Canada and the EU

It’s been a busy summer, yet Meritha and I have had several occasions to kick back and enjoy some of the sporadic stretches of great Calgary weather. One of our favourite things to do is go to Calgary’s East Village and walk along the river; one of the rare places our city fathers and administrators […]

A Better Country?

On Canada Day, Paula Simons wrote an article in the Edmonton Journal entitled: “My Canada includes Alberta.” Heartwarming, if it were true. But Alberta’s hurting, and it’s clear that some of our fellow provinces, and, most egregiously, the Canadian government, are deliberately adding to the pain. Ms. Simons trots out the usual arguments. “We are […]

Sick or Depraved, or both?

The Progressivist Left has an agenda to sexually confuse your children. I know that a lot of people can’t or won’t believe it, but it’s true. Here’s a link to an article about how the LGBT radical’s agenda is playing out in Vermont. Schoolchildren who can’t get an aspirin without their parent’s permission, are going […]

Two Reasons to Not Vote NDP.

Rachel Notley and the NDP came to power in in Alberta four years ago. Here’s why we can’t allow them to have another four years. The NDP inherited a mess in 2015, mostly caused by a collapse in world oil prices, and also the wild spending Progressivists in the former government. But while the petroleum […]

Alberta Election: CULTURE

There are two fundamental issues that Albertans must consider before Alberta’s election on April 16; issues about which we must think carefully, courageously, and completely. And when we’re thinking, we always need to start with facts, then think, then allow emotion, and then, speak, or act/vote. The first issue is; where are Alberta (and Western […]

To the creators of wealth

I had a different blog prepared for this week, but then a friend of mine sent me a link. It’s to a speech that Rex Murphy gave recently at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. Now you’re all well aware that I am an admirer of Rex Murphy, and on social media I’ve often linked to […]

It’s Barack Obama, or Reality

For those who like to be informed, there are a couple of really big events coming up in the next few weeks in Calgary. The first event is the Things that Matter Conference, February 8 and 9 at the Best Western, Port O’ Call. Sponsored by the Essentials of Freedom organization, it has an incredible […]

The Too Often Quoted, Kristopher Wells

In Alberta, it now seems that every time something comes up regarding an LGBT issue, Kristopher Wells pops up as the go to expert; always against parents, and always on the side of “progress” Let’s look at what Kristopher Wells means by progress. Wells is a professor, and a confidant of Alberta’s Education Minister, David […]

Understanding Totalitarianism

Here’s the link to an article I saved from the National Post, September 12, 2012, written by the late, and very excellent, George Jonas. It perfectly encapsulates the view that any non-totalitarian would have; that is, that parents have a “prior right” to decide on all aspects of their children’s education. The “prior right” quote […]

Hyenas under the Rainbow Flag

I’ve been to Africa several times, and I can tell you that hyenas are not well liked. Hyenas appear cowardly, and they have a weird laughing yap that sounds a bit creepy, and they are reputed to grab children. Probably rare, but it has happened. Which brings me to the title of this blog. I’ll […]
