Trudeau once again compromises Canada on international stage

Jun 8 2019 — Andre Marin — It certainly didn’t take long for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take the bait from Chief Commissioner of the National inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Marion Buller. Buller irresponsibly stated, in plainly nutty language, in her final report that Canada has and continues to practice genocide as “a continuous policy, with […]

Andrew Scheer’s fighting history, not Doug Ford

Jun 8 2019 — Lorrie Goldstein — Just eight months ago, the liberal media narrative was that newly-elected Ontario Premier Doug Ford might be after federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer’s job. Now it’s that Ford is hurting Scheer’s chances of winning in Ontario in the Oct. 21 federal election, which he needs in order to win Canada, and that’s why Ford has […]

Fossil fuels help us and the environment

Jun 6 2019 — Matthew Lau — The term “clean energy” is generally used to refer to energy from certain sources, like wind, solar and hydro. But what about fossil fuels? Does the use of fossil fuels make the environment cleaner or dirtier? The answer depends on who you ask. If you ask federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna (who recently posted and […]

MPs send Michael Cooper down Orwell’s ‘memory hole’

Jun 6 2019 — Lorrie Goldstein — Here are the banned words Conservative MP Michael Cooper quoted from accused Christchurch, New Zealand terrorist Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto that blew up the Commons justice committee last week: “Conservatism is corporatism in disguise. I want no part of it … The nation with the closest political and social values to my own, is the People’s […]

Ford making same financial mistakes as the Liberals, says Fraser report

Jun 5 2019 — — Premier Doug Ford is trying to balance the Ontario budget the same way former Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty did and it’s likely to fail, says a new report by the Fraser Institute. The problem, according to the study by Toronto Sun columnist Ben Eisen and Steve Lafleur, is that Ford’s 2019 budget relies mainly on […]

Globe and Mail understates Ontario’s fiscal challenge

Jun 4 2019 — — Last week, the Globe and Mail published an editorial discussing Ontario’s fiscal challenges, which badly misses the mark. The editorial argues that the Ford government needn’t concern itself with its stated objective of balancing the budget. Instead, it argues for shrinking the deficit somewhat, to around $6 billion or less, which the Globe says would […]

Tory MP Michael Cooper has little to apologize for

Jun 4 2019 — Lorrie Goldstein — Conservative MP Michael Cooper has apologized for being rude to Faisal Khan Suri, president of the Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council, following Suri’s testimony before the Commons’ justice committee last week. I agree with him on that. Cooper should not have insulted Suri by saying he “should be ashamed of himself,” nor should he have […]

Unifor’s bias will only worsen Liberal media bailout

May 29 2019 — Lorne Gunter — The very second last November when the five-person national executive of Unifor (Canada’s largest, private-sector union), decided to post a photo online proclaiming themselves to be “The Resistance,” and boasting they would be “Andrew Scheer’s worst nightmare” in the 2019 federal election — that very second — they became utterly unqualified to sit in judgment […]

Premiers are getting too involved in federal elections

May 26 2019 — Jim Warren — The role of Canada’s Premiers in federal elections is evolving to become more partisan. This leads to more conflict, personal attacks, and threatens the unity of the country. With so many Premiers active in the federal campaign against the Prime Minister, how will it be possible for them to work together post-election if Justin Trudeau […]

Trudeau’s ‘hidden agenda’ exposed

May 19 2019 — Lorrie Goldstein — As it turns out, the Canadian political leader with a “hidden agenda” is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, not Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer. Because while Trudeau was boasting about his “sunny ways” of governing, and falsely accusing Scheer of being sympathetic to white supremacists, the Liberal government he presided over was, in the unforgettable words of […]

The 2019 election is looking like 1972 all over again

May 19 2019 — Anthony Furey — Trudeau wins a majority government thanks to his personal popularity, as regular Canadians take to the streets to pose for photographs with him, swooning over his style. This is a description of Justin Trudeau and the 2015 election, right? Sure, but the same words equally apply to the original Trudeaumania – the 1968 election that […]

If Scheer wins, who will be the next Liberal and NDP leaders?

May 19 2019 — Jim Warren — Last week I listed the front-runners to replace Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer if he doesn’t win a majority government this October. The list included Doug Ford, Jason Kenney, Erin O’Toole, Lisa Raitt, Peter MacKay and Stephen Harper. The one who by far solicited the most positive response by email and on social media was Harper.
