The Balkanization of Canada and Your Neighbourhood

The Balkanization of Canada

Yes, the Balkanization of Canada. To most Canadians Balkanization is a strange word  and  foreign concept isn't it? Something that belongs somewhere else,  in old Europe where countries fester restlessly, fall apart on a moments notice,  monarchies and old castles collect  dust, and ghosts fight battles of the past. Still —in Canada?— Unbelievable, is it not?

Regardless, the Balkanization of Canada is the subject at hand,  and you can believe it exists and is developing effectively  in Canada; the very opposite of warm and fuzzy  utopian multiculturalism, politically-correct  tolerance and 'inclusiveness'.

The demise of  Canadian sanitized, idealized, —and mostly  unrealized Liberal 'multiculturalism' is becoming ever more likely. Was genuine multiculturalism ever properly achieved in Canada?   Let's look at that. What about the the failure to admit the  reality of 'undeclared special neighbourhoods'  with concentrations of ethnic peoples and  unspoken cultural  truths,  foreign 'Canadians'  with far more than six degrees of separation?  Just down the street.  In a province next door, or that big city, where  do you,  inexplicably,   feel like a foreigner?  Where can you walk safely at night?    Which neighbourhoods do you feel uncomfortable passing through, visiting or walking into even in broad daylight?  If so, why not?

Balkanization may be defined as the  fragmentation or division of a geographical area, a country or  geopolitical  entity — into smaller,  differentially-defined   geopolitical units.  Territorial areas of influence, or on a small scale,  neighbourhoods.   Fragmentation at some point —and not always for the better.  Resulting  geopolitical units are not necessarily hostile, but let us face reality, decades of concentration of ethnicity,  separation with purpose or cause, whether it be cultural, language, economics or tribal ethnicity, has predictable consequences. Any subsequent 'relationship' with other 'hoods'   may  become  progressively less tolerant and even totally hostile rather than peaceful.

If unresolved differences, arrogance and  anger dominates any special group separated within a state, or country,  the outcome of Balkanization is predictable.    Balkanization of a country or the expansion of an ethnic sphere of influence the size of a small neighbourhood can be negative or even hostile.

Balkanization socially  may be  caused by language, economics,  political ideology.  A  penchant for patriarchal control, superiority and  'ethnic cleansing".  Intolerance of others.  Misplaced  loyalty to foreign lands left far behind long ago, or last week. Unwanted  outside political influence. Ignorance, arrogance, and racial discrimination, religious ideology, cult worship,  tribal pride.  Socially-contrived excuses created to justify domination, aggression, and street warfare.  Historical differences bitterly clung to by tribal  elders, endlessly  passed on to later generations, their only raison d'etre.   Delusional visions of power and grandeur, failed political  institutions.   Revolutions precipitated by  abuse of power, corruption,  lunacy of dictatorial leaders, a change of puppet governments, and/or the wealth and influence of rich globalist elite.  Huge, dangerous egos, grand personal agendas, insanity, revenge, drama...ad nauseum. Justification is endless.  Get the idea yet?

The Balkanization of Canada is not only likely, it may  be Coming to your neighbourhood. Why?

Multiculturalism as practiced in Canada already contains failed elements and Balkanization, provincial 'differences',  'distinct societies',   enclaves of special racial interests are common.  Neighbourhoods dedicated to tongues other than 'Canadian, eh?  Areas where English is the 'foreign language'   It is 2nd nature. They're different.    Cast  a skewed eye upon 'them'.  Suspect the unknown, the disliked, point at the  standoffish,  the noisy, weird,  and misunderstood.    Is your city or even your neighbourhood —already displaying areas  sharply-defined  by ethnicity, economic disparity, prejudice, culture, and anger with pretentious, assumed foreign authority? Of course it is.  "Multiculturalism is a 'melting pot' with glass partitions so  politically-correct delusional are not 'offended'.

Feel Free to Admit Reality.

Please feel free to admit  reality. Admit the existence of "low income housing developments ghettoized,  concentrating the poor in slums on the wrong side of the tracks.  Blacks in  black neighbourhoods. Latinos in their own.  Somalians in theirs. Jamaicans and Haitians in theirs.   Illegals walking in and demanding political power.   Enclaves of Europeans, Asians,  and other 'special groups'.   Each includes 'appropriate'  ethnically-controlled zones for profitable  organized crime.  Do tell.

