A civics lesson about "democracy"

Pure “democracy” can be very destructive. In a democracy, if you have 2 poor men and 1 rich man the two can vote to tax the rich man, and “democracy” will have worked. A common definition of “republic” is, to quote the American Heritage Dictionary, “A political order in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who are entitled to vote for officers and representatives responsible to them” — the USA is that. A common definition of “democracy” is, “Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives” — the USA is that, too. The… Read more »

🇨🇦 is not 🇺🇸 The lesson about Canada

Why is Canada a democracy?
The politics of Canada function within a framework of parliamentary democracy and a federal system of parliamentary government with strong democratic traditions. Canada is a constitutional monarchy, in which the monarch is head of state. … Canada has placed emphasis on equality and inclusiveness for all its people….

Yarmulka ban?

There is no Yarmulka ban in Quebec, rest assured, and no ban on Shabbat or Jewish life here. Thank God, the Quebec government is quite supportive of our community here. So any of you travelling here for the summer, please rest easy, you can wear your Kippah!

Yes, Yarmulka ban.

As turns out to be the case regarding much so-called, “fake news”, this ban is in fact true. There is NOT a ban on the general public – nobody ever said there was.
