Just do it

A couple of days ago I suggested that "If the Trudeau regime has half the brains the gods gave to green peppers they will cede, at a below-market value price, 51% of the Trans Mountain Pipeline to a consortium of Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan First Nations and then use every legal means available to push that … Continue reading Just do it

The right way

I see in an article by Andy Blatchford of the Canadian Press, published in the Globe and Mail, that "Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says there’s a “compelling case” to be made for his province to exit the half-century-old Canada Pension Plan – an idea sure to face increasing scrutiny over the coming months ...

Doing things right

There is a very interesting article in the Globe and Mail about a proposed new housing development in Vancouver.

Mark Hemingway, who is an editor at The Federalist, explains in … Continue reading Trumpians in Canada

What the CPC didn’t do

Back in the summer of 2016, I said (speaking as a Conservative partisan) that: "Our task in 2019 is far less daunting than the one the Liberals faced in 2013, 14 and 15. We need to convince ‘only’ about 1,000,000 voters to switch from Liberal to Conservative. Some of them, actually many of them, have voted for us in … Continue reading What the CPC didn’t do

The Trudeau Effect?

So, it's the day after the re-election of Justin Trudeau's Liberals and I see this on CTV News:  The story says that: "Dozens of Husky Energy workers streamed out of the company’s downtown Calgary location Tuesday morning carrying envelopes and paperwork signalling they’ve been laid off ...
