A University of Alberta economist who used his Twitter account to ridicule Conservatives as “idiots” and “sociopaths” received more than $68,000 in sole-sourced federal contracts, records show. Economist Andrew Leach yesterday said he made no secret of his work.

“Are we governed by idiots beholden to sociopaths or sociopaths beholden to idiots?” Professor Leach wrote in a 2023 tweet on the Alberta government. “I suppose idiots beholden to idiots and sociopaths beholden to sociopaths are also possibilities here.”

Leach was named in an Inquiry Of Ministry tabled in the

By Valerie / June 19, 2024 /

More than 36,000 foreign students have claimed refugee protection in Canada, records show. The figures covering the period from 2018 identified five universities and colleges with the highest number of refugee claims.

The Department of Immigration in an Inquiry Of Ministry tabled in the Commons said 36,075 foreign students had claimed asylum in Canada. Of those a total 32,855 were referred to the Immigration and Refugee Board.

Decisions in the majority of cases are still pending, said the Inquiry. The figures were tabled at the request of Conservative MP Luc Berthold (Mégantic-L’Érable, Que.) who asked, “With regard to asylum claims made by individuals who arrived in Canada on a student visa since 2018, how many claims were accepted?”

Too Much Paperwork: Survey

By Valerie / June 19, 2024 /

Federal hiring practices are buried in paperwork, says a Public Service Commission survey of government managers. Nine out of 10 rated it “burdensome.”

“A greater proportion of managers believed the process to staff a position is burdensome, 86 percent,” said the Staffing And Non-Partisanship Survey. Findings were based on questionnaires with 84,741 federal employees.

Asked why hiring was so complicated, a majority complained there was “too much paperwork” (64 percent), “too many approval stages” (59 percent) and a “security clearance process that takes too much time” (57 percent).

By Valerie / June 19, 2024 /

High temperatures have a major detrimental impact on Quebec’s health-care system, a team from the National Institute for Scientific Research (INRS) has shown, a finding more critical now given that these events are likely to multiply due to climate change.

Researchers found the impact on the health care system is felt throughout the summer, not just when the province experiences at least three consecutive days of very high temperatures.

Islamism Killed My Partner. Why Won’t the West Fight It? My daughters have grown up without a father because of an ideology that Western politicians now often refuse to name

By Valerie / June 19, 2024 /

On the evening of November 13, 2015, I recorded a video of my partner, Guillaume, laughing and dancing round the living room with our two daughters, aged four and seven. Just a few minutes later, he left our apartment in eastern Paris to go to the Bataclan concert hall.

A rock critic who wrote under the name Guillaume B. Decherf, he loved nothing more than good music, and was excited about seeing Eagles of Death Metal that night. In his review for Les Inrockuptibles, he had praised the band’s latest album. Its “sole aim,” he wrote, was “to give pleasure,” before signing off with a flourish: “Plaisir partagé!” A pleasure shared.
