Canada’s Easter Gift to France

Today, 9 April, (it's still 9 April when I post this in Eastern Canada even though it is already 10 April in Europe) is the 103rd anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge which was fought from 9 to 12 April, in 1917. Vimy Ridge dominates the Douai plain in North-Eastern France. The Germans had … Continue reading Canada’s Easter Gift to France

Trudeau & Guilbeault plan to give Trump a stick with which to beat Canada

So, I see that Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault has, once again, promised, despite denials in February, that he will introduce legislation that will aim to regulate the news media and define "trusted sources." This worries Professor Michael Geist who holds the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law at the University of Ottawa’s … Continue reading Trudeau & Guilbeault plan to give Trump a stick with which to beat Canada

Failing the test

The Gatestone Institute is a strongly conservative, pro-Zionist and some say anti-Muslim, American think tank founded by Nina Rosenwald and headed, for a time, by John Bolton.

Now, I see that last September, France and Germany formed just such a group: … Continue reading The Alliance for Multilateralism (AKA the committee to save the world)

And it’s …

... Boris Johnson by a good, solid margin, according to the very early returns and exit polls. Prime Minister Johnson appears to have the solid majority (forecast to be 86 seats more than the combined opposition)* that he needs to make the Brexit happen. It's not a landslide but it is, it seems to me, … Continue reading And it’s …

Misorganization

There is a very, very useful article in iPolitics that I, for one, will keep for reference because it shows just how disorganized the Trudeau regime is. When I mentioned, a couple of days ago, the large number of obviously "third-tier" cabinet posts I was guessing that these were really just "associate ministers" or even … Continue reading Misorganization

The Trump Effect (4)

I see that Presidents Trump and Macron will meet, ahead of the 3-4 December top-level NATO Summit ~ when heads of government, including Prime Minister Trudeau, meet ~ in London. As I have discussed, a few days back, President Macron has described NATO as being "brain dead" and the implication is that it is so … Continue reading The Trump Effect (4)
