PTBC is about normal
principled conservative viewpoints.

PTBC has over 12,000 articles written by several columnists, over 20+ years.

Given the chance to learn from history and think ahead, liberal MPs chose death.

They only believe in SOME science. They only follow SOME experts.

Joe Oliver for leader? Alas no. But heed to his leadership.

Financial Post — Joe Oliver penned a good column today offering good conservative sense for Conservatives. So that's something different and worthwhile for you to read today in the papers increasingly filled with total bunk and muck — usually from lefties — about how the Conservatives need to go still further leftward to win. It's headlined "Conservatives must persuade the electorate, not pander to the left." And it's worth your read.

"...There is an economic and cultural route to broaden the appeal of Conservative values and policies: bring the public to you, rather than mimic the left-wing’s latest faddish ideals and retreaded socialist truths. That is what leadership is all about. ..."

Ronald Reagan believed in and practiced this philosophy very effectively, making wonderful speaches counseling his fellow conservatives to speak up — "in bold colors" — to convince the electorate to vote for the values — conservative values — which most of their fellow electorate actually already believed in. And he was one of the best and most popular presidents in US history. Joe Oliver wrote today about some of those Canadian conservative values, which, similarly, are actually Canadian values.
Joe Oliver isn't running to be the leader. He's 81 and is rightly enjoying retirement. But anybody who wants to follow in Ronald Regan's — or Joe Oliver's — footsteps is more than welcome to step up at this time, please.

Lefty Mayor caught maskless but it’s ok: “I was feelin’ the spirit!”

National Review — Another article you won't read in 99% of the "news" media because, oh do I even have to say it?... she's a lefty mayor! (and we can well imagine the "news" media's faux outrage if she was a he and he was a Republican):

The mayor of San Francisco [London Breed] says that she shouldn’t be criticized for breaking her own COVID rules, because, and I quote, “I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.” CBS reports:

“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” said Breed during an interview to address the controversy.

The city’s health order states attendees at live indoor performances must remain masked except when actively eating or drinking. Breed maintained that she was drinking at the time.

“My drink was sitting at the table,” said Breed. “I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.”
As Charles C.W. Cooke points out, the hideousness doesn't stop just at her hypocrisy, her failure to take responsibility for her own actions, or her elitist rule-breaking, it's the fact that she laments the notion of "the fun police," when, in fact, as mayor and as the perpetrator of these asinine rules, she IS "the fun police."

Best post-election headline so far

Wall Street Journal — They get the headline just about right: Their opener:

The late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher counseled that in politics “standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous. You get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.” That’s the lesson delivered to Canada’s Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole in Monday’s national election.

I like that they added this because Canadian "news" media are loathed to mention it:

Yet while they again won the popular vote, they finished a distant second in seat count with about 119, two seats down from 2019. (By the way, the Tories have won the popular vote in five of the last six elections, which is a lesson for Americans who think this only happens because of the Electoral College.)

They see what I see. O'Toole: Speaking in pale pastels — largely pink — instead of bold colors. Lesson #596 for the Conservative Party of Canada. They'll learn someday. Maybe.

BC’s NDP gov and their “news” media divisions hiding stats and facts? Here’s one. For all the noise from the Canadian national "news" media, you'd think Ontario was the only province in the country, and that it's doing terribly with regard to the Wuhan Virus (which everybody still calls "COVID" on orders from the Communist Party of China). That's not news to anyone outside of Ontario. What might be news to people both outside and inside of Ontario is that BC's rate of death is nearly twice that of Ontario.
Don't worry lefties, even people in BC don't know that, because the "news" media in BC are actually cheerleaders for the NDP government of BC — much as the national news media is actually a division of the federal Liberal Party (well and the Ontario Liberal Party of course). Ontario is led by a party with the word "Conservative" in it, even though "Progressive" is the first and foremost word and concept in their party name and style of governance. But, you know, it's just deathn shit. Politics is way more important to the "news" media.
Facts. Get 'em anywhere you can, because you can't reliably get them from the "news" media.

Canada Excluded From International China Security Pact

Globe and Mail Dismissed by Justin Trudeau as merely a crass American salesman's move to pawn off the latest high-tech US-built nuclear subs to what we have to therefore assume he thinks are the total idiot Aussies, the three-nation deal didn't even include Canada in the talks leading up to the historic pact. And after Trudeau's comments on the matter (and the aforementioned attitude toward the Aussies), you can understand why.
"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday played down Canada’s exclusion from the Indo-Pacific security deal, saying it is merely a way for the U.S. to sell nuclear submarines to Australia ... “This is a deal for nuclear submarines, which Canada is not currently or any time soon in the market for. Australia is.”"
In a clear indication that even Trudeau's political bro Joe Biden doesn't actually take him or Canada seriously anymore (forcing one to wonder if his high-fivin' bro Barack Obama doesn't also come off as a bit two-faced after Obama gave Trudeau a campaign "endorsement" this week), even Canadian officials were left in the dark. Almost like Canada can't even be trusted anymore on any level.

