Jeff Paterson is a storyteller from Ottawa, ON.
Doug Ford and Andrew Scheer have been deemed heroes in their circles. Now it's just a matter of finding out what everyone else thinks.
How many people, let alone a soon-to-be 71-year-old who has a three-story $100 million dollar penthouse in his own building, do you know that would want to put up daily with what Trump does? I can't imagine if Drumph had a choice of two doors, one his old life and one this one, he'd stay in the present.

Police officers have begun wearing bracelets in support of Const. Daniel Montsion, an officer charged with manslaughter after an SUI investigation. We need to believe in everyone involved from the police, all the way up to the judges, are unbiased and out to do their jobs. This band, this in-your-face alliance around Montsion, doesn't do that.

It's a banner year for Saturday Night Live. The show has reaped every reward Donald Trump has given them. This past weekend

I'm not sure who is advising the Black Lives Matter Toronto chapter. Social justice should be about resolving issues that exist and preventing new ones from popping up. Regressive justice and the approach of BLMTO seems to be creating division. They're stepping on others and provoking controversy.

Back when the primaries kicked off, the trolls found a common hero in Trump. Someone on the outside the norm of the establishment, someone not taken seriously. Someone himself a master at getting reactions from making a single statement. I mean, that's the whole purpose of trolling, isn't it? Get people defensive and engage them to react with real emotions and sincerity.

This weekend, the NDP is meeting in Edmonton to decide their direction moving forward. Eugene Levy once complained about filming a season of SCTV in Edmonton because "It's Edmonton." While I'm sure it's a great city, this is a party who is dreading at the Big E. The election of the past year saw an early lead blown, notable key members of the party lose their seats in the House of Commons, and a third place finish for Tom Mulcair's rookie federal election run. As the NDP head to the Gateway to the North, it's time to begin paving the highway towards the future.

There's always been a back-and-forth in Canadian politics. Every few terms, the public would tire of either the Conservative

Justin Trudeau is about to head into the national Liberal leadership vote heavily ahead of the competition, with little changing since he first announced his running back in the fall. Below are several of the most often used reasons, and perhaps some perspective on addressing those reasons and hopefully alleviating some of the hesitation in supporting another Trudeau to right the ship and lead the new Liberals in the 2015 election.

This blog isn't about the history of the Dippers, the storied beginning of the New Democratic Party here in Canada and where we got to where we are today. This is more-so a heads-up for Mulcair to pack up his proverbial desk, give up the guise of being the leader of the NDP and go away.
