ProudToBeCanadian is undergoing a rebirth

STICKY POST – Fresh new posts below

Since we’re between elections, and other distractions have been largely shoved aside, it’s a great time to rebuild this site. Competing plans are being analysed, and through the rest of spring and into summer, a new plan will be chosen and work will begin.

Meantime, there’s lots of articles to catch up on (thousands!), starting below this article, and some new articles will be added when time permits.

Please keep in touch!

Peter Kent on Trudeau’s weird Chinacommielove

I’m not the state-owned CBC or CTV. I don’t act like a stenographer for (in my case) CPC talking points, the way “reporters” for the CBC and several citizen-owned media outlets do for their parties (Lib, NDP, Green, Gaia, or any combination thereof). And by the way, I’m also not a reporter in case you hadn’t noticed my good grammar and punctuation. But occasionally — really rarely — I can’t say it better than it was said in a CPC talking points memo or email. (Or I’m being lazy).

I find what the Liberals are doing on this file more appalling than than lots of the rest, which is saying a lot. So here’s this:

Dear Joel,

Justin Trudeau is putting the interests of his friends, closely connected with Beijing, ahead of the safety and security of Canadians.

Back in 2015, our Conservative government blocked the sale of a Canadian electronics firm to China’s O-Net Communications – due to national security concerns.

But the Liberals reversed our decision.

And now, the Liberals are set to approve another Chinese takeover deal of a Vancouver-based company that builds satellite receivers for NATO – while refusing to subject this takeover to a full national security review.

Canada uses this company’s technology for its own military purposes. Without a proper national security review, Canada’s safety and security — and that of our allies — are being put at risk.

Even the former head of CSIS said he would have recommended a full national security review of this deal.

As I’ve said before, China’s drive to militarize the South China Sea and the technological ramifications of a deal like this, deserve much more due diligence.

So why is the Prime Minister so fascinated with China and their “basic dictatorship”?

Why does he have such an overwhelming desire to appease his friends in Beijing – so much so, that it clouds his judgment on Canada’s national security?

Is this the Prime Minister’s way of thanking his Chinese communist government billionaire friends who paid top dollar to meet with him privately a year ago?

This is a worrying trend – one where Trudeau is putting his own interests ahead of the best interests of our country.

Canadian security – not Chinese government connected donors to the Liberal Party – needs to be top of mind for Justin Trudeau.

Donate now if you agree.

Sincerely,
Peter Kent, MP for Thornhill

Donald Trump may be a lot of things, but he’s not ineffectual

Quote of the week — by former Conservative government Finance Minister Joe Oliver, in the National Post this morning. He’s writing of how the current Liberal government is blowing our relationship with America, at a crucial time, by stupidly grandstanding largely to satisfy their own Liberal Party base. …Still, we [Canada] should do our share […]

Yahoo insipid left-wing fake news crop -2017-06-12_115608

Spot the bullCBC story at Yahoo Finance Canada

You’d be forgiven for thinking it was was the extreme leftist state-owned CBC web site. But no. It’s Yahoo. This kind of bullCBC does happen occasionally at regular free-market sites. I mean normal ones who haven’t given up the pretence of objectivity. It leaks out the odd time giving us the chance to see what […]

Who is Andres Sheer - cropped - 2017-06-01_075605

News of his election booted to page 30; now media asks, “Who is this Andrew Scheer guy?”

When the Conservatives elected Andrew Scheer as its new leader last weekend, the Vancouver Sun shoved the story onto page 13 — so insignificant they thought — or wanted you to think — that it was. They certainly weren’t interested in you learning the big news, or who Andrew Scheer was, to say the least. […]

Conservative Party leadership - Van Sun - 13 pages in (crop) - 2017-05-29_081554

The Media vs Conservatives: Conservative Party Leadership Finale = Page 30

The big Conservative Party leadership contest ended on Saturday with Andrew Scheer winning. Where did Vancouver’s The Province (a Postmedia paper – same owner as National Post, etc.) put the story on Sunday? Page 30. Yeah no, not the front page. Not page 4. Not page 11. Not 16. Not 26. Page 30. The story — […]

Conservative Party leadership ballot — and how I’m ranking my vote

How did I decide how to mark my Conservative Party leadership ballot? Virtually all the candidates spout the same lines on personal and corporate taxes (lowering them), and some other key issues. So I judged based a variety of other factors where the candidates’ position on issues were actually different: abortion, gun rights, supply management, […]

Foreign aid is not aid, it’s a rip-off

I’ve made clear the position of this website on the candidates for leader of the Conservative Party (Maxime Bernier). So I’ll go ahead and share another reason why: it comes from this latest emailout by his team. In it he talks about foreign affairs, or at least foreign aid, and how it should really be […]

email - 2017-04-07_092432

Alt-right email. Alt-answered.

Mail delivered to me in a fashion at odds with the quaint traditional postal mail methods of yore. And then answered in a similar alternate fashion. Hi Joseph, I think what the “alt-right” folks intended to mean was “an alternative to the traditional, or ‘establishment,’ or commonly-known version of the right,” rather than anything like […]

Email about CBC: Asked and Answered.

Hi Kent — The CBC — and virtually everyone who works there — literally relies on a degree of socialism and a socialist mindset for the CBC’s very existence. Without their annual $1.5 billion of the taxpayers’ cash and all the market protections given to them by the state and the other state-mandated advantages, they would immediately die under the rules of actual life — the free market, […]

Trudeau Liberals’ crony capitalism and hypocrisy is delivered by courier trucks, V8s, and jet engines

Not a day goes by wherein the uberliberal Liberals don’t meddle in the economy, engage in their croney capitalism, waste our taxpayer dollars, further wreck the free market, wreck capitalism, wreck businesses, negate any semblance of their own principles which are now demonstrably farcical, and gradually take Canada down with them as a general matter.  […]

National Post misleads on Leitch. Again.

The liberal mainstream media misreads, and it misleads. But now for some news: Demonstrating the mainstream media’s amazing ability to misread public sentiment, notwithstanding their recent gigantic misses, I think the National Post thinks it is slamming Kellie Leitch today. But I suspect it’s actually going to help her. And that’s because readers are tired of […]

Everything that is wrong with liberals and Liberals: Bombardier.

Taxpayer protection against this sort of crap wasn’t written into the agreement to bail this chronic corporate welfare case out? Apparently not. The Trudeau Liberals are quite the dealmakers! Bombardier’s top execs get almost 50% pay raise as company lays off thousands, taps government aid https://t.co/l51oGzpavv #business pic.twitter.com/d9cgONquf3 — National Post (@nationalpost) March 29, 2017 […]

“News” media can’t figure out the news. Even the fake news.

Aside from the problem that most “news” media outlets present hardly any actual news, and instead shove almost entirely left-wing, progressive, liberal, socialist, or downright communist opinion in your face every day (or fake news), my post today exemplifies another big part of the problem with the “news” media. By the way I don’t do this to […]
