Keeping an eye on Communist, Totalitarian China, and its influence both globally, and we as Canadians. I have come to the opinion that we are rarely privy to truth regarding the real goal, the agenda of Red China, and it's implications for Canada [and North America as a whole]. No more can we rely on our media as more and more information on China is actively being swept under the carpet - not for consumption.

Australian Taxation Office’s new building in Box Hill, Melbourne features squat toilets, Herald Sun reports.
Squat toilets are commonly found in parts of Indian subcontinent, Asia and Europe. Many offices in Australia carry visual signs on the use of western toilets for employees who may not be familiar with the western style toilets.
According to ATO’s acting chief finance officer Justin Untersteiner more than 20% of ATO employees come from a non-English speaking background.
“We are committed to maintaining an inclusive workplace that engages, informs and supports all our employees, whatever their background,” he told Herald Sun.
“This commitment includes building designs with a range of facilities that cater for the different needs of our employees.”
Keeping this in mind, Mr Untersteiner said the ATO was embracing diversity by providing a safe, inclusive and accessible workplace.
Australian Multicultural Foundation's Executive Director Hass Dellal, who is also an OAM recipient and SBS chairman, welcomed the move and said, “the squat style of toileting was becoming more popular because of its health benefits.”
He expected more bathrooms in the future to accommodate both styles, which would be a “positive thing”.
