John Tory:  Why is it even a question?

A recent Nanos Research/Sun Media poll was taken that asked whether Ontario Progressive Conservative leader John Tory should stay or go. The respondents were evenly split; 39 per cent thought Tory should stay on as leader while the same percentage felt he should be replaced. Presumably the remaining 22 per cent; much like the way Tory ran the last election campaign didn’t have a clue.

Is Abolishing Canada’s Human Rights Commissions Necessary?

Mark Steyn possesses a mighty pen.  He writes about the grimmest of subjects namely the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism.  Yet he does so with a wit sharp enough that one nearly forgets what he writes about is no laughing matter.

Back Room Politics - A Study in Confusion

Boy would I love to be a fly on the wall inside the Stephen Harper’s, or for that matter Danny Williams’, office these days. Then again in order to know what’s really going on it’s more likley I’d have to get inside the heads of these two men. Now that’s a scary thought. I guess there’ll be no sleep for me tonight.

 2008:  The year of the nanny state

We are already living in a nanny state where governments at all levels take great delight in forcing people to live the way they want them to live; for their own good, you understand.

Mark Steyn Case Wakes Up Canadian Press to Human Rights Tribunals’ Threat to Free Speech

Opposition is growing in the press to the power and boldness of the Canadian Human Rights Commissions (HRC) to suppress freedom of expression and to police what Canadians may say in public. While Christians and social conservatives in Canada have been under attack through the HRC’s for years, it was not until the case against popular columnist Mark Steyn and Maclean’s magazine that the Canadian mainstream media has picked up the scent of a threat to their own freedoms.

Replacing logic with smugness

There’s something about the liberal mindset that doesn’t see the necessity of logic in advancing an agenda.  All that’s really needed in liberal dialectics is moral authority, which is another way of saying, “Don’t try to confuse me with facts, I’m right and you’re wrong.”

Outsourcing self-reliance

”Worst Snowstorm in 60 years”, the Toronto Sun’s headline screamed in its Sunday edition.  “Crippling storm!” exclaimed the Weather Network; “travelers stymied”, said the National Post.  “Women, visible minorities and gays hit hardest!” the Toronto Star exclaimed.

Why Canada Should Boycott the Beijing Olympics

In 2010, the world will get together in Vancouver-Whistler for the Olympic Winter Games. We will welcome them to an open society that appreciates different cultures and grants its citizens the freedoms that are so important to living with of dignity. Not so next year, at the Beijing Olympics.

China has been, and still is today, a society that denies these rights and freedoms to its citizens. You may have heard about their killing prisoners to sell the organs to Western customers. Or their disregard of local residents in their rapid expansion of construction, industry and power generation projects.

A discussion we shouldn’t even be having

The brutal murder of sixteen-year old Mississauga schoolgirl Aqsa Parvez, allegedly at the hands of her father, brings to light some of the inherent contradictions of official multiculturalism.  This is a discussion that we would not be having had we not adopted a policy of cultural equivalency, which is perhaps the most glaring weakness of the entire multicultural Ponzi scheme.

Evolving Whiners into Winners

When Canadian manufacturers faced their self-proclaimed “brush with death” experience with the recently once-soaring Canadian loonie, it starkly exposed the traditional Canadian method of making money – use a cheap dollar and cheap wages (compared to Americans) to compete and produce essential commodity products in many cases.

Men’s suits made to order in Toronto

It’s hard not to notice the impeccably clad men that bustle down King Street into huge skyscrapers and not think to yourself: “that is a nice suit”.