 

The Reality

Chinatown in Vancouver is  full of Chinese (imagine that)   and East Indian vegetable markets   flow haphazardly  onto sidewalks like in India, symptoms of the  'inclusion of quirks from foreign lands,  on and on. Dead chickens and lambs hang in shop windows.  See areas dictated by foreign street signage. There has been no shortage of examples —since the 'proper'  beginning of Canada 150 years ago. First Nations reservations are almost exclusive, impoverished remnants of a failed genocide by white invaders, French and English.    Quebecois enclaves and villages, Little Italy, Little Greece, Little Somalia, little Haiti,   Africville in Nova Scotia—ALL  remain symptoms of,  if not substantial examples of   Balkanization, if only on a small scale.  Admission of failure to integrate into one  truly multicultural country—would be closer to truth.

Should Sovereign Nations Now Open their Borders and "Conform" to the Demands of Immigrants?

The fact is, non-English-speaking immigrants have historically migrated and settled in Canada into  segregated areas, searching for their peers and countrymen,  speaking their language exclusively,  and practicing their own traditions of their old homelands. So...can the ethnic  search for comfort —away from their  foreign homelands —now be used to further justify even further Balkanization of Canada? You decide.

Let us push that question further; should 'immigrants' be allowed to demand sea changes of the very fabric of a host nation? Most recently, this question must be asked:  Should western  host nations conform to hostile demands by Muslims —or any 'class' of newcomers,  refugees or invaders?  

We say NO. 

The Problem with Balkanization

Balkanization by nature does not tend to  remain flexible and  static, but grows, increasingly more brittle, in some cases becoming unforgiving and  violent.  Balkanization contradicts the very concept of 'liberalized  multiculturalism'.

In its simplest form, traditional 'hoods' are what we have grown to accept as 'normal' multiculturalism.    Defined 'classes and colours of citizen' have been perhaps tolerated, but below the surface,  racism is increasingly evident,  and people different are less likely to be welcomed with open arms.  Non-approved persons including the law— entering 'specialized concentrations' of ethnicity are  'intruders';  in some cases are intimidated and threatened.  In some instances, their very lives may be in danger if they enter 'no-go' zones, the biggest and most difficult challenge of Balkanization. In reality, even traditional 'hoods' contradict the homogeneous nature suggested by 'overly-praised and hyped  multiculturalism.  'No-go' zones virtually forbid tolerance of other ethnic values...imagine that.    Let's look at 'no-go' zones.

NO-GO  Zones

Most notably of recent,  and now of special concern to European and western nations, are the new NO-GO zones developing with the flood of  ever-increasingly militant Muslim "migrants''.  This antisocial aberration is increasingly being displayed in Europe and the U.K.  primarily  in areas recently  'colonized' by Muslim 'refugees' .  Such 'no-go zones' may even be illegally patrolled by self-authorized  'Sharia police'.   Areas avoided by ordinary citizens,  the country's own natural-born citizens— for reasons of personal safety.

In the latest extreme, even  police and other authority figures intimidated by the aggressive expansionist deception  of Islam foolishly  refuse to enter 'Muslim' no-go zones.  Somehow the  politically-correct and trendy flood  of  invaders from Syria, Somalia  and other Muslim nations —has been allowed to become an unwanted threat.  Dangerous, demanding, and  a challenge to the sovereignty, public safety and  the rule of law, blatant incompatibility of immigrants now  threatens law and order, and perhaps even the future existence  of  traditional nations which have suddenly forced to  deal with the  'new species' of immigrants. Why?

A New "Species of Immigrants"

A  new  "species of migrants", previously not encountered,  soon locate their own 'ethnic zones of comfort' and quickly confirm and demonstrate they have absolutely no intention of integrating into society.   Little if any respect for  host populations is displayed, whether it be in Germany, Finland, Sweden, Italy,  France, the UK,  Canada or the USA.   There is no respect for other religions, western tradition, western  rule of law, the necessity of jobs,  or practicing basic tenets of western culture. How about something as basic as  respecting the population, the courts, existing constitutions,  the rights and status  of  children and women not to be raped,  abused and mutilated, or the right to practice  ancient religions such as Buddhism  Christianity? Cultural differences. An ugly excuse.

Unlike Previous classes of Immigrants

Unlike any class of  'immigrants'  seen in earlier times and being constituents of an out-of-control invasion by expansionist Islam,  Muslims of today bear no resemblance to any  refugees or immigrants of the early 1900's. People from  Asia,  Ireland, Poland, Ukraine,  or other European countries were desperate, hungry, poor and very happy to be in Canada.

As a result, a potentially catastrophic and dangerous  social issue has developed, the destruction of western culture as we have known it— courtesy of reckless open border policies and gullible,  lax, devious, traitorous, and incredibly foolish  western politicians.

