Target unacceptable homeless camps by treating drug addiction

Jul 4 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — It’s camping season in Canada — but not in the usual sense. From Penticton to Prince Edward Island, urban landscapes have become dotted with tent cities. Homeless encampments have been “visibly rising” according to the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Statistics Canada reports that on a given night, 25,000 to 35,000 people may be experiencing homelessness, […]

Google won’t wreck the news business. Chatbots will.

Jul 3 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — The funeral has begun. The pyres are lit; the mourners are weeping. RIP, Canadian media industry, we hardly knew ye. Between mergers, acquisitions, closures, and layoffs, you didn’t stand a chance. And then came Bill C-18. The legislation, passed last week, compels internet behemoths Meta and Google to compensate Canadian news outlets in exchange for […]

Byelections highlight nasty divisions to come

Jun 20 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — Four federal byelections have come and gone, and on the surface, it looks like nothing has really changed. People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier failed spectacularly in his quest to pry the Manitoba riding of Portage—Lisgar from the Conservatives. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s pal, Anna Gainey, romped to victory for the Liberals in the […]

Return of the Liberal-Conservative Party? Justin Trudeau, not Pierre Poilievre, may have more to fear from a new centrist party

May 14 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — By now, you have probably heard of Centre Ice Canadians. The group was co-founded a year ago by former two-time Conservative leadership candidate Rick Peterson. It made its debut as Centre Ice Conservatives, during the Conservative leadership process, holding a policy conference in Edmonton, followed by similar events in Halifax and Toronto. It published numerous […]

Immigration, the French language and Quebec

May 8 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — “Quebec caught in a trap. French forced into decline. Its political influence doomed. 12 million residents in Montreal. Quebec with 5 million. Ottawa’s grand plan explained. Justin is smarter than we think. They want to assimilate us all. All this, without any debate. Two catastrophic scenarios.” Forget King Charles III’s coronation or the Liberal Party […]

MP Michael Chong a symbol of how little Trudeau cares about protecting Canadians from Chinese interference

May 2 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — When it comes to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) interference in Canadian affairs, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is running out of runway. Not a week goes by that doesn’t bring fresh revelations about just how badly Canada’s national security has been compromised under his watch. This week, Conservative MP Michael Chong learned from a Globe and […]

Woke CBC dividing Canadians on the public dime

Apr 18 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — Is CBC government funded media? That’s the hottest question for the twitterverse this week — and for our politicians. According to a particularly juvenile post by Twitter CEO Elon Musk, it is — to the tune of 69 per cent. Not to be outdone, Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre warbled, “There. Now everyone is happy,” after […]

When Skatey Katie came to town

Apr 16 2023 — Tasha Kheiriddin — What were you doing last Friday afternoon at 12 PM eastern standard time? Chances are, you weren’t glued to a screen watching the hearings of the Procedure and House Affairs Committee, aka the Katie Telford Show. In much of Canada, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and there were better things to do […]
