Last night, my wife gave birth to my fourth daughter at Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary. A few hours before, standing in the triage room, I was treated to a spectacular panoramic view spanning Calgary’s downtown core through to Nose Hill Park, with the Rocky mountains in the distance, still visible over a cloudy sky. … More My Hopeful View Of The Future
A friend of mine on Facebook posed the question pointing out the nature of the Manchester bomber, which ISIS has claimed responsibility for. He highlighted that the bomber was a British national, born and raised in the UK, and that his parents were Libyan refugees. He posed the question: “How did a UK national, born … More How Did the Manchester Bomber Become Radicalized?
ZeroHedge had an interesting article titled: “China May Import Its Workers To Canada As It Seeks “Total Access” To Canadian Market” I think there’s more to this story than being discussed. China has a 10% male-female sex imbalance. Thanks to the One Child policy and Chinese cultural affinity for boys, the Chinese have been aborting/abandoning/throwing … More Why Canada Will Probably Have Another Chinese Head Tax
A consumer driven economy is one where economic activity and the exchange and transfer of wealth is primarily generated through the movement of consumer goods and services.

With Brian Jean’s recent announcement of an interest to merge the Wildrose Party with the Progressive Conservatives, I still believe Alberta Separatism is inevitable. However, at present, I do not believe Wildrose (or whatever is left, should a PC-merger become a reality) will be the agent of change that brings it about. Wildrose started out … More Populism and the Future of Western Separatism
I recently wrote a post describing how much oil Alberta has. It was well received but I felt it was too mean spirited, angry, inflammatory and did not reflect the tone and style I want for this blog. I also was not entirely sure about the accuracy of the information and decided to unpublish it … More How Much Oil Does Alberta Have? (Redux)
The best Alberta as a Canadian Province can hope for is a Canadian “solution” that will not solve anything. This was what I took away from the Rebel Media’s Calgary “Rally for Alberta.” While I applaud Ezra Levant and the Rebel for organizing the rally, I felt that underscoring the whole event was a misplaced … More When Will Canada Meet It’s End?
I recently discovered the online “Men Going Their Own Way” (or MGTOW) movement and am fascinated by it’s underlying tenants and philosophies. Essentially, MGTOW’s are men who have come to the realization traditional relationships with women fail a cost-benefit analysis, and they are better off “going their own way.” MGTOW’s do not court women with … More Westerners Going Their Own Way (WGTOW)
Following the Quebec Separatist Referendum of 1995, the leaders of Canada, Ontario, and Quebec struck up a deal whereby Ontario would pay Quebec to be a part of Canada. Thereon out, the policy of the Canadian government has been to do everything possible to keep Quebec in Canada. While transfer payments are the most obvious example … More Why The End of Canada is Inevitable
We in Alberta owe President Elect Donald Trump a great deal of thanks. It is excellent news that the Kinder Morgan pipeline and Enbridge Line 3 upgrade were approved by the Trudeau government but the reality is those approvals were entirely a consequence of the US Presidential Election. Energy and trade will be the two … More Thank You President Elect Trump for the Pipelines