Don't believe it? Decide for yourself.  Balkanization is enabled by inept, weak  governments ruling with trendy, —and willfully gullible political  blather propagated by media  spin and  weak minds.    Sorry about that, but here at Incoming Bytes  the  truth is always acknowledged, popular or not, and  like it or not.

 Is  the total Balkanization of Canada Predictable?

Yes.  Why?   Look around. Pay attention.  Watch the arbitrary, arrogant, hate-inciting, social-baiting, manipulative, entirely inappropriate and risky  decisions being  made by your government.  Here in Canada delusional political traitors are thumbing their noses at Canadian tradition while accommodating and encouraging unrealistic expectations of bitter, unhappy, newcomers.  Newcomers who happen to 'fit' the right demographics to import to and grow  bitter, unhappy, often brutal,  and archaic cultures within Canada. The thin line is becoming brittle, with growing anger from other Canadians.  The Balkanization of Canada is clearly in progress.

Bottom Line: Balkanization gone awry... 

Should  Canada have 'No-go zones' controlled by militant First Nations peoples, rich Chinese billionaire immigrants, or the new brand of immigrants, the unhappy Islamic militant Muslims?  How about Germans, French and Mexican? Somalis?  Jamaicans?  Finns? Swedes? Mexicans?  Haitians?  Brits? Ukrainians?    You want 'no-go zones and ultra-segregation?' 

You decide.

Will Canada then, by default,  also by necessity,  have 'Muslim-Free' zones? 'Islam-free' cities?  Religion-free provinces?  Christian-free zones,  atheist- zones...Millenial zones...seniors-free zones...child-free zones... 

How far do YOU want to go with segregation, Balkanization, and apartheid?

Have fun  living in your new  Balkanized neighbourhood...

Recall The Incompetent Government

©2016 by Raymond Alexander Kukkee   [caption id="attachment_3893" align="aligncenter" width="480"]Lightning strike Lightning: Electricity in Nature Photo credit:  National Geographic[/caption]

Ontario Residents Must  Recall The Incompetent Government

 

'Recall The Incompetent  Government'must become a rallying cry for angry Ontario residents  collectively struggling with extreme,  unprecedented  and unnecessary cost increases , most notably the price of one essential service, electricity.

 

Electricity: An Essential Service

Let us suggest that In Ontario, as in most of Canada, there is no choice; electricity is an essential service.

To classify electricity to be taxed as  ordinary   consumer goods, or as a somehow 'magically-optional choice  in Canada —a cold, dark country in winter— is not only irresponsible and worse than ridiculous—but dangerous.   

Electricity should not be taxed in any way; primary production and grid distribution of electricity should remain a publicly-run service, and the cost of electricity MUST be  made affordable.

  For any  government to privatize and  tax electricity and then  subsequently and  allow corporate interests to create a "MONOPOLY" which  MINDLESSLY and arbitrarily  raises prices to inexcusable, unaffordable levels for profit is a breach of trust and  shows extremely poor judgement.  Subsequently it has encouraged and enabled multi-million-dollar executive salaries and non-affordable electricity for  all— which is not only mismanagement and bad governance, it is a failure of duty and the social obligation of government to protect the interests of taxpayers.  Their actions have been  negligent and possibly even criminal. 

   

A CRISIS

Clearly a nightmare and crisis has developed for many, many Ontario  businesses , individuals, couples, seniors, and particularly families, who must now make an impossible choice:   Feeding  children  and living in the dark, —or paying outrageous electricity bills.  Ontarians must recall the incompetent government.

Seniors have paid taxes to build Ontario infrastructure all of their working lives.   Now,  living on Canada Pension,  many in poverty,  they must pay outrageous "DELIVERY" fees," to have electricity "delivered" over the same infrastructure they not only PAID for over their lifetimes, but in some cases, actually  BUILT at their own cost—and were never compensated by Ontario Hydro.

 Ontario residents have  apparently NOT already been enraged enough to call for blood yet... worth repeating,  not enraged enough yet— to declare a revolt and scream: "recall the incompetent government !"

 

A Government-Created Disaster

Premier Kathleen Wynne's incompetent government has consistently  ignored the disaster and crisis she and her incompetent government have created.  Families struggle with unbelievable, unacceptable hydro bills.  Meantime,  the Hydro One "President" is being paid over $4 MILLION dollars annually.

  Canadians all, but Ontario residents specifically, must NOT tolerate abusive, incompetent governance;  this outrageous  status quo is unacceptable. The people must recall and replace this foolish, inept, and insensitive  government. Canadians deserve better!

