Jordan Peterson & the Speech Nazis

The anti-free speech, anti-freedom of assembly Progressivist Left is at it again. The target of their opprobrium is Prof. Jordan Peterson whose original sin was to insist that he would not submit to being ordered, by government, to speak certain words. In saner times he would have been lauded as a free-speech champion. But we’re […]

Free Speech and the Left

As you know, John Carpay and the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom (JCCF) are in the forefront of fighting back against Progressivist attacks on basic human rights, including attacks on free speech. Free speech used to mean that you could say anything you wanted, provided it didn’t promote or incite violence. Free speech even included […]

Exposing Lies, and Totalitarianism

Rather than a regular blog this week, I’m going to encourage you to watch the following two, very brief videos. One is by Theresa Ng of Parents for Choice in Education. The other is by John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom. Theresa exposes the lie that alternate schools are a financial burden […]

Alberta needs a Moderate!

I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a small C conservative who believes that the politics we get result from the culture we create. This blog, and the Let’s Do It Ourselves (LDIO™) online community, are dedicated to fostering a culture in which individual rights are protected, not overrun, by the State; […]

Only one choice for Real Conservatives

During the United Conservative Party (UCP) leadership race, I would have preferred to be able to remain neutral. But I can’t. I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a small C conservative who believes that the politics we get are a result of the culture we’ve created. This blog and the Let’s […]

We Can Win. We Must Win!

Hello friends Last week I said that I was going to go see Al Gore’s latest disaster fantasy, and report back to you. I will, but later. So far it sounds like the lineups are short. But for the next few weeks I’m going to draw your attention to an issue that’s even more critical […]

Restoring Moderation

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the need for a moderate conservatism. I agree. Progressivist Conservatives often tell us that they are fiscally conservative but socially progressive, in other words, they are models of moderation. What it really seems to mean in practice is that you must timidly support every  social initiative of […]

Fighting for Alberta’s Kids

Meritha and I recently attended a Conference on the Family in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The three featured speakers were Theresa Ng, a mom and teacher who blogs at Informed Albertans; Donna Trimble, executive director of Parents for Choice in Education and John Carpay of Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms , JCCF. These are three excellent […]

Response to Randall

Over the past few weeks I’ve published one blog entitled:Who is Subsidizing Whom?, and another entitled Stop Subsidizing Public Schools! Unsurprisingly, I got some feedback, both positive and negative. One source of negative feedback was Randall. Full disclosure; Randall is my cousin and our worldviews are different, so we spar from the perspectives of Socialism […]

Stop Subsidizing Public Schools!

In an interview with CBC News, Duncan Kenney, the executive director of Progress Alberta made the following statements: “We subsidize our private schools more than every other province in the country.” He also said: “We have 15 elite private schools in Calgary collectively soaking up more than $30 million annually in public subsidies.” Unfortunately, both […]
