February 2024 – A full review of the Liberal government’s Fall Economic Statement, ArriveSCAM, the myth of oil and gas subsidies, and the long abandoned “fiscal anchor”.

October 6, 2023 – The World Petroleum Congress – some thoughts; embarrassing Ukrainian President Zelenskyy during his visit to Canada; the Affordable Housing and Groceries Act (Bill C-56) which will do absolutely nothing to make housing and groceries more affordable; mandating electric vehicles but obstructing the mining of necessary minerals to build them; and the Alberta Electric System Operator warns of brown-outs if we rush to a net-zero electricity grid by 2035.

September 15, 2023 – Parliament resumes on September 18 with a host of worrisome issues. I’ve included some perspectives on our troubled economy including low productivity and a poor investment climate; and two areas where the government is way off track: installing public EV chargers; and their estimate of how long it will take to recover their subsidies to EV battery plants (spoiler alert: the government says 5 years but the Parliamentary Budget Officer says 20 years).

August 24, 2023 – A digest of issues raised with me over the summer, including inflation/cost of living, the ill-conceived “plan” to get to net-zero electricity by 2035 (Ottawa’s goal) or 2050 (Alberta’s goal), an assault on natural health products, the bungled legislation that has led to Meta (Facebook/Instagram) removing news links from their sites, and housing policy, which is probably the #1 issue I’m hearing from constituents.

July 27, 2023 – My analysis of the so-called “fossil fuel subsidies” the government is promising to end; some polling results conducted by the Prime Minister’s Office that show citizens just don’t trust them; pictures from Canada Day and Stampede. Ya-Hoo!

June 27, 2023 – a close look at the threats to democracy of the new “hybrid Parliament”; the Liberal in-and-out spending pattern; the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; and a few words on the muddle response to alleged foreign meddling in Canada’s democracy.

May 18, 2023 – A close look at the government’s Just Transition Plan for oil and gas workers, now rebranded the Sustainable Jobs Plan – and how a similar plan worked out for coal workers.

March 24, 2023 – Deeper look at health care funding; allegations of foreign electoral interference and what Conservatives would do differently.

March 5, 2023 Special Edition on Bill C-11, the “Internet Censorship Bill”

February 22, 2023 – The Liberals’ deliberate inflationary spiral of higher taxes and over-spending; Yes Prime Minister, there IS a business case for LNG exports, and Tourmaline Energy is proving it.

January 26, 2023– New taxes, soaring government contracts amid bloated public service, travel chaos.
