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 […]

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 […]

Are You a Dissident?

by Perry D Foster
Average citizens don’t think of themselves as dissidents. They’re too busy for that. Most of the time they’re hard at work raising families, making ends meet and serving others. This is probably most true of conservatives and social conservatives. Why? Because they are usually the ones who join service organizations, attend church, help with community projects and back humanitarian causes. They are family oriented and hardworking, and it is no exaggeration to say that they are the bedrock of Western society. That’s the way we’ve always thought of them. Are Social Conservatives  Dissidents? But that might be changing. Social conservatives […]

Stepping Over the Line

by Perry D Foster
  In the struggle to change our society, crush morality and defeat decency, Progressive Liberalism won a huge victory in New York state. I’m referring, of course, to the recent 40 week abortion Bill passed by the New York state legislature. After it passed, the members of the legislature actually stood up and cheered. What an incredible thought. Devoid of all compassion and humanity, they applauded a heinous piece of legislation that would terminate human life immediately after birth. They won. But they may also have lost. Beyond the Point of Tolerance  What do I mean this? I mean that […]

What 1940 Can Teach Us

by Perry D Foster
On June 4th, 1940, prime minister Winston Churchill gave the most stirring speech in the history of the English speaking world. In it he called upon his fellow countrymen to fight for their nation. He told them to fight on the beaches, in the landing fields and in the streets, and never to surrender. He reminded them that if the British Empire were to last a thousand years, men would remember them, and that this moment in their long and glorious history would be remembered as their “finest hour.” A False Sense of Security  But the reality of the situation […]

When It’s Time to Act

by Perry D Foster
                          I became a conservative activist ten years ago. I already had conservative values, but it was at that time that I became fully aware of how much Canada and other Western nations were changing. Until then, I had not realized that our traditional  values, history and faith were under attack. Something in the definition of what it meant to be Canadian was changing. Sacred Traditions Trashed But there was even more to it than that. All of the traditional virtues I had grown up with were being persecuted. […]
