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...
Time to walk away from Trump, Ministers Freeland and PM Trudeau: Social media these days goes very fast, as you know from reading Twitter. BLogs can seem a bit slow in that respect. By the time I post this.. it may be outdated or overtaken by new events. That being said, this is an inflammatory a piece as you’ll ever see about Trump’s “off the record comments”...
Doug Ford & The Ontario PC Govt hates a carbon tax? Propose a climate change plan: So Ontario’s Environment Minister Rod Phillips met with Canadian Environment Minister Catherine Mckenna. Minister Phillips was rather defiant in his tweet about never accepting Canada’s carbon tax put on the province, while Minister Mckenna was much more diplomatic. The bottom line is:  Ontario h...

 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 50.3 million a...
My Politics is about Witnessing the Wrongs done to Others: I am grateful to a man that I have never met. I was first introduced to him by a good friend. She had grown up in a place that used to be named after him. That place today is called Lucan and it is a stone’s throw away from London, Ontario. That place was once named Wilberforce and founded by fre...
We should reform, amend or change government but we should never attack it.: When I was nineteen, I joined my first political campaign. In some ways, it was odd. For, while, I lived in a house that talked about the problems of the world, a house where the news was avidly watched, I had never thought about joining a political party. I just assumed I was a Federal Liberal. ...

Eating up the Hill: Piri piri chicken with corn on the cob & chips: As part of the Parliamentary Cafeteria's menu revitalization they've been introducing more ethnic dishes, or at least ethnic-inspired dishes. One of the new offerings fits this category: piri piri chicken with corn on the cob and chips.As a fan of Nando's, the Portugese chicken chain out of South...
Eating OFF the Hill: Pricy tacos at El Camino: I've been hearing I must try the tacos at El Camino for a few years now, and despite their Elgin Street locaiton being just down the street from me, I had never gotten around to making the trip. That changed this weekend, when I decided on a late taco dinner.Perhaps my delayed visit was due to su...

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 responsibility...
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 of Pri...
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, and R...

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 difference...
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 Canadian n...
