    Is Niagara set to surpass the half million mark?

    Local

    With May 11 officially dubbed Census Day 2021, most Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast have completed or are in the process of completing the latest federal enumeration of the country’s population.

    Some 15 million households from Dawson City, Yukon to Digby, Nova Scotia received access to the quinquennial questionnaire over the last week. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, most participants did not actually receive a physical copy of the census form. Instead, households were provided a secure access code to complete the survey entirely online.

    “We have taken all necessary measures to conduct a safe census that will enable Canadians to tell their story, and provide vital information that contributes to the strength of our country and our communities,” said Anil Arora, Canada’s chief statistician.

    Schumer comes to Niagara Falls to push border reopening plan

    Local

    Democrat senator Chuck Schumer, the newly installed Senate Majority Leader and highest-ranking federal politician in the State of New York, held a press conference at the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls, New York on Wednesday.

    At the press conference, Schumer put forward a four-point plan for reopening the border between the U.S. and Canada.

    During his address, Senator Schumer pointed out that, “The deep, long-standing social and economic bonds that communities in Western New York and Southern Ontario share were abruptly severed last March to deal with the profound public health challenge that COVID presented, and since then residents and businesses up and down the northern border have been eagerly waiting for the day when rates would be low and vaccinations available so that restrictions could be relaxed and logically lifted.”

    More deceptive climate policy revealed

    Provincial

    It’s been a banner week for those of us who don’t buy in to the “climate emergency” narrative that so many activists, globalists, and some governments are trying to push these days.  This is not to say that we should not be concerned about environmental issues and do all manner of sensible things to have a positive impact.
