“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

WUN FEATHER -- Justin Trudeau thinks that by rehearsing everything he has to say that he comes across as intelligent


Our Elders have always said that when we are speaking to others, we must choose whether to use our minds or our hearts. Our minds are there to give us the power to solve our problems. And our hearts, which are more connected to the creator, are used to show compassion and understanding.

When I accidentally tuned in to a mainstream media channel and saw this guy on TV, I stopped scrolling long enough to watch what he had to say. I didn't really listen to him because I could tell that everything he was saying was rehearsed.

Many people will laugh when they read this, but those of us who have experienced what it is like to hear an Elder speak will agree with me.

We have a tendency to repeat ourselves. Most people think to themselves: "Here we go again!"  Elders go on and on and on...

Ha ha ... sorry.

But the reason Elders do that is because what they are saying to you is coming directly from their hearts. They have not had hours and hours to prepare speeches and rehearse what they are going to say to you.

When an Elder speaks, sometimes they make a few mistakes. Sometimes they repeat themselves, and sometimes they loose track of their main point because all of their life experiences conglomerate and they have to sort out or disseminate the information in their brains in order for the thoughts to flow from their hearts.

This Justin Trudeau guy thinks that by rehearsing everything he has to say, and by having all the media questions pre-sent to him ahead of time, that he comes across as intelligent.

But the opposite happens. Those of us watching him speak, can tell right away that he is just reading rehearsed lines. He is using his brain to try to solve problems instead of speaking to us from his heart. The problem is that his brain does not have very many life experiences to draw from, and so his thoughts are empty.

He can only repeat what others have told him to say.

He is not sincere.

Sadly, some Canadians cannot see through the charade.

As much as we have made fun of him in the past for saying "Uhm" and "Awe" before he spoke, that Justin Trudeau was more sincere.

This one is just a verbal marionette.

I wonder who is controlling his strings?


About Wun Feather:

I am one of the last of my generation to have actually attended residential and Indian day schools. I have lived on and off reserve and have seen the benefits and the hardships of my people in both situations.

My parents taught me that any time I fell down physically, or emotionally, I just needed to pick myself up, shake myself off, and continue in a forward direction. So, I cannot claim that I did it on my own; I had great Elders.

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
