Macron won the election in France which means the EU leaders breathe a sigh of relief and the whole system hobbles along……Le Pen won’t just go away though and neither will the trends that led to her rise….the next few years should be interesting to say the least…..will fear, instability and a broken system lead to her further rise or will real change herald a breakthrough for the masses? For now the globalists rejoice at a failed uprising and challenge to the status quo….

US has recently banned triclosan but Canada drops the ball– ‘The absence of a ban here means Canada could become a dumping ground for products containing triclosan once the U.S. measures take effect’ . Results of the assessment indicate that triclosan can adversely affect aquatic organisms, even at very low concentrations. “As a result of its continuous releases from wastewater treatment systems to water courses, triclosan may cause harm to freshwater organisms.” Despite this government website goes on to state-“However, the Government of Canada has concluded that triclosan is not harmful to human health at current levels of exposure.”          A consultation period is open for submission until January 25th…
