Thank you William. That about sums up Michael Ignatieff for if what Mr. Ignatieff said in the BBC is correct and in context (Quebec is headed for independence), he is a bigger idiot than I originally thought. Fortunately, this comes from the faux politician who turned down the Prime Ministership when handed to him and then went on to prognosticate that under his leadership, the federal Liberal Party will go on to great things. They had to settle for one of their greatest defeats barley hanging on to official party …
Over the weekend, the CBC ran an article on their website titled Challenger Jets’ True Cost Revealed. Besides the fact that the reporter’s calculations are wrong, it totally overshadows the purpose that the government has its own jets in the first place.
Regardless of who our elected officials are, they are elected by the public and they are there to provide and carry out some pretty important jobs. Beyond the obvious such as security, government is there to protect the rights of Canadians from foreign interests. The Canadian …
Paul Dewar for NDP leader. I would support that.
I’m often asked, outside the Conservative parties, who do I think are good politicians. Paul Dewar is usually one of my first responses. Why? Because he is exactly what he says he is; nothing more, nothing less – and I totally respect that.
Working under the shadows of two high profile politicians, his mom Marion Dewar and former NDP leader Ed Broadbent, Paul has cut his teeth on left wing politics. But if you met him and talked to him, you would learn …

Tens of thousands of Canadians have written to me in recent weeks to wish me well. I want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughtful, inspiring and often beautiful notes, cards and gifts. Your spirit and love have lit up my home, my spirit, and my determination.
Unfortunately my treatment has not worked out as I hoped. So I am giving this letter to my partner Olivia to share with you in the circumstance in which I cannot continue.
I recommend that Hull-Aylmer …
Sad news today about NDP leader Jack Layton. He was a fighter to the very end.
Many of us knew things were bad when In July when Jack stepped aside to take on up his second fight with cancer. The rapidity from the opening day of parliament (June 3) to that news conference on July 25 gave many of us concern about his prognosis. But he fought his personal fight the way that he fought his political fights; with grace and focus and determination.
You don’t have to agree with his politics …
Whatever the reason, the Canucks need to find the desire to win and find a strategy to make it so. Look at Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party. They wanted to win a majority so badly that anything less would be a failure. They were singularly focused on winning a majority. And so must the Canucks…win this last game no matter what.
And the game will come down to a mapped out winning strategy and the ability to stick to that winning game plan. In the last election, the polls constantly …

If you’re like me, every time you have to fill up with gas, it makes you cringe. When it’s costing me upwards of $90 to fill up my car, I can’t help but think of Dalton McGuinty. In one fell swoop, Premier McGuinty added 8% to the price of already high gas prices in Ontario which is about 9¢per per litre. My car takes 60 litres of gas so that’s $5.40 more in taxes every 5-7 days.
One has to remember that there is already a 10¢/litre federal excise tax and …

Lisa McLeod: “I know Stephen Harper & you sir are no Stephen Harper”. This is L-Mac’s response to a recent article in the London Free Press.
Ontario Liberals are definitely grabbing for straws in trying to paint their leader, Dalton McGuinty, like Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He’s more like the anti-Harper…
McGuinty always raises taxes when he can; Harper always lowers taxes when he can
McGuinty pretends to follow a green agenda and spends a lot of money to promote the …
I was rushing home from my meeting today because I wanted to write a blog about the Michael Ignatieff and the Liberals. It’s no secret that I had little faith in the federal Liberals capability to win an election and form a government. Ever since the Ignatieff turned down the opportunity to be prime minister and opted for opposition leader instead, I knew he and his “advisors” were not serious politicians.
In this election, all the Liberals had to do was to hold onto the seats that they had and to …
