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 […]

Oilsands Reclamation Reality

Better than before. That’s often the result of reclamation projects in Alberta’s oilsands. This link takes you to a series of photos, including some before and after shots, of what is happening. I also included a letter I wrote to The Economist magazine regarding their abysmally unbalanced coverage of Canada’s oil industry, and particularly the […]

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 […]

Attacked on all sides!

Here’s an excellent article by Licia Corbella on why we need a public inquiry into the US billionaire funded attacks on Alberta. She starts off: “Lies and smears have been spread around the world about how damaging Alberta’s oilsands are to the existence of our planet. The response over all of those years by the […]

Losing Western Civilization

Meritha and I like Dr. Jordan Peterson, who is, shall we say, an uneasy member of the faculty of the University of Toronto. We also like American radio host, Dennis Prager, who on Prager University produces five-minute videos by extremely well informed and thoughtful people. This conversation between the two of them displays the best […]

That was a good week!

Last week got off to a great start when the United Conservative Party of Alberta ended the NDP’s four-year ideological rampage that promised, among other problematic certainties, a future of massive debt for our offspring and ever increasing uncertainty as to who or what is male or female, or neither. More on that next week. […]

The End of Sports?

Just when I am absolutely convinced that transgender radicals have plumbed the deepest depths of absurdity, they prove me wrong. We’re now told, as Barbara Kay notes in the linked article, that rather than being observed at birth, a baby’s gender is “assigned” at birth. I suppose that this means that even if a baby […]
