Conservative caucus unrest mounts

Conservative caucus unrest mounts Defeated MPs aren’t invited to the post-election caucus meeting. Trouble brewing. Paul Wells In a sign of increasingly heavy-handed attempts to quell internal Conservative-party unrest following the defeat of Stephen Harper’s government, the party is planning a post-election caucus meeting to which defeated candidates would not be invited. This is a highly unusual step for any party to take. As a rule, both newly elected and returning MPs, and incumbent MPs who ran but were defeated, are invited to the first meeting after caucus.

PEW: Annual Firearm-Related Homicides Down Nearly 50 Percent from 20 Years Ago Scott Olson/Getty Images/AFP by AWR Hawkins On October 21, Pew Research Center released findings that show the annual rate of firearm-related homicides in America declined by nearly 50 percent between 1993 and 2013.

I’m A Liberal, But Guns Are Awesome

I’m A Liberal, But Guns Are Awesome AP Photo/Robert Ray by Allum Bokhari I recently visited a gun range and shot at things with not one, but two handguns. I’m told my aim was quite good for a rookie, but you can watch the video and decide for yourself. PS: I’m a liberal. The experience was totally at odds with both my political and national identity. I’m from Britain, a country where any semblance of a gun culture has long been stamped out by the constitutionally unrestrained power of Parliament. Both liberals and Brits look at America’s love of guns… View Article

More Concealed Carry Equals Less Crime

Poll: More Concealed Carry Equals Less Crime AP Photo/Al Behrman by AWR Hawkins A Gallup poll released on October 20 shows that a majority of Americans believe more concealed carry equals less crime.

In a pattern that has become very familiar, support for more concealed carry was driven… View Article

It infers a blatant disregard for honesty, ethics or principle. But it’s the word that springs to mind when you contemplate the insidious relationship between Ontario’s Liberal government and the teachers unions they do so much to cultivate and…
