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 […]

It’s a Left-Wing Meltdown! Y’all Come!

I’ll admit it’s been amusing, in a sadistic sort of way, to watch the left-wing meltdown since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States on November 8. First of all, and the US Constitution notwithstanding, they insisted was an illegitimate result because Trump only won the Electoral College, but not the plurality of […]

We are become Death

A few days ago it was reported that as doctor assisted suicide becomes more popular, it will save Canada’s health care system millions of dollars a year. So I had a bit of an online discussion about it, and pointed out that in Belgium and the Netherlands the assistance has not always been requested by […]

Sandra and Hillary

I expect that I would disagree with Sandra Jansen about most things. I see her as an Elitist Progressive of the first order, and I think the manner of her crossing the floor of the Alberta legislature, from a purportedly Conservative party, straight into the embrace of a committed socialist party, says all you need […]

Totalitarian Bureaucrats are at it again!

In a country like Canada that not only was founded on the principles of freedom, but whose young men and women fought and shed blood to defend those principles, it is almost inconceivable that 21st century totalitarians feel they have the right to stifle freedom of speech and assembly. It doesn’t matter if you’re a […]

Ignorant, Arrogant and Dangerous

July 24, 2015 Ezra Levant is in trouble again. This time it’s for suggesting that the Alberta Human Rights Commission (AHRC) is “crazy” for ordering Alberta’s engineering profession to lower its standards so that a wannabe Alberta engineer could pass its qualifying test. Apparently a Czech immigrant failed the Alberta engineering exam three times, so […]

Pursuing Tolerance, or, Why I believe in the Niqab

July 1, 2015 Today is Canada Day, formerly known as Dominion Day. Many people from around the world choose July 1 to take the oath of Canadian citizenship. I thought it might be appropriate to rerun and expand a bit on the following Facebook post from last February. A story that’s been in the news […]
