I must tell you, my friends, that I am starting to worry although I am not quite panicking. The problem, you see, is that the World Series is in danger of ending too quickly. I love Series time but it’s rather like fall because the trouble with fall is that winter is right behind. Similarly, […]

Well, fellow friends of freedom of the press, what now? Agreements between Postmedia – the country’s largest newspaper chain – and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), plus an equally disgraceful deal between the company’s Vancouver Province and the LNG industry have permanently stained the organization’s journalistic credibility. Postmedia is broke and then some. That, however, has never […]

So there!

Dear Baseball fans who support the Blue Jays. I offer the same condolences you would offer me as a Dodger fan and offer you our time honoured war cry, “wait’ll next year”! The Jays had a very good year with a talented and exciting team. They have much to be proud of and nothing to […]

It was an election by younger people if the faces on TV are any indication. Mind you, at my age, almost everyone looks young!

Change is never easy and the results are never perfect. What one looks for is improvement and the ability to make future changes in case what you’ve done […]

What a way to come to the end of a long life! Thanks to Bill C-24, a breathtaking piece of legislation that the Conservative Government somehow snuck past most Canadians last year, I am now a second-class citizen, though born a sixth generation Canadian. Actually, that part doesn’t matter since the point is I was born an […]

The critical question that arises out of the political campaign at this point is whether or not “strategic voting” is going to kill the Green Party. There’s no doubt that they are hurting badly at this point. Stephen Harper has forced voters to where they believe they must must consider any possible strategy by which […]

I am pleased to see that Brent Stafford, shill for the Postmedia Group and Resource Works and their unqualified support for Woodfibre LNG, has chosen to respond in the social media to articles of mine written in this publication. Stafford defends the notion that you can interview with one interviewer then have that interview voiced […]

I find myself, late in this election campaign, ashamed to be a Canadian. As a longtime supporter of the rights of Quebec going back to days where I was involved in constitutional affairs in this country, I find myself utterly appalled at their creation and fanning of the “niqab” issue. Let’s make no mistake about […]
