Farenheit 451?

by Perry D Foster
A lot of us are old enough to remember the book Fahrenheit 451. Written by Ray Bradbury, it was set in the future when firemen did not put out fires but instead started them. It was their job to burn books, all of which were forbidden. Like the book 1984, it was a warning. Bradbury, like Orwell, was trying to tell us that the potential for our freedoms disappearing was very real. But it was science fiction, right? It could never happen here, right? That’s what we told ourselves, but we were wrong. The New Book Burning There are no […]

Cancelling British Columbia?

by Perry D Foster
Cancel culture is a terrible thing. It’s no good to claim, as the left does, that it doesn’t exist. That is often their answer to criticism “It doesn’t exist” or “It isn’t so,” as if denying something makes it so. But we know that cancel culture does exist. It’s not the only thing eating away at our rights and freedoms, but it is probably the most potent. There are others, like critical race theory, woke culture and political correctness. They are all damaging our culture, but cancel culture is the worst. Knowing this, you may be asking yourself who their […]

The Real Bigots

by Perry D Foster
Bigotry is returning to our world. For a while it seemed as though we might overcome it and realize Martin Luther King’s dream that we would judge people by the “content of their character” rather than the “colour of their skin.” That sentiment now seems to have fallen away. We are more divided than ever. What happened?  Identity Politics Identity politics happened. A few decades ago our ideas about what was noble and good began to change. To some degree we lost the concept of objective morality. Along with it went other important ideas such as good citizenship and “civic […]

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 […]

Degrading Our Heroes

by Perry D Foster
  I recently came across a book that both shocked and angered me. It was entitled “Churchill and Empire: A Portrait of an Imperialist” by Lawrence James. I almost dropped it right there in the bookstore. First, it was obvious what James was trying to do and, second, I hadn’t realized just how bad things had gotten. These days there seems to be a never ending parade of liberal progressives and radical leftists insulting our history and degrading our heroes. It’s become  commonplace. But this was too much. Winston Churchill. Hero or Evil Imperialist? The attempted suggestion was obvious. Churchill […]
