John Ivison: Ottawa cautiously considers opening Canada's doors to Hongkongers fleeing their 'Tiananmen moment'
Hong Kong has just experienced its “Tiananmen moment,” according to China watcher Margaret McCuaig-Johnston. One of the world’s great cities is having its autonomy, dynamism and creativity leeched from it by the Communist Party of China, following the introduction of a draconian new security law. The law, introduced on June 30th,  subjects everyone in Hong Kong to a strict ban on political activity that Beijing deems a danger to national security. Canada’s response has been limited to expressions of concern, at least until Friday, when Justin Trudeau announced the suspension of this country’s extradition treaty with Hong Kong; a new travel advisory, warning of a “increased risk of arbitrary detention” in the territory; and, the revocation of export permits for “sensitive goods,” like crowd-control equipment used by the Hong Kong Police Force. NP View: The day democracy died in Hong Kong Section applying Chinese national security law to whole world chills Canadian activists Trudeau said Canada is joining the international community in expressing its growing concerns. That’s not strictly true. When the United Nations Human Rights Council took a vote, 53 countries supported China’s crackdown, while only 27 countries criticized the law. The voting pattern shows how effective China’s debt-trap diplomacy has been: Support came from a mix of autocracies like North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Syria, and countries deeply indebted to China as part of its Belt and Road infrastructure project. Francois-Philippe Champagne, the global affairs minister, said Canada is in good company criticizing the law, alongside a number of liberal democracies. Champagne said Ottawa is considering additional measures around immigration, in conjunction with the U.K. and Australia, which have already talked about a “pathway to citizenship” for Hongkongers who want to leave the territory. (Three million Hongkongers born before the 1997 handover hold British National (overseas) passports, which will allow them to settle in the U.K. for five years before applying for citizenship.) Champagne said freedom and liberty are the “pillars” on which Hong Kong was built. “I went there for the first time in 1986 and anyone who has ever been in Hong Kong realizes that there is something special there. This is a significant step back,” he said in an interview. The new security law claims human rights will be respected and “freedom of speech, of the press, of publication and of association… shall be protected”. “Time will tell,” said Champagne. The new law applies life sentences for crimes of terrorism, subversion, secession and collusion. Even the U.N. says the law includes “poorly defined crimes,” easily subject to abuse and repression. What remains to be seen is how strictly those provisions are applied, but the early signs are not encouraging. The law was introduced at 11pm on June 30 and there have been 10 arrests already, with one person detained for carrying a pro-independence flag. Subversion could mean simply “disrupting or undermining” the government. The protesters slogan: “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times” has already been deemed seditious, since it condones Hong Kong independence. A new Office for Safeguarding National Security will be created under the legislation, gathering information and handling “complex” cases that may end up being prosecuted on the mainland. The office, which is not subject to Hong Kong law, will “strengthen the management” of relations with international organizations, NGOs and foreign news agencies. The Department of Justice will establish a specialist prosecution division. Trials will be presided over by judges picked by the government, who may decide to dispense with jurors. The package of 66 articles is much worse than anyone had anticipated. The Chinese government has gambled that its clampdown will not kill the golden goose. Hong Kong accounts for just three per cent of Chinese GDP, down from around 25 per cent at the time of the handover in 1997. But the prospect that any criticism of the regime might be interpreted as subversion or collusion with a foreign country will, inevitably, kill the magic that made the territory a magnet for talent and money. McCuaig-Johnston, senior fellow at the China Institute at the University of Alberta, said the dilemma for many people who live there is not about promoting Hong Kong independence, but whether they can protest to protect the level of democracy that already exists. Prominent Hong Kong democracy activist Nathan Law has already fled the city for his own safety. McCuaig-Johnston said Canada should take in Hongkongers who want to come here, if China permits them to leave. Champagne confirmed the government will have more to say in the coming days and weeks. But Ottawa has to weigh the impact of such a move on its efforts to free Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig from Chinese jails. China has called on Britain and Australia to “remedy their mistake,” following their announcements of possible help for Hongkongers. Champagne said “the world is watching” what happens in the territory. But China is oblivious to shaming and impervious to pressure. Xi Jinping simply has no incentive to conform to international rules, as he tries to upturn the status quo in the western Pacific through stealth and intimidation. I write this with immense sadness, knowing that these views could leave me open to arrest if I ever re-visit Hong Kong, a city I love.Carrie Lam, the territory’s puppet chief executive, said Hong Kong will remain an international city for international businesses and international media to come and carry out their activities as normal. That is wishful thinking. Who in their right mind is going to risk their liberty doing business in what is now a surveillance state? It’s a tragedy.

