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 […]

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 […]

A Better Country?

On Canada Day, Paula Simons wrote an article in the Edmonton Journal entitled: “My Canada includes Alberta.” Heartwarming, if it were true. But Alberta’s hurting, and it’s clear that some of our fellow provinces, and, most egregiously, the Canadian government, are deliberately adding to the pain. Ms. Simons trots out the usual arguments. “We are […]

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 […]
