The importance of free press

Our government has been on an ongoing conflict between the its attempts to strengthen and protect itself and the press’s attempts to scrutinize and report on the government.

Purchasing legal “pot” or working for the industry? You might want to know this.

If you pay for the purchase of cannabis, with your credit card, know that the data of the transaction could be scrutinized by the US government, thanks to the Patriot Act (voted shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001). Why would the US government be snooping Canadian legal purchases? Well, the servers of the... Continue Reading →

Do we even care about education?

The CAQ want to make pre-kindergarten free (but not mandatory) for 4-year-olds. It may sound good, but don't be fooled.

If a government claims to be an ecologist, it can not encourage the oil companies to develop to infinity, yet that seems to be the case... Continue Reading →

I stand behind Colin Kaepernick

I'm Canadian. I don't understand why people are so mad about an individual taking a knee during the national anthem to protest the injustice associated with police brutality directed at black people.
