“Merry Christmas!” and Why It Matters

by Perry D Foster
It’s almost Christmas. As the festive season ramps up, and we prepare for Christmas day, we have a lot to think about. It’s the end of the year, and most of us spend time thinking about what we have done and what we would like to achieve in the coming year. But there’s more to it than that. It’s Christmas, that wonderful time of the year when we drop everything and relax in the spirit of “Peace on Earth and Good Will toward Men.” And more importantly, for millions of us, it’s a celebration of Christ’s birth. That’s where it […]

Is the Future Hungarian?

by Perry D Foster
Around the world, populist nationalist movements are rising. It shouldn’t surprise anyone. For decades now the popular image of a global world order taking care of us because we can’t take care of ourselves has been promoted everywhere. It grew out of many sources, all of them liberal or left leaning. Even the original Star Trek T.V. series promoted this idea. Sometime in the future there would be an Earth Authority, part of a United Federation of Planets in which everyone obeyed a central galactic authority. Don’t get me wrong. I loved the series, but I’ve come to deeply dislike […]

Why the “Far Right” Might Not Be

by Perry D Foster
  Every political movement has its extremist element. The Right had the Nazis. The Left had Marxist Leninism. Every part of the political spectrum can be distorted and used for evil purposes. But this doesn’t mean every political ideology is wrong. It does mean, however, that they can be manipulated by others for political gain. That’s what’s happening in Canada and the U.S. today. The Rise of the “Alt Right.” Who profited ?  During the later stages of the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign the public suddenly began to hear about the “Alt Right.”Actually, this term had been used for some […]

A House Divided: A Post Mortem on the Federal Election

by Perry D Foster
The Biblical quotation “a house divided against itself cannot stand” now applies to Canada more than ever. Why? Because of the recent federal election. Let’s take a look at the results of that election and what it means for our future. First, it was the worst possible result for Canada and for social conservatives.   Yes, the Conservatives captured the popular vote, but they could not form a government. As a result, Trudeau’s Liberals, as well as the other left wing parties, will almost certainly form a coalition that will continue to pass legislation favouring the progressive left. Their bizarre […]

What My Father Fought For

by Perry D Foster
  My father fought in the Second World War. To be more accurate, he fought in the toughest battles of the war. He was at Juno Beach, Caen, the Falaise Gap, the capture of Antwerp, the Liberation of Holland and the push to the Rhine. It left its mark on him as it did on so many other Canadians, and he had trouble adjusting when he got home. Today he would have been diagnosed as having PTSD, but in those days they just called it “Battle Shock.” It took him years to recover and a long time before he could […]

The Most Important Issue in this Election

by Perry D Foster
   All the political parties in the upcoming election are talking about the economy, the environment, tax cuts, foreign policy and so on. But one issue we don’t hear enough about is the erosion of our rights and freedoms. If we lose them, then it won’t matter whether we have elections at all. Our democracy will have disappeared.  Recent Events are Disturbing  If you’ve been following the national news, you probably remember some of the incidents I’m about to describe. The federal government told us we had to agree with their views on abortion, gay marriage, and euthanasia if we […]
