Lib-left-led America: 73.5% say USA on wrong track. Conservative-led Canada? The Opposite.

One of the most accurate pollsters in Canada says in a new survey result that 63.5% of Canadians now think Canada is on the right track.  This is up from 52% last year.  Interestingly, last year, Canada had a Conservative Party government but it was only a minority Conservative government.  Following the May 2011 elections, […]

What will be Stephen Harper’s legacy?

On this 144th anniversary weekend marking Canada Day, or for traditionalists among us, Dominion Day, Prime Minister Stephen Harper with a new majority mandate deservingly earned can take quiet pride in the seat he occupies while surveying the land and people he has been elected to govern. Harper will likely ask himself, and others surrounding […]

Not all Iggy’s fault

Thank the Lord it’s over. Now Stephen Harper can get on with his job; the professor can go back to school; the traitor can go back to wherever he likes; and we can relax a little and go back to what matters. It’s likely that the Tories will now become the party to beat as […]

Coren: Give Harper job back

My 17-year-old son came up to me the other day and asked if he could vote. I was surprised in that soccer, girls and fun with his buddies seem to have been his politics for some time now. I told him he had to wait a year. “Can I vote for whoever I like,” he […]

Is majority possible without Quebec?

On the last weekend ahead of Canada’s 41st general election, the politically smart or cautious view is the outcome will be more or less the same as that of the previous election. But there is never denying the slim possibility of the voters outsmarting the pundits and everyone else. If this were to happen, what […]

Globe and Mail endorses Conservative Party; socialists just too spendy!

In what could be the most tepid or bitter “endorsement” in years by any of the Canadian liberal/progressive media organizations, the Globe and Mail endorsed Stephen Harper and the Conservatives for the May 2 2011 election (I have to specify which election, because in the insanity that is Canadian politics, there could be another one […]

Left-wing Toronto Star with (almost!) positive Harper front page!

Savor it while it lasts, Canadians.  It will be the last (almost!) positive, and not overtly contemptuous or disgraceful or disdainful Harper-related front page in, well maybe ever. They will almost immediately revert back to their anti-Harper, anti-anything-conservative quagmire. (…read on, below picture…) And today  —  just today  —  even the Toronto Star’s accompanying picture […]

Liberal Leader “Mr Civility” directly compares Harper/Conservatives to Syrian/Egyptian dictatorships

Harper’s worse than Hitler!   — Or at least that’s what I’m waiting to hear from the self-described Mr. Civility, Liberal Party leader Michael Ignatieff.  Ignatieff, who, much like his apparent demi-God Barack Obama, always finger-wags at his political opponents but then immediately proceeds to do exactly that which he just finished deriding, directly compared Prime […]
