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 […]

GID Sports, and other endeavors.

Women’s Sports are being destroyed by political correctness. There is an equitable solution.

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 […]

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 […]
