“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 -- This government has replaced safety and security with anxiety, fear and uncertainty



To build back better, we must reinvent capitalism ...

The pandemic has brought into focus many of the vulnerabilities in our systems and institutions.  But it also offers us a chance to shape a more resilient and sustainable world.

Here's how businesses and policy-makers can start building the green and inclusive future we need .....

We are to believe that by destroying capitalism that we can rebuild a more robust capitalism? Let's have these chaps share a little of whatever they are imbibing.

First, they convince our governments that the only way to combat a virus epidemic is to quarantine the entire population for an extended period. Most of the nation shut down with devastating effects on our economy, personal health and well-being.

Efforts to provide income replacement for people forced out of their livelihoods have been deliberately overly complicated, piecemeal and unfocused. Financial officers have spent hundreds of hours calculating and recalculating eligibility for wage subsidy programs with shifting regulations.

Never in history have democratic nations treated their populations as if they had neither rights nor freedoms. Stop and consider this for a moment. The World Health Organization's (WHO) approach to the COVID virus epidemic is a rejection of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Using the failed COVID epidemic response as an excuse for having incompetent idealists thrust a new economic order on us is disgusting. The notion that the World Economic Forum can concoct an economic model that will fit vastly different nations is ludicrous.

It is no accident that Justin Trudeau’s partner in crime, Gerald Butts, is heavily involved in this effort to subject us to the arbitrary rule of kings in place of democracy. We have to firmly and impolitely send Trudeau and his extended royal court off to the showers and allow others to make an honest attempt to bring order out of the chaos they have created.

The rule for the next election, which cannot come soon enough, is Do Not Re-elect (DNR).

There are a precious few Members of Parliament who have worked hard to rein in a corrupt, arrogant and failed government focused on image without substance. They have no coherent plan for bringing us the peace, order and good government demanded by our constitution.

This government has replaced safety and security with anxiety, fear and uncertainty.

If we refuse to re-elect incumbents, we stand a chance of rebuilding what they have taken from us – dignity, equality, freedoms, rights and security.

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

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
