A critical day for this century.

No, that’s not an exaggeration. Today is that critical day because it’s the last day that you can buy a membership in the Conservative Party of Canada, and you need that membership to be able to vote on a new leader in August. And that vote will hopefully set a new direction for Canada, and […]

LESLYN LEWIS. Remember that name.

For those of you that follow me on Facebook and Twitter and in my IWUZ.ME blogs, I don’t think it’s a surprise for me to tell you that I’m a social conservative. But I’m a moderate social conservative. I do believe in traditional marriage and I believe that it was breathtakingly presumptuous for Progressivists to […]

INDEPENDENCE. What we must and mustn’t do.

The Canadian federal election turned out to pretty much as expected, with a Liberal minority government that will be propped up by the NDP and Green Party. I think it’s important to note that if the Liberals are telling the truth about their intent to push forward with TMX or Trans Mountain pipeline, they can […]

Here’s why I’m a separatist

This is a note that I sent to the Chairman of the recent Essentials of Freedom conference in Red Deer Alberta, which was sponsored by the Economic Education Association. An absolutely exceptional conference! For clarity I’ve editorially expanded on points that I made in the note. Dear Danny Here’s why I’m a separatist I thought […]

Jason got it right!

I spent an hour listening to Jason Kenney’s Manning Conference speech. You should too. I know Jason just a little bit, and it’s exactly what I expected. It’s strategic, almost down to the last detail. For the last number of months I’ve been calling myself a separatist but maybe I should change that and call […]

It was The Best, and the Worst

What was arguably the most important election in Canadian history is over, and with apologies to Mr. Dickens, it’s now the Best of Times and it’s the Worst of Times. First, the Worst. Easy. Canadians are once again faced with the prospect of an “always drive in the left ditch” government led by the childlike […]

The Art of the Sacrifice

In previous blogs and social media posts I have stated my belief that Canada cannot be fixed, and that the path to a better future for our descendants is for Alberta and Saskatchewan to leave Canada and form their own nation. That will take sacrifice. Many have agreed, but as expected, some  have questioned my […]

Breast Feeding, and The Art of the Deal

Our oldest grandson is 24 and has finished his education as a journeyman electrician, and now plans to become an electrical engineer. He’s had a considerable amount of experience, but I doubt that he’s one bit better at negotiating than he was when he was three months old. Because, as a baby, even though he […]

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 […]

How Conservatives Win!

Rather than writing my own blog this week, I’m going to provide a link to an excellent article that should be read by every Albertan, and every Canadian, and every American, and every sentient citizen in the Western world. It examines the stark contrast between the intellectually chaotic and unrealistic world of modern Progressivist policy, […]
