"Hoodwinked" - I can't wait to see this ...

I have been waiting for the truth to come out.

I was part of this original battle and left the PC Party over the outcome.

See more here.

I strongly encourage all Loyal Canadians to see this Documentary.

I hate to ever say it is too late, but I really believe that we are at the Eleventh Hour in terms of this crisis. And no matter what else you may say about this, the fact that John Turner (a right-wing Liberal) was the only major politician who took the time to read the FTA, is quite chilling - and quite true.

I was there kids, and it was Mulroney's blind faith in Commerce and Simon Riesman that trumped any concern for Canada and our Sovereignty. It was always my impression that Brian Mulroney had a Quebecker's view of Canadian Sovereignty, and it was this "small-c" cavalier attitude that eventually turned me off. He was just not passionate about Canada. At least not in terms that were traditionally & classically conservative.

And before all you Liberals get indignant about this issue ...


Jean Chretien maintained and extended the FTA into a even broader and more comprehensive trade regime. The Liberals - post-Turner - did NOTHING about this.

The Case for the War in Afghanistan ...

is proven once again here.

Should we really abandon these people to the Taliban ? Which is essentially what the anti-Afghanistan movement wants ...

In a related note, it appears that the Iraq War continues to go badly for the US, which is not surprising as that conflict is NOT about fighting terrorism. Catch the winds of change here.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are two separate things. Canada and New Zealand are right in being in Afghanistan and right again in not participating in Iraq.

The end of a sad reign ...

The harsh wind from the west is finally abating.

Canada wins relief from bufoonery as of this day ...

I have never seen such strident megalomania in public life, and remember, I was there during the Mulroney years. I can also say that I have never seen one public figure take the credit for something so way beyond his control (the Oil Boom), and milk it over and over and over.

This man was a detriment to national unity and a destroyer of federalism.

No Peter Lougheed he ...

Good Riddance I Say.

Vindication ! Not that any of us are surprised ...

It appears that the US has finally concluded that Saddam Hussein had NO (I repeat NO ...) ties to Al-Qaeda. Check out the News here

I was a fierce opponent of almost all the things that Jean Chretien did (over his career); yet I supported his decision not to join the "Coalition of the Willing" in Iraq.

I am for the War on Terror and think that it should be conducted in Afghanistan - and covertly applied against other regimes. I am against the War in Iraq however, and have been since Day One.

ANYONE who knows the politics of the Middle-East knew that Hussein and Al-Qaeda were fundamentally like "oil and water," and that any attempt at linking them was not only preposterous, but an obvious lie as well.

What a waste of men, resources, tactics and strategy. More dangerously, it has created a false link between the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in the public mind - and THAT could have a deleterious effect on long-term National Security.

In what WWII Army should you have fought ?

This is a neat quiz.

I scored almost equally for the Polish Army and the British and Commonwealth Armies, with the distinguishing marker being my willingness to fight the enemy even after defeat and occupation - something the Empire would have done, but through God's Grace, never had to actually undertake.

Take the quiz here

And please tell us how you scored.
