Polygonic: Of babies and bathwater: how Harper might be undermining the monarchy

The Constitution? Unborn Queens? Fascinating stuff (do not insert a “said no one, ever” after that please).  The scene unfolds thusly: Parliament recently approved a gender equity bill as regards which unelected English aristocrat may reign over us (such progressive times in which we live), that met little controversy or opposition – or even much ...

The Scott Ross: Powerful Women Shouldn’t Be News

Kathleen Wynne becoming our sixth female premier isn’t newsworthy, what will be, is when a premier’s gender doesn’t make headlines. It’s of course understandable why newspapers should report on Ontario’s first female premier, it is historic, but ultimately what will determine progress on gender equality is whether the media and Canadians in general eventually stop ...

The Scott Ross: America, Canada’s Monarchy

The Queen is unelected by Canadians, is ultimately responsible for Canada’s well-being, and exerts no influence over Canadian affairs. The President of the United States is unelected by Canadians, has no responsibility for Canada’s well-being, and exerts considerable influence over Canadian affairs. While the Queen hasn’t interfered in any of our government’s decisions, the United ...

The Scott Ross: Kate Middleton Exposes Canada’s Need For The Monarchy

Once a monarchy is to be defended like a Lindsay Lohan, the country that ultimately depends on it for stability will end up in far worse places than rehab. Besides more than enough skin, pictures of a half naked Kate Middleton have revealed why Canada still needs the monarchy. Not so much because of the ...

The Scott Ross: Majority Rule by the Few

The wasteful, unelected monarchy is bad and democracy is good. Since most Canadians don’t require a more indepth argument than that, let’s use the democratic system to finally severe Canada’s ties with the monarchy. Let’s get a majority of us together, in our democracy that will require about 38% of the 61% who actually vote, ...

Welcome to new Canadian citizen, Paul Rodgers!

Paul Rodgers (left) with Roger Taylor and Brian May during the Queen days Always good to welcome someone from another land who adopts this wonderful country, Conservatives and all. “It may not be my native land but Canada is surely now my home. While I’ll always be an Englishman, Canada has given me so much ...

Trashy's World: Can we be annexed by Australia?

…seriously. Because their PM has balls (figuratively). More balls than our guys…   Of course, Steve probably curtsied. And Peter shurely did! The queen should be shown the same degree of respect as anyone her age. No more and no less. She is no different from any one of us except for the luck of ...

Trashy's World: Canadian Brownies and Guiding…

… what an enlightened organization! Let me explain… My youngest daughter wanted to join our local Brownies Chapter – largely because one of her best buds was into it. And given why I knew about it, it would be a good fit for her and her personality. Yet, I have had some issues with organizations ...

LeDaro: British PM David Cameron addresses a joint session of Parliament

When these leaders make speeches; pay attention to their language and the symbolism behind such language. An American president, in this case Obama, will use the language like “we are one nation under God” partially implying American exceptionalism as if it is the only nation under God. Hey Obama, if there is a God then ...

Harper Valley: Stephen Harper’s Police State

Doesn’t HE look grand?  From the first throws of holding office , Steve’s done nothing but a series of playing dress-up and enacting the game….only, in real life.   So he’s made Canada a police state.   My what fun, for him!  Bullies don’t really have any concern about the people they’re hurting, the toxic ...
