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...
Merry Christmas 2018!: Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope you have a great holiday!

On Alberta, West Virginia and a conversation about Oil: We often forget how quickly technology can move. While, Benz developed his first car in 1885; it was the development of Henry Ford’s Model T and his new innovative manufacturing techniques, in 1913, that helped to reshape the United States. By 1927, a total of just over 15 million Model Ts had be...
Why do we need politicians and statesman?: It used to be hard to argue that politicians provide any value. In the past, one could easily point to the good that great statesmen did. One could point to Abraham Lincoln, Sir John A. MacDonald, Rt. Hon. Pierre Elliot Trudeau, Peter Lougheed, Churchill or FDR. One could argue that these men bui...
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...

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...
Eating off the Hill: Come to the Canadian Club for the economy discussion, stay for the baked salmon: My friend Danielle had an extra ticket for a Canadian Club luncheon last week and, knowing I'm someone who tries to luncheon on a daily basis, she invited me along. It was a snowy day, but lunch awaited to off to the Chateau Laurier I went.The discussion was on the economy, moderated by Canadian ...

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...
