I’m writing this on the morning of Canada Day 2014, thinking about all the fascinating things I’ve read about and seen, and all the people I’ve met. One thing I’ve come across is all the different parts of Canadian history I’ve studied, and how they’ve tied into many of the recent issues we’ve faced in Canada.
The Social Pendulum has been swinging away from equality for at least 50 years. The choices to reverse direction are few, dangerous, and increasingly insistent.
Canadian media fails again. A look behind the European Union Haters reveals a European Union that deserves, increasingly, to be hated.
In 2012, it seemed as though Alberta’s long-running Progressive Conservative dynasty was finished. The Wildrose Alliance party, led by Danielle Smith, was set to form government.

"The National" said it all on April 24, 2014. Public Broadcasting is betraying the Canadian people.

Not everyone shares this feeling, however.
Canadian politicians are failing Canada and Canadians in their wholesale praise and adoration of a man who devoted his time in our national parliament to the betrayal of Canadians by active participation in the destruction of freedom, justice, and democracy in Canada.
The GLobe and Mail claims to be Canada's National Newspaper. It is, rather, a propaganda voice for The One Per Cent. Because of that plain fact Canadians are abandoning it and all the similarly directed conventional media for "other sources of information".
As is so often the case when Quebec comes up in the news, the current provincial election has led to a lot of people calling for that province to simply leave Canada once and for all. However, I'm not sure that the people, both inside and outside Quebec, who want la belle province to leave have thought through exactly what the implications would be...
The Winter Olympics are now part of the history books. However, while this celebration of global unity was happening, the gruesome civil war in Syria has continued unabated. The civil war in Libya prompted Western countries like Canada to provide military support to the rebels, but so far no Western country has done the same thing in Syria.
