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 […]

Why I will Never Be Postnational

by Perry D Foster
I cherish my identity. To put it more accurately, I cherish my identity as a man, a husband, a son, and a Canadian. There are other things that I am proud of, and have no intention of apologizing for. My pride in these things, and my desire to protect them, are normal. Both my identity, and the freedom to express my pride in at, are part of my heritage. They are nothing to be ashamed of. Our Governments are Against National Pride. But that is not what we are being told. Along with millions of other people of the West, […]

The Great War

by Perry D Foster
Only one war in human history has ever been called “The Great War.” The terrible struggle of 1914 to 1918 decimated Europe and swept away the old order. It ushered in an era of new and terrible weaponry, mass casualties and an appalling disregard for human life. When it was over nothing would ever be the same. Any notions of chivalric idealism had vanished in the death, mud and blood of Passchendaele and the  Somme. When an armistice was signed the world heaved a sigh of relief and tried to put the pieces back together again. Another Great War Now […]

Government or Regime?

by Perry D Foster
There is a terrible point in the affairs of a nation when government, obligated to safeguard the rights of its citizens, crushes those rights and becomes a regime. It’s difficult to know exactly when this begins, but there is always a moment when it becomes obvious to all that the nation they once loved has metastasized into something else. Small Events, Innocuous Decrees. It might begin with small events and seemingly innocuous decrees. Perhaps the hypothetical nation we are speaking of, a place where free speech was once cherished and defended, now forbids its citizens to criticize a certain belief […]
