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, […]

What Happened? Rachel’s Story.

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 awake citizen in the Western world. It examines the stark contrast between the intellectually chaotic and unrealistic world of left-wing Progressivist policy, […]

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 […]
