Dying on the NDP's altar of political correctness

When 58-year-old James Duane was run down and killed by a car thief he became the latest blood sacrifice to the NDP's gods of Political Correctness.

Do you think that's too extreme? Then keep reading.

This week the Winnipeg Free Press broke the taboo on the governing principle of the NDP's social policy. They spoke the unspeakable: that native-run Child and Family services put children at risk because their chief policy is politically correct family reunification and NOT the safety of their wards.

That overarching philosophy has meant that children seized from their parents are put in the care of often unqualified staff and into the homes of often unqualified fostering relatives. And the NDP has turned a blind eye.

The Free Press and other mainstream media outlets in the city are still refusing to report that a similar race-based philosophy rules the NDP's auto theft policy.

Everyone knows by now that the vast majority of car thefts are done by about 150 chronic repeat thieves. But it's apparent that the NDP refuses to do anything about the thieves other than hire more and more police officers to babysit them.

What nobody wants to say is that the NDP won't touch the repeat car thieves because most of them are aboriginal, and the NDP recoils at being seen as incarcerating aboriginals.

They have made a calculated decision that they can weather the political fallout of people being killed and injured by these car thieves, easier than angering a key political constituency.

In 2000, when six people were killed by car thieves, the NDP could legitimately say "We're new in office. Give us a chance."
In 2004, when two people were killed by car thieves, the NDP could legitimately say "We're passing new laws. Give them a chance."
But by 2007, with car theft raging and the repeat car thieves undeterred, the NDP were flat out of excuses. Except one.

"Don't blame us. Blame Ottawa. It's their fault."


The Manitoba NDP didn't make revamping the Youth Justice Act a priority when the Liberals were in power.

And they certainly didn't say a single bad word about their colleagues in Ottawa when NDP Justice Critic Joe Comartin boasted that the NDP and Liberals joined forces to keep the idea of deterrence out of the Act, thereby limiting the sentencing options of judges.


General deterrence is "of no value" and was "consciously" excised from the new youth justice act, Comartin told the Toronto Star last year.

The Manitoba NDP are now engaged in a massive charade of pretending that all would be well if only the federal law was changed.

And the mainstream press is letting them get them get away with it -- by not reporting that the NDP in Manitoba has all the power it needs to take the repeat car thieves off the streets under exclusively provincial legislation.

The Child and Family Services Act empowers the government to act in loco parentis if a child is at risk (
http://blackrod.blogspot.com/2007/03/tackling-car-thieves-doable-solution.html ) and every accident involving a stolen car involves a (usually underage) car thief.

Instead, the press refuses to hold the NDP accountable for their failure.

When a jogger was almost killed on Wellington Crescent, the press engaged in an orgy of handwringing and lamentations of "How could this happen?"

When Rachelle Leost was killed on Inkster Boulevard, the press engaged in an orgy of handwringing and lamentations of "How could this happen?"

When James Duane was killed on McGregor Street, everyone knew the script by heart. Handwringing followed by lamentations.

Not one reporter confronted Manitoba Justice Minister Dave Chomiak over the government's feeble attempt at deflecting attention to Ottawa. Or over his own failure as a cabinet minister.

For "Six Months" Chomiak is the epitomy of failure in the NDP government.

As Health Minister he undertook to eliminate hallway medicine in six months. How did that work out?

Citizens soon learned that, under the NDP, hallway medicine was cadillac treatment. On Chomiak's watch we saw people dying on waiting lists and in hospital emergency wards.

Now they don't even make it to the ERs. They're dying in the streets.

And Chomiak's response? "Not my fault."

Former Justice Minister Gord Macintosh must have bequeathed his freqent flyer card to Chomiak, because Dave "Dr. Death" Chomiak plans another trip to Ottawa in the fall, his second of the year, to lobby for tougher laws against car thieves.

Macintosh went to Ottawa six, or eight, or ten times during his stint as Justice Minister to lobby for tougher laws. How did that work out?


Chomiak claims he wants the law changed to make auto theft an offence of its own.

When Conservative MP Andrew Scheer, MP for Regina-Qu'Appelle presented Bill C-343, a private members bill on auto theft, earlier this year to do just that as part of a package to toughen sentences for repeat offenders, Chomiak didn't rush to support it. We searched high and low for the news release from Chomiak endorsing the bill, but we still can't find it.

And Chomiak didn't utter a peep as NDP Justice Critic Joe Comartin dismissed Bill C-343 and declared auto theft was primarily committed by organized crime gangs which the bill didn't address.

We searched high and low for Chomiak's angry letter to Comartin setting him straight about the causes of auto theft in Manitoba, but we can't find that either.


The Manitoba press should be demanding Chomiak's resignation today, tomorrow, the day after, and every day until he's replaced by someone who is willing to put public safety ahead of political correctness.

Remember that when your father, your mother or your child is the next to be sacrificed on the NDP's pc altar.

