Wall is missed
Re: Brad Wall blasts NDP, Trudeau and other leftists.
As a real Conservative what a pleasure to see Brad Wall speaking out against the socialist left, particularly
Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau. As he rightly points out, pushing their ideologically driven policies are harming Canada’s economic well-being. Wall was the only premier taking the fight to the Trudeau government over the national carbon tax. A fiscal conservative, Wall did a great job turning things around in Saskatchewan. Nice to see him also taking issue with Quebec raking in billions in transfer payments, while blocking oil pipelines from West. Canada is worse off with Wall no longer a premier, speaking with a voice of reason and common sense which is sorely lacking amongst our political leaders!
Canada could use more like him.
With all the bad publicity the Winnipeg police get, I thought I would pass this along to everyone. Going to the Jets game a week ago Friday, I saw a stopped car at Disraeli and Main. There was either a WPS car or a cadet car behind them with the lights on. I thought as usual, the glorified tax collectors are out again. But when I looked closer, this uniformed officer was helping change a tire on the person’s car, and the other uniformed officer was directing traffic. I see this all the time when I travel in the U.S. Kudos to WPS!
They do a lot of good work, most of it isn’t seen by the general public.
Welcome back, Lorrie
It’s wonderful to have Lorrie Goldstein back at his keyboard and better than ever! I truly missed him. My only concern is his ordeal may have somehow rendered him a little too magnanimous. For in an otherwise flawless piece he contends that “Canada may be relatively further ahead in its specific negotiations with the Algonquins than Israel is with the Palestinians, but neither territorial claim has been resolved and, as history has demonstrated, these issues are complicated and agreements are easier said than done.” I can’t helping thinking that the old (extra hard-boiled) Mr. Goldstein might have written: “Canada may be relatively further ahead in its specific negotiations with the Algonquins than Israel is with the Palestinians, but then again the Algonquins are not dedicated to the eradication of Canada and all Canadians en route.” Still, welcome back Mr. Goldstein … and cheers to Andrew Scheer as well for backing President Donald Trump on Jerusalem!
We’re happy to have him back.
Re: “On Jerusalem, Scheer’s right, Trudeau’s wrong,” Lorrie Goldstein, March 10.
I have always been more pro-Israel through the years, but, considering the way that Israel sometimes seems to bully the Palestinians, I sometimes waver in my sympathies. However, Mr. Goldstein made some telling points in his argument in support of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city. The clinching point of Mr. Goldstein’s argument being that Ottawa — as well as virtually every city and town in North America — lies on contested ground. The European settlers that migrated to North America took the land away from the original Indigenous people by force. That is just the way history has always unfolded. Therefore, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city is only common sense.
A divisive issue that won’t be concluded any time soon.
