“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

So once more, in Donald Trumps eyes, we’re pulling our weight. Trump changes his mind more times than Justin Trudeau changes his socks

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Donald
Trump at NATO meeting on December 3rd

MAKE OF IT WHAT YOU WILL ... however, today Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with United States of America President Donald Trump.

According to the Prime Ministers Office, Trudeau and Trump reaffirmed their support for the new North American Free Trade Agreement which supports millions of jobs in Canada, the US, and Mexico. The two leaders welcomed the work towards its ratification in all three countries.

  • I have to wonder what’s talking so long to have three people sign a document already agreed to?  It’s no wonder nothing ever gets done, or at least its painfully slow, when it comes to governments at all levels

The Prime Minister and President discussed the importance of the NATO Alliance for international peace and security as well as the indispensable Canada - US partnership for the defense of North America. The President noted Canada’s contributions to NATO missions including in Iraq, Latvia, and Romania.

  • Oh so once more, in Donald Trumps eyes, we’re pulling our weight.  Trump changes his mind more times than Justin Trudeau changes his socks.

The two leaders also discussed relations with China ... 

The President agreed with Canada’s position on the ongoing arbitrary detention of two Canadians in China and said Canada and the US would continue to work on this together.

The Prime Minister and President agreed to keep in touch and to strengthen their close cooperation.

  • I’ll keep close eyes on Donald Trumps Twitter account to see how well that continues as it seems to change from day to day – or is it hour by hour?
I don't know about you, but some how I just don't feel confident about the long-term outcomes of much when Trudeau and Trump meet. Do you think Justin has the authority and power to influence Trump?

No? Well I didn't think so either.

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
