To: The Rt. Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister Dear Prime Minister, Most issues we face today we’ve faced before. For an older person like myself there is a strong sense of déjà vu. We’ve been through deficits and surpluses; prosperity and recessions; government overspending and  government parsimony; and there’s always a list of special issues […]

Harper’s niqab stand seems ‘deliciously timed’ for a fall election. What the hell is the matter with us, anyway?

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has thrown down the gauntlet with his promise of federal tax giveaways for LNG enterprises.

I do not pretend for a second to know what is on the mind of First Nations leaders who have been skeptical of “Crown-First Nations” meetings such as took place this past Friday and the follow-ups currently being scheduled. Leaders like Union of BC Indian Chiefs’ Grand Chief Sewart Phillip and chiefs from Manitoba, Ontario […]

I have received a lot of feedback on my recent blog on John Weston, MP. Let me say that this was directed to Weston because he is my MP and it applies with equal force to all Tory MPs from British Columbia. I’ve been asked if I would resign were I in John’s position and […]

I think the Harper budget is a plus for the environment. It comes in a way from a roundabout look at things. The government will take habitat protection out of the Fisheries Act and will put developments on a “fast track”. Why is this good news? Because we now have it in writing what the […]