The unreported bombshell conspiracy evidence in the Trudeau/SNC-Lavelin scandal

Wow. No, double-wow. A game-changing bombshell lies buried in the supplementary evidence provided to the House of Commons Judiciary Committee by former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. It has gone virtually unreported since she submitted the material almost a week ago. As far as we can find, only one journalist-- Andrew Coyne, columnist for the National Post--- has even mentioned it and even then he badly missed what it meant, burying it in paragraph 10 of a 14 paragraph story. The gist of the greatest political scandal in modern Canadian history is well-known by now. It's bigger than Adscam, the revelation 15 years ago that prominent members of the Liberal Party of Canada and the party itself funneled tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks into their own pockets from federal spending in Quebec sponsoring ads promoting Canadian unity. That was just venal politicians and a crooked political party helping themselves to public money. The Trudeau-Snc-Lavalin scandal is

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. There, we said it.

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. Oh, you won't find anyone official to say it. Yet . Like relatives trying to appear cheery and optimistic around a loved one that's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the people in power are in the first stage of grief -- denial. The prognosis for Hydro was delivered three weeks ago at hearings before the Public Utilities Board where the utility was seeking punishingly higher rates for customers in Manitoba. It took us this long to read through the hundred-plus pages of transcript, to decipher the coded language of the witnesses, to interpret what they were getting at, and, finally, to understand the terrible conclusion.  We couldn't believe it, just as, we're sure, you can't--- so we did it all again, to get a second opinion, so to speak.  Hydro conceded to the PUB that it undertook a massive expansion program--- involving three (it was once four) new dams and two new major powerlines (one in the United States)---whi

Crips and Bloodz true cultural anchors of Winnipeg's aboriginal gangs

(Bebo tribute page to Aaron Nabess on the right, his handgun-toting friend on the left) At least six murder victims in Winnipeg in the past year are linked to a network of thuglife, gangster rap-styled, mainly aboriginal street gangs calling themselves Crips and Bloods after the major black gangs of L.A. The Black Rod has been monitoring these gangs for several months ever since discovering memorial tributes to victim Josh Prince on numerous pages on Bebo.com, a social networking website like Myspace and Facebook. Josh Prince , a student of Kildonan East Collegiate, was stabbed to death the night of May 26 allegedly while breaking up a fight. His family said at the time he had once been associated with an unidentified gang, but had since broken away. But the devotion to Prince on sites like Watt Street Bloodz and Kingk Notorious Bloodz (King-K-BLOODZ4Life) shows that at the time of his death he was still accepted as one of their own. Our searches of Bebo have turned up another f

Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP's Christian-bashing, cop-smearing, other star candidate

As the vultures of the press circle over the wounded Liberal Party of Manitoba, one NDP star candidate must be laughing up her sleeve at how her extremist past has escaped the scrutiny of reporters and pundits. Parachuted into a safe NDP seat in Winnipeg's North End, she nonetheless feared a bruising campaign against a well-heeled Liberal opponent.  Ha ha.  Instead, the sleepy newspeeps have turned a blind eye to her years of vitriolic attacks on Christianity, white people, and police. * She's spent years  bashing Christianity  as the root cause of all the problems of native people in Canada. * She's called for  a boycott of white businesses . * And with her  Marxist research partner, she's  smeared city police as intransigent racists . Step up Nahanni Fontaine, running for election in St. John's riding as successor to the retiring Gord Macintosh. While her male counterpart in the NDP's galaxy of stars, Wab Kinew, has responded to the controversy over

Exposing the CBC/WFP double-team smear of a hero cop

Published since 2006 on territory ceded, released, surrendered and yielded up in 1871 to Her Majesty the Queen and successors forever. Exposing the CBC/FP double-team smear of a hero cop Some of the shoddiest journalism in recent times appeared this long August weekend when the CBC and Winnipeg Free Press doubled teamed on a blatant smear of a veteran city police officer. In the latest example of narrative journalism these media outlets spun stories with total disregard for facts that contradicted the central message of the reports which, simplified, is: police are bad and the system is covering up. Let's start with the story on the taxpayer funded CBC by Sarah Petz that can be summed up in the lead. "A February incident where an off-duty Winnipeg officer allegedly knocked a suspect unconscious wasn't reported to the province's police watchdog, and one criminologist says it shows how flawed oversight of law enforcement can be." There you have it. A policeman, not

Winnipeg needs a new police chief - ASAP

When did the magic die? A week ago the Winnipeg police department delivered the bad news---crime in the city is out of control. The picture painted by the numbers (for 2018) was appalling. Robberies up ten percent in  a single year.  (And that was the good news.) Property crimes were up almost 20 percent.  Total crime was 33 percent higher than the five year average. The measure of violent crime in Winnipeg had soared to a rating of 161.  Only four years earlier it stood at 116. That's a 38 percent deterioration in safety. How did it happen? How, when in 2015 the police and Winnipeg's police board announced they had discovered the magic solution to crime? "Smart Policing" they called it.    A team of crime analysts would pore through data to spot crime hot-spots and as soon as they identified a trend (car thefts, muggings, liquor store robberies) they could call in police resources to descend on the problem and nip it. The police
