Diane Finley permits Jamaican rapper advocating deaths of gays into Canada.

Diane Finley wouldn't prevent Elephant Man, aka O'Neill Bryan from entering Canada. Besides his music being crap it also preaches killing homosexuals and even torching them alive. He writes such enduring beautiful lyrics such as a song called Log on.

Log on and step pon the chi chi man
(Log on and step on the queer man)
Dance wi a dance and a bun out a freaky man
(Join our dance and let's burn out the queer man)
Step pon him like a hold cloth
(Step on him like an old cloth)
A dance wi a dance and a crush out a bingi man
(Join our dance and let's crush queer men)
Do di walk, mek mi see the light and di torch dem fast
(Do the walk, let me see the lighter and torch*)

*lighter and torch: makeshift flame-thrower made from an aerosol can

Disgusting and conservatives consider this stuff "free speech" when it is obviously hate speech directed at a minority group. Substitute gay for any religion or ethnic group and this guy would have been sent away as soon as he arrived.

Instead we see him welcomed with open arms in Edmonton.

My advice to anyone who thinks this is horrendous and very un-Canadian is to take a walk down to Gingur Sky Lounge located at 15505 118th Ave, Edmonton and make your displeasure very well heard. Then whip of an email to Diane Finley telling her to go f**k herself because she doesn't know how to do her job, other than cruising around in limos for her eyes or some nonsense.

Jamaica might be proud to be the only country in the New World that allows the murder and rape of homosexuals but that doesn't mean we have to be proud to share an hemisphere with them.

Hamilton has cancelled the Elephant Man concert and here in Toronto, protests are planned for friday (the date of his concert here). The venue being used for this concert is the same as Prizm, a gay event and one of many that our community has at Kool Haus (Guvernment) and they have been advised of lost business if this concert goes forward. The owners of the venue claim to have been away when this concert deal was signed. They claim there is nothing they can do. Bullshit, their is always a choice and I am sure numerous lawsuits are in the works for enabling hate speech by providing a venue.

Oh and you can send your complaints to Dianne Finley, Useless "Heritage Minister".

All Elephant Man and Sizla concerts have been canceled in Southern Ontario, including Toronto and Hamilton. The fight is now in Ottawa where stupid people at a university booked this duo to perform in a place of higher learning. What retards. I am sure they will cancel as well. I am quite pleased to see that therewas enough support in Ontario from all communities to stop this concert of hate from going ahead.

Of course, we wouldn't have had this attack on our communities had Dianne Finley done her job properly. Really whats her purpose anyways? Limousine seat warmer??

Update 3

Its official! The concerst have all been canceled. The star mentions the federal government's silence on this issue.

Akim Larcher, founder of Stop Murder Music Canada – a coalition made up of 20 organizations that promote human rights – says the federal government has remained silent in this issue.

"They shouldn't have been allowed to get visas to perform in the country. It's not about censorship or artistic freedom. That stops when hate propaganda is involved," says Larcher.

Unfortunately it really isn't that surprising. The Conservative federal government has not done much to protect anyones rights during their tenure. Recommend this Post

John Tory & Deciding What Your Taxes Pay For

The position usually taken by proponents for funding "segregated" religious schools is that they are paying money into a system which they don't use and they want their funding to go towards religious education at a private school soon to be public school.

Well, lets look at that argument. Me and my husband are currently paying into public education but we have no children. Hell, a lot of Ontarians are paying into both public and catholic systems when they have no kids. So shouldn't our money go to where we need the services? Preferably I'd rather get a lower tax bill or even have the funding deposited back into my bank account. I have had to visit a doctor more this year than the last so can't my money be directed to others services that I ACTUALLY use?

Its also evident that some communities based on a religious lifestyle choice would definitely not be able to pay for their public schools based on what is collected from tax payers of that lifestyle choice. In this situation where does the extra funding come from? John Tory hasn't said from what I have seen or read so its probably safe to assume it comes from our tax dollars. So now we are going to be getting into a convoluted process of money going to your choice but not all since some other boards can't pay for themselves. Thats not where I want my money. Its bad enough paying for public education I don't use but as an atheist I will protest my cash going to a school based on a lifestyle choice such as religion.

So if you don't use doctors, ask John Tory to stop all your payments for it. Hell lets stop paying all our taxes until the government lets every individual decide where the government spends every cent of our tax money.

Makes a lot of sense doesn't it? Not really, but in the conservative world it seems to. Recommend this Post

Our Party Leaders should take a Cue from Spiders

I giant web found in a North Texas park has been found to have been created by a different species of spiders working together. Normally cannibalistic, they worked together to create a giant web, even sharing common strands of webbing.

A variety of spider species built on one another's work to create a sprawling web that blanketed hundreds of yards of trees and shrubs at a North Texas park, according to entomologists who studied the unusual formation.

Heavy rains early this summer created prime feeding conditions for the spiders, which worked collectively to spin a web that nearly covered a pond ripe with mosquitoes and other insects.

Dean studied 250 specimens and identified 12 families of spiders in the same web. He said the most prevalent type is from the tetragnathidae family, which typically weave individual orb-shaped webs.

Personally, I find spiders gross but won't kill any. I just avoid them. But if I stumbled into this web I would ask for a mercy killing. Eeewwww. Just as repugnant as our political parties and their leaders.

Maybe they should also stop being cannibalistic and work together to build a more grand, better Canada. Recommend this Post

John Tory's Segregated Schools Promise gets Worst.

So now these schools will be able to teach such topics as creationism (cretinism in my book). Is this supposed to make this idea more palatable? If anything, it confirms what I though would be taught which was the reason for my initial refusal to ever vote for John Tory. This is very bitter icing to put on that cake.

Whats wrong with having ALL our students learn about scientific truths backed up by hard science? Why would you want to send children out to a segregated school to learn about lies, mistruths and a bastardization of science?

John Tory you are a complete idiot.

Creationism is not even doing so well in the US, why would you want to import such a false idea into Ontario and have it taught in what you call a religious "Public" school which is open only to certain segments of the public? Why? Why? Why?

Why do you equate creationism as an equivalent alternative to scientific fact? Is it because it got equal consideration in the southern trailer parks? Thats not proof of truth Johnnie boy, it just means a couple people paid attention to a retard and thought he had a good idea.

My vote is now solidly behind Dalton. I was going to oppose his half ass plan which kept an elite group in their own "public" school and vote Green. But now my vote is going to Dalton to make sure that John Tory and his air brain segregated indoctrination centres stay only as a campaign promise.

Why in hell would anyone allow the teaching of something evangelicals cooked up in the last 20 years because they are on the wrong side of science is beyond me. Why a politician would allow it is absolutely a travesty and a betrayal of the people he would be responsible for. Recommend this Post
