    ALL Govt Workers should be within +- 5% of the Private Sector . . .

    Long past time Canada’s Cuba Style HC system was changed to the Euro Model, where Private Sector Hospitals compete. ALL would work like a Doctor’s Office on a Fee For Service Model.

    Well run efficient Hospitals would thrive, also rans would just fade away as they should.

UPDATED WS POLL RESULTS: Should transgender athletes be allowed to compete in women’s sports?

On Monday, Western Standard columnist Barbara Kay took a dive into the controversial topic of a transgender male competing in a women’s division making “mincemeat” of the female competitors.

“Any male who has gone through puberty has acquired a host of benefits that don’t go away with testosterone suppression. Data on run, jump and throw tests show that even before puberty, boys have an enormous advantage over girls in speed, power, and strength. If they didn’t, there would have been no obvious need for a women’s division,” wrote Kay in her column.

Here are the results of our poll. An overwhelming majority of readers voted ‘no’ to transgender athletes being allowed to compete in women’s sports.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**
