Gerald butts has popped up in ottawa again
I was talking with my father in law on the weekend (very left leaning) and we both agreed that a vote of non-confidence would be political suicide in the current climate. However, we both agreed that JT could try to spin an election as him being "accountable" to Canadians giving him some sort of perceived moral high ground.

I don't say this lightly. This is probably the dumbest use of government money I've ever seen.

Ottawa is putting up $93 million over the next four years for the Black Entrepreneurship Program, while banks are contributing up to $128 million for loans between $25,000 and $250,000 for Black business owners. The federal cash will including $33 million towards the loans, $6.5 million to collect data on the barriers preventing Black Canadians from succeeding in business, and $53 million for Black business organizations to provide mentorship, financial planning and business training.

there are literally less black people in canada than indians ,asian and east indians


Total population by Aboriginal identity and Registered or Treaty Indian status, Canada, 2016. In 2016, there were 1,673,780 Aboriginal people in Canada, making up 4.9% of the population. The majority of the Aboriginal population reported a single Aboriginal identity – either First Nations, Métis or Inuk (Inuit).



As of 2016, the Indo-Canadian population numbers 1.37 million.

A total of 1,567,400 individuals identified themselves as South Asian, the largest group. They accounted for one-quarter (25.0%) of the total visible minority populationand 4.8% of Canada's total population. South Asians were also the largest visible minority group recorded in the 2006 Census.

That's most of my issue with it.

Granted, imprting tragedy worked for gun control so why not try it with their other social initiatives?
