The Real Bank Crisis: Protecting Profits at Public Expense

As published in the Victoria Standard: May 9, 2018.

Declaring a so-called consumer debt crisis effectively distracts Canadians from the lingering institutional problems that undermine the entire economy. Effective and permanent solutions will never emerge from the councils of those who benefit from the unfairness of the current system.

Trudeau’s Gun Laws: A Work in Progress

Trudeau’s Gun Laws: A Work in Progress

As published in the Victoria Standard: April 11, 2018

Trudeau’s proposed firearms legislation may actually reduce gun violence, especially in large cities like Toronto and Ottawa where violence committed with smuggled and stolen guns is increasing. While Canada’s problem is tiny compared to the U.S., similar nations like Australia and the U.K. suffer far less gun crime.

Recent Gaza Turmoil: Missing Context and Censorship

Below is a textbook example of corporate editors censoring inconvenient facts that contradict the dominant narrative on Israel/Palestine while they pretend to offer balanced coverage. The most dissonant information was “removed from inspection” since these gatekeepers deem the public unfit to respond in a suitable manner. The veracity of the missing information is therefore treated as a problem rather than a matter of public interest.

I welcome the possibility that Justin Trudeau may have mentioned past separatist violence in Quebec while discussing Sikh independence with India’s leaders. Hopefully, Trudeau’s alleged remarks will inspire public discourse on the darker aspects of Quebec’s persistent separatist movement. Since Canada’s political leadership seemingly ignores the consequences of endless pandering to Quebec’s discontents; I’ll take any excuse to examine these matters.

as published in the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, March/April 2018, pp. 6-7

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s abstention on the recent U.N. vote against Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was both predictable and firmly rooted in Canada’s history of official support for Zionism at the expense of Palestinian Arabs. Canada’s non-Jewish Zionists include Biblical literalists and other Christians seeking the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies.

Federal employment grants were a regular part of summer life in Baddeck during the seventies and early eighties. Public funding helped staff Kidston Island and provided summer workers for a host of businesses and organizations; maybe including some with “Christian” core mandates opposing abortion.
