It boggles the mind

Despite my remarks, yesterday, or, at least as I warned in the last sentence, this is a highly partisan post, it's a bit of a rant, actually, because I see in an article by Mike Blanchfield of the Canadian Press, published on National Newswatch that Canada's man-child, trust-fund-kid, limousine-liberal prime minister, Justin Trudeau indirectly compares … Continue reading It boggles the mind

What’s a Trillion?

There is a rather embarrassing (for Liberal partisans) video floating around the Internet. It shows Finance Minister Bill Morneau doing his very best to avoid answering some fairly simple and straight forward questions put to him in the House of Commons, during a session of the Special Committee on the COVID-19 Pandemic, by Conservative pit … Continue reading What’s a Trillion?

Saving the Canadian media

Daniel Bernhard, Executive Director of the lobby group Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, writing in The Star, says that "By some industry estimates, many of our major media outlets will fail within weeks. Starved of advertising revenues for years, the COVID-19 pandemic will deliver the final blow, especially for newspapers.

Well, now, according … Continue reading Something we finally do know

It’s time to end this rubbish

What rubbish, you might ask? This rubbish: I think it has been well established that Andrew Scheer is a deeply conservative Christian who, unlike Justin Trudeau, actually believes what his bible says. There are millions of people in Canada who are very much like Andrew Scheer: they are Buddhists, Christians, Daoists, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and … Continue reading It’s time to end this rubbish
