Long term storage

About three months ago I asked if we wanted long term care for all of our elderly or just long term long term storage for those not really closely related to us. The continual shocking news from long term care homes here in Ontario and elsewhere suggests that, years ago, I suppose, we opted for …

It is time (6)

A couple of days ago I said that “I believe that five priorities in any policy area is about all that any government, even the best one, can manage,” and I guess that applies to me and my unsolicited advice to the Conservative Party, too. I have over the past few days said that it …

Good advice

While I am 100% certain that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will not read it, here is some excellent advice, offered yesterday evening, on social media, by Conservative foreign affairs critic Michael Chong: He said (I have reformatted his posts for ease of reading), addressing Prime Minister Trudeau, directly: Find a way for the KXL project …

Grasping at straws

Campbell Clark, writing in the Globe and Mail, is, I think, quite right when he says that “The Keystone XL pipeline project is dead. Right up to Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was saying he’d continue to make the case for it, but that was whistling past the graveyard. Now it’s a question of picking …

It is time (4)

I’m going to the bottom of the list I posted a few days ago to deal with “Foreign and defence policy and the compelling need ~ see What Canada needs from a couple of day ago ~ to face a dangerous world with confidence, including, especially how to deal with China, Iran, North Korea and Russia, but …

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 deep …

It is time (2)

Yesterday, I said that despite his many and manifest failures as a leader and as a person, Canadians remain likely to vote for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party because: They are, broadly and generally, satisfied with the way he has tried to help Canadians through the COVID-19 pandemic ~ mainly by by spending lots …

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 fully …

It is horrible …

Maureen Ambersley, 57, a Registered Practical Nurse who died recently … to use the tragedy of a death to make a point, but this CTV News story angered me. Four women, all women of colour, too, from just one union, have died as a result of contracting COVID-19, almost certainly while all four were employed …

Desperation

“It will surprise no one,” the Globe and Mail’s John Ibbitson wrote in that newspaper, “if investigations into the attack on the Capitol Building last Wednesday conclude the Proud Boys were among the main culprits.” And it will surprise even fewer (if that’s even possible) that the Liberal Party will try to use whatever tool …
