On This Day

September 20, 1917

The Parliament of Canada passes legislation giving some women the right to vote in federal elections.

This right is limited to women who are British subjects; 21 years of age or older; and the wife, widow, mother, sister or daughter of any person, male or female, living or dead, who had served in the military. Another law grants the right to vote to some 2,000 military nurses, known as “Bluebirds,” stationed in Europe.

After the 1917 election, the government will extend this right to all non-Indigenous Canadians who are British subjects and 21 years of age or older.

Dawson College & Gun Control

  • Survivors of Dawson College shootings urge voters not to support the Conservatives » The Halifax Star
  • 15 years ago on this date, a single gunman, armed with a Beretta Cx4 Storm assault rifle, a shotgun, and a Glock semi-automatic handgun, went on a shooting rampage at the Dawson College in Montreal, Quebec.
    • One 18-year old woman, Anastasia De Sousa, died at the scene, while another 19 were injured. The shooter eventually committed suicide, after being shot in the arm by a police officer
    • Erin O’Toole, the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, continues to repeat the lie that the Beretta Cx4 Storm assault rifle used in the Dawson College shooting, was illegally obtained. It was not. The shooter obtained it legally. The Liberal government banned the Beretta Cx4 and 1,500 other assault-style weapons after the Dawson College shooting. O’Toole has promised the gun lobby to make the Beretta Cx4 Storm, the AK-47, and other assault weapons designed to hunt and kill humans legal again in Canada.

Canadian Election T –10

O’Toole promises to appoint a vaccinated health minister if his party wins

Because Anita Anand and the rest of the Liberal Government did such a poor job?

The Guardian – August 13, 2021 »

Today, Canada has the highest vaccination rate – of single and double doses – anywhere in the world. Almost 82% of the eligible population age 12 and older have received at least one dose – and 70.3% are fully vaccinated.

The success – a combination of savvy negotiations, financial resources and high trust in public health institutions – has likely prepared it to battle an impending fourth wave, led by the highly-infectious Delta variant.But Canada’s success also underscores the challenges of balancing vaccine procurement with the inequities in global access.

The Conservatives are again trying to play tricks on Canadians.

Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools that don’t have brains enough to be honest.
