Gender ID polarization child abuse!

Right now, Canadians are being bitterly divided. Some people believe a student under the age of 15 should not be talking to a school employee about gender identity without parents being informed. Others believe all students’ individual human rights are violated if their concerns on gender can not be confidential. Obviously there are valid arguments […]

Chinese Canadian discrimination?

During WW II, Canada confiscated homes and businesses and put Japanese Canadians into internment camps lest they be more loyal to the country they or their ancestors came from than to Canada. We did nothing remotely similar to German or Italian new Canadians. In recent decades, we remember French President Chares de Gaulle saying, Vive […]

Precious but obsolete?

100 years ago, young men did not usually rise to positions of power and authority until what are now considered retirement ages for many. Women didn’t get there at any age. Young men started a Junior Chamber of Commerce to help young men between 18 and 40 develop leadership skills. The organization eventually grew into […]

Dystopian human future

Aug. 20,2022 Worker Productivity Score is the latest sinister technological term I find horrifying and outrageous. Companies like Amazon can and do monitor and control every aspect of their employees’ behaviour and performance every minute. Employees are as tightly managed as caged chickens in an agribusiness egg factory. It is part of the economic model […]

Teaching financial dependence

Teaching financial dependence I have a quandary about social assistance. On the one hand, I believe we have to provide decent shelter and care for everyone. On the other, I worry we risk teaching people they are suckers to manage their incomes and savings responsibly and prepare for their retirement. When people need assisted living […]

Trudeau achieves greatness

February 23, 2022 I’ve been with Trudeau from the beginning on the pandemic and the convoy insurrection. I think it will become a proud part of Canadian history. At first many Canadians were angry he was standing back. What reason would a Prime Minister have to meet with a group holding Canada’s national Capitol hostage, […]

Newspaper death throes

Together we are killing the golden goose that brings us information we need to protect and monitor our lives, families, incomes, laws and freedoms.

Legs, thighs, owner benefits

A friend sent me a collection of old newspaper and magazine ads from the past century. Some things change. One doesn’t. Modern day ads don’t promote the health benefits of cigarettes, cocaine or alcohol and opium tonics. Women’s legs and thighs, however, are still a prominent feature of many ads and commercials. Even ads for […]

Immigration essential to progress

As a kid, just after WW II and the Korean Conflict, as it was called, I saw Toronto dragged kicking and screaming into being one of the greatest cities of the world. Wave after wave of immigrants shocked and angered the waspish southwestern Ontario populace. First came people from countries occupied by the Axis during […]

Marijuana regulation lunacy

Accusation. Do politicians all go nuts once they win government and influence over large bureaucracies? It seems so. Recreational cannabis use becomes legal in Canada July 1. Governments have gone into a feeding frenzy launching claims for shares of the tax revenues that will result. Bureaucracies are setting up retailing operations and crying the blues […]
