The Liberal Party has bungled SNC-Lavalin terribly.: I can’t say I agree with much of my Liberal social media/blogger colleagues who are thinking this is a great thing that former Cabinet Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott got booted over their dissent as to how SNC Lavalin was being handled and the pressure being sent JWR’s way to gi...
Checking in on the US Democratic contenders for President: So it’s getting to that time where everyone is declaring they’re running for president in the US – the election of course is in November 2020… and politics always is in overdrive south of the border – but even more-so with the tumultuous election and reign of Donald Trump.  The fact there are so ...
Doug Ford backs down on attacking Greenbelt protections.: It appears that there was a lot of blowback to this plan over the Christmas holidays to Conservative MPP’s. Good – it was a terrible idea: The Ford government is scrapping a controversial plan that would have allowed municipalities to opt out of some provincial planning rules to attract new comme...

The Day After: the Argument for a Third Party in Alberta and a call for its Big Idea: For me, Jason Kenney’s victory is something new and novel to Alberta. Think about it this way, from 1935 to 2008, Alberta had always had a variety of conservative parties. When Social Credit was in power, they had to fend off the Progressive Conservatives. For the Progressive Conservative Party o...
In defence of Alberta, Decarbonisation and an Intelligent Transition to a Different Future: Many good-willed environmentalists have made the argument that Alberta would be better if it left all of its bitumen in the ground. One of them replied to my last post. His name is Bill Malcolm. When it came to my notion that politicians should try to provide the most benefit to the most people, ...
In defense of Openness, Conciliation, Inclusiveness and Convincing: A few replies came in due to my last post and I was surprised by their disturbing tone and how some of them were laced with a sort of anger and/or a resort to partisanship, ideology or intransigence.   There is an old saying: “one gathers more flies with honey than with vinegar”. The same notion ...

Eating off the Hill: Berlin streetfood comes to Ottawa with Wolf Down: Ottawa is the town where shawarma is king. Don't believe me? We have Shawarma King and Shawarma's King within a few blocks of each other -- yes, two different reasturants. Ottawa has a new challenger though for meat sandwich supremacy -- ironically, nearly across the street from Shawarma King -- ...
Eating off the Hill: Wild Pacific sockeye salmon at Avenue Bistro in Comox: I mentioned in my last review that the last time I had risotto, it wasn't that great. However, the salmon was excellent, which brings me to my post-Christmas dinner at Avenue Bistro in Comox, when I was back in British Columbia for the holidays.Formerly the Jolly Giant convenience store, the spac...

Why I'm joining the Green Party of Canada: Last night, I made one of the hardest decisions in my life. I made the choice to leave the Liberal Party, and will join with the Greens for the October 2019 election.That statement alone has a lot of privilege within it, which I recognize - there are a lot worse things in life to deal with than s...
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...

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...
