Justin Trudeau touts parliamentary, electoral reform

Justin Trudeau touts parliamentary, electoral reform

Liberal leader promises 'more free votes' but offers fewer free votes For his first two years as Liberal leader, Justin Trudeau offered few specific policies and Canadians were largely left guessing what he would do on most policy files. Trudeau repeatedly stated he would liberalize Canada’s marijuana laws and in 2014 he issued a diktat that under his leadership no ... (Continue reading)

Patrick Brown at the PC leadership convention.

Two cheers for Patrick Brown

Before the last of the confetti had fallen on Patrick Brown’s victory celebration, political reporters had already filed their stories: another moral Neanderthal had ascended to the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario’s top spot. To judge from their reports, one might conclude that Brown, and his erstwhile rival, Monte McNaughton, spoke incessantly (and insensitively) about social conservative issues, with members of the press dutifully transmitting the messages of these candidates to the public in a fair, clear way.  Now ...

NDP win majority in Alberta, Wildrose also makes gains

After more than four decades in power, on May 5, the Alberta Progressive Conservative Party was reduced to third-party status with just 10 seats as the pro-abortion NDP won a 53-seat majority and the Wildrose Party surged to second place with 21 MLAs.

Brown the ‘clear choice’ in Ontario PC leadership race

Brown the ‘clear choice’ in Ontario PC leadership race

Monte McNaughton said that Patrick Brown shares his social conservative convictions, but also the best approach to party revitalization. While there was no risk of vote-splitting in the preferential ballot system, Monte McNaughton’s withdrawal leaves one social conservative in the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership race. On April 9, with about a month ... (Continue reading)

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

  The health and physical education curriculum for Ontario needed to be updated, but the manner and content of the “updating” has been dishonest and disrespectful toward parents. The process has been a continuation of the social engineering launched by this provincial government in 2008-2010 under then Education Minister Kathleen Wynne. Unhappy with the pace of implementation of its Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy the Liberal government amended the Education ... (Continue reading)

Trudeau praises abortion as most important development in Canadian history

Editor’s Note: On March 9, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau delivered a speech at a McGill Institute for the Study of Canada event in Toronto, titled, “Canadian Liberty and the Politics of Fear.” The media focused on his comparison of the Conservative government’s attitude toward Muslims with Canadian immigration policy in the 1930s and ‘40s that turned back Jewish refugees from Europe.

L-G-B-T, X-Y-Zee, now I know my ABCs

Sanders, Wynne and sex ed. When Mark Steyn alluded to Kathleen Wynne’s renewed attempt to smuggle her radical “sex education” curriculum into the elementary school classroom (I’d call it a hidden agenda, but only conservatives have hidden agendas), Indigo CEO Heather Reisman nearly fell off her hostess chair. Interrupting her interview with Steyn on his new book, Canada’s self-proclaimed Reader-in-Chief protested, “I’ve never heard of that.” ... (Continue reading)
