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!

“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 […]

Make Canada Great Again — say liberal Canadians, apparently.

My morning’s first tweets were so much fun to write. Wow – it looks like Liberal-voting Canadians want to Make Canada Great Again.#MCGA pic.twitter.com/bJQNyFkKc6 — Joel Johannesen (@JoelJohannesen) March 20, 2017 Canadians are closet Trump fans. They should come out of the closet. https://t.co/CXw78zApwG pic.twitter.com/W0CtjnGTo2 — Joel Johannesen (@JoelJohannesen) March 20, 2017 Sounds like a […]

Maxime Bernier gets our endorsement for Conservative Party leadership

Since its launch in about 2000, ProudToBeCanadian.ca has stood for solid true-blue conservatism. No, all you leftists reading this (and we know you’re there thanks to all your ever-so gracious and tolerant and inclusive emails), we’re not “alt-right” (whatever that means, and we know for certain you don’t); and no, we’re not “extreme right-wing” (whatever […]

Ivanka Trump fashion business booming after Nordstrom ban

I know what you’re thinking, but it is merely a coincidence that ever since our ad for the Ivanka Trump fashion line was put up on our site, her sales skyrocketed. Ivanka Trump clothing line reports record sales Ivanka Trump’s eponymous women’s fashion line is reporting record sales figures despite calls for a boycott and […]

Trump Tower Vancouver opens; media promotion of massive protest: fails

  Trump Tower Vancouver: the ever-so objective and trustworthy media “reported” that the number of protesters organized by two different left-wing groups and their web sites could climb into the thousands. Thousands. For example the Globe and Mail’s Frances Bula reported, “About 2,000 people have indicated on each site they are interested in attending.” And […]

Dakota Access Pipeline protesters

That Dakota Access Pipeline protest? Yeah. What a load of crap. Literally.

Want to get up-to-speed on pipeline protests in light of the recent Canadian pipeline approvals, what with the left’s promises (threats?) of protests and “resistance?” As a good backgrounder, get a good fact-based synopsis of that Dakota Access Pipeline protest down south, now that’s it’s being Trumped. Katie Kieffer writes it up today with aplomb. […]

Media botches another phony anti-Trump headline

I could do this all day long. This and only this. And I still wouldn’t have time to do them all. But here’s the latest today: Drudge corrects the record — actually corrected it a long time ago. Globe & Mail doesn’t care. They leave their headline in place. @ericContrarian put it succinctly: As did […]
