You Be The Judge

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is accusing his political opponents of fear mongering because they are saying his new vaccine mandate imposed on truck drivers will cause supply chain issues. The PM says forcing truck drivers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 protects Canadians. We should be thankful the government cares so much about protecting us. […]

Your Monday Smile

Let us all hope this isn’t a permanent re-arrnaging, and that the new “normal” when it arrives won’t look tooo different from the old one.

Go Directly To Jail

One in four is a significant minority.  And in this case, a scary one. A recent poll says 27 per cent of Canadians feel a jail term is acceptable for those who choose not to be vaccinated against COVID-19. In other words, the Constitution be damned. Is this what we have become? Canadians used to believe […]

Health Care In Crisis?

For two years now Canadians have been told our health care system is on the brink of collapse, as hospitals and intensive care units are flooded with COVID-19 cases. These days it is the unvaccinated who are being blamed for putting extra stress on the system. There is some truth to that – the unvaccinated […]

A New Sharia Law

The Government of Quebec, that bastion of secularism, is planning a new tax based on Islamic law. Sad thing is, the politicians involved probably have no idea what they are doing. Jizya, according to Wikipedia, is a “form of financial charge on permanent non-Muslim subjects of a state governed by Islamic law.” While no longer officially policy […]

Have Times Changed?

In Germany in the 1930s it was the Jews who were the government scapegoats. They were portrayed as being responsible for all the ills of society. Get rid of them and Germany would be a paradise. History tells us what happened. Jews in Germany saw their rights being abridged by the state. Politicians, starting at […]

2021 In Review: Slim Pickings

The eighth most popular post here in 2021 was a 2020 offering that surprised me. I thought I had posted much funnier COVID humor earlier in the pandemic – but the numbers say differently. Looking at these today, 15 months after I first posted them, I still smile. But like everyone else, I just want […]

Wecome to 2022!

It has become an annual tradition. At the beginning of January I post the top ten most viewed posts here from the previous year. Maybe it is a leftover from my radio days and those end-of-year countdowns. Those posts will start tomorrow. This year I have noticed a real difference. And it isn’t only that […]

Another Year Ends

This isn’t where we wanted to be. This isn’t where they promised we would be at the end of the year. As 2021 draws to a close we find ourselves in the same mental place we were at the end of 2020 – hoping the COVID-19 pandemic will end soon. But this time not believing it […]

Welcome To 1984

A friend in the U.K. wanted to know if I had seen the news article. Was I aware that the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) had been tracking 33 million Canadian cell phones to monitor citizens’ movement during the pandemic? I hadn’t seen that specific article – but I knew it was going on. […]
