Here comes 2017 – again?

In my latest National Post column I argue that while history doesn’t repeat, its lessons do… especially for those not paying attention.

(Due to an editing mishap, at the end of the 3rd paragraph, between the sentence ending “great and small.” and the one beginning “Regrettably, as with…”, the sentence “But I am sure we’re not going to fight World War One again.” was omitted.)

Canadian values in a troubled world

In my latest National Post column I argue that the horrifying fate of Aleppo reminds us that things are better in Canada than in most of the world, and that they are better because of our beliefs and habits, a.k.a. our “Canadian values”.

Gosh, the public sector’s taking a big slice of cake?

In my National Post column that appeared in print today, I draw on a new Fraser Institute study to underline that unless we put firm restraints on it, government will indulge its ever-growing appetite including for pay and perks far larger than those left to us in the private sector.

For more on how to restrain government, see our documentary True, Strong and Free on fixing Canada’s Constitution.

Hail Dr. Caesar

In my latest National Post column I lament the casual way the Ontario government has breached doctor-patient confidentiality including laughing off search warrants.
