The question …

… which I have been asking, on social media, for weeks … … is, finally, thanks to a Conservative Senator, out in the open: the Toronto Sun reports that “Quebec Senator Leo Housakos called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a bribe taker in the We Charity scandal, prompting a chorus of “Shame! Shame!” from other senators …

It’s time for a change

Arthur Schafer, who is a professor and the founding director of the Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of Manitoba says, in an opinion piece in the Globe and Mail, that  “Our Prime Minister denies a conflict-of-interest situation in the award of a multimillion dollar untendered contract to WE Charity. His Minister …

And then what?

So, the awful stench of corruption which surrounded the Trudeau-Kielburger scam that would have seen $900 Million ~ yes, that just a few bucks short of a Billion dollars ~ given to the Kielburgers’ charity to be used without parliament’s oversight was too much even for a bought-and-paid-for media and someone had the good sense …

Is Conservatism Dead?

John Ibitson, writing in the Globe and Mail, says what I suspect many are thinking: “The lacklustre race for leader of the Conservative Party of Canada is further evidence of the impossibility of conservatism in our time.” It’s not that conservatism is dead, he says, but, he explains, and I agree that “in this century, …

Does anyone remember? Does anyone care?

Does anyone remember when, back in February, I commented on a story by Daniel Leblanc in the Globe and Mail, in which he exposed another instance of the Liberals putting their thumb on the scale by trying to rig judicial appointments? I said, then, that Daniel Leblanc explained “the political manoeuvrings of former Minister Jim …

Do what’s right

So, I see, in a report by Sean Kirkpatrick of the Canadian Press, published in the Globe and Mail, and confirmed by others … … that “The Liberal government announced late Monday that it has agreed to change draft legislation that proposed to grant itself wide-reaching new powers to tax and spend without parliamentary approval …

What?

The Post Millennial, which is usually a fairly reliable (albeit somewhat breathless) source of hard news says, quoting Blacklock’s Reporter, which I have found to be also pretty fair and accurate, that “Justin Trudeau’s Department of Infrastructure, which is headed by the ever-controversial Catherine McKenna, cannot account for billions of taxpayer money.” The report explains …

Thumb on the scales (2)

Back about six months ago I accused the Trudeau-Freeland Liberals of having their figurative thumb on the scales of electoral politics as ministers crisscrossed the country in the pre-writ period, making spending announcements with great fanfare, when government departments and political parties are forbidden to advertise. Now I see, in an article in the Globe …

The imposter

The Globe and Mail’s Robert Fife and Daniel Leblanc seem to be, it appears, something like the “go-to guys” for Liberals who are fed up with Justin Trudeau’s lies and unethical behaviours. This time they recount the sad story of “Montreal-area MP Eva Nassif [who] says she was denied the Liberal nomination in her riding …

Leadership is the key issue

Gerald Butts strikes back … politely First, a few thoughts on Gerald Butts’ testimony, today, which did little, in my opinion, to counter what Ms Wilson-Raybould had to say.
