Alleged wife-beater Wab Kinew calls for an end to serial tickling.

Has the world gone crazy?

A political party that elected an accused wife beater as its leader is roiled by anonymous accusations that a member who is no longer in the Legislature tickled women years ago?

He not only tickled women, but threatened to tickle others.  And even asked one if she liked to be tickled.  What a beast!

One ex-MLA--- one of the fearless, strong, independent NDP women---has come forward to say that she, whoever she is, was tickled, too.  And not once. Twice. TWICE, we say.  Within four, or maybe eight, or possibly even 17 years.  And nobody stopped this animal?

An army of aggrieved females has declared they will put an end to tickling in politics.  Never again, they say.

But where were they when a woman came forward last year to say that her former common-law husband, Wab Kinew, dragged her along the ground by her hair to show her how a real man treats his woman. 

Another time, she said, Kinew threw her across the room of their home so viciously that she suffered rug burns on her legs when she landed. Still not finished that night, he allegedly hauled her onto the balcony where, she said, she feared she was going to be thrown off to the concrete below.

Where were they? We'll tell you. They were voting to make Wab Kinew their leader.

Leader Wab now wants to be in the forefront of the battle against tickling in politics.  He demanded that his predecessor quit as MLA for St. Boniface for failing to stop the monster tickler when women complained about his behaviour. He declared he would set up a two-woman commission to hear stories about tickling and other such unacceptable behaviour.

As for the allegations against him?  Well...the bitch is lying. That's his message.

Except that the woman, who didn't hide behind anonymous posts on social media, went to the police with her story about her husband.  They charged Kinew with domestic assault. "Minister Tickles" Stan Struthers has never been charged with anything.

Kinew denies everything. And points to the fact that the charges against him--there were two---were stayed by the Crown.  That proves he didn't do it, says Kinew.

But his former common-law wife says she was fully prepared to go to court to testify to what Kinew did to her, and she had no idea why the Crown chose to stay the charges. That proves she stands behind her story.

The professional journalists in the city,  who can't stop chasing the Struthers tickle stories, at first ignored the allegations of assault involving Wab Kinew. 

Then they covered the woman's story, but have never demanded to hear Kinew's side of the story.

You would think that an alleged wife-beater running to lead the official Opposition would be a big story. Not in Manitoba.

"All too often, women are subjected to unacceptable behaviour. I stand with these women who've come forward..." said Bernadette Smith (NDP-Point Douglas) who issued a statement on behalf of the party.

Where was Bernadette Smith when a woman accused Wab Kinew of being a wife beater? Supporting Wab Kinew's candidacy for leader.  So much for standing with the women who have come forward.

Nahanni Fontaine, another NDP MLA, said at the time of the accusations against Kinew that "I absolutely have always taken the stand that women are telling the truth."  But---well---uh---she still backed Wab Kinew as leader of the NDP.

People change, she said, in defending the alleged wife-beater.

Unless, obviously, there's tickling involved.

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)---which it could not a…

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 so much more…

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 his woman-and-gay bas…

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 five gang-li…

Sex and Drugs in the Peg. Is that what PM Justin Trudeau is covering up?

The Parliamentary Press Gallery spent the weekend yukking it up with Justin Trudeau at the annual gallery dinner, demonstrating that relations between the Prime Minister and the press were back to normal, the master and his voice in sync again. Things had been a little strained a few weeks ago when Trudeau, determined to show that he was a tough guy and not to be trifled with in the House of Commons, delivered a hard elbow to a female MP's breast while manhandling an Opposition MP who wasn't moving fast enough to suit the PM.
The reporters and pundits had to do quite the soft shoe to excuse Trudeau's boorishness when video of the incident contradicted his initial explanation for how his elbow smashed into her chest.  Luckily, the controversy subsided quickly and the press gallery could go back to work--- adoring the Sun King.
And then, last week, damn it, up popped another matter that threatened to blemish the reign of Trudeau II. Its name---Hunter Tootoo.
Hunter Tootoo turned…

It's time to call the family to pay their last respects. Manitoba Hydro is done.

A perfect storm is hitting Manitoba Hydro. Insolvency is inevitable. 

Eight months ago we reported that Hydro was on its deathbed, based on the testimony of the utility's own witnesses at a hearing of the Manitoba Public Utilities Board.

Since then the patient's condition has deteriorated rapidly. It's time to call the family to pay their last respects. 

Last week the Bank of Canada announced that the years of low interest rates are officially over. The Bank raised the bank rate by one quarter of one percent. It was the third rate hike within a year.  It's just the start.

The Bank of Canada expects at least one and possibly two more rate hikes in 2018.  That will bring the bank rate to about half of where the Bank wants it to be.  You read that right---half.  The Bank of Canada wants the bank rate to steady out at 2.5 percent, the lower end of a range the Bank feels is right for a healthy econo…
