Canada can look to international law to seek justice for the victims of UIA Flight 752. But there will be plenty of obstacles @justin_ling

Here's @MackLamoureux report from the Virginia rally, where a bunch of cosplayers with very real guns managed to not shoot themselves or anyone else.

I wrote a bit about Consortium News in 2018. It, basically, exists in a constellation of websites (some of them headquartered in Russia) which spread Russian propaganda on Syria, the U.S., etc.

Global News' reporting was based on an internal CSE report detailing Consortium News' efforts to peddle a Russian narrative attacking then-Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, who was at that time championing the Magnitsky Act.

Consortium News, which has had an involved role in peddling Russian propaganda, is suing Global News and the Communication Security Establishment for calling out their role in peddling Russian propaganda.

Ah, no, sorry, I subscribe to 'Giant Boats'

If Jean Charest ends up running anyway, I also demand full credit. I'm not saying he will run. I'm saying if he does, I predicted it.

Jean Charest ne sera pas candidat à la direction du Parti conservateur, a-t-il confirmé à Radio-Canada http://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1483923/jean-charest-pas-candidat-direction-parti-conservateur …

I'd like to report that Jean Charest is no longer running for the Conservative Party of Canada.

As I wrote in the Post last week: Charest's record is marred by his bonkers decision to functionally suspend the right of public assembly and the appearance of deep corruption inside his own party.

Jean Charest is running, raising the eternal question: fucking *WHY*?!

One of the reasons meth, in particular, has been such a problem (especially in the Canadian Prairies and in parts of the U.S.) is because organized crime have pushed more potent meth to try and compete with fentanyl. This is literally a market problem.

You want to reduce the negative consequences of drug use on a city? Try: Not arresting users or pushing them into rehab centres that don't work Actually providing them housing and support Addressing the supply issues.

Yes, safe consumption sites coalesce users into a smaller geographic area (that's part of the point) and that *can* (maybe) increase some types of crime or nuisance. But that's a trade off of saving lives.

Does the ever-witty Rick Bell think the safe-consumption site created people with mental health issues, compounded by drugs? That they weren't having episodes before the site came around?

No. Pushing vulnerable users — who have nowhere to go, who may be housing insecure, or who worry about the content of their drug supply — into the shadows is only going to lead to more negative societal outcomes. We know this.

This always comes back to a basic question: What do you think happens if the consumption site doesn't exist? Do people put down the drugs and go "ah, shucks, I guess I'll quit and go into investment banking"?

Great, another unhinged and dehumanizing article attacking safe consumption sites — proven to save lives.
