Here we go. “Ottawa to take equity stake in Air Canada”

My last post (before I started painting my house — a work in progress) included the line "We're on our way." It was a line penned by Jonah Goldberg, after writing that socialism is...

“We’re on our way.” And it’s not to a good place.

I subscribe to a number of brilliant people on Substack. Among them, Jonah Goldberg (formerly of National Review, now of The Dispatch, via their conduit, Substack). For years I've enjoyed his every-Friday G-File email, which...

Canada making world news as a laggard again.

I've read article after article ripping on Canada, but when one of the biggest newspapers in the world is hitting this hard with this huge article (my yellow highlighting), even liberalvision CTV might notice...

CDC issues dire code-red warning to avoid all travel to Canada

Over the last weekend the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S. issued their highest warning to avoid all travel to Canada, due to Canada's horrible — dangerously horrible — response to the Wuhan...

Hair monsters, you look idiotic

I guess they're trying to pretend they can't get their hair cut because they closed all the hair-cutting businesses due to the Wuhan Virus (or what they call "Covid-19" for some weird reason having...

Advisor to BC NDP Premier Horgan says Canada’s allegations of China Communist Party Genocide...

An advisor to BC's NDP Premier Horgan, a retired provincial court judge and a member of B.C.’s Chinese-Canadian Advisory Committee, said on Chinese-language radio last week that allegations of a Uyghur genocide in China...

NDP Proposals — Part Socialist. Well, OK, ALL Socialist.

Editor's note: Here's the last — I promise — of my follow-ups to the day's posting about the NDP policy convention this week. This is part four of four parts. Here's One | Two...

NDP Proposals — Part Cuba

Editor's note: Yet another followup — this would be #3 — to the day's writing about this ( here's part 1 | part 2). There's also a part 4 now! Mix a large country with...

NDP Proposals — Part Duh

After my post earlier this morning, I continued reading the you've got to be kidding party's 2021 convention policies. Outside of the literally communist — no exaggeration here — policy platforms they will vote...

NDP proposal: abolish billionaires by taking 100% of their money; phase-out armed forces and...

There's a reason I call the NDP "the you've got to be kidding party." Here's John Ivison in this week's Postmedia column in advance of the you've got to be kidding party's annual convention (National...

Most important to Canadians: not “racism”

This is a sort of add-on to an article I just posted, because even though my writing there ended (mercifully, you say?), my mind kept going, wondering what the hell is driving Canadian voters...

Liberal Gov now spending DOUBLE what was spent during World War Two

The study, Prime Ministers and Government Spending: 2021 Edition, released yesterday, shows the spending is not all Wuhan Virus-related (or "COVID" as they call it for some weird reason), but rather, it started well...

CNN pretends there’s confusion over what sex you are born as

How to know when it's time to stop reading or watching CNN or any of the other such brainwashing or propaganda outfit of idiocy that is just like them (and there are many): when...

Canada being recognized in the U.S. for its ineptitude

America's biggest newspaper is recognizing Canada today, once again not for something good, or something that is pride-inducing for Canadians, but instead for its Liberal government's ineptitude. At least this time it wasn't for...

We’re number one! No sorry, FORTY-one!

Bloomberg provides the bad Wuhan China virus (they call it "Covid-19" for some new, illogical reason) vaccination stats for Canada and the world, and sees us just edging out Bangladesh for "doses administered" (America...
