Caution! Rumour!

I heard a tantalizing rumour the other day, from a normally well informed but anything but ‘official’ source ~ my source knows a few well placed Liberals but she is not directly connected to anyone in the Trudeau government. Anyway, the unverified rumour is that Justin Trudeau is getting ready to resign … … HeContinue reading “Caution! Rumour!”


In his first major speech Erin O’Toole hit some real policy high notes, saying, according to the Globe and Mail, that “his party will be tough on China: “We will trade freely with free nations and not spend our time chasing trade deals with predatory countries like Communist China.”” Good! That’s a good, clear statementContinue reading “Priorities”

A short message …

… for Peter Navarro, the Assistant to the President of the United States, Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and the National Defense Production Act policy coordinator … … I know that retired Canadian General Rick Hillier is wrong. You’re not an idiot. What you are is the person giving voice to President Donal J Trump’sContinue reading “A short message …”

And again …

So, I saw this, from a consistently reliable source, on social media: The former Liberal MP is Frank Baylis, a one-term MP for the riding of Pierrefonds-Dollard, who was, until 2015, the president of Baylis Medical, a medical technology firm. OK, no problem. MPs are allowed to retire and create companies and earn contracts …Continue reading “And again …”

Remember …

Do you remember this? That was in 2001 and Justin Trudeau, aged about 29, was teaching school in an upscale Vancouver scale. He said, after these pictures, and others were published that he couldn’t remember how many times he’s worn blackface. What about this? It was about the same time, still in BC, at theContinue reading “Remember …”

The next steps

Looking back it appears that Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole paid attention to all those military tactics lessons about the indirect approach. It was evident from the beginning that Peter MacKay was positioning himself to oust Andrew Scheer and coast to victory. Mr MacKay was, as I am, a progressive Conservative. Mr O’Toole proclaimed himselfContinue reading “The next steps”

Going green …

Now that he’s won the Conservative leadership race, one of the things that Eric O’Toole must do is enunciate a sensible environmental policy (the second bullet on my recent “wish list”). According to the Government of Canada: According to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland: “Canada’s path out of the COVID-19 pandemicContinue reading “Going green …”

Media bias

Everyone needs to watch this video clip. The “question” is nothing but paid Liberal Party propaganda. The anti-Conservative bias is so evident that if the CRTC wasn’t on the Liberal Party payroll, too, the CBC’s TV broadcasting licences would all be pulled. It is past time to get government funding out of the Canadian media.Continue reading “Media bias”

“Ladies and gentlemen …”

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Pierre Poilievre says at 1’35” of this linked video, “this is a coverup.” He says that after showing page after page after page of “released” documents that are totally blacked out … … and after explaining that the prorogation of parliament means that the opposition parties cannot, now, force the government toContinue reading ““Ladies and gentlemen …””
