Mckenna takes Hypocrite Air to lecture on air pollution

McKenna is no stranger to Air Miles, racking up 29,000 km on aircraft last year alone, including six flights between Toronto and Ottawa.

Political hot air out of Ottawa is reminding Canadians to reduce air pollution.

Blacklock’s Reporter says Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna flew across-country to make the remarks in Edmonton.

McKenna is no stranger to Air Miles, racking up 29,000 km on aircraft last year alone, including six flights between Toronto and Ottawa.

“We need to reduce air pollution,” said McKenna, citing a climate crisis.

“Consider that the transportation sector represents a quarter of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions.

“Climate change is real. It is accelerating, and it is on all of us to take advantage of the solutions that already exist.”

McKenna traveled to Edmonton to announce federal subsidies for Edmonton’s light rail transit system.

“Climate policy is actually tricky because it’s not just transit, it’s across all sectors, but it’s also being really diligent at looking at what are your emissions so you can actually tackle them,” said McKenna.

“Some of the leadership has been about just measuring emissions and then being very practical in figuring out what are the different ways you can reduce emissions while also doing good things.

“If you look at what’s happening across the country, you have fires that are burning, literally incinerating towns in a matter of hours. When you consider that in British Columbia seniors are dying because of the extreme heat.

“If you look at Europe, Europe has floods that they’ve never seen before, the equivalent of three months of rain over three days. Climate change is real,” McKenna said.

“There is nothing more important. We will get out of the COVID-19 pandemic, thank God, but then we will have the climate crisis, and we need to move forward together.”

McKenna said her news conference “could be my last event in Edmonton before I leave office.”

McKenna announced June 27 she would not seek re-election to a third term as MP for Ottawa Centre.

McKenna was publicly criticized in 2018 for traveling by car and chauffeur to a Rockland, Ont. photo op on public transit where she criticized opponents.

McKenna in 2019 also used her car and chauffeur for a 400-km round trip to Montréal to attend a McGill University seminar “on the challenges and opportunities of climate change.”

    So true Left Coast but you’re preaching to the choir. The average Canadian is too dumb to see what’s going on and even if they did, all the government has to do is toss out another bone and like a good puppy they jump to attention.

    Is McKenna still going to retire with Mark Carney pulling out of the running for better entitlements?

    Will Minister McKenna be going through the vaccinated or unvaccinated line at the airport, like the regular folk has to do or will she prance away on a government jet without a care in the world?

    Klimate Barby is friggin clueless . . . another one of Justin’s Gender & Diversity hires!

    Klimate Change is coming to Edmonton lol
    Sure is, 6 months from now it will be -40 . . . my prediction, top that Al Gore!

    Every 20 Weeks China increases their Emissions as they are building 200 more Coal Fired Generating Planets by an amount EQUAL to Canada’s ANNUAL Emissions.
    They wear masks 24/7 in Bejing because of the Air Quality . . . not necessary in Edmonton.

    Perhaps Barby has noticed, there is not much industry left in Edmonton or Canada for that matter. 100s of Oil Related Industries have already moved to Texas.

    The Reality is Canada is one of the Cleanest Countries on the friggin planet . . . and our measly amount of our CO2 emissions never leave the country as our forests & farms ingest all the CO2 they can get.

    Gorbull Warming is a Scam . . . and now we are finding that the intentionally released Wuhan Virus is a PlanDemic likely originating in the WHO Eugenics gathering of 2009.

    Kissinger quote from a speech to the WHO Council on Eugenics, February 25th 2009:
    “Once the herd accepts mandatory vaccinations, It’s GAME OVER. They will accept anything – Forcible blood or organ donation- “For the greater good”.
    We can genetically modify children and sterilize them- “For the greater good”. Control sheep minds and you control the herd.
    Vaccine makers stand to make billions. And many of you in this room are investors. It’s a BIG win/win. We thin out the herd, and the herd pays us for extermination services”
    Henry Kissinger~

    And the Canadians all said . . . . Baaaaaaa

Hundreds of Albertans protest in front of UCP MLA offices over COVID restrictions

So just a few hours after Kenney brought in the new restrictions on Wednesday, ready they were – and about a dozen MLA offices were picketed.

He knew they couldn’t stop the government from bringing in even more COVID-19 restrictions, but Jordon Kosik wanted to be ready to show his displeasure.

Operating two Facebook groups, Holding MLAs Accountable and Closed for Fall, Kosik had his 17,000 members ready to protest just hours after Premier Jason Kenney brought in a fourth COVID-19 lockdown, which this time includes vaccination passports.

“A couple of weeks ago, we knew something was happening,” Kosik said in a Thursday interview with the Western Standard.

“There was nothing we could do to stop it, but what we could do is get ready.”

So just a few hours after Kenney brought in the new restrictions on Wednesday, ready they were – and about a dozen MLA offices were picketed.

Some had a handful of people show up, while others had scores of people.

“This was on organic protest, people in their own ridings,” said Kosik.

And Kovik thinks this won’t be the end of restrictions, with more likely in a couple of weeks.

“To get ready for that we have to network, network, network,” Koik said.

Vancouver cops are on the hunt for an armed killer after a gangster was slain Wednesday during a daylight shooting in Vancouver’s core area.

Amandeep Manj, 35, a known member of the United Nations gang, was shot about 3:30 p.m while sitting inside his car in the parking lot of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel near Canada Place.

Soon after he bloodied body was discovered, paramedics raced to the lot, but Manj was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said they’re convinced the shooting was a targeted hit.

Several news sources said the homicide victim was well-known in Vancouver’s illicit drug trade.

Manj’s brother, Jodh Manj, also died a violent death three years ago when he was killed while leaving a Mexico City gym.

Vancouver Police Const. Tania Visintin told the Vancouver Sun Manj is the city’s 13th homicide of 2021.

She told the paper officers responded to level three of the parkade near Cordova and Burrard streets “after a man was found unresponsive by a witness.” 

Police have made no arrests in the case, and ask anyone who may have information about the shooting to contact Vancouver police.

COVID vaccines changing their names

The FDA approved new names in the US earlier this summer.

What’s in a name? Plenty, apparently, when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines in Canada.

Health Canada announced Thursday it will accept the change in new brand names of the three most common vaccines Pfizer, Moderna and Oxford-AstraZeneca.

The Moderna vaccine will go by SpikeVax and the AstraZeneca vaccine will be named Vaxzevria.

The Pfizer vaccine will now be called Comirnaty, which the company said represents a combination of the terms COVID-19, mRNA, community, and immunity.

CBC said the vaccines didn’t go by their brand name initially, but now that new and more long-term data has been submitted and approved they will go by their permanent name.

Canada is still expected to receive vials labelled Pfizer-BioNTech for the next several months.

The FDA approved new names in the US earlier this summer.
