“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

FORSETH: It shows, once again, that political parties are run by a select few at the top, with little influence by rank and file members

Regrettably, at least in my opinion, a hatchet job was done on Andrew Scheer, to force him from his role as leader of Conservative Party of Canada.
I too, like many others, was disappointed at the results of Octobers federal election, and I also believed that those who were in charge of the direction and tone of the campaign, did a poor job of forming a response to questions of Scheer’s personal beliefs, versus those the party would govern by if elected. 

Yes, I know it’s easy to be an armchair quarterback,, but the results of the campaign speak for themselves – another term for the Liberals for as long as their minority government lasts.

The fact that underhanded maneuvering, by some at the top, forced Andrew Scheer to set in place a new leadership campaign is, to say the least, disappointing.

It shows, once again, that political parties are run by a select few at the top, with little influence by rank and file members. Regardless, the die has been cast, and this is where things now sit for the Conservatives. 

In a message to party members this morning, about the up-coming leadership election, Andrew Scheer stated;

As our party begins to embark on this exciting opportunity, electing a new leader, my only ask to my fellow Conservatives is this: we must stay united. 

Our Conservative team is always stronger when we are united. When fiscal conservatives, red Tories, social conservatives, libertarians, Quebec nationalists, conservatives in rural Canada and urban Canada, and east and west come together, great things happen. 

Only by staying united can we deliver a strong Conservative majority government that can unite our country and make life better for all Canadians, for the oil worker out of a job, for the senior who is choosing between heating and eating, and for Canada’s position on the world stage. 

And in a class act, he also noted; 

I believe in this party. I believe in our movement. I believe that we will be the government after the next election.

PLEASE ... no more talk of Christy Clark
as a possible leadership candidate!!!
And furthermore, that; 

Whoever the hundreds of thousands of Conservatives across this country choose to lead our party into the next election, that person will have my 100 percent support.

Let the race begin, and let the people who wish to lead the party truly express, and articulate, their vision for the future of the Conservatives. 

I know it’s a long-shot it would ever happen, however, please ... Please ... PLEASE ... can we end any further talk of Christy Clark as a potential leader!

Thousands, myself included, will tear up our membership cards, in disgust, should she ever run and win!

KURT PEATS: Does Somebody Have to Die Before the Cops do Something? ... or ... Why Don’t You Go and Catch Some Real Criminals?

We live in a topsy-turvy world.     Watching the evening news simply confirms that the chimpanzees are indeed in charge of guarding the bananas.   I’ve been a police officer for a quarter of a century and have been called upon to try and settle disputes that took many years to develop.   In fact, most disputes are far more complex than what a 30-second sound bite can possibly convey.     Did you ever wonder why the cops didn’t act when it is blatantly obvious that a person or a group of persons were breaking the law ?    The job of the police is complicated at the best of times. The officer is called upon to deal with both criminal and civil matters, and sometimes these matters are occurring simultaneously.    On a Saturday night, after dealing with the mud, the blood and the beer, (the criminal law side of the house), the officer will eventually deal with the ensuing family break-up, child custody issues (the civil law side of the house) and the like.

TODD STONE -- I have decided that I will not be a candidate to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party at this time

  The past few months have been a difficult time for our party. Following the resignation of our former leader, I have been carefully considering whether this was the right time for me to once again put my name forward for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party.   I focused on building out a core team and engaged with hundreds of British Columbians. A talented, growing campaign team, a strong fundraising group, and supporters in every corner of the province were at the ready to formally launch a campaign.   However, after spending the holidays with my family carefully weighing the decision, I have decided that I will not be a candidate to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party at this time.   Life’s most important decisions are those made with your heart. I am forever grateful for the support Chantelle and our three daughters have provided me throughout my political career. But it was driven home to me recently that my daughters don’t know a time when their dad wasn’t

Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers says the natural gas and oil industry can be a foundation for national economic recovery

  On the good news front for 2021, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is forecasting a 14 per cent increase in upstream natural gas and oil investment in 2021 – an expected increase of $3.36 billion this year, reaching $27.3 billion.   The planned investment for 2021, while increasing from the lowest levels in more than a decade, would halt the dramatic decline seen since 2014, when investment sat at $81 billion. This year’s forecast represents a stabilizing of industry investment and the beginning of a longer-term economic recovery.   The additional spending is primarily focused in Alberta and British Columbia, while numbers in Saskatchewan show modest improvement and offshore investment in Atlantic Canada is expected to remain relatively stable compared to 2020.   Stated Tim McMillan, President and CEO of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers: “ It is a positive sign to see capital investment numbers moving up from the record lows of 202
