Huge Fateh. The Indian Supreme Court convicted a Congress Party politician for his role in the 1984 anti-Sikh pogroms. Grateful to human rights giant for fighting until was held accountable. Most high profile conviction to date.

Hey , that Public Safety Canada report’s mention of “Sikh extremism” is inexcusable. There is zero evidence that it’s warranted: why is it there now? Prove it or remove it — and apologize while you’re at it

Yes an unpaid transit ticket shouldnt lead to deportation. Tho that isnt technically what sanctuary cities are because cities claim no jurisdiction over trans link. We did however have a campaign targeting translink that forced them to cancel their MOU with CBSA.

Interim injunction against along with enforcement order granted. 72 hours to remove gate so TransCanada / Coastal Gas has right of way to work. Interlocutory injunction will be adjourned until no later than May 1 2019. Colonial BS.

Say Mr. X bought 10 years ago. Using the Teranet HPI, we can see that the average home price 10y ago here was about 1/2 of what is today (0.504x actually, but rounding to make it easier) that means over 10y he's made $2M on his house. $2M, that's $200,000 a year tax free. /5

Our government seized a 7 year-old, and did not give her anything to eat or drink for 8 and a half hours. She died as a result while being held prisoner.

VSB doesn't have an access without fear policy, it has guidelines and practices. there is no prohibition in the policy to not ask for birth certificates or immigration documents. DRPC requires it to establish eligibility for all students (regardless of status) born outside Canada

Just wanted to casually let you all know that right now a movement in France is being appropriated to advance a pro-oil, anti-climate change, anti-immigration, Nationalist movement - en masse - across Canada. And they are set to demonstrate across the country on Saturday.

BC Rental Housing Taskforce recommendations came out today. Unfortunately it does little to protect renters: no top priories of housing advocates adopted.
