If you donate to the Canadian Wildlife Federation you are being deceived, if you think the money is going to wildlife protection.
The money goes to the conservation of animals for sport hunting and and fishing, something I do not support. Nothing wrong here except that they are lying to people who care about animal welfare about where their donations are going.

U.S. border guards would get new powers to question, search and even detain Canadian citizens on Canadian soil under bill Bill C-23 proposed by the Liberal government and likely to pass in the current sitting of Parliament, and could erode the standing of Canadian permanent residents by threatening their automatic right to enter Canada.
The bill would enshrine in law a reciprocal agreement for customs and immigration pre-clearance signed by the governments of Stephen Harper and Barack Obama in 2015. Both houses of Congress passed the U.S. version of the bill in December.
“A Canadian going to the U.S. through a pre-clearance area [on Canadian soil] can say: ‘I don’t like the way [an interview is] going and I’ve chosen not to visit your country.’ And they can just turn around and walk out.
“Under the new proposed bill, they wouldn’t be able to walk out. They can be held and forced to answer questions, first to identify themselves, which is not so offensive, but secondly, to explain the reasons for leaving, and to explain their reasons for wanting to withdraw,” said Michael Greene, who is a former national chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s citizenship and immigration section.
Howard Greenberg, a Toronto immigration lawyer who has chaired the immigration law committees at the Canadian Bar Association and the International Bar Association, says the law raises the prospect of a Canadian being arrested simply for deciding he or she has had enough with a certain line of questioning.

Yesterday young women from across Canada were invited to a at symbolic sitting of parliament.
A teenage woman from Cardigan P.E.I. named Taya Nabuurs gave a speech that stood up to the Liberal’s scrapping of Electoral reform in Canada.
She like many young Canadians who will be eligible to vote in the next election, is fed up with the way this country is being run. Including the broken promises that impact everyone’s future.
Hopefully the Prime Minister got the message along with other Canadian politicians, but I doubt it.

With some large institutions around the world dumping their oil and gas stocks, in favor of green investments, we should take it as a sign that the world is changing.
That change is still too slow with most governments and businesses not willing to do the right thing right now, before it is too late.
Send a message by:
1. Divesting your investments to environmentally moral companies.
2. Taking public transportation, walking, biking and ride sharing when possible.
3. Picketing and protesting.
4. Eating a few meat free meals a week.
5. Calling your M.P. often and demanding change.
It is your future. Fight for it.
We are definitely living in a world of popularity contests based on looks, instead of a world with basic human decency. How can Justin Trudeau be so popular in the polls when he has proved himself to be a liar.
