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 […]

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 […]

Nietzsche Rediscovered

I’ve always considered psychiatry to be a soft science at best, but in the last couple of years I’ve taken another look at it, mainly because Jordan Peterson seems to have hardened it up. Peterson actually refers to hard data, which many scientists do with decreasing frequency. Peterson often quotes Vienna psychiatrist Carl Jung, and […]

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 […]
