CBC, Ethics, and Redeemer University

The CBC has done some good investigative reporting. They broke the story of the WE scandal, for instance. They cover many issues of national importance. Sometimes, they dig deep into big questions, like the Governor General’s expenses and demeanour. But sometimes, they are a national embarrassment.

No Agreements Are Safe From Judicial Activism

​As Canada descends further down the road of judge-made law, a Federal Court judge has once again imposed her opinion on the country. After all, why shouldn’t an unelected judge change the rules for 37 million Canadians and their 338 elected MPs? We should be getting used to it by now. International agreements are not exempt from judicial tampering. A federal court has now declared Canada’s Safe Third Country Agreement with the United States to be “unconstitutional”. That’s code for “I don’t like this law; get rid of it”.

WE Scandal Highlights the PM’s Ethical Incoherence

​There are limits to public credulity and tolerance for blatantly reckless behaviour with public funds. The failed attempt by Prime Minister Trudeau to funnel $43.5 million of taxpayer money to his friends at the WE Charity Foundation fell outside those limits. The optics were bad. The amounts were staggering. The lies uttered to cover it up were appalling.

A Trillion in the Hole!

​Let’s talk about numbers—really, really big numbers. Let’s start with a number that most of us have never seen in our bank accounts—one million dollars. A million is one thousand thousands and it looks like this: $1,000,000.00

So-Cons and Faux-Cons Part Two

​If you think that liking the colour blue more than the colour red makes you a conservative, you might be a fan of Peter Mackay, Erin O’Toole, and a bunch of other faux-cons. But if you believe that principled stands on a wide range of issues are necessary to be considered a true conservative, you might be looking for other options.

By Fair Means or Foul, You Lose!

​“The True North strong and free” is in trouble. If Canadians stand up for our God-given rights, often called Charter rights, then we are bigots and bullies. If we grovel before the juggernaut that seeks to destroy the fabric of our society, we kiss our rights goodbye one by one.

Canada Day, 2020. . . I Miss My Country!

​I really miss the country I grew up in. It was called “Canada”. It wasn’t perfect, by a long shot; but it was ’way, ’way better than anything else I knew or had heard of.

What Matters Now

​Recent violent protests and riots in the US and around the world have focused on a particularly egregious example of what the protestors are calling “systemic racism”, particularly in police forces. The brutal killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin has been unfairly portrayed as a common occurrence in the US today and long threads are being drawn from this horrific event back to the days of slave markets and all that was repugnant about attitudes prevalent in the Deep South prior to the Civil Rights movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the last century.

Defund the Police? Why Not?

​#DefundthePolice is trending. Individuals and city councils are demanding radical changes — everything from disbanding police forces, to defunding them completely, to cutting their funding substantially. Why? Because of charges of racism and videos that show brutality committed by some police officers.

Shall We Surrender??

​Governments at all levels are allowing—and often imposing—the viewpoint that . . . truth is relative, what used to be wrong is now right, what was once considered sinful is now moral. . . and related nonsense they think our ears are itching to hear.

25,000 Wrongs Don’t Make a Right

​This past week, American cities were burning. At least 11 people have died in the riots, hundreds have been injured, thousands arrested. Untold millions of dollars of damage have been done to businesses. Dozens of law enforcement officers, including Secret Service officers have been injured. Vast crowds of rioters and looters masquerading as “social justice warriors” have turned downtown sectors of major American cities into ugly, “no-go” zones. Curfews have been routinely ignored. Police cars have been torched. The rule of law and respect for those enforcing the law seems to have vanished, at least from the point of view of the rampaging mobs.

Political Parties at the Public Trough Again: Buying Your Vote With Your Money

​Yet one more display of self-serving behaviour by parties with MPs in the House. Four federal political parties—the Liberals, the Conservatives, the NDP and the Greens—are helping themselves to yet more taxpayer money . . . while the very taxpayers they claim to represent are having to tighten their belts.
