Oct 12 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — Sun Media — When former Green Party leader Elizabeth May and Bloc Quebecois leader Yves-François Blanchet simultaneously declared the “death of oil” at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, they revealed a fundamental misunderstanding of the law of supply and demand.
Oct 10 2021 — Anthony Furey — Sun Media — It’s quite something that New Brunswick has attempted to flat-out ban Thanksgiving gatherings this year and in Alberta their policy is that you can’t invite the non-vaccinated over. Thankfully the tone is milder here in Ontario, but that hasn’t stopped officials from still trying to inject their wisdom into family celebrations.
Oct 10 2021 — Lorne Gunter — Sun Media — The Trudeau government’s mandatory vaccine policy for federal civil servants is like its supposed mandatory hotel quarantine for international travellers last spring. By that, I mean it is tough talk that amounts to nothing. The vaccine policy exempts tens of thousands of civil servants and will do very little to protect Canadians from COVID-19.
Sep 26 2021 — Lorne Gunter — Sun Media — Should Erin O’Toole stay on as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada? After all, it was O’Toole and his closest advisers who decided all on their own (without authorization from caucus or members), to oversteer the party to the left without producing anything resembling an electoral breakthrough.
Sep 17 2021 — Sun Media — He was once cast as our knight in shining armour coming to our political rescue. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. He’s not out of the woods. Not yet.

But the balance is not intuitive. The approach is inconsistent. Most people will find it impossible to figure out what is and isn’t allowed under the re-imposed restrictions. And that complexity and arbitrariness will make […]
Sep 12 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — Sun Media — The hysterical reaction by Quebec and federal politicians to Bloc leader Yves-François Blanchet being asked about Quebec’s discriminatory language and secular legislation by moderator Shachi Kurl during Thursday’s English language leaders’ debate is absurd.
Sep 4 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — Sun Media — Accusing the Conservative leader of having a “hidden agenda” on issues such as abortion and health care has been a successful mainstay of the federal Liberals’ election strategy for decades. But this time, for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, it’s not working because more Canadians believe Trudeau has a hidden agenda than Conservative leader Erin O’Toole.
Sep 4 2021 — Rick Bell — Sun Media — Get out those masks. Wash them good. Best be prepared. Now nothing is certain with the government of Premier Jason Kenney until top public health doc Deena Hinshaw and/or Health Minister Tyler Shandro and/or the big man himself gives the official pronouncement from on high.
