Transgender activist Yaniv wanted by police in BC

RCMP in Langley BC have charged Yaniv with two counts of mischief and uttering threats after an incident on October 20




Trans-gender activist and serial human rights complainer Jessica Yaniv is now a wanted woman.

RCMP in Langley BC have charged Yaniv with two counts of mischief and uttering threats after an incident on October 20 against Chris Elston, who was videotaping her with his cellphone.

The incident in question can be viewed here. It does contain strong language.

Yaniv has been involved in several lengthy human rights commission hearings, including one that wrapped up in October, 2019, when the BC commission dismissed Yaniv’s claim against several beauticians who refused to wax her scrotum.

The tribunal ruled her only motive was to target small businesses for personal financial gain. 

In October this year, she filed yet another human rights complaint – this time against a girls and women’s beauty pageant for not allowing her to participate.

Yaniv (also known as Jonathan Yaniv and as Jessica Simpson) said she was discriminated against by  Canada Galaxy Pageants when they refused to let her enter the “28 Years and Older” division.

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which is representing the Ontario pageant, said Yaniv has male genitals and was born a biological male, but now self-identifies as female. 

“In May 2019, Yaniv applied to be a contestant in the Pageant, and was tentatively accepted. Yaniv did not mention being transgender prior to applying,” said the Justice Centre in a Monday news release.

“At the time, Canada Galaxy Pageants had a formal policy of accepting genetic females as contestants, but would still accept transgender females who had fully transitioned and no longer had male genitals. This policy was noted in all paperwork and on the website. The pageant’s policy has since been revised to include ‘genetic females and fully transitioned.’”

All of the contestants, including girls as young as six, change their clothing and undress in common areas. Contestants from teens and up also compete in a swimwear category.

“Once reminded of the pageant’s policy, Yaniv filed a human rights complaint against Canada Galaxy Pageants, alleging discrimination based on gender identity, gender expression and sex, in violation of the Ontario Human Rights Code,” said the centre.

“Yaniv is seeking damages in the amount of $10,000 for “injury to dignity and feelings,” and requests that the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario rule that an organization cannot refuse a service to someone just because that person has male genitalia.”

    If I self Identify as Cleopatra will you build me a palace in Egypt?


    Then stop calling this revolting person a woman. He’s a man. A man that wanted to force women to wax his balls. He deserves ZERO respect of you using his ‘preferred pronouns’.

    Also, stop blaming WOMEN for the crimes of MEN, it’s slanderous and inciting violence against women.

    How about journalists/writers stop calling this abomination a transgender activist. Yaniv is a pedophile/scammer in women’s clothing. His mother (the enabler) uses the pronoun “he” when speaking of him. He should have been locked up years ago but thanks to BC’s warped sensibilities around trans folk, he has managed to con his way back to the hole where he lives and continue harassing and scamming. I would wholeheartedly support a movement for BC to separate from the rest of Canada bc the absolute dregs of society flock there and the woke ass government enables and encourages anti social, criminal and immoral behavior.

    Why don’t we treat all mental problems and psychological conditions with surgery?

      In this case, a lobotomy seems appropriate.

    Hey, Dave Naylor, “hers” don’t have scrotums. Maybe call mummy and daddy and ask them to give you “the talk”. Yaniv is a leech on society, nothing more. His only benefit to the world is that he is proof that anything other than “make” and “female” is mental, not physical. Yaniv can prove he is a male. Nobody can prove they are “two-spirited” or “questioning”.

    This is the poster guy for the BC Teachers’ Union . . . who are forcing this Un-scientific garbage down the throats of elementary school children. This used to be called “Grooming” . . . but today it is known as “Woke” ! ! !
    All began 7 years ago in LA when a small group of Pseudo-science Psychologists decided that a Mental Condition was now to be considered “Normal”.
    Using that logic, if you sit in a Parking Spot at IKEA for long enough . . . you can claim you are a CAR!

O’Toole adds voice to petition to award former Canadian soldier prestigious honour

“(Jess Larochelle) is worthy of consideration for Victorian class,” said O’Toole.




Conservative leader Erin O’Toole has thrown his support behind a veterans association’s attempts to garner the Victoria Cross (VC) for a Canadian who heroically fought in Afghanistan.

“(Jess Larochelle) is worthy of consideration for Victorian class,” said O’Toole, himself a former commissioned officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force.

“I’m very proud of the men and women who serve in our Canadian Armed Forces and those (who) served in that mission with distinction and unparalleled courage,” he said Sept. 17.

The Afghanistan Veterans Association of Canada has petitioned the Governor-General of Canada to award the Victoria Cross to former Pvt. Larochelle, Nipissing, Ont. man who is in poor health.

“I was in the same company with Jess,” said Bruce Moncur of Thompson, Man., founder of the Veterans Association.

“The guy had a broken back and single-handedly fought off 40 Taliban.”

No Canadian has won the most prestigious award of the British honours system in 77 years, but Moncur said it’s time to change that.

“The clock is ticking. His family does not want this to be a posthumous award,” he said.

