DiCaprio, Chinooks and Hot Air

Speaking to Variety Magazine recently, Leonardo DiCaprio said that the warm chinook winds he encountered while filming in Calgary were a terrifying reminder of the seriousness of climate change. Of course Calgarians have loved the chinook since the city was founded in 1884, just as native North Americans living on the east slopes of the Rockies have […]

Reality and the minimum wage

December 7, 2015 My little blue Ford Fiesta was due for an oil change, so first thing this morning I phoned my mechanic and he said, “Bring it over.” Gorgeous morning, and it was going to take a bit of time, so I decided to hike over to my local McDonald’s and have a coffee. […]

Who is Bill Six?

Bill Six? That’s a question that a lot of city dwellers might not be able to answer. But actually, it’s an NDP government piece of legislation called Bill 6, and it’s clear that what it means to the agricultural community that it’s aimed at, is a question that the government can’t answer either. The NDP says that its purpose is […]

Totalitarian Bureaucrats are at it again!

In a country like Canada that not only was founded on the principles of freedom, but whose young men and women fought and shed blood to defend those principles, it is almost inconceivable that 21st century totalitarians feel they have the right to stifle freedom of speech and assembly. It doesn’t matter if you’re a […]

As you vote

Meritha and I voted early this morning. There was no lineup. I expect voting will pick up later in the day. I’m not a member of any political party; the online community I’m involved in – Let’s Do It Ourselves at ldio.org – is non-political. However, we, and LDIO, do have a philosophy. We believe in […]

The Liberal Legacy or déjà vu all over again

The last blog was about how the NDP’s socialist ideology works in practice, rather than in theory. It doesn’t, at least not for young people or for job creating entrepreneurs. But for bureaucrats and the unions, it’s Fat City! This blog is in video at https://youtu.be/oJc3txLOHyU But what about the Liberals? In my lifetime I’ve lived […]

Socialism doesn’t Work.

We’re in the final days of a very important federal election campaign, and we need to get this one right. Maybe it’s because of my age, but I’m convinced it’s usually a good idea to look back, before moving forward. Thomas Mulcair and the new Democrats certainly make a point of looking back to Saskatchewan’s […]
