Mango Jicama Slaw Recipe

While we had these nice fresh and ripe mangoes, we wanted to do a salad with them, too. So, we made this very simple and delicious mango jicama slaw. The mangoes have lots of bright flavour, and the jicama has an amazing crunchy texture. They go very well together, and honestly need very little in the way of dressing or additional flavours. We just dress this with a bit of lime juice, salt, and green onion and cilantro.

This dish goes as a great side for grilled meats, or any number of rich and fatty things. We ate it with the roasted pork we made in last week's video, and it was just a perfect accompaniment.

Canadian Far-Right Party Becomes Official, Outs All Its Members

As per Elections Canada rules, the names of the Canadian Nationalist Party members became public when the party became legit—the members' identities were quickly amplified by anti-fascists.

From the full article here: https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/43knzp/canadian-far-right-party-becomes-official-outs-all-its-members

Last month the Canadian Nationalist Party (CNP) became an official party in Canada. To attain this status, a party provided Elections Canada with 250 names of members. These names become public information when party status is granted. Knowing this, the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, Anti-Racist Canada, and Yellow Vest Canada Exposed (YVCE) threatened to release the names if they ever became a party.

Well, the anti-fascists kept their word, and released the names on Thursday—VICE has viewed the documents.

The Canadian Anti-Hate Network describes the CNP as “a neo-Nazi party.” The party’s far-right leanings are obvious. Their “demographic policy” explicitly endorses white nationalism, reading "we must maintain the demographic status of the current European-descended majority.” The party infamously published a screed against “parasitic tribes” in June, was accused of anti-Semitism, then put out a correction months later claiming they weren’t talking about Jews.

Seemingly as a response, the CNP posted the names on their website after they were posted by the anti-fascists. In a video accompanying the post, Patron praised the people as "heroes," but doesn’t give a reason why he posted the names. The names are tabulated in the same way as the anti-racists, leading Liz from YVCE to think Patron straight-up copy-and-pasted it from their site in a ploy to show "that it doesn't bother them." Obviously some members were confused by Patron posting the names and one asked if he had "permission" to post the information.

Great, split that vote on the right even further. Make Scheer scrabble with Bernier to get those white nationalists who think they're both too centrist.

Apricot Raspberry Jam Glazed Pork Loin Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, we put up a video for homemade apricot raspberry jam, which was extremely delicious. This week, we're going to cover a pork loin with that jam and roast it! This is basically a method for making a simple fruit marinade out of some jam or preserves with a little bit of added salt (the soy sauce) and some savoury garlic and ginger. The soy sauce helps set up an osmotic loop which helps the pork absorb flavour from the marinade.

You could obviously use any number of different fruit preserves for this. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't scorch, but it's got a great flavour and makes a great sweet and salty crust.

Need some advice/direction for research

I want to do some research on the circuit party scene, mostly historical, during its peak in the 80's through the early 00's. Can anyone recommend a good "warts and all" reading list about the circuit party scene?

Your new favourite sweet potato casserole recipe!

So, my hubby (the chef in our videos, I just do the filming and voice-over) comes from Texas, originally. He's well familiar with the standard Texan and southern Thanksgiving fare that frequently includes sweet potato casserole. Frequently, this is a very sweet concoction, full of sugar or maple syrup, covered in marshmallows, that sort of thing. I've been to a couple of Thanksgiving dinners with his extended family and, never having much of a sweet tooth myself, was shocked at how sweet this dinner side dish was. So, hubby wanted to do a delicious sweet potato recipe that wouldn't top out on the sugar, and would actually taste like something!

So, this recipe is the result of his experiments. It's full of flavour, and the interaction between the cinnamon, the garlic, and the raisins gives it a distinctly Moroccan accent. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of butter in here, so it's not like this dish is health food, exactly, but at least it's not smothered in sugar! Of course if you hate raisins, you can leave out the rum soaked raisins, or replace them with another fruit like chopped dried apricots or something like that. Soaking them in rum is option, but delicious.

Doug Ford government held talks with PC donor on removing Greenbelt land

Full article here: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/doug-ford-greenbelt-housing-vaughan-milani-rizmi-developer-1.5263980

The Ontario government spent nearly a year in talks with a developer about a pitch to build housing in the province's Greenbelt, despite Premier Doug Ford's promise not to touch the protected area, CBC News has learned. The discussions involved a 60-hectare property in the northeastern corner of Vaughan. The land is owned by a family whose members have donated more than $100,000 to the Progressive Conservative party in recent years, including to Ford's 2018 leadership bid.

Documents obtained by CBC News show that shortly after Ford took power, landowner Lucia Milani of Rizmi Holdings approached the provincial government with the aim of getting the property's protected status lifted.

"Rizmi has advised that they will seek residential uses ... of their land holdings," says a briefing document the ministry official prepared for Clark last December.

Tim Gray, executive director of the group Environmental Defence, reviewed the government documents and said they indicate the Ford government was "moving to allow this land to be removed from the Greenbelt." The government was "under no obligation whatsoever" to take any action on the developer's request, said Gray in an interview with CBC News.

"They should have said 'Go away, it's a protected natural area,'" said Gray. "Now is the time to stop the process, make it very clear to the developer that this land is going to stay protected within the Greenbelt and it will not become a subdivision."

The grift is strong with Dougie. He lies as easily as Trump does.

Mango Sorbet Recipe

A friend of ours was having a Tiki-themed birthday party recently, and we volunteered to bring something to mix with rum in some refreshing summer Tiki drinks. We made this delicious mango sorbet! It's a super simple recipe, and the toughest part is probably just getting the mango flesh off of the skin. We didn't spice it up in any way, we really just wanted to highlight the natural mango flavour, plus it was going to get mixed with booze anyway.

This method works very well with many different kinds of fruit. Some fruit even benefits from heating up the puree in with the sugar syrup! For things with delicate flavours like peach and strawberry we wouldn't recommend it, because it gives the final product a kind of "cooked" taste that's not as nice as the natural fruit flavour from a plain raw puree.