Too Little, Too Late —Demand a Recall

In the recent throne speech "Premier" Kathleen Wynne has  had a revelation and "promised" to remove the "Provincial portion" of the H.S.T.,  with  a 'rebate' of 8% of your hydro bill.  It is NOT the removal of the HST.   The "rebate"  of the Provincial portion could easily  be terminated at ANY time without notice. Too little, too late.

And when is this "miracle solution" of Wynne's to occur?    You guessed it.  "Some time in the future.

Subsequently, following Wynne's 'revelation',  the devious plan does not come into effect until  January, 2017,  months from now.  This FORCES families to continue to pay outrageous , arbitrarily-calculated-and-assessed, unrealistic  "delivery fees" —and pay the HIGHEST rates for electricity anywhere in North America. 

Winter is coming. Many homes are heated with electricity —and consumers have  NO other choice. Pay your electricity bill, heat your home, or freeze to death. WHICH part of this disaster does this government find it so hard to understand? Will they face responsibility for what they have done?  No.

 

Mz. Kathleen Wynne, the incompetent, devious "Premier",  for another four months,   will continue to take ga-ga selfies with Justin , laugh behind closed doors, and penalize Ontario residents with even MORE incompetent decisions and policy.  Outrageous "delivery fees" EXCEEDING the cost of electricity itself  will remain on your hydro bill.  The "rebate" is a mere pittance.

The Liberal government will ensure the HIGHEST electricity costs in North America WILL  go higher. 

Kathleen Wynne, the "most despised, least-respected Provincial Premier in Canada " will undoubtedly continue to magically SELL "surplus" electricity to her friends in the U.S. A.  and other markets. For ONE-TENTH the cost Ontario RESIDENTS are charged.  YOU, the unfortunate taxpayer, will get to "cover the 'loss' with further price increases.'.   Oh, my...doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy?

Don't kid yourself;  there is much more to it. With INFLATED prices and "fees" in the interim, billions  more in slush-fund tax revenue will  continue to be collected 'elsewhere' . It is destined to be spent to fulfill the secret, questionable agenda of this incompetent, family-hating Premier.

 

 The Solution:

Before Ontario collapses in economic failure: WE, the residents of Ontario, believe the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario should :

RECALL  the incompetent  government; 

Remove the incredibly-incompetent   Kathleen Wynne and her  Liberals from power immediately;

Replace the incompetent Liberal group with a temporary  remedial coalition which MUST :

Resolve  this crisis by removing the H.S.T. and outrageous, arbitrarily-calculated delivery fees IMMEDIATELY by legislative order;

Reduce the price of electricity to affordable, reasonable prices;

STOP  immediately —any further privatization of this critically-necessary service.

Return  HYDRO ONE,  O.P.G.  and the primary production, pricing, control, and distribution  of electricity, an essential serviceto the Public sector.

 It is September...

And —People!!  Hello?   For the record and discussion (over COLD coffee...and a COLD breakfast.  That would be since since Kathleen and her cronies have made it necessary to shut off the  furnace, the stove, the oven, the water-heater,  the lights, baby-bottle warmers, the clothes-dryer, and the coffee-warmer—)  ...let us ask...

When  did Kathleen Wynne have a 'revelation' and "decide" her outrageous electricity  rates and costs have become  a " crisis" ?    Dare we ask?   It came as no surprise... it was when the hated, incompetent Liberals  lost a by-election...

*Update:   In other BREAKING news....the least-liked, least-trusted, least- popular provincial Premier in Canada has once again made a "decision"  *gasp....What,now,  you say, a glimmer of hope?         

Nope... another potential disaster...head for cover...

The Wynne "government" will now "reverse" or "halt" the carelessly-planned, poorly-executed "Green Energy Policy".  "Wynne will  "cancel some big wind and solar projects.  "Suddenly" it has been decided that Ontario has "lots" of energy and generating-capacity— for the next ten years. We don't need MORE  sweet, artificially-overpriced 'green energy 'projects'.

...We laugh raucously...at  the arrogance...the hypocrisy...the...blatant stupidity, the secrecy...the incompetence...the  political insanity...hold your breath...

We must bet that Ontarians will be left on the hook for THAT decision also, resulting in further outrageous price-gouging.  Is history to be repeated?

—So, let us wait in the dark and see...and keep our gloves, insulated jackets and toques on, drink cold coffee, and follow the money...from the inevitable backlash and lawsuits for 'project contract cancellation penalties'  to come...from someone's....er....friends. Stay tuned...

How about that... No comment...but of which billion-dollar gas-plant boondoggle does that remind you?    Think, people...
