The Liberal War On English Canada

Jul 17, 2017 — Brad Salzberg

A recent payout of $10.5 million dollars to convicted terrorist Omar Khadr represents a watershed moment in the history of political correctness in Canada. As endorsed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr. Khadr has hit the jackpot and can now settle into a life of luxury upon Canadian soil. Not bad for a terrorist convicted of murder.

While there isn’t a politician past or present who has disgraced our country with the vigour of Justin Trudeau, the road to the loss of our national dignity did not originate with our current prime minister. This we can attribute to the founder of Canada’s collective self- loathing— his father.

Pierre Trudeau is the most misunderstood figure in Canadian history. A maverick political figure from day one, Trudeau Sr. thumbed his nose at western institutions of his day while embracing socialist ideology discovered during his travels as a student in Asia.

Feigning Democracy: Liberalism In Justin Trudeau’s Canada

Mar 6, 2017 — Brad Salzberg

While monitoring the behaviour of our Liberal government thus far in its tenure, a common theme unifies the assessment: democracy sure isn’t what it used to be.

Indeed, the concept of a government “for the people, by the people” has long since vanished from our political environment. Incrementally, in a most discreet manner, our nation has become an entity whereby the only remaining vestige of true democratic process is to be found in electoral democracy— the method by which our politicians are voted into office.

Terminating An Identity: Liberalism and The Anglo-Canadian Community

May 12, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

For as long as nations have existed, so too have wars between nations. Additionally, battles within nations—commonly referred to as civil wars— have resulted in the demise of many countries throughout history.

In the modern era, however, a new category of war has begun to emerge. These battles are not fought with guns or tanks, nor do they employ other traditional elements of warfare.

They do, however, involve a calculated plan of attack. Unlike traditional warfare, these attacks do not target human beings, but rather a nation’s cultural and social foundations. Equally disconcerting is the fact that the perpetrators are often those holding high level political positions within these countries.

Liberal-Socialism And The Erosion Of Christian Canada

Mar 30, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

In the world of politics, as with many situations in life, making promises often leads to unexpected results. Nowhere is this more apparent than when considering the post-election behaviour of Canada’s ruling Liberal government.

The examples are many— a pronouncement of a 10 billion dollar federal deficit, which turned out to be triple that amount.  An increase in the Syrian refugee quota from the original 25,000 to 55,000—a quantity the majority of Canadians oppose— are two of the most prominent.

English Canada: Journey To The Back Of The Bus

Mar 16, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

Canada is a nation founded upon journeys. From the arrival of our earliest migrants, to the construction of our trans-national railway, to those who boarded the rail lines to settle our western provinces, ours is a nation founded by travellers from distant lands.

Canada’s past is filled with colourful stories of journeymen and women— early Scottish pioneers, Ukrainian homesteaders, as well as those who battled the high seas sailing to our shores from the Far East. These and many other examples are well documented within our history books.

No Silver Lining: The Black Cloud Behind Justin Trudeau’s “Sunny Ways”

Mar 7, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

For those born and raised in Canada, it is with shock and amazement that we come to understand our current Liberal government’s social agenda for the future of our nation.

Guessing Game: The Unfathomable World Of Canada’s Liberal Government

Mar 1, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

As with most fifty-somethings born and raised in Canada, I grew up in a world previous to the age of the internet. In terms of screen time, our choices were limited to watching T.V. or going to the local movie theatre. During this time period— basically the decade of the 1970s— television entertainment consisted mainly of cop shows, sit-coms and game shows.

When considering the present-day political landscape within our country, it is difficult not to conclude the entire spectrum has something of a game-show quality about it. Indeed, from a public perspective, the ruling Liberal Party program has all the components of a high-stakes guessing game.

Odd Man Out: The Singular Political Stylings Of Justin Trudeau

Feb 24, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

Justin Trudeau is a man of the people. This in itself, cannot be questioned. What can be questioned, however, is whether or not our current Prime Minister is a man of the Canadian people.

Barely four months into a four-year term, Justin Trudeau has quickly established himself as the most atypical prime minister in Canadian history. Only Justin’s father, former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, comes close— although Trudeau Sr. was subtle enough to hide his lack of respect for general public opinion.

Culture Wars: The Battle For The Soul Of Canada

Feb 9, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

The recent election of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ushered in not only a new era of politics within Canada, but more broadly speaking, a new era within Canadian society as a whole. Interestingly, the roots of this era began with another Prime Minister by the name of Trudeau—Justin’s father, Pierre.

