D-Day was on June 6, 1944. The greatest invasion in history, when the Allies landed in Normandy, the coast of France, to drive Hitler’s army’s out, and to begin the liberation of Europe from the west, as the Soviet Red Army was doing from the east.
Donald Trump was in Normandy representing America, and Justin Trudeau was there, biting his tongue no doubt, representing Canada. All that toxic masculinity, all that male privilege, all those guns — he managed to keep his mouth shut for the most part, which is the best we can hope for.
(Maybe while he’s there, learning about the Nazis, he’ll reconsider calling Canada a country of genociders...)
Homeless veteran living in her van draws attention to national crisis
"During a week when world leaders gather on the shores of France to recognize the sacrifice of D-day, many veterans here at home are undertaking a desperate struggle.
They are former soldiers with no place to live. It’s an urgent national problem.
Diane Claveau is 56 years old, educated and military trained. She is also homeless, living in her van in the parking lot of a big box store; on the list for subsidized housing and on the hunt for a job.”
According to recent statistics, Claveau is one of an estimated 3000 to 5000 veterans across Canada who are homeless. It's a crisis and many organizations say it's a national disgrace.
“I would say this is one of big shames of Canada,” says Suzanne Le, the Executive Director of Multifaith Housing Initiative, “We have failed these people.”
As Trudeau would say, she’s asking for more than we can give.
If she were smart, she’d go to the U.S. come across the border illegally, like close to 100,000 fake refugees have done, file a bogus human rights complaint, and get free housing, free everything.
Here in Toronto, the government has literally rented out entire hotels, like the Radisson Toronto East, just giving free hotel rooms — plus of course housekeeping services, because why not — to any fake foreign scammers.
What would our own Canadian war dead — the 42,000 of them — what would they say about us?
What would they say about us tearing down statues of Sir. John A Macdonald?
What would they say about, just this week, the government giddy to censor, Nazi-style, any wrong-think on the Internet?
What would they say about our disgraceful treatment of veterans, but our prime minister’s love affair with convicted terrorists, like Omar Khadr, seen here receiving a hero’s welcome on Trudeau’s CBC state broadcaster?
But it’s not just Trudeau. It’s the media. It’s the schools. It’s the culture.
I bet that literally most Canadians under the age of 40 have no idea about D-Day, or even World War Two. Don’t laugh — we asked a dozen Canadians who our first prime minister was, and they had no idea.
I just don’t believe the folks who, once a year, pretend they care about our troops, or today, those who pretend they care about our liberties. They just don’t.
Donald Trump is an exception, the rest of the so-called leaders in Normandy today — they really couldn’t care less.
NEXT: Yesterday, the British Foreign Office released a video — more scaremongering about climate change, calling it the biggest threat facing the 21st century.
Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore replied, on Twitter: "BS."
Tonight he joins me to debunk the many claims made in this video.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
