Canada has plentiful natural resources and a relatively small population of 35 million. Yet our government always claims it is short of money. Middle East countries are rich because of oil, but Canada has many other valuable natural resources. Why is our government so poor?

In 2001, Mulcair said: “In Quebec, the government is so omnipresent and plays in so many sandboxes at the same time that we can no longer speak of a free market."
The first letter of his surname has been distorted and made into an overarching awning which protects the surname, representing the public self or the professional self. In fact, some of the letters of the last name are tucked away, hidden beneath that dominant arcade, as if tucked away from public view. What do we know about Bill Cosby's private life?

Canadian conservatives today cast admiring looks back at the career and accomplishments of Margaret Thatcher. But to her, Canadian conservatives were mostly all wet. Britain was not Canada, then or now. While the mother country's ties still bind, Canadian conservatism is uniquely our own.

Margaret Thatcher, Great Britain's prime minister between 1979 and 1990, understood perhaps better than any other leader in the modern world, why governments ought not to have day-to-day control over the economic aspects of citizens' lives.

When a world leader dies, a lot of people take notice. Words of sympathy and praise flood in from all corners of the world while critics insist on reminding the masses of the deceased's missteps and b...
Thatcher was determined, driven, uncompromising, single-minded, outspoken, stubborn, intolerant, sharp, quick and unquestionably capable of evoking only intense emotions among her friends and enemies. And that's exactly why she was one of the greatest leaders of the past century.
Yes, it's morbid that from time to time, I make my living from a product that is derived from someone's death. When someone of note, whether political or cultural, is close to death or has died, I often feel like a vulture, sitting on a fencepost, waiting to take advantage of the situation. It's not a great feeling. And it's very difficult to be genuine and not come across as maudlin.
Exploiting society's most vulnerable citizens, the modus operandi of revenue-generating gambling, is regressive taxation. Gambling is a gateway drug; a city that enables and promotes it violates basic principles of conservatism -- notably, to draw on evidence from other jurisdictions, and to put social problems to heel before they reach metastasis.

Love her or loathe her -- as many did -- there is little doubt that Margaret Thatcher was the dominant political, social, economic and cultural force in Britain during the latter half of the last century. Significantly, it is those who revere "freedom" who most miss Mrs. Thatcher. Not for nothing was she known as the "Iron Lady." Sadly, there is no Margaret Thatcher on the political horizon today. Would that there were. Now she is gone. Dead at age 87 from a stroke, we are told. We are unlikely to see her like again.
The death today of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has caused an outpouring of reactions, but very few of them would be positive from the music world. "She was only a grocer's daughter...
But today, I'm waxing wrathful about TV networks and stations that mutilate innocent and often brilliant programs and, quite simply, by doing so steal our money. Specifically VisionTV -- which calls itself "the World's only national multi-faith and multi-cultural television service."

There are those who think -- and I am one of them -- that Maggie Thatcher rates as Britain's greatest PM of the past century. Perhaps the greatest ever. Conventional wisdom would side with Churchill in that role, but he was a wartime leader who saved his country from Hitler.
