CARPAY: Kenney-Notley covidism follows in the footsteps of other collectivist ideologies

“Covidism’s heaven, sought after by Jason Kenney and Rachel Notley alike, is a place where nobody dies of COVID-19, regardless of the adverse by-products of their crusade.”

On April 29, 2021, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said that his government may begin to impose curfews on Albertans.  I found it hard not to recall the stories of my grandparents who endured government-imposed curfews in the Netherlands during the Second World War. Those curfews were imposed by an infinitely more odious regime and under wildly different circumstances, but their effect and a

    Clark . . . there is no TAR in Fr. McMurray . . . you sound like an Echo-freak!

    Texas is normal today . . . and since much of Alberta’s oil industry moved there 5 years ago there is going to be some travel.

    Likely all of those workers under 60 and their odds of dying from the Wuhan Flu are tiny, 99+% recovery rate.

    Covid rate = result of fake PCR tests . . . completely meaningless !

    the WRP/UCP have extended essential workers status to the oil patch in general and specifically the tar sands workers who are largely US citizens so they can go south for a visit then, come back to work in Canada without any isolation. This has pushed our COVID Rate up higher than India’s and they are in a state of extreme crisis,

    Premier Kenny has demonstrated for 14 months that he has absolutely no clue what he is doing concerning the Wuhan Flu.
    Has he called any of the Jurisdictions who have had success battling the CCP Pandemic?
    Did he talk to Gov DeSantis in Florida, Gov Noam in South Dakota . . . two of the most successful Govs on the continent. Of course he did not . . . even Texas and Arizona did a pretty good job . . . But Clueless Kenny is not interested, he just follows the lead of the CCP and locks everything down . . . OVER & OVER . . . each time expecting a DIFFERENT Result! Einstein said that is the definition of Insanity ! ! !

    the best thing we can do is continue supporting outlets like western standard that get the truth out there, by by supporting the JCCF and by ensuring the next election does not go to the UCP MLA’s that stand by and watch as the propagandists, HInshaw, Notley and Kenney all use each other to justify their draconian freedom grabs.
    Its also up to the police forces to defend our freedom. these media propagandists, these so called health experts and Politicians have no power unless the police and the military back them. I just hope we have enough good chief’s out there.

    “Covidism’s heaven, sought after by Jason Kenney and Rachel Notley alike, …” From my viewpoint, both Jason and Rachel are really on the same team, although they pretend to be on opposite sides of the political spectrum. I wouldn’t be surprised if they attend secret planning meetings together. Jason seems to be getting his cues from Rachel. Rachel says GraceLife Church should be shut down and the next thing you know, Jason and his gang shuts down the church. Rachel calls Jason a weak leader, which sets the stage for Jason to bring in draconian lockdown measures, with policing patio tables, just to make sure the ones at the table are all from the same household, and curfews. The evidence is there, guys. We’ve all been had.

Some commentators have noted the silence of Canada’s Left in the face of anti-government protests in Cuba. Why the reluctance to condemn a communist dictatorship? Well, as it turns out, some members of Canada’s Left have a fairly positive view of communism. One such prominent Canadian leftist was C.B. Macpherson (1911-1987), an internationally-renowned political scientist who taught politi

MORGAN: COVID has shown the need to overhaul Canada’s health care system

“We need to stop pretending the American and Canadian models of health provision are the only ones on earth. In fact, only two other countries on the planet explicitly ban private health care insurance: Cuba and North Korea.”

After his retirement, Ralph Klein was quoted expressing regret for having backed down on his "third-way" health care reform plan. We are paying the price today for the government's lack of will of yesteryear. Canada's health care system has long been considered a sacred cow. We have been taught since childhood that it's the best health care system on the planet; it's the very thing that defin

Simone Biles' choice to withdraw from the remaining Olympic events is respectable when you look at her reasoning. Characters like bombastic TV personality Piers Morgan would disagree, but Biles' choice to withdraw from the remaining gymnastics competitions in this year's Olympics is not only honourable but, sadly, predictable. The lives of professional athletes have always been caught up in a

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.
