University of Ottawa student union bans yoga class. What's next, dancing???

The University of Ottawa student union (SFUO) is facing a backlash for its politically correct ban on yoga.

The free yoga class, which has been offered for years, was cancelled due to ‘cultural appropriation’.

That’s the adoption of an element of one’s culture, into another’s, that in some way diminishes the originating culture.

“Yoga has been under a lot of controversy lately due to how it is being practiced and what cultures they are being taken from” (which are often sacred spiritual practices), says the school.

The instructor said it’s about stretching, nothing spiritual, and offered to change the name of the class. Didn’t matter.

 “This is about a culture-wide problem of accommodation gone awry,” she said.

The reason this story is generating interest, the yogi says is, “people are pushed to a point that this-accommodating whining people for no good reason- has just gone too far.”

When I asked the instructor how many complaints they had regarding the class she said, one.

This is why religion has no place in the laws and procedures of the land, and modern governments are secular.

It can be interpreted in so many different ways, that even yoga is banned.

What’s next? Dancing?

Trudeau finally admits, he's just not ready, for 25,000 refugees by years end

The federal government has relaxed the timeline in its mad dash to process 25,000 refugees before the end of the year.

With the reduction Canadians will welcome 10,000 refugees by the year end, the rest coming by the end of February 2016.

The obvious reason for the change of heart?

Oddly enough, we’re simply not ready!

This from a security and humanitarian perspective.

There was never any reason for the Trudeau self-imposed deadline, other than a hasty promise made during the heat of an election campaign.

Thank goodness he put the country ahead of his character challenge.

I’m sure both sides will put their spin on his refugee deadline extension, but there is no need to do so when someone does the right thing.

Let’s give him credit for the maturity.

Lesson learned here for our new PM Trudeau?

Don’t over sell something, the majority of Canadians know you can’t deliver, especially when it’s not in the best interest of the country.

The election is over, you have a majority, just tell it like it is…..

If no security concerns, why no single male refugees allowed???

If there are no security concerns over the push to rush 25,000 refugees into Canada before Christmas, why are single men not part of the equation?
As the Liberal government reveals the details needed to in keep its election campaign promise, many are questioning this priority, over doing the job thoroughly and securely.
If single young males are not invited, clearly there is a security concern.
Why? Because most terrorists seem to be young single males therefore women, children and families will be given priority.
But what constitutes a family? What about a disenfranchised teenage male who comes in with a family?
We have certainly heard from family of ISIS members pleading for their siblings to do the right thing and surrender.
It’s plainly obvious the government is questioning the security of its own refugee timeline, (and thank goodness).
Most Canadians are compassionate and want to help.
However if Trudeau is that concerned about security that they are not accepting single males, isn’t that more reason to not rush the process, and instead do what’s in the best interest of all Canadians?
