There seems to be a problem embedding the video from YouTube so I can just post the link.
A Muslim migrant has raped 10 teen-aged girls and is in prison for, wait for it, a grand total of two years.
The story buried in a Montreal newspaper, Ezra Levant of The Rebel won't let it be hidden there.

It is amazing how people simply deny what is happening. Afraid to be called "racist", they bow to the progressive mindset of accepting all cultures as morally equal. Unfortunately, the truth will be learned through violence.
Mark Steyn has been on top of this for a decade, but no one is listening.
Well, perhaps Donald Trump is.

.... when your liberal friends say they appreciate the statements of this Pope
.... when the Pope seems to be more concerned with matters of the world than matters of the spirit, e.g. speeches about harming the environment and practically nothing about sexual sins and abortion
.... when stories emerge of Pope Francis' rants inside the Vatican
.... when devoted Catholics feel marginalized by this pontiff
The list goes on. Some of the latest include the Pope's language on abortion, substitution "interruption of pregnancy" for the word abortion, his statements that all religions are religions of peace when evidence abounds to show the opposite, when he said we should confess the sin of 'littering', when orthodox clergy are demoted and clergy who share the Pontiff's worldview are put in their stead.
I have provided some quotes and links below.
A few months ago, I included in my daily prayer journal a prayer for the ending of this papacy. I am not wishing for Francis' death or demise, but I am asking God to somehow intervene to stop Francis' influence on the church. Because he is causing dismay, he is creating confusion, and he is undermining the authority of the Catholic church.
The traditionalist blog Rorate Caeli suggested that ‘ageing or an underlying medical issue’ was responsible for his ‘persistent anger, rancour, vituperation, use of uncouth words (which is known to be increasingly frequent in private)’.
Again, this is an opponent speaking. There is no evidence that the Pope is mentally ill. However, plenty of Vatican employees will testify to his outbursts of temper, rudeness towards subordinates and vulgar language.
‘Bergoglio divides the church into those who are with him and those who are against him — and if he thinks you’re in the latter camp then he’ll come after you,’ says a priest who works in the curia.
It’s not hard to detect a Latin American flavour to the deal-making and settling of scores that has become blatant over the past year. Most Catholic bishops had thought Francis was a plain-spoken and perhaps touchingly naive reformer. Instead, they are confronted by a pope who is simultaneously combative, charming, bad-tempered, idealistic and vengeful.

Kudos to blogger Pat Maloney who keeps the blog http://run-with-life.blogspot.ca/
Pat has been digging into government statistics for years, writing to sitting politicians to obtain the facts, and she has been persistent in holding them to account for transparency with the people they claim to represent.
Pat found out that the Ontario government had excluded abortion stats from their annual reporting on medical procedures and she set out to discover why. After all, we have the Freedom of Information Act in Canada, and since we pay for all abortions with our tax dollars, we certainly have a right to know where that money is being spent.
Yesterday Pat got this information from the Ontario government.
45,471 abortions were done in Ontario in 2014/2015
The year 2014/15 is actually one year, from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015.
This number is obtained from OHIP billings, so all of those abortions were paid for by our taxes.
However, previous information from the government revealed that there were only 23,746 abortions for the year 2014. So the actual number of abortions is practically double what was previously reported.
Keep in mind that Stats Canada lists the number of abortions across the country as pretty close to 100,000 per year. And that does not include abortions done at private clinics, as well as a couple of provinces that simply do not report their abortion numbers to Statistics Canada.
You have to wonder what the actual number of abortions is across the country. Because if Ontario is having that number (half the given total), you can be sure that it exceeds 100,000 when you add in provinces like Quebec and BC.
Thanks to Pat for her diligence in this.

The news from Quebec is terrible and the loss of lives is truly regrettable. Our condolences and our prayers go with the victims of this assault on innocent people. May their families find peace after this tragedy that robbed them of their loved ones.
The bulletin from the archdiocese this week expressed Archbishop Mancini's condolences; this will be especially close to him as he has been a life-long resident of Quebec.
So here is the but. You knew it was coming.
AB Mancini attended a vigil at Halifax's Grand Parade for the victims and their families. Estimates of those who attended are in the 1000 range, that is a lot of people for a Halifax vigil.
I would ask why hasn't the Archbishop ever attended a vigil for the victims of abortion? There are close to 100,000 of them each year in Canada. He has been asked and he has declined; he has never been present at any pro-life public event. Nor have many of the priests of the diocese. I can count on one hand the clergy who have come out to Life Chain, or 40 Days for Life, or for the March for Life.
The Catholic Church teaches that abortion is an intrinsic evil.
And yet, our clergy do not come out for vigils for the unborn.Of all the crimes against humanity mentioned by the Second Vatican Council, including racism and anti-Semitism, two were singled out as “unspeakable crimes”: abortion and infanticide (Gaudium et Spes, 51).To say that an action is intrinsically illicit is to say that, when committed, it is always evil. There is no circumstance that could ever render the act morally good, or even morally neutral. Abortion is such an intrinsically evil act.
I know the reason. It is politically incorrect. No one will ever criticize the Archbishop for attending a vigil for people killed in an assault on a mosque. But should he ever stand publicly as a witness for pre-born life, he would be vilified by the media and certainly excoriated by the feminists.
Our poor weak clergy, who cannot even take the scorn of society when it comes to the issue of abortion, how are they ever going to lead us when things get even tougher?
