“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 -- Our freedoms are not negotiable. We will not return to the rule of kings no matter what Carney chooses to call it


What Carney ultimately wants is a technocratic dictatorship justified by climate alarmism   Peter Foster / National Post / Jun 05, 2021

In his book Value(s): Building a Better World for All, Mark Carney, former Governor both of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, claims that western society is morally rotten, and that it has been corrupted by capitalism, which has brought about a “climate emergency” that threatens life on earth. This, he claims, requires rigid controls on personal freedom, industry and corporate funding.

Carney’s views are important because he is UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance. He is also an adviser both to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the next big climate conference in Glasgow, and to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ...

Mr. Carney is an academic and bureaucrat, graduating from Harvard in 1988, then on to the University of Oxford at St Peter’s college and Neufeld college, where he receives a master’s degree (1993) and doctoral degree (1995). He joined Goldman Sachs in 1990 and spent 13 years with the firm.

In 2003 he joined the Bank of Canada and, in 2004, became an associate Deputy Minister of Finance.

In 2007, Carney was appointed Governor of the Bank of Canada. In 2012, Carney was appointed Governor of the Bank of England.

In 2020, Carney was appointed as United Nations special envoy for climate action and finance and was appointed vice-chairman at Brookfield Asset Management. He leads the firm’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) and impact fund investment strategy.

Carney has never been elected or been held accountable for anything. He has never raised capital to start a business or met a payroll but claims that he will do a better job of running Canada than we can.

The financial crisis we endure was caused by politicians flailing about trying to contain the spread of a virus and failing. Their tactics put severe stress on the small business sector, which is the primary engine of our economy and our largest employer by far.

Canada was built by people determined to live in a democracy under the rule of law where persons could exercise inalienable rights and freedoms.

Freedoms and rights carry with them accountability and responsibility. We have the right to be wrong, and if we make poor choices, we suffer the consequences. Our freedoms are not negotiable. We will not return to the rule of kings no matter what Carney chooses to call it.

Instead of studying Karl Marx (1818 – 1883), Fredrick Engels (1820 – 1895), and Vladimir Lenin (1870 – 1924), he might read through the history of the Magna Carta (1215 - present). We are not about to toss away 806 years of development of British common law because Mr. Carney feels we have too many freedoms, and he wants to control us.

When Mr. Carney and his lot show us they can exercise control over China or Russia, we will give them a hearing. Approaching us with a discredited climate change scam indicates defective analytical abilities.

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

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
