Climate change extremism is leading the world to disaster

Oil is not evil: fossil fuels are responsible for making our lives longer and better

Climate change extremism is leading the world to disasterSometimes, the significance of a cataclysmic event is not immediately apparent. The bombing of Pearl Harbour was an event that shocked the world. Many realized – even as it was happening – that it would bring America into a war it didn’t want to be in. But few predicted what would follow. The end of…

We have nothing to be ashamed of on Canada Day

We should be proud of our country, warts and all

We have nothing to be ashamed of on Canada DaySome Canada Day organizers have been spooked by last summer’s hysteria over 215 Indigenous children murdered and secretly buried at Kamloops. News of the alleged murders led to churches being set on fire, statues being toppled, and a panicked Prime Minister lowering Canadian flags across the country. In many places, Canada Day celebrations were called…

Preston Manning brings clarity to our lockdown misery

Most of the world has managed to move on past these divisive – and just plain dumb – policies

Preston Manning brings clarity to our lockdown miseryPreston Manning already occupies a place of honour in our history books as the father of modern conservatism. His accomplishments are too numerous to recount in this short article, and his articles, essays and books are many. With his many accomplishments and at his stage in life, one would think Preston would choose an easier…

Trudeau more Bozo the Clown than dictator

How did we end up with such a lightweight?

Trudeau more Bozo the Clown than dictatorJust the week before, when he invoked the Emergencies Act to deal with what was essentially a local police matter, Justin Trudeau was being compared to brutal dictators like Xi Jinping. But now, after effectively saying “Just fooling” and revoking the same legislation he said was absolutely necessary to save the country from the perils…

Trudeau has irreparably damaged our country

“Canada will always be there to defend the right to peaceful protest” – Justin Trudeau, in a reference to protests in India

Trudeau has irreparably damaged our countryAsked why he supported some protests but was determined to crush the trucker convoy, Justin Trudeau answered without hesitation: He supported – and even participated in – protests he agreed with, but he did not support – and vowed to crush – those with “unacceptable views,” that is, views he disagrees with. We are now…

Canada is becoming an authoritarian state

We are venturing into a new authoritarian version of what used to be a wonderful country

Canada is becoming an authoritarian stateThe discussions held by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Premiers leading up to the imposition of The Emergencies Act will not be made public, but the results are obvious: All Premiers except one, Ontario Premier Doug Ford, told Trudeau not to do it. I’m sure that they all urged the Prime Minister to take…

Note to Americans: Education is not genocide

The claims of thousands of “missing children” are false

Note to Americans: Education is not genocideThings have taken a strange turn in Canada on the genocide front. Genocide? Canada? Those are words that you would not normally see together. Words like “polite” or “peaceful” might come to mind. But “genocide,” not so much. In fact, the picture of placid Canadians as practitioners of genocide is downright disturbing. But that is…

We’ve let irrational COVID-19 fear paralyze society

Even many vaccinated people continue to live in fear. It’s bizarre

We’ve let irrational COVID-19 fear paralyze societyGreat events in history usually have one picture that manages to capture their essence. The iconic photo of the American troops planting the flag on Iwo Jima does it for the Second World War, and the disturbing picture of the naked little girl running for her life from napalm perfectly captures the horror of the…

Let’s leave residential school tragedies in the past

The dead should be appropriately honoured. But some opportunists will exploit these dead children for financial and political gain

Let’s leave residential school tragedies in the pastThe discovery of human remains at a former residential school site has set off a firestorm that has already resulted in demands for another national inquiry and massively expensive forensic and excavation projects. But maybe we should pause and ask some questions. The Kamloops Indian Residential School operated as a residential school from 1890 to…

Why vaccination passports are a dangerous idea – Part 2

If someone decides against vaccination, their decision should be respected

Why vaccination passports are a dangerous idea – Part 2Vaccination passports are being touted as the answer to getting our travel industry and other businesses up and running again after the COVID-19 pandemic. You would simply produce their papers and airline tickets could be purchased, access gained to restaurants, hockey games, etc. Why would anyone object to such a sensible proposal? Because the idea…
