BREAKING: Ontario Just Recorded The Lowest COVID-19 Cases In A Day Since Last September With 296 Infections Reported

Ontario truly didn’t come to play with anyone. That’s because the province reported 296 COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, marking the lowest infection rates seen since September of last year. According to the CBC, Ontario has just over 5,000 active infections right now. To put this into perspective, the report explains that during the worst moment of the third wave, the province saw almost 43,000 active cases. However, according to the report, the province stops counting a case as “active” after 14 days, which means that it’s still possible that people are experiencing COVID-related symptoms but are no longer being tracked. What’s more, the provinces counted 382 people with the disease being looked after in intensive care units. Additionally, 244 were in need o...

Islamophobia Is On The Rise In Canada And The Attack In London Isn’t An Isolated Incident

Canada labels multiculturalism and diversity as its greatest strength, but the brutal reality of being Muslim-Canadian proves otherwise. The recent terrorist attack in London, Ontario is just one of many other Islamophobic attacks to take place in Canada. Challenging Canada’s alleged existence of “diversity” and “multiculturalism,” racism and hate are very present below the surface of Canada’s misleading reputation. The question arises: does Canada’s fabric of multiculturalism even exist? Islamophobia in Canada With nearly 46 per cent of Canadians hosting an unfavourable view of Islam, it is without a doubt that threads of Islamophobia are weaved into Canada’s social fabric. To make matters worse, Islamophobia, in Canada, is a gendered form of hate and racism. While Muslim men are stereoty...

Mixed Feelings In Canada After Billions Of Dollars Down The Pipe Following Joe Biden’s Cancellation Of Keystone XL Project

The $9 billion oil pipeline project expected to bring crude oil from Canada’s Western sands to U.S. refiners was terminated Wednesday by TC Energy Corp. and Alberta’s provincial government. The Keystone XL Project, a project that had been in the works since 2008, was cancelled by TC Energy Corp. after U.S. President Joe Biden revoked a key permit needed for the project to continue running. If successful, the pipeline would have transported 830,000 barrels of oil from Hardisty, Alta., to Nebraska, and then connect back to the original keystone at the U.S. refineries. “We remain disappointed and frustrated with the circumstances surrounding the Keystone XL project, including the cancellation of the presidential permit for the pipeline’s border crossing,” Alberta’...

Canadians And Advocates Are Dragging Conservatives For ‘Fake Sentiments’ After A 2017 Motion Condemning Islamophobia Was Rejected

Following the tragic London, Ontario attack that left four people dead and one boy injured, in what police are calling a racially-fuelled hate crime, many Canadians have been calling out political leaders for their “fake sentiments.” The online dragging comes after individuals took a deep dive and found that Conservatives and Bloc Québécois MPs opposed a motion that would condemn Islamophobia back in 2017. This, tied in with countless political leaders using their Twitter accounts to denounce Islamophobia, made for a very awkward moment. “The same individuals who were either outspoken about (the non-binding Motion 103 in 2017) or didn’t vote in favour of it are now conveying their thoughts and prayers, but it comes to a point where we’re beyond thoughts and prayers,” Irfan Chau...

Canadians Won’t Have To Quarantine For 2 Weeks When Returning Home From Travels On 1 Condition

The federal government is preparing to remove quarantine requirements for Canadians returning home from abroad. The catch is you have to be fully vaccinated. According to Health Minister Patty Hajdu, under the new rules fully vaccinated citizens will still have to take a COVID-19 test on arrival to Canada. They must also have somewhere to isolate until their test returns negative.
