An opportunity

So, I saw two things: First, on my own social media feed, in response to my contention that a (reported) majority of Canadians is wrong and Canada must become “bigger and better” in the 21st century by adapting our immigration regime to accepting many more immigrants, year-after-year and decade-after-decade, there was this: That’s arrant nonsenseContinue reading “An opportunity”

It is time (3)

A couple of days ago I said, “I want the Conservative Party to tell us how they plan to take Canada forward, to make Canada bigger and better.“ We’re already a big country, geographically, the 2nd largest landmass in the world and we have the world’s longest coastline with seaports on three oceans and deepContinue reading “It is time (3)”

It is time

Many years ago an author/playwright put these words into the mouth of one of his characters: “I know what you’re against .. [but] … What are you for?” It remains a pertinent question today, for many, many people all around the world. Here in Canada it appears, to me, that Erin O’Tool and his Conservatives are fullyContinue reading “It is time”

Conservatives and the Canadian precariat

A coupe of years ago I wrote about “Populism and the Canadian ‘Precariat’” and I suggested, quoting others, that “social chasms defined by the concentration of wealth at the top of society and, for everyone else, by economic pessimism and stagnation; by a comfortable feeling on one end of the societal teeter-totter, and a fear on the otherContinue reading “Conservatives and the Canadian precariat”

Essential?

So, “we’re all in this together,” are we? Isn’t that what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Public Safety Minister Bill Blair … … have been saying for six months? Then why do I see, in a CBC News report, that “The American CEO of Costco was granted a special exemption from Canada’s mandatory 14-day COVID-19 quarantineContinue reading “Essential?”

I’m no expert, but …

Following on from my post of a few hours ago … Let me repeat the first three words, in the title, with emphasis: I’m no expert. I know nothing about viruses and epidemiology and so on … I do know a bit about radios and, especially, about the radio frequency spectrum, but those are notContinue reading “I’m no expert, but …”

Liberals knew; Liberals lied; Canadians died

John Paul Tasker reported, for CBC News, a couple of months ago, that “A little-known medical unit within Canadian Forces Intelligence Command briefed Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan about the COVID-19 crisis on January 17, 2020, the government confirmed in a document presented to Parliament … [and] … The briefing from the medical intelligence (MEDINT) unitContinue reading “Liberals knew; Liberals lied; Canadians died”

Arrant nonsense

They’re back! The same über-progressive, China appeasing, knee-jerk anti-American members of the Laurentian Elites who advised Prime Minister Trudeau to drop the extradition case against Meng Wanzhou are back with another demand: Canada, ⇐ Allan Rock and Lloyd Axworthy ⇒ say, in an opinion piece in the Globe and Mail, must tear up the SafeContinue reading “Arrant nonsense”
