“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

HERN: Asking men in leadership to set aside their egos, in the interest of a greater good, is an unlikely prospect -- it would require a miracle


At the risk of wasting my breath and my time, I want to express the following suggestion.

To have two right wing parties in Canada assures that Justin Trudeau will stay in power for another four years. Canada cannot afford this.

I believe that the Conservative Party of Canada made a mistake when they chose Andrew Sheer, rather than Maxime Bernier, as their party leader.  Andrew is a really nice man, and I would like him very much as a person, but not as the one hope of overthrowing the greatest threat to Canada since Justin’s father, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, held the reins.

I want to appeal to both Andrew and Maxime to please set aside your egos in
the interests of saving the country.

I have been listening for a clear voice from Andrew about the real harm that is being done to Canada each and every day ... I have not heard it.  Andrew, this is not the time for being “nice”.

Where has your voice been for instance on this signing away of our autonomy, as a nation, in order to secure a seat on the Council of the United Nations which is obviously Mr. Trudeau’s chief aim. He would sacrifice everything including the borders of Canada, and the financial well-being of the taxpayers of this nation in order to secure his “place in history”.

Perhaps you have spoken clearly and decisively about how the Conservative Party would get the pipeline built, without allowing First Nations to have a virtual veto over everything we do in Canada. If you have, I have not heard it.


These are only two of the areas where I feel that the voice of the Conservative Party of Canada, through the mouth of their leader has been muted.

Maxime, I don’t know you or your policies well, but your recent post about fighting for the pipelines in both French and English certainly appeals to me, and I think to many others.

You do seem to have courage to speak to the real needs of our country.  I hear a clear voice from you, Maxime – a forceful voice which has a chance to be heard throughout the country, but if we are listening to two voices disaster looms ahead.

I appeal to the members of the both parties – the Conservative Party of Canada ... and the Peoples Party of Canada -- to do what could never be expected.  I appeal to you as just one of many concerned Conservatives.  Please consider the possibility of a merger of the Conservative Party of Canada, and the People’s Party of Canada, in the interests of the country, rather than just individual interests.
   
I recognize that the chances of this happening are slim to nil, but if you men could act as true statesmen, we could win the next election. 

Neither of you can do it alone.
   
Sincerely ... a concerned citizen,
    Allen Hern

  1. It was obvious by the reaction of CPC members when Maxime made his announcement during their convention. Did they take the time to thoughtfully examine the charges he laid against the party? No. They were outraged and lashed out at the man's character. I washed my hands of them once and for all that day.

  2. I have never liked Maxime and was happy to see Andrew win the leadership. Since then things have changed. Today the Conservatives have become the middle-of-the-road party trying to please everyone. The PPC is refreshingly right-wing. I really like their platform! When I look at the differences of the two parties, I cannot believe the two will find common ground. Too bad because the split may indeed mea that the Liberals win again.

  3. I believe in miracles. But the ask here is to get Scheer to rescind telling Bernier that he did not speak for the party at any level, and that none of his ideas would be welcomed in the party platform. Scheer would have to put the proverbial toothpaste back into the tube. Unfortunately, more so for the CPC than for Canada, Scheer has been found wanting with empty tube in hand.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
