Virtual reality & machine intelligence shown at the recent Montreal high technology trade show put on by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
This video depicts some of the exhibits and advanced technology that the recent trade show at the Palais des Congress in Montreal. It follows and compliments my earlier video from last post, the one with the performing robots, hope you like it.
The machine follies were in progress when I arrived at the Advanced Manufacturing Canada (Intelligent Machines) trade
show put on by the SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) at the Palais des Congress in downtown Montreal last Thursday, November 19, 2015.
As things turned out this rather small event concentrated primarily on exhibitors and companies involved with robotics and 3D printing. There was also some exhibitors providing financial services, government help of all sorts for small businesses and startups, custom three D design software companies, laser cutting and etching-marking, and schools providing high-tech courses related to robotics, 3D printing and design.
Although this was a small show it nevertheless had a healthy contingent of well-known big high-tech companies showing
their wares. I was interested in 3D printing and certainly learned a lot about the advances and limits of this expanding technology from
several exhibitors’ engineering staff involved in this show.
As my tiny video shows, robots are into much of what is manufactured today and they are getting more and more intelligent. Advances in micro-electronics and custom software has fuelled greater advances in robots and their AI (artificial intelligence) capabilities
There were many more robots showing off however, I only digitally taped this bit for this blog post hope you enjoy it.
Canadian because it’s 2015 is Justin Trudeau’s witty response in heated discussion with then PM Stephen Harper during a pre-election debate.
Well actually the response sentence was “a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian..” and the “2015” was another quip on another hot topic. That “2015” remark hailed by the media as the example of how intelligent Justin is and how it quickly put down Harper, something like old man Trudeau’s specials to Conservative leaders Stanfield and Clark.
The big question being asked today is if Paris (terror carnage) happens to Canada after we accept 25,000 not totally vetted Syrian ‘refugees’ will our wonderful starry-eyed Prime Minister say “A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian” as part of his apology hmm..I don’t think that would wash.
Apparently, Justin already gave his cabinet ministers their “mandate letters” marching orders however, contrary to what his voters believe his letters are full of cautious legalese, urging his ministers to “consult” and “develop plans” and “establish committees” before doing much of anything. This is typical, standard, Liberal phraseology or code talk his predecessors including his daddy used because it allows plenty of room for corruption to start..oh, wait that’s already started.
One mandate letter, in the pledge to amend Conservatives’ C-51 security bill, instructs Ralph Goodale, public safety minister, to “introduce new legislation that strengthens accountability with respect to national security and better balances collective security with rights and freedoms.” Now that certainly is clear enough and transparent instruction that anybody can understand hmm?
Then there is that tiny matter about those Syrian ‘immigrants, or is that ‘refugees’ and immigration minister John McCallum’s new mandate informs him the “Cabinet” commits to ‘quick and substantial help’ for refugees but gives few details. We all remember that this is the new Liberal government not those evil Conservatives and their secrecy however, can we claim that no secrecy exists here hmm?
Also, one leading immigration lawyer, Lee Cohen, says ‘this is not the time to dither’ on these refugees, and Syrian refugees need to live in cities, not lodges A.S.A.P heck, folks there is absolutely no pressure being exerted here, just saying!
Justin..oops, “Cabinet” also directs him to fully restore refugee health care, the cancellation of which had been a rallying point for refugee advocates. This mandate letter also tells him to establish an “expert human rights panel”, a favorite liberal/leftist mechanism that always fills a multitude of pockets full from public trough.
McCallum is also instructed to follow-up on promise to boost import of their parents and grandparents however, more funding is not mentioned for processing the increased number of applications, or to pay health-care expenses. Then again, we all know who will take care of that hmm.
Another, leading media endorsed, savvy immigration ‘expert’ Showler suggests that a mere $100 million budgeted for resettlement is not enough perhaps, our generous taxpayers can give $500 millions instead heck, that would be better. Interesting that although the Liberals promised to inject $100 million this minor detail is not mentioned in McCallum’s letter.
Then again, the Liberals are staffing up Kathleen Wynne’s backroom shysters both levels of Liberal government use the same playbook therefore, it is not surprising.
Kathleen Wynne’s gang, Liberal-connected consultants and advertising agencies, sponged $2.1-million in taxpayers’ money over the past two years.
For example, polling and market research firm, Gandalf Group run by David Herle, Ms. Wynne’s chief strategist in the 2014 election campaign and who also works for Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau gobbled up received $1,102,529.
What’s in store for the next four years for Canadians is a smiling, waving, ‘wise cracking’, occupant of 24 Sussex..oops, not yet heck, that’s another $10 millions??? for the taxpayers to pay.
Justin will continue with selfies and his handler metered media darling appearances and interviews telling his followers-voters what they want to hear, in their simple minds he can do no wrong. Interesting, this seems to mirror Barack Hussein Obama’s modus operandi.
Following Liberal tradition, Trudeau offered France ‘as much assistance as possible’ meaning he is offering to bring their terrorists here, apologize to them and offer them compensation for “hurt feelings”.
The important Trudeau government secret revealed today by Pigathia Lee*, new Liberal minister without portfolio and women’s other issues, is you can put lipstick on this pig and it’s still a pig.
