What the Corona Virus is Teaching Us

by Perry D Foster
  As I write this we’re going through the Wuhan Corona Virus emergency. It’s bad. We’ve  all been forced to alter our lives, and we don’t know when it will end. And, as so often happens in emergencies like this, extreme points of view are being pushed. One of them is the “Doomsday View.” It claims that the virus is the “end of all things.” Its opposite is “The Scam View,” the idea that the virus has been exaggerated and that we don’t need to worry. The answer lies somewhere in between. We need to go to that place and […]

Why Murdoch Lies

by Perry D Foster
Don’t get me wrong. I love “Murdoch Mysteries.” Set in early twentieth century Toronto, the series is a nostalgic look at a great time in Canadian history. It might even qualify as “Canadiana” so it isn’t easy for me to condemn it. But, as one historical figure so accurately put it, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” We have to be honest. Murdoch Mysteries lies. Historical Truth Is Important.  We do our best when we look back. We see the past as “through a glass darkly,” and we can never truly know what it was like to live […]

Remembering Betty Bond

by Perry D Foster
By Reed Elley. Freedom Defence Canada and social conservatives across the nation lost a huge supporter in Early February. After a prolonged battle with lung cancer, treasurer and long time board member, Betty Bond, passed away. I knew Betty for 27 years, and worked with her in many capacities, first in the Conservative Party of Canada and more recently as the treasurer and membership director of Freedom Defence Canada. Many of you will remember her as the lively, petite red haired lady who collected your donations, fees and memberships at our events. She was a tireless worker for the causes […]

Laurier Must Remain!

There comes a time when a nation must make a decision about its past. That statement may surprise you. You may have thought that I was going to say that it would need to make a decision about its future. But these days, the past is in as much peril as the future. Around the world governments and power brokers are attempting to rewrite history, and nowhere is this more true than in Canada. For the past couple of decades a concerted attempt has been made to rewrite our history and eradicate our traditional narrative. Social Justice War  There’s no […]

“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 […]