Why Mandatory Masks Indoors Helps Fight COVID-19 In Canada
Over the last couple of weeks, a particular genre of amateur filmmaking has begun clogging up our social media feeds. Each is filmed in some seemingly arbitrary location, a setting unaccustomed to the spotlight of internet infamy. Grocery stores. Curb-side cafes. Local Walmarts. In all of these clips, the viewer bears witness to the unfolding of a modern horror story: customers, emboldened by their private sense of justice, refuse to wear their masks. Most of these clips have been filmed in the United States, but that isn’t to say versions of them don’t occur in Canada, too. At the end of May, for example, the owners of a convenience store in Toronto reported being attacked by four men after forcibly removing a customer who refused to wear a mask. One of the owners said it was tough to listen to the sounds of her own screams on the video recording from a camera outside. The other’s face was bruised for six weeks after.Municipalities across Ontario have been “seriously exploring” the idea of making face masks mandatory in indoor spaces over the last couple of weeks. And on June 30, as if to answer that strain of bewildering video, Toronto City Council voted unanimously in favour of requiring people to cover their faces in all enclosed public places, including:retail storesconvenience storesmalls, shopping plazasgrocery stores, bakeries, farmer’s markets (enclosed areas)restaurants, bars (when permitted to open for indoor service)indoor recreational facilities, gyms, swimming pools (when permitted to open)librariescommunity centrescommunity service agenciespersonal service settingschurches, mosque, synagogue, temples and faith settingsart galleries, museums, aquariums, zoosbanquet halls, convention centres, arenas, stadiums, and other event spacesreal estate facilities such as open house, presentation centrescommon areas in hotels, motels and short-term rentals (e.g. lobbies, elevators, meeting rooms)entertainment facilities including concert venues, theatres, cinemas, casinosbusiness offices open to the public“It is about respecting and protecting each other,” mayor John Tory said, per CBC, at a news conference on occasion of the temporary bylaw. “We know we are at a critical time in the fight against COVID-19, and that we must do everything we can to avoid the flare ups that we’ve seen in other places.”This makes Toronto the only Canadian city other than Windsor to officially mandate face coverings in indoor public spaces, though similar measures have been or are presently being considered in Quebec, Alberta and Ottawa.To protect the health and safety of our communities, today, Toronto City Council voted unanimously in favour of requiring masks or face coverings in all enclosed public places as of July 7 to help stop the spread of COVID-19. News release: https://t.co/zUEeTD0NdXpic.twitter.com/eNZsNMbr25— City of Toronto (@cityoftoronto) June 30, 2020What’s in the new bylaw?The new rule will go into effect on July 7, and corresponds with a matching initiative, launched July 2, to make face coverings mandatory on public transit. (There is a plan to circulate one million non-medical masks to transit users, with a particular focus on those from low-income and marginalized communities.) It’s all part of an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus as we wade further into Stage 2 of the pandemic.Though mayor Tory has announced the city won’t be aggressively enforcing the new bylaw, the city solicitor told CBC that she anticipates the corresponding fine to be “in the ballpark” of $750 to $1,000 — a lot of money, for not wearing a mask.There are a couple of exceptions, as there are to any rule. Those who cannot wear masks for medical reasons, as well as children under the age of two, will not be required to cover their faces. Similarly, residents will be allowed to temporarily remove masks while having meals, receiving services or doing fitness activities. The bylaw also won’t apply to apartment buildings, condos, childcare facilities, schools, or unenclosed areas like patios.Watch: How effective are homemade face masks? Story continues below.Why does this matter?The decision comes on the heels of a new study released on Thursday in Proceedings of the Natural Academy of the United States of America, which learned that mandatory face masks helped prevent more than 78,000 infections over a month’s span in Italy, and more than 66,000 during a three-week span in New York City. Basically, bylaws like the one just introduced in Toronto have been scientifically proven to prevent interhuman transmission of the virus.If you can recall — and who has any sense of time, nowadays — it was just back in May when over 100 of the world’s most prominent academics signed an open letter asking the government to mandate face coverings in public spaces.After an international cross-disciplinary review of scientific research conducted by 19 experts, they called on governments to mandate the masks in all public places, as well as business leaders to require their employees to wear them even where it wasn’t required by local law. “I think the biggest thing with COVID now that shapes all of this guidance on masks is that we can’t tell who’s infected,” infectious disease specialist Peter Chin-Hong told UCSF. “You can’t look in a crowd and say, oh, that person should wear mask. There’s a lot of asymptomatic infection, so everybody has to wear a mask.”A refresher on the benefits to wearing masksSince the beginning of the pandemic, masks have been a political flashpoint in the national conversation about how to stay safe. At first, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officially discouraged people from wearing them, but later circled back on their recommendations after more evidence had surfaced.