RE: MORGAN: Let’s call BLM for what it is. A hate group

Thank God for [Cory Morgan’s] perfectly worded article on this disgusting and vile Abdulhakim Dalel and the BLM movement. Please please do not let your words die out. 

In this day of cancel culture we the right need to cancel out the hate speech of the left as vigorously as they are trying to cancel out our lives and beliefs.  We must take a stand!

What they have just said about poor officer Harnett be our last straw. 

Please do everything in your literary power to cancel out this culture of hate toward our values. 

We must take a stand now!

    We are all living in 1984 now . . . .

    “The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering . . . all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting– three hundred million people all with the same face.”

    That was a quote from George Orwell’s seminal work 1984– a masterpiece that describes life in a totalitarian state that demands blind obedience.

    The ‘Party’ controlled everything– the economy, daily life, and even the truth. In Orwell’s 1984, “the heresy of heresies was common sense.”

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered.”

    “And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    If you were ever caught committing a thoughtcrime– dissenting from the Party for even an instant– then “your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten.”

    Now, our world obviously hasn’t become quite as extreme as Orwell’s dystopian vision. But Big Tech, Big Media, and Big Government certainly seem to be giving it their best effort.

      A Totalitarian society ruled by Black Lives Matter BLM and ANTIFA. Their Anarchy ruled the Democratic States for weeks in 2020 with no rule of law and attacks against the very fibre of law and order that keeps a civil society free.

      Now the Vice President elect who then, in 2020, seen fit to bail these thugs out of jail can continue her rampage against law and order. She and her BLM and ANTIFA backers want anarchy along with many others within the Democratic Party.

      God help Americans if Biden’s cognitive functions degrade further and the Vise President elect takes power.

LETTER: Mavericks leaving some out of conservative umbrella

A party that, at its core, is supposed to be about providing a voice to the West, needs to embrace all Western ideals, including pro-life values and pro-traditional marriage values.

RE: Maverick party releases its election platform

As a supporter of the Mavericks, I have been eagerly awaiting their platform. While their very broad and extensive economic platform is a breath of fresh air, their social policies are not. 

A party that, at its core, is supposed to be about providing a voice to the West, needs to embrace all Western ideals, including pro-life values and pro-traditional marriage values. 

One can argue the party should not take sides, but that defeats the purpose of being a voice for the West. However, the platform not only does not embrace social conservativism, but it actively bars social conservatives from expressing a voice, or introducing legislation to support traditional marriage or restrict abortion. 

We don’t need another party telling the West what it should think or feel or believe, and we don’t need yet another top-down party. The Mavericks have not shown either the temerity or the confidence to embrace the values necessary for sustained electoral success. 

I wanted to vote for them, but unless they permit MPs to have a voice in Ottawa, it’s a hard pass for me.

LETTER: Mike Nickel gets down to the brass tax for Edmonton

“No manager ever cleared your streets of snow or fixed your sidewalk.”

In October, Edmontonians will choose a new mayor. There are 10 candidates now. Most names are unknown to me. Three that aren’t, are Michael Oshry, Amarjeet Sohi and Mike Nickel. 

I listened to Oshry’s announcement and his answer to why he was running. I didn’t hear a response that really answered the question. He is running because he has a business background and has been on council for four years. Not good enough for me to vote for him

Amarjeet Sohi was on council for 12 years. I can’t support a civic politician who abandoned the city and now wants to return to the civic fold. We don’t need a mayor who aided uncontrolled federal spending on things that appeal to so-call progressives, but which ignore the real challenges facing working Edmontonians.

Mike Nickel has been a thorn in the side of city council and city management. That makes me take him seriously. Who else has consistently raised issues about where we are spending civic tax dollars? He is aware of the social issues we face such as homelessness, but knows what we have been doing so far hasn’t worked. His approach is worth looking at. He has also asked why we have cut front line workers and added managers. No manager ever cleared your streets of snow or fixed your sidewalk. Bicycle lanes have also been something Nickel has railed against. I have no problem with bike lanes, but object to a lack of consultation and a true cost-benefit analysis.

LETTER: Slobodian has long history of uncovering the truth

Practically no one is reporting the truth anymore, but the Standard.

RE: SLOBODIAN: Beware the MSM Lies on Israeli-Palestine conflict

Thank you, Western Standard, for this timely article.

Practically no one is reporting the truth anymore, but the Standard. It is refreshing to read columns that push back on government-funded media outlets, especially the CBC. I remember Linda Slobodian from her Edmonton Sun days. She always uncovered the truth and made people think outside the box…..hmmm, with Slobodian, there is no box!! 

Well done.

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

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**



The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
