Thinkers are Thankers and Thankers are Voters
On the heels of “another Thanksgiving dinner that couldn’t be beat”, I’ve been thinking about how thankful we all should be that we live in a country blessed by God with so many rich natural resources, so many gifted human resources and so many opportunities for citizens to express themselves—through writing, art, music, entrepreneurship and business development, etc. On top of all that, we also have the right to vote. And, for this, we are truly thankful. It is a privilege many of our brothers…
Don’t Talk While I’m Interrupting!
Democracy is a good deal better than dictatorship. At least our ancestors thought so and many died so that we could enjoy the privileges of citizenship in a democratic nation where most decisions are a group effort and national direction is guided in large part at the ballot box. The possibility, however, of maintaining a civilized society depends also on the moral character of those who make the rules and that of those who vote them in. Democracy can be defined by regulation but enacting laws…
And So It Begins…
Since becoming a Christian in 1976, I have understood that persecution of Christians would one day come to Canada.
Much Ado About Duffy
When people refer to the “news networks,” they’re being generous. They are networks but the “news” is still whatever the editors, publishers, and producers want the voting public to think about. Over the past several weeks, Canadians have been tormented with endless regurgitations from the Mike Duffy trial. Those who want the Harper government to fall—including most of the admittedly left-wing media as well as the obvious parties in the best position to benefit, the Liberals and NDP—have done…
Writ Large: the 2015 General Election from Month to Month to Month
Since the major national media forgot to call the leader of the Christian Heritage Party to ask my opinion about what will be one of the longest election campaigns in Canadian history, I am offering this public response to the unnecessarily premature launch of Election 2015. Now that the campaign has begun, our candidates will be getting out on the streets and up to the doorsteps across this nation to tell voters about Canada’s only federal pro-life, pro-family, common-sense, small-government,…
CHP Leader Calls on Harper to Protect Children From Radical Bureaucrats
Responding to yesterday’s announcement that Health Canada has approved the controversial abortifacient drug RU-486 (mifepristone), Christian Heritage Party leader, Rod Taylor, says it’s time for Prime Minister Harper and Health Minister Rona Ambrose to rein in bureaucrats who are implementing a radical social agenda with the apparent consent or approval of the government.
Harper Settles for Tripoli Senate
If you can’t get what you want, change what you want. That seems to be one way of redefining success. For years in the early days of the Reform Party and “The West Wants In!” campaign, Stephen Harper and his fellow reformers talked about smaller government and other reforms to make Canadian government more responsive and democratic. One of those goals shouted from the unrepresented hinterlands and spoken boldly from the Opposition benches is now more of a wish-list thing…that is, a reformed…