This reinforces what most Canadians already know a month after the October 19, 2015 federal elections regarding Justin Trudeau’s election promises.
The corrupt practices of past Liberal regimes are happening again although it is till too early to say anything about it because after all, Justin Trudeau is the media’s darling and he can’t possibly do anything wrong even if it is in your face obvious. Then again, he is on his political ‘honeymoon’ having been freshly thrusted into absolute power.
As expected Bill Morneau, Trudeau’s minister of finance, has discovered based on the report from the Parliamentary Budget Office(PBO) that the previous Conservative government’s surplus of $$1.2 Billion was not factual. The government now has to somehow make up for this shortfall, Canadian taxpayers are now expected to make up this shortfall by being taxed even more than promised.
This comes on top of the cancelling or modification of a family tax relief and a generous saving plan the previous government put in place for Canadians before being voted out.
Already, liberal PM Trudeau has travelled across to Europe at taxpayers’ dime to attend an ‘important’ economic conference and so has his new minister of the environment, Catherine McKenna for one on the environmental greenhouse gases reduction.
Seems that she will adopt the Conservatives’ ‘national target’ level as the ‘benchmark’ regarding cutting greenhouse gas emissions Canadians expect more taxing to come soon. Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberal government sets the pattern for Justin regarding how far to go sponging the taxpayers.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch..err, back in Montreal, Liberal mayor Denis Coderre, has flushed over eight billion liters of the city’s
raw sewage into the Saint Lawrence river today after getting the blessing from Ms McKenna. She however, put her foot down setting conditions for this dumping, the city must carefully monitor the dumping, taking water samples, and report back if God forbid, something should go wrong.
Yes, folks you’re in good hands with the Liberals because they don’t do things in secret like those other guys..well not yet heh, heh, heh!

Remember November 11 because you can, your freedom to do so assured through the bravery of our Canadian veterans. They sacrificed their own lives to give you this privilege.
Those who died went willingly into battle so Canada remained a ‘free’ country today, others, the silent casualties of war, lingered on suffering for it in veterans hospitals or even at home.
“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” – John Diefenbaker, former Conservative PM, WWI veteran, distinguished QC lawyer, and champion of the Canadian Bill of Rights.
Let us remember them and not just on November 11 but always for their heroism those many years ago. Also remember our new veterans who sacrificed in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Cyprus, and the Golan Heights as peacekeepers.
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them…
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.” – Robert Laurence Binyon
The public trough stampede was in full progress as Trudeau Liberals worked hard shoving each other aside hoping to get the best spot to feed.
The few grizzled old veterans, having been there before, already staked out their best place at the trough heck, they were happy as pigs in…to get another opportunity to get their fill, be part of the promised change.
Sounds of joy filled the air as each got their chance to experience it, some for the first time. Fortunately, there was plenty to be had because the Conservatives had left it full having achieved a balanced budget with a modest surplus before their defeat.
Now that the Trudeauites had arrived in Ottawa, they felt real smug knowing that the Canadian public trough was theirs for at least four years. That however, seemed a long time before they would have to battle again to keep the privilege. Then again, by then the trough might be empty if they worked real hard at it leaving nothing for their successors..hmm, now that’s a great idea!
Ho-ho-ho, Santa Justin arrives tomorrow, so you better watch out, be ready to cry, better not shout, I’m telling you why..Justin Trudeau, Liberal Santa Claus is coming to Ottawa town!
Alas! How dreary the world would be if there was no Liberal Santa Claus for you and me!
There would be no childlike faith and little of advertised hope, your hope, and their hard work scamming you, saying your life will change, be better, when you put your X for Liberals down!
Soon Santa’s new, busy elves carefully coached by grizzled old Liberal veterans, will get the machinery operating just like the last time ending with same results. We will revisit the same old stories with a few new ones added to ensure ‘fairness’ and diversity.
There will be scandals and new news of how tax money simply vanished, massive overspending and Liberal favoritism, woman’s body issues like abortion and abuses, kindness of snuffing (euthanasia) the old and infirm or crippled to save money, new ‘security’ initiatives related to the new 25, 000 ‘immigrants’ and the private ownership of firearms.
Meanwhile, there will be an upswing of popularity related to Liberal media darlings particularly Justin Trudeau heck, he just will not be able to do anything wrong because of his nice hair.
Media talking heads will trip over each other to get the best pictures and videos of the our new leader and interviews will be frequent to get his infallible opinions on anything.
Yes, folks salvation arrives tomorrow because the Conservative ‘tyrant’, Stephen Harper, is deposed. Total freedom for Liberal adscammers, miscellaneous swindlers, drug pushers, people smugglers, and crooked immigration lawyers has been restored, hallelujah!
No candy just cash please, were Liberals cried the little trick or treaters at your front door on Halloween night, your worst nightmare has begun!
It was the a bunch of local kids in the neighborhood, faces everybody already was familiar with and their tricks however, there was that new kid on the block.
Now what was his name Jim..Jester..Junior..Jack ..James..nope hmmm..oh yeah, Justin good ole Trudeau’s kid, hear he’s a good kid just that he’s gotten mixed up that bad bunch, them Adscamers and that Wynne girl.
