“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 -- The ‘Clueless in Ottawa’ sitcom has worn out. Every promise this government has made lies shattered in the gutter


I glanced at a news feed, early yesterday afternoon, and noted that the Throne Speech would be televised live this afternoon.


My reaction was – who cares? I will not watch it.

Today’s speech will be an ultimate in desperation. Trudeau and his minions have nothing of interest to say.


They shut down parliament for six months, and as that was not enough, they prorogued the shreds left on August 18th.


If they expect cheers when they return, they are mistaken.

Most of us would prefer that they stand down for another six months. The damage inflicted since mid-March is grotesque. There are millions of people unemployed, tens of thousands of businesses closed permanently, hundreds of thousands on the edge of bankruptcy, and our debt is enormous.

For our sake, please do no more harm. The “Clueless in Ottawa” sitcom has worn out. Every promise this government has made lies shattered in the gutter.

There is nothing Justin Trudeau can say that we can consider credible, reliable or trustworthy. His thoroughly corrupt, unethical lot of brigands cannot be believed. ...


... they are too busy with corrupt dealings with their corporate pals to rebuild a nation.

This irresponsible failure of a Prime Minister and his cohorts should be on their way to prison, not parliament.

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


I have just struggled through Cheryl Ashlie's column ( MacDuff’s Call: A political novice with a sizeable ego ), in the Sept. 22 edition of The Maple Ridge News. To say the least, Ashlie's comments are naive and show just how totally out of touch she has become with political reality. Ashlie lauds the decision of Darryl Plecas to accept John Horgan's invitation to become the Speaker of the House, a move described by almost everyone else as self-serving and a betrayal of the trust of the constituents who voted for him. Ashlie claims Plecas' turncoat move will help provide good governance but in making this claim, she fails to explain how he will achieve this lofty goal.
