Why I am Right

PC government would reintroduce ‘buck-a-beer’ Those were the days when beer came in stubby bottles. Ontario PC leader Doug Ford has announced his party will bring “buck-a-beer” back to Ontario. He says it will respect consumers and promote price competition with the minimum price floor sale of beer in the province to $1 plus deposit per bottle. “For too long beer consumers have been forced to pay inflated prices for beer in order to increase the profits of big corporations. We’re going to allow price competition for beer and this will save consumers money,” Ford said Saturday in a...

Justin Trudeau tells Hamilton town hall Canadians can feel safe despite returning ISIS fighters Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a Hamilton town hall Wednesday that despite concerns over returning ISIS fighters, Canadians were safe in their country and could rely on the security and intelligence services to keep them that way. As the war against ISIS winds down, the government has said it’s aware of about 180 individuals “with a nexus to Canada” who had travelled overseas to join ISIS and other groups — and another 60 who had returned to Canada. Unlike Canada’s allies in Iraq and Syria,...

Tanya Granic Allen

Tanya Granic Allen no longer an Ontario PC party candidate after ‘irresponsible’ comments, Doug Ford says Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford says former party leadership hopeful Tanya Granic Allen will no longer be a candidate for the party. Ford made the announcement in a tweet just before 6 p.m. on Saturday. “We are a party comprised of people with diverse views that if expressed responsibly we would respect. However, the fact is her characterization of certain issues and people has been irresponsible,” Ford said in the statement. “Our party remains focused on defeating Kathleen Wynne and bringing relief to...

Canadians are sick and tired of nasty liberal identity politics Canada is not a racist country, and most Canadians are not racist people. It’s strange that this even needs to be said, but given the rise of divisive identity politics and ugly race-baiting in the news these days, it’s worth stating and restating. That’s not to say that racism doesn’t exist. It does – in every society around the world and throughout history. There is, however, an important difference between individual cases of racism – which we should join together to condemn – and so-called institutional or systemic racism....

Buckets of rocks are Pennsylvania schools’ last defense against shooters A rural Pennsylvania school district has equipped all 200 of its classrooms with buckets of rocks that students and teachers could use as a “last line of defense” in the event of a school shooting, the district’s superintendent said on Friday. The buckets are just one of the measures that Blue Mountain School District in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, has put in place this academic year, along with security cameras, secured building entrances and fortified classroom doors, Superintendent David Helsel said in a telephone interview. “We didn’t want our students to...

Like Father, Like Son: How Immigration Shows the Trudeau Liberal Contempt for Canada and Canadians “Family reunification”, is one of those phrases, an endless stock of which seems to be available to liberals of both the small and big L varieties, that are designed to sound nice and pleasing to the ear while concealing something rather nasty and vicious. “Family reunification” suggests the idea that in the processing of immigration applications, the government ought to give priority to those from would-be immigrants with close relatives already living in Canada. Few people, I think, would object to that idea, per...

Gun Laws In Canada

Trudeau gets tough on gangs by hassling target shooters The Justin Trudeau-led Liberal government has announced changes to Canada’s gun laws. The “good” news is, Canada’s large and thriving community of lawful gun owners probably expected it to be much more brutal than this. The bad news is, the laws aren’t really going to make anything better, and will probably make some things worse. Disclosure: I myself am a lawful gun owner. I’m also a supporter of reasonable and effective gun control measures. Some of what the Liberals are proposing this week is reasonable. Whether it’s effective, well, time...

Reality Vs Trudeau

Trudeau government’s needless obsession with gender is exhausting I went to a Service Ontario office in downtown Toronto Wednesday to renew my driver’s licence. It was everything a customer/taxpayer could want: Swift service from an employee who was polite and capable. I was in and out within 15 minutes, just as I usually am when I go to such an office every year or two to do business. That’s pretty much all I want, not only from this particular department, but also from any and all arms of government: In my freaking dreams, of course. While the front-line Service...
