Dial M for Mayhem

It was sad in this season of joy to read of two recent murders. One was of a young medical student, Maria Landenberger, raped and drowned by an Afghan ‘migrant’. She was a volunteer at one of the refugee centres, and was biking home alone.  I don’t think this will do much for boosting the […]

Further Thoughts on Pat and Sam

As I mentioned in the slightly revised version of my Sam against the Leviathan article, young Sam Oosterhoff, as the balanced but unsympathetic Michael Den Tandt makes clear this morning, is being vilified for his rather moderate traditional views, with one commentator spewing out that an hour in a massage parlour should cure what he […]

Sam alone Stands Against the Leviathan

Well, I must eat some of my words about the newly-minted nineteen-year old Member of Provincial Parliament, Sam Oosterhoff, here in Ontario, and I will give credit where credit is due, in short order. First, the background: On November 28th, here in Canada, the provincial government of Ontario voted into law Bill 28, the ominously […]

Sam Against the Liberal Leviathan

Well, I have expanded my thoughts on young Sam Oosterhoff standing against the Liberal Leviathan, stumbling over our landscape and crushing just about everything in its wake. You can find the article for now on Crisis, and will be posted here soon.  The editor there gave me pause for thought:  Sam could not vote on […]

A campus police officer checking out a nearby gas leak showed up […]

The End of Castro

Justin Trudeau shows his true colours once again, eulogizing Castro as a ‘friend’ of his Dad’s, who ‘made significant improvements to the healthcare and education of his island nation’, whom he also had the ‘opportunity to meet’, along with his Castro’s three sons, ending up praising him as a ‘remarkable leader’.   The reaction has […]

Philosophers, Trump and Trudeau

Today is the feast of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, a woman ‘renowned for her learning’, put to death as a virgin martyr in 305 under Emperor Maximiam (whose wife the saint converted, and who was also thereby condemned).  The emperor brought in the best and brightest pagan philosophers to convince Catherine of the folly of […]

Youthful Ambition Pays Big

So Mr. Oosterfhoff has won the by-election, becoming the youngest MP ever to win a seat in the provincial legislature.  I wish him and his constituents all the best, but still stand by what I wrote, that there should be certain criteria for leadership, whether by custom or by law.  Ideally, we as voters would […]
