The Next Prime Minister

A week from today Canadians will find out who will be the new leader of the Conservative Party (and potentially our next Prime Minister). I for one will be thankful that with the vote the email barrage will stop. Our Prime Minister is not elected. He or she is the leader of the party able […]

Prediction Time

You may have noticed that I have purposely avoided mention of Donald Trump in this space since he was sworn in as President of the United States.
