“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 -- A Security Council seat entails limited power; chasing UN “prestige” is the road to ruin for Canada

A group of large frogs in a small puddle are convinced that their croaking can shake and shape world affairs. They rule with the haughtiness of anointed royalty, forgetting they are elected to and serve in a constitutional monarchy with serious constitutional obligations to Canada’s people.

This cadre within our federal government has its heart set on a seat on the UN Security Council and is spending billions in its efforts. Besides a squadron of bureaucrats campaigning full time on gaining a seat, the cadre is spending billions in foreign aid to enhance its image in UN ranks.

A Security Council seat entails limited power. Any resolution that Canada puts forward or supports can be vetoed by any of the big five members of the Council; it is a prestige position of very limited practical use for Canada or Canadians.

The same government has pronounced that global warming or climate change is the most important element of governance in Canada. Our economy, social well-being, deteriorating legal system, health care and high taxation levels are elbowed aside to appeasing the UN gods of climate change.

That would be less ludicrous if the government made any effort to verify the Professor Michael Mann's “hockey stick” calculations that underpin global warming hysteria, but they have not. Numerous prestigious scientists have tested Professor Mann’s calculations and find they are not credible.

In addition, the same scientists have tested climate change projection models and found them to be manipulated to produce results that are neither credible nor reasonable.

Finally, the reductions in carbon emissions that are alleged to slow, or halt climate change is a world-wide problem. All major emitters must reduce emission in lock-step for the plan to succeed. There is no evidence that nations are cooperating to reduce emissions.

World carbon emissions are increasing, not decreasing, and expected to hit 36.8 billion metric tons (40.6 billion U.S. tons) in 2019.

Canada, with an estimated 1.6% of world emissions or about 617.6 million metric tons is not a carbon threat. Even if we reduce our emissions by 20% to 494 MMT, the decrease of 123.5 MMT would have a negligible 0.3% (3/10 of 1%) effect on world emissions while the reduction risks driving us into a deep recession or probably a depression with an enormous impact on our standard of living.

We are risking economic security chasing an unachievable scheme.

Destroying our economy is the hidden agenda behind the UN global warming scheme and our government is a willing partner in the venture rather then standing up for Canada’s best interests.

We must return to behaving like the sovereign nation we are rather then chasing the United Nations globalist agenda. The UN is unelected and unaccountable, notable mostly for its failure to meet its mandate of keeping world peace.

That was the objective of forming the organization ... before it was taken over by dictators and tyrants representing the warring nations who have driven over 70 million people to leave their country of origin because of conflict, war or persecution.

Chasing UN “prestige” is the road to ruin for Canada.

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

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