"Three officials, representing Canada’s foreign affairs, intelligence and defence departments, told The Globe and Mail that Ottawa was not consulted about the pact, and had no idea the trilateral security announcement was coming until it was made on Wednesday by U.S. President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison."

Trudeau, in contrast, delayed Canada's Wuhan Virus immunization program by signing a deal not with the Americans or Brits, but with... CHINA, for vaccines, in what turned out to be a total failure with countless Canadian lives lost as a result. What is going on here?

The Article

Parliament voted to allow sex-selection abortions in Canada yesterday, voting down a proposed law which would have enabled Canada to join the league of civilized nations, and become a more, well, science-based, logical, and compassionate nation, founded, as our Constitution says, “upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.”

So this ensures we continue to have no law, and no recognition of God. And no principles. And if history is our guide, this will not end well.

In case you didn’t already know this, abortion is the most disgraceful, most egregious, most thoroughly disgusting thing ever thought of by humans. I think you do know that. Nonetheless, because Canada is, uniquely, without any abortion laws, and because any woman of any age can get an abortion at any time in her pregnancy up to and including the very end, for any reason or no reason at all, all paid for by the enabling and encouraging government, 70,000 to 100,000 abortions are done every year in Canada. Most of the killed are, apparently, girls. MPs are now on the historic record indicating they would like that to continue apace.

I think history will treat those MPs very badly.

The selective aborting of girls is also what we in the civilized world call “eugenics.” I think future activists and intellectuals and though-leaders might also apply other horrid terms to accurately describe “what they did back then.”

And I have an extremely difficult time grappling with the women and feminist men out there who insist on calling sex-selective abortions a “woman’s health” issue. Or “reproductive health.” This just exemplifies the lie that these people are perpetrating. It betrays their moral vacancy.

Justin Trudeau says he is not personally pro-choice, and that he only thinks Canada should be. Or something. (Of course he also says he is a pro-woman feminist, and all that, so…)

The grand feminist political leader, Trudeau, naturally (if you will forgive my use of that term) joined in voting to allow the selective abortion of females yesterday.

Every single Liberal MP including Justin Trudeau just essentially voted in favor of eugenics. And a third of the “conservatives” in the Conservative Party did too. Including the leader, Erin O’Toole, who is pro-choice —so extreme, in fact, that this “principle” of his is maintained even in the cases of killing girls only, i.e., eugenics. So he is truly all-in. But at least he “allows” his members to vote their own conscience on these matters. Two-thirds  of them thus voted for the law proposed yesterday. Good on them.

Trudeau, for his part, insists that every Liberal member who runs in an election under the Liberal banner be pro-choice — or pro “women’s health” or whatever they call it to fake you out. No Liberal MP can be pro-life in Trudeau/Liberal-land. It is literally forbidden under Justin Trudeau’s leadership. So they all voted the law down yesterday like good little boys, and girls. Mmmmbut Trudeau is pro-life himself, see. Personally, you see, he’s a Catholic.

    • “For someone to start questioning my own faith and accusing me of being a bad Catholic, is something that I really take issue with. My own personal faith is an extremely important part of who I am and the values that I try to lead with.” —
    • “Trusting in God’s plan. For someone as rational and scientific and logical and rigorous as I am, to accept the unknowable and to re-anchor myself in faith was really, really important to me.” —
    • “Since that moment, I still consider myself and have re-found myself of a deep faith and belief in God.” —

Like so many things that pass through Trudeau’s rarified air, “God” is useful in some areas, but not so much in others. “Law” — same thing. “Principle” — yeah the same. Science, logic — the Constitution — area all just tools to be deployed when expedient, or when it might enhance his own personal satisfaction.

A commenter on the online newspaper story about this, named Graham French, said it extremely well:

In a time when statues are removed and schools are having their names changed because people of the past didn’t live up to present day values, we should ask ourselves, will people of the future condemn us for what we do today? The answer, of course, is yes. And it won’t be for the way we treat animals. It won’t be for the way we treat the environment. It definitely won’t be for failing to reach gender equality or for institutional racism. It will be because we allow and institute abortion. This will be the crime that will be inexplicable to people of the future. Here we sit with more wealth and less children per person than almost any other society in history, and we defend the act of destroying the unborn for any convenience whatsoever. It will define us and it will horrify our descendants. And they will be right.
