Is this news, or is it propaganda? You tell me.

We see this every day in the news, or, ahem, "news," but it is getting increasingly brazen now, this Justin Trudeau face-licking. There's even a hashtag for it now: #JustinJourno (or #JustinJournos) — and...

Left-wing-governed Vancouver to see 9% rise in city taxes. Councillor: it’s only “reasonable.”

Maybe cancel the "climate emergency" and declare an all-out, out-of-control, overspending and inept council emergency instead. According to the acquiescent Vancouver Sun (which is half the problem — you won't even find the story —...

BC’s far-left NDP gov prances into Orwellian territory, because of course they do.

Big government control over everything. Because the people need to be controlled by the betters in big government. Control. Power. Over the people. Fear the government. Not the other way around, nope. This is...

Like “chickadees sneering at an eagle” — our self-esteemed, preening betters, who discard gems...

I barely watch any hockey and simply couldn't care less about it, but for the cohesion that it brings to a country that needs something to bring it together. You can imagine that if...

Newsflash for government regarding Canadian life: it’s not about you, actually.

Headlines like this from the Globe and Mail today make me want to throw something: Toronto’s John Tory makes friendly wager with Seattle mayor ahead of MLS Cup final clash What in hell's name does government...

Mexicans fly to Canada, then ditch Canada for the USA.

So much for the U.S. southern border, which is now being better protected against illegal aliens from Mexico, and other nationals further afield. So, many hundreds of Mexicans, and, according to the report, several...

Globe and Mail presumes to lecture us on politics and how the Conservatives can...

I won't take any lessons from the Globe and Mail, nor most any opinion-based media which borders dangerously close to being liberal propaganda, about the Conservative Party and its way forward. And nor should...

U.S. economy up 1.9% (annual GDP growth); or as Canadian media would say if...

Pre-election reporting differs from post-election reporting in much the same way apples are different than penguins. During one of my server crashes seven or so weeks ago, I mocked the Canadian media touting Canada's second...

Canada has sunk to 6th place in the world for its citizens’ generosity; dramatic...

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has ranked every county's generosity amongst its citizens over ten years, and created a "CAF World Giving Index." Canada placed below number two Myanmar, third place New Zealand, fourth...

Liberal government funded anti-semitic, pro-Muslim propagandish “voting guide” that helped Liberals

The story is unnerving to say the least. The article by Sue-Ann Levy suggests that Jewish groups have indicated they will investigate this further, but there is no indication that the actual Trudeau government...

Trudeau governs Canada based on trendy virtue-signals of the day

Last week I wrote about an answer given by Andrew Scheer after being asked by a reporter if his cabinet would be "gender balanced," like Justin Trudeau's. Scheer mercifully avoided the PC trap of...

Hi Hillary. Conservatives won the popular vote in Canada. Despite American interference. Trudeau legit?

Not only that (headline), but the Liberals got the lowest popular vote of any government in Canada's history. The lowest popular vote. In history. Think about that. The conservatives got nearly a percent and a...

State-owned Transit org waits to release report on CONGESTION on day of election

September 27, 2019 Conservative Party website: “Canadians are sick and tired of being stuck in traffic and waiting for delayed public transit,” said Scheer. “Canada’s Conservatives will get on with real projects that reduce congestion and...

Canada’s 2.2 million licensed GUN OWNERS — job one today: vote.

Gun owners need to vote and tell other gun owners to vote.

From “He should be leader!” to “Imposter!” — in a few scandal-ridden years

The two magazine covers shown are stories by the same journalist. Justin Trudeau fooled that journalist (Paul Wells), obviously. And he fooled a lot of people, including a lot of other journalists. But people...
