, so I'm not focusing on a single entity, plus my experience talking to on the ground black activists in Toronto as to the meaning.

  • A single website source like that is even worse of a source than Wikipedia…

    Not really, it's as representative as anything else out there, which reinforces my point. There is no common meaning for 'Defund the Police'. You are just pissing in the wind.

  • https://defundthepolice.org/about/ They wish to disarm the police. https://defundthepolice.org/disarmament-demilitarization/ Some of it I agree with <ie> Predictive Policing and the use of Plantir software. But it's a lost cause I'm afraid.

  • When someone believes anecdotal evidence is representative of anything, you can be assured anything they say is of equal value.

    Yes. Like Wikipedia. The video I linked too isn't anecdotal. I live in the “Hood” and know what black youth think of the coppers and, especially when the movement to 'Defund the Police' started, what was the prevailing thought. The fact that someone wrote a Wikipedia article and stated their opinion of what it meant, is anecdotal in and of itself! 🤦‍♂️

    What do some of the most prominent and successful Indigenous artists, leaders and professors have in common? They aren’t Indigenous. There are hundreds of cases of Indigenous identity fraud that we know about, and likely thousands that we do not. So why do these so-called “Pretendians” do it? How do

    Pretendians

    In each episode of this riveting new podcast series, co-hosts Robert Jago (Kwantlen First Nation and Nooksack Indian Tribe) and Angel Ellis (Muscogee (Creek) Nation) reveal unbelievable stories of audacious fraudsters and investigate the complex phenomenon of Indigenous identity fraud. Coming soon. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information. Show Less

    I'd wager that many that say they're Métis, are pretenders, too. They all should be rooted out, so the real indigenous can engage and have funding.

  • Actually he's a high profile activist and representative of the movement in Toronto. Many of the young people I've personally interacted with, seem to think likewise. As I'm a local man, what people believe locally takes precedence over any Wikipedia article or what Solinvictus believes is correct.

  • A Toronto cop stole her dead sister’s credit card. The wait for justice was ‘maddening’
  • Wikipedia is hardly an authoritative source for political factoids. As I explained earlier, if ones does any sort of search you'll find that there isn't a definition that everyone agrees with.

  • A Toronto cop stole her dead sister’s credit card. The wait for justice was ‘maddening’
  • Yet another genius who never bothered to learn what “defund the police” actually intended before blathering on about how it’s ridiculous.

    I do. I just happen to disagree with it. There isn't one common denominator of Defund the Police, it means different things to some folk. For example, this local activist who wants to disarm them: https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/video/1.5594050 Which is asine!

    www.racket.news Blame Canada? Justin Trudeau Creates Blueprint for Dystopia in Horrific Speech Bill

    Life sentences for speech? Pre-crime detention? Ex post facto law? Anonymous accusers? It's all in Justin Trudeau's "Online Harms Bill," a true "threat to democracy"

    Blame Canada? Justin Trudeau Creates Blueprint for Dystopia in Horrific Speech Bill

    >I got in some hot water a while back for admitting I was relatively unconcerned with Republican villainy these days compared to other worries. This Canada Online Harms Act, whose details I missed earlier (apologies to Public and Yuri Bezmenov!), perfectly embodies the kind of thing that keeps me up at night now.

    >Whatever else Republicans have been up to, they haven’t been scheduling nuclear bomb runs over the whole concept of individual rights (although they’re trying to catch up with moves like the antisemitism bill). People will focus on the cartoon wokeness of Justin Trudeau’s bill, but that’s not what makes it scary — he’s trying to create a full-blown surveillance state, complete with a giant citizen army of paid snitches, with one stroke. Things not even imaginable a few years ago, like pre-emptive punishment for crimes not even committed or life sentences for what Canada’s former Chief Justice called “some words,” would be reality with this bill. Genuine political dissent would become logistically impossible, and virtual mob rule a certainty.

    >People misunderstood the content of stories like the Twitter Files to be solely about censorship. The real issue was the creation of huge extrademocratic bureaucracies that use digital levers to manipulate political life and whose growth is difficult-to-impossible to check. The way this bill casually dismisses things like the right to face your accuser or due process or protection from ex post facto law shows the utter contempt for democracy. These ideas have a lot of support in elite circles in America and I’m sorry, they’re operating on a completely different level of scary than something like the Trump movement even. Do people just not believe this stuff is happening, or do they think it’s okay? I don’t get it.