“It is a simple, inexpensive measure that can have a significant impact in reducing the spread of the virus,” Dr. Simone Wildes, an infectious disease physician at South Shore Health in Massachusetts, told ABC News. “We have to remember if we don’t take these measures there will be more cases and more deaths.”Insightful: Japan doesn’t even require people to wear masks. Yet people do it anyway because people respect each other and put protecting public safety as paramount. As result, here is Japan versus the US and even Europe. If you can barely see Japan, it’s at the bottom. #covid19https://t.co/5nL4xgMJIxpic.twitter.com/ohJD2ohbww— Eric Feigl-Ding (@DrEricDing) June 28, 2020The benefits to wearing masks in public are manifold: accumulating evidence has found they can both prevent you from spreading respiratory droplets to others, in the event that you’re infected, and might prevent some of the viral particles from worming their way into your nose and mouth, though that argument has been much shakier than the former.Many people are still out there who are asymptomatic, and don’t realize they’re infected by the virus. Making masks mandatory for everyone helps to reduce the risk of transmission in these scenarios. If everyone takes precautions, everyone is safer.RELATED 3 Ways To Make Your Own Face Mask At Home The Questions We All Have About Wearing Face Masks There's ASMR For Your COVID-19 Anxiety Now, Because Of Course When And Why Should You Wear A Face Mask In Public?

Federal Ethics Commissioner investigates Trudeau's ties to WE Charity over $912-million student volunteer grant
OTTAWA – The federal Ethics Commissioner will investigate the links between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and WE Charity, the organization with close ties to the Trudeau family to which the government outsourced an over $900-million student volunteer grant program last week. According to letters received by both the Conservatives and the NDP on Friday afternoon, the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion says he has advised Justin Trudeau that he will be opening an investigation into many facets of the WE Charity deal. “In your letter, you allege that, given the existence of Mr. Trudeau’s close family ties with WE Charity and the outsourcing of this project to the charity over the federal public service or another volunteer organization, Mr. Trudeau afforded preferential treatment to WE Charity in contravention … of the Conflict of Interest Act,” Dion wrote in a July 3 letter to NDP MP Charlie Angus. “I have considered your request and am of the view that it satisfies the requirements set out in … the Act. I am therefore commencing an examination.” WE Charity co-founder said PMO 'called' to award $900M student-grant program, contradicting Trudeau WE Charity pulls out of $912-million contract with Trudeau government Last week, Trudeau announced that the government was outsourcing the $912-million Canada Student Service Grant to WE Charity, an organization who has close ties to the prime minister and his family. Trudeau had regularly attended or hosted “WE Day”, the organization’s annual stadium-sized rally for Canadian youth, up until 2017. His wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, is currently a “WE ambassador and ally”, hosts a podcast with the organization and attended a WE Day event with her daughter and the prime minister’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, in London in March. After a week of controversy, Trudeau announced Friday that WE Charity had pulled out of the deal. For example, the National Post reported on Monday that WE Charity — which has close ties to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family — had received only sole-source contracts from the federal government in the last three years. Tuesday, video obtained by the National Post showed WE Charity co-founder saying that the prime minister’s office had called his organization directly asking it to “help implement” the Canada Student Service Grant. This is the sixth time the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner has investigated Trudeau’s behaviour since he was elected prime minister in 2015. Two of those times, the Commissioner concluded that Trudeau had violated federal ethics laws. More to come.

