Nigel Wright, who was Chief of Staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper (and who resigned when it was discovered that he used his own money to repay some of Senator Mike Duffy’s misappropriated expenses) and is now the (London based) Senior Managing Director of the multi-billion dollar Onex Corporation, says, in a piece published by…… Continue reading CANZUK, again.
““There is no way you can look at the global landscape and see [anything] other than increased indicators of danger and threats … [but] … The level of real and actual danger will depend on how it is that nations around the world hold China to account, and the same can be said for Russia.””…… Continue reading What Canada needs
So, it appears, that just a week before the “no deal Brexit” deadline, the European Union and the United Kingdom have reached a deal. I’ll await the fine print, but, for the moment: well done to both. We, in North America want friendly, prosperous trading partners “across he pond.”
A few days ago I said that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had gotten things wrong, again, regarding India. Now I see, in an article in the South China Morning Post, that the British Prime Minister has gotten things right. The article says that “British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has invited India, South Korea and Australia…… Continue reading Getting it right
I said, almost two years ago, that leaders should be considering some sort of a Committee to Save the World.

So, Britsh Prime Minister Boris Johnson is in the Intensive Care Unit as he battles the COVID-19 infection. I’m sure all people of goodwill, no matter what their political leanings, will all wish him well. His Foreign Secretary and unofficial deputy Dominic Raab has assumed day-to-day control of the British government. Mr Raab, a lawyer,…… Continue reading Wishing him well
