What Churchill Means to Us

by Perry D Foster
There are many kinds of heroes. Some are anonymous, living ordinary lives without recognition or fame. You may know someone like that. They are heroic because they inspire us through their exemplary conduct, self sacrifice and character. If we are lucky they are family members, relatives or friends. If not, then we can always dip into the well of history to find someone.  History is full of heroes. For me, and millions of others, the greatest of these was Winston Churchill.  Churchill is Inspirational Churchill’s life was an inspiration. He wasn’t perfect. He made mistakes, like the disastrous Dardanelles campaign of […]

I Am Not Ashamed

by Perry D Foster
I am not ashamed. Canada is a great country with a diverse and interesting history. I am not ashamed of it. The progressive left wants you to be ashamed. For them it is vital that you think of Canada as a terrible nation, guilty of horrendous historic wrongs, a genocidal and bloodstained place that needs to be reformed from the bottom up.

Most of us already know that. So, why […]

These days conservatives can feel lonely. The world has changed a lot in the last few years. So many things we once accepted as common sense or normal have been upended. In their place is a bizarre value system that has turned time honoured values on their head and is intent on destroying everything we value and love. It can often feel as though you are the only one who feels the way you do and the only one who “gets it.” Not alone, Not Aberrant But you are not alone. Untold millions in Canada and around the globe feel […]

Operation Extinction

by Perry D Foster
I first realized North American politics had changed during the Obama era. George W. Bush had been an unpopular president. It was clear that America wanted change. Along came Barrack Obama who captured the presidency and initiated a social revolution. But along with that came a political perspective that could only be described as sinister. I remember hearing a news item stating that an Obama advisor had said now was the time to destroy the Republicans and remove conservative thought from America forever.  Not Fair Play I was shocked. I had grown up in a different world. No one sought to […]
