“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.

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
