Celebrities and Politicans

It’s an absolute sin that in this era of Oprah, Blitzer and celebrity worship that the real catalysts of public opinion and potential policy makes it seem that in this election  the major media players such as Winfrey, CNN and NBC have the clout and blanket coverage to make them the most powerful brokers in politics today.

Canada - The “Stakeholder” Society – Quebec Must Leave

As an active worker for my political party on numerous occasions in the past and a long time donator to the Conservative Party of Canada and its predecessors, I have arrived at the conclusion that if any citizen thinks any Party, including mine, gives a damn for their personal opinion of government policy, other than at election time, they are living a fool’s dream.

The Lame Dog Syndrome

You know the type. The woman who writes love letters to convicts on death row or to men of habitually vicious criminality. The neighbourhood cat lady who the SPCA finds in a house of 19 cats coated with feces and filth because she can’t turn a stray away. The dog-lover who always selects the lame dog at the animal shelter when corrigible, healthy dogs are available. Such is the lame dog syndrome, and in the field of foreign aid, Canada is a chronic patsy.

A Son, a Soldier and Police Officer

(Editor’s Note: This article is dedicated to the memory of a very responsible son and boy named Louis-Joseph Tellis who recently passed away.)

While circumstances had me attending his funeral as an outsider,  I am no less proud of my son and what he had achieved in the 36 years that he lived.

Could Canada’s Conservative Government Fall Over Afghanistan?

In many ways, the War in Afghanistan has become the forgotten front in the War on Terror.  In this forgotten front, Canada has done a great deal of heavy lifting.
