Retiring Chairman’s Message, Reed Elley

by Perry D Foster
About 7 years ago, some of us were sitting in Tim Hortons having coffee together. We decided that we would stop complaining about what was happening in Canada and start doing something. As a result, we started Freedom Defence Canada. I was elected chairman and we formed a board of directors.

Degrading Our Heroes

by Perry D Foster
  I recently came across a book that both shocked and angered me. It was entitled “Churchill and Empire: A Portrait of an Imperialist” by Lawrence James. I almost dropped it right there in the bookstore. First, it was obvious what James was trying to do and, second, I hadn’t realized just how bad things had gotten. These days there seems to be a never ending parade of liberal progressives and radical leftists insulting our history and degrading our heroes. It’s become  commonplace. But this was too much.
