Election 1 yr away; Battle on Carbon Pricing Favors Liberals: We have seen Conservative Governments in Ontario and Saskatchewan balk at carbon pricing and the Federal Conservatives basically trying to use the old “tax on everything line” they used with success against Stephane Dion’s Green Shift a decade ago, cancelling climate change fighting programs and/...
Canada signs on to new NAFTA.. er… USMCA trade deal: It’s not a perfect deal, and there are some things in it I’m not totally happy about (ie the pharmaceutical companies getting 10 year patent protection on drugs vs the 8 years it had been), but given who was in the Oval Office, and given what we saved (Chapter 19 dispute resolution panels will st...
Flawed Ford Logic On NWS Clause: Of all the scenarios out there where I’d envision a provincial government in Ontario invoking or trying to invoke Section 33 of the Charter (the “notwithstanding clause”) to override court decisions based on the Charter… a situation involving a BIll that shrinks municipal government in Toronto wa...

Why I am going to vote Yes in the referendum: Anyone who knows me will be shocked by the brevity of this piece. However, for me, it is pretty easy to see why the city of Calgary should move forward with the 2026 Olympic Bid. My argument is based on two facts: the precarious nature of WinSport’s finances and the need for the city to build inf...
On the Extremists in our Midst: “The Donald Trumps of the world, the Nigel Farages of the world — one can disagree with them, especially a conservative like myself can disagree with them on some things. But they are at least trying to fix what they see ails democratic, capitalist, market-oriented societies and my fear is if the...
 What does Alberta Future Look like?: In 2018, an Alberta Government Department ?? called Alberta Economic and Development and Trade developed a pamphlet. Entitled the ??2017 Highlights of the Alberta Economy?, it noted that Alberta had ??one of the world??s most productive agricultural economies, with a total farm area of 50....

Eating OFF the Hill: Perkins Bakery & Reasturant not worth the trip: When my famly moved back to Canada from a posting in Germany in 1990, we picked up the vehicle in Trenton and drove accoss the continent, through the U.S., to our new home in Comox. Staying in hotels for a week was good fun for a kid, as was having every meal in reasturants. I remember one of tho...
Eating OFF the Hill: Centretown Donair & Pizza: While I did sample several authentic Halifax donair while I was there last spring, word on the street was there's a place in Ottawa that offers the nearest thing you could get outside the Nova Scotia capital. So one weekend, rather than heading to Bank or Elgin in search of nourishment, I went we...

Governor-General, apologize: One month into her new job as Canada??s Governor General, Julie Payette is taking on fake news and bogus science.Payette was the keynote speaker at the ninth annual Canadian Science Policy Convention in Ottawa Wednesday night where she urged her friends and former colleagues to take responsibili...
Some thoughts on Naheed Nenshi's 3rd term win: Tonight's municipal elections in Alberta, which featured both excitement and utter boredom, also have some lessons in store for the various political parties out in Alberta and beyond.It's pretty obvious that the race between Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and main rival Bill Smith was a chance for ...

Canada is playing Russian Roulette in the Arctic: In the aftermath of Russia??s invasion of Georgia in 2008, Prime Minister Medvedev articulated a new Russian foreign Russian Nuclear Icebreaker policy doctrine with stunning implications. The phrase that caught international attention was Medvedev??s statement that Russia enjoyed a ??Sphere ...
Arseny Yatsenyuk and the Ukraine??s ??End Game??: Foxy Yatsenyuk could be a Ukrainian Hero I have started innumerable draft posts about Ukraine over the past few weeks, but there was little room for anything but speculation. The tensions and factors underlying the ??Crimean Crisis?? were pretty clear to see, but the interplay was too fast, a...

50 Meals to Fight Back Against Ford: Today I made a donation to the Daily Bread Food Bank. And I??ll tell you why. When I first got involved in politics, I thought political service should go hand-in-hand with community service. While a lot of good can come from government, you don??t have to be in government to make a real differ...
A Tale of Two Flags: Despite our nation??s love of Tim Hortons coffee and the game of hockey, or the frequency with which national animals such as caribou, beavers, or loons appear on our coinage, there is one Canadian symbol that outdoes all others in the level of recognition it finds around the globe: the Can...
