“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.

FELDSTED -- We need to divorce climate change from environmental preservation


Conservative delegates reject adding ‘climate change is real’ to the policy book. Delegates voted down green-friendly policies by a margin of 54 per cent to 46 (John Paul Tasker // CBC News // Mar 20, 2021)

Conservative delegates at the party’s policy convention have voted to reject adding green-friendly statements to the policy book — including a line that would have stated the party believes “climate change is real” and is “willing to act.”

Unfortunately, the Conservative Party failed to take the opportunity to introduce some reason and sense into the climate change and environment files.
Climate change is real. Climate patterns have been changing throughout our recorded history and continue to change. There is nothing wrong with acknowledging that.
However, the addition of the words: “and is willing to act” indicates that politicians can influence the degree and effects of climate change when we have no evidence that it is possible.

The same governments have failed to contain the spread of coronavirus. Despite months of huffing and puffing and tens of thousands of officious (and totalitarian) regulations, governments are praying tearfully that a vaccine will accomplish what they could not.
Conservatives sat on their hands and allowed the governing Liberals to declare that carbon is a pollutant when there is no evidence to support the notion. Without carbon, life on this plant will die.
The majority of Canadians strongly support preserving and protecting our air, land and water, which has nothing to do with climate change.
We need to divorce climate change from environmental preservation.
We cannot control climate change and are foolish to expend energy and funds attempting to do so. We need to assess how climate change affects us and prepare plans to mitigate the effects to the extent that we can.
We need to get strict with polluters, whether they are individuals or corporations. Those who foul our air, land and water should expect severe punishments. Those are not infinitely renewable resources.
We need a new debate on the effects of carbon on alleged global warming. The “science” supporting the original hypothesis has collapsed. There is no valid, peer-reviewed science to support a credible link between carbon emissions and global warming.
Decades of predicted rapid increases in global temperatures have not materialized. We embrace a legend little different from the flat earth science of centuries past.
People need clarity on these issues and open debate on how to move forward. Discussions on climate change and carbon emissions have been censored and stifled for decades and that has to end. We lost an opportunity to bring perspective and reason to these critical files.
Without some means to accurately measure the effects of carbon pricing (taxes) it is a scam. If carbon taxes do not produce a measurable result the government implementing them must resign.

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
