Today we're learning of the suspension of Jeremy Corbyn from the UK Labour Party caucus pending an investigation of his conduct regarding internal processes of handling incidents of antisemitism. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on the internal mechanisms of the Labour Party … Continue reading Every party should root out bigots in their ranks

As per party constitution, the NDP promptly selected a candidate, Brian Chang, a person who campaigned under the party banner in 2019 general election and finished a … Continue reading Green elitism on full display
It was inevitable that the BC Greens, mid leadership contest, would turn against themselves and what they signed up for by agreeing to the CASA deal that ousted the 16 year BC Liberal government in 2017. Where we're at is watching the Greens pick apart SiteC, the northern dam being constructed along the Peace River; … Continue reading Green leadership campaign brings out the odd
Between #defundpolice to cheering on the random vandalism against monuments and statues, the stupid-left is doing Trump's work for him. I'm not kidding either. #defundpolice I understood the #defundpolice 'movement' as a cry for help.

Some environmentalists have taken the movie as a knife in the back, or a slap in the face by Michael Moore. Some have gone so far as to call for its removal. I don't see it that way, and I don't think removing it will help; that amounts to green-censorship which will immediately backfire. What … Continue reading New movie Planet of the Humans is a wake up call