Larochelle in 2007 was awarded the Star of Military Valour for bravery in combat at Pashmul, Afghanistan.

A year earlier, Larochelle fought off Taliban gunmen at a machine gun post despite injuries from heavy fire that killed two members of his unit and wounded four others.

“Private Larochelle went above and beyond the call of duty, exhibited unwavering determination and fulfills the criteria of the Canadian Victoria Cross: bravery in the face of the enemy, turning the course of a battle, determination despite injury, and saving the lives of his section despite his own sacrifices,” said the petition.

O’Toole said it’s a sad circumstance for all who served overseas.

“The situation in Afghanistan that’s tumbling into crisis is hard for military families who left a piece themselves in that country,” he said.

Yet another reason why we should not have had an election; we should have made sure that anyone that’s at risk in Afghanistan … (as prime minister) I will never leave someone behind like Mr. Trudeau has.”

In 1993 Canada created its own VC and withdrew from the British VC., but Canada has yet to award a Canadian VC.

O’Toole pleads with conservatives not to vote PPC

O’Toole said he feared a right-wing vote split could lead to four more years of Justin Trudeau.




Erin O’Toole is making a last-minute appeal to conservative voters to stick with him.

At a campaign stop in London on Friday afternoon, O’Toole urged those on the right to not mark their X for the People’s Party of Canada, which has seen a surge in the polls lately.

O’Toole said he feared a right-wing vote split could lead to four more years of Justin Trudeau.

“There are actually millions of Canadians who are very frustrated with Mr. Trudeau. If they allow that frustration to do anything other than vote Conservative, they’re voting for Mr. Trudeau,” O’Toole said.

“There are five parties and there are two choices. More of the same with Mr. Trudeau or real change and ethical government with Canada’s Conservatives.”

While not mentioning the PPC by name, O’Toole said Trudeau would be happy with the vote split.

“If Justin Trudeau is rewarded for calling a $600 million election in the middle of a pandemic, everything you’ve come to dislike about Mr. Trudeau — the lectures, the division in this country, the hypocrisy, the rising prices — they will all only get worse,” he said.

“There is a lot a stake.”

When asked why he would use the name of the PPC, O’Toole responded: “I’m not going to advertise them.”

Polls continue to show good news for the People’s Party of Canada.

EKOS Politics daily tracking showed last week the party surging to a record 11.2% of decided and leaning voters, putting it within striking distance of the traditionally third-place NDP, which sits at 15.7%.

The Conservatives maintain a slight edge over the Liberals at 33.6% and 30.7% respectively.

Most polling firms have tracked the PPC rising from near obscurity at the beginning of the election campaign, to consistently higher numbers that could see the party make a real impact on the September 20 vote.

Broken down by region, the numbers are even more shocking.

In Alberta, the PPC has vaulted over the Liberals and NDP into a clear third place at 19%. While still well behind the Tories at 52%, the level of support could yield seats for the PPC if concentrated in specific constituencies.

The PPC’s second-best showing is in Quebec, where it sat in fourth place at 13%. In that province, the Liberals lead at 31%, followed by the Conservatives at 21%, and the BQ at 18%. The NDP ranked below with PPC in fifth place at 10%.

In Ontario, the PPC is breathing down the neck of the NDP for third place, just 2% behind them at 11%, however well back of the Liberals at 39% and the Tories at 33%.

BC tells Alberta no can do, about ICU beds for COVID patients

“We will not be able to assist with taking patients at this time.” —B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix




It was a big fat “no” from B.C. legislators when asked to take hospital patients from Alberta.

The westernmost province told its eastern neighbour it cannot take ICU patients because of its own health-care demands.

“Given the current demands on B.C.’s health-care system, we will not be able to assist with taking patients at this time,” said B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix in a statement Thursday after a meeting of B.C. and Alberta health officials.

In the short statement, Dix also said: “We have told Alberta that if there are things we can do to support them, we will. And if we can take patients on in the future, we will.

Dix, noting “we are in a global pandemic,” and added: “We salute Alberta’s health-care workers, and all health-care workers who are working tirelessly to care for patients and protect people and communities in the face of great challenge.”

Alberta’s health system is teetering on collapse with 269 patients in an intensive-care system set up for 173.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney appealed for help from the other provinces, by taking some ICU patients or sending front-line health workers to Alberta.

Ontario offered to accept patient transfers if needed, said Dr. Verna Yiu, head of Alberta Health Services (AHS), and Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey offered to aid in a tweet.

Newfoundland and Labrador also offered help to Alberta.

B.C. reported 706 new cases of COVID on Thursday, as well as four deaths linked to the illness, bringing the death toll to 1,877.

B.C. Health said there are currently 5,844 active infections across the province with 291 people in hospital, including 134 in intensive care.

In Alberta— which is facing a devastating fourth wave with the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country—large numbers of non-urgent surgeries were cancelled because hospital staff are reassigned to COVID-19 care.

BC told Alberta that if there are things it can do to support the beleaguered province in the future, it will attempt to do so.