In basic terms, it was former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau who brought into existence the post-modern era of multicultural Canada. At the time, few Canadians appeared to object— not that they had any choice in the matter. Simply put, Trudeau Sr. made a decision on behalf of all Canadians to eradicate our nation’s bi-cultural English and French identity, and replace it with what he termed “multiculturalism within a bi-lingual framework.”

End Game: Justin Trudeau And The Cultural Transformation Of Canada

Jan 23, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

“There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada. Those qualities are what make us the first post-nation state.”

So says Justin Trudeau, freshly-minted Prime Minister of Canada. What are Canadians to make of this curious proclamation?  Does his post-modern vision happen to include an endorsement or approval from the Canadian people? If the name is Trudeau, and the nation is Canada, nobody should be surprised that it does not.

This method of political decision-making is far from an isolated incident. Justin’s father—former three-term Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau— also enjoyed toying with the fate of our nation based upon personal opinion. In fact, it was Trudeau Sr.’s socialist-infused political agenda which placed our nation in the precarious position we currently find ourselves in.

Like Father, Like Son : Globalist Visions Of Justin & Pierre Trudeau

Jan 12, 2016 — Brad Salzberg

Generally, the concept of respect is a two-way street. From a political standpoint, governments must maintain a degree of respect for their citizens in order to receive respect in return. Unfortunately, a reciprocal relationship of this nature is very much lacking within contemporary Canadian politics.  In fact, a lack of respect is presently emanating from a rather questionable source— the Prime Minister of Canada.

Barely three months into a four year term, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has already revealed the level of respect he has for Canadian citizens— none whatsoever. Breaking campaign promises like a drunk breaks glasses at a tea party, Trudeau has revised or reneged on one campaign promise after another. Withdrawing jet fighters from the Middle East, fulfilling Syrian refugee quotas (are any of the refugees actually Syrian?), and legalizing weed are three which quickly come to mind.

Compassion As A Weapon: Politicizing The Syrian Refugee Crisis

Sep 21, 2015 — Brad Salzberg

The current refugee crisis in the Middle East is filled with contention, however few issues are as contentious as which nations are responsible for accepting Syrian refugees into their homelands.

Manufacturing Responsibility: Canada And The Syrian Refugee Crisis

Sep 8, 2015 — Brad Salzberg

While responsibility for the Syrian refugee crisis is a complex international issue, the subject of Canada’s responsibility for the crisis is straight-forward — our nation is not responsible.

There is, however, little doubt that many within our society are at odds with this statement. Canada is by and large a compassionate country, and it is therefore reasonable to expect Canadians to support a substantial intake of those affected by the war in Syria.

Syrian refugee crisis

Sep 5, 2015 — Brad Salzberg

“As Amnesty International recently pointed out, the “six Gulf countries—Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain—have offered zero resettlement places to Syrian refugees.” This claim was echoed by Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch”

In regards to the Syrian refugee crisis, it is important to note that the Gulf States of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, , Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain have done nothing to assist Syrian refugees, or any other refugees within their geographic proximity.

Equality or Eradication: The Future of “Multicultural” Canada

Aug 25, 2015 — Brad Salzberg

In 1988, ​official multiculturalism was entrenched into ​the Canadian constitution, seventeen years after former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau introduced the concept to the Canadian public.

City For Sale: Vancouver, Foreign Money, And The Demise Of Home Affordability

Aug 17, 2015 — Brad Salzberg

There is Canada, and there is Vancouver. For people unfamiliar with Western Canada’s largest city, it may appear Vancouver is indeed one of our country’s major urban centres— a vital, integral component of our overall nationhood. They couldn’t be more misinformed. Yes, geographically-speaking, Vancouver is part of Canada. Beyond this, however, lies a truth seldom recognized—namely, that our fair city is an aberration within Canadian society.

Charter Challenge: Civil Liberties And The Erosion Of Canadian Culture

Aug 6, 2015 — Brad Salzberg

Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, founded by former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, is the most transformative piece of legislation in modern Canadian history

Entrenched into our constitution in 1982, the Charter’s transformative nature is found not in its declaration of personal liberty and equality, but rather in how the legislation is utilized, and by whom. Surely, few Canadians oppose laws which guarantee individual rights such as freedom of speech, or freedom of assembly. The extension of these rights to all Canadians, regardless of race or religion, is very likely acceptable to the average Canadian— whether a recent arrival to our shores, or a descendent of those who farmed our prairie lands at the turn of the 20th century.