LEGO's Art Kits For Grownups Are Here To Turn Your Home Into A Museum
Here’s the truth: we aren’t all artists. If we were, the world would certainly be a different place. Another truth: most of us are stressed out. New data from Health Canada found roughly 11 million Canadians are experiencing high levels of COVID-19-related stress, and an IPSOS poll saw a majority of men and women claiming their mental health has been negatively affected by the pandemic. Enter a distraction that’s typically reserved for kids! On Wednesday, LEGO announced the launch of a “new canvas for creative expression,” specifically tailored to adults. It’s this new line of pop-culture-themed art kits, which are designed so that once you’ve built them, you can hang them up as artwork. Much easier than sculpting, or painting, or taking a good photograph! Call it plastic pointillism.For $119.99 apiece, you can select from four different art kits to build. When we think of LEGO, we often (wrongly) imagine kids filling in their idle time by playing around on the floor. But adults may find benefits in playing with the interlocking bricks, too. In fact, LEGO Art promises to simultaneously “relieve stress” and “set your creative side free.”Watch: Practicing mindfulness might help you get through the pandemic. Story continues below.The four sets are immediately recognizable to any fan of popular culture and each one stokes nostalgia. There’s a Marvel Studios Iron Man kit. There’s a recreation of Andy Warhol’s iconic diptych of Marilyn Monroe. There’s a Star Wars Sith-themed set, from which you can build portraits of Darth Vader, or Darth Maul, or Kylo Ren; and there’s an homage to The Beatles — all four of them. The point is you can buy more than one of each kit to build out all possible portraits, and hang them next to each other.  View this post on InstagramA post shared by LEGO (@lego) on Jul 1, 2020 at 6:01am PDTOh, not to mention each is accompanied by a soundtrack. While building your portrait of, say, Sir Paul McCartney, you can listen to “stories and unexpected details about the band.” It’s a whole immersive experience designed to get you thinking a little more like an artist, in the hopes of calming your nerves. At a cursory glance, it might seem weird to associate an ancient Buddhist technique with the world’s largest toymaker, but a recent Washington Postarticle would suggest it all makes sense. “To focus singularly on a task is a form of mindfulness,” Carrie Barron, director of the Creativity for Resilience Program at the University of Texas at Austin’s Dell Medical School, told the Post. Working with Lego, apparently, can help you to separate from “the mania of the day.”And lately, we’ve had so much mania. It’s like a constantly regenerating club that beats everyone over the head just when we think it has crumbled to bits. On the bright side, though, there are a bunch of ways you can try to practice mindfulness in the wake of so much stress: yoga, meditation, long walks, and focusing on your breathing, among them. All of these things can help not only with slowing down your jittery mind, but also to make you a better parent. It’s like sending your brain to the gym, only the result is not tiredness but rejuvenation. If you can’t get into the whole yoga thing, maybe you can just try out some Lego. You just have to wait until September 1. RELATED How Mindfulness Meditation Can Make You A Better Parent Trudeau's COVID-19 Address To Kids, But Make It LEGO Can Reading Actually Improve Your Mental Health?
