Real Warships, Real Icebreakers…

Real Warships, Real Icebreakers…

Another interesting read from Liberal Senator Colin Kenny in Monday’s National Post. Canada is down to two antique destroyers, 12 middle-aged frigates and one active submarine, with two more promised sometime soon. That’s what is available to defend a nation of slightly less than 10 million square kilometres, largely surrounded by water. Official navy documents […]

Time to smack the EU hard…?

Time to smack the EU hard…?

Like many people, I would like to see the European Union break up. The EU seems dedicated to stifling democracy and drowning people in red tape. The latest jackboot move from the EU bureaucracy is an airline carbon tax. And it just might start a global trade war. The state-run Xinhua News Agency, which acts […]

Time to breakup Pakistan…?

Time to breakup Pakistan…?

I first read an article proposing this back in May by Lawrence Solomon. Instead, the West should recognize that the muddle it faces stems from Pakistan’s internal contradictions. This is not one cohesive country but four entirely distinct nations, having little in common save their animosity toward one another, a predominantly Muslim faith and Britain’s […]

Great news! – Canada to withdraw from Kyoto Protocol…

It’s a great day to be a Canadian! I’m very proud to announce that Canada is going to withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol. Lets be clear dear reader, the Kyoto Protocol is an utterly stupid treaty. It’s the economic equivalent of taking a loaded gun, placing it at Canada’s head and pulling the trigger. If […]

Elizabeth May – Canada “just as awful as we always seem”…

Sigh! If you were putting together a Top 10 list of the most uninformed Canadians, Elizabeth May would be on that list. The Green Party leader and Member of Parliament wants people to pay attention to her. How does she get that attention? She travels to the Climate Scam conference in Durban and bashes Canada. […]

China’s resource greed…

China’s resource greed…

Near the end of November I was going to post an item about Iceland rejecting a Chinese “investor’s” offer to buy a chunk of Iceland. Iceland has blocked a Chinese billionaire’s bid to buy 300 square kilometres of wild heathland following concerns that the vast land sale would give Beijing a strategic foothold in the […]

In less than four minutes, Rex lays a masterful smackdown of leftwing climate stupidity. Bravo! Rex.

McKenna lays out a path for Canada to move forward…

Right at the end Tuesday evening I came across an interesting article by Frank McKenna. It deals with how Canada needs to respond to the delay in the Keystone XL pipeline. I can agree with pretty much all that he is putting forward here. I would like to see more bitumen in kind since this […]

The religion of man-made global warming…

I’ve come across a few mentions of a fine column by Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal. Consider the case of global warming, another system of doomsaying prophecy and faith in things unseen. As with religion, it is presided over by a caste of spectacularly unattractive people pretending to an obscure form of knowledge […]

Armstrong declares US space program – ‘embarrassing’…

Both the first and last men to walk on the Moon spoke in Washington on Thursday. Neil Armstrong from Apollo 11… “We will have no American access to, and return from, low Earth orbit and the International Space Station for an unpredictable length of time in the future,” Armstrong told the House Committee on Science, […]
