“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 train has left the station and is on a long downhill slope. As long as Trudeau governs, the train cannot be slowed

The Trudeau Liberals potentially wasted up to $22 billion dollars of their $80 billion pandemic health spending due to a lack of "adequate targeting" of those in need, a new study by the Fraser Institute claims.

“Our research shows that billions are being borrowed to finance transfers to people whose need is at least questionable, and this at a time when Ottawa is running historic deficits,” said Jason Clemens, Executive Vice President at the Fraser Institute.

The audacity and incompetence are stupefying. No wonder Bill Morneau bailed. The study does not address the tens of thousands who did not qualify for the various programs rolled out or those who have lost savings and investments in businesses that will not recover from the lengthy shut-down and ridiculous regulations on reopening.

Our government has destroyed the service sector, and the tens of thousands of people employed there have nowhere to go to find employment. Worse, the uncertainty of a government without a coherent plan for rebuilding our economy creates insecurity that prohibits new investments.

Governments are incapable of managing a capitalist system. We need governments that will create a business climate where entrepreneurship can thrive. That means a minimum of regulations, much less red tape, and efficient support services.

As part of the WE charity scandal investigations, the government released about 5,000 pages of relevant documents! On one program contract that should never have been undertaken and is under investigation by the Ethics Commissioner and the RCMP.

The Trans-Mountain debacle, SNC-Lavalin scandal, the Admiral Norman scandal and the WE charity scandal cause investors to avoid Canada. Warren Buffet has decided investments in Canada are too risky for him. There is nothing that the Trudeau government can do to regain investor confidence.

Our illogical and unpredictable Prime Minister cannot convince anyone that he and his extensive group of insiders will not destroy the best-laid plans of the entrepreneurs we desperately need to get Canada back on its feet.

Investors look at the track record of the builders and creators. Trans-Canada had the reputation for attracting $12 billion in investments for its Canada East pipeline.

When Trudeau created environmental regulations that made approval impossible, Trans-Canada threw in the towel, and investors fled.

The price Canadians are paying for Trudeau’s illusions of grandeur are the loss of our civil rights and freedoms along with a steadily declining standard of living that is going to accelerate over the next decade. The proportion of our society living in poverty is going to increase as we sink from depression into a recession.

The train has left the station and is on a long downhill slope. As long as Trudeau governs, the train cannot be slowed.

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
