I recently came across an international survey that measured how well people in various countries around the world knew their respective countries. The British and the Dutch know themselves and their countries extremely well, according to the survey results, but Canadians came in thirtieth – in other words, the vast majority of Canadians don’t know their country and by all rights should not be allowed to vote (as the 2015 federal elections amply demonstrated). I took the time to answer the survey questions and obtained a full score. Continue reading “Anchors aweigh, 2017 here we come!”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is doing his end-of-the-year tour, talking to the media about the year he’s had. But, spoiler alert, it’s not looking good, neither in the rear-view mirror nor in the crystal ball.
Canada’s Heritage Minister Mélanie Joy does not live in the real world with the rest of us. In fact, no Liberal knows anything about the real world, which is why we keep seeing such nonsense as “climate change” measures (and taxes on a phenomenon that does not even exist) or, quite recently, an attempt to do away with the time-honoured principle of doctor-patient confidentiality.
University students organize a fancy-dress party. The theme is costumes from different countries and regions. Photos of the party appear online, and the students at the party are immediately branded racists by typical lefties.
Andrew Coyne, the scion of a Liberal family, always refuses to admit that he is a Liberal, and that Justin Trudeau is his God, but virtually every column he writes (for which he is grossly unqualified and overpaid) betrays his true leanings – as does his most recent one, in which he argues in favour of a carbon tax in Canada (even if the United States does not adopt one) and an ever decreasing Canadian dollar.
I have come across a highly interesting article in an Austrian newspaper, which explains the root causes behind Brexit, Trump and future ‘revolutions of those left behind’.
The elites and their mouthpieces are making me laugh. There has been a drastic rise in the number of opinion columns recently that seem to promise Canadians, and the world, that Trumpism, Brexit, Front National, etc. cannot possibly happen in good and decent Canada. In fact, I see one such untruthful column at least once every day. Even The Economist recently published an unctuous encomium about Canada that contained only about 10 per cent of truth and fact.
I’m not a climate change denier. It’s a real phenomenon, but the one thing that isn’t true is that it is ‘man-made’. You want proof? I’ll give you proof: the fact that none of our global measures will reduce the planet’s temperature proves that ‘man’ has no control over climate. Scientists, too, have confirmed this: we could impose a Stone Age-like lifestyle on all of us, all over the world, yet the planet would continue getting warmer in the foreseeable future. And since our actions have no effect whatsoever, it follows that the phenomenon itself could not have been caused by anything we did or do either.
Last time I checked, this country here is Canada. It’s a western country and not a Muslim country. But thanks to our prime minister, Justin Trudeau, this may just have changed.
I have read some interesting news about what our Liberal government is planning to do in the near to medium term. An infrastructure bank is to be set up, for example, to coordinate and fund vital infrastructure projects across Canada.
