“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 – Why is Chuck Strahl misleading members of the Conservative Party of Canada

UPDATE --- I have been just advised as to why there is a  discrepancy in polling results, noted in my original post from this morning:

" ... the official poll cited by Chuck Strahl is the one taken by Zoom after the debate, so that poll is of the people who actually watched it.

The polls cited by VanC were conducted on Twitter, so only people with Twitter accounts answered that, and ANYONE on Twitter could answer that.

So much as I love Dr. Lewis, the article you linked to is fake news, and Chuck Strahl is not a liar. He is citing the more accurate poll ..."

STILL ... it is a shame that there was not clarity provided as to when and how the pol was taken and conducted ... Alan

WHY IS CHUCK STRAHL, a supporter of Erin O'Toole in the campaign to become leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, misleading members of the party?


This morning I received an email from him, sent out by the O'Toole campaign. In the email Strahl

indicated that prior to the BC EDA debate on Tuesday, that Erin and Leslyn were tied at 33% support amongst viewers.

HOWEVER ... he then claimed that after the d
ebate, support had changed with viewers giving O'Toole 37% support compared to 26% support for Dr, Leslyn Lewis (see attached screen shot from the email I received at 8:22am this morning).


THAT IS NOT TRUE as you can see in the screenshot image of a Tweet by the Vancouver Centre EDA. It show that Leslyn Lewis was clearly the winner coming out with 45.5% of debate viewers indicating she had won.


Even Tweets by Vivian Krause and one by the Post Millennial had Leslyn Lewis winning the debate.

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
