Paying the Bagpiper
Few are more familiar with stealth that our own prime minister, Steve Harper. He's a master at incrementalism, the dark art of achieving unacceptable goals by a succession of steps, so small and seemingly innocuous that no one really no ... [read more]
Could America Break Its Own Bank on a Russian Anvil?
The sanctions being plastered on Russia by the US and her allies are already having a rebound effect, especially in Europe.  Russia is not only the major supplier of the natural gas the Europeans will need to get through this winter, it ... [read more]

In Tuesday’s Sun: why Kathleen Wynne should be Prime Minister
So, 1,200 of your family, friends and neighbours are murdered, or go missing. Would you be upset? How about this: the murders and the disappearances have been going on, unchecked, since 1980. Is that upsetting? No? Then, let’s say you g ... [read more]
Interview w/Jennifer Stebbing – Flamborough-Glanbrook

The shifting sands of Quebec federal politics.
It is important to listen when the Toronto Star’s Chantal Hébert discusses what is happening politically in Quebec. You sometimes get the impression that she is so caught up with the nuances of the Quebec angst that she fails to open he ... [read more]
What, to the Visible Minority, is Labour Day?
You wouldn’t know it from the tone of discourse today, but immigrants and foreign workers have been part of the Canadian labour force since Confederation. Then, much as now, they were deemed a "necessary evil" for Canada’s economic surv ... [read more]
Into the wild
The movies I love the most, as Lisa or my kids or family might tell you, are movies like Castaway, Life of Pi, All Is Lost, Open Water, and Into The Wild. Which might suggest that, were it not for the ones I love, I’d be gone, baby, gon ... [read more]

A Stranger Rolled In
After playing Betrayal at the House on the Hill last night I started to think about other genres that could be adapted to the build-the-board-as-you-play mechanic. The western genre is rich with possibilities for this sort of game. [read more]
The Coldest-Ever Cold War?
When I stumbled across a report yesterday about NATO raising a 10,000 strong, standing "expeditionary force" and that Canada was interested in contributing soldiers, I thought, "oh Jeebus, not again." [read more]
Why would you force people to vote?
It is one of those silly ideas that surface every once in a while. Someone notices how low the turnout of voters is at elections. They get all concerned and say, “We must get more people to vote.” Why? Some even suggest that there shoul ... [read more]

Betrayal at House on the Hill
Mike, Sean and Jeff came over to try out three new board games: Archer, Legendary, and Betrayal at House on the Hill (above). Of the three I'd say Archer, while amusing, has the simplest game mechanic and the lowest replay value, but it ... [read more]

NB Adult Autism Residential Care Facility Needed: "It Is More Than Overdue" "When Will They Ever Learn?"

Remember, It's the IPCC and It Can Never Tell the Whole Truth
The oft-maligned Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change is, admittedly, something of a strange bird.  It doesn't conduct climate change research.  It merely collects the research undertaken by universities, government agencies and N ... [read more]

Twerps On A Plane
Once again a plane intended to ferry party-animal Canadians to a booze soaked week in the tropics, has “had” to turn back to Toronto. No, planes don’t have to go back if there is a drunk on board. They have jail cells wherever the plane ... [read more]

To Inquire, or Not To Inquire, Don’t Ask The Question
The latest Coyne article seems to be self defeating in its thesis. “It’s not evident what contribution another public inquiry would make,” opines Coyne. For one thing, we could have an inquiry to demonstrate that for Coyne. Or we could ... [read more]
