A new kind of war against an enemy fighting a new and completely moral-free kind of battle.

Why should we vote for anyone in the primaries if they refuse to shout about this great injustice?

Meet Canada's New Minister of Justice and Attorney General: Jody Wilson-Raybould

http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2015/11/jody-wilson-raybould-minister-of-justice-attorney-general/




Jody Wilson-Raybould was just sworn in as Canada’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. She’s also the MP representing the new riding of Vancouver-Granville, which serves nearly 100,000 Vancouverites.

The 44-year-old’s first foray into federal politics was last year when she secured the nomination for Vancouver-Granville. Wilson-Raybould has a long history of serving the First Nations community, being part of the We Wai Kai First Nation herself.


Wilson-Raybould’s background is in law. She graduated from the University of Victoria with a Political Science degree and then a law degree from UBC. She was called to the Bar in 2000 where she served as a prosecutor at the Main Street courthouse on the Downtown Eastside for four years.

She was also elected as regional chief of the B.C. Assembly of First Nations in 2009, but she stepped down in June of 2015 in order to be able to run for the Liberals in the October 19 federal election.

Wilson-Raybould’s First Nations name is “Puglaas,” a Kwak’wala name which means “woman born to noble people.” Her Twitter account is aptly named @Puglaas. Her father, Bill Wilson, is a First Nations politician, while her mother, Sandra Wilson, is a teacher."

The Right Honourable Lt.-Col. Harjit Singh Sajjan, Minister of National Defence

The first Canadian of Sikh and Indian heritage to command a Canadian Army regiment




"Decorated Canadian war veteran Lt. Col Harjit Singh Sajjan received the Order of Military Merit last Friday, one of the military’s highest recognition, the Order of Military Merit.

He is the first Sikh to receive this award and continues to be a role model for youth across the country as he prepares to serve his country in new ways.

Sajjan, who is rumoured to be running for the Vancouver South federal Liberal nomination and close to federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, is the son of the former member of the World Sikh Organization (WSO) Kundan Singh Sajjan.

Sajjan is an Afghanistan war hero who is the first Sikh to command a Canadian Army regiment and who was portrayed as a role model in Ottawa’s latest Welcome to Canada booklet for immigrants. Sajjan is also a former Vancouver police officer, decorated after serving once in Bosnia and three times in Afghanistan."

Study: Human DNA Found in 2% of Hot Dogs and Sausages Analyzed by Genome Sequencing

http://www.clearfood.com/food_reports/2015/the_hotdog_report

Cross Contamination of Pork and Meat in Vegetarian Food Aslo Found

Of the 345 hot dogs and sausages Clear Food analyzed for this report, 14.4% were problematic in some way. Problems included substitutions and hygienic issues. Substitution occurs when ingredients are added that do not show up on the label. Hygienic issues occur when some sort of non-harmful contaminant is introduced to the hot dog, in most cases, human DNA. Here's what we found:

Substitution: We encountered a surprising number of substitutions or unexpected ingredients. We found evidence of meats not found on labels, an absence of ingredients advertised on labels, and meat in some vegetarian products.

Hygienic issues: Clear Food found human DNA in 2% of the samples. 2/3rds of the samples with human DNA were vegetarian products.*

We found evidence of chicken (in 10 samples), beef (in 4 samples), turkey (in 3 samples), and lamb (in 2 samples) in products that were not supposed to contain those ingredients.

Pork is a particularly unwelcome substitution in any food when you consider that significant numbers of people do not eat pork for religious reasons. Clear Food found pork substitution in 3% of the samples we tested. In most cases, pork found its way into chicken and turkey sausages.

Pork substitution was an issue in products across the price spectrum being sold at a wide variety of retailers.
