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 […]

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 […]

Understanding Totalitarianism

Here’s the link to an article I saved from the National Post, September 12, 2012, written by the late, and very excellent, George Jonas. It perfectly encapsulates the view that any non-totalitarian would have; that is, that parents have a “prior right” to decide on all aspects of their children’s education. The “prior right” quote […]

An Important Political Story

There are three candidates running for the United Conservative Party (UCP) nomination in the new Calgary riding of Peigan. One of the candidates is Jeevan Mangat. Another is Tanya Fir whose campaign manager is Craig Chandler, a man who has often been a controversial figure within Alberta conservatism. For the most part I try to […]

Jordan Peterson & the Speech Nazis

The anti-free speech, anti-freedom of assembly Progressivist Left is at it again. The target of their opprobrium is Prof. Jordan Peterson whose original sin was to insist that he would not submit to being ordered, by government, to speak certain words. In saner times he would have been lauded as a free-speech champion. But we’re […]

The Right to Discriminate

To Discriminate means to recognize a distinction between things. I think that even the dimmest among us recognizes that red and green are two different colors and that some people have better voices than others and some people are better athletes than others. So we discriminate when we go to a concert, or an athletic […]

Free Speech and the Left

As you know, John Carpay and the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom (JCCF) are in the forefront of fighting back against Progressivist attacks on basic human rights, including attacks on free speech. Free speech used to mean that you could say anything you wanted, provided it didn’t promote or incite violence. Free speech even included […]

Exposing Lies, and Totalitarianism

Rather than a regular blog this week, I’m going to encourage you to watch the following two, very brief videos. One is by Theresa Ng of Parents for Choice in Education. The other is by John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom. Theresa exposes the lie that alternate schools are a financial burden […]

Please accept …. my apology

Back in the mists of time, 1960 to be exact, or prehistory to Millennials, Brenda Lee had a monster hit called “I’m Sorry”. One of the lines was: “I’m sorry, so sorry; please accept my apology.” With some slight modifications, it could have been the theme song for Canadian governments for the past 20 years or so.

Cool Christians

Recent article in Vice.com. “Meet the woke young people trying to make Christianity cool again.” Apparently, “Cool Christians” totally believe in anthropogenic global warming and climate change orthodoxy, and in human rights and racial equality. Before reading the story, it had never occurred to me that the point of adopting a worldview, like Christianity, or […]
