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 …

For shame!

This is a plea to the Canadian media ~ not all of it I hasten to add, just the parts that want to be treated like RT and Xinhua and, in return for government funding, shamelessly spout the Liberal party line. As you, yourselves, admit, there are some serious issues in Canada, right now, today, …

Justin Trudeau Failed (2)

Grant Robertson, writing a few days ago in the Globe and Mail, said: “As a global pandemic began to take root in February, China held a series of backchannel conversations with Canada, lobbying the federal government to keep its borders open.” The main point of Mr Robertson’s report is that successive Governments, Conservative and Liberal, …

Where are we? (7)

So, I saw this in the Newcastle Herald: “There was a tinge of sadness this week as the chapter closed on one of the Australian Defence Force’s most enduring combat aircraft, the Williamtown-based classic F/A-18 Hornet … [and] … A mainstay of Williamtown RAAF Base’s exemplary No. 77 Squadron, the Hornets are being grounded as …

Real priorities

High ranking Conservative MP Michelle Rempel-Garner is getting some serious criticism for a remark that I wish she hadn’t made, but it points up a bigger problem. As generally liberal political strategist and analyst Rick Anderson says: I agree and I am as guilty as anyone of “cheap partisanship.” I still guess that we are …

@dolighan gets it

Editorial cartoonist Tim Dolighan, drawing in the Toronto Sun, seems, to me, to perfectly capture Jagmeet Singh’s dilemma: The New Democrats are NOT ready for an election. Neither, in my opinion, is the Conservative Party, but it is in far, far better shape than is the fourth party in Parliament. Thus, the Tories can bluster …

Is our Parliament without value?

Andrew Coyne, writing in the Globe and Mail, a few days ago, made a point that bears repeating: “The Liberal government,” his column is headlined, “is making a mockery of Canada’s parliamentary democracy.” That’s right: Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, making parliamentary democracy in Canada “seem stupid or without value.” And …
