Premier Reacts to Terrorist Attacks in Paris

Friday, November 13, 2015 @ 5:18 PM

Prince George, B.C. – Premier Christy Clark has reacted to today’s terrorist attacks in Paris where multiple reports suggest over 100 people have been killed:

“Like all Canadians, I was shocked and sickened by the news from Paris.

“For centuries, France has been a beacon of light and example for the
world, and remains one of our closest friends and allies. Tonight, all
Canadians and British Columbians stand with them, both in grief for those
who were killed, but also in resolve. Those who commit such acts of
violence want to change us, and our shared values. They will fail.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and with
security personnel who put their lives at risk to keep others safe.

Vive la France.”


” “For centuries, France has been a beacon of light and example for the
world, and remains one of our closest friends and allies.”
Maybe Christy should read up on Frances history as nazi collaborators before commenting.

I love it when the politicians speak out with these recycled quotes, and they have no clue of history. French revolution ring a bell Christy?

Christy failed history in high school. She then went on to become a barmaid, give her some slack.

The french revolution changed the world. The ideas of freedom and democracy, despite being hijacked by Robespierre and later Napoleon formed a basis for freedom and liberty. The statue of Liberty was a gift to the US. As for French conspirators how about Canadian Conspirators, like Pierre Elliot Trudeau? More importantly like the Maginot line this threat from ISIS needs to be rethunk, and we need to retool and and remove this scourge on humanity. The damage in Paris is Peanuts compared to what these cruel people do on the ground in Syria and Iraq. Shia moslems are rounded up and decapitated to much fanfare. We need to pound them from every angle and as a group of 60 nations determined to rid the world of this evil.

There was quite a difference between the ‘actual’ objectives of the American Revolution and that of the French one a few years later. “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” is not quite the same as “liberty, equality, fraternity.” You can have, and certainly should have, ‘equality’ before the law for all citizens regardless of their station in life. And also an equality of opportunity to the full extent that’s possible. But to interpret that word ‘equality’ beyond those limited meanings, and then base policies on those other interpretations, is a recipe for certain disaster. People, as a moment’s consideration should confirm, are no way in the natural scheme of things ‘equal’. They are, each individual one of us, ‘different’. And a good thing , too. For the original meaning of the word ‘equality’ is NO quality. And what a bland, boring existence we’d have if anyone tried, as several regimes have tried, and some seemingly still are, to institute that.
