Welcome home Canadian Armed Forces

Imagine looking over your shoulder every minute of your waking life for the last eight months, in a high state of alert and anxiety against a possible threat to your or your family’s life.

Parents should be allowed to choose which schools they want their children to attend

This week, the PC Party made an announcement about education. It was quickly lost amid the NDP wailing about Stephen McNeil taking health care back to the last century. But such is the nature of elections and media. The announcement, made in front of Westmount School in Halifax was about school choice. It isn’t as sexy

One would think clean water might be a priority at a hospital

Polling indicates people in Nova Scotia are prepared to change government. The condition of our health care system may well be the reason. While the NDP have been busy putting out glossy brochures about Better Care Sooner, it’s obvious that branding and communications aren’t the problem.

Homeowners should be able to trust quality of decks

It’s one of those things that have bothered me for a long time. Crappy decks. Why do homebuilders cobble together quarter million dollar homes and adorn them with 500 dollar decks?

We can find a way to ensure the Senate is credible

Today the NDP will table a motion in the House of Commons to cut funding to the Senate on July 1st. It’s posturing. It won’t pass. It’s a stupid idea. What it will do is give the NDP an opportunity to talk about why they don’t like the Senate all day. It’s the same argument

Responsible communication in the public interest?

It is hard to imagine the impact on the Ford family from the allegations being leveled at Toronto mayor Rob and his brother Doug… The claims of crack smoking and hash dealing haven’t been proven, but the allegations themselves have kicked the legs out from under the family and for that matter the Toronto municipal
