A Quebec town’s street-name change is forcing a confrontation with history … The name of Sir John Colborne is set to be removed from a street and park in Chambly , a town near Montreal. The British military officer played a role in suppressing a French-Canadian rebellion 180 years ago. And while he’s regarded by historians as an able commander , he’s remembered much differently in Quebec. Chambly’s mayor has said having his name on signage is like having a street named for Hitler in Israel , according to a local media report. But the local historical society says this is an attempt to whitewash the past. Chambly , noted the society’s president , is named for a French army officer who was sent to Quebec to exterminate the Iroquois …

MORBNOTE ; First of all … It’s typical KbecWAH! style to overreact by comparing this to Adolph Hitler ! … And secondly , one tends to notice their convenient memory loss of Chambly’s participation in the ‘ extermination of the native Iroquois ‘ … Can’t handle it being named after a British soldier ( without whom , the French wouldn’t have a thing to do with this country ) but have no problem changing the name to one of their own who murdered the indigenous people of the area …

Canada has offered to resettle nearly 2,000 African asylum seekers from Israel. Federal officials say the deal is still on the table despite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s quick turn-about on a United Nations agreement to relocate thousands more to Western countries. The Canadian offer , which was pitched independently by Ottawa, came two months ago after Israel said it planned to deport African migrants to third-party countries in Africa. After that expulsion plan was met with legal obstacles , Israel worked out a deal with the UN to relocate 16,250 of about 39,000 people from Eritrea and Sudan. But hours after Netanyahu announced the deal , he said he was freezing it because of backlash from Israelis upset that 18,000 migrants would stay in the country temporarily. Meanwhile , Israel’s military has rejected fresh allegations that its army used excessive force against unarmed Palestinians during Gaza protests that left 18 dead. Netanyahu’s government has defended the army’s actions , with the defence minister saying ‘ our troops deserve a medal ‘. Here’s Doug Saunders’s take on the Gaza violence : ‘ By removing the promise of a Jerusalem capital from its scanty collection of bargaining chips , Washington no longer appears to have much leverage to bring Netanyahu to compromise with the Palestinians and his response on the weekend made that abundantly clear ‘…

MORBNOTE II ; Junior’s up to it again !!! … Grabs up all the wogs he can … Gives ’em ‘ vote Liberal ‘ gift packs and costs us all hundreds of thousands per more !!! … It’s also interesting to know the true political stance of the Americans all these years … The States have continuously used the  ‘ carrot ‘ of a ‘ future ‘ Israel ownership of Gaza to dangle in front of them … Old Doug pretty much sums that up noting that Trump has given it to them …

Pride Toronto doesn’t want Toronto police marching in this year’s paradePride issued a statement calling on the Toronto police to withdraw its application to march over the force’s handling of missing-persons cases from the city’s Gay Village, many of which have since been linked to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur. Pride said the LGBTQ community’s concerns were dismissed by officers who already had a strained relationship with marginalized people. This isn’t the first time Pride has been at odds with the Toronto police: In 2016, Black Lives Matter interrupted the parade with demands that included an end to uniformed police participation.

MORBNOTE III ; If I was in charge of the cops I’d just tell them ‘ We’ll be there doing our job , as usual , regardless of actively being IN the parade or along side it … Ready to arrest any individuals who dress inappropriately , loot , obstruct … whatever ‘ …
