Russian Interference Online Dwarfed By Social Media Giants And Liberal Government’s Own Meddling
The fear of foreign actors, primarily RUSSIA, meddling in Canada's next federal election has been bleated ad nauseam by Canadian left-wing politicians, academics and journalists. Ever since Donald Trump burst their collective bubble of arrogance by winning the presidency at the tail end of 2016, the Liberal Party of Canada and their many allies in the … Continue reading Russian Interference Online Dwarfed By Social Media Giants And Liberal Government’s Own Meddling
Draft Hank Hill As The Symbol Of Canada’s Conservative Resistance
Josh Lieblein Depending on how you look at it, this week was either a new low point for Trudeau's government or a high point for Liberals being Liberals. (As a matter of fact, it might have been both.) Legacy media finally assumes the position and allows itself to be bailed out? All part of the … Continue reading Draft Hank Hill As The Symbol Of Canada’s Conservative Resistance
The PCPO’s Idiotic Gender Identity Resolution Debacle Is An Exemplary Display Of Everything Wrong With Conservatism In Canada Today
By Josh Lieblein In February of 2013, Tom Flanagan, Stephen Harper's mentor and the man who we had been led to believe was the Canadian Conservative intellectual heavyweight, disgraced himself by defending people's right to look at child porn, or saying that putting people in jail for looking at pictures of naked children is an overreaction … Continue reading The PCPO’s Idiotic Gender Identity Resolution Debacle Is An Exemplary Display Of Everything Wrong With Conservatism In Canada Today

Some Completely Fair Questions About Normalizing Extremist Rhetoric in Canada
By Josh Lieblein Now that the electorate has rendered an overwhelming verdict of "meh" on Faith Goldy and her fairly desperate attempts to inject white-nationalist flavoured fervour into an otherwise crashingly boring mayoral campaign, we can finally talk about her without being accused of "normalizing" her and her rhetoric -- hopefully. Although Goldy wasn't the … Continue reading Some Completely Fair Questions About Normalizing Extremist Rhetoric in Canada
Ultra Low Expectations: How Faith Goldy Wins, No Matter The Election Results
When Canadian media by and large pretend a relatively high-profile mayoral candidate doesn't exist -- despite her repeatedly polling in third -- and the only major news outlet in the city giving straight reporting on her campaign is a Chinese-Canadian TV network (the least communistic of the lot, apparently) many average citizens in a so-called free … Continue reading Ultra Low Expectations: How Faith Goldy Wins, No Matter The Election Results
September’s CBC Bias Bonanza
By Josh Lieblein Hey, you know what regular, everyday Canadians love to complain about? The CBC and how biased it is. Really! Your clicks don't lie.
