“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

FELDSTED -- Canada stands out as a nation willing to limit economic growth and reduce her standard of living as a disciple of IPCC propaganda

From left to right, Justin Trudeau, Elizabeth May, Jagmeet Singh

The other day I was reading an article which held that since the federal NDP and Green parties endorsed action to combat climate change, and Justin Trudeau’s Liberals were committed to combating climate change, most electors had climate change as their primary issue in the past election.

I will give the authors an “A” for twisting reality to suit an agenda. The NDP and Greens can make any policy declaration they like. They will not govern and will never be held accountable for their positions.

The position of the Liberal party is neither rational nor reasonable. Man-made carbon emissions (anthropogenic carbon) are a worldwide problem requiring worldwide solutions. No nation can deal with anthropogenic carbon emissions on its own.

The spectre raised by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) requires that we measure the overall response of nations in combating emissions. We already know that most nations are not on track to meet Paris Accord reduction targets.

The Paris Accord was a failure before the ink was dry on the document.

The pretense that nations with moderate or low emissions can turn the tide of carbon emissions is silly. The major reason why many nations will not commit to the Paris agreement reductions is that they are not willing to wreck their economies to meet reduction targets.

Canada stands out as a nation willing to limit economic growth and reduce her standard of living as a disciple of IPCC propaganda. That virtue signalling that is harmful to the nation and her people.

Our governments refuse to admit that worldwide efforts to combat climate change are not working. Instead of turning our attention to how we can best deal with the effects of climate change, and minimize damage to our infrastructure and society, we are squandering our resources and future on efforts to limit world carbon emissions we cannot and will not achieve.

The cries that “Canada must do her part” are arrogant nonsense.

Canada, like other nations, must do what is best for Canada. Blind adherence to the questionable forecasts of the IPCC does not warrant undermining our economic engines or reducing our standard of living.

We don’t have a climate emergency ... we have a five-alarm fire raging in parliament.

Common sense, accountability, logic, reason and responsibility are under siege by irresponsible and reckless ideologues. That is our real emergency.

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

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
